Proper Guide to Fix ‘No Sound Coming from Computer’ Problem
Having no audio from your laptop or desktop’s speaker is a very common problem what most of the people experience during the PC’s lifespan. Most of the times this issue is coming from a faulty Audio Cable/Connection or maybe because of some mis-configured Windows Audio Drivers Setting.
And the best part is;
Fixing the sound problem isn’t that hard how it actually looks like. With all those messed up cables and the system’s drivers configuration, in no time you’ll be fix your computer on your own by just taking some simple steps shown in this tutorial.
#So, Let’s See What You Can Do About It
Normally there are three possible reasons why your PC isn’t able to give you the audio output and those are –
- Cable’s Fault
- Windows Sound Drivers fault
- Windows fault
Now you know all the three reason and in order to fix the issue, you’ll need to follow the step by step troubleshooting guide given down:
Step 1 – Troubleshooting Cable’s Fault
1.1 Sound Configuration – The first thing what you’ll need to make sure is that your Computer/Headphone and Speaker’s sound setting is set on minimum listenable Volume configuration.
1.2 Cable Properly Attached – Second, make sure that your speaker’s or headphone’s cable is attached properly to the computer.
If the wire looks loose to the Audio Port, then you can also try to twist the wire a bit, while running an audio on your computer. And that will confirm about, it’s the wire’s problem or not.
In case, if you have an extra audio cable, or maybe you are able to borrow it from some of your friend. Then it always good to troubleshoot with the working cables.
Step 2 – Troubleshooting Sound Drivers Fault
2.1 Troubleshoot Sound by Windows – Every latest version of Windows has their own problem troubleshooter, just to run the Operating System’s process properly.
This tool can also troubleshoot the sound and for that, you only need to find the troubleshoot in the Control Panel and then it will automatically fix the configuration related problem for you.
To open windows sound troubleshooter first you need to go to the Control Panel and then search for the “Troubleshoot Audio Playback” option. You can also take some help from the search bar too.
After when the troubleshooter opens up, just click on the “Next” button and starts to follow the instruction given on your computer’s screen.
If this step works for you, then that’s great, if not or maybe the troubleshooter shows you some kind of drivers or hardware related problem, then just continue to the next step.
2.2 Windows Drivers Got Disable – Sometimes Windows Audio Drivers got disable automatically by some viruses or malware software and start to creating this sound problem. To identify it’s really your sound drivers got disabled, you’ll just need to open your “Windows Device Manager” and check for the Audio Drivers listing.
To open windows device manager, press Windows + R Keyboard key and then type this command “devmgmt.msc” in Run Commander.
After when the device manager opens up, now expand the “Sound, video and game controllers” tab, to see that your sound drivers is really got disabled or not.
In case if you found your Sound Drivers is disabled, then you can quickly enable it by just selecting the Drivers name and after that click on the given ‘Enable’ button on Device Manager’s Menu.
2.3 Drivers Got Faulty – If in case you can’t be able to find your Audio Drivers in the Device Manager’s List or maybe your Audio Driver looks corrupted because of a yellow warning sign stick to it. In both cases, you’ll need to update or reinstall the drivers.

Step 3 – Troubleshooting Windows Fault
Anything’s possible and yes it can be your windows too, who is actually got that corrupted now which isn’t be able to operate the drivers properly.
Now in this condition, there are only three things what you can do to fix this problem and those are:
3.1 Restore Your Windows – System Restore is a great tool found on every latest version of windows which can restore your operating systems configuring and files to the restore point, which is created by you or by some software in the past.

3.2 Fixing by Using Extra Hardware – The good news is, not every Windows is corrupted. It’s possible that it might not be able to work with a particular type of hardware (or maybe it’s possible that your PC’s Audio Jack is faulty too). So, the good part is, you can actually use some extra hardware in your computer to get the new audio output connection.
I’m taking about the Sound Card, which also comes in USB and that will help you not to reinstall your operating system.
