Sound and microphone problems


I hear noise when connecting a headphone to the computer.

I do not hear sound from the built-in speakers.

Possible Solution

• Check if the earphone works correctly.

• Connect the earphone to other devices, such as a radio, to see if you can still hear that noise. If the noise persists, the earphone may be out of order.

• If you hear the noise only while inserting the earphone to the computer, it results from high instantaneous current. This is a normal phenomenon.

• Check if the speaker volume is set too low or is muted.

The external microphone does not work.

Certain audio files cannot be played, and the

Codec error messages appear.

• Click the volume icon, , in the system tray to check the Windows volume controls.

• If you are using a program which has its own volume control, ensure the volume level is properly set.

• Unplug your headphone and external microphone if they have been connected to your computer.

• Check if the external microphone is properly connected into the microphone jack on your computer.

• Check if Windows Media Player is set to automatically download codecs.

• Right-click on the menu bar, select Tools from the opened menu, and then click Options.

On the Player tab, in the Automatic updates area, select Once a day, and then click Apply and OK to complete the settings.

Then try playing the file again. If the audio file still cannot be played, it might require a codec that is not supported by Windows Media Player. For more information about available codecs, see the documentation for Windows Media Player at the Microsoft web site.
