  1. How do I Restore My Built-In Speakers as Playback Device?


    I wanted to temporarily disable my built-in speakers.

    I went to Control Panel.
    Clicked on "Sound" which displayed my menu of playback devices.
    Clicked on my built-in speakers.
    Clicked on "Properties."
    Clicked on "Disable."

    However this removed my speakers entirely from the menu and I can no longer use them!
    How do I restore them?

    I went to my Device Manager and the drivers are still loaded.

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

  2. Headphones don't work

    Hey,

    Thanks for the reply!

    When either of my sets of headphones are plugged in, neither of them appear as a playback device. The only playback device available is the speakers that are built into my laptop.

    However, checking the built-in speakers, the left one was set at 40% the value of the right one. Changing them to the same values solves the problem.

    Thank you for the help! <3

  3. Headset replaces the speakers

    When i connect my headset it "replaces" the speakers.

    Headphones do not occure as a separate devices in playback devices(disabled devices too), but they start working INSTEAD of speakers.

    So this is how it looks like:

    I have my Speakers in the playback devices. I connect headset - microphone appears in the recording devices, but nothign changes in the playback devices, howerver, the sound is now being run through the headphones and i cannot make it run through speakers unless
    i disattach the headphone cable. How to fix it?

    I want my headphones listed as a separate device, so i can run different sound though speakers and headphones, for instance - games and communication.

  4. How do I Restore My Built-In Speakers as Playback Device?

    I was uninstalling some software and did a reboot. Windows 10 detected there was a problem and asked if I wanted to Troubleshoot? I said yes, and it fixed it.

    Glitch? Bug? I am a novice compared to the rest of you, so have no idea.

    But obviously it was not supposed to totally erase the built-in speakers from the menu of playback devices, but at the same time it saw its mistake and corrected it.

    That's an old thing, not on W10 only, better thing to do is just to choose another device as default.
