    Monitor now showing as "not plugged in" in Sounds Settings - cannot get sound!


    For a week or so now, I haven't been able to get sounds to play through my monitor


    Monitor is plugged in to the graphics card via DP to HDMI cable - been working fine for the past 2 years


    Sounds can play through my headphones when I select the headphones device using the sounds icon in the taskbar, but monitor does not even show up now. Computer thinks the monitor is disconnected for sound purposes despite that it is connected (graphics are displayed fine!)


    I've tried re-enabling in the Sounds settings applet but to no avail


    Has a recent Windows update caused this? help!

    :)

  2. dual monitors stops sound

    Hi David,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    To assist you better, I suggest you to answer the below questions.

    • When will the sound disable, when playing through main monitor or the extended monitor?
    • Did you try enabling the sound from the sound drivers and check if it helps?
    • Since from when are you facing this issue?
    This issue causes because the monitor automatically takes the HDMI sound as the Default input. Disable and enable the speakers and check if it helps.

    I suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.

    • Right click on the volume control and then
      Properties
      ,
    • When you connect the HDMI it becomes the default output device, even though it has no speakers.
    • You need to change this back to "Speakers" and set as default.

    Good surround sound headset

    I know you say you're not that guy, but stepping into the $250+ range really brings a change in build quality that might have you never having to buy another set. Otherwise, getting 6 speakers with decent sound in a headset is hard, and that's what you are asking for, and I have no suggestions, but just a bump up the list. *Stick Out Tongue Monitor now showing as "not plugged in" in Sounds Settings - cannot get sound! :p

    Sound Quality


    One thing that sticks out from looking at your "My Computer" specs. You list "ONBOARD 6 CHANNEL (5.1) HIGH DEF AUDIO (AS STANDARD)" which suggests you do not have the correct sound hardware driver. Your motherboard has Realtek sound and the first step is to install the Realtek sound drivers. My ASUS also came with Sonic Studio 2 which is a sound enhancement package. Check the ASUS install disc to see if you have something similar.

    May not be a speaker problem.
