  1. Speaker connection


    I recently purchased a Dell laptop with Win 11. I have two external monitors with speakers. I've had the speakers connected for audio. On two occasions the system completed a software update. When complete the audio switched to the speakers in the laptop and the option to use the monitor speakers was no longer available. After the first disconnection, I updated the software and the monitor speakers reconnected. This morning I went through the same drill, but they aren't showing as an option. How can I fix this issue?

    :)

    Speakers and headphones work at the same time

    Hi.

    Let us isolate your concern by answering these few questions.

    • Have you tried connecting your headphones directly to your desktop?
    • Does your speaker work normally when connected to your desktop?
    You may try the following steps to help resolve your concern:

    • Unplug or Disconnect your speaker from the desktop.
    • Connect your headphone directly to the desktop.
    If the headphone works properly when directly connected to the desktop, we suggest that you contact your speaker manufacturer for assistance.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Speaker connection

    Windows 10 recognizes my UE Megaboom as a headset and not a speaker will not work?

    Hi Rachael,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I suggest you try the steps listed below and check if it works. This issue could be because of the Headphones BT SPEAKER Stereo being set as default. I suggest you to try the steps listed below and check if it works.



    • Pair the speaker with your PC.
    • Right click the Windows icon on the taskbar and choose
      Device Manager.

    • Expand Sound, video, and game controllers
      and right click on your Bluetooth speaker (BT SPEAKER Stereo).
    • Choose Disable and acknowledge the confirmation popup. Wait for the screen to refresh.
    • Right click on the same device again and Enable.
    • Exit Device Manager and see if the issue persist.


    Regards,
