audio cable problem

  gav223 20:00 15 Jan 08

Hi, I have bought an audio cable and have connected it to my laptop, but it doesn't produce any sound. I'm not sure if I have to download anything for it to work, so can someone help me.

First of all what make of laptop

Is the audio cable a normal stereo audio cable with a 3.5 mm plug at both ends?

What are you connecting it to speakers, TV audio in connector , a LCD monitor audio input etc

Is it plug into the headphone socket and you have checked that the volume is not muted and the volume control is set to a high level

If you can see the small speaker in the task bar double click on it the volume control setting will appear

If there is a tick on any of the mute control deselect them

You can also check the audio settings from the control panel

Start- Setting-Control Panel-Click- Sounds and Audio Devices

You can now test and adjust the audio setting on the laptop

I assure you that I am not messing about. Ihave a 15 pin pc cable connecting my laptop to lcd tv. I also have an audio cable.
A programme opens called ffd show when these are connected. Sound is coming through my laptop and also through my headphones, but not from the tv.

Ok - so why didn't you tell us that to begin with - we do sometimes get people trying to be clever and wind us up!

I think first place to start, is to make sure you have all the latest Codecs installed.

gav223, you would be surprised by whats posted here sometimes...
Think we need to recap a bit this thread has rather lost the plot a bit.
Are you useing your TV as an external sound/video device for your lappy.
It maybe a setting within the TV that is the issue as you have sound from your lappy and headphones...

Hi, I suggested Codecs because of FFD Show.
