This is quite common among all of us that we accidentally mute our laptop’s volume in windows and misunderstand this as a speaker malfunction. Click the speaker icon in the bottom-right corner of the windows taskbar and make sure your laptop’s volume is unmuted and turned up.
When you drag up the windows volume slider, you will hear ‘Ding’ if not then the problem lies somewhere else. If you hear ‘Ding’ then there are chances the app you are using is muted. Make sure that the music player or the video player’s volume is unmuted and turn up the volume.
The same thing goes for Youtube and other streaming platforms.
If you are facing problems with your laptop’s built-in speakers, try with some headphones or speakers. If sound works with them then you have a hardware problem with the built-in speakers.
If you have a pair of wired USB headphones, try plugging those in too, since they can bypass the default audio driver and indicate where the problem is.
It’s possible that your speakers are working just fine, but windows are directing sound to the wrong output device. To fix this, right-click the speaker icon in the Windows taskbar and choose the sound audio preferences. choose the Playback tab, then search for the device you wanted to use.
