Laptop sound Not working. 5 things to DIY. Solved

Today I am writing to solve one of the most common problem we guys face in our laptop while we attend meetings and suddenly you experience”laptop sound not working”.

Yes, this has happend even with me where I had to attend one POSH meeting and suddenly my speaker and mic both stopped working and I have to break from the call.

However I checked with my IT guy and he took control from me and did some changes post which speaker started working but Mic was still a problem. We decided to solve this tomorrow as solving speaker problem took us some time.

However I will share some tips whenever you face such problem and you cant reach to the IT guy for solving this.

Steps to solve “Laptop sound not working”

The moment you face the problem of laptop sound, then go and check the sound setting by right clicking at the bottom right corner of your PC/Laptop.

If this is alright then you should trouble shoot the speaker setting which will indicate the problem with the speaker
