How do I transfer sound from my computer headset to the speakers?

Asked by Adagio (10613 points ) August 24th, 2012

The sound from my computer normally comes out from the speakers next to the monitor but for some unknown reason today the sound is only coming through my microphone headset earpiece speaker which I normally have switched off. Your help to rectify matters would be greatly appreciated.

Try switching ports.

Have you unplugged the headset? I don’t have a switch on the headphone jack (I have one inline on the cord). When I plug in the headphones, then that’s where the sound is routed. It’s automagic.

Unplug the headset cable and plug in the speaker cable in it’s place.

If you are utilizing Windows, right-click on the small speaker icon on the Start bar. This icon should be located in the lower-right hand corner of the screen. A menu will appear. Select ‘Playback Devices’. Select your speakers from the list of devices. Click Set Default.

It transpires that someone pushed the mute button on top of one of speakers and I made an adjustment in All Programs to turn off the headset speaker. I’m wearing my headset all the time because I operate the computer entirely by voice. Thanks to everyone for their suggestions, I much appreciate your help.
