A few weeks ago my MacBook Air suddenly would not play any audio. It would happne off and on. Usually the sound would come back after restarting. Now, though, I can't seem to get my audio to come back at all, no matter what I do. Here are a few screenshots to give you an idea of what's going on: I've restarted. I cleared permissions with Onyx. I verified and repaired disk permissions with Disk Utitlity. Still no audio.
MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.3), 13" 2.13GHz Core 2 Duo 128GB SSD
This just happened to me the other day, I plugged a pair of apple headphones in used them and then unplugged them. The next day I noticed that I was not getting any sound from my macbook air, no startup sound, no OS sounds, and even the headphones are not detected when plugged in. I've tried all the tricks and so far nothing.
Of course my mac is just out of warranty at the end of March and I'm going to imagine this is a small fortune to get fixed. Since last time I took it in while it was in warranty they wanted 900 bucks to replace my HDD
Anyone else run across this, I'm thinking of just throwing it on craiglist or ebay for like 900 bucks as is and buying a normal laptop
Hey, my macbook was getting rather slow so I decided to do a clean install of Leopard, but now I have absolutely no sound whatsoever apart from the startup chime! The volume keys now don't control volume and instead do expose and dashboard.
I did however install it with a Leopard disk that was from a shop and not one of the grey ones that came with the computer, is that the problem? If so how can I fix it?
My MacbookPro sound suddenly stopped working. It was working fine yesterday, but rght after I unplugged the headset, I don't have any sound anymore. I do not have any red light on the audio jack. I do not have any internal and output devices found under the System Preferences. I already tried resetting the PRAM and NVRAM, SMC and nothing works! I have the latest verion 10.7.4, Core i7.
My sound has completely quit working. In the sound system prefs I get a massage saying "No output devices found". If I press the volums button keys the onscreen display comes up but has a 'no access' icon on it (a circle with a line through it). The icon in the toolbar has also vanished and there's just a blank space in its place.
Oddly whatever happened also seems to have effected my ability to view Flash movies -*the will play for a few seconds an then pause *they don't stutter they just pause. I think that whatever the issue is it was caused by a force shut down. All my applications were hanging so I had to press down the power button for a few seconds. Since then nothing!
This also effects the start-up sound which I don't get and all users of the machine are the same so it's not a case of deleting users prefs. So far I reinstalled the latest system using combo updater, run disk utility to repair disk/privileges (from start up disk) and zapped the PRAM.
I had a first gen aluminum 13" Macbook that I spilled beer on. It was basically a write-off, but fortunately the HD was not damaged.I just got my 13" Macbook Pro today, and replaced the new HD with my old one. Everything is working fine, except that there is no sound.When I go to System->Sound I see "No Output devices found", and when I press the sound buttons on the keyboard, the speaker is grayed out.I know this is not a Hardware issue for a couple reasons. First, it properly 'chimes' on startup. Second, I did try running the computer with the new hard drive, and during the sound was working properly, volume adjustment buttons working, etc.
Occasionally after booting back into OS X from bootcamp (windows 7 home premium), I will not have any audio output devices. If I restart OS X again they return, anyone have what maybe happening here? This is on a 09 MP...
All of a sudden my mini's sound output stopped working and now doesn't recognize any output devices. worked earlier today not now, didn't add anything. system pref - sound - output = "no output devices found
Just today I have installed an application which was to do with sound switching , called "soundflower" once iv installed and run it there was an option "create multiple sound switch" did chose and start to creating a multiple, as soon as it started my sound card panel display as "no sound card founded" and my sound icon on the top bar turned to light gray.
Double click on that and when it opens you will see your hard drive (usually Macintosh HD) on the left. Highlight your hard drive and click on Verify Disk on the far right. If that is OK click on Repair Permissions on the left. If Verify Disk is not OK try to Repair. If Repair is successful then Repair Permissions if it is not successful let me know. But problem still remains.
So I started up my macbook this morning and have been using it for awhile when I went to go play some music and can't get any sound. When I hit the volume buttons it shows a shadow of the speaker logo and a circle with a line through it under the volume bar. I have tried a restart and also went into sound controls, where it says "The device has no output devices" . What can I do/what's going on?
I picked up a really cool wireless USB speaker set and want to use it with my current gen iMac running Snow Leopard. Problem is that as far as I can tell, and I've done some searching, that it's either the USB audio, or my internal iMac speakers, one or the other - not both.
could use both outputs at the same time? Internal speakers and the wireless USB ones?
I was with sounds problems using OS 10.2 and I decided to format my disk and make a clean install. After installing 10.2, my sound was working well. I upgraded to 10.2.1 and in the following restart when I tried to use iTunes, no sound at all. When I hit play not even the cursor moves; nothing happens. I opened the Sound control panel, and in the Outpu tab there's a message saying: " no output devices were found" I cannot figure out what's happening. My computer sound is OK; everything works fine when I restart using OS 9.2.2.
I have multiple displays connected via the HDMI port and one to the mini port as well and a theater sound system attached to the headphone jack. How do you turn on sound output to both HDMI and headphone jack. If the headphone jack is plugged in, it always defaults to that device. I am unable to hear the audio at the remote displays without removing the headphone jack.
I just got this new iMac that I got used and the sound on the computer does not seem to be working, I have tried doing what the computer tells me and going into System Preferences and selecting the sound option, but the sound seems to have been permanently disabled and shows that there are no output or input devices available, when clearly the monitor has speakers. whats more, is that the volume icon does not show up in the menu bar even when I select that I want it in the menu bar.
I was in Audio MIDI Setup and I clicked one of the checkboxes to add a device to something or something like that and all the devices vanished from the list and sound stopped working. After closing Audio MIDI Setup I am unable to open it again, even after restarting and getting all the updates. Skype now freezes and doesn't load. Sound preferences also have trouble and freeze up if I try to load them. I would really like to have sound from my computer again!
i'm a HUGE gamer, so the first thing I did once I loaded this new computer up was install my copy of Windows Vista on it using Boot Camp Assistant. The installation went completely smoothly, so I then proceeded to install the Boot Camp Drivers onto my new and fresh and clean Windows Installation.
I restarted the computer and everything seemed to be in working order...but there are two relatively MAJOR problems:
One, the one that is the most pressing, is the sound. When I started up after installing all of the boot camp drivers, I couldn't get a single audio device to get recognized by my Vista Home Premium installation. I tried disabling and re-disabling other drivers in the Device Manager, and when I try to download new drivers for the one audio device that has an error sign next to it, Vista claims that it is already updated to the latest drivers, so it will not install new ones. I even went onto cirrus' website to download their official drivers, and the same thing happened.
I have an iMac at home. I have two airport express devices with hifi systems connected. I use iTunes to play music, podcasts,radio, .. on the different hifi systems dependent on where I am in the appartment.When using the remote control on the iMac it seems to me that it isn't possible to select the wireless devices for sound output.
My sound keeps turning off. When I check the settings, the output device switches randomly between Internal and Digital output. I have no idea where the Digitial Output is coming from and this started about a month again. It switches randomly and then I loose all sound for a few seconds. Sometimes it happens once then stops for a few days, other times it switches back and forth for 5 min. No idea!!!
I just jailbroke my iPhone 3GS and installed MyWi to work with my iPad. I also tried it on my MacBook Pro using Bluetooth. After I paired my iPhone and MacbBook Pro together everything worked fine. Now under the Airport Menu I see a separate category labeled "Devices" which is just below where my Home Network is.
My questions is how do I go about deleting this? I've tried everything. I deleted my device under Bluetooth Preferences, quit MyWi, messed around with the Network Preferences and it still appears under the Airport Menu. I even clicked connect but of course that doesn't work since I quit everything and deleted the device in Bluetooth settings. It's not even listed under "Preferred Networks" when you click on the advanced tab. It appears as "(my last name) Hotspot" and is under a tab labeled "Devices"
I use an external monitor with my macbook, it's a couple of years old 17" Sony TFT. I connect it to the macbook through a DVI cable into the adaptor, into the mini DVI port on the mac. About 90% of the time I do this, the second display shows the correct graphics but is tinted fluorescent green, however if I play aorund enough with the connection, it goes back to full colours. Is this something a genius could fix, or do you have any recommendations about what to do?
I have a white Macbook, Intel Core Duo 2, 2 Gb Ram. (October 2008) Under Leopard, my volume (audio output is a shame); under bootcamp with Windows XP on the hard drive, volume is almost double: is there any work around on this?
I don't think the IR receiver at the front of my MBP will be used, seeing as I'm not looking into buying an apple remote anytime soon. However, I was wondering if there was any software out there that would let me use it with other devices.
One specific thing i was wondering was if there was any way of accessing the IR receiver in boot camp Windows 7 to receive signals from an Xbox 360 controller (without the USB receiver attachment sold by MS)
I recently bought the new base model 13-inch MacBook Pro, which was running perfectly until yesterday. Yesterday, the machine ran out of battery power and went into safe sleep. When I plugged in the power cord and woke it up, the bluetooth symbol in the menu bar had a jagged line through it. On restart, the bluetooth symbol had simply disappeared, and system profiler is showing bluetooth as "No information found.". I have had this problem before with a 2006 macbook, but it was solved by a restart. On searching the web I have found a number of suggested solutions, each of which I have tried: resetting PRAM, resetting SMC, deleting various bluetooth preferences, reinstalling OS X. None of these suggested solutions have worked.
I've a Macbook that was running Tiger. The other day it froze, and on restart it couldn't find the startup disk. Tried to run Disk Utility but it didn't even see the disk. I tried the disk in a cradle on another computer but it wouldn't work.
So, I reasoned it was a fault with the drive. Bought a new Hitachi drive. Put it in the Macbook. Started the install but exactly the same problem - the disk is not to be seen, not by the installer, not by Disk Utility, not in System Profiler.
I ran the Apple Hardware Test and chose the extended one with looping. Ran it for hours. It says that it can't find a problem.
my new mbp has some isues with its sound ...there is no audio device in the prefrence/sound have restarted and have done the hardware test many time. few days back hardware test use to work for me getting this issue fixed but now notting works..
Everytime I try to go on the Internet my MacBook pro tell me that the domain is not found. It is not my wifi. I went into the network diagnostic and it said that there is no problem with the connection.
I have to link my external mixer to a set of speakers. Rather than buying stereo speakers, can I just get an RCA cable to run from my mixer's output into the 3.5mm jack (next to headphones jack) on my computer?
Will the sound then rout from my mixer through into my computer's speakers?
I tought that the problem was with my specific usb device, but i'v already tried with the 2 USB ports and with several usb devices. Everytime I insert a USB device into my computer, a screen appears saying that i need to turn off my computer and that i need to click on the power button for several seconds to do so. This has become pretty annoying since i can not transfer files nor make any backup on my computer because everytime i insert a usb (external hard drive or simple usb device) the screen appears and i don't know what to do. Does anybody know the reason why this is happening or a solution for this problem?
