    Hi
    About a month ago I turned on my PC to discover no sound from my speakers but there is sound from my headphones.
    The speakers are only a few months old and work on other thing so it cant be them.
    In the playback device speaker is selected and the bars are moving as normal.

    Any idea's

    Not a Networking issue. What OS are you running?

    No speaker sound from anywhere on my PC so I cant see it being networking issue.
    The sounds been fine for about 3 years then one day just stopped.

    Moved thread from Networking to Windows 10 forum. (Maybe should be hardware; hard to tell.)

    How are the speakers connected? Are you sure that there is nothing wrong with the connection or the cable(s)?

    They are connected to a Pioneer amp, Ive disconnected and reconnected using different cable wire and still no sound. Ive also run the above troubleshooter and it just says 'Generic audio driver unfixed'

    Not computer speakers they are KRK R6 monitor speakers
    Yes a Pioneer A-20 Amplifier - 100W

    This was worked perfectly for about 2.5 years

    Double check the connection from the PC to the AMP to the Speakers.

    3.5mm Jack, Green port from PC splits into Red and White Phono into one of the input channels on the back of the amp.

    Make sure the input selection on the front of the amp is set to the same input the phono cables are plugged into.

    Make sure the speaker cables (either raw copper or banana plugs) have both + and - lines plugged into left and right outputs of the amp respectively.

    Make sure both the speaker lights are on on the amp.

    As you stated sound is coming through the headphones, the amp should be plugged into the port your headphones are and the headphones should be plugged into the front of the amp when you want to use them.

    Finally check the direct button as if you have all dials turned down you may not get any audio.

    If you have done all of that and still no audio, get another device such as an MP3 player or a phone and plug the 3.5mm jack into that and see if you get any audio, that will tell you if its the amp setup or the PC.

    Hi there

    My sound is back, dont know what it was but I used new speaker cable and I followed your instructions all cables was plugged in correct and the amp etc was set up correct so it must of been a cable/connection problem.

    Outstanding
    Big thanks
