Fix 1: Troubleshoot hardware issues

Before we make any changes, we might have to troubleshoot hardware issues. To do so: 

  1. Make sure to check your speaker and headphone connections for loose cables or the wrong jack.
  2. Try connecting your speaker or headphone device to a different port and see if this fixes the problem.

If the no sound on the ASUS laptop problem still persists, then move on to Fix 2, below.

Fix 2: Make sure the volume is audible

Sometimes you can’t hear sound from your speakers simply because the volume is mute or set too low.

To make sure the volume is audible:

  1. Click the sound icon  on the lower-right of your screen, then move the volume slider all the way to at least halfway up.

    If there’s a volume control on the app you’re playing, make sure to slide the volume bar to an audible level too.

  2. Test if you can hear any sound from your ASUS laptop. If not, then move on to Fix 3, below.

Fix 3: Set default audio devices

Ideally, when a new audio device is inserted, Windows will automatically set it as the default audio playback device. But that’s not always the case and sometimes we’ll have to set default devices manually.

To do so:

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R at the same time to invoke the Run command. Then type control in the text field and click OK.
  2. Select Small icons next to View by and click Sound.

  3. In the Playback tab, click on the audio device you wish to play, then click Set Default. Click OK.
    If the audio device you’re to play doesn’t show up in the device list, and right-click on the empty space and tick Show Disabled Devices. Then right-click on the device once it appears and click Enable before you do step 2).
  4. Check to see if your ASUS no sound problem has been fixed. If yes, then great! But if it’s still no joy, please move on to Fix 4, below.

Fix 4: Disable audio enhancements

Audio enhancements, as the name suggests, are features that allow for highest sound fidelity from your hardware. But depending on your configuration, they can also interfere with your system and trigger sound problems. So we should disable audio enhancements to see if it fixes the no sound on laptop problem. 

Here’s how:

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R at the same time to invoke the Run command. Then type control in the text field and click OK.
  2. Select Small icons next to View by and click Sound.

  3. In the Playback tab, right-click on your default audio device and click Properties.

  4. Click the Enhancements tab, then tick the box for Disable all enhancements and click OK.
  5. For some sound cards, the options may differ. So you can try to see if there’s an Advanced tab, where you can untick the box for Enable audio enhancements.
  6. Test your audio device and see if the no sound issue is resolved. If yes, then congrats! But if the issue remains, you should try Fix 5, below.
