internal speakers disabled and cant enable again

I was trying to connect my laptop to my HD TV so I made the HMDI my default playback but I disabled the internal speakers and now I can't figure out how to get them back on. The sound plays through my tv but when I unplug the HDMI cord the speakers don't play. Im using an HP Pavillion dv7 -3065dx model.

Re: internal speakers disabled and cant enable again

Hi,

 

Right click the speaker icon in your Taskbar and click on Playback Devices.  Right click in an empty area of this window and make sure there is a tick next to 'Show disconnected devices' and 'Show disabled devices'.  If you now see your 'Speakers and Headphones' option, right click this entry and either Enable it or Set as Default depending on the state it is in.

 

Regards,

Re: internal speakers disabled and cant enable again

I  tried the fix and I have nothing to choose from when I right click on the speaker icon and then select play back devices.  I'm afraid that I already deleted them.
