The ThinkPad T60 comes with built-in speakers on the laptop's case, enabling you to hear system sounds or any other audio from the computer. The computer's speakers are controlled by both the audio buttons on the computer's case, as well as the audio software in the computer's operating system. If the computer's speakers stop working and you can't hear any sound from the ThinkPad T60, troubleshoot the situation to determine the cause and solve the problem.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Press the computer's quick access volume controls at the top of the keyboard. Press the "Volume Up" button and the "Mute" button to make the speakers work.

  2. 2

    Double-click the speaker icon on the right side of the task bar on the computer's screen. Click on the box next to "Mute" to remove the check mark, if there is one.

  3. 3

    Click on each of the volume control bars. Drag the mouse upward as you hold down the mouse button to increase the volume to the highest level.

  4. 4

    Plug in some headphones or external speakers into the computer's audio jacks. If the headphones or external speakers work and the computer's built-in speakers do not, take the computer to a repair shop for servicing.

  5. 5

    Navigate to Lenovo's website, select "Support" and then "Think-brand Products." Click the T60 in the list of products, then click the "BIOS" option in the list on the next page.

  6. 6

    Follow the instructions on the screen to update the computer's BIOS. Turn off the computer once you have installed the latest BIOS, then turn the computer back on and press the "F11" key when the boot screen appears. Click "PC Doctor" and click "Diagnose," then "Audio" to determine the cause of the sound not working.
