I have a hp elitebook 6930p the sound is not fine. I mean the music is playing fine but the words spoken in songs and movies are not audible I don't know what to do


Laptop's are not known for there sound, the smaller the laptop the smaller the speakers are by design. That said, try different Media players with Equalizers, Real Player, VLC, etc. You can find freeware Media Players here: http://www.filehippo.com/ OR a External Speaker, I use the Bose Sound Dock: http://www.bose.com/controller?url=/shop_online/digital_music_systems/sounddock_systems/sounddock/index.jsp

Acer timeline x has sound glitch


On-line or offline? Try shutting down some of your running programs. Try another Media Player. Does this happen with ALL music and movies?

The sound on my firefox browser is low but when I listen to Window media player, it is very loud.


Try following solutions, if it works for you

To switch between speakers and headphones on Firefox,
make sure your headphones are plugged in first,
Right click on volume on the bottom right corner of your screen,
Then select Volume Mixer,
then double click on System sounds,
Click on the playback tab,
then you could switch between speakers or headphones, just select one and click "set default" and OK
only sounds in firefox will play in the headphones,
and windows media player will play on the speakers

You could leave your windows media player to play on the speakers while you listen to firefox videos in the headphones

If you want the media music player to play in your headphones also;
You have to change it in the media player program,
go to options on the media player, then look for playback devices, there should be 2 options speakers and headphones,
just pick one

I usually set the firefox audio to my headphones,
and a media player to the speakers

Please rate & vote if you like solution...

Thanks

Check your audio section in bios, if it is enabled then boot the computer and go to control panel and there you have to select "sound and audio devices", now click sound button on the screen and play the windows sound given on the screen your play button will be activated after you select the windows sounds,

If it works then ok else you have to uninstall your sound driver and reinstall the perfect driver for the laptop model

Windows media has sound no visual when playing


Your media player might be having problems getting the video feed from the USB. try copying the file to your local disk and play the movie from there.

No sound dell Inspiron 8200


If your touch pad doesn't work too, there is a connector under the keyboard that affects both the sound and touch pad. It may have come disconnected.

No audio file will play on WMP, no dvd or audio disk will play...


Windows Media Player cannot play several files in the playlist. This might be caused by one or more problems.
To find information about the specific problems, click the Now Playing tab, and then click the blue or red icon next to each file in the List pane.
In some cases, you might encounter this error message if there is a problem with your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. For example:
  • Your sound device requires an updated driver. To determine if an updated driver is available, see Windows Update or see the sound device manufacturer's Web site.
  • Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see Windows Help and Support or refer to your sound device's documentation.
  • You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device, and then try to play the file again

You need a new DVD codec. If you have a copy of WinDVD, give it an install. Otherwise, try the free codec on www.divx.com.
