Wave control on Master volume control just stops

Whenever I want to listen to music, I have to open my master volume controls and turn up the wave. After I turn up the wave, everything is fine for approximately 45 seconds to 1:30 seconds. Then the sound disappears. The slider on the wave control does not reset to zero but if I just click on it without moving it the sound comes back. This will last about the same amount of time before I have to click on it again to get the sound to come back. I use Spotify for most of my music listening but it does happen with windows media player, iTunes, even Youtube and such. I have removed and re-installed Realtek High Definition audio program and all the drivers. Same thing... I have searched for weeks on the internet looking for a solution and cannot find a single thing. I see a lot of posts that are very similar but most of them are dealing with Winamp problems which I do not have. Any help would be much appreciated. Yes, all my audio devices are installed properly and are working normally. It's just strange that I can click on my wave control and I have sound again for a short time.

SOURCE: no sound for windows xp.

Go back into your device manager. Rught click on your sound card or sound device and say uninstall. After it is uninstalled, don't close device manager. Go to very top to your your computer's name or my computer if you didn't name it. Right click and click on scan for hardware changes. Windows will find your device and reinstall in a second. This will give you cack your volume control and sound.

SOURCE: I can not play audio files

In the windows media player go to > now playing - more options - devices - speakers then changed the audio device to use your soundcard.

Also, uninstall any other players, they usually interfere with each other.

SOURCE: Wave on master volume keeps decreasing on its own

I have nver come accross a setting that will lock the volume to a set level before, but here are a couple of possibilities that you may want to investigate for the cause.

  1. Not all programs use the master volume control, so do, but most adjust the sound by the wav output. Put the mixer onto the desktop, open things like winamp, media player etc and adjust the volume controls on those to see what is doing what.
  2. If you have a multimedia keyboard with a volume control on it, make sure when your typing it's not adjusting the volume at the same time. Again, put the mixer on the desktop out of the way and type as you would normally. It could even be just the vibrations from typing setting it off.
See how you go and post back your results

SOURCE: Impossible to install driver for Realtek High Definition 1.81

Hi there,
Since after installing the Service Pack your drivers are update. Now you can not use the previous one.

Since after many trial, your driver is now got corrupt. I will suggest you to Roll Back the System from the Service pack 3 to Service Pack 2. And then go for it.

Otherwise use the Repair window method and then reinstall the original drivers.

Let me know the issue after this.

Regards
Ellin

Hello, im using sony vaio VPCEB3J1E,speaker is not working but head is working,what is the problem?


For Vista/windows 7
Check with volume settings.

Right click on the speaker icon in taskbar and select volume control options.

Put a check mark on "All devices currently playing sound".

Make sure you have "The default communication device unchecked".

Place a check mark on both speakers and headphones.

For Windows XP

- Speakers, Headphones

In "Control Panel", select "Switch to Classic View", and open "Sounds and Audio Devices".

In "Sounds and Audio Devices Properties", click the "Audio" tab, and click the "Volume" of "Sound playback".

On the "Master Volume" screen, click "Properties" in the "Options" menu.

Add a check mark to "Playback" of "Adjust volume for" on the "Properties" screen, and check marks to "Master Volume" and "Wave" for the control to be displayed, and click the "OK" button.

On the "Master Volume" screen, remove the check marks from "Mute all" of "Master Volume" and "Mute" of "Wave".
Note: The settings may differ depending on the PC you are using. Please check items such as sound in the manual for the PC you are using.

Why our head phones on Computer are not working


Is there a switch to turn on the headphone port? Is there a control on the headphones to adjust the volume (on a volume level on the side of the laptop)? Also, when the headphones are plugged into the laptop, go into your sound settings and turn up the master volume (and wave volume if it is low.. If that works, make sure to turn it back down when disconnecting the headphones).

Also, do the headphones work in another device (stereo, etc..)?

Sound only works while testing and is usually low. DVDs or any sound from the internet do not work. This problem has been there for a long time and its really irritating me. Thank god i found this site....


I will assume you have windows xp, since you did not state with OS you are using. Is the sound turned up on the volume control? On the volume control make sure both the wave and master volume are correctly set.

If you do not know how to open the volume control, goto start, then click run, not type "sndvol32".

If this is not the case then you are having driver issues with your sound card. Make sure the sound drivers are installed and configured.

First check the volume control then check the drivers.
