WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Volume problems on computers often happen for a variety of reasons. Volume troubleshooting, however, is one of the easiest problems to troubleshoot because there are only a few things that usually cause the problems. Usually the problem isn't even an error but just merely an adjustment that needs to be made. Test your speakers. This is the first thing you should check if you can't hear anything coming out of your computer. First try turning up the volume know and make sure you are in fact turning the volume knob and not a tone or balance knob. Make sure the speakers are completely plugged in to the wall and the computer. Test with another set of speakers or headphones after you have done this. Check the computer volume level. On the taskbar is a volume icon, which usually looks like a small speaker. Click on the icon and turn the volume up. Make sure it has not been muted. Double clicking on the icon will bring up a panel of several volume controls. Try turning up the volume on each slider. Go to Control Panel and choose "Sounds and Audio Devices." Under the volume tab, click speaker volume and turn up the level if needed. Turn up the application volume. Most programs that use sound have an additional volume control just for that program. Find the volume control and turn it up. Usually it is located in the lower right or left corner on the program, but you may have to search for it. Troubleshoot the sound card. Download the latest drivers from your sound card manufacturer's website. Go to Control panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager. Click on "Sound, Video and Game Controllers." Click on your sound card, select the driver tab and then click on "Update Driver." Point to the file where you saved the latest drivers from the website. After this, restart your computer. The speaker plug/outlets is usually at the back of the computer or if its a laptop on the side
you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make

sure the connection is good with no dust as dust causes static electricity clean your computer of dust using a can of compressed air or fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is

no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit

dust causes static to build up in a computer If this doesn't solve your problem, try reseating the sound card into your computer. Hope this helps.

Distorted sound playing music from Youtube or BBC Iplayer


First off, most Youtube videos have bad sound but most likely is you need to lower the volume for FLASH via the sound mixer. Both are using flash. Turn down the volume for flash videos. You also have volume control with the video themselves.

The file format is not supported


Hi driddle00...
This information came from the Microsoft WebPage:

"Cannot play back the file. The format is not supported. This behavior occurs because PowerPoint can play back only QuickTime movies (.mov and .qt files) that use compression schemes with corresponding Media Control Interface (MCI)-compatible codecs.

A codec (compressor/decompressor) is an algorithm or scheme that is used to record digital video or audio. For example, when you transmit video over the Internet, the video must be compressed on the sending end and decompressed on the receiving end. A codec can be chosen based upon the user's audio or image quality and image size preferences.

When you read a QuickTime movie, a Video for Windows decompressor decompresses the QuickTime files. If the decompressor does not support the compression method used by the QuickTime movie, the decompressor cannot display the movie on the screen.
To work around this behavior, use one of the following methods. uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 1: Create a hyperlink to the .mov file loadTOCNode(2, 'workaround'); Create a hyperlink to the .mov file, and then let the QuickTime Player for Windows play the file instead. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Select the object or text that you want to assign the hyperlink to.
  2. On the Insert menu, click Hyperlink.
  3. Under Link to, click Existing File or Web Page.
  4. Select the QuickTime movie that you want to play, and then click OK.

    Note Under Look in, click Current Folder to see a list of files, click Browsed Pages to see a list of recently viewed Web pages, or click Recent Files to see a list of recently used files.
During the slide show, click the linked object or text to play the movie. If a valid player is available, the player starts, and then the player plays the QuickTime movie. uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 2: Convert QuickTime movies to AVI format loadTOCNode(2, 'workaround'); Note In the following steps, you must use QuickTime 4.0 Pro. You cannot follow these steps with the basic version of QuickTime 4.0. The steps are the same for both Windows and Macintosh versions of QuickTime 4.0.

You can use other QuickTime editing programs instead of QuickTime 4.0 Pro. To do this, see the QuickTime documentation for the relevant steps.

To convert the QuickTime movies to AVI format, follow these steps:
  1. Start QuickTime Pro, and then open the file that you want to convert.
  2. On the File menu, click Export.
  3. Set the Export file type to Movie to AVI.
  4. Click Options, and then click Settings.
  5. In the Compressor group, click the list of compressors, and then select one from the previous list. Cinepak is a popular format. Select the format that you think works best with the movie.
  6. Make sure that you change the extension on the file name to .avi, and then click Save.

uparrow.gifBack to the top Verify that QuickTime movies are compatibleYou can use Microsoft Media Player to... loadTOCNode(1, 'moreinformation'); Verify that QuickTime movies are compatible loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); You can use Microsoft Media Player to verify that a QuickTime movie is compatible with PowerPoint.

Note Microsoft Media Player (Mplayer.exe or Mplay32.exe) is a different program than Windows Media Player. Microsoft Media Player is included with various versions of the Windows operating systems, and is an MCI-compliant device. Windows Media Player, however, is a new technology that does not rely on MCI to play various forms of media. Windows Media Player can play a wider range of video and audio formats than Microsoft Media Player can play.

To determine the compatibility of the movie, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type the appropriate command for your operating system:
    • In Microsoft Windows 98 or Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition, type mplayer.exe, and then click OK.
    • In Microsoft Windows NT 4.0, Microsoft Windows 2000, or Microsoft Windows XP, type mplay32.exe, and then click OK.
    Microsoft Media Player starts.
  3. On the File menu, click Open.
  4. Select the QuickTime movie that you want to verify. Click Open.
If the QuickTime movie is compatible, Microsoft Media Player opens the movie. If Microsoft Media Player opens the movie, but PowerPoint does not, there may be a problem with PowerPoint or with the MCI settings. If Microsoft Media Player does not open the movie, and then you receive an error message in Media Player, the movie is not compatible and cannot be played in PowerPoint. You may be able to make the movie compatible by using one of the methods described in the WORKAROUND section of this article."

Sound from speakers is not clear


Try head phones. Are they also not clear? IF they sound ok then its possible your speakers have been damage. Try another source, Music mp3, Cd, etc. Are all the sources the same. If Headphones sound good and speakers bad then troubleshoot the speakers. If both sound bad then troubleshoot the software and settings. Right click on the speaker icon in the task bar and adjust audio setting. Try playing audio with windows media player and then play the same file/song with another software, I-tunes, quicktime, VNC, etc. Does different software play the file correctly and another play it not clear. Then adjust the software settings in the player thats bad. .. .
