My levono C460 system sound is off so no sound what can i do?


Hi
3 possible solutions:-
• Adjust the Windows volume control - select the speaker icon from the Settings Charm or click the arrow on taskbar to show the hidden icons in Windows desktop mode, then click the speaker icon. Ensure that the volume is turned up and the sound is not muted. Adjust the volume, bass, or treble controls to eliminate distortion.
• Reinstall the audio driver.
• Disconnect any headphones from the headphone connector - sound from the speakers is automatically disabled when headphones are connected to the computer's side-panel headphone connector.

I also give a link below to a page from which you can download the full manual for future reference.

Bass treble adjustments


I have the Toshiba Satellite C55-A5300.

I'm not sure about before the update, but after the windows 8.1 update my audio was pretty bad and had no bass at all.

In Control Panel ---> Hardware and Sound I found "Realtek HD Audio Manager" which has a tab named "DTS"

Once I hit the Launch buton I was able to apply settings for headphones and external speakers including bass boost.

My audio is now much better.

Hope this helps.

Volume is really low on my HP ProBook 4440s. how can I fix it?


Are you shure all volume controls are set on max? Bass / treble or some kind of equalizer or enhancer turned on? If it's still too low, use a Boss Porta Pro headset, buy external speakers or connect to a stereo system.

How do i find out what sound card my p.c is using? i'm on windows vista, and need to change the bass and treble level ?


Most laptop sound card do not have a setting for bass and treble.
You can use external powered speakers that have bass and treble settings and connect these speakers to the headphone socket on your laptop.

Poor sound quality


Many laptops have very small tinny sounding speakers built into them. If you wish to get better sound you can hook it up to a set of external speakers through the headphone port (or line out if it has it). You may also be able to get a set of USB powered external laptop speakers for your laptop.

You can check that there isn't dirt covering or stuck in the speaker grill, and that you don't have the volume too loud that it's overpowering the speakers.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa!

Fine tune audio on Dell Inspiron 5160


The only way you are going to get any enhanced audio out of a 5160 is with an external USB audio device.

Low volume

Loudness Equalization : on

Equalizer: Choose one (Jazz seems to be loudest setting but sounds of hallway effect so I use powerful for clarity.)

This has more than doubled the level of volume on my acer 5570.
