Volume won't work

I went to watch a movie and the volume won't work. I have tried adjusting as much as I can and went in to control panel and it isn't on mute either. Is my sound car bad? How would I know exactly? There is no sound what so ever. I check email, when I start it up, nothing.

No volume when playing movies


The Problem> Sound: Placing the mouse pointer over the ICON to the lower right of your screen should indicate the percentage of Volume your speakers are adjusted for. Right click and you get the Open Volume Mixer section. The playback devices can be your computer speakers or a separate headset with microphone. Here you can make adjustments accordingly. At the bottom are Volume Control Options that allow you to increase or decrease the audio reception. Generally, when you insert an external Headphone with Microphone into the sound port in; an automatic disconnect may occur preventing computer speakers from working. This is common with Laptops. If you lack sound, you may need to update the sound drivers, change cables, and/or check to see if the speakers work on another device.

Look for a secondary audio control panel and make sure all the volume settings are set to 100% there as well. Also, some laptops have volume settings function (FN) keys. Have you tried elevating the volume there as well?

Open up the control panel in the start menu, then click on "hardware and sound". From there click on "adjust power and volume". the solution to your problem should be there. If not adjust power and volume then try manage audio devices.

MAJIC JACK VOLUME IS TOO LOW.


Look into the Majic Jack software for volume controls. You could try increasing the volume controls that are in Windows.

Click Start/Control Panel or Start/Settings/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound. Open it and increase the volume.

You can also get to the Audio or Sound by clicking the megaphone at the bottom right near the time and adjust the volume.

Volume buttons on my toshiba laptop is not working


There are other ways to adjust the volume.

Right click on the megaphone located at the bottom right near the time. You can adjust the volume there.

Look on your keyboard and normally you can Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit one of the 3 keys with the megaphone that adjusts the volume (1 key increases the volume, 1 key decreases the volume and 1 key mutes the volume).

You can adjust the volume in the Control Panel's audio or sound properties. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Sound or Audio.

Volume balance not working


There are different ways to adjust the volume. Maybe you have the volume on mute. There are keys that control the volume on some laptops. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit one of the 3 keys (keys with a megaphone on it) that control the volume.

Some models might have buttons you can press that control the volume.

You can always click on the megaphone at the bottom right near the time and adjust the volume properties.

You can click Start/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound and adjust the volume.

I cant hear any sound when i watch online movie or music videos please help


1) Apparently its caused by the deletion of a single registry entry called wavemapper which some people blame on Adobe's flash player.

Here is the fix:-

Start -> Run and enter 'regedit' or 'regedit.exe' (obviously without the quotes) - This will bring up the registry editor

Follow the left path to:
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mic... NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32

On the right pane, right click and click on New, select String value, enter 'wavemapper', press ENTER

Then right-click on 'wavemapper', select modify, and type 'msacm32.drv' into the Value Data field.

Close the registry editor.

This should all work now without a reboot so you can get back to watch youtube clips all day.

2) Recall that in CONTROL PANEL under SOUNDS AND AUDIO DEVICES and the VOLUME tab, I said it was greyed out. Even though I had all drivers installed, it said "NO AUDIO DEVICE" and the DEVICE VOLUME could not be accessed.

Well, the problem was under the AUDIO tab and the SOUND PLAYBACK section. DEFAULT DEVICE was set to "Modem #0 Line Playback".

I clicked on the arrow on the right - for the drop down menu - and saw a second choice..."Vinyl AC'97 Audio (WAVE)".

I chose it, clicked on "APPLY", went back to the VOLUME tab, where it now read "Vinyl AC'97 Audio (WAVE)" and the volume was accessible.

clicked on "OK" - went to youtube.com and it played perfectly

L have a toshiba satellite m55-s331. I have very low volume. Tried the obvious inc downloading new drivers, updating ect. Nothing works! I have realtekAC97 audio driver. Please help! Keep it simple as I am...


You might be able to adjust the volume further from the control panel.

In windows xp click "start" and then select "control panel" Next click sounds, speach, & audio devices next to a speaker icon. Then click the "sounds and audio devices"

you should be able to adjust the volume there as well as a volume control on the front or side of your laptop.

good luck
