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? Jon : )
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.
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.
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.
Click start menu and go to control panel. Look for sounds and audio devices. Adjust the volume to your desired percentage volume. Or if you can see speaker icon on task bar double click it and you can access wizard. Adjust volumes of different components...
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
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
