Volume Problem on Apple Laptop

When I push the volume buttons, I get an image with a slash over it, basically implying that I can't do anything with the volume.  When I go into System Preferences and click sound, I'm not able to click anything for output volume.  Thank you for your time.

Sounds like the volume is muted. Right click on the speaker icon and it should allow you to un-mute it. If that does not work, you need to download or reinstall your sound drivers. If you do not have the cd you can get the sound drivers from the apple website.

I hope this helps. Please rate.

I am having problems adjusting volume


What type of laptop HP , ASUS , COMPAQ , ACER ?..........
Up the Volume on My HP Laptop
Open the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon.
Locate and open the icon that deals with sound.
Depending on your version of Windows, it will say either "Sounds and Audio Devices" or "Adjust System Volume."
Adjust the volume under the "Speakers" icon.
To do this, click on the slider bar and move it up on the slider.
If you need to decrease the volume, simply move the slider bar down.
Click on "OK" when finished and close the "Control Panel" window.
Click on the speaker icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen for a faster volume adjustment. Simply move the slider bar up to increase the volume and move it back down to decrease the volume.

Volume on an Acer Laptop
Acer laptops are typically sold with pre-installed Windows operating systems that offer sound-adjustment features for increasing the volume on the laptop's built-in stereo speakers.
These same functions can also be used in tandem with external speakers or headphones to increase the volume, as well as mute all sound on the laptop.
If the computer should output an unusually low volume, fixing the problem may be no more involved than sliding a control switch with the computer mouse. Click once on the speaker icon in the taskbar on the lower-right corner to open a rectangular window with a slide control.
Click and hold the left mouse button on the slide control to drag it upward, increasing the volume to the laptop's maximum setting.
Click the "Mixer" button below the slider control to open another window with volume controls for "Speakers" and "Applications," adjusting each slide control upward to increase the volume.
Be sure the speaker icon below each control is not accidentally muted.
Click once on each speaker icon to remove the red circle with a slash through it, which will restore audio.
Click the Microsoft flag or "Start" button in the lower-left corner if the shortcut speaker icon is missing from the taskbar.
Click "Control Panel" to select "Adjust Sounds" from the Hardware and Sounds category.

Ipod touch volume control stuck


Just press and hold the lock button down until there's a slider that says "slide to turn off" (or similar). this will force your ipod to reboot. Once it shuts down, push and hold the lock button again until you see the apple logo. that should fix it.

If you are getting a big 'NO' symbol when using the volume keys to adjust it, it means your speakers are not being recognized as a valid output source.

Try resetting your SMC:

If that doesn't work, it will likely need repair. Call 1-800-MY-APPLE if issue persists after resetting the SMC.

Volume controls problem


There are options in System Preferences :: Sound for a volume slider in the menu bar and in Displays for the brightness slider. This can get you by but your keys seem to be remapped--check Keyboard & Mouse that your shortcuts are not changed and you are not using them for F1.... (Restore should have fixed that.) -Ken

Volume problems on my Apple MacBook


Hi, Sorry you are having problems,
If I understand you correctly, you have your headphones plugged into the MacBook and are expecting sound to come out of your speekers ?
Well, if that is the case, you must know that the mac will automatically cut the signal to the speekers as soon as headphones are connected.
Now if you are saying that you connected the headphones to test it and found that whe you changed the volume, you could hear the change on the headphones, but when you unplug your head phones, you do not notice any sound difference on the speakers.
SO let's say that is the problem. First thing to always do, of course, is a full shut down and a clean start up with no headphones installed. Once you have booted up, try it again....
If it still does not work, go into your sound preferece pane in the system preferences and change some of the settings, like muting the sound and clicking the button that allows for showing volume in menu bar, unclick options go into the tabs go clicking and unclicking things... then quit and then go back into the sound preferences and set it the way you want, sometimes shaking it up a bit gets it back on track...
Good luck.
