    pls try this if it helps switch off the notebook take out the battery
    put it aside for like 5 minutes also take out the power adapter or
    supply and after this press the power button without the battery and no
    power cord this will release the any charge in the circuits then re
    assemble everything see if it works , i hope ,otherwise

    which software u are using to play sound check the sound volume control see if it is muted and if it doesnt help, driver update also not helping here, u are not getting sound from headphones as well so speakers are also ok then , its a typical sound card hardware problem , there is nothing much u can fix in this bcoz it is not a software issue and sound card is embedded on the board so u can not re seat it either , my friend u have to take it to service centre see what they can do about it it needs hardware replacement as it is notebook there is not much u can do at home

    pls do rate me if u
    think i fixed ur problem

Your music-player software and your movie-player software have independent sound-level controls; just increase the sound-level when watching the movie.

Hi,

Turn the laptop off and wait about 2 minutes (DO NOT RESTART)

Power up the computer again and see if that has fixed the problem.

If it hasn't then please post back.




Good luck.

Volume low when watching dvd


Not much you can do about this. The movie industry sets movies to low volume when recording for better sound. They expect you to have the equipment to boost the sound. This cuts down on their outside noise. Only solution for this is to install external speakers as I have done for my movie or TV playing (I installed a TV adapter so I could hook up a projector and display the BIG game outside) but as you say, we couldn't hear it until I hooked up external speakers.
