Question about Toshiba Tecra A3 Notebook

1 Answer

Very low speaker volume with all controls maxed

Hi, I have a low volume problem with my Tecra A3, running Win XP. All volume controls I know of (tool bar AND control panel) are on Max. The on-board speakers produce about 20% of the volume I would expect to be normal. The Audio driver is Realtec AC97, and the speaker types selected in the properties are Notebook Stereo speakers. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thank you, FRank

Problem solved... It's embarrassing to report actually. The A3 has a manual volume control knob which sits quite inconspicuous at the front RH side of the case. Just never noticed it...

Sound output is low nowadays even at full volume whereas before it was ok. I didn't change anything with my computer nor did I change my speakers.


Two possible causes.1) Vol Settings changed in windows2) Bad hardware
1) Check your system's sound settings:

For Xp
  • Goto Control Panel
  • Double Click Sound and Audio devices / Sound, Speech, and Audio Devices
  • In device Volume Click Advance
  • Master Volume Control Window will open
  • Increase all the volumes to max, also make sure that Mute us UNCHECKED.

OR
  • From the bottom right corner of your screen in system tray, double click a small speaker icon and open Master Volume Control.

For Vista and Windows 7
  • From system tray (its at bottom right corner of your screen) double click on small speaker icon, it will open Volume mixer
  • Increase the volume to max.

2) If this does not work, then test your speakers by connecting it to some other system and vice versa.
If you get desired sound volume when you connect some other speakers to your system, then you have to change your speakers. And if your speakers are working fine on other system then you may have to purchase a new sound card.

Dell Latitude D800-Win XP- My Dvd/rw wont write


Because you lost two devices, the DVD and the wireless mini card, I believe your problem is a drivers issue.
You should make sure you do not have any Malware that is removing these drivers.
If you have access to the Internet download and install Malwarebytes. It has a quick scan that will ID any infections.
Then get the newest drivers for those two devices from Dell's support site.
Before you install the drivers, remove those devices in Control Panel.

Sound problem


It is possible that there maybe a speaker fault, ut it is equally possiblt that there is a motherboard fault. It would need to be checked by a qualified engineer.

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.
