Check the system configuration for your audio controller and driver. if it is showing a yellow sign, them you have to re-install the controller or the driver. use the hardware dictation tool to dictate a new hardware. look for the audio controller and install it. confirm that your audio card is installed

Look for the Volume Mixer icon on the bottom right of your screen in the toolbar near the time. It may be hidden so click the "
If the Volume Mixer icon is not there, go to the Start Menu then click the icon for Control Panel. In the Control Panel window, select Sounds and Audio devices. Once in the settings for Sounds and Audio devices, there should be a checkbox for the option to "Place Volume Icon in the Taskbar." If no checkmark is there, click the box and then click on "OK". Now the Volume Mixer icon should appear in the taskbar.
Proceed by clicking this icon to launch the control panel for Volume Mixer. From here, you can change the volume settings for your computer and specific programs. Be sure to adjust the Master Volume setting.

Computer does not recognize it and the mic does not record into the computer... maybe my connections are wrong..pls help me


I have a 1222FX and here is how I have it hooked up. I have a cord that has an 1/8" stereo plug on one end and two mono RCA jacks on the other. The 1/8" end goes into my line in on my sound card. (not the microphone in ). The RCA jacks are hooked to two cords that I made up that have a RCA plug on one end and a XLR plug on the other. The XLR plugs are wired so that they are unbalanced. Pin one is ground and pins two and three are soldered to the positive. I used shielded cable and the shield is soldered to negative on the RCA jack but left unconnected on the XLR jack. This prevents hum. You may be able to purchase premade cables but I made my own. The XLR jacks are plugged into the left and right balanced or unbalanced Main output jacks of the mixer. On your computer click Start then Control Panel. Click Sounds and Audio Devices. Make sure that Place Volume in Taskbar is checked. Place the volume slider in about halfway position if there is one. Click Advanced and a control panel should pop up. It will say Play Control at the top. You will want your speaker volume about half way also. Make sure line in is NOT muted (checked ) and is also about half way up. Plug headphones into the mixer and get a good sound with the microphone you are using. If it is a microphone that requires phantom power make sure you turn the power to the mixing board on first, then the phantom power. Do this with the main volume control all the way off. When the mixer has warmed up for a minute or so you can bring the volume up to get a good sound. When you are done recording, make sure you slide the volume down again. Then turn the phantom power switch off and then the main power. This procedure protects your equipment. On the Play Control volume panel on your computer click on Options then Properties. You will see that it is checked for Playback. Check it for recording. Make sure that where it says Show the following volume controls, it has Playback volume and at least Line In checked. Now check the Recording Controls. Where it says Show the following volume controls make sure that at least Line In is checked. Click on O.K. and your Recording Control window will pop up. Make sure that Line In select has a check mark. Slide the volume up until you get a good sound through your computer speakers or your headphones if you have them plugged into the computer. If you accidentally close this window, Click on the speaker symbol in your taskbar at the bottom. You will have to switch between Play Control and Recording Control as before. You didn't mention what software you are using so I advise you to read your manuals carefully. The manual for the mixer has a page with wiring diagrams for cables. Here is a link to a site with lots of good info and an invaluable FREE book that you can download:http://www.recordingreview.com/ I hope this helps.

Is there a sound/volume lock key that may have been hit by mistake........audio and sound in my computer dont see any fault, but have almost no sound


I can help you with your 'almost no sound' computer problem.

The best thing to do when you are not sure what your pc is doing with its sound is to bring up your audio mixer. Do this by right clicking on the volume control icon by the clock on your task bar and selecting 'Open Volume Control', or go through the Control Panel if your taskbar has no volume icon visible.

When looking at your mixer, set Master Volume and Wave mixer bars to about 75%. Now return to whatever application you are using and check where its volume is set. Generally, everything should be set to 75% and then your external speaker volume should be set to a comfortable level.

I hope that helps.

My a205-s6808 toshiba laptop right speaker sounds bad. its like a hushing sound everytime the bass plays. it sounded great and then one day it happened. this is my bestfriends birthday present last year...


It may be as simple as the balance controls.

You can get to these by selectin the volume control mixer and double checing that they are set to the middle

NOTE these are not the main volume control ones but the smaller slder usually at the top or bottom of the mixer display depending on the sound mixer software used.

If it is windows 7 then double click the speaker icon and select mixer
now click on the speaker icon
select levels
at the right hand side are options for BALANCE and adjust as needed

Windows XP is as follows

ouble click on the volume control from the taskbar or sound options from control panel and the balance sliders are at the top above each volume control

Just need to know where to go to turn on my microphone


ON a computer?

In windows XP bring up the volume control. Usually a little speaker on the toolbar or go to control panel and click on the sounds icon.

Click on the audio tab and select recording device. From there you should have one or two options of input sources. Pick the one your mic is plugged into and set the volume control.

That should do it!

Hallo,after update windows xp my volume control will not open simply because is says there is not active mixer devices available. and then it talls me that i need to install the mixer device at the add...


If you are intrested in uninstalling the update the you have 2 options.
I aint sure about what the active mixer is. Must be a driver malfunction or something.

You can go to the laptop manufacturer website and download the driver for the sound card and check if it works otherwise

Go to Control Panel -> Add/ Remove programs -> In the top you wil have an option which says show updates. It will show all the updates and you can uninstall the latest windows XP update.

else

Go to Start->All Programs -> Accesories -> System tools -> System restore and restore to a date earlier than 1 week.

This should help

Volume&thinkpad button


Most IBM / Lenovo Thinkpads have hardware volume control with apropriate buttons above the keyboard (volume up, down and mute). Gnome in Ubuntu is configured in such a way, that the keypresses are trapped (this is correct), apropriate volume window is displayed (correct) and Gnome volume control is modified. Last step is actually wrong - the keys in Thinkpads control the volume hardware directly, so every keypress turns the volume up/down regardless of sound card settings (in Ubuntu case - this would be Alsa mixer). Current behaviour results in volume being changed twice - for example if I press the volume up button, I get volume reduction via Gnome sound mixer plus volume reduction via hardware control. Effectively this creates an exponential (and not linear as it should be) volume change. In short - it is very difficult to control volume, especially relatively quiet sounds, with volume keys only.
The "patch" solution is to decouple Gnome mixer from hardware buttons. Of course it could be done manually, by deleting apropriate key actions in System->Preferences->Keyboard shortcuts, but this also disables windows showing volume. A better thing (but more complex) would involve reading /proc/acpi/ibm/volume and displaying the volume window according to this value at each volume button keypress.
I tested this on T21, T42 and Thinkpad 600. I guess only some R series notebooks (R31 etc.) would not be affected, as these do not have hardware mixer.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Press hardware volume key (eg. volume up) on a Thinkpad
2. Observe the volume change - it is changed in hardware mixer (correct) and in Gnome volume control (incorrect)

I hope this helps...
