    Same problem here. Spent 1-2 hours with Geek Squad over the phone. They had access to our Gateway over the internet. They determined that we must have "fried our sound card." Not sure if this is the case. I'd love to know if there is a 5-minute fix such as was offered.

    The make and model of the laptop is: Gateway M305CRV
    The operating system is: Windows XP

No sound device on my satellite c650. cant play music

You should have on Board sound "Toshiba Bass Enhanced Sound System". You can check in Control Panel at the speaker icon or, if you have a speaker icon in your taskbar, lower right of your screen, right click on it. A window should come up and you should see "enable" or "disable" . If you see "enable" click on that, and exit. Right click on the icon again and left click on "open sound mixer" and adjust your volume.

How do i make th sound play with the videos

During recording you need to adjust your settings to max volume or half the max. You cant here sound if its lowered down. Sometimes the mic had been covered by the hands so proper capturing of sound may be distorted that's why you dont hear sound. But if you mean to see arrange your videos playing with background music you can do it using the windows movie maker.

My new Acer Aspire one D 250 laptop has a very low volume output . All the volume controls are up including wave output but with no success

Right click on the speaker icon in the task bar, lower right hand corner of the screen.
Select "Adjust Audio Properties."
In the popup box, go down to "Speaker Volume." Click "Advanced"
In the new pop-up, make sure that "Laptop speakers" is selected. Click all the OKs you need to in order to establish that setting and clear out of "Adjust audio properties."
Now you SHOULD have much better sound from your speakers.
For some reason, my D250 keeps defaulting to "Stereo headset" which produces much lower volume sounds when a headset is not inserted. So low that you can't watch and hear a video through the speakers and understand what is being said. Once you switch to "laptop speakers" you'll be able to hear stuff. It won't be high volume, these things just don't put out high volume, but it will be reasonably audible, if this was the problem.

T-Mobile Wing no sound........

Don't know if you've tried this yet, but adjust the volume slider on the left side of the phone. A screen will appear. One is for the phone volume and one is for the system volume..Sometimes one can be muted by accident. Also check your system settings under sound..Next, open Windows Media Player and make sure the volume is up. If that doesn't work I don't know what to tell you..I've had this phone for a while and that is one problem I have never seen.

Can't adjust the earphone sound

Use the side buttons to lower the master volume, when your in media mode listening to your music, you have to use the side buttons or flip it open and use the side buttons by squeezing your finger between the big screen and the keyboard, they diodnt think that part out to well.

The ear Piece volume control your talking about only pertains to when your actually on a call.

Stupid set-up i know.
