Hello, my name is Lanie and I'm from the Philippines. I'm having a problem with the sound quality of my computer. It has 3D Audio Configuration which i tried to alter and in this case I haven't had the opportunity to resort the old settings of it. I browsed through the net and i saw this site. I'm hoping for a favorable action from your end. Nevertheless, any help extended from any of you wonderful people would be highly appreciated :) thank you and God bless :)
Have you looked for the DEFAULT settings of your 3D sound? Try this first. Reinstalling the Sound Deiver might help. Try to provide more information each time. Most people provide inadequate information on problems and never get their questions answered.

If your sound is dead, This could mean that you've plugged it into the wrong socket.
This could be wrong. But try this.
Start - Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager - Right Click on the Sound/Audio (it should have a yellow sign next to it) Then go Find Manually and go down the List, Press Sound & Hardware, What ever brand your computer is, there should be sound that is the brand name as the same computer brand you have. Once that's found, Click it. It should then install your hardware sound.
If this problem still doesn't work, You can simply go on ebay and buy a $5 Sound card. These do work, I am using one now, and let me tell you, it's absolutely great! So cheap great quality, and fast shipment. I hope you get your sound to work :)

go to start then control panel put it on classic view find device manager on device manager find sound video game controller click on it then find the sound drivers delete them turn computer off restart the computer it should find the sound card and automatically put the drivers back on.
Theres no such thing as an "unsafe sound card". You can spend anywhere from $20 all the way up to $300 depending on exactly what you are looking for
Installing a sound card into your computer is easy and takes around 10 minutes. You basically have to unplug your computer , unscrew the side panel , slide off the side panel and then you will see some slots on the mainboard , some of which should be empty. Its then a simple matter of unscrewing the backplate so the outputs on the card can be accessed from the back of your machine and pushing the card firmly into the slot. It can only go one way so theres not much room for failure!
Personally though , ive never really had the need for a sound card. All recent computers have sound built into the motherboard and if all you are doing is listening to music and playing a few games then its generally hard to tell the difference between onboard audio and a sound card. Id only recommend a sound card if you are a serious audio fanatic who does something like sound engineering as a career and is very picky about the level of sound that you get.
Sound quality is also determined by speakers. Bad quality speakers and top notch sound cards will still give bad sound quality!

The sound quality built in to most mother boards is not the best quality. It is a compromise. The best solution is to install a high quality sound card in an available slot.
For video quality, it is the same issue when it comes to high quality video.
Before installing the new sound card, uninstall the existing sound drivers and sound software for the built in sound as necessary. You may have to go in to the BIOS set-up and dissable the mother board's built in sound. It is best to consult the instructions for *********** board to know the details for the particular mother board. You should contact the dealer for your computer to have proper details.
Turn off the computer, and disconnect the AC cord. Open the case, and install the new sound card according to the instructions that come with it.
When the computer re-starts, it should tell you that it found new hardware. Go through the installation procedure. There will be drivers and some software and drivers that must be installed.
If you are not used to this type of procedure, it would be best for you to take the computer to a computer service place and have them do the installation for you.
Yes.speakers like all the other computers parts need to be maintained very well.dust can deteriorate the sound quality.Regular servicing might help out to get the original quality.Else you can do it on your own by cleaning with a normal hand brush.Hope this helps you out.Please do rate If this could solve your problem.
on Windows XP, you will need to convert those files into 16bit cd audio quality. You can do this thru Sound Recorder on the computer. Just make that you change the file name before converting. Open up sound recorder, open up file, save as, convert, then change quality to cd quality then ok. After it is saved in 16 bit format, open Windows Media Player and then burn.
I also have a Samsung 46 inch HDTV and have the same problem. I reported it to Samsung. They sent out a repair man who replaced the entire audio system... I did not help at all. Sound quality still very bad. Hard to understand audio voice on most movies. Is there a solution short of installing an additional home theatre system?
