Sometimes when you delete a software that relies on your sound, it will accidently erase the sound driver. Look on the front of your computer and write down the model number of your computer. Example Dell 2400. Go to manufacturers website and click on support and drivers. Find your brand and redownload/install audio driver. Reboot and your all done!

How do I enhance my Asus PadFone X mini speaker loudness?


Look for a program called Sound Booster or one called DFX. DFX is my favorite because it not only boosts the volume, but lets you add other effects to enhance you sound as well. There is a free version. but to get all the effects you have to upgrade to the paid. If audio is important to you, check it out.

I can delete from add/remove prgms ok , if I delete 2008 to 2011 will it affect my computer old files


It really depends on the program you want to remove. If it is something you don't use anymore, then it will be just fine to remove. Be careful not to remove your anti-virus or software that contains drivers ie. display driver software

I have a L46FHD37 lcd tv how can i reset it


The Sound menu lets you adjust audio output. To access the Sound menu, press MENU on the remote, and then select Sound from the Main Menu. The following audio items can be adjusted:
Equalizer The five-band graphic equalizer lets you adjust the audio frequency settings. You can select one of the five-band Equalizer Presets or create your own personal preset.
Sound Preset Allows you to choose a specific Sound Preset. Press the right arrow to cycle through the options: Standard, Movie, Voice, Music and Personal.
Frequency Range Displays the different graphic equalizer bands set for each Sound Preset option. Choose a band and make adjustments. When you make adjustments, the Sound Preset option automatically changes to Personal. Press the left or right arrow button to select the frequency (100Hz, 300Hz, 1KHz, 3KHz, 10KHz) you want to adjust. Then use the up or down arrow button to adjust the level. When you're done adjusting the levels, press the MENU button to exit.
To view the frequency range of another Sound Preset option, press the right or left arrow until no band is selected and Frequency Range is highlighted. Then press the up arrow to highlight Sound Preset.
Sound Type Controls the way the sound comes through your speakers. The options available vary according to the input selected.
Mono (available for regular TV viewing only) Plays the sound in mono only. Use this setting when receiving broadcasts with weak stereo signals.
Stereo Splits the incoming stereo audio signal into left and right channels. Most TV programs and recorded materials have stereo audio. The word Stereo appears in the channel banner when you tune to a program that is broadcast in stereo.
Sound Mode Provides special processing through your speakers (depending on the setting you chose as your Sound Type). The available sound modes are:
Off Does not give any special sound processing.
SRS WOW Gives a surround effect with more bass. (available for models L42FHD37, L46FHD37, and L46FHD35) SRS TurSurround XT (available for models L42FHD38, L46FHD38, L52FHD38, and
L40FHD380) Dynamic Bass Improves bass output. Displays a choice list of available settings you can adjust: Off and On.
Balance Press the right or left arrow buttons to adjust how much audio is sent to the left and right speakers.
Auto Volume Level Reduces the annoying blasts in volume during commercial breaks, and also amplifies softer sounds in program material. Eliminates the need to constantly adjust the volume.
Internal Speakers Turn on or off the internal speakers. If you have a device connected to the AUDIO OUTPUT jacks on the back of the TV and you want to control the sound by the device instead, uncheck the box.
If you would like for me to send you the user manual, please send me an email to LBrown18062@hotmail.com. Put "RCA L46" as the subject and I will send it to you.

You should also check your DVD playback software and make sure that you have it set for desktop/laptop speakers and NOT for something like 5.1 or 7.1 surround etc.

Failure of realtek audio driver installation


I had the same problem while installing a GeForce 7050M-M motherboard w/AMD quad core processor. I kept getting the message "install Realtek HD Audio driver failure!!" message. After many hours of futility, and reading possible solutions on the internet, I got it working this way: First, go into your cmos setup and disable your onboard audio. Then after you boot up, go into 'control panel' and then 'add/remove programs' and remove any program associated with high definition audio. The Realtek programs that I had tried to install were in mine, so I deleted them. Then I clicked on 'start' and then 'search', and put this in the search window: 'hdaud' for high definition audio. Several files came up, and I deleted them, which put them all in the recycling bin. I didn't empty the bin, in case I screwed up something and had to restore the files later. I then rebooted, and being probably overcautious, let the computer come up and then went back into 'add/delete programs' to make sure there were no HD audio programs in there, and then double checked for any files by going back into 'search' and searching for 'hdaud' files like before. A file somehow had appeared there associated with Realtek, so I deleted it. Then I rebooted, and at reboot went into cmos setup and enabled my onboard audio. When the computer came up, the 'found new hardware' message popped up. When you see this DO NOT let the computer look for the driver. Hit 'cancel', and load your Realtek audio drivers from your setup disc or from whatever location you have them in. You may see the additional message about the driver not loading and your sound not working right, but ignore it, it's because you clicked on 'cancel'. Just let it finish it's install from your setup disc. When mine finished successfully for the first time now, and it prompted me to reboot because of the new drivers just installed, I actually got the 'shutdown' sound out my speakers-the first peep I heard out of them since I started this adventure early yesterday. When the computer came up, lo and behold I had sound. I was about ready to give up and go out and buy a sound card, but stubborness prevailed. So in short review:

1. Disable your onboard audio in CMOS
2. Go into 'add/remove programs' and delete any and all HD audio programs
3. Go into 'search' and type in 'hdaud' and delete those files that come up.
4. Reboot and double check 2 and 3 above.
5. Reboot and go into CMOS and enable your onboard audio.
6. Load your audio drivers from your setup disc-DO NOT LET THE COMPUTER LOOK FOR A DRIVER THRU THE 'FOUND NEW HARDWARE' PROMPT-PRESS CANCEL.
7. Reboot and hopefully, enjoy the sound.
