On my toshiba n305 notebook speaker sound is barely audible even at highest volume level. it is fine with earphones. tried everything. is it designed that way or something can be done? thanks

If you're on Vista/Windows 7, follow these instructions to enable Loudness Equalization. This significantly boosted the volume of my laptop speakers.
Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Sound
Double click on your default sound device (it will have a green check on its icon). Go to the Enhancements tab. Check Loudness Equalization, and hit apply. That should boost up any super-quiet noises.

Not sure what happened ,lost parts of my os for vista home premium 64 bit ,no sound, not even beepcodes,no text when atempting restore ,limited control in command promt, still have some stuff ,pictures...

Which do you have - Vista Home Premium or Vista Home Basic? The title of this question category and what you said you have doesn't match. I'll assume you had Home Premium 64 Bit. Yes you can upgrade to Windows 7, 64 Bit. Please be aware that there is the 64 Bit and the 32 Bit versions. Check with your OEM of the computer before you upgrade. In the upgrade process, Windows 7 will create a folder called "windows.old" once the install has completed. There you will find the data you had from the old operating system like pictures and documents. Before you do the upgrade, I recommend downloading and installing the Windows 7 Advisor to check on any software and hardware issues - the advisor will list those problems before you can upgrade so that you can make the corrections.

Volume icon

Hi, pullmyfin597. check your computer in the device manager if you have audio drivers. Or Try to check the control panel:

Click start > control panel > sound then under playback tab, tick
the box show icon on desktop. Then the volume control will show up on your desktop screen.

I had to reinstall Windows Vista. When I did so my computer lost a significant amount of volume output from both the speakers and the headphones. I have tried increasing the decibel output on the mp3 files...

The format shouldn't have made a difference with the system volume? Try to Reboot PC, and when windows appear, hit F8 key constantly until you here a beep. You are now in the Repair/safe mode/system restore. This is where you need to perform the system restore. This should work..

How do I restore volume icon using vista windows

go to control panel. click Sounds and multimedia. Check the little icon that looks like a little speaker. If it's not there, Click on Audio on the same window. it is supposed to say what sound media you have. If there is nothing , you will have to reinstall the sound software using the Cd ROM. Or other CD media.

Yesterday aree home computer speakers just stoped working randomly and can you please help us?

try the following:

1. check the obvious first... is everything plugged in properly?? is the volume up on the speakers?? correct and test... if it did not work.. move to step 2.
2. on the system tray (where the clock is) click once on the speaker icon and check the speaker is nt muted and the volume is high enough for you to hear something... correct and check.. if it did not work.. move to step 3.
3. on the system tray again, right click the speaker icon and open volume control... check master volume and other volumes are up and not muted. correct and check ..if it did not work move to step 4
4. open device manager (start>run>type devmgmt.msc and press enter). check under sound and look for any ! signs next to a device... if you find any !... you have a issue with the driver on that sound device... (the driver makes your devices work with your computer and operating system).. if you do find a ! next to a device in device manager you have possible the following problems/options
a. reinstall the driver: right click on the item and select uninstall, wait for the uninstall to be completed then go to actios and select scan for hardware changes... if done properly your device will try to reinstall the driver by itself... check no ! are showing and test. if it doesnt work. try b.
b. do a windows update (manual update) and look for update drivers for your sound device... check, test and if it doesnt work try c.
c. check the hardware manufacturer of your sound device and look for an updated driver... download and update driver, by first uninstalling the device as explained in step a and then execute the update setup program or manually update the driver using the driver file your may have download from the website, check for no ! in device manager and test..


if you suspect there was a recent change on the system as the cause for your issue the easiest and shotgun approach is system restore: you can possibly try to do a system restore to go back to the configuration you had on your system at a previous date. to do this follow the steps:

The sony VAIO Pcv-j200 only runs with Windows 2000, windows Me and windows xp. The current operating system Vista on your computer right now will work but some of the features of it may not. The link below shows all the drivers for your unit for diffent operating systems (not vista). What you can try to do is to download the audio driver for windows xp
