Windows has a volume control built in, look at: control panel, sound and audio devices, volume control slider and check box for "place volume icon in task bar.

    Laptops have integrated soundcards, right off the motherboard. I have looked at a few and they are indeed not plug and play like a desktop computer. You may be able to remove the cover and see where the knob broke off and it may possibly be on a daughterboard (small board attached to the motherboard by a ribbon cable) that can be detached, but I doubt that you will be able to find replacement unless you go on Ebay and find someone parting a like model out.

I reformatted my IBM laptop, after everything set up there's no sound or i cant play music


once you have reformatted and reinstalled your operating sytem you have to set up the sound system again
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question exclamation mark? ! or a red X Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the
(((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it
if his does not fix the problem
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar for any further volume control settings you will need to right click on the volume icon system select adjust volume

click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps you

Volume control of yamaha ap-u70 defect


- Unplug Ap-U70 from power
- Remove side and top plates
- Remove front panel (3 connectors onboard)
- Lift up front pcb from the main plasic front

Then you see the poti with 4 clamps - bend the 4 clamps carefully aside and open the poti - you will see there's alot of oil/fat inside the poti that shouldn't be there - remove it all with some cleaning fluids

Assemble all together and see: Volume control is back

Within the years the oil/fat goes where it shouldn't ...

There is no sound from my lg laptop


May be the problem is with your computer settings or perhaps an outdated or faulty driver, and not with the speakers. Checking to see if any settings or drivers can fix the problem is a good idea before attempting to open the laptop or giving in and buying external speakers.Try following steps:

1: Test the audio in more than one program. If audio works in some programs but not others, the "mute" setting might be on in one or more
programs and should be unmuted.

2: Turn up the volume on the external volume control. It may be on the side or on the front of your laptop, or even on the keyboard (some models have a touch-sensitive strip at the top of the keyboard that you might not have realized controls the volume). Also look for any "mute" shortcut keys you might have accidentally pressed (the symbol looks like a speaker with a diagonal line through it) and try pressing it again to see if sound is restored.

3: Go to your volume controls ("Control Panel," "Hardware and Sound," "Audio Devices," "Sound" and "Adjust System Volume"), and under "Main Volume," make sure the slider is slid up and that the volume is not set to "mute.

4: Plug a pair of headphones into the headphone jack on the laptop and see if you can hear sound that way. If you hear noise in headphones or external speakers but not the built-in speakers, either your drivers or the speakers are the problem. Try uninstalling the drivers for your speakers in "Device Manager" and reinstalling them by visiting your laptop maker's website and downloading any updated drivers you need.

5: Open "Device Manager" by going to "Start," "Control Panel" "System" and "Maintenance." Open "Sound "Video, and Game Controllers," and see if a sound card is detected. If there is but there is a yellow question mark next to it, right click it, and go to "Properties," "General" and "Device Status" to see how to fix any problems. You may need to update or install new drivers from your computer maker's website. If there is no yellow question mark, uninstall and reinstall the drivers to see if this fixes the problem.

6: Reinstall your audio device drivers from your laptop brand's website if a sound card is not detected. It is possible some recent changes removed the drivers and made your speakers undetectable, so reinstalling the drivers should fix the problem.

SP3 screws up zero volume knob range?!


Fixing the wrong problem perhaps? May I suggest that installing SP3 to fix an unstable SP2 XP install is just wrong, masking the problem,
- not fixing it. Buy a new Hard Drive - install a clean Win XP and I bet all of your Edirol problems ( and others ) will vanish. Don't touch your old drive, But once you are happy with the build install it as a slave data drive.
