Qosmio G40. DVD playback - volume much too low with Vista

Hi there,

I have a brand new Qosmio G40 10S Laptop running Vista Premium. My problem (and that of many other users) is that when playing a DVD (using WMP or Toshibas HD Player), the maximium volume available is well short of that capable of the machine when playing a CD or MP3 for example.

I cannot find anyway or 'ramping-up' the volume as the 'Advanced' tabs on WMP Properties is unavailable and there don't seem to be any adjustable Properties on the Realtek sound card or Speaker side of things.

In XP, you could get in and tweak the settings - doesn't appear to be so with Vista!

Am I missing something and any help would be massively appreciated.

Many thanks.

JHL

Control Panel -> Sound -> Speakers. CLick the levels tab and adjust the playback control i had to adjust mine from 50 to 100. now sounds like it did in XP

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 have oem vista home premium and need to format


most computer makers put the restore on a partition of the hard drive that is accessed using an F-key on bootup. You should see f-key options displayed (very quickly) on booting up and one will be "restore". For example, on an HP machine, it'll be F11 you hit on boot up to go into the restore partiton.

Actually, there are two good reasons not to swap that drive into the new laptop,

First, you never want to boot from or install software to a drive you're trying to recover as everything you do to/with the drive runs the risk of causing further damage.

Second even if it weren't for the damage, you simply aren't likely to have the right drivers unless both laptops are the exact same model.

My suggestion is just get the new laptop you want, then attach the damaged drive with the enclosure to the new laptop then run your recovery software. If that doesn't work, you will likely need the help of a Pro.

Try Armor-IT Data Recovery, they are listed in the FixYa database and service clients from all over North and South America.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris
