I have a sound related problem and do not know how to solve

I have a sound related problem and do not know how to adjust it. I can hear no more sound from my computer (except some parts) and when I looked at the list of my audio drivers, it only recognizes one (Sigma Tel High definition CODEC), the other codecs ("Audio Codecs", "Legacy Audio Codecs", Media Control Devices", "Legacy Video Capture Devices" and "Video Codecs") have an "Unknown" near "Location: ". This should be the problem, I mean could it be that my system cannot find them anymore? Game sound doesn't work, neither do Winamp and Windows Media Player work while Real Time Player plays some of my videos with sound also ... What could it be and how can I solve this?

Can you play audio files even if there's no sound with the Windows Media Player? if so some files of the sound driver is missing, you need to update the sound driver. Or if you can't play, then there's no sound driver only the codec is present without the device driver, the process is more or less the same..but before you follow these steps, put the Motherboard Driver CD on the CD Rom: Right Click on My Computer - Manage - Device Manager - Right click on the Yellow icon - Update Driver - No, Not this time - Next - Install from a list or Specific location - Next - Tick the "Include this Location in the Search - Browse - Go to the CD Rom Directory and search the Driver/Audio folder - and Select the Audio Driver folder - click OK- Next - Finish.. done..... Good luck.. Do let me know if this doesn't solve your problem, i am ready to help you..

Whistling noise

I don't think your whistling is related to your chain adjustment. What else might be whistling ... helmet ... ???Did you change anything else? Was your chain loud before and possibly covered the noise you are now hearing?

Little sound even on highest volume. Will firmware update solve this?

The firmware update will not solve this proble. You have to get into its "service menu", and change the status of sub-volume to a liitle bit. It is a skilled job, and should be done by any experienced service technician. There are so many adjustments, which cannot be done without proper knoledge about it. When adjusting these settings, the service technican should be fully aware of what he is doing, and going to do. These adjustments are not customer related, and cannot be accessed. OK.

How do I adjust each speakers volume?

You could start with the manual which is available at for free.

Speaker settings are primary to the quality and effects you hear. Surround modes depend on them.

The factory defaults assume you're in the center of a perfect circle of speakers (page 21). You need to adjust the delays of the Center and Surrounds to delay them so their sound arrives at the same time as the main speakers.

Page 27 deals specifically with relative speaker levels. You want to have the subjective sound level at your primary listening position be the same from all speakers with the test tone. I would recommend that you figure out which one(s) are the loudest at 0dB and adjust the rest to it(them).

If your hearing aid is dead and you have replaced the battery, and checked the sound tube or ear mold sound tube for ear wax, then you must tell me more about the problem.

For instance; are you an experienced HA user or not? Have you had the problem before? When did it go "Dead"? How often has this event occurred. Have you had the instrument long? How old is it? In the ear or behind the ear model? Or Other? If any of my comments have solved your problem please let me know.

In my opinion the problem is either acoustic or electronic. It can also be an acoustic problem in relation to your hearing loss and the condition of your ear.

We can continue do do this to solve your problem if you wish. We can continue with Q&A to solve. Or if you would like a local referral for service please give me a zip code. Thanks for asking FixYa Expertise.
