    Compaq Presario laptop and the volume is half what it used to be. I can't turn it up at all!

  • Anonymous Apr 17, 2009

    I cannot adjust my volume. There was a volume thing I'd use to adjust to volume and it somehow vanished.

Ok it could be a few things, I am assuming that you are using XP and its a laptop, so lets try these:

  1. Can you turn up the volume by using Control Panel -- Sounds and Audio Devices --- Device Volume slider?
  2. On some Compaqs, the controls for audio are activated by holding down the FUNCTION key (usually blue letters on key on the left side of keyboard) and then pressing the audio up or audio down key. These keys are usally towards the top of the keyboard. These keys can do multiple things depending if the blue function key is press down first. They can control things like switching between internal and external displays, turning up/down the brightness on your laptop display and controling your audio levels too.
  3. Do you hear any sounds at all, if not, does Device Manager list your sound device?
  4. If this is a desktop PC, number 2 does not apply.
ok try those and let me know, Thx! =)

    1. Is this a laptop or a desktop?

    2. When did it stop working?

    3. Does the sound device show up in Device Manager?

    4. Is it enabled in Device Manager? (no red X or yellow exclaimation point.)

    I would try to uninstall, then reinstall sound card drivers and software again. You can download the correct one from HP's web site by entering in your service number (a sticker on the system somewhere) or your model number.

    Let me know and thanks! =)

If your Compaq Vista speaker volume is too low, download and install the HD sound driver for your computer (this may not be necessary). In Control Panel (classic view) click Sounds. Click the speaker icon in the box. Click Properties at the bottom right of the box. In the Speakers Properties box click Advanced. Scroll down to 24 bit, 48000 Hz (Studio Quality) or possibly others will work also, so you might play around with them. In my machine this increased speaker volume from the CD quality setting at the top of the list. Good luck.

Installed lynex on my compaq presario sr2010nx and i cant get the sound to work

Make sure the audio drivers are in the device manager. Make sure the volume is turned up and not muted. Look at the Audio/Sound properties in the Control Panel and make sure they are not muted and the volume is up. Make sure you have the speakers plugged into the light green port on the computer and that the speakers are on and the volume is turned up.
