I can help you with your 'almost no sound' computer problem.

The best thing to do when you are not sure what your pc is doing with its sound is to bring up your audio mixer. Do this by right clicking on the volume control icon by the clock on your task bar and selecting 'Open Volume Control', or go through the Control Panel if your taskbar has no volume icon visible.

When looking at your mixer, set Master Volume and Wave mixer bars to about 75%. Now return to whatever application you are using and check where its volume is set. Generally, everything should be set to 75% and then your external speaker volume should be set to a comfortable level.

I hope that helps.

Can't program comcast remote to yamaha yas-101


The only thing i was able to do was to use this link and make the remote learn the functions by following the instructions on the Yamaha web site for the sound bar to AUX. YAS 101
http://faq.yamaha.com/us/en/article/audio-visual/digital-sound-projector/yas-101/7598/6609/

I then used the instructions below to volume lock the aux so that i did not have to switch back and forth from cable to aux to adjust volume and change channels
Setting Global Volume Lock
Global Volume Lock will force the volume and mute keys to be controlled by one device.
  1. Press and hold the "Setup" key until a device key blinks twice.
  2. Type in the code 993. A device key should blink twice.
  3. Press and release the device key for the device you want the volume locked to.
  4. You will get two blinks if the lock is successful.

Volume buttons on my toshiba laptop is not working


There are other ways to adjust the volume.

Right click on the megaphone located at the bottom right near the time. You can adjust the volume there.

Look on your keyboard and normally you can Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit one of the 3 keys with the megaphone that adjusts the volume (1 key increases the volume, 1 key decreases the volume and 1 key mutes the volume).

You can adjust the volume in the Control Panel's audio or sound properties. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Sound or Audio.

Volume settings not appering on screen


There are other ways to change the volume. You can probably change it by Pressing and Holding the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the appropriate volume key. The volume keys will have a little megaphone on them. There will be three of them, one to increase, decrease or mute the volume.

You can also change the volume by clicking Start/Programs/Accessories/Entertainment/Volume Control.

Also you can change the volume in the Control Panel by going to the Audio or Sound. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound.

My acer netbook is stuck on mute


if the little x over the volume bar is still stuck after moving it up you may have to hit the function key (fn) on your laptop and hit one of the F1-F12 KEYS that look like a mute or volume symbol also there should be a mute button on the laptop itself. if all that fails. go to (xp) right click on my computer -device manager-and see if you have a red or yellow x over your sound sound devices (win vista or 7) go to computer, sys prop on the top then device manager. if you see any of htose yellow or red warnings you will need to re-download the audio drivers from acer website Let me know if this helped.

Cant turn up volume my compaq presario laptop


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! =)
