Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Sound Hi, Laptop is Packard Bell EasyNote SW51-201. The sound used to be fine, but now is much lower than it used to be. It's almost inaudible through the speakers and lower than it used to be through headphones. OS is Windows XP. Sound card is Realtek, though I can't identify which one. I bought the laptop new about 18 months ago, with everything pre-loaded - no disks supplied. I have re-installed everything to factory settings via "smart restore," but no difference. Is there a way to reset or reinstall the sound drivers? In the near future, I'd also like to upgrade the sound card to get much better quality sound anyway. Any suggestions as to cards, and is this a simple DIY job, or should I get it done? Thanks for your help. Jay.

Hi If u have restored to factory settings and the sound remains the same then it should be the sound card chip in your motherboard. Upgrading your sound chip in your notebook is not easy better u get the sound chip replaced if u can get a technician to find the part.

Packard-Bell.DriverUtilities.com go to device manager and uninstall the current driver. prompt will then come up stating new hardware found and will ask you to chose a location to install from. go to P-Bell site and upload driver once in the download file you can open the driver file. I also suggest you go to Microsoft Security Essentials and run a quick scan of your computer( this will update virus definitions and remedy many latent computer issues.
