Hello, I reinstalled windows xp on my XV841 and now my external volume switch is not working. I am unable to mute, or turn the volume up or down. Any ideas? I am able to control the volume by clicking on the volume icon. All other keys seem to be working.

If the audio driver is working properly but the microphone isn't, ensure that:
1(a). The microphone is not muted.On Windows XP, go to start, run and type sndvol32 and press enter button to launch the Windows Sound Volume Management Panel.
Under the Microphone volume control, uncheck "mute" box.This should make your microphone functional again.
(b). The wrong microphone may be selected, esp. if your sound-card has an external port for microphones.To rectify the problem, use 1(a) as illustrated above, go to File>Advanced Controls and select Input Devices.Under the Microphone advanced settings, you'll see MIC1 Select and MIC2 Select. Switch the selection as appropriate until it works.
2. If the audio driver has it's own Sound management Panel, e.g that of Realtek, open it's sound control panel and disable all microphone effects that may be enabled.
3. Ensure that sound acceleration is maximum. Open the DirectX Diagnostics Engine by going to Start>Run> and type dxdiag and press enter button.When the window opens, click the Sound tab and slide the Sound acceleration bar to maximum.
I hope my solutions work.Have a good day.
1. Go to control panel>Device Manager 2. Select your audio device, check the properties 3. Check if its disabled. if not then upgrade or reinstall the driver. 4. If not working then check master volume control, if its mute by mistake. 5. If still not working, put external speakers and check if sound is comming. 6. still sound is coming then need to check & change your laptop speaker. 7. If still no sound, then need to check your motherboard.
There are some possible reasons why the sound is not working. It could be the volume control is in "MUTE", or the right sound card is not selected in the volume properties, or the speaker is defective.
Here's what you need to do:
1. Try to connect an external 2-channeled PC speaker. The computer should recognize the speaker and the sound should be transferred to the PC speaker. If the sound works on the PC external speaker, then you know that the volume control is NOT in mute and the sound card is selected. It means also that the built-in speakers could be defective.
2. If the same problem occur after connecting an external PC speaker, check the volume control, and make sure that the "MUTE" box is not checked. Then adjust the master volume.
* If everything's properly configured, but there's still no sound, check the volume properties under the Control Panel. Be sure that the correct sound card driver is selected. If that did not help, try to re-install the sound card driver.
* And the last option, contact the manufacturer and have them fix it for you.
Hi. Try plugging in an external speaker just to test the issue. It could be just the speaker of the laptop is having the problem. If you were able to hear the sound from the external speaker then the problem is the built in speaker of the computer. If there is no sound coming out to external speakers. Try to reinstall the driver of your soundcard.
1. click on the start button on the windows screen 2. program, then accessories, then Entertainment, then volume controller 3. select option,then properties 4. select mic check box to activate your mix option in the volume controller then ok 5. you can increase your mike volume and you can put it on mute option etc..
you might want to look into one of two options... either an external sound card, or a keyboard that has mltimedia buttons on it.
If you go with the former, the Audigy 2 NX external sound card might be want you are looking for. It's small and has volume controls right on the top. Granted, it is overkill if you just want simple volume control. However, if you don't have a high-end sound card already, it could be a nice addition to your desk..?
