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.
Hello, maybe the volume control for mic (in Windows) is turned down or set to 'mute' I only know where to find it in XP, which is Start > Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control and you want to view the 'advanced' controls. Hope you can relate this to your Windows 7 system.
Hello, advance apologies if this is too obvious, but assuming you're running Windows XP, then try: Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control and see if it's muted or turned down Regards, Nicam49
If only some of the movies you're playing do not get sound it's likely you have a codec issue.
***Check volume settings
Often no sound in the Microsoft Windows Media Player is corrected by adjusting the volume controls at the bottom of the window. Moving the slider from the left to the right will turn up the volume, if all the way to the left the volume is turned all the way down.
***Make sure not muted
In addition to the volume slider, make sure the sound icon is not pressed in. This button is the mute button and will mute the sound.

If you continue to experience issues, you may want to consider reinstalling and/or updating the Windows Media player on your computer. You can find the latest Windows Media player on your computer by clicking "here".
In your Volume Control settings there is a MIC MUTE that may have been turned on. Just clear the checkmark out and that will turn it off. Also in Control Panel / Sounds And Audio Devices / Audio tab, in the Sound Recording section, choose the Volume button. A small window will open titled Microphone. Make sure that this is not muted, and that the Volume control is not turned all of the way down.
Do you have the speaker icon on the lower right? If so, check to see if
sound is "muted" (turned off) . If the sound is turned-on it will have
two sound waves on the right of the icon. If muted it will have a
circle with a slash added to the icon. If muted click on the icon then
click the speaker in the new window. Check the sound by changing the
volume - it will beep when you change the volume.
If the above did not fix the problem you need to download and reinstall the sound card driver.
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..?
First check that your sound isn't muted or turned down way low in windows. Do this by clicking on the start button, then clicking RUN and typing 'mmsys.cpl' without the quotes to bring up your sound & audio properties. If there is a check next to mute click the check to remove it. Next click on the Audio tab along the top. Now under sound playback click the volume button to bring up the Volume control. Again make sure nothing is muted. Now the left slider is your main volume control so if thats really low pull the slider up a bit. I would put everything up on high and adjust down from there. If theres still no sound then the next step would be to reinstall the sound drivers. You didn't post your exact model but you can find the drivers yourself on here http://www.everex.com/support/support.htm If you have any more questions just post and i'll get back to you.
