    Are you using head phones or speakers?



    Try plugging in a set of headphones into the green audio jack and see what happens.

Did you have sound before?
If yes then follow this for xp:
Start/control panel/Sounds, Speech, & Audio Devices/Sound & Audio Devices. Is page greyed out? If yes then most likely its your sound card or on board sound, or your missing drivers.
If not greyed out go to "Sounds" tab, click on any "Program events" sound under Windows then click little black arrow next to browse on bottom right . Sound? If the arrow is greyed out then its the same; audio hardware device or audio driver.
If there is still no sound click on "Hardware" tab and first Sound,video and game controller then "properties". This will tell you under "Device status" if this device is working properly. Do this for each Sound, video ect.... selection in the list. I have found there are usually 6 listings. If not then you are most likely missing a sound driver.

Music too loud voices soft on laptop


1/2 the movies made are like that,
if one movie is ok, and other not , it's the sound mixing
man that made movie. (many are bad)
like when they play loud music over dialog in a drama.
silly but they do,that, . (unlike better movies)
the only cure (hope) is using dolby 5.1 on up
and hope the sound channels can allow you to hear what you want. some content allow the front speakers to be increase for better voice.

Am watching you tube videos sound not working what to do


To make sure that you hear sound while watching videos, please try the following:
  • Adjust the volume control on your computer and speakers.
  • Adjust the volume control located in the lower right corner of the YouTube Video Player.
  • Ensure that the volume is up on other video players, such as Quicktime, Real Player, or Windows Media player, as this might affect the video player sound.
  • Try shutting down your computer and then restarting it again.
  • Videos on YouTube are streamed through an Adobe Flash player. For the best viewing experience, we suggest you install the latest version of Adobe Flash after removing any old versions you've installed
http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/productinfo/instructions/

If you can't hear sound within videos embedded on other websites or blogs, your computer may be blocking third-party Flash content. To correct this, follow the steps below:

Visit:

http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager03.html

  1. The Adobe Flash Player Settings Manager should display.
  2. Check the box labeled: "Allow third-party Flash content to store data on your computer."
  3. To ensure the check sticks please click one of the tabs at the top of that box and then click back to the (Global Storage Settings Panel). The box should still be checked.
  4. Once this is complete, close all browser windows and try playing an embedded video.
Please be advised that this action stores a Flash cookie on your computer. Flash enables this by default upon install.

If this step doesn't help, please check your Antivirus and Firewall software to see if you're blocking third party Flash content.

I've been experiencing audio and video problems for the last few weeks and have tried just about everything to resolve this matter. I'm able to play all music in wmp or watch downloaded movies but I'm...


you need to update your codecs.  a codec is a Coder/decoder hence the name.  the file is coded at one place and your computer has to decode it.  First off you have to find out what file isnt playing correctly be it a divx, and avi, an mpeg, an mp3 , an mp4 , a wav...... and on and on.  once you figure out wich one is messing up do a google search for the codec.  example divx = bad then search "divx codec download" and follow the links till you find one you can download.  scan it for virus then install.

should fix the problem.
