The sound on my laptop is not good enough and i need to to boost the sound quality . My Vio model no is " VGN-CR23G/R" AND CURRENTLY I AM USING WINDOWS 7


Most likely your sound quality is limited due to the small laptop speakers that come with laptops. Your best option is to use either external speakers such as those used with a desktop or to use earphones. If your volume is just not loud enough, you can try using VLC media player. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/. This program boosts the sound out put while playing different forms of media. Other then these, you would need to invest in an external sound card that connects via usb or firewire to improve sound quality. These can be very pricy.

Poor sound quality


Many laptops have very small tinny sounding speakers built into them. If you wish to get better sound you can hook it up to a set of external speakers through the headphone port (or line out if it has it). You may also be able to get a set of USB powered external laptop speakers for your laptop.

You can check that there isn't dirt covering or stuck in the speaker grill, and that you don't have the volume too loud that it's overpowering the speakers.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa!

Sound quality decreasing


I also had Philips GOGEAR SA52xx. Philips provide In ear earphones for their device. I was also noticing sound quality loss in it. But one day when i cleaned my Inears(earphones) the sound quality was regained. So you will have to clean your ear phones.
You will notice that after removing rubber buds..there is a metal net. you have to clean all the holes in it using a needle or any pointed object. It will improve the sound quality. It may sound weird to you...but trust me it happened to me n i was surprised .....cheers... :)

Winamp or Media Player


Winamp is much better at sound quality, in my opinion, than windows media just because you are able to control the equalizer and sound effects. Windows media player does not allow for this. Not to mention, winamp takes up less memory while running, which makes the playback flawless.

Poor sound quality.I downloaded mp3 songs on internal memory and it sounds terrible.the usb cable is 6ft long.is that the problem?


It maybe that you downloaded poor quality mp3's, which is why they sound poor. Also, check the headphones - try using a different pair and check the difference. Although, it is MOST likely to be that the mp3's downloaded are of LOW QUALITY. The usb cable does not influence the quality of the sound at all. HOPE THIS HELPS!! :)
