This generally means the application that controls volume in Windows, sndvol32.exe, is corrupt rather than uninstalled. There isn't a clear reason why this happens, although there have been cases where third party drivers from soundcard manufacturers completely damage the entire Windows volume control setup.

if you can search for the file and it shows up, try using a windows install disk to repair the files.

let me know if this helps.

Sound (volume) of media player is at maximum but still very soft.


Go to your volume control via Control Panel or double click on speaker icon on task bar and check sound settings and computer volume or check your speaker's volume. Otherwise your speaker at fault.

No response from sub woofer - when i turn the dial nothing happens - all sound other than that seems to be working ok


check the wiring of the speaker set and also check if there is cut of the wires. Check also the connections between the computer and the speaker set. If problem persist then try the speaker into a mp3 player or an ipod, if it does not sound still then probably your sub woofer has hardware problem.

I have the headset with the jack hook up not usb and I would like to know how to get music to come through my computer speakers while I'm talking on my headset and hear the person I'm talking to through my...


You are using one sound device at a time, this is not possible, if you like to be able to hear from headset and play music on your pc at a time, you must have a USB Amplifier and Headset (eg: GN Netcom, Avaya, etc...)

first you must set your Media Player's Option to Devices>Speakers>Audio device to use> DirectSound of your PC.

The other one is your are using a program to talk to other people, that program also has a feature to select the Audio devices to use, you must select that other device like my example above.

Hope this is clear enough to help you out.

No sound from speakers on acer 6706 desktop


First check you dont have a red line through your speaker on your toolbar. If so click it and "UN-mute it.

Check that the speakers are plugged into the GREEN port on the back of the computer and that the speakers are powered up with the volume at about 1/2 way.

Open volume control.

When the box with all the sliders opens up click on OPTIONS (top left)
Click PROERTIES


Make sure that Volume controls, Wave, SW Synth, CD PLayer, Line IN, and MIC all show on there and that the volume sliders are about half way up.

Make sure noe of the sliders have ticks at the bottom, if so UNTICK them.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else unles you know you want that item)

Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.

You should now have sound out of the speakers.

If not double check that you have no problems with your hardware from the device manager.

No sounds


Was the sound working beforehand?
First off try to find a continual source for sound like a music file or movie etc...something that can play while you tweak settings.
As the sound is playing(Make sure the program that is playing the sound file has the volume up, check your Advanced Volume settings by double-clicking your sound icon in the bottom right corner of your screen by your clock. Make sure the sound is set and none of the channels are muted. Next check the volume knob on your speaker and make sure that is turned up. Lastly make sure the speakers are securely connected to the PC in back (follow the cord). The cords are usually color coded, make sure it's plugged into the correct hole.
Good luck!

I have a emachine w3653 and the sound is horrible. Music and all. Sounds like I'm sitting in a barrel or getting a bad echo.


Dear Jenneric2009,
It would be too early to blame computer sound card for the bad sound quality .. here are few questions for you..
  1. How are you listening to the sound.. I mean through desktop speakers or headphone or you have 5.1 speakers installed etc...
  2. Did it ever work fine?
  3. Do you have any DSP software installed on your computer to modify or enhance sound?
  4. Does it sound the same when you listen it through various software.. For example does it sound the same when you play it in Winamp or in Windows media player ... This will tell us if it has to do with any settings on the player.
  5. Did you relocate your computer/speakers?
Most probably it must be due to software settings where you can set the sound effect like as if you are in a bathroom or in a barrel or in an auditorium etc ...
Please let me know if that helps and let me know about the additional information that I requested above.

Best Regards,
Srinivas.

I bought a new computer but the sound is not on.


When you double click on the volume icon (lower right down by the time) what does it say? Sometimes when you plug in speakers they automatically mute to avoid extremely loud and unpleasant eruptions of sound. Assuming all of that is ok have you plugged your external speakers into power? Computers require powered speakers to operate, either a/c or battery. They should have an on/off swith and a volume control, I imagine you've tried those? If yes right click on your sound icon and select sounds. Click on the playback tab and select your new speakers. Hit the configure tab and the set up will guide you from there.

I have a set of Durabrand UC280 speakers. Pluged them into my cumputer. No sound. The speakers seem to work OK. Have checked systems and all say are working correctly. Any suggestions????


Are you sure you are plugged into the speaker output on your computer? Of not try the other outputs, and also make sure the volume is turned up and not muted on your computer, check by double clicking on the speaker icon in the lower right hand corner of your screen or by going to the sound applet in Control Panel.

Have you tried these speakers on another computer or with a CD player or MP3 player? If they don't work with another device either than you know there is a problem with your speakers.

Also make sure that the speakers are plugged into a power source if they require it, most likely they do.

My sound was uninstalled on my desktop how do I reinstall my sound?


Look up your computer to find out what kind of sound card you have. Then google the name of your sound car, and the word 'driver'. This driver is what lets your computer talk to your sound card, which in turn sends the sound to your speakers. That is the most likely cause of your issue. If you reinstall the sound card it should work....

Also, have you tried more than one set of speakers? it is possible you are having a speaker issue... Have you tried headphones? Do you get any sound from any of the above?
