Please try to update your driver for sound. If your OS is Vista, please go to Start-Control Panel-Classic View-Device Manager. Please click on the Sound, Game and Video Controllers. Select the one for the sound then go to properties-driver tab-uninstall. Then restart your laptop. Check if the sound got better.
If this does not work, please go back to the driver tab then click on update driver. Please be connected to the internet in order for this to be done.
Hope this helps. Thank you.

How can I fix my this ? Pixel colour fades on screan , though battery is fully charge , how can I fix this please?

some computers will fade the screen automatically when on battery power. on windows systems, you can change those settings (normally) by going to Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Power Options -> Edit Plan Settings (beside the option in use) -> change advanced power settings -> Display (see screen shot)

Replace the battery first. It is cheaper than a whole pump. The battery is constantly being charged and will go bad after time even though it does not get used.

I have a 2000 Monte Carlo SS and my AC and heater have 5 setting not including off. It has 1,2,3,4,and 5. Settings 1 and 2 do not work at all but all the others work perfectly. Does anyone know what can it...

It sounds like the blower motor resister has gone bad change it out and you will have fixed your problem. Most the time they are located near the blower itself and secured by two screws most of the ones I have changed have been easily accessed I have had a few where i had to remove the glove box though.

Tv fades to black very low sound or or goes to blue & says lost siginal then goes toblank turn off set & waite a few min.& turn back on will only stay on for a few min. have to repeat.

This is not a "digital" problem that can be addressed in your setup or fixed at home. This sounds like a fading power supply. Often electronics fail slowly or partially.

You will need to consult a TV repairman.

I hope this helps!

Picture cuts out on 20" Sanyo HDTV

That sounds like a manufacturers fault to me, i would take them back and raise hell, in my professional opinion that just don't happen, unless there is a design failure, often sets are recalled and modified free of charge due to an occurrence such as you describe, the exact same symptoms are pretty much unheard of unless there really is a problem, get onto Sanyo head office and indicate whats gone on, you may be surprised to find there is a free fix...or even contact the local service center as they may also very well know about it and have a repair bulletin. We get them in the shop all the time, and if a customer brings in a unit with such a fault, they are often surprised to find part of the cost id covered by manufacturer..service bulletin warranty claim, usually though they must be inside warranty, but even then, most times they are reasonable,and will still fix them when put on the spot. here's hoping. All countries have differing Chassis.

Receiver fading in and out.

I want to think about this for awhile but first I want to caution you to NEVER turn the volume all the way up and then place your ears near the speakers for diagnosis of an unknown problem. If you inadvertently affect it to come back you can kiss your speakers (and maybe your ears) goodbye.

I'd agree that it is none of your hardware if it affects all inputs, two receivers and multiple speakers.
This sounds like a good one.

The simplest source to use for further trouble-shooting would be FM as it has no external connections, and it's vanilla stereo. Keep It Simple.

"Power bars"? Do you mean like a power strip with multiple outlets and maybe some kind of surge protection? Pare the system down to its most basic form - receiver, front speakers, one power source direct from the wall. What happens? Add components and complexity until the problem returns. Good luck.

Bad picture

I am aware of some TV stations already being switched to their digital stations, even though the government has extended the requirement date to May '09. I noticed on my VCR, when the DST changes; mine doesn't change to the current days as it was made before we changed to 6 extra wks of DST. Does yours do the same thing, or do you set the time manually. If you are not on Dish or Cable and your local TV channels have gone to digital already, that would be the only reason that you are getting the faded/snowy pictures on both. There are 3 ways that you can solve this. My Favorite is #3 for people who don't have cable/Dish. Also, they give you a $40.00 coupon which is the highest amount I personally have seen. 1). sign up for basic cable (if you do, you will more than likely have to look in a higher Ch. # to find your local stations, only a few are being left @ their original Ch. #). 2).Get a Dish. Or 3).You can go to: and apply on-line for a TV converter box coupon. If you have a copier and fax, you can apply that way as well (must be submitted by 3/31/09.) You can also apply by phone @ this ph. #: 1-888-388-2009 for those who can hear. Deaf (TTY-English): 1-877-530-2634 OR
Deaf (TTY- Spanish) 1-866-495-1161. Good Luck!
Remember your local Ch.'s probably won't be where they are now, unless you are in a small town. If this
helps you, I would really appreciate you telling me what you think of my answer. Thanks so much! Once again, good luck! Good Bye & Good Day. P.S. If I can be of further assistance, give me a shout back, and I'll try to be of more assistance.

My screen lighting seems to be not as bright as it used to be.

I'm going to presume you've gone through all your settings to make sure nothing changed. If you haven't, you can do this by going to 'display' in your control panel.
How long have you had the laptop for? LCD displays unfortunately do fade over time. The life of one is roughly 3-4 years. Lamps can be replaced - I'm not sure if this is cost effective for you, though. Your mileage may vary.
Hope this helps! Good luck.
