Somehow my stereo has been adjusted to where you can barely hear the vocals when playing a CD, even though the instruments play loud and clear. I think that it is an equalizer problem, however, the options I see are just to hit "pop" or "rock" or "classical" to adjust it. It doesn't have individual equalizer bars to adjust. Any idea of how to fix this? Thanks!

The vocals are directed to the centre channel. If this is not connected or the connection is poor then it will mute the sound of the vocals.
If you want you can select stereo mode when listening to just music. Not the surround modes. Or you can check the centre channel is working and not switched off. Some amps have the ability to switch speakers off in different modes or settings.
How are you obtaining the music that you play on the Samsung C3010? If you're recording the songs yourself, it sounds like you are recording one channel out of phase with the other. This phasing "effect" is how vocal eliminators work. Try playing back music from another source and see if the vocals return.
Ok right click on the speaker icon next to the clock and press adjust audio properties, a new window will open up with about 5 tabs on top, click on the audio tab and click volumn under sound recording and another window should open with mic, line in, stereo mix/what you hear etc now if you see stereo mix or what you hear put a check mark in the box so you can play music via the web.
But if you don't see it click on options then click properties and list of name's should appear scroll down and find stereo mix or what you hear and check the box and it should now appear next to the mic.
Hope this helps.
That sounds more like a polarity, or phase problem. Make sure your speakers are hooked up correctly, with the correct colors going to (+) positive, and (-) negative. Make sure your rca connection are correct, and that every connection has a left and a right. No stereo-to-mono adapters.
Is setting to "vocal" an eq selection, or a "dolby" stereo selection?
Are you using a dolby surround stereo receiver with left, right, center, rear, etc.?? If so, try turning off any effects, or anything that would send signal to the center speaker.
Lastly, depending on what the source of your music is, it is possible if your connections or receiver settings are not correct...that the music upon playback will be out of polarity, meaning the vocal portion will cancel out. Combining left and right signal together can sometimes do this as well.
An old trick to remove vocals from a song was to rip the right channel, then the left, the combine them (since vocals are typically mixed in a third 'center' channel, though things like reverb or echo are applied to the right and/or left channels which sounds like what you are hearing).
I would play with the balance and mixer settings and see if you can get the vocals back. Also try other speakers or even headphones and see if you have the same problem.
