Volume control doesn't work (SiS 2012 Wave problem)

Q: Volume control doesn't work (SiS 2012 Wave problem)

I recently had to reinstall windows XP on my computer. I installed the video and audio drivers that came with the motherboard cd. There is sound and the microphone works, but I can't control the volume normally, it can be controlled as wave.

Also the mixer device appears as SiS 7012 Wave.

I already uninstalled and installed the driver several times from the CD and I downloaded it and installed it too and the problem persists.

hi!

i will try to explain my problem the best i can:

every 3-5 minutes or so, the main window that i'm working in (doesn't matter which program im running, but usually firefox/msn messenger, etc..) stops being the "top" window, and instead goes to the background - as if i opened another internet explorer window on top of it.

this "glitch" is always followed by something even more strange - the sound gets cut off, and if i check the meters in volume control i always find the "wave" meter to be on minimum, and i have to put it back in the middle.

WHAT THE HELL???

can you please help?

I'm running Windows XP SP2 and I have all my sound drivers installed (I can get sound just fine in every app), but I can't control the main volume in the Volume Control. I can adjust the volume with the Wave slider, but the main one doesn't do anything, including mute. Individual applications' volume controls work fine too, just not the main Windows one. It wouldn't be a problem, but it might be the reason why I'm not getting any volume on the Stereo Mix recording option. I just finished a clean install of XP (for a different reason) and it wasn't working before, either. Any ideas?

Hi

Since upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit I can't turn the volume all the way down by using the volume control at the front of the notebook. Worked fine under Vista 32 bit.
The volume control still works but no matter how far I wind it to the left there is still sound coming from the speakers.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

A:Tecra P5 - Volume control doesn’t work properly

As far as I know volume control in the past was mechanical but now it works on different way and it is controlled by specific tool/utility.
To be honest Tecra P5 is not known to me but obviously it is Australian notebook model and according to Australian support page this notebook model is not supported for Windows 7.

That doesn?t mean you cannot use it but this means there is not software package designed for Windows 7 that can be installed so I think there is no much you can do about it.

I know it is annoying but for volume control you can use Windows option placed in task bar.

Yesterday I reinstalled Windows 7 on my notebook PC. I had to use a Microsoft installation disk because unfortunately, serious errors resulted after I installed from the HP recovery program. Consequently the HP drivers that were installed automatically with the recovery program weren't installed on my system. I had to install several of them from the HP support site. I got everything to work except for the Touch volume control, or the Volume Scroll Zone as referred to by HP in the service guide. This is the device located just above the keyboard that increases or decreases speaker volume when you drag you finger on it. I installed the Quick Launch button driver but that only applied to the mouse and pointer touchpad. I looked at the devices listed in my startup configuration. I saw the synaptics pointing device and the HP quick launch buttons listed. So is the IDT PC audio driver.  What am I missing? Where I can I find it to activate the touch volume control?

Short Story
Wave meter in volume control keeps stopping. I googled it, seems to be a virus. Performed a virus scan, came up with nothing. Did it with another anti-virus program, also showed nothing. Need help. Thanks.

Long Story
So basically, I wanted to watch a youtube video. When I played it, there was no sound. Thinking it was a simple volume problem, I checked the video volume, the small icon on the taskbar, and even went into the control panel to adjust the volume settings. I thought it might be my headphones, but I tried using the speakers and neither worked. I tried doing the voice playback, and then I could hear my voice. I thought maybe it was fixed. Played the video, no sound. At that point I thought it was my sound card. I didn't want to replace it, so I kept trying to look for a better solution. After much frustration, I managed to make my way into the volume control. Start - Control Panel - Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices - Adjust the System Volume - Audio - Sound Playback: Default Device: SoundMAX Digital Audio - Volume - Wave. I saw that the Wave option was all the way down, and moved it up. After moving it, I could hear the video crystal clear, so I closed all the windows I didn't need anymore. Well, after about 30 seconds, the volume shut off again. I went back into volume control, and the wave bar was all the way down again. I raised it, and closed the window. I was looking for the apply button to become available, for I had assumed that not app... Read more

I can bearly hear sound from my computer's speakers even with the main volume
set to maximum. I had a similar problem in Windows XP and fix it by
increasing the wave volume in the volume control. I can't find the wave
volume (just the main volume) in Windows 7 ultimate. Where is it?

If I can increase the wave volume,
then that will fix my problem.
Thank you. And yes, everything is plugged in
and powered up. Thank you.

A:Wave volume control...

the simple way is to click on the speaker icon next to the clock.

or control panel >> hardware and sound >> sound >> adjust system volume

depending on your sound card (or chip), you may have an extra set of controls somewhere in your start-menu.

do you know what sound card you have? and are you sure you have the latest drivers downloaded from the manufacturer. sometimes windows update can help find drivers.

Help - I am running Windows XP Home Edition SP3 on Dell PC with IE8. A while back I had a recycler virus which attached itself to my ESET NOD 32 Antivirus 4 and also made my wave bar go to minimum in my volume control sector. I got rid of the problem I thought by finally running Housecall. Everything was fine until now, a month later, and my computer is freezing up and the wave bar is down again. I have to manually hold in the power button to shut down and restart and things are OK for a little while until it locks up again. I ran ESET NOD 32 Antivirus, Malaware, Spybot and Housecall in both reg and safe mode and found no infections, viruses or spyware. Could it be that the recycler virus pops up periodically and how do I get rid of it. I would need to click on a link as I am not computer knowledgable. Thanks.

So every 1~5 minutes my sound is automatically muted and I can see from the volume control that it's the wave slider that goes down. This is getting extremely annoying. I've had Avira Free Antivirus scna for it, but no luck there.

Hello All,Am facing issue with the WAVE volume control . It gets muted automatically and have to manually again raise its volume bar. This I guess is related to the Advertisment pop up's which comes up and I can hear the music of the advertisement. Sometimes 2 AD's are played simultaneously.The strange thing is even when am not using internet explorer, I can find iexplorer.exe being displayed in Task Manager. I am not sure what kind of virus is this. I tried running Bit Defender Anit Virus, but before the scan completes and results are shown, my Dell Inspirion 1525 , shuts down due to over heating(I guess).I ran a Hijack This , so that I can find the problem. Attached for your inputs.

A:Wave volume control getting mute and Ad's popping up

Just an update to my problem. I learned that I was infected by iexplore.exe virus. I tried various tools like1)Hijack This2)Malware Bytes3)Prevx4)Trojan Removerbut none worked for me. finally I tried "Combofix" and seems like it has fixed the issue. I need to monitor my machine for couple of more days to be sure if there is no other problem.The wave control is normal now and I don't hear random advertisment music.Strange thing is after combofix finished , it created a folder on C:/Combofix and inside that folder, it created some exe's and PREVX is claiming it to be a virus threat. Not sure how a virus removal tool can create exe's which are identified as virus themselves.Please suggest, if I can delete the combo fix folder.???Thanks in advance.!!

Problem: when i play songs or watch videos or do anything that deals with the sound, the wave slider in the volume control will automatically jump from the high volume that i set it at to mute.

I have checked out the properties and volume control properties and still can't find a way for it to stay un-mute.

My volume control is the SoundMax Digital Audio driver...
i checked the hardware and it says it working properly and i can hear the sounds but only for some time, before the wave volume automatically jumps to mute...

this is getting annoying....

Any one have a solution to keep my wave volume from muting it self permanently...

Please Respond ASAP

A:Windows Xp Volume Control With Wave Slider

Hmmm...you might try using the native XP volume icon, rather than Sound Max.

I have SM on my system but I don't bother to use, I see no advantage to using the XP volume control (I did try the Sound Max control for a period of time) and any program I use for music file playback will have it's own volume controls.

Could be possible file corruption...I might try uninstalling/reinstalling the drivers which load Sound Max (if I really wanted to use it).

One thing to remember about Device Manager...it has no way (that I know of) to distinguish/inform the user...if a file is corrupt or not.

I started noticing that my sound would randomly turn off, and it turned out in my volume controls that the wave control would automatically shut off by itself even after I fix it. I do not use IE, and instead use firefox. I also get random IE pop up ads.

Hi,

I am running windows XP on a Dell Inspiron Mini and have internet explorer popups coming up in the background. Sometimes there are ads with audio messages. Sometimes the sound mutes (wave volume mutes). I tried reinstalling the operating system, which did not work multiple times, until it finally succeeded (I am not sure why it finally succeeded). Even after this reinstallation (which seemed to delete most files from the hard drive) the popups and other antics continued. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Norton Antivirus aren't detecting anything. I ran DDS and GMER as per instructions prior to posting. GMER generated a message after completing scan that said rootkit detected. I clicked OK and haven't done anything with regards to that message. I have included all the log files requested. Thank you for your help!

I can't use my Control with any other key to copy, cut, paste, or

Help please and thanks, Mary

Here is my hijackthis text file.
 

A:Control/C Control/V control/alter/delete doesn't work

Mary, keyboard problems are not invariably software or malware-related. First things first - what OS are you talking about ? XP, Win 7, Win 8 or what? What type of keyboard is it? PS2, USB or wireless?

Disconnect it and reconnect it a few times, reboot and try again. Turn the keyboard upside down, placing one end on the edge of a thick book, and thump a few times on the back with your hand. Sweep the crud onto the carpet.....

Is it just a keyboard hardware problem, and if so which keys? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/keyboard-shortcuts#keyboard-shortcuts=windows-7 tells you a lot of key combinations with ctrl and shift and alt. Tell us if any or none work?

Open a document and try typing a bit of text. Do all the characters work?

If it appears the keyboard is faulty, can you borrow another to test?

Quite often, keyboard problems are down to wireless problems: and can often be solved by re-installing the keyboard driver.

Hello, I have a problem with connecting my SE K700i cell phone with Windows 7 notebook via bluetooth. I have paired them, file transfer is available, the problem is remote control (HID profile) - when trying to connect either desktop, presenter, kmplayer or any other, it always shows "Bluetooth connection failed. Retry?" I do not know what to do with that, with Vista it worked properly, the driver is the same, so what is the problem? Would be happy, if you could help me.

edit: the problem is in Windows - remote control does not work neither with another cell phone. It has Bluetooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba.

Thx, I have already solved that - In BT settings an option of creating HID was hidden, it offered just dial up networking.

Windows XP Home SP2.
Pretty often clicking on my sound icon (Which IS present in the system tray), does not open the volume control slider. When this happens I go to Control Panel but Sound controls won't open from that location either. There's no way to control the volume and must reboot to get it back (temporarily, because it keeps happening).

Do I possibly need driver updates? If so, which one of these is my sound card?
SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio

Or is it an XP problem.

This on is quite perplexing to me. This is stemming from a volume problem that I had posted before. I have more detail and have narrowed down the problem but not the cause of such. When ever I click the volume control in winamp, not adjust necessarily, just click, my wave setting in my volume control (pannel that comes up by double clicking the speaker in the tray) drops. Of course this affects my overall volume. It is sparatic and does not drop the same amount two times in a row but will drop everytime I click volume in winamp. I am running winXP pro and have not installed so much as an update since the last time this was happening. The only thing I did change is I set up voice recognition in Office XP but I was having this problem before that. I have uninstalled and cleaned out all winamp files and reinstalled. Any suggestions? Winamp is the only player of any kind that this currently happens with.

Also, whenever I am using winamp to play an mp3 or streaming audio and I open another program, any program, or even just minimize/maximize a window, the audio starts cracking. This also has never happend before except of course when there is a heavy load on the system. As I said I am running XP pro, and FYI a Duron 900 cpu and 448MB RAM. As I am having these problems I am using 5% to 10% of my cpu and have 21000k physical memory availible according to task mgr.

Thanks.

My computer is an HP a1213w. The sound randomly stopped working while watching a YouTube video. The box claims there are no mixers available. I checked to see if my sound card is working properly; it is. I was told to make sure it was on automatic and push start, and I did all that even though it was already done. The speaker icon isn't on the toolbar. iTunes and MySpace music won't play. I have Windows XP. Sorry for any mistakes. THANKS! I have now realized how much I appreciate my hearing...

You may have a corrupt driver.
Go to the Control Panel & double click the System icon

Open the device manager
uninstall the sound device
restart the unit to let it reinstall
if that doesn't work download the driver from the manufacturers web site & install it.

I have just bought a Acer laptop. The model, as it says on my laptop, Aspire 4752-6838.

The problem is that my fn hotkeys do not work for raising and lowering the volume or muting or playing. That would be fn + up, fn + down, and fn + f8, respectively.

Interestingly enough, my fn hotkeys work for other functions like num lock, brightness. Im not sure about my other fn keys working, but i dont have a need for them, so i dont care. However i really want to use my fn hotkeys for volume control.

Is there any way to enable this? Or does any one know where this problem arises and a solution?

BTW i read the manual and it doesn't help me with my problem. I also tried searching google and found no help either. If anyone knows where else i can look, that would help too.

Okay, when I first noticed the problem, I tried to use ctrl alt del to stop IE, but the device manager crashed.
So I turned off the computer, and when I tried restarting, the virus started immediately.
After restarting in safe mode, I tried to run My antivirus program (avira), but gave up when the scan was only 5% complete
....after 6 hours
after that, I used System Restore to roll the computer back a week.
Upon restarting, the virus was still present, but partially inactive.
after managing to bypass the virus' redirects, I found and downloaded Malwarebytes AMW.
Successfully ran full scan in safe mode, MWB found and removed a few infected files, including AV Securiy's desktop shortcut.
When my computer restarted this time, the keyboard would not respond at all, but I'm still able to use the onscreen keyboard
Ran MWB again, and this time the second it found a file, Avira's activeguard blocked and removed a malware file, followed instantly by 9 more.
However, The keyboard still didn't work and AV Security's Icon was STILL in the start menu.
Found bleepingcomputer's uninstall guide, downloaded and ran TDSS killer and found...
Nothing.

And that's my story.

I have always been a fond user of multimedia keyboard/mouse controls, particularly volume control. Unfortunately, ever since I got a new audio card (Creative SB X-Fi) in order to use digital surround sound (SPDIF DTS encoding >>> amplifier), muting still works, however, volume control doesn't change anything.

Now I am aware of all the arguments that you can't change digital output volume, however, i know this CAN be done. I have done this myself in two ways, firstly, by changing the EQ level in the Creative volume mixer, and more intruigingly, by changing Creative's "What U Hear" level in the recording tab of the control panel sound controls pane.

Ideally, I would like keyboard volume controls to adjust the "What U Hear" level, however volume control only changes the default PLAYBACK device, and "What U Hear" is a RECORDING device.

So here is my Question:

How do you configure volume controls to adjust the "What U Hear" level? Alternatively, can digital volume control be achieved in another way?

I'm sure this can be done by changing a registry key associating volume +/- and default device, but no luck so far. If anyone can help or has another method for control digital volume I would be much appreciated.

PS. I am not interested in using my amp's remote for volume so please don't suggest that.

A:Creative X-Fi digital volume control. Help, I KNOW this can work!!!

Unless you are a programmer and can create a program to do this specific task, I don't see a way around it. The S/PDIF doesn't use the sound card or at least the parts of it that can be controlled by the usual methods.

What you are hearing in the PC speakers is being generated by the PC's sound card, after the digital section so that is two different functions.

It looks like, to me, that "you can't get there from here".

In the search box, Start typing devmgmt.msc and then press enter.
Select the Sound, video and game controllers listed and expand it.
You should find Realtek High definition audio or audio controller please right click on it.
Now select properties.
In the properties window, under Driver tab, click on Uninstall button.
Check “Delete the driver software for this device.”
You want to delete the driver click OK.

After uninstallation please enter your service tag # on the link below, select the OS, then download the BIOS from BIOS section and audio driver from audio section onto the system and install it.

Hi

Thanks in advance for any help
I've got a a Dell Lattitude D820 with Windows XP home.
One day, out of the blue, I started getting an error message when Windows tries to boot.
Unmountable_Boot_Volume

with some unhelpful directions, and then at the bottom,

Stop: 0X000000ED (0x864FB590, 0xC0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
I checked out some different places and the general advice was to try and boot windows from the Windows CD. After setting the BIOS and cleaning the disk, this is what happens

Blue screen with ?Windows Setup? appears and at the bottom it tells me all the little steps it's taking to get windows going. It all goes well and I get ?Setup is starting Windows?

but then I get another blue screen of doom, this one says:

Stop: 0x0000007E (0xc0000005, 0xF76130BF, 0xF7A5F208, 0xF7A5EF08)

I'm not even sure I can reformat if the CD won't work. Ugh.

Are you using IDE or SATA. Did you check to be sure you are using the proper cable if you are using IDE? That could cause the first error and the second error. The second error is a driver based error. Hopefully you have a backup because there is a possibility your hard drive is dying. My suggestion...check the cabling...remove any unneeded hardware from the computer...check to make sure everything else is seated properly and try to start up. How old is the computer?

Not sure if ths belongs here or in the security thread??

I could swear I've seen similar problems on this forum, but I did a search and didn't come up with anything.

3Ghz Pentium 4 512 MB of RAM running XP Pro. Last night a user on this PC installed MS updates, by logging off via the "install updates and shut down" option. When she came in this morning, the PC didn't respond to control + alt + delete. She asked me for help in logging on. I clicked on the help link in the control alt delet prompt, and the password prompt came up!?

The MS update button(at the bottom right corner of the screen - not sure what this is called) on her login still had the exclamation point on it, so I clicked on it to install the updates again. It installed and prompted for a restart. So I clicked on the restart now option. Nothing happened. I went to Start->shutdown, and nothing happened. I hit control alt delete, and nothing happened.

Ran spyware checks via spybot and ad-aware and they only turned up cookies. I am in the process of running a virus check right now.

My userid on the same computer has no problems. When I hit control alt delete, I get the standard prompt.

The two sites entered in the boxes are the ones I've tried to test the feature with, but both are not being blocked.

Can someone see anything I've done wrong?

I have tried emptying the cache and rebooting the computer and router, but still the pages just refuse to be blocked.

What's happening??? Advice would be appreciated.

Well I dont know what caused this but I can open the control panel but when I click on something eg. "uninstall a program" or "change the theme" there comes a message saying windows explorer has stopped working, thus restarting explorer.exe

I'm running windows 7 professional 32 bit.

Edit: it also crashes when I reopen the control panel when the control panel is already open.

I'm running Microsoft professional, Internet Explorer and have a Google toolbar.

All attempts to add software are blocked and the add remove feature in the control panel won't open. For example, I can't update my old version of Itunes because the popup for the update gets blocked. I know about the popup blocker in the Google toolbar, and how to handle that, that isn't the problem. In Internet Options, the security setting is at medium and under the advanced tab I reset all options to default.

A:Add Remove In Control Panel Doesn't Work

What version of IE are you using?

What other security programs do you have on the computer? It's possible that one of them is blocking the pop-ups.

Hi everybody,

as described I use a Logitech G510 keyboard with multimedia keys and the posibility to insert a headset into it (the keyboard got its own soundcard). The keyboard also got a volume wheel which worked with Vista like it should: I could controle the speaker's volume by the keyboard.

Now with Win 7 I can't use the wheel anymore, even with the latest drivers. Does anyone know this problem?

My system:
OS Win 7 professional 32 bit
Intel core duo E4500 2,2 GHz; 2GB RAM
Sapphire HD5770 graphiccard
Best regards from Germany!

Hi,
I recently noticed that my ctrl+a doesn't work. All the other ctrl combinations do! Ctrl+a doesnt allow me to "select all" while word processing or use this combination in games (first person shooters).

I have a logitech G15 and other keyboards and they all dont allow me to use ctrl+a. I have tried different versions of keyboard drivers for my G15 and without. I plugged the keyboard into another W7 and it works

Im assuming this is an issue with my OS now.

I know reinstalling windows is a option but want that to be the last resort as i only reformatted last month(i think it only started occurring when i reformatted)

EDIT: I have fixed my issue - it turns out my user account was corrupted, so I had to make a new one and copy all my documents folder over!

I am hoping someone on this forum can help me. I have a Thinkpad X60s, about a year old and I am running XP. Randomly my computer becomes sluggish so I try closing programs. I then figure out that one program is frozen (come to think of it, that program may always be IE) and I can't close it. I then try to warm boot with ALT CONTROL DELETE but it doesn't work. In fact, instead of getting the task manager, my screen saver comes up without any icons on my desktop. I have no cursor and can't do anything but unplug or take out battery and manually crash the computer. It then will start normally though it takes longer for the icons to appear.

I regularly download both IBM and Windows updates, I defrag regularly, do virus scans etc using Norton 360. I also have run Think Pad Productivity Center maintenance tasks.

Other than that and the slugglishness the computer runs ok.

Any help out there? I am frustrated and IBM has not been able to help, except by telling me to change the hard drive or send it to them.
 

A:Freeze,alt control delete doesn't work, lose all icons

Yes I think this is a hard drive issue too. Check to see how much space you have left on it. Go to My computer and right-click on the C drive icon. Click Properties... Also, you might consider checking the hard drive with a utility like Seatools from Seagate. IBM notebook drives are noted for their high failure rates...

Back up your important data please, ASAP

Hi,

Please I hope that you can help me.

I am having a problem as regards to my Volumne control not maximizing.

The problem is in my taskbar on the right-hand screen of computer at the bottom there is an icon that says " Volume", now usually when I want to listen to music I normally double-click and a window would show up and it would show me at least 5 wave lenghts that I can adjust.I noticed that when I went to adjust my volume today that the window would appear but now rather than I getting to see the maximized form all I am getting now is the minimized form.

Now this is the problem
- be it by double-clicking the icon in the system tray, or going to control panel and doing it that way, it opens already minimised to the taskbar at the foot of the screen, and no matter what i do it won't maximise, and so i can't adjust any of my volume settings.Even if I tried to "right click on it? " it only shows me "Minimize" and "Move", while the other items are shaded out.

So please help me get the Volume screen to be maximized please.

It seems that whenever I play Far Cry, I am unable to raise or lower the volume of my speakers, until I exit to Windows. I have a Microsoft Wireless Multimedia keyboard that has the volume control right on the keyboard. I have a Soundblaster Live! 5.1 soundcard and 5.1 speaker system. I can control the volume in the game when I am using headphones but not through the speakers. It only happens when I play Farcry, and I don't think this happened before the game's latest patch. Not a big issue, but would like to be able to fix it, if possible. Thanks.

This happens with ALL web pages that have multiple select boxes. It only happens on my desktop (XP with i.e 7), and not on other computers in my house with ie7.

I seldom want sound when I am on the computer. Hence, I have the "Volume Control" icon on the task bar so that I can easily activate sound when desired. This has worked fine for a long time. However, the error message I include below now appears.

I can't find the indicated icon on the Control Panel. Could this be because I am using the "Classical" display mode? If so, how do I go to the regular "XP" mode?

If there is another way to fix this problem, I sure will appreciate advice.

A:Solved: Volume Control problem

Try the following:

Go to Start -> Settings -> ControlPanel -> Administrative Tools -> Services

or from Start -> Run type in services.msc to launch the services screen.

Find the service named Windows Audio, which manages Windows audio devices.
If this service is stopped then audio and its associated components will not work. Set its Startup property to Automatic so that it starts everytime when you start your system.

Double click on Windows Audio to bring up "Properties" so you can change the startup to automatic, start the service, and click apply.

Hope this helps.

Imagine your turning the volume down with the speaker icon, the music in the background is slowly fading it, but when you reach the bottom of the bar, the music is playing as if its turned up all the way, as for turning the volume up, its normal until you reach the top and its not as loud.

Thats my problem, and I'm really hoping someone can help me because its getting really annoying.

Hello,

I have a problem with the analog sound output on my Z30-A (internal speakers and line/headphone jack). If I play e.g. music I can see a clearly low-volume signal on the volume control source fader in my Win 8.1 volume control. But on the master fader I get a totally overdriven and distorted signal. Even turning down both source and output doesn't help ... it simply sounds horrible.

see: Link:[https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/30325547/SoundProblem.jpg] (sorry, its a german system)

here one can see that the music player (far right) delivers a low volume signal while the master fader (far left) gets a 100% volume distorted signal.

If I use some external speakers that connect via USB (Logitech Z305) it work perfectly.

I already unistalled and reinstalled the newest version of the drivers for my soundcard. But that problem is very persistent. It seems that something pulls the signal to maximum but I cant find any control to turn that off.

I am not completely sure when that started but it could be connected with the start of using a USB headset. But I already uninstalled that software again but that did not help as well.

Any idea?

Thank you very much

PHILIP

A:Problem with volume control on Satellite Z30-A

Hi

According to the notebook specification and the drivers available on the Toshiba driver page, this notebook supports the Realtek sound card.
Therefore the Realtek HD audio manager software should be available in the control panel.

The Realtek HD audio manager provides different settings as well as the speaker configuration options to get best sound performance.

Furthermore Toshiba notebooks are preinstalled with an DTS sound tool/app
This software provides audio enhancements for your computer.

To be honest, I?m not quite sure what could affect your sound volume but the mentioned tools and the configuration should be checked definitely.

First off,this is my first post ever on this forum ( yay ) and i'm not too up to date with technology and the terminology that goes with it so you will most likely have to break some things down as simply as possible for me.

So basically i just bought a new set of logitech x-530 speakers which are amazing and all except for this one tiny problem.

Whenever i connect ANY pair of headphones or earbuds or w.e into it's headphone jack i can hear the sound just fine but i cannot control the volume using the dial.Basically it's like they are connected just fine but only to the extent that i can only hear sound but not control it.

(My own mind told me to first off try and update my sound drivers but you see i don't quite know how to do that ,i let the thing search for any available updates on its own but it always says the drivers are up to date which i don't really believe.)

Help would be appreciated.
 

A:Speakers volume control problem.

Are you sure the volume control for the speakers is suppose to control the headphones and not just the speakers?
Does it work to control the speaker volume?
If it is suppose to control the headphone volume as well then its going to be a hardware problem with the volume control dial or something else in the speakers and not anything on the PC, so updating the drivers isn't going to help. Once you plug the headphones and use the dial on the speakers the computer gives up the control - you can still control the master volume on the PC but the dial should work independently.

You can either try contacting Logitech for support to find out if your set is broken or wait for someone with the same or similar set that knows if the dial can control the headphone volume as well.

The Wave volume keeps muting itself every minute or so. It's been happening for the past few days. I'm not sure when it exactly started. I tried a system restor but all the restore points were gone besides the one from the day before, so i restored it back to that day anyways and nothing changed. I have tried unplugging the interent connection and running antivirus programs in Safe mode without networking as well disabled safe mode before doing it so the virus cant reintroduce itself to the system through system restore. I've Ran Maleware Bytes, SuperAntiSpyware, and AVG 12 after doing this. Also lately I've been noticing a lot of windows updates that are prompted for updating. I've also used TddsKiller and HitmanPro while in normal Windows mode. I seen in another topid very similar to this one they said to d/l OTC and run that which I did(still to no prevail). I've also noticed when I run the Antivirus/Antimalware programs they are taking very long to run in safe mode. SAS took 7 hours, Malware Bytes took 5 hours, and AVG even took longer. I'm not sure what else to do. I use my computer for work and school and need the sound for many things, It's not only a distraction but it's putting a damper and time crunch on my work and school because of this problem. I would be very appreciative if someone would be willing to help fix this problem. I'm not what you would call a computer genius but I do know my way around a computer.

OK, I've been doing some research to find a solution, and it seems this problem is widespread, but I found need someone to personally help me. I ran AVG and Malwarebytes and they found nothing. The "wave" sound setting keeps muting itself every few minutes or so for no reason, and even if I drag it back up after a few minutes it just mutes itself again. Also, I will occasionally hear an ad (that sometimes isn't even in English) in the background of my computer, even if I don't have anything open! I'm not sure what's causing this, and I really don't want to do a system wipe. Please help!

To keep things simple I have recetly built my own HTPC and am using a HDA Digital Mystique 7.1 Gold soundcard for audio. When I use the windows remote to adjust the volume it only changes the volume of the master volume level and leaves the wave volume level unchanged. I know that my best bet is to simply change the volume on my AV Receiver and leave the Wave and Master volume at mid - max but when my girlfriend uses the HTPC she always uses the remotes volume control.

Having said that I would simply like the option of being able to change the volume of my HTPC via the MS remote instad of just the amp.

If more information is needed or if you would like a better explanation of what I am trying to acheive then please feel free to ask.

Regards, Matt.
 

A:Adjusting Wave and Master Volume

You said the remote can controll the master volume. So just turn everthing else up to full and then just use the remote, because the master volume will controll the whole volume.
