Speakers Randomly Change volume, Click, and/or Become Muffled.

Q: Speakers Randomly Change volume, Click, and/or Become Muffled.

My speakers are built in with my monitor. I have an
HP w185e monitor
sound card: Realtek High Definition Audio
CPU: AMD E-300 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics
Motherboard: PEGATRON CORPORATION 2AD3
RAM: 3GB
Graphics Card: Amd Radeon HD 6310
Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit
The computer is an HP Pavilion p2 desktop model.

So I will just be listening to music and i'll hear the volume decrease, and the sound become muffled. Sometimes i'll be listening to music and the speakers will suddenly become amazing. It's been happening for several weeks. I haven't installed any new audio drivers or anything.

I can describe the sound as decreasing in quality significantly. Sometimes it sounds like it's clicking rapidly if you put your ear close to the speakers.

Any help is greatly appreciated. This is driving me crazy! LOL!

Edit: It's clicking more loudly now, to the point it's messing with my music.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Speakers Randomly Change volume, Click, and/or Become Muffled.

Reseat the audio cable at both the monitor and PC ends (unplug then plug back in) and see if that helps.

Plug a headset into the rear GREEN speaker jack and see if you get the same thing with a headset. That will isolate the problem to either the PC or the monitor's speakers.

Lately my HP Pavilion dv7 -6135dx has been making a popping noise from the speakers which is independent of both the laptop's set volume and the devices plugged into it. I have checked, and I'm certain that it's not the "Click of Death," as it's not consistent, comes from nowhere near my hard drive, happens independently of memory usage, and will sometimes cause my headphones to "dull" in volume for a brief second. SMART data checks via DiskCheckup also say my HD is working fine, though as I know, SMART isn't always reliable.

The sound comes either from my speakers directly, or from my speaker region at the back of the laptop. Covering the speakers muffles it, so I'm almost certain it's the speakers themselves. The only way I'm able to replicate this sound is to unplug an inserted audio device like a headset. Otherwise it happens at seemingly random intervals. As I said, it's not consistent, but it's happened multiple times in a row before. I think the highest string was five.

My device manager says that the drives are working fine, and this problem has only recently started in the past week or two. I haven't updated my drives recently (at least that I'm aware of) so I don't think it's that either. Google's been of little help as well. The laptop's not even a year old, but it sees a heavy amount of use.

Hey guys. I have been experiencing a muffled sound from my laptop speakers. It happens when i am on Youtube and most other websites with sound, however, when I am on Netflix, the sound is just fine. I have tried adjusting speaker sounds and nothing works. It also doesn't matter if there are headphones plugged in, it still makes the noise. Another strange thing about the noise, is that not the noise doesn't happen every time I'm on my laptop. Someone please help!

I have troubleshot (troubleshooted?) audio devices and had an error detected Hardware changes might have been detected. Another test told me that Low audio device volume had been detected. I have tried adjusting various settings without making any difference (including increasing the audio volume). Is there a not too complicated explanation/remedy?

Correct. "Folder Options" refers to Windows Explorer. The "folders" within a program, like WLM, are under the control of the program. However I noticed that my version of WLM (2009) behaves the way you want without the "Reading" pane turned on. If I turn it on then a single click shows the email in the reading pane. If I turn it off, it takes a double click to open the email to view it. The reading pane is controlled via the "Layout" Viewing option.

My volume button on my keyboard no longer controls the volume. The only way to turn down the volume is to turn it down from the application I am in. For example, if I'm listening to itunes, I turn it down using the volume control in itunes. Or if I'm in Youtube, I use the volume control in Youtube. When I use the volume button on my keyboard, it doesn't change unless its turned all the way down therefore muting it.

Hi, Try the following. Download the Realtek HD Audio installer on the link below and save it to your Downloads folder. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp75501-76000/sp75983.exe When done, hold down the Windows key and press R Into the Run window, type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. In Device Manager, expand Sound, Video and Game Controllers.  Right click the Realtek device and select Uninstall - you should also get a prompt to remove the current driver, tick the box to allow this and then proceed with the uninstall. When complete, restart the notebook. When windows has reloaded, open your Downloads folder, right click on the Realtek installer and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation.  When this has completed, restart the notebook again and let windows fully load for a few minutes before checking. Regards, DP-K

People have said to disable enhancements at the enhancements tab, but there is no enhancements tab on my laptop. I have installed the newest driver, but nothing has changed. Someone please help this is really getting on my nerves. But essentially there is no enhancements tab, and nothing happened when I got the newest drivers.

A:Low Volume through Laptop Speakers

It could be a heat issue causing a component to work intermittently. Often times in electronics something will work when it's cool but stop working when it warms up or will not work when it's cool but then start working when it warms up. These can be some of the hardest problems to diagnose. It's not necessarily overheating, just normal temps causing things to expand and contract. It could be caused by a poor solder joint.If your drivers are good then it could be a hardware issue such as what I described above. If that's the case the fix is to replace the motherboard. Is the laptop still under warranty? If so, you would contact HP about it.

Good day,

I'm using a fairly new HP Mini netbook and ever since I got it I have this problem of low volume in plugged in headphones and speakers. The netbook speakers themselves are pretty fantastic, but if I plug in headphones or speakers, it seems that the computer lowers the volume substantially to the point that I can't even use speakers for listening to music or watching movies (on full blast, you might be able to make out speech on a film for example, but not from very far away; that's how low the volume is).

I've gone through everything I can think of, checked all the various levels in the volume mixer and audio hardware options, made sure everything is to the max, re-installed my IDT High Definition Audio CODEC driver, all with no results. I also have tried out the speakers both with the Loudness Equalization feature enabled and disabled with no noticeable effects. I've also tested the computer with different sets of headphones/speakers and so it must be some properties of the computer that are the issue here.

I appreciate your help.

H,mmm did you check the volume control on both the speakers and in the software? One or the other could be set to minimum. Cycle the volume control pot full down to full up on the speaker, maybe a dead spot in the pot. It can happen. Also you might have it full down and you think it is full up. Turn speakers On / Off. Remove and replug the speaker jack in the computer, making sure it is fully seated. Try a different software program to play via the speakers.

If all else fails try a second pair of speakers. That will allow you to isolate the problem to the speakers or in the computer.

Hi, I bought a new headset today, identical to that of my sister, which is very loud ( in a good way). So, when I plugged the set to my speakers I was disappointed because it was lower than that of my sister's. But then I thought to plug it to front green panel of the unit and boom!!! the sound was crystal-clear as my sister's. The question is: why that happens and how can receive the same amount of volume from both inputs?

A:My headset has low volume when plugged in speakers

If you plug it into a jack on the speakers, the speaker system determines the volume. When you plug it into the headphone jack on the PC the sound chip and system volume control determine the volume.

The Impedance of the headset can also affect volume level.

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.

Hi! I have external Altec Lansing speakers that I use to connect to my iPhone and laptop to listen to music. When I first got the speakers, they worked fine and there was no problem. I've only used them a couple times. Now, they are fine when they are at a very low volume, but when I turn the volume up they start a high "screeching" sound, and as I turn the volume louder, the sound gets lower in tone and louder. I can turn the volume up loud enough to eliminate the sound, but then the speakers are really loud. The sound is VERY loud. This happens no matter if I have a device connected to the speakers or not.

Hey guys,I have a problem with the volume from my speakers. At a completely random time today, my speaker volume drastically decreased. Usually, when I turn the dial to my speakers up to 100%, the sound is extremely loud. Now, at 100%, the audio is significantly lower. When I plug in a headset into the front Audio port of my computer tower, the sound at 100% is lower than what it used to be as well.The speaker model is Emachines, SP-30A. The volume settings on my computer have not changed. I use Windows Vista, and I have verified that the volume levels are at 100%. The power source has not changed. Nor has the wiring changed either (I made sure that the wires running to the back of my computer are correct).Here is what I've done:Ran Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware: Turned up clean.Ran AVG Free 2011: Turned up clean.Ran SpyBot Search And Destroy: Turned up clean.I have attempted to update my sound card driver, however it said it was already up to date.These facts led me to believe that it is not a virus; however I cannot be sure.If anyone could provide some help it would be greatly appreciated. I can't do anything involving audio with this crappy sound.

A:Beyond Fustrated! - Emachine speakers volume decrease!

The only thing that comes to mind straight off is that, depending on what audio setup the system is equipped with, there may be an option like "boost" buried somewhere maybe on an advanced tab in the audio properties, that may have got turned off somehow.

Hi,

Windows XP Home
Dell DIM4400
Insignia Amplified Stereo Speakers (2)
w/ Subwoofer

What I want to know is, at what setting to PERMANENTLY leave
the volume adjustment that is on the speakers.

I noticed I was cranking up the volume using the "little speaker" volume control in the System Tray, and then also noticed the volume setting/adjustment on the (right) speaker itself was only about half-way.

Question:
Better to turn the volume setting on the speakers "ALL THE WAY UP" and leave it there?
or, use up to the MAX setting on the computer audio volume and leave the speaker volume setting half-way or thereabouts?

Could cranking the volume to max on the speakers damage or shorten the life of the speakers?
Or, are most speaker systems "built to take it"?

Thank you!!

A:Best VOLUME setting for Stereo Desktop Speakers?

Not sure exactly but I have found that it works well if I have my computer volume set half way and then use the volume control on the actual speakers to increase or decrease the volume as required. I do this as I use a laptop and sometime my stereo speakers are not plugged in so don't really like full volume pumping out of my tiny laptop speakers. Would be interesting if someone has a definitive answer.
