Y50 clicking sound from left speaker and muffled sound

Q: Y50 clicking sound from left speaker and muffled sound

Hello,
I just bought the Y50 yesterday with the GTX 960M. Unfortunatly i noticed while playing that the left speaker started to do a clicking noise, in addition the sound became muffled. When i tilt the laptop the problem is resolved i.e. the clicing stops and the sound returns to normal. After a few minutes the same problem returns until i tilt the laptop or lift it again.
Please help.

Ok this is my first post on any tech help forum so my apologies if i miss out any key information.

Here's the problem, since purchasing my HP Pavillion dv7-1020ea laptop i have had intermittent problems with my speaker sound going muffled, quieter and losing all high tones. This is a continuous problem from the moment the computer starts and doesnt change.

My laptop runs vista 64 with IDT High Definition Audio codec and the drivers are up to date. I have tried enabling and disabling the device, it says it is working fine. Sound from my headphones works fine with none of the muffling. In the IDT control panel, the settings are set correctly, im not attempting to run surround sound or anything.

At first I thought it was a bad connection or something but suddenly the problem disappeared and never happened again for 6 months. But recently I reformatted my PC and as soon as my PC was running again the problem resurfaced. Restarting my PC sometimes fixes it but more often than not it doesn't.

Its very frustrating because I can't pin the source of the problem down. I dont think its a bad connection because it worked fine for 6 months and then when i reformatted it came back. I never experience crackling or jerky sound or short periods of good or bad sound. When i turn my PC on and it wrks, it works fine until my PC is turned off. The problem never just happens as im using my PC, it turns on with the problem, or it turns on without it.

Hello. Test by switching to the Windows native audio driver.
1. Open the Device Manager2. Expand the Sound, Video & Game Controllers section.3. Right click on the Realtek and select to uninstall.4. Put a check mark in the option to delete the driver software, and then ok.5. Restart the laptop and go back to the Device Manager and check again for a Realtek driver. Keep uninstalling & restarting until Realtek no longer appears under Sound...Controllers and "High Definition Audio Device" appears in its place. "High Definition Audio Device" is the name of the native driver.
[The reason you might have to go through the process more than once is because the driver files for more than one Realtek driver could be on the hard drive. When a Realtek driver is removed, the next one gets installed if Windows can locate the files. Windows installs its generic driver only after all Realtek files have been removed.]
6. At this point, test the audio while the native driver is installed and see if the same problem occurs.
7. When finished testing, download and install a fresh copy of the Realtek driver for your operating system. Get it from your Dell support page. Test the audio again
If the same problem occurs with both the Realtek and the native driver, then probably not a software issue.

Hey guys, just got my new laptop (Toshiba L650) with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, plugged in my external sound card (default 5.1 surround from Maplin) and updated to the windows 7 driver.

I only have three speakers and the sub plugged in (front right, left and centre), which is the exact same configuration I had on XP and Linux Mint. For some reason there is no sound coming through my left speaker.

Front right speaker plays correctly
Front left and front centre sounds all come through the front centre speaker

A couple of weeks ago I noticed I was only getting sound from the left speaker. I have a 3 piece altec lansing speaker system (2 speakers and one sub). I could make sound come from both speakers if I pulled the cord going from the computer to the sub out of the sub a little bit, but it was just the sound coming from the left side being played on both sides, so I was still missing sound supposed to be playing on the right side. I just bought another set of the same exact speakers, and the same thing thing is happening, so I'm assuming there's something I need to do with the computer, not sure what though. I have a soundblaster live sound card, any help would be appreciated.

You can configure through the sound manager application of your system. For instance, if your system uses a Realtek HD Audio, you can configure the speaker using Realtek HD Audio Manager.

I've tried seemingly everything, but the left speaker literally drowns out the right speaker. There is sound from the right speaker, just not much at all.

I have to set the L/R ratio this extreme (http://img231.imageshack.us/img231/6579/forumcw2.jpg) to get equal sound, and as a result I have to crank the volume up very high to compensate.

I don't know what it could be. I've even checked the actual cords that connect the speakers to eachother and to the computer, but nothing. Please help!

Hi,

I cant get any sound from my left speaker. I tried another set of speakers and the same thing occurs. If I use the front audio, I get sound from both though. I reinstalled the drivers, and it does not resolve.

This leads me to believe that there is something wrong with the back connection or something.

Hi,

First post here.

The problem is that I am getting no sound from my left hand PC speaker. The right hand one is playing fine. I have unplugged them from the back of the tower and plugged them in again and this makes no difference, although I did hear some very, very low sound from the left speaker while the plug was halfway back in the tower.

I have tried another set of speakers and the same thing is happening with them, so I know the speakers themselves are not faulty.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Sounds like a faulty socket to me. Are you using onboard or a separate soundcard?

If onboard, then try a separate soundcard. If you`re already using a separate soundcard, then try the onboard sound.

I had no problem with sound until I installed Winamp 2.91 and when I played my CD there was no sound coming from the left speaker. I checked my QCD Media Player, which played fine before this and it too was only playing sound from the right speaker as well as my other two media players which played fine before this. The only media player I have which plays from both speakers now is Windows Media Player. I uninstalled Winamp and yet the problem persists.
What could be disabling the left speaker in my other players and yet allowing it in Windows media player? Also, the odd thing is that, when I use the other media players, which now only play through the right speaker, I have use of the features on the CD unit such as the headphone jack and the advance button (to advance to the next track) but when I use Windows media Player I do not have use of these features. Confusing.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
Thanks,

probably the balance has been shifted to the other side. go to the control panel and to sound.

OS: Windows XP Pro SP1
Speakers: Atlantec Lansing 3-piece
Audio Playback: Intel Integrated Audio

The right speaker plays fine, as does the subwoofer. The left speaker does not play. I checked it with an audio meter to see if output was being sent. It was, but at about 20 db lower than the right. Also, if I cranked the volume, and set the Winamp output to left speaker, I could faintly hear the subwoofer and right speaker. Under normal circumstances, though, I don't hear anything if I set output to only the left speaker (not even the subwoofer plays). The problem appeared, seemingly randomly, a few days ago. I don't think I noticed it for maybe a day or so.

I'm on Fedora (Linux) as of now, and it all works fine. Anything I normally could do, I can do. I tried cold booting Windows before this, and that didn't work. I tried both my regular 3-piece set, and a pair of headphones. Both left speakers failed to play on Windows, but both do fine on Fedora (playing with XMMS). Certainly, neither WMP, Winamp, or Quicktime on Windows produced any sound in the left speaker. I did nothing out of normal, other than investigate some Winamp options. Also, I've never seen the Windows-provided ability to mute one speaker and not the other.

Any ideas?

Hey guys! I need help with a sound issue I have on my computers at home using an Altec Lansing Multimedia Speaker system 2100 (2 speakers and a sub) and Win7 Home Premium (64-bit). In Windows XP I used to simply plug the speakers in the output of the computer (green jack) and sound would go to all speakers but now with win7 sound is only played from sub and right speaker, while the left speaker does nothing. At first I thought the left speaker may be busted, but when I switch the right and left jack connections behind the sub, the left speaker plays (through the Right speaker output) and the right speaker stops playing. So I tried putting the 2.1 sound system on an XP computer to make sure it still works fine and it does. Any ideas?

A:No sound in left speaker using Altec 2.1 system in Windows 7

You need to change the sound settings. Open control panel. Make sure the view is set to small icons. click Sound. Right click your sound card and select Configure speakers. You should select one of the boxes under Full Range Speakers. If it doesn't work after the speakers are properly configured, then double click your sound card and you be able to change more options from there. You might also have an icon for you sounds card in control panel that options can be changed through. The main thing to look for is a 2.1 option.

Based on what you have written under you system specs, it looks like you are using the basic default Microsoft drivers for your sound card. Installing the latest drivers from you manufacturer would help solve any sound issues.

Hi all. Long time..........

I just went behind my wife's back and bought a few upgrades for the computer.....Now I have to show their worth.....or else....lol

I bought a new hard disc. The WD caviar Black 1 TB
I bought a second (used GTX260) so I could finally visit SLI land....

And I bought a sound card. My first ever. I always have cheaped out in the past on sound....going with onboard sound...

So I bought a nice new Soundblaster X-FI Titanium.

I installed everything at once. Did a new install of windows and the day and a half of updating of the software.....Jeez that sucked.
I finally have everything working, except this rear speaker thing. Setting up the Mic was a bugger too, but I think I have that done.

Here is the issue. When I do a channel test, you can hear the test signal from all the channles fine, but when you get to the rear left, it comes out of the subwoofer, very faintly.
I have read tons of posts from angry folks who are having similar probs with this. Some say its the cables....(even though they worked fine on onboard sound) Some say I have to disable the onboard sound in the mixer....etc.

I have come here to see if any of you fine folks have a solution that works.....

Sorry for the long post......Thanks for taking the time.
Ps, I am running Vista service pack 2
speakers are the Z5500 using the 6 channel direct. (3 stereo jacks)
(I was thinking of going to toslink to see if that helps)

Cheers.
Corey.
 

A:Solved: No sound from rear left speaker, X-fi Titanium.

Okay. First let me apologize to the 62 people who read my post. Sorry, I am an idiot.
I thought I had checked and rechecked everything before posting, but I missed a loose wire where my rear speaker wires connect to the wall plate where they go in wall up to the location on my back wall.....I reconnected the wire, and bam. It works great.
I was also able to figure out how to get my pc to output digital audio through the card to my z5500 speakers...
You have to start the Creative audio service. To get to it, I had to type something into the search bar just above the start button. Of course stupid me, I did not write down what it was....
But if you read this post, its a good place to look....if you are having probs with your digital output.

My problem is that I cannot figure out how to get sound playing from my left speaker and also the subwoofer. It worked fine on my previous Win XP system.
As far as I can tell only the right speaker works.

The realtek HD Audio Manager does not a a 2 speaker plus subwoofer configuration.

I think your stereo cable has the problem, try connect with your TV or ipod and see if both speakers and subwoofer are working or not. If not, then you may have to buy a stereo cable. Hope this helps

So the two speakers I use for my computer are not completely working. When plugged into my computer, the main speaker with the controls and stuff gives out sound but the other speaker doesn't.

I tried plugging the speakers instead into my phone and both speakers had sound coming out, so I thought it's probably the audio jack on the computer that is the problem.

Is there any way to maybe replace the jack or use the other jacks on the computer for the speakers?

Hi Questionerer,

Seen as though you have tested with your mobile phone and sound IS coming out of your two speakers, it is safe to say that the speaker is not at fault.

I think that your computer is outputting sound panned right, in other words its only sending the audio information to the left side speaker.

To help you with this problem and to eliminate any driver problems please can you do the following:
Go to: Start > Type: msconfig.exe - Press Enter
Go to the tab 'Boot'
Bottom of the window there are check-boxes, tick the one called 'Boot log'
Press Apply/OK
Shutdown the PC
Wait 10 seconds
Turn on PC
Go to - C:\Windows and find a file called ntbtlog.txt

Some days ago I started noticing that the sound coming from my PC suffered from some kind of muffled distortion. I use earphones and theyre perfectly fine, since they work properly with any other device.

Windows 7 x64 (Completely updated according to automatic updates)

This kind of muffled sound occurs at random times in a video, song, etc, I honestly cant specify when does the distortion occur, its mainly a few times at random.

I connect my earphones to an audio entry in the volume and bass control wheel of my speakers and sub woofer.

What have I done recently that could have affected the sound?

-As I had said before, the earphones work perfectly fine, but the sound distortion occurs with all the earphones I have tried. So discard this.

-Recently I removed my speakers' cables which are connected to the sub-woofer, and the sound problem has started occuring closely to when I plugged them back again. This made me think that I messed up with the cables connected to my sound system, but unfortunately this isnt the problem, since when I connect my earphones to the PC tower audio entry, the muffled distortion occurs aswell.

did this whappened when you started using W7? Drivers for audio on laptops almost always contain software that will enhance the quality of the sound produced by the speaker(s), a thing that can't be done with generic drivers.

A:Muffled Sound in PC

Not sure what help this might be, but keep it in mind while you troubleshoot:

If the audio entering an amplifier is too high, it will muffle. FOr ex: your computer sound is turned up, sending high amounts of ausio to powered-external speakers. those speakers will then have bad distortion, mostly at high olume points in the ausio track. (also sometimes at high bass points). try turning your pc volume quite low and see if the problem presents with standard, unamplified headphones directly connected to the pc. If this solves it then it is an amplifying problem almost guranteed.

Hey everyone. I just installed a new sound card (upgrade from O/B sound), when i play music like in Windows Media Player it sounds great. But when i play videos like on You tube its all muffled. What would cause this? Thanks.
 

A:Muffled Sound

It's probably just from the low bitrate used on online videos. The sound quality of those is bad because of it. If your sound is good with good audio files, then there's nothing wrong with your setup.

I tried updating the audio driver and reinstalling it. The sound from the headphones is fine though.There are no cracking sounds like I've seen in other threads.

I recently purchased a Lenovo Y50-70 laptop and I realize every so often the sound dissapears to a very small muffled noise. I bumped into the solution randomly, which is closing and re-opening the laptop (putting it on standby and on again essentially). Can anyone help me with this? Thanks

I am working on my neighbors computer. It's one I gave her, but I am always trying to get the best performance out of this old thing. It's a running a Mitac motherboard from a Compaq computer with a 500MHz processor, 253MB's of RAM, an ATI PCI video card and an AOpen PCI sound card.

I just reformatted and put Windows 2000 on there. It's a bit slow for the system, but W98 is so unstable and I had little success with that.

The installation went fine. I even updated the BIOS. Now it does have onboard audio, but disabled it, in one way or another, in the BIOS (It still shows up in device manager though for some reason, but that's now disabled)

I also ran into putting in possibly a hacked or virus-infected program on it and it, of course, screwed things up. Luckliy I was able to reload everything and get on with the installation of some other programs.

The problem is, that during start-up, the Windows start-up sound is slightly muffled. I tried putting in a different wave start-up, but it did the same thing. I'm pretty sure the problem isn't the sound card either, since I tested the wav in "Sounds and Multimedia" in Control Panel. It sounded fine there.

I also messed around with the advanced features in that category and changed things like hardware acceleration and such, but I really don't know what I'm doing there.

So it appears to me that the problem is in the startup boot sequence itself, right? Or what else could i... Read more

Hi,
Im having a problem which is driving me mad, muffled sound which makes speech (both in games and on youtube etc) completely inaudible. Just sounds like lots of bass and nothing much else.
I have a Foxconn G31mx motherboard which has built in Realtek audio running Windows 7 32bit. I have downloaded the latest Win7 drivers from both Foxconn and Realtek which has made no difference. I thought it may have somthing to do with a recently installed ATI 4850 gfx card as this has a HDMI port but looking at the installed playback devices all that is available is ''Speakers - Realtek high definition audio device'' which is set as enabled and default and ''Realtek digital output - Realtek high definition audio device'' which is disabled. I have tried every possible combination of enabling and dissabling the various options without success.
Any advice or help would be greatly recieved as my little girl is loosing the will to live not being able to play on Nick Juniour website lol.....
Many thanks in advance.

I'm a noob when it comes to the computer world so bear with me. My laptop is about 3 years old and about a year ago, my sound started to get muffled and I couldn't hear voices when I played games. Whenever I move the earphones in the audio jack, I can sometimes pick up the voices, but I have to keep it steady of put a pillow under it to keep it like that. Is it just my computer? Or did something change?

A:Muffled Sound and can't hear talking.

Either the headphone jack is defective or the headphone plug. To determine which it is, use a different headphone (or the small earphones like are used on MP3 players) and see if that works properly. If it does then the jack in the PC is the problem. Unfortunately either the motherboard or a "daughter board" I/O board will have to be replaced. The jacks are enclosed and not (usually) repairable. The printed circuit boards are multi-layer and unless you have the special tools to work on a multi-layer circuit board you can't fix it yourself by replacing the jack.

One other outside possibility. A few PC's, but not all, have the option to reassign the jacks with a Sound Configuration panel. If yours has this, you MAY be able to make the "Line In" jack a headphone jack.

I have a problem with the quality of sound coming from my Logitech external speakers. When I record using INport LP Recorder the sound from my speakers is muffled and not very loud. The same applies to sounds from my Age of Empires Game. On top of that, I get no sound at all when I try and play music from iTunes. 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?

As my title suggests, whenever I listen to music, play games, and so one, my sound is horrible. I want to know if there is some way to set everything to default, or is there some other method of fixing this?

It's a pain, because I personally can not play games with this kind of sound, and no, it is not my speakers, because my headset does it too.. So if you guys could help, I'd appreciate it.
 

A:Getting a horrible muffled sound with my audio!

Try re-installing the audio driver or get the newest driver.

I just got my laptop on Wednesday, (yay,) but when I tried going on Youtube I noticed the sound is very muffled.  I compared it to my old laptop and the sound was much better on the old one.  Heck, the sound on my phone is better.  The same thing happened when I switched to Windows 10 on my old laptop so I went to Microsoft support chat.  They only told me to do the usual stuff I had already found in other searches.  The sound is still muffled and very annoying to listen to because it's like something is covering my speakers.  Can anyone help?
