Hi all,

Last tuesday I've received my new laptop / netbook: Asus X205TA. After installing everything I found out that my brightness isn't adjusting. I've tried to:
- Use all different ways to adjust brightness (charms bar, shortcut, power plan settings etc.)
- Windows update
- Update Microsoft Basic Display Adapter drivers (there are no updates available)
- Disable and re-enable the Display Adapter

Yet: it's not working. I've also have a problem booting up games. Even the simplest of games (as the netbook is low-spec) are either not booting up, or they show errors about not being able to access the video card or so. I wonder whether these issues have something to do with the brightness settings.

I'd appreciate any input from you guys

Cheers

A:New laptop not adjusting brightness

Well issue is that your graphics cards drivers are't installed, nor detected! So you are stuck with Basic Display Adapter Drivers

I had a look at the specs and it says "Integrated Intel? HD Graphics" which isn't helpful as there are different models of the Integrated Intel? HD Graphics

Very similar if not identical to this thread: whenever I adjust the volume on this Toshiba Satellite A135 laptop using the analog dial on the front of the machine, Windows Explorer crashes. Also, the Speaker Properties window in the Control Panel will crash if I click the Levels tab. This only started happening since the upgrade to Service Pack 1 of Vista. (This machine runs Vista Home Basic, and just fine before the upgrade).

Probably a driver issue, I know, but Toshiba doesn't seem to have released any audio driver updates. Driver version installed is Realtek High Definition Audio 6.0.1.5322, from 11/8/2006.

Anyone else have this problem, or hopefully maybe even a fix?

My screen brightness keeps defaulting to extremely dim when I unplug my laptop or don't touch anything for a minute or two. The brightness buttons on the keyboard do nothing, and the slider on the settings section of the left-hand pop-up menu only makes the screen go really dim if the screen is already bright and it will not let it be bright again.

The only way I have found to make the screen bright is...
1. Go to Device Manager
2. Under Display Adapters, right-click Microsoft Basic Display Adapter and select update driver software
3. Select Browse My Computer for Driver Software
4. Select Let Me Pick from a List of Device Drivers on My Computer
5. Select Microsoft Basic Display Adapter
6. The screen adjusts and the issue is resolved

This correction only lasts until I unplug my laptop or leave it idle for a couple minutes. So currently I need to do the above process a few times a day and my laptop is almost useless if not plugged in.
***On the device manager window under display adapters, there was a yellow triangle with an exclamation point in it next to my AMD Radeon HD 8600/8700M. Then, I updated the driver and it went away. The update did not fix this problem.

Hi,
Windows XP Home
RealPlayer 10.5

Ok, I used to have RealPlayer and all it's junk till I wised up
and removed it from my system over a year ago.

However, I recently installed the basic RealPlayer (that is...only allowing
the features that I needed for video/audio) in order to watch NASA TV
e.g. DEEP IMPACT and today's DISCOVERY launch.

My question is regarding why, when I mute or adjust the volume on
the RealPlayer, that it also does the same to the computer's Volume
Control (Speaker Icon in System Tray...Wave setting).

I had been viewing on the RealPlayer, muted the sound and then later
was wondering why I was not able to hear any of my videos, music, etc.
The thought occurred to me to check the Speaker Icon and, sure enough,
there was a check at Wave>>Mute.

Is there a setting I can check/uncheck that will allow RealPlayer and
Computer volume to be independent of one another?

Thank you,

The volume, mute, and brightness keys don't work. Instead, those functions are controlled by Fn+(arrow key). The mute button has no option. The guys I bought the computer from say they used different drivers, so my keyboard thinks it's a different keyboard, and even though they are a computer shop, they don't know how to fix it. I have a feeling there is an easy fix around the corner, but it's been very frustrating trying to find it.  Also, the screen blinks every once in awhile. Is that normal?

I've recently got a new computer laptop with Windows 7 and the first thing I noticed that the screen is much brighter (and maybe more saturated) than my previous laptop (with Windows XP). First I thought it was my laptop, but then I saw an other computer with Windows 7, and the screen there is very bright too. I searched the net and I see that there are more people complaining about the brightness on Windows 7.
I understand that I can set the screen brightness, but it seems like a fact that the "default" brightness on Windows 7 is way brighter than on Windows XP. Some people are probably accustomed to this, but to me it's too much. I can decrease the brightness with the laptopl's controls on the keyboard, but I think that's not the way to go - I think I should look at the Windows 7 configuration. I could go to the ATI Catalyst, but is there an other way? Is the Calibration tool the only option?

And the second question, if this is a common problem, maybe there are some known settings that would take Windows 7 brightness closer to Windows XP and earlier versions?

A:Adjusting Windows 7 brightness - what's the best way?

If these are new laptops then, yes they will be brighter then older computers. But it has nothing to do with Windows. It has to do with the display themselves.

A:Adjusting Monitor Brightness

I think that's just your video card type. If your monitor is old and this has been gradually getting worse then it could be going. You can usually adjust the brightness with your video card settings.

Right click desktop, choose properties, settings, advanced. You may have to try a few of the tabs to find the controls.

I just received a new keyboard today: Thermaltake Challenger Ultimate. I went from a Logitech G15.

First thing I did was connect the keyboard and install the software that came along on the CD, it probably also installed the correct drivers. First after this did I uninstall the software and drivers from the old Logitech G15. But before that, and now after, the volume buttons on my new keyboard is still not adjusting the volume when I press them.

A speaker-icon like this shows up when I press the volume buttons, so its not that the keys are not working: (ignore the text behind it, its me writing an assignment)

Hi everyone, I have a pretty weird tech problem.

What happens is, whenever I adjust my monitor's brightness (from its physical buttons) the screen turns black. However the monitor is still on, the LED is still green and the computer is still responsive, the screen just turns black.

I can use the computer just fine, as long as I don't try to adjust anything. If I do want to change something, I have to change the values a little, then restart, change them again, restart until I have the values I want. This problem appeared when I tried to adjust the brightness by keeping the + button pressed down, so it increased quickly.

Is this indicative of a dying monitor ? It is pretty old, it's an LG L1750SQ, 17 inch LCD, it's over 4 years old. Also, I do not believe the video card to the problem, since it stays pretty cool, it has a good heatsink on it.

Whenever I download mp3 files and play them back, I find a great deal of variation in volume level. Some play back much softer or lower than I would like and occasionally one will play back too loud. I'm trying to find a good program to use that will allow me to adjust mp3 volume levels before starting the burn process so that after I burn CD's and then play them back I won't have to keep adjusting the volume. In other words I wan't to be able to burn 20 or so tracks so that they will all play back at essentially the same level of volume. ( I guess that these programs would also make it possible to eliminate a certain amount of hiss, especially in cases where the volume level needs boosting.)

I've been told that there are programs that will let me make such adjustments. I would appreciate recommendations as to which of these work the best and have the clearest instructions. Basically, how do these programs work? A simple 3- or 4-step explanantion, if possible, would help me a lot.

I'm on windows 10, and I tried reinstalling my sound card drivers, realtek, and this still happens. If I try to adjust it while it's adjusting itself all the way up, or down, the computer doesn't listen. After a restart it may work for a short while, but it always happens again later.

Hi, I had to restore my computer to factory settings a few weeks back due to some trojan/virus. Now that its clean I've noticed the computer makes a sort of beep but its from inside the computer, not the speakers. This mainly happens when I change the volume through the speaker icon and also when I open up a certain video game. Also the soundbar (green volume thing) wont show up when I adjust the volume with the keyboard. Is there anything I could do to fix this?

Thanks for the help.

A:Internal Beep when adjusting volume

I think you can disable this in control panel in sounds/audio devices.
Go under the sound tab to change the sounds. Unless you mean a
beep that is like from the sound of the computer.

AS for the green volume bar, if the volume is still being adjusted, it's
probably just delay/lag, a restart of the computer or trying again later should
enable it to work just fine.

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.

First, a little bit about my laptop. Its a Toshiba P205D with Window's Vista Home Premium, Service Pack 2, 32 bit.

And now, the problem: In the past month, I've noticed that when I try to adjust my volume (at least by the volume wheel) it makes my Window's Taskbar freeze up and stop working. If I click on it I get the "This program has stopped working, would you like to restart it, close it, or wait for it to respond?" message. If I do any of the three, it doesn't fix the problem. The taskbar closes, reloads, and I still can't adjust my volume. The only way to get it working again, is to go somewhere like youtube and watch a video, that somehow kicks my sound adjustment back into gear, and lets me adjust the volume. (After I do that, its fine.)

I've had this computer for about 4 years now, and this has never happened to me before. If anyone know's what can be causing this, or how to fix it, that'd be great. I'm hoping that reformating isn't the only answer because I did that just a couple months ago, and I'm still installing programs and window's updates to this day, so I'd rather not have to do that again.

Any answers would be great, thanks.

Check the Toshiba website for a newer sound driver, or even if it isn't newer than the one your using, download and install it anyway.

I used to have a volume bar in XP, but those drivers no longer work. I have no visual indicator of system volume. That's significant when viewing online media because the system may be maxed out, while the media player may not.

I'd absolutely love the Win7 sound slider to show up when I turn the knob on my keyboard, then go away a few second later. Is this an option somehow? Are there third-party utilities to do that?

Thanks.

My keyboard does that. You need the updated driver/software for your keyboard, I think.

I want to use gpedit or something to prevent my mic volume from changing at all (I want it forced 25% no matter what)

but NO Matter What I do. Skype keeps changing it all over the place! and I already disabled "automatically adjust microphone volume" in the option

But it doesnt do anything.. It keeps changing anyways.

Can I use gpedit and set a policy that prevents any program at all from changing the microphone volume?

Nothing seems to work.. I end up dragging the slider to 25% constantly fighting with it to keep the volume from getting too loud or quiet!!

note this only happens while IN a call.

Solved... By reverting to an older version of skype.. No more microphone changes! (skype 6.3)

Anyone else with this problem probably should try that as well.

I noticed it when i adjusted the volume using the special keys next to the keyboard of my acer aspire 5630. Apparently if I'm listening to music or watching smth and I adjust the volume, it skips through some of the audio and video. Also it takes a while to show that the volume has been set to a certain level. The same thing happens when adjusting it in the Master Volume interface.

Using WinXP if that helps..

Any ideas?

So Windows 7 has a feature that will auto-adjust the volume during video chatting. Seems like a good idea but in reality it just brings down the volume to a point to where I cant even hear the person. I have done some research on this but everything I could find said to go to Sound Settings -> Communications Tab -> and check the box that says "Do Nothing". I did this but it had no effect on Live Messenger. I downloaded Yahoo Messenger and it doesn't have this audio problem. I would much rather use Live Messenger because the video quality is MUCH better than other video chatting programs but I cant seem to get passed this problem. Has anyone had this problem and fixed it? Thanks in advance for any help.
