Master volume does not control USB speakers

Q: Master volume does not control USB speakers

I connected a DAC to my laptop and set it as the default device from the control panel. Now the master volume mixer does not work at all.

When I change change the "master volume" slider - the others (WMP, firefox, etc...) apparently change with it too but there is no effect on the actual volume. But when I change each individual mixer it does.

How do I fix the master volume so that it works as normal? Any help is appreciated.

I have tried newest drivers for my sound card, tried new mouse, and have tried a new keyboard. I even tried different Operating Systems, (Win98,2K,and XP) all operating systems act the same. Seems like no matter which operating system I install all the master volume contols act the same..(I set it at 100% and it automatically goes back to 0 where i have no sound.

hi -

i have a logitech wireless keyboard (model yrak73) and am running windows xp. on the keyboard, there are buttons that can raise, lower, and mute the volume of the computer. however, it raises, lowers, and mutes the master volume. the master volume on my pc does nothing. however, the wave control does work for sound.

so...

1) is there any way to make the master volume work and control the sound?

or

2) can i change my keyboard's settings so that it raises, lowers, and mutes the wave control instead?

Hi everybody,
I lost my volume control knob for my Monsoon computer speakers. I was wondering if it's still possible to get the speakers to work properly. I am getting no sound when I hook them up to the headphone jack. The control knob does not have a on off button, only volume control. I appreciate any help anyone might give me. Thanx.

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.

I recently purchased the Polk Hampden Speakers. For some reason, the manual volume control built into the speakers themselves doesn't affect the volume level. The only way I can adjust the volume is by using my computers volume control software (the little white speaker in the bottom left of Windows 7/8). I am fairly certain the hardware volume control isn't broken, because when I first plugged them in ( a week or 2 ago) they worked fine. It wasn't until I disconnected/reconnected everything from my computer when I installed a new desk that this problem started.
However, even the software volume control isn't working properly either. In particular, when I go into the mixer to see the volume levels for each application, if I adjust the main "Device - speaker volume" it won't alter the specific applications volumes accordingly. Like, I can reduce the main - device speaker volume all the way to zero (not muted) and the applications will still have the same volume level as they did before I adjusted it.
Finally, even my keyboard bindings to the volume control are whacky. I can still adjust the "main - device speaker" volume with the keyboard, however since this "main - device speaker" volume no longer influences the individual application speaker volume level it is pointless to do so.
I have tried disabling all other sound drivers/sound hardware, but it doesn't help.

I am having a simple yet frustrating and annoying problem. I am using a Packard Bell iPower laptop, and Audiohub USB speakers (cause laptop speakers are pathetic) with a Windows 7 OS. The problem i am facing is that i am unable to control the master volume of my computer using the knobs on my usb speakers.

Apparently, whenever i control the knobs i control the volume of the application, rather than the master volume. Does anyone know what i can do to solve this problem? I have tried installing the latest drivers for my audio drivers (Conexant High Definition SmartAudio 221).

So far this problem occurs on certain games and on media players. Thank you very much for reading.

Your audio jack is a Stereo port. So, it will not split the audio into 2 mono mixes. I think you would be really hard pressed to find software or a sound card that could do what you are asking.

Hello :)
I hope I put this in the right area..

I've been searching for a solution to this volume problem for a while now, but to no avail. I've found others with a similar problem, but no solution. So here's the deal: I just got a new motherboard, and ever since I got it my volume control has been faulty. First of all, all sounds are very quiet, even when all volume sliders are set to maximum. Next the main volme control has no effect whatsoever on the volume of the computer. I can can slide it all the way to the top, or all the way to the bottom, nothing changes. The only thing that makes any difference is the Wave control and it barely does anything. Also, when I put "Mute all"...it doesn't mute. However when I put mute for Wave control, no sound comes out.
All this is incredibly annoying because I often listen to music on my computer, but now I basically can't hear it. To note: I don't have a volume control on my keyboard, or on my speakers, and I know nothing is wrong with the speakers.

If anyone could help, I would really, really appreciate it. Thanks :)

I have explored about 40 resolutions from software to hardware trying to correct the problem. Short of a complete re-install of OS.

things I have tried:

Un-installed about a dozen uneeded and possible conflicting software such as real players, limewire, ipod software, Itunes software.
-No avail
Un-installed and re-installed sound card drivers
-No Avail
Tried both system restore and hard disk restore
-No avail
Explored and removed several possible malicious software items through different parts of the C drive via DOS. Mostly these were mere browser assisters etc etc...(my browser is working much better now Heh..

Tried driver updates
-No avail
Tried every malicious removal tool i have (Hijack this, spybot, combofix...etc)
-No avail
Tried to restore regsitry and explored registry to make sure the volume was enabled

Has anyone even heard of this happening before?

A:Master Volume is muting itself

Could still be a virus or malware, don't just trust one source of protection. I did a check on my pc using the software I have been using for years and found nothing, booted using a Diagnostics Boot CD with spyware and virus programs and picked up a few that had gone unnoticed, it depends upon the program that is being used and whether the virus writers have found a way to work around it, also what the software is able to detect. They don't detect everything.

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'm running windows XP on an old Dell Inspiron 1501 and I'm trying to get my microphone to play directly through my speakers so I can record them both simultaneously. The only answer I've been finding is to tick the 'microphone' checkbox in the volume control playback properties panel, but I don't have a microphone checkbox.There should be a 'microphone' box under SW Synth and CD player but I don't get one apparently.I've downloaded the latest SigmaTel Audio drivers from Dell and despite not having a problem with them before this, I'm inclined to believe that they're the problem.

Those two pages detail how to get an Input Monitor checkbox which functions just like the microphone one I wanted (although you can only mute it, not alter the volume). I used Instructional Set 3 from the second page, having to add the 'RecMonitorMute' entry as detailed in the first page and I can now hear my microphone input directly through my speakers.

HOWEVER, I'm still unable to record both the microphone and speaker sound at the same time. I thought recording the 'Stereo Mix' channel with the microphone coming through the speakers would work but it isn't and I don't know why. Any ideas?

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.

Just a hunch, try a different mouse... if your mouse has a scroll wheel, it could be reducing the volume. Same if you have a keyboard with volume control or something like that.

It's an easy thing to try and eliminate as the source of the problem

Hello,

I've got Win7 x64 on a lenovo G560, and I'm trying to record from an IE webcast using loop recorder.

The recording application has the ability to select a device from the mixer to record from, but when I raise the volume level of IE in the mixer, the volume level of the main speakers raises too.

In order to set the recording level correctly for the recording app, (around 80%), the speakers on my laptop are so loud it's annoying. You have to shout to be heard by anyone else in the room.

I realise that for desktop users with a separate amp (and hardware volume control) this might not be a problem, but for me it is, because my laptop uses the Win 7 mixer to set the speaker volume - no hardware control.

How do I un-link the master (speaker) volume from the others?

this maybe a simple solution but have you considered plugging a set of headphones in?

for your information, no you cannot unlink the master volume because as soon as the slider for IE reaches its peak, then it raises the volume of the master slider, there is no way to override this, if it is too loud then i can only consider plugging in a set of headphones.

The Enter key normally does not regulate volume control on most computers. What is the system model of your computer?

Thanks and regards,

Since last March I've been trying to discover how to read the master audio volume setting using VB.NET

I'm writing an alarm clock function and would like to be able to: -

Record the current Audio Volume setting,
Change it (up or down),
Play the 'Alarm Clock.wav' file then,
Return it to it's original level.

I've learned how to increase and decrease the master volume but I'm currently having to increase the volume buy a set amount
(at the moment 80%), then I play my .wav file... Then reduce the volume by the same amount... which is fine while ever the volume
is originally set very low or off, but if the volume had been set higher than 20%, it will have stopped increasing when it got to 100%
and then would have been turned down (in this case) to 20% which is a bit crude, but ok as far it goes but nevertheless a nuisance.

Can anyone tell me how to read the set volume using VB.NET ? It'll be simple to do what I want if only I could read the set volume.

A:Master Volvme Control in VB.NET

Hi Guys, I'm still struggling with this problem.

I've now spent many more hours trying to pick out the part of a posted code that will do the trick for me, sadly without success, it doesn't help that everything changed with the release of Vista, and (I believe) again with the release of Win.7 so that anything posted prior to that isn't relevant.

Surely there must be somewhere a straightforward way to read the current setting of the Master Volume, it's obvious to me that 'straightforward' might be stretching a point but somewhere to start would be nice.

I could post reams of examples of code that is supposed to access the Master Volume setting, but they all come with supposed Get Volume, Set Volume, Set Slider, Set / UnSet Mute, display this, display that, none of which work I might add. Trying to pick out the 'Get Volume' part has proven to be a non-starter, especially the 'Master Volume' part as opposed to this sound track or that track, this channel, that channel... It always seems to be wrapped up in some other function and usually addressed by '0,0,0,0' with no documented explanation.

Can someone please point me to where I can discover how to (just) read the Current Master Volume setting.

Popa.

Is there any way to adjust master audio volume directly using VB.NET ?

I can find C++ coding which, sadly means nothing to me.
There's also quite a lot out there for VB4, 5 and 6 but I can't get any of that to relate to .net.
Most of those seem to want to invoke the 'Slider' via the mouse which is not what I'm after.

I would like to be able to: -

Record the current Audio Volume setting,
Change it (up or down),
Play a *.wav file, then
Return it to it's original level.

Is this possible?

I've had some success with 'AxWindowsMediaPlayer' but only with it's own increase / decrease functions.
I can get it to increase the volume to the level of the main system volume setting, but not beyond,
so if that's at zero I get no output at all. As for the first part of my requirement,
record the current level, I've got nowhere with that at all.
I tried putting the one file I want to use in resources but can't find how to access it,
I have had to put the file in a folder and call it from there, it works but it seems a little crude.

Poppa.

I've been using my microphone and a few days ago on the volume control the mic volume was at the top. Yesterday, it was in the middle and i couldn't slide it up any higher than that, and today it is at 10% and i cant budge the knob to turn it up. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong?
 

A:Mic volume unable to go above 10% on Volume Control

mmmm....actually i've had a very similiar problem....not quite sure how i fixed it though. Try updating your drivers for your soundcard, that might help. Also(obviously) go into control panel, and mess with things from there. Also, do you have any errors with any sound drivers of any kind? i know if....kind of nuke some of mine(stupid me) with an anti-adware program....if you have that could be part of the prob, and those usually aren't to hard to fix, just take a little time.

I am having a simple yet frustrating and annoying problem. I am using a Packard Bell iPower laptop, and Audiohub USB speakers (cause laptop speakers are pathetic) with a Windows 7 OS. The problem i am facing is that i am unable to control the master volume of my computer using the knobs on my usb speakers.

Apparently, whenever i control the knobs i control the volume of the application, rather than the master volume. Does anyone know what i can do to solve this problem?Or perhaps a software which sets the volume to control to always be master rather than the application volume? I have tried installing the latest drivers for my audio drivers (Conexant High Definition SmartAudio 221).

So far this problem occurs on certain games and on media players. Thank you very much for reading.

Solution/Software suggestion is much appreciated.

My apologies, if i have posted on the wrong section, kindly move if able

I am running Windows 7 on a nearly brand-new HP Pavilion DV6. I am trying to use Audacity to record a live radio stream playing in Windows Media Player. I am trying to use the Volume Control to do what I am trying to do: In order for the Audacity recording to be of sufficient volume for playback, I have to turn up the sound on Windows Media Player in the Volume Control. This necessitates me also turning up the "master" volume on the speakers in the Volume Control because putting the "master" volume low sets a governor on all the other volumes. But I don't WANT the speakers to blare. I just want to turn up the "internal" volume on Windows Media Player so I can record this properly!

My speakers are directly linked to that "master" volume control.

Can I remove the governor link between the "master" volume and the individual program/device volumes? That would be exactly what I need, and there was no governor in Windows XP.

See screenshot attached.

Hi everyone,

I noticed the volume of my music was not as loud as it was in the past when playing CD's or MP3 files with Windows Media Player 10. I had the volume turned all the way up in Media player and also in Realtek HD Audio Manager, but the sound was just not anywhere near as loud as it was before. I recently un-installed "Discover stream hub / Discover.exe" and thought that this might have had something to do with it, but that does not seem to be the case.

I decided to try to play an mp3 file with Realplayer and found that with the volume turned up in realplayer, the mp3 files sounded normal again, plenty of volume.

What surprised me is that if I close Realplayer with it's volume control turned up, then open the MP3 with Medial player, it will sound normal in media player, (plenty of volume). If I turn the volume control in Real player all the way down, close it, then play a file with Media Player, there will be no sound at all.

Somehow, the volume control for Realplayer is effecting and overriding the volume control for Media Player. Can anyone offer any suggestions as to how this might be happening ? Has anyone else ever experienced this type of thing ?

It's not a big deal now that I found out what was going on, but tracking down problems like this can drive you nuts. It seems crazy that the volume control from one program would control the other, I'm just wondering what might be going on. I'm using Windows XP Media Center Ed... Read more

A:Real Player volume control also controls Media Player Volume ?

Hi John

The reason that this happens is that when you change the volume in real player, it changes the 'Wave' volume for the whole system. I don't pretend to know too much about this but basically, real player changes part of the system volume which also affects the volume in media player. To see this for yourself, open Real Player and then go into Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices under control panel. Click on Advanced Volume Controls under the 'See Also' heading on the left. There should be a column labelled 'Wave'. If you now change the volume in Real Player, you will see this changing also. As a result, it changes the volume system wide. Hope this solves your confusion.

All of a sudden no volume coming from my Dell computer integral speakers. Checked all mute buttons on keyboard and on control panel sound devices are not muted.
Any ideas
 

A:no volume from speakers

I've had a problem like this before. My problem the first time was that was that one of the bars in playback control were all the way down.(If you click on the speaker in your task bar then open volume control.) The second time was when i was in the same thing in playback control click on advance in the volume section then uncheck the digital output only then my speakers worked. Also if that dosn't work try reinstalling your driver for your sound card.

I have had my HP Pavillion for just short of two months with no issues. Last night while watching a video I noticed that the sound lowers on it's own until its almost completely mute. It doesn't matter is I put the sound full blast or not, it will gradually lower itself until I can hardly hear it. This doesn' happen with headphones, though. It is just the system's built in speakers. Advice would be appreciated.

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
