Using the laptop on battery, when I press on F11-12, the brightness meter is shown on the upper left like usual, but it won't move up or down.  Yet I think it's strange that all other places I can adjust brightness are fine, and especially strange that everything is working totally fine on AC power.
I tried uninstalling the Generic PnP monitor and reinstalling, but to no results.  Also, both my power settings on battery and on power indicate no adaptive brightness.

So I installed some new Windows updates today (whatever was available via Windows Update). I restarted my computer to enable the updates. When it came back on, my task bar was white for some reason. I solved that problem using the first solution I found here: [SOLVED] Taskbar is white

Well I didn't change my volume before doing that, so I don't know if it worked before I followed that solution. I do know that after following that solution, my volume meter no longer shows up when I change the volume via the keys for it on my keyboard. This is pretty annoying because it was convenient to always see my audio level when I adjusted the volume.

I am on a HP Pavilion dv7-6c95dx with beats audio, running Windows 7 64-bit. When I changed my volume, the beats audio logo with a volume meter under it would pop up, but it no longer shows up. I haven't noticed any change in the quality of my sound, and I can still actually adjust the volume level. The problem is the volume meter no longer displays to show me the volume level.

If anyone has any clue as to why this happened, that would be great!

Try rolling back any keyboard driver updates, or go to the keyboard manufacturers website and download most up to date driver(s) from there.

Hi everyone,I had the hard drive replaced recently in my G580 (Windows7) and everything is perfect except this one thing. I use the Volume: FN/down and FN/up a lot. It's very awkward that I can't see the volume setting any more. I know I can use the volume control in the tray but that is too slow to use in a live muic situation.btw the Fn/brightness also works but doesn't show the settings.Is this a setting that has gone awry that I can easily change?I've seen posts about the FN not working at all but nothing about it owrking but just not being visible.Thanks for any help.

(Windows XP Home) When I attempt to adjust the volume using the slider on the Volume tab of the Sounds and Audio Devices section of the control panel, the volume gets louder as I drag the slider over, and then (without even releasing the mouse button), the volume automatically decreases as the slider moves to it's lowest position. It's as if the volume is pegged "low" elsewhere in the system, and the slider must reflect that value despite my trying to adjust it. TIA for any assistance.

I don't know how it happened, but recently, the sound has gotten all screwed up. It seems to be set to an unbearably low volume at maximum. I can hear the asterisk system sound, but the others must be too quiet to hear. I can hear my MP3s and some other sound files, but they are so soft I can't hear them well at all. even when WinAmp is set to 100% volume. Turning the knob on my speakers has no effect at all.

I can hear sounds online (such as the Crazy Frog movie: http://dd0s.org/~wooolf/crazyfrog/ ), but the volume is rather quiet.

Using the Volume Control, I find that nothing is muted, and everything is at maximum. I can lower the volume to make it even quieter, but I can't make it louder (since it's at maximum).

I am currently using NVIDIA nForce drivers (the most recent ones)...in fact, I just installed these new ones, hoping it would fix my problem, to no avail.

you may need to reinstall your sound card drivers
go to control panel, then Sounds and Audio devices
click on the Audio tab
and under Sound Playback, see if there's anything listed there
if not, chances are you need to reinstall those drivers

Hey guys,

I posted this earlier in the Multimedia thread but was told to post it here.

I have been having trouble with my sound this past week. Is stays at 100%. I try to slide my volume, but it quickly goes back to 100%. I don't know what the problem is. I have ran dxdiag and it says there are no problems found. My speakers are Conexant High Definition SmartAudio. I have tried pretty much everything: googling it, but no answers there.

I do believe my roommate has something to do with it. He went to high school for technology, and after a dispute over my music being too loud he said he would start to control my volume. Some time during the week, I had found my computer had mysteriously restarted. So this has led me to believe that he has installed a program, which allows him to control my volume. I want to make sure he's doing this, so he can face the consequences. I just need your help. Is there something installed in my computer? What can I do to get rid of it?

There's also another strange thing that occurred. After posting this in the Multimedia thread, my volume somehow became adjustable again. Weird. I now have a feeling he can see what I do on my computer, and realized I posted this? I am so confused. I just would like answers.

Thanks so much beforehand. My operating system is Windows Vista and I have an HP Notebook PC, if that helps.

This may be an HP problem. I'm not sure. When I open the speaker settings, the display shows the volume set at 100%, yet, I can barely hear the soundtrack of a DVD I am watching just inches away. I have tried using the sliding volume at the top of the keyboard as well as the volume control in the media player, which will only increase volume to 50% in Windows Media Player. Still too low for me. I can lower (from 50%) or mute the volume- just not increase it. Has anyone else had this problem? I would love to know how to fix this. Thanks!

A:Can't Adjust Volume on HP dv6985se- Too Low

Did you right-click on the audio settings. The master volume may be maxed but all the other volumes lowered (this has happened to me before). If that's not the case, use the device manager to uninstall the speakers and then reboot (the speaker should reinstall)

Right Click on the volume speaker icon on the bottom right hand side on the desktop..
Select Playback devices
Then right click on your headphone icon
Select properties
Go to the levels tab and set the volume as per your wish.
Click Apply / Ok

Now unplug the headphone and plug it back in and check if this helps. Awaiting for your response.

I'm running Windows XP Professional with Realtek HD Audio. In my Master Volume mixer when I go to "Options" and then "Properties" Realtek HD Audio Output is selected as the Mixer device and "Playback" is ticked. "Recording" is shaded. When I bring the volume adjusters up there's all the sliders and under each slider is a box marked "Mute". If I change the Mixer device to Realtek HD Audio input "Recording" is ticked and "Playback" is shaded. When I bring up the volume adjusters for recording there's the sliders, each with a box marked "Mute" underneath, except all of the sliders, except "Recording" are shaded out. "CD Volume" "Mic Volume" "Line Volume" and "Stereo Mix" are all shaded.

In Realtek's Mixer those devices don't even HAVE sliders.

A:Not Able to Adjust Volume Levels in Mixer.

I'm not following you entirely, but have you tried (R) clicking on the "mute box" selection when it appears? Does the speaker icon in the task bar have a red "X" on it? Have you gone to "system" in the control panel...than selected 'hardware' to get a look at 'device manager' and what see what it's saying? On your sound mixer click on everything that has a red "x" on it. I'm not meaning to oversimplify, but I think you will discover an easy way out of this problem once you know how to handle the Window mixer console.

This has been annoying me for quite some time now.. Whenever I plug in headphone to my Lenovo Yoga 500-14IBD, the Realtek Audio Manager does pop-up an annoying message that I connected headphones, but it does not adjust the volume accordingly. It's slowly driving me insane that I cannot find a solution to it. To my knowledge it has been default since a few years that laptops recognise and memorise different volumes for the headphone-jack or the internal speakers. I have found several topics on this, dating back to 2013 already even (like here), where this was possible with a single click in the Realtek Audio Manager. But then, years later, in this topic of 2018 it seems it is not possible anymore? I cannot find any of the suggested settings in the Realtek Audio Manager, nor in the Sound or Device settings. Under "Device advanced settings" I do have an option to separate the inputs as different devices, indicating to me that it is possible for the outputs as well! Does anyone know how to solve this once and for all?

Hi everybody,

My problem is that I cannot adjust the volume of video clips 'normally' when using Media Player Classic. Whenever I use this program, it does not allow me to increase/decrease the volume on my default volume scale, instead, it uses a built-in volume scale and therefore forces me to use that stupid scale.

How can I disable this annoying feature of Media Player Classic so that I can adjust the volume as normally as when I use other programs.

Thanks in advance!

Somehow the file sndvol32.exe got deleted and I can no longer adjust the sound volume for anything but my speakers. This probably happened when I was trying to troubleshoot a weird echoing sound that I got when playing World of Warcraft. Now, I can't update, or even install any of my new sound drivers for Soundblaster Live! Value (PCI card) or Realtek'97 (onboard soundcard). I can't reinstall, update or repair windows due to some error that says something occured and it shutdown setup to protect my computer. Awesome.

Details:
When I try to unistall my SB LIVE drivers and use my onboard soundcard, windows starts automatically reinstalling the SBL drivers anyways. The only issue I run into using my onboard soundcard drivers is that I can't adjust sound volume for anything other than my speakers because it's missing sndvol32.exe.

Trying to update SBL is like going to hell and back. I let windows do its thing and install the drivers it currently has in my drive, then when I try to update from Creative's website, I get an error that their creative playcenter could not be found.

A:sndvol32.exe missing -- Can't adjust volume + can't update drivers

Hi Sebboh, Have You Tried Searching For The File??

...in other locations on your computer?? If you have an "I386" folder on your "C" drive, open the "I386" folder. There should be a "Sndvol32.exe" file that is backed up there.. You should be able copy and paste the Sndvol32.exe file from there to the C\Windows\System32 folder where it belongs.

If that doesn't work Try System Restore ...

or find a Windows XP CD, or find somebody with a working Windows XP and a diskette or USB drive to copy the file.

I have been searching different forums where the speaker icon has disappeared from the notification area of the task bar, but have not found a solution to the particular problem I am experiencing. In my case the speaker icon is still visible but when I click on it, I no longer get the vertical bar which allows me to adjust the volume. I have made no recent changes to my computer and cannot understand why this has suddenly happened. I have gone to taskbar properties and tried turning the volume icon on and off but this has not cured the problem.

I have discovered the problem I am experiencing is limited to my user account only. I have one other named account and a guest account. The other user is able to adjust the volume from the speaker icon on the notification bar, and when I log into the guest account I find it is also working perfectly. However, when I log into my user acount it does not work. I have also tried adjusting the volume by going into Control Panel - Hardware and Sound - Sound - Adjust system volume but when I click on it nothing happens. However, when I go into the guest account I find I can adjust the volume from both the icon on the notification bar and by going through the Control Panel method.

I therefore suspect that my user account may have been corrupted in some way. I should stress that my problem is limited to my inability to adjust the volume in my user account. I do have sound, I just am unable to control it!

This problem has started in recent weeks (yes, too far back to do System Restore):

When I reboot, if I click on the speaker icon in the Notification Area, it tells me that Windows Audio is not running (and so no media app will produce any sound). However, if I then raise or lower the volume via my multimedia keyboard, Windows Audio starts running.

This is despite the fact that in Services, the Startup Type of Windows Audio is Automatic. So why doesn't it start on reboot?

A:Windows Audio Service doesn't start until I adjust volume

Does Event Viewer have entries related to that service?

For the life of me I cannot solve this problem. Here are my setup details;

Win 7 32bit
Realtek ALC889A
Media Player = Windows Media Center(player) and Total Media Theater
Latest Realtek HD driver r.239
Movies copied as .vob no conversion straight copy
Yamaha Receiver connect to PC via SPDIF

The problem is that anytime I play a movie with 5.1 all the sounds
perform perfectly except for the vocals. The vocals are barely audible.
The receiver is picking up 5.1 and playing it through all speakers properly.
It was working fine for about a month and then a few weeks ago it just stop playing correctly.

I have tried changing every setting possible in the sound card properties and
realteks HD manager. I have uninstalled the realtek driver and let the MS default HD driver install but ended up with the same issue. I have also reverted back to an older Realtek driver but still no solution. I have had Shark007 codecs installed (to play some other .mkvs ) but even after removing the codecs I still have a low voice volume issue.

Maybe I'm missing something simple but any help would be appreciated. I have been working on this for weeks!

Does anyone have any idea on how to correct a problem I am having with my deaCentre A520? All of the sudden I can no longer use the touch buttons on the bottom of the screen. They light up when touched - HDMI, brightness, volume, etc - but they no longer work. I have been running Windows 10 for sometime now - I doubt it is a software issue with MS. Any idea on how to correct this issue? I can use the touch screen just fine - just not the control buttons on the bottom of the screen. Thanks.

I recently had to use the factory provided rescue disk to get my laptop working again. Now that it's back up everything works fine, but I don't have any sound. I can burn a CD and play it on my stereo, but not on the laptop. I checked the device manager and it has a yellow triangle next to the "Multimedia Audio Controller". It indicates that there is no driver present for that device. I checked with Gateway and Microsoft and they both have drivers which are supposed to work but are either already on my computer or don't work. What do I do now?

Hello, I have a windows 8 Toshiba laptop and my volume keys seems to be out of place. When I press the F10 volume key it brings up File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, Help options when using Internet Explorer. I tried searching Function Keys on my Start panel and my volume button starts working only until I reset my laptop, the options goes back to the same problem. How can I fix this?

I recently finished cleaning my laptop of malware with help of someone in the Malware/etc forum, and shortly afterwards while trying to use Function + left and right arrow keys to change the volume of my laptop, I noticed that the volume only goes up or down by 2 at a time when the button combination is used, rather than beforehand when it used to go up or down by 10 at a time. 
 
How can I fix this problem?

I recently updated to windows 8.1on my pavilion laptop (was forced to actualy) and since am having a lot of problems. The one that's driving me nuts currently is that my volume buttons and other function buttons are intermitantly not working. any advice would be much apreciated.
 

A:windows 8.1 function and volume buttons

 Try running SFC.  From the Search charm type CMD, then right-click CMD.EXE and click Run as administrator.  From the command prompt type sfc /scannow.  If that doesn't fix it, download, install, and get Malwarebytes up to date, then do a scan with it.
 
Good luck.
