One speaker is SUPER soft, other working at normal volume?! Dell Pavilion dv6

Q: One speaker is SUPER soft, other working at normal volume?! Dell Pavilion dv6

Hey there,
 
I've tried all the normal things - online troubleshooting through Dell and Windows (running 64 bit Win 7 Home Premium), plus updating drivers, uninstall/reinstall device, checking through media software settings (VLC, iTunes) - and cannot seem to figure out why my LEFT speaker is playing at what sounds like 10-20%, versus the RIGHT one playing at 100%. No major update or change predated this issue. Simple Windows Update stuff, but I purposely don't let Windows touch my "manufacter" drivers etc.
 
Anyone with a clue as to what else I can try?
 
THANKS!

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.)

Hello everyone,

I have a question, although this is my first time on these forums so I'm not sure if this is exactly the right spot to post it. My apologies in advanced.

I'm very frustrated. I have an .mp3 file that plays perfectly normal on some computers (including my home computer), but on other computers (like my office computer), the .mp3 plays extremely low, almost inaudible. All other audio files play fine on my office computer, but for some reason not this particular .mp3. I can't seem to find any reason why, so I figured I'd post hear as a last resort.

Thanks everyone.

A:MP3 plays super soft on certain computers, perfectly normal on others

The file could simply have a low audio level. Aside from that, it could be the wav volume in the audio setup. And of course the master volume, but most players can adjust the master volume.

I recently discovered a difference in the volume; the left speaker of the laptop has been functioning normally while there seems to be very low to no sound coming from the right speaker.

Any suggestions?

A:Dell Inspiron 15 5559 Audio - Right Speaker has low volume while the left speaker functions normally

Hello.You didn't mention the headphone jack, so if you have not yet done so, plug in headphones and see if the balance is okay in them. If the headphones check out okay, then most probably it's a problem related to the speakers.
The test for speakers is the ePSA audio test. It is a hardware test, which means that if the test  tones are very low in the right speaker, but normal in the left speaker, then there is hardware failure somewhere, related to the right speaker.
If both speakers sound normal during the test, then the problem is in the software. Do the usual things like re-install the audio driver, check the balance levels in the Sound properties, try different audio sources, etc.
Re-installing the audio driver resets the settings to their default configurations, so if you do it then you don't have to bother with things like volumes and balance settings, because they will be okay.(Also if the balance is okay through headphones, then it should be okay through the speakers too.)
Here is how to do a simple driver re-install:
1.    Open the Device Manager.2.    Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" category.3.    Right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".4.    Click "uninstall".5.    Do not check the box to “delete the driver software for this device”. 6.    Restart the computer.

Hi, I have a pair of old Yamaha speakers and an SB Live Value sound card and I'm running XP. The speakers have a volume control and a headphone jack on them. Up until recently they were working fine but then my children were playing around on the PC and now neither the volume control on the speaker nor the headphone jack works (if I plug in the headphones the sound continues to be played through the speakers).

I've searched through the archives but haven't spotted anyone who has had a similar problem and since I've been banging my head against the wall for a couple of weeks I'd really appreciate some help.
 

A:Speaker volume control not working

If I read your post correctly, you are still getting sound from the speakers, right? It kind of sounds like the speaker controls and the headphone jack have been damaged somehow. Do you have another set of speakers you can test with or another PC to try these speakers on?

Hello Jimco,
I have a Dell 5548 with a 1080p touch screen, Core i5 &12GB of Ram. After updating to windows 10 I have had a number of issues with this laptop.
1)The most annoying of all is that the speaker volume fluctuates from high to low at any given setting which is extremely frustrating. One time its loud then all of a sudden it reduces then a few seconds later its up again. Is this a hardware issue or a software issue as this didn't happen on windows 8.1?
2)The Headphone Jack is too tight. If I try too insert any earphones or headphones it will go in to a certain degree then i have to apply force but it still wont go in. If i try to apply more force it seems that it will break as there is a creaking sound. sound from the speakers isn't fine and i cant even use earphones :(
3) My laptop has a real sense camera and it just stops using its infrared sensors or depth sensors when setting up windows hello. It tells me to place my face in the centre of the screen and then no response even though i can see what the webcam is showing me. 
I hope you can answer my questions as it would be much appreciated.
Thanks!

So I have a Blue Yeti, and I'm an online animator/voice actor. Whenever I record audio on my Blue Yeti (OR any other mic) I record about 4-6 inches from the mic, and turn the gain down enough that the audio doesn't peak as I yell or whatever. This is what you're supposed to do if you don't want your audio levels peaking and making your recording sound horrible and corrupted. However, afterwards, it means I have really quite recordings. Not a problem right? Now that it's recorded right, I can boost the volume of the entire clip afterwards right? WRONG. I'm not an audio expert so I must be missing something. But why in GODS NAME would the audio distort and peak AFTER it's recorded successfully? It's all there, it's all clean audio. If I turn the volume on my speakers all the way up it sounds CRYSTAL CLEAR! All I want to do is do that INSIDE the computer so that when I upload it to youtube people don't have to turn their speakers so far up. But if I increase the clips volume in the computer, it distorts! It sounds awful! Why?! I tried in Sony Acid and Audacity and they both do the same thing! Why?! I seriously don't understand what I'm missing here! I can take sound effects, and recordings made by other producers and crank them up nice and loud, but mine just fall apart! If anyone understands audio stuff, please tell me what I'm doing wrong.

A:Soft Recording volume with Blue Yeti, increasing volume distorts audio

I have a home recording studio using Sonar X1 software.

I don't know about Acid, but it should allow clean recordings. Audacity the same way.

I record, generally, in the -10 level with my recording program, at 24 bits/44.1 Khz. At -10, I have plenty of headroom and can then adjust the levels after the recordings and at mixdown. I export the mix as a standard 16 bit/44.1Khz wav file and then "finalize" whatever I want to do to the song, including levels, with "Goldwave" (an audio editior).

I assume you are converting the audio to MP3? If that is the case, that may be where the distortion is occuring? I find that 128Kb MP3's are very poor and at a minimum use 198 Kb MP3's.

Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally Sound. In the Sound Playback panel, make sure your speakers are set as the default playback device.

If that is OK, go to the Device Manager and RIGHT click to highlight the entry for the Sound device and then LEFT click "Uninstall" (DO NOT check the block to uninstall the drivers). Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect the sound and reinstall it. This fixes a lot of flakey problems.

Hi, I recently completely cleared my laptop and re-installed Windows 7 due to a virus. I am having issues with my brightness and volume control buttons on the keyboard. The brightness buttons do not work at all and there is no option to adjust the brightness via the power options either. My laptop is stuck on the highest setting. The volume buttons seem to adjust the volume appropriately, but the icon that typically appears in the middle of my screen when I do so is not there (the grey volume icon that appears when you use the f9 and f10 buttons and fades away shortly after). Additionally,the mute botton also seems to work but the red light on the f11 key does not respond accordingly, I only know it works from the volume icon on my taskbar.  I had some help from Paul Tikkanen in downloading several missing drivers for various other issues so I'm wondering if this is also a poblem that can be solved with a similar download? If not, is anyone able to suggest other solutions?  Thank you, Kristen

Hello. A speaker that doesn't work after restoring with the Factory Image is because of hardware failure, either a loose connection or dead speaker.
If you want to perform another test to make sure, run the audio test in the ePSA utility (or PSA on some models). These tests are in motherboard memory and do not depend on Winows or drivers -- in other words it is a purely hardware test, so if you don't hear the sounds during the test, it means hardware failure.

Hello Dell community!
Yesterday I did a motherboard swap in my E6420 from the Intel HD board to the Nvidia board.
Everything seems to be working fine, except the internal speakers won't work in the OS.
I booted into the built in diagnostics, tested the audio, and it played the tones of audio through the speakers.
I have a suspicion that because I did the Motherboard swap, I can no longer use the old IO board due to it being a different size, the audio device may be on that as it has the headphone jack.
Also, I know it uses a different sound device, but the HDMI audio works just fine.
Any help would be appreciated!

Well, I've had it for a couple of years now, and for the past year (I know, I'm a bit slack on it) the Rear speaker has not been working. This all started when I reformatted the PC, and switched it back to Windows XP. I currently have it back at Vista at the OEM operating specs. Not really sure what it is, when I check under the "Configure" button, it only lets me select Speaker (2-channel stuff).

Now the awkward thing is, the Subwoofer works underneath the computer when I have Windows Media Player open, even though it's not recognized. As does the Center Speaker underneath the Monitor.

So my question is, why does the Rear Speaker not work, and is there any way I can fix it? I push Connect on the back of it, and everything. (Note: It's the wireless one, so I'm praying it's not a faulty equipment problem)

I've got a Sigmatel Driver on the thing, some C++ Major Audio blah blah nonsense, and I believe that could be the cause, because they installed some other driver I'm almost certain than this PoS =/.

Any help would be appreciated, and I would really like to thank you guys for having this forum around ^-^.

I have had a 5.1 speaker arrangement on my Vista x64 PC for some time. Today, the front left speaker decided to stop working correctly. When trying to plug my headphones in to a rear jack on my motherboard (onboard sound), I noticed that sound was only coming through the right earphone. I decided to give up with trying to listen through my headphones for the time being and plugged my speakers back in, only to find that now my front left speaker wasn't working correctly. I tried to adjust the balance on my speakers, as I thought I could hear a whisper of a sound through the front left.
The front left speaker is producing sound, but at a greatly reduced volume to the rest of the speakers, I have to set the balance to the following to make FL and FR speakers 'the same' volume (by ear).
FL volume: 100
FR volume: 0
I have my speakers plugged in to 3 jacks on my motherboard (out of 6).
The green jack for FL and FR.The black jack for RL and RR.The orange jack for C and SubW.I have been unsucessful installing Realtek (which is a shame, because on my last motherboard I was able to solve the problem with that somehow, but I can't remember how) as it states the drivers are not supported. Which I'm assuming means my motherboard doesn't support it.
My motherboard is an MSI Intel p35 Neo.
I have had this setup working fine for around a month.My speakers are labtec (but I don't see how that would matter).I am currently using the normal drivers that come with Vista.Any ideas?

I'm not sure what measures you've taken in trying to natively adjust the sound (like in this video: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Adjust-the-sound-level-on-your-computer). I find that more times than not, you can usually right click the sound icon and select "open sound mixer" and adjust the sound to your liking from there.

I have only recently upgraded to Vista from XP, I'm very pleased with everything apart from this sound problem, which from what I've read is very common. I was hoping to watch movies on my new widescreen monitor, but the sound is just not loud enough with all settings on max.

The problem I'm having is that my speaker volume is very low, I'm using fairly old speakers, but these speakers were very loud on my old computer running XP.

Anyway I've installed the latest Realtek driver & it has made no difference what so ever. Every setting is set to max volume, does anyone know how I can boost the volume? Or maybe someone else has had this problem & found a solution, I'm wondering if new speakers will make any difference?

The only sure-fire solution I think of so far is installing XP, which would mean losing Vista, as I've not got a disc with it on, the computer came with it loaded already.

The right (volume control) speaker has lost about 80% of its volume. If you hold it to your ear, you can hear that it has sound. Left speaker is fine.

I purchased a set of new speakers - no good.
I ran OEM Sound Diagnostics - no good.
I have run every audio test and made every volume adjustment that I can find to make.

Is it the sound card?

Just got a "new" used computer tower. It's a Compaq Presario Deskpro...Anyway, when I try to listen to CDs or the radio on the internet, the volume is SO LOW! I have the volumes maxed out. I've read some of the other posts regarding this and tried some of the suggestions to no avail. Are some speakers not compatible w/certain computers? Help! Amy

I just put together my gf's new Compaq computer. She has an AMD chip and is running XP Home. Realtec AC97 on board sound. Polk Audio speakers with no volume adjust on the speaker, controlled by computer. Problem is the sound will only go up so far, which isn't very loud at all. Speakers worked fine on her previous computer. They are configured correctly. Any clue as to why this would occur? Thank you for any insight.

Hello everyone,
I have recently noticed that my speaker volume is going up and down by itself. It happens when i'm listening to music, playing games, everything. I have a kt3 ultra mobo, with onboard Avance AC'97 audio 5.1 surround sound speakers. I've played around with my audio options when i noticed the problem and can't figure out what is going on. Please give me some advice.

Thanks

Any batteries involved in your audio loop? Replace.

Any volume controls on your keyboard? Try disabling keyboard audio control.

Any Windows utilities running that control audio? Running in the System Tray, and check Task Manager. Close any extra audio-related apps.

Otherwise, it could just be your speakers, or sound card amp, going out.

After the most recent Windows 10 update, my speaker volume has decreased substantially. The change in volume pre- to post-update is very evident. I use my speakers very often so I would like to fix this problem as soon as possible.  Thanks

Hi: The latest W10 update messed up the audio in almost every one of my HP business desktops and notebook PC's. I had to reinstall the audio drivers to get everything to work right. Two of my PC's do not have W10 audio driver support. For my HP 350 business notebook, I had to reinstall the W8.1 IDT audio driver, which restored normalcy. For my HP dc7800 business desktop, I had to reinstall the W7 Soundmax audio driver, which restored normalcy. Your notebook does not have W10 audio drivers either. So, here are two recommendations for drivers I have... First, create a system restore point in case these drivers make a bad situation worse, and then you can revert to your current status. Then reinstall the W8.1 audio driver from your notebook's support page and restart the PC This package contains the driver that enables the IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp59501-60000/sp59654.exe If that doesn't fix the problem, try this IDT audio driver from a newer model notebook (15t-j100) that has the Beats Audio. Install and restart the PC. This package contains the driver that enables the IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. 6.10.6491.0 Rev.     Sep 30, 2013 http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp63501-64000/sp63555.exe

Good morning

I am having problems with my computer & speaker volume. It started since family members plugged I-pods in to listen. I have checked all areas on my computer (that I'm aware of) to make sure that all volume is turned up. My actual computer volume is very low also. I have not tried to plug different speakers in though

Can anyone please help?

Thanks...Deb

Well...try different speakers first, to eliminate that possibility.

I just connected my speakers.

I'm able to hear sound but it's very low (even when I turned the dial on the speaker clockwise to highest setting)

I haven't a clue what to do.

In CONTROL PANEL:
Sounds & Audio Devices tab -
I set speaker volume to highest setting - yet it still sounds low.

Hey, recently i was palying my music pretty loud with a few friends over and the volume spider on the speakers broke. as in they're always on the top now, i can turn down the pc volume to 0 and still hear static buzzing. its really getting anoying, i thought i could deal with it and jsut turn the volume on my pc down but its getting to the point where its crackling and making lo screeching noises. is there an application thats able to change the volume on the speakers themselves and not the pc?

Speakers are very fragile. The failure rate is very high when they are over-driven. The only real fix is to replace the speakers, and perhaps the audio card as well.

Using a program to restore LP's and burn to CD's. Noticed that the right speaker has little volume. checked all the cables which are ok. also burned a couple of the restored songs and played them successfully on an audio cd player - good volume on both speakers.

Have installed and uninstalled the most recent drivers for the audio card.

After all of this when Settings, Control panel, Sounds, Configure, Test is checked, sound is ok from left speaker but greatly muted from right.

Any ideas would be great.

Thanx.

when i restart my computer the sound icon on the taskbar is missing, yet when i go to the control panel and select the sound it is checked. it says place volume icon in the taskbar. If I uncheck it and then click apply and check it again and click apply it comes back. I am not hiding any icons on the taskbar. This is a new computer only a few weeks old.
What could be the trip?
