Sound is soft

Q: Sound is soft

I just tried out the media center but I noticed that when playing files the sound is soft. The media center splash screen is loud when I open the program but I have to turn the volume way up to have it play normal. When I use Media Portal which is almost the same as Media Center the volume is fine. I even tried uninstalling Media Portal just in case the codecs conflict or something. Is there a setting I have to change? I configured the audio in media center for 7.1 speakers.

Sorry I posted this in the wrong section. Mods can you move it to the Media Center section. Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The + and - sign buttons also adjust the volume in WMC... have you tried them?

My computer is making kind of a loud whistling sound, it doesn't look like I have bad caps(on my motherboard) though.

Also I hear some sort of "disc spinning" or "fan-like sound" that's loud but it's "soft" loud(like a refrigerator/freezer makes a sort of "soft" but loud sound) makes but it's not my fans. I am guessing it could be my hard drive?

Anyone know what problem I could possibly have?

So I turned on my computer today and the startup sounds would be normal but sounds for all applications would be very soft. For example when you move the volume mixer to full it would still be really soft. The only sounds that work fine is when I am watching youtube and also when I run steam as an admin because if i dont run in admin mode I am able to barely hear the sounds but it would function normally otherwise. Please help me

I use mics over Ventrilo, a teamspeak-type program for people to talk. Randomly one day people couldn't hear me; I thought it was my mic. I bought a new one on Newegg and it has the same problem. I used the 'test hardware' app on both, and found that all three mics (both ones plugged into the jack and my mic built into the laptop) can transmit sound but only when I speak really, really close to it... and even then the sound is distorted. I thought at first it was a mic jack issue but the built-in mic has the same problem which suggests otherwise.

Anyone know how I can fix it? Do I have an internal mic volume that's just set to receive only really close sounds, or is something else screwed up?

Thanks.

I sometimes hear a soft zooming sound from the pc-case. It's sort of a vibrating sound, as if the sounds is from a fan. It's usually not hard, but it keeps going on for a long time. A few times, these vibrating sounds were quite loud, for a short time. What could this sound be, and how can it be fixed? There aren't any warning messages from windows.

im trying to make a gameplay video. the sound in the video is really soft. only when the pc sound is set really high, can sound be heard in the video, but still quite soft.

so for proper recording, i want to set the sound even higher, and disconnect the loudspeakers (because it is way too loud). but can it damage any hardware parts? maybe any other recording solutions?

A:fraps: sound recording is soft

Go to control panel \ sound \ Recording

Make sure the volume levels are up high enough and test.

Do this with everything in recording that has a green check mark.

Also, bottom right of your screen, by the time, doubleclick the speaker icon.
Make sure everything is raised, not just the main volume.

I have a problem with the audio device of z61t-9441-a35. After I made a clean installation of Windows XP professional with SP3 patch, I found that the sound volume is too low. The speaker could produce the sound approximately half as lound as before, even the volume indicator in XP's volume control panel had been maximised, so as to the IBM's sound panel and the SoundMax's one. The driver I am using was downloaded from http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-62855 , which would be the lastest one. I would really appreciated if anyone can help me solving this issue.

Hi all,

I just got a 5.1 Speakers set.
Anyway, the smart guys that designed the sound card, or drivers, dont let me use all specific jack holes to hook them up.
Instead, they force me to use mic and line out holes to get Center/Woofer and front sounds.
I need headphones and mic at least as often as speakers.

Anyway, I have a splitter device that let me connect both headphones and front speakers, also mic and Center/woofer.
Where can I find a simple application that let me switch from headphones/mic mode to 5.1 speakers mode.
I can write one myself in VB if I get the right direction where to look (Windows API?).

The best solution whould be a simple sys-tray icon that give me a menu to switch from 5.1 to headphones.
That whould set Speakers setup from desktop speakers to 5.1 speakers and mic/front checkbox you can see in C-panel/Sound and Audio device.

Thanks,
Crirus

I freshly reinstalled my windows 7.
before and after the install,
when I watch videos on youtube.com (that's the only example atm),
the videos play great, flawless framerate, no matter the quality.
but they will randomly lockup. pause. only while in fullscreen.
high speed internet, videos have completed downloading, streaming speed isn't the issue.

if i press ESC to the video minimizes to a smaller display and works flawlessly,
if i press full screen again, the video continues flawlessly, untill 5 or 10 seconds later,
no specific time, they may more may not pause again.

no other system annoyances that i can recall.
i tried updating divx, although Ive never had to install those to watch youtube.

any ideas what could cause full screen video lockup?
ESC and a refullscreen instantly solves the issue, but i have to do it a few times throughout some videos.

reinstall java maybe? seems like I had to install java to watch youtube. i forget.

I just recently had a problem similar to yours, just mine was a bit more complex and have put it on the 'backburner' untill I have more time. I havent found a reason why my disk did 'fail' but dont worry, it can be recovered. Greg recommended this program to solve my solutions, Partition Wizard. This comes in many 'formats' Home version is what you want, it is free and allows you to do the tasks you will need. There is also a more advanced 'bootable' cd which can aslo be foudn on their website. By following this link to a video guide, you have lots of chances of recovering most-all of your data, only downside is that you must have a seperate hdd to copy the recovered files onto, be it your internal HDD or an external one. DONT COPY YOUR RESTORED FILES STRAIGHT BACK ONTO THE DRIVE as this may lead to permenante data loss. It is upto you if you choose the cd/normal one. Could i recommend you ask gregrocker to have a say in this thread as he knows alot in this area,

Hello,
Common complaint, I am working with Windows 7 on a Dell Optiplex 755, but teh issue is with the System Volume setting. When I go to the audio mixer and do the test and configuration, the SoundMax audio level is loud and clear. The problem is with the Windows system settings somewhere, is there a limiter or cap setting in teh registry that I can set to maximum?

I know that it is not the standard slide bars/levels but somewhere that Windows 7 Professional is cutting the volume on any Windows application. The drivers are fine, if I invoke the card directly it will blast the sound out. But in any application it is too soft.

Thanks

A:Windows 7, sound limit, audio card is loud Windows is soft

As you have a Dell, for proper operation you need to use the Dell supplied driver. I used to do a lot of support on the Dell forums and we found that non-Dell sound drivers either did not work or did not work correctly.

Here is the Dell Vista sound driver, it will also work with Windows 7 as it is just "Vista improved". It is for both the 32 bit and 64 bit OS versions. Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States]

This is a first step. If its still not working correctly after installing the driver, the next thing is what programs you are using that are "low"? If you click on the speaker icon in the notification area (lower right) you can set the system volume level.

Hi I have been infected with a few things, I believe. First off, Every once in a while, a program called Antispyware Soft appears. It tells me i'm infected and need to download software to remove certain threats. I thought i was able to remove it, but it once again reappeared after a few days. I also have a google redirect virus. Any search result i click on from google will take me to a results5.google site. I don't know if these two are related or not. I think one, or both, have something to do with the Mirar program which i cannot remove from my computer. I have AVG Free and Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes did remove some threats on the last scan, but i am still encountering the redirect virus and mirar is still there. While the antispyware soft isnt currently running, i'm sure its still on my computer.

Hello all! i am typing this topic on my wifes laptop because my desktop has a issue. I keep gettin errors that files are infected and my computer wont play them. Like my internet wont work because it says the site has viruses and what not on it which is false because its google or yahoo etc. It blocks everything i try to turn on...it blocked my AVG threat protector when i tried to run a scan and then i just keep gettin pop ups saying im infected and i need to unlock my subscription to antisoft protection program which i have no idea where that came from either cuz i use AVG. I tried that rkill program and it came up in a little black box and said it worked...The little green shield that is the icon for the antisoft protection program went away but if i restart my comp it comes back and i run rkill again and it takes the shield icon away once again but i cant use my web still but only this time i can actually open like aion online or wow or CS. (should have mentioned that b4 i couldnt even open my online games) However this problem still is a issue. Should i just wipe and go back to factory settings? And if i do wipe will i still have a workable windows vista?
Thanks for ur help in advance

Can you actually send a FAX w/PCI Soft Data Fax Modem Installed?
Can I scan a document then send it as a FAX to a land line?
I'm a newbie... and just stumbled across this feature but don't know
if/how it works
Thanks
 

A:PCI Soft Data Fax

Sounds to me as if you do atcually have a modem installed on that pc. If you would like to use it, your going to need a telephone line. I beleive windows itself has a fax utility that you could use to dial out with as well. Here is a guide to using it: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306657

Hi. I seem to have bad luck with viruses.I got home today from work and did the usual check email, check scores, etc, etc, but then my computer starting showing obviously fake messages and I knew right then I was infected. Similar to Desktop defender 2010 or whatever its calls.Anyway this one is antispyware soft, im sure you heard of it. I tried running malware bytes in safe mode, and it said it deleted it, but when I restarted I had the same problem. Anyway I tried to run a DDS log and gmer log, but since this virus shuts down basically anything that you open (including task manager) I cant do it.... any thoughts?I did some searching on the forum for other people with this problem and found that you are having them run OTL and posting the logs. I ran this in safe mode and got the logs, here they are:By the way it is really hard to copy and paste this text because this damned virus closes all of my programs so fast! anyway after prepping my fingers to move like they used to on nintendo track and field, i finally got both of them OTL logfile created on: 4/29/2010 5:09:32 PM - Run 1OTL by OldTimer - Version 3.2.3.0 Folder = C:UsersBoDownloadsWindows Vista Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1 (Version = 6.0.6001) - Type = NTWorkstationInternet Explorer (Version = 7.0.6001.18000)Locale: 00000409 | Country: United States | Language: ENU | Date Format: M/d/yyyy 3.00 Gb Total Physical Memory | 3.00 Gb Available Physical Memory | 86.00% Memory free6.00 Gb Paging File | 6.00 Gb...

It looks like this vicious thing is making the rounds. At any rate, I was hit by it 2 days ago. Before I was totally hijacked, I was able to run Malwarebytes which picked up 10 trojans and removed them. My system then became stable again. I ran Avast and it picked up 5 more trojans. I am running xp,sp3, avast av, malwarebytes, no-script and spywareblaster. I have never had such a virulent virus and really don't know for sure how I got it. I don't go to exotica on the internet and was visiting my usual sites so don't have a notion as to how. My question is, do you think this is gone or could there still be remnants of it on my pc? I have absolutely no symptoms - pc is still fast and everything loads easily. I am hesitant to use anything of a financial nature that requires password entry, i.e., Paypal. I would like to purchase the full version of MWB and Avast5 using my Paypal account but hesitate to do so at this point. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks very much.

A:antivirus soft help

Hello and welcome to TSF.

You appear to have two antivirus applications installed, i.e. AVG and Avira. While this may seem like greater protection, it can actually cause problems including slowdowns, system hangs and even crashes. Choose one to keep and uninstall the other.

Any antivirus program must be removed via add/remove program.
For any program that doesn't have an add/remove entry, you will have to do this:
re-install the program -> reboot -> uninstall

As stated in our pre-posting sticky...

Quote:




3. Uninstall the following via Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel:
" If you have more than one antivirus software installed, leave only ONE and uninstall the others.
" p2p programs like uTorrent, Bittorrent, LimeWire, Morpheus, etc., as they are a major conduit for malware and a likely source of your current issues. See this link




============================

After you've uninstalled one of the antivirus applications, run DDS again:
When done, DDS will open two (2) logs: DDS.txt
Attach.txt

Save both reports to your desktop.

============================

Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here to your desktop. It will be a randomly named executable.Before scanning, make sure all other running programs are closed and no other actions like a scheduled antivirus scan will occur while the scan is being performed. Do not use your computer for anything else during the scan.

Note:

You will likely see a message from this rogue telling you the file is infected. Ignore the message. Leave the message OPEN, do not close the message. Run rkill repeatedly until it's able to do it's job. This may take a few tries. You'll be able to tell rkill has done it's job when your desktop (explorer.exe) cycles off and then on again.

At this point, you should now be able to run analysis tools.

Once the tool has run, do NOT reboot the machine, and then try to run DDS and GMER.

If for some reason the machine reboots, repeat the process. Again, try not to restart the machine. ... Read more

I must have been half asleep to fall for such a scam, but I did... when my computer seemed to be under control of a virus attack, and I could find no way out, except to purchase the software, which I did . Once able to get on the internet and research the product, I realized I had been scammed, and just paid $69.95 for a VIRUS!! Now I need simple (I'm hoping) instructions on how to remove this beast from my computer and a suggestion on a REAL Antivirus Protection that would have caught this before I fell into their trap.

Let's try creating a boot disk that may allow me to get you going:

Using OTLPE

This file is quite large, and requires a CD/DVD burner, and a blank CD on a clean machine. A USB device would be handy as well.Download and install ISOBurner. This will allow you to burn OTLPE.ISO to a bootable CD. Here are ISO Burner Instructions

Download OTLPE.iso and burn to a CD using ISO Burner Or your own burning application). NOTE: This file is 270Mb in size so it may take some time to download.
Once the download is complete, double-click on it. This will open ISOBurner to burn the file to CD.
Reboot your affected system using the boot CD you just created.

Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps here

Your system should now display a REATOGO-X-PE desktop.
At this step, you should be able to save any data files to an external USB drive. Do so now, then continue.

Hey everybody,This is my first post here (too bad it isn't for a good reason) and I am stuck with dealing with this program. I came home last night to find my computer infected with Antivirus Soft... as it turns out my lovely wife decided to use my laptop to play around on facebook and yippie, here I am.I have read up on some forums on how to remove this but I am having a little bit of trouble. I have downloaded HJT and mbam and I have ran a scan with HJT. The information that I have says that the lines in HJT should always start with 04 and have sysguard.exe at the end of the line.
