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 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.

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.

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.

You can use MS sound recorder for that. Go to the Start > Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Sound Recorder. Before recording you need to setup your audio properties to record stereo mix. Good luck!

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.

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,

Try the following:

If you have an active internet connection, copy/paste the links below into your browser, don't click them or the rogue might redirect. If you don't have an active internet connection, download the tools from another machine, and transfer them to the affected machine via USB flash drive.


Please download and run the following tool to help allow other programs to run. (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com)
There are 4 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
Vista and Win7 users need to right click and choose Run as Admin
You only need to get one of them to run, not all of them.

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

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. The problem is that I have NO sysguard.exe on any of my lines so I am now at a loss as to where I should go from here.Here is a copy of the log:Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.4Scan saved at 10:59:23 PM, on 5/31/2010Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v8.00 (8.00.6001.18702)Boot mode: Safe mode with network supportRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXEC:\Documents and Settings\Tony\Desktop\iexplore.exe.exeC:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXEC:\Program Files\Internet Explor...

Not a big issue but....

HP Vectra VLi8 running Win2K Pro. After shut down sequence displays "it's not safe to shut down...."

How can I configure it to autoshut? Went into BIOS to look for APM options but none found.

In Power Management section of Control Panel no appropriate option in evidence.

What gives?
 

A:Soft Powerdown

I went to HP and did a dozen or more searches without getting a really good hit. However, one of the articles I saw reminded me that if your machine wants to play a sound when Windows shuts down, and the sound file itself is bad, you will get a failure like this. You can go into ControlPanel>Sounds and change the sound for Windows Exit to "none". See if that makes a difference.

OK so I got this thing a few weeks ago.

I have done a number of things including restored to an earlier date, HiJack This, MalwareBytes, Spybot and AdAware.

It seems to keep coming back. I can't figure out whether I actually get rid of it and then get it again, or if I just dont' quite get rid of it.

In addition to this, I also get new tab popups on BOTH IE AND Firefox!

Here is my HiJack this log. Hope someone can see something I am missing. This log is right after doing a full scan of Malware, Spybot and removing "ftav" references found in the HiJack this log, as well as removing any instances in the registry. (By the way, while I was writing this a tab pop up occurred.)

Any help would be greatly appreciated:

I did everything from running in safe mode to the RKill File and then dnloading the malware bytes program to delete this fake antivirus. I scanned and it found 44 infections. I removed them and then deleted them and i thought all was good and i loaded hubby's pc back up in regular mode and it still popped up. Not sure what else i can do now. I followed the tutorial.

I am getting frustrated. This is his first virus ever on there in the 5 years we've had his PC.

My daughter called the other evening, "Daddy, I need help, I have something called Antivirus Soft on my computer and I don't know what to do about it".

I did a Google search and came across the following link
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-antivirus-softClick to expand...

I walked her through all 21 steps of the uninstall guide given there-- including the download of the latest version of Malwarebytes Antimalware & downloaded the recommended "rkill.com Download Link"

The first time through she received notification of a 732 error with Malwarebytes Antimalware- while trying to update it, so we went on the Malwarebytes Antimalware forum and followed their recommendations for settings in IE8-- then it updated with no problems.

Ran the scan and found a few problems but Malwarebytes Antimalware was able to delete them (or so it said). Also, I did tell her to check each reported reference to make sure it was not in the "RESTORE" folder- as I know many infections like to hide there and re-attack once rebooted.

I then had her update and run SuperAntiSpyware free edition-- found only a few tracking cookies--- deleted them and it was late so she shut down the computer (plus some cookies needed re-boot anyway).

Next day I suggested she manually update AVG (her antivirus) and manually run a scan, as well as repeat the Malwarebytes Antimalware & SuperAntiVirus free--- and was told that the later two found the same in... Read more

Hello

I've just recently gotten this antivirus soft virus on my desktop.

It's running windows XP, and Firefox 3 is my browser.

now I was trying to follow this guide at bleepingcomputers.com
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial61.html#winxo

Now one of the first steps on the guide is to start windows in safe mode with networking. I can't seem to do this. It will start in safe mode but whenever I try to start in safe mode with networking, windows keeps telling me to activate my copy of windows.

Now I don't know what the issue with it is as I cannot do anything in normal windows to check it. ANY program I try to run in windows normally just gets shutdown by antivirus soft.

Any Ideas on how to either get me into safe mode with networking or get rid of antivirus soft without having to go through safe mode with networking?
