Volume from speakers lowering on it's own

Q: Volume from speakers lowering on it's own

Volume starts decreasing on its own while watching a video or anything, when I pause the video and play it the volume increases and again starts decreasing. Works alright with headphones though. I already experinced one such problem in the past where you guys asked me to uninstall some software and asked me to install some other. Please help.

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

Hello everyone! I run Windows 8.1, and have been having a strange issue lately. A reformat and fresh install did nothing to help this.

Seemingly at random, in my volume mixer, specific programs will drop to 10% level. If I turn the volume all the way back up, it'll only go back down a bit later. I've tried this with / without my realtek drivers. Also, I've set the option under "Communications" in playback devices to "Do nothing", and this still hasn't helped. Any VoIP programs I use I've turned off ducking, and yet the problem still persists.

Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you!

I have a pavilion x360 that the sound will not work on. In fact you cannot unmute the speakers, every time you do the volume level just lowers itself until the sound is muted. I had Windows 8.1 on it so I thought I would do the Windows 10 upgrade and see if that helped. Nope, same thing. I downloaded the latest realtec drivers from HP's website and uninstalled the old drivers first and still nothing. I tried disabling the realtec card and just use the PC speakers option and it worked one time but after a reboot it went right back to muting the sound again. I wonder if anyone else has had this issue and if anyone has found a cure or at least a work around?

How do I stop volume of background applications from lowering when I play a game?

Whenever I start a skype call or want to play a game with voice chat, the volume of background applications instantly drops by a significant amount. This is annoying because I want to listen to music while I game and it's just not possible like this.

A quick Google search suggests that this is a common Windows 7 "feature":

audio - Windows 7 lowers applications' volume automatically - Super User

I have applied the fix suggested in the article (Change settings to "do Nothing" when Windows detects communication activity) but this did not work. Any ideas why? I am running a Thinkpad T530 laptop and I have a Realtek sound card.

A:How to stop volume of background applications from lowering...

Since you have already changed your sound setting to "do nothing" open up Skype and disable both settings in Skype under tools->sound settings, that says "let Skype configure your microphone" & "automaticly change speaker settings" to my knowledge that should work

Hello everyone,

First of all, this is my first post on the Windows 8 forums, I've had this laptop for 3 weeks now and for the most part, I'm starting to get used to 8.1. However, there are still a few problems that make me feel terribly powerless.

For one, whenever I plug in my headphones, the sound neatly comes out of them. However, I want to be able to put some of the sound on the headphones and some on the speakers. This is not possible, for the simple reason that the system does not recognize my headphones. It still tells me I am using speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio), while I have headphones plugged in and sound coming through them. Is there anything I can do about this? (I tried updating some drivers, they were apparently all up to date...)

An even worse problem is the following. Whenever my computer detects a communications device, it cuts the volume of all other applications to 20%. Now, before someone comes with the obvious 'Control Panel -> Sound -> Communications -> 'Do nothing' -> apply -> fixed', I already did this and still it happens. It happens with Skype, but it also happens with games I play and it even happens when I just go to 'Recording Devices'. Anytime the computer realises my microphone is being used, it lowers my sound, and I do not know what to do about it. Is there anyone who can help me with this?

Thanks in advance for either problem,
Mithra

A:Lowering sound volume and detecting headphone problems!

First, to have both the headphones and speaker at the same time. Many RealTek HD Audio Manager panels (found in Control Panel/Hardware and Sound) have an option to either mute the speakers or not mute them when a headset is plugged in. This is found in the "Device Advanced Settings", if your PC Vendor included this. If you do not have this option, you may be out of luck as some PC vendors have customized sound configurations.



Not showing the headphones, is not an issue since it is working properly.

Third, reducing volume may be a function of some running software application, such as Skype, or games and not a "problem" with the PC. However, one issue in the Recording section, normally the "Stereo Mix" is set as the default recording device, rather than an individual device, such as a microphone. In addition, you need Stereo Mix if you ever want to record audio from the internet. If the Stereo Mix is not set as default recording device, and it is shown enable it and make it the default. If it is not shown (and many PC vendors initially have it hid), RIGHT click in a blank area in the Recording Panel and then click to show "disabled" and "disconnected" devices. Stereo Mix should now show and you can enable it. This may or may not resolve the low volume.

I am having what appears to be two major issues with my Windows XP 32-bit machine which seem to be related in some way. After having the computer booted in normal mode for several minutes or longer, often times some programs will not load. I check in Task Manager and it shows that the program is running but no GUI comes up for the program. This has happened with Internet Explorer, Raidcall, Skype, Windows Volume Control, and possibly other programs I can't think of at the moment. When I was having the issue with opening IE, I was still able to work in Firefox and Chrome. However, I tried using Windows Live Outlook Webmail (live.com e-mail) to send an e-mail message and the new window popped up but would not display anything in it (it had the loading icon continuously but did not load). I tried it both through Chrome and Firefox.

Also, often times my windows wave volume bar is getting set to the lowest setting. It seems to occur when going into a game or opening another program. I have to go into the volume control and bring it back up to hear any sound. It happens very frequently and I'm unsure what may be causing the issue. The two issues seem to be related because they began occurring at about the same time.

Basically when I listen to music through foobar2000, winamp, any audio player, windows sort of regulates my volume if any other program makes a sound. System sound rings? Music volume lowers. Watching a video on youtube or any other service, music volume lowers, playing a game? Music lowers.

This problem has persisted through 2 entirely new computers, the only thing remaining consistent is my AV receiver. 2 different brand video cards as well (monitor is hooked into receiver hdmi out, and then video card goes into receiver hdmi input) so both AMD and Nvidia have done this to me so far. I don't recalled if this was an issue before the receiver, it's been way too long.

It was also like this in W7 and now W10.

I find it weird that this isn't a problem when I use headphones. Only my receiver. I've never had this happen with any other component though (blu ray player, ps4, xbox1 , 360, etc). I've also listened to music on those devices and played a game or w/e and it doesn't happen.

It really seems like a windows issue or driver problem, I don't understand how it can't be fixed.

Usually these are the go to things -

The BenQ is the monitor connecting to the receiver, other is my headset.
So I figured I'd ask for help here, there's entire articles dedicated to selecting "Do Nothing" in the Sound Communications tab to stop this problem. Getting tired of reading them.

Thanks!

A:Low Volume through Laptop Speakers

It could be a heat issue causing a component to work intermittently. Often times in electronics something will work when it's cool but stop working when it warms up or will not work when it's cool but then start working when it warms up. These can be some of the hardest problems to diagnose. It's not necessarily overheating, just normal temps causing things to expand and contract. It could be caused by a poor solder joint.If your drivers are good then it could be a hardware issue such as what I described above. If that's the case the fix is to replace the motherboard. Is the laptop still under warranty? If so, you would contact HP about it.

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.

Good day,

I'm using a fairly new HP Mini netbook and ever since I got it I have this problem of low volume in plugged in headphones and speakers. The netbook speakers themselves are pretty fantastic, but if I plug in headphones or speakers, it seems that the computer lowers the volume substantially to the point that I can't even use speakers for listening to music or watching movies (on full blast, you might be able to make out speech on a film for example, but not from very far away; that's how low the volume is).

I've gone through everything I can think of, checked all the various levels in the volume mixer and audio hardware options, made sure everything is to the max, re-installed my IDT High Definition Audio CODEC driver, all with no results. I also have tried out the speakers both with the Loudness Equalization feature enabled and disabled with no noticeable effects. I've also tested the computer with different sets of headphones/speakers and so it must be some properties of the computer that are the issue here.

I appreciate your help.

H,mmm did you check the volume control on both the speakers and in the software? One or the other could be set to minimum. Cycle the volume control pot full down to full up on the speaker, maybe a dead spot in the pot. It can happen. Also you might have it full down and you think it is full up. Turn speakers On / Off. Remove and replug the speaker jack in the computer, making sure it is fully seated. Try a different software program to play via the speakers.

If all else fails try a second pair of speakers. That will allow you to isolate the problem to the speakers or in the computer.

Hi, I bought a new headset today, identical to that of my sister, which is very loud ( in a good way). So, when I plugged the set to my speakers I was disappointed because it was lower than that of my sister's. But then I thought to plug it to front green panel of the unit and boom!!! the sound was crystal-clear as my sister's. The question is: why that happens and how can receive the same amount of volume from both inputs?

A:My headset has low volume when plugged in speakers

If you plug it into a jack on the speakers, the speaker system determines the volume. When you plug it into the headphone jack on the PC the sound chip and system volume control determine the volume.

The Impedance of the headset can also affect volume level.

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 have tried uninstalling/re-installing the USB drivers for the Ham... Read more

The Polk Hamden speakers are Bluetooth connected speakers. Thus Bluetooth connectivity is one issue.

Hi! I have external Altec Lansing speakers that I use to connect to my iPhone and laptop to listen to music. When I first got the speakers, they worked fine and there was no problem. I've only used them a couple times. Now, they are fine when they are at a very low volume, but when I turn the volume up they start a high "screeching" sound, and as I turn the volume louder, the sound gets lower in tone and louder. I can turn the volume up loud enough to eliminate the sound, but then the speakers are really loud. The sound is VERY loud. This happens no matter if I have a device connected to the speakers or not. Can anyone help? These were expensive speakers, and I'd like to use them longer! Thanks!

Hi, I`ve updated my t440p to windows 10. And one of the many issues is autoswitching of headphones and speaker volumes. In windows 7, when I plugged my headphones volume level was automatically changed. For example, for speakers volume level is 0 and for headphones is 60 and, if I plugged headphones volume level was 60 and when I unplugged vol. level was 0 accordingly. But it doenst work in windows 10. Can it be fixed? Thank you for helping.

Hey guys,I have a problem with the volume from my speakers. At a completely random time today, my speaker volume drastically decreased. Usually, when I turn the dial to my speakers up to 100%, the sound is extremely loud. Now, at 100%, the audio is significantly lower. When I plug in a headset into the front Audio port of my computer tower, the sound at 100% is lower than what it used to be as well.The speaker model is Emachines, SP-30A. The volume settings on my computer have not changed. I use Windows Vista, and I have verified that the volume levels are at 100%. The power source has not changed. Nor has the wiring changed either (I made sure that the wires running to the back of my computer are correct).Here is what I've done:Ran Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware: Turned up clean.Ran AVG Free 2011: Turned up clean.Ran SpyBot Search And Destroy: Turned up clean.I have attempted to update my sound card driver, however it said it was already up to date.These facts led me to believe that it is not a virus; however I cannot be sure.If anyone could provide some help it would be greatly appreciated. I can't do anything involving audio with this crappy sound.

A:Beyond Fustrated! - Emachine speakers volume decrease!

The only thing that comes to mind straight off is that, depending on what audio setup the system is equipped with, there may be an option like "boost" buried somewhere maybe on an advanced tab in the audio properties, that may have got turned off somehow.

Does anyone know how to fix the audio on a Win 7 machine? I have no sound on my speakers or with my headphones. I have powered the system off and back on with no success. I have looked in my services and do not see any audio services running or stopped. (not sure what to look for there anyways) I have unplugged the speakers and plugged them back into a different USB port with no success. Headphones not functional in the only place I can plug them in.

I appreciate any help you can give.

Thank you

Hi,

Windows XP Home
Dell DIM4400
Insignia Amplified Stereo Speakers (2)
w/ Subwoofer

What I want to know is, at what setting to PERMANENTLY leave
the volume adjustment that is on the speakers.

I noticed I was cranking up the volume using the "little speaker" volume control in the System Tray, and then also noticed the volume setting/adjustment on the (right) speaker itself was only about half-way.

Question:
Better to turn the volume setting on the speakers "ALL THE WAY UP" and leave it there?
or, use up to the MAX setting on the computer audio volume and leave the speaker volume setting half-way or thereabouts?

Could cranking the volume to max on the speakers damage or shorten the life of the speakers?
Or, are most speaker systems "built to take it"?

Thank you!!

A:Best VOLUME setting for Stereo Desktop Speakers?

Not sure exactly but I have found that it works well if I have my computer volume set half way and then use the volume control on the actual speakers to increase or decrease the volume as required. I do this as I use a laptop and sometime my stereo speakers are not plugged in so don't really like full volume pumping out of my tiny laptop speakers. Would be interesting if someone has a definitive answer.

Just upgraded my Helix 2 (20CH) to Windows 10 (from factory installed 8.1). All fine apart from the fact that the volume is incredibly quiet from teh tablet speakers, even if all mixer controls turned up to 100%. Almost inaudible in fact and most definitely not usable.Seems like I'm not the only one, an internet search reveals that this may be a fault with the Windows 10 driver for the Realtek HD audio device. Apparently it is missing the Dolby software needed to make the speakers work properly.As machine is in warranty I raised a Service Request and Lenovo insisted that the only way round the problem was to reinstall 8.1 !Can anyone help here - is there a workaround ? I dont want to go back to 8.1 and have no idea if or when a new driver may be released.Regards and thanks in advance

I have a small but irritating problem of a German talkshow coming from my speakers. Even if the speakers are turned on but the volume is right down I have these voices coming through the speakers.

It's really annoying when I'm listening to radio online or even watching videos on the PC, the German cut's into everything whenever the speakers are turned on. The volume fades from time to time to just a buzzing noise but then suddenly the volume will increase and voices can be heard clearly.

I'm assuming it's a news/talk programme as occasionally they do talk in English and it's news items. I don't have any particular programme open when it happens. The pc can be turned on but nothing running and the voices will come through.

Does anyone know what may be causing this and a way to maybe fix it and make it go away?
 

A:German talkshow coming through the speakers, loud even with the volume down

Does it still happen when physically disconnected from Internet? Also is anything connected to the system RF controlled? Are the speakers possibly wireless?

I'm just trying to think of anything a stray signal might come in on...

The other day I realized when listening to audio that the volume on the left side was significantly lower through the headphones on my U400. I checked and this problem also exists through the computer speakers. It does not appear to be a problem when I tried it using the hdmi port to my TV as a test.I've played with every audio setting I could find in Windows 10 and have uninstalled and reinstalled numerous audio or audio-related drivers. I've also tried different audio programs (iTunes, Skype, Media Player, etc.). Nothing seems to have had much effect on the issue. I've tried settings such as the volume equalization, changing the balance settings, disabling and enabling enhancements. The only thing that appears to somewhat address the issue is when I lower the volume on the headphones (with the volume control on the headphone set). At some point that seems to allow both sides to be equal, but the volume is much lower than I'd like. Any thoughts as to what the problem might be related to would be much appreciated. I find it interesting that the problem doesn't appear (to me) to be related to the external jack because the same problem occurs with the computer speakers. However, there is no problem as far as i can hear when I use the digital hdmi connection.Thanks
