Sound very soft

Q: Sound very soft

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 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.)

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?

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 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.

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!

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

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 would say you are better off getting a new sound card with more ports. Switching liek that shoudl be built into the sound card drivers.

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.

There is no software replacement for RAM. Soft RAM never really worked anyways. The best option is to buy more RAM.

I rebooted, and then downloaded and ran SuperAntiSpyware, which caught a few MORE things. Everything seemed fine, but then the next day (Saturday 29th) things started acting funny again, though there weren't any more warning boxes or the AntispywareSoft program box. I then followed these instructions http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...ntispyware-soft I ran them twice for good measure, once in safe mode, once out. MalwareBytes didn't catch anything else, but I think something is still kicking. I cannot update Avira AntiVir at all (last update was Friday 28th). When I try to update SuperAntiSpyware I get error messages that it is being blocked (I did add it to the firewall exception list, and it did nothing). MalwareBytes does seem to be updating, but it's not catching anything. Browser still continues to run painfully slow, somethings seem to just not work, even though they should (e.g., Flash). Hopefully you can help me root this out for good. I know it's still in there - either AntispywareSoft, or something else now. Thank ... Read more

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.

Hi All,

I have downloaded Rkil and Malwarebytes, both seemed to run OK. Malwarebytes reported 7 infections and I removed them. I then checked the Registry and deleted files that Bleepingcomputer recommended.
However, I still get infected! I have to run Rkill and Malwarebytes every morning.
I am using XP pro (SP3) and only visit AOL and my online banking sites.
Thanks for any help...

Can anyone help? I've run Rkill; MalwareBytes; ATF-Cleaner and Superantispyware. All programs report trojans, infected KEY entries and infected files. I can remove them succesfully. However, after a few logins to my AOL account using IE I get the antivirus Soft malware back. Is there a problem with my IE browser?

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

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:

Hey Everyone,
I had a run in with the AntiVirus Software Rogue program, ANTIVIRUS SOFT. I do NOT know how it was installed on my PC being that I was away for the weekend when this happened. Only my brothers have access to it which they had to have something to do with it being they're computer illiterate.

Of course the program had it's typical pop up warning saying "File xxx, could be possibly infected and needs to be removed, please run scan I ran SUPERAntiSpyware and it seemed to do the trick in removing it. 2 days so far so good without any pop ups but the computer is still running slower than normal. I could post a screen shot of the results if need be from Spyware.

Also, I do not know if this is related because of the SOFT program but I have this popup on startup:
Error loading C:\windows\system32\wefogute.dll
The specified module could not be found
I disabled it from starting up this morning 3/09/10, via msconfig just in case being that I saw it in the startups.

Computer Specs:
Dell Inspiron 600m
Windows XP Home Edition SP3
512MB RAM (i know this is very minimum and I do want to up this...suggested site would be appreciated)

Hopefully I provided enough information to get the ball rolling in suggestions or help.

Thanks,
Chris
