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.

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.

Hi, Try the following. Download the Realtek HD Audio installer version on the link below and save it to your Downloads folder. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp72001-72500/sp72117.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, download and reinstall the Chipset driver on the following link. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp72001-72500/sp72105.exe When the Chipset reinstallation has completed, shutdown the notebook. Unplug the AC Adapter.  Hold down the Power button continuously for 20 seconds then release it.  Re-insert the battery and plug in the AC Adapter. Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to launch the Start-up Menu and then select f10 to enter the bios menu.  Press f9 to load the defaults ( this is sometimes f5, but the menu at the bottom will show the correct key ), use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter.  Press f10 to save the setting and again use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter. When windows has reloaded, open your Downloads folder, right click on the Realtek installer and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation.  ...

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 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.

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.

I went to HP and did a dozen or more searches without getting a really good hit.

You can go into ControlPanel>Sounds and change the sound for Windows Exit to "none". See if that makes a difference.

My computer (Windows XP) was recently infected with antivirus soft. I used malwarebytes anti malware to remove the infection, and also did a full scan with Microsoft Security Essentials, which is what is running on this computer for an anti-virus program. It seemed to okay at first, but now there are popups about surveys and whatnot showing up. Also, Microsoft Security essentials wasn't able to update itself, saying that it couldn't connect to the internet, even though I was connected. Plus, not sure if it is related, but the internet will stop working about every thirty minutes, even though another computer on the same network was still connecting just fine. AND, Google Chrome has not worked since the infection, even after uninstalling and reinstalling it. So anyway, here's the hijackthis log, thank you:

So, today somehow I contracted this malware/spyware whatever it is called AntiVirus soft. I did a quick Google search and found:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...-antivirus-soft - this guide from here which looked very promising but sadly I'm having trouble with parts of the instructions and was hoping someone could offer some help. First, when I put windows on Safe Mode with Networking, it will not allow me to connect to the internet no matter what so I ended up going back on normal and downloaded the rkill on normal instead. As for the malware program it offers to combat the virus, I already had it previously installed so that was no problem.The problem is rkill doesn't seem to do anything when I went back to safe mode to run it. Then I ran the anti malware program and it doesn't find anything infected at all and shows me a notepad log instead of the list the guide shows it should show me. So I went back to normal mode yet again and ran rkill though it didn't do anything but display a black box and then it disappeared. So I ran the Malwarebytes program again and it still doesn't find anything infected though I still received a message at the bottom of the screen from AntiVirus Soft which is the virus.So far, I haven't seen any more pop ups, and thankfully I haven't seen any more porno pop ups either but I'm not sure if this virus is gone. Is there a way I can check to see if it's truly gone? I mean even when I was sure it w... Read more

Hi, There are many free or shareware versions of this software. You can look through these Google results for something you think will work. A search engine is always the easiest, quickest way to find things like this.

A:Registry soft

CCleaner is pretty much the only program I trust for such thing. You still have to do the backup when it prompts you in case it does someting it shouldn't do and breaks something in the computer.

You have to remember, cleaning the registry is only to be done when troubleshooting as it will not make your computer faster.

Hi guys

Today this Antispyware Soft popped up on my laptop, I gathered it was something false as i have never downloaded that. As you probably know, it produces false claims that there are problems with your pc and therefore try trick you into buying it. I have already tried to get rid with the use of Hijackthis.exe which helps identify infected files and although the Antispyware Soft does not come up anymore im unsure if it has been fully removed.

Here are the logs you need.

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.

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.)

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

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.
