the dolby surround sound expander and the bass enhancer program on the bottom right in the taskbar?? well when i turn off the surround sound, it causes certain apps to sound different. for example the fingerprint reader. a successful swipe will sound muddy but with the surround sound enabled, it will become clear. this problem also conflicts with AIM and webchat, id have to turn on the surround sound to hear the person's voice clearly.
So as the title states, I am wondering if it is possible to play a video with audio encoded in Dolby Digital on my laptop, pass it through to my TV via HDMI, then out via optical to my receiver. I have a friend who owns a HP business laptop with a SoundMAX sound card, but also an ATI graphics card. We are both running the Realtek ATI HDMI 2.39 drivers, I have the latest drivers from Dell for the IDT sound card on my Studio XPS 16 (1640). He says (and I've seen) he is able to do Dolby Digital this way through an option (see attachment).
However, I do not have this same "Custom" tab / option, and we are running the same driver version (at least to my knowledge). Can anyone help me in finding out if this is doable, and if so, what software (and versions) are required?
I have a HP 8510p (XP32) that works really fine. The only thing that I can not make it happen is that whatever I try I can not get the DD, DTS work between my laptop HDMI and my receive. I recieive only stereo (Audio HDMI OUT is selected).
Question: 1) How on earth can I get DTS/DD from my laptop HDMI when i play a mkv with DTS/DD audio?
2) If I connect the laptop to the TV via HDMI and the laptop to my amp via optical, can it make the trick? (the only problem here is that, my laptop does not have optical out, just HDMI and analog, but using a docking station i can have optical out...)
I have a problem with the Dolby utility that came preinstalled on Acer Aspire V7 482PG. When I click it, it takes around 5-20 seconds for the interface to show up (5 when I am not doing anything, more during playing anything with sound (youtube video etc.). Sometimes it does not even open and the icon disappears until I log off the PC and logon again.
PS.: there is enough HDD space, it is defragmented, there are no viruses or spyware (according to Defender and Malwarebytes), there are not too many programs running in the background.
I erased all my data from my computer (Aspire V5-561p-6823) I want to download the Dolby Digital Plus Home Theater 220.127.116.11 in my computer .. but I don't know where I can do it ! I've tryed everything and I still haven't found it.
I have a Dell XPS M1530 with the sound card that comes with the package. I also have the soundblaster audigy software but that is irrelevant as it pretty much does nothing.
I have a Yamaha TSS-15 surround sound system. It worked beautifully with my laptop before I reformatted. After reformatting, despite installing the latest Sigmatel High Definition Audio CODEC as well as ensuring the actual physical surround sound system was all in working order I am unable to get 5.1 from my laptop. When I click "test" and I click on the middle, rear speakers or subwoofer no sound is emitted however when I click on the left or right speakers they work fine. I have a standard audio cable plugged into my laptop which is then plugged into my surround sound system.
i havent long owned my hdx16 but am wondering of it is possible to connect my 5.1 surround system to it, it has 3 audio in jacks on the system and the laptop has 3 ports on it, surley there must be a way to connect the system.
what is the easiest way to connect and properly operate a Logitech Z-5500 surround sound system from my new macbook pro 15inch. Do i have to get a new sound card? Or is there some sort of cable that I can buy instead?
My surround sound was incredible! But now after the latest updates, I can hardly hear the actors speaking due to the surround sound being so loud. How can I fix this? Or how can I "undo" the update? I have a Carbon X1 ....
There is currently a major security flaw in the DigitalPersona software used by the Studio's fingerprint reader, whereby a user can launch Internet Explorer (or the default browser) without logging on to the system.
If you have the software installed now, go ahead and give it a try. Either log off, or lock the system and then click "Swipe you finger to unlock" account, and then "Enroll Fingerprints".
Finally right click on the animation in the wizard and select "About Adobe Flash Player", launching Microsoft Internet Explorer.
My WDC WD2500BEVS-75UST0 (HDD) "clicking" in IDLE MODE. On normal or heavy load I can't hear the click. But in IDLE - my WDC clearly "clicking". I used NHC and set the option "Max Performance 254" and It is fine all the time. But I hate NHC and overall addition programs in the start-up. I found too the HDD has jumper: http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc....p?p_faqid=1410 To reduce "Spin UP" but I'm under warranty, and it is no option. Any advice.It is not big deal, and I can hear it only when my HDD is IDLE but.... OS: Windows Vista HDD temperatures: normal range - 33-35-37 C Maximum reached: 40-41 C The temperatures are fine by my opinion. NO BAD SECTORS!
I own a HP Pavilion Dv5 1171en laptop and find that my surround option in sound menu in control panel is unnavallable !

I just purchased a refurbished Dell Studio 1535 for my GF. I am getting no sound out of the speakers. I tried plugging in external speakers and Im getting the same result. I see the volume icon bouncing up and down when I play things, but there is just no sounds.
