Dell :: XPS M1330 Left Speaker Went Silent

Nov 6, 2009

The left speaker on my Dell XPS M1330 went silent some time ago for all sound sources (Window Media, iTunes, QuickTime) without so much as a crackle.

I suspect that either the speaker itself died or the connecting wire has been dislodged. Do these suspicions seem plausible? Are there other causes I need to consider?

I want to check the connecting left speaker wire and re-attach it, if applicable. Can someone provide me a URL to diagrams that illustrate the speaker wires and their attachments clearly? I tried a Google search without success.

Dell :: 1640 Speakers Weird (right Hand Side Speaker Is MUCH Louder Than My Than The Left Speaker)

Mar 2, 2010

I've been listening to a bunch of podcasts on my laptop lately and realized that the right hand side speaker is MUCH louder than my than the left speaker, in fact if I lower the balance on the right speaker to 0% and left to 100% it's not half as loud as the right at 100%. Is this normal? If not is there a fix for this?

Also when typing, if I press the Caps lock key too fast the cursor disappears and my typing is interrupted anyone know is up with that?

HP/Compaq :: HP DV7T Quad: Audio Is Louder From Right Speaker Then Left Speaker

Mar 1, 2010

The right speaker in my notebook is louder then the left one is. The only way to compensate for the problem is to lower the "balance" in the sound properties for the right speaker (I have it all the way down to 70 if you can believe that!) Now my audio sounds even between the left and right speaker. I think it's ashame that seems to be the only fix for the problem. Not sure if this is a driver issue or a hardware issue.

NVidia installs audio drivers to the computer when installing the video drivers (which I still don't understand why...I thought NVidia was a graphics company?) Then I install the IDT drivers/software afterwards. HP has verified that this is correct so everything on my end is up to date...minus of course offical drivers for the 320M video card that everyone is still waiting on!

Does anyone or have anyone had their left side speaker replaced with DYI. I need a new left side speaker cause mines blew up.

If I were to call dell and order a new one, is it going to be hard to replace or can someone share some pictures with instructions! By the way would the speaker need to include the LED lightings too?

HP/Compaq :: (DV7T-1285DX) Subwoofer = Left Speaker

Feb 19, 2009

I just recently picked up my new DV7, wiped the drive and re-installed Vista Ultimate x64. The machine itself runs great, but after installing all the drivers and the most recent bios, I hit a strange snag- I have my right channel speaker, works fine. But my left channel isn't coming out the left speaker, but out through the subwoofer. I've tried uninstalling the IDT codec and letting Vista use it's own driver, same deal. Re-installed IDT, same deal. I get no sound at all through the left speaker, and Vista only recognizes me as having 2 speakers.

Dell XPS M1330 :: Left And Right Click Touchpad Buttons No Longer Work

Mar 18, 2013

I have owned my Dell M1330 notebook PC (specs in signature below) for over 4 years.  Several weeks ago, the left and right-click touchpad buttons stopped working.  The touchpad itself seems to be operating normally.   I surmise I inadvertently deactivated the touchpad.  I checked the manual, but it did not reveal how to reactivate (or deactivate) the touchpad buttons. How to reactivate the touchpad buttons, such as using the shortcut keys?  I read one post in a PC forum of a similar situation; in that situation, the user's touchpad cable had come loose, but I understand this is a rare occurrence. How to reactivate the touchpad left and right-click buttons.

Dell :: How To Monitor Temp Of E4300 And Silent NB Cooler?

Jan 15, 2009

I have the Antec cooler, and it is louder than the notebook. So, looks like it will be going back to Staples.

I am looking for suggestions other than SpeedFan which is more than I want. For now,

I would just like some temps and some fan RPMs without going to the BIOS which of course requires rebooting.

Sony :: Laptops' 'Silent Mode' SR590

Jan 2, 2010

I recently purchased a Sony SR590, and while I love it, I'm personally VERY susceptible to fan noise.. thus I find problems with being able to hear the fan run constantly. The fan seems to turn on, as soon as I open skype and windows media player...

I recently discovered Sony's 'silent mode' function.. and it seems to cut the fan noise level down. What's the difference between performance mode and silent mode? Do you suppose it's alright for me to keep on silent mode, for my state of sanity (literally)?

From time to time, I run Lightroom CS2, which seems to be my most CPU intensive program... otherwise I usually just have a few internet tabs open, windows media player, and a few chat windows.

Dell :: M1530 2.1 Speaker Setup

May 13, 2009

Is there a way to get 2.1 audio instead of just stereo so I can have control to my subwoofer?

I can only choose stereo, quadraphonic, and 5.1 surround under speaker setup. Is the bass boost the only way I can control my subwoofer on the laptop?

I just have on board audio with sigmatel HD audio software. It will let me change my 2 audio and 1 mic port to all 3 audio ports for front, center, and rear.

Dell :: SXPS 16- Speaker Rattle

Apr 6, 2009

I'm very irritated with a rattle being created by the "subwoofer" to the right of the touchpad on my new SXPS 16. Has anyone with a SXPS 16 noticed this rattle? The rattle is especially bad when I'm talking to people on skype; I'm assuming the midrange frequencies are causing the laptop to rattle ....

Dell :: Xps 1645 I7 A07 Bios &; Speaker Problem! Solved!

Feb 16, 2010

Just thought I'd post some info on what I just went through. Ever since A06 bios release I was having internet connection issues (slow!) and a speaker problem. When I logged off, I got a message saying " waiting for logoff sound" and had to click the force restart/shutdown prompt. Then I installed A07 bios and after playing a mp3 file with windows media player and then restarting, I would have no sound at all!. I had to shutdown, wait a few minutes and restart and sound would come back, weird?

Anyway, I decided to try and solve these issues, so I uninstalled the IDT audio & driver and reinstalled from Dell download site hoping it was just a bad install. BAD MOVE, now my sound really went bad! All sounds played through only one speaker AND it was really muffled sounding. I tried everything to fix this with no luck until I rolled back to A03 bios and ta da, sound was normal again, no issues whatsoever PLUS, my internet connection improved significantly!

Now I am hesitent to update to either the a06 or a07 bios since machine is running better tha n ever on a03. My uneducated opinion is you need to run any updates released prior to a06 or a07 bios before you install these updates.

In conclusion, if you are having issues like me, roll back to A03 bios, reinstall or update drivers, problem solved.

HP/Compaq :: HP DM3 Speaker- UPDATE 11/23/09

Nov 23, 2009

if you're having problems with the speakers on the dm3. I want you to go to hp's website and update the "bios" its very easy to update it. Just type in the model of you're dm3 and click on drivers, and then click on the correct operating system you have.

Make sure you specify if its 32 bit or 64 bit. Then click on the bios update half way down the page and update it. Then I want you to shut down you're dm3 completely. Once its shut down turn it back on and start hitting the "f-10" key on top of you're keyboard.

Keep hitting it until you see it enter a page that is all text, the bios page. This page will not look like a normal page that you're used to and your mouse will not be active. if it asks you to exit say no. Once you are on this page start to hit any of the letter
keys(example- hyfwgsldi, anyone) to produce a beeping sound from your laptop. Now, Pick up your laptop and place the speaker very close to you're ear and listen very carefully if sound is coming out of both sides. There should be sound coming from the left and the right side of the speakers. Now if there is sound only coming from the left side then I have confirmed with a hp level 2 tech that its a hardware problem. This is what is wrong with mine. Either the factory forgot to connect the wires the right side for the speakers or the speaker company messed something up. At this point no software or driver will fix the problem and you need to send you're dm3 in for service or exchange it for another one. Please trust me on this as I spent close to 30 hours and 7 days on the phone with HP.

When I connect and am in a call, my video and audio do not show up, and I am not able to hear my friends but I can see them. I tested to see if the Video function works on Facebook, and the audio and video worked without any problems. Device Manager does not show any errors.

Sony :: Speaker/HP Properties On TZ150N/B

Feb 28, 2009

I don't know if this matters or not w/the built in speakers but does it make any difference selecting the default Format of the sample rate of your speakers?

I see on the Advanced tab there is 16 or 24 bit and then different quality's (CD, DVD & Studio) and Hz's of 44100, 48000, 96000 and 192000. Does changing to the higest Hz and 24 bit and say Studio settings make any real difference? The Default is 16 bit, 44100 Hz (CD Quality).

I lost the speaker adjustment on my bottom tool bar how can I get it back?

Sony :: Speaker Volume On FW490

Jul 22, 2009

I notice a significant difference in volume levels on my FW490. When listening to music via iTunes, or to Sirius online, the levels are adequate. However when I watch a dvd (Bluray or regular), even after turning the speaker volume as high as it will go, the volume is very weak. Is this normal? Headphone volume is fine btw. Is there a setting that boost volume when playing dvd's? Otherwise I will be buying notebook speakers.
