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.
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.
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.
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 ....
I own a HP Pavilion Dv5 1171en laptop and find that my surround option in sound menu in control panel is unnavallable !
Tho i have sound from my 5.1 audio system when i connect it to the laptop but it seems significantly lower and lower quality than when connected to the PC ... improve my sound somehow ? I wonder how do i get that Surround Sound option enabled in the control panel ...
I have been trying to get 5.1 sound with my laptop, i have heard people i think with other models that make microphone jack into a center/surround output, and other have said that its possible with hdmi but i have tried with latest drivers of HMDI that i got (22.214.171.124).
I just put in a DVD to test the speakers sound quality and noticed the sound is very low. Even when turned up via the touch controls the audio is barely audible (hardly one of the best laptop audios). Am I missing something, or did I get a bad apple?
I replaced the mobo in a dv8000 I picked up on the cheap. Put it all back together, loaded vista on it, and I am getting no sound at all from the speakers. If I plug headphones into the side of it, I can hear sound fine, but speakers are not working at all. I have replaced the speakers with a known good set, and still the same thing, nothing from the speakers at all. I have also replaced the audio / usb board, with the same result.
The sound overlay keeps coming on every 2 seconds with the sound like its changing the volume, but it isnt. If i try using my finger it goes up and down maybe 2 bars then goes back to where it was stuck at after going mental for another 5 seconds. I can only change the volume using the taskbar icon, but the overlay keeps coming on. mute doesnt work, pause/play etc doesnt work, quickplay. You can imagine its incredibly annoying.
Is there a driver i can reinstall or something?
Its a vid file of the problem, when you see the bars going up and down, thats me trying to change the volume.
I have downgrade my system to windows xp sp3 from vista home 32 bit orignal edition. i got all driver but didn't get sound driver. i did all tried but no luck i am getting below error when i am trying to install sound driver.

I did my all tried but no luck can anyone guide me for above error ? or is there any compatibale driver for the same ? even technical support raise their hands.........
I just got my new HP DV 4T. It works very nicely, but the on board sound is just OK. I have the volume control turned up all the way, but you need to be within about 10 feet to heard it well. Is that normal? Do I need some external speakers, or is there are way to boost up the sound?
Have Laptop Compaq N610C,P4,512mb ram.windowsxp pro sp3.
Yesterday it was working.I did not install any new hardware or program.I usde headphone to listen music.Today When I played music,there is no sound.I checked the connections.uninstalled the driver and reinstalled the sound driver but no sound.I checked it has all properties on.no mute on.
I don't have sound anymore. On the sound icon in the system tray it shows the sound on, however, just above the function keys, there is a sound icon that is color orange with the mute button on. So, how do I get my sound on again.
I can record via the mic, using something like the inbuilt Sound Recorder software, and the saved file contains the correct recording. However I'm not able to monitor that sound via the speakers (or headphones or external speakers).
As I'm hoping to use the laptop for music making this is a big issue - for example plugging a synth into the mic socket means that I can record the synth, but can't actually hear what I'm playing during the recording.
I've tried using a couple of professional audio applications but it's the same issue - there's no ability to monitor the input audio.
The mic socket works - as it's recording. And the hardware is able to monitor the sound - as I have heard a burst of the input sound occasionally when accessing help files or software settings when in the applications.
It sounds like a software glitch...or do you think this could be duff hardware? I don't have this problem on my desktop XP machine.
I have been having persistent issues with sound on my laptop.
The issues are:
If the laptop has not been restarted for more than a few hours, the sound begins to distort. This gets progressively worse as the laptop is left on, to the point that it severely distorts, and even movies, etc. (from my hard drive, not the internet) start to visually skip, in sync with the sound. Restarting the computer by any means, i.e. hard restart, soft restart, etc, fixes the issue temporarily, but as mentioned previously, the sound starts to distort again. At times, online videos skip ever so slightly, though this is not nearly as severe as the sound distortion. (This may not be related, as I have a lousy internet connection, but the sound distorts nonetheless). Additionally, this happens not only through the speakers, but through the headphone jacks as well.
I have googled around, and while I have found that there are known sound issues with the DV6700, none of them seem to match this exactly. However, I have heard that the media chip (I don't know the technical name) is known to cause issues, so I suspect this may be the problem. That wouldn't explain the temporary fix from restarting though...
I have installed/updated the drivers for my speakers, among other things. I also checked my system idle process, because I thought it may be a simple case of stressing the CPU. The system idle process is at 85, however, so I doubt this is the problem. I also e-mailed tech support, but naturally this was no help.
When i use the sliding thing on my dv5, the volume overlay comes on and if im playing a game or something, it has to minimize. Its incredibly frustrating. Also its in the middle of the screen so if im watching a movie it gets in the way for a full 5 seconds.
Does anyone know how to stop this?
and for hp users check out the attachment, it turns off your display. Its really useful.
I have a friend who brought the DV2-1027 (canadian version, maybe I make a mistake with the exact model number) with staples. When we start a movie from the external DVD, there's no sound that I can't hear but I hear sound on windows or on youtube for example.
Do you have an Idea about what it is ( tomorrow I will update the graphic card driver to verify if this is the problem, if not I don't know what will be the problem.
A year ago something odd happened. The soundcard just turned off, the computer crashed and turned off. When it was back up, the soundcard could not be founded anymore, and i've got like fourty "Unknow Device on High Definition Audio Bus" on my device manager.
I've tried everything, used all the recovery options from hp, even the restoration to the recorded image of the system. Tried to reinstall all drivers and nothing solved.
The system kept throwing windows nonstop. Like that:
So, what i did was just disabling the High Definition Audio Bus on System Device, and bought an Usb external sound card. Ok, its working great, BUT, i obviously dont get any sounds from the internal notebook speaker or microphone. And neither the mute light, on quickplay buttons, works. Its red all the time. Muted or not.
