Qosmio F20 - volume display bar not visible when I increase/decrease volume

Question: Qosmio F20 - volume display bar not visible when I increase/decrease volume

I can?t see the volume display bar when I increase / decrease volume by Volume Wheel which I have got in my Toshiba Qosmio F20. It used to work but not working since I re-installed my WinXP MCE 2005. Actually it was not working when I installed xp first time 2 years back, but I re-installed my sound driver or hotkeys or something else (which I don?t remember) and then it worked.
Now I did almost everything but still not working.

Anyone can suggest something?

I use W7's volume control for the studio monitors I use. It's not practical to use the knob on the monitors since it is located in the back.

The max volume (100%) in W7 is not loud enough while the minimum volume (0%) still makes sound when Id like it to be mute if it's at 0%

How can this be done?

Alright, so this is about a sound problem, but my tests make me think it's something to do with Windows 7. Here's the issue :

I have a SteelSeries Merc Stealth keyboard with buttons for increasing and decreasing volume. The decreasing volume works, but the increasing does not. So, if I want to increase the volume (in a game, for instance), I would have to alt-tab. I thought this was because my keyboard was somehow broken and that particular button didn't work anymore.

However, I just received a brand new pair of Corsair HS1 headphone. On the cable of the headphones are buttons to increase and decrease the volume of Windows. So, as you may guess, the decreasing button works, but not the increasing one.

Since the probably of having two defective items, one being new for the exact same problem being so slim, my guess is that something in Windows 7 is off. So, can anyone help?

Here's my specs :
Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
Intel i7 Quad Core @2.67GHz
Corsair TX750 750W PSU
Corsair Vengeance 3x4BG CL9-9-9
Gigabyte Radeon HD 6870
Corsair Vengeance 12GB 3x4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Triple Channel
Windows 7 64-bits w/ Service pack 1

Answer:Can decrease volume, but can't increase

Just to specify as a proof the buttons work, when I use a program that enable Global keys like Winamp, the volume of that program will increase or decrease. It's the Windows volume that doesn't increase.

Hi,

I have a Qosmio G20 which i bought in Japan last year and have since changed it over to English operating system and drivers. However one thing ive noticed that is different from the Japanese set up is that everytime i adjust the Volume level using the wheel on the right hand side of the laptop, a large green Volume level display comes up on the screen. I want to get rid of this cos it takes up nearly half of the screen. The Japanese version didnt have this problem.

I checked all the settings in Control Panel and various Properties sections as well but couldnt find anything.

Any suggestions how to remove it? Any other Qosmio users have this on their screen?

Thanks.

When using my laptop speakers my audio will decrease until it is almost mute. The volume slider stays at its original setting (ie. if it was at 50% volume it will say it is 50% even though the volume cannot be heard). If I pause and unpause a video I am watching the volume will return to the volume it should be at but will again decrease to complete silance.

Hey guys,I have a problem with the volume from my speakers. At a completely random time today, my speaker volume drastically decreased. Usually, when I turn the dial to my speakers up to 100%, the sound is extremely loud. Now, at 100%, the audio is significantly lower. When I plug in a headset into the front Audio port of my computer tower, the sound at 100% is lower than what it used to be as well.The speaker model is Emachines, SP-30A. The volume settings on my computer have not changed. I use Windows Vista, and I have verified that the volume levels are at 100%. The power source has not changed. Nor has the wiring changed either (I made sure that the wires running to the back of my computer are correct).Here is what I've done:Ran Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware: Turned up clean.Ran AVG Free 2011: Turned up clean.Ran SpyBot Search And Destroy: Turned up clean.I have attempted to update my sound card driver, however it said it was already up to date.These facts led me to believe that it is not a virus; however I cannot be sure.If anyone could provide some help it would be greatly appreciated. I can't do anything involving audio with this crappy sound.

Answer:Beyond Fustrated! - Emachine speakers volume decrease!

The only thing that comes to mind straight off is that, depending on what audio setup the system is equipped with, there may be an option like "boost" buried somewhere maybe on an advanced tab in the audio properties, that may have got turned off somehow.

Sometimes I can move winamp's volume bar up and down and it won't even be working. What causes this?

Hey guys i got windows 7 and realtek HD audio new laptop so it must be fully updated ... and a 24" monitor but when i plug my Headphones into the monitor the sound is low and ive put it on max .. is there anyway to increase the volume ?
 

Answer:anyway to Increase max volume?

I have the same problem, so I use VLC player for my media files, in VLC player, click TOOLS>EFFECTS AND FILTERS>AUDIO. Then, on the Graphic Equalizer tab, check ENABLE, you can then jack up the preamp, and boost the 10 different EQ levels as you like. As far as increasing volume on embedded media in webpages and things other than your own media files, getting volume increased to your headphones is gonna be a problem. I have been a punk rock musician for over 25 years, my ears are pretty well blown out, but when not using headphones, I use a monster cable from the green output (3.5mm i think it is) on the back of my computer two two RCA inputs on the back of a 300 watt Kenwood home stereo, so I have no shortage of volume there. Hope that helps .

Winamp has the same graphic equalizer setup, you can bump up the preamp which will increase your max volume, and then adjust the individual frequencies as you like via the EQ . With Winamp running, click the tiny "config" button, and the dropdown menu will show, one tab of which contains the graphic EQ. Just click the "on" button. The preamp slider is the farthest one on the left on both VLC and Winamp - and the preamp is where you are going to get your biggest volume boost.

Ff does not, I think, "play" the videos, but the file is played by different applications; the sound should be adjusted with the controls available on those.

I have a WM 6.5.x cell phone . in the Windows directory there is a volume file (simple excel file) that controls the volume , you can boost the volume until your heart is content or until you blow the speakers .

For simplicity , i wish to change the different volume levels on my laptop , almost double everything , so when im at full volume now , i want it to be at 3/4 volume after the "hack"


Secondly, i have an HP DV7- 6163us with beats audio (love it)

THere are a total of 4 speakers , two under the monitor , and two on the very front of the device , im wondering if some way i can increase JUST the front speakers .. however im guessing they just wired those two front speakers into the two speakers under the monitor . i would love to increase just the front two . that would be awesome .

Thank you in advance.
 

Answer:How to increase volume on C drive

0. Make sure you have everything you can't afford to lose backed up.
1. Get Easeus Partition Master (the free one for home use)
2. Shrink E
3. Expand D
4. Shrink D
5. Expand C

Partition Master may let you just shrink E and expand C, but if you have a traditional partition layout the steps I listed will have to occur (even if PM hides the middle ones).

Personally, I would do 1 step at a time and reboot between each. This way if something goes wrong your chances of recovering are much greater.

All video clips I have play the music very quietly, and I have to max out my volume to listen to it. The problem is, when other things make noises, it BLASTS it, and scares the shit out of me. Is there a way I can make video only play louder? Maybe I need a new codec or something?
 

Answer:Increase volume in only movies

Try looking in your mixer settings for the sound card. Usually, the soundcard lets you set individual volumes for things such as WAV, CD, MIDI, MIC, etc. Sounds like (pun ) the WAV setting might be too low.

I just noticed a problem on my y510 . I have had the machine since last January but in recent months noticed that whenever I had a dvd playing I could not increase the volument. The orange volume control doesnt work. The same thing when I have an audio cd in the machine. However, when I play an mp3 that is on my hard disc then the volume control works.  Is this some hardware problem that would require servicing? Best wishes,Donald Nelson

I have a Latitude C510 (Model PPO1L) running Win XP professional and with an 8x DVD-ROM disk drive module. Usually play DVDs i.e.films using a program called InterVideo WinDVD4 but lately it just won't play any DVD at all. So I've started using MediaPlayer, and although the DVDs will play, the sound is only just audible, even though the volume control is at max. Thought this may be a soundcard issue, but the sound is fine with other media and with games e.g. Sims. Sometimes it takes a bit of opening and closing for the DVD to be recognised by the system. I've tried using an optical media cleaning CD but this hasn't helped. Has anyone any ideas re: the route of the problem and if/how it could be fixed? Suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

I've recently purchase a turntable/software that purports to record LPs (records) into my computer via the USB port. My first attempt resulted in a volume level that is way too low. I need to increase the input volume but can't find the mechanism for doing so.

The install instructions say to select my SoundMax card for playback; to select the USB Audio CODEC device/driver for input. The SoundMax card has volume levels but no line input control; the USB Audio CODEC device has no controls whatsover.

My gut says that the USB Audio CODEC device (which is controlling input) is where I should be able to increase volume but I can't.

Suggestions? Thanks.

Hello,

I really don't want where to post this. I am a notereader-scopist, and I use CaseCATalyst edit software for court reporters and scopists. It's pretty cool, actually. Anyway, I have what is called AudioSync from my court reporters where I download large audio files. BTW, I have a Dell computer, Dimension 8200, which works really good. Have XP.

Here's the thing. My audio works really good on anything else like listening to music. It will almost blast you away if I have the volume turned up all the way like I do for my AudioSync. This audio allows me to listen to depositions and edit those depositions instead of using my transcriber that I use cassette tapes with. See what I'm saying? I can plug into my computer and listen to the audio. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.

Anyway, my audio on this computer just isn't loud enough on AudioSync. I have everything turned up that I possibly can. My husband has a cheaper Dell computer than I do, he bought his used, and his sound is strong on the AudioSync. So I don't understand why mine is this way.

Basically, I'm wondering if you know if there's some kind of a sound blaster for my computer or whatever, that can give me more increase in audio volume.

Thanks,
Tiza

Is it possible to increase the sensibility or responsiveness of the digital volume control wheel on the front of the laptop?

Before the A300 I had another Toshiba laptop with an analog volume control wheel, which was much more comfortable to use. One turn only would cover the whole volume scale. The a300's wheel must be turned several times to reduce volume consistently.

As this one is digital I imagine that there is some kind of driver controlling the wheel, so there should be a way to adjust the responsiveness of it. But I couldn't find anything myself.

Thank in advance for any help!

You can increase the sound volume in control panel -> sound -> playback and could change the volume level separately.

Is it possible??? Please help me out.

Answer:Delete a LOGICAL PARTITION to increase volume of C drive.

Hi Joe and welcome to Seven Forums.

The built in Disk Management might be able to do exactly what you want depending on where the 19.5GB partition is located in relation to the C: partition.

How To Access Disk Management in Windows 7

If the 19.5 partition is immediately to the right of the C: partition ( in other words, if the hard drive is set up as C: | 19.5 | 39 | 39 | 107 ) you could format or shrink the 19.5 partition changing it to unallocated space. Then the C: partition could then be extended to incorporate the unallocated space. It's a somewhat complicated process.

Resize a partition in Vista/Windows 7

Or you could use a different free utility called MiniTool Partition Wizard to do the same thing with a lot less hassle and without worrying about where the 19.5 partition is in relation to the C: partition. This tutorial shows exactly how to extend the C: partition.

Operating system is Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, MB is Asus M4A79T-Deluxe, CPU is AMD 965, router is Netgear WNDR3700. I live in a rural area and do not have close neighbors and I have the wireless encrypted.

I have Wildblue (No other real options) as an internet provider and they have a "Fair Access Policy" which limits download and upload traffic on a 30 day rolling total. About 3 weeks ago I noticed my upload volume start making a very sharp increase. Download was not impacted. So I start looking for the cause and run virus checkers, check all running programs and can't find the cause. During this period the upload for 30 days keeps increasing. Where it had been ranging from 300 to 500 MB since 2006 it had jumped to 1700 MB and was increasing daily. I don't know where it would have leveled off. The traffic meter on my router also showed the increase. As far as I could tell the increase in upload traffic was the only thing impacted.

Anyway, I found the source of the increase, it was IPv6 and the Terdeo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface device that goes with it being enabled. I had enabled it for Homegroup. As soon as I disable IPv6 the Terdeo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface device also is disabled and the upload volume returns to the previous levels . And if I enable it the upload volume starts increasing immediately. This is repeatable and the results are evident by the activity on the lights on the Modem and router, and the traffic monitor on the router. ... Read more

Answer:Why does enabling IPv6 increase upload traffic volume?

Your router shouldn't be passing the link-local IPv6 traffic upstream (the intra-homegroup traffic - if your ipv6 address starts with fe80 and it's the only one, then all traffic is link local). Hell, as far as I can tell your router doesn't even support IPv6. If you're not getting a public IPv6 address, then your router wouldn't get IPv6 DNS and it wouldn't resolve anything to a v6 address, hence no outbound traffic on v6. Try disabling the tunneling adapters (isatap & teredo). That's the only way I can think of that IPv6 could leave your network.
