Tecra A3 has very low volume

Hi all, I bought a used Tecra A3. With Win XP Professional, service pack 3. I have not all records with him.
It was working well before a week or two ago. It has very low volume, I have all levels of volume and the maximum wave. The manual volume knob on the front has no effect, it used to work
I think the problem started when I downloaded youtube FLV files, then I downloaded a program ('super' was the name of the program) to convert the FLV files into AVI files.
I uninstalled the program of conversion, I failed to convert anything. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the driver of sound card - card his Realtech AC97. I uninstalled and reinstalled WMP11. None of this has helped.

On this view, I saw how to do a system restore. I thought to perform the system recovery can solve the problem.
My question is, if I perform the system recovery, to the GET to the elimination of the parameters of the box, it will clear the WIN XP operating system?

Thanks for any assistance received, Darren.

Hello Darren

Please do not be angry on me, but make you it so complicated. Let's be clear on this:

Saved on DVD of recovery recovery image contains the operating system, all necessary drivers, Toshiba tools and utilities and some additional applications such as a DVD player. So if you want to install the OS by using Toshiba recovery media will be deleted all content saved on the HDD, formatted partitions and lately OS will be installed. When all is finished you will have clean operating system preinstalled. It will be the same State as the first day after the default purchase.

Then I don't understand what you mean now with the restore process. During the installation of recovery is complete you must not install or configure anything. Just boot OS, install your favorite software, install the Microsoft updates and be happy.

If you have any other questions please post again, but please if you ask something to be clear and precise.

  • Very low volume on Portege R500

    The volume on my R500 (R500 - 11 c to be exact) is ridiculously low. Only with the volume at maximum (100) and using headphones I hear nothing, and even in this case, it is far too low to be useful. I can just do the test sounds to the left and then good listener when using his test detected in Control Panel-> Sound-> speakers (there no helmet to choose)-> Properties-> Advanced-> test. Unplug the headphones I hear nothing in the speakers, because of the (very low) sounds made by the fan and HARD drive. Play music (with headphones) I can just do the sounds are produced, but I can't even on what is happening.

    I tried the things mentioned in the "Satellite 5105-S901 sound is very low (even at max volume) to aid driver Toshiba ' thread without success (including the Loudness equalization).

    I am running Vista Business 32 bit and have tried the driver_audio_realtek26117B.exe, driver_audio_realtek_TC00157600B.exe and Vista_Win7_R243_x86.exe the driver files and also used the util_mute_off_25847B.exe utility.

    Enabling silent makes the already weak sounds go completely silent, so I don't think it's a matter of mute.

    Jack detection works, I can see that in the Realtek HD Audio Manager program. Using sound test of this program (Configuration of the speakers) I have to go to a completely silent, and even in this case I can't hear something on the right headphone. (I think, it's darn so low, that I could imagine I hear.)

    Decreasing the volume slider sound 100 harder almost inaudible noise similarly points out, and around 45 it is more audible even in a quiet room with headphones.

    So it seems that I somehow need to reset the audio chip in a 'normal' level Or it is broken and does not display anything more audible.

    Does anyone have ideas, what I can try next? I can boot XP or Linux, if anyone has any ideas on how to get her here, just to start. (They are silent as well, I did not like extensive tests under those as Vista).


    According to your message, you have tried to increase the volume by using all possible options
    Have you tried to increase the volume in Control Panel-> Realtek HD audio manager?
    Check this box

    You also tried to update the Realtek audio driver.
    Did you use the Realtek page directly?
    Check it!

    If this will not help, you might try the laptop with the new system recovered

    But if this does not improve the volume, then this could be a hardware problem

  • W700 - very low Volume

    It seems that for the first few days, the volume of my W700 are quite strong, but now 100%, it is very low.  When I look at the properties of the speakers, I see that they barely reach 60% on all sound.

    Check if you have Dolby offshore. The volume is much lower than if Dolby has been disabled, it is enabled by default, when you first get the tablet.

  • incoming ring and text very low volume!

    Hi, recently noticed that when I lower the volume level for music, games, video and other media, it also reduces my ringtone and notification volume level too! (even if the level of the slider bar is on max for ringtones, notifications). so if for example I that video down on youtube etc, it takes my volume of text and call down too! This allows to happen and only noticed when I saw led missed call, text, flashing.try your own z3c?

    Are now looking for incoming call, volume of text (very low on mine) so I have to reset the music, video, games, etc to max to hear incoming calls, texts, but I don't want to max volume for music, video.

    BTW, I'm still on kitkat 4.4.4 but like I said volume levels could be addressed individually for unpacking.

    now strange is my companion has MS xperia and I checked her yesterday and it had the same problem (jellybean) and because its volume level on the video, games etc is low, but max on ringtone, text lacks too calls and texts! (unless of course he puts in maximum volume on video games). also using volume on the side of the phone has no effect either.

    any ideas?

  • Very low volume for mp3 youtube or windows media player.

    I have windows vista I have the volume turn completely. But it is very low that if I use the speakers that are built into the computer the volume is fine. But if I plug a speaker on the back of the computer volume is very low.

    Hi Robert,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Community and forums thanks for posting the question.

    I see that the volume is very low during playback of Youtube or Windows Media Player. We will analyze and identify the cause of the problem.

    1. What is the brand and model of the computer?

    2 is this problem limited to Youtube video and Windows Media Player?
    3. do you have the codecs installed on the computer?

    4. are you aware of changes to the computer before the show?

    Because the built-in speakers work correctly, the external speakers may be corrupted.

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to connect the speakers to another computer and check if the speakers are working properly or not.

    Method 2:

    Run the Fixit described in the article:

    Diagnose and solve the problems of Windows audio playback automatically  

    Method 3:

    Although most speakers have a volume control, you can control the overall level of sound using Windows.

    Adjust the speaker volume

  • Latitude C640 with 1470 mini pci wifi has very low signal strength

    I just installed 1470 broadcom mini pci card with the (from decompression R115321.exe) on a Dell Latitude C640 driver version.

    The card sees the network and connects, but I must be withinn 5 feet from the router, and even in this case the signal is 'Very low' (an or maybe 2 bars). I can communicate with various other wireless cards on other laptops with the full signal strength during the major part of the House.

    Why the intensity of the signal would be so bad?

    Is the 1470 is not very sensitive? the driver is bad for my setup? is there an INCOMPATIBILITY between the 1470 and the DLink DI-524 router? Is this an indication that the antenna on my wifi card is damaged? (I got it on ebay)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Equium A100-147: very low volume (sound)

    Hi all

    Just bought a new A100-147 and found that the volume through the built-in speakers is extremely low, even when the scroll bar on the sound setting has been set up. I can barely hear anything, even my PDA has an output sound better than that. The problem exists for MP3, CD, and DVD. I noticed other assignments as well as on this forum with the same problem with other models (80 Equium and others), but cannot find a solution yet.

    It's a standard specific to a few patterns or problem with all laptops from Toshiba? My particular piece could be at fault?

    Any help appreciated.

    See you soon,.

    Don t be mad, but I smile now: ^ O :D
    In any case, thanks for the info

  • Very low Volume in Vista microphone

    Hi people,

    In fact, I have 2 questions using my microphone in Yahoo Messenger in Vista that I didn't have when I used XP.

    (1) I used to use yahoo messenger to talk to the family on my XP operating system. But now, in my new PC with Vista, the microphone volume is so low that my family complains that they can hardly hear me. I literally have to scream so that they can hear something. The mic is the same and I have tried the mic in my brothers PC which has XP and it works really well.

    (2) in addition, in XP I could talk to a PC in yahoo messenger as in the two-way communication system, is that I was able to interept while someone says something to me about voice chat. but now its impossible, I have to wait until the other party has ceased to speak so that I can talk to. Know-how as a half-duplex communication.

    Please help me to solve these issues.

    Kind regards

    I am so excited! My microphone in my headphone works! And I can use in MS and Skype! After playing with all the combinations of audio settings for 2 days solid includes one night at midnight, I finally found the solution. I signed in my PC (gateway) manufacturers and provided the serial number of my PC and searched all the device drivers for my computer. Low and behold there was one available for the Realtek microphone and a speaker that came with my PC. I downloaded and installed and everything works now! Wonderful! For users of the gateway with Windows 7 or Vista, the file was Audio_Realtek_ALC888S - VC2_6.0.1.5901_W7x64. I downloaded and saved on the PC. Then I went to control Panal-> All Control Panel Items-> Manager-> sound, video devices and game controller (Double click)-> Realtek High Definition Audio-> Action-> update driver software. From there you will be directed through the following steps to search for updates on your computer and they will be installed for you. A message came that this updating process can change my current settings and I said almost thank God for it! In any case, I'm as happy as possible. If you are not a user of gateway, the only difference for you would be to look on the Web site of the manufacturer of your computer instead of the site of the bridge. Good luck to all of you sick poor frustrated.
