Onboard sound really quiet.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello! All the sudden my sound whent really quiet, yet I can hear my PC the electricity through my speaker, and very very fade sound of the sound I'm playing.

Everything is on 100% And set on 2.0/1 setup.

My other soundcard works great.

I've been testing all diffrent of drivers and tried reinstall Windows. I even tried Linux...same problem there.

Tried all kinds of EQ's. No succes.

Thanks!

It might be a hardware failure of some kind. It could even be due to overclocking, but I dunno how likely that is (I honestly don't have a clue, nor would I).

Oh. Then just open Device Manager and uninstall that HDMI sound driver or whatever it is.

Oh, I thought you were saying something else. My fault.

 

I'm stumped. :/

Have you tried increasing the volume?

Well, that's my week quota of being rude right here. I've had a similar problem except with one channel. First my right channel went quieter and then completely died. The quick and painless solution was simply getting a PCI sound card. Have you inspected your mobo for any signs of failure in the sound part?

In a typical computer audio set up there are 3-4 different places to set volume. Perhaps one of those need to be reset.

If it was just one operating system I would think it could be set to headphones, but the OP also tried Linux and reinstalling Windows. The onboard sound chip could be broken or he could have bad AMD drivers for the GPU. That is where the HDMI sound comes from. He could also try another HDMI output ftom the GPU to see if it works

Now I bought a new R9 290X, same problem.


I think when I accidentally installed the HDMI for my old GPU the onboard sound got fried or something frown.gif

Right now I'm using a Sound blaster Z2 I think it is, but I will buy something better in the future tongue.gif
