Low Speaker Output Volume after O/S reinstallation
Posted on 2005-04-30
I recently wiped my hard drive on a Panasonic Toughbook (CF-50) that has a SigmaTel C-Major sound card (embedded, I think). Before the wipe, the sound components worked fine (I have the laptop connected an amplified Boston speaker set). After the O/S reinstallation, the volume level coming out of the speakers is significantly reduced. With the max volume setting on the computer, paired with the max setting on the speakers, I can hardly hear the sound (it is present, though). I reinstalled the drivers for the SigmaTel card, and made sure that the volume settings were at max. No dice so far. Anyone have any experience in such a phenomenon?
