Having problems with your Dell XPS 420 PC Desktop ?

Change the volume in WMC doesn't working...

\015 When i cahnge the volume in WMC with my Dell XPS420 remote Control, the v"olume changes" in the Windows Media Center, but the volume keeps the same. I think i need to program the Remote Control or something to change another output channel or something like that?\015

Answers :

If the remote control causes a visible change with the volume control display but no audible difference, there are only three possible fixes. 1.)Go to Windows "Start > Control Panel > Sounds > Advanced. Here you will find a set of several volume control slide bars each with a check box at the bottom for muting. Un-check any controls marked as muted and raise the volume to 50%. Exit Control Panel. 2.) Many P.C. speaker systems are self amplified and have their own volume controls which supercede anything you do through Windows. 3.)If the problem persists you most likely have a jack plugged into the wrong feed. Allways power OFF and ground yourself before fiddling with computer jacks.
