    Exclamation Help! Sound problem dell e1705!

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm having a problem with the sound on my 6 year old Dell E1705. When I level the volume around 10 percent nothing is heard. Even after I go to 20 percent nothing is heard. When I go to about 30 percent, suddenly the volume increases sharply to about what is heard at 100 percent! It really is a pain to deal with this. I can't have the volume under the sound of 100 percent. When I got to 40 percent and onwards, the volume stays the same. The volume stays the same until I go above 100 percent. My hardware works perfectly as it works perfectly with Windows, as I have dual-booted the system. Is there any drivers I need to install? Please Help!

    Thank You!
    Vijay

    Sorry, I don't get to this forum usually. Scroll to this section:"Volume range anomalies" on this page:

    I just found this and it makes things work for now... I am not sure that it is a "fix" but it works
