My 5 year old son opened the volume mixer of my PC and changed values of all the available options. I was unaware of it, until he said, "Look Dad, it's so much fun". He was actually moving the slider upside down and changed all the values. I know it's little embarrassing but can anyone please tell me the appropriate values of all the options?
Values of Volume mixer changed help
You really don’t have to worry if all the options in the Volume Control have changed. It can easily be restored by moving the sliders either left or right and up or down. It’s only the Volume Control and Wave control that’s important because they are the ones handling the overall volume level or sound level of the computer. See image below for reference.
To adjust the volume options for your computer, go to the Volume Control window by clicking Start, Control Panel, “Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices”, and then “Sounds and Audio Devices Properties”. In Volume tab under “Device volume” section, click Advanced. See image.
You will see different sections in the Volume Control window like the Volume Control, Wave, SW Synth, CD Player, and Line In. Below each you will see Balance and a slider beneath it that you can adjust Left, Center, or Right. This slider should be placed always in the center.
Below it is Volume which has a slider that you can adjust up or down. You can adjust this slider up or down to increase or decrease the volume of your computer. Now to restore the volume options to default, just follow the slider positions described in the first image.
All sliders under Balance should be placed in the center to balance the volume of your speakers. The Volume slider for Wave and Volume Control should be moved all the way up. Follow the slider positions for CD Player and Line In as well as putting a check in Mute under Line In.
