How to Optimize the Sound on My Sony Vaio
By Dave Wilson
Most Sony Vaio computers come equipped with a pair of audio speakers designed to enrich the audio performance of the computer. However, the sound settings on the computer may not be optimized to take full advantage of the speaker hardware. Use the sound and speaker utilities provided in the Windows operating system to quickly adjust the audio and speakers to suit your personal preferences.
Click the "Start" button on the desktop of your Sony Vaio computer. Click "Control Panel" and type "sound" in the "Search Control Panel" box in the upper right corner of the Control Panel window. Choose "Sound." A configuration window opens.
Click the "Playback" tab and then click "Speakers," "Configure" and click on the speaker configuration that matches the audio speakers on your Sony Vaio. Click the "Test" button. Click "Next."
Click the "Full-range Speaker" option. Click "Next" and then "Finish."
Double-click on "Speakers." In the window that opens, click the "Levels" tab. Move the "Speakers/Headphones" slider to adjust speaker volume to your liking. Click the "Balance" button to adjust the balance to your preference. Press the "Enter" key and click the "OK" button to save the optimized settings on your Sony Vaio.
