Grand Theft Auto V for PC Audio Silence After Sleeping in Windows 7

I had a problem with GTA V PC audio – stopped working after suspend in Windows 7.

Hit the start button, type in services.msc and press the Enter key.

Next find Windows Audio in the list of services, right click on it, and choose Restart.

Thanks to this forum post for the solution.

Adjusting Ringtone and Media Volume in Android Lollypop

It’s not immediately obvious how one can set media volume and ringtone volume in Android Lollypop.

If you want your phone to vibrate, or set it to be silent, how can you do this quickly and easily? In addition how can you also have quick and easy control of your media (e.g. music player)?

Set Up

First go to Settings > Buttons and ensure that the “Volume keys control ringtone volume” is set to off.

Ensure volume keys do not control ringtone volume

Ensure volume keys do not control ringtone volume

If this is set to on then you won’t be able to easily control music playback volume – and that could be a real problem if a loud song suddenly comes on.

Changing Ringtone Volume or Setting Vibrate or Silent

Press a volume key on the side (or back) of your phone – up or down, it doesn’t matter.

You will see a slider drop down at the top of your phone:

Touch the sliders icon circled here in red

Touch the sliders icon circled here in red

Touch the sliders icon on the far right of this black bar (circled in red in the photo).

Now you will have the option to set the volume of media (which you can already do by using your physical volume keys) as well as the ringtone volume.

Set the ringtone volume or vibrate by sliding the slider circled in red here

If you must have your phone absolutely silent then touch the “None” button.
