How should I adjust each volume setting to achieve the best sound quality?

My new laptop works perfectly except for the screen. At boot, the contrast is almost grey. On certain colors/wavelengths(?), there seem to be tiny pixels gyrating, almost like snow on old-fashioned TVs, but much smaller. It's nonetheless distracting. What settings do I change? [more inside]

I recently purchased a Roland RD-700, which sounded ay-may-zing when I was playing it in-store. Playing it at home (without headphones), though, it sounds a bit dull; the highs don't sing, and the lows have no power. It sounded like a concert piano in-store, and it sounds like a sub-$500 keyboard at home. Please help me configure my keyboard settings/speaker location so I can get this keyboard sounding the way it should. The [more inside]
I recently got a Moto X, running the latest KitKat OS. I set up a few basic apps, turned off the sound and vibration to everything, but still every tweet reply and email I get causes the phone to do a short vibrate jolt on notification. I also get the haptic keyboard vibration feedback when typing on it. I've googled, turned every sound/vibrate option off in Settings and still can't get this phone to be quiet and vibrate-free on both counts. What am I doing wrong here?
I need to copy text between a commercial text editor (TextPad 6.1.3 by Helios) and a home brew program used by my company.

So what function of Facebook is it that lets my friends see the comments I've made on pages I like - which they have NOT liked - and comment on them?

I thought I had my settings pretty nailed down, but can't figure out where this one is. Thanks. [more inside]

Ack. Happily coding away in DreamWeaver when my monitor hiccuped, and suddenly my horizontal display had been switched to a vertical one (ie, so I need to rotate my monitor 90 degrees CW to read properly). No amount of poking around Windows XP settings or Googling has given me the simple solution I seek: How on earth do I switch back to a regular horizontal view? Everything else seems to be working just dandy.
