Computer suddenly stopped playing sounds.

Q: Computer suddenly stopped playing sounds.

Every time I try to play music in Windows Media Player no sound comes out of my speakers. I'm not sure if its just Media Player, but I'm fairly sure it's not just Media Player.

When this first started, simply turning the volume up a notch made sound come out. But the sound would stop after a minute or so. Also, it has been making my computer freeze up frequently. I've tried playing music on websites like playlist.com and my computer locks up.

This just started happening today. I looked for hardware conflicts and found none. The speakers work fine. I believe it must be some sort of Malware.

Here's my Log

A:My Acer Aspire 4741G laptop sounds suddenly stopped working

"I already checked the sound driver, no question marks appeared"... Do you mean no exclamation points like this (!)? If you can hear normal sound from the headset the sound driver is okay. This could be caused by a keyboard setting. Make sure the sound is all the way up and that it is not muted

Hello
I am new here & need help with this one. A couple of days ago the sound in my pc failed. It was working fine before that. I tried the usual, installing the sound driver again but it did not work.

Now I can see the driver icon in the system tray & occasionally the volume control icon as well but when I click it, a message is displayed that there are no active mixers available. Also I use AIMP2 as my music player & it has been displaying this message "cannot initialize sound engine". My speakers work fine.

I am not sure but I think the problem is with the sound card. Any ideas??? PLEASE HELP .

Btw my sound card is built into the motherboard & the motherboard is about 4-5 yrs old. Here are the specs:

Hi guys!

I am really a computer noob, and I really need help to figure out the problem I have with my laptop.
Beginning yesterday, my computer suddenly plays random sounds that I think come up from some sort of advertisement or radio dialogues, some last for a few second, some lasts for about 3 minutes or so.
And I am using the Logitech MX Revolution Mouse, and notice my mouse automatically go from click-to-click scroll mode to free spin scroll mode, which I think indicating that my laptop opened a few invisible advertisements.
I try to run spyware and antivirus using PC Tools Spyware Doctor + Antivirus, and everytime I cleaned a few Adware.Advertising and Application.TrackingCookies, when I run yet another scan a few minutes after, I find the same infections again and again.

Can somebody tell me what happened and how I can solve this problem?
Thank you!

Thank you all.

It started happening 1 month ago all of a sudden. I don't know what information I can give you else. Please ask if you need it.

As of right now, starting and stopping the audio service doesn't do anything and the sound on start up and login for Windows 7 plays loud and clear. However, playing star wars battlefront 3? No sound. Literally after the start up sound plays, nothing else does.

However, sometimes when I turn on the computer, the sound comes on again and works consistently fine after a few reboots with no sound.

When I attempt to Test the sound configuration, it simply states:

I have no other devices except the built in IDT Audio from my laptop with Dre Beats Software enhancement. Please help.

A:No Sound on Computer. Suddenly. Startup sounds play.

Since you haven't mentioned what you've done, I'm going to start with the obvious by saying uninstall your audio drivers, reboot, and reinstall them. Search for the latest drivers for your laptop model off the manufacturer's website.

Also, are you using USB speakers/headphones or analog ones?

Also, what happens when you play media files from windows? Is the problem present only with games?

I just installed Vista on this PC, and after getting everything that I need downloaded and installed, it plays 2 sounds randomly, 1 of which I can't figure out.

The first sound it plays is the sound from AIM when you send an instant message to someone (imsend.wav). The second sound sounds like it's part of some rock music track, about 5 beats long. It's kind of hard to explain, but they both just play whenever they feel like it.

The AIM sound plays regardless of AIM being open or not, and the 2nd sound seems to play any time as well.

I've scanned for viruses/spyware with Spybot, Windows Defender, and AVG, and nothing ever turned up. This is an HJT log (I'm running vista, and it seemed to give me a few errors when scanning the PC).

Reinstallation of Vista isn't an option I'm willing to consider at this time. This also happened on my old PC with XP Media Center.

Today, these random sounds started playing from my computer. It sounds like a sound that you'd get when you have a new notification or an alert sound. I dont really know what it is, and theres no suspicious processes in the task manager. I checked all open websites and I dont have any alerts/notifications.

I'm extremely confused as to why it's still doing this. I tested my microphone and it doesn't work with my voice. It just plays sounds from my computer. I played a youtube video and I could hear it but not my voice, so its playing sounds from my computer and not my voice.

I've tried everything now. Reinstalled drivers, mic is unmuted, made sure it isn't the steromix selected.. etc.

I have my microphone selected as default device and my headphones set as default. I've been through all the properties and still not luck, need help.

Why is my computer making playing these sounds when...?

Anyone ever heard of the old computer game "Commander Keen"? If you're really familiar with it, do you remember the sounds that played during certain actions during the game? I.e. shooting your gun, entering a new level, etc.

Well, one day when I was really bored a while back, I downloaded the game just to see how well I remembered it all.

I uninstalled it forever ago, but sometimes my computer still makes a couple of the sounds from it. I have a dell laptop, and with that I have a Microsoft wireless keyboard. now, whenever I power on my computer and open windows, the first time I press a key such as alt, tab or ctrl (on my laptop keyboard only) it plays a couple of those sounds. And doesn't do it again until I reboot my computer and press one of those keys again.

Also, it only plays on my laptop speakers even though I have my Logitech Z-5300 THX 5.1 Speakers hooked up and on. All of my other sounds (including warning and system sounds) play over those.

Even though it wouldn't be something you could set in your Sounds and Audio Devices Properties, I checked there anyways and everything is at its default sound. Ive never changed any of those.

Does anyone have any idea what the heck is causing this?
 

A:Solved: why is my computer making playing these sounds when...

WOW "Commander Keen"! I have not hear about it in years.

When uninstalling a program many leave peices of themselves behind. So I recommend you try a System Restore selecting a date before you installed it. Otherwise you are going to have to search the Windows Registry and delete any forgotten peice, which is hard and dangerous to do.

Hi,

This PC problem has been around since the computer was purchased two years ago.
The computer name is Compaq Presario PC AMD 64 Athlon, the OS being Windows XP Media Center Edition. I've noticed that, whenever a program loads up, taking more than 70% of the CPU (in the task manager), the computer fan spins so quickly that a very loud whirring sound is produced. Not only is this sound annoying to hear, but also I am worried about the long term damages of the computer when the internal server overheats (which is probably why the fan is spinning so loudly).
Terminating the application in the task manager is what i do if the fan-spinning doesn't stop on its own, but there are several problems:
1. If that application is System, then I can't terminate it
2. Sometimes an application (e.g. IE) loads for a second and the CPU usage jumps quickly to 100%, before jumping back to 0%. This could damage the CPU
3. If I'm using a certain program, or visiting a site that has flash media, for example, the fan would spin loudly. I'm stuck between stopping what I'm doing or enduring the loud noise before the computer invariably shuts down on itself

Is there any way to fix this problem?
 

A:Presario PC fan produces loud sounds, shuts down computer if not stopped

It's probably too late now but if it was doing this since it was new, you should have returned it to be fixed free under warranty. It sounds like the heatsink is not connected to the CPU properly or there is something wrong with the thermal compound connection between the heatsink and CPU.

Hi, I really need your help guys. So, my computer suddenly stopped responding / hanged, cant do anything, not even CTRL+ALT+DEL . so I long pressed the power button, waited for a while then turned it back on. but when it starts to load, 2 options comes up Repair Windows (recommended) and Start Windows Normally . Either of those ends up loading the System Repair, it starts to load the files, but ends up in a blank space with a cursor. so then I tried again using a USB System Repair Disc (Copied the content of the created System Repair disc to the Flash Drive) it boots up the USB, loads the files, goes to the blank screen again, then after about a minute or so, the first option box appears. "select your keyboard input method". Then i click Next, then it took about half an hour or so to take me to the "Select your operating system" which is blank. still i waited then about another half an hour, it starts to search for windows installation. then another half an hour, it finishes the scan. Windows 7 is showed in the option box, but the partition size is 0 mb. so then i just clicked next, then about another half an hour. System Recovery Option box appears. then i clicked Startup Repair and it starts scanning. now then, more than an hour later a cmd prompt appears minimized on the bottom left corner of the screen. so i just let it do its work. then about an hour and a half, cmd box is gone and the system is now "Attempting repairs...

Hi there,

Recently, my computer has been very strange... I have been having unwitnessed BSODs (showing up in the reliability monitor), lots of hardware errors in the reliability monitor and multiple programs stopping working. The troubleshooting steps I took to try to solve these issues were: updating all drivers, testing ram with memtest86+ (8 passes OK), testing the hard drive with Sea Tools (all ok) and refreshing windows 10.

A couple of days ago, I experienced my start menu, Cortana all ?apps? etc. not working. So, I logged off, only to find a black screen with a curser! The only way to turn off was to do a hard shut down. After turning back on again, I got the usual windows start up screen and normal ?AVG watchdog starting up? text (see attachment). However, my computer freezes at this stage. AVG stops at ??finished? and the computer freezes!

After trying to boot into safe mode, I simply get the black screen and curser again.

Luckily, I have all files backed up and other computers to use, but I am really concerned about the root cause of my problems as I have had similar errors in previous installs of windows.

Would these problems be caused by hardware? I am happy to clean install if necessary? but I would like to find out the causes of my problems first.

Thank you very much for your help.

A:Computer Suddenly Stopped Booting up...

Mentioning most of the event related to AVG, what about if we suspect that AVG as a root cause?

Hey guys, I recently had my computer crash on me for the first time in a long time. After it rebooted, I noticed that random audio was playing in the background. It almost sounds like a bunch of pop-up ads are open at once, but there are none open on my computer. In my volume mixer, the sound source is listed as "Host Process for Windows Services."
 
I have been trying to fix this on my own, but I have been unsuccessful. So far I have tried scanning with Malwarebytes/Spybot Search and Destroy, used CCleaner, used TDSSKiller and Rkill, and did a Combofix scan. Even after using all of those tools, the sounds still play, and the computer crashes after a random amount of time. Sometimes the crash happens after only a few minutes, and sometimes it happens after a couple hours. I would also like to note that the Malwarebytes and Spybot scans came up clean. I have my combofix log but I think I'm not supposed to post it here.
 
I would appreciate any help/advice that you have for me.
 
Thanks.

Computer starting this yesterday afternoon.  I've read many posts and have tried, in Safe Mode, the following TDSSKill, RKill, Malware Bytes, SuperantiSpyware, ComboFix, HitmanPro, RogueKiller and the hoki poki and nothing has worked.  I believe it's to do with a malware called Rootkit.bot and it's corrupted my pcss.dll file.

I have a wired lan connection directly from my ASUS router to my desktop computer. The connection has been fine for months. Last night I shut my desktop and turned it on normally this morning. It is no longer detecting the wired connection. No one in the house touched the router, wire, or computer at any point. The only way I can get internet is if I enable wireless. But being that the router is upstairs, the speed is slow.

I plugged the same wire into my laptop, and my laptop is detecting it fine. So now I know it's not a router or wire issue, it's my desktop. I don't understand why it would stop working out of no where. Any idea what to do?

Woke up one morning after shutting down the computer for the night, and it wouldn't start. Everything is still plugged in, the settings are no different than what they were when it was working. The green light at the back of the power supply is on, as is the one in the front. When we unplug the power supply, the light at the back stays on for over a minute (but I don't know if that's normal). And sometimes the light in front is blinking, sometimes it's not.
The disc drive still seems to be trying to do something, though it only lasts for a couple of seconds. Everything else isn't responding at all. It doesn't look like anything else is doing anything at all, and there is none of the usual sounds that mean the computer is starting. It's totally silent. The monitor will stay on long enough to say it isn't connected, and then turn off.
This same thing happened about a week ago, and it randomly started working the same day that it stopped, we aren't sure why. We had to turn it off last night because of a storm, and now its doing the exact same thing as before. The whole time in between these two incidences it was working just fine, as long as we didn't turn it off.
Please help if you can.

Hello all, I am in dire need of help with my DVD-ROM Drive, otherwise I will have to send my computer in to the company where they will wipe the HDD.

I know how to burn DVDs and everything, and my computer has had no problem with it, up until yesterday. I was using my usual program to burn a DVD with, but this time --for the 1st time-- about 15% into the burning process, it came up with a dialogue box that said "Cannot set address for....." and then it displayed a bunch of numbers below that. Now, everytime I insert a blacnk DVD of any kind, any brand, what have you, you can hear the laser in the drive bouncing around like it's trying to read a badly scratched disc whereas the discs are spotless, and after about minute, it spits them out. I have run virus scans, done a system restore and had the drivers reinstalled, but to no avail. BUT!!!!! Here is the weird thing: It will read any other disc I stick in there perfectly! It makes no sense. Can any of you guys help me with this problem? If you can help me with this and stop them from having to wipe my HDD for no real reason, then you are the best person ever!!! Thanks alot, guys!

I didn't know if this was the right forum to post this in, but I am pretty sure that it is a problem with Vista.....

Right now I have two PC's connected to my network, One that is wired to the router and a wireless connection that I'm on downstairs. Today, for some reason, the wired connection stopped working. I can't connect in a browser or messaging programs or anything. I really don't know what to do, as all my connections are fine, and it was working just yesterday.
My wired connection uses a RealTek integrated card, MSI motherboard.
Any help is appreciated, thanks.

I have a Dell Inspiron 546S, Windows Vista Home Premium, 64-bit OS.

Up until today, I have been able to load photos from my SD memory card through the built in card reader on the tower. I've always had to either put it in just right or wiggle it a touch in order for the computer to recognize the card. Today, nothing works. I've wiggled and jiggled, stuck it straight in, pulled it half out, done the hokey pokey, and restarted the computer. Nada, zip, zilch. I finally used the USB cable and that works. It is not a new card, it's one I've been using all along. Nothing has changed in anyway except the the computer suddenly refuses to recognize the card!

Any suggestions?

I forgot to mention, the green light does come on, but I don't get the "new device found" sound. It's not in the device manager or anything else. In fact the device manager says it's working "properly."

Okay. My little brother was on my dad's computer. He was playing a flash game and listening to music on WMP. Suddenly, WMP came up with an error saying the media was corrupt, and the blue screen of death came up. I didn't see what the blue screen's error was, but when the computer reset, it came up with "Boot Device Not Found".
 
We reset the computer manually, letting it sit for a minute unplugged. It booted up slower than normal, but otherwise properly. We then ran chkdsk, it said that the Master File Table's BITMAP was incorrect. We then ran chkdsk /scan as it told us to, and it said there were no errors in the filesystem.
 
Are the errors gone? If not, what should I do to fix them?

Hi guys,

I am new to the forum and here is my problem:

I have custom built a new PC recently:

i5-4590
16GB Kingston 1600MHz CL9 memory
MSI H97M-G43 MB
EVGA GTX 980
Corsair VS 650W 80+ PSU
Zalman Z11 Plus
1TB Toshiba HDD
Sandisk 128GB Ultra SSD

I had two instances of computer freezing. I couldn't even reset the system. I had to hold the power button to shut down and then restart again. I checked the minidump file from C:\Windows\Minidump but couldn't find anything. Is there any way I can find the error that caused the freezing of the PC? Any debugging options that I can use?

I really don't know how to analyze minidump files but I couldn't see any being created. I read elsewhere that Event Viewer/Log could also save these kinds of errors.

Any suggestions as to what I should do to find out the error causing this?

Notes:
The bios is up to date.
Windows is newly installed.
Games are running from D:\
Chipset, GPU, sound, etc. drivers are all up to date.

Just 4 hours ago, I played GTA 5 on ultra settings, nothing happened...It only occured once.

**Edit
Here is the DM Log collector Tool file:
Edit**
The freezing usually occurs when playing GTA V online.

So, to give some background, this is my first build, and it has been assembled and working for 4 months now with no problems. I was able to identify the original motherboard as defective the first time I was building it, and the new one has never given me any problems.

My parts are an i5 2500k, a Gigabyte 768 mobo, a Seasonic 750x PSU, a Gigabyte 6850, and 8GB of GSKILL RAM. And I have an aftermarket heatsink as well. CPU is not overclocked.

Essentially, I was running it overnight to patch a game, and this morning when I came to wake it up the monitor wasn't showing anything. Turned it on and off again, "no signal", etc. I tried turning on my sound and restarting the computer, and I didn't get the bootup sound, so I'm guessing my CPU is not booting at all.

I have run it overnight before with no problems, and as stated, I have an aftermarket heatsink and it's not overclocked. I would be very surprised if it overheated.

Also, normally when I boot up, the motherboard LEDs start up for a second and then turn off. Now they're just staying on- not blinking, just staying on. I don't think it's the PSU either, as it has more than enough wattage, but a failure is always possible I suppose.

I have not taken it apart yet- I'd like to avoid that if possible- but if you have any advice I'm willing to take it. Hopefully, if I can't resolve it, I can at least find out which part is the issue.

Thank you very much for your help... Read more

I don't know what's wrong. One day I was playing fable and then I exited. I was going to take out my wc3 CD out of the CD drive because I was going to play it on my other comp, but it wouldn't open. So I resetted the comp and then the CD drive opened. Next thing I know playing fable again, the computer all of a sudden resetted by itself. Now when playing any games, the computer would crash. Sometimes just clicking links and such would make my computer crash.

An error message sometimes pops up at the start of windows. The message s STOP 0x000000EATHREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER. It says that it's a graphics issue, but I installed the most recent drivers and it still doesn't work. The last resort says to replace my video card, but I'd like to hope that there's another way. When it crashes the screen turns black for a few seconds, then resets or instead of turning black, the colors and pictures of what's on my screen would just get all messed up. After turning off the autoreboot under system failure, all the screen does is stay black now. My video card is an ATI RADEON 9600

Note: I've had this video card for 2 years already.

I don't know why this is happening =\, but here's my minidumps if it helps.
 

A:Computer suddenly crashing/resetting when playing games.

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

All your minidumps crash at your video card drivers. They all have a bugcheck of EA.

0x000000EA: THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER

A device driver problem has caused the system to pause indefinitely (hang). Typically, this is caused by a display driver waiting for the video hardware to enter an idle state. This might indicate a hardware problem with the video adapter, or a faulty video driver.

As you can see. This is either a problem with your video card drivers, or with the card itself.

If your card is overclocked, reset it to the defaults.

Try uninstalling, and reinstalling the drivers. Maybe try a different version of the drivers.

Check your card for overheating. Make sure any fan on the card is running properly, and that the heatsink isn`t full of dust.

Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

My computer has become awfully slow after playing Assassin's Creed 2, I was playing then my audio went fuzzy and the fps went down to like 2-3 fps. It has been slow ever since, all my graphics card options reset so I fixed them then tried a registry cleaner.. It worked to some extent but my games are still laggy. I need some suggestions, and my hard drive is clean and I have 4gb of RAM plus an i5, my GPU is a Nvidia GT 540m.

Try running task manager (and resource monitor) to see if anything is suddenly hogging CPU. Another free tool is Process Monitor. It gives a deeper look at what's happening with your machine. You could also try scanning with Malwarebytes Free. It picks up things that other traditional antivirus suites miss. Update the signatures and run a full scan. If these don't help you could try a System Restore to a date/time prior to when the issue first began. If no restore points are availabe you could also make sure your temp files aren't overflowing and you clean out your browser cache.

I bought this PlayStation2-like usb gamepad from cd-r King (a local gadget store here in the philippines). It was perfectly working alright on my windows xp desktop pc.

Now i have a new laptop, windows 7 home premium, and the same gamepad worked fine and was able to play a couple of games with it. Until recently (actually more or less a month ago), it just stopped working. Whenever i plug it, it keeps saying 'USB Device not recognized' and 'Device driver was not successfully installed' and the 'Code 43 error'.

What can i do? I really want to play with it. It worked before, i may just have done or installed something that conflicted with it. I tried it with my friend's laptop (xp) and it was working fine. I also tried another usb gamepad (from the same store but different model) on my windows7 laptop and it worked fine.

It's very strange. I wish someone could help. thanks!

P.S. I searched the web and this forum but no luck. I tried

Hello!

For the past 4 months i have had an issue with my computer suddenly restarting during certain video games, without any bluescreen or anything, so no dump logs either. The past year i have gradually replaced my MB, CPU, GPU, ram and HDD, so the only thing that is older than 6 months is my PSU, a Chieftec Smart Series 550W(which ive had since november 2010). I first only replaced my GPU, without this issue occuring once. I then upgraded my CPU, RAM and MB at the same time, and this is when the problem started. Whenever i tried to play CS-go on max settings the comp would just restart after 5-15 mins of playing. The ram that i had got was faulty, and i got it replaced, but the problem was not gone after that. This issue also occurs ocasionally when i play world of warcraft, it might happend once during 2 weeks. Now i recently also installed GTA5 and the issue also appears to occur here, after 25-45 minutes of playing. With cs-go i managed to get rid of the issue by simply tuning down the graphic settings a little bit. I havent tried this with GTA5, as i dont want to play it with any lower settings. It might be worth mentioning that i can run CS-GO and world of warcraft simontaniously without the issue occuring, i have at least done it for hours and its never happend yet.

Hello. I am having virus and/or malware troubles. When I log into windows everything runs very slow (even before I log in actually) and after awhile a bunch of invisible chrome windows start playing overlapping ads. In task manager I can see a bunch of chrome.exes popping up as well as svhosts.exes. I can stop the ads by selecting the most memory intensive svhost and terminating it, though I tend to get a bsod shortly after that. After uninstalling chrome the audio ads still happen, a bunch of svhosts happen but no more chrome exes. I can turn off the sound of the ads in the volume mixer and the chan is listed as "host process for windows services". I've ran scans with avira, malwarebytes, and avg (trying avast next) and they all result in a bsod halfway through the scans. I've successfully ran them in safe mode without bsods though bsods still happen in safe mode with networking. After running both malwarebytes and avg in safemode and restarting and logging in normally I got a bsod quickly that said "iqnl not less or equal" (hardware issue?).
Logged back in after the iqnl bsod without an immediate blue screen.
Btw, two weeks ago I realized something was up with my computer when I got sudden ransomware (FBI moneypak virus thing that tries to turn on my camera and lock me out).

I know the devices themselves work as I have plugged them into other computers and they worked there, but on this specific computer no such luck. It is not muted. The drivers show that they are working properly. I've reinstalled the drivers anyway. I've set the default device to that of my speakers. I have updated everything from BIOS to Chipset.

After that I tried searching for some clue or advice on the internet to no avail. Then I tried the windows troubleshooter and Microsoft fixit tool. Neither could find anything wrong.

The computer came new out of the box with two sound card drivers installed. Which are IDT High Definition Audio CODEC and AMD High Definition Audio Device. Which are both under Sound, Video and game controllers in the device manager. Under Audio inputs and outputs it shows the following: Digitial Output (S/PDIF) (IDT High Definition Audio CODEC), Speakers/Headphones (IDT High Definition Audio CODEC ), and Stereo Mix (IDT High Definition Audio CODEC). It is the speakers/headphones I want to use as that is my default device. When I click on those the driver is listed as Audio Endpoint and that the device is working properly.

A:Computer stopped playing sound after update

First thing, check the Sound Panel, Playback section. Your "Speakers" should be set as the default audio playback device. If it has changed to some other device that could be the problem.

Your PC sound "card" (actually a chip on the motherboard) is the IDT High Definition Audio Codec. The AMD High Def is the audio for HDMI. Which is another issue, if you have an HDMI cable plugged in, Windows will automatically change the default audio playback device to the HDMI.

If the playback device is set properly to the "Speakers", try resetting the sound by uninstalling the IDT in the Device Manager (DO NOT also uninstall the drivers). Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will reinstall the sound. If there were some Windows corruption with the sound this will fix it.

Hi, I have been battling an issue where i keep on getting forwarded to webpages that I don't mean to go to, and are related to the webpage i was just on.

Other times, sound starts playing that sounds like a commercial in webpages that shouldnt have anything playing on them.
I ran MSE, Super Antispyware, Spybot, and Malware Bytes all in Safe Mode with no success.

Thank you for any help.

Hello!

Well, I have had SRS sandbox installed and working perfectly for a few months now. Last night, upon restarting my Laptop, it no longer worked! It only produces horrible static and crackling sounds. This only occurs when SRS Sandbox is enabled. This literally happened upon a restart of my laptop, and I have no clue what could be causing this. I have done everything I can to try and fix this, including playing with the preferences in the options tab of the SRS Snadbox, Playing with the sound settings, and I still get absolutely nothing. Anyone have any suggestions? Your help will be greatly appreciated!

SRS v. 1.10.2, driver v. 1.10.1 (apparently the newest driver)
my sound: ATI High Definition Audio Device, IDT High Def. audio CODEC, SRS filter
(all drivers updated and working properly)

Please let me know if I need to give you any more info on my comp.

A:SRS Sandbox suddenly producing only static and crackling sounds!!

Have you tried a System Restore back to a date when it worked properly? If not give that a try. System Restore can be accessed from Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools. Select an available restore date when it did work properly. System Restore will not delete any user data or e-mails but if any programs or updates were installed or uninstalled they will have to be redone. System Restore also has an "undo" feature that you can use if it doesn't help.

Sounds Stopped Working I have windows XP and very suddenly, the startup and shutdown sounds of windows XP stopped working. Then, suddenly (and I don't know if this is related), the same day, Quicken program sounds stopped, too.

I have repaired windows, and no luck.

Strangely enough, I am able to play "wave, mp3, and other sound files in my Media player and Realplayer.

When I go to Control panel, Sounds, and press one of the sounds under the Windows schemes and press the little arrow play button, NO sound is present.

Does anyone know what is happening and how I can fix?

I don't see any yellow question marks in device manager and everything says it's working fine. I checked my cables to my computer and they are firmly in the sound card. I do have sound, as evidenced by the playing of the wav files, but not for some system sounds, and now, not for Quicken

I don't know what caused this; the sounds(in my headset) suddenly stop then resume again. I'm sure that it isn't caused by lag or other internet related issues, I'm using the same headset after my computer has been replaced entirely and my past OS is WinXP. But my speaker works fine and doesn't encounter that problem, I also used that in my past WinXP pc.

Am I encountering some incompatibilities?

I have had this laptop for three years and suddenly it has started making "boing" sounds when I open IE10 and each time I click a link. Different sound also now made when I open Outlook 2010. These started after recent Windows updates so I have restored to a point before they were downloaded and I am still getting the annoying sounds. I have changed all the sounds to NONE wherever there is an option in control panel. I even activated Sound Sentry in ease of access to 'no sounds'. I have read a few other forum members with a similar problem and have tried all the suggested solutions but I still get the sounds. The only way I can stop them is if I mute my speakers. I uninstalled Malwarebytes because one tip was that this may cause the sounds - otherwise no new hardware and no new software. Help!!!! please!

A:Suddenly getting sounds when I click links in IE10 and Outlook 2010

Malwarebytes does not cause any extraneous sounds. I have Malwarebytes installed (and running) in my Recording studio PC. When I record, I disable the internet but do not touch Malwarebytes and it does not cause any sounds or interfere with recording.

What do you have listed under Sound in the Device Manager? You should have your specific sound module (e.g. RealTek, IDT, etc) and possibly Intel HD Audio (for HDMI sound). If you have something else, such as "HD Audio Codec" that MAY be what is causing it.

This is what my Sound panel looks like, I can't have any system sounds when recording.

When I start up my computer, it loops an error sound over and over again, but with no error on-screen message. I have determined that when I go into services.msc and shut down the Windows Image Acquisition service, that makes the error noise stop - but then of course my scanner stops working.

What should I do to resolve this? Why would the WIA service be involved with a startup continual error sound with no on-screen message? Does the WIA service need to be fixed and is there I was for me to do that?

Thanks.

A:Startup error sounds until WIA services stopped?

WIA is a manager. You need to find out what the culprit is that is causing errors. That means it is the Scanner driver/software is what is causing the problem. WIA started to be used in Windows ME as a way of managing imaging hardware IRQ's.

The speaker system consists of a subwoofer and left/right speakers. My speaker configuration is at 5.1, and they are set to the default format "24 Bits, 48000 Hz (Studio Quality)." I'm not sure what is causing the problem but I'd love to resolve it.

Any help is much appreciated! Thanks =)

Answer Match 50.82%

Hello,

I'm not sure if the problem is with Windows or my sound card so I posted here. A few sound related things on my machine have gone strange:

- The volume icon has disappeared and will not come back. In the taskbar "notification area" "customization" box it is listed as a past item, rather than a current item. I have selected "always show" but it doesn't show. I can still get to it via the control panel.

- No windows sounds are playing (eg startup jingle, dings, etc). I have played around with the "sounds" box in "sounds and audio devices", to no avail. At the bottom of this box there is a little "play" button so you can play sounds that you have selected - this is greyed out and does not work.

- There is no sound in Flash movies, which is how I discovered the problem.

mp3s and wavs play fine, as do movie files like divx and avi. That's why I think it's a problem with Windows and not my sound card.

I am running SP2 on a A64 machine with 1Gb of RAM so performance shouldn't be an issue, and in fact it wasn't because everything was working fine a couple of days ago. I have tried uninstalling everything I installed before the problem occurred. I have reinstalled the Flash player. I have checked the settings in Administrative tools / Services / Windows Audio, which was a fix I found somewhere. Nothing works.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

I really Need Help

A:No sounds when playing Flv Videos

What player are you using. Suggest you uninstall the codec pack, then try the following.

1) Use VLC. VLC will play flv out of the box, no extra software needed.

2) If you want to play them in MPC, you'll need FFDShow.

3) If you want to play them in WMP, then in addition to FFDShow, you'll need an FLV splitter. You can download Gabest.

I would suggest you first diagnose your PC audio, then if everything is alright, try VLC. After that you can try out the other options.

I used to have an older, HP Pavillion (don't ask me which one I have no idea) and the headphones worked great on that. On my current computer, however, the only sound that will go through the headphones are the test sounds. So I plug them into the speaker jack in the back, and no sound whatsoever. I go onto the audo devices panel and there are three devices on there. There is "Digital Output (S/PDIF)", "Communication Headphones", and "Speakers/Headphones". My headphones are still plugged into the speaker jack in the back and I disable the Digital Output device. The headphones start working, but the volume is really low, even on 100% power. I plug them into the heaphone jack on the front of the case and they still aren't working. I notice that all three devices are run by the same audio controller, IDT High Definition Audio CODEC. I then go onto the device manager to see if there are any driver updates that I need to install and I notice that there is another audio controller listed; AMD High Definition Audio Device. For whatever reason, this controller is disabled and when I go onto the properties it does not allow me to enable it (the enable button is grayed out).

At first it didnt want to play Youtube/computer sounds now this isnt a really big problem but it fixed itself after a while (i just started up and the sounds were there again).

Now everytime i start up a program (A game for example) it gives me no sound of the game, or just a couple of sounds this is very frustrating!

Could someone help me out? Thanks in advance

Actually, it's both my startup and shutdown music aren't playing. It's not as if I am overly concerned, but I wonder if anyone could share some insight. I just reinstalled windows a few weeks ago, and I don't remember the default music playing either, as I've set my own sounds to play--but they're not.

If I can, get any help--that's awesome! Thanks!

If not, I'll live. (I promise.)

If all other sounds are working ok then go to control panel and sounds. while there verify the startup and shutdown sounds are infact set.

I'm running XP Home on my laptop and suddenly, none of my theme sounds will play. They play fine from Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices but I just get bleeps when they should be playing during use.

I had to restart in Safe Mode yesterday and it seems to have stopped working since then.

Anyone got any ideas?

Completely randomly, my mic started only playing the music I was listening to. When I press the push to talk button in Mumble, my friends can only hear the music that is playing on my computer. At first unplugging it and replugging would fix it for a minute. Now it is stuck only playing my sound. Vista Ultimate is my OS. Any suggestions?

So, every now and then, I have a random sound, like a music clip, playing on my computer. I thought it was a weird BF3 thing because it only happened when I was playing bf3 on a certain server.

However, it just happened without bf3 running.

this music clip plays for maybe... ten seconds, and I can't figure out what exactly causes it. any ideas?

Random sounds have been playing in my background. For example, just an hour ago, I could hear a news broadcast followed by a Miley Cyrus song. I open my task manager and noticed a file that stood out named b.exe. I closed the file and the sounds stopped. I opened up to the root folder of b.exe and found it in my Temp folder. Also in it were files labeled A - F. Is this is a virus or spyware of some sort? I ran a full system scan as well as scanned the folder using Norton and found nothing. What are the files that are listed A - F? Need help please.

A:Random Background Sounds Playing?

Hi IdiotSavant,

This is a case of an anti-lock spyware. It was on my rig too this morning same thing! World wide spyware launch! Try deleting the file and then restarting your system. The spyware is really bad for your rig if it is on too long!

Hi, I posted last weekend. I'm really ever on this computer on the weekends to work on my homework.  I had a great helper, who had me download and run all sorts of things to try to clear up my issues.  Unfortunately, it didn't fix the issue.  It sounds as though there's an ad or video playing, but it's choppy like it's not playing correctly.  The thing is, I had no sites open at that point, and when it is happening, there are never sites where a video is playing open at all!  I put the speakers on mute so I don't have to deal with the noise, but when the computer is doing this, everything runs super slowly.  What can I do to fix this bleeping computer?!

A:sounds like ads playing, no site open

What I ran last weekend (according to what is now on my desktop: minitoolbox, adwcleaner, jrt, and fss.  No improvements.  I really don't want to have to buy a new computer right now.  But I need a computer for my PhD program.  And this one is now having issues opening and running things.  I keep having to restart it, but when i do, half the time it doesn't boot back up. It just goes indefinitely to a black screen, but the white mouse is visible and movable.

As the Title says.

My Speakers and Internal Speakers along with the Microphones are screwing up.

This problem only started today, I haven't got a clue why and I haven't changed any settings whatsoever, Everything was working fine until one moment they weren't.

I've gone into Sound to try and fix the issue, I set my Sounds as Default for the headset, and I still have them playing through both, and I did the same for the Microphone, only on that one.

In Playback Devices, Speakers / Headphones is one and Communication Headphones is another, even if I disable the first, I can't get the second as Default for both, it won't let me have Default Device for only the Communication Headphones.

Under Recordcing it's much the same issue except the first one is Internal Mic, it's allowed me to put the Microphone / Line In as Default, except it won't pick up sounds from the Mic, only the Internal Mic even if it's not enabled.

So any help would be useful, searched your other threads 4 or 5 on here and none have been helpful in fixing my issue as they're different to mine, so please don't revert me to another thread.

A:Headset Mic & Sounds Playing At The Same Time

First thing, do you have the correct Dell sound driver. Non-Dell sound drivers tend to not work or not work correctly. This is the correct Dell IDT sound driver:
Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States]
The "Speakers" should be the default playback device. In the Recording section along with the mic you should have the System Mixer (could be called Stereo Mix) and that should be the default recording device.

I'm not sure about the IDT, but many systems have a sound device control panel, located in the Control Pane/Hardware and Sound and they can be configured for both headset and speakers at the same time or configured that the headset mutes the speakers.

The situation is, I want to put a CD in my computer and play Halo Wars' soundtrack while playing some StarCraft 2. Of course, not to bother anyone, I plug my headphones. The problem occurs once I enter the game. Everything goes well until that moment, everything is playing in my headphones and suddenly, booms, the speakers of my computer starts playing everything and I don't seem to be good enough with the volume mixer to be able to make it all go into the headphones. Thanks for help.

A:Problem about playing sounds in my headphones only

Canada, welcome to Sevenforums!

Wow, this is very very strange. If I assume your are playing the audio cd in the drive, and starcraft is loaded on your computer without needing a CD, am I assuming correctly? That is a lot of music, do you have Starcraft music disabled?

Without knowing very much about your computer, you might simply look for a place on your speakers to plug headphones in and use your speakers (speakers>headphones) as your only audio output. Or you might consider unplugging the speakers and plugging in the headphones.

Any other function would have to be through software. So you would have to look up your audio device's software (and windows standard audio controls) and change any other settings through them. Make sure your audio driver is up to date.

To start, hello. I'm new to these forums, and I joined because I need Windows 8 support.

About a week ago, I was wondering how I went about enabling the Startup sound to play. I discovered that in order to have any Startup sound playing, the option needed to be checked in Control Panel > Sounds. Coincidentally, I found that the Windows Logon/Logoff options were missing, so I went into the registry and changed the necessary 1's to 0's, and now they appear as they should. However, when I select a sound for them, it doesn't play when I log on. It is important to note that I'm under the impression that the Logon sound and Startup sound are two different things. The Startup sound I found that I could not change without messing up Metro, so I left it as the default Windows Vista/7 sound that plays. But if I am correct, there should also be a sound played when you log in or log off.

So, in short, how do I get the login/logoff sounds to play?

A:Login/logout Sounds Not Playing

Hello Kyle, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Unfortunately, the log on/off sounds have been hard coded to be disabled in Windows 8 to help improve the performance and security during startup.

As you have already found, there's that method to add these sound events back into Sounds, but they will still not function. I was going to do a tutorial on this myself, but it was pointless to add them back when they will still not play.

There's currently just no way to get these sounds to play.

I'm Running E-Machines with XP 2000+ Win XP with Vinyl AC' 97 soundcard. When I woke up from my nap today and tried to play some mp3's using winamp, it doesn't play and prompts saying "Bad DirectSound Driver. Please install proper drivers or select another device in configuration. Error Code: 8878000A"
So I tried playing it through WMP 9 and it doesn't work either an the "!" mark appears on my song list in WMP.

I tried the trouble shooting wizard for sound in control panel and even my system sounds cannot be played. My speakers, cables and power and volumes are all fine but no sound appears. When I went to the Divice Manager and to "sound, video and game controllers" there is a yellow "!" mark on the icon for "Microsoft Kernal Wave Audio Mixer" So I went to the properties and tried to update the driver but that seems to be the lastest driver and from that point on I have no clue what to do. Any help would be appreciated! Please help cause I need my sound to wake me up in the morning for class!
 

A:no sound playing, not even system sounds

I suggest going to the Emachine website, and downloading and reinstalling the appropriate sound driver for your specific model. If that doesn't work remove the device with the error as well as the Vinyl AC97 driver(should be listed in ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS) and reinstall the same driver you downloaded earlier.

Hey again guys!

I think I may have somewhat of a peculiar virus. It seems to play 2 sounds kind of randomly, one is kind of like a deep yelping noise (kind of like youd hear from a dog but deeper in tone) and the other is a weird jingle, like an ice cream truck but its only 3 or 4 notes. I've had it happen both when firefox was open and closed to test so I don't think its a site playing some weird noise. They don't seem to be doing anything malicious but be annoying, but I figured I'd take a log and have you guys take a peek. Thanks!

hey everyone,

Please help, i've searched the interwebs and have not found a solution to my particular problem.

I have connected my Asus K52Jr to my Lg flatscreen via HDMI cable.
the display is awesome and is working on the t.v., but no sound comes out, instead the sound stays with the laptop.

now i know everyone says go set the tv to default device in sound setting from control panel. well if only it were that easy.

when i do go to the list showing the possible sources for my sound, it only shows either my laptop speakers or the other one that has a picture of a t.v., which i assume is what i want. only problem is that it says its not plugged in, even though it is...

i don't know if im missing something, but please help!

i've tried connecting my laptop and then restarting it, but it didnt work. i cant set the tv to default because it says its not plugged in. my audio driver is updated to latest version.

i'll attach a picture showing what i mean.

FYI its not the t.v. or cable as i can play my ps3 and it works normally.

A:No sounds playing on my T.V. when connected to my laptop.

Enable the ati hdmi output, right click on it and set as default device. From that screen shot I see that your speakers are what are enabled and not the hdmi audio. I think that will probably fix it and if not try updating your drivers.

Hello there! I've been looking all over the net and asked my friends and tried out various things, but nothing seems to work and I'm quite clueless as to what to do now to solve this problem.

Before I start, here is the complete list of my computer's specs: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...67&lc=en&cc=ca&dlc=en&product=3462903&lang=en

My computer is identical to what is listed there, except that I have a legit version of Windows XP installed on it instead of Vista. The Vista that came with the computer caused way too many problems and I couldn't do what I wanted with my computer so I decided to use XP till Vista gets some of its stuff fixed. I've installed all the necessary XP versions of the drivers on my computer and everything is working fine and dandy, except for one thing. For some reason, when I record sound using my headset, it also records the sounds heard on the headset at the time of the recording. My speakers aren't on and there's no way the mic could pick the sound up from my headphones, the sound isn't *that* loud. This happens with normal Windows sound recording, Ventrilo, Skype... Everything. If I speak on Ventrilo while listening to music, the music gets transmitted as well even though it's playing from my headphones. The recording used to be fine on Vista and on my old computer where I've always had XP installed. Not really sure what I should try to do now or where to start solving t... Read more

I was using my computer with headphones, then sound only started playing through 1 speaker. They work fine on everything else. I tried to restart my computer, but that didn't do anything. Is there any way to fix this?

A:Sounds only playing through 1 headphone speaker.

If I understand you correctly you had headphones plugged in and when you removed them only one speaker has sound. That sounds like a defective headphone jack. Disconnect the front panel headphone/Mic jack connection on the the motherboard and then see if both speakers are working. If they are that would confirm a problem with the front panel headphone jack.

Hi all,

This is a problem tha cropped up after I had a major failure of my system and needed to re-install XP on a fresh partition. I had a bad memory module and it wiped out windows totally.

Whenever I try to play a sound file (music, video) the system freezes solid. I have to re-boot the system to get it to run. Also when my kids try to play a game from Nick.com, the system also locks up.

I was running the DXDiagnostic program when it froze on the 3rd sound test. I had been using a Santa Cruz sound card, when this first started happening, but now I am using the onboard sound chip with the same results.

This is a fresh (yesterday) install again with the same results. I have the latest drivers for the video card, sound chip, VIA installed. I think the only thing I don't have in yet is SP1. I'm doing that now.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.3

I have had this issue for a while now and while I play World of Warcraft which is a considerably hard game to run on a computer I get sounds coming from the ACTUAL computer itself, possible the motherboard. I would be fine if all it did was beep but in addition I lose control of my character and my computer does not respond to any typing I put. I have no idea what this issue is, I use a wireless keyboard and mouse and have been told it could be the singles crossing.

I have noticed that when I type in many commands at once that the beeping happens more often, however not always and sometimes light key commands can trigger it. This problem ONLY occurs while I'm playing this game and at no other times nor other games.

All of my drivers are updated and I have already reinstalled the game. I also don't play with the sound.

I'm not great with computers so let me know if you need any other information, I'll give you all that I can find atm

Comp Specs go as:

-Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.66GHz

A few days ago I noticed that my Windows Start and Exit Windows sounds weren't playing at all. They were playing before, so I have no idea why they would suddenly stop working. I also noticed some other strange occurrences, including Windows booting unusually fast (i figured this might be why the sound wouldn't play, ie. it didn't have time to, but now I'm not so sure), shutting down unusually slow, icons that are supposed to be in the taskbar aren't, and when the desktop first appears after startup, the right-click menu appears, even though I didn't summon it. I looked in the sounds section of the Control Panel to make sure all the paths were correct, and they were. They even played when I pressed the play button to preview them. Also, I noticed that the maximize sound doesn't play either. Every other System Sound I can think of plays fine, though. When I double-checked the Control Panel under sounds again this afternoon, I got curious and decided to change the startup sound to see if it would work then. upon pressing 'browse', however, I noticed that the directory reset to C:\WINDOWS\Media. This should not have happened, as I have been using a custom sound scheme. I still haven't tried to see if other startup sounds would work, but i will tonight, because right now I don't really feel like rebooting again. If anyone has any suggestions, i'd be glad to hear them!

i downloaded the drivers again for the audigy 2

I decided to power off my computer and change the PCI slot, when windows booted back up i re-installed the audigy 2 drivers, it then asked to re-boot again which i did, still it seemed to install ok at the time, it`s still just beeping.......

so i tried to tackle it from another angle........

I went into the bois and enabled the AC97 audio codecs for the Nvidia onboard sound to perhaps work........

everything looks ok, the speaker icon loads and when i double click it the windows mixer console appears to be normal, same with default audio device within control panel / sounds, although no sound, just beeps coming from my computer when i get a pop up for example........

MP3 files such as music are played good. Ive got standard built in mobo audio card VIA AC'97.
Second thing is about movies, when I download some short ones from internet (e.g. 30sec) which are avi or mpg, or wmv. I play one of them and everything is played too fast (i think about 2x). After several reopening the file or player everything is correct. What should I do about it?? I think its about codecs. Which one you prefer?? Should I install some megapack or what??

If after I turn on my computer and log into my account, I log out of the account completely, and log back in, the aforementioned sounds begin to work via the shortcut again.I have checked Sounds and Audio Devices in control panel and verified that the sounds are enabled, and I downloaded TweakUI to verify that "Beep on errors" is checked, and I just don't know what else the problem could be.Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

my sons notebook,an HP G62-b 10sg with core i3,amd mobility 5470g running win7 ultimate has a heat-problem,shutting down frequently when gaming.I tried to clean it,could not get to ventilator cause I can not disassemble/dismantle the machine without destroying it(thank you HP!).well,long story short - I just cut away the plastic covering the vent,cleaned it with vacuumcleaner.so far so good.I installed win 7 on clean formatted hdd.installed all drivers needed.started up the da.. thing but the screen stays black although the system-sounds are playing (that little "I finished starting bleep").
tried everything.no way the display would light up.
installed os again,on oncemore formatted hdd,now it`s telling me that it can not identify the grafics,stops installing driver(from HP homepage) and any other driver (Lan,touchpad,sound) is,in that notebooks "mind" already installed (they are not,it was all clean cause formatted)...
if I just install win7 and nothing else everything is fine,well it`s not - because I can not access internet and video playback stutters.but the display lights up.What am I doing wrong?or is the thing just broken down due to heat? warranty was void before I cut the vent,as it is 2 and a half years old.
any suggestions,anyone?

A:Notebook screen black - sys sounds playing

Did this laptop come with Windows 7 Ultimate or did you purchase the OS and thus installed it?
Best bet for you is to get the HP Recovery CD or DVD for your model it will have all the drivers needed for your model. Basically it will install the HP Factory Windows 7 along with everything that's suppose to go with it. This process takes a few hours to run.

So contact HP Tech support tell them you need the Recovery CD/DVD for Model HP laptop. There is a cost for this so be aware. Then you won't have these issues saying graphic driver stopped because you don't have the correct drivers etc. The HP recovery will have all those installed.

Also with every HP system you get recovery with it but it's on the HD in it's own partition so whatever got installed might have blown out that partition and now you have an issue.
