I switched OS to Ubuntu for about a week, LoL didn't run well in Ubuntu so I reinstalled windows 8. When i open playback devices all I have is NVIDIA HDMI Output (port 0) and (port 1), both of which show unplugged and disabled. I have disabled and disconnected devices set to show, but those are all that show. I have reinstalled drivers, reinstalled windows, downloaded Realtek, enabled onboard audio in BIOS, but nothing has fixed the problem so far. When I boot into Ubuntu via USB, the audio works fine.

I have a soundblaster live soundcard. Periodically, the sound would stop in the middle of playing. I figured out that the card was loose so screwed the card in and the sound returned. But then stopped again. I tried putting the sound card in a different slot but still no sound. Any suggestions?

And it's not just the laptop speakers - it doesn't work when I put headphones in either.

I opened up audacity and as it was loading, all my sound that was playing cut out. I system restored my laptop and it was fixed, and thought it crashing with audacity was just a coincedence, so I reopened audacity. The sound stopped working again. I uninstalled audacity, that didn't work, so system restored it again but this time that didn't work either. I tried an even earlier date but it still didn't work.

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! I have a couple questions regarding how to hook this up/what I need to buy. The monitor only has one VGA IN slot, so I'm wondering if I need something that can switch the input between 360 and computer. Does anything like that exist? Can anyone give me specific details as to what I need to buy to hook my 360 up to my PC monitor? Playing games on my small standard-definition TV is starting to become more and more of a hassle, as everything's so hard to read. Thanks!

About four days ago as of the time of writing this my computer stopped playing sound after a restart with updates installed. That is actually not quite true. The volume mixer shows that it is playing sound, but no actual sound comes out of whatever device I plug in. Speakers don't work, headphones don't work. 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.

Found several similar reports over this and MS's Answers forums with no final resolution/fix to problem. Worse they are dated several years ago and nothing current.

I feel I need to emphasize one-time that this problem only concerns the Startup system sound that plays right after warm or cold boots when the system first arrives at the desktop and _only_ that sound. All other system and program sounds work okay.

Up to 1 or 2 months ago for a couple years now the Startup sound has been playing just fine--then I all of a sudden realized it was no longer playing at all. All other system and program sounds/audio play fine.

1. SFC finds nothing needing fixing.
2. Startup sound check box in Sounds tab is and has always been checked though I do not recall when MS made this a security issue protecting it.
3. Talked to nVIDIA and learned nothing new.
4. Talked to Crucial and learned nothing new.
5. Talked to MS and learned nothing new. They are unaware of problem...even though for some it is a couple years old. MS's best recommendation though, which I might still try at some point because "what could possibly go wrong?" is to run an In-Place Upgrade on Windows 7 which supposedly will restore the OS leaving my programs/data and some customizations(?) in tact.
6. Actual Startup sound wave file apparently resides inside a .dll which iirc is threaded here in sevenforums.
7. I also looked through the Registry searching for "startupsound" and found string i... Read more

Hello,

I wanted to upgrade the drivers of my Moms Laptop which is 2 year old. Buy holiday gone haywire! Here's what I did:

1) Uninstalled all Drivers from Windows XP Add/Remove
2) Flash the BIOS successfully to 2.4 version. Reboot to Windows was normal.

http://www.laptopdriversfreedownlo [...] 32bit.html

4) I started with Chipset, then Video, Network, Sound, and last one was Bluetooth.
Problems:

a) Realtek Sound doesn't show up in the Device Manager (sound device disable).
a) MODEM driver doesn't install (no idea why).

NOTE: before I fiddled with this Laptop, there were no problems (a) and (b) at all.

Now I'm bewildered because I've played with dozens of Laptops (Windows/Linux/Mac) but never encountered such a stubborn problem (It was a lesson learned - never be too confident!!)

I'm not clear where I gone wrong? Assuming, does Acer laptops need drivers to be installed in a particular order? Sorry I'm somewhat new to this make.

Big thanks.

After installing it I configured windows 8 pro build 9200 to play at the start up.
It worked. However after activating the op. sistem it no longer plays the start up sound (any idea ?).
Another thing I have no idea is why Microsoft supressed the log off sound.
Who had the brilliant idea to discontinue the log off sound ?
There should be a tweak to bring it back.

A:Sound just stopped working in Monitor

Where do you plug your headset, a socket on the monitor, or do you unplug the lead from the monitor & plug the headset straight into the computer?

If you plug into the monitor, and the headset works OK, then looks like either the monitor speakers have stopped working, or maybe a little switch in the socket has stuck sending the sound to the headset, & doesn't switch back to speaker when the headset is unplugged.

If you have to plug the headset straight into the computer, then the lead carrying the sound to the monitor might have failed, or the sound circuit inside the monitor has a problem. Or there is a hidden volume control on the monitor that has muted the monitor sound - button, knob or menu option?

I have an Asus laptop running Intel Display Audio and I have it connected to an external monitor via HDMI. I also have external logitech speakers, which for whatever reason, sound a lot better when plugged in to the monitor than the headphone jack of the laptop (which has a much muddier sound). I want to be able to play music when the monitor is off/sleep, however when I do that, obviously the sound turns off. The settings on the monitor were pretty basic and didn't see anything to change it. Is there any workaround?

You could get an hdmi switch that separates out the audio. The one linked below is a example, there are cheaper alternatives too.

In Windows 7 is it possible to set up my sound to play from the monitor the program is displayed? For example a movie playing on the TV would have sound come from the TV until I drag it to my other monitor where the sound would then come from my PC monitor.

Hello there; first time posting here.

I recently accidentally installed 7zip that was bundled with adware, I uninstalled it and removed it with ADWcleaner and MBAM. I noticed that right after installing 7zip, my documentary on YouTube stopped making sound. This problem is only for Google Chrome, and affects all websites on Chrome. I googled this problem, but the only responses were to disable PepFlash. I did so, and that didn't work.

I apologize if this is in the wrong category or is too vague, I've liked to think of myself a safety freak when in it comes to computers, and this is the first time I've installed something bad in many years.

Edit: I uninstalled and reinstalled Flash and it is working now.

Today at work we were trying to do an item lookup and suddenly the screen went black with the 'no input' square on it. Like we usually do, as it happens often, we checked all the cables connecting the monitor to the PC (as closing the till often knocks the cables loose) but nothing was unplugged, and I noticed a strange sound coming from the PC that is hard to explain - sort of like a cross between a buzzing and beeping sound, in the pattern na-na-NA (I feel stupid typing this). We had to do a hard restart of the computer to get it working again, and it booted up very slowly.

We only have 2 registers at work so for one to crash at this time of year is really inconvenient. The computer that did this is also the one we use least, but I have a feeling we had to replace the PC a few months ago for something to do with the receipt printer.

I understand that since this is a work computer you can only provide limited help, as can I only provide fairly limited information about the model etc, however any help at all would be greatly appreciated as our IT guy is fairly slow on these things (and a bit dodgy).

Thanks.

So I recently opened my CPU because it was lagging and I thought maybe a little clean up might do the trick. So I softly brushed the drivers inside the CPU to get some dust off. However, when I turned on my PC, it seems that whenever I watch videos or play games, a loud crackling sound comes out from my speakers. I don't know what is causing this.

I have tried disabling my drivers (sound and display) but to no avail. However, if I mute the volume on my sound driver, the sound disappears. Which lead me to the conclusion that it might be a conflict of sound and display.

Since the problem only occured when I opened my CPU and cleaned it, it might also be a wiring problem or something.

Can someone help me on this?

Hi

I've been stuggling with this for a few hours now and am at the end of my wits..

I've got two audio devices that I would like to link to my PC at once.
I've got one plug connected to the back panel, and one to the front. But one always cuts off the other. In my sound devices, the system registers them both as: "speakers, VIA High Definition Audio, Standard device"

Is there any way that I can connect them both at once, and still have both of them outputting audio?

I hope the internet will save the day!

I've posted this issue before on numerous support fourms, and none of them or I could figure out this issue. It's been driving me nuts.

A couple months ago I cleaned my computer (plugged everything out, cleaned the area/computer, etc.) when I put everything back together and booted up, I had no sound, but the tray icon indicated sound was indeed going through. As far as I knew nothing had been changed. I made sure everything was plugged in correctly, reinstalled the drivers, made sure I didn't click something off I shouldn't have, but still nothing. But then I plugged in headphones into the tower headphone jack, and boom I had sound. I was as surprised as everyone else. Someone suggested then, to rule out a hardware issue, that I download Ubuntu and see if the sound problem occurs there. It didn't, I had sound coming out of my speakers.

I would hate to re-install Win, as I've gone without doing so for five years. But if it came down to it, it's whatever.

I use the on-board sound from my MB, as I've learned over the years sound cards are a thing of the past. But perhaps I could reattach the old one I have? It's sadly over 10 years old however, I don't know if it would be worth trying. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Major cudos if we're able to figure this out once and for all. Good luck

My orbicam stopped working on my Acer computer which has Aspire 5100-5023 on my notebook. After looking up the solution online, here's what I did...which did not solve the problem:

Alt/F10
Hit Restore
selected reinstall applications/drivers
once it was finished, it brought me to a screen where I selected Windows vista. Here's where I think I screwed up. I had three choices to install a driver: Bison Camera Driver, Acer Orbicam Utility Bar (Bison), and Suyin Camera Driver. I've installed the first two at least 3X, and the suyin driver 1x. Nothing is working. Obviously I did not do it correctly.

I think everything needs to be uninstalled, then reinstalled, correct? If so, what do I need to reinstall? Thank you. Confused but think I'm on the right track. Thank you.

Been having major issues playing GTA IV.

First, the sound kept getting cut during gaming. When I exited the game, there was no sound in Windows either. I had to reboot to get sound but after a couple of minutes, the sound cut off again and I wasn't even gaming then. Video playback became really laggy (YouTube played videos as if in slow motion) and there was no sound.

I had to reboot the PC several times. Unisntalled sound card (through Device Manager) and then reinstalled it as well as the latest drivers. Still had same issue when I tried playing GTA IV.

Today, I got consecutive BSODs while playing GTA IV. I've had several issues with GTA IV like missing textures, no sound, freezing (at loading screens), CTD (crash to desktop) etc. Tried reinstalling the game several times from scratch and even tried different hard drive but none of them work(ed).

I'm playing GTA IV heavily modded (Gionight ENB mod with several custom cars/weapons etc.) but my computer is a beast and it should be able to handle it easily.

My specs:

CPU: i7 990X
Mainboard: Asus P6T7 WS Supercomputer
Memory: 12GB Corsair Domintar 1600MHz
Hard Drive: 32GB SLC SSD x2 (RAID-0)
Video: EVGA GTX-580 3GB Tri-SLI
Sound: Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Titanium HD
Power Supply: PC Power & Cooling 1200W
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

The first BSOD was STOP code 0x124 and that was with stock clocks for the GPU. The second BSOD was STOP code 0x1000007e and that was with GPUs OC'd to 850MHz.

Hello there,
I recently swapped out my HD 6450 for a GTX 460 and after about two days I noticed my windows had done a auto-update and rebooting itself and was at my login prompt and my USB keyboard and mouse suddenly were not working at all the keyboard had no lights on either. I then proceeded to reboot the computer when I did this I suddenly had no signal coming from my video card. The card was still running its fan and everything else on the motherboard was running as well but no video.

I then thought it might be a video card problem so I re-installed the HD 6450 and it seems to be doing the same thing.... I have been researching every thing I can possibly find on how to fix this issue however nothing seems to work and im almost thinking the PCI-E slot may be dead however the HD6450 runs its fan directly from the mobo through the slot and when I power the computer up with that card in it the fan spins like normal.

Things I have tried so far...

1. Ensured everything was seated properly and all cords were in the proper places.

2. Reseated / Cleaned any dust off my RAM , HDD , Proccessor , all PSU cords going to mobo as well as USB cords. As well as did a mobo test by removing the RAM and booting to see if it beeped and it did ( with the RAM in place its giving me 1 short beep but thats been like that for a long time ).

I use convertxtodvd to burn the mkv files i have on my computer, I use Nero Recode 2 to copy existing DVD's into copy's.
They all work on the xbox and my PC.

It's not that i desperately need my TV-DVD player to play these things, but if i'm building a DVD collection, i want to know it will play on any DVD player that supports copies. Otherwise I end up with half a collection that will will only play on certain devices and not others that are supposed to support copies.

Thanks.

My (ancient) Packard Bell PC (Windows XP home) has suddenly stopped playing DVDs.
Device Manager gives the '!' in a yellow circle for "H + H DVD-ROM DVD-41SD SCSI CdRom Device" x3 and HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4320B.
When I troubleshoot it tells me to uninstall and then Add New Hardware. I've tried this several times but each time I get this message:
"Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"
I saw an old thread in which someone was able to fix a similar problem by creating a text file to fix the CD Registry. Might this work for me?

My touch screen stopped working. I followed some of the advice on this forum but was unable to find the HID Touch Screen in the Device manager. I then tried to find the driver for the touch screen, but it was not there. I search Acer Drivers, but there was no driver available. Where can i get the driver for the touch screen, or find the maker of the touch screen to download it from their site.

Welcome to the Forum

Make sure mouse pad is still turned on.
On the older acer to turn on or off.

Go to search type device manager and make sure that the driver is up to date

Just yesterday, several keys stopped working on my Acer Aspire s7. I have to bring up the touch screen keyboard to get them to work. They are 5,7,9,-, and a capitol D. Weirdly, the lower case d works. None of the special characters above the malfunctioning numbers work. There wasn't any spill that I know of, but it's certainly possible water got on it somehow. Has anyone had this problem? Does it sound mechanical, IE water or some other kind of damage, or does it sound potentially like some kind of virus? And in the more likely scenario that it IS a water or dirt issue, does anyone know what kind of solution might be possible? Can the keys be easily removed and cleaned? I did already try the compressed air keyboard thing. Any help or ideas are hugely appreciated!

Ok, I think this has something to do with my screen saver. My ACER computer sits for a while and then an alarm goes off. The Message Unspecified error starts in a cascading block down the screen. After about 20 seconds another box pops up and the alarm stops. The new message reads ACER(N-SCR has stopped working. This started yesterday when I downloaded my #3 update to my windows vista 64.

I have read that HP also has this problem, but I have only found mixed results of success. it happened sometime after March 22nd 2015. I believe an update removed the "HID-compliant touch screen" device from device manager, it has just disappeared entirely, i have tried working with usb generic device's drivers, its not listed in there, i have tried enabling the service for HID compliant device, no luck. I have tried going to acer's website for the driver for that model, it is not there. its like they stopped supporting it. help guys, i'm stuck. i need either that driver, a third-party touchscreen software, or something short of restoring it to earlier state.

did all the speakers sound when test in via hd audio deck or windows 7 audio control panel?

if yes, most likely you will need to enable the 'upmix' feature of VIA. I'm not sure what is it called, but in Realtek it is called Realtek Speaker Fill or Dolby ProLogic IIx. If there isn't any, you may want to try Channel Mixer for foobar2000.

Hi there,
After installing SP2 on Win XP Pro my abbility to play music CD has gone. MP3 and webb radio work. With SP1 everything worked perfectly.

Musicmatch hangs totally when playing CD and Mediaplayer continues to respond but after one or two tracks the sounds disappears. When restarting Windows after such a problem I don't hear the normal Windows shutdown "song" but a short "ick"...

Have re-installed Musicmatch a number of times as well as CD-drive and soundcard drevice drivers.

Any idea?

I got the following hw and OS
Quite old Dell XPS T600r with Intel Pentium III, 600MHz and 384MB RAM

A:Playing CD stopped working after XP SP2 upgrade

You didn't open your case at all did yoU?

I know lots of cd-roms come with a cable that connects to the sound card for direct audio, but if you didn't open your case or move it significantly this shouldn't be your problem.

Try going into your device manager and seeing if the cd-rom is still installed correctly. Perhaps SP2 messed it up (if so reinstall the driver)

The title pretty much says it all - except it seems to only happen when I'm on Instagram. I've upgraded to the latest version of flash. Could it be video card related? I have other display issues with this computer.

Edit: it's not just Instagram, it's also Vine. I don't spend much time on social feeds, so it's challenging to track which sites seem to be most affected by this problem, which only manifested within the last month. I thought it might be a bad flash update, but as noted, I've got the most current version.

Hi All

I was running MP9 and a few days ago it refused to play avi's recorded by my digital camera. It will play avi's fromother sources, DVD's etc but not my camera avi's. It playe dthem perfectly until a few days ago.

Same with PowerDVD. It will play everything, no problem, except for these few avi's.

I downloaded and ran GSpot over the suspect avi's to see if there was a codec problem but they all rendered OK and GSpot said they should play OK with the existing setup. Finally I uninstalled MP9 and installed MP10 but there is no change.

The error message I get on MP is "Unknown Error" with a code. Not surprisingly M'soft don't provide much assistance. I see from this and other forums that MP suddenly refusing to play avi's isn't at all uncommon. Can someone please offer suggestions on how/why and how I go about fixing this.

Thanks very much.

A:Media Player stopped playing some AVI's

Try uninstalling and reinstalling the camera software. A codec may have been installed by that installation. Anything unusual in the right-click properties of those files?

A general-purpose codec that will play most avi's is the DirectShow ffdshow:

I was going through unnecessary files on my computer, and I deleted some Apple related files that I thought I didn't need. Quicktime stopped working, so I had to reinstall it. Since I'm using Windows XP the newest version won't work, so I had to download an older version. I'm not sure what version I had before I messed it up, I think it was 7.3.0. So I downloaded that, and now it won't play files smoothly that it had played smoothly before I uninstalled it. My settings are the same as far as I can tell.

However after restart many system functions are no longer working. I can no longer access task manager. either CTRL+ALT+DEL or win-r wont bring it up. Tried MSCONFIG and again it wont start after I enter the keys. System restore similarly won't start after I click the bottons.

Sounds like the reboot came up in safe mode. Try a shutdown, restart to see if it clears up. Rebooting while in something as intensive as a virus scan / repair is seldom safe. You should always let it continue until it's finished, even if inconvenient.

Hello friends.

This is the first time this has ever happened so, I'm quite stomped. Today, my Launch Manger stopped working. In the past, an uninstall and reinstall of the product fixed the issue when it rarely occurred (only times in the past 8 years) Today, however, I've ran the full gambit of assault on uninstalling and registry clearing. I used Revo Unistaller Pro to uninstall Launch Manager and used CCleaner to clear old registry strings and and still nothing! Each time I attempt to reinstall the program, it still doesn't work.

The OSDRC and OSDRC2 folders that normally house these image files:

are now completely empty:

I've tried simply copying and pasting the files over to no avail. There's something in the coding that's not calling the proper files to be used and I have not a clue on where the hiccup is. The [Fn] function key combos still work. The process just isn't using the visual image files as indicators.

Launch Manager is listed as a start-up item in CCleaner but, it does not point to a file that's supposed to be starting..

Task Manager does not list Launch Manager as a start-up item at all.

I checked to make certain Normal Startup was selected in msconfig and it was and that didn't help. Now I am completely lost.

The wizard could find no better driver than what is already being used. I DO NOT get an error message. I just don't get anything to show up either under My Computer or in Media Center or Media player. This stumps me.

I've not long had Vista (Home Premium) and the windows media player that came with it used to play the .ts files that I'd exported from my digibox hard drive. Then - for apparently no reason - Media Player decided that it was no longer going to open the files, not even the ones that it had opened previously. It came up with the cood1199 error, but I don't understand why it's stopped playing them as it used to. It's infuriating. I don't want to have to download another program to play them when Media Player should - as it *did* - play them. Is there anything that I can do to get it to play what it used to play?

Have you tried a system restore back to when you know this worked or is this to far in the past? Have you tried to play the files with something like Realplayer. I know that you want to use WMP long term but this would confirm that it is a WMP issue.

Also found this link if it helps.

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.

Hello! I have a small issue. Basically, I have a Compaq desktop for about five years now. I've never had a problem with my computer before until my speakers stopped working.

I turned on the subwoofer and find that I still cannot hear anything. I restarted and turn off my computer twice and reconnect the sound system twice and still no sound. I just don't know what to do at this point. I'm hoping I'm missing something small and was hoping you could help me figure it out.

Not knowing what you did, all we can do is guess and try to help you.

Not sure if System Restore (back to an available restore date that is before whatever you did) will help or not, but one option to try.

Uninstalling/reinstalling the RealTek will probably do it. Actually just installing the latest RealTek will first uninstall the existing, have you restart the PC (Important step do not bypass this) and then will do a new install.

I seemed to have easily solved the problem - it would not boot up on battery without all of the screws on the bottom of the case replaced. I guess this thread could serve as a quick answer for someone in the same situation though! I panicked too quickly.

Just ordered a brand new V15 Nitro Black Edition (Skylake). I turned it on, set up Windows 10, everything was working perfectly. I had also ordered an m.2 SSD, so I decided to pop the laptop open and install it. Installation seemingly went smoothly, but now the laptop won't boot without the power adapter plugged in. It seems like the battery must have come disconnected? Not really sure where to start, I don't see any loose cables on the inside of the case. I removed the SSD to see if it wasn't playing nicely, didn't make a difference. Help!!!!

Solved!

Hi all,

This issue really bugs me, every few months it'll happen, one of my three screens (9/10 times it's the Acer), will display as a "Generic Non-PnP Monitor", with this it'll only display in 640*480 (usually 1920*1080, same as the other 2 screens).

This set up works perfectly most of the time, and has done for the last few years, but as I said it comes and goes. I've done a lot of research online and the best advice I can find is that when it happens if I unplug it all, and let the capacitors drain in the monitor and GPU then when reconnecting everything it'll work fine. I've done this before and it's not worked, I've also done it and it's worked. I've also had it in the past where it's just reverted back to how it's supposed to be mid use.

My set up:
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
CPU: Intel Core i7 3770 @ 3.40GHz
Motherboard: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. CM6330_CM6630_CM6730_CM6830
Display 1: SONY TV ([email protected])
Display 2: Samsung S24B300 ([email protected])
Display 3: Acer S240HL ([email protected]) <--- Displaying as "Generic Non-PnP Monitor ([email protected])"
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series

I've got the latest drivers for all the hardware, I've got the latest windows updates for everything. I've tried older versions of the drivers for the GPU, no difference with the issue.
I've been to the Acer website to download a driver specifically for the monitor, but they haven't got one on there for this montior on this OS, j... Read more

You can try forcing the install of the vista 64 bit driver, you pick update driver then follow the yellow steps and if you get the bottom picture if its unsigned just pick install anyway.

Good luck

I've had this problem since like 2 years and i havent been able to solve it, yes reinstalled OS more than 15 times, DDU drivers, reinstalled drivers, tried beta drivers, tried old driver, cleaned up the dust inside laptop, windowed, fullscreen game, disabled some services, disabled TDR on registry, delay TDR on registry (it just makes windows freeze for the time i put on the registry, example TdrDelay = 10 sec, windows freezes for 10 when TDR happens in dota), reduce dota 2 graphic settings, ccleaner, advanced systemcare, SFC/SCANNOW , verified files, (There was this time where i was messing with my pc trying to fix this issue where i thought ive fixed it because whenever the TDR happened dota 2 would freeze but it would run again like nothhing happened and i could still play but somehow then it didnt last long)

installed new version of dota 2 called reborn and for some reason it didnt crash for some 2 months and now whenever i play this new one it crashes the whole windows and i need to restart PC

There was a BSOD too where i disabled google chrome hardware acceleration or something like that and when i got to a page like dailymotion my computer froze and i had to restart.

The couple of thing i havent tried is Thermal paste because my laptop is very hard to open GPU wise. but i doubt thats the problem because the BSOD from dota started when i recently bought the Laptop like after 1 - 2 weeks

(Some stuff on the ZIP are in spanish, im from mexico)

A:BSOD playing Dota 2, driver stopped responding, etc .....

Please use the tool again, the zip file doesn't have any dump files.
Also, in your windows partition go to the folder windows. There you can find a folder called minidumps, it is the folder where the dump files are saved. Check if there are any dump files in that folder.

Hello there guys, I am having a real problem with my Windows Media Player 11 playing .avi files.

My digital camera records videos and they have played on my machine with WMP no problem at all until yesterday. When I click on the file to play it it says "Window Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file. For additional assitance, click Web Help."

I have had had a good around and I can't resolve this problem. The problem seems to have occured since I installed DivX Player, Codec etc.. (the installer package). Since then I have tried uninstalling it to go back to how it was and also tried doing a system restore to the point before but still the same problem.

Don't know what to do but this problem also effect Windows movie maker, it won't player the avi files in there either, please help.

Hi,

I am trying to play a DVD movie that I burned about a year ago. It has always worked previouly, but now when I try to open it from Autoplay or from Computer, I get a message telling me that Windows Explorer has stopped working. Can you help me with this one?

As always, thank you and

A:Windows Explorer has stopped working when playing movie DVD

Good Evening Folks:

I am having a problem with Windows Explorer and WMP11. I have the original King Kong movie that I downloaded and burned over a year ago. Every so often I drag it out just for the enjoyment of watching it again. This time, however, when I attempt to play it I get a message telling me that WMP11 has stopped working. If I try to open the files on the disk the message tells me that Windows Explorer has stopped working and will have to restart.
When I first started to dig into this problem I was because I was getting a message telling me that the DEP had stopped working. That has been cured by disabling DEP, but now it is Windows Explorer that stops working. There are also a few other glitches that have appeared such as a language bar that appears on the screen whenever the UAC window opens and an internet connection that will not run in protected mode even though that function is enabled. I have scoured the net and have seen a number of people who associate this problem with the installation of Vista SP2? If this is the case I will dump SP2 even if it means reinstalling the O/S.
I'm running a 32 bit Vista Home Premium O/S.
Any comments will be greatly appreciated.
Regards

So I get TDR and BSOD whenever I play a graphically intensive game. Doesn't have to be much, though. I tried to play Mafia 2 and I got TDR. The same with Dishonored, CS:GO, and a whole mess of other games.
I've already set the PhysX to my graphics card rather than auto, so if you were going to say that, don't.

Note: My GTX 660 is by OC'd by Gigabyte, thought I'd point that out.

A:BSOD/TDR playing Far Cry 3, display driver stopped working.

Erm, this doesn't make sense. You have a Geforce card, so why do I see ATI drivers also loaded? You may wanna do some cleanup of your drivers to ensure you don't have any conflicts. A good way to see loaded drivers is using Autoruns. Don't use it to remove drivers, but to check a list of those intended to load at Windows startup. Also good is to check Programs & Features on control panel and uninstall unnecessary items.

Otherwise, I don't have good data on this. One of the 3 crashdumps present did report that the TDR timeout was caused by insufficient resources to complete a DirectX API call, but I can't ascertain how this happened from just a minidump. Try running Driver Verifier and provide us new crashdumps.

EDIT: I just noticed the ATI crash was from back in Oct, with two other crashdumps from Nov and December. Have you changed your video card recently? I assume you were also getting timeouts from the previous card?

"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

Any other suggestions? I emailed gateway about the problem a couple of weeks ago and they sent a link to reinstall the driver and it worked for a few weeks. Then a couple days it started getting crackly again so I reinstalled the driver and it was fine...but now this past week it's been doing it like crazy and now it seems like it's not even taking to fixing it for more then like 10 minutes.

Is there anything else I can do before I have to send it into Gateway AGAIN!

A:Re-installing sound driver no longer helping crackly sound

You could always buy a sound card. I'm assuming you're using an onboard one right now, so if you buy a sound card you'll have better quality sound, if you buy a good one, and it could speed up your games a bit, if your CPU is the bottleneck, since the card does the soundwork instead of the CPU. But if you don't want to do that you could try reinstalling windows. If that doesn't work you'll probably have to send it back to gateway.

I've encountered a mysterious problem that has drastically affected my enjoyment of my computer. Please help if you can.

Starting yesterday, I noticed that most video files (about 90%) stopped playing correctly on my computer. This occurs whether the video is streaming from an internet source or played directly from a file on my hard drive.

The affected files are .avi, mpeg, mpg, wmv, asf

When played the files are slow and choppy and the sound is full of pops and cracks. Video files without sound and audio files seem unaffected.

This occurs when files are played through Windows Media Player (10) or RealPlayer (v.10). Quicktime Player appears to be unaffected. The same file will play fine if it has an extention QT can handle.

The files themselves have not been corrupted. I was able to prove this because I can play the very same files remotely with the same programs (WMP10 and RP10) from a second computer on my Home Network.
Also, files streamed from the internet are affected as well. For example if I try to watch a news video or a moive trailer the sound is significantly degraded when played through WMP or RealPlayer.

So, something has changed with my windows setup that is affecting the way the computer handles these files.

I had a virus issue that I dealt with by running many spyware and virus programs yesterday. I don't think it's related but I can't help but wonder

A:On board sound gone after installing Sound Blaster Audigy Fx...

Hi: See if your BIOS has an onboard audio setting. If it does, it may have automatically gone to disabled when you installed the add on video card. Check the options you have for the onboard audio setting. If it is on Auto or Disabled, change it to Enabled, save the setting where you made the change, and again when you exit. The sound should work on both devices then. And if the audio card doesn't work with the onboard audio setting on enabled, then change it to Auto if the onboard setting had been on disabled.

Hi guys,

I decided to purchase a Samsung LED monitor and have connected it up to my pc using a HDMI cable. I recieve the picture on the screen but no audio, been spending the majority of today trying to solve the issue but have landed short.

My set up is a AMD A10-5800K APU, 8 GB ram and using windows 7 64 bit. The monitor I purchased is a Samsung LED monitor T32E310EX.

Currently the speaker symbol has an x next to it, when I click it it tries to fix the problem. When I right click it and go to playback device it shows Digital Audio HDMI (High Definition Audio Device) as my default device but no sound bars next to it. If anyone could help me out that would be great thanks

What is going on it has to be something simple I am looking over.

Hi there,

This morning my laptop keyboard started playing up - ten of the keys have stopped working altogether (as far as I can tell anyway - there may be other function buttons not working but there are ten of the alphabetical keys not working - these are A C D F G H M N S X) Oh, and having just checked the , . / < > ? and CAPSLOCK keys aren't working either ... balls.

Obviously this is quite irritating as it makes the keyboard unusable - I've looked around and can't see any obvious solutions online. I've had no spillages that would cause this or any bumps or anything that I can recall .... I've plugged a USB keyboard in for now to make this post but obviously that's not ideal either.

I'm stumped so wondering if anyone could offer a bit of advice or inspiration!

You could try removing and reconnecting the keyboard as the connector may be partly loose; I've seen that on many models and Dell and Lenovo both had entire lines of laptops where the connection would just come loose and simply had to be reconnected.
