I have 3 plug in in the back of my computer one speaker i can unplug and hook up my head phone and it work fine. But when i hook the head phone to the plug in the front of my computer and i listen to a song like a rap music i might hear the 1st rapper but the 2nd and 3rd rapper i dont hear but i can hear the beat and everthing the 1st rapper is raping. And some video i hear alot static. Also i just had new motherboard put in could that be it.

A:head phone dont work right

You probably have 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound, so this gives out different parts to each speaker/plug.

You need to go into your sound preferences and change it to stereo sound.

sounds like a bad connection on one of the channels for the front jacks. Check the connections and make sure they're tight and check the wires for breaks.

You could also check settings, but the static sounds to me like it's more likely a bad wire or bad connection.

I have a studio xps 16 running vista 64-bit service pack 2. the other day i was on skype and skype mutes all other audio on the computer when on. i ended up uninstalling skype and my built in webcam because i read that together they sometimes screw up audio. so the next day i tried to listen to music, no luck. I ran a diagnostics and when it got to the colored bars and asked if i heard a beep I HEARD THE BEEP so that means the problem is a system problem and not a screwed up sound card. (i think) anyway i updated all of the drivers, the device manager has no ? marks. i talked to dell and the found a virus that MAY have been eating away at my registry. i got rid of that and still no audio. i didnt really wanna touch the regedit because im nervous cuz u can really f up a computer if your not sure what your doing. i also did a system reboot to about a week before it happened with no luck. by the way, under the device manager it says> Sound, video and game cotrollers and then my options are> ATI Function Driver for High Definition Audio - ATI AA01 and> IDT High Definition Audio CODEC

So any ideas guys? i dont wanna re-download the os and start over so what now??

A:Help please my Dell laptop(internal speakers) dont work all the time only sometimes

The jack where you plug in your headphones probably turns the speakers
off when the headphones are plugged in.
Over time,this causes wear to the jack and it does not make contact
properly,so the audio is not being passed to th speakers.
You can have the jack replaced(expensive?), or use a set of USB powered
external speakers.
BTW,not a good idea to bang on a laptop.

 recently bought a Dell latitude E6420 i5-2520M 8GB and I am experiencing a very annoying issue with the speakers.
The sound coming from the speakers worked until I plugged in the headphones jack into the computer for the first time - when I unplugged the headphones internal speakers stop to work completely.
What I have tried so far with no success:

Uninstall and reinstall windows audio/sound drivers
Tried Realtek drivers
Disabled headphones
Recovery and reinstall Windows 10

What is strange is that every time I uninstall and reinstall the sound drivers the speakers start to work again until i plug the jack of the headphones and again speakers stop to work. Any Idea?
Please let me know what you need to know about my computer to better understand the problem and I will amend the question accordingly.

A:Dell latitude E6420 - plug headphone jack in stop internal speakers to work

I resolved installing windows native audio drivers
Apparently, this is a known issue with the Realtek drivers on the Dell Latitude.

any advice to help me with this?
and another problem as well, how can i fix a missing video controller?

A:Speakers dont work

You should give specifics about Dell model and the operating system. but in general (about sound)

If you have front and rear jacks it makes a difference what you plug into /and seeing if there's a front/rear jack config for the Sound devices

The two different sound devices means you;ve installed two different methods for generating the sound on your computer. (You'd find them both listed in Device Manager as installed devices)

Do make sure (for sure XP, not sure vista) which you choose as your default device as that's the sound device being used each time you reboot the computer.(I think is in Control Panel -> Sound/Playback)

/*********** Edit **************/

Is this a USB cable modem? If so ,it is probable that it has stolen resources which your sound card needs (Such as the IRQ number). The modem is much more likely to tolerate alternative setup than the sound card so try changing its resources in device manager.

Go to your device manager (start/settings/comtrol panel/system/hardware/device manager) and click the + to the left of "sound, video and game controllers".

Do you see any red or yellow warning marks in anything in there?

If you do, right click on the device, choose "properties", then click "driver", then "Update driver".

Hey guys, I installed a radeon gigabyte 6850 graphics card in to my computer a long time ago and after I made the switch from Nvidia to Radeon my input jacks and output jacks stopped working. Usually I can live with it and use my laptop or phone for skype but I've just bought a game on steam and I can't use steam voice chat on a different system then play on my gaming system at the same time and playing games with my friends without voice chat is unacceptable.

When I plug a mic in it says its working and it shows up in realtek hd audio but when i try to use it with anything it doesnt work. The bar doesnt even go up when i test it in windows 7 so it must be muted. I've tested the mic with a laptop before so it definitely works. I've reinstalled realtek hd drivers.

I think the problem is I'm using hdmi to connect my tv and use it as a monitor and apparently using hdmi sound from amd cards mute all other sounds. I need the speakers on my tv as they are my only speakers, and buying new speakers or a sound card is not a possible option right now. And even if I could get speakers, my tv only connects via hdmi anyway so the sound would still be muted so I really need this fix.

So does anyone know how I can get windows 7 sound to work while using hdmi from a radeon graphics card to output sound to my speakers? Does anyone use hdmi to connect their display to an amd graphics card?

This is a major fault on amd's part as I have researched the internet for a long time to get a fix ... Read more

Here i am again, complaining about my system..
As my previous topics, this one i think is more serious as i cant boot nor open up advance boot options(f8 dont work). As soon the manufacturers logo show off, an error: "Disk read error. Press ctr+alt+del to resatrt." It remains unless i press shutdown. Power on and it still shows the same.
I havent finished the download of the iso(to be used as a recovery method) thats why i opt for another way which is to recover a backup copy of my registry(which iv done by manually exporting it).  However, i have encrypted it before with my administrative user account. Now, im not able to decrypt it via cipher or keys as if i run: "cipher /c thatfilename.reg" it informs me that only the user(my account) and certificate thumbprint can decrypt it. No found backup certificate or keys. Bad for me i dont know how to recover it via the certificate thumprint....
My last option that i try is use EaseUs Data Recovery Wizard, which i have googled about tools that can decrypt files...

Im new to this tool and still dont know what should i click on for a spedific purpose.

Since the drive still works you might want to give SpinRite a try.  This isn't free and will probably run for days before it fixes your problems.  I do not see you getting your data back any other way since it is encrypted.  Encryption is great for keeping information private, but I've see a whole lot of data lost due to encryption.  In the end only you can say how much your data is worth.

Ok not sure if anyone will understand what im after here, but here goes..... I have three columns named, Salesman, Product group and Value. I am looking to create a formula on sheet 2 which will do a search down the columns returning a value.

The idea of the search being that the three columns are searched in order to calculate the value of each product group by each salesman.
Here is a simplified example to make it more understandable.

Salesman Product Group Value
NF F 3
SR F 1
NF R 2
NF F 2

The calculation would then tell me that
NF has sold 5 of product group F. i.e the
top entry and the bottom entry. Once i get
one calculation done, i would then do all
possible permetations.

Hi everyone,

My laptop has a port for the head-phone. Each time I plug the head-phone in, I have to change the default device in "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Sound" in order for the sound to be re-directed to the head-phone.

Is there any way to make this process automatic? In other words, can I do something so that when I plug the head-phone in, the sound is automatically switched to it, and when I remove the head-phone, the sound goes back to the main speakers?

So here is something I have always been wondering...
You plug in your headphones...turn the music up really loud...
you forget your wearing them...walk away...the headphones unplug...
computer switches to speaker and scares the shit out of everyone in the house...

Is there a way to "Mute" the Laptop speakers...but allow the HeadPhone devices to remain that when you unplug just goes mute...

Especially while watching porn or something this would be really usefull...LOL

A:Mute Laptop Speakers... without muting Head Phone Devices?

Open Sounds in Control Panel, go to Playback tab, right click on your speakers go to Properties, go to Levels tab and click on the little speaker to mute.

Check your Computer manual you may have some keyboard shortcuts to mute them.

Just notised that my head phones do not work anymore when I plug them in with windows 8
Something else that is giving me problems

A:Head phone don't work

Do you mean it doesn't *automatically* use the headphones? You have to go into the sound properties and select the correct playback device.

You may be used to it automatically working, but the default driver Microsoft installs does not sense when you insert headphones (this was the case in 7 as well). You have to install the manufacturers HD Audio driver to get this functionality to work automatically.

I paired my Windows7 laptop with a friend's LG Voyager and under device and printers, when I double-click his phone's icon, I get options to connect to internet using his phone and call from his phone and use my laptop as headset. When I connect my Windows Mobile Treo 750 to my laptop, all the options I get are "Listen to audio from your phone" and "Use this computer as a headset"? I was wondering why dont a Windows Mobile phone have the option to make a call to a number when even LG voyager has it? So I searched internet and came across this page. The writer on that page has a Touch Pro, and he gets the same options that I want. For a comparison, here is what I have.
So, my question is why dont I have the extra options to initiate a call from the settings of my Treo 750 phone?

A:Why dont I have extra BT options for my WM phone?

Normally, for the options for making calls through your computer it installs some sort of driver - my suspicion is that it was unable to find such a driver, or else that it thinks your Treo is a handheld computer as opposed to a Smartphone, as evidenced by the options you have - Use this computer as a headset

Hi, I am Emy from the Netherlands. Wish you all a nice day!

I have troubles with - at least - one of the computers in the little network here. I will describe some of the troubles.
-Links to internetpages on the desktop dont work. I need to paste those in a blank window.
-2 weeks ago the home internetpage was blocked. After looking in a lot of forums I found how to change the homepage to Google. (by changing the registry)
-Online scanners for spyware dont start/are interrupted or dont find anything wrong
-Windows installer is coming up after every click I make to install Symantec Antivirus. But Symantec is already installed.
-I tried programs like Ccleaner and ATF; also Combofix. The last one was also interrupted (black screen). I installed the recovery console. Dont know how to delete this console.
-Even when I dont use this computer, it is like the computer is busy - at times (sounds like when using a program busy converting media files)
-I couldnt activate my membership. Not using the first link, nor the second one. Got a message that something wrong.
-I found srchassctl in the registry. Erased the Search Assistant. After rebooting ACMRU was gone, but SrchAssCtl is here again
-I found msmsgs a lot of times on this computer. I think the problems started with a message in the Live messenger.

Now I will paste the properly files to this topic. DDS and Attach

Set up - Soundblaster Audigy Gamer. Latest Drivers 2.18.0017
USB headset Latest Drivers.
Speakers Set to Default audio device.

So I installed the new headset, and that works fine.
Also the speaker are set to the default sound device.
So Vista recognizes that there is audio and shows the audio levels fluctuating in the Audio Console.

But there is no sound coming out the speakers. And any device set to use the USB headset works fine, as if everything is set up correctly.

So what could be wrong? I have updated every driver and messed with every setting, I even checked the bios. It states the speakers are working just fine and still no sound. (I also checked all connections to the speakers and tested them on another computer they are operational)

Thanks in advance

A:USB Headset works, Speakers dont.

This suggestion is so lame, I'm almost embarassed to make it --- except that it worked for me, so here you go: Have you tried shutting down your system and rebooting after you using your headset? Many systems are set up to require that you have to do that in order to get the sound back to your system's speakers.

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

We need to know if this is a speaker problem or a sound card problem.

Can you try your speakers on another system and see if you get the same results?

Failing that, try another set of speakers on your system and see what the results are.

im using dell inspiron 15-3521 whenever i connect earphone/headphone to my laptops jack only the left side of the speaker work right side has no sound (inbult laptop speaker works fine).my friend asked me to download (0005-Win7_Win8_Win81_Win10_R279) driver from realtek web site and  I installed it and the problem was solved and this was about 6 to 7 months back
but now im facing the same problem i did the same what i did last time  i downloded and re installed the driver but of no use the problem still presists.
so plz guide me what to do to solve the problem.
thank you umesh.

A:audio problem when earphone/head phone is connected to 3.5mm audio jack

Test by switching between the Realtek audio driver and the Windows native audio driver.
1. Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" and right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked.7. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio" (the native driver).8. Click "Next".9. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 10. Restart the laptop if prompted. If not prompted, then no need to restart.[To get back to the Realtek driver, do it again but reverse the names in steps 2 and 7.]
If it still does not work correctly when the native driver is installed, then the hardware in the headphone jack has failed.
But if the same problem is there with the native driver then you should install a different version of the Realtek driver. I might be able to direct you to one but would need to know which operating system you are using.

A:F1 - F12 Dont appear to work

Depends on the keyboard. Without knowing the make/model # we can't give any specific answers.

But in general look on the keyboard for an 'F-lock".

Home network of 2 pc, cross cable, windows XP on both

Lan dont work and dont know why. Ping are ok. I think it will be easier to delete all network configuration and make a new one.

Show me how or lead me on a web site


A:LAN dont work

What doesn't work? If you are able to ping each form the other, are you unable to get to shared folders? For that, each PC must have the same workgroup, and the user account with the same password should be on each one. If you can't see each other in Network Neighbohood, then you need to set one to be the "DomainMasterBrowser". If the key is the same as in 2k, then use regedit and go to HKey_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\parameters and set the value "IsDomainMaster" to True on one PC only.

Hope this helps.

Internet Explorer 7

Whenever I try to use IE it wont connect to the internet (I can use Firefox with no problems) - I have attached a screenshot of the error window.

I have tried the following to cure the problem but all to no avail:-
- ensured that I have applied all current Windows updates
- ran Registry Mechanic to fix any registry problems
- upgraded to IE 8 to see if that would work but same problems

Any suggestions would be gratefully received...

Well you know my new laptop. Tried to read the new Windows xp cd that went with it on my old laptop to copy old files and configurations (it says so in the manual). NO go!
It just wont take it, says the cd-drive is not ready... cant open the cd any way I try. Tried Run and D:\setup, but still the new cd cant be read.
Other cds work ok though on my old laptop so it cant be anything wrong with the drive.
Have dusted the cd but its new and never used and besides I put it in the new laptop and it works there.

A:Some cd´s work, some dont!

You can try cleaning the cd player but most likely you will need to call it in for warranty work.

brand new computer, brand new keyboard, brand new clean install of windows 7 (it did it before this and after this). here's the issue:

f1-f8 work fine for everything in every program, f9-f12 dont do anything anywhere as far as i can tell. f9 has the play/pause function, f10 stop, f11 rewind, f12 fast forward.

these may very well work if im playing a dvd, i havent tried. but honestly i could care less if they work with a dvd but dont work anywhere else. i tried looking around the keyboards drivers and whatnot but i dont see anywhere i can set shortcuts or erase bindings that have been put on a key. is there another program or place i need to look into to unbind or reassign these?

pS: the keys themselves actually work as i can hit them during "press any key to continue"...

thanks in advance.

When I put a disc, any disc, into the dvd rom drive it will spin the disc around for about 30-45 seconds and make noise like it wants to start reading it but then it just stops and does nothing and does not read it.

When I go into 'My Computer' and right-click on the drive it recogonizes it and says it is working properly. Also on the self diagnostics it says it is working properly too. It just will not read a disc though, of any format.
pleas help

A:cd/dvd rom dont work

After you put a disc in, can you access the disc through My Computer?

If you can, it may simply be that autorun has been turned off. To turn it on (from


1. Open Windows Explorer by pressing the Windows + "e" key.
2. Right-click the desired CD-ROM and select Properties from the menu.
3. Select the AutoPlay tab.
4. Select each item from the pulldown list and for the Action to perform, select "Take no action" to disable autorun, or pick the apporpriate action to take if enabling autorun.
5. Select OK.

If that doesn't work, maybe this Microsoft kb article might help: - a word of warning though, one of those solutions involves editing the registry, which isn't advisable unless you know what you're doing.

A:Mic Dont Work

If you can see the speaker icon on your taskbar, right-click on it, and select Open Volume Control, then while you're there, check to see if under your mic there is a checkmark on the Mute. If it is, clear it out.If you don't see the speaker icon there, then you'll have to click on Start,,,, Control Panel,,,,, Sounds and Audio Devices. Then click on the Audio tab, and then click on Volume under the section Sound Recording, then check to see if the mic is on mute. If it is, then clear out the checkmark.Do that and post back.

Hi will182

Did you get this resolved?

Pick the Rectangular Marquee Tool, hold Alt, and select the upper part of the shape.Click to expand...

I interpret this to mean while holding down the Alt key, using the Rectangular Marquee Tool, you would then select the area.
The Alt key will not select it for you.

Did you Rasterize the Layer first then Ctrl+click to select the entire layer?
It sounds like the Alt key is used to prevent the entire layer from being deselected while you select the upper portion of the document.

But hey, I could be wrong...

IBM 8086-W1D mini case desk top - OS winXP home
Ok here is what happened. the electricity went out the other night. It came back on about 10 min later and I was not at the computer but when I looked at it all seemed good because it was at the regular desktop screen. I have surge protector that it is plugged into.
Everything works fine on it except!!! none of the USB ports show the drives that are plugged into them. I have a WD passport 500gig a thumb drive that if I put them into any of the 6 USB ports windows usually shows a pop-up like do you want to copy files and so on that I cancel out of. they also dont show up as drives in My Computer. I have looked at the Device Manager and the USB controllers section... none have anything showing errors or conflicts. I have even deleted them out and had Windows restart, and Windows re-installed them all, and still nothing is recognized. The USB ports also power the devices because the WD Passport light comes on and I can feel it spinning. I also plugged in a USB CD burner I have, the lights come on but it does not show up in My Computer.

Any Ideas on what I need to do to fix this?

A:USB's dont work right

Have you tried any of these devices on any other machine? Also have you tried any device you know for sure is working on your own machine?

Also, have you tried uninstalling the USB devices on the Device manager and rebooting?

stated with tongue in cheek, in fact neither does the regsvr32 qmgr.dll, both when using RUN - state that the application service does not support them and they cannot be registered (even trying to start bits in the service.msc) - would i assume that i have to follow the instructions on the MS site for the error codes, which for me could be the end of this computer as the thing may blow up with me messing with it.

i take it that there is no quick fix, as in cannot download the xp sp2 download, even a repair install of the xp disc did not work.

i recently built a computer with the biostar 6100-m9 mobo. I installed windows xp pro w/sp2. and i have installed all of the drivers.

my problem is this: only one of the the usb ports works (well mostly). there are a total of 8 available ports, 4 back, 4 front. right now i have 4 back, 2 in front (my case only supports 2). anyways when i plug a device into the front ports it says "unknown device" or "device not recognized". i thought maybe that i set the jumpers incorrectly, but then would it even see the device? when i plug a device in the back ports all but one do nothing. the one closest to the nic works, well it works in tbe way of plugging it in and it sees it and when i unplug it, its as if i never did it still thinks it connected. i even tryed safely removing the hardware... to no avail....

i uninstalled the usb "universal serial bus controllers" - everything inside of it. i restarted and windows reinstalled it and applied drivers to it...
it still does the same thing....

does anybody know why it does this, and/or how to fix it?
help would be greatly appreciated...

A:certain usb ports dont work


Firstly, depending on the device, go through Add hardware Wizard to detect it and see what happens then. If its not picked up by the OS and its drivers are not installed, it won't be recognized.

If they're onboard ports, they could also be naft by damage.

The device you're attaching can also be a USB 2.0 device whereas your ports are USB 1.0 and that way, it will not be recognized.

Anyway, can you check in Start>Run>type: devmgmt.msc and hit enter, under "USB Controller"> "General" and "Resources" tab to see what it says about if the device is working properly and if there are any conflicts please.

Let us know what you get.
