windows 8 pro build 9200 : start up sound stopped playing

Q: windows 8 pro build 9200 : start up sound stopped playing

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.

Hello,
I have a problem with my laptop, I hope someone can help me.
It's a Sony Vaio I bought in September 2014. I recently accepted a windows update request, and my computer has started having problems. The front page picture changed automatically and, when I go on the desktop, now, I have a writing on the bottom right-hand
side of the screen, stating "windows 8 build 9200". I can no longer download attached files from my gmail account, I'm not able to watch videos or listen to the radio 80 % of the times I try to do it. Microsoft word is not working well.
Could you give some help?
Thanks in advance
Giovanna

Hi,
Due to suspected malware/adware/software infections on my laptop and the fonts changing on my menu options in file and internet exploer, I took the decision to restore my insprion 3521 to factory settings.

It appears Windows 8 Pro Build 9200 has now been installed but it is unable to detect my wireless network. Now I imagine this is due to the network card being corrupted or disabled. How do I solve this ?

Do I download all the drivers and updates for my laptop on my desktop pc and then transfer them over to the laptop and that will fix the issue ?

any advice appreciated ?

Habib.

You can see if reinstalling the driver will resolve the issue. If needed you may need to do a complete reinstall of the OS.  You can download the drivers on another computer and then install them on the 3521. Click the link below to download drivers

I'm sorry, maybe I am reading this wrong.

It looks like you said you installed afresh windows 8 and then deleted everything.
I assume you mean, during the install of windows 8 you told it to delete everything from you harddrive and proceed with the install.

Have you installed the driver CD that came with the computer or downloaded latest drivers from Acers website, from another computer and copied to USB stick to install on this computer

Kinda got a case of "fixed it, but have no idea how" here, and I want to try to understand what I did.

I was called over to a friend's house to look at her computer tonight (XP, SP2). It was making a clicking sound every couple of minutes (like the one made when opening a folder, Windows XP Start.wav, I believe it is), but nothing was going on on her desktop - really annoying. I went into sounds, checked and it was the "Start Navigation" command that was using that file. I changed the audio file to make sure, and sure enough, every so often the new audio file would play, just on its own. Her computer was also running extremely slow.

I went into msconfig and disabled all startup programs, then enabled them one by one. I also went into Symantec LiveUpdate and disabled that. The sound had stopped, and the computer seemed to work a bit better, though starting up Windows still took a bit. I noticed that after removing Norton from the startup tab and disabling LiveUpdate, things seemed to improve. I waited about 10 minutes, no Windows XP Start.wav sound.
I also did a scan with Ewido and found 30 medium threat-level instances, which I deleted.

Based on anyone here's experience, could Norton or LiveUpdate have been causing these problems, and what could have been causing the Start Navigation command to be executing? I'm trying to understand this a bit better.

A:Slow Computer, "windows Xp Start.wav" Sound Keeps Playing

Yes, but I'm biased against Norton. It's a resource hog and it causes all sorts of problems.I'd uninstall all of the Norton stuff (to include using their removal tool) and try and sell your friend on the free AVG antivirus. Then install whatever your friend chooses.Then, try this free online scan to catch anything that the Norton may have missed: http://safety.live.com/

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 .

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.

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.

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.

Hi,
I had unfortunately gotten a trojan and had to do a HD full wipe and reformat after having tried to do a system recovery with the USB recovery disk I made when I first got my computer (new). I don't know if the trojan was blocking the recovery or what but it simply would not take and just booted back into windows bypassing the recovery all together.
So I am sitting now with a Build 9200 windows 8 but want to go back to using windows 7 as microsoft has not replied to any of my emails regarding the issue with activation if one has to do a HD wipe like I did. Build 9200 it seems you can't just go into the advanced system settings/restart and access the UEFI to disable secure boot which means I can't install windows 7 and get rid of 8 all together, or atleast can't without some other way to disable the secure boot.
Simple fix... would be put the freaking activation codes that we paid for back on the boxes, or if you don't like that put them at least with the documentation that comes with the computer. Lacking that option I'm stuck here with asking this forum for help.

a couple days ago i started noticing that my laptop playins the "start navigation" sound randomly, sometimes even when im not on the PC.

i do not use IE, and firefox doesnt use that sound, so a page reloading itself isnt the cause, i even tried shutting down firefox and it keeps playing the sound every now and then.

i know how to disable sounds on the control panel, but i want to stop whatever is making the sound, not just make unhearable...
any of you know what may be the cause?

A:start navigation sound playing for no reason

Check the Task Manager and see what programs and processes are running. Maybe you can determine what application is doing this. To access the Device manager, CTRL/ALT/DEL and when the menu comes up, click on Task Manager.

ADDED: Create a "Hijackthis" log and post it in the Security section. Someone there may be able to tell you whats happening.

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.

Hi, recently I bought Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) and decided to upgrade my HP Pavillion a1430n XP computer. Upon doing this, my sound stopped working and I got a red x over the audio symbol in the corner. So of course, I looked on the internet, and found that my Realtek ACL883 needed a new driver. Upon downloading it, I had sound again, and so I was happy for a few days, until a RAM chip broke, and I had to replace it. After taking out the old RAM chip and inserting a new one then hooking up my machine and starting it, the red x was back again.

No problem, I'll just re-download the drivers. Unfortunately this did not work, and so after 4 hours of trying everything I decided to revert back to XP to see if I could figure it out. After restoring to factory settings, my sound is still not working, it appears as if the soundcard isn't even being detected. After trying the drivers again, and downloading an updated BiOS from HP, still no luck.

I am now back in Windows 7, with no sound, and I was wondering what anyone of you would recommend. Obviously, I have no idea what I'm even doing anymore, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi: A similar thing happened to me on my PC running W10 (upgraded from W7>W10). Sound was working fine but then I got the same message you did. What happened to me for some unknown reason, was that the default output got changed from the speakers to the headphone jack. So, I set the speakers as the default again, and hadn't had any problem since. So you may want to check the control panel>hardware and sound>manage audio devices and make sure the speakers are set as the default. That would be the only suggestion I can offer (besides buying a W10 compatible audio card as you mentioned).

As title says, the problem happens in my notebook(not mentioned in system spec) which is an unmodified HP-15AC026TX.

HTML Code:
http://support.hp.com/my-en/document/c04731368
After updating to build 1607, the sound on speakers(not headphones, they are good) are distorted or of low quality whenever I play videos on you tube or online video streaming sites.
To establish that this is due to a bug either in drivers and build 1607, I installed build 1511 and Windows 8.1 and surprisingly the sound on speakers are good.So nothing wrong with speakers.Hence problem lies with Windows 10 build 1607 and drivers only.
I tried different versions of drivers with no luck. (HP drivers,Realtek drivers and Windows update catalog drivers).
Any help appreciated.

Problem:
1) Since updating to windows 10, Laptop completely incapable of making any sound out of the speakers.
2) Headphones plugged into jack produces no volume out of earbuds
3) The Color of the volume slider when F9 or F10 is pressed is a light yellowish orange. Not the Usual Green
4) Playing a test tone creates an error box "Failed to play test tone"

Things I have Tried
1) Downloading a new Driver (failed)
2) Resting the sound and Sound system (failed)
3) Finding the mute button and unmuting the computer (it wan't muted)
4) Restarting the computer
Edit: 5) Tried to switch playback options, There are only 2: 24 Bit: 48000 Hz, 16 Bit 48000 Hz (DVD quality)

Solution I want:
1) My toshiba to actually play sound out of speakers
2) toshiba to play sound out of headphones.

I'm not sure if this is a hardware of software problem. Any way I'm posting it on both Toshiba and Windows 10 Forums.

Hello

I have heard of this happening. One other thing to try:

Right click on the Volume tray icon and select Playback Devices
Select Speakers and Properties
Select the Advanced tab and try changing the bit depth and test. Mine's on Studio quality but CD quality is usually quite adequate.

For some reason changing this to something else and back again has been known to sort the problem out.

I am using Windows XP Professional edition (SP2).
My problem started three days back when all of a sudden I received an error message while I tried to play MP3s in Windows Media Player 10 (my default player) that some codec was missing so the file couldn't be played. I found that codec to be 'tag55' and therefore downloaded and installed it from the internet.

After that I found out that Windows had stopped playing any sound. Neither did I hear my startup, shut down sounds nor any sound while playing a flash movie on IE.

I went to control panel and checked the Sound Settings, everything seemed fine except under the 'Audio Codec' option the 'Device Usage' option was blurred.

Also, in spite of checking the 'place volume icon on taskbar' the icon doesn't show up.

I also tried a system restore but it didn't play any sound anyway.

What do I do now?

N.B. My sound card is SoundMax
 

A:Windows not playing any sound

Generally a System Restore will fix all but hardware related problems.

Since the SoundMax is an integrated device, there may not be much recourse here but to buy and install a PCI soundcard. You may need to examine your BIOS options in installing this to ensure that the onboard sound is disabled.

About the only other thing I can suggest is to remove all the Sound Devices from the Device Manager, reboot and see what Windows redetects. Normally it will automatically install drivers -- but if it can't find them you may have to get them from the OEM Computer Vendor's site.

Warcraft 3/Frozen Throne was working fine "with sound" prior to me upgrading to Windows 10 Build 10130. Now, the game still works the same except there is no sound at all. I've tried updating to the latest "RealTek" drivers but it didn't help.
Has anybody else experienced any problems with sound being absent in Warcraft 3/Frozen Throne on Windows 10 Build 10130? If you have the game but don't really play it can you simply do a sound check for me on Windows 10 Build 10130 and let me know if it's a general issue or something I did on my computer?

Hi,
A short foreword first...
Over the weekend (25-26 Jan)I installed a licensed copy of windows 7 on a newly partitioned drive, (all formatted etc), I normally use win 8.1 but I was experiencing problems with an application and I knew it worked on '7', so I wanted to revert back just solely for this application? Everything has been going fine this week, yes I have received the normal reminders, but I wanted to assess first before activation. As I need more space on the drive I expanded it by 150G this morning. When booting up, I am presented with the normal 'starting windows' followed by 'Logging in' and then 'Preparing your desktop'? after about 2 minutes a blank light blue screen comes up with the message 'Build 7601 This copy of windows is not genuine' in the bottom right hand corner. I am unable to proceed further from here with any diagnostic tool as windows will not start. I can open the 'Task Manger' (Ctrl+Alt+Del) but I'm not proficient enough to identify which task to open. I have also tried rebooting with the DVD and starting in 'Safe Mode'. I am grateful for any assistance you can provide and I apologise if I have not observed the proper rules.
Regards

Jim

A:Build 7601-Windows will not start to carry out diagnostics.

Okay, let's try another way, the application I'm referring to is Flight Simulator X, if it isn't possible to restart windows, would I be successful in copying all of the application and add-on's 'en-bloc' ( this drive is only used for FSX!) to another drive, format this drive I've got the problem with and reinstall windows again, including the activation key and then install the other previously saved files? would they work, or am I going to have to reinstall everything again? something to ponder, that means another stressful week!!
Thanks for you thoughts anyway

Well, it looks like the leaks are starting to flow - or else someone has decided to spend an unhealthy amount of time building an elaborate Start menu replica. As you can see in the image above, the Start menu is there but it's not all that exciting as we have seen most of this before.
We do know that this is still an early build of next generation of Windows and we will have more to report on that tomorrow. So, don't get too caught up in the minor details as there will be other enhancements to the desktop before Threshold is released.
One item about the image that was throwing off users previously is that is says Win 8.1 Pro in the bottom corner. We have spoken to a source close to Microsoft who says that this image appears to be legitimate, and that these builds inside of Microsoft still use this branding, so this is not a big deal.
This build 9788 is said to be floating around the web but has not been properly leaked for all of us to enjoy. Considering that the images are starting to surface at various points across the web, the build will likely leak in the near future.

Hello,

I've just encountered a strange problem:

The sound recording functionality of windows stopped working, this may sound like a strange description but I don't know how to express it any better.

First and probably most important bit of information: If I unmute the microphone in the sound Playback settings I can hear myself perfectly fine.

BUT: It doesnt seem to matter which recording device I select within the Recording settings of the volume panel, nothing works, not even "what u hear" (although im having music playing right now).

Specs:
- windows xp prof 64bit edition
- creative audigy 2 ZS soundcard

I can guarantee I havent changed anything within windows from yesterday (when everything worked fine!) to today. The only thing that has changed, is that I have installed another 4GB of memory to my pre-existant 4GB. I doubt that this is the origin of the problem though, I can't possibly spot any connection.

Here is what I did today already AFTER realizing that there was a problem:

- reinstalled sound drivers (now using SBAX_PCDRV_LB_2_18_0011.exe )
- ran DirectX webupdate

Ok hm.. whatelse is there to say... oh, I used the following programs for testing: teamspeak2, ventrilo and windows' sndrec32.

I also went to control panel - sound and audio devices - voice - test hardware, which presents you an equalizer of the recording source. Even if I switched the recording source to "what u hear" (while playing music in windows that ... Read more

So, I bought and set up my new computer a week ago a HP Pavilion p6204y. I used my already owned 2.1 speaker system that I used on my old computer. Everything was working great.

Last night, I noticed something odd with my speakers; each time I opened a new window a different high pitched sound would emanate from it. I had no clue what was causing it so I shut down the computer, unplugged all the wires possible, replaced them just as they were, and restarted the computer. Problem solved, no more high pitched noises.

Then I realized that NO noises were coming from them at all, all I could hear was a slight static noise when the speakers were turned to full volume.

I decided to investigate and found that my speakers were not even being recognized as being in my computer.

After searching (and reading through) several forums, I came across HP's support site for audio problems and did every single suggestion on the page. Each resulted in no improvement whatsoever, though now the playback devices has an added option (which is still of no use)

I am positive it is not the speakers themselves as plugging them straight into my zune or xbox results in perfect performance, and would really like to find a solution soon for this eight day old computer.

A:New computer windows 7, sound stopped working in a week

You mention you did everything that needed to be done, can you be more specific? The drivers come to mind right off the bat! If you are using older speakers this may be a problem with your new Windows 7 computer. It has nothing to do with the speakers, you will want to check for your sound card driver: Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly.

The file may not be available. Generally recording files are not saved until the user "saves" the file.
But, if the file was somehow saved the saved file name will start with $. Do a full hard drive search using *$* and see if it finds anything.

After installing a new Ethernet card, all audio output from my Dell desktop stopped working (front and back). I am using the factory installed Realtek High Definition Audio which is at Location 0 (Internal High Definition Audio Bus). Every diagnostic on the desktop, however, is showing no issues. This includes the volume mixer, the Realtek Audio Manager, Device Manger, the Control Panel's Sound tab and everything else I could find recommended in various online forums. These all show normally functioning audio. This means that when I play something on youtube, or invoke system sounds via Matlab, the mixer shows everything is good, but there is no actual audio output. I have a NVIDIA video card running two monitors, but they are DVI and their sound output is disabled.

Solutions tried:
-Restarting the computer
-Uninstalling driver and reinstalling driver
-Uninstalling driver and reinstalling latest Reaktek driver
-Sound troubleshooter (no issues)
-Fiddling with the Realtek Audio manager advanced settings, connector settings and speaker configuration

It's a very annoying problem. If I play any sound (music, videos, games) for about 3 minutes, the system locks up and it makes the most terrible noise, and I have to reset. It runs perfectly in Safe Mode (most likely because Safe Mode doesn't activate the sound hardware), and in standard mode as long as it doesn't play music.

It first happened after I played a game of FEAR 2, I closed the game and the system crashed with a BSoD that disappeared too quickly for me to get any info. I've gotten some "page error in non-paged file" BSoDs, and most recently "driver irql not less or equal than" BSoDs (or something along those lines), but that hasn't happened recently. Usually it just locks up now with the noise.

I'm running Windows 7 on an Asus P5QL-E mobo, Intel C2D E8400 Wolfdale @ 3.00GHz CPU, ATI Radeon HD4850 GPU, 4GB of RAM, and the sound card is the mobo's onboard card.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Going further back, build 10022 moved the new virtual desktop button from the middle of the screen to the right-hand side.

With the current Windows 10 preview still feeling very unfinished, particularly in areas such as the new settings app, the small scale of these changes is a little surprising.

Under Windows 7 64-bit (with latest updates), I'm trying to set advanced properties on the built-in SPDIF HD audio device (using the latest audio driver posted for my Socket 775 P5K-E/WIFI-AP motherboard, but it crashes every time.

I can set volume and select

...and I can use the 'Configure' button, but if I select it's Properties on this Sound page, it crashes with this message:

'Windows shell Common Dll has stopped working.
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.'

Clicking on SoundMAX in Control Panel does nothing. No advanced options are displayed.

I need to be able to access the control panel installed along with the drivers for the card. The SPDIF goes straight to an AV AMP, which isn't reproducing Pro Logic Surround Sound in my 5.1 configuration at the moment, I think I just need to configure them through the special SoundMAX control panel which appears in the Windows Control Panel, but cannot be opened (clicking does nothing).

When I access the context menu on Sound properties, it crashes, saying "Windows Shell Common DLL Stopped Working". I have Realtek HD audio and Intel Display Audio (HDMI out) audio devices. I can't access any function from the context menu, such as setting the highlighted audio device as default or testing the device. I tried both R2.79 drivers from Realtek website, as well as the drivers posted here in the Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version - Windows 10 Forums thread, but the issue persists. This happens with all tabs on Sound properties, such as Playback and Recording.

However, if I click the "Set default" button on the bottom it works, but on the other hard, cliking the arrow to open the drop-down list menu triggers the crash again.

I uninstalled the Intel Display Audio driver from Device Manager, leaving only the Realtek HD Audio device, and it stopped the crashing, as I'm able to access the context menu without crashing. Is this issue caused by Intel Display Audio or is a bug caused by Windows 10? Thanks in advance.

A:Windows Shell Common DLL Stopped Working on Sound Properties

I would think, based on your description, it is caused by the Intel Audio Driver. With the Intel Audio driver installed, you have 2 different drivers for the same audio device, which can cause driver conflicts. That is the way I see it.

So I built this computer a few weeks ago with Windows 7 Ultimate. Everything sound-wise has been working til a few days ago, but I have been working through some video problems.
Since this started on Friday, the sound mixer/volume control shows sound playing. But nothing comes out the speakers. When I click the top, it doesn't say 'speakers', it says 'Realtek audio'. When I click that, the sound window comes up and under "jacks" it says "rear optical jack." The top says S/PDIF. Those are both formats that I have never used on this system. I've always used only the rear panel analog jack.

Anyways, I feel like I've tried everything under the sun and I'm close to RMA'ing the motherboard. It's that bad. Anyhelp is uber appreciated. Thanks guys

Hi guys. Having a problem similar to the one the guy had in this thread I found that brought me across your website:

http://forums.techguy.org/windows-xp/555493-solved-windows-media-player-not.html

The DVD will play only background noises and sound room special FX but no character dialogue. I'm assuming I'm having a codec problem of my own. The K-Lite pack that someone posted a link to in that thread has not worked for me. Do I need to reboot my PC? Any help would be appreciated!

Hey. I just installed XP a couple weeks ago, and all of a sudden WMP11 isn't playing any sound when I play DVD's anymore. These are all commercial DVD's I'm trying to play. Other sound and video files work fine, but DVD playback has no sound. I've tried this on a variety of discs with no luck. What the hell happened and how do I fix it?

Note: I already uninstalled and reinstalled WMP.
 

A:No Sound when playing DVD's with Windows Media Player 11

Well, it's still not working with WMP after re-installing my sound drivers, but I just downloaded VLC and it appears to work with that, so whatever I guess.

HElP!  When I turned on my laptop this morning I received a critical error that said "Critical Error - your start menu isn't working. We'll try to fix it the next time you sign in"  I restarted 3 times after that each time with the same error.  So I reached out to HP support by chat.  Was in contact with a very nice agent, took control of my screen and got to work.  After the 3 restart by the agent the chat did not reconnect.  I waited a bit assuming the agent would call me on my cell (we had already reconfirmed that number) and no call.  So I tried to reconnect on chat and chat would not connect at all.  I restarted again, still no chat.  So I called the support line.  Got transferred many times and then was told that they would have to charge me to help.  And I explained to them that I was in the MIDDLE of getting it fixed with someone on chat for free but we were disconnected and now what was I supposed to do?  He/She was in the middle of doing something to my computer and I have no idea what was done.  I talked to a supervisor who after much discussion found out that the chat system had crashed and they expected it up in a couple of hours.  Well, it has been 6 hours and still the chat is not working and I still don't have a fucntioning start button AND I have no idea what the tech did to my computer.  Help me!!Thank you!

The left-click on my Start icon has stopped working and several reboots have not resolved the situation. My Windows key doesn't work either. I cannot launch Edge either. I'm running Windows 10 Home on a new Dell laptop.

What the heck is going on and how do I fix it? I've got apps that don't appear on my desktop which I am completely unable to use now.

For what it's worth, I can right-click the Start button since my latest reboot but I can't left-click it. (On the previous reboot, I couldn't right- or left-click it.)

Hello.
 
My computer was working fine. Then, in the process of moving, I turned it off for a week or two. When I tried to turn it back on as soon as I log into windows the screen flashes on and off a few times then it resets. There's a little message in the corner that says "Display driver igfx stopped responding and has succesfully reovered"
 
I can start in safe mode without any problems. I tried updating the drivers at https://downloadcenter.intel.com/default.aspx?
 
This does not work for me and I get a message stating 0x80070641 - The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance.
 
Any ideas?

A:Display driver igfx stopped responding / windows won't start

I think you need to run windows update readiness tool for vista (32 or 64 depending on which your system is) and then run windows update, and then download and install windows installer, and then install the video driver again. I hesitate to link you to the exact things because I'm not totally sure and I don't want to mess you up. But if no one else replies with a clearer answer (which hopefully they will) then at least this points you in the right direction I think.

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,

Although Windows Media Player is showing movement waves from rhythm like when the CD plays it is not producing sound through the speakers. This is the same with all my CDs. I know the speakers are fine as I hear any other computer sound i.e. turning on/off and other computer visuals which come with sound.

I have tried to follow a previous answer from the forum board regarding the same problem but this was posted in 2007 and gave instructions for a Windows 97 system. The step by step advice given seemed very useful and which I tried to follow but as my system is Windows XP and not Vista either I could not follow the directions which did not seem to apply to my system so I wonder if there is anyone else who can relate to Windows XP who could give step by step instructions for this system that I could try.

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!

Many thanks in advance!

I have been having an issue recently with my Windows 8 HP laptop (i'm not too sure of the exact model at the moment) where it'll just stop playing videos (whether if streamed through the internet such as you tube or if played on the actual computer as a downloaded video) or the sound for said videos just won't play. The problem can usually be temporarily fixed by restarting my computer but it gets annoying to restart my computer constantly because a video is not playing or the sound is not working so I am trying to see if there is a permanent solution. Adobe flash player is up to date and the problem has been occurring before and after I updated flash player. Thanks to anyone who takes their time to read this a possibly attempt to help. If any more information is needed please do not be afraid to ask and thank you for helping.

A:Windows 8 HP laptop suddenly stops playing videos/sound

As the problem is both video and sound, this is more than just an "audio" problem (this forum section),

Any Flash type video/audio (such as YouTube) is related to the Flash player (and there are many reported similar problems).
A complete uninstall of the Flash Player, restart the PC and then a new install of the Flash player helps in some cases.

Build 19 error. I am getting an error message "Build 19 has stopped working". Does anyone know what this error is and how to resolve it?

I have a language program that I purchased and when I try to "Print" a group of lists or flash cards with this program, I am getting this message in a box that says "Microsoft Windows" in the upper left blue area with this message in the white boxed area. It goes on to say "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the programand notify you if a solution is available."
But Windows is not notifying me of any solution. And I can't print and it then closes the program. I contacted company and they recommended I uninstall and reinstall the program which I did and the same issue continues to occur.

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

I have Windows 8 Pro RTM build 9200. I just wanted to check if this was the latest version and/or the same as the version that was shipped in stores in the US on Oct.26? Will I receive all the latest Windows updates? I'm fully activated with a serial.

I'm confused. how would you not know if it was final or not? Where did you get it? If you got it from a legitimate source, it will be the final version and there is no need for such a question.

Yes, the final version is build 9200, as about a million other people have asked, and been answered. I hope we're not going to keep getting people asking this over and over.
