A: how to resolve audio issue after installing windows 10

Sumathi1 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about lack of sound and wanted to help -- but need more information. I see you're running Win10. Did the PC come preinstalled with Win10? Or, did you upgrade it from a prior OS to Win10?If you did the upgrade, how long ago was that, and what was the prior OS? Also, please follow these instructions for finding the detailed product number of your laptop: Finding Your HP Product Model Number | HPģ Customer Support And finally, I need to know what sound drivers you are using, so please open Control Panel --> Device Manager --> Sound. In there, you should see Speakers. CLick on that and then click the Properties button. In there, you should have a section Controller Information, click the Properties button. Then click the Drivers button -- and tell me what it says.We can proceed once you provide the information.Thanks

ok...this is super super weird. I upgraded a 2005 compaq presario from XP to Win 7. Everything is fine except sound. I receive the no audio device installed message. I've done all the fixes in windows...uninstalling drivers, updating drivers EVERYTHING. Nothing works. I've even reinstalled the Win 7 pkg to no avail.
But here's where things get interesting. Prior to all of this. I had XP sharing the computer with Xubuntu. Under both systems, the sound was fine. Video actually streamed better in xubuntu. So I know the issue isn't hardware...the sound card, motherboard and what not. I re-loaded xubuntu back alongiside and once again I have sound thru xubuntu. No sound through Win 7.
Is there anything short of using xubuntu solely that I can do to get this Win7 audio issue resolved?
For what it's worth the driver isn't's multimedia audio controller.
I haven't found much online about it.
I hear USB speakers might do the trick.

I've been working on the update of driver of my Laptop and it so happen that it does not complete the installation, for it keeps on saying that "windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it"

I want to look for this "ERROR" but i can't detect nor search for the real cause of this error

For Now I am just using my Laptop at its Least extent because I cant Maximize its usage for I don't have a Graphics Driver or (Display Driver) and Audio Driver

I am really worried for i cant solve this issue which i am presently encountering

Can anyone help me to get this thing Up?

A:How can i resolve this Installing/Updating a Driver Issue?

First of all, if you had no video drivers installed, you would not be seeing a desktop -- so you MUST have some drivers in place already.

Second, why are you using the Computer Management to install drivers instead of Device Manager?

I have seen the other similar threads in relationship to this issue. But they all say use KB976972.  Well, KB976972 did not fix my issue.

I am running a Quad Core Phenom (2.3ghz) 64bit processor, 6GB RAM with Windows Home Premium 64 bit.  When I try to copy large files (approximately 700MB each) to a 16GB Kingston Data Traveler, it freezes, and then the USB thumb drive disconnects.

I have tried copying one file at a time, it all goes very fast until it gets about 99% done then freezes.  

I'll gladly provide any other system information needed.

I downloaded and installed KB976972 and restarted as necessary, and still not working.

A:Windows 7 64 Bit USB Copy freezes. Hotfix did not resolve issue.

I spent about $20 for a USB 2.0 PCI Card and a Powered USB Hub (I wasn't gonna spend all my time reaching behind my computer to plug/unplug things).

As it's been over 2 years, and I don't want to buy a brand new computer any day soon (Mine does everything I need except the USB stuff), I figured $20 to fix the issue isn't that bad. Just annoying.  VERY ANNOYING.

So to anyone still having this issue, some of the KB's listed may help you, or may not.  The only cheap/best solution I've seen is buying an internal USB card.  You can get them for less than $20.  It'll solve the issue. Unless you have a
laptop, sorry.
I'm very angry about this being the solution.

I have a pro-audio multichannel sound card (SEK'D ARC88) I'm trying to install under XP Pro, SP3. I get a message saying that the "IRQ could not be occupied". It appears to be sitting on IRQ 16, which is shared with my ATI Radeon card. This device's driver will not work that way, it says so in the readme.txt.

I went into the BIOS, changed slots (from 1 to 2), and manually set the IRQ for that slot to IRQ5 in the BIOS, one that appears to be free on my system.

The card still wont initialize, I get the above message again. Windows is still seeing the card on IRQ16.

I suppose that I should have installed this card right off the bat, but that was then and this is now, I had my reasons why that couldn't happen.

I'd like to manually change the IRQ setting in device manager, but I can't, clicking on the checkbox doesn't unselect automatic configuration. Could there be a reg setting that would unlock the ability to turn that off? I am logged in as administrator - in fact the only usre on this system.

Thought I'd post this to see what you people think. Next steps, I think would be to boot into Safe Mode and see if I can change the setting there, and as a last resort, un-install the card and re install it again. Perhaps in yet another slot, and configured to IRQ5 ( disablilng IRQ5 for the slot it's assigned to)

That for the read...


A:Solved: Difficulty installing SKED Pro Audio card - IRQ issue?

I still can't assign the IRQ manually, however the card is now on IRQ18, and quite happy to be there. It's not sharing with my ATI card, or anything else for that matter.

The solution turned out to be pulling it from PCI slot1 and installing in PCI slot3. The difference? On this motherboard slots 1 and 5 share resources, so do 2 and 6. Moving the card to slot 3 eliminated the issue. I still have to reinstall my firewire card (slot 5), and my 3rd audio card will sit in slot 2.

Contrary to popular belief, you can have more than 1 audio card in a system, I've had 3 in mine for many years.

Hello to all,
Thank you for any responders. CCleaner says there is a file F:\$Recycle.Bin\S-1-5XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\$RH2BEES.ashbak, and it can not erase it. I tried Windows Disk Cleaner, turned off hidden files and protected files and located it. It would not delete. It is a log file from Ashampoo Burning Studio 9 which is on my computer, but not used in a few months. I have no current ABS9 backup files on my computer. CCleaner gets locked onto it and sits, until I cancel out.
Does anyone have any idea of how to rid myself of this inconvenience, without resorting to power tools. Would appreciate all ideas.

A:Issue that I need help to resolve

You could try unlocker on it to figure out exactly why it refuses to go.
Booting in safe mode and deleting it may also work.

Every time I boot up, I get a 'new hardware found' message and the install wizard box opens for me to install a driver for the 'multimedia audio controller'. I'm assuming it's referring to the sound card. I put in my soundblaster cd so windows could search it for the drivers but it didn't work. Also put my original Dell install/driver cd's in, did the search, and that didn't work either. This all started last week when I walked in and saw my computer trying to boot up. Once I got in, the date was reset back to Nov. 2003 and I had to sync it with That part has been resolved but the 'new hardware found' keeps happening. I'm getting sound so I don't know what's up with the sound card, unless it's referring to something else.

Machine is connected to a domain based network with a Windows 2003 Server.
The PDC is also running DNS.

The workstation in question is the only machine in the network with these symptoms.

There are two machines on the network, named (not really):

From the workstation in question only, if I ping Obama it returns If I ping Palin it returns (???)
If I ping the FQDN of Palin it returns, If I ping -a it returns Palin
If I ping -a it returns Palin (???)

Again, only on one workstation in the network.

It is running WIndows XP 5.1 SP3

I have flushed dns, immediately shut down dns client and rebooted. I have changed multiple settings. I have set up an lmhost file that lists the two machines and had them pre-loaded. Nothing seems to change this. I'm at a point my next move is to uninstall and reinstall tcp/ip.

Interesting stuff but it's driving me nuts. Lots of connectivity issues with this one machine.

Hi Mhumphri,

Welcome to Vista Forums.

Check to make sure that you are also using the latest BIOS and/or chipset drivers for your motherboard.

You could also be having a issue with overheating. Pop the side of the case open to check to see if the fans are running and flowing in the correct direction.

Hope this helps,

One of our Desktop Engineers is running "regsvr32 *.dll /s" on eighty three DLL's that are related to Internet Explorer (IE11). I can post the list if necessary.
My question is: will reregistering the DLL's with regsvr32 weaken the security of IE11 by "undoing" any security fixes that have been put in place with a Microsoft Update?
There is also some concern that registering these DLL's could undo some security settings put in place by Group Policy but I suspect all GPO settings would be put back in place when Group Policy is refreshed.
If you could comment on the security aspect of registering DLL's that is what I am looking for. Many thanks.

A workstation on the network had the Locky virus launched on it Monday. I got ThreatTrack on the line to assist with this, and the tech removed several folders, e.g. Windows\temp, and others, and I had a bad feeling about this while he was doing this. I
was told to log on with a different username in safe mode, which is when I gave him access to the machine via team viewer. After he got off the system, name resolution would no longer work. From any browser, I cannot bring up any web pages via a hostname,
but web pages do pull up with the IP. From the command prompt, I cannot ping a hostname because of name resolution problems, but I can ping an IP. Nslookup does work, however. I initially tried "netsh int ip reset", and eventually removed the network
adapter from the device manager and reinstalled it. Nothing worked. I've been searching for an answer on Google, but nothing so far. I also tried "sfc /scannow". All prior system restore dates prior to the infection have been deleted. The DNS client
service is running.

I recently had my Acer Aspire 5050 laptop, which used to run on Vista, updated to Windows 7. I noticed right away that the display resolution looked compressed or 'squashed' and stretched. Went to adjust the resolution but there are only two options: 1024 x 768 (what I understand to be the computer's native resolution, it is a 14.1" screen) or 800 x 600. The only display option is 'Generic PnP Monitor on Standard VGA Graphics Adapter'.

So I went to the Acer website to look at drivers, but there are no driver options for Windows 7 for my Acer model, only Vista or XP. I downloaded the VGA ATI driver that was there for vista and tried opening it in compatibility mode to no avail. I also tried Compute>System Properties>Devise Manager>Display Adapters> Standard VGA Graphics Adapter>Driver>Update Driver....which did nothing. Finally I went to try a 'regedit' hack:
Increase your screen resolution with this Windows 7 hack ? My Asus Eee PC
which also did not work.

Anyone out there have any suggestions or can tell me what I'm doing wrong? I'm new to this, so maybe it's more obvious than I think! Thanks!

*Also, everything else on Win7 OS seems to be working fine as far as programs audio, etc. As far as I can tell right now, just the display is wrong.

These can be restored by going to properties and reassigning permission but has to be done for each subfolder/short cut.
Is there any simplified/unified system through which all folders/subfolders/permissions can be restored rather than doing it one by one. Any guidance shall be highly appreciated please

Hi there.

I went and purchased ESET smart security but I'm not sold on it. Any opinions?
I feel like I would be better off with AdAware Pro, Spybot search and destroy and maybe zone alarm? (What is Zone alarm? Is that a malware or a firewall kind of thing?)

Also what are your feelings about using that kind of combo of freeware and the pro Adaware product with only windows firewall? (I've heard terrible things about the windows firewall not being very that true? That's why I got the ESET for the two way firewall - but like I said the program is a bit buggy and I'm not sure it's really helping me. )

Can you give me any advice on the best protection combination?
ESET insists that you don't have any other antivirus programs running - but I think that's not
such a great idea because some programs pick up other things that other programs won't.

Any advice on this would be great - also freeware is good for me - I think I've spent enough on products that claim to do everything but dont....

I'm trying to clear out some malware - I get redirected to false sites often. I also think I had a win32.Agent trojan ( which Adaware picked up but ESET didn't ) and worry that some of the malware is being loaded during windows update - is that possible?

I also have a D-Link router - the newest, best one and I use mozilla while surfing.

I see Generic Host Process for Win32 Services error everytime on my Win XP SP3 Professional m/c which is a VM that was hosted on Xenserver.

I tried resolving this issue by following the below steps as a workaround, which still din't worked out:
1) Create a new folder that is easy to access (C:\Temp).
2) Search your hard drive for these 3 old files, and copy them to C:\Temp.
3) If you didn't find all the 3 files on your PC, copy them from an other PC with SP2, or you can download them from When you download, the date will change on the downloaded files, but that's OK. Save the files into C:\Temp. In my case, I had to download wzcsvc.dll .
4) Restart your PC, and press F8 to enter the startup menu.
5) Select one of the Safe Mode options (without network) for starting Windows. I used Safe Mode with Commnd Prompt.
6) Open the folder C:\Windows\System32, and rename the 3 files (e.g. wscsvc.dll_sp3, ...). Or if you dare, you could delete them...
7) Copy the 3 old files from C:\Temp into C:\Windows\System32.
8) Reboot your PC.

Could any one please suggest exact solution for the same ASAP.

Do you see icons for your speakers and headphones now? You may need to enable both of these.

I was using Windows XP Home edition prior to this.

On my desktop, on the bottom right hand corner, if I click on the speaker icon (It has a red cross on it), it says "No audio devices are installed".

Background: A little while ago, the audio on my Windows XP Pro SP2 system
stopped working. I was using the on-board audio card and never had a problem
before. Then, the audio device just wasn't recognized by windows anymore.
When I went to the "Sounds and Audio Devices Properties" window from the
Control Panel, it would tell me that no audio device was detected. Looking
in the Device Manager, however, under the "Sound, Video and Game Controllers"
section, all drivers were installed properly, with no IRQ conflicts, and no
yellow exclamation points on any of the sound devices or codecs. I also
verified that my speakers were working on another system, obviously, and
ensured that the audio card was enabled in my motherboard's BIOS. I
downloaded the latest drivers for my motherboard (and on-board audio card),
uninstalled and successfully re-installed those drivers multiple times.
Still no sound! I even went out and bought a new PCI audio card, installed
it, downloaded and installed the latest drivers for it. STILL no luck. This
is when I really began to scratch my head.

Next, I tried a to do a non-destructive "Repair" of Windows using that
option from the Windows XP setup CD. I got errors doing that , and I gave up
after several attempts. Finally, on a cloned backup hard drive, I
re-installed Windows completely. Lo and behold, the audio worked fine!

If you installed RealTek, it did not take. The generic basic function Windows installed High Definition Audio Device is all that is showing for sound. Are you sure this PC has RealTek?

Looking at the Device Manager listing, this PC has other unidentified device problems. If there are motherboard chipset drivers for this model, install them as a first step.

I just installed the GameMuse DVD 5.1 driver to my Windows XP Pro because my sound wasn't working and now I can't get past the "Windows Is Starting Up" Screen. It will say video resolution not supported and then the only thing I can do is reboot.

This never happened before when I installed this driver, but it happened now after I installed and used Driver Genius Professional.

Please advise.

A:windows not starting right after installing new audio driver

Try these:

1. During startup, press F8 repeatedly (could be a different F-key, usually F8). If done right, you should come to a black screen with multiple selections, such as starting in safe mode, safe mode with command prompt, networking, etc. Select the "Start with last known good configuration" option and press enter. See if that helps.

2. In the event the above does not work, then do the same thing again and start in safe mode. If it allows you to do so, go into the device manager (right-click on "My Computer", properties, click the Device Manger button), select the device you installed the driver for, and roll-back the driver.

3. In the event neither of the above worked, do the same thing again, and start in safe mode. This time, try system restore. Try restoring to a point BEFORE you installed the driver.

Posting in Windows 7 area because I believe this issue is related to the Audio section of the control panel, not the software referenced later in this post.

I am currently using an Asus M3a770DE motherboard in my Windows 7 machine. The specs can be found here ~~>

I currently have the board setup to output sound through the digital audio connection. My problem is that when i try to hook up headphones they do not work. The microphone on the headset operates normally, but the sound just keeps playing through my surround sound system.

The manual, located at: states that I should use the software to change the stream processing to change this behavior, but I am unable to do so in the Windows 7 Control panel or the software.

In short, i need to have headphone output without having to go in and manipulate my sound settings every single time I want to have surround or headphone output.

Hi there,

An audio issue has been an absolute nightmare for me lately and I just can't figure out what causing it.

Before I start though my computer specs:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz

Memory: 4096MB RAM

System Manufacturer: Packard Bell BV

System Model: iXtreme X2712

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium SP 1

Display: ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series

Sound built-in to the motherboard.

Now I have already have tried common resolutions such as downloading correct drivers for the motherboard from manufacturers website and re-installing Realtek High Definition Audio Driver.

My problem is that my audio will only work if I turn my computer off for about an hour then reboot it. If i restart my comp and don't wait an hour my sound does not work. It doesn't pick up any devices such as my headphones in the playback devices area and Realtek High Definition audio driver does not appear in device manager. Its almost as if I had no sound card at all it just does not work until I turn the computer off and wait an hour and turn back on again.

This is probably the strangest issue I have ever come across and driving me up the wall am I missing something obvious here?

The audio on my Windows 98 works fine -- most of the time. Depending on whether the audio icon is on the taskbar (at startup) or not, the sound will or will not work right. My computer will run for about 5 startups with the icon on the taskbar, then about 5 without the icon.
-When the icon is on the taskbar, all the sound works correctly.
-When the icon is NOT on the taskbar, there is no sound on the internet. Also, Winamp reports an error message and I am forced to use Windows Media Player. The error message says:

Sound is always on a shared IRQ (Interrupt) with a higher priority device. Depending on what the higher priority device is it could be interrupting the sound.

Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the RealTek entry and then LEFT click "Uninstall" DO NOT check the box to also uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. Sometimes this puts sound on a different shared IRQ and fixes the problem.

I am out of idea's! i probably haven't taken the right way to do this, but it's all i could think of!

recently my windows 7 crashed, and would not even boot giving me a BOOTMGR error. After having no recovery disks, i downloaded an iso version, made a boot disk and tried to do a fresh install, this however did not work.

So i then used an ubuntu live disk to boot my PC into ubuntu so i could format my hard disk and then do a fresh install, once i did this my laptop would no longer boot from a CD.

I then took out the hard drive and put it into another laptop to see if i could install windows 7 on the hard drive. This worked without any issues.
I then tried putting the hard drive back into the laptop to boot windows 7 and every time i am taken to the startup repair screen and it doesnt move from there.

Just like the title says, I don't want the realtek audio drivers as it completely messes with my audio and also doesn't correctly switch when i plug in headphones for example.
It also doesn't allow for the 'speaker fill' enhancement to be used when playing stereo content through surround sound.

Windows itself does a far better job as opposed to realtek.

Every time i uninstall realtek it automatically gets reinstalled.

Hey everyone.
Just a month ago I bought a new PC built at an Alternate store in my own country. The specs are an Intel i5 6400 core, 16GB of RAM, a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 graphics card, and 120GB of SSD + 1TB of storage.

My audio seems to be managed by Realtek audio. When gaming, I several times a day randomly get the window popping up saying a wire disconnected before it gives the same message again, but there's not a thing I notice in sound or even a change in the way the wires lie as I sit still most of the time.
Now, the big issue happened tonight. I was listening to some orchestral music when suddenly I realised the levels sounded off. Some testing later, I realised that the bass was not audible, the vocals sounded like they came from another room, and the levels were just messed up to the point where my headphones sounded broken and it sounded like it had like 10kbps. Tried the headphones I was using on my laptop, there the audio was crisp as it should be. Strange thing? All system sounds on my PC were crisp and as they should've been, it was Chrome and my games that sounded awful.

I checked every setting but couldn't fix it and was forced to reset to a previous version of Windows, thus losing a handful of my programs. That did solve the issue, but after checking all settings I know of, they were all the exact same as when the bug happened.

I'm having some sound problems at the moment. When I play audio through my laptop speakers, it plays perfectly well for a while and then goes silent. The length of time before silence seems to be dependent on the volume. When it is silent, the volume display on the mixer continues to go up and down just as it does when audio is playing. The mixer does not show the audio as muted. This does not happen when I make the audio play through my headphones or through my USB sound card.

There are several ways I can get the audio to play again. Plugging and unplugging something into my headphone socket, opening playback devices and switching the tab to the 'Recording' or 'Sound' tabs, (although interestingly not to the Playback or Communications tabs) and if Sound Forge was the only program playing audio when it silenced, stopping and restarting the audio track also helps.

Here's what I've already tried:
Rebooting (Duh.)
Reinstalling device drivers with the current drivers from the OEM website
Stopping and restarting the Windows Audio service
Using another user account (no change)
Disabled every unnecessary service and start-up program.
Starting in safe mode (couldn't get the audio services running to test it)
Run "sfc /startnow"

I lurked around (with the slug of what my lappy became) and found little that could help. I scanned for malware, etc. I did that in normal and in safe mode, nothing, though it may have taken hours for both. I defragmented. I cleared my regirstry of errors and such. All beneficial, but none solved my issue. But I did find how msconfig. It was already on selective, being that certain programs are very annoying whenever I start. But I dawdled a bit, checking off a few, reboot, recheck and uncheck. It seems that whenever I have Windows Audio disabled, my issue is solved. My lappy peaks at about 20-25, a vast improvement in terms of cpu. However, it comes with the cost of no audio at all.

So I suppose there is an issue with Windoes Audio Service, being strange since my issue doesn't really correspond with audio. but I don't know why it does this. May someone please help me with this? I am glad that my lappy functions and I don't have to wait 20 min for it to print a webpage, but I would also appreciate it even more if I had everything functioning as it was before.

anyone knows how to fix it?

I encountered the same problem, however if you try this it will work out for you.

You need to right click on the setup.exe, and in properties, under compatibility area, u need to change it to Windows Vista service pack 2, and select run as administrator.

Hi there guys!
I'm having an issue with my computer installing Windows 8.1 Update (KB2919355). I tried downloading and installing it from Windows Update and gives me an error "Some updates were not installed" Code 800F0902 - Windows Update is currently installing other updates. Please try again in a few minutes. The fact is, I have been trying to install it since yesterday; did a few restarts and doesn't work. Also, that is the first update that failed completely on my PC.

I also downloaded all files given on MS Download Center here:
Download Windows 8.1 Update for x64-based Systems (KB2919355) from Official Microsoft Download Center
I followed their instructions and also that update fails. In fact, the other updates given there installed on my PC correctly with no issues found.

My PC is a HP Pavilion g6-1d85nr Notebook PC with Windows 8.1 Pro (64-bit).
I hope you can help me resolve the issue and install (once and for all) 8.1 Update on my PC... thanks in advance.

*BTW... I have prerequisite KB2919442 installed on my PC since March Patch Tuesday.

A:Issue installing Windows 8.1 Update

I have the same problem. I've been trying for days now. (I already installed 8.1 months ago ? so the hugeness of the ?Update 1? file is redundant, but whatever.)

I assumed it was just chocking from everyone on earth trying to download a 887.6MB file on the same day ? and the Windows updates process was failing on a time-out setting ? and that Firefox would manage the clunky choking download better over a long time frame, so went to manually download the file(s) as well, but the file size was different ? so I got cold feet and came here first to see if anyone had solved it via that method.

Now having read a bunch of threads on it ? and I know it's not just me ? I'm going to not worry about it for a week or so and see if it sorts itself out. I don't think there is a security concern.

Patients is a virtue and all that.

A friend asked me to format his laptop and re-install an operating system on it. It originally had Vista but I figured I may as well upgrade to 7. The install went fine but on startup I am told that I am missing ql2300.sys from system32/drivers. I went to this website QLogic Driver Download and I believe I downloaded " Windows 2008/2003 STORport Driver" because I was pretty sure I remembered a previous error having to do with STORport. I went through the Windows 7 load drivers option and put the ql2300.sys file into the drivers folder but it still does not work. I have formatted the computer with Windows 7 format and once with DBAN just to be certain the drive was wiped. Any advice would be appreciated. I am not sure of the system specs, but if you need them I can try and find them out, not sure how it would help though.

My boot loader is grub2 with a nice custom boot menu using this background image.

I apologize in advance if a thread related to this has already happened. Judging from my join date, I'm obviously new to these forums, a friend of mine recommended this to me, so I'm hoping someone here can help me figure out this problem.

That problem being, I recently just wiped out my Windows 7 Basic edition due to some problems it was having and I recently just installed Windows 7 Ultimate (Wireless LAN_Realtek_8.0.0.238_W7x86W7x64_EM108). Now from my judgment with computers when I want to connect to a router, in the bottom right hand corner you could do as so and connect right away. Well, I can't do that. Right now I'm connected through my Ethernet cord and I'm trying to figure out this issue.

I went to my manufacturer website (I have a Gateway zx4800) and I recently downloaded the driver I needed (also x64bit) and I have set-up and installed what I needed to do and I even restarted, and still nothing. I even tried to set-up a wireless connection myself and it told me to wait 90 seconds, but nothing showed up for me to sent anything up, so my mind is just completely boggled.

If I left out any specs that should be posted here to help, I'm sorry in advance, I can answer back asap, but I'm really hoping I can get this problem resolved.

Excuse the obvious question, but did you hit the Wireless key on your laptop's keyboard to TURN ON the wireless chipset? If turned on, it should automatically detect the wireless networks in its vicinity and allow you to connect to your wireless network.

2. Are you sure your wireless network is active? Check with another wireless device.

I had been using a dual monitor setup with a Hanns.G HW-191D 19" LCD and a Cintiq 12WX for over a year on XP without a hitch. Since installing Windows 7, both monitors are recognized but only one can be active at a time. When I change the Multiple Displays option to "Extend these displays" it automatically switches to "Show desktop only on 2". Hitting apply will cause the active monitor to de-sync and the other to turn on as would be expected.

Hi guys, Not long ago I purchased a MSI GS60 notebook (the version with the i7-4710HQ and 970M graphics card, in case that's relevant to this issue).

It came preinstalled with Windows 8, and prior to updating to Windows 10 I had zero issues with blue screens. However, just over a month ago I updated to Windows 10. Ever since, I have been consistently experiencing blue screens many times as week, often several times a day, and sometimes several in quick succession.

I've attempted to work out the cause, and traced the registry ID associated with errors immediately before each BSOD to RuntimeBroker.exe, the application that manages the 'Universal' interface in Windows 10. There may be some relation there.

I've also noticed that the BSODs tend to be much more frequent when the notebook is running off battery power, and have on several occasions occurred within seconds of plugging/unplugging the notebook from a power source. Perhaps there's a power management driver issue?

I can't find a working solution however, which is why I'm here! Below is a dump of information from BlueScreenView. Hopefully it helps - let me know if any other info I could provide might help. Thanks in advance!

Sorry I must be dense. what is the issue? Once you went from vista to win 7 the recovery partition was for all intents and purposes dead. It can only (using a vista dvd) restore you to vista.

What was it you were trying to do?

You can of course (if you have a win 7 dvd) set up a new recovery partition that will get you back to win 7

Hello! This is my first post here, as this is my first issue with this computer. My microphones won't pick up any sound- this computer has two different ones, an integrated one and an outer one, and yet neither work. Troubleshooting only picks up whether they're enabled or not, and I've tried recording after enabling them and disabling them, restarting, etc. I've checked with Beats Audio and they're turned on there as well, and the drivers say they are up to date. Yet nothing is working, when I used to voice recognition test it wouldn't even pick up any outside audio. I should note that the webcam doesn't work as well, because when I bought it, it would disconnect the internal camera often, and when trying to fix it, someone uninstalled the driver or something - though at the time, audio still recorded just fine and I didn't need the webcam. IDT High Definition Audio CODECIntel(R) Display Audio If any other information is needed, please let me know!

I have an issue that I scoured the internet for and haven't been able to find anything even close to an answer. Maybe I don't know how to use a search engine as well as I thought, because I can't find crap. Here's my issue: when listening to music using WMP (11, but it happened briefly using WMP 10 before I upgraded to 11), if I right-click an MP3 in Windows Explorer (the directory I have them saved in) the audio cuts out briefly. Once I select an option in the context menu it's okay; it only happens when I initially right-click the MP3 to bring up the context menu. Sometimes it will cut out for two or three seconds, sometimes for milliseconds. It's not a HUGE problem, it's just annoying as all get out. Color me impressed if anyone can solve this issue.

So this is a two in one problem. I know most people tend to have this issue but I couldn't find a fix that would work for me.

Basically, I had a monitor for a while that had built in speakers. It broke. So I bought one that didn't and just used my Urbanears headphones that I used to use for my phone. Audio worked fine forever, mic worked fine as well. I don't have a webcam but I was able to receive video calls too. Then I updated Skype and now Skype cannot recognize my sound card, it says I have no microphone installed either.

I check my system's audio devices and when the headphones are plugged into the right jack on the front of my tower, the sound works. Unplug it and put it in the left, then the sound is gone but the mic registers as being plugged in. This never used to happen. I'm not sure what happened but I really need to find a fix to it.

Can anyone help?

Recently I decided to go ahead and update to the Windows 8.1 version of the Realtek HD Audio Driver. I procrastinated because it told me I'd have to uninstall the original audio driver and I knew it would take a while to do everything needed. It didn't help that after uninstalling the original audio driver, then restarting like Windows told me to do, I kept getting error messages that forced my computer to restart until eventually my computer let me log in and install the updated audio driver.

However, with the updated version of this driver I had the same issue I got with the original one only much much worse. The original Realtek HD Audio Driver that I had on my computer made music and videos sound absolutely awful when headphones were plugged in. I found out that this is because the driver automatically puts on so-called "enhancements" whenever headphones are plugged in. This was a very simple fix, simply go to "Sound", then under "Playback" you click on "Speakers", then go to "Enhancements" and check the box labeled "Disable all sound effects." Then sound through headphones would return to normal.

Well, with the Window 8.1 version of this audio driver, I can do the same thing, but it never stays that way. Every time I plug in my headphones, it resets back to having enhancements. The strange thing though is that it says the enhancements are disabled but when I reactivate the enhancements(No difference in sound ... Read more

A:Realtek HD Audio Driver(Windows 8.1 version) Issue

Do you have "Realtek HD Audio Manager" in Control panel ? Settings in there override windows settings, also many more options are in there. Did you get new driver straight from Realtek site ?, last version is 2.75.

Yes, it's an older model, but I want to fix it and give it away.  Anyways, the audio driver is not working and is not actually detected by Windows.  It says 'No Audio Device' in Sounds & Audio Devices.  In 'Device Manager', 'Other Devices' has a yellow question mark with 'Multimedia Audio Controller' next to it.
Things I have tried to do:
a) Install Intel Chipset from Dell and then install Soundmax, which is also supported from Dell.
b) Install the 2 Audio Drivers from the Dell Website.
b) Reboot.
Also, I do not have the original CD for the audio drivers so I cannot install it when Windows detects it upon booting up.  Does anybody know how to resolve this issue?

I recently upgraded from win2k SP4 to win XP Pro (SP2 slipstreamed). the upgrade worked fine, everything works.. until I install the update to windowsupdate (installs windows installer 3.1 and another package (KB893803-v2 and KB898461).
after that, WMI denies access to most functions.. including msinfo32 ("can't collect data"), dependencies of services tab ("win32: access denied"), windows update (0x800A0046), and several others. the PC is standalone and NOT part of a domain.
if I "upgrade" again on the same install, it will work fine until I attempt to manually or automatically install windows installer 3.1, right after that WMI starts denying access.

I have a Tecra 9000 running Linux.

I would like to Install windows XP but the Installation CD I have loads drives and then locks up at windows is loading screen. I don't have any recovery or driver disks for this computer as I bought it used. and I don't know why it is having trouble.

The SN for the unit is Z1086914G ST900-0.
I have been reading forums on similar problems and think it might be the chipset driver for the HDD.

I cannot find a driver for this anywhere so I cant try that line of thought.

Does anyone have any Ideas.

A:Issue while installing fresh Windows XP on Tecra 9000


As far as I can remember the Tecra 9000 does not support RAID nor SATA controller which would require RAID or SATA drivers? therefore I don?t think that your issue is related to missing driver?

Did you try to install Win XP containing SP2?
Are you sure that HDD is OK? I think you should check the HDD for some issues firstly.

Hi Team,
I have a custom built desktop system currently running on i3 Processor with Intel? Desktop Board DH55TC and 2 X 2GB DDR 1333 RAMs. I was earlier using Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit OS but planned to upgrade the same to 64 bit OS. Along with this i also upgraded the Memory and purchased an additional 4GB DDR 1333 RAM module. I installed the new memory and the system detected it in BIOS and in the OS also till it was 32 bit OS. I then tried installing 64 OS and it would not let me do it and kept restarting. Then i just used the old memory cards and installed 64 bit OS, then installed the new Memory and it would again have the same issue. Motherboard has 4 mem slots and currently i have only populated 3 of them, is that the issue ?? Or is some kind of known issue with OS ?? Or somthing to do with Memory Voltage ??

A:Windows boot issue after installing additional Memory

Sounds like one or both of the new memory modules is defective. Return for a replacement.

Have you tried running with just the two new modules?

During the phase of printer installation when the software asks to plug in the printer, windows popped up and asked it I wanted it to find software for the printer. I accidentally clicked the option where windows wouldn't bother with the printer (I forget how it was phrased exactly), and now the actual installation software wont detect the printer.

Anyone have any idea how I can make windows refind the printer?

I'm running Vista 64-bit. Thanks much!

A:Issue with installing printer - accidentally set windows to not detect it

Check Device Manager (Start->Run-> Devmgmt.msc) for any yellow queried devices (ie your printer specifically)
Then right click on it and select remove (it may say Delete or Uninstall)
Then restart, and try installing again
