A: Speakers doesn't work after certain volume

Hi kash2528,
I would suggest you to update BIOS and reinstall the audio driver on the Dell system. Please follow the steps mentioned below to uninstall the audio card.

In the search box, Start typing devmgmt.msc and then press enter.
Select the Sound, video and game controllers listed and expand it.
You should find Realtek High definition audio or audio controller please right click on it.
Now select properties.
In the properties window, under Driver tab, click on Uninstall button.
Check “Delete the driver software for this device.”
You want to delete the driver click OK.

After uninstallation please enter your service tag # on the link below, select the OS, then download the BIOS from BIOS section and audio driver from audio section onto the system and install it.

I'm getting only minimal sound from the internal speakers of my Latitude E6420. The volume is very low, even though it's set to the highest level. Also, the sound is tinny. It's similar to what you hear from headphones at a distance, like when someone near you is listening to headphones at a high volume, or if you take off your headphones while the audio is still playing.

Whenever I listen with headphones, the sound is great, but with the internal speakers the audio is practically nonexistent.

I've set the internal speakers as my default speakers, I've adjusted the loudness equalization, and I've reinstalled the audio drivers. I've even tried wiggling a toothpick inside the speaker jack, but nothing has resolved this issue.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Are you using the IDT driver from Dell? If not, here is the link to the Win 7 64 bit driver
Product Support | Dell US

Could be the speaker connection is bad (need reseated?). The speakers are connected by a plug in connector according to what I find in the Dell manual. That would be my "best guess" as the problem. Reseating the connector (unplug then plug back in) would be a good first start. Looks sort of complicated though.
Here is the Dell manual and it details how to access it.

Recently, I have gotten a virus and I downloaded this program to get rid of it, but this important file was infected and i didn't know it was that important so i deleted it. When I was still checking for viruses my computer just restarted and when i try to log in, it didn't let me. It had a red x saying Explorer EXE. on top and saying the action cannot be completed. So, I found the disk to reformat the whole thing. So now, I have everything all fresh. EXCEPT, the memory is still the same. I thought it would be 100% unless my other program is still running...I don't know. So...back to my speakers... I cannot hear anything from my speakers. I can't even open volume control! It keeps telling me to go to "ADD A HARDWARE", but nothing works. I have tried for days. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could help me on these problems.

A:My Speakers Doesn't Work

Do you have a seperate sound card or is it built in to your motherboard?

What did you use to reload Windows - a full install disk from Microsoft or a restore disk that came with your computer?

Did you reformat your hard drive before reinstalling Windows?

Have you updated your sound card drivers?

Go to the control panel and click on the System icon, then the hardware tab and then the device manager.

Do you see any yellow or red exclamation or question marks in any of the sound devices?

I'm running Windows XP SP2 and I have all my sound drivers installed (I can get sound just fine in every app), but I can't control the main volume in the Volume Control. I can adjust the volume with the Wave slider, but the main one doesn't do anything, including mute. Individual applications' volume controls work fine too, just not the main Windows one. It wouldn't be a problem, but it might be the reason why I'm not getting any volume on the Stereo Mix recording option. I just finished a clean install of XP (for a different reason) and it wasn't working before, either. Any ideas?

I have an external speaker that, for some unknown reason, I have to plug it into the "headphones" jack in the front of my desktop pc. But when I'm through using it, I unplug it so our puppy won't accidentally ruin it while smashing into it while "playing" with our other dog. I don't know if it makes any difference whether I disable the audio before I unplug it or not. I haven't been (disabling the audio first). But everytime (actually only the second time it's happened) I plug the speaker back in, I don't get any sound, even with turning the audio way up. So, I've had to access the "Sound troubleshooter". Then after awhile it works. It should always work. So this time I disabled the audio, from the system tray icon, and will try plugging the speaker in again and then enabling the audio. We'll see, will let y'all know what the outcome is and if I need any more help.

A:Audio doesn't work when I plug in the external speakers into...

Well, I tried turning it off (the audio), then unplugging the external speaker. Then did more stuff - can't remember what all I did, though . Then, I unplugged it without disabling the audio, and plugging it back it and it works. But if, for some reason, it doesn't work again after awhile I'll try something else and let y'all know (And I'll try to remember what I did. Better yet, I'll try to remember to take screen shots of what I did to make it work ALL the time and EVERY time I plug it back in. Here's hoping!

Hi, I recently bought an Inspiron 17-7778 and have already found a problem. I use a pair of Razer Tiamat Headphones, which is also a headset. When I originally plugged in the mic cord, (Note: There is only one audio jack) the computer asked me what the cord was. I said that it was a microphone and that was that. The only problem is that not only does the mic not work, but when I plug in the audio jack, It doesn't recognize the audio or the mic jacks being plugged in, even though it tells me that I plugged something in. I've looked through a couple other similar forum posts and all of the answers suggest using different headphones, but that isn't an option for me because this headset was not cheap. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Headphones not working, but Speakers are and the Microphone doesn't work.

Redtrumpet12the mic not work
Hello. If you headset has 2 separate plugs -- one for the headphones and the other for the mic -- then the mic will not work when plugged into a Dell laptop with a single headset jack (aka a combo jack).
Your headset's plugs are of the TRS type (tip/ring/sleeve, or 3 segments). The combo jack will work with headphones with a TRS plug, but will not work with a mic with a TRS plug. The mic would have to have a TRRS (4 segment) plug, in order to work.
Amazon sells some TRS-to-TRRS adapaters, but we have received mixed reports about them. Sometimes they work but very often do not.
Another alternative is to get an inexpensive usb audio jack, and use its jacks instead of the laptop's combo jack.

As I said, the headphones of the headset should work okay with the combo jack. If you are not getting audio through the headphones, try a different set of headphones. If still no luck, re-install the 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" category.3.    Right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".4.    Click "uninstall".5.    Do not check the box to “delete the driver software for this device”. 6.    Restart the computer.

Yesterday I reinstalled Windows 7 on my notebook PC. I had to use a Microsoft installation disk because unfortunately, serious errors resulted after I installed from the HP recovery program. Consequently the HP drivers that were installed automatically with the recovery program weren't installed on my system. I had to install several of them from the HP support site. I got everything to work except for the Touch volume control, or the Volume Scroll Zone as referred to by HP in the service guide. This is the device located just above the keyboard that increases or decreases speaker volume when you drag you finger on it. I installed the Quick Launch button driver but that only applied to the mouse and pointer touchpad. I looked at the devices listed in my startup configuration. I saw the synaptics pointing device and the HP quick launch buttons listed. So is the IDT PC audio driver.  What am I missing? Where I can I find it to activate the touch volume control?

Hi

Thanks in advance for any help
I've got a a Dell Lattitude D820 with Windows XP home.
One day, out of the blue, I started getting an error message when Windows tries to boot.
Unmountable_Boot_Volume

with some unhelpful directions, and then at the bottom,

Stop: 0X000000ED (0x864FB590, 0xC0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
I checked out some different places and the general advice was to try and boot windows from the Windows CD. After setting the BIOS and cleaning the disk, this is what happens

Blue screen with ?Windows Setup? appears and at the bottom it tells me all the little steps it's taking to get windows going. It all goes well and I get ?Setup is starting Windows?

but then I get another blue screen of doom, this one says:

Stop: 0x0000007E (0xc0000005, 0xF76130BF, 0xF7A5F208, 0xF7A5EF08)

I'm not even sure I can reformat if the CD won't work. Ugh.

A:Unmountable Boot Volume, and Windows CD doesn't work

Are you using IDE or SATA. Did you check to be sure you are using the proper cable if you are using IDE? That could cause the first error and the second error. The second error is a driver based error. Hopefully you have a backup because there is a possibility your hard drive is dying. My suggestion...check the cabling...remove any unneeded hardware from the computer...check to make sure everything else is seated properly and try to start up. How old is the computer?

A:Tecra P5 - Volume control doesn’t work properly

As far as I know volume control in the past was mechanical but now it works on different way and it is controlled by specific tool/utility.
To be honest Tecra P5 is not known to me but obviously it is Australian notebook model and according to Australian support page this notebook model is not supported for Windows 7.

That doesn?t mean you cannot use it but this means there is not software package designed for Windows 7 that can be installed so I think there is no much you can do about it.

I know it is annoying but for volume control you can use Windows option placed in task bar.

I have been using my computer for a while now... about 4 months. I download torrents, but I don't think that's the problem. When I turn it off, it turns back on kinda like a restart. When I force shut-down, I let up off the button and it comes back on. I can hold the button down and it'll keep turned off, but when I let it off, the same thing happens. I have two power buttons, and I have tried both of them. Same results... But I only noticed it when my computer speakers randomly start beeping while I was watching a show I downloaded off a torrent. I have a main monitor and a 32" TV hooked up to my graphics card through HDMI. I wouldn't think it would have much effect because I do this normally. It just happened, so I haven't had much experience with messing around with it yet. All I do know is my keyboard stopped working all together. It is connected through a USB adapter for the keyboard. I tried moving it to a regular USB port and the beeping stopped, but my keyboard didn't continue to work. I'm pretty good with computers, but this one has me baffled. I have my antivirus up to date, and I even ran a scan. Nothing was found of course. I don't download anything such as porn or anything.

Well, my computer is done...

So when I tried to start it up, i plugged the keyboard into the same port as my mouse. I thought it might work since the mouse still worked. Well, it didn't. It went into the system recovery and searched for problems. It restarted the computer and loaded after the initial boot screen (del bios F9 boot setup), it just went to a green box and a N with a ~, like what would be in PINATA, right next to it. It fails to boot past that. I guess i have to go get it looked at later. By the way, I'm in Korea working for the stupid army. The barracks have US plugs and everything. Well, props to anyone who can figure this out before I format my hard drive. It is a lot of data, but luckily I have an external hard drive (2Tb) to back up my stuff. I just don't want to have to go through the trouble of formatting the disks(2 x 500Gb).

Once I plug my headphones in or my hearing aids bluetooth device in, it all goes south. The internal speakers continue to work as does the bluetooth, but nothing is coming out of the headphones. Since I was once in IT, this problem is unique to the jack itself. Either the jack lifted up or was pushed back and never properly tested. The hook, I just received this computer 3 weeks ago to replace a faulty HDMI out port. I was told that there would be an open ticket so if I had any problems with this computer it would be attended to. Unfortunately, that is not the case.

Hi all,

I have a Dell XPS M1330 laptop and have recently upgraded to windows 7 professional (32bit) from windows vista. Everything seems to be running smoothly except I can get no sound from the internal laptop speakers. When I plug in external speakers in via the jacks on the front, sound comes through fine, but as soon as I unplug them there is nothing. Headphones also work like this too. Under sounds in device manager, it simply says 'High Definition Audio Device', and I'm not sure if I should be downloading some other drivers?

Any advice is welcome!
Thanks.

I've had a problem like this before. My problem the first time was that was that one of the bars in playback control were all the way down.(If you click on the speaker in your task bar then open volume control.) The second time was when i was in the same thing in playback control click on advance in the volume section then uncheck the digital output only then my speakers worked. Also if that dosn't work try reinstalling your driver for your sound card.

Hi, I bought a new headset today, identical to that of my sister, which is very loud ( in a good way). So, when I plugged the set to my speakers I was disappointed because it was lower than that of my sister's. But then I thought to plug it to front green panel of the unit and boom!!! the sound was crystal-clear as my sister's. The question is: why that happens and how can receive the same amount of volume from both inputs?

A:My headset has low volume when plugged in speakers

If you plug it into a jack on the speakers, the speaker system determines the volume. When you plug it into the headphone jack on the PC the sound chip and system volume control determine the volume.

The Impedance of the headset can also affect volume level.

Good day,

I'm using a fairly new HP Mini netbook and ever since I got it I have this problem of low volume in plugged in headphones and speakers. The netbook speakers themselves are pretty fantastic, but if I plug in headphones or speakers, it seems that the computer lowers the volume substantially to the point that I can't even use speakers for listening to music or watching movies (on full blast, you might be able to make out speech on a film for example, but not from very far away; that's how low the volume is).

I've gone through everything I can think of, checked all the various levels in the volume mixer and audio hardware options, made sure everything is to the max, re-installed my IDT High Definition Audio CODEC driver, all with no results. I also have tried out the speakers both with the Loudness Equalization feature enabled and disabled with no noticeable effects. I've also tested the computer with different sets of headphones/speakers and so it must be some properties of the computer that are the issue here.

I appreciate your help.

A:Speakers very faint, even when volume is turned up all the way

H,mmm did you check the volume control on both the speakers and in the software? One or the other could be set to minimum. Cycle the volume control pot full down to full up on the speaker, maybe a dead spot in the pot. It can happen. Also you might have it full down and you think it is full up. Turn speakers On / Off. Remove and replug the speaker jack in the computer, making sure it is fully seated. Try a different software program to play via the speakers.

If all else fails try a second pair of speakers. That will allow you to isolate the problem to the speakers or in the computer.

First off,this is my first post ever on this forum ( yay ) and i'm not too up to date with technology and the terminology that goes with it so you will most likely have to break some things down as simply as possible for me.

So basically i just bought a new set of logitech x-530 speakers which are amazing and all except for this one tiny problem.

Whenever i connect ANY pair of headphones or earbuds or w.e into it's headphone jack i can hear the sound just fine but i cannot control the volume using the dial.Basically it's like they are connected just fine but only to the extent that i can only hear sound but not control it.

(My own mind told me to first off try and update my sound drivers but you see i don't quite know how to do that ,i let the thing search for any available updates on its own but it always says the drivers are up to date which i don't really believe.)

Help would be appreciated.
 

A:Speakers volume control problem.

Are you sure the volume control for the speakers is suppose to control the headphones and not just the speakers?
Does it work to control the speaker volume?
If it is suppose to control the headphone volume as well then its going to be a hardware problem with the volume control dial or something else in the speakers and not anything on the PC, so updating the drivers isn't going to help. Once you plug the headphones and use the dial on the speakers the computer gives up the control - you can still control the master volume on the PC but the dial should work independently.

You can either try contacting Logitech for support to find out if your set is broken or wait for someone with the same or similar set that knows if the dial can control the headphone volume as well.

When tested on other devices, the sound system blows the roof off. On my laptop, it doesn't (max level on computer controls, media player and speakers knob is lower). I'm pretty sure it's not the soundboard, but I've desperately fiddled with drivers with no avail.
Sound actually starts being heard only after the knob goes past the quarter mark, and does not increase in level too much between 3rd quarter and max setting. Works fine when on my tablet, for example, though.

For some reason, there was sound coming out from both the computer's internal speakers and the headphones that were plugged into it at the time I did this. I tried keeping the 'speakers' volume down all the way in the volume mixer, but this caused all the 'Applications' audio to turn off as well. So I went to its (Speakers) general properties and disabled then applied changes. Now I can't find said Speakers device anywhere in the control panel under 'Hardware and Sound.'

Hey guys,I have a problem with the volume from my speakers. At a completely random time today, my speaker volume drastically decreased. Usually, when I turn the dial to my speakers up to 100%, the sound is extremely loud. Now, at 100%, the audio is significantly lower. When I plug in a headset into the front Audio port of my computer tower, the sound at 100% is lower than what it used to be as well.The speaker model is Emachines, SP-30A. The volume settings on my computer have not changed. I use Windows Vista, and I have verified that the volume levels are at 100%. The power source has not changed. Nor has the wiring changed either (I made sure that the wires running to the back of my computer are correct).Here is what I've done:Ran Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware: Turned up clean.Ran AVG Free 2011: Turned up clean.Ran SpyBot Search And Destroy: Turned up clean.I have attempted to update my sound card driver, however it said it was already up to date.These facts led me to believe that it is not a virus; however I cannot be sure.If anyone could provide some help it would be greatly appreciated. I can't do anything involving audio with this crappy sound.

What I want to know is, at what setting to PERMANENTLY leave
the volume adjustment that is on the speakers.

I noticed I was cranking up the volume using the "little speaker" volume control in the System Tray, and then also noticed the volume setting/adjustment on the (right) speaker itself was only about half-way.

Question:
Better to turn the volume setting on the speakers "ALL THE WAY UP" and leave it there?
or, use up to the MAX setting on the computer audio volume and leave the speaker volume setting half-way or thereabouts?

Could cranking the volume to max on the speakers damage or shorten the life of the speakers?
Or, are most speaker systems "built to take it"?

Thank you!!

I recently purchased the Polk Hampden Speakers. For some reason, the manual volume control built into the speakers themselves doesn't affect the volume level. The only way I can adjust the volume is by using my computers volume control software (the little white speaker in the bottom left of Windows 7/8). I am fairly certain the hardware volume control isn't broken, because when I first plugged them in ( a week or 2 ago) they worked fine. It wasn't until I disconnected/reconnected everything from my computer when I installed a new desk that this problem started.
However, even the software volume control isn't working properly either. In particular, when I go into the mixer to see the volume levels for each application, if I adjust the main "Device - speaker volume" it won't alter the specific applications volumes accordingly. Like, I can reduce the main - device speaker volume all the way to zero (not muted) and the applications will still have the same volume level as they did before I adjusted it.
Finally, even my keyboard bindings to the volume control are whacky. I can still adjust the "main - device speaker" volume with the keyboard, however since this "main - device speaker" volume no longer influences the individual application speaker volume level it is pointless to do so.

Until recently I was able to unplug my headphones from the front input and my USB speakers would activate. So whenever I wanted to hear my USB satellite speakers that are plugged into a USB port on the back of my HP desktop, I would simply unplug my headphones.

Now, I have to manually go into the speaker panel and select whichever one I want in order for sound to be heard.

If sound is playing through the USB speakers and I set the headphone to default, if I close my Firefox browser and then re-open it, sound will be playing through the headset. Likewise the same in reverse.

I don't know what happened to force me to use the speaker panel to change which one I wanted. Before plugging in the headphones would just override the USB speakers and cancel them.

Any ideas what I may have done?

A:Headphones work or USB speakers work but only if I change to default

How does the sound work, if you do not use Firefox. Boot the PC but do not open Firefox. What device is set as default? (should be the USB device). Play a sound file on the PC with a media player (e.g. Windows Media Player) and confirm you are getting sound through the USB device. Then plug in the headphones and see if it automatically switches.

If it isn't working properly, without Firefox, then uninstall/reinstall the sound devices starting with the USB device (Uninstall in the Device Manager, but DO NOT uninstall any drivers, then restart the PC and let Windows reinstall the device).

If it works OK, without Firefox but still does not work correctly with Firefox that makes Firefox or whatever sound add on is being used in Firefox the suspect.

This is the same laptop that I posted a thread about with the bad power button. Not sure if the two are related, since the two problems seemed to crop up around the same time.

Unfortunately, I didn't realize that system restore had been apparently been disabled for some time, and there were no restore points to choose from. I've googled this of course, and besides the things I've tried, it seems that either the headphone jack switch is stuck or the speakers are dead. Would both speakers give out at the same time? I've tried jiggling/rapidly pulling a headphone plug in and out to dislodge the switch, no dice. Anymore ideas I can try?

I have a small but irritating problem of a German talkshow coming from my speakers. Even if the speakers are turned on but the volume is right down I have these voices coming through the speakers.

It's really annoying when I'm listening to radio online or even watching videos on the PC, the German cut's into everything whenever the speakers are turned on. The volume fades from time to time to just a buzzing noise but then suddenly the volume will increase and voices can be heard clearly.

I'm assuming it's a news/talk programme as occasionally they do talk in English and it's news items. I don't have any particular programme open when it happens. The pc can be turned on but nothing running and the voices will come through.

Does anyone know what may be causing this and a way to maybe fix it and make it go away?

I am looking for a way or software to increase the volume of the front speakers from a 5.1 speaker system. If I use Windows Volume Control Options and test the 5 speakers all sound great and equal. However, if I watch a movie or play a game the front speakers are barely audible. I am aware that the movie or game itself may have a lot to do with it nevertheless I would like to have control over this.
My sound is ''AMD High Definition Audio Device'' coming from the AMD catalyst set of drivers.
I looked up "Audio Manager" or "Sound Manager" but the result are of software, that in my opinion is wrongly named, being that they are music file managers and have nothing to do with sound/audio.

A:Looking 4method or software 2increase the volume of front speakers

AMD High Definition Audio Device from AMD Catalyst is NOT your PC sound device. The AMD is for HDMI audio.

You audio, according to the specs on the ASUS site, is VIA VT1708S 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC

Unless there is a VIA control panel with separate level controls for the different speakers you are stuck with what you have. Many video players and games have audio options and that is probably the best you can do.

I am having a simple yet frustrating and annoying problem. I am using a Packard Bell iPower laptop, and Audiohub USB speakers (cause laptop speakers are pathetic) with a Windows 7 OS. The problem i am facing is that i am unable to control the master volume of my computer using the knobs on my usb speakers.

Apparently, whenever i control the knobs i control the volume of the application, rather than the master volume. Does anyone know what i can do to solve this problem? I have tried installing the latest drivers for my audio drivers (Conexant High Definition SmartAudio 221).

So far this problem occurs on certain games and on media players. Thank you very much for reading.

Solution is much appreciated.

Edit: My apologies, if i have posted on the wrong section, kindly move if able

Lately my HP Pavilion dv7 -6135dx has been making a popping noise from the speakers which is independent of both the laptop's set volume and the devices plugged into it. I have checked, and I'm certain that it's not the "Click of Death," as it's not consistent, comes from nowhere near my hard drive, happens independently of memory usage, and will sometimes cause my headphones to "dull" in volume for a brief second. SMART data checks via DiskCheckup also say my HD is working fine, though as I know, SMART isn't always reliable.

The sound comes either from my speakers directly, or from my speaker region at the back of the laptop. Covering the speakers muffles it, so I'm almost certain it's the speakers themselves. The only way I'm able to replicate this sound is to unplug an inserted audio device like a headset. Otherwise it happens at seemingly random intervals. As I said, it's not consistent, but it's happened multiple times in a row before. I think the highest string was five.

My device manager says that the drives are working fine, and this problem has only recently started in the past week or two. I haven't updated my drives recently (at least that I'm aware of) so I don't think it's that either. Google's been of little help as well. The laptop's not even a year old, but it sees a heavy amount of use.

I have no idea what my sister and her friends were doing on the comp for a couple of days that i decided not to use it, but now:

- a few programs take forever to load or don't load at all, but they do show up under the processes tab in the task manager
- after pressing Ctrl Alt Del, the task manager icon appears in the system tray, but the thing only shows up a minute later
- my system recovery is "not able to protect my computer," and restarting does nothing
- actually, when restarting or shutting down Windows, it stops at where it only shows my desktop background and cursor [which is still able to move] and nothing else after that, so i have to hold the power button and force it to shut off
- when I right click the desktop and click on "Properties..." [or something similar to this action] it doesn't show up at all, and whenever I try to open any application after that, they don't even load at all either
- and probably other stuff that I haven't took note of yet...

Things i've tried to get rid of these problems:
- Virus scan with avast!, a couple viruses found and fixed, but nothing changed.
- disk clean up, nothing changed
- registry clean, nothing changed
- CURRENTLY defragging my C drive, hope something changes..

Anyone know what the heck's going on!?
Anyone got any suggestions on what to do next?
Anything helps and would be greatly appreciated!

I have an ASUS notebook running windows 7 64-bit. I am using the QuietOffice power profile, however the screensaver won't kick in no matter what I do, and the display does not turn off even though I set it to be after 5-minutes of inactivity. I don't know if there is something running in the background... I have turned off my usb wireless mouse, and nothing....

Any ideas?

THanks.

A:HELP: power option doesn't work - screen saver doesn't start!

This is another case of factory bloatware interfering - in this case a useless factory utility overriding Win7's superior built-in version.

Googling the Quiet Office feature of Asus there are multiple reported problems. Best to default to the Win7 built-in Power Options in Control Panel. Set up a Balanced Plan unless you're a gamer then use High Performance.

I have a 4y old Sony VAIO (VGN-NS11J) that stopped working today morning after making a whirring noise

Repeated attempts to restart failed and after many attempts, I managed to get to the Startup Repair mode - after a long time, startup repair says it failed to automatically repair the problem

I managed to run system restore but after a while I got the following message: "System restore failed due to an unspecified error. The disk strucgture is corrupted and unreadable (0X80070571)

My laptop did not come with a Windows Vista CD/Recovery disk

My first priority is to recover a few files in the laptop - if I am able to do this, then I dont mind junking the laptop

Since this is an old laptop, I would prefer not to use an expensive professional to recover the data

For the last month or so, every time I log off my account, the keyboard does not register at the Windows Log In screen. This makes it so I have to restart the computer and then it works fine.
There are three accounts on the computer, the casing has been half removed for the last 3 months, a DVD burner and driver recently installed 3 months ago and I am using a wireless off brand USB keyboard and mouse.
OS: Windows Xp Home Edition 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3
As for the second part, the computer requires several restarts to boot up, sometimes up to twenty minutes of turning on and off to boot up. Only started doing this a week ago.

A:My Keyboard doesn't work, and the computer turns on but doesn't start.

It sounds like something is wrong with your Windows XP drivers. Something like that happened to me while building my computer, and when I boot up the keyboard did not work because my copy of windows XP was bad. You could try reinstalling windows XP, and It might work better, but I dont have a definite answer to your problem.

Have a friend with a relatively new Lenovo laptop using Windows XP SP3. Overnight he can't access the Internet via browsers, email or AIM. His desktop connected to the same router is working fine.

He can access the router by IP address using either IE7 or FireFox 3.5. Anything that needs a DNS server doesn't work. This does say though that he has a working connection to the router.

He's run MalWareBytes and his own McAffee software looking for bad stuff but has found nothing.

Running "ipconfig /all" from the command prompt gives exactly the same results for the laptop as his working desktop. The DNS servers are there. He can ping the DNS servers using their IP addresses. He is being assigned a proper local network address so DHCP is working on the router.

Any thoughts on where to look next to discover why the Internet applications don't seem to be able to find the DNS servers?

A:Can't Access Websites, Email doesn't work and no AIM doesn

FWIW, my friend took his laptop to a PC shop. Their diagnosis was malware. I don't know the identity of the malware. Anyway, the shop saved his data then formatted and reloaded XP SP3.

Hi... xp stopped responding and I decided to power off.

Was never able to restart after that. Normal boot shows the windows initial screen, but eventually just restarts, safe mode does the same thing whether it's with network, command line or plain safe mode. Last known good configuration does the same.

Needed to use a file so decided to remove the HD and re-install to another PC. I did have access to the file in question but now I'd like to fix the problem.

The other system uses AVG. I started a scan and it detected Cekar.d (A0003977.exe, wdfmgr.exe and initially ntldr.exe), Dropper.Inor (ntdetect.hta, A0003979.hta), PSW.Generic5.ABVW (ctfmona.exe), PSW.OnlineGames.AAFI (ctfmonb.exe), PSW.Generic5.AFYK (ctfmond.exe), PSW.OnlineGames.ZWT (LotusHlp.exe) and some others but for whatever reason the scan stopped. I restarted it and now the AV still finds most of the threats it was seeing before but not Cekar.d. in the ntldr.exe file.

The system that had the problem was running Win XP Home SP1. Unfortunately, I can't find the manufacturer's recovery CD.

HD is still in the other PC. How should I attack the problem?
 

A:XP doesn't reboot, safemode doesn't work

Update... Three passes of AVG and all threats were put in vault. Tried to re-install the HD to the initial system but no change... System says it didn't start correctly, that a new software of hardware could be responsible, the suggests to try las known good config, none of the options work, they all perform some tasks then windows reboots and ends up in the same screen.

My computer isn't able to recognise my speakers.

The speaker software seems to be missing, can anyone please tell me where I can download some new software (just standard stuff that always comes with windows).
My computer says there is "no audio device", yet there is no doubt the speakers work and only that the software is absent.

I tried several things like using the original installation disk and going to the microsoft website but I am stumped.

I might have accidentally deleted the software and I feel like a complete nitwit (and turning back the time(or whatever the feature is called) doesn't work).

You probably need to reinstall the motherboard audio drivers or audio card drivers.

These are motherboad specific, but the specs in your sig give no clue that would allow us to point you to the right makers website to download them.

I cannot get Windows Media Encoder 9 to work at all at home, but I have no problems with it at work, so I know I'm not trying to do something with it that it can't handle.

At home, every time I try to convert either an AVI or a VOB to WMV, either using the wizard or the custom settings, it lets me get through it all and then, when it starts trying to encode, it throws up the message:
"Windows Media Encoder has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. ..."

It never gives me any more information than this, just crashes and closes. I've tried repairing it through the control panel, as well as completely uninstalling it and reinstalling it, but it hasn't helped.

At home I'm running Windows XP Media Center. At work, where I've never had it crash, I'm running Windows XP Professional. Is there something in Media Center that causes it to crash? Is there any patch I can download or thing I can do to get it to work on my home computer?

Thanks for your help.

when i turned on the computer today i found out that when i unplug the headphones i can't hear with the speakers...and when i plug them back in they work just fine..so at first i thought that it was a hardware problem with the laptop speakers...but then i decided to uninstall the audio card driver (realtek) and when i did it i could switch between the headphones and the speakers manually but they didn't switch automatically...so...now i decided to install the audio card driver and i cant enable the speakers again...
i uploaded a screenshot so you could see what i see..might help make it faster...

thank you for your help

A:Doesn't switch automatically between speakers and headphon

Sounds like a hardware problem with the headphone jack. Most headphone jacks have a separate contact for sensing and if the contact is stuck the system will think headphones are still plugged in. You can try plugging the headphones in and out fast several times, but generally the jack is not repairable. Many Laptops have a small "daughter board" with the I/O on it and if the jack is the problem that board will have to be replaced.
