Windows playing audio with nothing running scvhost.exe

Q: Windows playing audio with nothing running scvhost.exe

windows is playing audio files in the background with nothing up and running. Found by terminating the scvhost.exe file that was being a memory hog killed the audio issues, but the audio comes back.

Hi. At this point i'm just curious what BS is behind this. Asus P5N-Deluxe Quad2Core 2.8 16gb DDR2 800 BFG GTX 280 Vista Ultimate 64 Enough space left on all drives I have a pretty decent machine. I have 16 gigs ram and its pretty rare that i use up all of that ram at once. Yet every once in a while I go to watch a video on my computer and i get "Your computer is running low on memory. Quit other programs, then try again." --seems laughable The behavior is that the video plays, but there is no audio (WMP) - But it will also not have audio in VLC or anything else - basically its like the issue is universal and the only way i can watch any video with any audio is by rebooting my system. It doesn't matter if i free up tons of ram (trying with 12 open right now, and no go). Its constant until i reboot. Does anybody know what this is and how to get rid of it?

Have you enabled memory mapping in the BIOS? Flashed the BIOS? Updated your video drivers?

Yes, i have 5 scvhosts.exe running, all taking up over 2k memory highest @ 15k i believe i imagine there is something i should be worrying about...but then yet again i could be wrong, any suggestions?

thanks

A:5 SCVHOST.EXE's running?

That is around the usual number. If you don't have the process owner column enabled in Task Manager, you might want to put that one in. Many malware apps that use svchost.exe will run under one of the user accounts instead of a network or system account.

I have a laptop that since this weekend has random audio playing from the speakers anytime it is connected to the internet.  There appears to be no applications running in the background.  It only plays when connected to the internet. Under "Volume Mixer" I see a "Name Not Available" that seems to be the sources of the audio.  Neither MBAM and Kaspersky TDSS found anything at all.  I have a current DDS log and a GMER log if you would like to see them.
 
I've inspected all of the startup items and all running processes and can't spot the culprit.  In searching around on BleepingComputer it seems a few others have had the same thing in the last couple of weeks and that it was a rootkit.
 
Thanks in advance for the help.

A:Rootkit? Random Audio Playing from speakers with no apps running

The audio seems to be mostly randomly selected commercials with it being about 50/50 english and spanish.  It does happen both at home and at the office 70 miles away, so i don't think it's interference from a local tower, etc...

Good morning

Recently had some malware/spyware problems that I thought I had cleaned up but have had persistant problems ever since. Most noticibly I get constant audio adverts playing in the background at odd intervals. These appear to be linked to iexplore.exe as the audio stops when ever I end the process in task manager. However, they pop back up again in task manager a few seconds later. I rarely if ever use internet explorer but these exe files are showing up regardless.

Not sure where to begin so hope someone can help me. Thanks in advance.

Hi,
 
Please download Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) to your desktop.
There are 2 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.
 rKill.exe: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/10/iExplore.exe (renamed rKill.exe): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/11/
Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
If using Vista or Windows 7 right-click on it and choose Run As Administrator.
A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
Do not reboot until instructed.
If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.
After the tool has finished running, a text file named Rkill.txt should be located on the desktop. Please copy and paste the contents into your next reply.

Hello, i hope i can get some help here, as ive seen tons of other users around the net recently getting this same annoying virus or malware, whatever it is, that plays uncontrollable, unstoppable ad-sounds. 
 
Id like to make a few things 100% clear just to rule anything out for the tech support here.
 
 
It started around 8 or 9 am if i remember correctly. I was working on some art; using paint tool sai, watching youtube, and on skype with one of my good friends. Suddenly the computer without warning REBOOTED, without any provocation. I make sure NOT to visit any risky sites; i only frequent aol.com, youtube.com, tumblr, and a few art sites such as Deviantart. I had not visited ANY risky sites or downloaded ANY risky material to cause this virus,  have NO clue how it got on my computer, as i am a generally suspicious and careful person who tries desperately hard to avoid these situations.
 
Once the system had rebooted, i got back into my skype call thinking it was very weird and by this point i was nervous and anxiety was taking over, but within minutes of the reboot, loud ads, news reports, music, and other stuff started playing shockingly loud, overlapping each others ads sometimes.
 
It came at regular intervals and was unstoppable. I went into task manager to watch my processes and saw NOTHING out of the ordinary. I have gaming rig computer, and i saw nothing visible [to myself] that could be considered suspicious. I read many sites, i... Read more

Hey Everyone, Bit of an issue I've had here ever since I "upgraded" to Windows 10. My audio is playing through both my headphones and my speakers simultaneously. What I've already tried:Uninstalling and reinstalling drivers.Installing Realtek.Uninstalling drivers and then shutting my laptop down, then restarting it. None of these have done anything to alleviate the issue so far. Also, in the other forums I've read on the topic, everyone talks about having either a "Speaker/Headphones" option or separate "Speaker" and "Headphone" options in the playback tab of the sound bar in control panel, but I only have this:   There's only an option for the speakers, even when I enable viewing of disabled devices. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Starting today, I constantly have this audio playing in the background which sounds like some foreign radio with ads. Although it is very feint, I still can hear it. The weird thing is, if i restart my computer, I start hearing it even before putting in my password, meaning it's probably not a program that I need to physically open (chrome, etc). The weird part is that even when I mute my computer, I can still hear it. It's a Lenovo ThinkPad 450s, I just got it this January and I have kept it bloat-free with very few programs installed. I find nothing suspicious in the task manager, and I have ran Adwcleaner, Malware bytes, and Windows Defender full scan and they've caught nothing. I would very much appreciate any help I can get on this. I am posting this in the security subforum because others with this problem seemed to relate this to a Trojan. Thank you for taking your time to read this and I eagerly await for your responses.

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

A:No audio in speakers -at all-, Windows is playing sound

Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel. In the Playback section, your "Speakers" should be set as the default playback device. It sounds like the digital is now set as playback.

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

Ok - Windows Gurus.

I have windows media player on the machine. Everything has worked smoothly for months now. I now have a problem with media player 10. When I click on a link to view streaming video, the clip will buffer for a bit, then the 1st frame of the video comes up/freezes and the audio continues on.

If I close media player and click on the same clip, both the video and audio work fine. What is causing the video to freeze (audio continues to play) when I click on the video clips the first time around.

If I try to play something locally, there are no problems. It is only with streaming content and this is a new issue. Software wise, I have been authoring a handful of DVDs but outside of that, nothing has changed.

I have tried to reinstall media 10, reinstall the codec packs etc. All other media players play fine (real audio, winamp etc)- no video freeze. So this is only inherent to wmp10. Weird.

Any other thoughts on what has been altered to cause the video freeze?

I am all for suggestions and thanks in advance for the help!

I have tried numerous DVDs so it is not a dvd problem, and I have tried those dvds on a laptop and it works fine. So it is not an audio problem, nor a faulty dvd. Am I missing a codec or something or is it in the wrong region (I live in Australia) I dont have any other dvd players on this computer so I can't test it out that it is just a WMP problem. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hello,

I am working on the Windows XP OS, and recently had to fight off a couple of Downloader virus infections. Since then, my computer keeps playing random audio files that I have never downloaded onto my computer, mostly ads for something, and at one point, the beginnning of a baseball game. CPU activity spikes when the files are played, but there is no way to stop them, and no visible reason they'd be playing (I won't even have a browser up when they play). I've tried using msconfig to keep things I don't recognize from starting up, but that doesn't appear to be the problem. Google searches for the same problem haven't turned up anything helpful, and now my computer is also turning up a lot of popups, even when my browser is not open (yes, I do have cable Internet).

I think it's a virus, but I've run several virus and malware/spyware programs (PC Doctor, Spybot, several antivirus programs, including Norton), and nothing is catching it. Any ideas on what this is and how to fix it?

I've gone through the five steps and posted my Panda ActiveScan and Deckard/Hijack This logs below. Thanks for any help you can give me!!

Windows Media player keeps getting interrupted by "things" other programs?
Media player keeps getting interrupted by "things" - other programs I guess. Both while playing mp3's and music videos. It doesn't shut down. It just sort of shorts out the music... until I guess whatever is finished bothering it.

It happens
-When I try to rename files or move them around in Windows Explorer [not the ones playing].

-While on the internet. No certain reason that I can see. The websites/webpages I have open don't appear to have any media player music playing. It happens when I use either IE or Foxfire browsers.

Is there a button or something I can select that can keep Windows Media Player from being affected by other programs? It is verY irritating.

I have the following MUTED in volume control:
wavetable
line-in
auxiliary

Thanks so much!

Okay... I asked this question awhile back and a gentlemen said he thought my my system is working too hard and when any other activity is required there is insufficient CPU time left for the video or audio, so it pauses. But he couldn't say ... he needed my specs.

My specs are

Windows 2000
Dell Dimension
Ms 2000
Dell 498 Mhz processor
BIOS version 4.0 release 6.0

Please can anyone help? Thanks so very very much.

Hello TechSupportForum :)

I am currently having issues with my asus laptop; since two days ago, it has been behaving strange:
1. The files/folders that I used to save on the desktop (under my account, i.e. user) are missing. I can only find some of the program shortcut such as Mozilla Firefox, Nitro Reader, AVG2013, etc.

However, sometimes those shortcuts, when double-clicked, would work and sometimes wouldn't. When would work, the program behaves as if it were the first time I used it, with the welcome screen or tips... When wouldn't work, it pops up a small dialog, stating at the top of the bar: "Windows Security" then at the next part it says: "These files can't be opened. Your internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened." And then there is a link to "Why these files can't be opened?"

When I click the link, it takes me to the Windows Help and support dialog; which shows the setting for the Internet Explorer, such as the zone for local, intranet, etc...

One weird thing about this first issue is that when I look in the C:\windows\Users\User\Desktop ; my files and folders are there. But again, sometimes are okay to open, sometimes aren't.

Like when I chose to save the dds.scr on my desktop, it was saved well...but I wasn't able to locate in the desktop. Then I tried running the file without saving it in the first place, but there was no such option...then I tried changing the default location of downloaded file t... Read more

I've been having a problem recently with windows audio. For some unknown reason the windows audio service keeps failing/crashing but I've noticed this has been happening when using my music player then playing a youtube video in Chrome. After that all sound stops and I can't hear it. I can get sound back by manually restarting the windows audio service but its annoying to do every time I want to listen to music and play a video or something after. To clarify I've been using said music player and chrome for a long time now but this problem has been happening just recently. I've also tried updating flash player to no avail.

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!

Hi GrizzlyMatt.

A stop 0x116 is a display/graphics related BSOD. And your GPU is GTX 760.
For a particular reason, we have to look after the display driver later, and check the hardware first.
Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Let us know the results. Will decide our further courses of action after seeing those.

I've been dealing with a recurring infection that seems to originate from the file C:/Windows/svchost.exe. Nothing I come up with can delete the file, and if I don't close the process immediately after it starts running (it uses 1GB of memory!), I pick up the System Fix infection. Malwarebytes acknowledges there's an infection, but it can't delete it properly. I'm at a loss!

Edit: I've researched similar infections and no suggestions for removing those have worked for me, except temporarily.

A:windows cant find scvhost exe please help

If it is spelled as you indicated, scvhost.exe, that is not good.

Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. The result.txt file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. We do not need the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

Recently I was getting physical memory issues on Windows 7 32Bit since it only allows 3.5gb of ram but I have 6gbs. Where as scvhost.exe was hogging about 1,500,000KB's which is about 1.5GB's of memory most of the time which ate up a lot of physical memory.

I decided to reformat my computer to Windows 7 64bit which allowed me to fully use my 6gbs of ram. But scvhost.exe still hogs up around the same amount. I'm not sure if its normal or not, but I wanted to check because I've never really had this problem & I did notice my computer being a little slower than normal.

Running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, Service Pack 1 on a Dell XPS 8700 Special Edition PC.  I am experiencing audio distortion/breakup & dropouts/skips when playing music from the computer through headphones or external speakers.  The problem occurs whether the source is iTunes, Windows Media or the optical drives.  The longer the listening time, the more frequent & severe the errors become.  When listening to ripped copies of the same music through an iPod connected directly to the audio system or headphones, no errors occur.  I have installed an ASUS Xonar U7 external sound card.  This seems to have improved the overall sound but it has not solved the distortion issue.  The relevant drivers appear to be up to date.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

This is a difficult problem for me to put into words, but I am just getting progressively more annoyed as time goes on, so I'll be quick.

Basically, my audio has a tendency to stop working (as in red x over sound icon) at complete random, and despite fixing the supposed "problem" of "audio is too low", it still does this and with seemingly increasing frequency. I have noticed some minor details that happen when this occurs:

1) While inconsistent, it tends to happen right after I open some applications, although this is somewhat random.
2) When it does happen, and I check up the playback devices via right clicking the sound icon, they are completely gone even if the devices are completely plugged in. It's only after I normally click on the icon do they come back after a short period.
3) I check the "Services" and the Windows Audio is off despite the fact that it is automatic. Restarting it only keeps it on for as long as possible until the next random shutoff.
4) It also tends to automatically occur the very moment I log into my account on my computer, so I always end up having to turn it back on.

I am at my wits end here, and I am hoping this place can provide some answers. My computer is a Windows 7 Dell, and I'll try to provide more information if I can.

Hello everyone. I am using a old-ish Toshiba laptop with Windows Vista. So, every time I'm playing songs on YouTube, then open FL Studio 10, FLS 10 won't let me play or record any audio. When I look at the "ASIO4ALL" box it has A little red "X" on audio output(I use "Realtek HD Audio" if that helps). Now when I stop the internet audio/YouTube and restart FLS 10, the little red "X" is gone and all the sound works... I was wondering how to play Internet audio while playing or recording audio on FL Studio 10 is there something I can tweak with the laptop audio or some better sound program I can download free(or not free)and not have to get a new sound card??? Thank you for your time. Peace.

I noticed that very occasionally, my computer will hang. Nothing will respond, not even Ctrl+Alt+Delete, and the only way out of it is to force a shut down by holding down the power button.

I also noticed that this has always occurred when audio is playing. The audio will loop infinitely once the computer hangs. Sometimes, when I hold down the power button for a while, the system will unhang. Other times it will not.

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit SP1
Sound card: Realtek ALC662
I should also mention that the machine is a laptop!

I can't update to the latest Realtek drivers because that causes the sound to start crackling and fizzing really badly (stupid bug). I also don't have any minidumps as the computer doesn't get a BSOD, it just hangs and I have to force shutdown.

Any ideas on how to solve this problem or what I can do to help you solve this problem?

Hello,


Starting about a week ago whenever any audio is being played through my computer (speaker or headphone) I will hear a buzzing sound and occasionally the audio with skip. This happens weather I am playing audio that is being streamed from the internet or that is on my computer directly.

I have tried several things to fix this problem including installing all windows updates that are available as well as updating my audio drivers.

I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit. My computer model is hp pavilion dv7t quad 6100 and I have IDT high definition audio codec driver version 6.10.6381.0 which my computer says is the latest driver version. Updating to this version has not solved the problem, however.

Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated. If there is additional info that is neccesary, please let me know and I will post it.

A:IDT High Def Audio, buzzing sound when playing any sort of audio.

Unplug the speakers from the PC and see if you still get the buzz with headphones. Some "buzz" problems can be related to "AC power ground loop" problems if some separately powered devices are connected.

Noise and skipping are problems that have been posted here before. There is no "one fix" for that. There are possible hardware problems, drivers (including video drivers), Interrupt issues, Wi Fi caused, etc.

Skipping can be because the other device that is on the shared Interrupt that the sound is on is interrupting the sound. Sound is always on a shared interrupt (IRQ) with a higher priority device. You can try this: go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the IDT and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT check the box to uninstall the drivers. Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect the sound and reinstall it and some times put it on a different shared IRQ.

I've been trying to get rid of this virus for a while. I've tried multiple antivirus programs, and I'm always running on Norton. I've tried multiple cleaning programs and registry fixers but nothing works. I keep getting Windows errors and it cant update. About 3 months ago i shut off scvhost because it was very infected.

I'm unfortunately somewhat computer illiterate, so bear with me as I try to break down the issue I'm encountering.

I use an online database called Verint Impact 360 to gather audio files from a company's call center. I have the Verint codecs (VerintCodecs.exe) installed on my Windows PC which allow me to play the audio files using Windows Media Player. However, when I try to open the files using a customized program designed by my company, I'm unable to play the calls.

We had an IT member that found a way to convert the calls into a usable format with OpenOffice Spreadsheet by renaming the files. Unfortunately, he's since left the company, and I was unable to determine how he was able to convert the calls.

So, I guess my question is: Is there some way to embed the codec into the call file so that it could be played on other platforms?

Summary: -The calls are in .wav format -I have installed on the computer VerintCodecs.exe -I can only play the audio files in Windows Media Player (I've tried on the customized program and VLC, neither of which work)

I would greatly appreciate if someone could give me some guidance.
 

A:Solved: Playing audio files that require a codec in programs other than Windows Media

If VLC will not play the files, then they are not the usual format of a .wav file
However, playing WAV files on VLC is rather effortless. That’s because VLC comes equipped with the digital programming that instructs it how to handle data sent via the WAV format. Here’s a step-by-step procedure for playing WAV files on the VLC.
1) After you have downloaded and installed the VLC player, open the VLC media player.
2) The VLC media player will display on your screen. On the menu bar, click on “Media.”
3) A drop-down window appears. Click on “Open File” and navigate to the location of the WAV file.
4) Click on the file in the “Select one or more files to open” window or once you are in the folder that the file is located in, type the name of the file in the “File name” window.
5) Click on the “Open” button. The file will load and the VLC media player will begin playing it automatically.

Hey,

I am having two issues, small but irritating; once I boot into Windows, my audio service is not running, it is set to automatic and it needed to be manually started (I have tried reinstalling my audio drivers)

I am also having issues with my network, my connection is "identifying" until I launch an application such as Spotify.

I hope this image can assist you in some way along with an ipconfig /all dump.

Running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, Service Pack 1 on a Dell XPS 8700 Special Edition PC.  I am experiencing audio distortion/breakup & dropouts/skips when playing music from the computer through headphones or external speakers.  The problem occurs whether the source is iTunes, Windows Media or the optical drives.  The longer the listening time, the more frequent & severe the errors become.  When listening to ripped copies of the same music through an iPod connected directly to the audio system or headphones, no errors occur.  I have installed an ASUS Xonar U7 external sound card.  This seems to have improved the overall sound but it has not solved the distortion issue.  The relevant drivers appear to be up to date.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

I am expat living in China. Yesterday I suddenly received a message that said "the audio service is not running". It is possible that I have a virus because that day I had briefly listened to a couple of audio files from what I thought was a reputable Chinese learning site. I ran malwarebytes and did an online bitdefender scan, but nothing came up. I tried to do system restore but found out my system restore was not on. I've since turned it on.

However if I'm using any browser it has the same problem, e.g. when i click on a link and it goes to a new page or opening the browser. Pretty much surfing seems to lag/distort any audio being played.

I don't have the problem with other windows applications like browsing through folders or opening/closing them.

I'm running Guitar Rig (amp simulation software) on Windows 7, but whenever the application is open it prevents other Windows applications from accessing the audio output. For example, if I have Guitar Rig open I can't play back an MP3 track. As soon as I close Guitar Rig other applications recover their audio capability.

I have tried disabling the "exclusive control" option for all of my Playback Devices in Windows (then rebooting) but it didn't help.

I have Realtek HD audio, and my Playback Devices are listed as:
Speakers - Behringer USB WDM Audio 2.8.40 (this is the guitar USGB interface)
Speakers (Default Device) - Realtek High Definition Audio
Realtek Digital Output
Realtek Digital Output (Optical)

I'm using the ASIO4ALL driver for the USB guitar interface.

Can anyone tell me how/if I can share audio between Guitar Rig/ASIO4ALL and other Windows applications?

I keep hearing random audio ads or music coming from my speakers every now and then. I also noticed that in Windows Task Manager it shows two iexplorer.exe processes are running, and whenever I try to End Process they pop back up a few seconds later and I'm not sure if this is normal but svchost.exe is using a lot of memory. Also often when I search for websites on google it redirects me to random websites. And when following the "Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help" when I double click the Windows Firewall icon in the control panel I get a error window stating "Due to an unidentified problem, Windows cannot display Windows Firewall settings." I could not create a GMER Log, during the scanning process I always eventually get the blue screen of death.

I have been attempting to fix this for quite some time and this is my last resort. There is no difference in safe mode, clean boot, etc. Tried every reasonable suggestion I could find to no avail. A boot trace has revealed that "RPCSS svchost" is taking the majority of the time (see screenshot).

Hey everyone, so i come home one day and turn on my laptop, i go to play some music and i realize nothing is playing. I look at the speaker icon and it has a white x in a red circle over it. I tried to open the settings but it kept saying "one or more audio services are not running." So i tried enabling "Windows Audio" in the services.msc, but all it says is "Windows could not start the Windows Audio service on Local Computer, Error2: The system cannot find the file specified." So i assumed that there were no output devices that were recognized by my laptop. But then i realized that everyday for the past year I have been listening with the same headphones, so how could this happen out of the blue? I look on skype settings for example, and there are no speakers recognized, (not in the drop down box), and no mic etc. I am really worried, and this has happened before, and the company changed my motherboard. Although now I do not have warranty so i am nervous. I am just so confused as to how this could happen so randomly. Oh and I also tried updating my drivers from dell.support website, and nothing seems to work. Please help if possible, Thanks alot.

Please fill in your specs for future reference.
First of all, I would recommend trying a system restore to a date before the problem appeared.
If that does not work, try right clicking My computer->Properties->Device Manager and see if there any driver that is showing with an exclamation mark. If so, please post the error code and the Hardware ID that you can find by right clicking the driver, going to Properties->Details and choosing "Hardware IDs" from the dropdown menu.
Also, try going intro Control Panel -> Sound and see if your speakers/headphones are recognized there.

Ok. So I've been running my desktop on Windows XP with no problems for almost a year now. Last night, I decided to reformat and install Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Now, I can't get the audio to work.

I tried starting it using services.msc, but when I try to, it gives me error 1297: "A privilege that the service requires to function properly does not exist in the service account configuration."

A while ago, my PC was having some lag issues that made the computer practically unusable. I found out in msconfig that I had almost all services running. I disabled many of the services, and I made sure not disable the necessary ones (i.e, Windows Audio.) I restarted my computer and there was a red circle with a white "X" over the audio icon. I clicked on the icon. A window named "Playing Audio" opened. On the window was a bar similar to the one shown while loading/downloading something. Above the bar said "Detecting Problems" and then "Scanning for hardware changes...". This went on for about 10 seconds. After this, the window changed.

What you don't want to hear. Most of these have required a reinstall. I've seen quite a few and users have tried many things but in the end it took a reinstall.

Whatever reinstall procedure Toshiba has, would be my recommendation. Back up your user data (pictures, music, word files, etc) to some other media before the recovery as that is deleted on most recoveries.

Hello All!!

I have seen similar threads here but my problem is slightly different.
I have ASUS P4S8X-MX which have built in audio of Realtek AC'97 .
I am using Windows XP SP2 for quite a time and everything was fine unless i tried to install an updated driver for my sound. After updating, i got Code 10 error , device cannot start.
I uninstalled the drivers, Restart my PC and then installed my previous version of drivers.
Everything was fine and i can see volume icon in task bar. But when i tried playing an audio file there wasn't any sound. I clicked volume icon to raise it but it was disabled.
I double click it to open Mixer .. there are only 3 options (normally it use to have lot ..wave,speaker,etc..) Now it has only Wave , SW Synth, CD Player.. and No recording device.

I did try re-installing the drivers again and again but no LUCK..

I tried using Drivers Sweeper to remove the tracks .. doing that in Safe Mode and then again Installed Old drivers. It all go well but in the end its same situation with sound disabled.

I don't want to reinstall my Windows , is there any way to fix it ?

One thing i noticed is every time I install drivers the sound manager shows up at task bar but in moments it disappears while the soundman.exe is running in Processes and I can't find it in Control Panel as well (where it use to be) .

Hi muazzam

Is best to upgrade to SP3 (if only because MS has dropped support for SP2) but can start, for now, looking at your problem while you continue running with SP2

Let's start with these initial steps
1) List any Problem Devices

Make sure all your devices are connected and powered on
Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste into next post
2) Generate and attach a DirectX report

click Start->Run, enter dxdiag
Notice progress in lower left window corner
When done, click Save Information button and save to your Desktop
In TechSpot, use the paper clip icon to attach the report. (If you don't see icon you may need to first click Go Advanced)
3) If there were no Problem Devices (step 1 above) then also check on your Windows Audio service if Status=Started and StartupType=Automatic

I'll have a look and we can take it from there

I have an Acer Aspire Laptop 57362-4790 running Win 7 with all the latest updates. Audio is an Intel(R) High Definition Audio HDMI, and Realteck HDMI.

Because I had no headphone output with the computer connected to my TV via the HDMI out I ran the Windows audio trouble shooter. I got a messaage "non standard audio detected" and Windows did something. Now my headphone jack works, but I have no audio on the TV from the HDMI connection.

I've checked both the Intel and Realtime audio controlers and gotten the message, "Device working properly."

I've searched both Intel and Realtime for new drivers and gotten the message, "Best driver already installed."

Opening sound, clicking on playback, clicking on configure, selecting speaker and clicking on test gives test tones out of both the left and right speakers on the TV. Going back to the web, still no sound!

Does anyone have any idea what Windows did and more importantly how do I undo it and get sound back on the TV through the HDMI connection?

Thanks for looking at this story, and any help you can give.

A:No HDMI audio after running Win 7 audio trouble shooter

Use the System Restore function and restore the PC back to a date PRIOR to whatever you did. That should return it to how it was configured. System Restore can be accessed from Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools. System Restore will not delete any user data or emails.

FOUND A FREEWARE (yes actually free, no ******** oh it's freeware until you've downloaded it then you find you actually need to pay to unlock the features you wanted) UTILITY CALLED MEDIACODER THAT DID WHAT I NEEDED.

Hi. Well basically what I was wanting to do was take a sample of some of the audio from a video file playing in Windows Media player to use in some music I'm making. (Purely for my own amusement, not for sale, no copyright infringement etc etc).

I have Ableton 5.02 and an M-Audio Firewire 1814 external soundcard. I foolish assumed there would be a setting in Ableton to simply monitor the output from WMP and record it direct. Apparently there is no such setting which surprises me somewhat. You can only monitor inputs from the soundcard. In effect I would be wanting to select the output of the soundcard to actually record what I'm hearing playing WMP on my speakers. Ableton told me it was only possibly with an extremely complicated workaround.

I did try simply plugging jack leads from the output to one of the inputs but the sound is distorted in a metallic manner. I have no idea why that is so what I decided was there has to be a simple way to left segments of audio from a video file.

I can't think how you can do it with WMP, so is there a simple piece of shareware/freeware I can use to take audio from video files? I don't want the whole of the audio I simply want a portion of it, preferably as a .WAV file of good quality. Surely ... Read more

I've actually already seen this problem handled here, and while trying to follow of the solutions realized that I might need some personal help. The computer already had a lot of assorted malware that has been (mostly) dealt with with Malwarebytes and Spybot S&D scans, though this problem presists (also, a "MyPC Backup" PUP that's yet to go away as the files that need to be deleted are always in use apparently). My main concern though is the audio issue. It plays sounds from what I assume are ads, before I even have the chance to launch Firefox (I thought it could've just been an ad or hidden pop up window at first). The only thing I've been able to connect it to is the "Name Not Available" option in the audio mixer, which muting causes it to stop, though I'd rather eliminate the problem completely than just muting it and pretending that it's not there. DDS Log:  DDS (Ver_2012-11-20.01) - NTFS_AMD64Internet Explorer: 9.0.8112.16421  BrowserJavaVersion: 10.45.2Run by sheila at 18:26:02 on 2014-01-05Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium   6.1.7601.1.1252.1.1033.18.3032.791 [GMT -6:00].AV: Avira Desktop *Enabled/Updated* {F67B4DE5-C0B4-6C3F-0EFF-6C83BD5D0C2C}SP: Avira Desktop *Enabled/Updated* {4D1AAC01-E68E-63B1-344F-57F1C6DA4691}SP: Windows Defender *Enabled/Outdated* {D68DDC3A-831F-4fae-9E44-DA132C1ACF46}.============== Running Processes ===============.C:\Windows\system32\lsm.exeC:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k DcomLaunchC:\Windows\sy...

Hello. Yesterday, my sound was working fine. Then my computer startedto lose stability after I ended some instances of scvhost.exe that were using 90% of my processor. My start menu bar will suddenly die, and now, even though the Soundmax Digital Audio drivers are installed, when I try to play music nothing comes through. When i go to sounds and audio devices in control panel, it says "No audio device". Help?
 

A:Audio not playing!

How did you end the Scvhost.exe in the Task manager??

For a while now i haven't been able to play audio cd's on my pc. the file manager recognizes the tracks (.cda files) but the info just isn't being recognized by the cd player programs. the programs even load when the cd is put in, but they say that no disc is loaded. Please provide any advice that you may have.

Hello again,

My saga continues with getting all the kinks out of this newly constructed
desktop computer. All and all things are going well.

I still have one pesky problem. I can not get audio from when playing DVDs.
I can place an audio CD in the drive and I hear that just fine.

I am using the canned dvdplayer.exe from windows 2000.
I have installed every service pack and patch available from Microsoft based on there windows update tool.

I also get no audio when I use the MaXimus DVD player version 1.2


I know that it must be a codec problem. That is all I know though.

I have attached a copy of the information tool from Nero 6.0.
It is information overload for me.
Can anyone guide me in correcting this problem? This is the last step before I hand the computer over to its proud new owner. :giddy:
 

A:No Audio while playing DVDs

I see on that report you have a Roxio driver on your machin CDralW2k, Cdr4_2k
These files cause a conflict with Nero .You will need to go to Nero's site and read a bit on this issue and clean it up. They have utilities for this .
I would use the Nero Showtime as a player and uninstall your DVD player.
Turn off Autorun and point media files to start Nero
There is a update for nero to 6.6 You may want to do this after you clear the conflicts.

Hi,
 
There are random audio advertisements playing in the background on my computer. They are usually short bursts of different ads that come on for about 5 seconds and then turn off for a little while. They are not the result of an application or program, because even when everything is closed I can still hear them. They are fairly recent, and have been playing for about 3 weeks. I can't seem to figure out how to get rid of them. I am running a Windows Vista 32-bit system on a Toshiba laptop. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Random audio ads playing

Welcome aboard  Please download Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) to your Desktop.There are 2 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.rKill.exe: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/10/iExplore.exe (renamed rKill.exe): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/11/Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.If using Vista or Windows 7 right-click on it and choose Run As Administrator.A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.Do not reboot until instructed.If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.If normal mode still doesn't work, run the tool from safe mode.When the scan is done Notepad will open with rKill log.Post it in your next reply.NOTE. rKill.txt log will also be present on your desktop.

Hi,

Like a few others on here I have a problem with occasional adverts playing randomly on my my pc. Audio sound, no other physical appearance of an IE page or a file running through task manager. I *think* that if I browse via Chrome all is well but as soon as IE fires up for any reason that seems to trigger the ads to start running. PrimeScratchcards. com as a song is doing my head in !

So I hope you can help me get rid of the problem.
