laptop does play sounds on lid open/close

Q: laptop does play sounds on lid open/close

Hi friends
I had Vista on my lenovo G530 laptop and it used to make short sounds when the laptop lid opened or closed upon entering/exit to/from sleep mode by closing/openning the lid now I have upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate there is no any sound...How can I get this back??

-I dont think its a preinstallled program
-I tend to think it was a Vista sound scheme?
Thanks!

Preferred Solution: laptop does play sounds on lid open/close

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I think there's some features if you go to your battery settings, there should be some kind of table with possibilities with Windows Sounds and stuff like that.
Search for battery, and check it out. I don't remember it completely.

Been like this for a while and I'm not sure how to get it back. Everything else is fine. I just doublechecked and they are all activated and the test play works. I just don't get sounds in teh situations above.

Anyone have any clue as to why??? I could use any help I can get right now.

Thanks!!
 

A:Start up, Close down, Recycle bin sounds don't play

You didn't say what operating system so, I will guess a flavor of 9x.

Go to start-> Settings -> control panel double click the sound icon and check to make sure the schemes tab is set to windows default. If it already is, change it to no sounds, reboot, go back in and change it to windows default then reboot. If you are running a desktop theme, you may want to change that and ensure it is set to change the sounds also.

Let us know

Hi, I recently upgraded to windows 7 (from vista) on my HP Pavillion dv9000 series (specifically dv9850ea)

Beforehand when I ran the upgrade advisor, I got a few warning about incompatabilities - the graphics card for example - but all seems fine after the upgrade.

My problem is with the audio - system sounds work fine, audio from youtube for example, works fine... but when I play divx videos (still need to test other formats) there is no audio with either media player or divx player. Also when I play a song on itunes, it will just hang on 00:00 and go no further.

I know its not a driver issue, as some sounds ARE working... but im stumped!

help!

It is probably one of a few things. a driver or codec, or configuration issue.
Just because sound works on some formats doesnt necessarily rule out a driver so I would check in device manager.

Codec--You may need one to plat the respective format, or you may have two codecs conflicting.

Config--something is configured incorrectly like a control panel

When I am using my web browser (chrome and Internet explorer) unrequested new tabs open with content I did not request. Also when I am browsing the internet or watching a video on a web page unwanted sounds and other audio play in the background without being requested.
 
Also google chrome frequently crashes when unused for a period time or when another tab is being used.

Ok so I have a simple, but annoying problem. I have no Windows Sound Events like the login sound, the logout sound, and when the battery is low. Every other sound like playing music and running YouTube videos work fine. Even when I turn on my laptop I hear the whole computer startup sound, but I don't hear the login one. I don't understand the problem. I went into personilazation and went to Windows Sounds, but when I select one and click "Play" I don't hear anything. I tried the other Sound Themes and they don't work either. I ran the Fix It program for Audio, and it didn't find anything wrong.

A:No Windows Sounds, but regular sounds play fine

Hi,

I wonder if anyone can help. I have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li2727 which I've had for just over a year. It's a great laptop, but recently I've had something weird start happening. Whenever I close the lid the laptop doesn't go into sleep mode anymore. However, when I re-open the lid it does go to sleep. If I don't notice this or forget to re-open the lid the laptop gets really hot, and I'm worried that this may cause problems in the future.

Additionally, the laptop also seems to sometimes randomly wake while the lid is shut. I only use it wirelessly, and have checked that none of the power saving options have been changed. I don't know if this was triggered by an update or not, as I hadn't used the laptop for a few months so there were a lot of updates to install once I started to use it again.

My setup is: Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li2727, Vista Home Premium 32bit SP2

If it was just not going into sleep when closing the lid I'd expect it to be a broken switch, but it's the fact that it then sleeps when I open the lid that has me stumped.

Thanks in advance, hope someone can help me fix this!

Hello all,

I have a Toshiba laptop, for about 2 years now. I would like by describing the pc specs, but i'm having a hard time since i can't open My Computer to see the details, but it goes more or less as follows:

Windows 7 Home Edition, i7, decent graphics card, 4gb ram.

My pc never broke down on me or anything, but now, i think it was after i installed a driver for the touchpad, everything stopped working.. I can't reproduce any type of sound (browser, mp3 files, videos, etc) I can only hear the starting windows sound. Can't open My Computer as stated before, can't open my screen resolution screen as well.. I've tried repairing the disk, scanning for viruses, editing some things on regedit, but nothing has worked so far..

If someone could be so kind to point me in the right direction i'd greatly appreciate. My native language is not english so sorry for any mistake.

A:Toshiba Laptop - Can only hear system sounds, can't open MyComputer etc

Where did you download the touchpad driver from? Have you tried System Restore to the restore point prior to installing the touchpad drivers? What have you edited in the registry? Have you ever used any registry cleaners in the past?

Also download Speccy install it this will tell you all the specs about your computer hardware which we will need. When Speccy is open go to file then click on Publish snap shot or screen shot then post the link here.

Hey guys,

My laptop has been running slow as a heck for the last couple of months. Just all of a sudden every time I close windows and exit programs it takes forever to close and typically a blue screen comes up and dissolves down after the window closes. Hopefully we can figure this out, thank you for your time.

I have access to my OE install disc.

I have an inconvenience that is slowly turning into a problem. At odd times, my screen blacks out. I could be typing, playing games, or whatever. I haven't been able to recreate the problem. I'm getting instruction from HP now. I'm told to update my 965 chipset (I think that's display), update my BIOS, and update NVIDIA driver. When I update any drivers, I'm told, by the computer, that the installation was unsuccessful and that I should try again. 3 times is enough in my book. I have updated my BIOS and that turned out to by fruitless. I try to pinpoint the event in my event viewer, thinking this will help me, and I find I don't know the TYPE of event this is. I'm searching the net for the type of event I'm having. I have also turned off my UAC because I read that it sometimes interferes with the display, but only when the UAC window is up. Long shot, I know, but I'm willing to try anything at this point.

Any ideas?

A:Display blacks out then reappears when I close then open my laptop lid

id say its hardware fault rather than software. if you have no other problems such as image/video distortion when viewed/played, and no problems when your gaming (other than your screen), its not your GPU.

when you say it blacks out, does it look like it has lost all power, or does it just look like it isnt not displaying anything( in other words, is it back-lit). ive had that problem twice before and found the screens power connector was half way out of its socket on the motherboard..

another sign that the connector has come loose is if you get flickering when you rock the screen back and forward.

how often does it happen?

Okay here's the issue in steps. First I boot up my computer. I close it over. come back later. open it. Computer will connect but with the small yellow triangle. Thing is though, it's only my computer that ever has issues with my internet connection. My sisters laptop has never had an issue with out internet. Yet my laptop is able to connect to the neighbors internet fine. The solution to my problem almost all of the time is to simply reboot my computer, which solves the problem(most of the time). But i'm getting so sick of having to do it. The other times when a reboot doesn't work I have to manually reset the internet. As i'm typing this I'm on my neighbors internet. my sister is connected fine to our internet but my laptop simply won't work with it so i'll have to reset it when i'm finished this Some useful information might be that this problem only started happening ever since my computer got wiped.I've tried updating the drivers but apparently they're up to date. Before that I never had an issue. Does anyone have any possible solutions? Thank you in advance

TLDR: basically my laptop has very exclusive issues. either my internet hates my laptop, or my laptop hates my internet. Hopefully someone can help me distinguish which one it is

I am using Mr.Grims 'HUD' series themes and they all have sounds that run when a windows is maximized, minimized or closed and this has suddenly stopped working. No matter what sound I set to run on these events they are not triggered (As far as I can tell the trigger is the problem). I have removed the themes, run 'sfc /scannow' to revert all changes they have made, I have rolled back and updated my audio drivers, nothing works. I'm not exactly sure when they stopped happening though I think it was sometime today. I have been setting up my computer after getting a new SSD and have installed so many of my programs including most every program from office and would hate to have to redo it all. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

A:Windows Do Not Trigger Thier Sounds (Maximize, Minimize, Close)

1. Do you have sound when playing music or video?
2. Did you go into your Sounds properties to see which sound scheme has been (re)installed, if any?

Control Panel -> Sound -> Sounds tab -> Sound Scheme dropdown box.
What does it say there? From what I recall, even the default Windows 7 Sound Scheme did not have default sounds assigned for opening, closing, maximizing or minimizing individual windows.

I've got the RC beta of W7 installed on the 5th.
My motherboard is an Asus P5Q-E with Soundmaxx audio.
I plug my headphones into the front audio jack and it is NOT seen by W7.
I move the plug to the rear jack and it is not recognized.
Go to Sound control panel and the headphones are listed as the default device but it is greyed out and can't be used.
When I look at the volume settings for the system I see the green bars moving. There is sound in there somewhere but I can't access it.
The headphones work.
The front jack works.
According to W7 my drivers are OK.
I do not have enough knowledge to know where to look next.

First of all, have you the latest Vista driver for your chipset ? You can find it here : http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mis...10_Vista_n.rar

Then I heard of that problem, it seems that your headphones are the default device whereas you should have the speakers as a default, try to install the driver i linked in order to see if it can solve that problem.

Good luck !

I installed the latest build 7100 and it won't let me play my music. I get a popup window with the message:

Windows Media Player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file is stored, or your proxy settings might not be correct.

I tried taking ownership of the directory, but still no go.
What am I doing wrong??

Hi there,
Recently I've been having a problem with the sound on my computer. I can only play MP3s and WMAs, but only in Windows Media Player. .wavs do not play, which means there are no system sounds. And when I'm watching something on a site like youtube, the sound won't play either. I've also tried to install codecs, but that didn't work either. I'm using Windows Vista.

Hello, from my username you can tell I am experienced with Macs. However, I am using a Windows computer for a school project and I am having trouble with Powerpoint.

I'm using several sound files for my presentation. Most of them are midi files from Clip Art. Everything was working fine, and all the sounds were playing, so I saved the presentation and then I added another file, in wav format.

This file wouldn't play in previews or in the slideshow, so I deleted it and tried again. Still didn't work. I took it out again, and tested the presentation without it. None of the other sounds would play.

How can I get the sounds to play, and what do you think caused this? I didn't move any files or anything. This is so confusing!

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I've recently had a lot of spyware on my computer that I've been trying to get rid of. I've got a big part of it removed, but after my efforts my speakers have something weird going on. I can play music from my iTunes fine, but any sound I try to play from my browser won't play. I don't get any errors, I just don't hear anything.

The only audio device I have in my device manager is "Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device", which makes little sense to me. I'm not sure if that's referring to my speakers or not. When I go to Sounds and Audio Devices in the control panel though, it tells me there are no audio devices connected.

So my questions are: Is this "Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device" referring to my speakers? And if not, what can I do to get my computer to detect the speakers? Obviously they're hooked up right and functional, so what else could the problem be?

My operating system is XP. Hopefully I gave you guys enough information. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

mIRC crashes and a message appear saying that " mIRC has encountered a problem and need to close".

If I went to set sound for even I have first to convert them to .wav.

What is the solution since some scripts like xdcc klipper for mIRC doesn't allow you to choose the files for the sound and they are mp3?

Hey all. I'm wondering why windows 7 doesn't allow you to play sounds thru 2 different jacks or ports. As in, my case has USB, front headphones jack, and rear speakers jack.

But I can only at one time use one of the 3. I can only have sounds routed thru my speakers. Or thru my headphone jack, or my USB headphones. I can't have 2 running.

Basically sometimes I want game sounds thru speakers and vent thru headphones. Or much simpler, I want 2 headphones running so my girlfriend and I can watch hulu together.

My audio drivers are all up to date. It's a Windows 7 option/setting or lack there of.

How do I get it to play sound thru both the front and rear speaker jacks simultaneously?

A:Play sounds thru 2 ports

No help?

When I change a few system event sounds, such as Logon and Logoff soundswith two particular files, NOT default Windows sounds, and "test" they won't play, but if I set them back to default or any other .wav file in the drop-down list, those all work. I might note, that I made this change and did have the sounds working, but now, they won't work at all. I have tried to move the file and redirect the "system" to the new location and nothing. I can open the sound clips in Media Player and they are fine, but "windows" just won't play the audio when I logoff or logon. Any suggestions folks?

A:Sounds will not play when not set to default ones

Did a driver rollback on my Raeltek HD audio card, retried and all is working! Funny thing is, ALL the defaul Windows Media .wav files played, but messing around, I also found that Windows Narrator wouldn't work either! After I did the driver roll back, all was fine!

Okay, so this problem has been bugging me for a couple of weeks now. My computer will not play any sounds through the speakers unless it is through a media player and the file is on my computer. I have a Realtek AC97 sound driver. I know that my speakers are fine because my Xbox 360 is hooked up to them and they play perfectly.

I have even done an XP repair install, this has not helped either. Sometimes, when a sound needs to be played, the speakers make a bumping crack (if you know what I mean ). When I play a game on my computer, they just make a constant crackle. It is as if they want to play an instrument but don't have a music book.

I tried downloading that codec pack (forgot the name, but it's popular). I have tried fully uninstalling all my sound drivers and stuff and then reinstalling from manufacturer's website. I have tried all the suggestions out there about editing the registry and stuff, they haven't done anything either.

I did get it back from the pc shop recently because they replaced the hard drive with a new 500gb one and the sound did not work from the moment I turned it on. I would like to avoid having to spend more money there and instead see if this is something I can fix with a mouse and keyboard?

Thanks for reading and I hope you can help.

If yes then try clicking configure and follow the Wizard to setup your speakers

Next click on properties

Tried:- A popular registry import fix (no change); re-imported original key settings
- Installed Windows Media Player SDK (no change).
- Ran FileMon during the time when the webpage would be initiating the mp3. Some files were shown as "not found", but those may normally not be found, for all I know.

I've been having this really strange problem lately. Sometimes when I plug in or in rare cases when I unplug my headphones random sounds starts playing. Advertising, sounds from movies, music, anything.

It seems to start playing, not at the beginning of the "sounds", and it does not play until the end of them. Also, these sounds are NOT on my computer anywhere. They are completely unrecognized by me. When they play, a strange "program" appears in the sound mixer. See attached screenshot.

Anyone else having this problem?

Some system event sounds won't play in Vista on my Dell Inspiron 1525. It was working until about a week or two ago and I have no idea what happened. I've searched here and elsewhere, chatted with Dell tech support and tried absolutely everything I can think of.

The problem is some even sounds work, like Startup, Shutdown, mail notification and some don't like Asterisk, Default Sound, Close Program. When I use the Test button in the sound scheme scheme area the sound will play, but then the sound won't play when the event happens in Windows.

Things I've tried:
-updated sound driver (confirmed with Dell support)
-upgraded to SP2
-checked items in services.msc to make sure Themes support and other sounds items are running
-used default sound theme and overall theme
-checked Mixer to make sure nothing is muted (even though some sounds are playing)
-other things I can't even remember
-scannow

After upgrading to SP2 I apparently don't have restore points going back far enough.

Anything I can try? This is driving me nuts even though it's not anything critical. Thanks.

A:Play some sounds through speakers and some through headphones

Not that I know of. Its either one or the other. You can have options on some sound devices for which headphone/speaker jacks are or aren't active but you can only have one default audio playback device at a time and thus everything gets routed through that device.

Hi, I bought my XBOX two days ago, and yesterday I got an HDTV for it, a 47' RCA. I have properly plugged in all of the correct jacks, the green, blue. and red video plugs, and the red and white audio plugs, into the same video mode of course CMP1. It will not play any sounds but I know it's not my xbox cable because first of all, I just bought it, and second of all I used it on my smaller TV and the sounds plays perfectly, only problem with the smaller one is I can't read anything because the font is too small. You should probably know that I got it second hand off of a friend and he used his cable TV on it and it played the audio, I don't know if something happened after that but he didn't move it around too much. I also bought an HDMI cable (which supports sound AND video) and tried that too, same problem, no sound, perfect picture quality. I would appreciate any feedback or help. I may have to take it in to get it fixed but I would like to try as much as I can before I do, as I get very irritated about spending money for something I could've fixed myself, as do we all.

Things I've tried:
Gone through the menu messed around with audio menu
Plugged in computer speakers into the head phone jack
Plugged headphones into the headphone jack
Throwing it against the wall
I've gone through the XBOX audio settings
Tried CMP1 and 2
Tried HDMI
Tried plugging it into extra audio ports

I am running a Toshiba computer with Windows 8 and Google Chrome as my default browser.

Basically, any videos from any website will load but not play, and any sounds (not necessarily just from Google Chrome) won't play either. For example, when I change the volume of my computer it does not play a tone (when it normally should). I have updated Java and Adobe Shockwave to no avail.

The problem started occurring a couple of days ago. Originally I could restart my computer and I would be fine for a while, but eventually that stopped working. I have had this computer for at least 6 months and have not had any problems with it. Also I ran a quick scan with Windows Defender and it didn't find anything out of the ordinary.

Ive read a tonne of similar problems but none the same. my static is only there to replace the original noise.

Hi Designation7,

Welcome to the forums. Have you installed a codec pack? I can recommend Shark007's as one of the best around
Shark007.net - Windows 7 Codecs - WMP12 Codecs

If you have already installed one, there could be a problem with it, so try Sharks.

Good Luck
