Preferred Solution: WinXP SP2 sound mixer problem

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: WinXP SP2 sound mixer problem

The update must have steps on a few sound files. I recommend you download the latest sound drivers and install them after deleting all sound devices within Device Manager. Once you delete them reboot and Windows will discover them as new hardware and you should select Have Disk and use the drivers you donwloaded.

Hello everyone.  I noticed this problem early this morning and ran a virus scan on my laptop to no avail.  Later in the I didn't notice the sound coming from the unknown source as "name not available" in my sound mixer.  I doubt the virus or malware (I don't know the correct term) is gone.  I saw a post about this topic where the person posted info requested by the moderator.  I didn't know if I should follow those instructions or post my own info so that you can see any other specific problems.  As per the Prep Guide I'll leave the information requested.  Thanks so much for helping me out.  I don't want to think everything is okay with the laptop when it actually isn't.

I was wondering if anyone can help me. I recently reinstalled windows xp but the new version does not have any sound. When i go to "volume controller", it says "There are no active mixers available." How do i fix this and get sound?

A:sound mixer problem

go to Device Manager and check for X or ! next to your sound card. You might need to reinstall the driver. Delete it and reboot. Found New Hardware Wizard will install it or use your own driver.

I have a Compaq nc6000 Laptop. It has SoundMax Integrated Digital Audio.

My requirement is to record any sound that comes out of my computer.
That would include any songs that I am playing and also whatever I am speaking through my microphone.

For this purpose I chose "Wave Out Mix" as the recording Source.
I can record whatever sound my laptop produces, except for the microphone.

But I could record my microphone input , If I choose 'Microphone' in the Recording Panel. But that records just the microphone other sounds produced in my laptop, like songs are not getting recorded.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks

A:Sound Max Mixer Recording Problem

Welcome to TechSpot

It sounds like you should get a piece of DJ-software, which has a proper mixer in it.
Not sure if you can use Window's own Volume Control to properly mix two inputs.

I tried to remove un-needed windows components & I guess I removed windows sound mixer & volume control. Now when I try to place the volume control in taskbar or access the sound mixer, I am instructed to install them in add/ remove programs. I have tried this (several times) but these items are not listed. I even tried exploring the restore discs that came with my pc but cannot find them. I'm really not sure what to do! I guess I was hoping someone out there has encountered the same problem and can tell me what to do. Please help!

I have done everything I thought of (drivers, check show disabled devices in playbacks etc...) and I still can't manage to figure out why I cant get the computer to broadcast sound, I only hear it when I click the volume Bar, If i watch a video for example I hear no sound... very strange. If you guys fix this one Ill be impressed. What I am assuming now is that the Sound Card is broken or damaged. Willing to use teamviewer, thanks guys.
Forgot to mention, in playbacks it shows no Audio devices installed, in Device manager shows 5 Audio devices (4 Nvidia high def 1 Conexant HD audio)

You can get them here, download the file, it is a self extracting zipped archive.
Create a folder on your desktop, cut and paste the file into it, then double click the file to decompress the archive. After decompression there is a readme text file with installation instructions.

I've already posted this in the motherboard forum but realised it'd be better to ask it here!
 
I'm using WinXP on a Gigabyte GA-8N-SLI Pro motherboard. It has onboard AC'97 Realtek sound.
If I use their surround test to check my 5.1 setup all the speakers work as expected. Also works fine if I play surround sound from a video in VLC or Potplayer.
A stereo source plays from the centre, front left, front right and bass speakers as expected.
The problem is any sound from a browser - I've tried both Firefox and Explorer - only comes out of the front left and right speakers. Any other stereo source would normally play from front left, front right, centre and bass.
I have tried the latest driver from Gigabyte's website ver A3.92 and the latest Realtek driver version A4.06.
To recap: surround works fine with everything but web browser sound only appearing front left and right (no bass or centre).
(oh and I also am using this computer with Windows 8.1 update on another drive - different drivers obviously - and the sound is fine with everything including the browser)
Any ideas what's wrong here and what I can do to fix it?
Thanks.

So heres what i want to do...
I have a mic input port on my laptop along with my webcam which has a microphone built into it (logitech quickcam pro 9000) and also windows XP SP2 pro
What i want to do is to take the audio feed from the webcam and the audio feed from the mic input and merge them into 1 feed for recording, so basically i will need a virtual input to which i can put both these inputs to...
ex: (other situation with video) I have 2 video feeds go into my laptop... a capture card and my webcam... im able to pop them into this program called WebcamMax and it will output a third video feed called WebcamMaxVideoFeed which will contain my webcam and any special effects i want (such as putting in the feed from my capture card in the corner) so if i want to show people on msn my webcam along with something im capturing i am able to select the webcamMax feed and they can see whatever feeds i want to show them at the same time...
I want to do this exact same scenario but with audio...

Inquiry: Does anyone know of any software out there that will do this?
One last thought:
Windows XP and my audio drivers on my laptop (RealTek) already seem to do this but only with the audio lines that my soundcard originally had equiped on the laptop (Front micJak, built in Mic and Stereo Mix) if i plug in my webcam, it will know theres another microphone there (i can select it from my microphone list on msn messenger and any other program with simmilar tasks) but it will now show up...

"Hello, recently i saw something at my Windows 7 sound mixer called "Name Not Available". It looked like a program which had sound but there was no programs associated with it(i even checked processes with processexplorer, everythings fine) nor it made sound. At first i thought it was a malware but after a scan with Avast(full comp scan, everything at high, nothing at results) and restart it disappeared. The thing is i never saw something like it. While this thing was happening i was playing yugioh pro with my cousin which is a clean program since i thought that was the source of it."

So, I asked this at "Am i infected? What do i do?" section and boopme told me that i got Bootkit infection. Also asked me to create a new topic.

Windows 7 Enterprise x64 Bit

Every once in a while, sound starts playing on my computer. When I open up the mixer it shows an application alongside all the other programs I have open, but it is labeled "Name Not Available". The sound is always some kind of ad.There is nothing unusual that I can see under Application or Processes in the task manager. The only change I have made to my computer recently is that I downloaded DivX Player, and I have since uninstalled it.

I've tried Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, IOBit, Kaspersky TDSS Killer, and Super Anti Spyware, but none find anything. I have not included a GMER log because it was not working correctly.

I have this little online ustream account, messing around I was wondering if I could make it so, not only could people hear my Sterio Mix AND my microphone, since it only lets you choose one. I dont know how to do this via vista.
 

A:Sound Mixer?

anyone?

lets put it this way. ustream lets you choose only 1 audio device, Aux, SterioMix, and Microphone.
For my sound I use sterio mix, but I want Microphone too.

Anyway I can mix them into one?

Windows 7 Enterprise x64 Bit

Every once in a while, sound starts playing on my computer. When I open up the mixer it shows an application alongside all the other programs I have open, but it is labeled "Name Not Available". The sound is always some kind of ad.There is nothing unusual that I can see under Application or Processes in the task manager. The only change I have made to my computer recently is that I downloaded DivX Player, and I have since uninstalled it.

I've tried Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, IOBit, Kaspersky TDSS Killer, and Super Anti Spyware, but none find anything.

Hello it appears you have a protected Bootkit. It will need to be properly removed so you do not lose your system.So I think we should get a deeper look. Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.If Gmer won't run,skip it.Let me know if all went well.

Hello. Ever since yesterday I've been having strange sounds coming from my computer. It's garbled and laggy sound coming out of something called Name Not Available in the sound mixer. It sounds like a woman trying to speak but it's so distorted and laggy there's not way to tell what she's saying. I googled around and found that I might need to mess with a registry editor. I'm not all that good with that so I'd rather get help from someone who knows more about computers than me. I'm running Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium.

A:Name Not Available in sound mixer?

Hi Talishi,
 
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, recently i saw something at my Windows 7 sound mixer called "Name Not Available". It looked like a program which had sound but there was no programs associated with it(i even checked processes with processexplorer, everythings fine) nor it made sound. At first i thought it was a malware but after a scan with Avast(full comp scan, everything at high, nothing at results) and restart it disappeared. The thing is i never saw something like it. While this thing was happening i was playing yugioh pro with my cousin which is a clean program since i thought that was the source of it. Did i get infected or is it a Windows bug, etc.?

I have windows 7 OS on my laptop. The default audio output is the inbuilt speakers. I also have a wireless headphones set. When I connect to the headphones via bluetooth it is recognised and I can change its volume from the volume mixer.
But I am not able to control which programs play on which audio device; for example the browser sounds are always played on the the inbuilt speakers and not on the headphones. Is there a way to assign applications to play on certain audio devices ?

A:windows 7 sound mixer

Can you make the headphones the "default playback device"? Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sounds and finally Sounds. In the Playback panel, if the headset is listed make it the default playback device. Then all the PC sounds will go to the headset.

I am running WinXP pro SP2, with AC'97 onboard audio,and I recently lost all sound from PC.
First, I checked all software that relates to audio, and found no errors.
Next, I plugged my speakers into my stereo, and they worked.
Next, I ran four AV scans: Avast, NOD32, SpySweeper, and Zone Alarm, with no thing detected.
Next, I ran three tries at system restore, but no change.
Next, I removed AC'97 audio drivers and codecs, and replaced with latest updated drivers and codecs. No change.
Next, I tried to repair Windows with the XP disk, and nothing changed.
Next, I moved all critical files over to another disk, and formatted C: drive, re-installed XP, new dnld program from Win Updates, and 24 new updates, ZA FW, and NOD32 AV. Still have no sound. So, I disabled onboard AC'97 audio in BIOS.
Now, when I try to connect to Win Updates, it:(IE) hangs on the loading screen at site. I have to stop it in task mangr.
Question:
Would a faulty or failing AC'97 sound device cause this trouble, or is it something in my WinXP install?
Searching MS center, I found nothing relating to this specifically. Esp. the missing 'mixer' error I am receiving.
Before I disabled AC'97 in BIOS, I had no control over sound settings in Cntrl Panel:

Not so much an issue, as a general question.

Is there a mod or update that will allow you to select which audio output device a program will use? I know some programs allow you the prioritize outputs, similar to Skype, but I am an avid fan of ... "home videos" and it would be rather embarrassing if I was watching one and it began to play through my main speakers. That might attract undue attention to my ... "home videos" if you follow.

I have tried going into the control panel and forcing the headset as the default device, but Windows is all high and mighty about using the built in speakers for some reason.

A:Sound Mixer Issues

Normally, if you plug in a headset to the front panel headset jack (on a desktop) or the headset jack on a Laptop it mutes the PC's speakers and you get "private" audio.

I don't know of anything that will allow outputting different audio on different devices. You only have one audio "card" (chip) and it's taking whatever input it is getting and converting it to audio and sending it to the speakers or headset depending on what is plugged in or selected.

When you are viewing "private" videos only have that audio playing back and control where it's heard.

Hi People

Is there a program that emulates the "Sound Mixer" ability of Vista's Volume Controller?

In Vista, when you click on the speaker in the System Tray... It opens up with the volume controller. Duh! Yeah, I know...

But under the icon is a link to open up the Sound Mixer.

This neat little feature in Vista allows the user to adjust the sounds from various active sound emitting softwares...

For example, when I used Vista for the trail period (30 days ) I would have my Avast Antivirus notification on 10 (all figures are out of 100), my Firefox on 100, Any games I play that made excessively loud noises on 10-15, etc., etc...

So, is there an emulator out there that can do this for my XP Pro SP3?

Oh, and preferrably FreeWare, or the likes... Although money is not an issue if the program has exceptional features

Thank you all a bunch for your help from now.

A:Sound Mixer Not Responding

OK, there are two different versions of your mb; ver1 and ver2. Each one has a different sound chip; ie ver1 uses via sound and ver2 uses realtek sound. Which one do you have?

Next for ver1, it looks like there were/are problems with the sound. In the notes for the sound driver, it says you must reflash the bios prior to installing the sound driver. This is most likely why the change to realtek sound in ver2.

FWIW if you have ver1 of that mb, I would purchase a real sound card. Anything via ever made was/is very low quality.

Hi, I recently discovered this item in my sound mixer and was alarmed that I didnt notice it (I use the mixer alot to adjust volume). After some researched I realized I did hear ads in the background sometimes but I had dismissed it because I thought it was one of my buddies on voice chat watching a video.
 
I have ran FRST. It seems that the notepad file was too long to fit in one post and thus disallowed me from making a thread. I will break the post into two parts if possible. FIrst part of the log:
 
*EDIT: Being unable to copy and paste all the contents of the FRST file, I have instead uploaded it as I do not want to spam the thread with excessive posts. The board seems to limit how many characters I can put in one way or another.*
 
**EDIT2: I found the problem, one of my programs is named using non alphanumeric characters, aka Japanese alphabet and the forum did not like it when I pasted that. In the attached FRST.txt file, the entry that I could not paste onto this forum is on line number 408. I have separated this copy and paste based on where that line is.

Recently my hard drive crashed leaving me to install XP sp3 on a new drive. There is no sound device listed under Device Manager. The drivers have been removed, reinstalled countless times. I have tried drivers from the motherboard manufacturer as well as Realtec. I have made sure the sound was enabled in Bios as well as when Windows starts up and it appears to be running but no sound. There is no speaker icon in the bottom right and the sound options are greyed out. I think that the onboard sound is fried. Is there a way to test or replace it without soldering? Should I just pick up a new soundcard? The motherboard is Asrock G965M-S running a Pentium dual 2.50.

A friend of mine needs help setting up a radio show online. Everything as far as broadcasting is fine, but a specific niche has a problem. We want to have people to have the ability to call in with the popular program Skype and be able to talk to the host and have their conversation go out. The issue? Whenever we want the listeners to talk on the air, we switch the mixer mode to "Stereo Mix", as to play what they're saying on the air. The issue is when people talk, they hear themselves- when what they say is played through the hosts speakers, the stereo mix option relays that back to the caller. In addition, this makes it so the host can't speak with anyone. Is our situation solveable- and preferably without a new soundcard? (If not, it would be possible to purchase one)
