I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong here. I connect my Ipod to my home stereo using a common miniplug to rca adapter, and it sounds great.

When I listen to music on my new laptop with my shiny expensive headphones - it sounds great.

But, when I plug my laptop into the same miniplug-rca I get a humming sound over my home stereo speakers.

I don' think there is anything wrong with my laptop, cause it makes great sound form it's little speakers; great sound from louzy ear bud headphones; and really great sound with my good headphones.

Any suggestions?
 

A:Connecting laptop to home stereo trouble

hmmm...
do you mean that:
there's humming sounds present
AND / OR?
the sound output quality is bad?

for the humming sound, it could be because your output impedance between headphone and home stereo is not the same. especially if your home stereo has a big powerful amp.

in this case, try to update the sound card driver. however case related to electrical current is difficult to solve. hope some professional would come to take a peek at this thread

I've been trying to hook up my computer's audio output to my home stereo and have also tried with a portable stereo. I can use the same cables with my iPod and get perfect sound but with the computer's Line Out or headphone jack I get a low hum and a higher buzzing noise out of the stereo. When I use amplified computer speakers (small R&L with subwoofer,) the sound is great. I've also tried connecting to the headphone jack on my computer speakers and I get the same problem. Can anyone explain this and how I can fix it?

I have connected my Desktop PC to my audio receiver so I can play music on Itunes and have it heard in several rooms that are wired to my stereo system. Right now I use the 1/8" stereo headphone jack on my computer as the audio out and a Y connector that has 2 RCA males that connect to the receiver. It works, but when I plug into the headphone jack the speakers are muted, and I also have to raise the audio levels way up to get good sound. The problem with this is I need to disconnect that cable AND lower the levels back down when I'm done to resume normal computer operation. I would like to change the settings on the computer so that plugging into the headphone jack DOES NOT mute the speakers... AND be able to set separate levels for the headphone out and the speakers. Can this be done? I have also seen USB-to-RCA cables that seem like they would work, but I'm not sure how to "tell" the computer to send audio out of a particular USB port, and how to set an audio level on that port. Since most DJ's use laptops to play music to their amps, I know this has to be feasible, but I haven't yet found out how. Thanks to anyone who can help!

A cable with a USB plug on one end, RCA plugs on the other end, and without any kind of active electronic circuitry will not work. Analog audio outputs are not part of any USB standard.

Some professional DJ software supports using an external USB based audio controller that has a headphone output. This allows the DJ to pre-listen to music selections with their headphones, while driving their amplifiers with the current music selection from the laptop's built-in headphone jack.

This is driving me insane! I download (legally thru Napster) lots and lots of songs. I burn them onto CDs which play beautifully in my car stereo and my home stereo. I can even play them on my DVD player and my PlayStation. However, when I put them back into the CD ROM drive in which they were created they will not play. The light will continue to flash, indicating that the drive is attempting to read the disc but it never will. Blank CDs fire up without hesitation every time, as do audio CDs I have bought and software I have bought. The only discs I have a problem with are the ones I burn. I use Windows Media Player, Maxell discs... I've also tried Real Player and Roxio, I've also tried using other discs. Does anyone have any thoughts, suggestions, ideas... Please help! Thanks
 

A:Burned CDs play in car/home stereo, not in CDROM drive

That is strange, it's usually the other way around.

What happens if you burn a audio CD with tracks ripped from regular commercial discs? Can you explore the disc from My computer?

What I'm getting at here is the only thing I can think of that would cause that is if there is some kind of protecttion on the disc. You can try this really quick, hold the shift key in when you insert the disc. Hold it in until the disc is ready then try to play it. That will prevent any files from auto executing on the disc which is one way they try and keep you from copying... never heard of it used to keep you from hearing it though.

I have no audio, but when I go to (right-click sound icon in tray) --> Playback Devices --> Playback tab --> right click "Speakers / Headphones Realtek High Definition Audio" --> Configure, then in Speaker Setup dialog:
* If I select Quadraphonic in the "Audio channels" list, I hear sound for the RL (rear-left) and RR (rear-right) speakers, with my stereo speakers plugged into the black jack in back. I cannot get sound when testing the regular L and R speakers in Quadraphonic mode; I've tried all 5 jacks.
* When I select Stereo, then clicking L or R speaker icon to test results in no sound, again no matter which of the 5 jacks i plug my stereo speakers into.
* So the only way I have sound is in Quadraphonic mode, but only for the back speakers. Therefore I cannot hear regular stereo output from applications, such as Youtube in Chrome.
This seems like a bug, or a highly unintuitive aspect of Realtek's or Dell's software at best. Any ideas on how to solve? (Beside buying full surround sound speakers)

If you want a technical answer look here

http://harmsy.freeuk.com/mostync/

and here

http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=31963&hl=stereo+joint

(it starts a bit flamey, but gets more interesting towards the end)

As for which to use, thats really a personal choice, many will say to go for true stereo, because that is more like the original. However, that isn't necessarily true. It is possible to recreate the original sound via joint stereo (all my music is stored in lossless format and uses JS), and JS performs better under compression than true stereo. Therefore, JS should out perform Stereo in any given amount of data, or, if the quality is the same, the JS compression will give more data to other parts of the track. (I hope that makes sense).

You need to bear in mind that there is only so much data to provide for the track, good compression concentrates the data where it is needed. JS allows more data to be used by more important or noticeable elements in the track.

Of course the best way to find out is to test it yourself and run ABX tests.

Hi,

I'm helping a friend to set up their BT Home Hub but can't seem to get the PC to connect to it. Unfortunately I have little experience in this so am not really much help!

Everything is wired up correctly and the right lights come on on the Hub when its switched on. The software installs fine but it cannot find a connection.

The PC is running windows XP and used to connect fine with a BT voyager router. There is various security software installed on the computer.

My guess is that something already installed on the computer is causing the problem but I don't know what. I don't use my windows machine to connect to the internet so I'm not really sure what to do next.

My questions are as follows:

1) Is it likely to be the security or old BT software causing the problem?

2) If it is, is there a way of disabling it all without removing the software. If not should I just go ahead and remove it all? (I'm sure the new hub comes with its own security).

3)If my guess is wrong what else could it be? Its supposed to be simple to set up so I think something must be wrong somewhere rather than me being daft (although I haven't ruled that out just yet!!! ).

If it was my own PC I'd just blunder around trying things until I got it working. Its not though, so hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

I'd really appreciate any help you can give.

Thanks in advance

Hi and welcome

I suspect your problem has to do with homegroup. when you set up networking in the windows install you chose a "home network" makes sense. Homenetwork however assumes all computers will be win 7.

To resolve the problem go to network and shaing where you set up networking in the first place and choose a work network instead. You can also turn off IPv6 as it is only needed in homegroup

In workgroup xp sees win 7, and win 7 sees XP

Let us know if this doesnt work

For a while Im trying to find a solution to put together my home cinema and my pc.Simple reason is to get 5.1 sound from my computer.I have Asrock motherboard HM61-DGS with integrated sound card.Also have an old Creative SB0220 but I hear there is no way for Win 7 to work with it.My Home Theatre is some strange Texoni mark.For now Im getting a sound but no surround.I put together via rca jack.As,I hope it will be seen in a picture, HT has some coax out.And if somebody know which cabl to use to connect together.
Tnx in advance.cheers

A:Connecting home theatre to pc

Hi goga. Hard to tell from your picture but I think you may only be able to connect 2 channel stereo to the Texoni . A Google search does not provide much info on this home theater unit. The Digital Coax Out on the Texoni is to output a digital signal to another compatible unit. It cannot be used as a input so you are out of luck here

Your Creative SB0220 is an older PCI connection which your motherboard does not support. So even if you could find Win 7 drivers this would not work. Besides, it would not offer surround sound if used with your Texoni.

I?m sure you don?t want to hear this but to get Surround Sound from your PC to your stereo you will need to purchase a Home Theater Receiver that offers 5.1 input connections.

At our office we have mostly XP computers, with a Vista laptop, 3 7 Pro and a Windows Home Server. All the computers communicate fine, except the 7 Home laptop. It can only see the 7 Pro computers and the Vista machine. It can ping all the other computers, but they will not show up in the network neighborhood. When I tried to map the server shares, it didn't work despite being able to see it under the "Other Devices".

The 7 Home laptop has network discovery turned on and all the XP clients have LLTD installed.

I can't figure out why the 7 Pro machines are having no problem, and all the computers can see the 7 Home laptop. Any help is appreciated.

A:Connecting to workgroup with 7 Home

I have had a similar problem and have found the following to help:

Start > Run > gpedit.msc > Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Option > Double-click ‘Network Security: LAN Manager authentication level’

Under the Local Security Setting’s tab choose ‘Send LM & NTLM – use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated’.

Reboot.

do this on all machines in the workgroup

I was able to work from home. I have office 03 and it works great on other computers including another at home unit. What steps do I need to check because nothing works for me. The only way I can get on to see my work is to do a remote connection. What do I do.
 

A:Connecting to work from home

Would need a lot more info.

Your "work" will probably be firewalled?
What are you trying to connect to, a server at work?
How are you trying to connect?
Has provision been made by the "work" IT people (VPN etc) for you to access any server?

XP home does not support Domains. So... effectively, no.

Hi All,

I have a UTSTARCOM 300r2u configured as a router to distribute my internet connection between a desktop and a laptop.

I have installed a no-ip.com client so that i can access my desktop without having to worry about the dynamic ip with which my router is configured. The problem is that i am able to connect to my router when i type my hostname http://<something>.no-ip.com.

Even though i've tried port forwarding(donno if what i did was correct!), i am unable to access the shared drives on my desktop from outside my Home lan. I tried easy fileshare webserver, but even then when i type my hostname it automatically goes to the homepage of my router, not the homepage of the Easy fileshare webserver...

Can someone please help me in configuring this router so i can access my desktop from other networks???

Here is the situation: I am living at an apartment complex that uses a single connection for the same building (at least). This connection is hooked into a router that reassigns IP addresses for that building. For instance: IP addresses in this building will be something like 172.16.X.X. Everyone has the same external IP address past the router-assigned IP address.

Since I do not have access to the devices, I am unsure how to connect to a home server outside (or for that matter, inside) the network. I have successfully implemented a TeamSpeak server in which both someone inside and outside the network were able to connect, but this does nothing to help me in the current situation.

I would also like to mention that I am hooked up to a home router, which assigns the IP addresses 10.0.0.X.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated

Well, I am new entry to this forum.

I have two dos computers and one XP Home machine. They are connected using a Hub

I installed Microsoft Network client 3.0 (with Tcp/ip) but could not connect to XP machine from Dos machine.
I am going to use dos programs in XP Machine

Please help me what to do to connect to XP machine. A detailed tutorial may be helpful.
 

A:help: Connecting Dos client to XP Home

I'm somewhat confused. How exactly are you going to use those DOS programs on the XP machine?

A detailed tutorial will be difficult, since MS-DOS networking requires manual configuration, and it will depend on the specific NIC you have, and the drivers in question.

How about telling us what you want to accomplish?

After reading much about the values of having a window boot cd such as "Ultimate Boot cd for Windows ver 2.5" I finally created the boot cd based on Bart's PE. I thought that if anything ever went wrong with one of the two home XP SP2 machines I could use the boot cd to transfer important files via the home network by accessing the "Network Configurator" to easily transfer the files.

Well the boot cd works perfectly, but after many hours of trying I just can't access the local network. Inside the configurator under Map Network Drive there are boxes such as:
Network Path:
User Name:
Password:

I have tried many combinations relative to the HOME network accounts but have failed in connecting to the network.

The HOME system connects via a D-Link cable router DI-704P

I would be very pleased if some has been successful in connecting their home network in the way I have described.

Thanks,

have you made sure to:
a.: set up shell accounts of each account on the seperate computers
b.: you can also select a box in "administrative tools - users and accounts" so that you do not need to type in a username and pasword to access.
also check your firewall

Hi.

So basically, I'm having issues connecting two computers. One has XP Home Edition, and the other has XP Professional. Both connect to the internet just fine, but are unable to connect to each other.

I've tried just about everything, on every support website, and paying Microsoft for help is beyond insane. I'm basically at the point that I'm glad I shave my head, or I'd be pulling my hair out.

When I view the workgroup computers on the XP Pro machine, I can see both computers. I can access every file on the XP Pro machine, from the XP Pro machine, but unable to access the XP Home machine, despite being able to see it in the list.

When I try to access the XP Home machine, I get the infamous 'Access denied due to permissions' message. I've checked permissions, and both machines are set to Full Control. Both machines require no password to login to. Both are on a non-wireless router, and the router has no firewall settings from what I could see.

XP Home machine, can't even access the workgroup, yet the XP Pro machine can. XP Home gets an error stating the workgroup isn't accessable, then says "Network Path not found". How can that be, if I can see the machine on the XP Pro machine?

I just want to transfer files between my machines, and I'm fairly sure I have everything set up correctly, but apparently I don't have permission (from myself? ) to access my own computer across a network.

I'm honest... Read more

I have an IBM Thinkpad 760E with a 36K modem. I need to be able to connect to AOL when I am away from home and my phone line. What do I need to do or purchase to be able to connect from my car? I have a slot (PCMCIA slot I think) on the side. Any help is appreciated.
