No Internet sound but sound from files on computer works

Q: No Internet sound but sound from files on computer works

I've tried a lot of things to figure this out and it's been going on for quite awhile, still if anyone can post any reason why it won't stream sound, please do so, I want help badly.

I tried an instill of a new hard drive and made it the master drive, however I couldn't install windows from a disc (pci.sys) so instead i copied my os off of the old hard drive but everything had to be copied. (If you can tell me an install process to help me with my sound that'll work too)

youtube doesn't work.. etc
absolutely everything from the internet = no sound except if it caches a file and plays that file instead.
checked volumes, "play sound in webages", downloaded codecs, flash, updates.
post anything, please?

Preferred Solution: No Internet sound but sound from files on computer works

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.)

Each time I try to play a song or video in wmp, itunes, VLC media player, InterVideo, etc. I get absolutely no sound. Videos play, I can see the images perfectly fine, but there's silence.
However, if I want to watch a video on youtube or anywhere else online, the sound works. There's got to be a simple solution to this but I can't seem to find it. Any help? I've been putting up with this for a long time and I'd really like to finally get it sorted out.
Oh and before you ask, the media players are not muted.

A:No sound played trough speakers but sound works from headphones

If you are not able to listening any sound even error beep, then it seems hardware fault inside your system.
It may speaker goes faulty. You should consult your computer hardware vendor.

Hi. Didn't put this in Hardware b/c my hardware works perfectly. If it needs
to be moved, though, please do.

I'm a transcriber. I've noticed that with some international audio, sound
only plays out of my LEFT headphone when headphones are plugged
directly into my laptop. I know without question that there is nothing at all
wrong with either the laptop or headphones. 90% of files play through both
headphones, as expected.

When I plug my headphones into the "left" output jack in my USB audio
interface (I use it for home recording), it will spit the audio out to both
headphones. But if I go directly into the computer (or use the
"headphones" jack on the audio interface, actually), I only get sound on
the left side.

Someone else suggested that this is b/c the creator of the audio recorded
it in stereo instead of mono. Okay... but what I need to know is how to
make it so I can plug headphones directly into my laptop's headphone jack
and hear the audio on BOTH sides. (I'd rather not use the audio interface
to do that because I need the USB jack it's occupying for my foot pedal
and mouse!)

Thanks for any suggestions you can offer, as to switching either the audio
to (I guess...?) stereo (if that's the problem), or another way of getting it
to play out of both earphones when they're directly connected to the
computer.

The person who suggested this is quite correct. Unfortuantely, since the files were saved as mono, the only thing you can really do to solve the problem would be to edit the sound files using a program like Audacity.

Below is a link to show how to change the files from Mono to Stereo using Audacity.

Hi Guys,

wondering if someone can shed some light on the situation. I have recently bought an acer aspire 8930G laptop and its been fine until recently.

If im playing sound whether its on youtube or any other sound related website and open for example an mp3 via windows media player, the sound becomes muffled and slows down.

Then if I close all applications and reopen windows media to play the MP3, it says "theres no sound device installed"??

I have to then restart for it to work properly again.

I have antivirus installed etc and am very sensible in what i download..

Would this be a driver fault? or hardware?

Thanks Guys

It's very odd. It just appeared the other day and I have no idea how I caused it. Usually that means no output device detected, but it is detected and sound works.

Hovering over the sound icon it says:

Since a week now i have very frustrating problems with the sound in Windows XP. When i start my pc skype says that he hasn't found recording hardware. Itunes doesn't work, like Windows Media Player, Winamp etc. The sound is gone (and i didn't change anything )
I tried to fix it myself...and probably i messed up a bit more, cause i disabled a driver that seemed to have a problem, but i don't remember what the name was. Now not only the programs have no sound anymore, but windows is silent too... It sure wasn't the driver of my soundcard (Realtek AC'97, which works fine when i play test sounds with the realtek Sound Effect software).
I installed Everest and he doesn't find any Windows Audio, and says the realtek has "noDB" (no database i suppose).
When i am in the music tab of the "Diagnostic help program for DirectX" (or something familiar to that, while i translate it from the dutch "Diagnostisch hulpprogramma voor DirectX") "windows synthesizer" test sound doesn't play, but the realtek does.

Any ideas? Should i reinstall Windows or upgrade to vista, or is it a less hopeless situation as i'm used to think now...

Thanks a lot for you help

If this is a recent problem, try the System Restore and see if that fixes it. Restore the PC back to a date when it worked OK. If that doesn't fix it, System Restore has an "undo" function to undo the restore.

System Restore can be accessed from Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools. System Restore will not delete any user data or e-mails.

Hello fowler, and Welcome to Sevenforums.

It is probably not a very good idea to list your email in a public forum where anyone could potentially use it to send you spam (unless you want people to send you answers to your email, thus giving you their email address *Gasp* are you a spammer?). Which begs the question of why you would want someone sending you the answer via email instead of through this forum.

Now to the problem at hand for this forum. Please answer all of these questions: When did this problem start? What antivirus do you run? Have you changed any registry items? Have you installed a 3rd party firewall? Why do you have all the major browsers installed (this one just because I'm curious)? Can you go to youtube and play a video, and can you hear sound then?

Using Windows Vista. It worked fine yesterday. First of all, when I try to play any song, it puts a red X next to it and says it cannot play file, and that there may be something wrong with my sound driver. Well I checked my driver and it says it's working fine. Second thing is, I can't get any media (or sound) to work from the internet. When I go to Youtube.com (for example), it will play the clip, but the entire web page and whatever's playing will be very choppy with no sound, sometimes eventually freezing internet explorer. What in the world is going on here??

I bought a Philips Ultimate Edge 5.1 sound card a while ago to take advantage of my 5.1 100 watt computer speakers, and it worked great... now i sold my speakers and bought an Onkyo HTS580 (it's a receiver and speaker set that people use for home theaters), and i bought digital coaxial audio cable to connect the S/pdif output on the card to the Digital Coaxial input on the reciever... i made sure to enable the s/pdif output on the sound card, yet i'm not getting any sound out of my speakers.

i thought i read somewhere that the Philips Ultimate Edge sound card is missing some kind of "patch cable for the s/pdif" or something like that, so i want to know if there is anyting that i need to buy to make sure that the S/pdif out on the sound card works, or if i need to buy another sound card or what...

I have a Satellite C850-101 running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1

When I turn the laptop back on from Shut Down, no sound comes from the speakers or from the headphones.

If I restart the laptop the speakers and headphones work fine.

So every time I turn my laptop on, the speakers do not work and they will only function again when I restart..

A little investigation of this problem shows the following...

Whenever I turn my laptop on and go to Control Panel->Hardware and Sound->Manage Audio Devices I see two items:

1) "Speakers - High Definition Audio Device - Not plugged in" with a greyed out speaker icon with a red arrow.

2) "Digital Audio (S/PDIF) - High Definition Audio Device - Default device" with a coloured external amplifier icon (looks a bit like a DVD player) with a green tick. There is an audio level icon next to it which does show sound whenever sound is played on my laptop, but no sound is audible either through my speakers or headphones. I believe this is for the HDMI connection

Whenever I subsequently reboot my laptop and go to Control Panel->Hardware and Sound->Manage Audio Devices I see one item:
"Speakers - Realtek High Definition Audio - Default Device" with a coloured speaker icon and a green tick. The sound works perfectly fine.

I have uninstalled the sound drivers, reinstalled them from the Toshiba website and also downloaded and installed the latest drivers from Realtek.

Hello.

A few months ago my computer was doing terribly and, after coming to this forum and following the advice, my computer was fixed (I had a rootkit infection.)

Just the other day, my music was playing no problem. I could listen to music on my website, and in Winamp like I always do. Today, I go to listen to it, and I can't hear anything! My sound is not on mute- I checked all the sound settings, and it makes noise, so I don't think it's my audio card. Could it be possible that it's a CODEC problem? None of my music is working and it's awful because I listen to music everyday. It's really upsetting me. I've tried restarting my computer multiple times- it didn't work. What could be causing the issue?

I'm not sure if this could have anything to do with my problem, but yesterday I opened up a .mpg file in Windows Media Player 11 because the sound didn't work in my Winamp when I tried it (that wasn't when the problem started- music on the internet worked), and it worked in WMP. However, after I close it and go to listen to music, it doesn't work! I doubt that had anything to do with it, or it might have, but please help.

A:Sound System Works But No Sound

When you say that the device drivers are working, how did you confirm this? Was it through device manager?

Assuming you are using a sound card, the first thing I would do is make sure that it is seated correctly in the slot - cards can get loose on the rare occasion. If you do that, just make sure you discharge any bodily static first.

Then I would download and install the latest drivers from the manufacturer (if its onboard, download from mobo site).

Hope it helps a little!

Greetings all,

Does anyone know what happened to the SOUND RECORDER program that was in the previous versions of Windows?

I was previously on Windows 7 and upgraded to 10 when the notifications came out last month. In W7 I was able to open the SOUND RECORDER program

and then record sounds from the video that was playing through the internet explorer I was using at that time. It did NOT matter which internet explorer I was using, be it IE or CHROME or FIREFOX, etc. I was previously able to open a video, for example youtube, and then record the sound that was playing into the SOUND RECORDER program, and then save that file on my desktop as a WMA.

I have not been able to find the SOUND RECORDER program in Windows 10. Is it gone? I've tried downloading a couple freebie programs that are similar to it, but they're not recording the sounds either. So now I'm thinking maybe Windows 10 bypassed or simply disregarded my sound card altogether, ? Is that a possibility?

Thank you all for your comments, please do not be offended if I do not respond to your questions. I think I've been pretty straight forward in what I'm asking.

Thank you for your help, it's much appreciated.

I am clean now (the person who helped me said so) but in the process of cleaning my computer, I encountered a new problem: no system sound.The person who helped me did not know how to fix this, so he suggested I go to the vista forum to get specialized help.

- I also do not get any sound from onlline video sites like Youtube.
-However, I am able to play songs and other music through media player.

-Installed latest Flash player version
-Tried different browsers (Chrome, IE8 and Firefox)
-Reinstalled my Realtek audio drivers
-Rolledback drivers

But nothing seems to work.

my computer has no sound. I cannot figure out why. I reinstalled my Avance AC'97 sound driver and no luck. the speakers work fine. does anyone know what i can do? I didn't change anything before the sound went out. It just isn't there.
 

A:No sound from computer, speakers work fine... Avance AC'97 sound

physically check your cables, as usually this problem is caused by human error. next, check all of your volumes. what OS, service pack, and version are you running?

I have no applications running at all in Windows. I have the system sound muted, but I still have some sound coming out of the speakers. It sounds like some talk radio. I also have all networking disabled. I have no idea where this is coming from.

How can I tell if any process on my computer is accessing the sound drivers?
 

A:Solved: computer sound muted but sound is still coming from speakers

In some cases, if the speakers are cheaply made and not sheilded, they can acutally pickup radio waves (especially if you live near a radio tower). Does the "Talk radio" continue if the speakers are on, while the computer is off?

They usually happen at about a 1 second rate. The computer starts slowing down ONLY when anything with audio is being played. The sound gets all distorted and the mouse starts moving around at like 5fps instead of its super smooth rate. For instance, it takes about 5 seconds from the windows welcome screen to simply showing my desktop picture. This happens for EVERYTHING that plays sound on my computer, whether it be youtube, or iTunes, Counterstrike, even emulators like ZSNES slow down. Some of these aren't insanely slowed down but the ones that take a bit more CPU to process like CS:S would majorly slow it down, or fullscreening a video or something may slow down the playback rate.

Hi, I'm asking for your help to get my sound back. I'm not getting any sound from my speakers whatsoever, but when i checked my device manager, my computer says that my sound drive is working properly and is up-to-date on its driver. I recently lost my sound after installing a Logitec Quick Cam Pro 5000. What do I do?

do check your volume [might be muted or volume down]; likewise, check your audio connections

So, I have windows xp, and a week ago the sound on some things on the computer stopped working, like the windows sound when it turns on and off, and the sound on internet, which means I can't watch videos, or listen to music.
What had gone aswell was the sound of my vlc player but I uninstalled it, and installed it again, and the sound worked only on vlc, not on internet.
On the rest of the programs on the computer like itunes windows media player..etc. it does work!
So if anyone could think of a solution it would be REALLY HELPFULL!

Cheers all,

Problem is as stated in the thread; I downloaded, untar'd and set the theme up today. I know it's specifically the "Close Window" sound since it's unique from the others. I'm referring to the following actions in particular (there may be more things I could do to proc it, but I haven't checked yet)...
Opening a Program
Opening a Folder in Windows Explorer
Starting a new Windows Explorer Session
Closing a Window (expected function)
Closing a Windows Explorer Session (expected function)
Those not followed by (expected function) have a different sound assigned to them, although the Close Window sound plays anyways. Not always immediately after the action is performed, either - there can be anywhere from a 1 to 15 second delay before the .wav plays.

The sounds are located in C:\Windows\Media\AltimitOS\ with AltimitOS being a custom folder I copied in. I originally untar'd everything to the desktop, then created and moved everything into the folder and tried running the theme from there. I've made sure all file paths are leading to the \Media\AltimitOS folder.

Any help is appreciated. Cheers,
-Kalts.

A:Custom Sound Scheme: Close Window Sound Plays Instead of Chosen Sound

As this is a 3rd party app, it sounds like it is buggy. Does the Windows schemes work OK? If so, that puts it back to the buggy app.

I would go back to the app developer for assistance.

This is about sound issues from the computer as in cant get sound from the comptuer.
Went to computer properties then multi media controller has yellow question mark next to it so tried to update driver it goes to the wizard but it will not find any drivers for it without a cd which dont have.
Tried roll back drivers says no drivers are backed up on file.
Went to sound audio video game controllers audio codecs says all the codecs are working for this computer.
Control panel sound audio says no sound device is connected.
Its also a problem because cannot access volume control either as media controller are not installed.
Thought it might be a motherboard issue so went to download to everest and got the chipset drivers for it.
That was simple enough but when went to foxconn and installed audio drivers for the motherboard because think it runs through the motherboard foxconn P4M800P7M8 from foxconn site.
The sound card is realtek ALC655 AC 97 enhanced audio controller.
Again got these drivers from foxxconn and exactly same issues.
Extracted the files easily enough from wizard but when go to exe run folder the run it says cannot find setupfilex.dll
Then go to gxdver it dont do anything.
Go to exe icon run and logger then it goes cannot run please find the setup exe file from the directory.
In the folders cannot seem to find anything that will install the actual drivers without a conflicting issue somewhere.
So everytime download this compressed driver folders for the drivers... Read more

Back around the first of the year I sent my xps 17 L1702x back to the depot to replace a bad motherboard. Ever since then I have noticed a buzzing sound in the speakers when the volume is half way up or louder. I can press down on the top of the hand rest area, and the buzzing stops Has anyone else experienced this problem? I would hate to have to send the computer back to the depot for this but it's driving me crazy!

Hello! I have a small issue. Basically, I have a Compaq desktop for about five years now. I've never had a problem with my computer before until my speakers stopped working. My computer has been soundless for two months until today when i finally purchased some speakers. I followed the instructions on how to set it up to a tee. I turned on the subwoofer and find that I still cannot hear anything. I restarted and turn off my computer twice and reconnect the sound system twice and still no sound. I just don't know what to do at this point. I'm hoping I'm missing something small and was hoping you could help me figure it out.
