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.)

My Thinkpad s3 Yoga 14 laptop stuck on mute. The soundbar to the right displays mute and the soundbar itself won't go away. On startup the mute LED light keeps flickering. The laptop lags and I have to go to task manager to End the processes "Thinkpad Message Client Loader" and and "Thinkpad message Receiver for Shortcut Hot Keys" for the the laptop to stop lagging (CPU is 100% on startup for some reason which may account for the reason of lagging). I have updated every driver with Driver Easy and Lenovo System Update. I have tried disabling then renabling and rolling back audio drivers but to no avail. I even uninstalled then reinstalled audio drivers. I have also gone to volume mixer, playback devices and recording devices but according to it the speaker works fine. I tried adjusting the volume in volume mixer but it keeps coming back down just as always.  The main problem is that the sound is stuck on mute and I just want it resolved. I have gone through days searching through Lenovo forums on what to do.

This issue became more apparent recently while I was listening to music. My laptop shut off the screen and locked as usual, and soon after I could hear intermittent crackling noises. When I went back into my laptop the noises stop. This also happens whenever I wake up my laptop from sleep mode and that system-sound plays. Has anyone experienced this?  I bought my laptop a few months ago and all my drivers are up-to-date. I'm running everything as it was shipped minus my Elementary OS installation (I dual-boot).

I find System Sounds does not stay at 0 volume or muted, with one exception: when volume mixer is open.

When I close the volume mixer and open a program that requires UAC, the chime is at "full" volume of selected device's volume setting.

As examples, Piriform's CCleaner and Revo's Uninstaller chime and reset the volume to "full" while Auslogics' Disk Defrag does not reset the volume but nevertheless chimes.

Is this a lost cause?

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.

Hi, Team. It has been 24-hrs since I found out my thinkpad is not turning on.I have used this last Saturday afternoon and shut down completely.I never ever put my TP into sleep mode or hibernate mode. When I woke up yesterday, 11am I found out that the Fn, Mute and Microphone keys are lit up. The fan is not working (the entire system is off). The temperature of the laptop is normal, not warm or heating up like it is being used. I have removed the external battery and power adapter, pushed the power button for more than 3mins., put back the battery and plugged the power adapter (the power button blinks when I plug the power adapter as it usually does when) and pushed the power button back - nothing happens. The Fn, Mute and Microphone buttons are still lit up and the TP is not turning on.I haven't pushed the emergency reset button at the back (I fear that I might lose all my files).Up until now, the same 3-keys are lit up. I need help as soon as possible.

It happened before, and someone pointed to a note somewhere that specified a keystroke combination to turn it off, but I can't remember the keystroke. Note: It wasn't a driver issue or any of the other solutions people post regarding this issue, just a simple keystroke that's laid out ... somewhere ... I can't find it in the user guide. Any ideas?

I have a strange issue with my Yoga 460; when I mute (either through via the hotkey or via Windows volume control), mute goes on for a fraction of a second (the light flickers briefly) then immediately unmutes. It was doing this before and after the Win 10 Creator's update. I was on the latest drivers according to TVSU; albeit since the creator's update TVSU seems to either be broken, or not finding any drivers. Any ideas?

Hi, I'm very happy with my brand new Yoga 370. Much nicer display than my old Yoga 12.Type 20JHStock Lenovo install of Win 10 Pro that I switched to Windows Insider/Fast Ring...Build 16199.rs_prerelease.170513-2252. No USB or external speakers/headset connected. When I press F1 the light on the key comes on, and the speaker icon changes to show speakers muted. However, any app or program that makes sound still makes the sound. So the speakers aren't really muted. This works just fine on my old Yoga 12 on the same OS build, same apps, etc. Any ideas? Thanks! Greg C

Yoga 370: I found some older forum threads about this but hope that this has been addressed by Lenovo lately - sorry if there are new threads that I've missed. I have swapped the Ctrl and Fn keys' functionalities in BIOS. Now I wonder if it's possible to replace those two keys with new original Lenovo keycaps with matching labels, i.e. a "Ctrl" labeled key cap at the current "Fn"-key's place and vice versa. Or are label stickers still the only option? Thanks.

Hi there, I own a ThinkPad W541 in basically stock condition (only alteration has been to add a second 8GB Samsung DDR3 stick, same part number, and a 1TB Hitachi internal 2.5" hard drive in the Ultra Bay since I don't need the optical drive). I am running Windows 7 Professional x64 with the latest drivers for all devices as provided by Lenovo System Update. My issue is that I'm attempting to make use of the Intel Quick Sync video encoding capability that's part of the Intel Core i7-4810MQ CPU in this laptop (it's actually provided by the Intel HD 4600 GPU) and I'm not having any luck whatsoever.As noted, the drivers currently in use for the Intel HD 4600 GPU are the ones provided by Lenovo itself:  23.21.13.8875 (NVIDIA Graphics Driver)
1.3.36.6 (NVIDIA HD Audio Driver)
10.18.14.4414 (Intel Graphics Driver)
6.16.00.3174 (Intel HD Audio Driver) and so far as noted I've had zero success with getting Quick Sync to function. I'm attempting to use the standalone x264 encoder, and I've also attempted to use HandBrake which does see that the Quick Sync encoder IS there and IS available (this snippet of the HandBrake encoding log is offered as proof): [05:22:57] CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4810MQ CPU @ 2.80GHz[05:22:57] - Intel microarchitecture Haswell[05:22:57] - logical processor count: 8[05:22:57] Intel Quick Sync Video support: yes[05:22:57] - Intel Media SDK hardware: API 1.17 (minimum: 1.3)[05:22:57] - H.264 encoder: yes[05:22:57] - prefe...

I am installing updates on a T400 system running WIndows 7 Pro 64-bit. The system has been freshly factory restored and all features work properly... After running System Restore to update to the latest drivers and recommended software, I find Thinkpad Hotkey Features Integration 3.89.0000 breaks features. I am able to use Hotkeys to change brightness up/down, Fn+F5, Fn+F6, etc. The volume up and down keys work to change volume. The mute button does not work at all! There is no On Screen Display to show the adjustment settings for any Hotkeys. I have found that installing the older 3.88.0000 (8jvu40ww.exe) version of ThinkPad Hotkey Features Integration works successfully with mute button functionality as well as the On Screen Display features. Comparing what is different between the 3.89.0000 and 3.88.0000 versions, I find On Screen Display version and Full Screen Magnifier have advanced.

A:ThinkPad Hotkey Features Integration 3.89.0000 On Screen Display and Mute Button Fail

I have three T410 laptops. Two of them have intel graphics and one has an nvidia graphics chip. I have the exact same problem as RChesley with the two that have the Intel graphics. The latest Hotkey Features Integration driver 3.89 from system update has disabled my on screen display. Removing it with windows system restore brought it back. Uninstalling it and installing an earlier version would not work. My T410 with the Nividia graphics chip does not have this problem. It has the 3.89 Hotkey Driver installed and the on screen display works fine. My two T410s with the Intel graphics do have the latest Intel graphics drivers offered by Lenovo System Update. Lenovo System Update indicates that the 3.89 driver is required in order to install the latest power manager driver which enables the CPU turbo boost. I would like to have turbo boost working. I just figured out how to correct the corruption of the Lenovo Toolbox from an incorrect driver that was pushed by Lenovo System Update, now I have this to deal with. I would appreciate it if Lenovo would look into this and report back on this thread.

However I cannot be sure it was not a Lenovo update or a Lenovo update hidden in a windows 10 udpate.  All I know is my volume buttons don't work correctly now.  Some specifics.... Holding the function key and hitting escape toggles the fn behaviour.However the light on the mute button never goes off although it does mute and Un mute the volume. It also brings up the onscreen volume display which you can touch and change volume crudely.However while the mute button toggles muting the volume....Although the light stays on....the volume up and down buttons also mute and unmute vs. raising and lowering volume!!!I saw the comment that in windows 10 these buttons are controlled by windows. However not sure why only lenovo has issues with their functions keys after oem or Windows updates.Thanks for any help.BJBBJB

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.
Hope somebody can help me fix this.
Thanks.

A:W7 does not play any sounds. Need help.

Hello Halfbaked,

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 !

Windows XP Home Edition
IE 7
Windows Media Player 11
(All of these installed a week ago)

Issue:
Webpages with mp3 backgrounds (i.e., bgsound) are not played by IE7; there is no sound.

What works:- Playing the same file directly from my PC (no IE).
- Get sound OK from this webpage using another PC.
- Get sound OK playing YouTube vids

Checked:- Browser Setting - Playing sound from webpages is enabled.
- Volume: All volumes up; no volumes muted.

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.

Add-Ons listed by IE [toolbarcop.exe not runnable]:
Adobe PDF Link Helper
Diagnose Connection Problems...
HP Clipbook
HP Print Clips
HP Print Enhancer
HP Smart Select
NitroPDFBHO Class
PDF Download
PDF Download - Options
Shockwave Flash Object
Windows Messenger

I don't see a Windows Media Player ActiveX listed. Should there be?

Thanks

A:IE doesn't play sounds

Try to use that web site with the Mizilla firefox , it working , then its a case with internet explorer , for that sake , open the internet explorer Tools > internet options > advaced . and click on the reset. it will solve your issue .
But if that is not playing then its a case of device drivers . on the computer .

Hi,. i for some reason cannot get my windows sounds to play. In the control panel/sounds and audio devices box, it is set to play them. But for soem reason doesnt. It also doesnt preview them. All other sound play, and when i manually play the files via c:/windows/media they play fine through windows media player. Can anyone help with this?? I have also noticed i can't seem to get sounds to play through webpages. For example, www.ebaumsworld.com, none of the sounds from there will play. Any help would be appreciated, thanks

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?

Not even a "Sorry, that's not possible?"

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

FIXED!

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!

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.

A:Powerpoint Won't Play Sounds?

What version of PowerPoint are you using?

Are you sure the sound has NOT been "muted' on this system?

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.
 

A:Sounds ONLY play from files?

Take the computer back to the repair shop. They shouldn't charge you to fix this sound issue

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.
