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.)


Hello,I am desperate for help. My laptop will turn on. And I can type in my password. But then when the computer loads it takes a very long time and when it gets to the desktop the keyboard, the mouse, the touchpad, and the touch screen won't work. I can see everything on my desktop. But I cannot open anything or do anything at all. How can I fix this?Thank you!!!

This may be a silly question, but I have tried everything I can think of to get the microphone on my computer to work. Now I am starting to wonder if I even understand the microphone correctly. I am pretty sure the Lenovo Ideapad 310 touch-15ISK does have a built in microphone, but I guess I am not 100% sure. Does anyone in here know how I can verify that.  Also, I have tried reinstalling the audio driver and have been using forums/youtube to try and help, but I just can not get the microphone (if it exsists) to work. It shows that it is there and is called Conexant Smartaudio HD. But it does not register that I am speaking at all. Someone please help!  Here are two photos for you to see what I see. One looks like I have a built in microphone option. The other makes me think it isn't there.

Can you hook up and external microphone to a 2 in 1 laptop- Inspiron 13.3 7000 touch? does it hook into the audio? is the audio a mixed combo?


A:Inspiron 13.3 7000 2 in 1 touch laptop and microphone

Hi Carol,
Thank you for writing to the Dell Community Forum.
Yes, you can connect the microphone to the computer and the operating system should detect, when it is connected. If there is any issues, request you to please test this microphone on another system to test its functionality. If it is working fine, please uninstall the audio driver. Please use this link http://dell.to/1n3X2po, enter the service tag of the system and click on drivers & downloads. Select the operating system, download the audio driver and install on the system. Then connect the microphone and test, you may also right click on the sound icon on the system tray at the bottom right. Click on recording devices, ensure the jack mic is set as the default device. If it is not set, you may right click on it and then set it to default.
Kindly get back if there are any further queries.
For me to better assist in troubleshooting, please click my DELL-username and send me a Private Message with the Dell Service Tag number and your email address.

Does HP have any remote control app which canbe used to control volume etc.. for HP Pavilion 27-a010   

A:HP Pavilion 27-a010

If you are talking about using your phone as a remote control, then there are several apps for Android or Apple products that allow you to do this. Just search the app stores for PC and remote... you'll need to install the app on your phone and software on your PC from the app manufacturer's web site. I think Google has a remote desktop app if youhave android.

Hi i purchase the envy 34-a010, and sometimes it freezes and i have to turn it off completely. Need HELP! Thanks

Read other answers

I am wishing to upgrade the hard drive in my new Envy AIO since it came with only a 5400rpm drive to a hybrid 7200rpm. I have read from previous posts that it is difficult due to the location of the drive sitting behind the curved monitor and to access it you have to remove it. I also have watched a video on someone doing this but they didn't mention how they were able to over come the strong adhesive that attaches the bevel to the monitor without breaking the screen. Is there a documented way to remove the bevel without force? This seems to be a poor engineering design for hard drive replacement or upgrades as well as memory grades where you have to go a step furhter and remove the motherboard since the RAm is located on the back side with no access. I am a computer engineer and very hardware savy and am very concerned about opening up the system to upgrade the hard drive. Any suggestions for removing the bevel safely would be greatly appreciated.

Ok, I had purchased this computer for a job and was ok for a while now they are saying I need to upgrade the processor. Thats fine no problem there till I started doing research and found out the I can't. I only had this computer for approx 6 months I feel I was not given all info on the system when I bought it. I believed and was told it was new however after digging around the system more it is not. My question is can this system be upgraded with a new motherboard and cpu. This is the only way I can keep my job. I can't afford a new computer. I know the processor can not that is why I am asking about the motherboard in order to do the upgrade. This is the first time I ever came across this situation.

A:upgrade on slimline hp 260-a010

With the processor being non-upgradeable, a new motherboard that fits in the case would not be that difficult.  It isMini ITXDimensions: 17.0x17.0 cm (6.7x6.7 in)Just start shopping for that size motherboard that can use the Memory you have in that unit.  Then also pick an appropriate CPU.  It does not need to be in compliance as a HP replacement as the Windows will not transfer either.  Which means a new Windows install or Linux

I can not get my Mic to work with win 7 - have done all the usual (e.g. update drivers, make sure settings are correct and enabled correctly, checked the mic with other Vista and XP computers, etc.)

I've tried the built in motherboard sound as well as other sound devices (e.g. M-audio Delta 1010, Creative X-fi (PCI and USB) and Diamond).

All indications are that every thing is working OK but no sound is recorded in any of my sound recording programs.

On rare occasions there is sound at a very very low volume but the next time I try there will be no sound at all.

All play back functions work correctly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


P.S. I have a stock Gateway DX4200-09 (64-Bit) Computer with an AMD 9100e Quad Core CPU.

A:Microphone Does not work

By enabled correctly, have you checked the Sound/Recording panel in the Control Panel? Make sure whatever sound card you are using and the mic for that card is selected. With multiple sound cards enabled on a system it can also get tricky as only one card can be default for any function.

Is that Delta 1010 working OK in Win 7? I see posts about problems with that in Win7 on the Sonar forum.

Yeah I had some problems using a mic with vista running css too...Im ingame atm but it should be short and sweet.....
There are 3 things to check

1. check the mic is not identically named to any other mic and set as default
2. make sure the volume of the mic itself is turned all the way up (some programs mute it again after using it) and not turned up under the speakers in volume.
3. check the realtec website for the latest drivers or try another mic to make sure its working.

I have checked 'volume control' to make sure that the mic is not on mute.

Thanks in advance.

right click my computer, goto properties / device manager / scroll down to sound, video and game controllers, make sure you have no exclamation marks here and that the correct drivers are loaded.

You have checked volume control, have you been through all settings?? Volume up full ( mute unchecked ) Wave full ( mute unchecked ) Microphone up full ( mute unchecked )
Have you tried the microphone in any other Hi Fi equipment, check to make sure that the cable hasn't been cracked or pulled, make sure the jack plug is seated into socket fully.

I have updated my driver and updated direct x. When I go to START>SETTINGS>CTRL PANEL>MULTIMEDIA, my "record" button is grayed out. My device shows cyrstal soundfusion. All my volume settings are fine.
The second part to this problem is that I used to be able to record through ACCESSORIES>ENTERTAINMENT>RECORDER but somehow, while fooling around with my settings, I can't even use this anymore.
I have exhausted every possible FAQ's, forums and tech brains that I could.
Please??? I am at wits end here. Who will be my hero? lol

A:Microphone won't work

Boot into Safe Mode and remove all the Crystal entries from Device Manager then reboot. Have those new drivers ready.

That will force windows to redect it and hopefully make it work. As long as the mike is greyed out you won't get anywhere - so don't bother with the volume controls or anything until that is fixed.

Be sure you are plugging the Mic into the Pink (Red) Mic input jack in the back of the computer. Go to Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices/Audio/Sound Recording. Take the drop down menu and make sure your Microphone is selected. Go to the Volume button and make sure that Mic does not have a check for Mute, and the volume is all the way up.

Hi there,
I have suddenly found that my microphone is not working.
In the 'Sound & Audio Devices' Properties, only 'Stereo Mix' or 'SPDIF' can be ticked. It won't let me put a tick under 'Microphone'! And thereby lies the problem.
I have recently installed 'Freecorder' (free software that allows you to record anything that comes out of your speakers, recommended by Computeractive and which is very useful for recording streamed music and other audio content from the Internet) At first I wondered if that was causing this problem. I tried disabling all Freecorder's recording settings and suppressing it entirely in Internet Explorer, and short of actually uninstalling this very useful software, I still can't change the settings in sound & Audio Devices so that I can use my microphone in SKYPE and Windows Live messenger. I also have Audacity installed, but since I haven't used my microphone in a while, I don't know if it is Audacity or Freecorder that is the culprit.
Of course I have tested my hardware in 'Voice Recording' in Sound & Audio Devices but when I try to play back what I have recorded, there is just an awful high-pitched noise coming from the speakers, yet the test says my hardware is working properly. I know the microphone itself is working because it actually does work in Freecorder. I can record my voice and play it back! I should say, the microphone is plugged into t... Read more

Hey guys.  Today my Skullcandy Slyrs broke, and I've got my backup Skullcandy Ink'd headphones here to game with.  I've tried every possible combination for default device on playback and capture, as well as communication device and while I've gotten sound to work (despite that not working for about an hour) I can not get this mic to work.  I've tested it already and it works with other devices, I've done all the possible defaults (which was horrible as my computer says I have 5 mics yet I'm using only 1 and have disconnected devices off.)  I've done the "install generic audio device" solution to replace the IDT audio codec, yet didn't have the right options listed because apparently HP just can't have anything be the same on every computer to make things easy, yet I did install both options for other drivers on the computer and neither made any of my 5 ghost microphones work.I have spent about four hours of my day working on this, and I am in desparate need of my microphone.  I'm about ready to offer a paypal reward for whoever fixes HP's god-awful mess on my computer (how is there 5 microphones and 4 audio devices when only one audio device is connected, and why can't I plug my headphoens in and have them work like everyone else?)Thanks.

For some strange reason i cannot get a microphone to work on my computer anymore, i used to use it all the time on ventrilo and online games, but i went on vacation, and no one touched it while i was gone, but when i got back it no longer worked. i have tried 3 mics that all work on other computers, and nothing works. i thought it might be my soundcard but i bought a new motherboard(with 7.1 audio) and still nothing. my computer knows that the mic is there but it wont work. i think that this problem has something to do with ventrilo, or possibly some old audio settings hidden somewhere in my computer that are muting my microphone. i had a similar problem before but with some basic troubleshooting i got it fixed fairly easily. but this time it didnt work.
