lost voice!!!

Q: lost voice!!!

my speech icon has vanished in control panel and if i use the narrator i dont hear nothing now.All the other sound works fine.I do recall a window popping up
saying my CD ROM boot record needed sorting and prompting me to put XP disk in....Now i dont have the disk and i cant access the XP file in the 1386 file(system32)as advised on ask leo because it tells me that the system im using
is more up to date than the one on file(not that id have known what to do)
This might be because ive upgraded this old thing with sp2(not that THATS todays news!!)...........anyway i dont NEED the speech function i just WANT it !!!
and NO BOOT RECORD messages about my cdrom(?)sounds quite worrying!!
I`ll NEED to stop fiddling with things to see what they do!!!!!!!!

Preferred Solution: lost voice!!!

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.)

I recently had to use the factory provided rescue disk to get my laptop working again. Now that it's back up everything works fine, but I don't have any sound. I can burn a CD and play it on my stereo, but not on the laptop. I checked the device manager and it has a yellow triangle next to the "Multimedia Audio Controller". It indicates that there is no driver present for that device. I checked with Gateway and Microsoft and they both have drivers which are supposed to work but are either already on my computer or don't work. What do I do now?

Bottom line problems:

Direct Play Voice Setup will not work so I can't use Game Voice...0x80004005 error
Because I was over diligent in registry editing, I am now having IE6.0 crashes because of "nmtracer.dll"
I need to reinstall Dreamweaver MX, Extension Manager, and PCAnywhere because of my work.

On January 25, 2004, I posted to the Microsoft Hardware DirectX General Discussion message board:

"I use Microsoft SideWinder Game Voice 1.5 to chat with fellow gamesters.

The last time I successfully used it to join a chat was January 3, 2004. I had installed and used PCAnywhere on January 2 with no problems, but did end up uninstalling it on January 24. On January 4, I installed Dreamweaver MX and Extension Manager. On January 17, I could not join a chat on Game Voice, nor would the program shut down automatically, I had to force it to close via Task Manager. The next time I tried to launch it, I received an error message that said "Game Voice encountered an error with the speech recognition engine. Please correct the command. If this doesn't work, try reinstalling Game Voice." There is no place to "correct the command" so I uninstalled and reinstalled Game Voice multiple times.

I tried to do a System Restore to January 1, 2, 3, or 4 but it would not work. I uninstalled Dreamweaver MX and Extension Manager. On January 24, I upgraded to DirectX 9.0b. I set a system restore before I upgraded but my system won't go back. I rein... Read more

This modem is the HIRO Model H50113, which worked well in Windows Vista and Windows7, but as soon as I upgraded to Windows 10, the new operating system deleted the driver that makes my voice capabilities work on the modem, so it FAILS in voice functions. It is not possible to add that driver back, since the OS kills it like a virus. I noticed the driver I'd used is no longer in the drivers list, and I've heard from HIRO that this is happening MORE and MORE, for those whose Windows 10 version is 1511 IOS Build 1058635. Until Microsoft fixes this, my ability to send and receive voicemail with this modem is DEAD. Microsoft should finalize and update another Windows 10 build, to correct this destructive effect.

A:Upgraded to W10 & VOICE part of my voice/fax modem FAILS. Anyone else?

I wouldn't expect Microsoft to update Windows 10 to resolve an error with third-party hardware. Usually, the hardware vendor would update their drivers to be compatible with Windows.

What drivers were you using? I see that Hiro has Windows 10 drivers for the H50113, but they pre-date the November (1511) update.

Basically, whenever someone sends me a voice clip, I can hear the sound perfectly. No added noises, only what the person inputs themselves.

However, when speaking directly with someone (voice chat, video chat), the sound, their voices, everything I hear from them is very static-y and buzzy.
What makes me even more frustrated is that this problem isn't present in a Skype chat... Skype chats work perfectly, and they're just the same as MSN voice chats...

Please help me out, I would be really greatful.

I've hit a dead end on this program. IF you don't know voice changer (just like the name) can change your voice live as it happens. A friend of mine has the same program and when he changes his voice, and talks over the mic, I hear it just fine. No static or anything. Just like it's suppose to.

However when I do it..no. To me, I sound like I'm suppose to. I've tested it by recording myself, playback, ect ect. It seems like its perfect until it leaves my computer. I talk and the playback is perfect, what he hears is static, annoying, not even a language. Very hard for him to understand me. Doesn't matter what program we use or what mic I use. It just doesn't reach him like I hear it.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. -Thanks.

I posted a question several weeks ago - unfortunately though I cannot seem to find it. I asked if anyone knew how to enable PC voice to PC voice conversations through Messenger from a PC behind a home network firewall.

Well, after several weeks of e-mails, questions and answers to and from many people, I have at last found a solution that works and thought I should post to the group.

Firstly, here's a reminder as to what the problem was....

I have 2 XP Home Ed PC's networked and connected via a cable modem to the www through the one machine acting as the internet gateway. I have XP firewall enabled. I can simultaneously send and receive e-mail from both machines, browse the www from both machines, and use Messenger from both machines. I can use Messenger 'Talk' from one networked machine to the other (invited or accepted), I can use Messenger 'Talk' from the internet gateway machine to any of my contacts who has Messenger and a microphone. What I have been unable to do is to instigate or accept a Messenger 'Talk' conversation from the PC on my home network that is no the internet gateway.

Here's the simple solution for those who may be experiencing the same problem. Make sure that you have the SSDP Discovery Service and Universal Plug and Play Host services in XP enabled. To do so, go to the Start button, then click Control Panel, go to Administrative Tools (you may need to 'Switch to Classic Mode' on the left side pa... Read more

I recently started having issues with my data/fax/voice modem installed in my XPS-600 after an XP SP3 re-install.

The card is recognized in XP and it's listed in Device Manager (Intel(R) 537EP V9x DF PCI Modem) along with its audio driver (Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device) with no apparent problems indicated. If I open the properties for the Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device it says "This device is working properly." From there I go to the Properties Tab > Audio Devices > Modem Wave Driver > Properties and it says "Driver is enabled and functioning properly".

I've Googled for days to resolve this, with no luck. I can fax with the modem, dial calls and it also interprets caller ID correctly in the app I use (Classic PhoneTools), it's just that the audio features don't work anymore (needed for recording and playing back voicemail messages).

I've downloaded a newer driver and still no luck.

It would be fantastic if someone knows the answer to this one. I'm usually pretty good at sorting this kind of stuff out, but this one has me stumped. Every feature of this modem works but the audio...

Hi, ventrilo has been working fine for me for months now but as of a few days ago while i was on vent with a few mates, one of them was telling me they couldn't hear my voice, only the music i was playing through itunes.

I had made no adjustments to anything it just started happening all of a sudden.

Any help appreciated.

A:No voice through mic

If the mic is picking up the sound from your speakers - there's no reason it shouldn't be picking up your voice.

Unless ventrilo can pick up sound without it going through the speakers? I never used the program.

Could be the mic too. Have you tried another one?

Hi ,
Im hoping someone can help us.
My daughter and I talk or try to talk often useing Google talk. The program has nothing to do with the problem becsause it happens on three other such ptograms.
We have a terrible time with the poor quality of the voice. It is scratchy,frying noise and popping noise often and seems to be getting worse.There is dropouts . She can for the most part hear me but seldom can I hear her or understand what is said.
I can hear myself coming back very loudly.All the usual precautions are taken to avoid ECHO and we both use headsets.This has been going on for a longtime but we cannot find a solution and as you can imagine ,are getting sick of it.It has not always been like this so it is something that has happened,configeration , poor ISP speeds crappy phone lines or what?
Daughter has a new computer and mine has been reinstalled by technicians but still the same. Scanned many times and we have no badware.
Please help,

Both Use XP SP2 (Genuine)


With headsets and a cable or satellite broadband connection that shouldn't happen, but if you are DSL then unfortunately a phone line is involved and you are at the mercy of your ISP(verizon, ATT&T or whoever) to resolve your issue.
Getting them to listen and understand the problem, and I speak from experience, will be a challenge. When you call and you hear "Hello, how may I be helping you?", it probably will go downhill from there. Insist you are escalated to a higher level of support if the primary responder doesn't understand you or your problem.
I even was told one time that "Of course the line is fine, you can hear me ,can't you?"

If I could add ..there is no viruses or baddies


You said that this problem happened suddenly. Do you remember what you had been doing between it working well and when the problem started? Any software, hardware or driver updates? Did you add anything new to the system? Had your daughter done any of these things on her system?

Hi All

I have a HP Touchsmart 300-1060a (Home Premium Windows 7 64 BIT) which I bought few years back. Now for the last 6 months or so I started getting issues with my machine was not displaying anything at all after turning it on. So I had to hard reset my power from the machine and then was able to see it started displaying again.

At first I suspected graphic card (NVIDIA GEFORCE) but then I did my diagnostic test and nothing was found.

One day, I started re-imaging my machine as a fresh and then after this it never came back ONLINE. I read all HP forums & even HP Online support was unable to help me to find the cause.

Because when I turn on my machine I can see the power light was on and could hear big fan noise but mo HDD activity at all.

So at this stage, I suspected either motherboard or BIOS but wasn?t 100% sure what could be the real cause because I was sure it was not due to graphic card.

So first I re-setted by my BIOS to see if it helps but it didn?t came up at all. So then I took my machine to a Computer repair shop (a friend of mine) and we detected it could be due to the regulator which supplies power to the CPU and motherboard.

So we replaced that part and now my HP Touchsmart is running fin since then.

But I have lost my HP Startup logo with options such as below:

Enter setup ? Press F10
To restore ? Press F11

Etc etc

Are you able to help me how get my original HP BIOS screen back please? ... Read more

Today i was trying to get rid of the login password to make easier my girlfriend's access to my pc.
I don't know what in hell i clicked but a computer nightmare began.
I think It has to do with me managing the netplwiz settings.
Suddenly i wasn't my computer's admin anymore and i was getting UAC prompts for everything, without being able to run any software. I don't know if i deleted my admin account or i just took away its admin privileges.
Of course i couldn't run elevated CMD prompt or nothing like that.

As you see the "yes button" was greyed out. So i tried to take care of that and rebooted in safe mode and logged in as admin and only the first time it worked, i mean i could login as admin. I opened an elevated CMD prompt and typed:

net user administrator /active:yes
to enable the built in Admin account

net user administrator password
to reset the admin account and make it empty.

Well, when i rebooted i find out that the built-in admin's password wasn't empty as i thought it would be i i have no idea about the password.
No only that, if i try again booting in safe mode the admin option is now password protected and i don't know the password.
I can only login with my microsoft account which doesn't have admin privileges.
The only difference is that now windows gives me the chance to enter the password everytime i want to do something, a password i don't know.

Hi Meenie50 - I also ran into this issue and contacted Microsoft.  I was told that the Tutorial that is being displayed also applies to Windows 10.  Apparently, the message on the bottom is just the site acknowledging that you have Winows 10 and you are viewing Windows 8 information.  Here is the link that shows the information for 10.http://windows.microsoft.com/en-ie/windows-10/getstarted-use-speech-recognition Hope this helps!

When i go to speech in my control panel and want to change the default voice from "microsoft sam"...it seems to give me no other option from the drop down menu. Why is that? And how can i get a choice of voices for text to speech?

Thanks to anyone who helps me out.

A:Voice Selection on XP

Office XP comes with a couple more voices, you can also try these from here http://www.vioio.com/voices.htm or these links from microsoft for 3rd party downloads, http://www.microsoft.com/speech/evaluation/thirdparty/engines.asp

I haven't used them, so I don't know how good they are. You should find heaps searching on google for 'Text to Speech"

Hi. I am new to this forum and although a long-term computer user I am somewhat illiterate when it comes to problems. I usually get a friend to help. My problem seems rather unusual, I get a child's voice saying things like "I am the boy you killed six years ago", "I am with you when you go to web sites, "I am there when you check the weather", etc. It can happen at any time despite what I have open. It happend yesterday when all I had open was Sky Google Mail and I had just sent an email. I rarely download anything, I mainly use my computer for email, google and ebay, not much else. I have run various spy, virus and other checkers, my friend has run a registry cleaner and done many other things, but still the disturbing voice returns. The voice reminds me of the television government road accident advert where the dead young boy is seen lying in the road and around the house. Does anybody know what thsi is and how I can remove it. Many thanks.

Hi and welcome to TSG,

Click here to download HJTsetup.exe.

Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
