Sound DOESN'T work while playing .mp3/.avi - DOES work with games/YT

Q: Sound DOESN'T work while playing .mp3/.avi - DOES work with games/YT

Help! See the title.

I'm going mad because I can't listen to music! I've tried three different mediaplayers (Windows Media Player, VLC & QuickTime) and all three just don't work! WMP won't even play the files, VLC will (in .avi-case even with picture!) but there won't be sound :/. Same for QuickTime,...

Now, the weird thing is that I can play games without a problem and the sound's still there! Hell, even sounds made by Windows -- I hear 'em! YouTube works too!

I'm concerned there might be something wrong in the registry,... (I use Eusing Free Registry Cleaner/Defrag regularly, I guess something was bound to go wrong,...)

Please, help? :(

(Windows 7, btw.)

Preferred Solution: Sound DOESN'T work while playing .mp3/.avi - DOES work with games/YT

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.)

Apparently I made a mistake,... Sound in games doesn't work* System sounds and YouTube do, though.

Hercules Gamesurround Muse XL soundcard, windows 98 1st edition, PIII 800mhz, 512mb ram.

-The sound doesn't work properly, for example, played some games like hitman and mafia, and you cannot hear the gunshots or voices properly. Tried updating the drivers, and even got a new version of Gamesurround soundcard. But still didn't work.

Could it be direct X? Installed latest direct x too, still problems

A:soundcard doesn't work properly, while playing video games on pc

I have a Muse XL and had problems with Hercules driver for the card, I switched to the generic chipset drivers for the 8738 chip on the muse XL and found that the work better than the makers. You can find them here.


Also, check out the mixer in the generic drivers, you'll find a microphone booster and a few things that didn't come with the Muse's drivers from hercules for some reason...

The games I try to connect to are Battlefield 4, leauge of Legends, NBA 2k15, and Minecraft. All these game will be disconnected from internet. I'm using a wirless network and the adapor is a NETGEAR A6210 and yes, the drivers are up to date. Anyone have a fix. I would really be happy if anyone could figure it out. Thx !

A:HELP! Internet can browse but when playing online games it doesn't work!

Did you check the network settings in the game? Also check you firewall, it could be blocking the games access to the internet.

Ok I have a problem, and its really bugging me. One day a friend came over and we tried to install a Geforce 2 GTS into my computer (PII 450 Mhz,96 MB Ram, etc. etc.) Anyway, we installed the card into the AGP slot, but for some reason the monitor wouldnt work when we turned on the computer (kept saying Video Cable Connected?)(I figured out why it was doing that though) Anyway since it wasn't working, we took the card back out, put the computer back together, all good. My friend leaves, and I turn on the computer. At first everything seems ok, but then I notice my sound doesnt work, nor does my graphics card work (my original one) I fixed the graphic problem by just installing the new drivers, but the sound I cant. I thought maybe it had to do with drivers since we deleted my old graphics drivers when we installed the new graphics card, so I downloaded the newest sound card drivers, and its still not working. I went back and opened up my computer. Theres this one wire that we could not remember wether it was connected or not. Ive tried having my computer on with the wire connected and not connected, and it doesnt seem to make any difference. So I would really like to figure out whats the matter with my comp, and hope to god its fixable, cause I really dont want to get a new comp.

Thanks before hand.

A:My Sound doesn't work, and I cant get it to work either.

I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate, and I use the latest version of Firefox AND Java, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Java, it still doesn't work.. I've tried Google-ing a bit, and I read somewhere that my firewall might be blocking Java?

I use Windows Firewall, and I have manually added those to Windows Firewall, but Java still doesn't work;

This is what happens when I try to load Java games and stuff like that, and I've also tried to view the Java Console in my Firefox, but it wont work. I click Tools > Java Console > nothing happens.

I hope I've provided enough information for you guys to help me, if I didn't, let me know and I will. Thanks!

EDIT: Oh and my OS is 64-bit.

A:Java doesn't work, can't play games like RuneScape.

Check your firewall settings, security programs and Firefox addons to see if any of them are blocking scripts.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Internet Options > Security tab and set the slider to medium-high. Click the Privacy tab, click the Popup Blocker Settings button and set the Blocking Level to medium.

Do you get a popup window like the one in the screenshot below?

Click the Run button and the game should start.

I recently noticed that my ctrl+a doesn't work. All the other ctrl combinations do! Ctrl+a doesnt allow me to "select all" while word processing or use this combination in games (first person shooters).

I have a logitech G15 and other keyboards and they all dont allow me to use ctrl+a. I have tried different versions of keyboard drivers for my G15 and without. I plugged the keyboard into another W7 and it works

Im assuming this is an issue with my OS now.

I know reinstalling windows is a option but want that to be the last resort as i only reformatted last month(i think it only started occurring when i reformatted)

EDIT: I have fixed my issue - it turns out my user account was corrupted, so I had to make a new one and copy all my documents folder over!

So, my friend was playing Traffic Racer in school with his tablet, and after 2 playings of it I really liked it. And I remembered for BlueStacks (didn't used it before because it was lagging, I didn't knew why and leaved it. Got the idea to check from Nvidia Control Panel and select the Nvidia GPU, not the slow Intel HD 4000 :P), tried to install firstly Subway Surfers and tried to control it via arrow keys. I didn't worked, but holding LMB and sliding to a place it worked, plus it had stutter which made me angry. Then I tried Traffic Racer and there the key bindings still didn't work (I tried to configure key bindings through the menu and an a app for key bindings for BlueStacks, but still didn't worked), the Anti-Aliasing was really bad and had stuttering.
How can I make the key bindings work and fix the stutter? The key bindings were enabled but still doesnt worked. After that I tried Asphalt 8 too and the controls worked (but a crazy glitch happens that the game bugs and only the car goes back and right without even pushing a button), but had so heavy stuttering, graphics errors and really bad Anti-Aliasing. Someone knows how to fix this? I really wanna play these games. By the way the games run at 60FPS, but still lots of stuttering.

Hi. I have a wireless belkin router which my xbox uses to obtain a wireless signal. I have altered the DMZ settings and enabled UPnP so I have open Nat. Unfortunately in CoD5 and 4 I am getting a connection interrupted sign 2-3 times a game. Each of these lasts for about 3-5 seconds. But on games without a dedicated server instead of connection interrupted I get booted from the match. As you can imagine this is very frustrating and completely ruins some games for me.

If it matters I believe the internet is run to my wireless router and then to my modem and into my main computer. two other computers and my xbox are connected wirelessly to my router.

It is also not a problem of IP's changing because I have the settings on my router to were it "leases" a IP to a certain Mac adress indefinetly.

Also I tried port forwarding and my games still got connection interupted.

I believe I have done all I can with the router so It might be my firewall. I use Kapernsky security instead of windows firewall.

Please help!

A:Sound doesn't work

umm is your audio motherboard based, or a soundcard. video has nothing to do with sound in the drivers. what i mean by motherboard based is this : does it come off of a little connector attached to the mottherboard, or a custom installed soundcard in a PCI slot?? if its motherboard, go into your BIOS setup, and find "ONBOARD AUDIO", make sure it is enabled. If it a soound card, make sure it is disabled. The next thing to do if motherboard based is to search for the motherboards drivers (i find easiest way is tto check out the computers maker, and check their website). Also, if in you control panel ->Sounds and devivces, it sows no audio device, then find your motherboard specs and give them to us. Lavalyst's Everest is a good program for this.

My sound has been working really good until I recently had a program called driver cleaner, and it cleans uneeded files in the drivers... lol... and then after a scan and clean with it my sound didn't work. I have a sound driver called SB Audigy 2 ZS So then I uninstalled the driver, then I installed the new one, (http://us.creative.com/support/down...&driverlang=1033&OS=10&drivertype=0&x=32&y=21 its the first one in drivers). I thought that would fix it, it installed properly and all, and it restarted and all that important stuff, and now it still doesn't work. Do I need to restart it again or what? If someone knows why this is happening please tell me.

Edit: I also see the sound Icon in the bottom right of the screen, nothing is muted, and soundcard is installed and enabled.

If you need any more info just tell me, I really need an answer right about now.

Edit #2: Whenever I turn the volume up on my speaker, I hear a sound like when you are chatting online, it sounds like someone is touching their microphone. This sound only happens when I am turning the speaker volume knob, and when it is not moving it does not make a sound at all. I know it works because I plugged it into my iPod.

Did you uninstall the USB headphones? They might have taken out some important drivers or parts of them. In any case, try reinstalling your sound card drivers, if you haven't already.

Yesterday (Wednesday) I received my new stick of ram I ordered and I plugged it in (raplacing the orginal stick of 512mb, I now have 2x2GB while only using 3.12GB ram). I started my PC up and had no problems. A few hours later I had to restart my pc, when it came back on my onboard sound didnt work. So I went to my mobo manufactures site and downloaded the correct driver, uninstalled the realtek sound thing, and installed the new one I downloaded. Restarted and still didnt work.

Later that day the electrics went, once we got it back on and started up pc again, my sound was working. Then today again it stopped working. Then I went back to my mobo site, downloaded 'Fox live update' and installed, backed up my bios and upgraded to the latest and restarted. Before installing it, I got a warning that restarting may not work (thinking that was to just cover their back), I tried to restart and my desktop stayed up (explorer.exe closed and I couldnt do anything), so I forced a restart. When it was all loaded up again, I got the device was found box and it was searching for a driver. Turned out it was a floppy disc drive (A) but I have no floppy drive and never have for this PC. So I reinstalled the backed up bios and restarted.

Good afternoon everybody,I have a problem with my Thinkpad T430s. Yesterday I turned the sound off, so the led went on. But now the led light doesn't go off anymore, and without headphones plugged in I can't have sound.

Also, when I plug in the headphones, my friends say my sound is lost and I have to replug it, to be able to say something. And when I press the volume up or down, it will still go on/off, but still no sound. I hope this makes sense.

I've been having an issue with my sound ever since I got my new mother board and processor. Everything runs fine, great. Except my sound, I have a 7NJL6 CHAINTECH motherboard with an AMD processor.

What the deal is, is I had bought a sound card for my old mother board so I instinctivly (sp?) put that in as well. So, when i loaded the PC, I went into Ventrilo, [A voice-over chat program] and i could hear everyone, but I couldn't talk. So I went to Sound and Audio Devices, tested my hardware, and my mic started to work. Cool! But, then my sound stopped working and I haven't been able to get it back.

I have a Sound Blaster LIVE! 5.1 sound card.

Oh and to top it all off, I was doing so many things at the same time I misplaced the Motherboard Driver CD before I could even open it, so that really sucks.

I hope can help me, I've been trying to fix this for four days now!

Hi.....thank you in advance for your help. I reinstaled windows xp pro 2002.....my sound doesn't work. It appears that my "old" computer has an on board sound card on the mother board. I looked in sounds in the control panel and it says my sound card is working properly, still no sound. speakers are plugged in correctly. The volume in control panel is up, not muted. How can i fix this??

A:sound doesn't work

After you reinstalled windows, did you install your motherboard's drivers?

If you don't have a system disk that came with your computer, you can go to the makers site and download the drivers from there.

Without the drivers, your system will not work properly.

Good luck!

Download and run Everest Home (it is free):


Once you download it, click on it and let it install and then run it from the icon on your desktop and then click on 'Computer' then on 'Summary', then go to the VERY top of the screen and click on 'report', then 'quick report-summary' and then 'plain text' and save it then go to C:/programs/lavalys and open that folder then open Everest Home sub-folder and then reports sub-folder and click on the report.

This will open it in a text editor (probably Notepad) and then use your mouse to highlight ALL the debug stuff at the bottom of the report and delete it and then save that file again and then copy and paste it to here.

I really need help with this doozy.I have a AC 97 Sound card built into the mother board.I have Windows XP Home Edition.IE 7.0Windows Media Player 11.My volume is fine. Nothing is muted. The speakers are plugged in. The driver has been updated and even deleted and reinstalled. Plus I have tried system restore but nothing worked then went back a month before it happened still no result. So I went back to before I restored.Any ideas?N/mind the sound is back. Don't know what did it.However my speakers are Dell PC Speakers and now only one of them plays the volume strong and the other is very very faint. They are linked together before going into the PC. The one that plays strong is the one that doesn't have the volume control on it. It in turn plus into the one with the volume control and then into the |PC. If un-plug the one with no volume control the sound comes a little bit strong into the sound controlled speaker. Any ideas? (Also it isn't he speaker being set to the left or right too much. It is down the center but only the left has sound. If I turn down the right it doesn't matter.

My computer is not recognizing my sound drivers. At least that's what I think it is. I have an HP8562. I had sound issues with the computer from day one and HP was no help in resolving. Then one day, the computer went crazy.....my graphics got weird, I lost the use of my mouse and lost anything to do with any kind of sound. I got everything fixed except for the sound. Tried installing a new sound card but the computer refuses to recognize the software. Any suggestions short of throwing this thing out the window would be greatly appreciated!!!

Wish I had a better description but ....
My sound worked and now it doesn't.

I have a Asustek p6x58d premium board and I'm using the on-board sound. In sound I have "rear panel" as default. In rear panel properties I have it enabled. When I play any sound playback (in sound) shows the rear panel as getting a signal but no matter what jack I plug into I get no sound. My speakers do work.

In NIVDIA control panel it had audio going to the HDMI capable device (my monitor) and I have since turned it off. I rebooted but still no sound.

Device manager: Under sound it shows 2 NVIDIA devices and one high definition audio device. All are working correctly.

EDIT: the volume mixed shows sound happening in the device (rear panel) and shows the application (ffox) getting signal as well.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 and have been dealing with this problem for a pretty long time. Occassionally, I will be playing a youtube video or something and I'll pause it and come back to it and the sound wont work. It wont work through the speakers or headphones.. I usually restart my computer and it always works fine, but I need to know another way to fix the sound without restarting it.. Im not sure if it has something to do with FL Studio but yeah idk i need heeeeellllppp. Thx!

Hello Steve probably a dumb question but you have checked all the usual stuff like drivers??

One thing for starters try a scannow SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hey! I'm not much of a computer gal, so if I sound totally clueless, forgive me.
I have a bunch of major issues with my computer, but right now my audio isn't working at all. And yes, everything is plugged in correctly.
When I turn on my computer, the usual audio icon isn't on the taskbar. None of my programs have sound. For example, when someone IMs my on AOL, all i hear is this annoying little click, which comes from the machine itself, not the speakers.
Please help me! I'm going crazy! I miss my music!
thanks so much.

My Acer 3680 laptop wont play sound out of its speakers it did work the first few weeks I had it then I did some windows updates and restart and bang it didn't work anymore,

Sometimes it still works, like this little program that comes installed with the computer that likes to call itself the "Sound Manager" has a little demo sounds .. they play fine real cool ... and the pc beep that plays fine as well but when I plug a set of headphones in to jack the pcbeep gladly stops, especially since the pcbeep was playing at fullblast.

So anyways I also try to open volume control and receive the
"no active mixer device error message"

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling my sound card driver. I have installing over top of. But the error remains and I still do not have any sound.

I would really like some help getting my sound back if anyone can get me some help on this it would be most appreciatted.

I guys I have a X1 Extreme / i8850H / 64mb / 1TB / 4k Display / 1050ti This laptop runs cool for 30 Minutes, than randomly fans start going crazy and it hits 85-100 Degrees What is causing this, How can I keep it from getting so Hot and running on fans all the time? I usually use my laptop on my actual bed mattress, this doesn't work so well, so I have been using a solid object to put underneath it so it can blow out air out of the bottom, I am guessing on a Bed or on my lap the Fans are covered, preventing it from cooling the device? I have also heard there is a Hybrid and Discreet Graphics on the Bios setting, will turning it to one or the other help with the cooling and also help with Battery Life? I don't need to use the 1050ti all the time, I am guessing when I use Photoshop or Play games I would just switch it back and forth. Also is there a Windows App that can also switch between the Discreet and Hybrid Settings? Is there also a App in windows that can manage the fans better or control the thermal throttling, Lenovo Vantage didn't do much, as I have it on cooling mode and it still runs hot for 30 mins, than runs cold for 30 mins and random stuff. I am mostly browsing the web, but I am transferring Data to a backup HD sometimes, but the SSD shouldnt be getting hot in the laptop, the CPU is. Sorry for the long post Just want to know what you guys recommend as a solution?

Removed itunes from computer (didn't solve the issue with cd-rom player)

Went back to a system restore point that was before the last time I used the CD-rom player and it worked and that (didn't work as well)

Read a lot of different posts about code 39 and nothing is given after the above steps are taken if it still won't work except to reformat which I would prefer not to do.

I got back from christmas break, (hadn't used my computer for about 2 weeks) and my computer was running incredibly slowly on the internet ( i have cox high speed) and when I tried to uninstall and reinstall a few games, they wouldn't uninstall, and i couldn't use them.
