Unusual problem: No sound bar for headset and unable to configure them

Q: Unusual problem: No sound bar for headset and unable to configure them

Hi, I recently purchased a pair of Corsair Vengeance 2000 wireless USB headphones. However, when I installed them and tried to use them, I came across a rather unusual problem. I couldn't test them, or set them as default device, or configure them. It's like Windows doesn't recognise them. All the drivers are installed correctly .

I have also tried them on another computer, with the same version of Windows and they worked fine, so I know that there is no problem with the headphones.

I am running RealTek HD audio just incase it is needed.
Thanks

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.)

A: Unusual problem: No sound bar for headset and unable to configure them

Sounds like they could have a corrupt status in Windows. Connect the headphones then go to the Device Manager, either the headphones will be listed in the sounds and audio devices or there will be an unknown device listed in the USB section. In either case, RIGHT click on the entry and then LEFT click"Uninstall". Then disconnect the headset and restart the PC. After Windows starts, connect them and Windows should detect and install them, like a new installation. This may take care of the problem.

Hi there,

I have been unable to connect my Netgear RangeMAX Next Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router (DG834N) to the internet, I have spent about three hours on the phone to Netgear and my ISP and both of them have not heard of the problem before and can't help me, hopefully you guys can, as I'm tearing my hair out after trying to set it up for 3 days

First my settings;

I have ADSL from Virgin.net in the UK
I have set the router up, as the ISP advised;

PPPoA
VCI=0
VPI=38
MTU=1450
Multiplexing Method=VC Based
I have it set to find an IP and DNS address automatically, and I have also done this in the Internet settings.
I have do not dial any connection in my Internet settings also.

When I switch the router on the Internet, Wireless and Lan lights go solid green, but when I try to use the internet nothing.

I should mention at this point, that I can connect to the Internet, with the USB Speedtouch Modem that my ISP provided me, so I know I have the password and login name correct. This also rules out any fault on the ADSL line (I think!!!)

When I check the router I get the following messages;

On my all-in-one Dell inspiron I've noticed the sound is significantly higher when I have a device plugged in, whether it be my bamboo tablet or my phone, unplugging them during playing audio, I'd suddenly hear the sound drop a good 5-8 decibels(aka about 20-40 on the volume bar) and it doesn't seem to be a glitch because it's been constant over a month now, am I doing something wrong? Are there any settings I can fix to stop this?I dont want to have keep my phone plugged in every time i watch a youtube video.

I am using the Tritton Ax720 headset and everything has been fine and dandy on my windows 7 PC. It is connected by USB to my computer. Today the sound just stopped functioning right and I didn't change anything, it went from normal to extremely low and fuzzy. I do not think there is anything wrong with the headset itself because I plug it in to my PS3 with Optical cable and it works fine.

I'm having a problem with the sound from headsets.

I currently have 2 Logitech USB headsets, both of which are different models.

For some reason, neither one of them will play sounds correctly. Some sounds will play crystal clear, while others are extremely quiet and almost impossible to hear. One example of this is in songs played on youtube or iTunes, I can hear some background music and background singing clearly, yet main vocals and some instruments I'm unable to hear at all. Another problem I'm having is not being able to hear voices in Ventrilo, but I can hear the Ventrilo sounds when I enter a server.

This problem started randomly yesterday, and was not triggered by any sort of update or download that I know of. My computer's speakers work fine if I unplug the headset. Since, I have gone through window updates, tried plugging them into different ports, and I've tried going to the Logitech website, but apparently the driver is a default windows driver.

I'm completely lost as to what I can try next to fix this problem.

I have a problem with my headphones w/ mic that's been driving my crazy forever. For some reason, every time I buy a new headset, it works for a month or two and then all of a sudden starts dieing. My first ones, Plantronics over-the-head headphones w/ mic started to lose sound in one ear. I would hear sound cutting in and out and it made an annoying staticy sound. For some reason, changing the position of my head or moving the inline volume control would always change it, but one position would never last.

Eventually I had to trash them and buy another, this time a behind the ear headset, again from Plantronics. It worked for a month or two, but then the mic started to die. Other people would hear me really crackly, like there was some kind of noise in the background.

Finally, I moved on to my present headset. This one is from Logitech, but now it's starting to show the same problems as the original Plantronics one. A few days ago I started intermittently losing sound to my left ear. For some reason, it came back whenever I lifted the inline volume control above the the headphones. If it was an inch under them (in distance from the ground) I would get no sound, and an inch over would give me sound again. Needless to say, it was annoying trying to hold up a wire to have sound in both ears, but now even that doesn't work.

I'm wondering if anyone knows what I could do to fix this headset problem besides buying a new one every month, it's driving my c... Read more

Alright well I have the 5.1 ax360 surround sound headset from triton but im having a problem. I don't know if the problem lies with the headset or my sound card settings. My sound card is the Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty. Anyway, when im playing call of duty world at war (on my pc) the sound doesn't come from where it should on the headset. For example, if guns are shooting in game on the left side, in the headset it sounds like its coming from the right side. Is this a headset problem, sound card problem or do I just not have something set right? In the software the card came with I set it to run in 5.1 surround sound and same with the game.

Good night, this problem is very annoying:
I bought Logitech Headset F540, when I connect the base to my computer with USB, first I can hear a noise in the sound, then after X minutes the sound stop working.

I sent an email to logitech support and they said to me that there is no problem in their drivers (Because they don have), I tested the Headset on Linux and there was no noise and I was able to hear my music a long time. There is no problem on the headset hardware.

So, I searched a lot, I found some posts here on sevenforums, but I do not find any solution to the problem, I saw too that this problem is not only on Logitech but Sennheiser and ClearChat.

I found a post on Microsoft site to trace USB events (USB Event Tracing For Windows). I launched this commands:
C:\>Logman start Usbtrace -p Microsoft-Windows-USB-USBPORT PowerDiagnostics -o usbtrace.etl -ets -nb 128 640 -bs 128
El comando se complet? correctamente.

C:\>logman update usbtrace -p Microsoft-Windows-USB-USBHUB -ets
El comando se complet? correctamente.

C:\>Logman stop Usbtrace -ets
El comando se complet? correctamente.

And the output is a capture file containing information about USB events, I made this while plugin the base via USB and when the error is present I stoped the utiliy.

With Microsoft Network Monitor I am able to see what happen, but I can not find the solution for the issue:

Hi Guys, I am having trouble with some Bose QC35 headphones. They have been working fine until a short time ago, nothing has changed as far as I can tell
 
Now I only have sound when the headset is connected as a headset, but not when it is connected headphones. This is a problem becuase the microphone turns on so I get feedback from surround sounds and the ANC on my headset turns off. When I go into the control panel and try testing the sound, the green bars move up and down for both headphone and headset, but I only actually hear sound from the headset. 
 
I have tried updating firmwares, turning computer and headphones on and off, repairing the headphones, checked all the volume selection spots I know about and as far as I can tell, there should be sound coming from the headphones
 
Computer is a lenovo P50 running windows 7
 
Anyone got any suggestions?

Hey,

the topic pretty much says it. I bought myself a new headset(C-media headphone set or something) which uses a USB-port instead of an original sound-port-thing. The problem is, whenever I plug the headset in the USB-port pretty much nothing happens and I can't get the sound in the headset, it just stays in the speakers...

It used to be no problem when I used a headset with the sound-port on the motherboard to just change it. Anyone have any suggestions on what I might do? :(

edit: forgot to say that it works just fine after rebooting the computer.

Thank you

Ok, so recently ive switched from using a HP Envy laptop, to my new MSI GE62 gaming laptop. Now the headset i was using on my old computer the Turtle Beach PX22 work perfectly on the old laptop, with no issues at all..

Now ive switched to my new computer, an issue has arisen. The microphone, every so often crackles while im talking to others, or even when im testing it through my speakers. This issue seems very off and on though, e.g. After playing some Arma 3, i received a crash to the Orange screen (windows 10), after collecting the data, the computer restarted as it usually would. HOWEVER this time the microphone had no crackling at all. Even after i didnt move the USB microphone port at all, or do anything to change the microphone.

All sound from the PC fades out over the course of ~2 seconds only to instantly return when a new (loudish) sound is made. It almost feels as if the headset is raising its baseline of noise after a bit and things the normal sounds are just nothing until a loud sound comes in and makes it realize there is still noise to be played. Best way to describe it is having poor thresholds set to a VoIP voice detection, you make a loud noise and it will kick on and detect lower noise for a bit before shutting down again.

Headset is a Skullcandy PLYR2 Wireless Headset USB plugged directly into MoBo

I have not had this issue happen when using my monitor's speakers (HDMI into GPU)

There is no sound card on this PC, and I've not been able to find any sort of software to control the audio processor outside of the windows playback enhancements.

Windows Communications volume attenuation is set to do nothing, VoIP programs are off as well so as to rule out those. No enhancements are on in windows playback enhancements.

For the last couple of days, when I boot up in the morning, there is a sound like something running rapidly in my computer. In my untrained mind I imagine a fan running. It is reminiscent of the fan sound I used to hear in my VW Rabbit when the engine got warm and the radiator fan automatically kicked in. And like the fan on my VW Rabbit, it runs for about 30 seconds and then fades. The computer runs fine with no problems. Does this sound like a fan going bad or some control that triggers the computer fan to run? Or am I totally wrong and this is some other component of my machine acting up?

Looking at the Speccy, I don't see anything other than RealTek HD Audio. If the laptop has a RealTek HD Audio Manager, have you tried setting the speaker type there?

Aside from the audio issue, I notice you only have 2GB of RAM. The 64 bit OS does you no good with only 2GB of RAM, and can be an issue with only the 2GB which is bare minimum for a 64 bit OS. The main reason for using a 64 bit OS is to use more than 4GB of RAM, since a 32 bit OS cannot address 4 GB (or more) of RAM.

Hi there.

I have an unusual request, and this seemed the best forum to post it to.

I am a musicologist/musician and frequently visit a fantastic (Korean) website dedicated to the music of J.S. Bach, http://www.greatjsbach.net/ , where it is possible to consult the composer's scores and hear recordings of everything he composed (the majority of files are presumably mp3, but there are also some MIDI files).

Last week, however, I bought a new laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium (I'd previously been using Vista Home Premium), and since changing computers I can no longer listen to recordings via this website; the music is obviously playing, but I hear nothing. When I first accessed the site with the new computer, I was told that I needed to download Active X, and so I clicked on the link and allowed the download. But even after having downloaded the Active X, I was unable to hear anything.

Would someone mind checking out the site and reporting back if they are able to hear the recordings? When the homepage opens, you have to click on W (works), from there you can choose from various categories. Pick a specific composition, and there you will find links for listening to a recording of it.

I'd be interested to see if other people have problems listening to the music, and if they are able to solve the problem.

Florio

P.S. I would have posted on the website's own forum, but it's all in Korean!

Hello all.

My Dell Inspiron 3520 was going quite slow for unknown reasons so I decided to 'refresh' it using Windows advanced start-up setting. Since that time I have been unable to install Windows updates. Well, I can 'install' them, but they won't 'configure'. Once installed and 'configured' 100% I get this error message advising following reboot : "Failure to configure updates. Reverting changes". The laptop then stays paralysed on that screen.

This only started to happen AFTER I "refreshed" my laptop, which was running Windows 8.1 pretty-much problem-free, though a bit slowly, until a week ago.

I have done all the standard troubleshooting, including running MS Fix It, Dell Dr ('My Dell' found no hardware issues), MS Malware removal and Mcafee anti-malware. All reported "no issues".

Hi

When I am in Internet Options, Advanced Tab, when I click on an item, it will highlight, but can't click to enable or disable. I am using Mozilla as my primary browser, but don't know if this has any relevance! One
of the main reasons is that I keep on getting an error message from Java (please see log below):-

Additionally, I also receive errors such as FDGO.exe, NTDLL.dll etc etc. I have no idea what I am doing wrong, so would much appreciate all and any help possible!

Uninstall your Java and any Java plug-ins, then reboot your computer. After that, go and try the same things again in your browser options. If everything works out fine, just reinstall your Java and any plugins you may want.

I constantlly get error_not_found 0x80070490 when trying to install updates.

The Microsoft website says its a CBS issue and that the resoloution is to run a repair installation of Vista. Thing is the software was pre-installed so i have no disc and i'm unsure how to run a restore without an OS disc and also without wiping everything accidentally.

HP say speak to Microsoft, Microsoft say speak to HP.

Any ideas how i fix this one before the PC flies out the window ?????

Hi -

See if this tutorial helps --> http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/88...all-vista.html

If no Vista recovery DVD, use the recovery partition - most systems = hit the F10 key during boot-up.

Hello everyone,

I'm about at my wit's end trying to figure out my problem and finally decided I should ask the pros for help, since an exhaustive search of the interwebs has turned up nothing. I'm a hobby PC user so please be patient with me. So here is my problem.

I recently bought all the stuff to build an HTPC/gaming rig for my girlfriend and I and I wanted to set up RAID 1 but no matter what I try, I can't get it to work. Here is my rig.

ASRock H77 Pro4-M mobo
Intel i7-2600
(2) 2TB Seagate Barracuda 7200 rpm; 6.0GB/s HDD
(4) 2GB G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR 1600 RAM
EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti Video Card
Cooler Master 600W Silent Power supply

I think that's about it.

Here is what I've done.

I went into bios and set my storage configuration to RAID. After, I saved and exited, and allowed the machine to reboot. When it did, I pushed Ctrl + I to enter the RAID volume setup menu. I labeled the volume, chose RAID 1, selected my drives, selected my size, and saved and exited. Then I booted from my Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit (Dell OEM, if that matters). I selected my regional settings, and when prompted, accepted the terms and selected "Custom" install. At the drive select screen, I saw one disk, which I believe is what I should see. I highlighted the drive and selected "Load Drivers." I used the driver labeled with the arrow in the attatched image. I got it from my mobo's website found here ASRock > Products > H77 Pro4-M. After the driver loaded, I re... Read more

A:Unable to configure RAID on Windows 7 Home Premium

Why do you want RAID? WIn7 doesn't much like RAID which isn't even Redundant so risks losing both HD's if one fails. Better to install to one HD and use the other for backing up an image.

If you saw one correctly-sized RAID array when you booted into the installer to try hardware RAID then the driver wasn't needed as it's only loaded when no drive shows up. Try again.

After restoring my new laptop back to factory settings (to fix problem I was having with MSE), I find that I am now unable to configure my restore points. I am trying to increase the storage space so I can have several restore points. When I click 'Apply' or 'Okay' after changing the space allocation, the following error appears:

"The filename, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect. Error 0x800707B"

The following drives appear in the Restore Config window with Restore set to 'On':

System_DRV
Windows7_OS(C:)(System)
Windows7_OS(C:)(Missing) -- this seems odd to me

For background info, I restored to factory settings and added MSE and then other programs one-by-one. After programs were re-installed, I restored my data from the previous night's backup. Everything is working fine and there are no system errors that I can see.

Would anyone have any insights on this problem?

I have an application running 24/7 which occasionally loses the ability to pause or configure it by right-clicking on the systray icon.
Is there an alternative method of doing this, or is a reboot the only answer?

I am not sure what your question is.Do you interact with this or is it a remotely controlled client allowing the use of your computer's unused processing power by the research group?If the program stalled, you may be able to look in the task manager (ctrl/alt/del), highlight the running ap by right clicking on it, choose "go to process" , then right click on the process which will be highlighted and choose "set priority". Try elevating the priority.I suggest you write down what you did so you can reverse it if necessary.There is also a Bulletin Board for this.

Good day,

I have an unusual situation with my HDMI and would like some advice or ideas.

I have 2 TVs with HDMI input, both LG (I believe 32LH20R and 22LH20R).

When I connect my hdmi to 22lh20r, the sound device says "not connected".
When I connect to 32lh20r, everything works fine.
If I connect to 22lh20r after connecting to 32lh20r, the sound device is now detected!
But when I reset my computer, the sound from 22lh20r says "not connected" again.

I tested two notebooks on it so far, and could reproduce on both. One with a GeForce 9600M GT and the other with a GeForce GT 540M.

I think that this could be some issue with the TV, but since it work after connecting to the other TV, I was thinking if there is a way to force the detection, or to force the driver from one TV to the other, or something like that.

Thanks in advance.
Gui

A:Issue with HDMI sound detection - unusual situation

Additional information:

I tryed to override EDID, with phoenix edid editor and monitor asset manager, but had no success with that. Turns out that they only collect the first 128 bytes from the edid, leaving the CEA extensions out, and this would be where the EDID stores whether the monitor has audio or not. =/

Also, it seems like it's not possible to "force" the playback device to "be detected", or at least I didn't find a way so far.

If anyone could help with EDID overriding, or this way to trick windows into believing HDMI sound is connected, I would appreciate a lot!

Thanks,
Gui

I bought a brand-new fatality gaming headset earlier. When Skype is closed, all of the PC sound comes out through the headset (gaming, videos, music ect...), however when I launch Skype.... Only the Skype call comes out through the headset - the rest of it comes through the laptop speakers as usual. I want it so both Skype & all of the other sounds (gaming,videos,music ect...) come out of the headset even while skype is active.

Extra Info***

I'm on a Pavilion DV6 and all my audio is managed through an ITD control panel.
All help will be much appreciated.

Thx

Hey all,

My issue is as follows:

I am unable to change my Creative Fatal1ty USB Gaming Headset HS-1000 from stereo to 5.1/7.1 though the configure option in Sound>Playback Devices. I want to do this so I can use X-Fi CMSS-3D with the headset (which I was using before I did a fresh install of my system), instead of having the headset on stereo and using a very basic form of X-Fi CMSS-3D

I am using the headset in a 3.0 USB port and not with a soundcard/onboard sound.

I have disabled onboard sound.

I have updated my Driver and Creative Audio Console to Creative Gaming Headsets Driver 1.01.0004

I have updated my Creative Console Launcher to Creative Console Launcher for Gaming Headsets 2.50.93

This issue has only happened after I have done a fresh install, and I did another to try and rectify this issue to no avail.

Please advice

A:Unable to change USB Headset from setreo to 5.1/7.1

One of my PC's is using an ASRock Z77 Professional Fatal1ty motherboard. There is a special port on the motherboard just for the Creative Fatal1ty headset. From what I see in the documentation the Creative Fatal1ty headset will only properly work in that special port.
