Windows XP strange zoom/pop sound upon booting

Q: Windows XP strange zoom/pop sound upon booting

This is probably something everyone but me knows, but when I booted my computer the other day, after the "windows" introductory sound, I heard a strange woosh , or zoom , then bubble pop sound before the desktop appeared. This has continued ever since each time the computer is booted. Is this a Windows thing? I want to know because it happened before, and shortly after it happened my computer crashed. Coincidence maybe, but like I say, I am clueless on this. Thanks!

i have no clue if it even belongs here or hardware or software, but when i turned on my computer one day it stopped at a screen that was just black with compaq in red on the screen(my computer is indeed a compaq), it comes up with this everytime it boots anyway just gets past in it 1 or 2 seconds. i dont remember what i was doing beforehand because it was a long time ago and i have found a way to get around it-i think the problem was something to do with when iw as trying to download and install either new ipod or itunes software updates and cancelled because they were going so slow. anyway after a while-anywhere from 15-30 min. i left it, as far as i remember it will go ahead and get to the user log-in menu, but my mouse and keyboard dont respond. i ended up unplugging one extra thing at a time to see why it wouldnt work. the problem? my ipod charge/update cable cant be connected to the computer's usb and ipod when i start the computer. if i unplug it, start the computer, and plug it in when i get into windows it runs just normally. does anyone have any possible idea what the problem could be?

-windows xp sp2
-i dont know what ipod software etc i have that might be conflicting but it is whatever i had when i got it last december
-logitech cordless desktop mx3000 laser

Hello, it looks like this is a laptop, have you tried to hook up an external monitor to it?

This is most likely a hardware problem; either video card or display. Is this she only thing you see on screen when you turn the laptop on, or do you first see normal text/logo's?

Hello all,
I was hoping someone could give me a little insight and direction on what might be the problem here. Here's the deal:
When I boot up windows my hard drive will "clunk" (basically it sounds likes it powering off and then back on really quick). It does this intermittently, but every single time it happens it happens at the same spot in the bootup sequence (I am gauging by the approximate time it takes from the moment the Windows XP loading screen appears to when I get the "clunk"). When this happens Windows stops load. I figure it is obviously confused by the sudden and unexpected disappearance of its hard drive. Anyone have a clue whats going on? I have a feeling its a combination of mobo, hard drive, and windows XP causing it. At first I thought perhaps the hard drive was overheating and shutting down. I installed a hard drive heatsink and the temps are normally below 30C now. The problem still remains however.

Here are my system stats.
AMD Opteron 170 (stock speeds for now with stock HSF)
ASUS A8N-E
2x Corsair 1024MXS 3200c2pt @ 2.5,3,3,6,1T
2x 400 GB Western digital SE16 drive
Lite-On DVD RW
X-Plosion DTS sound card
Antec NeoHE 550

Thanks in advanced for any assistance you can provide!

OK so I want to use Zoom Player and first I downloaded it and installed everything provided in the Install Center or whatever installation. No sound.

I had changed the sound output to my Realtek speakers. Nothing.

I tried the default directsound device. Nothing.

So I tried installing the K-Lite Codec Pack. It required several uninstallations but then I installed it fully.

Still no sound.

I found help on this forum indicating that the volume for Zoom Player may be muted in my mixer settings (Windows 7 X64).

Edit: I am trying to play MP4 files downloaded from Youtube.

It was not.

What the HECK is going on here and why isn't this problem automatically solved by Install Center????

I have used Zoom Player in the past and all that was necessary was installing the K-Lite codecs.

By the way, the people at InMatrix are total jerks because I indicated to them that if I got my problem solved I would buy the paid version of Zoom and still they do not respond.

Howdy, my brother! This computer is running XP Home SP2 on an Intel Core Duo HP Media Center - but it stopped has booting outside of Safe Mode. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/sty...fault/wacko.gifI allowed a computer novice friend who had been accessing his Yahoo!Mail acct from a public motel computer where he contracted a virus - without cautioning me - to access his mail from my PC. He says the virus on his Y!Mail is hardware independent - and modeled the behavior he found at the motel - i.e. when he attempts to write a new email or forward one, a script inserts nuisance text in that message. After he experienced that on my pc, web browser windows now run a script which hijacks the Zoom-in / Zoom out control and locks-up at either the zoom in or out (out is worse) because you only see a corner of the raster.I ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, AdAware, and my installed Avira AntiVir Guard - none of which detected anything but cookies. I installed some new camcorder software which rebooted the system. But after the Windows start-up screen, the screen just goes BLACK and the system is unresponsive.

I lost lost and internet. Media sound service couldn't start. Said something along the lines that found new hardward. And it wasn't communicating with my NIC card anymore.. I tried updated the drivers. No joy.

I contacted Biostar and asked for an issue. They recommend me to update drives and then reset bios setting to factory defaults. I tried that. No joy.

I then RMA's the vendor and got another mobo. Installed it and it had the same issue. No sound no internet.

Last nite I decided maybe I should just reinstall windows, but now my computer freezes on the bios screen.

I recently had to reinstall Windows 7 on my main PC. Before that my sound was fine. Now, I get 'zaps', pulses of intense static, whenever I (for instance) play a system sound - usually at the beginning or end, but nor precisely repeatable.

I moved my speakers from my sound card to the motherboard audio, and I get the same behavior. So I don't think this is hardware-related; if it were electrical noise I would have heard it before the Windows reinstall, and if it were driver related (for the sound card) I wouldn't hear it through the motherboard audio. I've updated all drivers anyway.

I did reinstall various codecs, but that seems to have had no effect at all.

If I use, say, Windows Media Player, I hear the little zaps at various times; perhaps at low audio levels, but I think mainly at the border between songs. It kind of feels like some startup transient, but I can't be sure of that. All the internet searching I've done hasn't led to much - mainly because most problems/solutions seem to be (say) sound-card specific.

The machine is a 64-bit CyberPowerPC, Windows 7 has all it's updates, all the drivers should be the newest stable drivers, there are no other problems with the machine. I've played with pretty much all the sound settings I can to try to get things to work - I don't think it's a clipping problem, for instance, as I've set the output levels to be fairly low.

Any help, ideas, suggestions, prayer... Read more

A:very strange sound problem in windows 7

Welcome to the forum allaballa.

Now to get to the good stuff, have you installed your audio driver that came with the mobo? Next, to get the spdf option to work, you have to go into your bios and manually turn it on, by default it should set itself to realtek audio or Via HD audio...or some variation of that. Have a look in your bios to see what you have. I believe your connection is setup one way and in your bios it's set up another way (default settings).

Ok....here's the wierd problem I have.

All normal audio works fine. I have an X-fi sound card.

What doesn't work however is windows log in and log off sounds and internal sounds, plus sites like youtube and similar give me video but no audio what so ever. I have no clue on what's broken.

I think it's windows and not my sound card because all normal audio stuff works, like games, music, Cubase and stuff like that.

I usually know my stuff too, but I'm flabbergasted here.

I'd try a windows repair but I installed windows in my F drive and it claims that when I try a repair to attempt repairing it on C: which makes no sense to me since there's not a dual boot or anything.

So I have winXP on F, not C is what I was basically saying.

Thanks for listening.

A:Windows XP sound system is strange

i would check the device manager to see if there are any devices not working. i would download the latest audio drivers and remove the old ones using the add/remove icon from the control panel. if you are using the latest drivers i would remove them and reboot and then reinstall them again.

it's possible you don't have the correct decompressor, so try installing k-lite full pack.

Can someone help please, I've had this problem occur a few times now and it is seriously pissing me off.

Most often the issue occurs after iTunes locks up or something while syncing a device (piece of **** software but that's not the point). Then Explorer.exe also hangs. After which ALL sound on the computer comes out in slow-motion. If I try to change the volume, the slider app (SndVol.exe) hangs as well. The only way to fix this is to restart, which is not always possible because I'm in the middle of some other stuff.

It starts off with my cursor doing the refresh/loading animation and a few seconds later it produces the sound, is this some sort of trojan/adware/keylogger?

A:Strange windows clicking/ad sound from system.

It may be that a program is performing an auto-update. I always set my programs to just notify me when an update is available. Then I have the option to select which updates to accept. I do this because I don't trust all the updates that become available. Many times they are just adware/tracking mechanisms, or worse yet the wrong update for your system that makes changes that you don't want that will conflict with programs that compete with your current programs. Another good reason for doing this is the update process may conflict with currently running processes/programs as they consume available bandwidth and CPU processing power. So, my advise is to set your updates to manual and selective ... you just have to maintain a regiment of doing it yourself. The convenience of an auto-update can lead to some serious problems that create more problems than they solve. Give it a try.

If that doesn't help check to see if Windows Error Reporting is on. I turn it off. Lastly, it may be that the system clicks are related to your Browser, if that is running, in which case there may be settings in your browser that stop it. I am like you as I find it disconcerting when I hear clicking that appears to have no correlation to what I am doing at the time. It is a hassle to do, but I'm willing to take precautions rather than accepting the consequences. If this doesn't work for you, come back, and let us know what specific programs you have running at the time it happens. We ma... Read more

the weird part is, the speakers arent working, but when i plug in my headphones, sound starts working, out of the speakers, while the headphones are plugged in with no sound coming out of the headphones, and thats pretty strange. but it gets stranger, pretty much anything plugged into the audio jack would make the speakers start working, even if it is just an adapter for another thing, and not even a headphone...


so i checked the sound in the control panel, and i said that it "could not detect sound card, restart and it will try to find it" or something, so i restarted and the problem still happened, but this time, the control panel says that "your device is working properly" when its obviously not.

When I boot up, it takes me straight to "My Documents" and when I close the page the screen is black, with just the curso Arrow. I can only get my Icons back with the "explorer.exe" command. But when I restart the laptop, the whole problem starts all over again. I don't have any idea how the problem started. I had initialy posted this problem on the windows Vista/windows 7 forum, but I can't seem to find the thread anymore. I'm sorry if I'm duplicating thing but it wasn't intentional. I have attached the various logs I was instructed to under "New Instructions" I hope that will help. BTW, I have Win Vista on the laptop, but I don't have a win vista boot cd.

Windows 7 Pro.
Comodo Free Firewall.
Panda Free Anti-virus.

Am having a few problems & hope someone can help.

Recently, when I turn on the computer, 90% of the time the monitor stays off (i.e. no signal). If I reboot, it comes on and boots as normal. Then sometimes I get a DOS screen ending in CMOS error "...press F2 to go to setup, F1 to load default values and continue...".

I googled that and I have changed the battery on the motherboard so it can't be that.

Anyway, next, the Windows start screen sits there for a minute or so (petal folding/unfolding) eventually everything will load (albeit slowly) and sometimes only half of the startup programs will be running. If I interrupt the procedure by pressing the boot key on the chassis, next time it will all start up normally.

What's going on here ?? Is it time to do a fresh Windows install or there is something easily fixable.

Thanks.

This is a difficult one to explain. I believe it occurred after a Windows update but Im not certain. When I boot or reboot my computer (XP) the boot process goes fine until I to the "Windows is starting up..." screen. Then there is a black screen with a dialogue box that says "OK" on the bottom and the only characters within the box are "㨰" I have No idea what this is and have no idea what it means, When I check OK the boot continues normally to Welcome and then teh desktop and the computer seems to run fine. Ive run Spyware and Virus detection software and no findings to indicate a problem. Has anyone seen anything like this and what can be done about it? Thanks in advance.

Recently, I was travelling with my computer. When I brought it home, it didn't boot up, and I was greatly concerned because, since it booted up fine before I transported it, it was likely a hardware-related problem. It simply froze on the Windows XP boot screen.
I posted on the forum earlier, and someone told me to just open the computer up and tighten all the cables. I simply tightened some random cables, like the ones leading into the motherboard, hard drives, and such, and it worked! The next time I tried to boot up, it didn't freeze!
However... I left the computer off over night, and then tried to boot it up this morning. Again, the computer is not getting past the Windows boot screen. I tightened all the cables, just as I did the last time, and nothing happened. What might this problem be?

I've been having this problem when turning on my pc.
Everytime I want to use my computer I have to go through this process:

1-Push power button
2-Wait for the computer to show 02 or 20 (depends from what angle you read it) on the DEBUG LED located in the back of my mobo.
When it reads 02 or 20 it just stays there, frozen, black screen and not able to go to BIOS.
3-Then I have to push reset button and if I am lucky enough my computer will boot normally without getting stucked in the same place.
Most of the time it boots normally when I do #3, when it doesn't then I have to: 4-Push the power button for 3 seconds and turn the computer back on again.

Earlier on I could not boot up the computer with any USB or FW device turned on because it would get stucked in #2. Then I discovered that by first turning on the computer and then the USB/FW devices I would be able to do the process previously mentioned to boot up properly.

I need some help, I find nowhere about this problem, I don't want to have to go through that process.
I know this sould be something easy, maybe something to do with USB ports.

Your motherboard BIOS is probably corrupted, because it is hanging before you get into Windows.

If you find the make and model of your computer, go to the manufacturers website and find out how to update/repair the BIOS.

Hope someone can help as i am at my wits end with this one!!!

i do repairs and custom builds from home and i have been faced with a problem that i can't solve.

the pc that i am working with is a new build. when i built it in my workshop it booted fine and was operational. When my client took it home it did work for a short period then it stopped. it doesn't boot, it gets to the windows screen, hangs, then says there is a software or hardware issue, then restarts.

When she brought it back to me to check it booted up fine. I had it for 2 days switching it on/off several times with no no problem. She took it home and she had the same problem. She brought it back to me and it booted up and she was with me this time. She took it home and again it still did not boot up.

She was working it from a 4way adapter and i asked her to plug it straight into the wall, she did and it is still happening!

Any ideas?

Hi all, been a while since I've been on this forum :P

I'm having an unusual problem with booting XP.

Basically, I installed Vista, testing it out, and decided it is still too buggy, with Disk Management, Dual Bootloader and some other things. Also, it seems messy. But anyway, after installing that, the boot loader decided against working properly, and it loaded XP instead of Vista. But, if I had a CD inserted, such as the Vista disc, not hit any key so it loads from hard drive, it loads Vista! What??

After trying many things, I decided to kill Vista, and replace it with a clean version of XP. Installed fine. But now, if I don't have a CD inserted, it comes up with "Disk boot failure, insert system disc and press enter", however, if I insert a disc, wait for it to skip booting from CD, so it boots from Hard drive, it works fine!

As I have still got the other version of XP on the other drive, as I wanted to keep my documents and stuff, I thought that may be causing some issues, so I tried changing it from a primary to logical drive. Nope, didn't work.

I tried messing around with the boot options in the BOIS, didn't work.

I just want to boot XP normally!

Any help on this would be great!
Thanks.

This is a complicated one. When I built my PC in 2011, I was really into tech and an PC fanatic. So, being my idiotic self, I installed both Windows 8 Consumer Preview and Ubuntu, although I do not remember which came first. I have Windows 7 on my SSD, 8 on a partition on my HDD, and I don't know where Ubuntu is (help finding that would be much appriciated if possible too). I do remember that when I was using the 8 Consumer Preview (CP), I eventually got a BSOD, even when booting to the SSD that 7 is on. I don't remember how I got around the issue, but eventually I solved it. Up until recently, when I booted I saw the GRUB screen, then a Windows 7 boot screen promting me to windows 7. However, I wanted a new GPU to run Battlefront and Fallout 4, so I picked up a PowerColor R9 390. The card would not output video past the BIOS screen due to a bug with the DP67BG motherboard I have, but I eventually googled enough to find that windows does boot, and I just need to remotly install the drivers then I will be good. I determined I needed to get Windows 7 to boot by default, not the GRUB screen since I cannot see it with the new card. However, when using the system repair disk to detect my installation, it said it needed to make a change, so I let it. Now, when I boot to my SSD, the Windows 8 preview tries to load, then crashes. However, when I boot to my HDD, the GRUB screen appears. I just want to get back to being able to boot straight to windows 7, with no input needed. I've spe... Read more

Hello all,
I'm new here and this forum looks like the place to try to explain this problem I'm having.
A lot of helpful info here on the forum but I haven't seen anything quite like this.. Here goes..

First Off...
The System Specs:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 2.4GHz
ASUS PN5SLI Motherboard W/ NVidia 570 chipset w/ latest NForce drivers.
4gb (4 x 1gb) DDR2 PC5300 RAM
NVidia GeForce 7600GT 256mb Graphics Card
WDC 300gb SATA2 Hard Drive
Maxtor 250gb IDE Hard Drive

I have Windows XP Pro 32 bit installed on my primary hard drive which is a SATA2 drive plugged into SATA port 3 on the motherboard. All is well and it boots normally.
I want to move to XP Pro x64 edition which I have installed on secondary drive which is a standard IDE drive plugged into IDE port 1
I'm trying to set this up for dual boot so I can make sure all my hardware / software works correctly on the 64-bit before installing it as my primary OS.

I've been running the 32 bit Windows on the primary drive for awhile and just purchased XP Pro 64. When Installing from the CD, it asked which drive to install it on, This is the first thing I noticed that was different. In Windows 32 bit, my main drive is C:, DVD Burner is D: and second hard drive is E: When installing Windows XP 64, setup gave me the drive choices for the install but the drive letters were pointing to the wrong drives. Windows setup gave me the choices C: and D: where C: was my second drive and D: was my primary SATA2 drive! Sin... Read more

Hi

I've been having a few issues with my comp in recent times, so I'll list in order how things have unfolded to this point. I am running:

Athlon 2100+
512 DDR
Soltek mainboard (SL-75DRV5-C)
Omni 350w max PSU
Windows 2000 Pro

Anyway, one night I wake up to find the computer reset and refusing to boot (ironically after installing iTunes that night, but that probably has nothing to do with anything). I would power off and on, reset and unplug the power cable, and it would never go, just giving me warning beeps. I decided to wait until the morning to deal with it. When I boot that morning, no dramas, everything is fine.

From there though, the OS becomes incredibly unstable, running certain programs would see the computer soft reset, as would extended periods of use. I formatted and reinstalled the OS, which helped slightly, but still didn't fix the problems.

Things got worse to where on booting, often the system would lock up with a garbled screen at the POST, wouldn't even load up the DOS breakdown of HDD's and memory screen, or when it did actually boot, Win2K would either give the 'the file x is corrupt and needs to be fixed, please boot a windows CD and press r to repair' (the file name could never be seen), or blue screen shortly after finishing the 'starting windows 2000' bar or on the splash screen. At best it would finish loading the splash screen but then reset instead of going into the OS. This would occur in various co... Read more

A:Strange issues with booting and OS startup

The first thing I would do is remove all non-essential peripherals. Swap even the video card if you have a substitute. Disconnect even the CD/DVD drives and their power connectors.

The problem could still be in the main board; but, don't be surprised if it takes quite a bit longer to give a problem. The system, having fewer peripherals, will be less stressed.

How many hard disks do you have and what sizes are they?

If you have more than one memory chip, remove one. If the problem continues, swap, again continuing with only one chip.

You're going to determine the source of this problem only by process of elimination.

Thanks

What is the make and model# of your computer? This is not a Windows 7 logo. This may be a POST logo for your motherboard that is telling you everything is OK. One of the boxes didn't complete, then there would be a problem.

Right... here is the info for my PC:

Microsoft Windows Xp
Media Center Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 2

Manufacted by MDG Computers Canada
Pentium 4 CPU 2.93 GHz, 504 MB of RAM

The problem that seems to occur with the pc has started recently... but it's bugging me every since.
When starting the computer, it hangs at the windows xp logo screen with the moving bar. Restarting makes the computer give me Choices on whether to go to safe mode, networking safe mode, or command prompt safe mode. It also gives me the choices to start with the last known good configuration and to start windows normally.

All the safe modes work but the last two (most useful ones) don't work - it just hangs once more.

I've tried doing a repair install, but it gives me TWO errors:

Errors occured during registration of Windows Media Center (see log for details).
An error installing a part of the .NET framework. (version 2.0)

I"m sorry, but i don't have the exact details of the problem (i've done so many repair installs that i've grown tired of it), but the next time i do i'll repost the accurate description of the errors.

Now, the repair install continues after giving the two errors, and it installs just fine. It works too after. After doing a repair install, it restarts just fine. However, after shutting it down again.. same problem occured. Next time i did a repair install, i uninstalled all the .NET framework i had (v.1.1 to 3.5), and reinstalled .NET Frame... Read more

If you can get the PC to stay on long enough to check your Event Viewer for errors coinciding with your freeze times.

You could also try to Run the Recovery Console and press R. When at the command prompt type: fxmbr or fxboot.

my laptop is very slow to start-up I get the "Please Wait" before the login screen. Once I do log in I get the error:

"Failed to connect to a windows service.

Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service. This problem prevents limited users from logging on to the system. As an administrative user, you can review the System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond."

it happened after i installed k-lite codec pack because my windows dvd maker was crashing none stop, and now it takes forever to boot into windows.

ok so safemode doesn't work i just get a cursor and stuck there for 15 minutes or so,
tried startup repair and doesn't help
tried chkdsk but says i can't do it so i tried with safemode but no luck
tried system restore, restore to the last point which was removing steam
tried last good know configuration didn't work

should also mention before startup takes 5 secs now 5 minutes.

running out of ideas help? plzzz
 

A:strange problem extra slow booting

I'm surprised that system restore didn't work. If you're able to, you might want to backup your data and consider doing a clean install of Windows 7. Admittedly, this is rather extreme, but it seems like you've tried most of the reasonable options.

A while back, something particularly strange happened. I started up my laptop but it booted as if it was a brand new pc and gave me the screens you first see after purchasing one.
Screens like:
"Hi. We're setting things up for you." while the background changes color occasionally.
On the login screen, the picture I usually have as the login background was still there before suddenly changing to a default background.
And after I logged in, my desktop was completely empty except for the recycle bin and the wallpaper had changed to one of the default choices. Shortly after, an error message appeared saying something about the desktop missing. I don't remember exactly what the message said. Later, I restarted my laptop and after that everything was back to normal. My files and programs were there like they were before.
I tried looking this up online but I wasn't entirely sure on how to word it so I was unable to find answers, therefore, I am here.
I didn't do anything big before this incident other than running Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool as well as CCleaner so this is very weird. So far, everything is going just fine but I worry there could be big underlying problems that I'm not seeing. Are there any explanations for this? (hopefully it's not haunted)

I have Windows 8.1 and have had this laptop for about 5 years.
 

A:Strange thing happened when booting up laptop

Other than the error message have you had any kind of problems? I've had this happen when something, probably an update set things back to default.

I have a messed up problem. A while ago i had XP and Vista both running in dual boot great. No problems at all. Well last Christmas i got another hard drive, and decided to set them up in a raid.

So i went to reinstall my operating systems, and have not been able to get it working again since. The point i am at now is i have XP installed on my C: drive, Vista installed on my D: drive. However, i can't get my computer to see the Vista install. I have tried repairing it with Vista disc, tried reinstalling the boot loader for vista with EasyBCD, and i even tried reinstalling Vista completely finally last night.

When i reinstalled it last night, the first part of setup went good with no problems, copied all files over and all that stuff. When it did the first reboot, it just went right back into XP and didn't do anything about the Vista install.

I have NO idea what to do at this point. Originally i was able to get into Vista on the first time i installed it, but as soon as i added XP to the boot loader, it stopped working, and i haven't been able to get back into Vista ever since.

Hopefully someone has some idea of what i can do!!

Thanks in advance!

Every time I boot my XP Pro machine, I get the annoying message entitled "test" saying "failure CreateService. err: 1072". If I click OK (only choice), I get another box entitled "DiagAP8169" and saying "Fail to load RTL8169 diagnostic driver." Click on OK and boot resumes. Annoying only, but bothersome.

Can anyone tell me what to do to get rid of this?

For a while now my computer has been doing this really weird thing o me. It happens most the time on the internet (browser doesnt matter) and my computer will either zoom in all the way, zoom out or constanyl zoom in and out. Most the time I can "fight" my way out of it by hitting zoom in and out on my keyboard, but not always. Does anyone know what this problem is and can help me fix it?

Thanks!

A:Zoom in/Zoom out freeze out

Are you using the ctrl button on the keyboard when this happens? If not, do you have a different keyboard you can use to see if the problems persists?
