speakers auto turn off after 5 minutes

Q: speakers auto turn off after 5 minutes

I have a sonic impact t24 speaker. I currently run 64 bit vista on the computer connected to the speakers. The computers sound goes through its aux input.

One of the speakers 'features' is that the speakers automatically turn off after five minutes of no use. The only way to power it back on is manually via the remote. I'm wondering if anyone knows of some background program that spits out a small (inaudiable of close to it) sound or something that could keep my speakers awake. (or of course if anyone has a more creative approach, I'm in) I've tried quite a few google searches to no avail. As much as I avoid wasting power, sometimes its just nice to hear aim inform you that someones messaged you in the other room or other things to that effect. Thank you for the help in advance.

Preferred Solution: speakers auto turn off after 5 minutes

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.)

Thanks to everyone for the help on my earlier thread.

I replaced the CPU and mobo (upgrades ftw) and now I'm able to power-up and get into BIOS.

My new problem is that the computer powers down suddenly, without warning, after being on for less than 2 minutes.

CPU: Intel Core2Duo (E6420)
Mobo: EVGA nForce 680i SLI 775 A1
RAM: OCZ 2GB DDR1066 (OCZ2N1066SR2GK)
GPU: EVGA 7600GT (256-P2-N550-T2)
HD: WD 160GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s (WD1600YS)
OD: Sony DVD Burner (AW-Q170A-B2)
PSU: Apevia 500W (ATX-CW500WP4)
Case: XION II XON-101 Mid Tower

All of the fans, including the one attached to the CPU's heatsink, are moving. It's on for such a short amount of time that I doubt it's heat related. Would it be not enough power? The mobo recommends an 8-pin 12V connection, but accepts a 4-pin. I'm not running SLI. I have hardly any components. Is it just power hungry maybe?

UPDATE: After checking the forums over at EVGA, I removed the heatsink, reapplied thermal paste, and reinstalled the heatsink. It's been on for 6 minutes now and I'm finally installing windows. Wish me luck!!
 

A:Auto-shutdown after 1-2 minutes

I installed a heatsink once and forgot to remove the protective tape. Be sure you didn't do that.

If not properly cooled, a CPU can overheat in as little as one- or two seconds.

I am running 5 Windows 7 machines in condominium building. We just upgraded from old machines running WinXP to new ones with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

Previously, I was successfully able to install the winexit.scr from the WinNT resource kit and modify the appropriate registry permissions to get it to work.

I tried installing the same way on Win 7 and can't get it to work. Keep getting the registry error referenced in this MS Support article. Is it just me or does this not work on Windows 7?

I also tried setting up a task via task scheduler using shutdown.exe /l when idle for 15 minutes. But I can't get it to run with I append the /c "comment" or /t xxx time before log out. That would be another solution, but I would like to give users a 2 minute warning before it logs them out. When i try running 'shutdown /l /t 120' it just displays the shutdown help info. Same thing if I try the /c toggle. 'shutdown /l' works but instantly logs you off.

Any and all help is appreciated. I don't care which way I get it to work, but would like to get something working that accomplishes:

1) Logs out current user after a specified idle time
2) Displays some sort of message to user
3) Gives user ~ 2 minutes to save work, etc, or just move the mouse (winexit allowed for a 'cancel' button so if someone was there they could cancel the log off -- this would be the ideal situation)

Thanks.

Are you sure the music file you are playing is ok? not trying to insult you or anything but I have had similar questions before from people, saying my video stops playing after 30 minutes, why........ erm because the videos was actually only 30 mins long!!!

Sometimes music files, if they are corrupt they will not play once they encounter a problem, I had this with files that I converted...

is this happening to all your music files?

Have you tried to update your audio drivers?

Also what application are you using to play this music files?

This problem just started last night, and I have a feeling it might be related to the optional updates I installed. (Win10 update is both hidden in WU and disabled in the registry for now, I'm giving it a couple of months to shake out first.) At first I thought it was my external keyboard/mouse acting up, but I removed the dongle and it still happens. The event viewer shows lots of these events:






The system has returned from a low power state.

Sleep Time: ‎2015‎-‎08‎-‎05T22:33:29.891174000Z
Wake Time: ‎2015‎-‎08‎-‎05T22:42:54.338772700Z

Wake Source: Device -ACPI Lid



Every time it sleeps now, 5-10 minutes later it reports that the lid opened, when it certainly did not.

The updates I installed yesterday were:
3075853
2976978 (I'm thinking of uninstalling this to test it, I wonder if the new metrics is waking it up)
3071663
3055343
3035583
3065013
3072019

Oddly enough, I had already installed 2976978 on July 28, and it must have been reoffered or something, because WU prompted me to update it again. In the meantime, has anyone else seen this and narrowed down the cause?

Edit: I've ruled out some of the Windows Updates. It actually stays asleep if it's unplugged, so I'm going to assume it's a hardware problem.

Hi Everyone,

I'm a new member and hoping that someone can give some pointers to fix the problem I am having with my PC:

PC: Home built (3 years old)
OS: Win 7
Hardware: Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q6600
Memory: 8GB
Box: Antec Black
HDs: Seagate / WD
Mobo: Gigabyte
Thank you in advance for your help. My home built PC (antec box, Intel Quad core CPU, 8GB ram) that I built few year ago has stopped working since past several months. It was working phenomenoly until this problem showed up.

Symptoms. I turn on computer. While booting, it goes through BIOS checkup as usal. Sometime, it even reaches to the point of start loading Win 7. And suddenly (within a minute or 2) , the computer abruptly just shuts off. This happens now every time.

What could be going on? I wonder if heatsink on CPU is damaged and CPU heats up (?). It doesn't sound like memory error to me either. Where do I start for debugging? I am baffled and unsure where/what to look (?)

Very frustrating! Please help!

Hi and welcome to TSG.

First thing I would have a look at is the power supply (PSU).

How old is it? I assume its the same age as the overall PC.
Exactly what make, model and wattage is it?
Have you ever upgraded any components since you first built the machine?
What graphics card are you using? (on board as part of the motherboard or a standalone card?)

Have a look in the BIOS and find the temperatures and voltages that it displays. Post the values in a reply here.

Ok, this has become the most frustrating thing when trying to do work on the computer. I just don't understand why it is so difficult to stay connected to the internet with the most advanced router & high speed cable internet I could afford.

I have a Netgear N600 Dual band router WNDR3400 and I believe a WNR2000 wireless adapter.

Apparently this router is a dual band, I set up 2 different networks when doing the initial install, but yet my computer only sees the 2nd network?!

What other info do you guys need to help me figure out why it keeps dropping the connection?

Thank you.

Change the channel of your router to 1 or 11, if it is located on an outside wall, move the router as far away from the wall as possible.

My computer has gone to crap. I was using the internet and I suddenly got an alert that a trojan had been found on my computer. I went to go quarentine it using my antivirus software (AVG), and then the computer restarted. Now whenever the computer boots up, after a few minutes at the home screen the screen will go black, then I get a blue screen saying a problem has been detectd and windows has been shut down and will restart. The rest of the screen is a lot of how-to-prevent information and then at the bottom it initializes information for a crash dump and dumps physical memory to a disk. Then the computer restarts again. I've been trying to use the computer in safe mode to get some different malware removal software to get rid of it but even after it supposedly got rid of some of the trojan files it found, it still keeps giving me the blue screen when I boot normally. Not only that, but now the computer is loading more slowly, and I can't open a few programs. I'm running Windows 7 64 bit.

I used HijackThis and got the log file, although I did this while the computer was in safe mode and am not sure if that makes a difference. Anyways the results of the log are the following, thanks for the help:

Hey back In windows 7, When I plugged in a pair of headphones the sound automatically changed to the what it was last time I plugged them in.
And when I unplugged them, the sound switched back to speakers...
In windows 8 (not pro version) when I plug in headphones, the sound doesn't go back to 8/100 like I set it last time I plugged them in. It will stay at 100/100 or whatever the speakers were set at.

Also when I unplug them, the sound will not change back to the speaker level, it'll stay down at whatever it was at.

I thought it'd be alright, but now it's getting really annoying.

Every time i plug the headphones in, I have to put the sound down to not blow out my ears. And when I unplug, I have to put sound up...

Anyone know why this is so? I can't recall if my old Windows 8 Pro had the auto sound change or not.

A:Switch Between Headphones and SPeakers no auto

I've never seen that, but if you had it before its a function of the sound driver or possibly any add-on sound application (e.g. the Beats Audio). Beats Audio is not the actual sound device, its just a HP add on to the sound similar to what Creative does with the SoundBlaster Audigy MB software enhancements.

Hello!

I have an Acer Power F5 desktop running Windows XP SP3. The other day I hit the power switch after it had been in hibernation and nothing happened. After making sure it had mains power and the cord was in I decided my power supply must have blown overnight and went to my notebook. After about 20 minutes, the Acer turned itself on. I had not touched it in the meantime.

I left it on all day then powered it down. After leaving it off overnight, I touched the power switch once and nothing happened. The network connected LED was on, a solid blue. Then 22 minutes later, it started up.

I have done a search but can't seem to find any posts on this issue. Does anyone have any suggestions?

This problem is accurring on a different computer than the one I'm on now. It's a HP with a Window XP Professional (Version 5.1, Service Pack 2) Operating System. Since it repeatedly shuts off in the normal turn on mode, I've also tried to start while pressing the F8 key, and then the Safe Mode option, as well as the option that says something like 'go back the the last working settings,' and neither works. The computer simply seems to start up normally (showing the desk top icons, etc.), but then shut itself off after approx. 1 to 3 minutes.

Howdy,

Recently, I've noticed that if my computer is off, once I hit the power button on the front of the computer it acts totally dead for a minute or more and then powers up. Nothing will happen at all for a while- no sounds, lights or fans starting up, then a while later the computer powers on and goes through startup like it always had.

Can someone tell me why the computer's doing this?

Hi all,

I've had Windows 7 Home Premium installed for less than 2 weeks now and this is already getting on my nerves! I do NOT want my monitor to turn off if I leave my PC idle, so in the Power Options I have chosen 'Never' for 'Turn off the display'. However it keeps resetting itself to 20 minutes and turning off the monitor after that amount of time anyway!

I first of all set this for the Balanced plan and I have also created my own power plan called 'Always on' and made sure the options are set to Never - but in both cases Windows is overriding my settings I have chosen - why?

I also don't want my PC to lock when I resume from hibernation, so in the advanced settings I have changed 'Require a password on wakeup' to 'No', but that keeps resetting itself to Yes as well!

Why won't Windows 7 remember the settings I've chosen?!!?

Please can someone tell me why this is happening and how to fix it.

P.S. It's a standalone PC so no group policy or similar is in effect.

Thanks in advance
Steven

A:'Turn off the display' resets itself to 20 minutes instead of Never!

Hello, I am having the similar problem but the other way around tho.

I set my display to turn off after 45 min (default is 20 min) and put the computer to sleep after 2 hours (default is Never). Yeah, I did saved it but often the power plan changed itself back to default (display off 20 min and never go to sleep).

I am still looking for the fix. If I can find the fix it probably fix your as well since we both having a hard time to keep the power plan to where we saved it at.

Hi,I've searched the forums and tried all suggestions to no avail.When my laptop is unplugged, after about 2 minutes of inactivity, the screen goes dim. I'm on Win 10 64 bits.Most forum posts suggest checking two things, which I did, and it didn't fix the issue:I checked Windows' power settings, and I set the brightness to 100% even when on battery.I've disabled the "Adaptive brightness" setting, and the "Dim display after X minutes" setting.I checked Intel's Graphics power settings and disabled the "Power saving technology" setting.Nothing works. I don't know what to check next.It's fine when I work on my laptop because it isn't "inactive", but as soon as I watch a video on Youtube or Netflix the screen dims after a couple of minutes.The dimming itself is also weird. It not like only brightness is reduced. Even color saturation is down, as if the display had a milky white filter applied to it.Any help in tracking down this issue is greatly appreciated.Thanks.

Hi all,

I recently updated my AMD drivers as Civ: Beyond Earth asked me to. Since then, the Audio Manager has not been able to detect the speakers automatically.

I regularly plug in and unplug my headset and previously the system would detect it being removed and automatically switch the sound to come out of my monitor (a small TV). For some reason it now switches to Optical out, which I have nothing connected to. Plugging the headset in resets it to Speakers and I can hear sound from the headset.

I can't re-enable Speakers as my playback device as it's listed as 'Not connected' even though it is. The only solution I've found is to completely restart, which I shouldn't have to do every single time I unplug my headset.

I'm going to try disabling all the audio devices on control panel and then restarting to see if it detects the correct ones again. I'll edit here if it works.

A:Realtek Audio HD Manager does not auto-detect speakers

Apparently a problem with the AMD drivers. I assume you are connecting via HDMI to the TV.
Roll back the AMD drivers to the previous version and see if that fixes it.

When you are using HDMI, the PC sound, e.g. RealTek is not being used. The sound is generate in the Video Card.

When an HDMI cable is plugged in the Video Card detects that and sets a flag for Windows that HDMI is connected and Windows will automatically make the HDMI the Default Playback device.

yesterday i installed malware bytes because my disk space was drastically decreasing and it went to 0 bytes from 2 gb in no time.After scanning malbytes showed certain files that were infected and i moved them to quarantine.This didn't help so i deleted certain files to free disk space.
also malbytes keeps on showing a message that "access blocked to a malicious website with a certain ip address."

But today when i switched on my laptop it just hangs after a while and even task manager won't work, no program would open but it is working fine in safe mode.

some information about the laptop-

Intel core 2 duo
2gb ram [email protected] ghz
microsoft windows xp professional sp2

Hello, The fan in my lenovo X220 tablet stops working after awhile from turning the device on (after around 10 minutes). This causes the temperature of the processor to always be above 90 degree C (using TPFanControl V 0.61). The fan control software shows that the fan is turning at 4060 RPM, but there is absolutly no air coming out! I recently re-applied the thermal paste, and the problem (fan turning off) "might" have started after re-applying the thermal past - I did it in a local computer service shop. I tried to update the BIOS, but the battery does not work and the installation does not start (it gives me an error) because of that. I have been using my X220 for six years with no problems and I currently run windows 10. Please let me know if you have any idea on how to fix this issue. 

A:Lenovo X220 Tablet Fan Turn Off after few minutes

There are only 2 parts involved - the fan and the motherboard.  If the fan bearing gets hot and seizes, it would spin at start-up to avoid the fan error message.  Fans are cheaper than motherboards, so if it were mine, I would try a new fan.

Thanks!

A:start a software 5-10 minutes after windows 7 is turn on!

You could set a basic script to run on startup loading your program and add any time delay you like
add the flag timeout /t XX where XX is the number of seconds you wish to delay by so for 5 minutes add /t 300

Hello, I have a huge problem with a customers desktop which is a Dell Inspiron One 19T, at first the problem was the drivers, sound and touch screen drivers where a hassle but I managed to fix this following an order

Fixing Touchscreen
Repair HDD Sectors using a third party bootable program like Partition Magic, Formatted the HD and installed Windows 8 Pro x64. After activating the OS I used Windows Update and installed all important updates.
After restarting, I updated .NET Framework 4.5 and installed NextWindow version 3.1.6, you can find this driver in catalog.update.microsoft.com after the installation, touch screen worked perfectly.

Fixing Audio
Fixing the audio was a breeze, just download Conexant High Definition Smart Audio and install the driver after a chipset installation from Dell Support, you can find this drivers in Dell Support page.

Just leaving a few instructions incase anyone has the same problem.

Back to the problem, this Dell Inspiron One 19T turns off when writing a large file onto the HDD, for example, after I installed all drivers, I started sending archives from a back up HDD I had to the Dell Inspiron One 19T, after a few minutes it then turned off without any warning and it wouldnt turn back on until after a few minutes. I have a feeling it has something to do with the HDD and the MOBO. Any ideas or solution would be VERY appreciated because these DELL computers are VERY annoying.
Thank you
 

A:Desktop shuts down and doesnt turn off until after a few minutes

1. Welcome to Tech Support Guy

2. I think I am correct in saying that Dell does NOT list drivers for that computer for Windows 8, indeed your post appears to indicate this.
The fact you have managed apparently to find drivers that work - and frequently Windows 7 drivers will - does not mean that Windows 8 will like them and you may well encounter problems, as indeed it appears you are

3. This is what concerns me most
Repair HDD Sectors using a third party bootable program like Partition MagicClick to expand...

What please do YOU mean by repair HDD sectors - as if you refer to a sector listed as a bad sector and it is really IS a bad sector, in that the part of the disc cannot retain data, then there is NO program that can REALLY repair it.

I have a 3 year old Toshiba Satellite L300, recently it has been taking a long time to turn on. The green light comes on for the power and battery, I have tried taking out the battery and holding the button etc. Sometimes it turns on straight away, other times it can take up ten minutes of me holding the power button to turn on.

Any ideas what the problem could be? Thanks

Hello,

2-3 minutes into gamplay my pc will show a black screen, the pc appears to still be on, but non functional,

I cannot access the desktop or task manager,

I have run the dxdiag,

I have posted this to the games manufacturer, but they have insisted its computer problem, and nothing to do with their game,

The game is World Of Tanks, and they have advised me to run a DxDiag, which I uploaded to them -

Is their any settings i can change on my computer to stop this from happening ?

Many Thanks

Stuart

A:2-3 minutes into gameplay, pc will crash (not turn off) just black scr

Stuart, I could be totally wrong here but, by looking at the little bit of info on your system specs, it appears that you have a low end graphic card. It makes no sense to me how they sell you an i7 CPU, win 7 64 bit with 16GBs of ram and yet, a very old GPU?

All I can tell you is make sure you have the latest video and audio drivers. If you do, perhaps something got corrupt when you installed the game so it wouldn't be a bad idea to uninstall the current video driver and install a fresh copy of it.

Also, during game installation, did it ask you to install DX9 and you probably skipped that part? if so, perhaps reinstall the game and install everything it asks you.

Good Luck

I have an Asus EEE PC netbook and for some reason when I plug in my headphones the speakers won't turn off. I pretty sure it used to, but I can't get it to now. The headphones work while they're plugged in, but the stupid speaker won't turn off, so there's no point.

Please give me any suggestions, Thank you.

I'm using laptop ASUS X43U and VGA ATI Radeon HD 6310M. My BSOD usually appear when i make my laptop sleep for 15 - 20 minutes. Then after turn on, first black windows with only cursor appear and then BSOD started. I just saw atikmpag.sys and time calculated until 100 then restart and after restart i got information "Your Windows is not shutdown normally. There is 3 option : 1. Start Windows normally. 2 and 3 i forgot but i see there is option "Safe Mode". Any solution what happen with my laptop ? For information i always use this laptop for 3 hours. Every 3 hours i make sleep 15 minutes and use this laptop 3 - 6 hours. I guess i must update driver VGA but when i go web AMD and i choose software Automatically and Detect and use it, that software didn't download which right driver VGA for me.

A:BSOD happen every turn on my laptop from sleep 15 - 30 minutes

Hi Nobodies.

This is not an usual situation of a BSOD. I have never seen a stop 0x116 upon wake-up. Though display crash at wake-up is most common, but it comes with a different bugcheck code. Whereas a stop 0x116 is theoretically a display failure, not a wake-up failure.

It also appears from the supplied data that your computer ASUS K43U is having AMD Radeon HD 6310, which is an integrated graphics chip in the AMD E-350 APU processor, not having any dedicated memory.

When the integrated processor graphics fails, it is not a good sign.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Follow the "Automatically Detect and Install" option in Download Drivers, update the version of the display driver.

Let us know the results.
* I requested essenbe to have a look at the issue, too.

I've been having problems for a while now. It's 2 actually.

First problem is that sometimes when I'm just doing stuff on my computer (browsing, watching videos) the screen just freezes or sometimes goes all black and it sounds like the computers restarting. However, the screen just stays black so I hold the power button to turn it off. When I try to turn it on again the screen still just stays black. I have to wait about 6 minutes or so then try turning on again and it will boot properly.

Second problem is that whenever I do Shut Down properly, after "Saving your settings, Computer is shutting down" or something I get a Blue Screen saying some STOP error and it says that the Windows Logon process has terminate unexpectedly or something similar. So once again I must hold the power button to turn off the computer.

Also, I think my hard drive may be failing. It's partitioned into C and D. C has got all my Windows files on it while D is just for storage. sometimes when I download things it won't save because of a bad sector or something. Does this have anything to do with my computer acting up?

I've attached my HijackThis log. please help. I have no idea what's happening.
