It's the most suspicious sound I've ever heard. It sounds exactly like fat, felt tip marker making a quick check on paper. It can also be compared to a rat sniff or a piece of paper being turned. I wear headphones and can hear this noise occasionally for up to 15 minutes. It likes to happen at night, when 'they' are active ( humor me ). Because of the sneaky, low volume, discreet, low down, creepy, stalky, shifty sound I am disposed to imagine that someone is looking through my files for credit information and they are unaware of these sounds from my sound card, or they don't care about the sound because they are safe from being caught.

Sound like I'm crazy? Just paranoid. I did say it makes me imagine. The kind of person I am is the same kind that will run system restore at a moment's notice for anything that looks suspicious or a NoScript violation. Because that sound is clearly designed to resemble a sniffing rat doing something sneaky on my computer. I tried to record the output with Audacity 1.3, but it had stopped before I had recorded anything.

My setup:

Windows XP Pro 64 bit Service Pack 2
Verizon High Speed Internet
Marvell Yukon 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller
LinkSys Router routing to a Windows 7 laptop, WPK-PSK, TKIP
Soundblaster Live!

A:Solved: Suspicious sound coming from sound card output.

It was that Windows XP search dog. When you ctrl + f to open the search side bar in a window there is an animated dog that seems innocuous. Every 15 minutes or so it will scratch itself and make that noise twice. As long as that search side bar is open, minimized or not, that noise will persist.

Hi there, hoping someone can help as this issue is driving me mad...

I'm hoping to start streaming soon using Adobe Flash Media Encoder, after opening the software and configuring it I thought great, its recognised my DJ controller that is connected by USB (using Traktor), it'll be an easy job to select that then away we go... Not so simple apparently... It does recognise it and it allows me to select it but it does not register any audio input despite me trying to blow the house down with sound...

I then went over to control panel > sound > devices where I see it is again recognised as an audio input on the playback and recording tabs but again there is no registered input on the level meters...

This smacks of a very easy solution but I can't for the life of me think of what to do...

The controller is a reloop dj controller interface edition - with an internal soundcard in it and phono output that is connected to my speakers. it is connected to my laptop via a normal usb firewire.

I was considering buying an external soundcard to see if that works but am reluctant as theres a soundcard in the laptop and one in the midi controller - why on earth do I need another one??

Hoping someone can help!

My laptop's sound isn't working, and when I mouse over the speaker icon in the corner there's a red X with the message "No Audio Output Device Installed." I've looked on other forums for the solution and here's what I've tried so far:

-I've been told to disable and enable the sound device in Device Manager, but there's nothing under "Sound Video and Game Controllers"

-I've tried to reinstall the audio drivers (Realtek HD Audio and Conextant HD Audio). The Realtek driver says it installed correctly, but it still doesn't show up in device manager or anywhere else and the "No Audio Output" message still persists. The Conextant driver gives me the error message "Cannot Find Device" when trying to install it, but I've noticed something weird: I can see a Conextant HD Audio thing under "Add or Remove Programs".

-Windows Audio is running under Administrator Tools, I've checked.

-I've done a system restore back to factory settings and it still doesn't work.

My laptop is a Hp Pavilion dv6700z with Windows Vista Service Pack 1. I think a windows update might have screwed it up; I can hear a popping noise when plugging in my earbuds and I can hear the error beeps under system setup, so the speakers themselves work. Can somebody please help me out?

I would like to share my experiences how to fix noisy audio output on Dell Optiplex 755 under linux. I did try changing power supply, better video card, adding separate sound card (front panel audio output doesn't work then) updating drivers and even changing the whole computer. I was first sure that the reason for the noise must be old capacitors somewhere in the system board or in the power supply. It took me months to find the solution.
The symptoms are: static noise on audio even if there should be no sound at all. The noise doesn't depend on the audio volume. 
The solution: open terminal, start alsamixer. HDA Intel Analog Devices AD1984 should open. Use right cursor key to scroll the screen until Beep audio level adjust is selected. Lower the volume of Beep down. This should fix the noisy output.  I set the Beep volume to 6%.Apparently Beep sound output produces low level noise even if no beep sound is produced. If Beep volume is adjusted to high in alsamixer, this noise is amplified and added to the audio mix.

A:How can I get sound output from sound card when streaming video?

Hello green,

You get sound from your microphone? I don't think I am understanding. Sound should come from your sound card. You plug the speakers into the back of the computer and into the sound card (green jack). The mic receives sound. My mic is USB so it doesn't use any jack other than the USB port, but if you use the sound card, it goes into the purple jack

Do you have the audio driver installed? This should be right: http://support.acer.com/product/defa...x?modelId=2192

My sound card (SoundBlaster Live, 5.1 digital) has an output for 6-channel surround sound. The output says its connected as follows:

"DIGITAL OUT (Front and Rear SPDIF digital outputs) via 4-pole 3.5mm minijack on rear bracket"

Here's the manual:


The guy at Radioshack says to use a 3.5mm to RCA left and right speaker output. But I'm not sure that's right because how would that give front and rear sound? I want to run this to a Receiver.

Hello, and thanks in advance for your time!Earlier this afternoon, I noticed that the sound on my Thinkpad W510 was no longer working. I hadn't really done anything of note with my computer- just updated Adobe Reader to v9.2, that I can think of. When I checked the notification area, I saw this:However, when I right click and click "Playback Devices", I get the following: I immediately checked Device Manager, and found that everything appeared to be fine:I tried uninstalled and reinstalling the Conexant and NVIDIA drivers, as well as updating BIOS. Nothing seems to help, When try to use the mute/volume buttons on the keyboard, the speaker mute button lights up when pressed, but the microphone mute and volume +/- buttons don't appear to do anything. I've also tried plugging in headphones, and that does not make any difference. When I boot from an Ubuntu CD, however, sound works fine, so I don't think that it's a hardware issue.Anything that you folks could do to point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Ever since I got my second Video Card and went SLI I have had crippling sound problems. After playing for a while all sounds get replace with a high pitched squeal. This is only with games, not music (using WMP), DVDs (using WinDVD), and only with my sound card, not the (crappy) onboard sound (which has no problem). Some games may play for three minutes, others for close to fifty before this consistently happens. It seems to be simply subsistuting all sounds with this annoying noise. I quit the game it goes quiet, but music is now affected and DVDs have NO sound. Single GPU works fine (either card, either PCI-E slot), sound card in either PCI slot still causes the problem. I recently got a newer, better sound card but it does the exact same thing. I think it may be either a video card issue, or the motherboard. Is it something to due with the way the video card handles sound? Or the motherboard? HELP!! I really like the improved graphics (on a relative budget) that SLI brings, and don't like being hobbled like this.

I have done a search of this forum, but it was inconclusive.

I need something better than the on-board AC97 (ASUS A7V-600)
or the Soundblaster series.

Granted, the SB LIVE boasts 100 dB S/N ratio, but that's on
playback. I need to do video editing and audio editing, both for a
local church, and to archive some old vinyl and cass recordings.

Well, the on-board AC97 sound is TERRIBLE.

Without breaking the bank, what is the best solution (methinks
an external sound card via USB or SCSI)?

I'm sorry, but a -24 dB noise floor is just ridiculous. I would settle
for -80 dB (or better). But I don't want to spend $200 USD on an
external sound module, either.

So what's the best compromise?

Remember: I am concerned with recording, moreso than
playback, when it comes to the noise floor. If I had a SNR of
80 or better, then I could set noise gating at -60 dB. As it
is, I have a floor of -25 to -35 dB, with the onboard AC97
sound. My old SB LIVE got me maybe -48.

I am open to suggestion.
I am getting sleepy, sleepy, sleeeeeeeeeepy......

The title says it all. I recently started playing Medal of Honor and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and on both games I get a frozen screen with looping audio which forces me to shut the computer down via the power button.

after doing some searching around on the net and trying various solutions, I have determined the next step is to disable on board sound. I know this sounds like a noobish question but, is there any way to get sound out of my computer? is there a BIOS setting that allows me to disable the on board sound but still get sound out my PC? these 2 games rely heavily on being able to hear what is going on,

I have an ABIT IP35 Pro with no secondary sound card.


A:Can I get audio if I turn onboard sound off without a sound card?

No that'd be impossible. if you turn off the onboard sound, how are you gonna get some sound delivered to your speaker or headphone?

you should try disabling the onboard sound and check if it fixes the issue. if it did, also try to uninstall your current audio driver and install the newest one.

looping audio does not always means the onboard sound is faulty. it usually goes on loop because that portion of the soundtrack is already loaded into RAM. therefore it still plays even when the computer froze.

the problem might lies in other thing such as video card or overheating CPU since you indicate it only occurs when you're playing games.

Some sound cards provide a "loop-through" feature so that you can monitor the input signal while listening to the output. The easiest way to know if your sound card his this feature is to plug headphones into the output jack on your sound card and feed the input with an external sound source, such as an MP3 player. If you hear the sound looping through to the output, the card has input monitoring.

If you are familiar with this feature, my question is whether you know how to turn it off. On-board sound cards seem to be the worst offenders. (In case you're wondering, I use computers for podcasting, which requires a mix-minus signal from a mixer. If the loop through is enabled, the mix-minus signal does not work as it should, and there is an echo in the audio.) If I use an external USB sound card, such as a Roland UA-1G, input monitoring is easily disabled.

The function is controlled in hardware, but the hardware is controlled by drivers. Unfortunately, many drivers for on-board audio cards are terrible. Am I overlooking any way to turn off input monitoring using either XP or 7? There are some registry hacks that work on some cards, but it is an extremely time-intensive process to find the tweaks. While one of the best solutions is to install a decent sound card, such as an M-Audio Audiophile 2496, they're $100US each. It would be great to have the benefit of the on-board sound cards, as well.

I'm getting a whining crackling noise out of any audio device i plug into either of my audio jacks. The speakers work fine with other input devices as well, so it's definitely the computer.

Furthermore, it's not a software problem, because it occurs slightly during booting up, and happens in both in vista and in ubuntu off an eval CD.
the severity and volume of the interference increases while performing tasks, so I'm pretty positive it's processor interference. Since my sound is onboard, I thought I could fix it by buying a regular pci card, but it does the same thing, and it does it no matter which jack on which sound card I plug into (microphone, line in, whatever, completely the same sound emitted).

Finally, I want to note that this started when I removed my video card planning to reseat the heat sink (it's been overheating) so I thought I may have bumped somthing, but no amount of jostling or blowing with canned air seems to dull the noise. There's no chance putting the card back in (which is a bit of a chore, microATX form factor LANbox) fixing the sound, is there? Any advice?

A:Solved: audio interference from processor, already tried a new sound card

nevermind, putting my video card back in seems to have fixed it afterall for whatever dumb reason.

Do you have two separate jacks labeled center and subwoofer or a single jack labeled "center/subwoofer?

If it is a single jack, it probably has two outputs, one for the front center audio and the other for the subwoofer audio.

I have an HP pavilion Slimline computer, (running Windows Vista) with a realtec sound card. I am trying to use the digital coax output from the realtec sound card, to connect to my Roland VS2400cd music studio recorder's coax input. The Roland studio coax requires PCM (2 channel) digital input. With the current drivers, the Realtec supported formats are DTS Audio, Dolby Digital, and Microsoft WMA Pro Audio. Because my roland recorder only accepts PCM format, I have set the realtec card options to the needed parameters, I.E. selecting Realtec digital as default, matching sample rate of 44.1K, and setting the format to "Microsoft WMA Pro Audio" (I thought WMA was a PCM format?). I still can not get any sound into my Roland recorder.

My question is: Am I doing something wrong, or are there any drivers that would make the Realtec card produce PCM digital output? And compatable with Vista!

Very frustrated..bought this computer to use in my studio.

A:AMD HDMI output not plugged in,no sound card detected in dxdiag

The AMD HDMI is ONLY for HDMI audio and not for regular PC audio. Unless there is an HDMI cable plugged in, you will get the no cable plugged in notice.

Please post the motherboard manufacturer and model number. Without that I can't say what sound is on the PC's motherboard (for regular PC audio). But, if the PC audio is enabled in the BIOS and is Windows 7 compatible, Windows would install the generic, basic function, HD Audio Driver (Codec) and the PC sound would work. If the sound chip on the motherboard is not Windows 7 compatible (an old Win XP hardware) you will have to install a sound card to have PC audio.

The DX Diag, because the sound is not there, does not help.

I have a Compaq,pen4,computer in 2003. I have this as a sound card: Realtek AC'97 Audio. I dont have any specifications on that sound card so i assume it was state of the art for the year 2003.

I notice the Diamond XtremeSound 5.1/16 bit Sound Card (specifications below)for sale at Staples for $20. Should i consider buying that 2008 Sound card to replace my 2003 sound card? I use my speakers almost exclusively for listening,stream media.

(I have a Magnovox home stereo(2 speakers)hooked up to my computer)

Ok, so here's my problem:

I need to voice chat, but I it doesn't play my voice. As the title sais, the sound output from my speakers goes directly in the input for my microphone. And I don't want that... How do I fix this?

I have Realtek HD audio onboard, if that helps..

Sorry for my bad English,

A:Sound output to Mic input

like your what comes out of your speaker channel is also coming OUT the mic channel?

I have installed Win XP Pro SP2 (had Win 7 installed and couldn't run half my games). Now the games run fine but no sound! I know this is because I'm relying on the on-board sound on the (I have been told by my brother-in-law who used to own the pc!) Realtek motherboard as the soundcard broke 6 months ago (was a Creative Soundblaster 16 or AWE 32 Compatible (WDM)) and was removed.

When I installed Win XP yesterday everything runs fine but no sound. In the Device Manager I have problems with the:

Other Devices -Audio Device on HD Audio Bus (Code 1)PCI Simple Communications Controller (Code 28)Unknown device (Code 28)

Sound, Video & Game Controllers -Creative Soundblaster 16 or AWE 32 Compatible (WDM)(Code 10)

I don't understand why it's even picking up the sound card when it's not plugged in!

Hello everybody,

I hope everybody is doing all right and much better than me.

I wanted to ask something about audio.
How can I make the sound coming from my speakers like they are coming from microphone?
I guess you could say that how can make output coming like input?
I want to add a video entry to a journal, I can add the video, but I want the sound from the video added to the entry too.
I couldn't find a way to do that because it only records the sounds from microphones.
Another question would be how can make a song on my computer recorded as an audio journal?
What are the ways to do that?


A:Showing Output Sound as Input

I don't mind saying I'm confused. Where is the video coming from and where/what is the journal method of recording? Seems to me you could use Windows Live Movie Maker. As far as an audio journal, the Sound Recorder under Accessories should to it. You'll need a microphone plugged in and make sure it's assigned as a recording device.

I recently purchased a refurbished computer from Fry's Electronics. It seemed like a very good deal, so I went ahead and took it (along with others who were taking them).

Now, I finally got my internet up and I began to play Counter-strike. The sound sometimes messes up. I can hear other peoples shots just fine, but when I shot, it is almost silent.

Here is what I got from the Sound tab in dxdiag:
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Solved: Realtek Sound Card. Messed up Sound.

I would suggest firsat of all to remove the sound drivers from device manager and then exit out and reboot the system, Windows will re-install the drivers for the sound. If this is not adequate then get new drivers for the sound card and install.

hi all,
i have a problem hopefully someone is able to help me with. i manually changed the input\output setting in device mgr. for my sound card because it was conflicting with my newly installed modem. Now i cant get any sound no matter what i do. at startup, i get a blue screen that says SBPCI audio device has been routed incorrectly, use automatic settings. When i check device mgr., automatic settings is already checked for the sound card and nothing is conflicting, but still nothing. im running win98se, amdk6-2 333mhz, my soundcard is creative blaster audio pci. can anyon tell me how to get my sound back? thanks in advance

A:i changed input\output range-now no sound

Hello there redruuum, and welcome to TEAM TSG...

Can you remove the modem, and then boot to "Safe Mode Command Prompt" ( I think you press the F8 key when you see the message " Starting Windows 98 ) then run scanreg/restore and restore it to a date before you made the changes ??

If this will let the sound work, move the modem to a different PCI slot, and see if the conflict goes away...

Does anyone know of a plug on the motherboard that could relay 2 channel sound output?

I have a SOUND BLASTER X-FI which has been working properly for about a year since I installed it.
With no warning, I have lost all sound to the device - it neither plays sound or picks it up.
The motherboard sound is still working fine, so its not a huge issue, but it would b e nice to get my sound card back up.

(More recently one of DVD players stopped being detected as well - just adding that in case it's related)

I'm using a machine with an i7 quad core - window 7 64 bitinstalled

The hardware properties says it working properly, yet it fails any of the tests I use.
When I try to launch the applications that came with it (e.g. Creative Start) it says the hardware device associated is not installed - but in device manager it says it is there, which is confusing.

Any thoughts?

A:Solved: Sound Blaster X-FI "working properly" yet no input or output

"Device Manager" is a misleading name as it's really a "Driver Manager" in that it gets all it's info from the driver, and provided it's the correct driver, DM will tell you it's working okay even when the actual hardware has become faulty or even died altogether. So you must not always believe what DM tells you in regard to the actual state of the hardware, specially when other testing utilities tell you otherwise.

My guess is you're X-Fi has bitten the dust, just not in a way that DM is able to sense.
