Computer Sound and USB out to lunch

Q: Computer Sound and USB out to lunch

My Son won a laptop for getting good grades in school, its a Dell Inspiron 2200 Intel Celeron with Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 2 Service Pack 2 installed on it. The processor is 1.50 GHz and he has 248MB of RAM.

Problem 1, is that something happened to the laptop and now nothing can be played, music wise, on the laptop because it says there is no device installed. Now I figured I could just use the recovery disk on it when I came up to visit but since he won it through his school all he got was the laptop and the packet with information in it and he didnt get any disks with it.

Problem 2, is that I bought my son a Logitech mouse for his laptop and ran the disk on the computer and then plaugged the mouse into it but the cursor will not move.

So basically that the two problems I have and was wondering if anybody can assist me so I can get my sons confuser straightened out.

Preferred Solution: Computer Sound and USB out to lunch

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.)

So basically I tried this with many games. For example when I ran Gmod and when the game moves me to the text menu the computer restarts. I did look into it online and there is something wrong with my charger. I bought a charger which is not Dell Brand( My Computers Brand) and I guess it doesn't supply the power it needs. However, when I am playing the game without the charger plugged in it works fine.

I would like to know if there is anyway to change some settings so I can fool my computer, so I can play the games with my charger on.

I don't want to buy a new charger because I might get a new computer this Christmas.

A:Computer restarting every time I lunch a game.

Try changing your power settings to save more energy while playing a game. Your laptop is probably overheating while the charger is plugged in because it freely uses more power. Make sure the fan vent is clear of dust.

If that doesn't help, the other likely problem is that your charger might not be a sufficient wattage. Newer games require chargers that are above 100w. If your charger is <100w, this could be the problem.

Is there any way to get the Windows 8 and Hotmail calendars to keep appointments and not shift them around when my computer changes its time zone?

I always eat lunch at 1 PM, it doesn't change when I fly to Ireland from Germany.
And when I make an appointment with someone in Israel at 6 PM in a week's time, I really do not want to calculate what the difference is to my current time zone so as to avoid having dinner at 4 PM or 8 PM depending on wether I was east or west of Jerusalem at the time of making the appointment.
Basically I want the calendar to work like a paper calendar. If I tell that I will do X at time Y, I want X to remain set for Y, not Y+Z with Z being the difference in hours between the two time zones, the one I will be in and the one I am in when making the appointment.
What should I do?

A:Lunch doesn't have a time zone. Neither have I.

Hi there
I tend to use a phone for appointments - but I think on a computer there is some software (paid) to do this
Godot & Co

I haven't tried this so I don't know if it's any good - the phone though does it all automatically.

I have a Linksys 10/100 PCI card thats been purring like a kitten in my machine for months.

After changing a few BIOS settings my WIN98 setup went south and had trouble finding files and associations?! This wasn't a biggie because I was about to reinstall everything anyway.

So I reinstall everything, then follow the procedure I've used several times to reinstall my Linksys card. I load the correct drivers, but this time a message pops up in the System Properties of my LNE100TX Ethernet card it says:

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>This device is not working properly because windows cannot load the file(odiload.vxd)that loads the drivers for this device(code 8)<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

I managed to find a copy of odiload.vxd on the net and put it in the Windows/System directory, but the same message pops up.(The file might be a bit old, not sure if this effects things or not).

Any help would be great, this ones got me completely foxed. Especially since the cards installed perfectly many times.

We are all familiar with the concept ?there is no such thing as a free lunch?. There is always an agenda that involves us giving information up or doing something to earn the lunch.

Recently Kaspersky Lab announced their adding of a free antivirus to their portfolio, making them a member of the growing list of vendors that give away their security software, apparently for free.

We all know that there is no such thing as a free lunch, or security product, so what?s the catch?

I?ve taught my son that when you download an app that?s ?free? you need to understand how the company makes money ? maybe advertising, cross? and up?selling, in?app purchases ? and if you can?t see how then you are probably what they make money from. Of course, it may be by all the methods mentioned, the key is to understand what you are trading to use a free product.

There are numerous ways free products can potentially make money and, like me, you may have experienced ?some (or all)? of the examples below at some stage. All these methods are examples in use by free security products being offered for download at the time of writing.

A:What’s the cost of a free lunch?

There is nothing for free. Someone or somehow it's getting paid. Now the question is are you directly paying for it or the company benefits in some other way that doesn't really affect you.

The only problem is that the usual things that come to mind don't seem to apply here...

I have done the following:

- made the usual adjustments in the Power Settings
- have disabled items in Task Scheduling that start when idle
- have scanned the Event list, searched log files, etc.
- disabled Search related
- have sat and watched Task manager processes
- disabled screen savers
- performed all updates to windows and drivers
- used system restore to backup to a known working condition

What happens is that if I work on this computer all day, there are no problems. However, if I go away from the computer for approximately 20 minutes or so, when I return I have a computer that will allow me to move the cursor around, etc., but as soon as I click the desktop background, right click the taskbar, etc. we're done. The cursor spins, the mouse still moves, but the computer is completely unresponsive and the only recourse is to reboot...

The Event list always includes an item that says the following (different time/date):

The previous system shutdown at 7:11:24 PM on 3/11/2009 was unexpected.

even though the system still appears to be running. With regard to the previous shutdown, I've not been able to determine exactly what caused or invoked it, though it sure sounds like standby - even though it didn't actually standby...

I'd have contacted HP, but I know they just have you reinstall the OS and that's something I'm not interested in doing ever... Read more

Hello ozasaurus, and Welcome to Seven Forums.

I see you asked the same question before and never got a reply.

I think that's because nobody that has read your question knows the answer, not that you are being ignored.

It sounds like this is for a Business/Corporate environment.
If so, is there an IT Department, Administrator(s), 24x7 Email Server(s), ... ?

How can this even happen?

I downloaded from zip files 16 new albums--all by the same artist (an audio series)--named those 16 albums as I wished, divided them into 4 folders (4 albums in each) and named those folders as I wished. All in my MY Music folder. Then I went to lunch.

I came back, the folders were no longer there. After I did a search, I found them in a new general folder named by the computer, the 4 main folders were gone and all the names on the 16 album folders were changed.

The important fact on this is that none of the music had been played by any player. Why this is important is that not only these 16 new albums but also 12 other unplayed albums (divided into 3 folders of 4 albums each) were also all moved/name changed. I had had those albums on my computer for weeks and they happily stayed put.

All changes were made to some internal name of the files--that is to say, the main folder to which they were all dumped (with no more 4 to a folder delineation) was some name from the original files.

It would certainly seem I either got the weirdest of bugs or I hit some command that said "take all my unplayed music and make it the downloaded name instead of the name I gave it and put it all in 1 folder."

This also happened to me one other time with itunes. But there, i ripped some cds, put them in folders as I wished, and each time I played something the name was automatically changed and it was put in a new folder; same thing, some original name fro... Read more

I need a formula that will keep track of hours worked (I can do that part of the formula) AND subtract 30 minutes for lunch if the employee works 5 hours or more.

Ex. Start time 7:00 (A1)
Quit time 15:30 (A2)
Total Hours 8:30 (Clocked In)

I tried A2-A1 and got the total hours but I need to have Excel automatically subtract :30 for lunch and I can't figure out how to do that.
Someone on another forum suggested =IF((A2-A1)>5,A2-A1-0.5,A2-A1) but it didn't subtract the lunch break.
Thanks for your help in advance.

oweral situation: PC has 4 months. i had no problems while this time. 3 days ago i've returned from a 3 week holiday. there is posibility that during this time my PC has been used by rest of my family but i'cant say that for sure.

problem: PC starts fine, but after opening too many programs (winamp, opera, and for example two additional) or playing games for some time strange thing happens.

i'm not able to lunch anything from start-up tab, nor run new windows explorer window, nor close programs (in fact i can close them but the last visible windows stays on desktop). another thing is that desktop freezes so i'm not able to refresh it, nor start anything from desktop shortcuts nor close windows properly (the only thing is to press the power button which causes closing windows properly). apart from that hot keys from my keybord worls perfectly so i can lunch winamp from a hotkey but not from a shortcut.

So i returned to my work computer after lunch and the resolution had been changed to 800x600, very odd.
Now i have spent 2 hours trying to get back my resolution to the 1680x1050 that is was before but i still can not choose anything higher then 1600x1200 under Screen Resolution settings. The one with the correct ratio i can choose is 1280x960 and i'd like to bigger one back.

I have updated the driver for my graphics card (ATI Radeon 3000 Graphics accoridng to Device Manager). I have updated the driver for the Monitor (HP LE2201w), but the monitor still shows up as Generic Non-PnP Monitor under Device Manager and now i am out of ideas... I really have no idea what the hell happened when i was gone.
(And yes, the computer was locked so it wasn't someone else changing something)

Uninstalling the driver for the Generic device does nothing, it pops back up again after installing the correct display driver, or after a restart. It's like the display driver i downloaded from HP is not being installed, no idea why.

I thought i'd post this and the boot into the bios and prod around see if i can find something, because at the moment i've lost all hope...

A:Resolution got changed over lunch, cannot revert back to prev. setting

I don't think monitors require drivers. I know you said you uninstalled the driver for the 'Generic Device', but have you tried your graphics driver? It could either be the driver or a third party software messing with the setup.

I'm curious, run a DXDiag by typing into Start Menu Search or typing DXDIAG in Run Command. Check the Display tab for any errors.

Hello! I have a small issue. Basically, I have a Compaq desktop for about five years now. I've never had a problem with my computer before until my speakers stopped working. My computer has been soundless for two months until today when i finally purchased some speakers. I followed the instructions on how to set it up to a tee. I turned on the subwoofer and find that I still cannot hear anything. I restarted and turn off my computer twice and reconnect the sound system twice and still no sound. I just don't know what to do at this point. I'm hoping I'm missing something small and was hoping you could help me figure it out.

Dell latitude D520.  Running XP. 
The sound used to work but now the Control Panel shows no audio device.  I downloaded and installed the sound driver from the Dell site and it worked (for a few minutes) until I rebooted the computer.  Now it shows no audio device again and it won't allow me to reinstall the driver.  
I don't know if this is a Spyware/Malware problem, but I've run Malwarebytes and SuperANTISpyware but they only found cookies to delete.
Please advise.  

A:No sound - computer keeps deleting sound driver

I'm guessing that the latest drivers may not be XP compatible. You might want to do a control panel delete of the new driver and reboot. That should reinstall the default driver which may work better with your OS. The other option is to updata /upgrade your OS to at least W7.
As XP gets older, with no support, the hazards of running it increase.

This is about sound issues from the computer as in cant get sound from the comptuer.
Went to computer properties then multi media controller has yellow question mark next to it so tried to update driver it goes to the wizard but it will not find any drivers for it without a cd which dont have.
Tried roll back drivers says no drivers are backed up on file.
Went to sound audio video game controllers audio codecs says all the codecs are working for this computer.
Control panel sound audio says no sound device is connected.
Its also a problem because cannot access volume control either as media controller are not installed.
Thought it might be a motherboard issue so went to download to everest and got the chipset drivers for it.
That was simple enough but when went to foxconn and installed audio drivers for the motherboard because think it runs through the motherboard foxconn P4M800P7M8 from foxconn site.
The sound card is realtek ALC655 AC 97 enhanced audio controller.
Again got these drivers from foxxconn and exactly same issues.
Extracted the files easily enough from wizard but when go to exe run folder the run it says cannot find setupfilex.dll
Then go to gxdver it dont do anything.
Go to exe icon run and logger then it goes cannot run please find the setup exe file from the directory.
In the folders cannot seem to find anything that will install the actual drivers without a conflicting issue somewhere.
So everytime download this compressed driver folders for the drivers... Read more

when i look at the volume icon on my computer it has a red 'x' on it. When I click it it starts troubleshooting then says one or more audio devices are not running. I right-click it to go into playback devices, it ask if I would like to enable audio service i clicked yes.After it opens the properties but it says there are no audio devices installed. So i went on the internet to search for solution and i got answers to start the audio services on the computer. I started all the required services except windows audio endpoint builder because when I tried to start it it say error 126: specified module could not be found. Can you please help with this thank you.

I just started to have problems on my system where it outputs no sound. I have do some troubleshooting and I still can't figure it out. Note: mic doesn't pickup sound either. I have:

checked power source to speakers
checked it was plugged into the correct speaker port
reinstalled and updated drivers
the device manager shows the on-board sound card
speakers work on other computers
in the playback menu, it shows that music is playing and speaker are the default
i plugged in USB headset and that works without a problem
I restarted computer

I am not sure if I am missing anything. I hope someone else has some sort of idea or knows if I can test if it is a hardware problem.

Sounds like a hardware fault. If it's a desktop computer, try using the other ports (ie: front panel or back panel).

Please describe the sound as best as you can. Is it grinding, ticking, etc?

I don't really know what a sound card does.. but I have a Dell 2400 and generic speakers that comes with it.. its the one you plug in and has a volume knob to it.. looks loud.. I don't think it's the speakers.. I hear everything clearly when i first got it.. now the volume is so low... I can hear it ok if i put the speakers up to my ear..
Is it the sound card? Do all sound cards fit all computers? Or should i just buy a Soup Up Speaker system with an amp for my computer? Yes I made sure The volume is turned up and on the Windows Media player also... thanks!

A:The sound is so low on my Computer do i need a new sound card?

Try using headphones and see what the volume is like on that. I could just be the speakers.

I posted this in other tech support forums, nobody seems to be able to help me there. Decided to try out this forum.
All of the info is here: http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/computer-randomly-shut-off-now-sound-doesnt-work-1028785.html#post6563153
To sum it up, my laptop randomly shut off one day (as if the battery was removed) and the sound stopped working when I started it back up. Someone said it overheated. The fan was faulty (worked... kinda), so I thought that might have been true, got it replaced. Computer shut off again in the same way about a week and a half or so later, but was only warm to the touch -- it's been much warmer before without shutting off.
Anyways since it shut off the first time, the sound stopped working, and the drivers for it have had yellow flags and the following message: "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"
Any attempt to delete and re-install the drivers has been unsuccessful so far.
Any help in solving this issue would be greatly appreciated!

A:Computer Randomly Shut Off, Now Computer Can't Bleep (Sound Doesn't Work)

Faulty fan...shutoffs from overheating...my personal opinion is that the system could have resulted in motherboard damage.
What did the person who replaced the fan...have to say about all this, subsequent to fan replacement?

I am having some problems with a computer at work. I am not the main user of this computer, but need it to be working. Initial symptoms were that Adobe Audition would not play nor record audio. This user isn't the most computer literate person so when strange problems crop up we reboot and if it's good we typically ignore it. It worked after a reboot. About an hour later it happened again. It was closing time so he just shut down the computer and said it was fine for me to look at it in the morning. In the morning our outsourced IT people took a look at it and said it had 3 trojans and remnants of some viruses. I do not know which trojans or viruses they found.

Later that day the same problem happened. Adobe Audition 1.5 wouldn't play audio the play and record buttons were actually greyed out. I took a look at Adobe Audition 3.0 and it had the same problem. I went to YouTube and no audio, though it looked to be playing. I took a look at the control panel and the sound settings said "No device configured". I took a look at the Device manager and the card and on board showed up there. We were using both the onboard RealTek HD audio and a Audigy 2 ZS card. A while back (6months or more) the Audigy card was giving us problems so we bypassed it and just used the onboard.

The IT tech uninstalled the drivers and then reinstalled them. That got Audition 3.0 to work constantly. We have not had a problem with Audition 3.0 since Thursday. Still we had the problem... Read more

I find that it's rather paradoxical that an iPad has a sound system that is very much louder than that of a personal computer.
What with the latter's CPU being many times the size of the iPad.
Why is this so and is there any way to improve the volume of the PC so that it can match that of the iPad?
I am using Windows 10 64bit.
Thank you.

A:Personal Computer Sound System vs iPad Sound System

You're asking a very vague question. Each PC is completely different, so do you have a desktop or a laptop? Desktops normally have no speakers or a cheap one for system beeps. You can always had any type of external speakers. Laptops have built-in speakers, which can either be nice or awful. Any laptop I've ever used would trounce an iPad in volume and clarity, too. If you are using a tablet or something like a Surface, again the speakers can range from good to bad. The Surface devices have very nice speakers and would also trounce iPads.

We need much more information before we can try to give any kind of answer. Your profile says Desktop, so I am guessing you may be using one without any type of speakers plugged in?

Press Windows Key + R, type services.msc, press OK.

A window will pop up with a list of services. Scroll down to Windows Audio. Right-click and click on Properties.

Make sure that "Startup type" is set to Automatic. Also, make sure that under "Service status," Start is selected.

Post back if this resolves the "no active mixer" issue.
