Audio problems on HP HDX-18

Q: Audio problems on HP HDX-18

Audio is sometimes distorted, and checking it out, the stacsv64.exe (IDT PC Audio Service) is attempting to start, uses something like 500 MB of RAM, and 60-70% CPU. On other occasions, audiodg.exe, the Windows device graphi isolation task, is running at 50% CPU, 300 MB RAM. This latter program apparently configures audio jacks on the laptop.Nicholas Bedworth, CTO

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Audio problems on HP HDX-18

Nicholas,I am pasting in a msg I just left on the issue. The fix is take the stacsv64.exe and go to HP support and do a search, putting in your complete model name, then finding the driver. It works.stacsv64.exe on HP Pavilion dv7-1247cl laptop continous 40-50% CPU usage + other things
After successfully installing Win7x86 on a desktop; clean install in about an hour, I installed an in place upgrade Win7x64 on the above mentioned system in about 10 hours or less. I did not have to do anything but look at it once in a while.
However, things such as the obove issue have haunted me since the initial reboot, upon which I have found several re-installs to do; particularly open source apps as Mozilla Thunderbird, Firefox.
The above problem with stacsv64.exe was quickly resolved by going to going to HP and downloading the version of stacsv64.exe which was probably the same as when I purchased the HP in late Mar 2009.
As soon as I did the reboot on the stacsv64.exe issue, I could not connect to the local net or the Internet. Upon which I had to do a rollback of the Realtek 8102/8103 PCI E net adapter. It quirky version had worked on & off during the day, but was probably the one that the Win7RC1 install did, which had been tried to have been pushed upon the system for multitudes of Windows Updates since the day I first bought the system. I finally had told Update to forget it forever.
I perhaps should have done an install which I could have done, which was a clean install on the laptop thru the eSata connection with an eSata drive in an enclosure, HOWEVER, I am glad to get such good performance out of Win 7 as I am on the laptop, which has Vista Home Premium, which is a total dog (I do not want any dogs to take offense, but Vista IS the pits). Windows 7 is quickly renewing my confidence the MS can do some things right!

Hello

I am new to this forum. I have searched for related problems here but did not find anything relevant, my apologies if this is a duplicate. What follows is a copy of a message sent to VIA (in Taiwan apparently):

I seem to be having some issues with your VIA High Definition Audo drivers in an Asus K60IJ-series laptop (purchased in 2010). The driver version is 6.0.1.7333 dated 09/07/2009. It works fine on its own but when I try to add an external audio device to the system, I run into problems:

- I was not able to make a Toshiba Bluetooth Stack (driving a Kensington K33902 dongle) produce any audio: Windows will not let me set the bluetooth-connected external audio device (Logitech Bluetooth Audio Adapter, provides no Win7 drivers) as a default device while you drivers are installed. If I remove your drivers and allow Windows to install its default drivers instead, I can now choose the Bluetooth device as default but still get no audio out of it, nor out of your VIA audio chipset either (it seems the generic Windows drivers are not compatible with your chipset).

- Am having similar problems with a Creative Digital HS-1200 bluetooth headset: the headset is automatically set as default when the Bluetooth interface is plugged into USB port, but the default can't be changed, and Windows Media Player complains that there are no audio drivers for it (it appears OK under Device Manager)... YouTube continues to play through the VIA despite. The headset works fine on a... Read more

A:Laptop audio problems possibly involving built in VIA High Def Audio

Hello sybernut mate this is the site where you need to go to get drivers the Windows feature is not something I am a fan of and find it is far better to get the drivers straight form the machine's manufacturers site or the device in side the machine site.
http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=K60IJ&os=17 - in the manual section it tells you how to set up Blu tooth stuff. The drivers are all there - I am linking to the Asus K60IJ notebook form your specs.

Now if you want in depth details of the components see this
Using HW Info
PART A:
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic.
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
PART B:
Open each small square with + in it on the section the components are in and then click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that particular device. See pic for example.
Use Part B: (see pic for an example - I have shown you my RAM you need to click on one of the +'s until you find the Blu tooth info probably Network)

Hi,

Got a niggling problem with installing a driver for my onboard sound. I recently bought a motherboard bundle (Nforce 7050M-M) and I have got everything working fine but I just cannot install the driver for this. I'm currently using OS XP SP3.

It seems like I have tried every everthing that i've seen posted on a similar problem. I have all the latest drivers for windows, motherboard & Bios.

When I first had the problem it was a code 39 error on the device manager, now its a code 1 error (i'm can't rembmer at what point this changed as i've tried so many things).

Does anyone have solution for this problem?

Please help, thanks.

For the keyboard, if you are in the UK, get to 'Control Panel', 'Regional & Language', 'Keyboards and Languages'.Select 'Change keyboards' then scroll down and look for 'English - UK'.You may have to change anything else in that window which is 'US' and set it to 'UK'.

Hi everyone,
I seem to have ran into some audio issues recently that my sound disappeared after extensive use of my laptop.
I tried fixing these issues, but I only made it worse I'm afraid... So i tried uninstalling my audio drivers but they didn't automatically reinstall like one of the forums said they would.

So now I have a laptop with no sound at all basically, and I've tried doing a system restore, but it seems to not be able to do it, it boots up normally again and says it wasn't successful at completing it.

So this is how my device manager looks like right now.

Could anyone with your expertise guide me through this problem?

Hi,
Im at my wits end now. As the title says really im having probs with cds im making from mp3s skipping randomly. it started about 2months ago, my dvdrw had been noisy for sometime and started to skip audio cds i made (hadnt changed cdr brand been using the same brand for donkeys) so i bought myself a new drive (phillips dvdr1628) thinking my existing samsuny had just packed in. Unfortunately this failed to remedy the problem, i then thought maybe this was just a coincidence that the new dvdrw didnt like my choice of cdr so i bought a different brand of disks...still no joy. next i formatted my system thinking maybe there was still traces of nero 7 on it (which skips like anything anyway) and installed trusty nero 6 reloaded which ive used for donkeys. however still skipping cds. any suggestions on how to solve this great mystery? lol

any suggestions for alternate software?

Then I go to the hardware tab and I see my audio device is "Realtek AC'97 Audio"

Also using the computer mic jack, variably with the ATI's Line in setting in the master audio controls.

Hi,

When streaming videos (all online videos/players) I sometimes lose the sound. The sound -disappears when I try to skip ahead in the video and it needs to buffer again. (And it doesn't happen every time i skip ahead, but probably 50% of the time)

Hello all,

I am not familiar with the preferred format for posting problems, so I apologize in advance for any inconveniences I may bring. I know next to nothing in regards to hardware troubleshooting by the way.

I had an issue today involving sound. 5/1/15 in the AM, I had used my computer and it functioned as it normally would, and I shut it down as normal. In the PM, my computer would turn on but my graphics card had issues running. I had a source I contacted over the phone to help me figure out what to do, and jumping the motherboard and disconnecting and reconnecting the graphics card before and after, respectively, and tampering with the BIOS seemed to do the trick.

Now my Logitech speakers will not play any audio I tried, including the Windows notification sounds. I looked at my Audio Devices page, (view Sound.jpg attachment) and it states that my speakers are not plugged in. I have Realtek, and usually when I plug in a device, a pop-up notification prompt requests what device was plugged in, although there is no response when I plug in or remove the back panel plugs, and the front panel headphone/microphone jacks. Driver updates and rollbacks did not do the trick.

From what I read, there is a problem where audio is disabled in the BIOS, but I do not see where to enable/disable peripherals? I think it is safe to rule out driver issues, and I think the problem is hardware-based, although I am not certain.

On a separate note, I have encountered a strange new problem... Read more

My audio card is a creative audigy 2 Zs.

Any help would be great

Thanks!

This usually is due to a bad connection.

All of a sudden every sound file I play on my computer is choppy. This happened to me once before, I reinstalled Windows and everything's been working fine since. But just today it started happening again.

I installed only a couple of programs in the time between when the system was working fine and now. What happened was that I found an ebook in a format called DAISY, so I downloaded a couple of applications to try and read it.

One of the programs was called AMIS : AMIS: DAISY 2.02 & DAISY 3 Playback Software | DAISY Consortium

The other was called Pipeline GUI: Pipeline GUI | DAISY Consortium

I've uninstalled both of these programs, but I'm still getting the problem. I tried restoring to a system restore point of a couple of days ago, but I got a message saying that it couldn't be done because there haven't been any changes in the intervening time.

I suspect the problem stems from the AMIS program, because it is set up to actually read the DAISY ebooks out loud, and I think my problems last time may have possibly originated with a text to speech program that I installed as well. I'm guessing there's some common algorithms used by both programs that have messed up the sound on my computer.

I'm not sure what to do about it though. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Delete any leftover AMIS files C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\AMIS and restart the computer.
Try posting in their forum you will have more luck there then in this general Microsoft forum.

I can use speakers but whenever i try to use headphones they dont work.This  starterd happening when i installed windows 10. Serie no.MXX33507H3Product no.H5P88AA#ABA

@HATHAT?, welcome to the forum. You should go into the Control Panel / Sound and check to assure that your headphones are set to Default.  This is a very common problem with Win 10 upgrades.  Also, you should run Windows and HP Updates to assure that your software and drivers are up to date. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

I loose audio when I stop the audio and go to another audio application.  I use a Samsung C27F591 monitor with built in speakers.  I can get the sound back only if I unplug the power to the monitor and then plug it back in.  I have experienced this problem using an audio cord and using HDMI only and using both at the same time.   Any thoughts on what I need to do to fix this problem?

My computer never had audio problems before, but when I recently rebooted my computer's XP operating system, my sound system stopped working. I have already checked the computer to see if whether or not the speakers are connected properly and if the volume is turned on and everything's fine. However, when I do look at the system information there is a yellow exclamation balloon beside the multimedia audio controller. Therefore, I'm wondering if my problem is related to that. Currently my computer does not even recognize that the speakers are connected and is making beeping noises. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Yes it is related to that.

You need to reinstall your soundcard drivers.

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Sounds like you need to install the sound drivers.

Please give us the details of your computer, including whether it`s an oem build such as Dell/Gateway/HP etc.

Hi, I'm having a problem with the audio on my computer. I have a windows 7 acer laptop and until recently I have been using my speaker to listen to pretty much everything on my laptop. Today, the sound completely went out and I can't hear anything from the speaker unless I put my ear to it. The speaker works perfectly with my phone but not my laptop. I also can't hear anything from headphones either, I can only get some sort of audio from the laptop's speakers. Please help, I would like to go back to using my speaker and headphones.

P.S. The computer claims to have all drivers updated.

Hello all,
When I play a DVD in Windows Media Player 9 (XP), the video is fine but the audio is having problems. The Soundtrack (songs, theme music) is way too loud, but the peoples voices are barely heard. On the other hand, when I play animated films, the characters voices are echoing.

However, when I play the DVD on RealPlayer, an error message shows up:
"The DVD cannot be played. Key exchange for copy protection failed"

How can I solve this problem???? Help me everyone!

They don't list anything for XP...Go into device manager get the name/model of the audio driver, then you can go to www.driverguide.com, and download the driver from there. This is free to use but you have to register it..

I just bought a new (rebuilt) pc with a DVD RW/R drive. I can play audio cd's on it, but when I try to play a DVD on it, it comes up with an error message that says either the audio is not hooked up (obviously it is as I can hear the cd's playing) or that the audio driver is not installed. According to diagnostics, the driver for that dvd player IS installed and working. The technician that works for the store where I bought it, said he could help me fix it over the phone, but I would have to be sitting at the computer when I called him. I do not have long distance and he is long distance. But his comment that he could guide me through fixing it over the phone tells me it involves a software setting. I was hoping someone here might know what I should do and help me avoid purchasing a calling card.

For any help, thank you in advance.

Here is my issue, i have recently bought a new home theater system, RCA 720 Watt Home Theater in a Box, and i figured out one way to get it to connect to my computer is with an optical fiber cable. So i connected the back of the computer with my receiver, set it up all correctly and then i went to test it with the MSI Realtek HD Audio Manager, set it to 6ch speaker but the problem was that only the two front speakers responded. I tested each speaker with the test button and they were responding, but when i tested it with the computer it didn't. I'm not sure whats wrong with it, it should be working right?

I am running Windows XP home and have recently found problems with the audio on my PC. Windows eroor messages and the like do make a sound, so the speakers ARE working, but when I try to use ANY OTHER program, no sound actually plays; i.e. Flash movies, Quicktime Movies, Windows Media Player to play audio. There is no longer a speaker icon in my system tray, and when I go to the comtrol panel to access Sound and Audio devices , it shows as no device connected, but as i said, error messages and the like still sound through the speakers. I am not even able to access my device manager either, I get this message, "Windows cannot access the specified path, device or file.You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.". Only one user account is associated with my PC, so I am assuming permissions are not the problem.
I would really, really appreciate any insight you may be able to offer

Firstly..... I upgraded from windows 7 to 10 and found out that the sound quality of my system significantly dropped and is quite low at its highest volume. The headphone ports are no more working. I've updated all drivers and the beatsaudio installed. Could there be another issue that I don't know of?.. Secondly....  The beatsaudio button on the right is stiff, while the volume knob doesn't control the volume. I have a feeling its damaged. how can it be fixed? Do I get a new knob to fix? Thanks.

I think my audio driver is messed up. When I use some prgrams, the audio does not work. WHen I use others, the adio is fine. The audio symbol also has disappeared from the taskbar even though the option is checked off in the "sounds and audio devices properties" menu in the control panel.

I think the sound card is a VIA AC'97 Enhanced Audio Controller i think.

n e help?
