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!

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.

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

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,
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

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?

I recently installed windows 7 on an old dell dimension 8200 with a Sound Blaster Live! Value card made only for dell

The sound card that was included with my computer came with drivers so I thought everything would go smoothly, but right as I finished installing, I would get a BSOD. And the only way to remove that BSOD was to go into safe mode and uninstall the bad driver.

Before finding the CD I found some tweaked drivers which enabled the sound card, but no sound was coming from my (WORKING) speakers.

A:Audio problems

What is the audio source material? All Windows audio and most music and movies are only in stereo. Stereo audio is front left/right and sub. To get 5.1 sound, you need to have a 5.1 source material such as a DVD movie or game.

To verify the hardware configuration, you can use the speaker configuration tool which output audio to each speaker. If you get audio to each speaker, the hardware is connected and configured correctly.

I was watching youtube videos the other day and noticed that at certain points the audio skips or lags. I was told it may be the sound card, so I replaced it with a spare card I had. When I booted back up I loaded all the drivers for the card. I opened a video on youtube and it was still skipping. After digging some more I found out that it did the same thing with dvd's as well. I noticed that any time the computer memory usage goes over 10% it skips the sound. I then went back and closed out any unnecessary processes and apps, and it still does the skip.

I have a HP Pavillion dv4 laptop with Windows 7 64 bit installed. Lately, I have been having issues with audio on the computer. Sometimes (but no always), when I shut off or restart my computer the audio will not work when i turn it back on. Over the last couple weeks I have been leaving it in sleep mode, and if I had to restart it and the audio stopped working, I would system restore and the problem would be fixed temporarily.

A few hours ago a Windows update was forced onto my computer, and it restarted after the update was applied. As usual, the audio stopped working, so I tried to do a system restore. I tried restoring to 3 different restore points (and I know that the audio was working at each of these three points), however I cannot seem to get audio back on my computer.

When I listen to a cd, a file from e-mail, or a instructional dvd( i.e. like a disc for learning a cell phone.), the voices sound like they're sucking on helium and the background noises are very tinny. If I plug my headphones directly into the cd port it sounds correct. Also, the length of time the song or file is playing is right on.

It is very curious.

Hi all,
 
How are you doing?
 
Ok, so here it goes...
 
A few weeks ago my VLC started causing me problems. Every time I would watch a video, a white film would overlay the video for a few seconds. This went on until someone somehow fixed it. All he did was update the bios drivers & the video drivers. I believe I also uninstalled & reinstalled VLC prior to that which didn't help.
 
I was also getting the audio cutting in & out every few minutes so I couldn't hear the words. If I rewound it, it wouldn't happen in the same spot. I thought it was the USB stick, but after testing other sticks, same problem. I think it was better when we tested it by saving it to the computer, but I can't remember. I do have a USB hub.
 
That problem still hasn't been solved.
 
Now today I decided to call ASUS as I have their motherboard (I'm on a desktop & no it's not their desktop, I didn't even know they made custom desktops until today LOL). Anyway, the guy wanted to know what RAM I had & so after that he had me change the speed of it in the BIOS to 800.
 
He also had me update the audio drivers, but refused to stay on the phone with me & when I restarted, my speakers wouldn't work.
 
I freaked out, called back & their Filipino call center had me take the checkmark off of headset & move it to speakers. That worked, but this update & bios change did NOT solve the VLC issues.
 
Anyway, someone just called me on Skyp... Read more

A:Nothing but audio problems

P.S. there is a noise it makes when it cuts in & I don't know how to describe it.
 
When the person called me on Skype, the skype window didn't pop up twice. It finally did on his 3rd & 4th try.
 
The audio now overall is a lot louder then it was before.
 
When I adjust the volume on the speakers, it makes the crackling noise, not all the time, but it did ealier.
 
I don't have another set of speakers to test it out & they aren't cheap to buy.
 
For some reason my Skype windows have changed color since the changes today. Very very strange.

About a week or so ago, my microphone started buzzing terribly and nobody could hear anything that I was saying. I tried reinstalling the software and a few other things, and all it did was remove any input I had.

I just played around with the 'Test Hardware', and it finally started picking up my microphone. I tried it out, and sure enough my microphone is now working perfectly fine. However, ever since I did this I have absolutely no audio. How do I fix this?

PSU - Seasonic 500Watts
Processor - Intel Q8300 Core 2 Quad (2.50GHz/4M/1333/05A/Socket: 775)
Motherboard - ASUS P5N-E SLI
Graphics Card - VTX3D Radeon HD5450 1GB PCIe DVI HDMI 2GB
Hard Drive 1 - 500GB Western Digital Caviar Blue
Hard Drive 2 - 3TB Western Digital

Optical Drive - Sony AD-7240S-0B 24x Internal DVDRWRAM SATA Black Bare
RAM - Kingston 2 x 2GB PC2-5300 DDR 667 240Pin; 2 x 2GB Unbranded
 
When I play an audio or video file with VLC Player or Windows Media Player or stream a video online, the files play slowly, crackle or cut out every few seconds.
 
Please can someone suggest how I can stop this from happening?
 
Thanks,
Joe

A:Audio Problems

 Have you checked to be sure you have the right audio drivers?  If you're using anything other that what came from Asus, that could be the problem.  Another thing you could always do would be to buy an inexpensive audio card and disable the integrated audio on the mobo.
 
Good luck.

I have onboard C-Media CMI988OL 7.1 audio. I'm not really sure if my problem is with this, but what is going on is that I have tv tuner card and when I go in the set up to set up the sound it does not give me the option of selecting the line in as the audio source, because I currently have a cable going from audio out on the tv card to line in on the onboard audio. When I plug in the cord to the onboard audio I get a pop-up on my computer that says that something was plugged in and shows me a picture of the jacks with options to select what that current jack is being used as. I select line in on the correct jack. My tv tuner is a EasyTV MPEG Philips SAA713XHL. I have read through the book on this, and my motherboard book for any information about the onboard audio and I have found nothing. I should also mention that I just got a new computer, and last week I had this same tv card in my old computer and it worked just fine. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks much
 

A:Audio problems

try instead to use the internal audio input. it should be 4 pins coming out of the tv card (refer to its manual) then connect it to the cd in or whatever its called on the motherboard (refer to its manual again.. ) on the mobo it is usualy connected to a cd/dvd drive and has 4 pins.. sometimes with a white plug housing or just 4 pins sticking up in a row..





when I go in the set up to set up the sound it does not give me the option of selecting the line in as the audio sourceClick to expand...

can you go into a little more detail? as in from the program or ??
generaly the line in, sound should already go through the pc.. just play something from the tv card, you see what i mean

If music, it showes the music in the player artis and tracks and it's playing you see the blue band moving, pause/stop/jump tracks but no sound come out to my music centre or to head phones.
Play the inbuild music in windows this play in both music centre and headphones.
After you press eject and put the dick back in or put another disk in, the drive briefly show the first dis details then it disappears from my computer and from DM? The disk keeps spinning,(I have the case top of and see the disk) sometimes if you eject it will eject, other times nothing happens it keeps spinning until you reboot.

Swap back to XP drive and work perfect.

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?

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

Hi, I'm having problems with my sound and I have no idea what to do. My itunes windows media player, and just about any sound in general when played through my speakers will skip, especially when opening any new program, or just tabbing out.
Two weeks ago this problem was non-existent. When I play sound through my laptops sound output or my cambridge soundworks speakers the sound skip a ton at times (especially when opening new programs ect), however when played through my headset this is not the case. My computer is normally extremely fast, and this problem is way out of the ordinary.

Ive run adaware, spy sweeper, spybot serach and destroy, mcafee security, and nothing is found. I have also defragged. The problem seemed to start after a car ride where I used my laptop.

what ever should I do
