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

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, about 2 days ago I turned on my pc and many weird things started happening...

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,
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?

Hello all,

I recently had a bad prgram installation (Roxio Media Manager) which caused my computer to freeze right after starting up. After many hours of work I was able to uninstall the program, problem is I have a bad sound issue:

I have no sound! Windows Media player reports I have a problem with my sound device. I look in the control panel and it tells me I have no audio device detected.
I looked in the device manager and all my sound drivers are working properly with no conflicts.

I reinstall my sound drivers from MSI (and later RealTech) and I get the same problem..no sound.

Heres where it gets crazy: Some of my start up programs still make their start up sounds! Skype for instance makes the usual start up sounds. The call and hang up buttons produce sounds. When I go into my MSI sound manager program I can test out all the 3d sound effects with no problems! Why is it that the rest of the programs are non responsive? And why is it that the control panel and the device manager are telling me conflicting stories?

Here are my specs:

Windows XP Home
K8N Neo4 Platinum (PCB 1.0) Motherboard
AMD Athlon XP 2.4 Ghz
7.1 channel audio codec RealTek ALC850.

Also: I went into the BIOS and the onboard sound is on auto. The only other option I think was Disable

Here is the url for my motherboard:
msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=1&cat2_no=&cat3_no=&prod_no=165

Thank you all in advance

I have a Gateway computer with Windows 7 ultimate. After hooking up my HDMI cable from my pc to the tv and then hooking up my cable from the speaker outlet to the bck of my tv, I can't get the sound through the tv. When I use the remote to raise the volume, it won't go up.
 

A:audio problems

You have conflicting information. You state "no audio" and also that the volume "won't go up". Not being able to raise the volume, would indicate that you have audio but can't control the volume.

Some TV's do not pass HDMI audio. Also, if you are connecting external speakers directly to your TV, the TV a) has to support external speakers and b) you have to configure the TV to use the external speakers. By default, the TV is using the internal speaker(s).

I feel like I am running out of ideas on this one...
My computer seems to not like recognizing my integrated audio driver at all. The problem has been going on for a decent amount of time now, but occasionally it would recognize it (for no apparent reason) and I would just leave my computer running so I wouldn't have to worry about it. Well, I had to restart eventually, so now the problem has returned and nothing I do seems to help.

These are the steps I have taken so far:
1. Re-installed given driver disk with computer
2. Installed Realtek AC '97 driver (the one that the computer won't recognize, checked twice by going to computer website and motherboard website after installing Belarc Advisor to check it.)

I have checked multiple times to make sure I am installing the right driver, so I am quite confident of that, but no matter what I do it's not seeming to get through. The installations are working from what I can tell as I have a Realtek AC '97 folder installed now with files in it, but it will not recognize the driver no matter what I do.

Any thoughts?

A:Audio Problems

Hi Myxomatosis and welcome to TSF

Do you have any yellow or red marks next to the Realtek AC '97 driver in the Device Manager? That's usually a sigh that XP don't like the drivers. I have Realtek on my machine and will be glad to compare settings if it will help you. Mine is under 'sound, video, and game controllers' and there are no conflicts and the drivers work (they allways list several, and I really don't know which one is really active, I probably need to ask one of the really smart guys on this forum). Anyway, I can list them all for you if you think it will help.

I know this isn't much help at present, but at least I have one that is working and will exchange any data that you might like.

I'm having audio issues. My audio is garbeled/pixeled/slow/distorted whether it's the opening windows chime or playing audio with a media player (iTunes, WMP, etc...). What is interesting is that when I go to the Driect X Diagnostics tools section and run tests on the audio...it sounds fine. The issue seems to happen more when other processes are running/opening. For example, when booting up OR if I'm playing audio it sounds bad but if I open another program it sounds really really bad while the program is opening up.For the last two weeks I've been on the "Hijack This Logs and Analysis" forum and have ruled out malware/spyware/virus as the problem.

Compaq Presario F700 Notebook
So - I had been having problems with my audio-- it was shutting off and I'd have to restart in order to get it back. It happened when I was hooking up my computer to my tv. In the middle of it -- or after i unpluged it -- the audio would die.

So I went to install vista. All i got was No Audio Output Device is installed and there was no audio device inside my device manager.

So i formated and installed windows 7. Same thing.

I updated the bios -- which has no option to turn off/reset onboard audio. Nothing happened.

I can't install the drivers because the drivers can't find the damn audio device.

So i guess my audio is faulty and dead? It would be odd because I did nothing for it to break. I have it on a cooling table always. This just sucks. =[.

Any ideas or am i just a dead man?

I have trouble with that damned C-Media driver every time I format - but it is a decent card, so it's almost worth the stress. I'm not sure which of the many things that i try that works, but if you get no sound or a constant buzz in the background, then you have the same thing i had. I kept reinstalling the driver and changing the input, environment, etc settings in the C-Media audio tool (installs with the driver) and eventually, without having to restart, it fixed itself. It has also corrupted itself over time for no reason - i think that may have been the reason for an earlier format of my pc.

Two Questions, both audio related. First of all, when burning music files to a CD, I notice that you loose all the data such as the name of the artist. Is there any way of preventing this, or to put the data back yourself? Secondly, The sound level of individual tracks copied from various CDs tends to be higher or lower, and you need to adjust the volume as you play each track. Is there any program that can correct the problem so you have a more balanced level on each of the tracks?

A:Two Audio Problems

Which program do you use to burn your CD's?

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?

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 everyone, I have a very odd problem. My sound card has stopped working, or there is a problem with it. Whenever I open iTunes it tells me it has detected a problem with my audio configuration. Whenever I try to play a song in Windows Media Player it doesn't play it say's there is a problem with my sound device. What is odd is my computer is fairly new, 1 year old, so everything is compatible. It just started to do this, and everything was working before. When I open up my Audio Manager and I try to test my sound. IT WORKS!!! I don't get it, music doesn't work but the Audio Manager does. Plz help, its driving me nuts. Thank-you.

Have you tried rolling your machine back with system restore? Have you recently downloaded the latest version of Windows media player. If so, there is your culprit. Restore to previous point and try it. Any other recent changes that you've made? I downloaded IE7 not to long ago and it made everything thing on my machine act buggy. I had to restore and go back to IE6.

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

Thank you

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.

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

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.

More info about the problem:


ATI High Definition Audio Device

When I go into device manager, it says that the device is working properly

When I try to update driver, it says I have the latest version installed

There is no yellow exclamation mark next to the device in device manager

Audio does not work, and interestingly, if I try to play a song in Media Player I get an error
C00D11B1 and it says the file cannot be played

Also, if try to watch a youtube video, I get no sound (obviously), and the video is extremely choppy even if I let it buffer fully

Applications still all run perfectly, there is just no sound

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.

Help is appreciated, need info? just ask please
 

A:My Audio Problems

You might have to replace the proprietary Sound Blaster with a Vista approved sound card. If this computer doesn't handle Vista, Windows 7 might not be a suitable OS either

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.

Hi All,

The other day I reformatted and reinstalled XP on my computer. Usually I am able to find and install the audio drivers without a problem, though iv'e been searching the internet for days now and am yet to find a working audio driver. After numerous computer crashes from installing the wrong audio drivers I thought I would come to the experts.

Operating System:

Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 (build 2600)

VIA Technologies, Inc. P4M266-PM12T

Enclosure Type: Desktop

Help would be greatly appreciated. A donation will follow if you can get a working driver.
