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?

Hi,

[I AM IN DESPERATE NEED OF HELP!]

I have been making a movie using Windows Movie Maker and I finished it today. It works perfectly and everything is ok, except for the fact that I couldn't watch it without it looking solarised. (I'm not sure of the correct term). So, I download Windows Media Player 11 in hope of it being able to play my movie - it did. I then went on YouTube and tried to post it on there but no luck. Bored, I browsed through several videos realising the sound didn't work. I checked all volumes and everything and they were all ok. Windows Media Player's songs works perfectly. I checked a few other websites and no sound comes from there either. I have a Windows XP and my audio device is SigmaTel Audio (if that helps). If more information is needed, just ask me what it is and how to find it and I will tell you it (so long as it is relevant to the problem and not a password!).

I would really appreciate it if someone helped me out on this one - any ideas folks?

Hello This is my second posting for the same problem. I thought it was a malware issue but that was fixed from a prior posting, see http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/130436/infected-with-csrssexe/. What happens is this: the sound is choppy and sluggish when I play back ANY audio on my computer. It doesn't matter if the source is online, windows media player, or iTunes. And what I mean by sluggish or choppy is, for example, right now I am listening to Liverpool FC via streaming audio using windows media player. Once every 20-30 seconds the audio is sluggish and choppy, for example, a word such as "football" should take one second to say but when the problem occurs it takes 3 seconds to play back and the sound is choppy. Anyone have any ideas? Is my sound card corrupt? Or worse!?Thanks for the helpJordan

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)

I can bring the sound back, by going control panel>>Sound>>Playback (NVIDIA High Def Audio)>>Properties>>Advanced and then pushing the "Test" button. Sometimes I have to push the test button a couple of times, but ultimately the audio does come back.

I'm not going to waste your time guessing what the problem might be, so i'll just provide all details that I think could be relevant...

Click the speaker icon on the bottom right hand corner of your monitor. the volume could be off or muted. next check to make sure all the wires on the speakers are plugged in. If they worked fine and then you added something and they stopped try, reversing what you added. Finally try another set of speakers, maybe your speakers are just dead.

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 CD 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

This problem has stumped me. A couple of weeks ago I started having problems with the sound on my Toshiba Tecra S1 laptop, running WindowsXP Pro. I'm not certain, but I think this began after running Ad-Aware 2007, ARO, and Spybot S&D. I've used these programs without problems for some time with various PC's, but this particular laptop is a new-to-me, but used, computer. WindowsXP pro and Office came preinstalled on it, but without any installation CD's. I had to install the Toshiba-specific drivers and utils myself.The associated hardware and drivers are:Toshiba Tecra S1 laptop.Operating system: WindowsXP Pro, SP2Sound device: Analog Devices SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio.Sound driver ver. 5.12.1.3528, 11/4/2002, from Analog Devices.Video adapter: ATI Mobility Radeon 9000Video driver ver. 6.13.10.6280, 2/13/2003, from ATI Technologies.The problem has multiple symptoms:At times the sound stops working altogether.To recover sound, the laptop must be powered down, not just rebooted.While watching either a DVD or a movie stored on my HD, the sound will become scratchy, distorted, or otherwise noisy.When a noisy video is paused, there is a loud whining sound.The same happens while listening to music stored on my HD. At times, the music will sound like it is being played from a cassette tape that has been stretched.It makes no difference whether using built in speakers or a headset.Steps taken:Removed and reinstalled sound drivers from Toshiba's te...

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.

Not sure if this is the correct forum or not, if not please advise me which I should be in.

The audio portion of videos from the CNN website will not play when using Firefox. I have no problem when using IE. Video from other websites (ie. Yahoo) play fine.

I am using windows 7 and Firefox 3.6.3

Thanks

it sounds like it could be a flash issue.
There are 2 versions of flash.
One for IE and one for everyone else.
You can find the FF version as well as many other things at www.ninite.com
It is a safe site I use it all of the time.
