Hello, My Acer randomly BSOD with PNP error and after restart I have no sound and I get a red x on my speaker icon in the lower right corner where the clock is. I checked the Device Manager and I get a yellow exclamation mark under System Devices and it seems the problematic device is Intel(R) Smart Sound Technology (Intel(R) SST) Audio Controller. Under Sound, video and game controllers I have only one driver left - NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (Wave Extensible) (WDM). When I click View --> Show hidden devices it shows the audio drivers which means they are disabled somehow, I think? Anyhoo, I've updated the problematic driver and hoped that this solved the issue but to no avail. I'm afraid to uninstall the driver because it's under System Devices and not under Sound, video and game controllers categories. I am starting to think it might be an hardware issue, but I seriously hope not. Perhaps you have some ideas what I could try to fix this?Read other answers
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.)
I bought the machine in June and it was silent, but now we're hearing a very low volume hum/buzz (kind of like a mosquito passng by your ear, except 3 octaves lower) more and more frequently. It emanates from the right side - approximately under the Enter Key vicinity and occurs intermittently for maybe 2 or 4 seconds as the machine is actively processing data or updating webpages. It's not correlated with the fan turning on/off. Any ideas?Read other answers
Sound on my machine cuts out randomly. Reinstalled audio driver but it still happens. I think it is hardware. If I tap on the case, I can get sound to come back. Acer wants me to send it in for repair but I don't want to be without the machine for two weeks. I tried headphones (they work). I am suspecting the headphone jack itself - maybe a bad mechanical connection where it switches from speakers to headphones. Anyone else have this problem or a solution?Read other answers
Okay, I couldn't find anyone with this problem, so I'm creating a new post. One month ago I've bought VN7-792G and I'm satisfied with it. But there is one strange problem - during certain events (receiving notification via Facebook/Steam, when launching a sound file or jumping through a YouTube video) I can hear a silent "tick" sound from lower left corner of my laptop. I've tried updating BIOS and sound drivers, but this problem persists.Read other answers

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-890GPA-UD3H (rev. 3.1)
(Note 3) Simultaneous output for DVI-D and HDMI is not supported.
What I'm trying to do is output just my sound to the receiver via HDMI cable, but still use the DVI to my monitor for video. From the note above taken from the MB specs, sounds like this is not possible.
This is new business to me and wondering how others do this, seems little information I can find. I am ordering a HDMI to DVI cable so I can disconnect the DVI cable from the computer and instead run both video and sound through HDMI to the receiver, then the video to the monitor. Hoping this works.
If all fails then I am relegated to separate digital through S/PDIF optical link, to my receiver. According to the experts this is less than ideal since now, the multi-channel dolby and DTS signals can only be received via HDMI.
Wondering if I get a Blu-ray player for my computer how this is going to all work out. Hoping that HDMI to DVI cable does the trick.
Anyone with experience with this kind of set-up and the aforementioned hardware greatly appreciated.
And Happy NEW YEAR!
As you have a separate video card, its capabilities should determine how the video works, not the motherboard. The video is routed to the video card.
If you had some type of integrated Video on the motherboard then the motherboard's specs would apply. For example, I have an Intel i7 3770 CPU and this model has built in Intel HD4000 video which is routed to motherboard video connectors and thus the motherboard would determine how the video is distributed. However, I'm using a separate video card and thus that determines how video is distributed.

2 re your disclaimer - no need for any apologies, but your post is a little difficult to read, we would have been better with separation of the main points by paragraph spacing. However I think I have the situation
3. Lets start with the basic possible causes.
4. I do not know that monitor but the jack for the speakers is connected to the audio from HDMI input is it the 3.5mm just in case there is another jack socket
5. Please see screenshot and check levels
as if volume is right down there will of course be no sound
6. I cannot understand why the headphones are shown as the Realtek speakers they are I thought usually shown as second ouptut

My speed in W8 is much less than my speed in W7 but I'm wondering what would happen if you were to do a cold boot with everything plugged in. In the past the system does an inventory of connected devices when it boots. Sometimes on a warm boot it reads the cached inventory. Maybe . . . .
It's the most suspicious sound I've ever heard. It sounds exactly like fat, felt tip marker making a quick check on paper. It can also be compared to a rat sniff or a piece of paper being turned. I wear headphones and can hear this noise occasionally for up to 15 minutes. It likes to happen at night, when 'they' are active ( humor me ). Because of the sneaky, low volume, discreet, low down, creepy, stalky, shifty sound I am disposed to imagine that someone is looking through my files for credit information and they are unaware of these sounds from my sound card, or they don't care about the sound because they are safe from being caught.
Sound like I'm crazy? Just paranoid. I did say it makes me imagine. The kind of person I am is the same kind that will run system restore at a moment's notice for anything that looks suspicious or a NoScript violation. Because that sound is clearly designed to resemble a sniffing rat doing something sneaky on my computer. I tried to record the output with Audacity 1.3, but it had stopped before I had recorded anything.

I am getting a laptop. Right now I am deciding between regular "High Definition Audio 2.0" and a "ExpressCard Sound Blaster X-Fi Laptop Sound Card with Wireless Receiver Bundle". The latter is 134 dollars more. Would the latter make the output of sound better on external speakers. Say if you're a DJ, and you use the laptop, would the sound coming out of the speakers at those high volumes be much better if you have the better soundcard? Or does it not have any effect on the output sounds? Thanks!
It affects the external output even more than the one from the integrated speakers.
I get sound from the mic of course.but I would like to get sound straight from the sound card too when I want to.I don't know exact model,but it's a realtek HD on board sound card.Acer 5551 series laptop
You get sound from your microphone? I don't think I am understanding. Sound should come from your sound card. You plug the speakers into the back of the computer and into the sound card (green jack). The mic receives sound. My mic is USB so it doesn't use any jack other than the USB port, but if you use the sound card, it goes into the purple jack
Do you have the audio driver installed? This should be right: http://support.acer.com/product/defa...x?modelId=2192

For start up sound go to personalize>sounds>at bottom of box place a check for "Play Windows Startup sound. With a laptop you probably are using realtek HD sound driver... you could look in task manager and see if it is turned on at startup, also in event viewer>windows logs>system and look at the time when you booted and see if there are any audio errors.Read other 3 answers

I just noticed today when I was going to listen to some MP3's that my sound card makes a buzz on the output jack, a really high buzz you can't hear anything but the buzz and a small echo of the music. I'm 100% sure its in the output jack, I also tryed hooking up my headphones to the card and I got that buzzing noise in the headphones too. I didn't hot plug the speakers, and theres nothing wrong with them I have been listening to them all day through my cd player so there has to be some hardware problem. I messed around with the settings and nothing changed. I have rebooted my computer several times and messed with the connection jacks to my amp and still no change. I just used the output jack the other day when watching a dvd and it worked fine. The only thing that would effect the system that I've done to my computer since I watched the dvd is that I ran windows disk defragmenter and I got an error lke 30 seconds after the screen saver came on(I forgot to disable it). I have windows 98, AMD Duron 800 MHZ processor, 192 mb of ram, 40 gig drive. I've gone through the hardware settings and nothing has changed in the sound card drivers.
Usually when any piece of audio electronics has that irritating buzzing sound with faint music in background a physical ground is missing or a leak to ground has occurred.
You may have developed a problem in your audio card or with external connections.
Make sure all you physical connections to the card are good.
You may also want to remove the card from you PC and clean all the contacts on the card and reinsert.
After all above is tried you may want to remove the audio card from device manager and reinstall all your drivers.
If reinstalling and cleaning all contacts does not solve the problem you may have a defective card.
I'm a college student with a desktop computer. Whenever I come home, I leave my speakers at school.
I used to have Windows Vista. When I'd come home, I could listen to music without headphones or speakers. In other words, sound would come from my sound card.
I now have Windows 7, which will only play sound when I have headphones or speakers. How can I enable Windows to let sound play from my sound card when I don't have any other means of output?
Normally, desktops do not have speakers. If yours does, it's not the usual configuration on a desktop. Best to checkwith HP to see what you need to do, as you may need some special HP audio software to get it to work.
I've worked on several HP desktops and none of them had internal speakers.
Hi there ive recently put my Girlfriend's old PC back together and proceeded to install of the driver's. The problem is the PC is emitting so sound through the speaker's i visited the manufacturers website and downloaded the drivers from there yet still no luck, upon opening the Case i found a Cable labelled Speaker that was not connected to anything (its the same kind of cable as PWR LED,RESET SW etc) however unlike the majority of PC's ive built it has no pins to insert the Speaker cable into there is a part on the Motherboard that says speaker however, there's no pins built in to accomadate it the only other slot i could find that the Speaker cable could fit into was labelled SPDIF_OUT, but upon inserting the cable there nothing happens, The motherboard has 3 ports upon which an AV Jack (for my speaker's can fit into) pink green and blue, im assumming its supposed to be green, however i have tryed the other's also
The MotherBoard is : FOXCONN RC4017MA-RS2
OS: WINDOWS XP SP3
CPU: INTEL penium 4 3GHz
The sound card is built into the Motherboard.
Also upon entering Device manager there is no yellow checks at all.
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.
The speaker inside the case is used to emit the POST beep to let you know the computer hardware has passed the test and can boot. It does not play sounds from Windows or your audio. The Green plug is the Speaker out for your computer.
Boot into Setup (Bios) and make sure the onboard Audio is Enabled. At bootup you should get the new hardware wizard. You may need to download the driver from the Motherboard manufacturer If you don't know the model # of the motherboard then download Speccy and it will tell you the info you need.

This issue is hard to explain, maybe there is a term for it, I'm not sure. When listening to mp3s through my computer (with headphones) running vista, for some reason the computer tries to make up for loud parts by making the overall volume softer. It sounds really irritating listening to the volume vary every time there is a loud part to the song.
This problem seems not to happen on my XP installation, just Vista (dual-booted comp).
It's called "Volume Leveling." As far as I know, thats not a Vista feature. Does your soundcard have its own software that could be enabling it?
im wondering if its possible using winamp to play music and be able to record that song without using a mic.
what im trying to do is broadcast over msn to someone some music from winamp but i want the quality to be better than with a mic.
is there an addon to winamp that does this or is it in windows somewhere?

I am running Windows Vista Ultimate with Realtek HD Audio Manager installed and was using regular headphones in the front jack. I decided to plug a microphone into the front mic jack. When I did the sound cut off for the head phones. If I go into "playback devices" and Speakers "properties" then the "levels" tab, and unmute the "front mic" I can hear the microphone, but I cannot hear any other sound from the computer. Not even the ping when you select the volume.
How do I restore original sound options? Or if you have run into this before how do I run the mic and headphone at the same time?

I've got a Dell Vostro 200 with rear panel jacks for front/centr/rear speaker SurroundSound and RealTek HD Audio Manager...
I play on CombatArms, an online, team-based First Person Shooter put out by Nexon (nexon.net, they also run DungeonFighter, MapleStory & Vindictus).
Game sounds come thru standard Audio Out jack, and you can talk to team members thru Mic/Line in with "Mic On/Talk" toggle being key-mapable...
Headsets are VERY popular...
I have a CombatArms Playlist on my Windows Media Player, which I run while in-game. Output thru standard Audio Out Jack.
I have the various volume settings (System Master Volume, Media Player Volume, Game Sounds Master Volume, Sound Effects Volume and VoiceChat Volume) adjusted so the gunfire (gamesounds) is BARELY audible over the music and team members (VoiceChat) are SOFTER than the Lead Vocals but LOUDER than the Back-up Vocals of the bands.
Here's what I'd LIKE to be able to do...
I want to loop the MUSIC output to the Mic/Line input THRU the "Mic On" toggle key so that whenever I hit (or hold) the "Talk" button the music is ALSO broadcast to my team...
I tried a basic 3.5mm splitter but it caused an echo effect when team members responded. I assume this was caused by the fact that game sound AND music are coming thru the same jack...
Is there a way to separate those two signals so I can inflict my musical tastes on my team mates?

Hi all, so I've been trying to figure out what's going on with this acer 5520 amd 2ghz, 3gb laptop.
Basically this is what I've checked and done: drivers updated, bios updated/re installed re seated all internal components I.e: cd drive, ram, hdd . Fresh install of vista, win 7 and finally xp pro. Still no sound on any of them. Now I noticed the cd/dvd drive isn't picked up in my computer but it does open and spin a disk as if its pre loading the cd.
Sound is very intermittent when booting up the machine 9/10 it doesn't work.
Thanks in advance
Are there any motherboard chipset drivers for this unit? If there are, install them, restart the PC and then reinstall the Acer sound drivers (not the sound chip vendor sound drivers) and see if that helps. I had an Acer 7720 model and I tried the generic RealTek (the sound chip on the 7720) and they did not work correctly. I installed the Acer supplied drivers and no more sound problems.
Also in Vista/Win 7 make sure your "speakers" are set as the default "Playback" device in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel. I don't remember how that is setup in XP (remember this is a Windows 7 forum, not a Windows XP forum).
Hi all, New to this forum so apologies if this has already been raised. Recently upgraded from xp to win7. Have since updated to latest realtek drive. I can't get sound output to a Sony MD via front jack which used to work before the os upgrade. Even if I plug in a headphone I get no sound other than from the speakers. Speaker sounds are great as before. With the front panel sockets pink (mic) green (headphone) I used to be able to plug into either and realtek would automatically select the right source. Spkr config is stereo, No sound fx or room correction and default format is CD.
Any ideas anyone?

However, when I try to watch movies or listen to music there is no sound from the TV. I can even be playing a song, press the 'Test' button, and it rings just fine.... but no music.

Hi,My problem is that one fine day the sound output on my desktop computer went very low without any reason or warning. I did everything I could, tried with different speakers, even with my stereo system, but the sound was low in all of them, so I figured this had to be a hardware problem inside the computer - or specifically on the motherboard, since I use the onboard sound output of my Intel DG31PR.I think it started after - or just around the time - I changed my power supply unit (my computer had begun to restart by itself, esp when I tried to use the cd-rom drive, I checked and saw the power supply fan had stopped turning, so I replaced the PSU and all the problems went away, all except this one!) So I exchanged my new power supply for another unit, but the sound problem is still there. I've been struggling with this a long time, so all the obvious explanations are ruled out. (I've attached a few pics to illustrate!)
9 downloadsThere are no hardware conflicts, I have tried with all the new and old drivers for the device, but nothing works. In fact, now I think the sound is getting progressively lower!

Welcome to Bleepingcomputer.
If you feel your on-board sound chip is failing, you can always purchase a decent add in sound card and turn off the on-board.
I can see your volume controls are all maxed out, I should advise you that certain software such as Windows Media Player has its own built in volume control.
You should make sure you have adjusted those controls as well as your on-board chips volume properties.

(Note... I had first posted this in hardware, then decided to move here.)
This seems to be my week for mysteries.
Last evening, I noticed I was not getting sound from my speakers... nothing... systems sounds, MP3's, etc. I checked the obvious things like volume control, mute, etc. All good.
This morning, after a reboot, same thing.
If I play something and crank the volume WAY up, I can faintly hear it.
I've checked everything I know to, but feel I'm missing something. This change happened abruptly with no other changes. I would think that if the sound card went south, I would hear absolutely nothing. This is like a level setting thing... that I can't find.
I did a complete power down / power up and all is well now.
Must have been some sort of reset.
Wish I had a more technical answer than that.
Ok, so here's my problem:
I need to voice chat, but I it doesn't play my voice. As the title sais, the sound output from my speakers goes directly in the input for my microphone. And I don't want that... How do I fix this?

I have a TV that is already hooked up to my PC screens output and a 5.1 surround sound receiver/system downstairs that I wish I could hook my computers normal sound output up to with the single s/pdif cord. I want to use it to watch non-dvd movies (avi, vcd).
I recently bought a Hercules Game Theatre XP and Ive come to find out that you can't really output the PCs normal wave out to the S/PDIF because an ac3 stream would have to be created. Is there anyway to create this stream and output it via the power-dvd s/pdif filter?? This could possibly be implemented in zoomplayer as it supports sound re-routing and what not.
If anyone knows any software work around of how to output PC wave to ac3 stream OR any hardware card that DOES do this....please lemme know!

Hi. i was just wondering if it was possible to have more than one set of speakers play audio at the same time. For instance i have a set of speakers, but also have some on my monitor, i can only use one set by changing the settings in the audio properties i.e to desktop speakers. Also when you plug headphones or them speakers which go into portable cd players the sound mutes from the primary speakers and only plays on the set of speakers you plug in. Hope ive not confused anyone here. Just thought there might of been a setting allowing you to use more than one audio output at once.
There is no simple solution, such as a setting, to your problem. One solution is to buy a small stereo preamp to plug into the computer, then branch from the preamp output to speakers that have built-in power amps.
Is it possible to change the output device of a sound playing on my computer?
Like, can I let iTunes play on my USB headphones while sound in Firefox plays on my non-USB speakers?
The only program that I know that has this built in functionally is Skype and other Voip programs. For example, I can listen to music on my speakers while talking on Skype using my headphones.
Is there any 3rd party software I can use to "force" certain programs to output to certain devices?

I have used Magix audio cleaning lab for many years for recording sound on my PC however since upgrading to Windows 7 this program will not record sound and I have been forced to use Audacity which is much less user friendly.
After investigation I have found the problem is that Windows 7 outputs sound as WASAPI and that Magix software does not support this format.
Is it possible to chnage the sound output to MME which Magix can and does handle?
I was wondering if there was a way to limit the master volume output. My teenager's do not understand that there are volume setting other than Max. I don't want to totally disable the sound just limit how loud it gets when they turn it up.

My Mom got her PC repaired at a crappy shop. He tricked her into changing the sound card as a problem to the slow speed of the PC.
But, he installed a good one(Creative SB Live! series)
(He Didn't gave her the box of the same)
Now, The problem is that it is giving out extremely low output.
I have checked the system sound control. But i cant find Why the hell it is giving such a low output.
I installed the latest drivers by Driver_Easy(Because i couldn't find the drivers at the site).
[Attached is the description of my sound card. ]
Going by the DevID in that screen shot it is the Dell version of the Live 5.1, which doesn't work with the regular Live drivers. For that card (at least on XP) you need the one here,
Creative Worldwide Support > Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 Digital (Dell)
Click on the Driver link to show them all and the one you want is,
(Dell) Driver Install Pack 2 10 Languages

Hello, please help.
I have my laptop Dell Studio connected to Hitachi HDTV input, the problem is that the TV displays picture (although not in full recommended resolution, not sure why either), but the sound is not coming out from the TV speakers. The audio device manager shows as if sound is being used, the little green bars move up/down when something is being played but no actual sound is heard.
I have attached a picture of the audio device manager page to show you how is configured right now.
I'm desperate and I don't know what to do.
