No Sound Output in VN7-792G

Q: No Sound Output in VN7-792G

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?

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?

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?

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.

My current set up is the Levovo Y50 gaming laptop, (i'll include the specs below) which is running windows 8.1. So let me explain the situation to you; I have an hdmi output to my monitor, which is being used to transmit audio and video to my external speakers, which are connected to the aux imput on my monitor.

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.

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'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.

My setup:

Windows XP Pro 64 bit Service Pack 2
Verizon High Speed Internet
Marvell Yukon 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller
LinkSys Router routing to a Windows 7 laptop, WPK-PSK, TKIP

A:How can I get sound output from sound card when streaming video?

Hello green,

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

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.
 

A:Sound Output

Hrumachis334
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.

Also upon entering Device manager there is no yellow checks at all.

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.

Hi,

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.

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.

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.

I have on board sound card, a Delta audiophile card and an external USB sound card and it seems to do it on all of them and I've tried 2 different sets of speakers and headphones. Odd thing is, it will record files without any static at all. I tried some recorded samples on a Mac today, and they were fine.

Any suggestions?

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.

A:Onboard Sound Output gone very low

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.

Ok...

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?

Thanks

I'd like to know if there is a way to have my speakers and Microphone work at the same time. Any help would be much appreciated. : ]

(Just for note, my speakers are SB Audigy LS, which is a product of Creative Technologies Ltd., in the case that this is needed in order to find a solution)

The only thing I suggest is to plug the mic in before your computer turns on.
Basically it's just taking precedence over your sound

Note: This still may not work, but worth a go

i would like to be able to record my dj sets i use my laptop for. i do not want to use cables to route sound from my headphone output to my mic input.

i have tried right clicking the volume icon>adjust audio properties, clicking the audio tab, then clicking the volume button under 'Sound Recording'

when i do this Microphone is the only option i have to record with. When i click the options>properties, there isn't even any other options for me to select in this window under recording...

someone please help me out here, i kinda know what i'm doing, but this is just frustrating now... is there a driver that i must download or some software? I have audacity, though im not too familiar with it.

Hello all,
I am new to the forums and my laptop.However I have one question about my sound,

Is it possible to take the sound from my laptop without is passing though my laptops DAC (Digital to Analauge converter) and feed the sound into the DAC on my Cyrus CD player 6XP (2010 Edition) and then onto my amplifier, so I can experenice the higher quality from the CD players DAC rather than my computers.

The ports I have on my laptop are:

1x Headphones out
3x USB
1x Card Reader
1x Microphones In
1x VGA out
1x Network out



Thanks

Short answer ... probably not.

However, there are some high quality dacs on the market that will connect to your computer by USB or Firewire and deliver mind blowing good sound... There's a lot of them and at a very wide range of prices, so do some google searches....

But do let me caution you... unless you have exceptionally good audio gear the audible improvements are likely to be lost to plastic speaker boxes, weak power supplies and poorly designed sub-woofers....

DAC vs Soundcard on high end gear such as McIntosh Audio... "WOW"
DAC vs Soundcard on $199 home theater in a box... "Why did I waste my money".

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?

After that I had restored my system to a time the sound was working, and there was STILL no sound. I've spent a full day trying to solve this. I'm at a complete loss at what could be causing this problem and would really appreciate some help with this.

A:No sound output on Windows 7 x64

Hi triwa,

If you right click on your sound icon in the tray icon area (bottom right hand side) and click Playback devices, what devices can you see in there.

I'm assuming of course you're using Win7/8.

If you've reinstalled the drivers without error as you said, you should have some working devices in there...

Cheers.

I'm using Edirol UA3D. The sound is fine for recording with Line In but the output to my speakers is very low. When I switch to Stereo Mix and record the output to my speakers is perfect. Why can't I hear what I'm recording with Line In at a sufficient volume? Thanks and Happy New Year 2012 all of you at Tech Support Forum!

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.

Any idea's?

Thanks in advance

A:intermittent sound output :s

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).

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 Realtek HD audio onboard, if that helps..

Sorry for my bad English,

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?
