Sound on xp is out of wack...

Q: Sound on xp is out of wack...

hey guys,

so here's the deal, I was going to play some League Of Legends with my brother and forgot I hadn't installed ventrillo yet so I did that and then I hooked up my headphones and started talking to him. however he couldn't hear me so I went to control panel and the ventrillo settings and started changing some settings around until he could hear me...we never found a solution and now my sound on my computer is messed up and I can't hear anything. I was just wondering if there was any way I could set the settings back to default or something? because I really don't understand this whole audio thing
any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks,

Tyrael

Preferred Solution: Sound on xp is out of wack...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I got an old Inspiron 4000 Dell and installed WinXP on it. I hit the "34 Minute Hiccup" so I deleted a file named WDMA_es3.inf. I assumed this was my audio driver for my laptop. When I got XP set up there was of course no sound. When I tried to install the ESS Maestro 3i driver my computer wouldn't start up so I removed the drivers in safe mode. The sound card should be an ESS Maestro 3i or something like that. Are there any other drivers I could use? any response would really help. Thanks in advance!!!

Hi. This is gonna sound odd but every time I move my mouse real fast it goes out of control. If I don't move the mouse the cursor stays but with one little twitch and it is half-way across the screen again. This also tends to happen in Linux but Win2k is the worst. If I don't move it for about 3 seconds it goes back to normal until I move it fast again. And I am not even moving it that fast!!! Please help. Thank you.

I recently changed hardware on my pc. I did not uninstall or change anything about my hard drive, but when using it in the new pc, it kept telling me to activate windows. This was strange, never happened to me before so why now. So i go through so much
trouble trying to fix it and nothing worked. Even in settings under activation blah blah, it still wouldn't let me activate because "the servers were down". ok. So i call Microsoft support, and he keeps trying to get me to repurchase windows 10.
No. Bad customer service  rep. He did not help at all just made me do everything i already did and  when it said the servers were down, he told me its because i don't have a legit license. I downloaded windows 10 when it was free in 2016 or whenever.
So i never got a product key. So I used to windows 10 installer tool and it seemed to work, the watermark was gone. but later that day when i came home it was back. Then i tried the activation again and it worked. This was incredibly frustrating and annoying.
so i wanted to leave negative feedback to windows/microsoft. But i dont have the feedback hub, so i go to windows store and try to search bnut the search function doesnt work. I dont know why i thought any other windows app would be easy to use after everything
i just experienced. I have no question. This isnt about windows 8. This is the only place i found to try to tell microsoft anything. so tedious and annoying. yuck.

My explorer.exe does not want to cooperate with me. It "does" a combination of the feared "restarting" and "just shutting off and not coming back on."

R really don't know what to do as I have tried at least 20 or 30 of the things listed if you google "fix explorer.exe." Just tell me what you need to know.

By the way, give me links to anything you want me to download or something.

I don't know how to fix my screen on my laptop. There are buttons on my main computer screen where you can adjust the screen to fill the entire screen, but on my laptop I have no clue where the buttons are to adjust the width and everything to expand to fit the entire screen and not have an inch on each side. Does any of that make sense? Help please.

Hi guys! For a while now, the volume on certain websites has been messed up for me and I've tried everything and have come to a conclusion that maybe something's wrong, so I did a virus scan and then all of a sudden this message from McAffee started popping up:

Everything works fine until I get to number 16_sun city . Then for some reason I can't figure out, it skips from number 16 to number 20. After that things go completely nuts as the pix aren't viewable in proper order. 20 is followed by 18 for example.

Cheers all,

Problem is as stated in the thread; I downloaded, untar'd and set the theme up today. I know it's specifically the "Close Window" sound since it's unique from the others. I'm referring to the following actions in particular (there may be more things I could do to proc it, but I haven't checked yet)...
Opening a Program
Opening a Folder in Windows Explorer
Starting a new Windows Explorer Session
Closing a Window (expected function)
Closing a Windows Explorer Session (expected function)
Those not followed by (expected function) have a different sound assigned to them, although the Close Window sound plays anyways. Not always immediately after the action is performed, either - there can be anywhere from a 1 to 15 second delay before the .wav plays.

The sounds are located in C:\Windows\Media\AltimitOS\ with AltimitOS being a custom folder I copied in. I originally untar'd everything to the desktop, then created and moved everything into the folder and tried running the theme from there. I've made sure all file paths are leading to the \Media\AltimitOS folder.

Any help is appreciated. Cheers,
-Kalts.

I have good sound with other speakers on this desktop, but I wanted to save some workspace on my desk, so I recently got a new AX510 sound bar and attached it onto a Dell 2208WFP monitor, one of the monitors listed for that soundbar.  It powers up via the AC port built in to the monitor, just like it should, and I've correctly connected the audio cable on the soundbar audio output on my desktop.  But there's no sound at all.  I did get a static "pop" once... but no other sound.
So I am trying to figure out whether the sound bar is defective, or if this is possibly a Windows 10 issue, as I've read a few odd posts on the internet about people suddenly finding that previously working sound bars don't work in Windows 10.... or some other incompatibility (my desktop is a Studio XPS 8100, Windows 10).  I realize all of my equipment is not the latest, but it's all been in great working condition and the one new addition is the sound bar... I did plug my old speakers back in again, and they still work just fine.
I was thinking I can test the sound bar by connecting it to another computer at work (tomorrow) that's running Windows 7.  to determine if it's a Windows 10 issue -- or if it just doesn't work at all -- but would that be a definitive test it's not a Dell computer?  Any other ways to diagnose the problem and pin it down?  I can conceivably still return the sound bar if I determine it's defect...

I had personally not used this specific pc at this point. After a long factory reset, it reboot with normal setup screens and it said there were updates available and did i want to do that. I selected yes and it went and updated the pc. After the update was done, i was looking at the settings and i noticed there was no sound coming from the Wave speakers. I checked the usual control panels and Bang & Olufsen software and I could not make sound happen. I plugged in some headphones to the from port of the Wave PC and no sound at all either. I have the PC hooked up via HDMI to the HP monitor and that is the only peripheral that is connected. I have uninstalled the realtek driver and reinstalled it and no difference. Any other sugggestions out there would be much appreciated ! Tony

Hello Guys!  At my workplace we are experiencing with ALL  our x250's that the internal Realtek Sound Controller cant transfer sound to external devices, only picture.  In Device Manage -> System units, I can see that is detects the external input as "High Definition Audio-controller" but has a little warning triangle with an exclamation mark, and you cant select other speakers under sound (in the processbar) except from the build in speakers.  We have tried using all sorts of externalspeakers incl. mini-jack input, but nothing works.  Info:Model: Lenovo x250Win: Windows10 1803 build 17134.376Realtek High Definition Audio (controller) driver vers. 6.0.1.8409    17 Apr 2018 (newest version for 1803)Connection: MiniDisplay-port  I really really hope someone in this forum can help with this problem, as it affect alot of colleagues not being able to play sound on our projectors.

After closing a tab heavy google chrome window my pc had a crash during this crash the 1 second of the song that was playing repeated til the pc rebooted. After this tho I no longer have any sound at all from my computer. I'm running windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 2 installed. My speakers work I checked them with my mp3 player and the pc isn't on mute or turned down to zero. The strange part that confuses me tho is that the sound mixer window shows audio levels when i do play music or youtube but even with volume at full blast there is no audio as a work around for the time being i've set my pc to broadcast my pc's audio and then just use my lap top to tune into my station to listen to my music but this is getting old really quick when i check my sound card (realtek high definition audio?) in device manager it says 'this device is working properly' is it possible my soundcard broke/fried and it still showing it fine with audio levels moving?

Sound in windows has been giving me a hard time lately. I had to restore my registry manually via the Windows Recovery Console recently because Windows kept thinking it was in safe mode, thus preventing a repair installation from continuing. So, after restoring the registry from an earlier part of the day when the issue wasn't a problem, Windows started up fine, and everything was working as it once did. Except for sound.

The volume controls icon does not show in the taskbar. I've gone into Control Panel -> Sounds and Devices and checked the box that is supposed to place the controls in the taskbar, but to no avail. Still doesn't show up. I know that this is usually caused by incorrectly installed sound drivers, but they are installed fine and do not appear in an errored state in the device manager. I've also reinstalled the sound drivers from my motherboard's drivers disc multiple times with no change.

Oddly enough, any sounds that are supposed to be played by Windows do not play. If I open a file in Windows Media Player or in a game, the sound plays perfectly fine.

On top of that, I'm also getting trouble with recording sounds. Not just with a microphone, but even from they stereo mix channel. In Sounds and Audio Devices Properties, looking at the Voice tab, the default device for Voice Playback is blank. I set it to Realtek HD Audio Output, but when I press apply, it resets to blank. When I set it to the Realtek Output and go to the 'test hardware' button, I ca... Read more

Good morning everyone,
 
I am having issues with sound on the M92 or G1U3306 as stated on the subject. The sound works perfectly fine for everything with the exception of Istation, www.istation.com. I did notice that this is only affecting 2 out of the 20 plus computers we have, so its a bit hard to say its just the model. I have tried updating the drivers to the latest version, and as well verified that it was not just the input device for front and back jacks being wonky. Oddly enough the support agent I worked with, used TeamViewer and was able to hear the application just fine, however when I used speakers it was very, very faint but I could also hear it. 
 
Is there any general help anyone can provide me to pinpoint the problem further?

Hi guys...
I just plugged my Onkyo 6.1 Channel (S-680) to my computer. I connected the receiver to the Digital Out port of my motherboard (Intel 915GV Chipset-Asus PTGD1 - LA). It uses the Realtek ALC880 drivers. Whenever I open Sound Effect Manager and do the Speaker Test, sound comes only from my front speakers. The rears/centre/sub all light up but no sound is played. However, while running games/music/films I get sound from all my speakers (though not very satisfactory and not real surround sound). Can anyone please help me with this?

Also, I can't open Realtek HD Audio Manager (RTHDCPL.exe). Only RTLCPL.exe (Sound Effect Manager) works. When I click on RTHDCPL.exe nothing happens. Please do help out.

Thanks.
 

A:No Sound From Surround/Centre/Subwoofer In Realtek Sound Effect Manager Test

try this:

1) try to go to the settings of your sound effect manager & there are selections there for 2.0,2.1.5.1 or what ever you may find that corresponds to your speaker channel.

2) if nothing corresponds to the given selections,try to download the latest audio driver from your motherboard's manufacturer website.

3) otherwise,you need to plug-in a sound card that has the feature to play with 6.1 channel audio.

goodluck

It's a new Dell and it has been making crackling sound since I got it.
I spent an hour on the phone with a technician who restored the laptop with Windows 8.1 to an earlier point in time and it stopped crackling for the rest of the day, but the next day, the noise was back.
The worst are "ding" sounds, they have more crackle than ding. Video playback is bad but at least we can understand what is said. Youtube is bad. mp3 audio is bad. Crackle is there with earphones too.

Hello. If it made the noise right out of the box you probably should have returned it as defective during the brief return period. 
Does it make the noise only when running on battery power or also when plugged into house current?

Brand new Windows 7 Home Premium (6 bit) computer. When I click on the Sound control panel item, sometimes it takes 1-2 minutes to open. But that's kind of minor (although I'd like to know how to fix it), because sometimes the HDMI sound to my HDTV works fine, and sometimes it doesn't work at all. The only sure fix is to reboot the computer, which isn't really what I want to do every time I want sound coming from the HDTV speakers.

More details: if I reboot the computer, and then switch from the monitor to the HDTV for my video output, I can open the Sound control panel (opens at normal speed) and then I select the HDTV to be the default sound device; and everything is good. At some point, I stop watching the HDMI output to the HDTV, switch the video to my main monitor, and the sound now comes out of the computer speakers. Great. That's what I want. I can even turn off the HDTV, come back 20 minutes later, switch the video back to the HDTV and the sound goes through the HDTV speakers. Switch back and forth a couple of times and everything works as expected. Great. That's what I want.

But at some later point in time, it stops working, and I don't know what triggers this. At this later point in time, I switch the video from the monitor to the HDTV, but now the sound remains with the computer speakers, if I try to open the sound control panel, it takes 1-2 minutes, and when it finally opens the sound control panel no longer lets me select the HDTV to be the default soun...

A:Sound Control panel takes 2 minutes to open; HDMI sound inconsistent

I had the slow opening sound panel/playback section for a while. I tried several things and all of a sudden the problem went away. Not sure what fixed it but I have updated the AMD video card drivers several times, no audio driver updates. The only common point is that I too have an AMD video card (HD7770).

In most cases, if the PC "speakers" (sound card) is set as the default audio playback device and then an HDMI cable is plugged into the PC it will automatically switch to the HDMI sound (and make it the default playback device), and if the cable is disconnected it automatically switches back to the speakers. If you are having problems accessing the sound panel, this is another option (for most) until you get the slow opening panel issue resolved.

A:changed integrated sound card for Sound Blasster Live but it is not working right

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

First. Go into your bios, and disable your onboard sound, and save and exit bios.

Once your computer has booted up, go into contol panel, and double click the sounds and audio devices icon.

Click on the audio tab, and set the sound playback device to your new soundcard.

Do the same for the sound recording device. Click on the voice tab and do the same. Click apply/ok.

Make sure you have the correct drivers installed for your new soundcard, and that your speakers are plugged into the new soundcard.

I recorded it using the Sound Recorder in the laptop.
The file is there, length is correct, just won't play and has this Janet Jackson thing in the properties.

Anyone could help me with this?

In the last few weeks I have noticed my laptop sound works on a normal (not restart) boot, but then it disappears. I have to restart the laptop and then it's fine. The next day I boot up from cold, same problem. To clarify, on a normal boot I hear the Windows 7 startup noise, however, shortly after if I play a media file there is no sound. If I restart the laptop, everything is okay. I did install some updates through System Update which I'm guessing caused it. However, I have uninstalled them all now but the problem still exists. I have uninstalled my sound driver and let Windows reinstall it several times- no fix. Does anyone know what this exact issue is? UPDATE: Just realised when I ran System Update it did update some firmware. I wonder if that's what caused it (obviously I couldn't roll that back)

Ever since I got my second Video Card and went SLI I have had crippling sound problems. After playing for a while all sounds get replace with a high pitched squeal. This is only with games, not music (using WMP), DVDs (using WinDVD), and only with my sound card, not the (crappy) onboard sound (which has no problem). Some games may play for three minutes, others for close to fifty before this consistently happens. It seems to be simply subsistuting all sounds with this annoying noise. I quit the game it goes quiet, but music is now affected and DVDs have NO sound. Single GPU works fine (either card, either PCI-E slot), sound card in either PCI slot still causes the problem. I recently got a newer, better sound card but it does the exact same thing. I think it may be either a video card issue, or the motherboard. Is it something to due with the way the video card handles sound? Or the motherboard? HELP!! I really like the improved graphics (on a relative budget) that SLI brings, and don't like being hobbled like this.

Tried Turning down Sound Card Acceleration with the old card, didn't help.
