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.)

So i listen to music on itunes and I put it on max volume, then like 20 min of me listening to music it suddenly freezes and makes a LOOOOOOOOUD sound that I can't exactly describe, its like a horn sound?? Well anyway's its very loud and the laptop gets frozen so there isn't anything I can do except press the off button to restart my laptop. Whats wrong with it? I barely got my laptop 4 months ago! And this problem only happens when I'm listening to music please help? :]]

Also I have enough ram because I barely install anything and I don't have many files like music and pictures saved on my laptop either :)

Your computer may be overheating. Blow all the fans out with a can of compressed air. Consider a laptop cooler.
Does this happen if you listen to music through headphones?

I have just installed a sy-p4vda motherboard and pentium 4 2.4 ghz processor into a recently purchased case with a 300 watt 12volt power supply. After reformatting the hard drive and reinstalling windows (ME) and installing my geforce 4 mx 420 drivers for my video card i still cannot play games. I do have direct X 8.1. I have updated all the drivers for the motherboard, bios, video card, and sound. The games (any game) will load and then just freeze when they are attempted to be played. I have hooked up the polk audio speakers (2 channel) from my old HP Pavilion computer. My computer is using the onboard audio feature with the motherboard called Realtek (previous called Avance '97). I can barely hear the sounds for windows. I have turned all the settings in sounds and multimedia up, still the sounds are not very load. The speakers do not have there own power supply and run off the computers motherboard, hooking directly in to the motherboard's jack. I recently purchased 256mb ram PC2100 with my case. Windows runs smooth and fine. It's just that i can barely hear any sounds and every game i have tried to play has locked up completely. If anyone could help me out it would be greatly apprcieted. Thank you and have a nice day.

Hi there,
When I use headphones with my Surface Pro (Win 8) I cant hear the voices in my videos - the background music/sound effects are just too loud.

How can I fix this? I have tried using the Win 8 Video player as well as VLC Player and I still get the same issue.

I have tried the headphones on my iPhone and have no problems.

It has been a long time since i've used a Windows computer (usually have a Mac) so sorry if this is a silly question.

Thanks in advance
Nathan

A:Voice not loud with headphones - background music too loud

You cou;d try using Winamp as it has an equalizer. Most DVDs the sound track and effects are pumped up compared to dialog. It drives me crazy, but short of demuxing, fixing the audio yourself then remuxing, trying to boost the voice frequencies is about all you can do.

Hello forums, im crazykilla

I don't know why this is, but when i turn up my speakers and play something loud, they buzz, i can't really explain it, as i have sat here for 3 minutes trying to do so, the sound doesn't have to be too loud, about 50% volume will make my speakers buzz:



as you can see i have this stuff in my speakers, i guess these might be the source of the buzzing, try to put your speakers up very loud and see if yours buzz, i've had this with the previous speakers and i wonder if theres a way to fix it?
by the way i have a sound card built-in my motherboard, maybe it's the sound card? i can get a new one if it would fix this annoying buzzing

A:My Speakers Buzz at loud sounds

If you only paid a few dollars for your speakers, that could be the problem. If they are fairly cheap, buy some new ones and see if that fixes the problem. Has it always been this way or did the problem just start?

when I got my Toshiba satellite it had been a display model and the audio driver had been deleted so when I downloaded one (realtek hd audio) the sound was really quiet even with the volume turned all the way up.
The weird part is that while the sound is quiet for things like videos and music it is loud for system sounds like the startup and pings.
I've gone into the control panel sound setting and checked but they were both up, I turned the system sounds down but I would like the regular audio to be louder if possible.

A:System sounds are loud, everything else it too quiet

The preferred audio driver is the one from the PC vendor. Check with Toshiba for a driver for your exact model, as a first step.

Hi,

This PC problem has been around since the computer was purchased two years ago.
The computer name is Compaq Presario PC AMD 64 Athlon, the OS being Windows XP Media Center Edition. I've noticed that, whenever a program loads up, taking more than 70% of the CPU (in the task manager), the computer fan spins so quickly that a very loud whirring sound is produced. Not only is this sound annoying to hear, but also I am worried about the long term damages of the computer when the internal server overheats (which is probably why the fan is spinning so loudly).
Terminating the application in the task manager is what i do if the fan-spinning doesn't stop on its own, but there are several problems:
1. If that application is System, then I can't terminate it
2. Sometimes an application (e.g. IE) loads for a second and the CPU usage jumps quickly to 100%, before jumping back to 0%. This could damage the CPU
3. If I'm using a certain program, or visiting a site that has flash media, for example, the fan would spin loudly. I'm stuck between stopping what I'm doing or enduring the loud noise before the computer invariably shuts down on itself

Is there any way to fix this problem?
 

A:Presario PC fan produces loud sounds, shuts down computer if not stopped

It's probably too late now but if it was doing this since it was new, you should have returned it to be fixed free under warranty. It sounds like the heatsink is not connected to the CPU properly or there is something wrong with the thermal compound connection between the heatsink and CPU.

Just bought this HP notebook.  Seems very good, except for the audio.  When music is playing, it appears to automatically cut the volume when the level gets high, then it slowly increases.  This gives music an annoying loud-soft-loud-soft feel that sounds awful.  I don't want it normalized, just played straight. This occurs both for online music and for local music.   However, it only happens with the internal speakers.  With an external speaker plugged in, no distortion. I am trying to turn this off, if at all possible.  My searching shows that some drivers have "loudness equalization" for audio effects;  However, when I go to Playback Devices > Properties, the Enhancements tab does not have any options at all.  Any ideas?  The laptop will be used for frequent music playing, so this is a deal breaker if it can't be modified.

I recently recorded some songs on video at a concert on both an iPod nano and regular camera, and although the video came out fine, since we were standing so close, the mic must have been overloaded on both devices, and when they are played, they are just so muffled and distorted because the music there was SO LOUD. Is there any way, hopefully easy, to reduce the sound, and possibly recover some of the music so it at least partially listen to-able? Thanks!

Not sure where to put this as I'm quite sure it isn't a hard drive issue per se...

I've a weird issue with Windows 8.1 and my mechanical hard drive. I've a 2TB Western Digital hard drive that's partitioned with one of the partitions being a Media partition (H) containing over 107 gig of images, mostly tiff files ranging from 80-700 meg. I'm a photographer who tends to edit it layers.

Anyway for some odd reason when I access a folder containing these files, my hard drive goes into a frenzy and starts making loud vibration noise as though the drive is thrashing rapidly. Additionally I get a green bar going across the address bar as though it's establishing access permission. I've checked the drive and initially it just had "Everyone" listed so I added Administrators, and myself. But it still acts as though it's seeking permissions...



Interestingly enough no other folder or partition goes into this frenzy; just the folders under H partition containing the tiff images.

My initial thought is it's a caching issues as the PC is trying to cache and display the thumbnails for these files but I'm not sure. And if it is, how do I fix?

BTW this is a replacement drive as I thought my other drive was defective since it was doing the same and had it RMA'd.

Also this is basically the same partition/orginization structure that was under my Win 7 machine and I never had this issue.

Thoughts???

Thanks

Hey Drew,

Not sure what may be causing this, but you might see if defragging the HDD may help any.

In addition, it wouldn't hurt to test the HDD with Data Lifeguard Diagnostic to see if it passes and reports anything.

I just got a beautiful new laptop for Christmas (HP Pavilion g7 1260ca). Every time I start it up, it starts in "Windows Boot Manager" and makes me select Windows 7 as my operating system. That's annoying in it's self (why won't it just start on it's own! It's not like I'm running another operation system as well!) but what's even worse, as the text is appearing on the screen, a loud obnoxious beep sounds with each word that appears!
I checked to make sure no keys are stuck, so it's not that. Once I choose Windows 7, I'm able to sign in with no problem.
How can I turn off the beep? And how can I make Windows 7 start automatically?

Hello ChelseyWol Welcome to the Seven Forums!

Brand new and under warranty! Take it right back! Don't attempt to do any repairs yourself! That would likely void the warranty the unit comes with.

The default preinstalled copy of Windows 7 should at least upto the point where you would select the user account during the initial setup. Refer to the user guide as well to make you followed the procedure correctly there too.

The beeping part however does sound a bit odd and the purchaser who gave you the laptop may want to bring it back in to the store or dealer where it was bought for examination or replacement if a problem is found.

ok so i have been having thi sprob for a long time, like ever since i got the card, actually. tried looking thru creative forums, even contacted creative customer support several times. it happens when i am playing a game, or even just playing music, but not as often.

here is what i have done to try and fix: change pci slot of card, change audio settings in creative audio console, change latency settings, change all types of bios settings, uninst/reinst drivers 100's of times/manually delete registry entries/installshield entries/use drivercleaner pro, etc; close ALL background processes except the ones you can't close, probly more but i cant remember off hand.

this doesn't happen during any particular game either. it happens during the elder scrolls 3: morrowind quite frequently though. other games : wizardry 7, wizardry 8, i DO play a lot of "older games" (1999-2002) and there is no compatibility mode built into the sound card or creative software. i have tried running the games under windopws compat mode, no help either. any ideas anyone?

Well my computer had a virus, and thanks to the awesome people on this site I was able to fix it. Prior to that I tried to fix it myself using Malwarebytes. Anyway my computer was clean and everything was running normal. However, after I uninstalled Malwarebytes I tried to play music on Musicmatch Jukebox, and I got the error: Waveout not supported. This was odd because I was able to play music on itunes and Windows Media Player. Then I realized that I also could no longer hear system sounds and that I couldn't hear sound on youtube. I checked my soundcard: Creative Sound Blaster Live, which was working fine. I tried to reinstall Windows Media Player, which didn't help. I installed K-Lite Codec pack, which also didn't help. After I uninstalled K-Lite and went back to my original codec pack, CCCP, it was then that I got a prompt telling me that I was missing some Registry Keys which would affect my computer's sound. I'm wondering if I accidentally deleted something when I uninstalled Malwarebytes.You can view my original topic here, the sound issue is on the second page.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/276614/my-desktop-has-a-green-screen-telling-me-my-system-is-infected/Help to fix this issue would be greatly appreciated ^_^Thanks so much!

I can also hear any music/sounds etc from games
the only problem I have is the media files.

Windows Media Player won't play any media file I throw at it the same problem happens with Media Player Classic Home Cinema (codecs are optional)
this has happened after I followed these guides:
Remove Favorites, Libraries, and Homegroup from Navigation Pane
Computer - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane

I clearly wanted and I still want to hide some items from navigation pane.
If you use it much some items are not needed and are bothersome if you have them.

So I hid Libraries and done everything as it says to remove Homegroup.

So what I have to in order for Media Players play media properly once again?

Except of Restoring everything as it was.

A:Windows do not play any Media Files (you can hear sounds though..)

1. Go to device manager, find the audio device, and make sure it's enabled.

2. Update your on-board audio device.

3. Click on Start and type SOUND. Click the tab PLAYBACK. Right click to show Disabled and Disconnected devices. Make sure your speaker is Enabled. Right click on speaker and run Test. Should hear up and down notes. Double click on your speaker to bring up Speaker Properties. Go to tab Levels and make sure nothing is muted.

Hi everybody, I would like some help!

I recently bought a new fan to help with cooling as the summer approaches. My new fan replaces my old chassis fan but is plugged in slightly differently as it is plugged into the 3 pin mother board connector (the old one was plugged into the molex and is now positioned as an intake fan at the front).

My problem is that since I've installed the new fan my computer is actually louder than before, Everest tells me that the revs for the new fan are 5114 rpm as I type this so it's clearly working too hard. I think it's working too hard because my processor fan is only idling by comparison at 1705 rpm. Which temperature does the chassis fan use to control it's speed and why has my CPU fan suddenly become lazy since I installed the new fan? Is there anything I can do to make the CPU fan work harder and take some of the burden off of the chassis fan?

Many thanks for any help!

Hello World. I have tried everything to no avail, so I respectfully ask for the assistance from some of the Seven Guru's here! I cannot figure out what is forcing my CPU fan to spin faster than it ever has before. It is unbearably loud! I have a HP Pavillion a1520n, which I purchased new 3yrs ago with Windows XP installed OEM. Everything is stock save for the HDD which I swapped a year back. Windows Seven upgrade advisor said my machine was capable to run Seven. So I installed RC1 x32. I have tried all the drivers on the HP website. Updated BIOS, graphics drivers straight from Nvidia, the whole nine yards. Even reinstalled Seven. No error messages in the action center, no hidden updates and no alerts in device manager. Every few minutes, under normal conditions, the fans shoot up to 100%! Sometimes even when the PC is idle. The noise will last about 1 minute, and I cannot find a rhyme or reason as to why this is happening. The fans stay calm in the BIOS at start-up, but as soon as windows seven gets started... the fans go wild! Any help with this situation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A:Loud CPU Fan...What should I do?

Hi and welcome to TS!

Try cleaning the CPU's fan. It may be too dirty. You can easily clean it using a can of compressed air.
If that doesn't help, maybe you'll need a newer, quieter fan from a 3rd party, like Arctic Cooling or Zalman. They make excellent, low noise coolers, but they can be expensive.

Stock coolers are usually loud, that's why most people prefer to use a better quality HSF.

It's hard to say without hearing it for myself, but you may have a faulty fan somewhere in your computer. Can you open up your case and try to identify where the noise is coming from? Does the extra noise you are hearing sound like it could be a fan?

Another possibility would be your optical drive (cd drive or dvd drive)....

what I'm thinking is that is goes louder when the card gets hotter. e.g. while youre playing games.

A:fan too loud

Do you want to use "TV Out"? Its very low resolution (not suited for text) but OK for video etc. If so you could get a cable, they are not normally supplied.

The fans on some stock units are indeed loud as the high speed processors generate a huge amount of heat. You could get an alternative Heat SInk Fan unit fitted that may be a little quieter, or at a lot more expense fit water cooling.

The last couple days or weeks. My mic hasnt been as loud on my headset. I havent changed any thing at all or got any thing new. Right now the mic has to have mic boost and volume max. Before I didnt have to have to use mic boost at all other wise it would be to loud, but now it has to be max. In games like COD I no longer can talk, because my mic is to low with highest volume. Also my headset is pluged into mobo, and mobo is less then 1year old.

Even in vent I have to turn mic on max, and still hard to hear.

Using Vista

Okay, I just got a new computer, its literally only like 2 days old now, and on the second boot up the fan just start to go insane, running at full go. The first time I booted up the computer it ran quiet like a normal one is supposed to and like my previous one did. The computer is a Dell Inspiron 530 running Vista. Its really getting annoying since the fan is not slowing down at all. I'm not sure if its a defective fan, or a software thing making it go nuts.

Since it is brand new, you should probably contact Dell. They are not hard to replace but doing so might also void any warranty.

The fan on my new P51 (Xeon E3-1535M v6) is very loud. I can hear the fan on 10% CPU, on 30% CPU it is louder than my old W530 on 100% CPU, and over 80% CPU it sounds like a jet engine or a hoover, with a high pitched sound added to the air sound. It sounds like a cheap laptop. Is this normal? Is the P51 fan usually so loud? Or am I having a bad cooling system?

A:Fan too loud

It has to be a PWM fan to be controlled by the motherboard. If it has a 4 pin connector then its a PWM fan.

These days my cpu is really noisy. It used to be that when it was doing a lot of work the fan would kick in and it would hum loudly until it cooled off, but now it's really noisy pretty much all the time, even when its not eating cpu power.

any insight?

A:CPU very loud?

Well, CPUs don't normally becme noisy. This is because they don't have any moving parts.

Now, if the CPU fan has become noisy, this could be for any of several reasons.

1: The fan is going bad.

2. The CPU heatsink is dirty

3. The CPU is actually running at at high percentage duty cycle. (Possibly malware? This needs to be checked with the Task manager).

4. You've inadvertently set the BIOS to run the fans at full, by over riding the "smart fan" controls.

5. It is, after all Summer. (At least in the northern hemisphere).

Are you sure we're not talking about the PSU?

A:PC fan loud.goe`s up and down.

Pull off the front cover and see if the air intakes are clogged. Attached is a pic of a Dell with clogged front air intakes that was causing the fan to surge.

Hello ,

my mobo has 2 cpu fan ports, and I have 3 fans. So I have to use a splitter from one of the fans. The problem is I think the splitter makes the mobo unable to control the fan speeds of the fan which has been split from. But im not sure. Any ideas on what I can do?

thanks
 

A:Fan is loud

Why do you want to connect 3 fans to the CPU fan headers? Those are for fans cooling the CPU (pushing hot air out of heat fins).
