Plugging/unplugging sound devices

Q: Plugging/unplugging sound devices

Hey guys. I ran into a little problem recently, and would like to share it.
I know it is supposedly ok to plug USB cables in and out while the computer is on, but, to be safe I have always gone through the Safely Remove Hardware icon.
For some reason, though, I have always felt it is safe to just plug sound devices in and out with no regard to whether the computer is on or not. Have done this for years.
However, I noticed a few days ago that one channel of my onboard sound line input had quit, on my newest MB. I did not realize this for awhile, because somehow the system had just rerouted the one channel into both sides, when writing to the CD or DVD. (I noticed that Joe Walsh appeared to be playing an unplugged guitar on the Eagles Hell Freezes Over concert after transferring from my old VHS tape to DVD, even though both speakers were working! LOL)
Anyway...I fixed the problem by just installing a sound card. (by the way, even a cheap $14.00 sound card is at least as good as most onboard sound: mine sounds much better than the original.)
So, would you guys advise having the computer turned off, even to plug in headphones, for instance?

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.)

A: Plugging/unplugging sound devices

No, 1/8" jacks can freely be plugged/unplugged while the computer is on, and when you're outputting sound.
As to why the jack went dead, couöd've been just natural death of age, removing the plug at an extreme angle and damaging the jack, etc...

I was wondering if anyone is familiar with a method to enable sounds for when you plug in or remove a charger connected to your laptop. It is not a problem with my pc, but is an option that is not available for me which i would like to install to let me know if i accidentally unplugged the charger, particularly if I'm working on a full-screen feature. Any help would be appreciated.
I have Windows 7 home Premium 32-bit installed.

A:How to enable sound when plugging/unplugging charger for laptop.

In the System Sounds, there is an option for device connect or disconnect. This will probably do what you want. You will have to assign a sound for those functions.

The System Sounds panel can be accessed from Start/Control Panel/Hardware and Sounds. Click on "Change System Sounds".

Getting ready to do the install on my new SSD with some trepidation. I have Raptors in Raid 0 right now and would like to simply unplug them, set the BIOS to AHCI and use the 0 port for the SSD experiment/potential fiasco. What I hope to be able to do if the SSD doesn't like me, is to unplug it, set the BIOS back to Raid, plug in the Raptors and pretend the whole thing never happened. Does this stand a chance of working?

A:Plugging and Unplugging!

I wouldnt unplug the raptor raid - if you use intel raid (the one i'm sure of and probably similar, or the same for others) when you enable raid in the bios it also enables AHCI - so you should be good to go with testing the ssd drive - just unplugging a raid array can be very hard to set up again - i did it years ago and it was a miracle i got it back up and going again (that included reinstalling the OS) so not recommended - it also depends what options are available in the raid rom (i think its called) which you set it up in before you install the OS. From memory, which is bad, the problem was it couldnt recognise one or both the drives.
It depends on your motherboard I guess but for mind it should be ok - running raid and using the same controller to use a ssd drive in AHCI mode - but treat this as my opinion - you should be able to find information on your motherboards site, or intel etc's, site. Or wait for more replies as Im uncertain and more repies means more suggestions.
If it has 2 controllers eg intel and jmicron use the JMICRON if it supports AHCI to be on the safe side.

My problem is this, my motherboard is Biostar TP67B and I have downloaded the sound drivers from the manufacturer website which is realtek high definition audio.However, If i had left my headphone plugged into my front panel jack and when I restart my computer, the headphone icon keeps flickering saying its plugged and unplugged constantly when it is in fact plugged in. I had tinker around a little bit and I have no idea how to fix this problem now. Its going bad to worse as it unplugs itself randomly now. I'm trying to go for a full reinstall of my sound drivers.

A:Headphones Plugging and Unplugging constantly bug

Have you tried a different headphone? Maybe the headphone and not the PC or headphone jack.

If not the headphone, check the connection from the front panel at the motherboard, May be a bad connection there. Reseat (unplug then plug back in) the connector at the motherboard. If it still has problems I would suspect the front panel headphone jack, or the wiring.

Hi all,

Acer 7740g, Windows 7 HE.
I have this annoying problem that when my AC power is plugged or unplugged it makes a beep.
Muting the sound completely helps, but that's sometimes not an option.

I tried the following and no luck:

Editing a registry entry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Sound\Beep and changed it to "No".
Uninstalling the Beep device from my device manager.
Turning off my pc speaker, unfortunately, I didn't find where I can disable it.

My sound card drivers are: Realtek 6.0.1.5969

Anyone has another idea?

Thanks.

Hi all,

I'm at a dorm room with cable internet. It usually works fine, but now if I unplug it, then plug it back, the computer doesn't connect to the internet anymore. Sometimes it says it's acquiring network address, but that doesn't change. The computer connects to the internet fine if I turned on the computer with the cable already plugged in.

Another computer doesn't have this problem with the same cable, always able to connect after being unplugged/plugged. Both computers are on Win XP.

I suspect the Windows firewall has something to do with it, if only because it is turned on the the problematic computer, and not on the other one. I couldn't turn it off, however, because it doesn't let me open up Windows Firewall Settings, giving me the message that the "associated service is not running" and whether or not I could like to start it. If I click "Yes", it simply says it "cannot open Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing service".

Please let me know what the problem might be and what i can try to get it working again. I hope I haven't given too much useless information.. haha. Thanks!

Hello, I've noticed that my computer crashes everytime i unplug or i plug in and USB drive. Today I bought a new USB mouse and when I connected it no crashes were seen, but when my pc installed the last driver, the BSoD appeared once again. I'm using Win7 64b and I really don't know what can I do, I've tried everything like uninstalling all USB drivers and recreate the INFCACHE.1 file, but still nothing. What can I do to solve this?
Thanks in advance.

A:BSoD when plugging/unplugging USB and when installing USB drivers

1) Does it happen with all usb devices or only the mouse?
 
2) Does it happen with all usb ports?
 
3) Does it happen in safe mode?
 
4) Look in device manager - are there any yellow or red symblos?
 
5) Download and install the newest chipset driver for your system. If it's a laptop, get it from the website of your laptop manufacturer. If it's a desktop, you can get it from either the desktop or the mobo manufacturer's website.
 
6) Look for a bios update.

Hi All! Been a while since I've posted, but sitting here reading other's posts, I almost forgot why I logged in!

I have a weird problem with my computer.....a little background:
I didn't turn the computer on for a LONG time....perhaps a year, so one day, I decided to boot it up and it won't boot past the post! So I replaced the MB battery, checked the power supply, replaced the memory...and it booted. But then, I turn it off, and it won't boot again...same problem with it not booting past the mem. post. So being that it was an old computer, I figured I'd just build myself a new machine and use the hard drive as a slave. There are programs on the drive that I want to use that I cannot replace! Well, I tried doing that, but the new computer won't see the drive....it won't even boot with it plugged in. So....

I take the hard drive to another machine that I know works fine, and it boots. Problem solved....so I thought. I turn it off, and try and turn it back on.....nothing.....no beeps, no post....nothing. So I tried changing the power supply, and plug all back in, and it boots. Turn it off, nothing. Long story short, if I unplug the motherboard power cord from the board, and plug it back in, it boots, but if I turn it off, I have to repeat the motherboard plug thing to get it to boot again. I have had the drive checked for viruses, and it's clean.
I have to admit, I am stumped! Any ideas? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciat... Read more

If I try to go into safe mode it loads the files and then I get a BSOD regarding the fbwf.sys.
Using the Windows 7 disc I have been able to get to the System Recovery Options. It finds my install and then blue screens with IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL even before it gets to finding my install.


Other BSODs I know I have seen are regarding the Ntfs.Sys and PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.

I was able to run a mem test on it at one point and it said everything was fine. I would appreciate any help or advice you can give me since I can?t even get to a command prompt or safe mode.

A:Laptop turning off when plugging or unplugging in charging cord

Hi DNGUYEN2252,
Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system?
Does the adapter led stay on and stable or does it go off when connected to the system?
Disconnect the adapter and battery and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds to release any static power. Then try connecting with the adapter only / battery only.
I would first suggest you to try with another power adapter. The current one in use might be shorting the system and hence the system powers off.
If another adapter works fine, then replace the adapter. If the other adapter  also exhibits the same behavior, then replace the DC port - this is the part you would need - http://bit.ly/2kZR8go
If nothing works, I would suspect a faulty motherboard. 
If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.

I have a Dell Vostro 1400 running Vista Home Basic and have had two periods in the laptop's existence where it would mysteriously freeze. You could see everything on the screen, and the power lights were on, but it would not respond except to a hard reboot by holding the power butting down for 5 seconds.

I am going through one of those periods now, and have discovered that the problem happens when I am either plugging or unplugging the AC power adapter, but don't know why. I have been all over the web for a solution, and while it does seem I am not alone with this problem, I have not read a sensible solution yet. My favorite bad answer is "don't unplug your laptop when it's on."

So, does anyone know what it could be? I wanted to look at system logs, and so went into the Event Viewer not even sure what to look for, but didn't see anything that looked like a likely culprit. Please help!

Thanks,

A:laptop freezes when plugging and unplugging AC power adapter

being a member of the Dell Community Forum, I looked there and found this

A lot things happen in Windows when inserting the AC power adapter.

To check if it's a classic CPU lock-up: repeatedly press capslock. If the capslock light doesn't change, there's no live in there.

Assuming the CPU is locked up: It's possible there's a log entry in the system log just before the AC power adapter is inserted. These entries give clues where to look, just before things went sour.

Next try to reproduce it in Safe Mode (press F8 when Windows start) If it's also in Safe Mode - try running an alternative OS (no need to install)

If the problem also shows up here - most likely it's a hardware issue.

Otherwise it's a windows issue - might be driver related.

the "alternate OS thing is a link on the forum web site. Click here to go to that site.

Hope this is some help... Raybro

Do the speakers still work after you have unattached /reattached the mic?

Presuming you are running Windows (as you haven't specified)

Open control panel, then open Sound (depending on your OS and view options you may need to click on the Hardware and Sound option first or similar)

In the sound window, click on the Recording tab.

With the Mic attached how many devices do you see?

Is the Mic on your headset set as Default?

If you remove the mic and reattach (with the sound window open) does the mic get recognised and show back up in this list?

Does it remain as default / enabled?

Urgh. Typical.

Install new case fans after moving 2 HD cages from the front of Corsar 600T case.
Check they run ok. Fine.
Put HD cages back in, one in the space on the bottom of the case beside the PSU.
Fight with the cables to get the HDs connected and the modular PSU cables back into the PSU.

- Attempt to power on. Nothing.
- Check cable, try another power cable. Nothing.
- No fans, no lights, nothing.
- No 'electrical sound' when flipping the switch on the back of the PSU.

Seems I have a 7 year warrant on the PSU and its only about 3 years old. But Corsair RMA system insists that you "try another PSU to verify the problem is the PSU" which is fair enough so off to buy another PSU, probably another Corsair. Hope the RMA system allows for refund rather than replacement, otherwise I'll have 2 PSUs which isn't really much use. I guess I can use this as an opportunity to upgrade to a bigger PSU since 7970 CF, 3 HD, 2 SSD, i7 2600K @ 4.7Ghz, a powered device connected to almost every single USB port is probably getting towards it's limits. I can then stick any replacement HX750 on Ebay or something...

Hello,

I had just bought a G19 keyboard for my wife, we both have windows 7. Of course we first get it, we get giddy with excitement because this looks like an awesome keyboard.

We install the software from the CD then plug it in, it works fine and operates as expected. We plug in a USB flash drive (because it says we can finally do that now) and the keyboard just stops working, i tried to rescan for hardware changes, unplug it and plug it back in.

I notice the processor usage jumps to almost 100%, and after looking at the resource monitor, it's stuck on System Interruption and doesn't go away until I reboot the machine. After that I see this problem it just happens randomly even without any devices plugged in. So I download the latest version of the software from logitech and install it. Works great again, so later I tried to plugin our camera to the keyboard, again, same problems as before, reboot and works fine.

One thing I noticed is that it's showing 2 Logitech G19's in my Device and Printers section with different sets of hardware on it.

So pretty much we cannot plugin any data related devices to the keyboard without it failing. Should I send it back or is it just not working with Data related usb devices?

Any thoughts would be great.

Thanks

A:G19 and Plugging in USB Devices

Are you plugging the USB flash drive into one of the ports on the keyboard or the main system? As far as I am aware (and someone will probably correct me on this), the sockets provided on keyboards are mainly intended so that you can plug a mouse or pen/tablet pad in.

It could also be down to the USB mode. A keyboard is typically a USB 1.0 or 1.1 device (there is no point in it being any faster) and, as such, the port to which it is connected effectively becomes a 1.0 or 1.1 port. This means that any device plugged into the socket(s) on the keyboard will be restricted to the slower speed associated with the USB 1.0 and/or 1.1 revisions. In effect, the maximum speed of a particular port is limited to the slowest device in the chain. If you attach a device that is normally 2.0 rated, such as a flash drive, it can cause your system to slow down whilst it ascertains what data is stored on it.

The reason why you've got 2 instances of the driver is probably because you have installed 2 sets of drivers - one from the accompanying CD and one that you've downloaded. I advise that you uninstall both sets of drivers (reboot after uninstalling) and then reinstall the one you downloaded.

Hey all ^_^

So. My newly built computer is running amazingly well, except that it has begun BSODing when I plug in USB devices. Funnily, nearly all devices work once the computer's done rebooting, but some do not, leading me to finally seek help.

The System: Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Full Retail. The system is a little over a month old?built same day as OS installation.

I really appreciate the help! Thank you in advance.

A:BSOD when plugging in USB devices

Welcome to SevenForums.

These crashes were caused by prl_usb_mng64.sys, a driver used by Parallels Desktop.

This seems to be a common problem which was discussed in their forums, you may find additional information there.
http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=113372

This may fix the issue:





Quote:
In Parallels disable the USB Controller in the Virtual Machine Configuration.
Then:
- Open the device manager.
- Show hidden devices
- Expand 'non-plug and play drivers'
- Double Click 'Parallels USB Device Manager'
- On the 'Driver' Tab, go to the startup section, then select 'Disabled' from the drop down menu.


If that doesn't work you should either remove(uninstall) this program or find a newer updated version.

I have a Comcast Motorola Surfboard rental modem. It works fine, great speeds etc etc. It has no router or bridge support.

I use this modem to connect to the web on my ps3 and PC. What I have been doing is simply unplugging the ethernet cord from one device, and putting it in the other device to switch. But of course things can't be simple...

Every time I switch devices, the modem tries to reconnect and does a cycle where every time it only reaches the "Send" light. So I have to power cycle my modem and wait about a half hour before my connection resumes...

I read something about PPPoE, but Comcast doesn't even use it so that won't help.
 

A:Modem stops working between plugging it into different devices?

You shouldn't need to wait a half hour, but you will need to power cycle the modem. A cheap router would resolve this.

This is so odd. I'm running Windows XP SP2 on Dual core INtel with 1 gb memory.

I've installed a front USB panel that has 4 ports in front and 2 more on the PCI card which it's attached to. (added on peripheral).

I can deal with the "this device can run faster if plugged into a 2.0 device" but what is really frustrating is that if I plug in 2 or more USB devices. At least one of them won't work.

This computer is in my family room and wirelessy networked to my other computer in another room. I use a Motorola USB device to connect for the purpose of printing stuff off the printer in the other room.

If I have too many USB devices plugged in - there doesn't seem to be enough power to allow the wireless connection - resulting in not being able to print.

This isn't the only issue. I have some software that requires the USB "key" in order to work. If I need to use that software using the "key" and then I need to print something from that particular software to the remote printer - I have to save it to my desktop firsti - then disconnect the "key" and then I can print.

Do I need a bigger PS? I have a 500W now. I thought that would be big enough. Perhaps the USB issue isn't related to that at all? Is there some way to regulate how much power is assigned to USB devices?

Since my computer is in a desk against a wall - it's very difficult to plug and unplug stuff into the rear slots. Hence the install... Read more

I am currently configuring a PC with the following setup:Dell Precision T1700 with a E3-1270 3.50GHz CPU and 16GB RAM
Dell AC511 USB Sound bar
USB microphone
line-in and line-out are used by an external device
Both USB externals are installed and working.
In the sound manager, I have configured the recording devices (line-in and USB mic) as followed:Line-in: 'Listen to this device' is checked and the playback device is set to the USB Sound bar
USB mic: 'Listen to this device' is checked and the playback device is set to the line-out (to the external audio device)
This setup is working fine UNTIL I unplug one of the USB devices (mic or sound bar) and leave it unplugged for more than 10 minutes. After plugging the device back in, my playback settings are 'forgotten'.
I can hear sounds through the sound bar coming from Windows but not from the line-in (even though the settings haven't changed). The mic is inaudible in the external audio device, even though I can see the level indicator in the sound manager picking up the sound.

The problem is solved when I choose a different playback device under 'Listen to this device', click OK, and then choose the original playback device. Only then can I hear the sound again.

So to recap, if a USB device is unplugged for more than 10 minutes, I have to manually reset the playback settings, even though the settings were still correct.

Is it possible to solve this problem so that it isn't necessary for me to reset the settings if a USB... Read more

A:Unplugging USB sound bar or USB microphone causes playback problems

If the device is declared as the default and it's unplugged (removed from the system), it can no longer be the default and Windows will pick the default or clear the setting if no other device is present. In the Sound window, you can see that Windows will not allow a device that isn't plugged in to be set as the default device either--"Set as default" is greyed out.

I recently bought a Dell inspiron 5559 (June 1, 2017). I then noticed that whenever I play audio like music or videos and plug the adapter out, I would hear a crackling sound, sounds as if its coming from the speakers. When I pause the sound and unplug then play audio the sound is made so I'm guessing the problem seems to exist whether I play audio or not. No matter where I plug the adapter out, it makes that sound. I'm worried that it might destroy the laptop, or that this is a defect that might start a fire if its a lack in how the adapter was made. It is a 45 w adapter according to what is labelled on it. sometimes i get a message saying "adapter is not recognized. system performance will be impacted etc" and I guess it happens if I don't plug the cord in properly? or is it not suppose to say that at all? Nonetheless, my main worry is the sound the laptop makes when I unplug the adapter. It goes on for maybe 3 or 4 seconds and sounds like a radio transceiver. Please comment if you know what this means, Thank you.

When I plug in my usb mic, the sound from my speakers or headphones shuts off automatically. This guy had the same problem but I did not understand what DvK01 was trying to say.

"there shouldn't be any need to to spnd a lot of money on any external sound card
what happens when you plug a USB microphone in, is the OS thinks that it is a complete USB sound card and turns off the internal sound system
your only cure is to either use a USB combined microphone & headset or use a Mike plugged in to the small mike socket - (What does this mean?)

You might find that the sound settings is automatically switching the sound to use the mike as a communications device, not as normal input
But it isn't uncommon for a cheap USB sound device.microphone to have such poor drivers that are only really intended to be used for communications purposes ( Skype or other VOIP systems) and you haven't got a passthrough set up so mike & sound cannot be used at same time in normal use"
 

A:No Sound from Speakers when plugging in USB MIC

Are you saying that I will not be able to hear sound from my speakers using this mic? Is an external sound card even an option?

also, the mic doesn't seem to be recording at all and I don't know why.

When he said usb combined headset, there is a headset jack on the mic and I can hear through that but I still need to get my stereo system speakers to work so that I can have the music playing in the background while I sing through the mic.

I was watching a streaming video with low sound so I thought I would plug my earbuds in to hear better. I plugged it in and heard sound for a split second then nothing. I unplugged the buds only to find that there is no sound at all through the speakers now.

I have a laptop Dell Inspiron N5110. I "upgraded" to Windows 10 sometime in July, I believe.

I tried rebooting to see if that would fix the problem. Nope, it didn't work.

Any ideas or thoughts? Thanks
 

A:Plugging in headphones, now no sound at all!

Found the fix on another forum.

Here it is:

Check the Sound devices listing in the Device Manager. What is the status that is shown for IDT HD Audio? Does it show as working OK, or is there an error code (post the code).

If it shows working OK, RIGHT click on the IDT entry to highlight it and then LEFT click "Uninstall" DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the audio. This fixes any corruptions and hopefully will fix yours.

This fixed the problem though I don't know what caused it in the first place.

All is right in the world, again.

A mod can mark this issue as solved.

Hi,

I posted some threads about this on adobe ( thought it was flash player) and firefox forums because the issue is mainly no sound on youtube videos.

Adobe Community: Audio Issues - Sound stops on youtube vid after a few seconds. Please Help?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/qu...=a&s=&r=0&as=s


I would be watching the video and then all of sudden it would crash or the audio would stop, especially if when I tried to move the cursor to ahead or behind to different spot in the video, or if I had multiple youtube videos opened and paused. I tried all kinds of things (microsoft fix it, updating drivers, even restoring windows to an earlier version), but after troubleshooting I realized it was not only firefox or chrome, or youtube videos (the videos would still play btw you could watch it just no audio).

Then I realized that unplugging and re plugging the 3.5mm speaker cable back into the jack magically made the sound come back....for a while until it happened all over again.

I'm a bit confused about soundcards and what the next steps for me are.

When I open my device manager and look at "Sound video and game controllers" I see 4 options:
1)AMD High Definition Audio Device
2) Bluetooth Audio Device
3) High Definition Audio Device
4) Intel (R) Display Audio

I'm not sure what this means, if I have 4 sound cards or if they are conflicting somehow.
I tried to update drivers on each one. No change. I've tried "resta... Read more

A:No Sound - Have to keep re-plugging in speaker connector

The AMD High definition Audio Device is audio from the Video card for HDMI Audio.
Bluetooth audio device is what it is some Bluetooth attached audio device
High definition audio device is your PC's sound device, but is not the correct sound driver.
Intel Display Audio is the Intel HDMI audio from your i7 CPU.

First the High Definition Audio Device, that is the generic basic function sound driver installed by Windows. You need to install the correct sound driver (which may fix your problem). Go to ASUS downloads for your motherboard and get the correct sound driver (could be RealTek, IDT, etc).

Second, the Bluetooth may be interfering. After you get the correct sound driver installed, if you are still having problems, disable the Bluetooth see if it is interfering.

Third, normally you do not have both the internal CPU video and a separate video card enabled. Most BIOS will auto detect and if there is a separate video card installed it will select that and disable the other. However, this is probably not the problem.

Hi all,

I have a curious problem, which I'm not able to solve on my own although I've a couple of solutions. Here is the problem:

When I plug my earphones in, its recognized that something is plugged in, the sound output changes, but I hear nothing through my earplugs.

I'm sure that: the hardware is working correctly (I have a dual OS system, and there everything is working fine). I have already reinstalled the drivers, reinstalled the HD Audio manager from Realtek including their drivers. One time, I had it working, but with the next reboot it did not work anymore.

In my sound settings everything seems OK, at least when it was working the same devices were listed and asssigned as standard devices so I dont think that the problem lies there. Anybody has an idea what to do or how to solve this?

I got a really horrible LogiTech Headset Microphone that I got only yesterday, and the first time that I tried to use it it doesn't record my voice AT ALL, even when I have done basically EVERYTHING it told me to do in the manual.
The Microphone plays my voice through the speakers when i'm talking into it, but it doesn't RECORD my voice, which is what I want it to do.

Now, I have a different problem. After I took out the microphone there is no sound coming from my computer speakers. I don't know what to do.
All sounds from my speakers are up on full blast. Nothing is muted.
The sound only works through my stupid LogiTech headphones. But the sound is all echoey.
And my speakers are most certainly NOT broken. They worked fine before I plugged in this stupid microphone that doesn't even work.

I was trying to get my microphone to record for around 35 - 40 minutes, but it doesn't do anything on any programs!
I sure hope I still have my receipt for it! But it doesn't solve the speaker problems :(

A:No Sound From Speakers after plugging in bad Microphone

Hi WeeGee and welcome to TSF

On the recording your voice part, go to control panel and pick Sound and Audio Devices, pick Voice tab, under voice recording, pick volume. At this point, pick the options tab and make sure the Sterio mix is checked. This will add a control the the volume group that you will need for recording.

On the speakers not working after removing the head set. Note this, when you plug you headset in, the plug opens the contacts to your speakers so they will not work. When you unplug the headset, the switch contacts in the plugin port is supposed to make contact, thus restoring volume etc back to your normal system. Try pluging and unplugging the headset to get that part working again.

Be sure that you are using some sort of recording software to get the recording to work. Windows has a short one that you can use, or other recording software might be needed for long samples.

Hope this works for you,
