Q: [SOLVED] Audio Errors, Drivers, Codecs,

Hello all, and thanks for your time.

I have just recently reformatted my computer, and I installed WindowsXP along with Service Pack3. I have updated every driver, however sound does not want to work.
I have tried installing C-Media, and Realtek AC'97. Neither have worked so far.
I have attached pictures of various related parts on my computer. Hopefully these will be sufficient.
I also have attached the HTML source of Belarc Advisor. This should cover all of the computer specs you may/may not require.

Thanks all for your time and patience. (Patience might come to play in a bit )

*I can't attach my picture, it's 1.97 MB, and the limit is 1.96.

Thanks again!

As thread title says, downloaded a few films to my girlfriends laptop - when I try and play them the video plays fine but there is no audio. Downloaded K Lite codec pack which I have on my PC (films play fine on there) and now when I play the file the video doesn't play right (skips etc) and weird crackling noises come from the speakers. Deleted the codec pack and back to square one ie. video fin but no audio.

Hi all,
I need some help: I am trying troubleshoot my Audio Codecs in Windows Media Player (on a Windows 7/64 bit system) as a part of troubleshooting a problem with another piece of software I'm using -- AVS4You Audio Editor --  I believe something with the codecs or related issue is causing that AVS issue to hang, and their support seems to think so also
Whenever I open Windows Media Player and go to Help --> About Windows Media Player --> and try to click on the "Technical Support Information" to view my codecs, WMP always freezes up and will never load the next screen so I can't ever troubleshoot or otherwise view my codecs. I've tried about 10 times now and it always hangs on that step.
I've tried all of these and *none* of them have worked -
1. Uninstalled and Reinstalled Windows Media Player from the Control Panel/Windows Components
2. Clean reboots with and without power cycling
3. Clean all spyware and viruses - using Spybot and Avast
4. Cleaned and repaired Windows Registry with CCleaner and AVS Registry cleaner
5. Repaired Windows Media Player with Microsoft FIX-IT tools for WMP and Codec Repair
6. Physically found all *.acm codec files in Windows/System32, deleted them and forced WMP to find and re-scan
7. Hacked out all the references to "codec" and "Windows Media" that I could find.
8. Ran "sfc /scannow" from the CMD prompt - it either finishes with no errors,  or errors out at 24% and doesn't finish
I'm a total loss on how else to repair and cle... Read more

A:Windows Media and AVS Audio Editor - how to repair audio codecs

If you have a "codec" problem of any sort...the simple solution is to install an appropriate codecs package.  The original codec package installed with WMP is not adequate for all types of video files.
Using any "registry cleaner" is definitely a wrong step.
Your errors with sfc /scannow...are a source of concern, IMO.
I'm trying to understand...why you think that removing all evidence of codecs...is a step forward to resolving anything.  Do you know what codecs are and why they are needed?

Hi everyone.

Before I start blabbering on about my major problem. I just wanna say that any help right now is so unbelievably appreciated you have no idea lol.

Ok. *just letting you know - I have Microsoft Windows XP*

Our comp dude did something to our computer which is basically making it unable to download and save new programs to the computer. (I think he deleated whatever lets you save programs to the computer..or something because this has NEVER happened before and he didnt even like the idea of downloading programs off the net anyways)

I have been trying to download this program called 123 dvd converter, and naturally I want to download the free trial before I buy it, to see if its the right program for me.
But it just wont install. **before our comp dude did something to our computer.. I had been download many free trials before... and this had NEVER happened before.

Then, all of a sudden iTunes wont work.
So, I uninstalled it and started the downloading again.
But, the same sort of error messages were popping up...in a result - not letting it save.

I print-screened some of the errors to give you an idea of what i mean -


123 DVD converter errors -

LAME, Ogg Vorbis, Monkey Audio, APE, AAC (which I use in iTunes
So many audio codecs out there and their various programs, but how do these stand up to each other? Are there many differences between them, which is the most popular and what do the experts use? Thanks for any advice.

A:How do the following audio codecs compare please..

LAME uses their own version of the lossy MP3 format (i think.. can't remember)
AAC is tonnes better than MP3, since the compression algorithm are audibly better for it
Ogg vorbis is supposed to be like MP3, but i haven't heard what they sound like yet
monkey audio and APE i haven't heard of either.

Nothing beats fully uncompressed 24bit/48k/stereo .wav or .aif files... or the original multitrack files

the higher the sample rate/lower compression the better the sound, but it does chew up your hdd like nothing..

think of it this way, if you can't hear the difference, then there is no difference to you, but if you can hear it then you can tell whats the difference.. (not trying to pull a Yoda here )

Hey all,

I installed the K-Lite codec pack last week to fix a problem with video playback in Sibelius 7 (music notation software). It worked, and I was able to import the video, however since then I have been experiencing audio glitches whenever I play video/audio files, or whenever audio of any sort is played on my computer.

Here's an example of the extreme it reaches that I recorded: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/44624848/Bug sample.mp3

I have uninstalled K-Lite, reinstalled my Realtek drivers, tried an external sound interface, tried a different codec pack (CCCP), but nothing seems to help. I've also tried system restore, but for some reason I cannot work out, no system restore points exist since I first encountered the error.

I've also found that running my ASUS WLAN Utilities program for my desktop's wireless card causes the system to hang, so I have uninstalled it. The system is also pretty laggy on boot, but speeds up after a few minutes. Has anyone got an idea as to how to go about fixing this? I'm trying to put off doing a fresh windows install, as I require my computer to be available for work pretty much constantly! Thanks!

Ok, so I had problems with codec packs and such, so I searched here and found that "they are evil". So my question would be: how to get rid of the stuff installed right now and which codecs and where should I get.

A:Video/Audio Codecs

Codec packs are indeed evil.

Firstly, ignore DivX completely. Use the latest sable binary of XviD instead... http://www.koepi.org/xvid.shtml

You can get away with not installing Real Player (if you hate it as much as I do) by using Real Alternative... http://www.free-codecs.com/reviews/Real_Alternative.htm

The same goes for quicktime and quicktime alternative... http://www.free-codecs.com/download/QuickTime_Alternative.htm,
though it's worth knowing that you CAN get Quicktime WITHOUT itunes...

There are obviously other video codecs, but these are really the ones that are used mainly. In terms of audio, well I'm not much on audio codecs. I tend to just download what I need as and when I need it, which at the moment means I have a codec for pretty much everything I come across

This might actually be quite a useful thread to be honest, especially if someone can add a free DVD codec to the mix, and some audio.

A:Extra Audio Codecs

Welcome to TSG....

Try this it is usually overlooked:

Since windows was re-installed the thing that has to be done is to install all of the special drivers like chipset, buss, network, audio, video and others, they can be installed in any order you wish and can be found on the system recovery disk set for the computer if it is an OEM like Compaq, Dell etc. or if you do not have a recovery disk set the drivers can be found on the manufacturers web site for either the motherboard or the manufacturer of the computers web site. You can download these drivers and burn to a CD-R and then install those following instructions to reboot when asked.

I've got a small problem that has mushroomed into a big unwieldy thing resulting in me reinstalling Windows Xp and even formatting, and yet the problem persists.

For a while before, whenever I played movies on my Windows Media Player, it would play for a few short minutes and give a blue screen error message. I've asked for help on this site before on this matter, and I was instructed to install the new XP patches and run a lot of virus scans, also to use 'HijackThis' logs to find a cure to the problem. Although the moderator did everything she could to make the log come out 'clean' at the end, the problem yet STILL persists.

Yet I have uncovered some important data now. The BSOD (Blue Screen) doesn't come anymore once I play the movies, it used to come before but now the computer just abruptly restarts itself (This started occuring after I took the moderator's advice and did all that she asked). I cannot remember entirely what codes were written on the BSOD, but I do remember this specifically. It said 'IRQL_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL' every time after I played a movie.

And now I've realized it's not any movie, it's only movies that require the codec(s) DivX for sure, but I'm not sure about 'Xvid'. Anything that requires DivX to play it will cause the computer to restart itself after playing it for about 10 seconds. Anything that doesn't require DivX will play normally without any problems.

I am running a Dell Latitude c640 with Windows XP and things were going ok with the video until I had to reinstall windows and now it acts like I'm watching a webcast over a dialup connection...VerY BAD. My sound never has worked too great.....I could hear things fine but I need to crank my WMP 11 up to the max and I had to do the same in the Volume Controls (everything is as high as it'll go) and it still wasn't that loud. I thought these problems were because of WMP so I tried quicktime, Realplayer, VLC......and just got the same problem.

I checked the driver download page on Dell.com and tried a sound card driver and to my surprise IT WORKED but then when I rebooted everything froze and the only way to get things going was to do a System Restore I've tried to download other stuff to help me through Dell.com and I make sure to check the compatibility before I do but I still get the same problem. I have tried a program called Driver Genius and download what it recommends but still have a problem with my pc freezing.

Does anyone know what I can do? I am so confused......I have no idea what to do (what else is new?) I keep trying everything I can think of but it just leads me back to do System Restores......Oh what fun!!

Hi all. Not sure if this is a W7 thing, or a Vista thing...

I have a wired network with several computers. Right now, I am dealing with two: my W7 Ult. SP-1 machine, which is .100, and my Vista SP-1 machine, which is .102

I can browse to the Vista machine from my W7 machine, and share files and folders. Except, this one situation that is really bugging me. In my Vista shared folder, I have two .mov files. One has the wav/PCM-16 audio codec, and the other has the AAC codec. They both play fine in Vista, but I can only see the first from my W7 machine. The .mov with the AAC codec is not visible. I have not yet played around with other codecs; I have only dealt with these two for now.

Anyone have any idea why this would happen?

I'm having the same maddening journey it sounds like most others. Successes initially with several properly installed (and de-installed) codecs, but finally absolutely no signs left in the registry. Tried both Acer and RealTek. I am starting to be convinced that some of these flaky "driver tool sites" have actually created a worm or trojan to infect certain machines. I like the ones who have automated page scripts which "update" the driver signature to the current date. Duh. I was born at night, but not LAST night.

Acer wants money to check it out. I only hope to be able to correctly diagnose the RealTek ALC268 chip. Any ideas??

A:Realtek High Definition Audio Codecs Issue

Hi. . .

I need to get some system info from you. The easiest way is for you to run the Sysnative BSOD File Collection App -


Please attach the resulting zip file to your next post.

I also need to know your system's manufacturer and the product number.

What was the reason that you updated the driver?

Have you tried to roll the driver back to the previous version?

Please provide the Realtek link that you are now using/have used to update the driver.

Have you tried the Realtek audio codec supplied by your system manufacturer's (OEM) support site? Usually, OEMs will modify the Realtek codec and it is the modified one that ends up working.

Go to the OEM support site, download the Realtek audio codec, install it snd see if there is any difference.

First and foremost - ALWAYS create a system restore point before updating drivers.


Regards. . .

I wiped Vista and clean installed XP. I need an XP version of the audio drivers for the Sigmatel device that comes on the Emachines T3604 motherboard. I went on the Emachines website, and the only drivers there were for Vista, as it was the originally installed OS. I also asked two live support agents, and they cannot help because they say they have no XP drivers in their database.

At first, I accidentally installed the vista drivers and I got sound, but when I went to the Sigmatel option in control panel, it said "Unable to connect to COM interface." And when I added the volume icon to taskbar, I would turn the volume up or down and it would make the beep noise like when you don't have an audio device installed. I uninstalled the vista drivers and have been looking for an XP version.

I will be your best friend if you find the seemingly nonexistent drivers I'm looking for.

Hi jj71787 and welcome to TSF.

Can you post the make and model of your computer. If you are unsure what your specs are, download and run Speccy, then when it's generated the information (about 10 seconds) go File>Save Snapshot, and attach that .speccy file as well.

Hi, Right I have xp pro on my laptop, but when I tried to play a song on it earlier it said that "Windows media player could not play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, It might be in use by another program or might not be functioning properly"

I checked other programs were not using, and went to the control panel and to sounds and audio devices.

The volume tab states NO AUDIO DEVICE with all areas shaded so cannot select anything.

The sounds tab has the sound schemes of NO SOUNDS and WINDOWS DEFAULT.

The Audio tab has
Sound Playback (default device) No playback devices
Sound recording (default device) No recording devices
MIDI music playback (def. dev.) No MIDI playback devices.
Voice playback under VOICE tab No playback devices
Voice recording No recording devices.

But when I go into the Hardware tab I get

Audio Codecs
Device properties
Manufacturer: (standard systems devices)
Location: Unknown
Device Status: This device is working properly,

Legacy Audio drivers
Device Type: Sound, Video and game controllers
Manufacturer: (Standard system devices)
Location: Unknown
Device Status: This device is working properly,
and this carries on for the rest in the list.

Can any one tell me where I can find them and what folder that they should actually be in or either that that is a lost cause and where I can obtain more drivers to put on to ... Read more

You could go to the manufacturer's web site look up your laptop and download the correct drivers from there then install them.

I have been going nuts trying to find audio drivers for a Hp Pavilion a620 computer. I believe it had Realtek Sound controler on board. After spending much time searching the internet -- going 'round in circles, actually and getting things like "driver restore", "driver tuner", "driver wizard" and other useless downloads, I have not been able to find the audio driver I need.

I know that this is an old computer, but is more than satisfactory to watch movies, listen to music and connect to the internet from the basement study room.

I thought this should be easy, but I guess I need some help.

Here I am again asking for help . After I reinstalled windows xp on my pc and did all the updates , now I need audio devices because when I go to CONTROL PANEL->SOUNDS, SPEECH, AUDIO DEVICES->DEVICE VOLUME is on low and gray so I can not move the volume to hear out the speekers. So I did a "Sound Troubleshooter" and this is what I found: "Have you installed signed drivers for your sound device?" I don't think I have it. I went online looking for it, but is for sale, where can I find free drivers? Thank you.

I have a friend who formated her hard drive and did a clean install of Windows 98. Now her speakers won't work. I tried removing the sound device from device manager, but windows can't find the sound card driver. She has an old computer and there are no downloads available from the computer maker's site. I've searched microsoft but couldn't find a download. The computer is up to date on Windows update.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Hi all,
This is my first post on the forums so I apologize if I do not provide all the information needed.

My situation is this:
I have a Lenovo T60, 1951/44U. I have installed a new hard drive and installed a copy of Win XP Pro. I downloaded the drivers from the Lenovo website for the ethernet, the video, BIOS update, Chipset, Touchpad, PC Doctor, Hard Drive Analyzer and the audio which shows up as "Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus". Here is what the file information is listed as:

Release Date: 2006/11/17

File link File size File description

77a224ww.exe 6,811,016 Audio driver

After restarting Windows I was still prompted via the New Hardware Wizard for the Audio Device and for the SM Bus. Device Manager does see the audio device and the SM Bus but is not able to locate a driver for either. There is also an Unkown Device in the Device Manager and I am not sure what that is.

I did install all the updates from Microsoft including SP3 for XP Pro. At no point either prior or after the updates did I get any audio other than the system 'beep'. Any help in figuring this out would be truly appreciated. Thank you!!!!!

A:[SOLVED] Audio & SM Bus Drivers for a Lenovo T60

and welcome to the Forum

Did you install the CHipset driver first? That should take care of the SM Bus controller error. Look again to be sure they do not have something like Notebook System Software . . if so, that should be the first thing to install, then the Chipset.

The Unknown Device is usually a modem

Ok, so I made a earlier post about this issue to no resolve. So I'm going to explain everything and hope for a answer.

A few weeks ago my computer got the BSOD and we got a new hard drive ( it was diagnosed as a hard drive problem ) We then reinstalled windows with the original disks all nifty and good. But apparently a few drivers had yellow ? / ! marks. We fixed the first 3, then I fixed the 4th, ( Ethernet controller ) through this forum. Found out I needed the 10/100 driver. So now the internet works. Now, the present issue is 1 driver ( Multimedia Controller ) Has a yellow ? / ! and ( Multimedia Audio Controller ) has just a yellow !. So, I've tryd 'about' everything. Here's a list of things I've done and outcomes:

1) Downloaded AC97 driver off realtek.com / RESULTS: BSOD

2) Tryd to update via the ' Device Manager ' / RESULTS: 1/2 through, BSOD

3) Downloaded via safe mode / RESULTS: Success! But when I went to restart and get to normal mode, I get the BSOD, and have to run earlier working configuration to get back on.

I've tryd to use the 'actual' sound card, ( Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 ) and the audio drivers off the dell site for my service tag have ended up saying " No Sound Blaster Audio Card Detected " SO, I'm in a real fuss trying to find the solution.

BIOS version A07

A:Solved: All audio drivers not working

Read other 16 answers

Okay, this started off as me trying to update my audio drivers and degenerated into some sort of driver hell.

I determined in a previous thread that my sound card was an "Intel 82801BA(M) ICH2 - AC'97 Audio Controller [B-4]" (this is from a previous thread).

I tried to install the driver that yto_daniel suggested to no avail. So then I downloaded this program called DriverMagic Pro which is supposed to automatically detect your hardware and d/l the correct driver for it. I downloaded the driver it told me to, tried to run the install (it was called Realtek AC'97 I think) and my computer just shutdown and restarted.

After the restart it went to that blue screen before you log on to check C:. It said a bunch of files first allocation units or something were off so they were truncated (don't know what this really means).

Now when I log into windows there is no audio, I can't even run sndvol32 because it says no mixer devices available. On top of that, for some reason my CD drives are no longer recognizable. When go into device manager I get the yellow (!) next to three items under DVD/CD-ROM drives:
Generic DVD-ROM SCSI CdRom Device

On each of them it says that Windoes cannot load the device driver. It's a bit strange though because I only have 2 CD-Roms, a normal CD-Rom and a DVD-R/RW.

If anyone can help please do, I'm really in a jam here. I tried system restore but it didn't work either.
