Preferred Solution: BSOD when not listening to mic on high volume or in skype/discord/ts..

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


I have a Blue Yeti Microphone, and it's quality only shows through within recording programs such as Audacity. How come my microphone quality is not the same standard when I talk on Skype, Discord and TeamSpeak? I have the settings modified for these programs so that it is at optimal settings, but the general quality of the microphone isn't heard. Although there is a difference between the quality of the Blue Yeti and my previous microphones, it sounds completely different from recording programs AND how it should sound as a high end microphone.

A:Sound Quality On Skype/Discord (Voice chat systems)

Quality relies on the amount of data throughput. Most chat programs place a priority on speed (ie: low latency) as opposed to quality, so the amount of data used for the audio stream are reduced.

As you noted, the quality of the mic is noticeable over your previous mic. So the mic quality isn't wasted.

hi everyone.

I need help to find out if this is legit or not.

i got udp listening on random port over 50000. Maybe its random for me , lets just say different.
I tried to find out what triggers is and with the help of processexplorer i found out its svchost.exe and for that pid i had like 12 services and few other ports. i start stopping services to find out what is making svchost.exe listen to that port and once i killed IP Helper service the port was closed. i tried to check my version of iphlpsvc.dll file with the microsoft one and and think is legit . at laest the size for the version matches .


mine is version : 6.1.7601.17964 with size of 556 KB (569*344 bytes)

i am on windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64bit

i got Eset Smart Security 7.0 updated.

The thing is i got strange ip's trying to send me inbound traffic to that udp port all the time. i have set my friewall to ask me for each connection that do not have a rule specified.

first question is how those strange ips (i think thats ips of home users not some microsoft ips) knows about my udp port each time when is different. i guess i somehow notify them .

how can i go deeper and find out whats going on ? if this is something legit or lets say i am a zombie of a botnet ?
any help is very appreciated.

btw i scanned my iphkosvc.dll with some scanonline virus site and found nothing.

A:Udp listening on high port

Here is an article someone wrote about port 50000

Perhaps someone is trying to communicate with a malware on the computer? Being a botnet is definitely possible. You might want to head over to the malware removal forums to see if the advisers there can help you identify this problem and perhaps remove any possible malware on the computer.

Today my computer blue screened 6 times today. I've had no blue screens since I built my PC more than a year ago (not a single one). But recently its been causing major issues.

Some of the blue screens occurred whilst i had the League of Legends Client, Discord and Chrome open. Some occurred whilst the only thing i had open were Discord and Google Chrome (only tab was Twitch.tv).

All of my drivers are updated: Sound Drivers, Network Drivers, Graphics Drivers, System Drivers, Mouse and Keyboard. (Checked in Device Manager)

I ran a registry check and cleaned all registry errors.
I ran an anti-virus scan. (computer is completely clean.)
I ran an anti-malware scan. (computer is completely clean.)
I then uninstalled malware-bytes.
I ran a memory test (No Errors)
I ran a "sfc /scannow" in cmd.exe. (No integrity violations)

After all of those, it still blue screened.

I recently bought a new jack microphone to stream with. While the microphone works perfectly in Skype, everywhere else it has very weird volume changes.
If I keep the microphone about 5 cm away from my mouth my voice is almost inppossible to hear, while if i put it closer by 1 cm, there is a huge volume boost and everything works perfectly. I know for sure that the microphone works, because I tried it with my phone, and, again with Skype, without any problems.
I also tried updating the drivers, as well as disabling all the Windows enhancements, but the problem persists
Thank you in advance,

Whenever you make video call on skype with friends your microphone volume just automatically changes by itself i will turn it up all the way to 80/100 and it always ends up going down to 20/100 and then your friends won't hear you.i also faced this kind of problem so here is an easy solution.

When you using Skype or MSN
Go to your Webcam and Mic/Audio setup and uncheck the box where it says to automatically adjust mic volume.
and your problem would be solved take care hope you like it.

if you think this is a Skype issue, think again. Here are the steps to reproduce this problem:
1. Upgrade your Dell Inspiron laptop to Windows 10,
2. Start using Skype
3. Hear complaints from others that they can't hear you.
4. Use Skype test call and notice you barely hear yourself.
5. Reinstalling Realtek drivers, downgrading Skype etc won't help.

If you think this is Skype issue please provide me an answer, why do only Dell users having this issues?
Here are links from Skype forums where several different people complained about this error:

A:After upgrading to Windows 10, Skype microphone volume is too low

I am having the same issue.Any solutions ?

Read other 8 answers

A similar story to a few other posts. Very low volume outgoing using the internal Mic in a Skype call.- Brand new XPS15 9530- Immediate upgrade to Win 10- Windows update and Dell updates applied and up to date- Audio drivers show Realtek HD Audio, Skype up to date.
Skype microphone showing very low volume even with all settings to max (+30db, 100%). Calls to Test Call return nothing or very quiet voice. Control panel, Sounds, Recording shows almost no movement in the display unless you shout or tap the Mic area above the screen. Playing with all the various enhancement options both in Control panel, Sounds, Recording and Dell Audio don't seem to have any effect. However I think I've seen "Listen to this device" and Voice Recorder work fine. A possible temporary fix is to go to Control Panel, Device manager, Sound Video and Games controllers, Update Driver, Browse, Pick and choose the generic High Definition Audio Device. This is not really a long term solution but does seem to work correctly.I'm not certain yet whether the problem is Dell hardware, Windows 10, Skype or the Realtek drivers. But more or less out of the box the combination seems to be currently broken and unusable. Please investigate and find a fix. It should not be hard to duplicate the problem.

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.

Some generic advice.

If you are overclocking STOP. return to the default settings at least for now.
If you are running a RAID update its driver.

A:BSOD While Listening To Music

It appears that this install of windows is counterfeit, your Product ID matches a Lenovo OEM_SLP key while you have a custom built computer. This is only possible through an exploit that bypasses the windows activation process.

Please purchase a legal copy of windows, format your drive and then re install using the new legal copy. We do not support piracy in any form on this forum as well as the exploits that are used to bypass the activation process often are the source of the problem with these installs and renders the troubleshooting process utterly moot.

I want to use gpedit or something to prevent my mic volume from changing at all (I want it forced 25% no matter what)

but NO Matter What I do. Skype keeps changing it all over the place! and I already disabled "automatically adjust microphone volume" in the option

But it doesnt do anything.. It keeps changing anyways.

Can I use gpedit and set a policy that prevents any program at all from changing the microphone volume?

Nothing seems to work.. I end up dragging the slider to 25% constantly fighting with it to keep the volume from getting too loud or quiet!!

note this only happens while IN a call.

Solved... By reverting to an older version of skype.. No more microphone changes! (skype 6.3)

Anyone else with this problem probably should try that as well.

I've been having BSOD's on and off for the past 6 months or so.
I know a fair bit about computers so I took the liberty of trying to fix it myself.

The computer is a little over a year old, and has only had the RAM upgraded since i purchased it.

Recently I've been getting a LOT of bluescreens, but annoyingly so, the errors have not been consistent. The computer would crash and I would research into it, it would crash again and a different error would appear!

Using the guide on BSOD posting i've compressed the crash folder down

If someone could take a look at it and suggest why the errors are occurring it would be greatly appreciated.

Please DELL update the shipped Realtek sound driver for Dell Inspiron 7737 and others that have this problem to the needed version "Realtek High Definition Audio Version" instead of "Realtek High Definition Audio Version" or lower!

Finally fixed this. NONE of the solutions above worked for me. I have an Dell Inspiron 7737 that has Realtek High Definition audio. The latest drivers from DELL or latest I could download from Realtek site ("Realtek High Definition Audio Version" / "Realtek High Definition Audio Version") didn't make a difference. Skype microphone was not usable (I had to literally speak in the microphone - 1 cm away to be usable).

PREVIOUS ANNOYING SOLUTION (just in case the real solution doesn't work for everyone): previously I went in device manager, update driver, "let me choose" / "pick from available"... then selected "High definition audio" - so the generic driver from Microsoft. That fixed the problem but realtek specific things like jack sensing didn't work anymore so it was annoying. Also every now and then (when windows update happened I think) it reverted back to the broken Realtek driver and had to do this all over again or simply choose "rollback driver" once instead of update and then it would pin the driver to the generic "High definition audio" one.

Hi guys,

I just finished building my new pc and got it up and running today, but it has bluescreened six or seven times since I've been using it.
I installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on it last night and the BSOD will pop up after 10 minutes of browsing or doing light work or even after playing a couple hours of Skyrim. Very random. I looked over some of the dump files to see a pattern but I think there are multiple things causing the BSOD.
All of the hardware is new and this is my first time building a pc, though I am fairly certain that all of the hardware components are put together correctly, so I'm not sure if I need to upgrade a certain driver or what.
My specs are listed under the profile and the dump files and health report are attached.
Thanks ahead of time!

Well Skyrim is known to have problems on some systems, but yours is blamed on win32k.sys. It is causing a memory exception.

One way to fix it is to update to sp-1

Hmm...Just add 4 gigs of ram this weekend and according to crystal disk info the hard drive with my OS has error on it.

A:Why did I get this BSOD error while gaming and listening to a stream?

Welcome to SF .
You best bet is to remove those last added sticks and see if the issues persists.
If you are reluctant physically remove them you can at least test your RAM.

Testing the RAM:

Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial "If you have errors"
Test the RAM with Memtest86+ for at least 7-10 passes. It may take up to 22 passes to find problems. Make sure to run it once after the system has been on for a few hours and is warm, and then also run it again when the system has been off for a few hours and is cold.

When done with the testing procedure take a picture and upload it here.

About two hours ago I got a BSOD while browsing with Chrome and listening to music (foobar2000). I had a Thunderbird, TweetDeck, Skype, uTorrent, Speedfan, Rainmeter and probably some more stuff running in the background. My antivirus software is Microsoft Security Essentials. Roughly a week ago I had another BSOD with about the same programs running and I think the error was the same. I'm using a Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OEM which was installed about 2 weeks ago.

Also, sometimes when I unplug my mouse from the USB the screen becomes black for a couple of seconds (I believe dwm.exe restarts for some reason) and then returns to normal. Could it be the mouse or a driver?

My specs:

I runned memtest and it always passed it...when i play games or listen to musik or do something else it never happens.....Just when the computer is idle and rarely when i am browsing...The most interseting thing is that i used to have XP on my machine and it never crashed in the beginning and it all went well 2-3 months without crashing before that same problem started.Then i installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 and it worked without BSOD for months and then it started to happen now, too...sometimes 2-3 days past without any problems and then sometimes it happens twice a day...Very unusual problem...here are the last two dupms
Thanks in advance

A:BSOD when idle,never when gaming or listening to music

The second BSOD suggests an issue with your Kapersky protection program. Also, your Kaspersky Lab BOot Guard Driver - klbg.sys - is from 2008 and should be updated

Anti-Virus Removal:
Please do the following:
- download a free antivirus for testing purposes: Free AntiVirus
- uninstall the Norton from your system
- remove any remnants of Norton using this free tool: Download and run the Norton Removal Tool
- IMMEDIATELY install and update the free antivirus
- check to see if this fixes the BSOD's

If you wish to reinstall Kaspersky after the troubleshooting is done, please download a fresh copy from the Kaspersky website.

Also, please update your Adobe products (if there's no update available, uninstall them and then install a freshly downloaded copy).

Here's a summary of the BSOD's:

Good evening, good morning and good afternoon, depending on where you are,
I'm gonna go straight to the problem. I'm getting 1-4 BSOD's per day. I get them either while simply browsing the internet (facebook, youtube, even this forum), listening to music and chatting on skype or playing (while playing I think I got the BSOD only twice, and both time it was while playing some Minecraft). Now, I don't think I've installed any new drivers and I definitely didn't install any new hardware, apart from when I installed the windows (I changed all PC parts except for HDD and reinstalled the windows). I got the .zip file that's required to help identify the problem and make this post valid for posting. So yeah, that's about it.

This computer is less than 60 days old.
Here is what is happening with this computer.
It started rebooting 3-4 times a day. Sometimes while I was on Chrome, other times while just listening to music.
As of today it is down to just 1 time a day and typically early in the morning, when it should be in sleep mode.

So I ran WinDbg numerous times and almost everytime that I have run it something else comes up as the culprit so this is what I've done so far to get to where I am now.

I uninstalled WinIso, as the first error had something to do with that .sys file.
I removed Universal Media Server from Startup. (I ended up putting this back as the wife was nagging me and it didn't seem to help)
I removed Logitech from startup.
I uninstalled and then reinstalled the following: Dell Realtek Card Reader drivers, Intel RST drivers, Intel Firmware Management.
I went through and read all the "Optional" Win 8 updates to see if any fit the issues I was experiencing.
I made sure all "Important" updates were installed.
I uninstalled NIS 2014.

At this point, I'm stuck and don't know what I'm missing.
Thank you in advance for your help.

A:BSOD while surfing in Chrome or listening to iTunes

Recurrent, random BSOD errors are usually symptomatic of a hardware problem (but can also be other things).
Is this a self-built computer? If so, double/triple check each and every connection in the system (being sure to use anti-static precautions).
If not, is it still under warranty (most OEM systems come with a 1 year warranty)
Start with these free hardware diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics

Make sure that Driver Verifier is turned off.
To do this, open verifier.exe and select "Delete existing settings", then click on Finish and reboot the system.

Out of 20 memory dumps there were 10 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things (the list is not in any sort of order):
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- dirt/dust/hair/fur/crud inside the case. Blow out the case/vents with canned air (DO NOT use an air compressor or vacuum as they can cause damage to the system)
- missing Windows Updates
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers), older systems, or even pirated systems
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardw... Read more

Hi. This is my first post on SevenForums . I recently built myself a new PC. Since first boot, I've got welcomed by a BSOD with code 0x00000124. I have read about this code and figured out that's a hardware or driver problem. It happens while I'm browsing internet (rare in Firefox, but very often in Chrome), chatting on Teamspeak, but never when I play games, even the new and requiring ones. While I was writing this, I've BSOD'ed again and after a restart, exactly after 30 seconds, I've got another one. I said "That's it!" and started writing all over again . So yeah, there's my SF.zip file and PC specs :

CPU - AMD APU A8-6600K
RAM - 4,00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 672MHz (5-5-5-15)
MOBO - Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. F2A88XM-HD3 (P0) 33 ?C
GPU (HD 7790 to be precise) - 2048MB ATI AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series (ASUStek Computer Inc)
HDD (yeah, I know ) - 298GB Seagate ST332062 0AS SATA Disk Device (SATA)
DVD Drive - ATAPI iHAS124 B SATA CdRom Device
Audio - Realtek High Definition Audio

My system language is Polish, so if you have problems with not understanding things in SF.zip files, just ask me about it or translate it in Google

A:0x00000124 BSOD when browsing Internet, listening to music

Hi adi9981.

A stop 0x124 is basically a hardware error, but it is very common for the not-up-to-date systems. Install Service pack 1 and all other windows updates. Otherwise the system will remain vulnerable to threats.

Nazwa systemu operacyjnego Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
Wersja 6.1.7600 Kompilacja 7600
Learn how to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
Service Pack and Update Center - Microsoft Windows

Also take some hardware tests.....

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.
If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Hi there, I hope you can help me with this issue! This is actually the first time I've had an issue like this. I've had it in the past but I passed it off as having a cracked version of windows (yes I'm honest and I've purchased a legitimate copy now!) but I'm not going to do it now after I paid $80 for a legit disc after a major pc upgrade!

So months after having an upgrade my computer has started (out of nowhere) BSOD'ing frequently. By frequently I mean every couple of hours. I hate asking for help or support online or irl (I usually like to find things out myself but I'm not going to this time. lol) but I really do need some!

I'm a light-gamer. By that I mean the biggest thing I play would be Watch_Dogs for an hour or two and not again for a week or so (love and finished it), or I'll occasionally play BF4 or even Call of Duty 4. (yes cod4 is one of the best cod's) However, whenever I'm doing something that's not cpu demanding my computer just goes black then to a BSOD. It's really frustrating and I don't know exactly what's causing it. I don't have Daemon Tools or anything like that installed except WinCDEmu. But I have had that on every computer I've had so far.

I hope someone can help me.... :ccccccc <33333 I'd be really grateful. I can't produce music when I don't get time to save!

Go here and see all the drivers that are bad on you system and get their names and such then look for them on the manufacturers website. This site will tell you which drivers are out of date. Webroot Spysweeper is causing you a lot of issues as well uninstall it and use something that is more compatible with windows 7 such as Malwarebytes or Super Anti-Spyware..

I have a Compaq Presario with Realtek AC97
sound card. Despite the volume being set
to the highest, it is not high enough.
This is especially a problem when doing voice chat.
I have an NEC laptop (not sure which sound card)
and when I connect the same headphone as above
to the NEC, I get good volume.

So I am suspecting the Realtek AC97. But
I am not sure how to make sure that I have
the latest driver for it. When I go the
realtek.com.tw site, there is no driver there
for AC97. There are various other sites
which have drivers but they seem to have
lower versions than mine. I am not sure
I am reading/interpreting the version
numbers properly.

Here is what I see when I go to
control panel -> system -> device manager ->
Realtek AC97 ->properties -> driver
on the compaq presario, I see this version: dated 2/13/2004.

The versions I see on websites that have
AC97 driver have A3.6 or such numbers.

Can someone please give me some ideas about
what I can do to increase the sound volume?

I'm using Windows XP Home, and under Network Connections -> Local area connection status,

there is a popup window which tells you the status, duration, speed and activity of the Local Area Connection.

My problem starts here, under the same window, the Sent value for Activity is extremely bigger than the Received value. When I say "extremely bigger", I mean :

Sent = 18,590,047,886 packets
Received = 269,518 packets

I'm not sure if i was infected which a spam/adware, so I did a scan with AVG-Free. Nothing came up.

Now I'm attempting to record and analyze the traffic packets using Wireshark (AKA Ethereal), but I'm no expert so I don't/can't see anything fishy or out of place.

I'm not even sure if this is a problem to start with, maybe my computer is just sending out alot of random stuff to LAN? (which I'm sure it shouldn't happen anyways...)

Over the past few months I've periodically been hounded to try either Kik or Discord as a secondary means of communication between my online friends. However no offense to them intended, but I just don't trust anyone enough to use anything I thought was similar to Skype or social media. After finally researching them though I actually can't find anything wrong with. Apparently Discord is DDOS proof & Kik doesn't expose any personally identifiable information either, claiming to be a very secure messaging app. Although I know malicious attachments embedded within pics, videos or links could possibly be sent with either, here are my questions about that & more.
1: Is Discord or Kik really DDOS proof & how exactly do they go about hiding your IP when Skype still doesn't?
2: Is there a setting within Discord or Kik to automatically block images, videos, links or any other specified attachment yet still use the text & voice chat?
3: Are there any other security & privacy vulnerabilities with either app that I should be aware of before using?

A:Kik VS Discord Or Neither?

Discord has pretty poor stability and its application is literally a Chromium frame of the web client with a few extra features. Plus it isn't 100% end-to-end encrypted - servers are also just centralised, not actual servers that you install to your computer, which brings confusion. I really dislike Discord as a platform, it will disappear in some years just like every other proprietary trendy IM/VoIP service has done so. I have to use it because everyone I know is way too stubborn to try IRC or XMPP. Cannot say anything for Kik.

Hey guys!! I have been a long time visitor to these forums, but just recently became a member. I manage a computer repair store, and I handle the majority of the repair as well. We get many computers in for repair (average 10 computers a day), and most of that is spyware related. We have changed our methods quite a few times over the last few years, and have done a decent job of cleaning out the infection in a timely matter. Currently, it takes roughly 1.5-2 days to repair a virus/spyware infection. However, with the changes in the malware infections becoming more and more complex, I wonder if our current method is the best.

That's where I need your input. Here is our current method of cleanup on Windows XP:

1. Pull the customer's hard drive and slave into lab computer. Run AVG Anti-Virus scan, followed by Norton Anti-Virus scan.
2. Return hard drive to customer's computer. Boot Safe Mode.
3. Install, update, and run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Scan. (Reboot to remove threats as necessary, returning straight to Safe Mode)
3.1 If program will not run, boot Normal Mode and run AVG AntiRootkit, removing any rootkits. Reboot in Safe Mode and continue.
4. Install, update, and run Spybot - Search & Destroy (Immunize user account)
5. Install, update, and run Spyware Doctor Starter Edition
