Sound Issues on my IBUYPOWER PC

Q: Sound Issues on my IBUYPOWER PC

Hey all, new to the forums and in pretty serious need of some help. I bought an IBUYPOWER prebuilt gaming rig last... April I think, and its been working great for me. Recently however ( the last month or so), the sound keeps going out. It went out for about a week before randomly coming back (nothing I did), and now its been gone for about 2-3 weeks. The sound icon down by the clock shows a red x and says that no speakers are plugged in. I've tried a bunch of things to try and get my audio back on, but no luck. I'm not sure what I would need to provide here for anybody to help me, or what I SHOULDNT post for security reasons, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Some important notes
*I have Windows 7
*I have two jacks for my speakers, one in the back where you would typically expect to find one, but also an additional one in the front panel. Neither one apparently works, leading me to believe its a driver issue.
*Gosh idk what else to put down! any help would be greatly appreciated, I used to think I was capable with computers but this seems to be beyond me

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'm in the process of configuring a new system on IBuyPower and unfortunately they don't tell you which brand HD they use on the customization page. does anyone have any experience with them? I'm hoping it's WD just cos I seem to have the best luck with them. Size capacity I chose was 500GB.

Also my temps read around 40-60 because i play mmos, and my rear fan runs hard core alot even with case open, and idk if its just the fact that its a gaming pc or if it is telling me of a soon to come heat problem.

Uninstall Avast then use the removal tool. Set Windows Firewall and Windows Defender to Automatic and start them too, using services.msc.

Update Realtek HD Audio codec driver from their website:

RTKVHD64 RTKVHD64.sys Fri Mar 29 09:40:06 2013 (515599B6)

Update motherboard bios to newest version.

Likely that the memory is not configured well, mismatched, or defective.

Please attach a screenshot of CPU-Z first tab, one of memory tab and one each for each stick of RAM of SPD tab - along with newest crash dumps - if necessary after completing the above. (Or perhaps Avast removal is the trick instead.)

Hi everyone...I'm in the process of getting a new computer and I'm currently looking at this online place called www.ibuypower.com ... basically that site lets you choose the components and they'll put it together for you. I searched the parts on NewEgg and the price actually came out higher hahah

Anyway, what's troubling me is that a look at their ratings at ResellerRatings.com is "great" http://www.resellerratings.com/seller2001-p3-s1-d1.html

So my question is has anyone here had experiences with that company along with suggestions, etc. Thanks in advance.

Does anyone out there know if the iBuypower computers or other computer out there on like Tigerdirect or the ZT brands from Costo are any good? I've never heard of them but keep seeing them popping up everywhere....

I've only ever had a Dell, HP or Gateway machine.

A:iBuypower and other non-namebrand computers

They're most often made from quite much better quality parts than Dell, etc as they don't get exclusively extra cheap motherboards and other parts like the big brand companies. They do sometimes use lower quality power supplies though, quite a feat considering what the factory built boxes have. I wouldn't recommend getting any of them without modifying it yourself and selecting a quality power supply for it, or replacing it yourself to save a few dozen dollars, as well as getting a longer warranty for the PSU.

What seems to be wrong us that the UEFI can't seem to detect the harddrives when determining boot order? That's my best guess. I really have no idea. If I load Bootable media, such as my installation drive, it detects it just fine and all my components are fine and I'm able to format and install as I please.
However, I'm unable to access the UEFI configuration, as the pc just stops.
Twice in the past few days it's been able to work itself out and boot as normal, so I know it's not a harddrive issue, but it's extremely rare.
I formatted and installed a fresh windows on a secondary drive to see if that would help to both avail.

Back in December 2009 I bought a computer from iBuypower. I have just recently noticed how slow the install is because I got a new copy of Windows 7 for my 13inch MacBook Pro(2.66 Core2, 4GB RAM) and it seems to run games faster and be more stable. Could it just be a early version of 7 that is causing the problem? or is it hardware?

iBuyPower Specs:
Core i7 OCed 3.2GHz
12GB RAM at 1600Mhz
ATI 5850 1GB

A:Slow Windows 7(iBuypower Disc)

Your over clock maybe causing it to slow down.

Heat can cause issues with Hardware, and can you post pictures of the insides of your case.

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

Hey all,

This started last night, the only thing that I did that was out of the ordinary was ran Avast's thourough scan fully, but even after that my sound worked, so it didnt delete the driver to my knowlege, but when I do a dxdiag and look at my audio, it doesn't exist, there is no sound card installed, and allI use is my DFI Lan Party UT RDX200 CF-DR mother boards on board sound. I tried installing the driver again fom DFI and to no success, now when I went to install the drive again, I got an error saying that this device isnt approved by Windows, could windows be preventing my audio card from working?



A:OnBoard Sound issues (Sound Card not Found)

Read other 15 answers

I'm not sure if this is all part of the same problem but there are multiple things going on. On my laptop ( its an HP Pavilion DV6, with an intel core i3 CPU @ 2.20ghz, & 64 but operating system ) The only way i can get any sound to play is if I watch videos in my firefox browser. No sound will play when i use Chrome (which I prefer) or Itunes, or windows media player. The problem with watching videos in firefox is that there is about a 20 second delay before the video will play, and an error comes up to stop the plug in or continue. If you close out of that box the video will play but you will get the same delay every time it is paused and started again. Browsing in Chrome and playing videos from that browser there is absolutely no lag, its lightening fast, but you will not get any sound. Other simple programs ( Like solitaire) have the same lag, each card you click takes about 20 seconds for the move to actually take place. I've tried messing with my sound drivers to correct the audio issues but I am not sure if it is an audio issue, a flash player issue, or a combination. Any input?

1)I'm having issues with my speakers not cutting off when I connect my headphones to them. The speakers are the Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 PC set, and I have tried two different sets of headphones, plus the sound is full of static and buzzing. I've also tried re-installing/updating my onboard sound driver, but that doesn't help. I do notice that when I connect my headphones to the speakers that the sound emitted from the speaker will lower by 25% but will not fully cut off. I'm also having issues with the front panel headphone jack on my computer case (Antec 1200 V3). The sound coming out of the headphones when connected to the front panel is filled with static and buzzing. I have tried re-grounding the front panel ground connector, but that didn't change anything. However, if I connect the headphones directly to the back of the computer, the sound works fine.

2)When watching Youtube videos each video has a hard time buffering. My speed is at 10 Mbps and it registers at that speed when I do a speedtest, plus all other websites work fine, it's just Youtube that I'm having a problem with. I've cleared the cache and tried using a different browser, but nothing helps.

I have also ran Malwarebytes AntiMalware, SUPERAntiSpyware, neither yielded any harmful results.

Any help would be appreciated.

I've seen this happen with the games I play recently. For example, in games like Battlefield 1942 and Black and White 2, some places showed "straight lines" from objects. At the top of the 3d static object in question, the straight lines go from there to the sky. There seems to be no end to that unless I get really close to that object.

As for the sound problem, I'm hearing static occur at random occasions. Any way to fix these?

My video and sound cards are up to date, My video card is a Geforce 8400 GS. Running on a AMD Athlon 64 processor at 2.20 ghz with 1 gb of ddr. Anyone ever had this problem? I tried Divx and Xvid thinking it was a codec problem. boy was I wrong. any suggestions is welcomed.

I installed DirectX9.0c, I have Divx and Xvid codecs. My sound drivers are up to date. I unhooked the onboard sound and uninstalled sound max after buying the Diamond.

Hello, I have a strange problem with my sound settings that has just started since I reinstalled Windows.

Basically Im a dj & I use my pc to stream shows on the internet.
My decks are connected to my Vestax mixer which is connected to the line-in on my soundcard.
Connected to the line-out is my hifi.

When I do my shows I have jingles to play etc which I use Media player for. So while Im streaming (with shoutcast) I open a jingle in Mediaplayer & that goes out over the stream aswell as the audio coming from my decks. through line-in

Now since my reinstallation the problem Im having is I cant get the audio from Media Player to go out at the same time as my music from my decks.

Ive fiddled with the audio properties in Windows etc (which Ive never had to do before) and I cant get it working how it was before :
I dont understand whats chnaged since my reinstall.
Any ideas anyone?

So, I recently rolled back to XP, from Vista. And I could get all the drivers I needed installed again. (Video, Printer, Keyboard, Mouse). But, whatever I try to do, or no matter how many different drivers I install, the sound will not work! I have checked the back of the computer, referred to the manual, and have done countless Google searches.

Can anybody help? I would greatly appreciate it!


A:I am having sound issues!

What's the brand name and model name and complete model number of that computer?

If perchance it's a HP/Compaq brand, advise what the product number(P/N) on it is.

If perchance it's a Dell brand, advise what the 7-character "service tag" number on it is.


Never ever upgrade or downgrade to a different Windows version without first confirming the identity of the computer's devices and confirming that device drivers exist for that Windows version.

If you go into the Device Manager, it's my guess there's one or more entries with a yellow ? next to it - which indicates the driver hasn't been installed.

We checked the sound from the control panel. When we try checking the sound it is the garble/static sound. The media player only worked from the head phone plug in the front of the computer, not the card in the back. Does anyone have any suggestions for us? My husband is trying to install another sound card, not sure if it will work. Any other suggestions would be helpful.
Thanks in advance!

Here is the issue:Installed new graphic card lost audio with a twist I can plug my headphones in and I have audio but no audio through speakers.The details:I had an ATI Radeon HD 3400 Series video card things went crazy with it so I installed a Galaxy GeForce 9600 GT.I run my computer through my HDTV on the tv there is an audio jack (the green one) which I run into the back of the computer into the audio jack (green one) on the mother board which is a Asus KV8-KM.I also have a sound card in a PCI slot a Realtek HD card but I do not use it bc I don't have the proper hook ups for it but it does show up as enabled and working properly in device manager.Device manger has no yellow showing everything seems to be running fine so it thanks.I also downoloaded driver pro software to update all drivers which I have done.My question is what are the troubleshooting steps I should take to get things to work? Or why can I have audio when I plug headphones in but not sound through my speakers?Thank you for the help in advance!

A:Sound Issues

Check your Realtek software (should be a blue icon like a crab in your taskbar by the clock, or even a red speaker icon in some cases) sometimes the default jack assignment settings are incorrect or re-assigned (i dont have a realtek here at work so unfortunatley cannot walk you through the settings). Also the ATI HD3400 most likely has an onboard sound card if its a HDMI version, that could have interfered with your setup. Open your control panel/Sounds and Audio Devices, click the Audio tab at the top and ensure the correct device that you are pluging your TV into is the Default Device in the Sound Playback section at the top.

Hope this helps

I just upgraded my ram tonight. I inserted it not all the way in so my PC din't boot... I realized this and pushed the 2 Ram sticks in properly. Then windows Showed I had 16 gigs ( as expected) But my windows said reboot required. So I rebooted and now I have no sound... I made sure my devices were not muted and that my default device was my speakers, Still no sound.

I'm on a asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.

I tried reinstalling the drivers and checked in my PC to make sure that I dint accidently unplug anything ect. Any ideas why my sound suddenly isn't working overnight? I know this is vague but it's weird as heck.

P.S I just plugged in my Earphones and the front panel seems to work. So I was thinking maybe my speakers are dead? but they worked on my friends laptop... Also my microphone is plugged at the rear panel and it's detected as plugged but it's not detecting my speakers.

Recently, i've run across a strange problem/problems.
After busting my *** to get one of my older games (beyond good and evil) to run on my AMD Dual-Core, Windows has lost it's ability to recognise any of my sound devices.
I have the onboard realtek POS that i haven't used fo yonks, a set of USB headphones that have never faltered and a Lexicon Lambda recoding interface.
None of these are recognised by the sound dialogue box, yet certain applications still have sound, such as Foobar2000 and the game in question.

DXDIAG also shows the devices working. I am absolutely stumped as why this is happening.

A:Issues with sound

Check Device Manager, click "show hidden devices". Report any flagged devices here.

It started earlier this week. I got home to find my computer running and the fans going full tilt. I shut it down (via the power button, had no choice) and booted it back up. Everything seemed to work fine except the sound.

the problem:
Whenever I try to adjust sound in control panel, it turns itself back down! Also, the + vol key acts like a mute button.

What ive tried:
Ive tried system restore, Ive tried reinstalling some drivers (i have an old compaq r3230us with soundblaster integrated audio). I did a full scan for viruses in safe mode that turned up nothing.

I tried using chkdsk in command prompt. My results are pictured below. When i use /f to force it on the next reboot, it cancels itself, wtf!

possibly has nothing to do with it:
I believe while I was gone that day (before I found it frozen) a mac spoofing program I was using (14 day trial) might have ended. Either way, I uninstalled it and the spoofed mac adress stayed also wtf!!
I cleaned it out of the registry and reinstalled it, so I now have the right mac, but still no sound

thanks for any help ahead of time

Hello everybody !

Decided to create this topic in order to discuss sound issues related to Windows 7. In my case, I decided to install W7 in my Sony Vaio VGN-S360, despite all warnings related to Vaio only supporting its original XP Home Edition. Everything is running smooth and the OS works fine and fast. I have already downloaded and installed most drivers from Sony support webpage. However, there is one thing that won't work the way it should. I have my Fn key working fine for brightness control and other stuff. But as for sound, it won't control the overall sound. You see the scale going up and down, but that doesn't affect the master volume (soundmax). Does anybody have any idea how to turn the Fn key into a master sound control again ? Thanks !

A:sound issues

You'll have to update at least 2 pieces of hardware to do this (and hope that they work together).
Update the keyboard driver that runs the Fn keys - but get it from the hardware manufacturer's website - NOT the Sony website.
Do the same thing with the sound card driver.

Run the installers in Compatibility mode for Vista and Run as administrator.

For some unknown reason my mic stopped working last week, so I bought a new one, which still didn't work. And knowing that my sound card was getting a bit old, I thought that might be the problem. So I bought a new one...and still my mic doesn't work. I checked all the usual suspects-making sure the volumes were up and nothing was muted, and everything checked out fine.
Since my computer was running rather sluggishly, I thought I'd do a format and clean install (XP) and see what happen. Same thing, no mic. My speakers still work fine, though.
OK, so maybe I'm having some sort of conflict with the on-board sound, so I went into the bios to shut it down, but this mobo doesn't give me the option. Even the device manager won't let me disable the on-board sound. But it doesn't make sense why it worked fine for months, then nothing.
So, I have a rather new mobo (less than a year old), a new sound card and new mic...but I still can't get the **** mic to work!
Does anyone have any ideas about this? Could this mean I may have a problem with the mobo? There doesn't seem to be any problems anywhere else.
