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.)

Having issues with BSOD and i can't find out why or how it happens. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
thank you. I've never used a forum before, and have no idea what else to do in my position. I uploaded the files that you will need to solve this if you can, thanks again. 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.

A:BSOD like many others. New iBuyPower....


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.)

I have never heard of an Ibuypower, but I do have an Emachine. I am still using an Emachine 333id model. I would say an Emachine. Go with what I know LOL.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I'm just going to make a long story short and say this: I bought an ibuypower laptop (Battalion HEL80) a while back and I had to format. Unfortunately I don't have the driver disk for my network card (wired and wireless) and I don't know what the exact model or who the manufacturer is. Does anyone know what kind of card this laptop would have or know of some way I could get the model number?

A:Can't find network drivers for ibuypower laptop

I believe it uses an Intel 945PM chipset.

If so it probably uses an Intel NIC. You can download the chipset drivers from here: http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scripts-df-external/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=N&ProductID=816&DwnldID=12150&strOSs=45&OSFullName=Windows*%20XP%20Home%20Edition&lang=eng

Good morning everyone,

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)

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.

Ok,Here is the issue with this sound card. First off it's a nice Diamond (great cards) Xtreme Sound 5.1. The problem I have with it is it's affected by certain videos. Youtube it plays fine.....until you go into Full Screen mode, then it's garbled...you can't make it out what anyone is saying during play back in F\S mode. Another problem I have is Encoding videos do the exact same thing!

Last night I downloaded a freeware program that was on my old box called "Panzera mp4 to avi converter 1.3" it's a great program.

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.

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?

Hi guys,

I've had a few problems with my sound card for quite some time on games now.

I have a range of issues that I can't seem to fix.

With sound acceleration on, all my game sounds are high pitched and sound silly. So I turn acceleration off and my sounds start to stutter in places. The other effect is sound 'warping' where the sound sounds similar to the effect if you put a shell to your ear and you can hear the swooshing. it sounds silly but I know what I mean.

Does anyone know the answer? i'm tearing my hair out here.

This is probably another thread that says "I have a sound problem." But I think my problem differs from other people who's having problem.

Okay, here it goes. I clearly remember what I did on my laptop. I was deleting unimportant files and after that I went disk cleaning on my :D drive. After awhile I hopped on to a game and then i realise that there was no sound playing from my speakers. Nope it's not hardware problems because I was just playing some music on my iTunes before I even touch the disk clean-up manager. Tried the device manager and I tried to roll back the changes. It wouldn't work. I tried downloading the SndVol32.exe file and I extracted in the System32 folder but to no avail. I can't hear a thing from the speakers.

Well, I'd appreciate it if someone could help me asap. Thank you :)

Ok recently rebuilt xp sp3 machine, sound,
creative labs live 5.1 (old),
boston accoustics 2.1(old).
The sound went out before rebuild.
Put an
Mobo: asrock 990 fx extreme 4
CPU: amd Phenom II x4 365
GPU: evga geforce 550 ti
RAM: 8 gb Corsair Vengeance
PSU: Corsair Enthusiast 750 watt
SATA HD: 500 gb on windows xp sp3 from last build

So, build is good so far. I realize the limitations of xp as far as the ram goes.
I still cant get balanced sound.
Using the ports on mobo, i couldnt get the bostons to work, on any ports.
So i get a $25 pair altecs, still unbalanced sound. ( example, diablo 1, cant hear npc speech, music varies, footsteps loud).
Put the creative 5.1 card in, and after latest driver install, Dim sound on windows noises. Worse than mobo sound.
Speakers are new, card is old.
I've diasabled mobo ac 97 sound to isolate the card. Wasn't happy with ac97 sound to start with.
Any suggestions?
I really like the bostons, they lit up, just no sound

Oh ya and what is the best port on either for a 2.1 speaker set? the bostons ran on the digi port and it was checked in settings. the altecs also require that box checked to get "noise"

We have a computer that was given to us (NEC, celeron chip and running Win98) and we are trying to get it ready for our daughter's roommate for college. She may load win xp when she gets it, not sure. It works fine except the sound. We have the sound for the windows media player but for all other sounds, it is garbled or a static sound. 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!

My Windows? 7 Professional, 64bit, English had been playing sounds from everything perfectly last night. When I went to shut down it started installing security updates. I left it to its work and went to bed. . When I turned it on my computer this morning, It behaved normal, except that now applications sounds don't seem to work. The system sounds work fine (start up sounds and speaker tests), but if I try and watch something on youtube.com or play a game, those sounds are not working.

I thought it might be because of the security updates from last night, so I did a system restore taking it back to before those updates were installed. When it came back up, it still had the same issue.

* Rebooted the computer multiple times
* I checked in Device Manager under Sounds and the driver is reported as being the newest driver
* It doesn't appear to be muted

I'm not sure where else to check.

Not sure what to do from here. The sound is from an Integrated 5.1 Channel Audio

youtube and many games use flash or shockwave, so I would suspect that is where the problem is, not with your sound card since other sounds work OK.

I bought a HP laptop last Thursday with Windows 10 64 bit. Everything seems to be fine except the external speakers. The inbuilt speakers work just fine but when I plug in my external speakers there is a static somewhat loud noise. I can hear the online radio playing from the inbuilt speakers after plugging in the external speakers. My speakers are rather old, bought 8 years ago but worked fine on my previous computer which was a Gateway laptop with Vista. My speakers are very basic. Looks like the picture from the below link and you connect to the powerbar.
I don't have headphones but I plugged in a basic earphone and same result as the external speakers.
What steps can I take to fix this or is it a case of having speakers that are not compatible to Windows 10 and I should just buy new ones. Thanks for any advice. Cordeiro

The computer I have had on board sound but it began to act up. It started to not work and occasionally come back through. Then Completely stopped. I thought maybe the speakers. So I bought new speakers. The sound worked for another short period like a day and then stopped working. I checked the speakers on another PC and they still worked. But they do not work on this one.

I figured it was a sound card issue so I added a Sound Blaster Audigy 4 Loaded everything properly through its CD and it still doesnt work.

I thought maybe a conflict with the onboard sound so I went to BIOS and disabled the onboard card. Still nothing.

When I go to the control panel and sounds to look at this device. It says working properly. It says it is there. I the speakers pop on when I start the computer.

I have power to the speakers. They are plugged into the right jack on the pc. They have the small pop on start up you can hear when the pc turns on. The sound control panel is not on mute.

Under Device volume in the control panel it does say device volume is low all the way to the left but this is all shadded to where I can not change that. Also says device is enabled.

I am at a loss what do I do? Please help if you know.

Thanks, Brekkon
