Evening lads,

I've recently purchased a 'Plantronics Skype-ready Audio 45 USB Stereo PC Headset' - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0002ZDS4S/202-1788481-0147842?v=glance&n=560798

The headphones work when plugged into the headphone socket on the back of my tower, or when plugged into the headphone socket in my Creative volume control (which comes with some of their more recent audio systems), though the headset came bundled with a USB device which you can plug both headset and mic into, though when I do this sound continues playing on my speakers as opposed to the headphones, despite the fact that I've enabled my computer to automatically detect headphones and switch to them as an audio output. Might this just be down to a dodgy USB socket or device? There was no bundled software with the headset so I imagine that it's not to do with drivers etc.

However, I can cope with this - as I said all I have to do is plug it into the volume control, so no problem (though it would be nice to know why it's not working around the back with the USB if anyone has any clues).

The mic, however, works neither when attached to the USB device, nor when plugged in to the volume control. It does work when plugged in to the microphone socket in the back of the tower, so it's not a problem with the mic per se. I've fiddled around changing various input options, none of which allow it to work with anything except the rear socket. It's a... Read more

I bought a Plantronics Backbeat 903 stereo headset with a store brand 100m bluetooth dongle a couple of days ago so I can listen to my computer wirelessly and not disturb my neighbors. The sound is crystal clear, it's light weight and barely noticeable I'm wearing it. So I'm fairly happy so far. There are a couple of drawbacks like the signal fails at times. For instance if I change rooms. The manual for the headset does mention this but I am wondering if another dongle could improve the signal at all.

I don't have a microwave oven (I don't like them), nor a cordless phone. I turned off my mobile as it is connected to my pc with BT. I disconnected my wifi modem. I'm not even sure if Bluetooth has the same interference issues that occurs with wifi. None of that seemed to improve or impair performance anyway.

Does anyone have any ideas as I am just short of being completely, impressively satisfied with it.

The other issues are reconnecting as sometimes I need to turn off and disconnect the dongle to get it working again. But I attribute that to not knowing how to use it properly. I press buttons randomly hoping one will reconnect and I'm pleasantly suprised when it works. It has trouble with speech recognition too but that's another story.

Also (sorry for the length) when I go to Device and Printers it doesn't show up. I'm curious why not.

Hi:

I'm running Windows XP Pro 32 bit and I have set up my Plantronics Audio355 headset. I calibrated the mic without any problem and tested the mic. It showed that it's recording my voice well within the 20 to 80% perameters.at between 40 and 70%. However, when I try to play online with my friends using my headset with TeamSpeak, version 3.0., they tell me they cannot hear me.

I tried using the wizard but that didn't work either.

If someone could assist me in solving this problem I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks and I look forward to you quick response.

Sounds like a TeamSpeak configuration issue (most likely) or TeamSpeak doesn't support that mic (which shouldn't be an issue as Windows recognizes the mic).

I just got a whole new computer and changed from vista 32 to 64 bit. Everything is running great except for my headset which is a plantronics dsp 500 usb headset. I got this cd when I bought the headset ages ago. If I install the contents of the cd (which is a program called persono) nothing really happens. It's there but It can't find my headset. The headset is plugged in as usual and with persono installed it should be working since that's all it took on the 32 bit OS. I can't find any vista drivers for it on the web and vista can't seem to detect it's plugged in. Nothing shows up in the sound options except for my speakers which work correctly.

Is plantronics dsp 500 just not compatible with vista 64 bit or is there some solution? Would really like to have my headset and microphone working.

Hey guys, I recently recieved a RIG 500 headset for my birthday, and I was pretty pumped to try it out - but after only about a week, I've come across a rather frustrating issue.
I was mid-call with a few friends over skype, when suddenly the whole headset seemed to go dead - after some fiddling, (ie, unplug and replug and the off/on trick) I at least managed to get some basic functionality back in line, but the audio would keep cutting out and, in turn, the mic would come back

After all of this, (and several hours of frustration) the oddest part about it as that I noticed that while the mic was active, the headphones would disable themselves, and when I disabled the mic, the headphones would work fine (alternatively, if the mic was enabled and the headset was working, the mic wouldn't work) - for all intents and purposes, it's as if neither is comfortable with occupying the same usb port, and this behavior would carry on into other programs such as skype and audacity; I'm unsure if this is a driver issue or if this is the fault of some sort virus.

If you guys have any idea what could be wrong and how I can fix this, I'd really love the help.

Today I bought a platronics headset. It features a microphone and headphones.

It connects to the PC with two leads, one for the microphone and one for the headphones.

I plugged in both. The microphone is not detected, and does not display as an option for a voice device in the sound and audio device control panel. Also, sound plays through both the headset and the speakers.

The setup I want is for normal sounds to send through the speakers, and for voice to be send via the headset.

Why is this so screwy? :S I've restarted my PC, etc etc etc.

I just got the MX500i to use for online gaming as a microphone. However, when I plug it into my Vista machine, it tells me that it can't find the drivers to install the DSP55 USB adapter used to convert the 2.5mm jack to USB. It keeps asking me for a CD, but Plantronics doesn't get one with the MX500i, since it installs under XP without a hitch.

I know Vista has issues with DRM and the USB audio devices through the USBAUDIO.sys file, but I got the hotfix and applied that and even replaced the .sys file with one from an XP machine. Neither worked.

I've been reading reviews where the writer talked about how great it worked for Vista's voice recognition, so I know the thing can work in Vista. Can anyone help me out here?

I've been using the below headset for over a year.

This weekend, when I went out of town, I unplugged them to pack them up and use when I got to my desto, but when I plugged it back in, my mic wouldn't work. And now that I'm back home, it's still not working.

Despite checking in recording tab under sound options and made sure it was the default device, uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, making sure the mute button on the headset isn't on, ran Windows update and restarted multiple times from all of my attempts, it's still no bueno. What has me even more confused is that when I'm on Teamspeak or Mumble, my game buddies can see me light up when I use my push to talk but they can't hear me. I can hear them however so it's just the mic that I'm having an issue with.

http://www.plantronics.com/us/product/gamecom-788

Here is a screen shot of my devices until the recording tab under the sound option. After I reinstalled the drivers from Plantronics, I see a Line device (which looks like it should go to a game console which I don't have) and an SPDIF Interface device which I've also never seen before. I don't remember seeing the Stereo Mix device either to be honest.

I have all devices showing in case that becomes a question next. I even work in ITS and this one has got me stumped. Something like this should be relatively easy. I've always just been able to switch back and forth between default devices for switching headset or on board speakers.

This problem has me completely stumped.

Suddenly I have skype problems. Using a Logitech C910 or 620 webcam I get perfect video. Audio works well for about a minute and then it cuts out. I have to switch the input from the C910 to the Realtek drivers for a moment and then, after switching back to the 910, it works just fine for another minute. Wash, rinse, repeat.

I went to the sound control panel and found that none of my USB devices are working for audio input. Blue Yeti microphone - negative. Can't get it to work with Skype at all. Can't even get the control panel >> hardware & sound >> manage audio devices and I see the microphone is set to level zero and muted. I click the mute button to unmute, raise the level to 80.

I go to any audio program. It works for 10 seconds and then the control panel does the same - zeroes out the volume and puts all the devices into mute. It's incredibly irritating.

Nothing has worked. Remove and reinstall all drivers. Remove all Logitech drivers. Remove and reinstall latest Realtek drivers. Cannot seem to beat this problem. Volume is constantly zeroed out. Even when applications are supposed to control the audio source (like skype) it does the same.

Using a Plantronics headset works fine. It is the only device that works without a problem. Yet at least 3 other devices, all by different manufacturers and well support too (like the Blue Yeti) exhibit this recurring issue. Hope someone can help isolate it as Google Voice... Read more

I recently bought a Plantronics headset, and plugged it in my microphone jack. It says "Line IN" when I try to use it with audacity, but when I record, and even yell into it, nothing shows up on the line. My laptop has 2 headphone jacks and a mic jack. Could this be the problem?

A:Plantronics Audio .326 Headset not working on Inspiron 1525 Mic Jack

If you have plugged the microphone part of the headset into the "Mic" jack on the PC and using the "line in" to listen that is incorrect. Generally, Audacity uses the "Stereo Mix" to record. With Stereo Mix set as the default recording device any input is "heard".

Second, if you are plugging the mic into the "line In", that is incorrect and the mic will never work. A computer mic needs +5V DC to operate. The Mic in jack has the 5V, a line in does not and is a stereo (2 channel) input.

You list a Dell Desktop in your System Specs but are referring to a Dell Inspiron 1524 "Laptop". ???

I have encountered this a few times and I thought of collating past experiences of other users on their successful attempt to restore the eco friendly hibernation feature. I personally favour hibernate than sleep as sleep slowly bleeds your battery away.

I just installed a 512GB M4 Crucial SSD into my laptop.

For my case, it happens when I tried to resize the C: partition to a smaller size using a third party software called minitool partition wizard. Windows native disk management somehow restricts the minimum size for C even though I have like 80GBs of free space. After successfully resizing it using partition wizard, i lost hibernation feature.

After searching the internet for solutions, many suggested powercfg cmd but this didnt work for me. I have also tried other recommendations and those didnt work too.

Since hibernation needs to store the OS states and apps into a file before shutting down, I suspected the pagefile.sys got corrupted due to the resizing and did a chkdsk with fix. It found some errors and fixed it. After a successful chkdsk fix, I got back hibernation feature! I also recommend to leave the vritual memory to system managed as I read from other posts that hibernate needs about 4GB of pagefile to hibernate.

Hope this helps others who have similar problems. On the hand if you have successfully restore your hibernation feature, please post your experience here. Thanks!

A year ago my bro's pc lost power. The power supply had failed so I took one out a a really ancient pc from my old job. It worked fine for power but he could not hibernate. If he tried to hibernate he got some sort of message about "hibernation not supported" by the hardware?! (i think). I turned off the hibernation feature and for a year he has had to completely shut down every time he stops using it. For christmas I bought him a ton of memory and a brand new Xion 500watt power supply (his original one was 350). All now installed they work great except hibernation is still not working. He doesn't get any error messages but what happens is this.
1) He does the start, shut-down, ctrl Hibernate without error.
2) Windows XP does the progress bar with "preparing to hibernate".
3) Computer shuts down.
4) Press power button to turn back on.
5) Windows says "resuming ..." (whatever it normally says out of hibernation).
6) When the progress bar reaches the end the computer shuts down (split second power out).
7) when it powers back up it treats the whole thing like an improper shut-down and does a scan and everything.

I checked and made sure all the hibernation settings are correct. Can anyone give me an explanation as to why this is happening?

Oh he has an ASUS A7S333 motherboard with an AMD Athlon processor.

I've been encountering some issues with waking up from hibernation that have been driving me nuts for quite a while.

So, my laptop used to hibernate perfectly with no issues but a month ago this issue appeared. Mainly, when I hibernate my laptop it works good. But when I turn on my laptop again later, the Windows startup screen appears with the logo and it just freezes there. At some point, the fans on my laptop start spinning really fast and it stays like that. The only workaround is to force shutdown my laptop, then start it again which ruins the point of hibernation.

A:Issues with hibernation

Actually there is no need to deliberately hibernate your laptop anymore unless you like to keep a lot of applications open in the background. In W10 the normal shutdown operation uses a hybrid method which uses a type of hibernation so that the boot time is very fast. For me this is great and I rarely ever use hibernate as the applications I want open very fast.

I realise this does not answer your question but I offer it by way of background information. The problem may be that an update which occurred about a month ago has changed one of your drivers. If you know when this happened you could look in your reliability history and see if you can go back and spot any driver updates that might have caused this. If you can then you have the option of rolling back that driver in Device Manager and testing to see if the problem is fixed. You may have to do this for a few different drivers if there were several updated around then.

Note: Reliability history can be quickly found by typing reliability in the search box.

I want to leave my computer on through the night so that it can do it's backup thang, so I've set the power settings to Always On. It will shut of the monitor after 20 minutes, but everything else should stay wide awake.

But, when I wake up the next morning I've got no sound coming from the laptop and one slowly blinking light. The only way to get anything going again is to press the power button for a second and then I am unable to login.

We have several hundred IBM Lenovo (M55) Systems that are running Windows XP SP3 and also have the Novell Client (ver. 4.91 SP5) as well as the ZENWorks Application Launcher installed. I need to get all these systems setup so that hibernation mode is triggered after 15 minutes of inactivity. I configured the 15 minute hibernation on one of my test boxes however after 30 minutes had passed it still had not initiated hibernation. I'd heard that certain screensavers could be an issue however disabling the screensaver failed to resolve the issue. I tried lowering the hibernation initiation period to 1 minute and that worked perfectly however when I set it for 5 minutes or longer it fails to work. I tried building a box from scratch using the same hardware and OS but nothing else and this worked fine at 15 minutes. I tried removing the Novell Client and App Launcher from one of the test boxes that hadn't been working however that failed to resolve the issue. Any thoughts on what might be causing this issue and how I might go about fixing it would be greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone. I was was given a headset by a good friend of mine since mine had recently broke. He assured me that the headset was fine since he had used it the previous night and both audio and recording worked fine. When I had arrived home and tested it I found that only audio was working but my computer wasn't tracking the detecting sound going into the mic we currently have two different operating systems I'm currently on Windows 7 Ultimate whilst he's currently on Windows Vista Home premium. The mic he had given me is a none USB mic, the link to the mic can be found at: Philips - Webcam Share - SPC1035NC/00 - Webcams with headsets - Webcams and headsets - PC products and phones .

You have the driver for the onboard sound installed? Unless someone has one hidden somewhere the best you['re going to get for it is the Vista driver from gateway,

Sigmatel HD Audio Driver Version: 6.10.5405.0

Hey,

I have recently got a new computer ( Packard bell ixtreme M5801). It has no sound card. On my previous computer I tried the headset with no problems however on this one, when the microphone jack is plugged in, the sound is muffled, quiet and distorted. I have tried playing around with the settings on the "Sound" panel and installing the latest drivers from packard bells website. The headset i am trying to use is a Turtle Beach x11.

Today, I plugged my iPod into the microphone port via a 3.5mm cable and when playing it back it was fine.

Thanks for your help.

System Specs:
MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
Intel Core i3 550 @ 3.20GHz
6.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz (9-9-9-24)
Packard Bell ixtreme M5801 (CPU 1)

If you require any more information don't hesitate to ask, as this is my first post.

Many Thanks,
Mike.

I loaded up some Team Fortress 2 on my new build and noticed the sound cuts out after a few seconds of consecutive audio. This happens on all programs now but I've also noticed that when the raw audio (not me turning up and down the volume) is fine when it's loud and when it gets a small bit quiet it cuts out completely. Is this an issue I can resolve in setting or is there something wrong with my headset? By the way, the sound is fine without the headset on the speakers.

Headset works perfectly in other systems by the way.

I play games like counterstrike and rust where listening to where people are coming from is very important, however, my headset doesn't allow me to do that and instead mixes the sounds.

Hi I recently bought a headset for my PC and I'm trying to set up chat functions on a website called discord, as far as I'm aware the app works fine and I should be part of the chat, after unmuting myself. Audio works fine on the headset and has done for
a while but when I plugged in the mic it didn't seem to work, after some fiddling in manage devices I can hear myself being played back, an echo of me talking and typing etc, but I still can't be heard by other people on the chat?

Ok well I am not exactly sure where to post this but since it works well on XP and not Vista I will post it here.

So I went out and bought a headset. Now I have had a couple, but this one is USB so I figured it'll work well. Now then, I use it on XP and I can hear it just fine, everyone else can hear it too. I try it on Vista and it's extremely quiet. I am using Ventrilo to talk to people incase that is needed to be known. So basically I ask, how do I make it more sensative to sound?

Thanks.

Hello:

My wife is a college professor and uses her Dell Latitude 110L a LOT for online classes, grading, and internet research (She NEEDS this machine.) This machine was purchased from an associate at work who was an IT guy whom we have lost track of, and it has been very good for the few years my wife has had it. Last week she began getting pop-ups of virus security alerts. I did some investigating on line and downloaded/ran Malwarebytes. This seemed to get rid of the pop-ups, but shortly thereafter google searches began to be redirected. Since then the computer seems to progressively run slower, the search redirections are more frequent, keystrokes do not register at all unless typing VERY slow, and once it sits long enough to go into sleep mode, it cannot be awakened without a hard shutdown/reboot. An odd, and perhaps unrelated occurrence is that upon initial boot up, the wallpaper she had selected appears, but is replaced by a gray background once the boot process is completed. I ran Malwarebytes and Symantec anti-virus scans this morning. The results of both indicate no issues.
She is running Windows XP with Service Pack 2, and somewhere in the process of all of this, IE 8 was installed. Despite knowing very little about this area, I am by default her IT department. Although I have little experience with this, I can follow instructions. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I downloaded HJT and ran it this morning. The log follows. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello All!

I have been having problems hibernating my windows 7 partition recently. It happened approximately right after I set up the dual boot.

I have found other topics where it says to make sure that the windows 7 partition is marked as the active partition. I have since done so and it has not changed anything. I did it with Partition Magic on Windows. I did find it suspicious though that my Dell Recovery partition is labeled as boot while the Windows one is marked as Active and System.

However when I looked at it using disk utility in Ubuntu the windows 7 partition is marked as Bootable while the recovery partition is not.

Hibernation works on Ubuntu with a couple error messages while shutting down and some weird screen issues while booting up. But it ends up working decently.

I was wondering if anybody would be able to help me with this. Thanks!

Shortly after upgrading an Optiplex 7010 PC to Win 10, I installed all of Dell's latest recommended driver and application updates (covering audio, video and BIOS etc). The updated drivers fixed a few minor bugs initially encountered following the upgrade, but the PC still refuses to remain in either sleep or hibernation for any reasonably long duration. As far as I've been able to observe over the last few days, the duration for which the PC remains "down" can vary quite randomly from around 2 seconds to 10 or more hours (sleep mode is by far the most erratic). I further checked to confirm the power management wake-timer was disabled (it was). I also manually disabled the Windows scheduled update option, but the issue remains. In the 1 year+ that I've used the same PC with the previous OS (Win 7 pro), the system always slept reliably until manually awakened. Any ideas or suggestions?

Recently my headset has been not only recording my voice but also the background noise that the computer makes. So for example if I am in an online game trying to say something on the mic, my voice will be drowned out by the sound of the game. Any ideas on what could be causing this?

Thanks

Turn the microphone volume down a touch so it is less sensitive. That might help, always helps with me

I've had the same problem with 2 wireless gaming headsets. The corsair void pro wireless and now the Logitech G533 Wireless. Basically the mic sounds terrible and I know the problem... I just can't fix it. When I am using the headset using it's wireless USB adapter, it defaults the Default Format to 8000 HZ (telephone quality).




The problem is when I try to change this to higher quality format as seen in the next shot:



It throws this prompt and when i select YES it closes the windows and doesn't save the changes. I have closed all applications using audio and still get the problem... Anyone have any ideas? It's been very frustrating!

Cheers!

For the past two days, I've been struggling to record commentary for a YouTube video I am making. My Headset works everywhere else just fine, but if I plug it in into my laptop it creates static and so does every other mic. I called HP, and they said there was nothing wrong with the jack since I could hear everything just fine. Sometimes the static is in the files themselves but other times it's just through my headsets. I have no clue what to do. I've looked at every single tutorial thing and tinkered with every little thing. The problem was solved yesterday then I tried to record today and RIP.
I checked, and it says all my drivers are updated.
The headset came with a cable that splits the audio, and I'm thinking of splitting it then splitting it back into the laptop. I really have no clue what else to do.

Thank you in advance.
