Unable To Set Headset As Default


Unable to set headset as default default but works when using the 'test' option in . In the past i was able to switch between default audio devices on my computer, from the headset to the speakers. However, about a week ago, i could no longer do so. I realized this problem when i tried to switch from speakers to a headset as a default device (both speakers and headset are connected).

In the playback options, i right clicked the corresponding device (my 2-c-media usb headphone set) and clicked on "set as default device". However, the icon did not change from the phone-shaped icon into the check-mark icon. I proceeded to check if my device was working properly by clicking on "test" instead of "set as default device".

I was able to perfectly hear the test sound through the headphone set, but i am still unable to set it as my default device. I game a lot so i usually set my headset as the default device to prevent noise pollution in my house. I am using a windows 7 64-bit. Home premium.

Accidentally Set Same Default Program

I was trying to open dell webcam central because it wasn't working. I right click and picked open with, then pick default opener. I did not notice that the box that says something along the lines of "make default for all programs" was checked. Now any time i try to open any program it opens the webcam. I have tried doing system restore, but received an error message concerning a file problem. It said to try turning off my antivirus, which i did and it still didn't work. I've tried to go back and select the default program for each program, but it doesn't change anything.

Cannot Set A Paging File Size

The paging file wont set on the main drive (c:). I get a dialogue box on start up saying that it needs to be set. Each time i try to set it either manually or clicking on 'manage automatically' it wont set and i get the same message on each reboot. It doesn't matter what option i set it always comes back to "no page file" after i restart. This is a new windows 7 install on a new hp desktop. I noticed that several people have posted having the same problem, any ideas? I have more than enough disk space. And i'm using the suggested size.

All Program Icons Are Set To Spreadsheet

My baby sister recently phoned me with a pretty serious problem and seeing as how in the family im the tech dude i found myself at a loss with her error.
á
The error is as follows: all of the programs on her pc try to open in spreadsheet, either in the start menu or the desktop. She told me that when she changes the default starting it changes all of them to the same and certain programs cannot be changed at all.
á
Is there a way to fix this without a major overhaul being done? As i have to do it via phone and she isn't that great with technology.

Set Email Address In Live

How do i set an email address in windows live? Every time i go to windows live forum and do a post it channels me into select windows -> win 7 etc etc.

I don't really understand how i get to ask a question about windows live. I set up windows live with an id that was like an email address . @Me.com, but wasn't really one, just an id i fancied, cos the software didn't ask for an email address. Now every where i go to do with windows live (eg this forum) it says ill get informed of things. How will it inform me if it doesn't have my email address, doesn't it know i didn't give it an email address?

I ve looked all around my profile and what ever other items i can go to under windows live when im logged in and i cant find anywhere it allows me to provide an email addr'. I am really confused about all these windows live items. I cant find a no advertising style page that just explains very simply what it actually is!

How To Undo Set Programs Associations?

I just got a new computer and installed itunes onto it. I started to try and attempt to move my library from another computer to my new one when itunes asked me to set associations for it. I didn't understand what i was doing and i just clicked select all and went on my way. Now, my computer's screen goes bright to dark and black and in intermittent patterns. I can't change it back and i'm worried it's compromised my computer. I don't understand what's happening other than it's saying that it's due to a program called dcpsysmgr from dell inc. Can someone please explain to me what's going on and how to fix it!

Unable To Set Change Screen Resolution

I had reason to reinstall my win 7 recently. Since re-installation i haven't been able to set the screen resolution to 1600x1200 despite the fact that it set to it no problem before the reinstall. If i try changing it using the "screen resolution" in appearance/display it reports that "windows could not change your display to this resolution. Try another resolution. " If i try and force it in the advance settings, despite selecting 1600x1200 it sets it to 1024x768. It also in both cases seems to set the monitor to 59hz rather than 60 or 75.

I've tried uninstalling the gfx driver (ati radeon 4800 series) but the problem still occurs. I've also unplugged the second display and am just using the primary one to try and get this sorted. I know the resolution does work with my pc and monitor and win7 as it was fine before the re-install and i use this resolution for older games that don't support wide screen gfx modes.

Computer Has Duplicate Set Of Program Files

New gateway computer/all in one/64bit/more space than i've ever had and operates okay. The computer files reflect "program files" and then "program files (86)". Many appear to be duplicates. If i merge these files, will it adversely affect the performance of the computer? Can some of the files in the "program files" that are the exact same files as are in "program files (86)" be deleted or would that automatically be done with a drag and drop manuever? I'm really confused. I did ask gateway, but they would not answer the question and just referred me to the manual. It does not address this issue. Can anyone out there help me with this intriguing but irritating mystery?

Error - Admin Policy Is Set To Not Allow To Install .msi Programs

Can't install programs (. Msi?), And the error message says that it's because the admin policy is set to not allow it. But i'm the admin, i've recently installed windows 7, and, as the title says, there are some programs i can't install. What i've noticed is that they are "msi" files (i think) - don't know if this means anything or not. I get an error message (redá"x")áthat says that the system admin doesn't allow such a file to be installed, but i'm the sys admin. I took a gander at the admin tools (control panel), but i don't understand most of what's there.

Headset Not Working Right

I'm using a dynex headset, which isáa usb headset. It worked fine on windows vista 64 bit and i got my upgrade disk today. I upgraded to windows 7 but encountered a fewáproblems. My volume coming through my computer works fine. When i have my headsetáplugged in thats where the problem is. I use ventrilo alot to communicate. Everytime a sound goes through my headsets speaker it gets static-y and remains like that for about a minute or until another sound comes through.

People can hear me just fine and clear. Its not a vent issue because the static occurs during any sound, even the windows notification sounds. I've updated all usb drivers and all the downloads from windows update. Any ideas?áá

Headset Setup With Win 7

I recently purchased windows 7 and installed it onto my pc (before i had xp). My pc is capable of running it (3. 4ghz, 6 gig 6, ati 5770). However, i cannot get my headset to work with windows 7. The headset has an orange and a pink jack. I have plugged these jacks into the back of my computer in the corresponding jacks several times but windows has never detected anything. I have tried the "add a device" feature and windows has come up with nothing. Additionallyáon the audio device manager it says that speakers, headsetsáand microphones are all not plugged in, even though they are. Anyone know how to configure these with windows 7?

Bluetooth Headset Error

I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. I can't seem to get my blue tooth headset to work with windows 7. It tells me i need to get the drivers, but when i try windows update it says i'm current and the manufacturers website tells me the generic blue tooth drivers from microsoft should work. The blue tooth module is working properly and the head set works with my other vista computers, so i'm at a loss for ideas.

I have also tried installing drivers from broadcom having read similar problems being fixed by such actions, but the head set still does not work. The head set connects and shows up under devices, but has the troubleshooting icon. I think thats about all i can remember at this time, any help or ideas on how to fix this problem would be much appreciated.

Usb Headset Audio Issues

I'm having a really annoying problem that developed in the past 3-4 months. I use a griffin imic2 to plug in the monaural headset i use for vent. All my gaming (primarily wow at the moment) goes through my xonar dx sound card out to my z-5500 speakers. I'm running windows 7 64-bit on a dell xps420.

What happens is, the headset works fine until i reboot. When i reboot, ventrilo can't find the output, and in windows the imic2 device doesn't show up . If i unplug the device once and plug it back in, vent finds it, but it doesn't output any audio and the volume is at 100% in the windows mixer (i usually have the volume at 80%). If i unplug it a second time, the device works perfectly and windows sets it back to 80% like nothing happened.

I get the same problem with a cheap startech usb sound card i bought to see if the problem was the imic2. My next step is to reinstall but i hate to do that on what is an otherwise perfect setup. Ny ideas? Or can someone point me to where windows stores usb device debugging/logging info so i can see what its doing with this thing on boot that doesn't happen the second time i replug it?

Ares Stereo Usb Headset Problem

Driver problem with "ares stereo usb headset"_das gerĄt kann nicht gestartet werden. (Code 10) (the device can not start. (Code 10) i have a little bit trouble with my "ares▓ stero usb headset" and "windows 7". The support page from my headset (speedlink.com) only told me "for vista you need no special driver, vista installs his own driver, it is called c-media usb headphone set. ".

But it didn't work for me and my windows 7. Windows fount and install the driver, but he can't initiate my headset and told me the best ting what i can try is to reinstall the driver, but this didn't resolve the problem. So i think this is maybe a problem of windows 7. I can't believe, that i need a special driver for a normal usb headset with only a function to increase and decrease the volume output.

Informations i have found:
Headset: http://www.Speedlink.com/?P=3&cat=183&pid=15862&paus=2&act_lang=en
My windows: windows 7 home premium
Errore message (in german): das gerĄt kann nicht gestartet werden. (Code 10) (translation: the device can not start. (Code 10)
