Speaker Sound Stops When Using Internet


I've been having a major problem with my computer where after a variable period of time ( most often when attempting to install a game or use the internet ) the computer stops sending sound through the speakers, claiming i've unplugged an audio jack when i really haven't. In addition the internet loses it's connection, when the internet is fine and so is the connection to the router as far as i can tell. I've tried rolling back the system with system restore but it happens again. Furthermore, the computer tends to slow down greatly and the only way to get out of it is to hit the reset button where 9/10 times it will ask me to go into safe mode. Which doesn't help. If someone could get back to me soon that would be brilliant.

Automatic Internet Time Synchronization Stops Working

I need the local time to be synchronized to the second and hence use the internet time synchronization option. As the computer's local clock drifts quite a lot, i have set the synchronization frequency to 5 minutes in the registry. These settings seem to work for a week or so, and then suddenly the clock stops updating without alerting me. I assume this relates to a connection problem to an ntp server, but instead of retrying in 5 minutes the whole synchronization scheme stops until i manually restart synchronization. Is there any way that i can reliably ask the computer to synchronize, and retry if a connection is broken?

Sound Randomly Stops Working

Have had windows 7 for a while. The sound randomly just stopped working. I can see the sound on the volume bar, but it's just not coming out my speakers. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the soundmax drivers, but still no sound. I've checked for similar issues but the other issues seem to just occur as people upgrade to windows 7. My sound was working fine within windows 7 and just appears to
Stop working out of no where. I just don't know what else it could be. I have windows 7 home premium.

Sound Randomly Stops Until Reboot

I have win7 64 bit on an hp, i will be playing music in either itunes, youtube or some other program, and when i go to switch the music source the audio stops. Itunes will be playing but the time will not move, youtube will show the video with no sound and nothing else will produce sound either. I also have the same issue at times when coming up from hibernating or sleeping. With both instances it happens randomly. It is always fixed by restarting. I had the same problem with xp on a different machine as well, and could never figure it out.

Sound Stops On Instant Message

I recently got a new dell laptop with win7 x64, and i'm having some issues with the sound. I can listen to music or watch a youtube video just fine, but when i get an instant message from skype or gmail (desktop version only) it causes all sound to stop for a few seconds. I just updated to what appears to be the latest drivers, but it still has the same problem. Anyone have any ideas? Could it just be a general incompatibility of the skype or gtalk with a 64 bit os? Driver issues?

Sound Is Fine In First Program But When I Open Another It Stops

When i start up the computer sound works perfectly. I start up media monkey, the music program i use, and i can play music. Then i start up another program, like wow or ie, and it won't work. Cuts out in the middle of the song. I have downloaded all of the updated drivers and this problem has been happening since i had vista. This has occurred for the last week or so. Sound is fine in the first program i open but when i open another it stops.

Usb Stops Randomly With Disconnect / Connect Sound

I recently bought windows 7 professional and office 2007 to go a long with it, and installed windows 7 fine. It ran without the problem until i installed office 2007 half a week later. The problem is that randomly, every now and then the computer just stops, noticeably my mouse stops moving with the loading circle and a usb connect/disconnect sound for about second before running again. This happens regardless of what i'm doing, whether i'm out on the desktop, or actively using a program it still occurs.

I've tried changing the usb slot that my mouse is connected to, changing the mouse, uninstalling the office updates i had immediately before getting the problem, uninstalling office 2007 itself, uninstalling any windows updates i had around that time, changing my power settings, device settings, finding drivers, and it had no effect.

I had checked the eventlog for anything that seemed out of place, and none of the events there correspond to when the problem happens. So, so far i'm completely stumped, whether or not office is actually related i'm not even sure.combed the web for answers and still haven't found any solutions.

Sound Randomly Cut Out - Media Player Stops Working

Sound randomly cut out (and windows media player stops working, and videos move at 1 frame every 10 seconds with no sound) - windows 7 64 bit. I've been running vista 7 64 bit for several weeks. Lately the sound has been cutting out randomly. Once the sound cuts out, i also can't play any videos on windows media player because it gets very slow (like 1 frame every 10 seconds) and there is no sound.

Itunes doesn't let me play any songs, and anything else that could make a sound doesn't work. The only way i've found to fix this is with a restart. However lately i've had to do this almost every day, sometimes twice. My sound card is an m-mobile pre (since i have an xlr mic plugged into it). But i have the most recent firmware update for it. So i really have no idea what's happening here. Suggestions?

Only One Speaker Works On Headphones

This is not a problem with the headphones, i've tried multiple pairs, each of which works fine on other devices. Nor is it a problem with the left-right speaker balance as i've checked that setting. Oddly enough the inbuilt speakers work fine. Okay so with those checks out of the way, i'm using a 2 week old acer aspire timeline as3810t running windows 7 64 bit home premium.

Just a few days ago suddenly i notice that when using headphones only the left speaker gives any sound. It's like the right speaker doesn't exist. I emailed acer tech support but they didn't reply and it's been 4 days. The laptop has a hdmi out and a black audio jack with a headphones icon and the letters spdif. I've also tried uninstalling the audio thing in device manager and downloaded the latest drivers, all to no avail.

I just had a hunch that completely wiping the hard disk and reinstalling windows would fix the problem, as it's hard to imagine that the audio jack just died (jiggling it around does not work). So before i do that and before i make a warranty claim, i was thinking someone would be able to show me how to check the relevant settings etc without completely obliterating the current windows installation.

Pc Speaker / Beeper Support

I am writing a computer program that plays . Wav files through the built-in pc speaker, and yet when i run it, it either chokes up mid-way or doesn't seem to work at all. I know this program worked on an xp machine and was able without any problems to output music from the beeper (even if it sounded as if it was coming from the inside of a tin can :). Has windows 7 abandoned direct access to old hardware like the pc speaker, is it emulated, or what is stopping it from working properly? I know that my program is accessing the hardware in the correct manner, so what's up?

Computer Speaker Problems - Audio Drivers

I have a dell, windows 7 ultimate computer. I just recently got it from a friend, but it is brand new. The speakers are plugged in properly, into the computer and into the outlet. The power light on the speaker is on.

When i go to plug the speaker into the computer, it makes a static feedback noise. Now, when i try to listen to a song on limewire or itunes, it says the audio can not be played back.

There may not be a sound device on your computer or speakers installed. I understand the speakers are installed though. Ive tried looking for drivers on dell. Ca , but it never lets me finish downloading.

Can't Share Internet To Lan From Huawei 3g Internet Adaptor

I am in severe need of some help because i am about to go crazy trying to figure this out. I recently upgraded my mom's pc to windows 7 and i'm having trouble getting her network back in order. She has a huawei mobile broadband adaptor (3g), model ec168, that i'm trying to use to supply internet to her laptop and xbox360 via her router. I had it working for the last year when windows xp was still on her pc, but since installing windows 7, i can't get it to work. I'm using the same settings as i was before but i get nothing.
Here are the settings that used to work:

1. I enabled internet connection sharing on her 3g adaptor and shared it to the lan adaptor.

2. I set the lan's ip address to "192. 168. 0. 1"/subnet mask was the usual "255. 255. 255. 0" and the default gateway/dns server fields were left blank (since the pc was serving as the gateway and the dns sever).

3. I turned off dhcp on the router and set the router's ip to "192. 168. 0. 10"

4. I left the xbox360 and laptop set to "automatic"

With these settings it worked like a champ on xp, but i get nothing on windows 7. Also, everytime i turn ics "on" through the 3g adaptor, it says that it has assigned the ip address of "192. 168. 137. 1" to the lan. Not sure why but it does.

Security Updates Stop Internet Explorer From Connecting To Internet

All ie7 security updates i install (cumulative or not) cause ie7 to not be able to connect to the internet. I have to uninstall the security update in order to connect to the internet. I have windows vista 64, ie7 and cable internet. I have checked for virus's several time using microsoft security essentials and malwarebytes antivirus and it always comes back clean. I am also running windows firewall and have put internet explorer on the exception list as well as turned it off to see if that was causing it from connecting and it did nothing. Can someone please tell me how to fix this.

Wireless Internet Is Connected But No Internet Access

I just bought a new computer with os windows 7. As i was doing the set-up, it asked about the home wireless network and i identified it and entered the internet key. After the set-up was over, i cannot connect to the wireless network. It says connected and no internet access. It has the public icon and "unidentified network".

I have a "network error" window that keeps popping up that says "another computer on this network has the same ip address". I tried one of the solutions on this site to resolve it. I used the command prompt to release and renew the ip address and seems to not have worked. How can i get a valid ip address? And how can i make my computer recognize the home wireless network?

Creative Sb0490 Usb Sound Blaster External Sound Card

My external sound blaster card sb0490 works on my xp machine. When connected to my windows 7 machine almost everything except creative mediasource player gives the error message "the audio device supported by this application is not detected". The mediasouce player works ok.

The driver is usb_w7drv_lb_1_01_0099. The usb bus controller is "usb composite device" using driver file usbccgp.sys version 6. 1. 7600. 16385 (win7_rtm. 090713-1255). An update search confirms this driver software is up to date. The windows 7 compatibility center reports "information coming soon" for this hardware. Has anybody a solution?

Fallout 3 Stops Working

I installed the patches and such manually (new to games for windows live and fallout 3 on the pc) i have using factory standard components with this 2009/2010 laptop and i have played eve and wow pretty easily (though i uninstalled most of these games because fallout has a special spot on my pc lol) and heard people say if i run eve on max settings i shouldn't have probs with fallout 3. I have windows 7 os. Everytime i hit new game, it goes to the desktop, says it stopped working (mouse disappears) so i have to ctrl+alt+delete to get my mouse back and have to hit close program. I have done everything it told me to do. I have not put mods or anything in, i have made and connected to gfw as well.

Below is a reply to someone telling me to use system requirements lab.com

I did but i find that it does not support or is compatible with what i have, as it says i can't run command & conquer 3 or any of the other games that i do or did run

This is what happened when i read the read-me file and tried to "update" my drivers and such
Ok about half an hour ago, i actually started to read the readme. It said i should update my drivers and such. I searched, went to dell and got a idt sound thing, and another driver thing for my chipset. But when i did the idt thing for my sound it said restart, i restart, and then it says "windows has encountered a problem and has to shut down" it restarted itself as well. It may have been that death screen but i have never experienced it, what did i do wrong? Did i damage my computer? The sound is fine, i don't know what happened, what do i do?

Here is why i can't do system restore:- the point on restore . Um . I have always tried to restore (only had for a month) and it always says i have too much memory, and i unselect all the optional things to do online restore. It seems fine as of now. I'm really only a computer geek at win95, and partial at that so i'm way new at this computer gaming. It's a dell computer, and my specs are in my profile.

What happens:- i said when i hit "new game" and hit "yes" it begins to load, then about 1 or 2 seconds of loading it crashes, saying fallout 3 has stopped working. I have used laptops with a lot of online games, don't know why f3 has given me these problems. I just spent so much on this and now i think i've screwed up my laptop, i don't know if i'm *** or sad right now. I'm not rich for custom, i'm only a senior in grad school.

Ie Briefly Stops Working

I've installed security essentials last week. Since then when i go to a website i get a popup that says "ie has stopped working". If i close the popup then it will actually go to that site. Also when i do a search off of google in the upper right hand corner of the screen, it will take me to thomasnet or some other site that doesn't help me at all. I'm using the verizon wireless card and this has not been a problem before the essentials was downloaded. Don't know if this is two separate issues or one is causing the other.

Calculator Stops Working

New pc (4 mo old) running win7. I keep the calc on my desktop throughout the day and just recently (last week or so) it stops working almost immediately after i start it. I have to go through the task manager to end it. Any other programs running at the same time are are not affected (office 2010, a text expander, and express scribe), as well as avast, msn im, live mail, and a couple gadgets in the background. Last thing installed was office 2010 a month ago and then that incessant adobe update today.

Cannot Complete Upgrade - Installation Just Stops

Cannot complete upgrade from win vista home premium 64 to win 7 home premium 64 using student offer, installation just stops at transferring files, settings and programs with no hd activity. I have tried upgrading my pc from vista home premium 64 to windows 7 home premium 64 four separate times, using microsoft's academic upgrade offer.

I use the upgrade option in installation, have tried both "online get latest installations updates" and "do not get latest install updates" and my upgrade goes fine all the way to the end when it should be moving my files, settings, and programs over to win 7  from vista, this is after win 7 has been installed at this point everything just stops, no hd activity, computer is not locked up though, caps lock still works, can move mouse, can even hit the x button in the installation window and get the message "installation cannot be canceled now. Etc. ", But the computer is not doing anything because no hd activity, i even left it on for 8 hours and no movement what so ever once it gets to this point.

I ran microsoft windows upgrade advisor the downloadable one and the one win 7 installation runs, and according to it everything should upgrade fine. I know this is extremely frustrating, i updated my drivers and everything yet it still get stuck at the end. I think doing a custom install would work, but i did not want to have to re-install everything, if i would have wanted to do a clean install, i would have purchased win 7 professional for the same price as home premium, since it is the version i preferred, but just to lazy to re-install everything on my pc.

The pc i am trying to install it on is a new system, just built in march of this year, core i7 920 system, and i even took it back down to stock clock in the bios, just in case that was causing problems. Anyone have any ideas, besides doing a custom install?

Hp 6110 Printer Stops Printing

Hp 6110 all-in-one printer stops printing one-tenth of the way down the page over & over (using windows 7, netgear wireless print server). We have a netgear 54 mbps wireless print server (model wgps606) that is hooked up to our hp officejet 6110 all-in-one (printer, copier, scanner, fax). We have three laptops printing to the 6110 through the print server. Two of the laptops are older and are running older versions of windows. My new laptop is running windows 7 home premium.

The older laptops have no problem printing to the 6110 through the print server. My new laptop can print to the 6110 through the print server but what happens is that it prints one-tenth or so of the first page, then stops and feeds the rest of the sheet through without printing, then starts reprinting, stopping one-tenth, stops and feeds through. Finally the whole page prints but usually after a bunch of partial pages print. This is entirely frustrating and is wasting a lot of paper & ink. I'm thinking it could be a problem with windows 7. Any thoughts?

Usb Hub Stops Working

I have just installed windows 7 ultimate x64 but i have a problem with the usb ports not recognizing devices after a period of time. After startup, everything is fine, but after a period of time (10 minutes / 10 hours) the usb ports stop recognizing everything that is plugged in (an external hdd, a usb drive, a printer).

Standard ms drivers are installed and updating them tells me the best drivers are installed. Running a nforce 610i-7100 chipset, do i just need to update the chipset drivers?

If i restart the computer, everything is back working, without reinstalling drivers or anything, it is all recognized again and functions fine, until the usb ports suddenly stop working and i have to restart again. My system has a core 2 quad q9300 processor with 4gb ram, previously running vista business sp2 x86. This is obviously a clean install.

Explorer.exe Stops Working

Double clicking on my computer icon usually displays the explorer page. In my case it hangs for ever and if you shut it down it displays the message explorer stopped working, resets the entire desktop and restarts. Same if i use the windows key + e. What is interesting is that i can see the contents of my computer using the link of my documents without a problem. I have tried turning off indexing, repair using command line sfc /scannow (as administrator) no problem found, and fix it for internet explorer. I would appreciate any help / advise.

Mail Stops Sending And Receiving

I have had windows mail on my system for 2 years now and suddenly it's started having problems with sending and receiving mail. This is not 100% of the time, but intermittent - it's been ok for all day for example but now it's failing to connect and is coming up with the error message 0x800cc13. My iphone is thankfully still downloading mail in the interim so i don't think this is a server issue.

I'm using windows vista and this may be coincidence but i'm sure this has only started happening since the latest windows update. Any / all advice would be welcome, i'm using windows mail for work and this is really proving a bugbear.

System Image Recovery Stops

I had to send my laptop in for an rma, so i made a system image of my drives using the windows 7 backup utility. I have a single 250gb hard drive which is partitioned into two different drives. My c: had mostly windows 7 files and some programs while my d: had game installations and was used for general storage. When i received the laptop back (they just had to replace my dvd drive), i noticed they reformatted my hard drive and threw windows vista back on the thing, but the partitions still looked to be the same as before.

My system images were stored on a 1tb external drive, so i booted off of a windows 7 recovery cd and attempted to restore the c: and d: drives. After 13 minutes in the progress bar reaches about 1/3 of the way in. The hard drive activity light switches from always on to just flickering every couple seconds and no more progress is made. I've given it over an hour just sitting at this spot, but no matter how much time is given, the restore does not progress.

I've tried changing different options in the restore utility (only restoring one drive, formatting the drives to match the images and not), but no matter what i do, i get the same problem. I've also tried running the system image recovery from a windows 7 disk and from within windows 7 after a clean install. Does anyone have any suggestions? When i made the system image, i was told it was successful.
