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.

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?

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.

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?

Choosing A Program To Open A File

I was opening a file and right clicked to open the file, it was a picture file, and used the, "open with. " Command. I selected a program and left the check box below to have that program be the selected program for this kind of file, and all of my files from documents and other non-picture files changed to the particular program icon. All of the taskbar's pinned files/programs like control panel and the file library were all changed to be open by this particular program. It was the windows photo viewer.

I had to restore my computer in order to get it back to using the files in their normal programs. Even my files and programs on the start menu changed. I attempted to change one program back to its original state and left the box checked again, it then changed all my files and programs to this other program. How can i correct this problem so when i have a file i want to use with a certain program i can make that particular program the default but without changing all my other files and programs?

Cannot Open 64-bit Adobe Program

I bought a new dell xps 8100 64 bit machine. Then i installed my adobe cs4 and lightroom 2. Neither one will open. I am getting run around from dell and adobe techs. Both says its the others problem. Both want me to spent an additional 200 dollars, for software help, after spending 1000 on computer and 1400 for adobe products. I have used both on my old win xp system with no problems ever.

Now buy this great new high tech computer, 64 bit, and now can not use either program. Has anyone else experience a problem with this issue? If so, have you resolved it? Please help if you can. I have already spent over 5 hours on telephone between the two companies since i received my new computer 3 days ago.

Error - File Or Folder Open Or In Use By Another Program

I am using windows 7 64-bit on an asus laptop, and recently ran into a strange problem. I have a shared hard drive on a desktop pc that stores all of my working files. I often work from the laptop across my wireless network, working on files stored on my desktop hard drive. The desktop is running win xp professional.

When i try and move a folder on the desktop hard drive using the laptop running win 7 i am getting the error"file or folder open or in use by another program, please close the program and try again"
The files are not open on the desktop or elsewhere on the laptop either, but nothing i do seems to unlock these files so they can be managed remotely from the laptop across the wireless network.

I found one forum post that said something about having to unlock the permissions for the file in windows 7? Is this the problem? And if so, how would one go about doing that? I have checked the permissions of the folders themselves, and they are set to full read write access for everyone, so i don't know what i could possibly change. This is a very annoying glitch, having to go to my desktop every time i need to move or delete a file from my shared hard drive!

Also i have had no problems in the past w/ my previous two laptops managing files across my network on this particular desktop drive. Those were running win xp home and media center edition.

Always Use The Selected Program To Open This Kind Of File

In my open with window the "always use the selected program to open this kind of file" tick box is greyed out. I have a couple of programs on my w7 (64-bit) pc that will not automatically open when i click on a file associated with them. For example, i have a file which was created in onenote 2003.

When i want to open this file, i double click it and instead of onenote 2003 just loading and opening the file, the open with window comes up asking me to choose a program to run this file. I manually choose onenote 2003 and then try to tick the box opposite "always use the selected program to open this kind of file". But this is greyed out for some reason. And so every time i want to look at that file in onenote 2003 i have to go though this same manual process to select that program to view it.

Default Program / Icon Open Up Issue

My sister recently received an hp notebook as a gift with windows 7 installed on it out of the box. For the first few weeks it was running fine and then sometime last week while uploading pictures from her digital camera on the default program, it did something to where all the icons on the desktop and the start menu are the microsoft office picture manager icon. Whenever you click any icon, say for google chrome, or itunes, it will open up picture manager. The only icons ive been able to get anywhere with have been the system tools and i am not really sure what to uninstall to make the default program go away.

Can't Open Downloads Folder, File Does Not Have A Program Associated With It

"this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the default programs control panel". As far as i can tell, all my other folders open up fine. Last thing i did was trying to download some software that would gradually turn my volume down so that i could fall asleep to it. It didn't work (older software, seemed like it wasn't compatible with windows 7) so i deleted the application and the installer which were located in my downloads folder.

Choose The Program You Want To Open This File Dialog Issue

As i described, the dialog appears after each restart. It occurs after i have entered my log-in credentials and proceeded to windows. It seems to be fairly late in the boot process as things like chat programs and widgets are fully loaded by the time the dialog appears.

The dialog appears to be the standard "open with" dialog in windows 7.

Specifically the dialog reads:

Choose the program you want to open this file:
 
File: mathew [this is my user id and there is no extension shown)

If i open the file in something like notepad, then the below information is presented (the #'s are real numbers, but these looked like mac addresses so i left them out).

Windows 7 Freeze In Normal Mode, Safe Mode Works Fine

I am out of ideas. Three days ago my computer started freezing within a few minutes after startup. Freezes with no mouse movement and no keyboard. Must shutdown using the power button. Happens every time i start in normal mode. Safe mode works fine. I have done quite a bit of reading and tried a number of things, so far to no avail. Quite a few error codes present, here are some:

Winlog 6000
Service 7001
Distrib 10005
Service 7026
Event log 1101
Kernel 41
Browser 8032
Load perf 3011
Load perf 3012

I have tried restoring, turning off all non-microsoft services, disabling sound, updating video driver, memory test, adjusting bios per g skill tech forum. All hardware showing normal operation in device manager.

I can't find the minidump .dmp folder in c:/windows. The only location i find for .dmp files is in the watchdog folder, and there are quite a few in there. Let me know if i need to upload them.

My computer is a couple of months old and has been working flawlessly until this happened with one exception. (I have been getting occasional monitor blanking for a couple of seconds followed by a notification that the graphics driver has stopped responding and was successfully restored. )
