How To Enable Multiple Different Audio Output On Win 7 ?


How to enable multiple audio output on windows 7? Speaker and headset play different audio. In vista and xp it did it automatically. If i was running media center and media player at the same time. And connected a usb headset. Media player would automatically play through the headset and media center will go to the speakers. Why is this feature gone?

Cannot Enable Audio Device

I have a laptop toshiba tecra m11 with w7 64 pro. After a windows update i do not have any more sound. I cannot enable the audio device. - I do not have a restore point to use

- I have tried to disable/enable the sound card
- I have tried to de-install and re-install the sound card
- I have tried both drivers, 1 from the toshiba support website, one from the sound card manufacturer, realtek. Both not working

- Windows device manager tells that the sound card is working properly even if there is a cross (white cross inside a red circle) telling 'no speakers or headphones are plugged in".

- After running the troubleshooter, i am told the audio device is disable. I cannot enable it. I would like some sound. Any help ?

How To Change Default Audio Output?

I have an evga 790i ftw motherboard and am using the optical connection on the back for sound. It is connected to my stereo receiver. As of right now, i go to sounds, then select digital audio as my output, and go to properties. Under "supported formats" i can select dts or dolby digital, and when i press test, everything checks out. Afterwards, i go to "advanced" and the default format will only let me select a 2 channel, and that is all that plays out of my stereo. How do i go about changing my output to that of 5. 1 or 7. 1?

No Audio Output Device Installed

I had the same problem before. I upgraded to windows 7, had the red "x" on the audio and fixed it pretty easily with realtek high def audio driver. That's all i can remember from that. Well i bought a new printer and had to downgrade back to vista and that's when the sound messed up again. I tried to fix it with vista but was told i should go back to windows 7 so i did and the problem still persists.

I have a compaq presario sr5113wm and from my knowledge my sound card model is a creative sb live! Series (wdm). Everytime i start my computer the action center pops up with messages saying "address your sound card" or something like that so when i go to the device manager to check the sound, video and game controllers the only option listed is my webcam mic. Realtek or creative are not listed and i tried installing and uninstalling everything and i still get nothing! I keep getting people telling me to take the sound card out but i really want to leave that as a last resort and try to fix this technically. I've done it before but maybe i'm missing something.

Simultaneous Digital Audio Output

Windows 7 is about perfect for my home theater application with the single exception limiting audio output to a single default device. In my setup i have an hdmi cable carrying both audio and video to my tv and i want to use the toslink optical to carry the audio to a second receiver that powers speakers in other parts of my house. Question - do you plan to enable simultaneous digital (or simultaneous digital/analog) audio output in an anticipated service pack release? Please look into this because having to switch default output is a pain.

No Audio Output Device Is Installed

I've already tried updating the driver, but the solution did not work and none of the other solutions are possible for me to even try. I haven't had problems with sound until randomly a little while ago. I have a dell inspiron 1440 on windows 7 64 bit home premium. On the bottom corner, there is a red x next to the sound icon and when i check for playback and recording devices, it just says that none are installed. This is a very frustrating problem.

Audio Output Device Is Not Installed

I just got the "no audio output device is installed" message for the second time. I can't remember what i did last time to fix it, but i've tried everything that people have suggested on multiple threads concerning this. It was literally working last night as i was listening to music, today when i turned it on it said i had no audio output installed. I have an hp pavillion dv9500. I upgraded from vista home 32-bit to windows 7 pro 64-bit, but never had a real problem until now.

I tried to find the driver on the hp site, but the driver didn't work. I've even tried to restore my computer to a week ago when i got a system update, but it keeps failing. There is also an exclamation mark on the co-processor under other devices in the device manager, but i have no idea what it is, and my sound, video, and game controller section pulled a houdini on me. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Audio Output Device Not Working

I have a toshiba a215-s7444 laptop that i have had for 2yrs. It originally came with vista 32 bit installed and 2gb of ram and i added 1gb of ram a year later and all was fine. I recently did a format and custom install of se7en 64 bit. Now everytime that i resumed form "hibernation mode" i had no audio and got the error message that "no audio device is installed and it does not even appear in the device manager. When it runs the diagnostic it tells me that "new hardware may have not been detected. Now upon reboot everything is fine.

I have audio and in the device manager is the realtek hi-definition audio device. But resuming from sleep mode everything worked just fine. Ok so i updated the windows experience index score hoping that it would recognize the new hardware change. But the prob. Persisted. So the other night i added another 1 gig of ram for a total of 4gb. And all 4 gigs are being used, in the control panel>system and security>system it says installed memory (ram): 4 gb ram (3. 87 usable).

So i am fairly sure that it has recognized the added hardware change. Now after adding the 4th gig it recovers from hibernation mode just fine but when coming out of sleep mode i lose my audio device. Until i reboot or restart-lol. Anybody have any ideas besides the obvious just use hibernation mode only. Or is this a question for the toshiba forums?

Hard Coding Audio Output To Channels

I have the following setup. A windows 7 htpc with a 8 channel compliant audio output. The audio and video work perfectly when i am connected only through my receiver which is a fully compliant 8 channel input. However, when i use an hdmi splitter connected to my receiver and my tv the audio downgrades to 2 channel stereo. I know that is the way hdmi is supposed to work, go to the lowest common denominator. However, i have confirmed that my tv can accept 8 channel audio input.

I confirmed this by disconnecting the tv when the pc booted and then started a movie on the internal blu-ray player. After i confirmed that i have 8 channel audio i then i reconnect the tv and the audio on both devices work. So my question is, is it possible to hard code the audio output to 8 channels? Just to confirm, both devices are hdcp compliant.

Keyboard Input - Audio Output Timing Lag

I have a new dell vistro 1720 running windows 7 pro, 3 gb of memory. I've installed microsoft's virtual pc and am running a xp virtual pc because of a legacy app our business requires. It's all running great except for a timing skip/lag in the keyboard input and audio output. I don't mind the audio skips but a one or two second delay in displaying what i'm typing is bothersome. I've increased the amount of allocated memory to the virtual pc and reset the process priority to high with no discernible difference. Any ideas?

Multiple Audio Devices

Like many people, i have a television connected to my pc as a secondary monitor (extended desktop). My television is connected through the hdmi port on my video card, which includes high-def audio. I also have a pair of desktop speakers next to my primary monitor, which are connected via the analog line-out jack. I'm having trouble finding a satisfactory way to specify audio output to the correct pair of speakers for the display i'm using. I've set-up the volume control options to display both available devices, and they are both enabled.

Ideally, what i'd like is for any window placed on the extended desktop (tv) to automatically send audio to the television speakers, and for application windows on the primary monitor to send audio to the line out (desktop speakers). If it can't be done automatically, can i specify which audio device each window uses individually? Or, is it possible to have both devices playing simultaneously, with the option of muting one device or the other?

What i'd like to be able to do, for example, is watch a movie on my tv with sound through the television speakers, while my wife plays a game or surfs the web using the desktop monitor with her audio routed through the desktop speakers. If this cannot be done through windows 7, is it likely that audio or video drivers would have this feature? Is there third-party software or hardware that can do this?

System info:

Pc - dell inspiron 580
Os - windows 7 home premium
Video  - nvidia geforce gt 220
Audio -    realtek high definition audio

Hdmi Output Not Working

About a year ago, i used to use an hdmi cable to connect my computer running vista to my hdtv. Everything worked great. After a while (a few weeks), the hdmi sound stopped working, and the hdmi device disappeared from sound. I never found an answer to the problem. Then i upgraded to windows 7 and the problem persisted. After a little while longer, every time i connected to my tv, the image on the screen would turn yellow. So now neither sound or video is working correctly. I know it is the computer's issue because it is the same on both of my tvs. How can i fix this problem?

Sb Live S Pdif Output

How can microsoft claim on their compatibility page that creative's sb live 24bit pci (chipset sb0410) is playing nicely with the new kid on the block, when they (or the hardware manufacturer) have yet to fix the spdif output on this device? It has been this way since vista. I know because i tried both vista and the beta of 7 on my htpc because the video is supposed to be superior to xp (ie directcompute). But what good does it do to trade one headache for another?

I am not going to buy another piece of hardware because a manufacturer is not communicating with ms or their own support side well enough to address these issues. I guess i'll just keep using an "antiquated" version of windows until someone gets this right. In the meantime, ms please take this piece of hardware off of your checked off list. That bothers me because in shopping for an updated sound card based on that list, how can i trust that spdif will work at all on my next purchase. Should i just assume windows 7 has it under control. Yeah, heard that one before (windows me anyone?).

Output To 2 Sound Cards Simultaneously

I have many reasons why i would want to output to multiple sound cards simultaneously. I know i am not the only one who was this problem based on a couple quick bing searches. I would like to be able to output sound to multiple sound cards at the same time instead of having to switch the "default device" in the audio panel all the time i want them all to be the default device. I want to use my usb headset and my speakers at the same time. I know windows is capable of this because while one is playing i can "test" the other and they both play sound at the same time as far as i know there is simply no setting for this.

Hdmi Output Is Black And White

Built myself a screamer, core i7 920, gigabyte x58, 6gb triple channel ocz ram and a powercolor (ati) 5770. Got it running, hooked it up via hdmi to my sony bravia 40" and everything was sweet. After about a week, the color disappeared. I get color on the sony during post and the windows 7 (x64) logo but as soon as windows loads: no color on the sony. If i switch to vga, i get color. But it is a 30 foot run to the sony and i get ghosting via vga.

I have checked and rechecked all color and resolution settings in both windows and catalyst 10. 2 control panels. I was about to rma the video card but the color during post and windows startup makes me think it will do no good. I have been scouring google for answers but as yet i haven't found the answer.

Help anyone?

Cannot Enable Win 7 Firewall

I recently purchased a new hp laptop with windows 7 home premium. However, i cannot activate my firewall. When i go into my firewall settings from the control panel, it doesn't even allow me to click the 'turn windows firewall on or off' option to the left. Now, it stated in my firewall settings that "these settings are being managed by vendor application norton firewall provider".

So i thought perhaps my norton firewall was interfering with it, so i turned off its smart firewall. But i still can't turn on my windows firewall. In fact, i cannot click most of the options in my firewall settings at all (turn firewall on/off, restore defaults, change settings etc). The only thing i can click is the advanced settings and troubleshoot.

Enable Bidirectional Support

I have installed a printer/fax to the main computer on my home network. It is working fine on this computer which is vista, the laptops are both windows 7. I successfully installed it onto one laptop through the network and am able to print from the laptop. The other laptop, although it installs it, (through add printer and network) wont allow me to print. Shows error 0x0000000d. I have tried installing it locally as suggested in the forum, and as before, it installs but wont print. Tells me to. Enable bi directional support.

When i go into ports, it wont allow me to click onto this. I have even tried installing directly from the cd using the usb cable. Once again it installs but wont print and tells me to turn on bi directional support. How can i turn it on if it is greyed out? All the drivers and networking settings are set correctly. When i attempt to print, the message comes up unable to connect to printer, turn on bi directional support. This is greyed out though.

Re Enable Mail In Win7

Hi, many users would be very thankful if microsoft would re-enable windows mail included in windows 7. Is there any chance that they will listen to users regarding this? Not all people wanna use windowslive mail, specially when original windows mail from vista is still included in windows 7, but disabled by default. Windows contacts folder in home directory is also present and working, but i cannot send mail from there until i re-enable windows mail again.

If you wanted to remove windows mail, you should delete entire windows mail program folder also with contacts folder and not only disable it, hide executable and disappoint large group of users. Windows live mail installs many additional services and using separate folders for every mail account what is very annoying. Why you wanna force users to use live services/applications if they want simple mail client for one or two pop3 accounts? Current tutorial for enabling windows mail >>> http://www.Sevenforums.com/tutorials/5481-windows-mail.html even if i can follow this guide, it would be very nice from microsoft if they would release very small optional update to enable windows mail. It's really easy and disabling windows mail was imo bad decision.

Who can i contact to get this message to correct people?My suggestion would be similar like that tutorial, only with two changes. - Modify mail code and remove from toolbar windows calendar button. (Currently not working without downloading vista calendar)- modify windows mail toolbar to look like windows 7 explorer (no icons, light blue color and blue text)doing all this must be for your programmers so easy that it is not even worth mentioning. Hey microsoft! You cannot imagine how many users would this small change make happy and sell even more copies of windows 7.

How To Enable Power Icon?

When i installed windows 7 last weekend, there was a power icon in the system tray that i unintentionally disabled. How do i get it back? There is no entry for power when i click customize on the systray so i can't enable it through the ui. I also looked in the registry to verify that the icon was not disabled there.
 
The ups shows up in the device manager and powercfg correctly identifies it (apc es550). The battery is obviously working because i can unplug the ups and the machine continues to work. It would be nice though, to be able to see the battery status.

I've read a number of messages from people complaining about the power icon but i'd be happy just to see it. What's the secret here?

Hdtv Desktop Output - Full Screen

When i first connected my hdtv via hdmi and duplicated the desktop on both laptop and tv, i got a full screen image (at 1366x768). Now, i get a small sized desktop in the middle of the hdtv, unless i only display the desktop on the hdtv (at 1080 lines) and not the laptop. How do i change this back? Also, i used to have the functionality when i hit fn+f5 that it cycled through a range of different display output modes. However, now i need to use windows+p to cycle through projector modes. Any ideas what's changed?

Sound Mixer In Playback Or Output Mode

Where can i get sound mixer in playback (or output) mode? I got this new sony vaio notebook from bestbuy to replace my old one, toshiba satellite window me (i have other computer desktops) recently. With my old toshiba, i frequently visited music chatting room and sang songs through microphone while playing karaoke music from my notebook. When i used output mixer mode i can broadcast both my singing and music in the chatting room. But with this sony, i can not broadcast music file in chatting room but i can sing and my singing can be broadcasted in chatting room.

I do not know if this is a problem of window 7 (because it does not support), or it is the problem of sony (because no proper sound card? Not sure), or it even is the problem of plugin and play software provided by the host of chatting room.

Re Enable Taskbar And Window Transparency

I'm running windows 7 home premium on a brand new asus ul50a series notebook. This morning i got an "important" microsoft update message, and so i updated my laptop, rebooted, and noticed that my taskbar and window borders were no longer transparent. Before the update everything worked fine, but now this does not work. Everything, so far, works excellent except the transparency issue. I would like to find out how to fix this problem without having to do a system restore since i've already put a lot of important files onto my new laptop. Here are some screenshots of my not-correctly-working windows 7 personalize settings:

Anyone know how to fix this, so i can pick my taskbar color and opacity settings?
