No Sound Device Strange Results


6 months ago i installedá windows 7 32 bit evaulation copy build 7100, installed all drivers for my external devices. I am using a motu 896 firewire as my audio device. Everything worked beautiful. Last week i decided to install a newly purchased copy of windows 7 home premium. I decided to install a fresh install of the 64 bit version. The install went perfect and i activated it. I installed the motu drivers from there website (as i did 6 months ago) but the 64 bit flavor. The installed , ok and i rebooted and plugged in the device and turn it on, the plug&play triggered and found the device and installed the drivers and said device is ready to use.

I go to the control panel, to the sound section and it says no audio devices found. I check the system devices and the drivers are loaded an they state they are working properly, not yellow flags and no sound. I tried contacting moto but they had no clue since i had it working in the eval copy of windows 7. The only difference was i installed 64 bit, so i removed and installed the 32 bit version but ended up with the same results.

How can the eval version work and the purchased version does not.

Strange Sound When Ie7 Loads New Url

There is a strange sound intermittently being broadcast from ie7, it usually occurs when i type a new url into the window, but sometimes the noise occurs when the window is active. I tried a number of antivirus programs and everything is negative. I changed the control panel sound from blank to windows default. The sound still occurs as before, it sounds like a kazoo blast. I have a screen capture with audio, you can here the sound at http://www.Youtube.com/watch?V=jcvyowsqnta

Can you tell me what sound file format internet explorer uses for it's various prompts? (Wav, mp2, wma ) and which default directory path?

No Sound Device Installed

I have upgraded from vista 32bit to windows 7 ultimate 64bit, i have not made any hardware changes, apart from formatting my hard drive and then clean installing windows 7. It i saying that i don't have a sound card, which i do, i have a creative t9700, i cannot find drivers for it and when i troubleshoot it to let it find its own drivers it returns without any drivers. I have installed windows 7 as a present for my father who hates me going anywhere near his stuff because i am cursed with this unlucky streak of if it can go wrong it will.

A2dp Stereo Sound Device Issue

I am trying to run an a2dp stereo sound device (lintech bluelino 1. 04) on windows 7 home premium 64 bit. The device driver does install, but the device does not show up in the "sounds" section of the control panel. The device driver (actually two devices, a remote control device and the sound device itself) installs without errors. But the device does not show up in the device manager (before installing, unknown devices were listed there, but they disappeared after the installation). I wonder if it should already show up there.

I am now usingá (32bit) vista drivers - i directed the installation to the old vista partition where it found the driver, after a first installation attempt had failed with a message that the correct driver was not found. The device also does not show up in the "sounds" section of the control panel as it did in vista, so i cannot select it as a standard device for sound output.

Strange Program Fonts

I found a large font pack and installed it on my computer. Apparently, adobe fireworks throws a fit with a certain font that i installed, and all of my fonts from the fonts folder were deleted and it wouldn't let me install anymore fonts, they would auto-delete (at least that's what it looked like). I found a solution online which said to delete your fonts registry folder, create a new one, and restart. I did that and re-installed only the standard windows fonts. That fixed the problem and everything seemed normal.

My problem is that on some programs i have, they are displaying strange fonts. They didn't used to do this, but they are now. It's making the programs really hard to use as the fonts are really distorted. It's not on all programs i'm using, only a select few. I've tried reinstalling them to no avail. Does anybody have any ideas?á

Keyboard Acts Strange

I have a problem with my keyboard, i'm running w7 32 with all updates. Each time i start up the keyboard is in some strange state on its own. This is what's happening: when i press "1" my pc is starting whatever shortcut there is just next to the windows start button. By, pressing "m" it minimizes the current window. The thing i need to do is to press "l" by which my pcálogs off, then i have to hit the "switch user" button and log in again.

After that, everything is running fine expect a few things. To make a capital "l" (l) i am used to hold the right shift button and press "l", now it does not work that way for "l". It is the only latter for which to make it capital i have to hold the left shift button. I am also sometimes using the polish keyboard layout, and i cant make some special polish characters, like the variation of "l" and "o". Any other works fine like a=, z=╝, ║ and so on.

Sometimes after using the computer for a wile after logging off and on, the keyboard starts to act strange again, like when i first turn the computer on. Any idea that this is? My only idea it that my keyboard starts in some shortcut-using-state, but i have all the ease of access stuff turned off.

Keyboard Acting Strange

I'm not sure if this was caused by the recent update from microsoft, but at-least the problem started occurring after i installed the latest patch for windows 7 (cumulative security update for internet explorer 8 for windows 7 for x64-based systems (kb980182)).

My keyboard works as normal, but sometimes the keyboard starts acting very strange, typing letters on its own or not working at all or even being stuck at letters. For instance, if im playing a game or typing all of a sudden the keyboard starts to type "|5" and stuff like that which i know i didn't press.

Im using a hp hdx16 1300-eo, updated all useful drivers from their homepage as well. Has anyone else experienced this before or after the latest update? I couldn't find anything about this.

Strange Behaviour - Virus?

For starters, i'm running windows 7 home premium on a core2 duo with an nvidia geforce gts 250. Everything was running fine yesterday, but today i have several odd/annoying things happening with my machine.

1) when i mouse over running apps in my task bar in order to bring up the mini previews, they only show up for a split-second. They will repeatedly flicker as i move my mouse back and forth over the icons, but never stay there for more than that moment. Unless i focus the task bar by clicking somewhere on it. Even disabling aero leaves me with flickering tool-tips when i mouse over task bar icons.

2) alt+tab behaves similarly, i hold alt then press tab. The switcher window pops up for a split-second then goes away, having no effect. I can get alt+tab to behave properly if i completely disable aero.

3) pressing the windows key to bring up the start menu only works intermittently, it will sometimes bring it up on the first press, sometimes i have to press it several times, and it's not a matter of lag/needing to wait for it to pop up, it just won't pop up.

4) sometimes when i open a new window, or when i get a dialog box in an existing window, it will pop up underneath existing windows instead of somewhere i can see it.

5) this one may not be related, but it just started today so i figured i'd note it here; in chrome, doing a google search and using the arrow keys to navigate the auto-complete menu, it will skip lines. (I press the down arrow to go to the first result, the selection moves down once when i depress the key and once more when i let up on the key. ) As far as i know, no settings have been changed since when things were working and now.

I ran the visual effects troubleshooter and it found nothing. I've ran a full scan with adaware and ms security essentials and gotten a clean bill of health. I tried removing my video drivers and installing the most up-to-date beta drivers from nvidia, no change. Changing themes to classic and back does nothing. It may go without saying, but rebooting doesn't help.

I've been browsing around for a few hours looking for people reporting similar problems, but none of the solutions i've seen so far have had any effect. I guess if i have to, i will reinstall/repair windows, but i'd sure like to avoid that if possible. It sure sounds like some kind of virus could cause all these things, but it's odd that nothing at all has shown up on my scans.

Strange Problem Adding Second Drive

I am trying to add a second seagate barracuda 7200. 11 1. 5 gig drive to my computer. I am running a cleanly installed windows 7 64 bit on an msi p55-gd80 mobo with 8 gig of ram. The operating system is installed on a western digital drive, and i already have a seagate barracuda 7200 installed as a storage drive (as well as a seagate freeagent usb external drive that functions normally).

When i added the second seagate 7200 drive and booted, windows went through 'installing device driver' and then informed me that the driver could not be installed; searching for a new driver proved fruitless. I found that if i unplugged the seagate that is already installed and plugged in the new drive, it would show up normally, and i was able to format it and assign a drive letter.

However, when i rebooted with both drives installed, only one shows up as a functioning drive. In device manager, the non-functioning drive appears under 'other devices' with a question mark as 'st31500341as ata device'. When i check its properties, it says 'the drivers for this device are not installed (code 28)'.

The irony of course is that some drivers must be installed because a single seagate 7200 will work. The other irony is that i actually have two new seagate 7200's that i figured i'd just connect and life would go on. Now i'd be satisfied if i could get only one of them to work alongside the one already installed. The drives must be functioning because i've formatted them both and copied files onto one of them when it was the only seagate installed.

Any ideas on what might be going on? Anything to try?

Files Do Not Appear In Search Results

I am having a problem with two files not being indexed and not showing up in searches in windows explorerá(windows 7 ultimate 64 bits).

The files are two jpgs that a friend sent me over email. I saved them in a subfolder in the picture folder and tagged them with windows live photo gallery.

When i search for the pictures in the windows live photo gallery, they show up immediately (i can search by file name or any of the tags). However, when i search for them from the start menu or from the explorer search bar, they are invisible: if i type any of the tags or their file name, they do not show up, even when i am in the folder containing such files (all other files in the same folder are indexed correctly).

I right clicked each file, then properties. In the general tab, i then clicked on advanced and i found out that the checkbox "allow this file content to be indexed [. ]" Was unchecked. I checked it, rebooted, rebuilt a search index, but the files still don't show up.

Is there some other properties i have to look at? Any workaround?

No Search Results On Usb Drive

When searching for files on usb external drive, i get no search results. Even when i search for a file name i know is in the folder i perform the search, i get no results. However, if i copy to my local hard drive, then search does find the file. Is there a setting i need to change to enable search to work on external usb attached drive?

Update Searches Endlessly, With No Results

Whenever i start windows update, the search bar activates, but it searches endlessly - up to a half hour or more. It doesn't identify any updates needed, nor say that there are no updates. Because of this ongoing problem, i have not been able to get any updates for months. I have checked and confirmed that the windows firewall is active, and no other firewalls are active.

Right now, i'm trying to install an ocr scanning "pen. " I installed the software, but can't install the device. It says "error updating the driver (hid:*windrvr6) with the inf file. " I hope to resolve this through windows update. However, in fact, when i type windrvr6. Inf in the search box on the start menu, it finds the file. I would welcome advice both about how to get windows update working, and about how to get the software can "find" this missing file.

Alps Touch Mouse Acts Strange After Waking From Sleep Mode

Whenever my new laptop wakes from sleep mode, the touch mouse enters some wacky mode and thinks that it is in magnify mode or some other strange mode. If i can manage to open the mouse control panel screen, i can sometimes reset the mouse. Also, if i force a reboot, the mouse works just fine.

I already returned my first hp pavillion dm3 computer to office depot thinking that there was a problem with the touch mouse, but my new computer does exactly the same thing. I have installed windows live and microsoft reader and firefox since bringing the new computer home yesterday. Plus whatever popped up on my screen asking me to update it (norton, i think, did an update).

I have 14 days (13 now) to get this problem fixed before i have to make a decision of whether or not to return this laptop from where i purchased it to get my money back. I hope someone can help. Before exchanging the laptop last time, i tried re-installing the alps touch mouse, but that did not help. From reading about windows 7, it appears that there are a lot of problems with computers waking from sleep.

My current theory is that there is a software conflict. The last time this happened, however, i had closed all of my open programs before closing my laptop lid, forcing it to go to sleep. That leads me to believe that if it is a software conflict, then it is with some system software running in the background.

It is almost as though the mousepad thinks that i am using two fingers to control it. So that the magnify button comes up. I have found that if i do use two fingers when it is acting this way, that i can fool it long enough to open the mouse control screen to force a reset. Once i do that, everything works fine again until it goes to sleep and wakes up again.

Explorer Searches Problem With Ordering Results By Full Path

Explorer searches no longer (i.e. Since xp) seem to allow ordering results by full path in the folder column. Open explorer, browse to "c:", search for "*. *Proj", lots of results, "folder" column (which used to show whole path logically) now shows last folder then first to last-but-one folder (e.g. "Aardvark(c:program files)"). This means that i cannot get a logical order when i order by this column. Very annoying when trying to find visual studio projects on my machine.

This sucks! I realize this is probably by design since the addition of libraries but it means that i have to reboot to ubuntu to do this type of search ordering now (pain!) If anyone knows a way around this to put folder as e.g. "C:program filesaardvark"i will be very grateful.

P. S. Please drop ntfs asap. Linux uses a modern file-system (ext4:2006), solaris uses a modern file-system (zfs:2004 - loved by codeproject.com) please don't keep using this slow and bad filesystem - the little improvements each year since 1993 are really started to seem sad and ineffectual.

Explorer Search In Win 7 Accumulate Results From Previous Searches

Why does explorer file search in windows 7 accumulate the results from previous searches and display them altogether? Explorer file search in windows 7 accumulates the results from previous searches and shows these historical searches under the latest set of results. Why?If this is how microsoft intended this to work, they must have lost the plot. The results list seems to get larger and larger, becoming unwieldy.

How do i get the search facility to only return a list of the file name typed into the search field - ie. If i am looking for all the "index.html" files in the 100 sub directories i am searching?How can i prevent this happening. All i want to see in the list is the 100 index.html files and not the previous files like benefits.html, contactmap.html, which i had searched for earlier. Nyone know how to make this work properly?

Browsers & Mail - Google Search Results In Blank Window

This is one of those out-of-the-blue things that just started the other day. When i do a google search, i'll get the first page of results no problem. If i click on any of the search suggestions at the bottom or click to go to the next page of results, the screen goes blank and that's that. Refreshing the page doesn't do anything either. I can open the search results themselves no problem, but anything that involves further searching from the first page doesn't work. This just happens in ie9, it works normally in firefox no probs. Also, this is only happening on my windows 7/64 laptop. On my windows 7/32 desktop all is a-okay.

I've tried emptying the temporary files/cookies etc. With ccleaner, and tried it in private mode as well where the cache and cookies are bypassed. Finally i then tried resetting ie (tools > internet options > advanced > reset). No dice. I can drag page links from the results page up to the tab bar and drop them there and they will open that way (in other words, to go to the next page of links i can click and hold the "next >" link or one of the page numbers at the bottom, drag it up to the tab bar and release and the next page will open in a tab. )

Media Center - Add Recording Search Fails - No Results Found

Windows media center seems to be getting the guide updates fine and my regularly scheduled programs are being recorded as they should be. I can use the guide or various other list mechanisms to see future programs but the add recording->search->title & ->keyword (where you actually have to type something in) fail. Type any letter, and it says, "no results found. " You can type an entire title to a show and it will not find it, yet i can find it using the add recording -> guide, and then a lot of scrolling. Search used to work, but now hasn't worked for several weeks (months?). Guide updates still work because my existing scheduled recordings get every new episode.

Error - Unknown Device - Usb Does Not Recognize Garmin Device

Just recently, windows 7 home premium addition has stopped detecting my garmin device. Other usb devices such as my ipod work fine. I was able to get it to detect the garmin only a few times, it would try to install the drivers but the drivers would fail to install. The garmin was working a few weeks ago. Below is a list of everything i have already tried:

Rebooting (after everything i try)
- Turning the computer off and leaving it unplugged overnight
- Completely uninstalling all drivers and software associated with the gamin.
- Manually installing drivers
- Uninstalling the unknown device and doing a search for new hardware
- Uninstalling the unknown device and doing a search for legacy hardware (this produces a device not functioning (code 10) error)
- Reverting back to a restore point before the last windows update

Please, any help would be very appreciated. I am decently computer savvy and have always been able to fix any problems that i have. This one has had me spinning my wheels for days.

Device Malfunctioned Error Code - 43 - Usb Device Not Recognized

I purchased a new computer with windows 7.initially my ipod worked fine with this computer. It still charges the ipod but nothing else. In addition it will not work on my old computer.

1. I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled itunes.

2. I reset the device losing all of my music.

3. I have gone to device manager and the ipod shows up as unkown device. I have stopped the device driver and rebooted.

4. I have tried to have attached to my old computer update and i receive the exact same error and usb not recognized message.

5. Other devices work fine on the usb hub, in addition i have tried the other usb hub.

All of the above measures have failed. This all started when i was having problems updating my music to the ipod, and i chose the restore function on the summary page of the itunes software, with the device attached, and recognized. Since then nothing? Initially when the device was attached after the restore option was chosen, i got need to attach to a 2. 0 usbá high speed hub, error message? It is a 2. 0 usb high speed device. I have reviewed other questions in this forum, on apples forums, all with the same results, nothing.

Dvd Device Driver Blocked - Unable To Use Device Code 48

I get a code 48 message. I have an intel d945psn board that has run w2000 on a eide hard drive. I upgraded to windows 7 with a new sata hard drive clean install, but transferred files with pc mover. Now my dvd burner(s) don't work citing the infamous code 48 and saying that the software for this device has been blocked from starting because it is known to have problems with windows.

Aren't cd/dvd device drivers pretty standard, and included with the bios?á How do i deal with that problem. I have tried to update drivers through "driver access", but the problem persists. The device doesn't even show up in windows explorer or my computer, but can be seen in device manager and on the cmos menu. The same is true of my second, identical sata hard drive. It appears that some of my important system drivers have been blocked.

Usb Hub Displaying As Device In Device Manager

Pretty much all my device connected to my usb hub used to show in device manager as separate devices. However, they now only show under the name "kevin o'connor" (the name of my zune). Open the device's properties and going to the hardware tab will show all the device connected via the usb hub.

Therefore, all the devices do in fact work, it's just a little bothersome to me, and the fact that i can't safely remove anything from the hub without having to eject the entire hub. Here's a screen shot that shows what the hub shows as: http://i34. Tinypic.com/34fxmp4.png

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?

Win 7 No Sound - Creative Sound Card

After upgrading to windows 7 i have had no sound. My system says that there is an onboard audio device, sigmatel high definition audio. Which when checking the sound configuration as suggested by another post, it says it has no problems when troubleshooting, and it has sound going to it (as indicated by the sound meter), however no sound. When i switch to the creative sb x-fi sound card, which is the one that i have sound jacks for, there is no sound going to the speakers.

I have tried disabling the integrated sound card (sigma tel) in the bios as well as in the device manger, no luck on any option. I have downloaded the latest drivers for both the sigmatel and the x-fi, with no luck on either occasion.

SoundáBlaster X-fi Sound Card Not Detected

My pc is just over a year old and works fine in all respects with visa 32 bit. The sound card is a soundáblaster x-fi and 5. 1 speakers, 2 gigs of memory and quad core. I shrunk the drive to create a partition etc and installed windows 7 in the new partition ( installed this whilst in vista and not from a boot sequence. Booting from the dvdáhung at the blue screen with no options to continue). Anyway the installation went fine and boots in to windows with no problems. Except the sound card was not detected.

Using the original driver disk does not update anything, i.e. Pointing to it whilst in update driver mode. Installing from the disk fails at the drivers part of installation on 15 or so dll's. After which in the sound section it now says no audio devices are installed. Before the installation there was one item in this secion, a spdif icon. There was no sound though even though this item was present. Btw, onboard sound is de-activated in the bios.

Booting into vista form the option screen and all is working fine. Any ideas would be most welcome. I have one other small problem when i try and run an online game (eq) it throws up an error message saying cannot access memory at 0x00000044 and promptly closes down when the ok box is clicked. Other than this i like windows 7.

No Sound In Ie8 / Sound Quality Issue

For some reason, my computer randomly quits playing sound at all in ie. I can watch youtube silently. No sound on hulu, or any other streaming site. I managed to fix the problem once by uninstalling and reinstalling flash player, but that seems to be unrelated to the actual problem because it's happened again and the solution no longer works. In media player, i get a random crackle every few seconds, just enough to be really frustrating. It's not my speakers: i played the audio through headphones (connected through a separate jack) in order to check. All sound drivers are up-to-date, and the whole system was working fine two days ago. No software changes have been made except for an update to adobe reader.
