Bluetooth Peripheral Device - No Driver Found

I've bought an usb bluetooth yesterday. I plugged it in usb and windows installed all drivers just fine. However, it downloaded some driver from windows update. But my problem is, when i'm trying to add my mobile phone it tries to install many drivers. Windows is able to install all drivers except one. It says bluetooth peripheral device - no driver found. I went to shop and i changed the usb bluetooth and got another one. Same thing with new one. It doesn't find a driver. The bluetooth is useless now, i cannot do anything with it. Also i've tried the bluetooth in my other pc but exact same thing. Currently i'm on windows 7 ultimate 64-bit, but my other pc has windows 7 ultimate 32-bit.

I've tried windows update myself and there was a driver which is 15 kb, i've installed it but no chance. Same thing happening. Driver date is 2008, too old and not for windows 7 i bet. What i have to do now? Please do not say change the bluetooth, because i'm not able to find any other brands. Here is only two brands. And one more thing, i've spent much time yesterday searching my problem in microsoft answers and web and i've tried all ways i've seen, but none of them worked. M i not able to run this device as vista? Something like that? There should be a way please give me some solutions. I really need it.

Bluetooth Peripheral Device Driver Not Found

I upgraded from windows vista to windows 7 home premium. I was able to connect my blackberry storm just fine when i had vista. Now when i try to connect my phone via bluetooth i get a bluetooth peripheral device not found. I have tried everything. I have checked for updates on windows, bluetooth manufacture, and hp and i cannot find any update. I have went to the device manager and right clicked the peripheral driver and tried to update it over the internet and manually. I tried to troubleshoot and run it with a older version of windows, since it worked then, but when it asks me to select which program i would like to run on an older version of windows, i cannot find the drive. Does anyone have any ideas or a way to fix this?

Sound Acting Up When Headphones Plugged In

I just accidentally dropped my laptop while watching a video online. The crash wasn't too bad at all, but now whenever i play audio through headphones (online and off) the background noise is loud and clear but voices are pixually and quiet sounding if you know what i mean. When headphones are not plugged in it all works fine. What is wrong? I just bought my computer a month ago!
 
Edit: i plugged in my external sound card and the headphones work perfect. With that said, do you think the drop somehow messed up the headphone jack? They were plugged in.

Xbox 360 Controller Plugged To Usb Does Not Work

I've windows 7 as o. S, and i'm having some problems with my xbox 360 controllers. When i've bought the play and charge kit for my xbox 360 controller, i heard that it was possible to connect it to te pc in order to play with games for windows live. So, i've started to look for drivers, and i found them in microsoft's hardware official site. I've installed them, then i've restarted my p. C, i plugged in the usb, windows recognized the hardware.

I thought it was alright. But, even if the hardware has been recognized, it doest work. Then i've discovered that "xbox 360 accessories 1. 2" doesn't recognize the hardware, and it is not recognized as a gaming hardware, but as a generic hardware. At that point i've given up! I've surfed in the internet, trying to find something or someone able to help me, but it was useless. Now i hope you'll be able to solve my problem!

P. S: i've already tried to change controller, to change usb port, to change cable, to uninstall and repeat the driver's installation.

Making Synctoy Autoplay When Usb Drive Is Plugged In

I'm running windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I asked this question over on experts-exchange, and they couldn't figure it out, so i'm hoping you all will have some ideas. I have a portable external usb harddrive. I use microsoft synctoy to "echo" files from one folder on my internal harddrive to a folder on the external harddrive. What i'm trying to do is have the synctoy program open when i plug in the external drive.

I've tried a few things. I went to the autoplay settings in the control panel and changed the mixed content setting to "ask me every time". That got the autoplay dialog to come up, but there was no way to select synctoy as the action to run. I also tried creating an autorun. Inf file in the root directory of the external harddrive. In it, i included the full path for synctoy on the computer. I tried this with and without quotation marks.

It seemed to have no effect on anything. Someone then suggested that i install microsoft tweakui, and have it add synctoy to the autoplay list. However, it appeared to me that tweakui isn't compatible with windows 7 (32 and 64 bit). I found compatibility on one of microsoft's windows 7 pages. Just to be clear, the goal is to get synctoy to open. I don't want the synchronization (echo) process to initiate.

No Audio

I built this computer about a year ago, and when i built it, i put windows 7 (64bit) on it. I then downgraded to windows xp (64bit) due to software compatibility. Yesterday, i cracked open my windows 7 (64bit) disk again, and reinstalled. My audio device: "realtek high definition audio" is shown by the upgrade advisor as compatible with windows 7, and my audio worked through this device when i had 7 on this computer the first time. Before installing 7, the audio worked fine in xp, and i just rebooted into a linuxmint livecd, and it worked out of the box.

My motherboard is an asrock p45xe, and i am using the onboard audio. I have installed the realtek drivers as supplied from the asrock site, and this is how my "playback devices" screen looks:http://screencast.com/t/zwnhnwzm - and, as i say, i know it works as i just booted a livecd and had working audio. Any ideas?

No Audio Working At All

I just replaced my windows 7 rc with windows & ultimate on my imac yesterday and after the installation i found that i had no sound. I have tried every possible way i can think of to solve the problem and nothing works. I uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it with the mac driver disc, i have tried updating the driver but windows always tells me that it is the most up to date driver. I had no problems with the sound on the rc version of windows 7 so not sure why i am having one now.

Audio Problems

I have a thinkpad x-61 laptop that came with windows vista. It worked fine for 18 months or so. At one point the audio failed and i couldn't hear anything at all. After some days (and i can't recall what i might’ve done) the problem was fixed, only to fail again a week later, for good.
 
I had a friend (somewhat knowledgeable) help me and after an hour of trying different things he suggested i move from vista to win7 —which i had been planning to do anyway— as the os might’ve had something to do with the problem.
 
When win7 finally came out i installed the professional edition (not as an upgrade) and discovered that the problem remained as before. At this point i figure my laptop must have a hardware problem, and i was puzzled by the fact that neither speakers nor headphones or mike, worked.
 
The last thing i tried was using a "dynex" usb headphone / mike combination. I plugged it in; the os installed the necessary drivers and started working just fine.
 
Now i am lost: can my problem still be hardware or can it be software?
 
My computer shows under device:
Speakers "soundmax integrated digital hd audio" (the original audio device)
Speaker "usb pnp sound device" (the new headphone)
 
The driver for the soundmax audio is dated may of 2009 and doesn't give the option for updating it. Furthermore, when checking "properties", the system reports "this device is working properly".
 
Can anyone suggest a solution to this problem?

Cannot Install Audio Program

I'm trying to run an old audio program bought 10 years ago on my new pc running 64 bit windows, but it's not working. Yeah, when launched i get the following error: "the program can't start because wmvcore2.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem. "

I've tried launching the .exe in "windows xp (service pack 3)" compatibility mode, but it doesn't seem to work. Still get the same error message. Any thoughts?

Audio Stopped Working

My audio went silent. I tried different programs and even fix it. Repair program telling me that one or more components is not working. Well, i feel as genius - since that much i know too. I checked drivers and they are latest and telling me that they work fine. I installed windows 7 months ago and it was working fine. I installed yesterday automatically two critical windows updates and that seem to be culpricht.

However, i cant restore previous since it listing that restore was unsuccessful and therefore no changes. Three days ago i installed update office 2010 pro and there is one glitch as word alwys freezes. However, even after upgrade sound was working. Is there in the world someone who can fix such problem?

Cannot Stream Video Or Audio

I cannot stream any audio or video. Websites load but as soon as i try to play the video, the browser freezes and i have to force it to exit the program. This is happening in both internet explorer and firefox. So far i have tried:

Uninstalling and reinstalling flash
Uninstalling and reinstalling java
Uninstalling and reinstalling quicktime
Uninstalling real player
Looking for updates for all of these programs (flash, java, quicktime)
Running firefox in safe mode to see if the problem went away
Updating all these programs

None of these attempts helped. I am using windows 7, on a new dell studio laptop. This is a recent problem that has been on-and-off for the last few weeks, but today everything stopped working.

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

Audio Device Is Disabled

I've gone back and forth looking through countless websites / forums for a solution to this, but i cant seem to find one. My computer's sound card would used to start acting funky after i left it on for a day or 2, and would require a restart, and after restarting from one of these, the sound stopped working altogether, my sound card is integrated into my motherboard. I also cant watch videos now since my sound stopped working, but video games work fine. As well towards the oddness, my internet connection tab in the bottom right of my screen says i'm not connected to anything, but im actually fine.

Readplease Audio Trouble

I have an acer 7740 running windows 7. I am having trouble running readplease which is a text to speech program. The problem is the sound fades in at the start of each new sentence which is very irritating as with first word in inaudible due to the fade in. It's almost as if when the reader pauses after the period the sound driver turns off, then when the next sentence is read the driver turns back on again. That's my guess. How do i fix this problem? I have used readplease on many computers with windows 98-xp with no problem. I use readplease a great deal so i really need a fix.

Hdmi Audio Problem

I know that there have been other topics posted regarding this, but it is driving me crazy. I have an hp dv4-1430us. It was running vista, and i did the free update to windows 7 64bit. I have been using the hdmi out to watch movies on my hdtv regularly. All of a sudden the hdmi icon is gone from the playback devices. I have checked to see if disabled and disconnected devices were visible and they were. I tried every suggestion on the other post, to no avail. I updated every driver available by model number on the hp website, and intel driver wont load because hp has a modified driver they use and cant load anything but that.

I even tried using the spdif, and that does not work either.

System Audio Is Low

My sound system is messed up big time! My computer uses realtek high definition audio, and my audio is very strange. Earlier one day, it was working just fine. Later one day, the main part of music, video, etc. 's audio was super quiet, and the background noise (like background music in video
And guitar, bass, etc. Parts in music) were louder than they should've been. This is happening everywhere (itunes, online, etc. ), And i think it's just my laptop because no one else is complaining. I can't listen to anything!

Intermittent Audio Issue

Jvc camcorder with hard drive saves video files with a mod extension. In the past with xp or vista you simply change the extension to mpg and they play with no problem. However; with win7 they only work about 50% of the time. You have to restart the files several times to get audio, video is never an issue.

Playing files from the desktop whether mpg or mod work about 30% of time when using them through media player. Using media center to run the files yields significantly better results closer to 80%.
 
If the files are copied to the my video folder they seem to have a slightly higher success rate. Media center is closer to 100%. No matter which format the files are in mod or mpg, they always work in windows live movie maker.

Hdmi - No Option For Audio

I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit and i am having problems with my hdmi port/plug. Before this problem, the hdmi was working perfectly. Once i plug in my hdmi, the video appears on the tv and not the audio. So i go to the sound options in control panel, check to view disabled and disconnected devices, but there is no hdmi audio out option. The tv is set to receive hdmi, i've downloaded all the drivers, and i'm frustrated to my wits end.

Audio Stutter Problem

I bought a new computer in october of 2009, with a win 7 64-bit os, a realtek audio system on the motherboard, and i added a high-end nvidia card for gameplay purposes. I am having the same audio stutter problem that a lot of other people are having. I have installed every realtek update from
2. 33 to 2. 40 and none of them have worked. I've tried installing some drivers from vista, but windows won't let me.

I totally love win7, except for this one small niggling problem. While looking around some of the other windows forums, it seems that the general train of thought is that the issue is something to do with windows 7 itself, and i would agree, having tried several driver-based solutions. A friend of mine was on the beta test for windows 7, and he hasn't had this error.
