Ventrilo / Microphone / Drivers Issue


I recently purchased windows 7 professional (i'm running 32 bit). I like to game online, and i use vent for my voip service. I can hear people fine, and when i press my ptt key, the green microphone lights up and xmit appears, but no one can hear a thing that i say. I checked device manager, so all the drivers are updated, but when i log into vent it says that "no sound driver is available for use". Nothings muted, and it's not an issue with my microphone because i tried it with my friend's. My mic worked with xp before i upgraded, and i have no idea what's wrong now. I don't use a sound card, and it says all my drivers are updated in device manager.

Ventrilo Sound Will Stop Working

My sound will stop working. And not come back unless i restart the program the sound came from. Windows & home premium. This started happening about 10 hours ago. I am a gamer and i relay a lot on my sound. When i join a game or do anything that requires sound ie(youtube, ventrillo, games. ) My sound works for a whole 5 seconds then  cuts off.

Ventrillo will freeze up after i lose sound and all other games if i close and re-open them the same thing happens, it has sound for  seconds then nothing. I already tried updating my drivers and it is all up to date. I am running windows 7 home premium.

Cant Get Microphone To Work

As the title says, my computer does not recognize when i plug a microphone in. I am using a pair of headphones with a microphone attached to it. I have tried 2 different sets so i know the actual mic works.

Under control panel -> hardware and sound -> manage audio devices, recording tab, it says "no audio devices are installed" i have tried using 2 different ports and it still doesn't work.

I am running windows 7 home ultimate. Can anyone shed some light on what i can do?

Edit: i recently installed to windows 7 from vista, could it be that some sort of audio driver didnt get installed or xfered over correctly? How would i figure this out?

Microphone Not Working

I've just installed windows 7 pro on my hp g7000 laptop, however the built in microphone doesn't work! It worked in vista and even in ubuntu (i think), so why not windows 7?

Are there any official / unofficial drivers or updates around to solve this problem? I've noticed that there are quite a lot of people saying that their built in microphones stop working when they upgrade to win 7.

Has microsoft released a fix for this?

Microphone Bug

I have a problem about mic. I use windows 7(32-bit), and have latest sound driver. The problem is, i plug it in at proper "jack" ( the pink one ). I un-mute it and put the volume on max. I can hear on my headset when im poking the mic but when i try to record, or to speak with someone over skype / msn, the green line is not rising up, and people are complaining to me that they can't hear me. I've been searching forums about this. I am sure that its not cause of driver, or non-working mic. Some even wrote that it could be a bug at windows 7, or driver http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/gettingreadyforwindows7/thread/562f2350-44d2-4495-981d-c416d0337bd7

I have one desktop mic, and headset mic, same problem at both. Oh, and by the way, i never had this kind of problem on windows xp.

Logitech Microphone Not Working

I have a logitech internet headset which i haven't used in a while using realtek hd audio drivers. I wanted to use skype but my microphone wasn't picking up. Now i've tried it both on my laptop and another pc using winxp so its not the headset.

1) it is connected to the right jack (pink)
2) i used windows sound recorder and nothing was recorded when speaking into it.
3) microphone is enabled in sound recording devices, but the bars to the right of the  microphone icon never goes higher than one green bar.

4) the microphone is not muted, i checked in realtek audio manager and windows sound mixer, also have volume for mic turned up all the day and it is set to 30 db.
 
5) i tried updating audio drivers, nothing new was found, uninstalled and used ms drivers and it still didn't work, then reinstalled the original drivers and did not work.

The speakers are also working fine and have worked fine. Form searching around i have noticed this seems to be a common problem that hasn't been resolved anywhere, is there anything i can do to get mic working?

Microphone Sound Not Detected

Microphone issues i recently got a hp computer with windows 7 installed on it, i got the updates, installed skype and when i went into a call, the other person couldn't hear my microphone, i know these things: it's not a problem with skype. It's not my mic, as it worked on the previous computer. Yes, the mic is unmuted, and plugged into the correct jack i've looked at all of the troubleshooting guides, and the only result i have received from any of them is a loud screeching sound from my mic when i click "listen" in the control panel>sound>recording>microphone area.

I've downloaded and installed any updates that the trouble shooting guide suggests i do. Yet still nothing. All i'm getting is the same screeching noise that i wasn't getting before, i checked all the mic settings and it's enabled, unmuted, and the computer says it's getting the signal from the mic, i even did a troubleshooting check and it said it found no problems. And again, i know for a fact it's not the mic itself because it was working on the previous computer, and while i was changing computers no damage was done to the mic.

Microphone Not Picking Up Any Sound

I recently got a new dell studio 17 laptop with windows 7. I like to game alot so i have a headset with a microphone. My computer does not show the microphone picking up my voice, or any sound at all. It is plugged into the correct jack, i have turned the levels up and down and the db as well. I've made sure it's not muted, and it still doesn't pick up any noise. I've also made it the default device and default communications device and still nothing. Even tried, disabling the built in microphone on my computer to see if that was interfering. Still doesn't pick up any sound. .

Sound Card Crashing On Microphone Use

So basically, i can listen to music on itunes and use sound in any program around, until i began to use my microphone. I can use chat on aim and skype, but the second i start a voice chat with someone, my sound crashes until i restart my computer. I've run both self-help tools from the website, and i can't provide you with what sound card i'm using because 1. ) I forgot where to search. 2. ) When i finally did find it a few times recently, it said no sound card could be found. I know that to be untrue, but how do i go about fixing it?

Usb Microphone Stopped Working

I just recently purchased a blue eyeball 2. 0 webcam/microphone. Once connected i was testing it out on chatroulette.com and asked people if they could hear me. All good so far. Then i used windows sound recorder, sounded great, crisp and clear.

As i continued to check setting and adjust volumes, i noticed the voice recognition/text-to-speech program built into windows. That intrigued me so i started the "train your computer to better understand you" did a couple of those and wanted to start the voice recognition. Windows asked if i wanted to do the tutorial, so i figured that would be a good idea. As i went through the tutorial it asked me to say "my weekend was good", to make the program not understand, it worked so far.

But next it asked me to say "show speech options", nothing happened, i said it again and again, nothing. Then i realized that little bar in voice recognition wasn't moving. So i just closed the tutorial, and then went back to windows voice recorder nothing. Out of nowhere it stopped capturing any voice or sound through the mic.

I tried everything i could think, and even what other threads said. I made sure it was defaulted, i made sure it wasn't muted, i disabled and enabled, i uninstalled drivers and reinstalled drivers. I've tried switching usb ports. I've tried it all. Also there's no sound card drivers i could get, since it is through usb. Also, just for giggles i installed the latest updates for the sound card, that of course didn't do anything. The webcam/mic is plug-n-play, and it was working, so i know it didn't break in 10 minutes. If anyone could help me out, that would be great. I'm a sad panda.

Windows 7 64-bit
Custom built computer

Re-enabling Microphone - Show Disconnected Devices

If you don't know already know. In the sound module in windows 7 there is a feature in properties to disconnect the device using the device usage drop-down menu in the general tab. I have been scouring the internet for days to try and find a solution for re-enableing my microphone. I finally found the solution purely by accident when i right clicked in the empty space where my mic was once displayed. I clicked on the option to "show disconnected devices" whola 2 devices popped up. All i had to do was go back to properties and re-connect them.

Question is:
Why have microsoft set this option to hide them by default?

Why have this feature in the first place?

Marshall Mxl Usb Microphone Problem

I purchased an mxl 990 usb mic for desktop recording. The package encouraged the user to download software based pre-amp and recording applications. Here are the links to the downloads. Soft pre-amp: http://www.Mxlmics.com/products/900_series/990_usb/990_usb.html recorder software: http://www.Mxlmics.com/products/usb/software.html 

I only installed these apps because windows 7 failed to install a driver for the mic;so i thought the manufacturer's apps would solve the driver problem. Instead, not only did the installation attempt crash my system, but windows now crashes everytime i connect the mic to the usb port. I've uninstalled both apps and the crash still occurs on connection.

Dell Inspiron 1521 Microphone Not Working

I upgraded to windows 7 a few months ago and have tried everything i can think of to get my microphone working but to no avail. It is an internal array, so i don't need to plug into the jack. I have installed the sigmatel audio drivers. The device shows up as enabled and set as my default device. The microphone is not muted, but when i go to a recording program, it reads that the microphone is not picking up any sound at all. The windows troubleshooter doesn't know what to do either, does anybody have a fix?

Usb Microphone Input Is Overpowered By Input Device

I connected a behringer "u-phono uf0202" audio interface usb device on a toshiba qosmio x505 computer. The device takes analog signals from tape recorders and inputs digital signals to the usb port. The device is automatically identified and drivers installed - no software from the manufacturer, just microsoft drivers.microsoft drivers treat it like a usb microphone and the behringer audio interface way overpowers the input. The level setting has to be set at 2 or 3 to keep the level indicators from maxing out. Do i need to force a different driver for this device that has more output than a microphone? If so how do you get the driver installed on the right usb port every time you plug in the device?

Updating Drivers

I ran vista 64 on this custom pc for 2 years and upgraded to win 7. I had it running well for about a month until i started getting lots of updates for drivers, like atapi, 1394, atk 0110 etc. Installing these "updates" over time began to give me lock ups and bsods. I sort of just took windows word for it and installed these drivers, knowing full well that windows has tried to give me the wrong drivers in the past (gpu, monitor, sound card to name a few).

Im on my 6th install of win 7 so ive decided to update all drivers manually in the future. Im pretty familiar with updating drivers for devices like the gpu, mobo (nforce), monitor, mouse, sound card etc but im unsure about updating several other devices. These devices have windows generic drivers dating back to 2006 and include :

Acpi x64
Wdc scsi disk device
Ide ata/atapi controllers (ata 0, 1, pci ide generic)
1394 bus controller
Usb's

It should be noted that ive been sent windows updates for atapi, atk 0110, ehci (usb updates), 1394
My board is an asus striker ii extreme. From their website i can get the drivers for :jmicron(raid controller), nforce (though its outdated), onboard audio and atk 0110 and install them on top of the generic drivers. But that leaves me with quite a few other drivers missing. Atapi, ehci, 1394. Where would i get these?

Blocked Drivers

I got a new hp 610 laptop with windows 7 home basic operating system. On installing the "total protection" it gave me an error saying that a driver. Had been blocked by the operating system and disabled. It is not giving me an indication as to which driver it is.

It must be something to do with the firewall because i cannot get it to switch on. I have total protection running on my pc and previously on my other laptop but they were running on xp pro.
Have you had something like this before?

Re Download Drivers

When i download a driver and try to expand/install it and it says down load error - down load again, which i download again but because the driver was downloaded before it does not actually download again, but shows in a split second that the driver has downloaded as (1). When i click the new downloaded driver it shows the same download error message. This is because the download begins from where the download stopped and not from the starting again, showing the same file from the hard disk.
Please tell me how to delete the cache file and re-download a fresh driver.

Hp Drivers Vs Win 7

My employer bought a new dell laptop with windows 7. We have an hp laserjet 3030 plc6 on a machine running xp pro, and, an hp laserjet 4050 plc6 on another machine running xp pro. I connected the windows 7 machine via local network to the xp pro machines. I installed and can use the 4050 printer with no problems. However, i tried to install the 3030 on to the new laptop, and it tells me that no suitable driver was found. I downloaded both plc5 and plc6 universal drivers from hp, for windows 7. Still will not work.

Prior to that, i tried connecting the 3030 directly to the laptop via usb, and it works fine!
Why can't the laptop find the driver, which was installed within windows 7 from the beginning, when i am using it as a shared device on another machine?

Radeon X1300 Drivers

I have downloaded the drivers for vista/windows 7 catalyst 9. 3 and they don't install when i run the installer. The log says it failed. I am unable to rate the system and i think it because of the video card/drivers. The drivers are the windows wmd drivers that 7 installed.

Ati Drivers Conflict

I upgraded from xp x32 to windows 7 x64. I performed a clean install of xp and immediately installed win7. After the first reboot in the setup the image on my monitor became garbled just after windows loaded. First, i restarted into safe mode but got a message that the installation was not complete and could only be completed in normal mode. I found that after windows loaded i could type my user name and press enter repeatedly to complete the installation although i still couldn't see what was happening.

After the installation completed i went into safe mode which gave me a clear picture. If i disabled the display adapter in safe mode i could boot into normal mode with a clear picture, but windows 7 would then install drivers which caused the image to become corrupted upon reboot. During one boot into normal mode the device manager gave me a code 19 for my video card:"windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged.

I've tried 2 clean installs, 3 driver versions, and a different monitor. The other monitor just gives a black screen where my main monitor gives a garbled image. I've used driver sweeper and the control panel to uninstall the video drivers, and i've installed new drivers from downloaded .exe's and by letting windows find them. This computer was working perfectly fine one day ago with windows 7 rc x64.

Keyboard Drivers Becoming Disabled

Keyboard *drivers* becoming 'disabled' (1st usb, then ps/2); show "!" In hw-lst, but win-diags find nothing wrong. This is a most peculiar problem. First my usb kbd driver went dead. At first i didn't notice it, as i was using the mouse, primarily, for input, but remember a hw-rejected sound from windows earlier upon logging in.

My keyboard wouldn't do anything. No led toggles - etc, but on another machine, fine, and on same machine 'fine' - until windows comes up, then kbd goes dead (once bios drivers are no longer driving kbd, likely).

Under keyboards, the hid keyboard driver showed a small yellow triangle with an ! In it.

After trying  reinstalling the driver (its the stock ms driver), upgrading it (no upgrades), repair ("nothing can be found wrong, maybe the driver is corrupt", but file kbd_hid.sys, checks out w/valid ms sig), i decide to hook up a ps/2 keyboard. It worked for all of maybe 20 seconds. Then a low hw reject message as win7 disconnected my ps/2 kbd! Unbelievable! Now both my hid kbd driver and the 'standard ps/2 keyboard driver show up with the yellow triangle with a "!" In it. But i can't figure out what's doing wrong with the.

I also tried system restore to day before any of this happened - no go. I figured going back further would be a waste, since the start of the problem was rather clearly defined.

I *thought* i had caused it when i tried to enter a sw policy restriction to forbid 'wisptis.exe' from executing - (the onscreen digital ink input dealy) - for two reasons - it kept getting in the way and i couldn't figure out how to get it to turn off (i wanted to use my tablet's native drivers, but wisptis was interfering and making the tablet good for nothing but digital ink (handwriting recognition as keyboard input)).

The final straw came when i was looking through my logs and found the security log (~20mb log) mostly full with security failures from wisptis.exe (i turned on monitoring of security failures, only, thinking that failures, should be rare in properly acting sw, and this software was clearly violating win7's own security policy!).

It was after i added the policy that the usb keyboard went dead.

But that policy went away from the first 'backstep' (system restore point) - but the keyboard didn't come back. After that it was downhill for the ps/2 driver. So, to be clear, the policy is not in the security panel - it was back to pre-init state (no sw policies in effect) after the 1st system restore. So that 'had' to be coincidence. But it felt oddly coincidental, that the only 'keyboad' type inputs left to use on the system were the on-screen keyboard and the digital-ink keyboard. (Mouse paths/drivers are unaffected).

Using Vista Drivers With Win 7

I installed windows 7 rc and the drivers that were on the machine worked fine. However, i am hosting a windows 7 launch party and received a signature copy of windows 7 ultimate. When i tried to install the promo os i had to do a clean install which wiped out the drivers. I contacted the manufacturer (hp) who are apparently not going to provide updated drivers for my machine (which is only 2 years old) for windows 7. When i contacted their support people i was told to use the drivers for vista, but when i try to install the drivers i am told that my os is not vista and the install terminates. So, is there any way for me to fool the software into thinking i am actually running vista?

Win 7 Sata Drivers

During the os install it ask for sata drivers. I insert the mobo cd and locate the drivers are for 32 bit os per instructions but when i try to install them nothing happens. I click on show compatible drivers and nothing is listed in the drop down list. I also tried putting the drivers on a flash drive and the same thing happens. Nothing. Also for some reason win 7 doesn't like sata cd/dvd . Have to take disc in and out 4-5 times for it to even read it and then it keeps hanging. What's up

Can you please give me the correct win 7 sata drivers. I'm getting frustrated.

Canon Hg20 Drivers

I recently purchased a canon hg20 hi-def camcorder. It uses a hard drive to store video - as well as a flash memory card. I have 2 computers, both almost identical in hardware and both running windows 7 home premium 64-bit. When i plug the camcorder via the usb connection to one computer it's found ok and drivers are loaded successfully. It's using "disk.sys", "partmgr.sys", and "sahdad64.sys".

However, when i plug it in to my other computer it searches and searches and searches and searches and finally comes back and says it couldn't find drivers and that it failed. When i look at it in device manager the driver is "usbstor.sys". I've tried removing the driver and reinstalling but it keeps picking the same one. I've tried updating the driver and the system tells me it's already the most current and refuses to replace it.

The computer that installed correctly works fine with the camera - i can access the videos on the camcorder hard drive and copy them to my computer. The other computer, however, refuses to install the camcorder correctly and i therefore can't access the camcorder from that computer.

Any ideas on how i can get my other computer to install this camcorder drivers correctly? I thought windows 7 was supposed to handle drivers better than other versions. I'm really surprised i'm getting different results on different computers that are almost identical.
