No Sound On Laptop


I just installed windows 7 upgrade on my hp pavilion dv7-142nr entertainment notebook pc and now i can only hear sound if i have my headphones plugged in. The red mute button on the top of computer( next to where i†can just touch the sound bar and it turns it up and down) is stuck on however i have managed to get it unmuted in the window task bar. When i go to sound the only thing it says is not plugged in is ati hdmi output (ati high definition audio device) says not plugged in. It says speakers and dual headphones is default device.

Laptop Not Controlling Default Sound

Recently upgraded to windows 7 and now i cannot seem to control the volume of my default sound device when i have a usb headset connected. Previously i could use the volume controls on my laptop keyboard to control the speaker volume on the laptop even with a usb headset connected. Now whenever i have the headset plugged in the volume controls only change the volume of that and not the default speakers? Is there anyway to change this as i've tried everything i can think of and do not understand why the buttons aren't controlling my default sound output!

No Sound Coming From Dell Xps Laptop

My sound has suddenly stopped working. I am running win 7 64bit. I have run the audio playback troubleshooter, to no avail. I have also tried to see if the audio device was hidden and not set as default but no. I don't seem to get any errors from windows but spotify says that there is an error with my soundcard. Also when i try to configure the sound device and i click on the test button a message comes up saying it failed to play test tone. These are the only two times where the software has picked up on there being no sound but the message that was returned was non descipt as to the problem. Has anyone got any ideas?

Compaq Laptop Sound Quality Quiet And Low

Sound quality on my compaq laptop has died. Not sure why this has happened but it's annoying (especially since my ipod just drowned too. ) The sound quality on my computer has died. Sound still plays through the speakers and headphones, but it's much quieter and sounds really tinny, as though the equalizer has dropped all settings to -12db. In fact that's what i thought must have happened, but i've been troubleshooting and screwing around with settings, and it's still the same.

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.

Sound†Blaster 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 sound†blaster 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 dvd†hung 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.

Sound Drivers Recognised But No Sound

The install is activated and running perfectly except for there being no sound. The drivers say they are installed, and when there should be sound, i can see the volume activity in the volume slider, but nothing is coming out of the speakers or headphone socket. I have soundmax integrated audio driver on my toshiba qosmio laptop. Everything works fine in xp. I hope someone can shed some light as it's very very frustrating.

Recorded Tv No Sound But Live Tv Sound

Whenever i record tv it has about a 90% chance of not recording sound. If i can catch it within the first few minutes of recording i would put it to live tv (where there is sound) and hit record, and then it would record with sound.

I have googled looking for the solution to this, and have tried a few things but nothing is working.
I have just one tuner.
I never had any problems with vista or xp just windows 7!

I think it may have something to do with a show that is recording when the computer comes from sleep mode, say if the computer is being used or is not in sleep mode, it will record the sound, maybe if i had 2 shows recording in succession, the second show would record while the first one wouldn't have sound?

No Sound When Using Sound Blaster Live

I have no issues when using sound blaster live 5. 1 for windows 2000 and windows xp. However, i upgraded windows xp to windows 7, the program couldn't recognize the sound blaster card. Regardless how many times i have downloaded the driver from internet, cd-rom or checking the sound card, there is still no result. I even bought the driver wizard program but it couldn't recognize the sound card either. I hope anyone could give me some suggestions of how to fix this problem.

Laptop Boots Up On Its Own

I've recently bought a dell inspiron laptop with windows 7. I noticed that the battery seemed to be discharging over night so i checked event viewer and it seems that the laptop is booting itself up for between 10 and 20 minutes most (but not all) nights. I confirmed this one night by leaving it next to my bed!†It came on at about 1215 am. I have checked all the scheduled tasks and none are set to "wake the computer to run this task". I have mcafee security centre running so i don't think i have a virus or a trojan or anything like that. Any idea what is causing this and how i can stop it, short of removing the battery!

Laptop Was Stolen

1 month old laptop with windows 7 was stolen, it was a gateway laptop. I have filed a police report and proof of purchase with gateway. However, i do not know my windows 7 key of the top of my head because it was on the bottom of the laptop, the original gateway box does not have this information either and i contacted gateway and they said they cannot give me the key because "dispatching of windows 7 os is done by mentor media. I recommend you contact microsoft".

The reason im asking is, i am going to build a new computer and i thought instead of paying for windows 7 again why not use the copy i already payed for when i bought the laptop? Is this possible? I put my gateway "recovery dvd's" in my current desktop and i got to the screen where it asks language and the notice where it says "if you press continue everything will be restored to original factory settings", if i put those recovery dvd's in the computer i build will they install windows 7 on my new computer? Is there somehow a way to transfer over the key to the new machine?

In addition i have a broken dell laptop out of warranty, too expensive to fix, which has a windows vista key on the bottom, can i make use of that somehow?

Laptop Will Not Power Up

Have been given a toshiba protege r400 mod no:ppr40a-01000l to look at for a friend who is very ill and the machine just will not switch on. Have tested the adaptor and battery voltage and there is plenty. Now i don't have much experience with laptops as such and so cannot rule the psu as the culprit. When plugged in the blue power light is on and the small yellow battery indicator flickers at random speeds - but quite fast. Now i have the maintenance manual for it and i can probably get the lcd mask off to look at the power witch itself. But before i do i would like some opinions on the most likely cause and would prefer to avoid this if at all possible.

Laptop Keyboard Not Working

I†had the rc version of windows working fine on my asus aspire 5670 laptop for several months. Then about 2 weeks age, i installed a couple of windows updates and the laptop keyboard stopped working. No red bangs in deice manager, updating driver had no effect. Keyboard works fine in bios as well as in safe mode. Restore points had no effect. Flashed the bios, still nothing. Since windows 7 was released last week, i snagged a copy and did a clean install (formatting the system drive in advance) assuming that this would fix the problem - it did not! I had to use the on screen keyboard to enter† the product key ;).

Desktop Pc Thinks It Is A Laptop

I built two identical desktop pcs and with windows 7 home premium. Both are plugged into the same ups and i have not installed the ups software in either one. One of the two keeps shutting down and when i turn it back on i get a message that it shutdown because the battery was low. Also this one has a battery indicator in the tray at the bottom of the screen. The other machine does not have the shutdown issue or the battery symbol in the tray. I have tried various settings in the power management but cannot convince this thing it is a desktop and has no battery.

Laptop Randomly Hibernates

i'm new to this site and have been experiencing my laptop hibernating randomly the past few days while i am using it. I could be working on anything in my computer, like browsing the web, checking email, etc. , And bam! Hibernates. I know it's not a virus because i have mcafee and windows defender both active and they scan my laptop bi-weekly.

I've asked a few friends at school, and they've given a few possible suggestions; the memory that is being used, or the time i'm using it, (after startup), but i've came to the assumption that it could be both. By both, i mean that once the processor passes a certain memory usage, and a certain time after then, is where the problem could jump from. Since i've thought of that solution, i've tried using less programs together, (e.g. Only the browser or only windows live mail), and as i've been using this solution, it has rarely hibernated w/o notice.

Remove User From Laptop

How do i remove a user from my laptop? Changing user folder names and author names i was one of six individuals that received laptops as a gift from my church. My problem is that while my computer shows my name as owner, it shows another one of the other individuals as user. For example, userkarensara lee and if my name is karen, why is the other person's name showing on my computer. It will also show the other person's name as the author on my documents, or last modified by and then the other person's name. How do i fix this?

Laptop Cannot Find Printer On Desktop

I can't get my printer set up on my network. Laptop is running windows vista, desktop is running windows 7. Everything was fine until my desktop motherboard failed. I had to get a new mb and installed windows 7. Now laptop can't see printer. My laptop running windows vista can't see the printer associated with my desktop running windows 7.

Are they not compatible with each other? It keeps asking for some sort of password. I have none that i remember. The printer worked fine before the installation of a new motherboard and windows 7. Now i can only print from my desktop.
