Problem with Audio and USB ports

Q: Problem with Audio and USB ports

On my HP Windows XP desktop, audio and the USB ports stop working while the rest of the PC is working fine. The only way to recover is by rebooting the system. After reboot the audio and the ports work fine for a couple of days and the problem repeats. I have tried downloading the latest RealTek audio drivers and cleaning the Registry etc. Nothing has helped.

Any suggestions?

I have a problem with my front usb ports/audio ports, a couple days ago I replaced my radiator and unplugged the cord for the front usb ports but it went back in fine and ever since then I would have my headphones plugged in but whenever I took out something from the usb port the headphone/audio stopped working, could there be something wrong with the way I plugged it back in?

Hello all First off I would like to say thanks in advance Ok here s my problem Last July I bought a Dell Inspiron E It worked fine for a few months but then I started having troubles with my speakers they would just stop working for no reason I would turn of the power on the speakers and unplug them from my laptop I would wait a few problem (audio ports). Motherboard seconds plug them in and they would work again Then I decided to buy a headset so I could use SKYPE Once again problems SKYPE wouldn t recognize the headset or microphone I tried listening to music with Motherboard problem (audio ports). the headphones and nothing I made sure to try them out on my friend s Mac and they worked perfectly I contacted Dell and after a lot of back and forth they told me that I had a defective audio port on my motherboard They also said I needed to replace the entire thing The problem is that I left the USA I m living in South Korea in September so I would have to pay to have it shipped to the USA not to mention it would take much longer My question is this If it is a problem with a the audio port is it possible to repair it If so I ll try to find a shop here in Busan What really annoys me is that today I plugged in the headset and it worked find I was able to talk to my buddy in Madrid no problem When I hung up I disconnected the headset and connected my speakers and NOTHING No sound Well thanks in advance for any help suggestions Oh yeah I m running Windows XP and the motherboard is a Calistoga GM at least that is what the Dell sales rep told me nbsp

A:Motherboard problem (audio ports).


Have you ever tried using a USB interface headset?

This way you dont even have to plug it into your audio output jacks on your motherboard. I use the audio output jacks for my speakers on my motherboard, but I use a USB headset for when I play games and want to talk to others online. This might be a simple solution for you because it will totally bypass the need to use the bad ports and it will work fine for what you want to do. They also make usb speakers with their own built-in soundcards, so you wouldnt need the jacks for that either.

I have Realtek HD Audio

On Realtek Audio, there are visual representation of the ports on my computer.

the last driver version of realtek allowed you to reassign the funcitons of these ports to whatever you want. For example, I could change a speaker port to a microphone port if I wanted.

I can't seem to do it in this version, the option doesn't present itself. does anyone know how you can do that, or is there another way? I'd like to have two speaker ports instead of just one. i dont have front ports.

A:Usb to Audio Ports

I have a Senneheiser dongle that came with my headset. It's basically a soundcard in a small package.
the 5.1 on the dongle you posted is simulated using stereo.

you would normally use something like that if you have a headset with 3.5mm jacks and don't have ports on the front of your PC or on your speakers.
Keeps you from having to go behind the PC and unplug your speakers and plug in the headset.
Or if the onboard sound or soundcard failed, you'd use this as your soundcard.

Hi, my computer has two green ports for sound. The one on the back will only make sound come out of the right speaker, so I've plugged it in the front one which is also seemingly a bit weird cause the sound is sometimes static-y and broken. You have to like twist and push on the wire to get it just right and a lot of the time things bump it and it breaks again.

Does anyone know how to fix either of these? Preferably the back port, thanks.

I want to buy this motherboard but I am unsure if it will hook up to my case with front audio and front USB ports. Is there a way to tell?

This is my case:

A:Front Audio and USB Ports

most likely it will if the mobo is recent. but the best thing would be to find the manual for the mobo online aand check there.
my mobo is 2 yrs old and it came with extra usb connectors, so im guessing that now it would be standard to have them on all the recent ones.

I just got a new computer built for me for next to nothing, so I can't really complain ,but I'm not much of a tech so I can't figure this bit out on my own...

The problem is that the standard line out port for a simple 2 channel speaker setup (the green guy) is broken. The guy who built it for me says that it's easily reassigned to a different port in the Realtek AC97 software that's on the box, but I can't do it, and I can't find any help at the Realtek site. It shouldn't have anything to change on the motherboard, but does anyone have more experience with the AC97 software who could point me in the right direction?

I have been avoiding this issue for awhile. I want to connect the wires into my motherboard that would make my front audio ports work. There is a head phones port and a microphone port. My motherboard is ABIT IS-7. The legend of how to connect the wires are different from the case so I don't know how to.

Here are the wires that came with the case. They are labeled:
L In
L Out
Mic In

R In
R Out
Mic In

I am guessing that the L In is the headphones port because it is on the left side of the motherboard, so the right side would be the microphone.

I am completely lost. I hope someone can help. I'll post an image of the legend that is in the manual of ABIT IS-7.

Can someone tell me which one goes with which? I would really be helpful.

I cannot find out how to hook the front microphone input to a Sound Blaster X-fi extreme music sound card. The case is a Xion series gaming case from Xion USA. Creative will not help me out. Instead they offer the platinum edition for 80 dollars more. The only difference is the "convenient I/O drive" that fits in the case.

According to one reviewer, there is no on-board connector for the case audio cables:

If you are handy with a soldering iron, you might be able to run a home made adapter cable out of the back of the case and plug it into the rear panel mic jack.

I built my computer November 1st 2007. Ever since then I haven't been able to get the front mic or audio ports to work. My front USB ports work fine though. I just recently started wanting to use them, so I didn't worry much about it until now.

I reinstalled all my audio drivers and chipset drivers, specifically the vista 64-bit ones (thats my OS) included on the motherboard disc. My rear audio works fine. Also, I'm 100% positive that the front audio cable is plugged into the motherboard correctly.

Whenever I plug something into the mic or audio port, it goes in fine, but my computer doesn't detect it.

I've been having this issue with Windows for about a week now which NONE of the back panel/front panel connectors (speakers, microphone) are being recognized by Realtek audio manager. The only audio input/outputs that are showing are the optical.
Troubling shooting steps I've tried (none worked):

COMPLETELY uninstall all Realtek drivers/reinstallTried using windows driversReinstall Windows 10Upgraded chipset driversfc /scannow
I called EVGA and asked for RMA but then I booted into a Ubuntu OS and all the ports work FINE. It must be a problem with windows 10.
Can you think of any other troubling shooting step I can try to fix this annoying issue? Thanks!

Relevancy 46.87%

I've got a slight problem.

In the front panel i've got 2 ports, 1 for audio and 1 for microphone. However, only the audio port is working (detecting that i've put in the plug for headphones, for i.e), but it cannot detect my microphone (the microphone plug is of course already plugged in).

Then in the back panel i've got 2 more ports, 1 for audio and 1 for microphone. But the back panel is reversed, as i can only seem to detect my microphone there, but not the audio.

So i'm left chosing between microphone or audio.

What might be the problem?
And how may i fix it?

A:Changing default ports for audio/microphone

Check the audio configuration in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Sound panel. On the Playback panel, your "Speakers" should be set as the default Playback device. On the Recording Tab, depending on your sound card, you may have two microphones, one for the front and one for the rear. You may also have "System Mixer" as an option too. Selecting the System Mixer (SoundBlaster calls it "what you hear") may also work.

If this doesn't fix the problems, it could be the drivers (and you need Win7 or at a minimum for some devices Vista drivers) need reinstalling or simply uninstalling your sound in the Device Manager and then restarting the PC will take care of it.

To recycle the sound device, Hold the Windows key down and press the Pause/Break Key. In the panel that comes up, the Device Manager can be accessed from the list in the upper left of the panel. In the Device Manger, RIGHT click on the entry for your sound device (to highlight it) and then LEFT click on "uninstall" (DO NOT uninstall the driver). Restart the PC and when Windows starts it should detect and reinstall the sound.

My question is the following: Can you, on just one audio card, assign the sound from two different applications to two different audio ports e.g. movie sound goes through one port to the TV while the sound from a game or music goes through another to a head-set. I mean, it is possible to divide different sounds in a movie to the different chanels in a 5.1 sound system so wouldn´t it be possible to do the same with applications?

Is there any programs that would allow this or do you need a second video card?

Thanks in advance!


A:Can you assign sound from different aplications to different audio ports?

mmmmmmmm NO BUT YOU CAN have 1 device as the windows sound device such as my audigy soundcard and I have my digidesign MBOX in high end sound programs that use ASIO drivers so normally windows don't even see its there really till I'm in sonar or fruity loops......

NOW with that said if I could find a media player that allowed me to use those ASIO drivers as the output guess I COULD do just what you suggested.
I have honestly WANTED this ability before such as havin people in the vocal booth listening to a mix of a song so they can write lyrics and me being able to have a seperate audio feed so I could be composing music in fruity loops......... I am sure there is a way somehow

I have had this computer for over a year, when I initially got it I noticed the two audio ports on the front of the tower were not working. I double checked to see if it was plugged in on the mother board in the right spot, it was. I decided to just leave it before anything else broke, but after a year I love my computer less and am willing to take the risk .

When I plug it into speakers into the front audio jacks (There are two) Realtek HD Audio does not give the message "A Jack Has Been Plugged In". The back ports work fine for the record.

A:Solved: Front Panel Audio Ports Not Working

Well I got it working after much forum searching!

"Had same problem but problem isn't the chip.
In Realtec Audio Manager, if you hover over the pink and green icons for the front panel you'll probably see they're both set up for speakers or headphones.
To solve you first need to unplug the microphone.
Then click on the 'folder' icon, which is just to the right of where it says 'ANALOG'.
Then make sure you enable fron't panel jack detection and enable the auto pop-up dialog.
Then plug the mic in, and when the pop-up asks tell it that you've plugged in the Mic.
Suggest you disable the front panel detection and the auto pop-up afterwards as it's a right pain.
You can get a similar end result if you use the 'Connector Retasking' facility - just right click on the pink or green socket icon.
Hope this helps someone.

A:audio problem when earphone/head phone is connected to 3.5mm audio jack

Test by switching between the Realtek audio driver and the Windows native audio driver.
1. Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" and right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked.7. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio" (the native driver).8. Click "Next".9. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 10. Restart the laptop if prompted. If not prompted, then no need to restart.[To get back to the Realtek driver, do it again but reverse the names in steps 2 and 7.]
If it still does not work correctly when the native driver is installed, then the hardware in the headphone jack has failed.
But if the same problem is there with the native driver then you should install a different version of the Realtek driver. I might be able to direct you to one but would need to know which operating system you are using.

Hey all so I have forwarded some ports on my router with Airport Utility NAT port forwarding but using cmd netstat -n the ports I forwarded aren't listed and using online port checkers confirms they are closed I added exceptions to my firewall even though it is off and windows defender is off and Avast's shields are all off I honestly have no idea how to open the ports up and haven't found a way to do this using Windows not pro Anybody have any ideas It seems like Windows is blocking these ports from opening for some reason There doesn't seem to be an override function in cmd to open them either In case forwarded disabled? router Ports firewalls closed; ports, you're wondering why I need the ports open I'm trying to resolve a quot request timeout quot error when pinging somebody on Hamachi - so I'm trying to open the main ports Hamachi uses I just want to play Terraria man Any Ports closed; router forwarded ports, firewalls disabled? help would be greatly appreciated

A:Ports closed; router forwarded ports, firewalls disabled?

Temporarily add your PC IP into the DMZ and try again , see if the internal/external tests then notice the ports open , this will test if it's a router or PC issue....

Don't forget to take it out of the DMZ after testing...

Hey guys. Im not sure if this is in the rite place, so admins move it if u like.

Theres something wrong with all my usb ports. For some reason if i shut the computer down plug in either the usb cable from my printer or my digi camera, and started up the comp, it will go to the windows screen, but rite after that it says "windows protection error, please restart your comp". and if i take the usb cable out and restart the comp, everything is fine and it goes rite to my desktop. If i was to plug the usb cable in while the comp was on, it would come to a blue screen and say something. Not sure was it says.

The reason why i gotta get this fixed, is because i know im gettn a new digi camera for christmas, and now i cant use it...Can anyone help me out???

But when I do telnet ipaddress 8192 (where ipaddress is the ip address of the problem pc) from the server I'm getting the folloqwing error message: Could not open connection to the host, on port 8192, connect failed.
It's the same result for the other ports.
What could be wrong?


A:Ports problem

Jvuz, Telnet is a server/client program that normally uses port 23 for communication and usually talks to an ip address. I'm trying to understand why you want to telnet to the 819x ports you mentioned asyou do not normally need to open the ports manually. Sophos installer program usually installs without any problems and opens the required ports as part of the install.If this is not happening, we need to have more info on how you are configured to go onto the internet..router type etc.

A:Problem with USB Ports

JP first up mate what model Lenovo is it - difficult to find drivers without knowing it as I think you need the drivers updating for the USB and the network adaptor.

I suspect you have updated them using th Windows feature which to be honest I wish they would get rid of because I get all drivers from the manufacturers of the equipment / device - so much more reliable.

The issue with speed I cannot figure out what it has to do with the USB ports to be honest.

One thing you can do is to power off the modem and leave for about a minute and then power on again. This works for me when my modem (very occasionally) decides to go walkabout.
I would also run these when you get a chance to

ADW download frombleeping computer delete any rubbish found with the malware scans

Also do you have any cleaning programs on that machine such as CCLeaner which does a good job of decluttering the machine of temp files cookies etc? < download from piriform if you want to keep cookies associated with passworded sites you use you need to save them but if you are not sure of how to do that - post back and I can let you know how to do that.

I purchased this laptop around 2 months ago:

HP 15-g092sa 15.6" Laptop - Black Deals | PC World

The USB port on the left hand side, which I believe is the USB 3.0 port is functioning perfectly, but the two, I believe USB 2.0, ports on the right hand side are not working at all. If I plug anything in to them there is no response whatsoever.

I don't think that it is a hardware problem, as I downloaded a piece of software which displays the two ports, but says they are "not connected":

View image: usb

I think it could possibly be a driver issue but im not sure where to find the drivers if that is the case.

My modem-router is in bridged mode (everything is disabled except internet), i have disabled windows firewall i have taken my firewall offline (until this issue is resolved) but still no one can access my server (they can't even join a game if i create a server)

if i go to port checker it says connection refused on all ports except port 80? how do i force open the ports?

i called my ISP and they say they should be open and there not blocking any ports.

I have a static ip address, 24Mbit up 2.5Mbit down.

when i run my filesharing program (for sharing files between my and my clients) and they try to download a file from me it says it will take (99years, 99days, 99 hours) now i don't really have that long to wait

edit: and yes my network properties are configured manually (and not on auto detect) i have no problem accessing the internet myself

A:Opening ports, i have the firewall disabled but ports are still blocked

It would be better to open the ports in the running firewall than to turn it off. Firewalls load drivers, running or not. Many firewalls block everything by default when they are turned off so that the machine is protected during boot.

You may need to uninstall some firewalls to get them to open all ports.

Based on this info does it seem likely that the front ports themselves are faulty?

At some point, I don't know when, all 3 USB ports started screwing up. The two on the left side don't work.

A:Problem with USB ports working

Welcome to Seven Forums Ken. I'm no hardware expert, but let me suggest something simple that often works with USB, touchpad, and other issues.

Remove the AC power if plugged in. Remove the battery. After removing both, hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds. Now, just let the laptop sit like that for approx. 1/2 hour. Plug the laptop back in and test the USB ports again. I know it sounds implausible, but it can certainly work. A Guy

I have a very annyoing problem; whenever I have a USB device plugged in, it keeps "reloading", meaning it all of a sudden loses it's connection with my computer, regains it a second later and the box saying that "new hardware has been found (or something like that)" pops up. Then it works fine for awhile but then it loses connection again and so on.
This is particularly annoying when I'm transferring files to a flash memory or external hard drive as the transferring is sometimes interrupted and the whole procedure has to be repeated.
Nothing shows up as strange in my hardware tab and I get no error messages at all, it just loses connection.
I'm running win XP with SP3.
Does anyone know what can be causing this? Any suggestions are welcome.

I have run into a problem with my PCI Expansion Ports

I have been using a 3 port USB PCI Card. The other day, any device plugged into the card quit working.

Did some troubleshooting, and found out that the card is receiving power only, and is not transmitting any data. Some of the USB Devices I have - Printer, Flash Drive, USB Hdd, USB Wifi Adapter, Mouse, keyboard, Sidewinder Control stick, webcam, and a UPS.

I plugged each one into the card, and they all received power, but no data. Windows is not detecting that the device is plugged in, but the device does light up the LED's

I do not have any other PCI cards to test to see if it is the Card, or the ports that are bad. It is doing the same thing on both of the PCI slots on my Motherboard.

All of the other USB ports are working fine.

Without testing in another computer I'd assume the card is bad. I went a different way, put a 4-port USB Hub in the floppy drive bracket on the front of the computer, connects to the internal power supply and the data cable plugs into a USB port on the back. I do have a couple of the PCI Add-in cards salvaged from other computers but like the front ports for accessibility.

My system has been running fine for months I have not added replaced any Problem with USB ports/mouse my hardware About a week ago my mouse froze on the screen A little while later a popup box in the lower right part of the screen says that a USB device was malfunctioning so it was disabled The weird part is that all I have to do is plug the mouse into another USB port and it installs the driver immediately and starts working Although it s really annoying to have to switch it back and forth every - minutes when you re trying to do something I thought maybe it was a virus but I did a virus scan and everything is clean I checked all my motherboard drivers Problem with my USB ports/mouse and BIOS version it s all up to date I really have no clue what would cause this I guess the first thing I thought is that the mouse is going bad but why would it keep working when you switch it into another USB port I don t know if anyone has any ideas they would be greatly appreciated nbsp

A:Problem with my USB ports/mouse

It's tough isolating a prob like that without actually switching to something you know
works on another system or another working usb device that can be used on your ports.
In other words, try your mouse on another system or another mouse on your system.
Or, try some other usb device, if you have one, to see if plays well with your usb ports.
More likely than not, if you have a couple usb ports and both/all do the same, it's probably the mouse.
Good luck.

When trying to use an external hard drive or flash drive, the system recognizes its presence as drive G: and the files on that device are visible on Windows Explorer. However, when trying to read or write I get an error message (see also the uploaded screen shot) saying:Windows was unable to save all the data for the file G:\$Mft. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere.A run of F12 diagnostics from bootup revealed no useful information as far as I can tell. On-line chat with Dell (this is an Optiplex GX260 machine) indicates a driver problem.Is this indeed likely to be a corrupted driver or driver failure, and if so where do I get the driver(s)? I've had little / no luck searching on Microsoft support. Thanks.

Hello nbsp For a while now my headphones that I usually plug into the audio jack are not working at all I have tried several headphones but it makes no difference The only way audio will come out is through a usb headphone usb adapter or through the speakers and also come out of the headphones at the same time I've downloaded and redownloaded and Audio problem serious general Jack Audio my audio devices and I'm completely frustrated at this point I've noticed that my speakers are set to go through the audio jack as well and thought disabling them would stop this problem But I was wrong Nothing I'm slowly getting more and more annoyed as the days go on without an answer Please I just need an answer I need my headphones to work again I've been having way too many problems lately but this is by far the worst The weirdest thing is for about a few days it was magically fixed after an update but reverted I don't understand and I can't stand it anymore nbsp Thank you

I turned on my laptop the other day and no audio would play from anything, like youtube videos or itunes. I checked my volume control nothing was muted. When I opened itunes I got a message saying "itunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/video playback may not operate properly". I tried to restart the laptop but had the same issue. So I went to the acer site and downloaded the audio driver for my laptop. Now the volume control icon has a red circle with a white x through it and says "audio device is disabled". I have a Acer aspire 7745g running Windows 7 64bit

I'm not sure if this is a problem unique to Qosmio, but I've been stumped for a while and can't seem to find anybody else with the same issue:

When I plug in a USB device into my ports, they aren't detected as USB devices. In Control Manager, they appear under "Other Devices" and I'm unable to use the device. I did find a workaround that works: Disable the USB device (in Control Manager), unplug it the USB device, plug it back in, and re-enable it. That seems to work, but I'd really like to be able to fix it so that I don't have to rely on that method every time.

Devices I have tried: Scandisk 16 gb memory stick; MIDI input device; External audio interface.
I'm currently using Widows 10.

Thanks, any help is appreciated!

Before I updated my Davis Vantage Pro2 Weather Station I was able to "communicate" my data to Weather Underground for world wide availability via Virtual Weather Station by Accuweather. The status says Comm 4 but it is not communicating. Weather underground is set up to receive data from my uploads so I doubt that is the problem. Any ideas? I don't seem to be able to check and see what comm ports are being used.

This evening I came across a problem. It seems anytime I attempt to connect to something through my network connection that requires ports 3501-3506 I am unable to do so. I am able to connect to the same services on other ports but any of these do not allow me access. I was wondering if this is a problem on my side, or if it is my ISP (Maybe they blocked them?) I disabled my firewall (ZoneAlarm) and attempted to connect and still no luck. I have had no problems with this for the past 3 months and all of a sudden it started happening.

Using XP Home if that helps.

A:Problem with Ports 3501-3506

Sometimes software firewalls have to be uninstalled in order for it to work. But if that fails and you have setup the forwarding right in your router I would think its the ISP. Also if your running SP2 make sure that firewall is disabled.

Hello I own an Edimax Router and I work with several applications that require port forwarding I forwarded the ports I needed and all worked fine for a long time About a week ago the programs started acting as if the ports were blocked I checked a number of times and the correct ports were still forwarded yet the programs / NAT / !

Some basic info about my current network setup.

I'm connected wireless in my apt to an airport express, that is connected through a 80ft cable to an airport extreme down in my business.

I.E. Computer => Airport Express => Airport Extreme => Cable Modem.

The airport express is in Bridge Mode so it shouldn't be doing anything more than propagating the settings of the Airport Extreme. The problem is, when I go to the port forwarding options in the Extreme and open up the port I want to use with the IP of the computer I want to use as a micro server, and check them on check port sites, they show the port as closed.

The computer I'm trying to open up to use is a mac with OS 10.6.8, it has its firewall disabled.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I noticed these past few days that my front USB 3.0 ports are not working. Whenever I plug a USB 2.0 flash drive into the front ports, the activity light on the flash drive itself does not turn on.

I did clean all old Windows updates using disk cleanup which may have caused the problem.

So far, I uninstalled the USB driver and tried to reinstall the software with no success.
I have attached a picture of a screenshot after the driver installation failed.
Thank you

A:Front USB ports not working, driver problem

Just a couple of questions, how did you reinstall the drivers? Through Device Manager or running from the motherboard disc utility? And did you have any USB devices plugged in when installed it?
Usually if you run the software from the motherboard disc and choose drivers you'll get a list of drivers with check boxes next to them, and any that aren't installed will be unchecked. Those would be the ones you need. The ASMedia XHCI controller is the driver for your mid board header which controls the front USB 3.0 ports and that look as if it's installed fine, so I'd run that motherboard utility and see what it shows up.
Also could you post a screenshot of Device Manager with the USB controllers section expanded.

For what it's worth I have a very similar set up in my back up rig (A10-5800k on an ASUS F2A85-V Pro) and have never got the front USB 3.0 ports working on the BitFenix front panel I added. Not saying we won't get yours working, just that you're certainly not alone with this issue.
