I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I can cast music to my Sony Bravia XBR 65x850b tv.
However when I have it as a a duplicate display sound I get on the speakers primary display does not come from the speakers on the TV.

On the device manager the TV shows as a media device.
However, the TV does not appear under sound.
Alll that shows under sound is
Speakers
Digital audio (S/PDIF). Digital audio is set as default

How can I have any sound on my PC desktop also come through my TV?

Do I disconnect my Speakers and have the sound come through my Samsung monitor?

What additional info might the list need to help solve this?

hey guys,

i just bought a new M-Audio Audiophile 2496 soundcard to enjoy great sound in a foobar2000 + flac combination.

i've successfully installed the Vista 32bit drivers in compatibility mode and everything worked fine until then.

after starting to listen to music, i've experienced that from time to time (doesn't matter if i do something with the PC or just leave it there only playing music) the sound starts hanging (and it sounds like stuttering) for 1-3 seconds. then it comes back to normal...and a few minutes later it happens again. it's VERY annoying...

tried playing with WMP (wasn't happy about it) but the same happens.
tried vista 64bit drivers but couldn't install them. tried old Windows XP SP2 drivers, installed fine but no sound.

any1 got any ideas?
am i the only one who has this issue? did i buy a broken soundcard?

please help.

thanx alot in advance

A:M-Audio Audiophile 2496 sound hanging/stuttering from time to time

m-audio are not very 'windows' friendly. they really haven't released a decent driver for xp x64 yet, let alone vista. great cards for linux and apple though, and xp 32bit. i wonder if any of the E-MU options in this price range would fair better...you could always go usb/firewire gear for recording...

I am on son's Clevo laptop and they tell me they have not had sound for a very long time.

I check, download and install latest drivers from the Clevo website, but still no sound.

I have deleted all device drivers and allowed Windows to rediscover the drivers again - everything went well but found a PCI device that could not find drivers for so put the yellow Exclamation Mark - but still no Audio Device.

I checked the BIOS, there is no option to turn on/off the sound so I presume audio is turned on as everything is integrated, but still the Sounds and Audio Device Properties says that there are No Audio Devices. So either the device is faulty or there is some other way of being able to get the computer to recognise the Audio Devices.

If there is any suggestion(s) it would be greatly appreciated.

A:Onboard sound but 'No Audio Device' in device properties

Sometimes kids overdrive the audio chips until they overheat and burn out. If burned out, it will not detect.
Might be time to disable the onboard sound and install an external sound card and software.

Alright, so here's the scoop. I recently formatted my computer into xp and updated it to sp3, but in the programs (aida64 among them) I was using to search for drivers it said that my sound device was outdated (Soundmax High Definition audio integrated device I think) and so I installed Soundmax's latest driver/ program. Yet that made the sound scratchy or added a fuzz to the sound that wasn't there before. I tried going back to a restore point but that didn't work so I disabled the device in Device Manager. Now the device doesn't even appear in the Manager, even after re installing the chipset and the program. Does this warrant a belarc report to be solved?
Any help would be much appreciated and thank you for your time.

Ok, I have this really annoying problem with my sound on my PC.

I'll be listening to anything, could be music, a video, playing a game, anything... and all of a sudden, my sound will get REALLY REALLY loud, almost to the point where my speakers could blow. Then it will go back down to normal after about 10 seconds, and the back up again. Sometimes when this is happening, I can even turn my speakers all the way down and still hear sound as if I didn't even turn them down.

Please help guys, i've been having this problem for awhile now and can't find a solution.

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Sound becomes loud from time to time. Any ideas?

Test your speakers first. Try them in another system. Or try some other speakers in your system to see if the same thing happens.

If you find that the problem is with your system (not the speakers) then first try updating your drivers for the sound chip. Let us know how it goes!

Recently I upgraded RAM to 2GB & processor was changed to AMD Turion(tm) X2 TL-60 2.00Ghz. I installed windows 7 and everything worked fine for a week with no issues.
Recently when switched on it showed red cross on volume device. When I checked in device manager the sound video & Game controller has disappeared.

I checked most of the site but unable to install the exact driver.

Even I tried to add with Legacy Drivers in Device Manager but failed to install the correct driver.Even I re installed my Windows 7 but same issue. When I click on Volume device to fix the issue end up with Hardware Changes has been effected.

Please help me whether it is an issue with Sound Card or with driver.

Hi Coolman12 and welcome to the forum!

I did some digging regarding your Zalman ZM-RSSC, unfortunately zalman never released vista driver support for it. If you were able to make it work for Vista, you're chances to make it work for Windows 7, that pretty much tells you that you're out of luck

But there's probably one thing you might be able to do to make it work. Please try the Windows 7 Driver solution. It could be worth a shot.

Hello there! So.. I'm in a pickle with my machine and Windows 7 after this latest update. On startup I get an error from MMDevApi.dll saying that it might not run on Windows or... something else. This also occurs anytime a program tries to use the sound card ie. WoW, Yahoo IM, Live IM, SL, etc. I've updated my sound card drivers to the newest ones. I still get an error that says the device is detected when going to "Sound Devices" in the control panel.

Trying to adjust the sounds themselves leads me to the Windows Audio thing... which won't start even from the component list.

Sound Card is a SB Audigy SE

A:No sound, no sound device detected, drives installed?

I have a similar fault with SB Xtreem Music - downloading the latest driver (2.18.0013) sems to corrupt Windows Audio file and it also prevents me from accessing the Control Panel, do you have this fault? otherwise sound is ok.

Hello, I used to have Vista on this computer and didn't have audio problems. I've upgraded to Windows 7 and use the latest drivers available for my sound card (Striker 7.1). I have also tried not using these drivers and instead using a USB sound card (Sennheiser that comes with one of their headsets).

My problem is that, some time after booting up my computer, the audio starts skipping/glitching every ~30 seconds (if not more). This will usually happen with almost 100% frequency after the computer goes into sleep mode. A reboot fixes this for some time and then it starts over. This happens with all audio sources (moves in VLC, music in iTunes, youtube, etc.)

I have absolutely no idea what could be causing this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A:Sound skips after some time (tried diff. sound cards)

This is apparently a fairly common problem in windows 7. Just google these forums for 'audiodg.exe', and you'll see tons of other people reporting the exact same thing.

I have the same problem and my solution ended up being to write a cmd script I can launch that runs

Code:
net stop audiosrv
net start audiosrv
This shuts audiodg.exe down and starts it back up. Sad part is I have to run this anywhere from every 10 to 30 minutes. Extremely annoying.

I have an hp pavilion dv6700 notebook and I can not get the wired lan to identify any networks. In addition, I am getting the little speaker icon with a red x that says no audio output device is installed. So you would think that you should just reinstall the drivers but there is nothing listed in the device manager and there is not even a tab for gaming and sound controllers. I have tried to install the drivers but get the error that the media device for these drivers is not present. The network adapter appears in the device manager and I have reinstalled the drivers many times and in different ways but to no avail. What kind of problem could this be and what else can I do? Did I mention that I have recovered to the factory state and still get these errors? I would think that this has something to do with windows update...

I've tried the following steps:

1. Ran HP Recovery Manager to re-install original audio drivers. However, "Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the device for this driver" appeared and was unsuccessful.

2. I've downloaded and attempted to install the Conexant driver, sp37858, specific for this notebook, from the HP website. Still, "Driver Installation Failed: could not find the device for this driver."

These were all ran as administrator. Any useful suggestions?

Have lost access to device manager after uninstalling Norton v 6 in Windows 7 system.

Had explorer problems after installing version 6.0 of Norton and decided to uninstall Norton. Unfortunately this seems to have created some weird results like not being able to access device manager.

Can run services and this shows Plug and Play are started automatically; does anyone of you know whether Norton made some register changes and/or some other magic that makes device manager unaccessable after uninstalling.

Many thanks in advance

Norton can do a lot of bad things to a system . . particularly if it is already infected.

Try some of the alternate methods here:

Hello!

I have an "Icy Box" USB2 external hard drive enclosure with a 160Gb drive installed connected to a USB2 socket on my XP Home Edition computer.

After turning the device on, it is recognised by the computer & an icon appears in the System Tray indicating that I can safely remove it if I want to so.

My problem is that after a while, (the time varies), the device fails to be recognised by the computer. I have to turn the power off to the device then turn it back on again. The device is then recognised again.

Any help on this matter would be appreciated - many thanks!

Best wishes to you all.

Tim Cutler.
 

A:Lost USB2 Device.

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Reconnect the USB devices and see if they're recognized properly.

My computer has lost the d drive. I have a Compaq Pesario 5461. I was having trouble installing a game and downloaded a new driver from the Compaq website. It apparantly was not the right one and the computer would no longer reconize the d drive. I was getting "d: device not ready". I contacted Compaq support who advised me to delete the cdrom from properties and the computer would auto detect it. It hasn't. I have tried taking the cdrw completely out and putting it back in, but it still doesn't auto detect it. It is completely out of device manager and won't reinstall. I searched this site but I'm not sure exactlly what to do in bios to correct.

I can't locate where to go to find my clock to put it back on the screen.There used to be a small screen I think ,been so long now, that had all kinds of little things you could put on the desktop including the clock, strange I can't remember any of the other little toys, but anyway, I could click it onto the desktop or click it off and I can't remember where to go to do that. The little screen used to come up every time it was rebooted, but I took it off the startup and can't remember what it was called. Don't really need the clock, but it was handy. Can you give me a clue where to look for these toys. RonT22

I would only make that recommendation based on whether the person will be overclocking. Neither Intel or AMD will package their CPU with a cooler that not sufficiently adequate under non-overclock conditions.

A:Direct 3D device lost problem

Hmm....in looking at your system specs, I see one possible weak point, the 350w power supply. Granted, it's an Antec, so the quality is there, but I don't really know if 350w is enough for a 64-bit CPU, an x800XL, and other stuff as well. That Direct3D error can be caused by power management problems, so it sounds like a possible candidate to me.

Try unplugging anything you don't need from your computer - run with one hard drive, one CD drive, and unplug any lights you have on. You can unplug case fans as well (NOT fans that are on heatsinks though), as long as you leave the case open and give it proper ventilation. If it helps at all, then that's probably it. That's just what popped out right away for me.

Every night usually between 8-10pm my DSL goes down. This has been going on for several months now (never happens during the day). I have replaced the DSL modem and my NIC card. Sometimes I can power cycle the modem and it will bring it back up, somethings that doesn't work. My modem is connected to a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router which is very secure. I have called Earthlink about this issue numerous times ... and I have spoken with Linksys ... but the problem goes on!!!

Can the Norton Log ... or any other log on my system help me figure out what is going on? Does this seem like a problem with the local telephone company that Earthlink rents space from?

Your thoughts/ideas would be most welcomed!!! I would like to end my frustration on this issue!

A:4 Port USB hub can only use 1 device at a time

It could be that the USB hub doesnt have enough power.... Thats my thought.

Have been cleaning drive with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware program and now, with almost all of the malware removed, XP Pro does not display the device manager upon demand, as well as no network adapter present and not able to even open the 'add hardware' icon in the control panel.

I also had run a new driver install for the wireless intel since I had the BSOD for w22n51.sys. It didn't install, saying the driver I had was up to date - I know now to uninstall the driver prior to attempting to update it since it is ver 8 or older. Until I get that done, I can't even display, let alone change anything.

Presently the computer is started in 'diagnostic' startup. Looking for some quick fixes - greatly appreciated!

A:Lost Audio Device after upgrading to XP pro on old VBOX computer

You can try downloading and installing Everest Free 2.2 from Major Geeks.

I don't remember the section, but I think you want Multimedia...could just be Audio---it'll tell you everything from mainboard to chipset to modem to...you get the picture.

That will get you the specifics...if there was a Sound Blaster or some other mainstream audio device, XP probably would have recognized and installed it.

Much luck...

Oh...and some older boxes might even have used the voice modem as a sound device.
Can you post a screencap of the device manager with all the categories expanded?
There may be clues in the chipset there.

My wife was reading email when the machine shut down and when it restarted most of everything on it was gone. My pictures, Microsoft Office, music files. The desktop background has changed colors and rearranged the icons. The time is an hour off.

I have an older Compaq Presario running XP.

I tried to use the system restore but the only restore point is right after this happened.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Every time I plug in a usb device on my lenovo t60p laptop whether it's a flash drive, ipod, or mouse it gives me the blue error screen and it reboots. I don't know much about it, but at the bottom it says "dumping physical memory to disk" or something like that, and something about a crash dump. I am running Windows 7 and I don't know what is wrong and how can I fix this?

when I use PCI Card which support usb 4 ports its works fine but I can't boot usb stick anymore via PCI please help me ...!

Without looking at the dump files, I would have to guess at a chipset driver problem. Try installing the lasest chipset drivers from lenovo.

Hello, am new here so i'm sorry if I make some silly mistake.

So here's my problem. It started yesterday when I somehow lose internet connection over time (around 10minutes to 3 hours) and I have to restart my modem in order to get my internet back. This problem cycles again and again.

I want to blame my modem but other devices in my network are working fine except my pc only.

I have restarted my pc / network adapter / flush dns / set to auto DCHP etc. but no avail. Same problem both under Windows 7 and Linux Mint. Resetting modem only cures the problem temporarily before it happens again.

Hopefully someone here have an idea what went wrong in my case. Thanks in advance.
 

A:No internet access after some time. Other device unaffected

As its the same issue with both Windows 7 and Linux Mint.
perhaps its a signal/channel issue

post which SSID name is yours, its located in the list, under network "Adapter Name" (1st column)
Note:
For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better. "A desirable signal level for a robust Wi-Fi connection will be green".

A:Long Boot Time and BSOD from Non-Existent Device

You could make a Restore Point and then un-install all greyed-out devices. You can use Device Manager to do this:

Remove Old Drivers After Upgrading to New Hardware - How-To Geek

or there's a program called Ghostbuster that can do it. This link talks of both methods:

Remove old, unused, hidden device drivers in Windows with GhostBuster | The Windows Club

I've never used Ghostbuster but am going to take a look at it.

EDIT: After looking at Ghostbuster I'm not sure at all about it--it seems it might be an "all or nothing" hidden device remover, and I prefer to uninstall in a more orderly/controlled manner. So, "use at your own risk".

I have a Dell Studio XPS 8000 running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. In March the PC started to BSOD every time a USB storage device was connected to it. Other USB devices like mouse or keyboard did not cause this problem. It happens with two different external hard drives and 7 different USB flash drives regardless of which USB port is used.

I tried to do a restore but the we only had two restore points, both after we started having this problem.

We have backed up all our data to another PC via network connection, before reinstalling Windows I thought perhaps someone on this forum would have some suggestions. I already went through the tutorial and tried the uninstalling the grayed out USB devices, four times with no change.

I have downloaded and run the SF utility as described, results are zipped up in the attached.

I also include a photo of the BSOD.

thanks

EDIT: From your Crash Dumps, it appears that the failing modules are SALVADOR.SYS, SPFDBUSI.SYS and Sahara.sys . It appears that all the modules are parts of Safend Data Protection Agent™ by Safend Ltd.

I would suggest you uninstall this program.

I ran chkdsk because my entire system crashed every time I plugged in a device- -ipod, blackberry, etc...
However, the computer crashed during stage 5/5, about 49% into it. It stays a 1.8 million files of 4.something scanned, didn't move from there in hours. After a hard reboot, I ran a system check, and it told me that it's not detecting any issues. I can now plug in my blackberry with no issues.... any thoughts on what's going on there?

A:my entire system crashed every time I plugged in a device

chkdsk can take hours to finish.
If it didn't outright crash, it was still working, you just won't see it do anything. I have had chkdsk run for an entire day before.

Might want to run Hard Drive diags. But there is no telling what the problem was.
Next time you run chkdsk, let it finish. It is not often that it just stops, unless there are real issues with the hard drive itself. Then it's time to replace it.

hi - i was just playing music on my dell latitude e4300 via bluetooth to a belkin bluetooth receiver connected to stereo.

somehow the connection got dropped - during a phone call on a land line. may be irrelevant.

now, i cannot get bluetooth connection back. there is no bluetooth icon in the system tray.

i cannot find 'bluetooth' devices in start>control panel> devices
--i have 2, and both ought to be there.

i unplugged bluetooth receiver, and had win 7 search for devices to add - no luck.

sure, i can reboot, and everything will probably come back.
but i am hoping for a better answer. i don't want to have to reboot every time the bluetooth connection gets lost.

i searched the web for a little, but only found unrelated posts, or posts with no answer. THANKS!
 

A:Bluetooth connection lost, icon gone from system tray, not in device manager

bluetooth light/icon on laptop, not screen is on; no bt

ok, i rebooted, thinking the bluetooth icon would again be in system tray, with the red in the middle, showing i have bluetooth capability, but that sound is not currently being directed to bluetooth.

no icon.

the dell laptop does have bluetooth icon illuminated on the laptop, just above the function keys - not on the screen at all / not in sys tray.

the bluetooth receiver is on, is working.

'add a device' is not finding this bt thingie.

Problem, after trying to remove a virus/maleware/currupted exe's, i seemed to have lost any information in my Device Manager and all my Network connections (both LAN and WIFI).

Not sure if this would have caused this, When dealing with the exe problems (whether it was virus, maleware or anything) i was in safemode.. I did a msconfig and clicked on boot.ini. I checked safeboot. Apon the next reboot i had no network connections, no device manager. But interesting enough my problem went away and was able to access anything again. I went back into msconfig to renable boot.ini to the original setting and an still have the same problem...
So my problem is i have NO network connections, no LAN or WIFI options.

Only after i enabled Safeboot in Boot.INI in MSCONFIG.

MSCONFIG settings set back to original settings.

System restore was apperntly off.
Any ideas?

Hmmm,
Try using PhotoRec http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec
Or
PCI Smart Recovery http://www.pcinspector.de/Sites/smart_recovery/info.htm?language=1

Those will attempt to recover pictures off a disk/flash memory.

I have a 'no sound' problem. Sound device and volume control don't show. Clicked on sound and audio devices. Under Audio, everything is gray. Could downloading XP SP3 have caused this? By the way IE7 also disappeared Downloaded IE8, but no sound still. I like to listen to music. WMP is default. Downloaded
RealPlayer. No sound. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Lost sound

I have a 'no sound' problem. Sound device and volume control don't show. Clicked on sound and audio devices. Under Audio, everything is gray. If it's gray, that's usually an indication that the sound drivers are not installed. You'll need to re-install them-hopefully that will solve your issue. If it does, great. If not, post back and we'll do our best to help you get this sorted out.I'm not able to answer your question about SP3 being the cause-someone with more knowledge than I have will have to answer it.
