Hi Folks I was playing Oblivion and was messing with some of the many mods I use with the game I noticed after restarting the game sound partial lost Suddenly that some of the sound was malfunctioning such as the voice dialouge and certain sound effects such as casting a lightening spell or a fireball After further investigation I discovered that I had similar problems in other games as well so I knew it wasnt just Oblivion When watching videos such as You tube I have music but no voice Also some of the Windows system sounds will no longer play but others will So in short I can hear music being played though that sometimes gets warbly but in general cannot hear any voice or special effect type sounds wether it be in games or watching YouTube Media Player or listening to ITunes I should also mention that at times the sounds seem to be trying to play like they re very faint and distorted but usually there is just silence Here are the basics of my system Windows XP Home Sp AMD x Processor Biostar TA GX A Motherboard GB OCX dual channel memory GeForce GT mb graphics At the time of the problem I was running the on board sound in the AMD GX chipset but have since switched to a SoundBlaster X-fi Extremegamer card Here is what I ve done to troubleshoot the problem but to no avail -Reinstalled the latest MB chipset and Suddenly lost partial sound Audio drivers -Reflashed with the latest BIOS update -Purchased and installed the SoundBlaster card mentioned above -Wiped the hard drive and reinstalled Windows with all updates -Downloaded and installed K-Lite Codec Pack standard and ran the repair options Which messed up my ability to open the Windows sound control specifically SNDVOL EXE I suspect that after everything I ve tried there must be something wrong with my motherboard I ve tried to look for specific sound issues related to my MB on the net but didnt really come up with anything helpful Any suggestions would be appreciated This board is only a year old and I d rather not go buy a new MB at this point Thanks nbsphttp://www.techspot.com/community/topics/suddenly-lost-partial-sound.140603/
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.)

Just lost my sound on my laptop
It's a Inspiron 1545
The sound control is NOT on mute
When I did the test the chime sound worked, but I can't seem to watch any movies or anything else.
Thanks in advance
Just got it fixed.
Seems AVG and the firewall got involved somehow.
Somehow I got it going again.
No sound at all. Have tried updating windows, and uninstalling/reinstalling my sound card drivers which are up to date.
When audio is playing, my computer seems to detect that there is sound there. The little green meter is bouncing as if there is something playing and sound is coming out.
Using Soundblaster X-FI X-treme audio.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
Have you tried unplugging from elec. and usb. Change usb to another port?http://www.sevenforums.com/sound-audio/115476-suddenly-lost-all-sound.html

While working on a project, my PC suddenly lost its sound. Windows media player also malfunctions and I always get the error "windows media player encountered a problem while playing the file" GOM also doesn't work properly when playing audio files.
these are the things that I already did:
check the speakers if they are working on a different PC
updated/reinstalled the driver for the audio
checked if the audio is disabled
troubleshoot for errors
everything that the windows website suggested
I also tried almost all the solutions I saw from the net no luck
what happens in this video is what exactly happened to me:
windows edition: Windows 7 ultimate
help pls I'm about to cry already
I moved house and plugged the TV into the aerial and am using freeview. Yesterday morning (28/8/12) the TV was working perfectly fine. I then turned it on again in the evening and the sound had stopped working. I have a perfect picture but no sound whatsoever. I have tried mute and un-mute; turning the volume right up; resetting the whole TV (3 times); retuning the freeview channels (4 times); trying a different aerial cable; and also trying to attach external speakers. Nothing has worked at all and I am getting frustrated as the TV is only about 5 years old. Please Help!
Sounds like the audio circuitry has failed. Don't know that there is anything that can be done aside from having it serviced.

If you are connecting directly to your cable modem this may be part of your issue. Some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) locked the cable modem to the device it is connect to it. In order to connect a new/different device you need to power cycle the cable modem.
I would recommend if at all possible to connect through a router. A route makes it easier to connect multiple devices to your Internet connection and provides a level of security by dropping all non-requested information.
When your Internet is not working run IPCONFIG from a command prompt and see what your IP address is that will be helpful in determining where your issue is.
Not sure if I'm in the right place, but here goes. I recently did a partial system recovery and when I was done, everything was in it's right place except for one folder. I did a search and located it in USERDATA but was unable to access it. I managed to gain ownership of the folder but when I opened it, the folder was empty! Why would this happen and is there any way I can recover the lost files? I even downloaded a file recovery program but I still cannot find the files although I have found other crap that has been deleted. Does anyone have any advice as to what can be done? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hello and welcome to the forum
What do you mean by "Partial System Recovery" . . . what exactly did you do?
Try not to use the machine since using it will make any data recovery more difficult
After partial scan, MSE consistently reboots on a Windows Installer file
Everytime I launch a custom scan on the Windows Installer Folder, MSE reboots close to the address C:\Windows\Installer\11bc85fg.msp. I have not been able to complete a full scan in a month.
All of my desktop files have disappeared. I downloaded and ran 'Unhide" but this does not produce any results.
Randomly, outside of MSE, I will get an error message that says:
"The instruction at Ox100053a0 referenced memory at Ox100053a0. The memory could not be read."
I need some guidance to recover my files. There are no other signs of a virus and no further damage appears to be taking place.

System Restore only puts your PC back to the state it was as of the Restore Date. It does not reinstall the OS. You must have hit something else. If you started reinstalling the OS, it would have formatted everything. Let me ask a question. Did you only have a C: drive in your PC or was there a D: and E: maybe? A OS Install will only format drive C:. If you have a D: drive, it will not format that. How many drives do you have?http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/375504-startup-repair-offline-partial-restore-lost-data.html

Sorry to get back here late. Been busy the last couple of days.OK, there are a couple of free partition recovery programs that come to mind. The first is called Testdisk. Testdisk is the more comprehensive of the 2 but a little more difficult to use. The other one is Easeus Partition Wizard. Be sure to read all the instructions before using either.http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/Test...http://www.easeus.com/partition-rec...A RAW partition usually occurs when you interrupt the writing to the disk before it has completed.message edited by OtheHillhttp://www.computing.net/answers/windows-7/startup-repair-offline-partial-restore-lost-data/18893.html
PLEASE help. I have sound when using Windows Media player.. but none when using Adobe Media Player. I have sound for Itunes, so I know it isn't a speaker program.

Hi- I'm having some problems with the sound on our computer. When I go to the library on Windows Media player I can hear the music fine but when I'm on the internet I'm not able to get any sound through the various webpages. I also tried to play a DVD on the same computer and it played but there was no sound either, when I tried to save the DCD to our hard drive I recieved this message- "Cannot create or replace VIDEO_TS: Cannot find the specified path". Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm using an Inspiron 530 with Windows XP if that helps any. Thanks!
Since a few months my notebook is having several issues of which I do not know if they are related USB failure Partial and keyboard sound, to one another or not The problems are - The USB ports the two on the right hand side sometimes stop Partial failure sound, USB and keyboard functioning and they won't start up until the computer has been restarted sometimes that needs to be done several times nbsp The ports still provide the external harddrive with power but Partial failure sound, USB and keyboard the computer doesn't recognise it - The sound sometimes stops after the audio has been paused Sometimes if I pause a song or movie there is no sound when I start to play it again until the laptop has restarted again contrary to the USB ports restarting always solves the problem This happens with different media types and programs I always use speakers either through the mm port or using a HDMI cord - The zero and three on the numpad of the keyboard don't work at all I doubt this is related but I wanted to mention it anyway nbsp The laptop came with windows professional bit it has had several windows versions on it after that but on march th I reinstalled the laptop with the original operating system after formatting it and partitioning the harddisk I did this using the original license and the original drivers coming from the provided disc After installing it I checked for updates using the HP tool Last winter it started having the forementioned issues so I decided to upgrade to windows since I figured that some drivers might not be updated for windows anymore It seems that that didn't make any difference and now I don't know how to solve these problems Can anyone tell me what else I could try nbsphttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Partial-failure-sound-USB-and-keyboard/td-p/5615082

Hi emptydew. Just a couple of questions:
1 - Did you follow the Dell instructions for a OS reinstall. You would need to reinstall your chipset drivers first, followed by other drivers?
2 - Did you reinstall the proper sound card drivers?
3 - Have you checked your systems "Device Manager", for any yellow Exclamation points/Question marks?
4 - Have you tried turning cycled (rebooted) the power to your subwoofer/speaker system, and reseating all of your subwoofer and speaker wires for proper connections? (I had a similar problem once with a Dell system, this solved it)
I would start there and then let us know what happens. Good luck.
part of our windows xp was removed how can we download the missing parts to put our computer back in action
Thats a very vague description so can you explain more please and have you tried system restore yet ?

Recently my desktop decided it wasn't going to co-operate anymore. After a lot of googling and many patience lost I decided I would throw in the towl and ask for help lol.
I have no sound whatsoever, not from mp3s and not from streaming. Streaming video chops every half a second, but I can play downloaded avi video, still with no sound.
I ran malware bytes, no infections. and nothing from avg.
I tried system restore, both times it failed for some reason, at 2 different restore points.
my video card is working and so is my sound card.
im a do it yourself type person but this one has me beat, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
I have the same problem. Yesterday morning I booted up and all of a sudden there is no sound. And Windows media player will not work ... no video or audio. I have checked all cables and connections...plugged in different speakers and checked for system sounds which don't work as well. I get video from movies and videos with GOM player and internet videos but no sound.
About concluded that motherboard may be cause, but really don't want to install a new one.
Does anyone have a better idea?
So, all of a sudden, my devices can't see each other. It was all working fine until yesterday. Here's what has changed since I last used my network: I installed a game called Magic Online and I had to reset my router to factory defaults. I can't figure this one out. I don't know what other info I can provide. It just happened suddenly.
Strange, but not much info to go on. I would certainly try first a system restore to before the problem started and then we will go from there. Let me know it this helps? Step 2 I would check channels on router and then network card.http://www.vistax64.com/network-sharing/235140-lost-network-suddenly.html

One day while/after downloading some movies, runnung some registry repairs by glary,(no emmeddiate effect?)I could not open any files or programs without selecting run as admin and even then I am limited! I am given the message do not have the appropriate permissions. My network sevice has stopped (WCZ) I've tried logging in as an administrator, no improvement, less actually. And, the programs in startup do not load in the bar. Ive tried system restores and even a recovery which gave me a message; stopc0000218. What can I do? Puzzled? Do i have to re-enter my hivefiles?
I see you refer to running registry repairs by glary (sorry I do not know what this is) and feel there is a chance this has caused a corruption in the registry. The message can sometimes point to a problem with the hard drive. I would have suggested running a diagnostic on the hard disk, but you can't rule out registry damage (others may not agree but as I say I have not heard of glary).http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/suddenly-i-lost-my-permission-208892.html
Earlier today, while I was using I was so shocked when I couldn't find a certain application (SynciOS). When I couldn't find it, I checked in the start menu and every time I opened it, applications were disappearing one by one. So I decided to restart and all my desktop icons were gone (Save the Recycle Bin and My Computer).
I checked all the partitions and found out that only the C partition was affected; D and E were untouched.
Google Chrome, which was in the C partition, was also gone but the history remains but the bookmarks are gone. MS Office applications were also gone but they were automatically redownloaded.
The sticky notes that were in my desktop remained, though.
I have not setup a system restore point so I couldn't possibly use that.
Any idea as to what happened?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
By the way, Paint is also gone.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/suddenly-lost-files-1036897.html

DVD Drive do not require a special driver and do not need one to be recognized by the PC BIOS. I would also check the BIOS to see if it is showing there. Also suggest making sure connections on inside are secured, can try changing SATA cable and make sure power connector is secure. Only thing some optical drives may need are firmware updates which you can get from Lite-On.http://www.tenforums.com/drivers-hardware/36254-lost-lite-cd-dvd-burner-suddenly.html
I have an HP EliteBook 6930p with windows 7 installed and everything was working fine until i did a recent windows upgrade (might just be a coincidence) and i suddenly lost internet connection. My laptop picks up the router, shows full strength but i cannot connect to the internet wireless or Ethernet cable. I restored to a previous date and it worked fine, and all my other devices work fine (iPad, iPhone, other laptops). The trouble is when i connected to the internet again it up dated windows and i cant restore back to the original date anymore as it has gone from the list.
Thinking i might have picked up a virus along the way.
Any help would be appreciated

Hi and hope you can help I care for a senior citizen a few nights a week in lost hotspot connection my Suddenly a home without internet service and have been using my HP Presario Suddenly lost my hotspot connection CQ up until now to log onto an xfinitywifi Suddenly lost my hotspot connection hotspot through my own account I also have an HP Pavilion I can use but for some reason that laptop does not have as strong as signal as the Presario and the signal was not reliable But with the Presario I have had no problem logging on until now and the bars in my network listing are usually or strong One night recently I lost my connection and have not been able to log back on since The xfinitywifi has pretty much disappeared although it pops up every so often for a moment or two but only with one bar and also shows being out of range on my android Most of the other networks usually in the list were gone as well also just popping up here and there for a moment and only with one bar But a new listing appeared at the same time this happened and seems to be a strong one with to bars One other older network besides the new one seems to remain strong and both are netgear routers So my assumption is that this new network is somehow sending out signals that along with the other network are blocking me from picking up signals Knowing a little and very little about all this my fist thought was to change my channel However I could not figure out how to change the channel on an internal modem router Realtek in my laptop I tried downloading some programs to try and find out what was going on I didn t have much luck understanding them but with one program called Heatmapper I got some info about the other networks What I did find out was that the new network seems to have less of a mbps reading whatever that is than the other netgear that has been there but never caused any problems So my guess is that this new network and I have no idea where it is coming from is sending out wifi signals that along with the other older one are blocking this house from receiving the xfinitywifi hotspot signals I did check and the hotspot is still valid I did try tethering my phone signal but it is simply too slow to be able to do anything worthwhile I am miserable not having my internet while I m there through the night and hope there is a way I can somehow stop the signals from interfering with mine or do something to my computer that would allow me to again pick up strong signals again to log on play my games watch my videos etc I do have old routers a clear express hub and a netgear wnr v if either could help I can t afford too much so would appreciate if any solutions were economical Thank you so much in advance for your help amp amp nbsp
On most recent bootup, my Toshiba Mini-Laptop won't recognize the wireless connection. It worked fine last night. It is model NB-205-N310/BN. The OS is Win XP Home Edition. Message screen states that Windows is no longer managing the wireless connection. Went through process of re-establishing Windows as wireless manager, but it keeps coming back with the same message. I feel like I'm overlooking something simple. Isn't there a "Wireless connection wizard" in WinXP???
I was using my little PC laptop and it fell, and suddenly the internet doesn't work.
It doesn't show me any wireless option at all (in bottom right corner. or in control panel)
and in "Network Connections"
there isn't the wireless option as there used to be.
Now it only has 'LAN or high speed internet"
I've tried looking at old threads but haven't found anything suited.
Is there a way to reactivate? I've tried everything I can think of! (laptop has no CD drive)
thanks in advance
Can u check in ( assuming ur running Win XP Pro ) Right Click My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager to see what is the status of the device. ( any signs )
Your System specs too wud help ( whether u hav an external wireless card adapter....)
I remember my C:drive had 162GB free space before installing Nero 7 Premium.
After I installed it, a couple of hours passed and I was surprised to find my C: drive free space was 153GB.
NOt sure what happened ......... I checked Nero 7 installed size in control panel --> Uninstall or change a program --> it was showing 1.35GB.
This math doesn't make a big sense.
I'm wondering where that 7-8gb disappeared !

Same here!!! I'm using an HP ProBook 4320s (Energy Star). I can't find any wireless driver in device manager on Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit.

While I was printing a document on Word 2010 Monday (using a Dell studio s15z laptop), and the printer just stopped mid-job. Troubleshooting, I turned it off, rebooted the laptop -- and now Word has no printers, it has even lost the option to print to a pdf file through Adobe Acrobat. When I try to add a printer I get "The Active Domain Directory Services is currently unavailable". I can still see the printers in "Devices and Printers" and just downloaded a new driver for the printer I have here at work (an HP Laserjet 1018). I print via USB cable, not a network, and can still see other printers (available via network, which I don't use) when I try to add a device via the control panel. But Word sees nothing and refused to 'add'. What gives? (updating Adobe Acrobat didn't help either)
Addendum. I have a new tab labelled Acrobat and can indeed print to a pdf via that tab. So perhaps this is a driver issue after all?http://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/192746-word-2010-suddenly-lost-all-printers-wont-add-them-back.html

Mad Dog MD-16xDVD9A2 running on WinXP, worked fine up until tonight. I went to burn a DVD (Memorex DVD+R) and all of a sudden it won't show any speed faster than 4x! It's supposed to go up to 16 and I normally burn at 12.
I normally use Memorex discs and have had no problems with them. +R and -R both work well. I have burned numerous discs from this particular pack and they have burned, verified, and played without problems. In fact, I burned a disc just a few days ago and it was fine! Nothing has changed - just the higher speeds have suddenly vanished!
Windows hardware manager says "the device is working properly."
Did an online driver scan and it found no problems with the driver. Downloaded firmware for the burner anyway but have not installed it.
Any reason why this burner should all of a sudden start misbehaving?

Sorry for the post, problem's been solved!
My buddy came over and worked on it for a bit. Apparently, after a week of using the network, the new DHCP settings kicked in, and both the router (which I guess can be a modem too?) and modem were both trying to control the DHCP, screwing everything up, or something. That's my translation based on my limited Japanese

I have had win8 for approx 1 year and just upgraded to win8.1 last week.
I installed bitdefender total security at the same time and everything was fine for a few days until one morning I woke up my Laptop to find I couldnt open a software program. Further investigation has found that I can not alter anything on my machine.
I have only the one user account which has my name, email, Administrator and password protected showing.
I can use my laptop still but have no admin rights at all.
When i try to open command prompt (admin) it takes a few minutes to come back with an error saying cannot access specified path, file folder etc...
I am pulling my hair out as i cant even restore my system back to factory settings.
How can I restore my factory settings from this point??

I have weird recurring problem with my laptop. After running chkdsk (which takes couple of hours) my hard drive becomes suddenly full. Normally I have about 150 - 200 GB of data on my laptop, after mentioned procedure, suddenly I have no space left as (according to My Computer space indicator). It happened to me before, full system recovery did the trick, but I would prefer to avoid it. I'm running windows 7 premium 64 bit on my Lenovo y580. I've tried exploring my disc with programs like treesize, but it shows that I have only 200GB in use... Another thing to mention that might help a bit is that during chkdsk /b, there was a huge number (100 million -ish) of sectors moved to bad cluster file (or something similar). Any advices? Many thanks for help!
Both CHKDSK taking a long time and identification of lots of bad sections are clear indication of a failing drive.
The sooner you get stuff off this drive and onto another new drive, the better.

High Definition Audio
Generally, if you only have "High Definition Audio" that indicates the generic, basic function, Windows installed sound driver. That is not the actual sound driver for you sound hardware device. Suggest you check with the PC vendor for the actual sound driver. If they have Win 7 driver great, if they only have Vista that is OK as Vista drivers are applicable to Win 7.http://www.sevenforums.com/sound-audio/347173-sound-suddenly-cut-off.html

I was traveling several weeks ago and all of a sudden my speakers stopped working (around the same time I could no longer download Windows updates -- Broni worked with me on that and I am malware free and currently updated). I hooked up some external speakers and they don't work either. I don't even get the Windows sound when I boot up. I checked devices looking for that yellow triangle with the black exclamation point but there is no such thing.
Any suggestions on how I can find out what is wrong?
My sound device is "SoundMAX Integrated Digital HD Audio"
Sound on youtube bad..skips & warbles. Media player bad also. SoundMax Analog speakers. Control panel test shows all sounds good there..?? I'm perplexed and don't know what to do. Can someone help?
Try the speakers with another device.
Play a music CD, see if problem remains.
Uninstall audio drives, then reinstall.
Run Windows Sound Troubleshooter (Help menu, type "audio") and DirectX troubleshooter/diagnostic.
the sound on my xp home edition has suddenly gone with regard to the sound of a rifle when the yahoo e mails come in

Everything has been working alright until today. Turned on my computer, went to YouTube to listen to some music and I'm not getting any sound at all. No sound in my games or anywhere else at all.
When I go on Skype and into the audio controls. It does register sound, but I'm not hearing anything.
What I'm using:
- Asus Xonar DX
- Steel Series Siberia V2 (analog)
I asume you have already checked, if anything has been unpluged by accident?
-What does it show in Sound -> Playback
(Windows + R -> mmsys.cpl)
- Any notifications in Device Manager -> Sound, video and game controllers?
- Any recent updates / changes recently?
I'm running Windows 98 and I have been listening to mp3s on the Windows media player and Real jukebox with TBS
Montego II, Altec Lansing speakers w/ a sub-woofer. I have the equilizer off and just use default settings and the tunes
sounded great, until one fatefull day
it all sounded 'backwards'. All the music is still there, it just sounds as though someone has re-mixed it so now fore-ground
is in back-ground and visa-versa. My game sounds the same, we watch DVD's and that sounds fine and I think the .wav
files are fine, it just seems like the MP3's have been affected.
I'm not the only user of this desk top and I'm a bit of a comp newbie.
It's definitely not a hardware problem as one minute it's all working, then it suddenly stops. I've tried everything. My sound card drivers are all up to date, it also happens at the same time as youtube videos stop playing on google chrome (despite them loading), windows media player is unable to play and an error occured on youtube on firefox.
However after a few hours it finally lets me on the "configure speakers" setting and I click test and it begins to play sounds again, from then on it plays sound and loads videos. Is this a virus or a software problem? Please help!
Edit: When I click "test" it tells me "The device is being used by another application. Please close any devices that are playing audio to this device and then try again."
You did not indicate you computer make and model also the sound card.
Uninstall the sound card driver in Device Manager and reboot, Windows will install its generic driver and check if the sound returns to normal.
Have you ran any registry cleaner lately, something may have corrupted Windows and a Refresh may be in order.
You may also try sfc /scannow in the elevated command prompt, it will take a while.
I've just been browsing the threads for answers and see that Kyte Eternal posted exactly my problem on a thread entitled "No sound on computer". Trouble is, his problem was solved before the next step was given.
I have checked everything, including my device drivers and nothing seems to be wrong. I used headphones and speakers but nothing is coming out of any of them. When Windows boots up, there isn't even the MS chime.
As with Kyte's problem this happened suddenly, everything was fine yesterday. It doesn't seem to be drivers and I have no "CD that came with the computer" because it was built from scratch by my son.
Yes, I could get him to look at it but I'm an independent old gal, and I'd like to solve it - if you can give me any advice on how to do that.
Thanks a million

Before when my volume level was at 1 or 2 it plays really loud and clear now i have to turn it up all the way to 18- 26, I am using external speakers i dont know what the problem could be any ideas?
I have some very strange symptoms. Everything was working just fine this morning. This afternoon I went to play a game and suddenly there was no sound. Windows Media also won't play anything, it keeps giving me an error message.
I've tried everything. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers. I've reinstalled the recommended codecs. I've run Anti-Malware, IOBit, and AVG with no luck finding any virus or registry problems. I even tried to do a System Restore and it won't let.
At this point, I'm stumped and am looking for any help I can get. I'd hate to have to reload the OS.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello! I suddenly have no sound.
Device Manager says "High Definition Audio Device: This device is working properly."
I know nothing about drivers, where to find them, how to update them, etc.
The only thing I can think went wrong is I removed media player from startup because I was getting a bunch of adware popups to update media player, update codex, etc.
What do you think?
Hello! Here's a place for you to start!!
PS A easy fix might be to restore to a earlier time when you had sound and before you removed Media player from start ups.
I added a sound card to this computer It was working fine but for the last few months the sound will just suddenly go away The only way to get away suddenly goes Sound it back is to shutdown restart During shutdown the windows chime will go off I ve had it stop in the middle of playing a youtube video--usually if Sound suddenly goes away it is paused then restarted It as just stopped during games pandora etc Sound will not return unless computer is shutdown restarted Any thoughts how to fix Thank you Nicole Here are my computer specs Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version OS Version Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack bit Processor Intel R Pentium R D CPU GHz x Family Model Stepping Processor Count RAM Mb Graphics Card ATI ES Mb Hard Drives C Total - MB Free - MB D Total - MB Free - MB E Total - MB Free - MB Motherboard Dell Inc YH Antivirus AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition Updated Yes On-Demand Scanner Enabled nbsphttps://forums.techguy.org/threads/sound-suddenly-goes-away.1031079/
Yesterday, while watching videos on Youtube suddenly the sound level went drastically down. There's still sound, the volume is just really really low.
I have checked the audio levels (both on my system and the youtube volume) and they are maxed out.
When I play a CD or for that matter, watch videos elsewhere online, the sound is fine. (oddity: the sound on youtube is also fine if it is linked through another page, for instance I can hear the video on http://trine-thegame.com/site/ just fine, but it is a youtube video... ?! )
Any ideas on what happened yesterday and how I should fix it?
(Btw, I have a laptop with windows XP)
first thing i would do this probably isnt going to work by try it anyway erase all cookies, then run a antirus program, then if that all fails the probable cause is a driver issue. follow process: only if you have a sound card driver disk if not you can make one!
disconect back power cord
use a anti static wrist band or something to ground yourself
take out the sound card
wait a few seconds then put it back in
put you driver disk in for your sound card and reinstall sound card drivers
this should solve the problem
hello vista forums, today ichanged my language for non-unicode programs to another language, to make a foreign program work, after i restarted my computer, the sound doesn't work. on the bottom right on my taskbar, i can see that the speaker has 3 lines coming out, so my computer definitely isn't mute.
how do i possibly fix this?
Try system restore to a time before you made the changes.
Go to start menu,all programs,accessories,system tools,system restore.

All of a sudden this afternoon, no sound coming out of my computer. Not sure how or why? Volume is up on speakers, and they are carefully plugged in. Volume control on the task bar is up and not muted. Legacy audio drivers seem to be working fine. Any suggestions?
...Update. Apparently some programs have sound, like itunes. I ran and my music seems to play fine. No normal windows sounds though, and a game I just installed has no sound either...
Can't help you but I have the same problem. My sound comes and goes. I even bought new speakers. I asked before and no one ne wthe answer. At least this will bump it back to the top of the page. Maybe someone can help.
I am using Vista, and it states "No Audio output device is installed."
I go to device manager, Sound, Video and Game Controllers has suddenly disappeared.
Reinstalling the driver did nothing to help the problem
Is it possible that the speakers were unplugged somehow? I do carry the laptop around with me.
Go into services.msc and make sure that the Audio Service is running and set to automatic.
Regards. . .
I have no idea whats happened, but sound just gone from my laptop, it happened first time to me after i turned off laptop and turned on few hours later.
Most interesting that i still see the sound bar jumping in windows volume controller
so its seems windows thinks that sound works just fine, while i play mp3 file, windows gives no erros at all. I also use SRS WOW HD sound filter, witch one also shows jumping bars
and the drivers seems, ok, no errors at all
what could be possibly wrong? idk what to try to do :/
the first thing i would check is to see if anything is muted. right-click the speaker icon next to the clock and select "open volume mixer".
if that doesnt solve the problem, right-click the icon again and select "playback devices" and make sure the correct device is set as default.
most laptops have hotkeys to turn devices on and off. make sure you didnt inadvertantly press one.
if you use external speakers, disconnect the power for about 15 minutes. and also make sure they are plugged in to the correct port on the laptop.
This morning, the sound stopped working, however, the only sound i can get is if i go to the realtek sound manager thing by gigabyte tech. (Audio device:Realtek AC97 i think) and then start the jack sense thing. I get a few 'zap' sounds but if i play music, then the music will play with the 'zaps' but only for a second or 2, then no sound.
After the jack-sense, i get a pop up saying i needa check the front and center/subwoofer speakers, but the speakers are in-built to my monitor, so i don't know what to do...
Sound was working fine yesterday, but failed this morning.
P.S. i tried plugging in several headphones on the front of the comp, but no sound.
This is primarily due to two things:
1. Your Sound-drivers are either not there anymore.
2. Your Sound card is defective.
Check your Sound card Drivers first:
If Windows Go> Start> Control Panel > Sound Settings > I think its the General Tab it should allow you to move the sound up and down. If it "grayed out" then
your sound card drivers are missing. (sorry I am on a MAC right now)
OR-->Start>My Computer> Device Manager> Check under the Sound Card make sure there is NO yellow "?" on the Sound-card realtek..
I would right click on the Sound Card and click "Update Drivers"
Post your reply to see if the Drivers are there...
I m forced to use an IBM ThinkPad that was made for Windows NT and but was recently updated with XP Pro It s good enough as of now but my one issue with it is that sound playback is crap and when you want to watch a video on Stops So, Sound The Suddenly say YouTube you barely can because the video skips and the sound plays ahead of what is shown on the video And when I m listening to an mp the song will warp and sound distorted for a millisecond every seconds or so Doesn t sound So, The Sound Suddenly Stops like much but it gets annoying I finally came here because I need to find a solution to this I went on YouTube today to watch some videos but I couldn t because I couldn t hear anything I tried checking the volume on the laptop but an error message came up saying quot There are no active mixer devices available To install mixer devices go to Control Panel click Printers and Other Hardware and then click Add Hardware This program will now close quot I ve tried it Don t know what to do further than clicking on Add Hardware This has never happened before so why is it happening now I ve tried using System Restore I thought it worked at first but that was before I realized that I can still hear sound on the laptop but I just can t hear sound from programs I guess this happened overnight because this wasn t happening previously What could be wrong
I would try installing this. Works for me.http://www.filehippo.com/download_klite_codec_pack/Good luckhttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/161340/so-the-sound-suddenly-stops/
