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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Look for audio drivers on the motherboard CD delivered to when after purchasing your system. If you can't find it or don't have mobo CD around, navigate to manufacturer website and download driver for audio device from there.

Good luck!!

I've recently built a new computer and so far I've had a lot of issues with the audio.
It worked to begin with, the first few hours, but after several installs of different software it stopped working.

I've tried to uninstall/install drivers over and over again, reading on forums and so on trying to solve the problem...

All the three audio devices are faulty:

Internal audio
External sound card
Audio from GTX 580

This is how my device manager looks like:


CPU: Intel Core i7 Quad Processor i7-950
Motherboard: ASUS P6X58D Premium, Socket-1366
RAM: Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600MHz 12GB CL8
HDD OS: Crucial RealSSD C300 2,5" 128GB
Graphic: EVGA GeForce GTX 580 1536MB PhysX CUDA
PSU: Corsair AX 850W
OS: Windows 7 x64

Any help would be highly appreciated!!!

I have an unusual problem my Audio Output Devices are all sorts of confused I can't change | Cannot Sounds Simultaneously Devices Play Audio Disabled/Enabled the default device nor disable enable any devices and no sound comes out My notification tray shows there are No speakers of headphones plugged in Sometimes it says No Audio Output Device Is Installed If I click on it it tries to fix it but Audio Devices Disabled/Enabled Simultaneously | Cannot Play Sounds ends up showing the Audio device is disabled Not Fixed When I open up Playback Devices it is not disabled There is nothing under the Levels tab anymore I have all devices shown At this point I cannot change the default device nor disable certain devices even though the options are not greyed out amp I can select them Selecting the actions just does nothing I don't think it's a hardware issue because the audio devices change when I plug in the HDMI cable It still plays no audio over it but it switches the default device to the HDMI device I still cannot enable disable nor set default devices Selecting the actions just does nothing Here is my Device Manager content I've reinstalled the devices using the drivers from my device manufacturer I've heard that the HDMI graphics cards can interfere with the audio devices and to that end I have uninstalled amp deleted the drivers for both graphics devices amp both audio devices I've also used Driver Sweeper to remove the graphics devices This coupled with the odd behavior of not being able to enable disable set default devices makes me think it's not a driver issue but rather something deeper in Windows itself I've checked the Windows Audio Service and the Windows Audio Endpoint Builder Service and they are running and are under the correct accounts from what I've researched IMG IMG I've heard there can be permissions issues here but I'm not sure how to check that Here is some driver info for my graphics amp audio hardware and the HD Audio Controller It really seems like this is something messed up at a much deeper level than the audio devices themselves I'm going to run a scandisk to see if there's anything messed up there Any other thoughts or suggestions are greatly appreciated

I have three audio devices on my pc (ATI HDMI, Via HD onboard and steelseries usb soundcard) and through all devices I only get audio out of the left channel. I have tried two pairs on headphones and my tv speakers all with the same results. I have looked at all the balancing end everything is set to even on both channels.

Windows 7 X64 ultimate
M4A78 PRO Mobo Via HD audio
Steel Series Usb SoundCard

A:Audio Only out of one channel (multiple headsets and audio devices)

As you have three devices, each one separately generates the sound. The only thing common would be the sound itself, such as a wav or mp3 file.

When you use the PC's sound chip (VIA HD) that is one hardware device and the wired on the motherboard output jacks. If you use a USB connected sound device then you are using that device to generate the sound and that device's physical jacks. If you use the ATI HDMI, most video cards have their own built in audio chip (unless this is an old video card that uses S/PDIF connection to the motherboard) and thus again everything separate for audio generation and connection.

One comment, if you have both the Via on board audio and the usb connected sound card enabled at the same time there can be conflicts and sound problems. Not the balance problem you have but there can be problems. If you want to use the VIA then physically disconnect the USB. If you want to use the USB, disable the on-board audio in the BIOS.

I have just installed the audio driver for my motherboard, restarted the computer and it seems that driver doesn't do anything at all. I have the speaker icon in the tray bar with a red 'x' on it, and it says: "No Audio Output Device is installed". Why is that? I tried the driver that's on the motherboard CD and also the one from Realtek's website, and while they are different versions, the problem is identical.

Please advise.

A:Audio configuration no audio output devices?

If its not being detected at all in the Device Manager, it will not show up anywhere else.

When you boot up your PC, enter the BIOS (could be called "Setup") and check to see if the sound is disabled. If it is disabled in the BIOS it will not show up in Windows. If its showing as enabled in the BIOS, do a BIOS reset (to factory setup) and see if that makes a difference.

If its not disabled in the BIOS there is a chance the hardware has failed.

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.

Hello all~

I'm a solo recording artiest, and I have two different speaker set ups, one HD 5.1 which I have plugs into the 4 color coded jacks in the back (I use this set for it's 12inch subwoofer and mid-range quality checks), and one HD JVC duel speaker set up (which I use for it's tweeters and good vocal quality).

With both Windows 2000, and XP I have no problem playing audio through both speakers at the same time. Now, it only plays through the "Default" speaker setup which you choose. I searched through all the settings I could find in the audio options and have found no sign that Windows 7 is even able to use two devices at once (which is an epic fail)... Can anyone help me out?

What you want is something like in my system specs to offer you a favorable resolution to your dilemma. Multiple outputs from one device with different bus mixes available. Used with app like Sonar or Cubase, is fantastic.

Even when the only audio device was the sound card there was no sound If I troubleshoot it says the audio device is disabled even though it isn't I've checked all the audio services and they're all running I even tried enabling my onboard audio again but I still get the same problem of the audio device apparently being disabled I ran an sfc scannow and that fixed a few things but still no audio Only thing I can think of doing now is just re-installing Windows

I have a computer with a 2ghz processor and 1gb of ram. I have Windows Vista Ultimate installed on it. Every now and then I swap out the hard drive and put in a hard drive that has Windows XP Pro on it. When I do this, there are no audio sources detected and even when I try to download drivers it still does not work. It is a fairly new motherboard with an onboard soundcard. Is it possible that Windows XP is not compatible with the motherboard? How can I fix this so when I put the hard drive with Windows XP on into the computer, it detects the same audio devices that the Vista sees. I would rather not use a dual boot. Please help.

So the title states the majority of the problem, but I should probably note what is happening.
When plugging in headphones / earbuds audio plays out of the speakers and not the earbuds / headphones.

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Do you have onboard sound, or a separate sound card?

If you have onboard sound and your computer is an oem build, such as Dell/Compaq/Gateway etc. You can get your sound drivers etc from your computer manufacturers website.

If your computer is not an oem build. You can get the sound drivers from your mobo manufacturers website. You should also install the chipset(mobo) drivers as well.

If you have a separate sound card, you will need to go to your soundcard manufacturers website.

I'm not going to tell you to update your drivers because about a million people will come in here and tell you to. but heres what you can do, make sure you take out your sound card before trying the onboard sound, sometimes a soundcard messes up onboard audio even if it is disabled.

Then if you do that and the onborad audio works then you have a faulty sound card, return it and get another, if that doesn't work then email tech support. you built your own computer so every part should have a website with a "contact us" link, even if you can't find one on your motherboard or soundcard manufacturers website you can use your CPU or HD, all companies have the same information and can help you with practically anything.

Hello, my name is Conan. I have installed Windows 7(Ultimate, 64-bits) in 2009, my previous os was Windows XP(32-bit). Although I am really happy with W7 there's something which is a big turn-off. The sound, that is, it hasn't worked on W7 ever since I installed it. It's not the devices that are the problem, they all work perfectly fine when connected to my iPod. As a matter of fact, It's quite obvious what the problem is, windows doesn't detect any connected audio devices. Here are some screenshots:

I have already downloaded the latest Realtek driver, but this also didn't detect any audio devices

A:Windows doesn't detect any audio devices: no sound


Yes, Win 7 has detected an audio device. What it's not detecting is that you have speakers plugged in.

Do you have a set of speakers you can plug into the back (green) speaker jack?

Or maybe a set of headphones into the front (green) headphone jack?

If it didn't detect any devices you wouldn't see those options.

Right now you're set to output audio to "Digital Out", it's set as the default output device, plug speakers in, select "Speakers" then click on "Set Default".

I've searched through these forums and have located the proper settings to disable to stop audio ducking from occurring when loading Teamspeak, Ventrilo or Mumble. The Windows 7 menu says "Do Nothing" like in the following screenshot/post - System Sounds Auto Leveling - Disable . I've also gone into Mumble and disabled attenuation and have gone into Ventrilo and done the same. I still get the audio volume lower when any voicecomm software is active.

Any ideas? I've checked the Realtek control panel and don't see anything there that could be doing it, either. I've been in the guild wars 2 settings and don't see anything there, either. Starting to drive me a little nuts that it keeps happening even though I've told it to not.

Thank you for your help!

A:Audio Ducking in Windows 7 - disabled but still occuring


I stumbled across the solution. Posting it to a number of places as I've seen others on other boards trying to hunt this down.

I think it has to do with Realtek audio driver behavior. This worked and stopped my system from audio ducking (even when "DO NOTHING" was selected in the communications tab):

Right click on your volume control, then pick your playback devices tab. Right click on your speakers, then choose "Enhancements". In the scroll bar area, check "Loudness Equalization". My system stopped audio ducking.

Could it be the two devices are competing with each other and the driver installer gets confused? Details on the devices and the needs to use two of the same type probably would be helpful.

I have a Dell Demension 8400 desktop. I just recently installed windows 7 on it and cannot get my audio to work. When windows does its online driver search it automatically downloads a driver and installs it. Well needless to say that my sound still dosnt work. Anyone have any ideas?? I have been trying to find a solution to this problem for about 5 days, Im about to uninstall Windows 7 and go back to xp home. Dell offers drivers but for only xp. I need a driver that supports this sound card (Analog Devices ADI 198x Integrated Audio). PLEASE HELP ME!!

Greetings jdavies11 and Welcome to the Forums,

Let's first try to uninstall some problems. All of these are out dated AND exploited:
Adobe Reader 7.0 You can download the latest version Here
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 8
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 9
Java(TM) 6 Update 3
Java(TM) 6 Update 5
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 1
...please click start-->Control Panel-->Add/Remove Programs. Scroll down the list to locate the program names and click Remove for each. Reboot at any time you are prompted, otherwise reboot when finished uninstalling all of them.

With the latest version of Java, a new zero day exploit has already been discovered and is actively being used by hackers. I would not recommend at this time reinstalling even the newest version of jave.

If you must use IE for surfing at all, please use it at this time in the No addons mode (at least till Sun Micro issues their next update scheduled for July. To do that, click start-->All Programs-->Accessories-->System Tools-->Internet Explorer (No Add-ons). In Firefox, follow These Instructions to disable java. You can also install the "NoScript" Add-on" for Firefox and selectively allow/disallow scripting no matter what web page you visit.

Please download combofix from This Webpage...and read through the instructions there for running the tool.

***Important Note***
Please read through the guidance on that web page carefully and thoroughly...and install the Recovery Console. Using this tool without the Recovery Console installed is NOT RECOMMENDED.

If you have Windows Vista, you can skip the recovery console Vista it's in the System Recovery Options menu. The System Recovery Options menu is on the Windows Vista installation disc. If Windows doesn't start correctly, you can use these tools to repair startup problems.

The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot into a special recovery (repair) mode that is not otherwise available. This allows us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It's a simple procedure that will only take a few moments.

Once installed, a blue screen prompt should appear that reads as follows:

The Recovery Console was successfully installed.

When you see that screen, please continue as follows:
Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
Click Yes to allow ComboFix to continue scanning for malware.

When the tool is finished, it will produce a log file for you. Please post that log back here on your next reply. Thanks!

Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running....that may cause the scan to stall

A:No Audio Devices

Hi there, Does your PC have Integrated Sound, or do you have a robust Sound Card. If you are not sure, the integrated card is what comes standard from most large PC vendors, just your basic stuff. The robust Sound Card, refers to either a third party component such as Sound Blaster......or one you might have chosen for better sound when you purchased the PC. If you have a Driver CD that came with your PC, you may be able to reinstall it, that is if it is gone, or if you have an aftermarket sound card, it no doubt would also have it's own Drivers disk. You might try to do a "System Restore", that is if you can remember the last time your PC was working properly. But, before that, you want to make sure that your free of any nasties that might be lurking on your machine. Things you should have, and if not, get them-Here are some free, recommended Apps.: An Anti-Virus Program: AVG Anti-Virus A Firewall: ZoneAlarm Spyware/Adware/Malware/etc....: Adaware SE Spybot S & D SpywareBlaster SpywareGaurd Recommended readings: Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware from Your Computer Using Ad-Aware SE to remove Spyware & Hijackers from Your Computer Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware, Hijackers, and Malware Using SpywareGuard to protect your computer from Spyware/Hijackers There are more out there that will advance your protection, but those above, would be a really great start.

If you have a "codec" problem of any sort...the simple solution is to install an appropriate codecs package.  The original codec package installed with WMP is not adequate for all types of video files.
Using any "registry cleaner" is definitely a wrong step.
Your errors with sfc /scannow...are a source of concern, IMO.
I'm trying to understand...why you think that removing all evidence of a step forward to resolving anything.  Do you know what codecs are and why they are needed?

Hey there guys,

I have a USB-Headset and some Speakers connected to my Soundcard.
By now I have to switch the default Playback-Device whenever I wanna put on my headset or use the speakers.
Is it possible just to output the Sound on both devices simultaniously and if it is, how can I do it?
To be clear, I dont want to output the Sound from one App on one device and the Sound of another on the other device, I want ALL Sounds that use the default Playback-Device to be played on both, Speaker and Headset.

A:How do I play my audio on two different devices at once?

Plug a "Y" adapter into the speaker port and manually turn down the volume on the external speaker when you have to

So I always switch between my headset and my speakers for sound feedback on my computer so what I do is I right click on the sound symbol at the bottom right and click on quot playback devices quot now this should normally have a window that pops up with my audio devices that I can switch in between and set which one Manage pop-up? Audio won't Devices is my default sound device Now what is happening is nothing at all for a split second it shows a loading mouse cursor as if it should actually be doing a process of opening up my audio devices but nothing appears Now I tried searching my computer via the windows option and clicking on quot manage audio devices quot but when I click on it once again nothing appears This issue is quite aggravating as I have no idea what is going on and when I check my task manager I don't see any window that is currently running

I just built a new computer
Gigabyte 78LMT-usb3 motherboard
EVGA Geforce 730
Crucial Balistix 8Gb (2x4)
Fractal Design Core 1000 usb3 case (if that matters)

I did a Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit install from a disc. When I booted up and downloaded all of the drivers, my playback menu doesn't find any devices except my HDMI ports (neither of which i am using because I am using VGA and DVI)
I have downloaded the Realtek HD drivers, didn't help. I downloaded the chipset drivers again and redownloaded the audio and didn't work. I have been searching all over and can't find anyone with quite my problem.

I have a Dell XPS 1640 laptop connected to a Mitsubishi big screen HDMI to HDMI. I would like to run two audio devices from the laptop, the TV's internal speakers and an external speaker system (SoundMatters SlimStage) but I can only get one to run at a time.

The SoundMatters speaker is connected to one of the two headphone jacks and works fine. If I try to "connect" the TV speakers using the HDMI audio, it turns off the Soundmatters speaker. I thought HDMI had its own audio?

So I tried using the other headphone port to connect to one of the TV's audio-in ports (PC-DVI RCA jacks) but I get no sound from the TV. I've tried other audio-in ports with the same result. The video looks good, the volume is up and the mute is off but still no sound. Is there something I'm missing?

A:two external audio devices?

Can you use a common splitter of some kind to route the signal from a headphone jack to both sets of speakers?

You may need an adapter of some kind along the way? I know little about HDMI, but using splitters generally works well in audio situations as long as both speakers can accept the same type of connector. Might not work well if one output is supposedly very high quality audio and the other only average---they might both end up sounding average.

So i have a headset i use for gaming and it has a headphone and a mic jack, at the moment i have it set up so i can hear my xbox 360 and my computer sound at the same time with my xbox sound coming from the line in jack. When i try to use my mic however it uses my xbox sound instead i can get my mic to work if i unplug the line in jack coming from my xbox but then i cant hear my xbox.

Hello all,

I'm new to this forum and new to forums in general. I have a problem with my laptop all of a sudden. I went to you tube the other day and had no audio sound coming from my computer. Using my limited computer knowledge, I went to Control Panel then Sound and I have 3 tabs, Playback, Recording and Sounds. Playback and Recording both say "No audio devices are installed." My little speaker down in the lower right corner of the task bar has a little red circle with a white "x" in it. When I hold my mouse over the little speaker in the task bar, it says " No audio output device is installed". When I right click on the little speaker, a box pops up and the option to "Open the volume mixer" is ghosted out.

Why did this happen and what are my options?

I would like to use the Logitech Z-10 USB Speaker or the Creative SB X-Fi and the Trekstor SoundBox USB Speaker (wireless) at the same time as standard audio device, so that I don't have to switch and chose between them.

Is this possible?
Thanks in advance for your help and reply

If you are using the soundblaster, disable the Via High Definition audio (on the motherboard) in the BIOS. It will conflict and can cause no audio. Windows only allows one default audio playback device, you can't use both anyways.

A:Sounds and Audio devices

With XP, go into control panel-sounds and audio devices

on the sounds tab, make sure that you have a sound scheme selected, then test some of the WAV files.

If you're still not getting WAV sounds, then you need to open up the volume controls and make sure that WAV Audio is not muted.

The sound manager thinks there's no sound device installed because of the driver problem.
You need to re-install the sound driver, then it should be okay.

Download the sound driver from the Acer support website. For the UK, go here:

If the UK is the wrong region for you, go here and choose your country:

It's important to use the correct website for your country as the available model numbers vary in different parts of the world.

I am having a similar issue. I have a Plantronics 777 Dolby Digital 5.1 headset that uses generic windows USB Audio for the SRS modular. THe other day I decided to download the MMO Runes of Magic to see if they had changed it since I last played and after the client patched it self...about 14 times and 4 hours later my USB audio suddenly started to go heywire. If I reboot its good...for about 5 minutes then goes from little scattered to just outright horrid. I have googled, reinstalled, uninstalled, etc etc and no avail. My question is could it had been the game client? Or just timing. Thing that sucks is I love these headphones/set but if I want the 5.1 to work I need to use the USB adapter. so anyone know if its just windows being stupid or what.

Since this happened I am informed via control panel that No Audio Devices are Installed. My speaker icon in the task bar has the dreaded red X over it.

I have two different sets of speakers I have tried. Both sets of speakers work on another computer. In device manager I have attempted to update drivers, uninstall and reinstall, disable and re-enable, to no avail.

If you have newer drivers and it says you already have the best drivers loaded...then, try the newer ones. I know that WinXP does that with modem drivers and it DOES NOT have decent drivers for modems. In fact, they only support the v.90 modem drivers and not the v.92 and therefore some modems will not work with their drivers that they say are the best match. I think it would be worth a try to load the newer audio drivers that came with your card...what can you lose.
