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 used to be able to listen to music through a pair of Sony bluetooth headphones on my Wins 7 laptop. However, I am no unable to do so. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the bluetooth drivers with no success, removed and added the device. I followed a number of the steps in this thread : Bluetooth headset pairs but won't connect, not avail as playback devic , specifically the post from 11th Dec 2014 . Computer has been restarted multiple times.

I've attached an image of what I see. I can connect the headphones to the laptop, but can't listen to music. I also cannot set the headphones to default playback.

Atm, I'm listening through an aux cable, but any additional trouble shooting steps would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

First, I wanted to listen to a clip on Amazon and I clicked "listen" for Windows Media Player and then another time for Real Player, since I have BOTH. All it would do was save it to my computer (entitled "hurl") and then I couldn't open it. It didn't even give the option of opening it--that was "grayed out."

Also, is there ANYwhere that I can just download a song without taking out a bank loan or giving them my firstborn? I went to Yahoo radio, too, and went through the sign-in procedure and then it wouldn't complete. The button just did nothing. I don't plan to do a lot of downloading music. I just want to get a song occasionally.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks!

What would be something to check, if you can listen to cds but not music online. Whether we open windows media player, or browse to a favorite radio station's site to listen live, we can't listen. There are no errors, it connects, buffers and looks to be playing, but there's no sound. The speakers are on and work, because we can stop and listen to a cd. I don't see any mute that is on.

Anyone have any ideas??

Thanks,

Hey guys, I am going on holiday in early June and am looking for a way to listen to music while I'm in the pool as I plan to spend a lot of time doing so.
The way I can see it is that I have two options:

Buy a waterproof case and waterproof headphones
buy a waterproof MP3 player all-in-one.
Obviously each option has it's flaws - otherwise I wouldn't be there.
Even if I buy a waterproof case how can I be sure that even though there is a waterproof case, where it contacts with waterproof earphones will be waterproof as 'waterproof' to some sellers just means rain-proof.
The problem with the all in ones like the Sony Waterproof Walkman is that they are very expensive for very little space, the 4GB alone being 50 and 8GB is 80.

Does anyone have experience in the matter, anything they can recommend, preferably I'd like to use my phone in a case for my 32GB MicroSD card, but whatever works I guess.

Cheers guys.

A:PC freezes but I can use Firefox and listen to music

Several things of note. First it is absolutely essential that you update to Service Pack 3 because come July 10th XP with Service Pack 2 will no longer be supported. You need some serious updating and it may be a central reason you are experiencing issues..

Second, before you do the above there is a very strong possibility you are still infected. Go to our Virus and Malware Removal forum and read the 8 Step sticky. Follow it step by step -- don't skip any of the steps. When you finish post on that forum with the required logs attached.

Third, since you can boot into Safe Mode there is a good chance your issue is driver related, but unless the above isn't attempted you won't be able to diagnose properly.

Fourth, as a side note, you might want to consider another gig of RAM if your motherboard is designed to do so. XP and two gigs is a good combination.

Fifth, you mention both Avira and Avast. Are both of these installed? Please tell us all the security software you have installed and running in real time protection.

Good luck.

OS Windows XP Pro. I copied music from an old computer and pasted it on the new computer for my son. As long as the flash drive is inserted, he can listen to the music. (Even though the flash drive is empty.) When the flash drive is removed and he tries to listen to the music it is prompting him to connect to the internet, and he has no internet. We took the flash drive to my house with 3 albums on it, they showed up with the same prompt to connect to the internet, even with the flash drive inserted. What might we be doing wrong? The files are "wma" files.

Thanks, Peggy

A:Can't listen to music from flash drive

Internet Explorer /Tools /Internet Options / Connections

Make sure you select 'Never dial a connection' and Apply

In Windows Media Player
select Now Playing at the top, close and open again.

Sometimes if you have clicked on Media Guide, I've found it seems
to stick there, (until you select as above) and tries to open the Internet.

But the new computer should not be accessing the flash drive if the music
has been copied over. Clicking on any WMA file (standard windows media file)
should open Windows Media Player.

In the Player open Tools / Options / File Types and put a tick in each box.

Just trying the obvious for the moment.

I bought an i& desktop with BT keyboard & mouse. I've recently begun to lose connectivity with the keyboard.

I also upgraded to a Samsung SSD and I mention that as it is the reason I removed a lot of bloatware. Long story short, I call Sony and they cant help naturally except to send a new keyboard. The instrucitons tell me to use a file on C named wconnect.exe to enable pairing of the new keyboard.

And it's one of the files I cleaned out and Sony cant help except to tell me to do a factory restore to get it. I dont have the three days it would take.

Can anyone make any suggestions that would help ? Thanks.

I've searched here and Google but haven't found the answer. I bought a bluetooth audio receiver to stream music to my stereo receiver and speakers. The device connected to the computer (Windows 8.1) perfectly. Appears as connected to the computer. But music played on the PC doesn't get to the stereo speakers. I can connect the device to my android phone and play music through the stereo speakers perfectly.

In Windows Volume Control, the BT device appears and is selected. When I try to play music through my receiver, I can hear music coming from my PC speakers (barely) but nothing through the stereo. What am I missing?

How are you connecting the device to the PC? Via the headphone jack? GREEN speaker jack on the rear? Since it works with a phone I assume its being connected via an analog audio jack?

I recently purchased a Sony SRS-X11 Bluetooth speaker (recommended by Which Magazine).
I have not been able to find a Windows driver to connect this speaker to my operating system. Can any one help or have any suggestions.

I have purchased a Bluetooth dongle which appears to be working fine: the system recognises the speaker through the dongle but when I run the set up, the system says it is looking for software updates to complete the process but that is as far as it goes because I get an error message informing me that software can not be found. I have also contacted Sony and they can't help and told me to search online for a Windows driver.

A:Driver needed to run Sony Bluetooth speaker

The bluetooth "dongle" market is a very complicated one and is full of a lot of low quality products which are often not supported, you could, ( if you can discover the information because your hardware is from a major manufacturer ), try contacting the dongle manufacturer, but these are often small 3rd world or far east companies, that appear and disappear overnight. The additional software the dongle is looking for could easily be something from a long gone affiliate of the hardware manufacturer, as it was normal for these devices to use free libraries of functions, which are no longer available.

there is a company called BlueSoleil, the most easy-to-use, innovative and interoperable Bluetooth software, Bluetooth driver which is a major player in the blue tooth market (though not a driver only source) which my support your dongle though this may mean additional costs. best way would IMHO the return the dongle and purchase something from one of the major suppliers

Edit

The following is a list of the main chipset manufacturers for Bluetooth - if you can find out the name of the Chip in your device you may be able to obtain drivers direct from one of these companies although some do not deal direct with the public it may be worth a try ( search for the company support site as the links are email addresses of sales contacts)

At the moment I'm looking after a Sony VAIO VGN-SZ GN with Windows Vista Business -bit preinstalled and am looking to in-place upgrade this to Windows Professional -bit Currently the machine has the Toshiba Bluetooth stack installed and Windows Upgrade Advisor says that Bluetooth Sony on Toshiba VAIO VGN-SZ48GN for some Bluetooth components it doesn't know if there is an update for Windows and for others that there is a quot free quot update available from the manufacturer quot Toshiba quot However I know that updates from Toshiba Toshiba Bluetooth on Sony VAIO VGN-SZ48GN are free only for Toshiba laptops and Sony has no sight of a Windows driver anywhere I think based on the Toshiba Bluetooth on Sony VAIO VGN-SZ48GN Windows Upgrade Advisor that I have version of the Toshiba Bluetooth stack currently installed Does anyone have any experience upgrading these VAIO machines to Windows Will Bluetooth work seamlessly after an upgrade or is there more to it Bluetooth is the only reason that I'm wary of upgrading to Windows otherwise the upgrade advisor gives a completely clean bill of health Any thoughts based on real experience appreciated Thanks

In a reload of the whole system, the instalation for my Sony bluetooth mouse was wiped out, and, of course, I need to reload the mouse's software. The problem is that I lost the software that came with my Sony Bluetooth Mouse VGP-BMS33, and I can not get it from Sony; they just do not sell it or provide it. Are there any other sources to get the software?

Hi,

I have recently installed Windows 8.1 and today I tried to connect my phone (Nexus 4) via Bluetooth. The phone did get connected without any issues but didn't give any option for playing music as it did in Windows 7. A Bluetooth audio control would pop up in Windows 7 but that didn't happen. My phone plays music via Bluetooth and is working fine, I use it everyday in my car.

Please suggest what needs to be done in order to get this rectified. Do I need a separate software?

A:sony vaio's built in bluetooth not working with windows 7

Hello roxiedg and welcome to Seven Forums.

Before trying to add a bluetooth device in windows 7 there are a couple of things you need to do.

- Make sure that wireless is enabled on the laptop (my Sony has a switch on the front). Bluetooth is wireless and, typically, when that switch is turned off, all wireless is turned off as well including 802.11a/b/g/n and also Bluetooth.
- Make sure that any proprietary software you have that controls power or wireless function has Bluetooth enabled.
- You may also need to update the bluetooth driver for whatever device you're trying to install. I'd suggest the device manufacturer's web site.

sugestions for good recording software is welcome also

A:'listen' to mic, but still have it muted

The problem is most likely a monitor setting in VD. When I was first recording some albums off a turntable using Audacity, I kept getting an echo through the speakers. The USB turntable would normally play the sound through the speakers fine until I tried to record it. Turns out, Audacity has a setting to turn monitor-sound on or off. I turned it off and all worked great. You might check VD for a similar setting.

Hi,

Older sound cards had two sets of input output controls. One for input and one for recording. You were able to turn on the mic and speakers at the same time. Wasn't very useful as you always got feedback. Don't know about your sound card but have a look. Maybe you won't have the feedback if you can get the mic far enough away.

Good Luck, jim

hi there

I think it is time that the computer should be able to PERFECTLY understand the human through speech and respond back to him, like in movies (iron man even flubber ).
I used the speech recognition software in vista but it still needs loads of improvement.

So i was wondering if any of you know about any software which helps in doing this, or atleast something that can make the PC have cool conversations with you and read texts with you (i know about narrator, very robotic).

Eagerly waiting for any discussions regarding this.

Compuwhiz93

A:PC able to talk and listen

Although great improvements have been made with speech recognition, home computers currently don't have the capacity to comprehend fully spoken language. For a start off, words can have a slightly different meaning depending on how it is pronounced, and the context in which it is used. In addition, the human brain can recognise the same word when pronounced in many different ways by people with differing accents and dialogue inflections. Unless the speech recognition system in a computer has already learnt the word, and the ways that it may be pronounced, it cannot understand a word if asked to recognise it through audio input. Even if it does know the word, it might not recognise it if it comes in a different accent and inflection.

As regards the computer outputting speech, it is currently very robotic because the number of voices available is very limited. Although the pitch and speed can be varied, this usually affects all of what is being output by the same amount, unlike normal human speech which can change in pitch and speed dynamically. Whilst certain punctuation can make the pitch of the word prior to it rise or fall, the end result is still very much robotic.

Unfortunately, home computers simply don't have the memory capacity or resources in order to be able to speak and to understand speech in the same way as a human brain can. Mainframe computers fair better because they have more memory and resources available, in addition to more processing power thanks to them supporting multiple CPUs (realistic speech comprehension and reproduction is CPU-intensive).

I can't listen to Spotify through headphones (or my external speakers). My win 7 laptop plays it only from through computer's own internal speakers. I've tried everything you can possibly imagine, but still the music comes out from wrong place. Skype on the other hand works with the headphones. Can anyone help me, please... I'm quite desperate

A:How to listen Spotify with headphones?

Welcome!

In Control Panel>Sound, make sure your headphones are set as the default device. Click on them and select Default Device at the bottom.

Good luck!

I am running Windows Vista Ultimate SP1. Everytime i try to listen to radio on-line (i have tried several sites with no luck!) It will not start streaming. What happens is this......
i click on the link to open the streaming radio (in this case. http://www.929.com.au/player) what happens is, in the status bar of the player it says 'connecting to media' for about 30 seconds, then the status bar goes back to 'Ready'.

I am running McAfee Security center as my virus protection and firewall, could this be the problem?? Help!!

Hi Guys, i build an 5 channels amp and i have 5 speakers, i have an SoundCard with 5 channels Output, i found that if the song is just 2 channels the output will be to the Front Speakers, is possible to send the output to the Front and Rear Speakers?

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Is possible to Listen Stereo from 4 Speakers?

as long as you have front,rear inputs for your
amp that you built & front,rear ouputs,then yes
you can.

plug another jack (3.5 mm mini jack/RCA) from your sound card's
rear output to the rear input of the amp then you're ready to go.

& dont forget,the rear speakers connected to the rear output
channel of your amp.

Hi guys. I have a problem that is really bugging me.

I think I blocked the streaming accidentally a few weeks ago : I clicked on 'Listen Live' on a radio station, and a warning popped up, and I think I made a mistake by clicking on 'block' or whatever instead of allowing the sound streaming through.

However even though I have uninstalled Norton now, I still can't get any sound. I'd really appreciate any help.

Is it something else that is blocking the sound (Windows Firewall perhaps?) and if so how can I resolve this problem? My operating platform is Windows XP. I have Realplayer.

You can't. Unless your station has a website and they offer web listening.

I am trying to set up a listen server for COD UO. I am only trying to set it up for two people. (me and another individual) The other individual has my server populate on his screen via my ip, but when he tries to join, it just says "awaiting connection" and never connects. We both more than meet the system requirements and have high speed cable. I have have turned off windows firewall when attempting this, but still nothing. I have e-mail the folks at activision, and they are yet to reply. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I don't have the ability to install the Audible . com program on my computer at work (admin), and I'd like to listen to my books on this computer, what do I have to do to be able to listen to my books on this computer?

A:HOw to listen to my Audible.com on another computer

I don't use the computer version of Audible, I listen off my iPhone.  That said, I believe there are options to convert to MP3 or burn to disk.
 
It looks like you can stream your books.
 
Go to Audible and scroll to the bottom of the page.
Select the Listening Apps link, second column top link.
Scroll to the bottom and select Audible Cloud Player Go To Library link.
Click the Play link under the icon of the book you want to listen.
 
You will have to have Silverlight installed.
 
If that doesn't work on your home machine Install Audible Manager from the Listening Apps page and convert them to MP3.

I installed XP on an old laptop because win7 has latency issues with audio. This laptop is a dell and has the IDT hd audio drivers installed. Normally i would click on the speaker in the bottom right and go over to line in or mic and unmute it, that would allow me to be able to listen to the line. BUT i dont have any options for "listen" or "mute/unmute" I can still record but i can't hear what is being recorded. Under settings and recording devices the option for advanced settings is grayed out. My goal is to be able to record music with this laptop. But all the conventional methods have not been working. Is there possible a third party program that will allow me to hear my mic in real time (similar to karaoke) or some other IDT utiliy that would give me the desired options?
Anybody have any ideas?

A:Listen to microphone line.

Hi snowman and welcome to PCHF.

After you have installed Windows XP did you go to the Dell site and get the proper drives for the system. You will need to install them in the proper order starting with the chipset.

Hi Folks This is my first post Perhaps YouTube Cannot Listen to/Watch I should be posting in the quot Cannot Listen to/Watch YouTube Drivers quot forum instead if so please move it Cannot Listen to/Watch YouTube Moderator My problem seems to only pertain to YouTube videos Either they play with no sound or else they don t play at all When they don t play at all I get an error saying You need to Cannot Listen to/Watch YouTube upgrade your Adobe Flash Player to watch this video Download it from Adobe Click here But when I click to download it I get another error saying Flash Player is not currently available for your -bit web browser Whenever the YouTube videos do play I have no sound I know it s not a hardware problem since the sound is fine when watching any other internet videos such as news website videos tutorial videos from Crutchfield Electronics etc The problem only seems to occur with YouTube Any suggestions I suspect it is a driver issue or Adobe Flash issue BTW I have Dell Inspiron desktop with Windows Home Premium -bit version Thank you for any advice

A:Cannot Listen to/Watch YouTube

It sounds like you are using Internet Explorer 64 bit. Try using the 32 bit version instead and you should be able to install Flash fine.

(64-bit Windows comes pre-loaded with both versions).

Hello all,
I am using ASIO4ALL with Traktor 3 so that I am able to get 2 channels out of my soundcard.
What I mean is that I am using one channel for the speakers and another channel for my headphones.
I need the headphones so as to listen to the "Cue" Deck.

I have connected my speaker system to my soundcard with one cable.
But I had figured out (when I used XP) that I was able to have what I want when the settings were 5.1 speaker system at realtek settings.

Now I cannot listen to anything from Traktor 3 when using ASIO4ALL.
What can I do?
Thank you for your time.

A:ASIO4ALL and Traktor 3 / Cannot listen anything

This is mystery to me as well. I tried using ASIO4ALL with FL Studio 8/9 but couldn't get any sound at all...

see the attached pic

radio sure - just type a station, call letter, style, state and it will search.
screamer - same thing. radio sure is better
spider player - you have to know the artist or song to search.


ALL will record right to HDD as an MP3

( however, any station I want is not allowed due to the station being blocked )
