Preferred Solution: Can i connect HP550 with good quality audio system?

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.)

I can't see any problem with connecting your laptop to a good sound system.I would connect a mini mp3 player and expect it to work.The same principle as dropping an ipod into a docking station

ok this problem has been plaging me for years. I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro U400 windows 8.1.

The sound quality is awful.
As far as I can remember is it bad in windows 7.

Contextant driver is bad and so is windows 8.1 generic driver.

please help

A:Satellite Pro U400 - audio quality not good

To be honest, I have no idea what you mean exactly by ?quality is awful?.
I owned an Satellite U400 notebook is the past and I have to say that the sound quality was good enough.

The Satellite U400 is a small 13.3? notebook and the speakers were fitted to the notebook dimensions.
The Conexant sound chip is part of the motherboard and you will not be able to replace it.

If you want to use another sound card, you can try to use an external USB audio interface.
I use such external sound solution for my home recording studio.

The audio interface is connected to notebook?s USB port and the external speakers are commenced to the external audio interface.

By the way: Satellite U400 isn't is the list of Win 8.1 supported notebooks... so you will not find any Win 8.1 drivers for this unit on Toshiba driver website.

I been trying to fix my computer. It freezes on system protection.

Any Ideas?

Thank you

But away one of the solutions was to try to rebuilt the Repository file. I did. I turned off the windows management instrumentation, Rename Repository to repository.old
then turned it back. Respository was created back. Can I erase repository.old, or should i leave it there.
I have two files there:  Repository.old  and repository
But away that did not fix the problem.

I am very new at audio, been looking around online and it seems like the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 are well regarded. The other option seems to be a Polk Audio PSW10 sub paired with their Monitor 30 II bookself speakers. Thoughts?

A:Good audio for my new system

Why are those your only options? Seems to me you'd want to take advantage of your new setup... go big son, get a 5.1 setup.

The Klipsch HD Home Theater series are very nice speakers. I have the 500's. The sub, at only 8" isn't the greatest in the world, but for audio newbies like me it's more than enough.

While Polk Audio makes great stuff, not everything they make is great. I have a 5.1 Polk setup in the guest bedroom (with a Yamaha htr-5063) ... meh... it's ok, but nothing like the main room... so don't think just a name will give you quality.

I recently installed Halo:Combat Evolved and Doom 3 on my computer which I thought was pretty good and would run games really well. Unfortunately, I have to run Doom 3 on 640 resolution and Halo on 800, disabling high quality textures and shadowing, etc. Even then they are still really choppy. I have a P4 2.8 Ghz, Windows xp pro, 512 RAM, 800 Mhz FSB, GeForce FX 5600 128 Mb video card, and plenty of hard drive space.

I have binned my the subwoofer was playing up I have purchased a pair of Logitech Z- I kid you not the sound quality through WMP is unreal The problem i have is when i initially first set up i only connected the green cable from the subwoofer to the green jack on my soundcard I went to the soundcard settings and set all the settings to do with base to max I played 'Ludicris - Yeah' from WMP and the room shook only on no Sound with 'Line-In' so good quality half volume The quality was unreal I then decided to try the speakers out Sound quality no so good with 'Line-In' with VDJ while doing a mix I connected the RMX Splitter into the back of 'Line in' on my soundcard I went to the settings of my soundcard and changed the volume to quot Line-In quot I opened up VDJ and played the same song I notice it wasn't so clear and wasn't half as basey I then disconnected all cables from my soundcard and linked them together with a female RCA cable Below So now my RMX and speakers are 'looped' and my RMX is acting as the soundcard There are no cables in my soundcard The sound was terrible i played around with a few settings but its not changed any thing Can anyone suggest why or how to fix this so the sound quality would be as good as it was when only the subwoofer's green cable was plugged into the soundcard and i was playing from WMP Thanks Dan

Can anyone recommend a solution, regardless how large the destination file will be (but certainly not as large as the .vob). many thanks in advance for your kind assistance.

hello all,
im having some trouble with seeing good quality videos on my SAMSUNG 34" HD LCD TV which i use as my monitor for my pc. I used this same TV as a monitor for my same PC and it worked fine, videos were good quality but this was when i had Windows Vista on it, recently i have taken Vista off and replaced it with Windows XP as i think it runs better but now i cant watch any videos on any media players in good quality like before.

I was wondering if it maybe that when i restored my PC with XP i have reset some settings or something? What settings if so?

Is there any codecs for XP that make the quality of videos much better?

Can anyone help me? i been looking on the net for answers for a while now.

Make sure you have all the up-to-date codecs for the videos you are trying to play, and that in XP you have the correct output resolution for your monitor.

Isn't wav the best? Even listening to music through the stations on Audials is much better than listening to my wav recorded files?
Also, re-coding mp3 files to wma lossless recorded off of Audials is much better quality than my CD collection recorded to wav.

Hi John,
took a long time to reply to this post(in my eyes)
this will open a can of worms i feel far too subjective,but here goes 
1 far too many variables
2 depends on a good source
3 software and hardware(audio cards etc)
4 Your ability to process the noise (comp,hi fi ,bit rate, sample rate and your ears)
Right let's see if I can now work through these.
1 Not much I can do here(let's hope 2,3 and 4 help)
2a A good source is vital (although there are plenty of audio editors to help) it's very hard to improve on an original,so the best thing to do is make sure you have the best source.

i have Intel Core 2 4500 CPU. Socket type is LGA775. Have 4 gb DDR 2 (4 sticks 1 gb each). I need a no-frill NON-overclocking simple motherboard for it. Right now I have gigabyte P-35 DS3L but the bios support is no good. I cannot use a USB keyboard to power on the computer. I don't want overclocking feature at all - just a solid mobo with a really good and working bios and preferrably a micro-atx.

I'd probably look to the Intel brand in that situation.

Here's a link to a bunch of micro ATX Intel Socket 775 boards at New Egg: - Computer Hardware,Motherboards,Intel Motherboards,Intel,LGA 775,Micro ATX

BIOS support going forward could be tricky because socket 775 is on the way out. You'd have to dig into BIOS features to see if they support USB keyboard power on.

I had a socket 775 Intel board for 4 years that had no issues at all, but I can't recall if it had that feature.

A:How to ensure that i have picked a perfect photo paper for good quality printing?

whats the printer
what size paper are you planning to use

whats the source ?

i have tried using papers designed by the same manufacturer as the printer
and then tried out other papers and compared each to decide on a paper

I had a canon printer and found the pro paper to give best results
but now moved on to using a dysub printer , and so do not have a choice of paper and ribbon

Hi, I usually print photos from my own printer but the quality of the photo is not satisfactory. can someone help me by telling how to choose the perfect photo paper for good quality printing.

A:How to ensure that i have picked a perfect photo paper for good quality printing?

I have closed your other post as the qustions will overlap and we will not see all the answers, which can get confusing

to discuss the printer change - first we would need to know the current printer you have - the source of the images you use and print and then the budget you have to spend

The quality and size of the image is important , what setting are you using for printing DPI/PPI

Is the image size sufficient to print out the size you want ?

i would start with the paper designed for the printer
then you will need to make sure the colour profiles are correct for the printer on the PC
depending on what editing program you use, most will allow you to set the correct colour and printer profile
an ICC file

what program are using to print from
whats the make and exact model of the printer

often the screen will not match the print out , and again some programs have a gamma setting to setup the monitor , you can get screen calibration devices - but , you should be able to get acceptable results without that

but the quality of the photo is not satisfactoryClick to expand...

can you explain why

Then once you get good results with the printer manufacturers photo printer - then you can try other makes and see how they work
also the inks need to be fresh , if they are very old that can cause a cast

and of course the printer itself needs to be a reasonable quality for photo printing

you will see quite a few posts here about printing quality images

Hi everyone.
Just after a bit of advice really !
I just got my first MP3 player (well, 2nd, but 1st was my mobile phone and only held 15 tracks )
I have ripped lots of my cds to MP3 format, WMA format (both 128kbps and variable-40-75 kbps) and maybe its just my ageing hearing, but although i can notice a very slight difference in quality between the first 2, i can not hear any difference between the 2 WMA bit rates.
Just wondering why this would be as a track at 128 is 4529 KB and at 40-75 is only 2800 KB.
Your thiughts would be most welcome !!

Your system is not compatible for Windows 7 since there is no audio drivers for Windows 7. If the system is compatible with Windows Vista or XP I recommend sticking with that.

I know absolutely nothing about Audio. I know that my speaker set up has a subwoofer. That it connects to the back of my computer through a black, green and orange 3-way spliced cable. I know I took the computer apart to move it to a new case and that's when it started. I use the on board sound card to an ASUS A8N32 SLI board with the proper sound driver.

The assistance feature for the less informed, like myself, says there's something wrong with my green cable. There doesn't seem to be any tears or weak connections.

As for the problem itself. Sound is mildly distorted. There's severe bass tones? where there shouldn't be. Half of the sounds from 3d games like Oblivion, do not register.

A:Poor quality Audio

You should have a Realtek Aux console. Start/Programs/Realtek===> some drop down menu. In there you can set-up your speakers for 2.1, 3.1, 5.1 etc. also there should be a graphics equalizer where you can set base or there can be a tab just for setting how much sub-woofer (volume and cross-over frequency) I set my cross-over at 60Hz.

You need to tell it how many speakers you have, then set your sub-woofer and you should be ok.

I'm on an HP laptop. I've noticed a problem where my speakers constantly sound like they're not pushing out what they are truly capable of. They sound slightly muffled and guitars don't come through as loud as they should. What I've noticed is that everything sounds great through headphones, but there is also a strange thing I should mention.

Let's say I'm listening to Led Zeppelin... The sound is muffled and what not but if I go into the "My Music" folder and then double click the "Alter Bridge" folder that holds the song I'm listening to (normally in a subfolder, the album), the audio clears up and sounds awesome. But I have to do this for every song (or audio clip) I listen to. Any help?

This happens regardless of what player I use to view them (You Tube, iTunes, Media Player). If I play a professional video in You Tube it is OK.

All other types of video are fine and all other sound output is fine.

If I transfer the same video to my HTC phone the sound quality is normal.

during the last weeks the audio quality output of my Inspiron 660 has got worse.
Either when I use the headphones or a speaker, both front panel or rear panel connected, it happens that the sound distorts, or switch mono to stereo and vice-versa, or it happens also that the volume go up and down or that. That  happens  with any kind of source (radio, youtube, audiofiles, spotify,...) and if I listen to the same source with my tablet or smartphone, sound is ok.
Drivers are updated.
I'm not an expert of pc stuffs, I'm just thinking to buy a new sound card.

If you have WavesMaxx make sure that is not the problem. It only works with the Realtek driver, not the native, so try disabling its settings.
Or you could try a driver directly from Realtek.
1.Go to the Realtek downloads selection page. On the page click on "High Definition Audio Codecs".3. Check "I accept" and then "next".4. (optional) In the column named "Description" find the file named README and download it. That has the instructions for installing or updating.5. In the column named "Description" select your operating system and whether it is 32bits or 64bits from the top 2 choices in the list.6. In the column named "Download" click on one of the server names to download the driver.

A:Poor audio quality - Is it the sound card?

You probably can't go wrong with the Audigy cards or any of the middle to top end Sound Blasters. The cheaper SB's give distortions- that you may be experieincing- on some mother boards. I have a little machine in the bed room with one in there and the voices sound like robots many times.

Check out Turtle Beach. They have good cards for a little money and the sound control software is pretty cool. They usually ship with mixers and custom stuff in the software bundle. I have a old Quadzilla 2 in the game machine here and it's still kicking. This one doesn't do surround sound from the CD player but the new ones do. My neighbors can hear Godsmack from across the street when I wind this one up.

Bottom line. Stay with the well known sound guys and you should do ok without having to hire a research team to compare products. Be willing to drop a couple hundred geeta on a card and you'll be in business.

Don't forget to have good speakers.

Hello. Hoping someone can help me. Since upgrading my Windows 7 to Windows 10, I've had audio problems. At first the audio quality was terrible (hissing, crackling) so I uninstalled and reinstalled my NVIDIA drivers. This fixed the problem but now I find that the audio quality gets worse over time. Once I reboot it goes back to pristine quality and that lasts a day or two but slowly the quality gets worse with more crackling. It's very annoying.

A:The audio quality I need for video and game playback.

That's very dificult to say, it depends on to many factors. From how sensitive your ears are to how detailed sound in games is. It could be different in different games. Best thing is to keep lowering until it's unsatisfactory for you. I don't think it matters a lot to game's performance, if that's what concerns you. Those settings for sound are all "up to", if something is recorded in low format, no settings in reproduction are going to make it better.

It's an Asus X501A with Pentium 2020M Ivy Bridge and Intel HD Graphics.

I tried changing the output resolution, to tweak the audio properties, etc.

No success.

Any idea?


A:HDMI on TV no audio, poor quality image

Video and sound are separate, although both should be in the HDMI signal - IF THE PC Supports this.

When you plug in the HDMI cable most system will change the default audio playback device to HDMI. However, it sounds like yours is not doing this. With the HDMI cable plugged in, go to the Sound Panel, Playback section. the HDMI should be set as the default Playback device.

If you still cannot get HDMI audio, contact ASUS, since this is a new PC (or the place where you purchased it).

About one week ago from today's date my computer automatically updated from W 10 Upgrade Terrible Windows / Sound Quality - Audio to Windows 10 Upgrade / Audio Sound - Terrible Quality W and since Windows 10 Upgrade / Audio Sound - Terrible Quality then the audio speaker sound quality has noticeable nbsp dissipated nbsp Previously I enjoyed a listening to music with a stereo sound quality and since the update the sound quality mimics a transistor radio AM nbsp I have went into the device manager scanned for hardware updates uninstalled and reinstalled the driver changed the sample rate and bit depeth within the Playback devices tab reached out to MS for answers nbsp Unfortunately nothing is working and I believe the solution is to update the sound card from the Manufacturer nbsp I have input my model type in the HP support and driver download section but I do not know which specific software to choose nbsp Also I have referred to my HP assistant icon and it tells me everything is update to date for my device nbsp Hopefully someone out there with experience can give me the proper directions to solve the issue I have searched the HP support forum and I see there are others who have had a similar experience nbsp Thank you in advance nbsp JS nbsp

A:Audio quality and volume decreased after OS clean install.

I'm not too sure, but when I uninstalled every single audio drivers and let the Windows install the drivers automatically, it showed 2 Speakers icon in the playback pane. When I tried testing both devices, I felt like if those 2 work at the same time, sound could sound the same as before. Anyone have an idea how to pull this off?

This has been a problem for me for a few months now, but it's just getting unbearable.
So, here's the situation:Oftentimes, my headphones give out muffled audio. It makes it virtually impossible to make out human speech, and just generally isn't very good. In the past, I could fix this by adjusting the headphone jack somewhat, but over time I've had to do it more violently and I'm concerned at this point that I'll harm the computer if I continue doing it. Now, whenever it happens, I have to wiggle the jack around with a decent amount of force to get it to work properly.
I'm not particularly good with computer hardware, so I'm not entirely sure what the exact issue could be. If you need any more information, just ask. I'd be happy to provide it. Any help is appreciated.

A:Audio jack giving out muffled, bad quality sound

Nevermind. I just hooked up a pair of speakers with audio ports of their own into the back, and it works pretty well.

i've run out of space in my pc and flash drives to store anymore files so im using my mp3 player. question is, will storing tehm in it lower the sound quality when i move the audio files back on my pc?

A:Can storing audio files on a mp3 player lower the sound quality?

If the files are simply copied across without any conversion, then no, you won't lose any quality.

If the files are converted to a lower quality format when they are transferred to the mp3 player, eg .wav files to .mp3, or high bitrate mp3 to lower bitrate, then the sound quality will be lower, and cannot be recovered from the converted files if the higher quality originals are deleted.

Hi guys For some reason my Windows is only offering two types of Default Format only low Format Windows settings! audio 7 offering quality Default for my Windows 7 only offering low quality Default Format audio settings! USB Audio Device driver Telephone quality and Tape Recorder quality Obviously both of these are shockingly bad The thing that makes it worse is that I have just brought a brand new USB Desktop Microphone Logitech USB Desktop Microphone and windows is only offering the same settings as my old Webcam Microphone And it sounds just as bad There is one thing I am confused about though In this video Logitech USB Desktop Microphone working on Windows bit - Windows 7 only offering low quality Default Format audio settings! YouTube The guy is using Windows -bit same as me BUT he has the option to increase the audio quality to DVD quality It's the same exact Microphone same windows and appears to be the same driver I'm running Windows Ultimate -bit so it should include all of the drivers yes Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong Logitech doesn't offer any drivers and the guy in the video mysteriously has the same driver but has more options than me The microphone is just as useless with loud echos and the like as my old Webcam Microphone Thanks for your answers

A:Windows 7 only offering low quality Default Format audio settings!

I couldn't find anything particular on other than one guy complaining about the quality of the playback sound. His post was in 2008 and nobody replied.

Standard trick to reset a driver is: go into Device Manger. Find the device. Right click on it and choose Remove. Reboot. When Windows comes up again it will reinstall the driver. It works a high percentage of the time. But there's no guarantee.

Might be a good idea to make a Restore Point first if you use them. Just to make sure you don't lose ground.

Hello, I'm new to this forum, and as such I have no clue where to post this, so, as I'm using vista, I figured I might as well post it here. Mods, please move this to the appropriate forum.

So, I'm using audacity, and recording the audio playing through my computer. Essentially, I'm recording what's coming through my speakers. The sound itself is crisp and clear. Upon playback of the recording, the dialogue is very hollow, and if there's music, the notes have a lot of static with them.
I have tested several things, including changing my Sterio Mix volume and quality. It's currently set at 16 bit 44100Hz. I have tried increasing the Hz, but that actually reduced the quality.

To sum it up, the original output is excellent, but the recording is low quality. Could anyone help with this? Thanks.

A:[SOLVED] Recording audio on computer, poor quality playback.

Wait. Why are you recording your speakers?

been trying to play my guitar thru the line-in input on my M-audio revolution and I get really bad latency, like loads. enough to make it impossible to play accurately.

Also when I try to record using a Mic in front of an amp, or from the line out socket on a guitar amp into the line-in socket on the card, i have to turn the input level on the card right right down to avoid clipping, and then it sounds rubbish.

Any help would be appreciated as i desperately need to record some guitar tracks for a project im doing.

The audio for all media through the speakers will become muffled every few seconds, then revert back to normal quality only to become muffled again. This happens only with the speakers, though, as headphones seem to work fine.

A:Audio on inspiron 13 7000 windows 10 fades in and out, with a muffled quality

 I think I found a fix!

Right click on the speaker icon on the lower right part of your screen (sorry, can't remember the English name for that) and choose "Playback Devices", so you'll get to the Sound menu. Click on the Communications tab. There you'll find a set of options to "When windows detects communication activity:"
Choose "Do nothing".

This solved for me, hope it helps you guys too. Sorry about my English, I am not a native speaker.

What is going wrong after soundtrack or music has been added and the clip saved? Frequently music playback in the files converted from a number of formats ( obv. to wmv) is dodgy, choppy or simply not capable of being listened to. Obviously I am at fault. What is being done incorrectly> Windows 7 ultimate 32 bit (warranted no emoticons) Thanks JR

[QUOTE=rosjon60;2043464] Frequently music playback in the files converted from a number of formats ( obv. to wmv) is dodgy, choppy or simply not capable of being listened to.

If they are converted from some other format, it could be the program that is converting them. But, was the audio OK in the other formats?

Could it be your battery? When was it last replaced... or if rechargeable, is it over two years old?
