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.

Windows 10 overrides bios settings for wake-up.

I have set in bios to wake up on ctrl-esc.
That works until I boot into windows 10.
Now when I shut down windows 10, my computer will
wake up on ANY keyboard event or mouse event.
OK so then I uncheck in windows:
power management->allow this device to wake up the computer.
Now the problem is that when windows shuts down, it turns off
the keyboard totally so it is impossible to send keystrokes.

All this time my settings in bios are:
don't power up from mouse
powerup on ctrl-esc ONLY

In windows 7 I don't have this problem, everything works
as set in bios.

My computer is not in sleep or hibernate.
Another thing to note is that when I power it up
by clicking any key ,and then power it down on the switch
next time it will only start on ctrl-esc.

(hybrid sleep is off)

Many thanks.

A:Windows 10 overrides bios settings for wake-up.

OK I figured it out.
I need to disable "fast startup".
Everything works fine now.

But if I wanted fast startup , is there a way to
choose which key wakes up the system?

Hey guys:

System was fine. Started it up this morning and all my sound was gone. I've re-installed the Asus drivers 50x. Tried the same in Safe Mode. I am using an external speaker set-up. They are Altec Lansing speakers. They have a powered sub and left and right main speakers and also left and right rear speakers. I don't have the rear speakers connected and I haven't for years(without issue).

Anyway, booted up this morning and I have no sound from Windows, the internet, or my music or movies. I'm dieing over here!!! I've read a bunch of stuff and nothing I've read works. I need some help.


A:No sound at all?? Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit

I did try a system restore... and I restored it back to 4/30. I still don't have sound?? I thought it would be that easy. But hence... nothing is that easy when it comes to computers!!!!!

Hi Guys.

I have a serious problem. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate on a new custom-built computer that I acquired. Things went well for several months and then suddenly I lost all sound.
Pictures are fine but no sound.I scanned to see whether it was the result of a virus attack, but the computer came up clean. I then tried updating the drivers but received the message that the latest drivers were already installed. I tried downloading drivers from the Mother board manufacturers but that didn't work.Lastly, I reinstalled Windows 7 but the problem remains. I also checked the forum to see if there was any information that I could use but came up empty.
My computer has a Biostar Tseries mother board with an AMD quadcore processor.

Is it a software problem or a hardware problem how can I tell? Is there a solution at all to the problem?

Please advise.

With Thanks.

A:Windows 7 Ultimate--No Sound


Couple things......I had similar issues with Windows 7.

1) Remember to use System Restore often before making any changes to your system as well as any windows updates. That way you can go back if an update messes things up without reinstalling windows 7.

2) What version of windows did your computer originially come with? Do you have the audio driver CD for that with you now? In my case Windows 7 sound would not work but I reinstalled the driver from my XP CD and that fixed it. Then the sound went away again later and I had to reinstall windows and now I am going to use system restore often and worse case I can always use the driver CD again...even though it for XP, it still worked in Windows 7 for me even while windows update failed and picked the wrong driver.

I bought a new case the Rosewell Challenger to be specific to replace my NXZT Hush, because it was falling apart, so I got the new case today and I swapped everything inside the new case but the problem is simply this it won't start up and I am unsure of what is going on, I have the P5Q Pro by asus mother board I was wondering if any one had the Challenger and knew where about everything plugs into the only thing that is different that I have not plugged in was the pin that said AC-97 I couldn't find that labeled anywhere on my motherboard, and the main on the motherboard I am uncertain if it is supposed to cover the entire pins because it seems to me it leaves 4 pins short, but it has main written on the pin box, I can't remember help would be great right about now thanks a lot.

A:Rosewell Challenger help.

The AC-97 is the audio plugin for the front panel. It should be plugged in to the audio connector usually located on the bottom of the motherboard.The Main, is probably the 24 pin power to the motherboard. Most PSU's have a 20+4 pin connector to accomidate motherboards with either a 20 pin or 24 pin connector. You motherboard manual should show what kind and where each pin is located.

Hello There,

I have been having a reoccurring problem that I just can't figure out. I watch a lot of video's on my dual screen setup and what has been happening for awhile is light static when at least two sources of audio are there. At it's worse it actually stops playing audio, when I look at the mixer it will show a non moving amount in the Device bar yet no actual sound comes out. Sometimes it will make a loud static noise and start playing again and occasionally I have to restart the pc. I have fully updated my sound card drivers and have all applicable codecs. I am at my wit's end. I will be happy to supply any needed info to figure this one out and thank you so much in advance for helping.

A:Problem with sound on Windows 7 Ultimate. Please Help!

Loud static seems most probably from connections rather than software or drivers. Double-check those and use some alcohol to clean any jacks.

A:Windows 7 Ultimate x64; no sound devices

Windows will install a generic "HD Audio Codec" if the integrated audio is detected. According to what I find this has RealTek ALC888 audio.

If there are any Intel motherboard chipset drivers, install them as one of the things the chipset drivers do is identify all the devices (if they are not identified they will not be detected). Also, check the BIOS in case the integrated audio (may be labeled as "legacy audio") is enabled. That too would prevent Windows from detecting and installing a driver.

If you can get the sound device recognized you can download the RealTek drivers can be accessed here Realtek

I've recently got a new laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate installed.

The sound setting box from Control Panel seems to open when a system sound is or would normally play.

I have run through the settings several times and managed to reduce the incidence by adding some sounds, yet nothing seems to prevent this window opening from time to time. I have yet to spot a clear pattern beyond that it always happens on start up.

If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Hello About a Ultimate 7 Sound No Windows 32bit year ago I built my cousin a computer using some spare parts I had around using an original Creative Audigy as the sound card Due to him trashing so that it had the BSOD and me not quite liking the setup I had placed on it I took the computer from him to wipe the OS and reinstall it This time however the sound doesn t work and I ve Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit No Sound tried everything I am not ignorant to computing and am of the time self sufficient so this is an expert mostly reaching out Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit No Sound to other experts as this problem has me stumped I tried installing the drivers and reinstalling them letting windows install it s default drivers to which it says it couldn t find any installing a creative compatibility pack removing Upper and Lower Filter entries in the registry bit of a last ditch standard windows troubleshooting in which it says quot An unexpected error occurred The trouble shooting wizard can t continue quot replacing the sound card with an Auzentec X-fi Prelude and installing and reinstalling its drivers checking windows update for drivers etc The two main errors I have are quot No audio output device detected quot when hovering over the speaker icon with the red X and quot Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware The driver may be corrupted or missing Code quot in the device manager with a yellow triangle flag over the device Do note that this install is a striped install using RT Se en Lite which took out things like Windows Media Player and the default drivers etc but since I realized that this could be the problem I made a new partition and installed clean unaltered Windows bit on it and the problem remains even on that install I ve run chkdsk and sfc which got to about and said it found corrupted files but couldn t fix them which might be the problem but the log didn t have anything I recognized as I haven t deciphered one of them before so I am unsure and that could just be due to the stripping that RT Se en Lite did unless the master file list that sfc uses is generated from when you install windows not just a default list Any ideas

A:Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit No Sound

EDIT:It appears I spoke too soon. I thought that the problem persisted on the clean install but I hadn't installed the drivers yet. So I installed the drivers on the clean install and the audio worked. So it seems that something I stripped out using RT Se7en Lite did break the Audio.(As a side note when I went into the clean install the "Multi-Media Audio Device" showed up with a question mark where as in the stripped install it shows up with a yellow triangle when the drivers aren't installed).So does anyone help me care to find out what critical file I removed because I put a TON of work into this and don't wont to have and reinstall, let alone figure out what part I need to recheck in RT Se7en Lite. Could sfc possibly restore the missing files?Any help is greatly appreciated.

A:XPS 17, Windows 7 Ultimate, loss of sound

Hello Jay. Test the driver by switching between the Realtek audio driver and the Windows native driver.
1. Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" and right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked.7. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio" (the native driver).8. Click "Next".9. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 10. Restart the laptop if prompted. If not prompted, then no need to restart.[To get back to the Realtek driver, do it again but reverse the names in steps 2 and 7.]If you only have the symptoms with one of the drivers, then the other is at fault. If you have the same symptoms with both audio drivers, then see the Headphone Jack FAQ, which explains a hardware problem that causes loss of audio through speakers even though audio is okay through the jack.

A:No Sound Windows Seven ultimate x64 soundblaster/onboar


Hi and welcome. I have a sound blaster around here soomewhere. Let me see if I can replicate the problem. mine 64bit win 7 ultimate, 4 gigs. take me a bit so if I dont come back PM me. Im working win 7 and vista so I dont wnat it to fall thru the cracks.

Nicely writen first post btw. I assume you have checked all the usual stuff, so completely out of left field: are you using the default win 7 sounds? Im feeling if the system sounds work and you are getting response on the green bars that the cpanel has to be installed correctly but check device manger. maybe even see if there is an older vista driver just in case.

Let me go find that sound blaster while its still light.

Hey, I'm here desperate for help. I've tried right about everything to fix my continuous sound glitches in my windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.

When I listen to music or playing anything audio-related, I get small glitches at random times, and I get even more if I do other stuff on the computer, for example chatting on msn or using my webcam. It seems like the applicationsounds are disturbing eachother in someway.

However, these problems did not occour when I used windows XP.


I've got an integrated audio device in the motherboard and a Creative Soundblaster X-Fi external soundcard.

I've tried to format the computer using the 32bit system, still the same.

I've tried to install various drivers without any succsess.

So please, if anyone know how to fix this, post your best solution!

Hi everyone,

I'm currently looking at this case for my new build. It seems like a nice cheap case for my build, but I'm worried about its size. I'm getting a GTX 570 which is 10.5 inches long and I've read a couple of reviews about people having trouble fitting shorter cards in there, but some reviews said that largers ones like the 570/580 could fit.

I'm just wondering if anyone had this case and could give me some insight on this. Currently this is the only thing stopping me from deciding on this case.

I was also looking at the Cooler Master HAF 922 which plenty of reviews say anything can fit in there, but its costs twice as much.

Thank you

How can i disable hardware install wizard so that it doesnt disable the graphics adapter PLEASE HELP!

A:Windows hardware installation manager overrides my Nvidia Geforce 9400 GT install

Follow these steps to install your new graphics card:

1. Download the latest drivers for your card. Clean all old video drivers from your system. You may use Driver Sweeper if you wish.
2. Shut your PC down and put the new GPU in the motherboard slot.
3. Start up the system and change your primary graphics adapter in BIOS to PCI-E (assuming you have a PCI-E card) or PCI / AGP.
4. After logging in to Windows just close the Hardware Installation Wizard when it comes up. Double click on the drivers you downloaded and it should be installed without any issues.

I have an Acer Aspire 4530 Notebook. And once I upgraded to 7 Ive noticed problems with the sound. I have the latest windows 7 Ultimate Drivers 64 Bit for the built in realtek card from the acer website.

This is my problem. Sound works fine. Then When I go to adjust the volume either from the bottom right icon or the dial on the front of the laptop, (Sometimes this happens its not a 100% thing which Is weird) the sound just stops. There are no error messages and or anything you just cant hear anything. And this only happens sometimes. To get it to work again I have to restart a few times or completely power it off.

Anyone have any idea what this is?

Thanks in Advance.

A:Windows 7 Ultimate SOund Problems On Acer Aspire 4530

Acer has a new BIOS version for your Notebook on thier support site, the date on the update is 11-17-09. It doesn't say anywhere that I could find just what that update was supposed to fix, so I am not sure if it would help you or not. Flashing a BIOS can be a tricky thing though, you might want to read up a bit if you have never actually done it before. You might try giving Acer support a call and see if they can give you more info on just what that BIOS update fixed before you try anything.

I have a Dell XPS M1333 Laptop that originally came with Windows Vista Home Edition. I did a wipe of the hard drive, where I then did a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate. Now that I have done a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate there is NO sound at all. Also, I did a check in Device Manager to see the audio driver did install correctly, but still have no sound. In addition, Device Manager shows the Base System Device did not install correctly. I tried doing the auto search on the internet for the driver, but no luck. Can this be the cause of my issue with NO sound? Does anyone have any suggestions? If anyone has a suggestion, please send me an email to: [email protected] Thank You!

My screensaver (a custom one) has a tendency to override some, but probably not all, fullscreen games if I don't use the keyboard or mouse for long enough, for example if I'm watching a cutscene or using some non-mouse, non-keyboard controllers (gamepads, smartphones etc.) Similarly, when I play Don Bradman Cricket '14 for an extended period of time on my gamepad, power saving kicks in and my screen turns off, despite the game running in the background. I thought that fullscreen programs overrode screensavers and power settings in this respect. This happened with Win7 as well, and I had no luck fixing the problem back then.

Is there a way to fix/workaround this issue? Of course, the obvious way is to disable the screensaver and extend the amount of time taken before power saving kicks in, but that's my last resort since I wish to do neither.

I tried to produce with both PowerProducer and windows movie maker, same thing.
Any help appreciated.

I have a set of computers that need to enable IE printing but nothing else in the file menu. I thought we could keep the entire file menu disabled and enable the print button but it forces the file menu to appear when we have it disabled.

I've tried enabling the file menu and disabling all the options given in the IE/toolbar GPO section but i still get the full menu poping up. Was trying to get it so only the print options appear. I'm using windows server 2k3.

Has anyone else experienced this or know of a work around? Thanks for the help.

I just noticed something as I am working on my new vista machine (always used XP up till now)...

when i have Google AutoFill setup in my google toolbar for IE7, my IE7 auto-complete and saved passwords no longer work! When i turn off google autofill, everything works fine!

are you kidding me? does anyone know a way around this? worked fine in XP...

A:Google Autofill overrides IE7 auto complete & saved pwds?

I just found the answer (I was having the same problem). Get rid of Google Auto fill (disable it) and use MSN's toolbar form fill. It works better as it fills in the form for you without pushing the form fill button. And yes, you can still use Auto Complete.

I upgraded from Vista to Win 7 32 bit on my HP dv9000 series laptop.At first my sound was fine.Then I was doing the updates and there was an optional update for my Conexant High-Definition Audio Driver audio. driver.I regrettably chose to do the optional and now my audio doesn't work whatsoever.In system devices it says my audio card is working, but when I go to the sound in control panel it says no audio device is installed.

I've tried going to the manufacturers website and downloading the original Software & Driver Downloads HP Pavilion dv9627cl Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English) and still the same story.I also have Driver Genius and tried the audio driver there and still no luck.

ALSO, I don't know if its related, but I have 2 base system devices not installed since the upgrade and I can't find them with Driver Genius. Does Anyone Have Any Ideas?!

Hello all, and thanks for looking.

My name is Corey, and yesterday I got my computer back from a friend who fixes computers. He put in a new Motherboard, new graphics card, an extra gig of ram (now running 2 GB of ram), a faster processor and windows vista ultimate.

My box is running like a top. But no sound. What is a computer with no sound?!?

Here are the things I know...

OS = Windows Vista Ultimate SP 1
Processor = AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3400+ 2.45 GHz
RAM = 2.00 GB
System = 64-bit OS
Graphics = NVIDIA GeForce FX 5950 Ultra
Sound, video and game controllers = Realtek AC'97 Audio for VIA (R) Audio Controller
Motherboard = Abit-KV8 Pro

Any thoughts? Thanks.

A:No Sound In Vista Ultimate - So Frustrated

Hi, my sound works fine but when i install my High Definition drivers (that came with my motherboard) it doesnt detect my speakers or microphone etc.

Now my speakers/microphone etc would only work with these drivers when i had XP.


its ALC880 series or something whatever that means
Relevancy 44.29%


Here's how...

I decided to do a full reinstall of Vista Ultimate 64-bit.
The problem was that Realtek drivers would not install (the ones from Intel for my board or the ones from Realtek themselves)

After the install I reinstalled the chipset first and rebooted, then immdiately installed the latest realtek driver, the one that was released yesterday which previously wouldn't install for me (I happened to do the build yesterday)

Then Video driver (intel integrated 3100 for now) and then LAN.

Then immidiate install of SP1.

Then everything worked like a charm.

Hope this helps someone..

Probably not. It is probably just that the driver needs to be re-installed.
How To Find Drivers:

- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

I have just reformatted my notebook to vista ultimate.

But now I have found that I have lost half of my sound volume, and when I put my outside speakers in it stops the song in media player and I have to start the song all over again for it to play through the speakers.

If I pull the speaker out of the socket while playing music no sound comes from the computer like it should do.

Please help.

Tried to install on Win 7 Ultimate my Sound Blaster Audigy2 Value and got the message "No Sound blaster

Sound blaster works great on XP Home....

A:Creative Sound Card not found in Win 7 Ultimate

Install or reinstall the Intel motherboard chipset drivers and see if that helps. On older Intel chipset systems, if the chipset drivers have not been installed, non detection of devices can happen.

Some of the older SB Audigy devices are not supported by Creative for Vista/Win7. Does Creative have a Vista/Win 7 specific driver? The XP driver is not compatible.

I just got a Toshiba Qosmio F45 AV411 with Vista ultiimate. This notebook is famous for its stereo sound, Harman Kardon speakers with subwoofer, and Dolby Home Theater audio. Unfortunately mine has very low volume for some reason even if you turn the master volume all the way up. And if I listen to music on the highest possible ( which is not high enough at all )
The sound is hoarse like when you listen to music on very cheap speakers with very high volume.

Please help, cause even though it was second hand it still was expensive.
The shop wasnt very helpfull.


A:Sound problem in Qosmio with Vista Ultimate

Please make sure that the volume on windows is all the way turned up, and there should be volume buttons on the actual unit which may work independent of the operating system so make sure they are all the way up.

Also make sure in the windows mixer the windows sounds are all the way up, and whatever program your using has the volume turned up.

I am a member since 2 months Windows 7 Ultimate x64, about 2 weeks ago, I bought sound card Asus Xonar DX PCI-E, but after continuing problems and lack of support from Asus (Asus thank you, I had to reinstall the system 3 times within 2 weeks ) Now I wonder what card to buy would not lose again.
I thought the Auzen sound card, I read the description that has drivers for Windows 7 x64, maybe someone has this card and knows how it works?

Models of sound cards:
Auzen X-Fi Prelude 7.1 - Auzentech, Inc. Sound Cards. Audio You Can Believe In. World First soundcards for Music, HTPC, and Gaming.
Auzen X-Fi Bravura - Auzen X-Fi Bravura from Auzentech, Inc. : World First soundcards for Music, HTPC, and Gaming.
Auzen X-Fi? Forte 7.1 - Auzentech, Inc. X-Fi Forte PCI-Express Soundcard : World First soundcards for Music, HTPC, and Gaming

Maybe someone have other proposition ?

I will be grateful for the help

Best regards

A:Win7 Ultimate x64 and sound cards - did something work?

If you're looking for the best sound quality, you're better off going for a HT | OMEGA, Sound Blaster or M-AUDIO card. They all have decent 7 support, but it's best to check before hand. I've heard nothing about Auzen and very little about Asus cards.

HT OMEGA Striker 7.1 PCIe Card
HT OMEGA Striker 7.1 Win7 Drivers x86/x64

Any of the Sound Blaster cards should work, some people don't like Sound Blaster but they have decent support. Just make sure the drivers are there before purchase via Creative Labs Online Store

Can one of Y'all tell me what the ThermalTake GiantII GPU cooler wont fit?? my cap on $$ is like 150USD. my shopping will start with your advice.



That is on SICK cooler's some specs that I found:

"A universal clip helps insure compatibility with both nVidia based and ATI based video cards."

(1) The video cards without the heatsink mounting holes or with components that interfere with the heatsink cannot accommodate this product. (2) The heatsink occupies an adjacent PCI slot. (3) If the components on the video card interfere in any way with the heatsink components, you cannot use this heatsink. In such a case, you should immediately stop installation and return the product. (4) This heatsink if quite large at ~4.5" wide. It will add some height to the top of the video card when installed. In some thin cases such as the Casper II this may make it impossible to reinstall the video card. Make sure your case has space above the card slots before deciding to use this cooler.

It would be nice if ThermakTake listed known cards that simply don't work with it...

And here's a decent review link going over the finer points:

Hope this helps...let us know if you get it and how it works out...

Hello,i just installed win 7 ultimate 64 bit and my notebook works well but after windows auto update,my acer 4520 cant detect sound.i tried to reinstall chipset and audio drivers from acer website but still doesn't work.Pleaseeeee HELP....

As you can see there is no sound device.PLS HELP.

A:acer 4520 sound dissappear after win 7 ultimate 64 update


As after windows update system’s sound stopped working, I would suggest you to use Windows Update again as there could be possibility that some updates might be pending or might have corrupt driver. You may need to set Windows Update to “Automatically Download” and install recommended updates. Installing any important, recommended, and optional updates can update system features and other software that might help to fix your sound problems.

If the issue still persists, then try doing System Restore back to the date when your system was working fine.

If you have multiple security programs installed, turn them all off (your driver may not install if security systems are turned on) now load your new audio driver, restart, turn the antivirus back on.

Install software from the device manufacturer. For example, if your device came with a disc, that disc might contain software that installs an audio driver for the device.

Let me know if that resolves the issue.

Its probably a driver. Since your system is so old there are only vista driver.. They can be used if installed in compatibility mode. To do that right cleick the installer>properties>compatibility>choose vista.

Go to dell with your express service tag here . Drivers & Downloads

download the correct driver (32bit or 64bit) and install.

There are a couple of other things to try...

Right click the Microsoft speaker icon in the task bar, select "Playback Devices".

"Speakers" should be the default output device, (green check mark)

Select speakers with a single left click... to buttons should become active.

Configure and Properties. Under Configure make sure you're set to stereo.

After that click on the Properties should see a config window with several several tabs. If you have the Enhancements tab selct it, check immdiate mode then "Disable All Sound Effects". Then click the advanced tab and select 16-bit - 44.1kHz (CD Quality).

Might want to reboot after all this.
