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 have four computers that are connected at any given time to the home network. I believe have two issues here.

The first, all of the computers connect and surf the Internet at very slow speeds. Sometimes it seems like I'm back on Dial-up. My MacBook (which is my main computer I work from) connects to the Internet with an Ethernet cable directly into the DSL box. Even if I turn the other three computers off in the office I still run slow on the Internet. Any thoughts on how to improve this? My DSL provider says its an issue with our setup. Great thanks for the help!

Second, my Mac overall seems to be running very slow. I have over 14GB of available space so I would not think that the computer is in overload.

Any support would be greatly appreciated.

A:Moving at turtle speed - Internal Network issue or DSL issue?

If you have more than one computer, and all exhibit the same symptoms, it's hard to believe they're all bad.
Pick one that doesn't exhibit any other issues and do this:

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

I waited until the last minute (literally) to upgrade from Win7 to Win10. During the wait I kept up with all the Win10 HP blogs. My HP all-in-1 printer works great thanks to the support blog but I am still having difficulty getting my BOSE speakers to sound as they did with Beats on Win 7. I have downloaded and installed the compatible IDT HiDef Audio CODEC driver but the sound quality is still poor. The "Speakers/Headphones" property sound setting is "24-bit, 48000 Hz (Studio Quality)". I would like to adjust the treble/bass settings as before - I want my BOSE speakers back!! Any recent recommendations?Thanx!!

My friend is having a problem with Canon 600 printer. It will only print color and not black. We've just replaced a new cartridge of black and it is still not printing in black. We want it to print all colors. Before replacing a new cartridge the old one was dried up. What could be the problem? Could the cartridge be damaged or the print nozzles may be clogged? What should I do?

Well I just found this forum today, so I decided to ask this question.

About a year ago, I had to system restore, because my computer just kept FSODing on me. When I went through the system restore process with Dell, at the end of the process I got an error. I don't quite remember what it was, as it was so long ago.

Ever since then, my computer has been completely without sound. I have tried everything from installing/reinstalling/uninstalling drivers, to the most simplistic, such as checking if my speakers work, or are connected.

So far, nothing has brought me any closer to figuring out what this problem could be. I am pretty sure that somehow, my sound card (its an integrated one) has just fried or something, but I really dont know.

So... is my sound card busted? Or are my drivers just not working for some reason?

Thanks for your help in advance.

A:Sound Card issue, or driver issue?

System restore . . .

System restore or system recovery? Did wipe the old operating system out and reinstall everything from scratch (system recovery) or did you use Windows' system restore to backdate the configuration. (Frankly, I think the choice these of terms by the industry are very confusing.)

Assuming system recovery and assuming the sound worked before and quit after system recovery, I'm for a misconfiguration. But, the simpler fix might be a cheap add-in sound card.

A:PC restart during graphic-intensive tasks. PSU issue? GPU issue? Mobo issue?

You've got Asus motherboard, hence the first thing I'll look at considering the issues you are having, is at RAM settings/voltage in the board's BIOS, these should be exactly the same as on RAM packaging, but even that doesn't guarantee that it may not be the issue, so basically you'll need to fiddle around a bit with settings/voltage in case default specs doesn't work.

You may also consider stress testing your graphic card using OCCT (including vRam). Regards

I am taking a class at my school, and they lent us these older Dell laptops that run at 1.3ghz, have 800mhz fsb, and contain 256mb ddr ram (loaded up bios on the computer to see). What I can't figure out is the fact that whenever I log on using the schools user name, the computer takes a good 30 seconds logging on, and starts out with 100% usage of the cpu, although only has 22 processes. I end around six or seven of them, although the computer speeds up, it is still slow. It could probably use a good defragmenting, though it wouldn't slow down that much, right? Also, the computers are very restricted. I know some bugs with Xp that can remove the administators password, but I won't touch these computers further than I have.

A:Speed issue

Hi cfitzarl,

I don't know if there are 1.3 GHZ CPU's with a 800MHZ FSB. I think those 800MHZ FSB CPU's are Northwood's C (A or B, donīt know ), and Prescotts.
There are 1.3GHZ P4's, with 400MHZ FSB, some P3's with 133FSB, etc.

Regarding the machine, I'd defragment it, but it would take a while. I don't think that you have time to do it.
Also, it could have viruses, and crap like that.

Anyways, 1.3 GHZ is a little slow for windows XP, so don't expect miracles, especially if they have a normal coppermine Celeron CPU.

I am having a strange issue. My wired download speed is .80/mbps while my upload is 8.5/mbps. The connection is FIOS 35/35 and I am having zero issues with any other cpu on the network wired or wireless.

This is a new machine with a fresh install on it. The only 'third party' app is Chrome.

Network setup is follows:
Verizon FIOS ont box > Cisco E1000 Router > Linksys 24port 10/100 switch

This box is plugged into the switch at the end of the chain. I have swapped cables and have tested different machines. Everything else is working fine but not this machine.

Any tips?

Is that the speed that you are seeing when you download a file or is it through a speed test?

Also, if that is the speed while downloading a file but your speed test is fine; Does the download start high then drop down?

I have a dell demension 3000 ( i know nothing special) The original specs were a 512mb ram and a 2.8ghz p4 and i have upgraded it to 2gb of ram and a ati radeon X1550 256mb graphics card. I just reformatted from xp home to xp pro and i have noticed a sever slow down in the computer before battlefield 2 maps would load within 2 to 3 mins and ran smooth now they take close to 5 and are jitterey in the game and simple task on the computer are all jittery and slow to what could be causeing this. is it xp pro or something else. I have ran virus scan and several disk defrag waht could be wrong.

A:Speed issue

Does that computer come with onboard graphics? And if so did you disable it in the BIOS and or uninstall it in device manager? Was the Pro installed fresh? Have you tried uninstalling then reinstalling the GPU drivers? In the BIOS you'll find a setting that says Init Display First. If you switched from onboard to a graphics card that need to be changed from PCI to AGP or PCI express depending on the systems configuration. The other thing is when the graphics become jerky like that it is often either a GPU unable to handle the applications graphics (like an old card trying to play a new game), or it's a GPU heat issue, but with the heat thing you would probably be getting artifacts (patchy areas that aren't rendering properly) as well.

I recently added memory to my Gateway FX 7026 quad core. After I was done with the process, during the post process an error flashed across (too quick to capture unfortunately), but it had to do with a Microsoft Handler of some sort. The net result is that my cpu cooling fan is running constantly at top speed now. I have had the system for 6 months and it has never run like this before.

Any ideas?

A:Fan Speed Issue

Hello Erekosa, welcome to Vista forums!

Seeing that you're having issues with new RAM installed and 'handler' issues; it may be that the 'new' RAM is bad! (it happens)

The best option would be to burn Memtesr86 to a CD and test each stick individually for at least one full pass.

I have recently just got Virgin Media 10mb connection (wireless). Me and my friend share this connection, he has a mac i have a pc(laptop). It seems that my friend can get near enough full speed with downloads etc (tested on, my friend got nearly 10mb download speed, however I averaged at 6mb. Another example, my friend downloaded a file from a website, the speed went at about 1.5mb/s, I then downloaded the exact same file directly after his download had finished, my average download speed was 250kb/s.
My wireless card is "intel(r) pro/wireless 3945abg", it is a 54mb/s card so it should be more than capable to get the full 10mb/s that is offered to me. Any help in how to 'de-restrict' my card to obtain the full speed?

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks in advance

A:Internet Speed issue

That is not a bad speed at all. The advertized speed is the maximum, rarely achieved in real situations. The location of your internet connection is where WildBlue's servers connect you to the internet.

Not sure what to say about your video problem except that when I had a 2 mbps connection, I watched YouTube without many delays. A lower quality feed may help.

When I connect the WHS to a cable upstairs (short cable) I get Gigabit connection speed, however when I put the server downstairs (10 metre cable), I only get 100 Mb LAN speed.

The only difference is the CAT-5e cable and length.

Do I need a shielded CAT-5e or a CAT-6 cable.

Hi guys after installing some new RAM i checked CPU-Z to see if all was ok, and it doesn't seem to be.

I bought some Crucial Ballistix 8Gb 1866MHz, however is doesn't seem to be running at 1866 more like 667MHZ.

I have a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 and a AMD FX-4100

Is there way i can force the speed on the RAM to 1866?

Any input is greatly appreciated.


A:Memory Speed Issue

CPU-Z reports the clock frequency of the RAM. DDR (DDR2, DDR3) transfer data twice per clock tick, so CPU-Z reports 667MHz for DDR3-1333.

Most motherboards seem to run DDR3-1333 and up at DDR3-1333 by default. To get the higher frequency, you'd either need to set the BIOS to use XMP, or manually set the RAM frequency and timings.

A:Issue on download speed

First what kind of internet service do you have, and what speed.
Test your internet using dsl reports, or speedtest. I prefer speedtest: - The Global Broadband Speed Test

How are you connecting to the internet, wired or wireless. Also as a side note the slow download speeds could also be on the downstream server end. The number of simultaneous downloads, they might throttle back the server to save bandwith, etc.

Ok, I'm stumped by my internet issue. Maybe you can shed some light on it.

Ping is averaging 11000ms, upload 0.01-0.07, download 0.2-0.4
Here's the setup: AT&T modem --> Linksys Router --> 2 simple switches --> computers

What I tried:
1. I plugged in a laptop directly to the modem and speed is back to normal.
2. I swapped out a cat 5 cable between the modem and router and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.
3. I swapped out the router with a new one and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.

So the router is fine. I don't think it's the switches if everything is working fine for a couple minutes. Also, my wireless is fast and then bad again when I tried swapping stuff out.

However, bittorrent downloads go much faster than normal browsing.

I recently reinstalled XP on my computer after erasing my entire HD, the problem is that it seems to be a lot slower for some things. For example, when I open a folder and drag the window across the screen, it's extremely laggy, when it used to be perfectly fine and smooth. Or when I scroll down on a webpage, it's also very slow and the frame rate, I guess, is horrible.

I suspect this might be because the Windows partition is 5GB instead of 30GB on my HD.

Also, I have a USB mass storage device and windows has made it the C:\ drive, and the internal HD is now J:\ How do I correct this?

Also, I have a USB mass storage device and windows has made it the C:\ drive, and the internal HD is now J:\ How do I correct this?

You disconnect the external hard drive and then do a full re-install of Windows and during it you make it do the drive C:\ First backup any important data and format the drive that the Windows XP is installed on now.

Here are instructions on doing a full install of Windows XP

Hi all

My LAN interface connects only with 100Mb/s speed with no reason though it is 1Gbit capable card (Intel 82577LC). I tried it with 3 devices (router, switch, PC directly) and a lot of cables, which are works with 1 GE speed between each other except for Toshiba laptop.

Did anybody meet this problem too? Is there any fix for it?

A:LAN 1G speed issue in Satellite R630-143

The integrated Intel 82577LC Lan card supports the 10 BASE-T / 100 BASE-TX and 1000 BASE-T network standards.

Usually you can change some LAN card options in the LAN card properties.
Go to device manager -> LAN card (Ethernet) -> click right and choose Properties.
Switch to ?Advanced? tab.

Now you should see all options which could be optimized

I have recently chosen a new ISP and am paying for a 1Mbps connection.The problem is that i get a very low download speed of say 16Kbps only when i download using IE. Howver when i use a download manager speeds move up to 100 Kbps and the download gets completed in 1/7th of the time.

Another thing that seems related is that even if i download 6 -7 files at one time (simultaneously) each one will download at around 16 - 18 Kbps totalling to the same overall seed that i expect to get on my 1Mbps connection

Is there something i can try from my end before i blame my ISP?

So originally I was using a Rosewill USB HDD Dock with my WD HD103SI 1 TB Hard Drive. Everything went great, but eventually filled that up. I bought a new WD HD103SJ 1 TB Hard Drive, formatted it as NTFS, but the speeds are horrible. Transfer rates say around 2.0 mb/s give or take .5 mb/s, so it takes around an hour to transfer a 4 GB file to the hard drive, whereas it took 4 minutes on my other one. I didn't change any settings, I just plopped a new hard drive into the same HDD dock, but the speeds I am getting on that hard drive are poor. I also noticed that the file text on the hard drive is in blue? not sure why that is...

Hi I'm currently having a problem with my win7 64 bit desktops wireless speed. It has recently decided to slow to a crawl I'm talking to the point where the speed is measured in bytes not kilobytes when accessing the net and downloading files. I know it's the computer not my network as other wifi gear still works at full speed.

The only change I have made is to switch antivirus from kaspersky to mcafee, I use a Asus wl-138g v2 wifi card( I know it's old but it's been very reliable until now). Any help would be apreciated, thanx in advance.

A:Internet Download Speed Issue

Hi NomadAU, welcome to Seven Forums.

I recently had similar problems with my Netgear DGN2000. It would download on my wired desktop pc at a snails pace. On my laptop, speed was excellent. When I wired my laptop to my router it would load my home page only and gave No Internet connection. If I moved the ethernet cable to any other ports on the router to my desktop pc it would give No Internet connection.
Removing all connection related settings from both pc's and resetting router to factory default did nothing to improve anything. So I bought a Netgear DGN2200v3, now normal service resumed.

Hello everyone,

This is an issue mainly with my hard-drive and not Windows 8. I attached an image to help resolve this problem. Whenever the 'Data transfer rate' reaches 100% I get huge performance issues. This happens whenever I deal with a few running programs that are accessing and writing data.

The speed transfer of this HD is about 3Gbits I think and is interfaced with SATA. Does this mean I have to buy a new HD with larger transfer rate or am I missing something?

I used to run Windows 7 but switched to 8 and with the new task manager I 'managed' to notice the performance with my HD.

Just installed this game and by default this game runs on my Integrated Graphics and not the High-Performance NVIDIA Processor. Running using the Integrated Graphics, the game main menu was lagging like it was around 5-10 fps. Scrolling the options was so slow and quite annoying. However the gameplay was smooth, only at the main menu was lagging.

Running the game using High-Performance NVIDIA Processor settings, all were smooth, both main menu and gameplay. However I cannot choose to run this game using the High-Performance NVIDIA Processor by default, I don't know why.

Is there any way to force this game to run using the High-Performance NVIDIA Processor ?

I already go to NVIDIA Control Panel and set the game to run using High-Performance NVIDIA Processor. But when I ran the game it still use the Integrated Graphics.

Well, managed to find lines responsible for Fan speed controll, and after changing and updating, fan is still on 100%, even tried to set all values to 10% or 20% etc, it just ignores it and its still on full power, system is cold, its not overheating issue... Only thing i can try is to reinstall windows (win 7 x64) but I doubt it will help... Suspecting its hardware issue (altho I crossed that possibility)... Anyone had similar issue maybe?

Hello everyone I'm really hoping someone here can give me a hand I've been tossed back and forth between twitch issue / streaming upload low to (Due speed) gaming tv support my ISP and a few other forums that mainly discuss internet speeds Here is some basic information to get started Location Edmonton Alberta streaming / gaming issue (Due to low upload speed) Canada PC Lenovo Y P Laptop OS Windows Modem Hitron CGNM- -SHW ISP Shaw Communications streaming / gaming issue (Due to low upload speed) Broadband Package Additional Information My laptop is plugged directly into the back of my modem using a ethernet cord Problem Extremely low upload speed despite one service Ookla Speedtest telling me that i'm getting what I pay for I'm having issues live streaming games on twitch tv video buffers for my viewers having issues watching livestreams buffers occasionally - guess this might be a common issue and i'm also have some really bad ping in games like Path of Exile Here are some speed tests The first one is using Ookla this one is partnered with my ISP so they use this to determine if i'm getting the speeds i'm paying for unfortunately this service says that everything is okay I've included both a speed test for here in Edmonton Alberta And another test for the server that is closest to the twitch tv server out in Seattle WA Ookla seems to look okay I should be able to stream with these speeds no problem Now after speaking with twitch support staff they advise that I use other services to determine why when I try to live stream i'm buffering for my viewers This is the test done at testmy net This service tells me that i'm only getting Kbps Which is definitely much lower than either of the above tests And the last test is the most important one they mentioned that I try and run as this test determines which server I have the strongest connection to in order to live stream http i imgur com sNFzLs png This above image is stating that I have Quality Basically telling me that i'm unable to stream I had one of my friends who lives about minutes away from me who is also using Shaw - but on a lower plan Broadband run all of these tests His Ookla came back fine he scored a Mbps on testmy net and then linked me this image to his Twitch Bandwidth test https cdn discordapp com attachments PNG Now that i've explained everything here are the steps i've already taken to try and rectify my issue Restarted Computer Restarted Modem Tested on Wireless Tested using different ethernet cord Contacted ISP Ran Malware Bytes and Virus Scan Tested Wifes Acer laptop Booted up in safemode Contacted ISP and got a replacement modem - from a Cisco to a Hitron Reformatted my computer Downloaded the most up to date LAN drivers Posted on this forum After all of these steps i'm still left with no improvement My ISP can't do anything as they base is solely off of Ookla If anyone has any other suggestions - i'm all ears Thanks

I have put the sound card into my computer and made sure that I've hooked up everything correctly, but I have ran into a problem with it. When I ran the download "Product Identification Module Update" from the Creative website, it's telling me that I don't have the right OS, and tells me to update to Windows 7 or later versions. Well, my problem is that I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, which I know is plenty new, and I don't understand why it's not letting me download the update/driver for the sound card.

I had this issue before all of a sudden the sound coming from my computer gets really quiet even though everything is maxed out Before it seemed Reoccurring cards two sound low issue affecting sound to have been triggered when I moved my computer from one room to another I wasn't able to move it back right away but when I did it was still happening I removed the sound card I have replaced it tried different PCI slots tested my onboard sound card etc but to no avail Eventually it fixed itself and I have no idea what caused it Earlier today my sound was working perfectly fine I left my computer on the entire time to do other things and when I got back to it the volume is again really low When it was happening before the sound seemed Reoccurring low sound issue affecting two sound cards to be crackling on higher volumes but there's no crackling that I can hear this time I again tried my onboard sound card and the issue was also affecting it I normally use headphones but also tried speakers and the issue is still there on them too Like I said though my computer was Reoccurring low sound issue affecting two sound cards on the entire time I was gone and nothing was changed but this suddenly started happening Considering it's affecting both sound cards I imagine it has to be an issue with something else like my motherboard or Windows itself I wasn't able to find what was causing it last time though so honestly I have no idea Edit Update I found a pair of USB headphones and their volume seems fine I hope this means something I assume that with USB it's not going through either sound card though that doesn't make too much sense to me but what that means I don't know

A:Reoccurring low sound issue affecting two sound cards

Hello and welcome Sakonoso now to me it seems that the audio through the USB port might be coming from the board audio and not the sound cards hence why it is ok. Having said that usually the on board stuff is usually cut off if there is a sound card installed.

Now it seems to narrow it down a little if this is the case and there are some things you can run sfc and a chkdsk to see if there is anything going on in the system if you need to - run the latter using the /f and /r "switches"

The other thing to do is update the drivers if you haven?t done so already

Hello everyone My audio has seem to quit on me I updated to the newest drivers for my mobo biostar A U from their OnBoard RealTek No Sound - Sound Issue download page and now I get no sound whatsoever from my speakers I have tried uninstalling all of the sound devices from the device manager and letting windows reinstall them but to no avail I have also made sure that the onboard sound is on in the bios When I uninstall the sound devices it defaults back to the windows default audio driver which won't recognize something is plugged in It greys out my speakers and then defaults to the Digital Ouput but I have no such device I then have also tried downloading the onboard audio drivers from the mobo download page and installing them They install but it then defaults to the Realtek Digital Output RealTek OnBoard Sound Issue - No Sound once again I don't have such a device If I go to the realtek HD audio manager and disable front RealTek OnBoard Sound Issue - No Sound panel detection it doesn't even recognize any of my back panels being plugged in Even if I try to plug in my RealTek OnBoard Sound Issue - No Sound headset mic the manager doesnt pic it up If I play music at this point the speaker shows the level volume changing but I dont hear anything I've tried switching back and forth all configurations in the manager and changed the levels of things still nothing Can anyone help Or am I gonna have to go pick up a sound card That picture also shows it trying to use the front jack which I dont have hooked up because I want to use the back panel So I'm assuming that may be part of the reason And those disabled High Def Audio Devices where from my video card and where sound output from it but I uninstalled those as well seeing if windows installing them would help I don't use it anyway so I disabled them

A:RealTek OnBoard Sound Issue - No Sound

The first thing I see is four HD Audio devices in the Device Manager that should be uninstalled (RIGHT click on the entry for the device and then LEFT click Uninstall) then restart the PC. Get rid of them to eliminate any possibile conflicts.

If there is a "default" setting for the sound outputs, set it to default and see if that helps.

I notice a web cam that is also showing up. They can tend to cause issues too so temporarily disconnect that from the PC while you are trying to get the system audio setup.

Oh boy, that is a lot of issues, it would most likely take less time and effort if you just backed up your data and do a full wipe and reformat.

What player are you using?

To double-check, go to videolan.or and download the VLC player and use it.

Hello all I m hoping someone here can shed some light on a problem I m having I ll present the facts as I know them and let the geniuses here sort them out I will provide a system profile at the end of this Recently the sound cut out altogether on my PC I m not sure if this is relevant but issue sound it was following an install of quot Crysis quot I looked in device manager and found question marks indicating SM bus controller and two audio devices So I updated the drivers on them and only one worked I went looking for the other two and wound up re-installing my ATI Catalyst suite as well as re-installing the SM bus controllers This fixed the problem It worked for a sound issue bit then died on me again This time all my settings were intact I checked the sound control panel and everything there was fine also i e my wireless headset was the device selected On a whim I tried a system restore and that worked Now the sound is out again and I ve repeated all my previous steps with no solution I ve re-installed all the necessary drivers tried system restore checked the sound control panel but nothing Everything seems to indicate the sound should be working I m not getting any error messages I ve tried a different headset tried running various apps to see if that was the problem but I am not getting sound in games or windows media player or VLC player etc I consulted a friend who s better at this than I and he suggested that this might be a winXP issue as he had that problem in the past but not since upgrading to Vista What could the problem be Why would two different solutions work then not work Here then is my system profile WinXP Home SP build gigahertz AMD Phenom Quad-Core processor FOXCONN A DA-S A DA motherboard x GB hard drives ATI Radeon HD Series graphics card PS I also tried disabling the ATI audio driver to avoid any conflicts it might be having with the Realtek audi driver but that didn t work either Any help is appreciated

I want to connect my headphones to the back of my pc because the front green jack is not working properly (only hear on left side).
The problem is the green jack in the back is occupied with my speakers the rest are vacant, but all of them have horrible sound when i plug my headphones in.
The sound in BIOS is configured to AC97.
Here is a screenshot from Realtek audio manager:

Recently my computer had a nice little system crash and I needed to re install windows.
Since doing so, I also added a new slave drive to back up files on incase this happens again (music, pictures ect.)

However since the install every time restart the computer my sound card for some reason goes crazy and sound on my computer wont work unless i re install the drivers. after doing so the sound works fine untill i restart.

Also before the sound card failed the last time i got some win32 error message.

Do you think this problem is related to the introduction of the slave drive, the sound card itself, or some windows corruption

(p.s. I ran sfc /scannow which prompted me to insert the windows disc ect. however it fixed nothing)

Machine specs amd x dual core gigs of memory creative sound blaster audio pci wdm how it shows up in the Odd issue Sound device mananger Here s the issue every so often seemingly at random music plays at a highly accelerated rate It happens in iTunes frequently but never in winamp In iTunes for about two seconds out of every five minutes music will play at double to triple its normal speed At first I thought it was just an iTunes error However it also does it in some games UT most Odd Sound issue notably It is much less common when it happens in UT however when it occurs the song will play at about four to five times the normal rate though all other sound effects are at their normal Odd Sound issue rates Unlike when the issue occurs in other programs it will continue until the song is either changed or the map ends I ve tried swapping ram around going as much as gigs as low as gig I ve tried running the processors as close to idle as possible as well as maxing them out with distributed computing programs I think it has to be an issue with my sound card drivers I m using the ones which came with the card initially but given the vague profile description as well as the card being referred to as only a quot Sound Blaster Live Digital quot and a lack of visible markings on the card I m a bit stumped as to what drivers I would need - or if this is entirely related to sound drivers nbsp

Okay one day I got on my computer and it sort of booted up but then crashed. I started it again and there was no sound and a little installation balloon popped up asking me to install a multimedia audio controller. I clicked on it to try and see if this was the thing for my sound, but basically it said it didn't know where to look for files or how to install. I really want my sound back and have looked everywhere for ans answer, any help people?

About my computer all I know is that its a Windows XP. The speaker system Im using is Altec Lansing speakers and sub woofer I think ATP3. Not sure. Please help my ignorant mind figure this out.

A:Need help with a sound issue

On that "happy day" that you got your computer you should have also gotten a nice CD with the drivers of your soundcard, if it's onboard then it will be on the disc of you motherboard.

Multimedia device = sound card

Without knowing what soundcard you have we can't really help you get the drivers.
But you should have gotten them with your computer, allof of ppl lose those cd's/forgot that they ever got them/don't know what they are

So if you have some unkown CD with "motherboard drivers" or, "soundcard drivers" on, thats what you need

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop, it's a VGN FE66OG if that matters. Anyways, I installed Vista a while back and since my headphone jack is not working right. It will only work with certain programs like Windows Media and various websites. I use iTunes so this is kind of a problem for me. Any suggestions would be great!

Hi every on forum I'm new here and my English is not so good so Big issue! sound please don't get angry by it I'm a hugh fan of my OS and I wouldn't change it for anything first thing to know On my job I work on CentOS remote server with no GUI and it is hard to learn it so I decided to shrink my C partition to have a dual boot - Win and Ubuntu I suposed Big sound issue! that I will learn Ubuntu basics faster if I had GUI I installed it and start to work In a pile of installs on Ubuntu I installed some kind of sound drivers update so that it could recodnise my Xonar DS I managed to do it but it did something to my sound in Win In that second of fear I formatted a whole Ubuntu partition from win and then restarted PC After that I couldn't boot to because of Grub rescue grrrrrrub I finally Big sound issue! managed to make it work from command prompt on dvd but the Big sound issue! sound issue is still there Sound works but it is very very wrong I tried to reinstall sond drivers but it didn't help Does anyone know what could be the problem Please help it is making me crazy I'm planning to buy Acronis disk suite for backup is it worth of money Is there any better backup software How can Acronis run backup format and put everthing in place for about minutes when installation of itself needes more than minutes I supose that then manuall installation of everything is much more stabil then backup is it Thanks a lot Sizif

A:Big sound issue!

In regards to your second question. I think that most backup software is worth the money. Personally, I just use Macrium Reflect, which is a free product. The reason that these services can backup and/or restore faster than an installation is due to the fact that they're copying the contents of a drive and then placing those contents backup exactly as they were. There's no installation, no configuration, etc. By the way, 15 minutes is a best case scenario, I'm guessing you can only achieve that with a top of the line hardware setup inlcluding an SSD. Anyway, I recommend that you try out the beta of Acronis and a few other programs before committing. You may find that a free product works just fine.
