Q: Sound stops working at random period of time

Okay this is a very odd problem What happens exactly is that at what seems a random point of of stops period working time at random Sound time usually long after the computer s Sound stops working at random period of time been turned on though a very loud buzzing and static-y sound will start playing from my speakers or headphones if they re plugged in This goes on for about seconds and then all audio cuts Oddly enough if I even try to play a sound say I press Play on a song in Winamp it won t even play the song at all almost as though it knows the sound won t work If I let a video play there s a big lag time before it starts and then it plays but without sound If I wait long enough usually about minutes the sound comes back I at first thought it might be my speakers considering they re almost years old but when I noticed this would happen to my headphones too I figured it was the sound card My sound card is a Creative SB X-Fi Any other information that you need please just tell me I hope this problem isn t as odd and uncommon as I think it is P All help is greatly appreciated Thanks nbsp

Preferred Solution: Sound stops working at random period of time

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.)

A: Sound stops working at random period of time

What are your complete system specs? Have you tried updating the sound card drivers directly from Creative's support site?

Hello everyone,

I recently purchased the Acer Aspire 5755G laptop for gaming purposes, for the first couple of days it worked just fine but now I'm witnessing random freezes which cause my system to crash for a moment and when it happens, I'm hearing a weird (terminator?) sound from the speakers. I overclock my GPU when I play games but I'm sure it isn't a GPU problem since this happened before I even started overclocking the GPU. I'm not sure but I think that the CPU is the main cause of my system crashing.

Specs:

Intel i5 2430M CPU (with Turbo boost)
nVidia Geforce GT 540M
8GB DDR3 1333 MHZ RAM
750 GB 5400 RPM TOSHIBA HDD
Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Hope you guys can help me out with this annoying problem

Thx!

A:Sound stops working random times (Audiodg.exe appcrash)

I'm a computer enthusiast since a kid in the early 80s, and I often help a lot on forums, and the number of times that downgrading anything has been a good thing to do is probably less than 3 or 4 (besides going back to 7 lol - kidding - 8 is same stability). It's so common to see that advice, so I don't blame you.

It's probably antivirus or some driver issue.

If you run the tool in Brink's thread then post the results here, we'll get it good.

A:Random Internet Drops During Specific Time Period

You should change your wireless security to WPA2 with AES encryption.

The WEP you are using now is outdated and easily hacked into and usually will not work correctly with Windows 7 drivers. This could also cause the connection problems you are seeing now.

You should also uninstall any third party A/V software on this system as they are famous for causing such as you are describing.

I keep randomly having BSOD on WIN 7 x64 when i left it on for long periods of time without using it. Sometimes though rarely, the whole OS will not respond to anything while i'm using and i have little choice but to use the reboot button. I have no idea what causes this issue. This has been happening since i got this computer roughly 1 year plus ago but i didn't really bothered till recently as it's getting more frequent. Was hoping someone can shed some light on to what is giving this issue to me.

A:Random BSOD when computer is left idling for prolong period of time

The crash is due to your Marvell controller drivers for your hard disk. The drivers appear to be corrupted.

First uninstall through Device Manager. Log in as an administrative user -> Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager -> Expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers -> Right click the Marvell device -> Click Uninstall (Do not hit OK after clicking Uninstall) -> Put a tick in the box to delete the driver software for this device -> Click OK -> Restart the computer if asked.

Download the latest drivers for the Marvell Controllers device: ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS P7P55D-E PRO -> Windows 7 64bit -> SATA ->

Hello everyone,

For the second time within the past two weeks I've had quite an annoying problem regarding my left mouse button on my synaptics pointing device, all of a sudden the left mouse button will stop working. The right mouse button and the rest of the touchpad will work apart from being able to click the LMB function. I've had this happen once before quite a few months ago but thought nothing of it at the time. This occurs for around half a minute to sometimes a minute before returning to normal and being able to use the LMB. I am using a Lenovo Z580 if that is any help to anyone.

I have tried searching around the internet for any information regarding this problem but I have not been able to find any solution or information connected to my issue.

Thank you in advance!

A:Left Mouse Button - Stops working from time to time.

Hello LO mate when you click the button do you hear an audible click from inside the mouse it could be something as simple as a stuck micro switch.

Also if it is a wired one check the USB contacts too - in the plug and socket. You can clean them gently with a strip (about 5 mm with the corners rounded off) of old credit card with some lint free cloth around the end of it moistened very lightly with some alcohol

By the way just how old is the mouse?

When I'm playing music with Mediamonkey (or other programs), after about 10 minutes the screen goes black and the sound stops, which is really annoying (I have to press any button to wake the PC up).

How can I change this?

ok so everything is going smooth and then !BAM! the sound stops and the only way i can get it back is to restart my computer. (I have an SiS 718 wave) it happens at random. When im playing half life, or listening to music. But for some reson especilly Max Payne i can play that for about 5 to 20 minutes before the sound cuts out it happens at different times like sometimes i'll play half life for 45 minutes before the sound cuts out and sometimes for 2 hours before the sound cuts out. I've tried updating the drivers, and windows update, downloaded the latest service pack (by the way im running windows 2000) but it still doesent fix the problem So can anyone help me out please !!
 

A:sound stops at random

I would suspect a resource issue of some kind, but have no idea what would be causing it out of the blue for you. Something similar used to happen when I ran MS Flight Simulator using certain planes and options. It was preceeded by a video slow down though and sound would be lost pending a reboot.

Do check that all your memory is recoginzed and that something is not eating into it such as background programs, good or bad.

The Task Manager can be used to check up on performance resources. Look especially at the "peak" value -- that really should never rise to more than 2/3 your physical memory for good performance. If it does, you don't have enough ram -- or too much of it is getting used for some reason.

Hi,I am deeply annoyed by an issue that has plagued this goddamn laptop since I bought it.My audio works normally for a few days, and then suddenly it stops working after a few days.I have the Bang and Olufsen speakers. I have reinstalled the drivers from the Realtek website a few times but this goddamn problem comes back,and drives me nuts. I can't tell you how much I hate this laptop, it came with this horrible windows 10 OS, and I can't tellyou how much I hate both windows 10 and this goddamn laptop which is plagued by so many issues,that I only bought it because I had no better options. The red X on the speaker volume means the goddamn thing has stopped working again andsays no audio driver is installed.HP and windows suck.

So my sound has recently stopped working. What I did was I uninstalled the driver and restarted my computer and the sound worked then it stopped working after that. The sound options are grayed out and I am unable to hear. Could a virus be causing this? Everytime I turn on my computer I always get 35362.exe and random numbers like that. What type of virus is this? Is this a cause of this?>
 

A:Sound stops working after Windows XP Introduction sound

I have also lost sound after an XP upgrade. I was told it is because the sound card in 8760C will not work with XP and I need to install a new sound card.

I took the back off and everything is so covered and hidden (multiple screwed on panels with no obvious way to remove them). I used a flash light to get a better look at the sound card and it looks customized for HP. It does not look like the Dell sound card I pulled from another unit.

So... where can I take this PC to get a pro to replace the sound card with something that works? Dallas, TX

So recently the sound on my desktop and my laptop has stopped working For seemingly no reason I really don't understand it I first noticed it with my desktop The sound just randomly stopped Sound Randomly Desktop and on Laptop Stops Working Working and working But not entirely It's really strange Sound on Laptop and Desktop Randomly Stops Working and Working and complicated what's been happening so bare with me while I try to explain it as best I can PC First time sound stopped working on PC Restarted computer sound came back no issues Second time I woke up to find VLC frozen Sound wasn't working I restarted VLC No sound Found out that there was no sound on the computer at all When I'd try to increase the volume on VLC it would only change within an interval of ten percent So it was at percent initially Would not let me go below but not above Sound didn't work anyway Restarted sound returned VLC working fine Third time I was playing Dragon Age Inquisition Sound worked fine using my headset Turtle Beach Went to speakers to lay down and watch some shows on VLC No sound on speakers Switched to Turtle Beach again sound returned Restarted VLC now suddenly no sound on VLC OR speakers Had to restart computer no issues after restart Laptop First time sound stopped working used the quot disable audio and reenable audio driver quot didn't solve anything Restarted sound came back Sound stopped working again same day restarted sound came back The next time I restarted the audio driver Realtek and then I shut down Explorer and then restarted explorer via the task manager Audio started working again Did same steps today sound not working Will have to of course restart my laptop One thing I noticed If there is something currently playing the sound won't go out for it even if sound goes out elsewhere So I had VLC running constantly and I could hear the sound from VLC while suddenly the sounds from everything else on the computer stopped working However once I restarted VLC sound stopped Only until restarting the computer or waiting for it to work again does the sound come back Other Info I find it weird that this is something happening to both my desktop and laptop at the same time I did a malware bytes sweep of my desktop found nothing Drivers are up-to-date My desktop is custom built I can't remember the MOBO right now but it's only a couple years old The laptop is about or years old at this point The computer seems to recognize that speakers are hooked up but when I would try and do tests it would say it cant' do sound tests So it HAS to be a driver problem it seems and not a MOBO issue Especially since my desktop the sound comes via USB

A:Sound on Laptop and Desktop Randomly Stops Working and Working

Update: I'm not at home to test my PC, but I think I discovered the issue. It seems to possibly be a glitch or something with flash player.

After watching an episode of Daily Show on Hulu, I went back to Tumblr and saw that a video didn't have sound, and then all sound on my computer was suddenly gone. I then tried something out, and shut down flashplayer. That temporarily brought sound back.

But it quickly went away.

Then I shut down Firefox and flash player entirely, and sound comes back even when Flash Player comes up.

What could cause this?

I think it all started when I tried to install TopoUSA V 4 to my computer. After that, when I go to MSConfig, I find that it is in "selective startup" mode. I have been able to manually start all services and startup items, but when I click on "normal startup" I get the message that "MSConfig has stopped working"

I'm able to start my computer just fine and it's working as I expect, but MSConfig is broken.

Hello everyone,

I have spent a lot of time looking for the solution to the problem quoted in the topic title and I know that some of you experience the same. As it appears in a couple of threads it makes it hard to post a response in each of them, so I will create a new one.
The problem usually occurs on computers running p2p programs or other software that creates many connections. The problem is a bug in ICS (internet connection sharing), you can read a discussion here :
Vista RTM can't open new socket. - MSDN Forums

If you don't want to read the whole discussion, you can just check this link containing the solution :
After you configure Internet Connection Sharing in Windows Vista, the network connection stops working after one-to-two hours

So I have a Xonar Essence STX with a turtle beach X12 headset hooked up all in the back. It seems that the microphone stops working after the computer has been on for some time. It seems pretty random. If I leave my computer and come back a few hours later. I can only seem to get it to work if I restart my PC! I can still hear that the microphone works, because I hear myself through the headset, but I can't record and nobody can hear me. I've tried multiple things, but the only thing that works is a fresh restart. Plz any ideas? I've updated to the latest drivers, messed with control panel settings. Went into the Xonar menu and tried switching the front panel microphone. Still Nothing. It's like something gets shut off and the only thing to turn it back on is the restart.

A:everything internet related stops working for x amount of time

It's probably something running in the background since all browsers are affected. Try changing your AV from automatic to notifying you so you can update definitions manually. Think of other programs that are set to run in the background or since you built the unit, if your fans are sufficient since heat can cause the problem.

Over the last week or so, my Firefox stops working within twenty seconds of me starting it. It just says "Firefox has stopped working" and I'm forced to close the browser. Windows "searches for a solution" and all it comes up with is that "a problem" forced Firefox to close. There's nothing specific to go on. Then when I close the program and try starting Firefox again, everything's fine. It's just the first attempt that goes haywire.

I'm wondering if this might have something to do with Windows Vista, because I've only been using this OS for a few months and I never had a problem with XP. Help!

At no particular interval the wifi in my laptop turns off. I found that if I go into device manager disable and then re-enable it, it fixes it, but I end up doing this every other day and it really annoys me. Since I first noticed the problem, I have reinstalled windows ( for various other reasons ) multiple times, but the problem still exists. Is it a hard ware problem?

Hi,
Go to Settings, Devices, select Mouse&Touchpad, scroll down to Additional Mouse Options, go to Elan tab, highlight the Elan smartpad and click Options, try switching to reverse scroll and other options to get the right settings which could work for you, I have attached my settings for comparing but you may have to try different options.

Hello, for a couple of days I started to get thoose sound bugs, it stop working for a second and then the sound continues again.

This happends when i'm watching a serie or listening to music, whenever I open a new tab on my chrome the sound stops for like a second maybe even a milisecond or so.
I'm not sure but I think it started when I wanted to clean some stuff from my HDD (C:), (my videos and games), my games was on my (C:) and I uninstalled them and installed them again on my (D:)
This first was not a problem because it was not a big of a deal, it happened maybe once a hour or so but now it happends more and more often.

This is starting to get annoying so I decided to finally try and solve this problem.

A:Sound stops working

Hmm , sounds very strange , the only thing I can think of is your sound card may be on its way out but that wouldnt explain the program freezes.
Seeing as you did a fresh install of windows , the only other thing I can think of is that maybe an area on your Hard disk is damaged.

Past 5 weeks or so my internet connection has been having issues. Internet stops working for everything on the network. My computer (windows 7) doesn't usually say the internet is having issues during the disconnects, it says the network still has a connection to the internet, but loading a webpage in chrome gives me a DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET error. When i'm in a skype call while my internet does this, the call quality remains normal, but people in the call can't hear me, or my voice is excessively distorted. This lasts for 20-30 seconds till i drop from the call. In skype's call details it says i have BW_CRITICAL under my problems. My send packet loss also raises from 0%/0% to ~55%/360%. Just want an answer to why my internet is disconnected and how to resolve it. :/

I have a Compaq PC with Windows XP Home SP2 an integrated SoundMax sound card. It is almost 4 years old.

The sound card has always worked fine, until recently. However, now it will stop generating sound (ie., using iTunes or RealPlayer) periodically. Then if I re-boot it starts working again... for a while. Then it stops again.

I have tried updating the driver several times, and the sound will work fine for a while, but the problem is still happening.

Any advice on how to diagnose the cause would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi,

My acer (aspier v5 171 Series) (windows 8) has been working smoothly for 1 year now, but since couple of days the sound would go off if something is not being played for sometime. then I need to restart to get it back...initially I though it happens after I lock the laptop but today it went off even without locking.

all the sound icons like speaker icon, volume bar is functional but with no sound.

any pointers?

Hi
I've bought a set of new speakers for listening to music on my PC. However they stop playing randomly after a while. If I then go to the Device-manager and rightclick on the speakers (which is set as the default Device for sound) and do the test it works again for a while, whereupon the pattern repeats again.
First I used The built-in Realtek HD audio on my ASUS MB, and then I installed a Creative SB Audigy 2CZ sound card to see if it had anything to do with the Realtek-setup, but the patterne is the same.
Before I bought the speakers I uset my Headphones and never experienced these kind of problems.
Any help to get on with this would be appreciated.

A:Sound stops working randomly after a while

First, if you installed a separate sound card, you must disable the on-board (RealTek) in the BIOS or they can conflict, and could even possibly cause the problem you are having.

Second, your "sound card", as listed in your specs is NOT the NVIDIA High Definition Audio, that is ONLY for HDMI audio.
Your sound card would be the SoundBlaster Audigy, if its still installed.

I'm having a problem with my sound when watching videos on GOM Player. While watching some videos the sound will begin to fade away and become quieter until eventually I cannot hear any sound at all. I have to exit out of GOM Player, then start it again for the sound to work.

I think it could also be an issue with GOM Player.

I've been able to watch some videos without any sound problems, but for other videos the sound always stops working after a few minutes. All of the videos are AVI files, and there doesn't seem to be any differences between them that would cause 1 to work but the other to not work.

Does anyone have some ideas of what the problem could be? My operating system is 32bit Windows XP if that helps.
 

A:GOM player sound stops working

If you other players work ok....try Kmplayer too then it would be a issue with Gom player...also maybe some of the AVI may be suspect also.

A:Sound Scheme Stops working

hello ,

this is just for starters

steps
--------

do you have a Windows Xp cd, not the restore cd's that come with some systems, the cd will have the Windows logo & 3D hollowgram/image on it

if you do not maybe you can barrow one from a friend/family member/co-worker as long as it is the same version that is on your system

if you have (Windows XP Home Ed. sp2 ) then the cd will have to be that / if you have a cd with (Windows XP Home Ed. )you will have to slipstream (SP2 ) onto a disk that you create

this also applies to (Windows XP Professsional )

http://www.helpwithwindows.com/Windo...p2-bootcd.html

now if you do have the Windows XP cd with sp2 please follow these steps

--------------------------------------------

performing a (sfc) system file checker

It is a scan that checks the core files & dlls of the (os) operating system and replaces them if they are corrupt or missing with the correct original version

start

#1 then select (run) , then press enter
a window will open
#2 type in ( cmd ) then press enter
another window will open
#3 type in ( sfc )then press enter
another window will open
#4 type in (sfc /purgecache) then enter / your pc will work like crazy / this helps in rebuiding the cache file (notice the space between (sfc & /)
#5 type in (sfc /scannow ) then press enter ( notice the space between the (sfc & / )

now a scan will start , have your (Windows XP software disk ready ) your pc may ask for this disc when it starts or during the scan( so you must sit with the pc while this scan functions ) , if it does then incert the cd into one of your cd/rom/player's , your pc will then reconnize it and continue , you will then have to minimize the splash screen for the cd to see the scan , when the scan is finished you will need to close the cd and all open windows , then remove the cd

you will then need to do a ( Disk Cleanup ) , then empty the caches & temp files thru the (Internet Options) , then do a defrag

restart your pc

then do a defrag again after the reboot

then get back to us

Mike

I'm using a computer built by a local tech guy with a monitor with built in speakers. Recently, the sound stops working in the middle of using the computer. When I reboot it, the sound works again. I read somewhere that flash content takes over the sound system and you have to reboot to get your sound back. Is there any truth to this? And what about Java, which I use for a chat room; can that do the same thing?

A:Sound suddenly stops working!!!

Hi GregCujo, and welcome to TSF.

Flash player is java based anyway so the answer is probably yes.

Try this fix and let us know if it solved your problem.

Update Java
Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update.
First remove the older versions:Download JavaRa and unzip it to your desktop.
Double-click on JavaRa.exe to start the program.
Click on Remove Older Versions to remove the older versions of Java installed on your computer.
Click Yes when prompted. When JavaRa is done, a notice will appear that a logfile has been produced. Click OK.
A logfile will pop up. Please save it to a convenient location.
Now let's download and install the newest version:Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 7.
Click on Windows XP/Vista/2000/2003 Offline and save the downloaded file to your desktop.
Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.
Reboot your computer.

I have a laptop running XP home edition and all of the sudden my sound died . I didnt install anything , no updates , nothing . I just shut down my computer and turned it back on one day to find the sound is completely gone . Ive been trying for hours and I cant put my finger on what could possibly be wrong .

If I try connect speakers to the laptop then the speakers make a very loud and obnoxious buzzing sound . My sound card is Realtek AC97 audio . If I go into my hardware properties then it claims that everything is working fine , which is obviously false . Please help

A:sound suddenly stops working .

Do you have the sound drivers, or can you download them from the manufacturer's website? If so, I'd uninstall the sound drivers completely, then re-install them to see if it clears it up.

A:Alienware M17x Sound stops working.

I don't know if it is hardware or software related. I would have thought the BIOS but  you tried that. Next time it happens check the Audio Service. Go to Start>Run and type "services.msc" (without quotes) then hit the 'Enter' key (or click 'ok'). The Services window will appear. Scroll down until you find "Windows Audio" towards the bottom of the list. Check that it is enabled, set to automatic, and running. If it isn't, double click on it and change the Startup type to Automatic, then click Start, Apply, and OK. If it stops in the future even when set to automatic then I would be suspicious of a problem with Windows itself.
That is all I can think of. Suggest that you post on the Alienware Club discussion board and be sure to tell them that you already have posted on the Laptop Audio board or else they might just send you back here. In the meantime you might get a better answer from someone else on this board.
en.community.dell.com/.../default.aspx
It will be helpful for them if you say the exact model name of your laptop if it is not  the original M17x, for example M17x R2, R3, or R4.

Okay well this happened like 2-3 weeks ago, i have an extremely annoying problem.. The sound of my computer would randomly stop working for some reason.. Not only that, but when i watch youtube the video or any video it won't load and it would literally pause or freeze.

To fix this i would have to disconnect/reconnect my headset or disable/enable my headset through the sound control panel; when i do this, it seems to fix everything, as the sound would come back and the videos would load back up and work normally again, but in 20min or 1hour the same problem would occur again and i would have to do the same process over and over again... Anyone has a solution for this weird phenomenon?

My OS is windows 8.1
And my headset is a Logitech H540

That's USB headphones, right ? Maybe your USB controller goes to "sleep" or headphones' driver itself. Change those power saving settings and see.

A:Sound stops working - must restart computer

I need a few more details. What sound device are you using? Headphones? Speakers that connect through 3.5mm jack? What is the USB audio device as listed by belarc? When does the sound stop working? Does it stop working while streaming a video? What are you doing when the sound stops working? 
 
As a good first step, first uninstall the sound drivers and software from Control Panel\add and remove programs\uninstall and then reinstall by downloading the newest version directly from dell's website: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/ProductSelector You can find the service tag generally on the top, side, or back of the desktop.
 
Because this is an older computer (I assume since it is running windows xp), I suggest you open the case, dust the computer out and while you have it open, inspect the motherboard for blown or bulging capacitors: https://www.google.com/search?q=blown+or+bulging+capacitors+motherboard&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=cR7ZU8zAB9amyASd34HABw&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAQ&biw=1272&bih=766

Occasionally the sound just stops working, no error message, no screech or and indication of any kind that the sound has quit other than the silence. There is nothing wrong in device manager.

I can get the sound back if I reboot my system. Weird thing is that sound fixes itself before the shutdown (plays the Windows exit tune). My issue is that I have to wait for a reboot and want to know if there is a way to reset the sound card without rebooting.

Vista 32 Ultimate, X-Fi card with all latest drivers installed. This has been happening for a long time with different driver installs so I don't believe the drivers are the issue.
 

A:Sound Stops Working for No Apparent Reason

Just answered my own question. I went into Control Panel/Sounds, etc. and chose Speakers/Properties than on the Advanced Tab attempted to change the default format. I received a message saying that the device is being used by another application. I selected Yes to continue and ran test. The speakers were working so I changed the default back and exited. I tried using a video that I had open in Firefox and still no sound and there was no sound for email notification either. I closed and restarted Firefox and went back to the video and the sound was working again. Apparently this is a problem with Firefox.

Hey Folks,

Started happening just recently and pretty interesting. I know I am due for a crash when my computer no longer auto-sleeps and my DAC (basically a USB soundcard to non audiophiles) will no longer output sound. What is interesting is that it does not actually crash unless I unplug the DAC from my USB hub and then plug it back in. Doing so causes an immediate BSOD. As far as I can tell the computer won't crash until I mess with the DAC (but no other option but a restart if I want sound.) Greatly appreciate the help!

I am becoming frustrated with this problem as my PC is no more than 2 months old.......(dell). i do not switch my PC off and each morning i get up and attempt to play media....say on bbc news......(picture and audio) it does not work. the media plays for a few seconds and then freezes and i never hear any sound. I have discovered that restarting the PC fixes this every time. It then works for the rest of the day.......

I am completely confused. Have looked at my drivers and it says they are all working fine plus i can see no problems with the sound under control panel....mind you i have basic knowledge. I have no different software on this new pc than i had on an older model and i never had such problems. i would appreciate some guidance as i have run out of ideas.......many many thanks

I think you should carefully check you sound card drivers for the latest updates. As I understood you have a built-in sound card. That type of problem is rather common and the reason is in the poor software. Good luck in your search!

When I have those two on, more LoL, my audio stutters or just won't work at all. I'll get problem with playback device on Skype.

Hi!
I use a dell XPS m1530 laptop with windows 7

Every time I use any VoIP software such as Skype or Starcraft2 voice chat, my system looses any ability to play any sound what so ever (even if minimize starcraft 2 and try playing some mp3 file)
This happens only until I hanging up the call in skype or disabling the Voice chat in starcraft2.

I think this problem started a few month ago when I connected a nokia bluetooth headset to use on skype.
I tried to remove the nokia headset from my bt devices, and even removed the bluetooth devices from the device manager, and still I think (not sure) windows is trying to use the bluetooth sound device every time I use VoIP.

any ideas?
 

A:Sound device stops working when using any VoIP software

Check start/control panel/sound.
On the communications tab,select do nothing and
click apply.
If the headset is a seperate audio device make sure
it is set to default communication device in playback
and recording.
You don't want it as default playback.
Make sure the headset is default in the voip software.

After about an hour or so of being on, my computer will stop playing audio. It seems to happen randomly, and only comes back on when I restart, but it will go out again afterwards.
I have my PC connected to a monitor via HDMI, and a digital audio cable from the PC to a stereo. Neither output will play sounds from the PC, but both they can still play from other sources with no problem. I tried checking the drivers in the control panel and nothing seems to be wrong there.
I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1.
Any assistance on this matter is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

This could be the dumbest question of the day, but does anyone know a way to have the sound windows plays at startup (or even shut down) be randomly picked from a list or directory? This way I could have more customization of my OS and put all those hilarious 20 second or less audio clips to good use. Its just an idea anyway

A:A Random Or Different Startup Sound File Every Time

I do not how to make the .wav file used at startup random.
However, if you would like to change the .wav file, go to:

Start > Control Panel > Sounds, Speach, Audio > Sounds and Audio Devices > Sounds tab

Under "Program Events" you can assign a sound to pretty much any Windows event.

Maybe you could create a program that will choose this .wav file randomly, sell it to Apple, and then that would insure that Microsoft would include this feature in their next version of Windows!

There are some pinball sounds included with Windows. If you want to use them, after selecting a Program Event, browse to C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Pinball. You can even preview the sounds. I have had a lot of fun with those.

My pc randomly reboots itself after a period of time. It usually happens when Im running about 3-4 IE browsers, AIM, and Outlook Express for a while. i thought it was my overclocked CPU that was the problem, so i disabled over heat turn-off in the BIOS. Could there be errors in my registry?

Athlon 2500+ XP overclocked to 3400+ (42 C at rest)
Abit NF7-S2 Motherboard
 

A:PC Reboots itself after being on for a period of time

That processor is seriously overclocked.

Overclocking reduces the lifespan of the hard ware and also overclocks the RAM and PCI bus, so have you tried not overclocking the system?

There is no point in turning off the overheating monitor in the BIOS if the processor isn't overheating, which it doesn't appear to be doing if its temperature is only 42 degrees.

I have a very idiotic problem in which i start the PC, play for 20 minutes and then the computer starts to load it self for no reason. The CPU usage is close to 98% so i can't play no more. Same thing if i restart the PC, it works like a charm for 20 minutes then it slow's down.

Any ideas?

Hi all.

I am currently running Combofix on my laptop, however I am a bit worried about how long it is taking.

It at present only states:

Deleting Files/Folders:

"C:\Program Files\JavaCore\JavaCore.exe"
"C:\Program Files\JavaCore\UnInstall.exe"
"C:\Program Files\network monitor\netmon.exe"
"C:\WINDOWS\dobe~1\msdtc.exe"
"C:\WINDOWS\dobe~1\?dobe\"
"C:\WINDOWS\system32\msnav32.ax"
"C:\WINDOWS\system32\zxdnt3d.cfg"

It has been like this for 15 minutes, should I be worried?

Hello, I'm sure Shawn is aware of this setting, and I'm sure he'll eventually read this, and can link me to the post to how to do it =)

I have my computer set up to when it is idle after 5 minutes, it will turn the screen blank for 3 seconds then it will show the lock screen. Sometimes I'm at the computer desk busy doing something non-computer related, and all of a sudden I notice in the corner of my eye that the screen goes blank. I had the computer set up to whenever that happened I grab the mouse real quick and move it to come right back to whatever was showing on the screen before it goes to the lock screen. Reason why I want to catch it right in time is so I don't have to re-type the password at the lock screen. There is a setting somewhere that lets me do that. Where is it again?

It may be having trouble waking up.

I am not able to find any event legs showing conflicts, failures anywhere around the time I notice my sound has stopped working, making it that much more difficult to resolve. As of right now I can reboot and sound will come back for an unknown length of time. Sometimes a few days to a few hours. Since I haven't been able to point to something causing this to try and figure it out myself, I'm not sure what additional information I can provide to get help in return, so ask and I will provide what I can. Thanks.
