Preferred Solution: No sound on start-up, Win8 needs time to output sound

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: No sound on start-up, Win8 needs time to output sound

For start up sound go to personalize>sounds>at bottom of box place a check for "Play Windows Startup sound. With a laptop you probably are using realtek HD sound driver... you could look in task manager and see if it is turned on at startup, also in event viewer>windows logs>system and look at the time when you booted and see if there are any audio errors.

Hi guys,

Problem - Installed Win 7 Pro x32 this week, and i want to output sound on my monitor and tv at the same time. I have a monitor hooked up via VGA and a TV via HDMI on the same graphics card.

At present only way to change sound output is using the playback devices control to switch when needed which is a pain i must say. Had this working on vista but cant remember how. (fluke i think)

Any help appreciated! cheers

A:output sound at the same time on 2 displays

You should be able to disable a monitor's audio via the buttons on your monitor.
VGA does not have an audio signal, HDMI does.

I have a rather cheap and poor quality Trust surround system and a rather awesome View Quest SonicDock While my current best computer was away being repaired I wired up all the speakers in a rather complicated manner which enabled sets have of I'd through at 2 same sound time like to speakers output me to have c sub the two front side speakers and the SonicDock output simultaneously at maximum volume However the read side speakers never worked with that cabling and I thought they had both died until I got this computer back and connected the surround properly Why do I want the audio to output through two sets of speakers at the same time The subwoofer from the surround set is awful The SonicDock produces some literally desk-shaking bass So the computer has the following audio ports rear in blue out green mic pink c sub orange rear black side grey front panel mic pink headphones green Basically I don't WANT surround My room isn't big enough and the speakers can't I'd like to have sound output through 2 sets of speakers at same time be strategically positioned I just want the maximum sound output I e I don't want WMP to just be sending audio to the front speakers I want sound to come out of all the speakers I'd like to have sound output through 2 sets of speakers at same time even if it's just stereo sound but through all speakers I've fiddled with all the Realtek HD Audio manager settings and can't get it to work how I want it to When I tried stacking earphone splitters and connecting the four speaker cables into that stack and plugged into the rear green out port it didn't work as intended I think what I'd like to do is to get the system to send louder output to the SonicDock as I can hear it if the system is on the highest volume but then the surround is too loud as I have the surround volume on highest so I can just use the media center remote for volume

A:I'd like to have sound output through 2 sets of speakers at same time

First off, I use a Trust 5.1 surround system and I bought it knowing that I was getting what I paid for :I

But on to your problem, with Realtek it is easily possible to output to two sets of speakers at once (as long as your dock has a single 3.5mm for input).
Unfortunately I don't have Realtek anymore since I bought my X-Fi so I'm going purely from memory here. In the Realtek control panel (accessible through Windows control panel), there is the ability to toggle front panel audio concurrently with your normal, rear port audio. Luckily Google has a far better memory than I.

i want to output sound through my digital output and through my front jacks at the same time, i.e while watching a movie through my digital output (monitor i.e video extended to my tv) and playing a game at the same time (game on my LCD), with sound coming out my front sound jack for the game. so basically in a nut shell, i want to watch movies and play games at the same time, while the respective sound comes through different outputs.

A:how do you output sound through digital and front jack at same time

I don't think you can currently do that with Vista (I certainly can't, anyway).

I find that I have to reconfigure my laptop every time I want to play a DVD through the HDMI port and then reconfigure it again when I've finished. I've seen many others posting about the same issue.

I am getting a laptop. Right now I am deciding between regular "High Definition Audio 2.0" and a "ExpressCard Sound Blaster X-Fi Laptop Sound Card with Wireless Receiver Bundle". The latter is 134 dollars more. Would the latter make the output of sound better on external speakers. Say if you're a DJ, and you use the laptop, would the sound coming out of the speakers at those high volumes be much better if you have the better soundcard? Or does it not have any effect on the output sounds? Thanks!

A:How can I get sound output from sound card when streaming video?

Hello green,

You get sound from your microphone? I don't think I am understanding. Sound should come from your sound card. You plug the speakers into the back of the computer and into the sound card (green jack). The mic receives sound. My mic is USB so it doesn't use any jack other than the USB port, but if you use the sound card, it goes into the purple jack

Do you have the audio driver installed? This should be right: http://support.acer.com/product/defa...x?modelId=2192

A:Gigabyte HDMI output to Yamaha receiver - no sound output

As you have a separate video card, its capabilities should determine how the video works, not the motherboard. The video is routed to the video card.

If you had some type of integrated Video on the motherboard then the motherboard's specs would apply. For example, I have an Intel i7 3770 CPU and this model has built in Intel HD4000 video which is routed to motherboard video connectors and thus the motherboard would determine how the video is distributed. However, I'm using a separate video card and thus that determines how video is distributed.

Hello everyone,after using Windows 7 Ultimate on my laptop for almost 2 years I decided to upgrade to Windows 8. The first day it was working fine,no problems at all. The other day I disconnected my USB mouse and it would keep on playing the disconnect sound, however, I solved that issue. Recently since yesterday whenever I would start my laptop and login,the windows start up sound won't play. It plays once I connect any one usb device to the laptop, but it will play the default usb connected sound with the latter devices. I ticked the 'play windows sound on start up' at the sound properties. Some help would be really appreciated.

A:Windows 8 start up sound plays at the wrong time.

What sound driver do you have installed? If you just have the Microsoft installed generic HD Audio Codec instead of the correct sound driver from your PC vendor that could be the problem.

Also, please fill in the "My System Specs" so we know what hardware you have and what we are dealing with.

A:Sound samples before I start ripping - wouldn't want to waste my time

A "wav" file is a full fidelity file. Any compressed type file, e.g. MP3, FLAC or whatever is "something less than full fidelity". How much less depends on the compression. I don't know of anyplace that has a comparision between different file formats. The best option would be to make them yourself and then compare to see if you want to use one of the compressed formats or stay with the full fidelity wav file.

Another thing to consider, if you convert a wav file to some compressed format, you cannot recover the full fidelity if you convert it back to a wav file; it will be at the fidelity of the compressed file.

The "best" option obviously is the wav format.

I have a computer based recording studio.

Hello, I used to have Vista on this computer and didn't have audio problems. I've upgraded to Windows 7 and use the latest drivers available for my sound card (Striker 7.1). I have also tried not using these drivers and instead using a USB sound card (Sennheiser that comes with one of their headsets).

My problem is that, some time after booting up my computer, the audio starts skipping/glitching every ~30 seconds (if not more). This will usually happen with almost 100% frequency after the computer goes into sleep mode. A reboot fixes this for some time and then it starts over. This happens with all audio sources (moves in VLC, music in iTunes, youtube, etc.)

I have absolutely no idea what could be causing this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A:Sound skips after some time (tried diff. sound cards)

This is apparently a fairly common problem in windows 7. Just google these forums for 'audiodg.exe', and you'll see tons of other people reporting the exact same thing.

I have the same problem and my solution ended up being to write a cmd script I can launch that runs

Code:
net stop audiosrv
net start audiosrv
This shuts audiodg.exe down and starts it back up. Sad part is I have to run this anywhere from every 10 to 30 minutes. Extremely annoying.

Hi!

I broke my Headphones port so I cannot use it anymore. But I'm a musician and need it crucially. So I thought to use one of other two ports (FOR HEADPHONE SOUND OUTPUT SIGNAL) I have left: one for Line in and one for Mic in.

My sound card is High Definition Audio (at least I see this in System->Devices).

Can I do this with any type of program or something else? How can I redirect headphone output signal onto Mic in or Line in ports? Thanks to all people who might help!

P.S. saw a lot of people looking for how to record their output using mic in. My case is different, I just want to use one of other two ports like sound outputs instead of my broken headphone port.

A:Redirect sound output port to sound input port

Surprised that you can get much of anything done with the default Windows audio driver, that provides about just enough functionality to to get sound. That is why it is show as a "high definition audio device". You need to install the proper driver for it to begin with and then there might be the possibility of jack assignment. Without it though it won't happen.

And no we can't tell you what you need for a sound driver as your specs don't list what your motherboard is, which is needed to tell you which driver assuming you are using onboard sound.

Are you sure "Creative 2.0" is your PC's sound device? Normally its something such as RealTek, IDT, Conexent, etc.

Install your PC vendor's sound driver (the Vista/Win 7 drivers work) as a first step.

Hi,

I'm a college student with a desktop computer. Whenever I come home, I leave my speakers at school.

I used to have Windows Vista. When I'd come home, I could listen to music without headphones or speakers. In other words, sound would come from my sound card.

I now have Windows 7, which will only play sound when I have headphones or speakers. How can I enable Windows to let sound play from my sound card when I don't have any other means of output?

A:Sound Output

Normally, desktops do not have speakers. If yours does, it's not the usual configuration on a desktop. Best to checkwith HP to see what you need to do, as you may need some special HP audio software to get it to work.

Boot into Setup (Bios) and make sure the onboard Audio is Enabled. At bootup you should get the new hardware wizard. You may need to download the driver from the Motherboard manufacturer If you don't know the model # of the motherboard then download Speccy and it will tell you the info you need.

Usually when any piece of audio electronics has that irritating buzzing sound with faint music in background a physical ground is missing or a leak to ground has occurred.
You may have developed a problem in your audio card or with external connections.
Make sure all you physical connections to the card are good.
You may also want to remove the card from you PC and clean all the contacts on the card and reinsert.
After all above is tried you may want to remove the audio card from device manager and reinstall all your drivers.
If reinstalling and cleaning all contacts does not solve the problem you may have a defective card.

Hi all.

I am using Nvidia HDA as my sound system with my screens, recently the new patch (March 1st) for windows solved my screens from blacking out, however, when I switch on, the sound changes to the other screen. (Seems to be once every day)

I have found a workaround which is keep everything enabled and it should set itself to default.

Still annoying however, I disable everything else that I am not using, to prevent conflicts.

Hi all, New to this forum so apologies if this has already been raised. Recently upgraded from xp to win7. Have since updated to latest realtek drive. I can't get sound output to a Sony MD via front jack which used to work before the os upgrade. Even if I plug in a headphone I get no sound other than from the speakers. Speaker sounds are great as before. With the front panel sockets pink (mic) green (headphone) I used to be able to plug into either and realtek would automatically select the right source. Spkr config is stereo, No sound fx or room correction and default format is CD.
Any ideas anyone?

This issue is hard to explain, maybe there is a term for it, I'm not sure. When listening to mp3s through my computer (with headphones) running vista, for some reason the computer tries to make up for loud parts by making the overall volume softer. It sounds really irritating listening to the volume vary every time there is a loud part to the song.

This problem seems not to happen on my XP installation, just Vista (dual-booted comp).

It's called "Volume Leveling." As far as I know, thats not a Vista feature. Does your soundcard have its own software that could be enabling it?

I've just done a clean install of windows 7 x64 onto a new hd, all drivers are installed including the sound driver but I get no sound output to the speakers.

The soundscard is an onboard Realtek ALC662 HD Audio codec, I've tried the Microsoft driver as well as downloaded the latest Realtek and Gigabyte Azalia drivers. They all install fine but produce no output.
I have also tried installing an old Creative Audigy2 PCI card, this also installs fine but produces no output.

I had previously had Windows XP installed on this hardware and sound worked fine. I have also plugged the speakers into an adjacent system and they work fine. Plugging my old HD back in and booting XP the sound works fine.

It looks like a Windows7 issue, anyone have any ideas on what to try next?

A:Windows 7 x64 - No sound output

Some realtek sound drivers are known to be unreliable. You may have to try mutiple different sets of drivers until you find one that works for you. One of the best ways to do this is to go to your OEM website and download their drivers. If you built the computer yourself, just go to the Realtek website.

Hi folks.

I really cannot seem to be able to work this one out...

When I'm playing music or audio that I've recorded etc, I get a bits of static here and there.
I have on board sound card, a Delta audiophile card and an external USB sound card and it seems to do it on all of them and I've tried 2 different sets of speakers and headphones. Odd thing is, it will record files without any static at all. I tried some recorded samples on a Mac today, and they were fine.

Any suggestions?

I'd be really grateful, thanks!

EDIT - Sorry, I forgot to say: The operating system is irrelevant and so is drivers. The same happens on Windows 7, Windows Xp, Debian Linux, Ubuntu, Fedora and an old version of Knoppix

Short answer ... probably not.

However, there are some high quality dacs on the market that will connect to your computer by USB or Firewire and deliver mind blowing good sound... There's a lot of them and at a very wide range of prices, so do some google searches....

But do let me caution you... unless you have exceptionally good audio gear the audible improvements are likely to be lost to plastic speaker boxes, weak power supplies and poorly designed sub-woofers....

DAC vs Soundcard on high end gear such as McIntosh Audio... "WOW"
DAC vs Soundcard on $199 home theater in a box... "Why did I waste my money".

Hi. i was just wondering if it was possible to have more than one set of speakers play audio at the same time. For instance i have a set of speakers, but also have some on my monitor, i can only use one set by changing the settings in the audio properties i.e to desktop speakers. Also when you plug headphones or them speakers which go into portable cd players the sound mutes from the primary speakers and only plays on the set of speakers you plug in. Hope ive not confused anyone here. Just thought there might of been a setting allowing you to use more than one audio output at once.

A:Onboard Sound Output gone very low

Welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

If you feel your on-board sound chip is failing, you can always purchase a decent add in sound card and turn off the on-board.

I can see your volume controls are all maxed out, I should advise you that certain software such as Windows Media Player has its own built in volume control.

You should make sure you have adjusted those controls as well as your on-board chips volume properties.

Hello,

This may seem like a vary basic question as it is, but it's kinda annoying and I really don't have a solution.

I have two really nice speakers, but the way my computer is set up, any way I try my left speaker ends up on the right side of my room and my right speaker ends up on the left side, and it impossible for me to switch it.

So I would like to know if there is an adapter, or maybe even a software which will reverse the sound coming out of each speaker?

Thanks.

Hi all, so I've been trying to figure out what's going on with this acer 5520 amd 2ghz, 3gb laptop.

Basically this is what I've checked and done: drivers updated, bios updated/re installed re seated all internal components I.e: cd drive, ram, hdd . Fresh install of vista, win 7 and finally xp pro. Still no sound on any of them. Now I noticed the cd/dvd drive isn't picked up in my computer but it does open and spin a disk as if its pre loading the cd.

Sound is very intermittent when booting up the machine 9/10 it doesn't work.

Any idea's?

Thanks in advance

A:intermittent sound output :s

Are there any motherboard chipset drivers for this unit? If there are, install them, restart the PC and then reinstall the Acer sound drivers (not the sound chip vendor sound drivers) and see if that helps. I had an Acer 7720 model and I tried the generic RealTek (the sound chip on the 7720) and they did not work correctly. I installed the Acer supplied drivers and no more sound problems.

Also in Vista/Win 7 make sure your "speakers" are set as the default "Playback" device in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel. I don't remember how that is setup in XP (remember this is a Windows 7 forum, not a Windows XP forum).

I am running Windows Vista Ultimate with Realtek HD Audio Manager installed and was using regular headphones in the front jack. I decided to plug a microphone into the front mic jack. When I did the sound cut off for the head phones. If I go into "playback devices" and Speakers "properties" then the "levels" tab, and unmute the "front mic" I can hear the microphone, but I cannot hear any other sound from the computer. Not even the ping when you select the volume.

How do I restore original sound options? Or if you have run into this before how do I run the mic and headphone at the same time?

A:Selective sound output

I don't know why it worked this time but I set the default back to "speakers" and the sound kicked back in. I had done it before but this time it worked. Problem solved.

Hi triwa,

If you right click on your sound icon in the tray icon area (bottom right hand side) and click Playback devices, what devices can you see in there.

I'm assuming of course you're using Win7/8.

If you've reinstalled the drivers without error as you said, you should have some working devices in there...

Cheers.

Greetings, all.

My thanks in advance for reading through my post. Your help with this issue is very much appreciated.

Here's my problem:
I have one computer, and two places that I want the sound to come from; the input on the back of my PC Tower, and the input on the back of one of my PC monitors. My computer recognises the multiple inputs available, but it seems to only allow me to select one output source instead of two. Can I make my computer produce its sound through two inputs instead of just one? If so, how?

I look forward to reading your answers. Many thanks.

Going by the DevID in that screen shot it is the Dell version of the Live 5.1, which doesn't work with the regular Live drivers. For that card (at least on XP) you need the one here,

He has reinstalled windows and the problem has lessened (to the degree mentioned above). This just came out of the blue a week or two ago, it's never happened before and he has no new hardware in.

I have used Magix audio cleaning lab for many years for recording sound on my PC however since upgrading to Windows 7 this program will not record sound and I have been forced to use Audacity which is much less user friendly.

After investigation I have found the problem is that Windows 7 outputs sound as WASAPI and that Magix software does not support this format.

Is it possible to chnage the sound output to MME which Magix can and does handle?

I have a TV that is already hooked up to my PC screens output and a 5.1 surround sound receiver/system downstairs that I wish I could hook my computers normal sound output up to with the single s/pdif cord. I want to use it to watch non-dvd movies (avi, vcd).

I recently bought a Hercules Game Theatre XP and Ive come to find out that you can't really output the PCs normal wave out to the S/PDIF because an ac3 stream would have to be created. Is there anyway to create this stream and output it via the power-dvd s/pdif filter?? This could possibly be implemented in zoomplayer as it supports sound re-routing and what not.

If anyone knows any software work around of how to output PC wave to ac3 stream OR any hardware card that DOES do this....please lemme know!

Hello,
I have a Toshiba Laptop c660 with windows 8 professional installed. I can`t make the jack for headphones to work. The jack is not broken because it works on Ubuntu.

I installed the driver for my soundboard. Didn`t worked. I unistalled it and i let windows chose the best option for me but still didn`t worked.

What i have to do to make it work ? What should i post here ?

A:Win8 64 bit no sound on headphones jack

First, the sound driver from the PC vendor, Toshiba in this case, is the preferred and full featured driver. The generic Windows installed HD Audio codec is only a basic function driver.

Toshiba Satellite C660 Windows 8 Drivers | Toshiba Drivers | Satellite, Satellite Pro, Portege, Equium, Qosmio, Tecra, Libretto Downloads

I see this has RealTek sound. Many RealTek drivers include a RealTek HD Audio Manager and depending on what Toshiba includes this could include the configuration of the headset jack.

Has anyone run across a utility which will automatically adjust the gain on the Windows 7 audio output. The mixing functions built into Windows are not intended to be sophisticated and most users are just used to manually turning up or down the system volume when they switch among applications. A utility to standardize the output gain of course it's not complicated say in the desktop audio editing world.

Just curious?

Depending on your built-in audio system, Win-7 employs a "Loudness Equalization" audio enhancement.

Right Click MS speaker icon in task bar, select playback devices, select your default playback device (speakers) then click on the properties button, look under the "enhancements" tab. You may have to scroll down.

So im in a bit of trouble here with my computer
I was mucking around with my wireless adapter and for some reason took it out and plugged it back in while the computer was still on, and the metal bracket where the antenna plugs into touched my motherboard which caused my computer to reset itself.
The adapter is fine but now my computer has lost the ability to output sound. Ive tried all the jacks with my speaker system, and also with a set of headphones but nothing works. The volume control still shows that sound should be playing but theres no output.

Is there anything i can do here or did i screw up something on my motherboard permanently?

A:less /unsatisfied sound output of realtek alc 892

I would first look for updated sound drivers and try them. If the drivers were specifically for XP that can be a problem due to Vista/Win 7 handling some audio functions differently. Look for a Win 7 or at a minimum Vista sound drivers.

Hello everybody,

I hope everybody is doing all right and much better than me.

I wanted to ask something about audio.
How can I make the sound coming from my speakers like they are coming from microphone?
I guess you could say that how can make output coming like input?
I want to add a video entry to a journal, I can add the video, but I want the sound from the video added to the entry too.
I couldn't find a way to do that because it only records the sounds from microphones.
Another question would be how can make a song on my computer recorded as an audio journal?
What are the ways to do that?

Thanks.

A:Showing Output Sound as Input

I don't mind saying I'm confused. Where is the video coming from and where/what is the journal method of recording? Seems to me you could use Windows Live Movie Maker. As far as an audio journal, the Sound Recorder under Accessories should to it. You'll need a microphone plugged in and make sure it's assigned as a recording device.
