Why does my WP silence alerts when I listen to music via headphones?

Q: Why does my WP silence alerts when I listen to music via headphones?

I like to listen to music but I don't want to miss text, mail or call alerts, my WP immediately mutes all alerts. I've looked for settings to change this but can't seem to find any. Not sure which model it is (is a work phone and we call it the guvnor) but It's the net version of the old 1520, like a phablet.

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.)

First, I wanted to listen to a clip on Amazon and I clicked "listen" for Windows Media Player and then another time for Real Player, since I have BOTH. All it would do was save it to my computer (entitled "hurl") and then I couldn't open it. It didn't even give the option of opening it--that was "grayed out."

Also, is there ANYwhere that I can just download a song without taking out a bank loan or giving them my firstborn? I went to Yahoo radio, too, and went through the sign-in procedure and then it wouldn't complete. The button just did nothing. I don't plan to do a lot of downloading music. I just want to get a song occasionally.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hope I'm posting this in the right forum.

This is probably a total newbie question but for the life of me I haven't been able to figure it out. I sometimes like to listen to my audio CDs with headphones plugged into the jack in the front of my CD drives. I disabled digital audio CD for both drives just so I could listen with headphones on. Winamp and Windows Media Player have no problem with playing audio CDs, but I can't get any sound in my headphones when I use foobar (can't get it in VLC either btw). There's sound coming out of the speakers but nothing in the headphones. How do I get foobar to play analog?

Oh, and I'm using foobar2000 v.0.9

Hi there,

This morning when i started up my computer i found that the small "volume" icon on my taskbar had a red cross by it and it said "no audio output is installed". I then removed my audio files through add/remove hardware which were then automatically reinstalled on reboot thanks to Vista.

My problem is my though i now receive sound through my laptop (built in speakers), when i plug in any headphones the audio still comes through the speakers and not through the headphones.

Any help on this matter would be appreciated.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A205-S764 Notebook with Vista.

Many thanks,

What would be something to check, if you can listen to cds but not music online. Whether we open windows media player, or browse to a favorite radio station's site to listen live, we can't listen. There are no errors, it connects, buffers and looks to be playing, but there's no sound. The speakers are on and work, because we can stop and listen to a cd. I don't see any mute that is on.

Anyone have any ideas??

Hey guys, I am going on holiday in early June and am looking for a way to listen to music while I'm in the pool as I plan to spend a lot of time doing so.
The way I can see it is that I have two options:

Buy a waterproof case and waterproof headphones
buy a waterproof MP3 player all-in-one.
Obviously each option has it's flaws - otherwise I wouldn't be there.
Even if I buy a waterproof case how can I be sure that even though there is a waterproof case, where it contacts with waterproof earphones will be waterproof as 'waterproof' to some sellers just means rain-proof.
The problem with the all in ones like the Sony Waterproof Walkman is that they are very expensive for very little space, the 4GB alone being £50 and 8GB is £80.

Does anyone have experience in the matter, anything they can recommend, preferably I'd like to use my phone in a case for my 32GB MicroSD card, but whatever works I guess.

Cheers guys.

OS Windows XP Pro. I copied music from an old computer and pasted it on the new computer for my son. As long as the flash drive is inserted, he can listen to the music. (Even though the flash drive is empty.) When the flash drive is removed and he tries to listen to the music it is prompting him to connect to the internet, and he has no internet. We took the flash drive to my house with 3 albums on it, they showed up with the same prompt to connect to the internet, even with the flash drive inserted. What might we be doing wrong? The files are "wma" files.

Thanks, Peggy

A:Can't listen to music from flash drive

Internet Explorer /Tools /Internet Options / Connections

Make sure you select 'Never dial a connection' and Apply

In Windows Media Player
select Now Playing at the top, close and open again.

Sometimes if you have clicked on Media Guide, I've found it seems
to stick there, (until you select as above) and tries to open the Internet.

But the new computer should not be accessing the flash drive if the music
has been copied over. Clicking on any WMA file (standard windows media file)
should open Windows Media Player.

In the Player open Tools / Options / File Types and put a tick in each box.

Just trying the obvious for the moment.

Several things of note. First it is absolutely essential that you update to Service Pack 3 because come July 10th XP with Service Pack 2 will no longer be supported. You need some serious updating and it may be a central reason you are experiencing issues..

Second, before you do the above there is a very strong possibility you are still infected. Go to our Virus and Malware Removal forum and read the 8 Step sticky. Follow it step by step -- don't skip any of the steps. When you finish post on that forum with the required logs attached.

Third, since you can boot into Safe Mode there is a good chance your issue is driver related, but unless the above isn't attempted you won't be able to diagnose properly.

Fourth, as a side note, you might want to consider another gig of RAM if your motherboard is designed to do so. XP and two gigs is a good combination.

Fifth, you mention both Avira and Avast. Are both of these installed? Please tell us all the security software you have installed and running in real time protection.

Good luck.

Hello. I have a simple Acer Aspire netbook with Realtek Audio Manager. I currently use USB headphones (due to a bad connection in the standard headphone jack). Of course the audio manager is very simplified, but I still managed to mess something up...I was listening to music and, while doing so, clicked on "Set Default Device". Immediately the sound via headphones ceased, and I'm not able to simply click again to undo what I did. Any and all feedback is appreciated...Thanks...

Find audio that's in Mono, not Stereo. If the right side is still louder when playing something that is in Mono, then there could be something wrong with the headphones.

I have an Inspiron 15R 5521 and just recently my laptop decided it doesn't want to recognize my headphones. I updated my Laptop to Windows 10 to see if that would do anything, it didn't. I updated the audio drive, also did nothing.

Hello. Test the audio driver to find out if the driver is causing the problem, by switching between the Realtek audio driver and the Windows native audio driver. You have to have a Realtek driver installed to use this test.
1. Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" and right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked.7. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio" (the native driver).8. Click "Next".9. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 10. Restart the laptop if prompted. If not prompted, you might not need to restart.[To get back to the Realtek driver, do it again but reverse the names in steps 2 and 7.]If you only have the symptoms with one of the drivers, then the other is at fault. If you have the same symptoms with both audio drivers, then it is very probably not a driver issue.  It could be in the hardware -- either the laptop or the headphones.
This was a known issue with the Inspiron 15R 5521 model when the Realtek driver was installed. That driver was for Windows 7 & 8. The solution was to install the previous version, If you think your headphone issue is caused by the driver, you could try installing the version, using Win7 compatibility mode.

Hi there,
When I use headphones with my Surface Pro (Win 8) I cant hear the voices in my videos - the background music/sound effects are just too loud.

How can I fix this? I have tried using the Win 8 Video player as well as VLC Player and I still get the same issue.

I have tried the headphones on my iPhone and have no problems.

It has been a long time since i've used a Windows computer (usually have a Mac) so sorry if this is a silly question.

Thanks in advance

A:Voice not loud with headphones - background music too loud

You cou;d try using Winamp as it has an equalizer. Most DVDs the sound track and effects are pumped up compared to dialog. It drives me crazy, but short of demuxing, fixing the audio yourself then remuxing, trying to boost the voice frequencies is about all you can do.

Hi all, just in the middle of a new build and want to move my current rig down stairs as a media center so I was wondering what the best fans are out there for sound levels. At the mo I have a H80 cpu liquid series cooler with 2 stock fans, I have 3x120mm Coolermaster sickle flow blue case fans and 1x140mm blue case fan and I want to change all 6 for something super super SUPER quiet
Whats the best 120mm fans out there for almost stealth like volume ? (not fussed about the 140mm fan as its almost silent)
Thanks for any info,

A:Silence is golden :P

OK peopleyou have helped solve my download problem. Now my sound has stopped working!!! I am hoping these are teething troubles of a relatively new computer plus I have not yet heard good things about Vista, but I am stuck with it. Any way, the sound issue, this problem is affecting both accounts and when I go into "manage audio devices" on one hand it says that the speakers are working normally and then in a different place it is trying to tell me that the jack is not plugged in ( I can assure you it is!!). Nothing has been muted or had the volume turned down.

With sincere apologies to Simon & Garfunkle.

The sound card worked until I was forced to reformat the hard drive and re-install Win98SE. The system is an AT&T (yup, I'm the guy that has the only one they made, I think) Globalyst 640 with 96 MB and a Pentium (no Roman numeral) 100.

The only thing I could find on the card was "Crystal 4289 PCI". Plug and Pray detects something but it won't tell me what it is other than "Other Device" with no driver.

I'm an OK smart guy with a regressive computer gene. I have checked the other posts with "sound" in them and none of them seemed to be appropriate to my situation.

So, in the mortal words of Mr. T, "Pitty the fool" and help me out here. The reward I offer is my undying awe.

Hey everyone, I've been very angry and dissapointed lately.
The fact is, my computer is extremely loud, something is screaming when its running.
I am led to believe its my cpu fan, because when i turn it myself, i can hear it grind a little.

So, I was wondering if you guys here had any tips on making my rig quieter.
Anything will help,
Thanks in advance.

Edit: Or if its hopeless, could someone recommend a good socket 478 cooler?
(I think zalmans are too big for the mobo.)

Water cool it. Nothing quieter and as effective.
Corsair make 'em as do ASETEK. I'm using a Corsair w/c setup atm to cool a o/c P4. The Asetek unit is far better tho, higher flo rates and double the cooling. Google them as I'm in OZ and you are (I assume) in the States so can't supply links.

AVG isn't too good at virus detection so it's still very possible your PC is infected with something, but we can't help you with that on this forum - some bright spark may give you bad advice and make the matter worse.

No peripherals nor O/S yet installed.

When I power up (to see if there is video output from the mobo), the fans come on, but no video, no beep.

Even without a CD or HDD, there should be video output and beeps from the mobo.

Any ideas appreciated as what might be problem? Would have thought maybe dead mobo, but the fans turn on.

Top Security Firm RSA Tries to Silence Blog.

RSA security, one of the top security firms in the country, has sent takedown notices to a blogger and his hosting company in an effort to silence his discussion of a vulnerability found on a bank web site that RSA helps monitor, according to the blogger.

The firm has accused the blogger of trademark infringement — a common tactic of companies like Wal-Mart and Farmers Insurance Group to silence criticism — and of running a “fraudulent” web site that misleads the bank’s customers.

What's up with RSA??? The blogger has a real point!

A:Silence vs. noise in a power supply?

An EPS version is normally meant for servers, where reliability is the main concern, and it will probably have been tested just that little bit more.
Their noise-levels appear identical.
The 2-fan version has that extra bit of safety built in, if one fan breaks down.
Either version will do great on your PC, as you will have plenty of reserve.
The 550w is slightly exaggerated, and is only PEAK-power, not sustained power.
As a rule of thumb, calculate your PCs powerneeds, then add at least 30% on top of that, so your PSU need not run at maximum performance.
Calculate here:

Given the choice, I would go for the EPS-version.

I was helping a friend by installing a hard drive into his computer. I unplugged my pentiumII and used my plugs to plug his in. No problems. When I was done, I plugged the power back into my computer and hit the power on switch. Since my box is open, I could see the green lights flicker on the video card, hard drive and front of machine, but then nothing. No power at all. It repeats if I unplug, then plug back in.
I tried unplugging the fan, cdrom, diskette drive in case it was taking too much power. Nothing. Do you think by coincidence the power supply is bad??

Putting the parts together on a soundblaster 16 card. Did the drivers from the CD. Volume speaker icon is up w/ no checkmarks. Downloaded a new Winamp program and got the message it was installed ok. Speakers tested in the motherboard jack and in the sound card jack (numerous x's).

Control panel,multimedia recognizes the soundblaster 16. Went to start/programs/acess./creative mixer to review all volume settings and etc.

Do not get the "Rooti-toot-toot" on Windows 98 startup.(?) The Winamp program has never given me a problem in any other computer I've built.

Shouldn't I get the Windows' music through the speakers when they are plugged into the motherboard regardless of the sound card. There might be a jumper issue on the card(?). Any clues?

Hi All,
Have compiled a digital ripped playlist, using WMP, from my CD collection based on an OOP vinyl-only release.
Is it at all possible to add more silence between two of the ripped songs in particular?
If so, how?
I ask because, on the vinyl-only release, there is more silence between said particular songs as there is a change of pace. On the digital ripped playlist this silence is markedly shorter and really does unsettle the pacing to the point where it's distracting and disappointing.
All the songs are available for download but not in non-lossy format, AFAIK. The ripped playlist is for personal enjoyment only - for the memories.

It then moves to a black screen which after a few seconds fades out to an even darker black. Then nothing happens. I have/am trying to run the repair tool via CD boot of my Win7 disk but it is incredibly sluggish. I've been waiting to even see the repair tool for an hour each time before I get frustrated and retry. Also I cannot enter safe mode via spamming F8.

Just to be able to switch tracks and get handsfree option. Otherwise i don't believe good quality earbuds from Sony would be able to provide handsfree and track switching. One guy recommended Sony MDR E829V, but since they are not in-ear earbuds, i found similar ones called Sony MDREX36V which are silicone earbuds and have in-line control.

Now question:

They have in-line remote and if i will solder them with old ones which have song switcher remote, will i have 2 remotes on one cable in the end?

I simply want to listen to MP3 files that are stored on a DVD disc. I just tried opening it in my computer and was hoping to copy the files to my computer from the DVD disc.

I tried to play it in WMP but says I am missing the Codec. This is my work puter and I don't have any DVD software installed. Is there a way I can access these files? Any help?

Thank you much.

Hey guys You know how Device? Mic USB to - Listen in USB Mic - Listen to Device? W you have an option to check off quot Listen to Device quot when looking at microphone properties and by doing so it plays the sound directly through your desktop speakers Well my question is how does one accomplish this in Windows XP I have a webcam setup but I would like to listen to the sound directly Preferably without having to run any software I can tell you my purpose if it helps I am using a webcam as a baby monitor I use Flash media Encoder and Justin tv to stream it The nursery is only a piece of plywood away from my computer so it goes right through Now I can play both video and audio through the browser when playing the feed in the browser But there is a delay So in Windows all I need to do is play the sound directly through the speakers and that way I don't have the problem of the sound being delayed Considering the video at night is useless because it's dark I'm not worried about that delay And during the day we can hear things fine so we can look over to the computer and see what we heard quite funny really Anyway like I said I'm trying to play the sound of the microphone directly over the computer speakers Does anyone know how to accomplish this

A:USB Mic - Listen to Device?


Older sound cards had two sets of input output controls. One for input and one for recording. You were able to turn on the mic and speakers at the same time. Wasn't very useful as you always got feedback. Don't know about your sound card but have a look. Maybe you won't have the feedback if you can get the mic far enough away.

Good Luck, jim

hi there

I think it is time that the computer should be able to PERFECTLY understand the human through speech and respond back to him, like in movies (iron man even flubber ).
I used the speech recognition software in vista but it still needs loads of improvement.

So i was wondering if any of you know about any software which helps in doing this, or atleast something that can make the PC have cool conversations with you and read texts with you (i know about narrator, very robotic).

Eagerly waiting for any discussions regarding this.


A:PC able to talk and listen

Although great improvements have been made with speech recognition, home computers currently don't have the capacity to comprehend fully spoken language. For a start off, words can have a slightly different meaning depending on how it is pronounced, and the context in which it is used. In addition, the human brain can recognise the same word when pronounced in many different ways by people with differing accents and dialogue inflections. Unless the speech recognition system in a computer has already learnt the word, and the ways that it may be pronounced, it cannot understand a word if asked to recognise it through audio input. Even if it does know the word, it might not recognise it if it comes in a different accent and inflection.

As regards the computer outputting speech, it is currently very robotic because the number of voices available is very limited. Although the pitch and speed can be varied, this usually affects all of what is being output by the same amount, unlike normal human speech which can change in pitch and speed dynamically. Whilst certain punctuation can make the pitch of the word prior to it rise or fall, the end result is still very much robotic.

Unfortunately, home computers simply don't have the memory capacity or resources in order to be able to speak and to understand speech in the same way as a human brain can. Mainframe computers fair better because they have more memory and resources available, in addition to more processing power thanks to them supporting multiple CPUs (realistic speech comprehension and reproduction is CPU-intensive).

i am using virtual dub to record videos, and a i have a setup that has my mic played through my headset so when VD records the headset it hears me as well, but there is a delay so it has an Eco and that is a annoying, is there a way to listen to the mic but it doesn't reach the headset or something along those lines?

sugestions for good recording software is welcome also

A:'listen' to mic, but still have it muted

The problem is most likely a monitor setting in VD. When I was first recording some albums off a turntable using Audacity, I kept getting an echo through the speakers. The USB turntable would normally play the sound through the speakers fine until I tried to record it. Turns out, Audacity has a setting to turn monitor-sound on or off. I turned it off and all worked great. You might check VD for a similar setting.

I am trying to set up a listen server for COD UO. I am only trying to set it up for two people. (me and another individual) The other individual has my server populate on his screen via my ip, but when he tries to join, it just says "awaiting connection" and never connects. We both more than meet the system requirements and have high speed cable. I have have turned off windows firewall when attempting this, but still nothing. I have e-mail the folks at activision, and they are yet to reply. Any help is greatly appreciated.

virtually any radio station website I try will not play. I click on the listen live link (no matter if I'm on firefox or explorer) and it give an error message and shuts the browser down. I have windows xp media edition. Also, when I bring up my media player, and I click on the file link it gives a list of some videos/jpg that have been viewed in the past. They seem "stuck". I don't know if the problems are related? Help?

Hello all,
I am using ASIO4ALL with Traktor 3 so that I am able to get 2 channels out of my soundcard.
What I mean is that I am using one channel for the speakers and another channel for my headphones.
I need the headphones so as to listen to the "Cue" Deck.

I have connected my speaker system to my soundcard with one cable.
But I had figured out (when I used XP) that I was able to have what I want when the settings were 5.1 speaker system at realtek settings.

Now I cannot listen to anything from Traktor 3 when using ASIO4ALL.
What can I do?
Thank you for your time.

A:ASIO4ALL and Traktor 3 / Cannot listen anything

A:My PC Wont Listen To Me Anymore

Hi likekinds. . .

Welcome back to TSF.

I haven't used this option, but there have reports involving various devices that have just stopped functioning. I don't know if your's is one of them or not. For me it is my mouse pad, others it is DVD, sound, etc...

Try running the system file check/repair utility -

START | type cmd.exe in the start search box | right-click on cmd.exe | select Run as Admin.

At the command prompt type the following:

sfc /scannow

For some reason, my PC has started to refuse to play live streams. When I try on WMP, I get a message about removing the media I am trying to play and reconnecting to the internet. I have no luck in other media players. I've tried changing the WMP associated with live streams, but that hasn't worked.

Any suggestions ?

A:Can't listen to live streams

Is just asking you to remove the media you trying to play or do you get a more specific error message?

Are you able to play the files locally. Have you tried to play streaming media from different locations?

Autoplay insists on using the "Open folder to view files" option.
It is set to prompt me on what to do.
Instead it INSISTS on using the "Open folder to view files" option.
This makes me sad.
Please help.


A:Autoplay will not listen to reason

Nevermind. It was the CDROM driver. The CDROM driver was being mean.
