X1 Carbon (20FB) Audio Issue

Q: X1 Carbon (20FB) Audio Issue

Hi, We are having an issue with our X1 Carbon's(20FB). The audio output via an HDMI cable works, we see the Epson speakers in the playback devices. After the user is logged on for a while, the speakers will no longer showup in the playback devices and the auidio will just come through the laptops speakers. After we restart the computer, the audio will again work and play to the speakers. Windows 7 X64 Any help or thoughts on this is greatly appreciated. Thanks,John

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 recently got a X1 carbon 4th gen (20FB), and I have been super happy with its performance. However, it seems like whenever I have the laptop closed, the keyboard is leaving a mark on the screen. I sent it to repair, and they changed the screen, but that didn't seem to fix it. I noticed that the body and the lid are not perfectly aligned - one of the corners of the lid seems to be jutting out a little bit with respect to the rest of the body. I've attached picture to show this. I'm not sure if this is a part of the general design of the Carbon.  Can anyone with a X1 carbon 4th gen confirm that this alignment feature is not present in their machine? Thank you ?

Hello all, We've got the same problem here with our x1 Carbon 4th gen (20FB). Lucky, we just purchased 2 but not 2 dozen. Both of them have the same problem which same as Swhitcher. We've called the Lenovo support hotline and ask for the onsite support. The on-site engineer replaced the mother board for us, but after 1 hour, problem occur again. We're going to deploy those computers to the end user very soon.So please, give us the solution as soon as you can, Lenovo!Many Thanks! Willi

Hi, I've got an X1 Carbon 20FB (4th gen), and noticed it doesn't have Lenovo System Update on it, which I've found useful in the past. So I went to the Lenovo downloads site and found System Update, but it doesn't list the 20FB as one of the X1 Carbons it supports - it only goes up to 20BS, 20BT: (See the "Note for ThinkPad X1 Carbon users") Should I avoid downloading System Update then? I've not noticed anything that's not functioning, but I figured it makes sense to keep things up to date from a security and features point of view. Why is it not included by default? Thanks for any advice!

Hi, does anyone know if there is a list of compatible embedded LTE chips that will work on a X1 Carbon 20FB?  The reason why I ask this is bec the current model, EM7455, only operates at some frequencies that some abroad contries do not support and the older models such as the EM7355 support those frequencies.  One being GSM.  I tired to install a EM7355 into my 20FB laptop but the bios isn't allowing it. Thanks!

A:X1 Carbon 20FB Embedded LTE Compatibility

EM7455 is versatile enough and supports a lot of 4G/LTE including LTE-A and 3G bands worldwide. It does not support 2G (GPRS/EDGE) access technology.

Hi, trying to get a Windows 7 Install done on a Carbon X1 2016 20FB w/ Samsung950 Pro. Bios 1.14 (latest as of May 2016)Special issue is, I need to get it done in a Legacy mode (BIOS,MFT style). I was able to install Win7 based on a win7 image that got the 950pro drivers and the USB3 drivers infused through NTLITE, and then I build an image with Rufus 2.9 (both UEFI/GPT and UEFI/MFT) worked, with the X1 BIOS was set up to UEFI only with CSM.BUT I need to to run on the BIOS setting 'Legacy' and in MFT style, b'cause the special Win7 installer I need to use does not support anything else. I know, sounds weird, but..... . So- is there a fundamental limitation against booting / installing a Win7 on a Carbon X1 2016 20FB - Samsung950 Pro in Legacy 7 MFT mode?

I'm setting up a new X1 Carbon with machine type 20FB. It came with a Samsung MZNTY256HDHP SSD. I noted there was a recent SSD firmware update package for this laptop model, so I downloaded and ran the updater. It reported there were no updates. However, after digging a bit deeper, I discovered that the SSD firmware updater for the X1 Carbon 20A7/20A8/etc. DOES have an update for the SSD in this machine. What is going on here? Does this firmware update somehow only apply when the SSD is installed in a 20A7? Or did this particular model of SSD just get missed when Lenovo was putting together the firmware update package for the 20FB?

Carbon X1 connected to OneLink+ with current firmware 2.30 OneLink+ dock is connected to 2 DisplayPort monitors and some USB devices 1. If the X1 display is closed the system hangs on starting Windows2. If I open the lid and re-power the system and start up windows. Once I can get the the Login screen, I can then close the lid and all is good. Both external dispay work fine 3. X1 boots fine when not attached to OneLnk+ Workaround - #2 is not a great option in the long term Any help would be appreciated Steve

Hello, I have this problem for month now :I close my X1 Carbon lid before going to bed, and in the morning, when I resume it from hibernation, the trackapd and trackpoint are totally unresponsive. Everything else work fine, I just have to wait, sometimes 20/30sec, sometimes a whole minute, to have the trackpad working. This is very frustrating to have a computer resuming so fast from hibernation but being unable to use it. I have the latest BIOS (1.15), latest UltraNav driver ( several drivers uninstallation/reinstallation, several fresh windows install, problem is still present. Actually on a fresh install of Windows 10 64bit (Anniversary update).

Hi all, I have the X1 Carbon 2016 (20FB) and it is running Windows 10 Enterprise. I have all the lastest Windows and Lenovo updates. It all works pretty well except when it comes to starting back from sleep mode. I have the laptop configured to go to sleep when I close the lid. However when I reopen the lid, the power button and keyboard lights come on but the display stays off. Opening and closing the several times doesn't help. The only way to get the display to turn on is to quickly press the power button. This puts the laptop to sleep. If I press the power button again the laptop comes back to life and the display works again. Anyone else have this issue? Any possible solutions? Thanks,Ian

Just got my brand new X1 Carbon (4gen 2016/20FB) with the 512 GB PCIe NVMe SSD (THNSN5512GPU7). Was expecting a blazing fast disk, but it felt sluggish something that AS SSD Benchmark confirms (see attachment). According to the specs this drive should offer up to 2400 Mb/s read and 1500 Mb/s write. But I get 1800 MB/s read and abysmal 113 MB/s write. The machine has all the latest updates from Lenovo (incl BIOS) and all the drivers for Windows 10. Anyone else tested their drives? Found a Dell XPS owner with the same drive that complained about the same issue. Turning off windows write cache buffer flushing does help, but that is not a good answer.

Hi, I updated my X1 Carbon 4th gen to 1.17 BIOS, and since then, opening the lid won't wake the computer from hibernation, except when plugged.Bios changelog states Disabled the power button when the computer is in battery mode and the
computer lid is closedbut when I read "power button", I don't think "this is gonna break the behavior of the lid". And of course, no rollback is possible from 1.17, so I'm stuck with a computer wich won't wake from hibernation correctly. I just can advise you all to not upgrade bios, and see what's inside the next version...

Hi, the power options sets that the display should turn off in X minutes. But it doesn't do it at all. Instead, the computer is locked and the display dimms.  I'm pretty sure that I have installed the latest monitor and graphic card driver. For testing it, I have also unplugged all USB devices.  What can still be the reason? Thanks!

I have verified that the audio jack becomes nonfunctional if the system sleeps and then wakes up again. Once the system comes out of a sleep state, the audio jack no longer detects the cable. To fix it, I have to restart the system. This is stupid. Surely there's a fix?

A:X1 Carbon audio jack issue

Hi Drteeter,
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
Did you verify the Audio driver version is correct from Lenovo support site?
If the current Audio driver version is not matching with our support site then it is incorrect version and needs to uninstall and then download the driver from support site.
Hope this helps.
Best regards,

I have searched forums far and wide and have taken the following steps:1. Uninstall and reinstall drivers. I downloaded 2 of them both had the same issue.2. went into realtek settings, and changed it to multi stream mode, no device was detected.3. I used 3 pairs of headphones.4. Someone online said it might be loose audio cable, i assure you it is not. The audio board also has a usb port on it and that port is working fine on my laptop.Any solutions that might work will be appreciated

I think most users know that TrackPoint has an auto-correction mechanism to avoid permanent physical tilt.That is, when TrackPoint is pushed towards a direction with constant force for several seconds, that direction will be corrected as "zero-point". Therefore you'll observe a counter-movement when releasing TrackPoint. What I want to mention is that, back on X220, if you press middle-button when pushing TrackPoint, the above mechanism will never be triggered regardless of how long or how hard you push. This is a correct and thoughtful design, because when middle-button is pressed, such tilt should be user-generated rather than permanent physical. However, on X1 Carbon (3rd gen), the auto-correction mechanism will be triggered even when middle-button is pressed. This is NOT a correct behaviour.I guess such behaviour is coded in Synaptics driver.  If so, please kindly contact them to correct this behaviour. Thanks.

A:Carbon X1 4th Gen OneLink Dock Issue

The Onelink dock doesn't connect to USB, "Onelink" is lenovo's special dock/accessory port.  For a 4th gen, it should be Onelink+, which is a thin port about 1" wide located next to the power port on the left edge of the laptop.  That said, if the laptop says the dock is connected even though you don't have a onelink+ dock and have never connected one, there is definitely something wrong.  I'd probably suggest calling Lenovo support, and/or exchanging it for a different laptop through your reseller.

And i feel the screen quality is not as good as the original one in terms of black level, viewing angle. Should I call back and let them redo it?  Another issue is that they reset or reinstalled the system (even though I removed my password). Not it looks different when the computer boots up. It was showing a white Lenovo logo in a pure black background. Not it starts with a thinkpad sign and then comes with the four ugly microsoft square logo. Is there anyway to let it go back to what it looked like before? ??

Lenovo Gen 4(20FC) Carbon loses audio after Lenovo System Update We have several of the Gen 4 X1 Carbons here at work and they work fine until Lenovo system updates gets run. We have had 4 people run the system updates and now the system has no audio. If you click the audio icon in the try, windows begins diagnosing the system. If you try to install a different driver, it fails with code 1. No matter if you uninstall, reinstall, different versions of the driver....nothing seems to restore the audio. I finally did a system restore to before lenovo system update was run and the audio returned to working. It seems to be a software problem but I would really like to know if there is some way to get it working without having to restore every time someone runs lenovo system update.

Every since windows 10 upgrade i have been having issues with my audio. When i start a video for the first time i will hear crackling and poping noise then it will catch up after i pause the video and play again.  Then the audio slowly goes out of sync.  At first i thought that were my speakers, but it was happening over headphones as well.  I tried the latest version of driver along with switching to the windows 10 generic audio drivers.  Anyone else having issues with this?

 HiI own a X1 Carbon Gen 2 thinkpad and wonder if it is possible to replace the current keyboard with a X1 Carbon gen 3 keyboard (with proper mouse buttons), or if it will not fit?I have tried to check the manuals and the connectors seems similar although some things, such as the fingerprint reader, seems different. I have no problem "loosing" the adaptive keyboard and fingerprint reader if I can have all the functionality of the keyboard and trackpoint on the new "keyboard" (i.e. the gen 3 frontpanel).

A:X1 Carbon Gen 3 Keyboard on X1 Carbon Gen 2

I am interested in this exact topic as well. Looks like the Gen 3 keyboards lack the adaptive keyboard - that clear stripe on the top that changes. The FRU for these X1 Carbons seem to be the whole keyboard, adaptive part, trackpad and bezel - they go for 150 USD or so. Problem is we don't know if it will work given the model year differences. A nice alternative would be just to replace the trackpoint. They came close with this one, but it is no macbook in terms of tactile feel of the pad. I really am having a hard time with it and it's been about a month.  Lenovo please help!

it also happens when i use windowfx, or other programs to make xp look better
this appears to be a graphic card problem,, since the pc freezes and i had a problem last week with it,, i thought it was useless,, i couldnt start the pc cos it rebooted,,, after uninstalling and reinstalling the graphic card driver the problem was solved.....

the weird thing about this is that only happens while using a music player (wmp itunes winamp) etc.. but when i play games that also have audio like cs source nothing happens.......

maybe uninstalling the gpu and audio drivers and reinstalling them????

is there a way,, after the pc is rebooted,, the error that caused that????
windows must have a registry about these type of events

I also cant seem to find the audio out in my audio preferences.

Also, not sure if its unrelated but in the playback menu for my audio, "digital audio HDMI" A icon I haven't seen before, (which looks like a monitor) says its not plugged in, not sure if that's the blue port.

Haha, sorry if that is so Vague.

I don't know what apps your using for your sound system but it may well be you've somehow switched a default player with something else. The system might not know which program to use. You have to run down what defaults and drivers your audio uses as default and make sure it's still the same. Go into Sound under Control Panel and check to see what's going on. Jazz

I'm running a PC using the ASUS A8V-XE motherboard, with an x64 processor. I recently installed Vista Ultimate, but I have no sound out of the green jack on the rear panel. When I hover over the speaker icon, it says Digital Output Device (SPDIF) and says it's working. However, I have no available speaker settings, and it's the only device under the playback devices.

I attempted to install RealTek drivers. They go through set up fine, and ask to restart. When I do, there's no app installed or any realtek item.

Is this motherboard incompatible or am I missing something else?

A:Audio Issue

noobie welcome to the forums.

Right click on the speaker icon and select "Playback Devices", then click on Speakers and then click on "Set Default". That should get your speakers working.

There is also a good reason that the Realtek drivers don't appear to do anything, according to the specs for your motherboard,

ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

it has the ADI/SoundMax audio, not Realtek. Try the driver linked to here (last post),

Audio Problem - SoundMax ADI1986A - Microsoft Windows Vista Community Forums - Vistaheads

Might be a good idea to uninstall the Realtek driver if it is showing in Programs and Features before installing the SoundMax driver.

You should have maybe asked first:

However, to get the driver you need (assuming you don't have a support cd with the driver on it and the driver isn't on your comp already in the restore area), we'll need information.

Download and run Everest Home (it is free):

Once you download it, click on it and let it install and then run it from the icon on your desktop and then click on 'Computer' then on 'Summary', then go to the VERY top of the screen and click on 'report', then 'quick report-summary' and then 'plain text' and save it then go to C:/programs/lavalys and open that folder then open Everest Home sub-folder and then reports sub-folder and click on the report which will open it in a text editor and then use your mouse to highlight ALL the debug stuff at the bottom of the report and delete it and then save that file again and then copy and paste it to here.

My sound and microphone both work sometimes and other times they don't work but the problem is specific every time. When I play a game with a push to talk key every time I use the push to talk key the game will momentarily freeze then the audio will switch from headphones to speakers then back to headphones and sometimes it doesn't even switch back to the headphones and just shuts off the audio entirely. I don't know what is happening but it is very annoying as when I want to talk to my team mates I feel like I am gambling my ability to play every time I talk.

Hi everyone,
I've built a HTPC for myself, but I'm having issues with sound in Media Center.

I recently bought myself a Philips SRM 5100 remote control for work with WMC, and they work great together (pior to that, I had never used WMC - which now, as I understand, seems like a great piece of software).

The problem is: when playing back a DVD (or apparently anything mixed in surround), I don't get all the channels to play along. When I switch to 2.1 sound, I don't get the voice tracks. When I go for 5.1, I don't get background/ambient details and the subwoofer/low sounds are really weak.

I tried a different software (XBMC) for a test, and sound works ok with it (but the remote doesn't), so I guess there's something wrong with WMCenter, its configuration, or codecs.

Can anyone help me solve this?

Thank you!

A:audio issue

The first troubleshooting step I would recommend is the easiest: restart your computer. Sometimes a single application can take control of your sound device and not let any other apps use it, but you can release that control by restarting.Here are a few other steps you can try: Run the audio troubleshooting tool in WindowsTry connecting headphones or a set of external speakersSet the default sound device to make sure your computer is sending audio output to the correct deviceIf your computer came with Windows 10 installed, you can restore the original sound driver in HP Recovery Manager, or update the driver through Device ManagerIf you upgraded your computer to Windows 10, you can update the sound driver in Device ManagerHard reset your notebookThese solutions and more are explained in detail in this document: HP Notebook PCs ? No Sound or Distorted Sound from Speakers.  Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee

Hello I recently picked up a Samsung quot LN E F F LCD TV Output Issue TV Audio and I had been under the impression that the TV would include some form of audio output The only options on the rear panel are HDMI inputs Component RCA Audio TV Audio Output Issue Input and one jack that looks suspiciously like an Optical Audio out marked quot Service quot I had never TV Audio Output Issue heard of a TV without any audio output but apparently it exists I have a Pioneer k audio receiver that I use for surround sound and hook all of my peripherals EXCEPT my basic cable provided by my college campus as the receiver has no antenna input I would like to be able to use the surround sound with my basic cable so my question is is there a converter I can use to take a cable antenna and convert at the very least the stereo audio into RCA for the input on my receiver Or is there a way I could use the HDMI ARC to get the audio from the cable back into the receiver Thanks in advance nbsp

I'm hoping someone can help me out with this. I have an Asus A8R-MVP motherboard that i just installed Windows 7 on, but i can't seem to get sound to work from the speakers. It appears that the only sound devise installed is the SPIDF port. I need to get the basic left/right computer speaker audio working. I can't seem to find any compatible drivers for the onboard audio for the board

Any help with this would be really appreciated

A:Audio Issue on A8R-MVP Motherboard

According to the ASUS website there are no compatible drivers...

You could try these, they are from a similar card, but I make no guarantees

I've recently bought a new laptop. It's an ASUS x54c. I have a bunch of videos on my external hard drive that I'm trying to burn to DVDs. I've used the Windows DVD Maker and also I've used Nero 7, which I've used both on my old computer and they both have worked fine, but both programs on this computer burn the video with no audio. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, I've tried updating the drivers, and I've tried also using an external DVD drive. In fact, the last time I tried it using Nero 7, I clicked on the preview button, before burning the disc, and the preview doesn't even have sound.

Hey guys..

I just changed my pc. on my old one, when i used a dvd software like PowerDVD ans was increasing/decreasing the audio, both "Volume Control" and "Wave" bars moved up and done ( On the Volume Control Window) and thus i could have very low and very hight audio that was great.

on my new pc when i do the same thing, only the "Volume Control" moves up and down, thing that means i do not get very high volume and i have to open the volume control widow to fix that.. Is there any option i can change for this to work like on my old pc?

Any help is welcome


A:Minor Audio Issue

My guess is that this is because you haven't installed the best drivers for the sound card, and so you get the safe default XP drivers which "sort of" work for everything.

Identify your sound card's manufacturer & model, go to the manufacturer's seb-sites "download" page and download and install the most-current drivers. (if you haven't already, duh...)

I bought this product a week ago, since the first day i experienced very low FPS even with the lowest graphic settings (5-18 fps averge). I already tried to update drivers, i only have 2 programs installed, the CPU temperature is stable and low. There is also another issue,  while using headphone the volume keeps goind up and down , sounding distorted. ( Sorry if i am putting this in Notebook video section but couldn't select more than one)I know that this pc uses integrated graphics, but seems strange that a good processor like this one can't even handle such low graphics. Kind regards,Giovanni

I put Windows Developer's Preview on this computer a few weeks ago and have not had any issues 'til yesterday I had no audio I checked the drivers checked the cables speakers powersupply for the subwoofer speakers and couldn't find anything wrong Except no audio but I didn't realize it until today A few minutes ago I was looking in to this again and remembered I set up an account for testing on this machine yesterday and logged in to it Once logged in The SoundMax app began an autorun for the new user and I canceled it it wasn't pertinent to the test I ran my tests logged out logged back in to my usual account and deleted that test account I issue SoundMax audio didn't make the SoundMax audio issue connection right away because I generally don't listen to anything on the PC but as I tried to watch a SoundMax audio issue video this afternoon I realized I had no audio So upon that epiphany I created yet another account waited for the SoundMax app to run and this time I followed all the prompts Lo and behold now I have audio Let me remind you I did check all of the audio drivers and they were fine So is this proper behavior for Windows Should it allow the actions or non-action in this case in a non-administrator account to impact other accounts' functionality Microsoft says no

First to Audio Issue HDMI TV PC I would like to say that I have search this forum and multiple other solutions on other sites prior to writing this but could find no solution to address the problem PC to TV HDMI Audio Issue that I am having I am using a Sony Vaio running Windows Deluxe connected to a Sony Bravia television via HDMI cable HDMI to HDMI My problem much like every other persons problems I have seen is audio I have video but no audio Having search other solutions the solutions usually involves setting HDMI audio output as the default through the computer s playback settings However my problem is that with the connection made and even though there is video there is no option for HDMI PC to TV HDMI Audio Issue audio when I open up to check my playback devices I have tried restarting the computer and manually disconnecting and re-connecting the cable while the computer is on but nothing seems to work I have further looked to see if it was a driver problem but the problem was not fixed after any driver updates I have been using this setup for close to a year now with no issues at all with audio until now I originally suspected that something may have changed after receiving a windows update and subsequently did a system restore to a couple days prior This worked and the audio was once again working but now a day later the audio is not working again My question would be is anybody else experiencing any issues with this recently And regardless of any possible issues with windows updates does anyone happen to know of a solution to this problem Thank you for your time and I apologize for bringing up a question that has been asked time and time again lol nbsp

Yesterday I installed Windows Vista Service Pack 1. So I could install Microsoft Office 2010. After doing so, my audio stopped working. Does anyone know why this happened? THanks!

A:Audio Hardware Issue..I NEED HELP!!!

It is possible that your sound driver has been corrupted or invalidated for some reason by the service pack. Press Windows + Pause, and then click Device manager from the bar on the left. Are there any invalid drivers, as marked by yellow exclamation marks? If so you should go to your manufacturer's website, download and install the drivers.

A:Windows 7 Audio Issue

Hello BigBeefLord and welcome to TSF,

Let me start by saying thank you for posting the specs off the bat.

Okay... When did this problem first occur?

Next time the sound quits, open Device Manager and check your Audio devices for notifications (red X or yellow !).

Alright this might take awhile to explain so I'll split it into two parts my issue and what I have tried Issue A nice feature of Windows that I realized was that when I plug my headphones into the front audio jack sound would of course play through the headphones but also the sound through the speakers which is connected to the rear jack stops Now however sound will not come through the rear jack but will only come out through the front jack This irritates me to no end I basically want it the way it was originally Attempts Well from Audio with Redirection Issue the Issue with Audio Redirection start I had been using the default MS audio drivers as I had not really cared for any extra audio features The way it was was how Issue with Audio Redirection I liked it So after receiving this issue I attempted to install the VIA drivers for the audio chipset of my mobo That Issue with Audio Redirection didn't resolve anything Actually doing so only changed the sound setup so that the rear and front jacks show up separately as Speakers and Heaphones in the Sound configuration This wasn't exactly what I wanted So next was to install the VIA software HD Deck or whatever it was Now fiddling with the settings of that I could change it from the separate speakers headphones configuration to other configurations such as having sound come out through both devices simultaneously Luckily I thought at the time I found an option that would allow for what I really wanted sound to be redirected from the rear jack to the front jack when the front jack is in use However when I change to this configuration the same issue I had before where sound would not come out through the rear jack ever came back At this point I came under the suspicion that the way Windows naturally handles sound through multiple audio ports no longer functions correctly Doing a SFC command in a command-line several times has not helped any and I can't find anything else related to my situation Lastly by the suggestion from my brother I disconnected the front audio connection from my mobo and started Windows Sound came out through the rear jack perfectly fine But stupidly when I reconnect the front jack the issue just comes right back Here I'm completely out of ideas So does anyone have any ideas as to what I could do before I just kick the bucket and reinstall Windows

A:Issue with Audio Redirection

Well, I have been reading about the differences between HD Audio and AC97. I read that HD Audio allows basically for the front to mute the rear. Is it possible that for some odd reason this is always being triggered or something? I know that the front audio jack might be a bit broken in some way or another, since my headphone jack has been pulled out from it at odd angles and varying strengths by accident on multiple occasions.

Edit: From what I can tell, it does look like my front audio panel thinks there's a audio device connected when there isn't and that's causing the rear audio to be muted when I used HD Audio. Again, can this be caused by a bad audio jack?

Issue: All video I try to watch (be it on youtube, hulu, espn, etc. even dvds wont play) does not play correctly. The quality/resolution is fine but the video plays extremely choppy, regardless of if it's fully buffered, and there's no audio. Also songs wont play on itunes. I click on a song and itunes will bring it up but the song ultimately doesn't play. I've tried updating/reinstalling flash but that didn't fix it. Ive run a spyware scan and installed awaiting updates on the computer. Everything else seems to work fine (internet, word, most other programs).

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I have no idea which audio driver to install, I thought I did but none of them have worked so far.

I downloaded Everest, and it says under "Multimedia"

"Field Value

I have NO idea what to install for this....the site doesn't seem to have the drivers.
