Q: sound issues pavilon

i have a Pavilion and when watching videos or listening to music the volume will go away or turn way down but the actual volume settings do not change just the volume its self. I have tried reinstalling the drivers and ran all the test. I have also shut off my mic and told it to do nothing in the auto volume settings yet it still randomly decides to turn its self down. I have spend hours with tech support doing the same things over and over and even rebooted my entire system. I have only had this HP for a month. never had a problem in 7 years with my old hp and this one is about to go in the trash.

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.)

Hi @guru99! I'm sorry to say that, but this error may indicate that your HDD is failing and needs to be replaced. If your notebook is still in warranty you can contact the support, but in case you're out of warranty and would like a guide on replacing the hard drive yourself I would be able to recommend you some replacement. Hope this helps and best of luck!

Baselo Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!What will work is restoring your machine to its original factory condition using HP Recovery Media.This is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks.  You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.You can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: there, input your Product name or number. On your Software and Drivers Download page, select your Operating System and and Version. Click "Update".  If HP Recovery Media is available for your machine, down near the bottom of the page, you will see an entry for Order Recovery Media-CD/DVD/USB. Click the "+" symbol to expand that entry and click on Order Media for details.Or, if you prefer, you can do the same by contacting HP Customer Service:If you live in the US or Canada, contact information is on this page: you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!---------------------------------------However, HP Customer Support is generally not available on the weekends, so you might have to wait until Monday to contact them.---------------------------------------If HP no longer provides Recovery Media for your model, a couple of other sites you can check are:  and Luck

Hi there, I am having problems trying to make a clean install of Windows 7 on my HP DV6000. I have rpeviously formatted and installed operating systems on many computers, but this one is giving me to fight!

The main problem is that the instalation never continues from the "Windows is loading files" at the start of the CD booting!

Does HP or this pavilon have any issues?

help will be appreciated!

A:HP Pavilon DV6000 & Win7

Make your HP REcovery Disks or a backup image so you have a path back to factory condition. You can also extract apps from the HP REcovery disks using this method:

Next make sure you have the latest BIOS version update from HP Support Downloads webpage for your model, which is safest installed from Windows.

CHeck also in the BIOS for SATA controller setting: try AHCI first, then IDE if necessary.

Now wipe the HD to get the cleanest possible slate: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Clean Install Windows 7

If install fails again, remove all but 2gb of RAM and test your ram with memtest for 5-6 passes.

Then test your HD using maker's full diag/repair CD scan:

Where did you get Win7? DId you burn it yourself?

Hello - I would be extremely grateful if someone coudl hep me, please!! I haven't used this particular laptop for years, but I desperately need to get back on it to retrieve some files. The laptop seems to work fine, but when I've turned it on a black screen appears with Enter Password in blue - it doesn't look like the normal Windows page that I can remember. It looks as though it's in some sort of safe mode or something. I don't know what this password is. If I enter it incorrectly too many times it says System Disabled [05745] Can anyone please advise? Thanks so much


Hi: See if entering this unlock passcode allows you to access the PC... ehwdi

Help! I have an HP Pavilion a520n that was handed down to me from my brother-in-law. Being free I couldn't pass it up but there are a few issues I hope you can help me with.

The card-reader does not work, neither does the 3.5' floppy drive. I put the memory card from my digital camera in the reader but the drive is not recognized when I click on My Computer.

Drive "A" does show in My Computer but when putting in a disk and clicking on the icon the drive light does not turn on and the window pops up stating to insert a disk in drive A:

I am running Window's XP Pro 2002 with Service Pack 2. I downloaded the driver off HP's website but trying to install it I get the message that the card reader is not installed.

Please help!

NOTE: Please provide the following information for a more detailed response:

While waiting for a reply:

I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests (located at this link: Hardware Diagnostics ). They'll save you a lot of time and heartache if there is a hardware failure, and you'll have the disks on hand in case you need them in the future:


H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)
Hard Drive Diagnostics (read the details at the link) - Test ALL of the hard drives.

Also, please run one of these free, independent online malware scans to ensure that your current protection hasn't been compromised: Free Online AntiMalware Resources (read the details at the link)
There are also free, bootable antivirus disks at this link: Free Online AntiMalware Resources - Bootable Disks

The BSOD is a STOP 0x124.
This is most likely a hardware error - which includes:
- overclocking
- compatibility issues
- low-level driver problems
- malware

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on Win7 systems due to the sptd.sys driver.
Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

I believe that you have Comodo installed on your system. Try uninstalling it to see if that helps.

AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems.


Please uninstall all ATI stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program
Then, download and install a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD
Then use the ATI uninstall manager to uninstall the Catalyst Control Center (CCC).

If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem in perfmon /report, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Uninstall". Reboot for changes to take affect.

If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.

Further info on BSOD error messages available at:

The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs:
- Create a System Restore Point prior to doing any of this. DO NOT mess with the drivers themselves - leave the Windows\System32\drivers directory alone unless we specifically direct you to it!
- Please either update the older drivers from the device manufacturer's website - or uninstall them from your system. Reference links are included below.
- DO NOT use Windows Update or the Update Drivers function of Device Manager.
- Please feel free to post back about any drivers that you are having difficulty locating.
- Windows Update exceptions may be noted below for Windows drivers.

A:Upgrade Graphic Card on hp pavilon 15-ab291sa

robcioslaw Sorry to say this, but you're operating under a misunderstanding, as laptops to do not have customer-replaceable graphics "cards". Instead, they have a graphics processor (GPU) that is soldered to the system board which also contain the CPU chip. While these are sometimes replaceable, that involves sending the PC to an HP Service Center and paying a LOT of money to have it disassembled, have the system board replaced, and have it reassembled -- typically considerably more money than simply buying a more powerful laptop. So basically, it is not practical to upgrade the graphics on a laptop. Good Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------If my posts helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on my post to say thanks.If my posts solved your problem please click "Accept As Solution".========================================================================

I kept getting a blue screen with an error code 0xc0000185. I ordered the recovery Disks from HP but when I went to recover the machine, it sort of reads the cd and then I get the HP logo and the circle just spins and spins. We left it alone for hours and nothing. I ran a Hard Drive Test and it said Hard Drive Short DST Check: FAILEDthen gave this Failure ID: 63621R-7AQ87K-MFPV6K-60XL03Product K7U05UA HARD DRIVE 1 SYSTEM EXTENSIVE TEST: FAILED Any idea what I can do? It is just out of warranty- Of Course. 

A:Pavilon Failed Hard Drive Short DST Check

Hi, The 24 character error id does confirm a failure of the short Disk Self Test and would indicate that the Hard Drive is failing and needs to be replaced.  This is also consistent with the issues you describe. If you would like a guide on replacing the Hard Drive yourself, please let me know. Regards, DP-K

Hey all,

This started last night, the only thing that I did that was out of the ordinary was ran Avast's thourough scan fully, but even after that my sound worked, so it didnt delete the driver to my knowlege, but when I do a dxdiag and look at my audio, it doesn't exist, there is no sound card installed, and allI use is my DFI Lan Party UT RDX200 CF-DR mother boards on board sound. I tried installing the driver again fom DFI and to no success, now when I went to install the drive again, I got an error saying that this device isnt approved by Windows, could windows be preventing my audio card from working?

I've seen this happen with the games I play recently. For example, in games like Battlefield 1942 and Black and White 2, some places showed "straight lines" from objects. At the top of the 3d static object in question, the straight lines go from there to the sky. There seems to be no end to that unless I get really close to that object.

As for the sound problem, I'm hearing static occur at random occasions. Any way to fix these?

My fianc?e upgraded to Windows 7 a few months ago and all was working fine until a few weeks ago. Her onboard sound just stopped working for no reason. I have tried everything to fix this and it doesn't work. I have played sample sounds and the device says it is producing sound but nothing comes out of the speakers. (They work, tested on a laptop) Also there is no option for speakers anywhere. All that appears is High Definition Audio Device, it is enabled but nothing for speakers. This is doing my head in.

If all that is showing is "High Definition Audio Device" then it is running on the default Windows driver and needs the actual driver for it installed.

A:Sound issues

What kind of speakers do you have? It is possible that the problem is there, or with the connections to the speakers or subwoofer. I think I understood from the post that the sound is bad with both the audigy and the onboard sound? If so, that would tend to eliminate the sound card. It could be a mobo going bad, as you say, but I would also check for outside interference from another electrical device (laser printer, monitor, etc)

This is probably another thread that says "I have a sound problem." But I think my problem differs from other people who's having problem.

Okay, here it goes. I clearly remember what I did on my laptop. I was deleting unimportant files and after that I went disk cleaning on my :D drive. After awhile I hopped on to a game and then i realise that there was no sound playing from my speakers. Nope it's not hardware problems because I was just playing some music on my iTunes before I even touch the disk clean-up manager. Tried the device manager and I tried to roll back the changes. It wouldn't work. I tried downloading the SndVol32.exe file and I extracted in the System32 folder but to no avail. I can't hear a thing from the speakers.

Well, I'd appreciate it if someone could help me asap. Thank you :)

Check your Realtek software (should be a blue icon like a crab in your taskbar by the clock, or even a red speaker icon in some cases) sometimes the default jack assignment settings are incorrect or re-assigned (i dont have a realtek here at work so unfortunatley cannot walk you through the settings). Also the ATI HD3400 most likely has an onboard sound card if its a HDMI version, that could have interfered with your setup. Open your control panel/Sounds and Audio Devices, click the Audio tab at the top and ensure the correct device that you are pluging your TV into is the Default Device in the Sound Playback section at the top.

Hope this helps

I am not getting any sound on my computer at all. When I clicked the speaker on the toolbar and ran the troubleshooter it told me I needed to update my drivers. But when I go through the Device Manager it tells me I have no Sound Card installed. I'm fairly sure my soundcard is on the motherboard. But I've even reseated the video card and the only other card that can be reseated. I've downloaded the Realtek High Definition sound Device driver and rebooted at least 3 times and nothing has worked.
Also, out of paranoia I ran Spybot to see if there is a virus causing the troubles and it found nothing.

The sound on all my AIM features is severely muffled. At first I just thought it was the Talk feature, and I thought it was an issue the person I was talking with was having because all my other sound is fine, but I recently realized it all of my AIM that's muffled. And I mean, muffled to the point where the sounds are only loud enough to sound like soft breathing, which was really freaky, by the way. I uninstalled AIM and installed the newest version and the problem is persisting, and I don't know what else to do.

I have a dell XPS running windows XP with a 3.0 ghz processor, ATI 9800 pro video card and a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 sound card.

My problem is that I am hardly getting any volume out of my speakers even with the Volume fully up in both windows and on the speaker controls. This problem developed while playing a game and is now system wide. I thought it might just be the speakers so I hooked up some old ones, however the problem remained. I than thought it might be the soundcard drivers so I reloaded the original ones to no avail. If it helps, the game I was playing was Vampire the masquerade Bloodlines, and I had just installed directx 9.0c I also have the dell mulitimedia keyboard which I sometimes use to lower or raise the volume in game, but it seems to be working fine. I would be greatful for any help.

As of recently I have noticed my sound will randomly Sound issues just stop There's first a brief half-second of a static-like crackling and then a few quot pop quot noises It will then stay muted for Sound issues anywhere between a few seconds to several minutes However using my Creative software either Creative Console Launcher's mode switcher or Creative Audio Control Panel to change the quot sound mode quot will instantly fix the issue I first noticed this occassionally happening when I would use the Metro game app quot Flow Free quot and didn't have any music playing in the background so I figured it was a bug with the app Now I'm noticing it when just doing anything on my desktop The sound completely glitches up exiting Winamp what I use for music does not fix the issue and opening Windows Audio Mixer shows that there is sound coming from winamp even after I've exited it For clarification I am using Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Xtreme Gamer with PCI interface and using its Windows driver

A:Sound issues

Do you happen to have the on-board (integrated) audio also enabled? If you do that can cause conflicts and problems. It may not be your problem, but if you left it enabled when you installed the SoundBlaster, disable it in the BIOS and see if it makes a difference.

So, I recently rolled back to XP, from Vista. And I could get all the drivers I needed installed again. (Video, Printer, Keyboard, Mouse). But, whatever I try to do, or no matter how many different drivers I install, the sound will not work! I have checked the back of the computer, referred to the manual, and have done countless Google searches.

Can anybody help? I would greatly appreciate it!

What's the brand name and model name and complete model number of that computer?

If perchance it's a HP/Compaq brand, advise what the product number(P/N) on it is.

If perchance it's a Dell brand, advise what the 7-character "service tag" number on it is.


Never ever upgrade or downgrade to a different Windows version without first confirming the identity of the computer's devices and confirming that device drivers exist for that Windows version.

If you go into the Device Manager, it's my guess there's one or more entries with a yellow ? next to it - which indicates the driver hasn't been installed.

Hello everybody !

Decided to create this topic in order to discuss sound issues related to Windows 7. In my case, I decided to install W7 in my Sony Vaio VGN-S360, despite all warnings related to Vaio only supporting its original XP Home Edition. Everything is running smooth and the OS works fine and fast. I have already downloaded and installed most drivers from Sony support webpage. However, there is one thing that won't work the way it should. I have my Fn key working fine for brightness control and other stuff. But as for sound, it won't control the overall sound. You see the scale going up and down, but that doesn't affect the master volume (soundmax). Does anybody have any idea how to turn the Fn key into a master sound control again ? Thanks !

A:sound issues

You'll have to update at least 2 pieces of hardware to do this (and hope that they work together).
Update the keyboard driver that runs the Fn keys - but get it from the hardware manufacturer's website - NOT the Sony website.
Do the same thing with the sound card driver.

Run the installers in Compatibility mode for Vista and Run as administrator.

We checked the sound from the control panel. When we try checking the sound it is the garble/static sound. The media player only worked from the head phone plug in the front of the computer, not the card in the back. Does anyone have any suggestions for us?

Good evening all It seems these few times I have had problems I end up coming here when I can't figure out the problem myself but that is always because of the great help I've had from the TSF force I have an Advent DVD Laptop that has had its share of issues but nothing ever serious just your usual growing pains Never has the sound been an issue though But earlier today I was once again on MSN Messenger talking to someone I had installed Messenger Plus and was just going through the motions of it yet I don't believe that to Cause?) The (MSN Sound XP Issues 7.0 With be Sound Issues With XP (MSN 7.0 The Cause?) the cause as the sound was fine even after installing it The person I was talking to wanted to start up an audio conversation and which prompted a Setup of the process I don't have a microphone and in my haste just ran through the process and didn't pay much Sound Issues With XP (MSN 7.0 The Cause?) attention my bad I know the result though has left me with an Echo effect in anything I do That's right it isn't just locked into Messenger I closed down to see if that would help the echo was still Sound Issues With XP (MSN 7.0 The Cause?) around I even uninstalled both MSN and Messenger Plus just to be sure and the echo was still effecting regular Windows sounds and Winamp Restarting the computer hasn't helped either muting the 'microphone' as I don't really have one to my knowledge and I don't believe the laptop has a hidden microphone hasn't helped either I'm really confused as to what I can do in order to stop this echo The only thing I can imagine has happened is that in the Audio Conversation setup through MSN has registered SiS Wave what the computer uses for Sound Playback for the microphone also and that has caught my computer in a loop for the sound Does that sound too stupid And am I more than slightly screwed in my endeavour to stop this echoing annoyance Any help is appreciated

A:Sound Issues

Hello and Welcome to TSF

First off, you are now using an illegal copy of Windows XP as you stated here


I eventually just used my friends key and it worked, which surprised me. I always thought OEM keys were tied to the one system.

Secondly we cannot help you with your issue as we would be assisting in pirating software.

Bought a soundblaster live 24 card.
5.1 Surround sound speakers. Plugged them in and they all worked. Sometime between now and then they have gone back to only playing left and right channels and ingnoring the other speakers, except the sub stll works. When i use Creative diagnostic, there are no problems, it checks each speaker with a sound and the sounds come through. When i use winamp... windows media player et al... it goes back to only 2 channels. All my setting in all my programs are set to creative soundblaster im sure, as well as my options in control panel.
Im truely confused. any suggestions?

I am having a problem with my sound just recently, I haven't been getting any sound for any games or music files, etc. However, the speaker system DOES work. It has something to do with my software I assume. Here is a picture of the error message I recieve:

A:I need help with sound issues...

Do you normally use Winamp to listen to music, etc?

Maybe try uninstalling it and reinstalling it.

Or in Winamp, go to Preferences - Output

Highlight over DirectSound output and hit Configure
Make sure the Device is set to the correct soundcard

If that doesn't work, try uninstalling/reinstalling the DirectSound plug-in

When I turn on the sound from my speakers, I get a buzzing sound as well as a ringing tone sound its the error ring tone that one often gets but just keeps tolling. I checked all of the connections and I believe my speakers are hooked up correctly. I wonder if this issue is with my speakers or with my sound card and drivers? My computer is infected right now and I noticed the problem started around the same time as the other issues.

I have my 5.1 sound system plugged into the front audio jack on my computer. but everytime I open up VLC media player I have to change the audio from 5.1 to stereo. or else I don't hear the voices only the backround music. Is there anyway to change it so that VLC media player to default to opening with stereo sound.

A:Sound Issues

Try changing the codec to A52 in settings. I'm not familiar with VLC's settings in Windows, but this is what it looks like in OS X:

Hopefully it's the same, and hopefully the A52 codec would keep it set to your 5 channels (I think A52 can do up to 6 channels, not sure).

Bought Envy 15" notebook in early 2015 with 2 year extended warranty. After a few months no sound thru the laptop speakers. Ok if using bluetooth or earbuds. Sent back to HP for repairs and onk upon return. Upgraded to windows 10 and again start with no sound. If I restart the laptop I have sound for a short time but it goes back off. Returned again for repairs and just received it back last week and the no sound issue started again. Have called tech support many times and went thru troubleshooting including allowing them remote access. Just completed a 1.5 hour session with them and after I had sound for a total of 30 minutes before it went back off This is a major issue with HP laptops apparently and all the are doing is sweeping it under the rug until the warranty is over. MY LAST HP PURCHASE....

Hi All of my music files seem to have stopped working None of them play anymore in any media player and Windows Media Player says it can t find the files in my playlists and I have not moved any of the files online sounds and system Issues Sound sounds work fine I have narrowed the cause down to the installation of AIM and even further than that during complete while installing I can t figure out what AIM does to my system that causes all sound files to screw up I have tried uninstalling AIM and then competing a Sound Issues system restore and that makes them work But when I reinstall AIM system restored to point earlier than that the same problem occurs I would rather not have to use a different program for IM as I have other users that I interact with who refuse to change I have looked at my sound settings in the control panel have reset my default programs and looked at all sound settings in AIM and have changed them around but nothing seems to work Any help would be appreciated AJR nbsp

A:Sound Issues

If AIM is the problem, the AOL should have an answer (Good luck with that ). But many messengers can access the AIM network if you want to try another in case no one has a solution to the problem. Pidgin and Trillian are the most popular.

First, test with different speakers or headphones to determine if it's a speaker or PC issue. Second, update/reinstall the audio drivers.

I am windows XP professional I'm having problems getting IE to laod.
Sometimes it starts and sometimes it doesn't.
It may take me 3 or more attempts to log on.

Just last week I lost my sound.
Done the troubleshooting and my sound device says there is no problem.
Yes my cables and everything are fine.
I've run malware and I'm clean.

Don't know where to start.
Start up is very slow, maybe 5 to 10 minutes beore everything loads up.
Processes are from 59 to 63 currently.
CPU usage is between 3 and 13 %

A:IE and sound issues

If your audio function is not working properly...I would go to Device Manager and uninstall the sound devices...reboot the system and then reinstall the sound drivers.You might try running chkdsk on your C: partition, Running CHKDSK - Select both options (Automatically...scan).Reboot the system and let it run to completion, system should reboot when command is complete with task.Louis
