Preferred Solution: I want to be able to talk via skype and listen to music at the same time.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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).

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.

I just recently purchased a Skype number and I have a few emails telling me that I have a new voice message and I should sign into Skype to listen to them.

So I signed into the metro style Skype app on windows 8.1 but could not find voice messages. I tried on the surface rt app but no option for voice messages. I tried logging into the Skype website and again could not find my messages.

So how does one listen to their voice messages in Skype?

Hey !

I would like start off by saying that I know that there are a lot threads about this problem already, but I googled for hours without any success. I tried everything I came across but nothing worked. I have tried the following:
1. Turning "Stereo Mix" off
2. Turning off the built-in microphone "play-back" in the Realtek HD-audio configuration
3. Tried configuring Skype's embedded audio settings
But nothing has worked so far. I only use 2 devices (one for the mic, and one for sound) and it is only those that are active, the rest are disabled.
I have enabled both "Reduction of Noise" and "Acoustic echo off" in the sound card's control panel.
What more is there to try?

I have the onboard sound card on the "MS-7360" mobo.

Thanks in advance!

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??

I already tried getting an answer from the Skype forums but have never got a response. What is happening is ever since I got a new pair of headphones (stealseries Siberia v2 with soundcard) all other sound like media player stop playing sound whenever there is a skype sound like during a call or when it's ringing. I have tried setting the communications option to 'Do Nothing' but that has not fixed the problem. How do I fix this?

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.

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.

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.

A:Can I Listen To Audio On Two Devices At The Same Time?

You can specify within Winamp or other software to use a particular output that is different than default output. So both can work this way at the same time.

What you can't do is clone an output to be same as another output device. You'd need special hardware that handles that, like my spec.

I sold my M-Audio 1010-24/96kHz, so if you're checking specs and wondering, It's no longer an option, Although that would have routed them perfectly.

Thanks in advance for your help!


I'm sorry to say that, form my own experience this is impossible to achieve for free without corrupting your own Audio drivers and by the sounds of it that won't even work in this case!

It is also near impossible to achieve if you pay for it unless you buy some really specialist, expensive software and special extra hardware!

Sorry for dashing your hope but there still is a chance that someone will come up with a great solution to this I've never seen before (although very unlikely ).

A:Talk Talk router, lost connection

Without further detail, it is really impossible to give an opinion.
If you have another computer - with wireless, or by using a wireless usb try that and if that does not lose the signal, it is a fair bet it something with the setup on this computer - is it not.

Sometimes changing the wireless channel may improve the result.
If some other local equipment is using the same channel that could cause the loss of signal.

I am sure it is best to wait until the engineer has been seen as it only 2 days or so
I've got an aol engineer visiting ThursClick to expand...

and then if you still have problems, and he has checked the broadband service to your property, please post back

I'm at a friends house and they were explaining how she had got rid of her antivirus software because of this thing called Talk Talk HomeGuard. Antivirus software is a very importent thing on a computer and I knew that this was a BAD idea. I also read on the TalkTalk faq that:

_________________________________________________________________Will Virus Alerts replace the need for Anti-Virus software?

No, they complement each other. Virus Alerts extends protection to devices unable to use traditional Anti-Virus software as they access websites. i.e. smartphones or games consoles.

Could anybody recomend a good free antivirus untill she gets a paid one?

OK so awhile ago my Pipex account swapped to talk talk since then I was getting disconnect anywhere from every 5 minutes to an hour. I solved this problem buy swapping from a Speedtouch 330 to a netgear N300 DNG2200.

now my connection is perfectly stable I haven't had a disconnect since I swapped which has been a very long time. However since the change my down speed has gone from somewhere around 250kb/s to 120kb/s (so says steam). I think this has something to do with the 330 using G DMT rather then ADSL, but tbh I don't really know. so is there anyway I can reclaim my lost speed I know the line is capable off? with going back to the frustration of repeated disconnects (i had to restart computer on every disconnect because it wouldnt redial otherwise )

Hey everyone-

I'm running Skype (the absolute latest stable release with auto updates on) on my XP sp2 machine. Every single time i use it however (I use video chat), my machine BSOD's on me within 5-30 minutes of usage. This happens even with voice chat only. I get a bsod error message pointing to tcpip.sys most of the times but sometimes i also get a random message at bsod.

I'm using the tcpip.sys patch that was made by lvllord i think that uncaps the maximum number of half open tcpip connections. I did this for my torrent clients. None of them hang the system even when running 24/7.

Any thoughts Oh great Wizards of TSG ?

1. Right click on the speaker icon in the bottom right.
2. Choose Recording Devices
3. In the empty white space, right-click and choose Show Disabled Devices. You should see Stereo Mix appear in the list.

A:spam send in skype account to all skype contacts - cannot load page safety scan

I downloaded the safety scanner from microsoft from my other laptop without any issue.
copied it to a usb, put it on the problem laptop, a full scan and nothing found.
I realize I did had a antivirus paid version (kaspersky internet securuity) on the laptop, as I first said that it had no antivirus.
I only disabled it because it had problems running.
Now I enabled it, updated it and run a full scan. nothing found.
I don't know if skype is the cause and not a virus?  the skype workers told me that the cause could be anything (email, virus on computer).
I mostly use skype on iphone, and here I'm confused with what the skype workers said: one said that iphone can not be infected, so no need to check the iphone.
an other said: you can download an app from app store to scan for viruses, because it is possible that the virus is on the iphone.
This is really not clear anymore.

I have always used Skype for Desktop and only recently found that there is a Skype Modern App on my system.
From what I have read it would seem the best plan would be to ditch the App and just continue with the desktop version.
Have there been any recent changes that would make the the Modern App a better solution than the Desktop version?

A:Skype for Desktop vs Skype Modern App

They have updated it recently so it doesn't continue to ring even when you have answered the desktop version which is why I uninstalled it in the first place. This means in theory you could install both and answer whichever you felt like at the time.

I prefer the look of the desktop version personally so I never re-installed the Modern App version.

Click to call will not go away.  When I try to use the control panel I get a message that 
says, "close Chrome browsers to uninstall".   I've tried doing that and still get that same message.
I've even uninstalled Chrome and re-installed it with the same result.
These two are like a bad dream.   
Any help with completely deleting both would be appreciated.

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

Good Morning:

I have a question for you Vista gurus that is way above my pay grade.

I recently reinstalled the Vista O/S to get rid of a myriad of annoying little glitches. When I reloaded the Vuze bit torrent downloader I got an error message telling me that it had failed to establish listen with port 49423 and to check to see if it was being used by some other application. How do I go about doing this?

Many thanks for any information you good people can provide.

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.
