Sound Card Weird Problem

Q: Sound Card Weird Problem

Hello ,
I have a very strange problem with my sound card and Here is the details ....
My sound Card was working well the day before ...I was just recording from line in and running the audio recorded from line in and no problems occurred ...
Next Day I found that there is no sound and the speaker and the line in and microphone all not working and showing that they were "Not Plugged In"
I tried to reinstall the driver and I even tried to reinstall the windows But this was useless . I also installed the new driver but didn't work
the sound manager showing that they are working fine but ther are not plugged in
and the weird thing is that the optical port "which is part of the sound card " is working fine this means that the sound card isn't faulty or burnt out ??
this is the picture

please Help me .........
thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: Sound Card Weird Problem

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.)

A: Sound Card Weird Problem

Is it that you have selected Digital Audio (S/PDIF) as 'default'. so the speakers cannot be, at the same time.
Right click on 'Speakers' icon, is there an 'Enable' option?

I'm using an audigy 2 zs, just updated the sound card by downloading from creativelab. I have a problem with the card in windows 7 though:

I like to get the treble all the way up, and the bass up a bit, it makes things sound alot nicer. But, everytime I do this, the voices of characters when I watch DVDs or play video games become really low, everything else sounds great though, its just dialogue between characters thats just so low you have to put your ear right next to the speakers to hear them or something, then music from the background is blasting loudly in my ear...the treble and bass setting never gets properly saved also, everything I restart the computer, they get reset.

anyone else experiencing the same problem? It was like this in the beta for me also...

A:Weird sound card problem

You're having 5.1 difficulties. Or you are only using 2 speakers when the sound output needs 6 of them for how you have it set currently.

Check the settings in the driver's app for that. There are users with Creative gear. They could guide you or suggest an alternate driver.

I m trying to fix up an older pc for a friend The motherboard is an Weird sound problem card Asus MEW-AM v an Asus HP hybrid the OS is XP Pro SP The motherboard has no onboard sound so I added an un-branded sound card which had been working OK in a Win pc Its chipset is Fortemedia labelled FM -AU The only labelling on the card itself are the words VER but it also bears a paper sticker that says SP The installation software for which I ve got several sets of XP drivers inserts audio and joystick drivers After the drivers are installed the card tests OK either by using the ForteMedia Control Panel which has been added to the system tray and which can speak the words LEFT and RIGHT when you click TEST or by using any of the standard Windows control panel sound bytes Everything seems normal The weirdness kicks in after the first boot Instead of the familiar and melodious Windows startup music all that can be heard is a sound that might be generated by a weasel who s been half strangled and hung up by his testicles All other sound tests produce similar results that is every sound that worked before the boot now won t Maybe it s the drivers though Weird sound card problem I ve tried all the ones I have without any change Perhaps it s because Windows moans during the install about them not having been approved by Microsoft though that s a common enough message that rarely seems to mean a lot One thing I did note is that when I use the ForteMedia Control Panel after the boot which had worked pre-boot and try to run a test it crashes and a Windows Error report pops up But even if I use msconfig to prevent the ForteMedia Control Panel from further starts it doesn t help Neither does disabling Windows Audio in services disabling the FM joystick controls in System or shifting PCI slots Any suggestions will be gratefully received nbsp

A:Weird sound card problem

did you try kicking it?... Just kidding... it sounds (he, he) like youve tried everything i can think of, other than replacing it. I havnt tried personally, but im sure you could find an old cheap ($25-30 USD) sound card, online or garage sale, or even try calling your local pc stores and asking if they have any old or used ones lying around. Good Luck, and have fun!!!!

p.s. if all elce fails, try kicking it. If it doesn't make it work, maybe it will make you feel better...

Ever since I upgraded from Win 98 to Win 98 SE, I've been having problems trying to play MP3's. First of all, Windows, AIM, and other sounds can still be heard while I'm playing MP3's, which is a behavior I do not want. I can't figure out how to fix this. When I open the Windows Audio Mixer, the controls I get are: Speaker, Wave, Microphone, Line, CD Player, and Synthesizer. The controls that I used to get with my old version of Windows, I think, were: Wave, Microphone, External Line, CD Player. Also, often when I open a file or an application, Winamp makes a crackling noise on top of the song that I'm playing at the time. If it makes any difference, I have an Avance ALS100+ sound card. Could someone help me out? I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

i tried downloading ourTunes so as to share music in my residence hall. my music was playing perfectly fine through iTunes. then, after downloading some music, i started to play it but everything came out choppy and distorted, as if i were listening to it all underwater with lots of bubbles in the way.
i got rid of ourTunes but now the music i already have is coming out funky.

any ideas?

Basically, everything works, except for voice chat.
Whenever Skype is launched, or Teamspeak, or even the Steam calls, it completely crashes the sound of the computer.
It's not the output devices, or the automatic volume lowering from communications, it just completely stops every sound.

I'm having a weird sound problem on a Dell Inspiron 700m laptop.

On startup, the sound/microphone doesn't work on the laptop. Checking "Control panel", "Sounds and Audio Devices" doesn't show any problems, neither does right clicking on "My Computer", "Properties", "Device Manager", "Sound, video and game controllers" show any issues. All seems to be working normally.

To get sound/microphone to work, I have to install the latest sound driver that I downloaded from Dell before sound is restored and the microphone will work. The downloaded file is a standard Installshield executable file, not just driver files.

The problem is, however, after shutting down and/or restarting the laptop, the sound/microphone is not working again, and I have to re-install the driver again to get it to work.

Any idea what's causing this problem?

I have XP and IE7. I use Google chrome. For no apparent reason I can no longer get sound on You Tube and some news videos on Google news. Some new videos work. Facebook videos seem to be fine. This also is occurring on my wife's computer, linked wireless to my main computer. This happened about 3 days ago and I'm at a loss. I am not a real "techie", but I can follow directions and learn.
I hope you good folys can help.

Okay this is the weirdest thing. When I go on the computer all the little sounds are there, like the AIM noises for example, but when I try to play a song it doesn't work. I go to Volume Controls and I noticed the Wave bar is all to way down. So I move it back up and I can then hear the song. I try to play another song, and it goes back down. What do I do to fix this stupid thing, thanks

i kinda got my sound card working... but its weird.. i got to this site which has SOUND in the site and i can hear it, but when i try to play a song i downloaded or play a game with sound it doesnt work

Relevancy 55.04%

a few months ago, I opened up a .exe program (a game) to find that there was no sound in that program. I closed out of it and went on the internet. There was sound there. Certain programs such as my SNES9X emulator and minecraft work, but most .exe applications do not have any sound. I have absolutely no sound with internet, although when I play certain games like Runescape, much like the downloadable version, has no sound. This has been bothering me for several months now, and I would like to get my sound up and running again as soon as possible.

I have a Windows 7 Intel 64 bit laptop, and I don't seem to have a sound card installed. I've run the windows diagnostic for audio errors, but no errors came up.

Please, this is becoming a constant problem, and I do not wish to spend money on a repair.

Relevancy 55.04%

well my sound has been working fine until the past few days. i would be listening to songs, and a certain insturment would drain out and i can't hear it. however i can hear all other instruments perfectly.

for example the song revolution by the beatles, i could hear only the vocals and the drums perfectly, but the guitar and bass are really faint.

this happens on many other songs too.

also when i record the song using the "what you hear" feature, on AIM's recording feature, and then play it back, i can hear all the instruments fine.

Ok, so I reinstalled windows XP on my older computer, and the sound will not work at all. I have installed all of the motherboard drivers and sound drivers. Nothing is muted, and onboard sound is enabled in the BIOS. The weird thing is, the microphone actually records. I have tried every plug in the back for the sound. The headphones i'm using work as I have tried them in other things, and they have worked on this computer in the past. This is REALLY confusing me. There are also no conflicts in device manager, so everything SHOULD be working. Here are the specs:

Asus a7v8x-mx motherboard
Socket A 2500+
512 samsung ram
8x CD burner

I have reformatted several times in the past, but I have no clue whats going on with this.

ok, this is a weird sound problem. Whenever I open an MP3, I can hear the music from all four speakers (which is normal). However, when I switch windows to another task, the sound only comes from my front speakers.

Switching back to Winamp (which is playing the MP3) I once again get 4-channel sound.

I wish to have the sound coming from all channels all the time....what exactly is causing this problem?
Thanks to any responses.

I've been working on this computer for about 5 hours now trying to get the graphics card to work. It's my friends computer, and he said he bought the motherboard, and it came with a "nvidia geforce 7025 / nvidia nforce 630a" card. It USE to work in the past, but ever since he upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate, (It says the software isn't genuine), the card won't work!.. I've tried EVERYTHING.. From auto detecting the needed drivers, uninstalling them and reinstalling them.. But NOTHING works. The onboard works, but when I change the cord over to the card port, .. My dell monitor goes from the "self test" screen to a blank black screen, with the power button being orange, not green.)..

Device Manager sees the card, and says it's working properly.. but it's not!

I don't know what to do anymore!.. Any suggestions?

Hello guys. It's been a long time since I last used my desktop computer because I moved to another country and I wasn't able to bring it. Now my mom asked me to fixed it so that my sister can use it. I'm just having a weird problem with the display because sometimes the screen will go black for a few seconds and then it will appear again. After it appears again, an error below appears saying something about a kernel failure but it has successfully restarted. I updated my graphics card driver but it still happened. My graphics card is a Palit GeForce GTX 550Ti. Any clues to this?

Edit: Looks like other users have been experiencing this issue too. I just saw it after I posted this one.

I bought a new graphics card for my desktop yesterday. it;s the NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS. I put it into the slot marked "PCI x16", hooked up the VGA monitor cable, and turned the PC on. The screen stays black, and the light on the monitor stays orange(supposed to be blue) When i hook my monitor onto the onboard vga slot, the monitor works fine.

My roommate tried my card in HIS computer, and it worked. we have the same power supply, so i eliminated that as a problem. I put his graphics card in my pc and it worked fine. what could the problem be?

Forgive me if this sounds uninformed, I am not into computers at all.

I have recently switched from Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit to 64 bit. Now whenever I listen to music on youtube or after I download it, it sounds differently then it used to. I'm not even sure how to describe it... It's still possible to listen to music but the music, especially the vocals, sound way deeper. Is it supposed to be that way and is there any way to make it sound the way it used to?

Hi everyone I m a newbie here but the standard of advice and helpfulness seems very high so here goes I was running a GF with no probs at all Then I installed fresh memory replacing x with x and at the same time put in a more powerful fan for the card which was tending to overheat This required taking out and then replacing the card Ever since then the card won t work It seems to function in a basic sort of way the video output is from the card not the MB and its Weird unistallable graphics problem card name is flashed up on start-up But everytime i launch windows xp I get an install new hardware message and all attempts actually to load the NVidia drivers fail I usually get a quot bad data quot message at this point even though I have tried several sets of drivers and downloaded frsh ones On device manager and dxdiag Weird unistallable graphics card problem the card is not showing up at all under display all I get is a yellow -ed quot VGA device quot not named under quot Other devices quot running generic drivers I ve tried Driver Cleaner and I ve put in a cheap alternative card an MX GF and get exactly the same problem so I don t THINK it is a card malfunction Does anyone have any smart ideas cos I ve tried everything I really don t want to do a re-install of XP as I ve got loads of photos music and documents on the HD Thanks a lot to any of you who can think of anything C nbsp

A:Weird unistallable graphics card problem

Run a memory test to make sure your new RAM is OK.

Wouldn't hurt to try a PCI video card in case you messed up the AGP slot somehow.

Hi all. My computer has a very strange problem with nvidia graphic cards. For some reason they dont work in Windows 2000 or XP. They work perfectly in 98 though. When i try to use an nvidia card in my computer with either xp or 2000 it says "This Device Could Not Start (Code 10). Yet any other brand works fine. I tried to install new graphic card drivers but that didnt help. Could this problem be with my bios? Do i need to flash it? Or is my motherboard not compatible with nvidia video cards? The motherboards chipset is the VIA Apollo PRO 133.
Ive tried both a geforce MX440 and a Vanta LT but they both do exactly the same thing.

These are my system specs:
Windows 2000 Pro SP4
Intel Pentium III 800mhz
192MB Ram
10GB Hdd
Nvidia Vanta LT 8MB AGP

Thanks, Nissanman

A:Weird Nvidia Video Card Problem

You have a very old/outdated motherboard and system. If you can get along with any other card besides the Nvidia cards, go ahead and use them. I really doubt if a bios upgrade is available for your board

Okay, about a week ago, my other PC would say Network connection unplugged, the lights on the network card were not on at all but the internet ont his pc worked so I figured it had to be the network card which was the problem.

So I purchased a new network card and installed it. That also, did not fix the problem. No lights would come on it. So i took it out, and installed it in a different PCI slot and voula! It worked. So I am going behind the pc to put the air shields on the empty PCI slot, go back up and it stopped working. No lights on the new network card at all again. So it worked for one minute and then stopped. So now I have no idea what the problem could be..please help!

A:Really weird problem, got new network card, put it in dif. PCI slot, worked for 1 min

Okay, I think I figure it out, I went and fiddled with the network cable connecting to the card and if i pushed the RJ-45 connector into the slow it would work but if i let it go it would stop so obviously, it's the cable. Does anyone know how to fix that part now?

A:Weird interference problem (WiFi and video card)

Well, here's the happy ending to my story. After exchanging my NVidia card for another, and also updating the BIOS and upgrading all the motherboard, chipset, NVidia and D-Link drivers to their latest versions and realizing none of these solved the problem, I decided to change my wireless card.

I exchanged my D-Link WDA-2320 PCI wireless card with someone who has a Linksys WMP54G PCI card and problem solved! My D-Link card lives happy in his machine, and his Linksys card is happy with the NVidia card in my computer!

As some of you might remember a few weeks ago I had a problem with sound after I built a new PC and kept my old Win installation using sysprep Onboard sound issue with new PC build The problem was that the volume levels were off and instead of having a normal flatline volume were you could hear everything clearly at a good volume level certain sounds were too quiet to hear and others were deafening I came to this forum and after a few responses I decided to do a fresh installation of windows which only did a little to help the particular sound perrsists sound Sound problem new after even card problem Figuring it was a problem with the onboard sound I bought this ASUS XONAR DG Xonar DG Sound Card - Newegg com After I installed the sound card the volume problem persisted and was pretty Sound problem perrsists even after new sound card much exactly the same as before Thankfully this time though there was a setting in the device's audio center called quot SVN quot which is smart volume This setting actually did fix the problem a little and the sound was a lot closer to how I remember it being on my old HP pavilion SVN is not without it's own problems though Now there's clicking noises audio drop outs stuttering and general low quality with that setting on What's more in most games I've played the voices are hard to hear and tend to be drowned out by music or background noise Even though these problems sound bad it's more tolerable than it is with the SVN settings off Without that setting the volume issue goes right back to how it was before I installed the sound card Some might say I'm picky but I know something is wrong with the sound it's not Sound problem perrsists even after new sound card at all like it was on my old PC which had perfect sound I am very very frustrated with this whole thing there has got to be something I'm missing The sound card has nothing to do with the onboard sound correct It is a separate sound device on it's own so why does it have the same exact audio issues as the onboard sound It should be fine without having to turn SVN on so what's the deal Is it my headphones I can't imagine what's causing this and if there is no solution I'm prepared to give up and deal with it

A:Sound problem perrsists even after new sound card

Not all sound is at the same volume level. One MP3, for example, can be louder or softer than another. Same way with wav audio files, audio from the internet, audio on DVD's, etc. System sounds can be at different levels from different programs, and same way with streaming audio from the internet.

I have Audio CD's, both commercial and burned that have different volume levels between songs.

I have a home recording studio and when I mixdown songs, I do it to a preset level. I then run them through an audio editior and set them all to the same reference level. Then when I burn an audio CD all the songs are at the same (or nearly) same volume level.

BTW, when you installed the separate sound card, did you disable the on-board audio in the BIOS? If not, there can be conflicts and varying problems.

After I installed Windows 7,I started having a problem with sound.My sound card is onboard Realtek High Definition Audio.The problem is,sometimes I hear a "cht pht" while listening to music,radio,game on computer.After noticing this problem,I installed the latest drivers of Realtek,but nothing changed.Also I tried installing my motherboard's sound driver,but again nothing changed.Then I tried a previous driver cause I heard that it works better but nothing changed.Also I tried using other speakers,but nothing changed.I tried playing with sound settings,including "block all sound effects" but I still have the problem.

What can be the problem,this problem started after I installed Windows 7.

A:Vid Card/Sound Card IRQ Sharing: Is This A Problem?

After thinking about it I remembered that Daemon-Toolz mentioned its need for the SCSI/RAID driver during its installation. SO I uninstalled the program and the SCSI/RAID Host Controller entry disappeared from the list and was replaced by Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System. After rebooting my system the X-Fi moved to IRQ 19. The X-Fi has IRQ 19 all to itself and the 8800GTX shares its IRQ with the Silicon Image SiI 3531 SATA Controller.

Now my only question is am I at any kind of performance disadvantage because the X-Fi is now farther back in the IRQ list?

I just installed a new Ensoniq PCI sound card. My old card was onboard, an AC '97 or something. I changed the jumper settings (J7 from 1-2 to 2-3) My computer is an eMachine eTower 633ids.

Here's the problem...the sound skips. But it did this before I even installed the new card. That's why I bought a new card, because I thought it'd make the skipping disappear. There's this game that came installed with Windows ME, a pinball game, and the sound skips in that. It also skips repeatedly in the game "USAF". We're talking major skipping. The CD doesn't have a single scratch on it.

So I disabled the old sound card via the device driver. Am I doing anything wrong? My sound doesn't sound any different, and it's making me really mad.

Do you get the same error code/message using Dell Jukebox, or Realplayer. Originally I was going to say does Windows bootup during startup okay or are you receiving an error code. Is your sound card onboard or plug n play. Try going to manufacturers website to upgrade the latest driver(s). Also try installing Version Tracker Pro for driver issues

Hi Guys!
I could use some help. I have an ASUS p5q SE2 motherboard, which after the windows 10 update would not launch VIA HD. The sound was not working, so I bought a Sound Blaster sound card. After installing it in the computer, I disabled the integrated sound card in BIOS, installed the drivers, but only the front panel headphone jack works, there is no sound on the 5.1. Can someone please help? Thanks

I do not see any Software drivers for this VIA since Windows 7 in 2009. Did the VIA drivers get updated from Windows and did you check Device Manager under Sound,Video and Game controllers to see if it was listed ?

No need to disable integrated Sound device when installing a PCI sound card. How are you hooking up this new card to external speakers and which model Sound blaster card did you purchase ? Usually front jack will only work for integrated card unless hooking PCI card to a motherboard connector i believe.

I hope I explain this right. I installed a new sound card into a computer that is used to run a program called Media Play. It is used for a school channel that broadcasts school ads over cable and also plays the weekly football game the following week. Anyway after installing the new card the music that plays for the ads work fine. When the game starts to play the software acts crazy and turns down all the knobs to off. The line in where all the sound is coming from does not work until I go in and turn the line in back up. No matter what I do every time the scheduled game starts it turns it down so no sound comes on. Does anyone have any idea what could be happening? Thanks. I will try to contact the company that sold us the computer but they are not easy to get a hold of.

A:Sound card problem.

Check the options in the software that you are
using to play the game video.
It is probably taking over control of the sound card.
Look in there for audio settings and presets.

so the computer can't detect your sidewinder3d at all, right? or is it just not working?
if it can't detect anything at all, have you got it to work on other machines? other OS's?
does sound like the sidewinder has a faulty/damaged connector.

Okay. Yet another problem with hardware. I have a sound card and in my old computer it used to work. But when I put it into another computer I had with windows XP (The either computer had Windows 2000) it stopped working. I tried to update the drivers but that didn't work. I tried going to the manufacture website and their drivers installed something called C-media which didn't make the sound work. So now I am stuck with s=a soundless computer. The type of sound card is: ESS 1969 PC I audio Drive (WDM).

I think that's it. I doubt it because the driver isn't even installed so it might be something else. I'm not for sure.

The only option here is "ok" so I click that and get options to point to the drive and folder where the data being looked for is at.

I am having a problem with my sound.

It started with the Far Cry demo and the full version of Singles. The sound seemed very distorted and for lack of a better term, "messed up." Sound would seem laggy, jittery, static, and the like. My sound card plays music and other games fine, but all the new games I am getting don't seem to work. This includes Doom 3, which I get NO sound for at all. The outsourced tech support did me no good so I am turning to my most valuable resource, the internet, for help. I would appreciate any troubleshooting advice you can provide.

I was having problems with my puter not loading windows completely.After a long time playing around with it,I found a problem.I disabled the sound card and it loads OK.Question I have is,sound card is on the motherboard.Can I install a sound card seperately or do I have to replace the motherboard?I have not worked much on puters but thought I would give it a shot.It is an old one and I am getting a new one and thought I would keep this for the kids to play on.So if I do any more damage,no big loss.

When I use VOIP or just record anything using my mic, everyone hears every sound I hear. This includes sounds from in the game I'm playing, music I'm listening to, and echos from them talking to me. An example would be me listening to music while talking on ventrilo, when I hold down the talk button, they will hear the music I'm listening to, but amplified to about twice as loud.

I recently purchased a new headset, thinking it was a problem with my old one, but I'm having the same problem. Is this a sound card issue, or just some settings I need to adjust?

BTW, I am using Realtek HD audio onboard sound.

A:Sound card problem

I don't know about your sound card, but mine has an option in the Mic Advanced settings called Mic Boost(+20dB). When I have this option turned off, only something right next to my microphone can be heard. When this option is on, it becomes way more sensitive. I would deduce that with a headset microphone, this option should be turned off, if it exists. And also, the Mic's playback volume control should be muted so that feedback doesn't occur.

I have an M Audio Delta AP Multi sound card on my PC - it was installed when I needed a better sound card than the original Realtek AC97.Now I just want to use this pc with some desk top speakers instead of studio monitors.Originally my monitors were connected with twin phono leads,but my desk top speakers only have a green mini jack, but since I've connected them I'm not getting any sound!

Only my M Audio card shows in the device manager,but my Realtek card was there for a short time now it's disapeared.My speakers worked for a short while when listening to music but I lost my sound when I went to watch a film.I downloaded Realtek again but it hasn't shown up in the sounds and audio devices.Any advice would be appreciated....I'm not very technical by the way ....

i recently upgraded form windows vista to windows 7, ever since then my sound card (SB X-Fi Xtreme audio) hasn't worked

i have tried downloading the latest drivers for it and my computer says it has them but still nothing, i have also tried uninstalling it and then reinstalling it without any luck.

i was wondering if it was possible to get it to run using the drivers from xp or vista and if so how would i go about doing it?

A:sound card problem

Go to start/control panel/sound.
On the playback tab,make sure speakers(sounblaster extreme) is set as default.
If not,click it then click set default.
Any other audio device could have been set as default during the upgrade.
Like HD audio on a video card.

I’m trying to connect a record turntable (AT-PL50) to my HP PC computer, Windows XP. I can get a signal using the microphone jack and record satisfactorily through the Cakewalk software but, of course, only in mono.) I can't get a signal using the stereo inputs. I've been into Control Panel, selected various inputs, used volume sliders, set the turntable to pre-amp on and off. Any ideas would be gratefully received!

A:Sound Card Problem

In which stereo sound card slot do you connect the turntable to? Is it line-in? Make sure that you are using a stereo jack to connect to the sound card. If you use stereo jack make sure it's not damaged by replacing it or by connecting it to another device as they tend to have faults in my experience.

As for microphone getting mono signal is normal (but according to your post you already know)

Also, did you set your sound card/windows to select line in to get signal?

I have a Yahama OPL3-SAx WDM Driver sound card (am I even saying that right)??

When I go into MSN Voice option it says:
It is not possible to use a microphone and speakers at the same time with the half-duplex sound card in your machine. You may need to contact the sound card manufacturer to update the device driver."

My sounds microphone (mic & handset), and speakers all work fine in other programs. I feel like I might of checked something once that said half-duplex. Does anyone know where this setting is.. or better yet, how I can solve this problem, even find out if my sound card actually IS half-duplex, not full??

A:Sound card problem

I'm not sure if it is full duplex of not. If not, it won't work. The fact that it works in other software doesn't mean much - those programs may simply support half duplex.

You can try the latest drivers from here - they may help:

I hope I explain this right. I installed a new sound card into a computer that is used to run a program called Media Play. It is used for a school channel that broadcasts school ads over cable and also plays the weekly football game the following week. Anyway after installing the new card the music that plays for the ads work fine. When the game starts to play the software acts crazy and turns down all the knobs to off. The line in where all the sound is coming from does not work until I go in and turn the line in back up. No matter what I do every time the scheduled game starts it turns it down so no sound comes on. Does anyone have any idea what could be happening? Thanks. I will try to contact the company that sold us the computer but they are not easy to get a hold of.

Try this:

Remove the card in Device Manager and shut down

Remove the card from the motherboard and restart without it.

Download the most current drivers and install them

Shut down and reinsert the card on the motherboard

Startup and let Windows "discover" it and load drivers.

All of a sudden for no reason I can think of, the inbuilt speakers on my sisters computer stopped working. Earlier (a few hours before it stopepd working) the speakers were working fine. We did not do anything.

We have tried external speakers, headphones, everything but no sound. The only time I can hear anything is when I push certain haedphone hard against my ear. Even then I can barely hear anything.

it seems as though the sound has been turned way down so I can no longer hear it.

Come to think of it, it may of stopped working after a windows update. I'm running windows XP.

Any ideas?

That's the driver for dos, if you don't play dos games don't worry about it.

when i play my songs that i have downloaded in winamp (or any program for that matter) some songs have major distortion, but others are as crisp as they could ever be.

its always the same with each particular song, it never varies.

i have adjusted the audio properties of my sound, the speaker volume itself and turned the 3d effects on/off.

is it just that my sound card isnt up to the job and/or broken?

any advice would be appreciated....the sound card that i have is still the basic one i got with my pc 3 years ago........
