Audio for some games stopped working...

Q: Audio for some games stopped working...

I don't know why but some games that I play have no audio. I go in the settings of the games and its not the game itself. I think its my computer and I'm not sure if its some settings that got put on some how. One thing im confused about is, it's not all the games, some do have sound but its not the ones I play the most. What should I do?

Games I play are, Without sound: StarCraft 2, Diablo 3, Team Fortress 2, Garry's Mod (or simplified my Valve and Blizzard games)
With sound: Terraria, Realm Of The Mad God,

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.

A:Solved: M-Audio PCI Delta Series Audio Card Stopped Working. Please Help

To start, I would uninstall any of the m-audio software. Once done, shutdown the system and pull out the card. Pw ON the system and let it fully boot. Download the latest driver for your sound card. Now shutdown again and install the sound card. Restart and attempt the driver install.

A:All games have stopped working - Help?

Those temps are way too high if correct, what are you using to check them?

Download and install HWMonitor, run the program and screenshot it with your PC just sat idle at the desktop. Then, leaving HWMonitor running in the background, run a game for a couple of mins (assuming you can without a crash), exit the game and take another screenshot of HWMonitor. Post the two screenshots in a reply here.

Have you recently cleaned out the dust etc from your case?

Hi,
Last night my Vista Ultimate x64 said there was 1 available update. This update was SP2 for Vista.

So I let it install. After the PC rebooted SP2 was installed, but, none of my games worked. Call Of Duty WAW, Call Of Duty 4, Prototype, Overlord, bionic commander each one of these games started to boot and then either shows me a blank screen, or crashes to desktop.

I found that there was later versions of my graphics card and my sound card so I updated both of these. It made no difference. I then uninstalled and re-installed Bionic Commander. Again no difference this game didn't work.

Anyone else had this problem? Anyone solved this problem. I really don't want to rebuild my PC, especially when I'll be doing that in a couple of months for Windows 7.

I have a laptop with Windows Vista. All of a sudden there is a red and white X over the sound icon on the system tray. If i put the cursor over it, it says "No Audio Output Device" is installed. I have Googled this a few times, and the first suggestion I am seeing is to go to Device Manager and uninstall and reinstall the driver. There is no sound driver there anymore all of a sudden... I've gone to HP's website and tried to manually install the driver, and it installs but I get an error saying "Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the MEDIA device for this driver".

I'm out of ideas... Anyone? I have an HP dv2810ca.

So i've had my audio connected via dvi-hdmi cable (750ti) and its been working fine for months.

this morning i blew a bunch of dust out of my system with an air compressor and noticed when i turned it back on it wasn't giving audio anymore.

tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers that didn't work.

The Tv still comes up in the "Set up digital audio" options in the control panel, but windows isn't seeing the audio anymore.

any ideas?

A:TV audio just stopped working.

Is HDMI set as the default audio playback device? HDMI audio either is generated internally in the video card or is fed from a digital audio S/PDIF connection on the motherboard. Since you were inside, either the cable connection has been disturbed or if that is not how yours works, reseat the video card and see if that helps (Reseat - with the PC powered off, remove the video card then reinsert making sure its fully and correctly seated on the motherboard).

I've seen many posts about fixing the msls31.dll problem with google searches. Microsoft's fix is the sfc scannow which you did and didn't fix it.

Although you have no audio, the best option is another forum section. After you get the msls31.dll problem (and any other system issue) corrected you can then address the sound (if it is still an issue).

The Software section may be a place to start. Repost there, as I can't move this to a different section. Software - Windows 7 Help Forums

Hi everyone,

Big problem is at hand, all my games have stopped working under Vista.
One game runs only but with physics glitches, thats Crysis.

I noticed this when I wanted to play Racedriver Grid, and it wouldn't start. So I thought maybe the game needs to be reinstalled, but no it didnt work.
Then after not being able to fix it in about 3 hours I gave up and wanted to play something else. And that didnt work either.
Now before anyone asks, what I installed....nothing. No driver updates, no antivirus, the machine isn't even connected to the internet. And one night I was playing and the next morning nothing worked.

Please help, if anyone encountered this problem.

Thanks

I recently did some housecleaning with my pc and now the audio isn t working I had shut off some services not windows audio service I also used adaware programs of which only a few low threat items were listed Overall the system is pretty clean But for some reason the audio stopped working I have updated the creative soundblaster live drivers just in case I patched them as well Still nothing so I uninstalled the audio I then reinstalled it and also moved it into different pci slots Windows picks it up each time and everything seems to work fine If I run Windows Media Player it acts like it s playing the music If I run system sounds through audio in the control panel they act like they play fine But still no sound coming from the speakers I switched the audio card with another It also installed fine but still no sound I then tested the speakers - Audio XP No has stopped Audio, working. Pro on another system and they had sound on that system I just don t know what could have gone wrong I went back and reenabled all services just in case there was a dependency for Windows Audio that was keeping it from working I just don t understand how the light on the speaker that shows its getting audio from another system works fine but hooking it up to this one the green light doesn t come on It s like the signal isn t being transmitted out from Windows even though the audio programs are saying it is I also checked audio properties in the taskbar to make sure that for audio playback that the audio card is the selected device I also checked to XP Pro - No Audio, Audio has stopped working. make sure that the audio is not muted I have patched the system and updated all the drivers for all the hardware It s a Dell Everything was working fine There is one unknown device but I believe it to be part of the help and support feature that DELL had for this series of systems But that was always present before I don t know if there is something internal to how windows handles audio that needs to be reinstalled I really don t want to reinstall windows Thanks in advance nbsp

A:XP Pro - No Audio, Audio has stopped working.

When the speakers are connected to another system, as soon as the other systems turn on, the green power light for the speakers turn on. These speakers are powered by an adapter that plugs into the wall, they aren't powered by usb. But when those speakers are plugged into this pc's audio card, the green light does not come on at power on or even when fully into windows. Its like the pci slots aren't getting power or something? But if that was so, wouldn't the audio cards not be read by the system? So, I don't know, so confused.

This happened once before.
I somehow got it back by reapplying the IDT drivers.
However, now seems as though I can't get those drivers to install (error message is hardware not supported by drivers, which it was before and working). Within the device manager, when attempting to update drivers, error comes up saying that the "co-installer" needs to do something.
Any thoughts?
Thank you,

A:smart audio stopped working

You need to be more specific, did your audio (speakers/headphones) stop working, do you get a DirectSound error message. I have found that when the audio cuts out on my system (rare, but does happen), I get it working again by going into control panel, services, and stopping and starting the WINDOWS AUDIO service gets the audio going again.

My audio has stopped working for Windows and Gaim, but Winamp and various games are still fine. I've reinstalled the drivers many times and uninstalled every possible audio device, but I always end up with the same thing.

In Winamp's WaveOut plugin, the first device is messed up.
In DirectSound everything is fine.
In Windows' sound manager, the preview button is greyed out.
I think this means there is something wrong with my wave settings, I just don't know how to fix it. Hope the pics help, let me know if you need more info.

The only way to fix it is by right clicking on the little speaker by the clock, clicking sounds, then it asks if I want to turn the audio back on.

It's so irritating, how do I fix this?

A:Windows Audio Has Stopped Working :(

This is caused by stapo64.dll, which - from name - is a driver by IDT Audio. If you are not sure about this device and/or its driver, whether or not it's actually a component of your PC, then you'll wanna check the driver using virustotal.com. The file's located in Windows/System32 directory. If the file turns up clean, then find an update for it at your audio device manufacturer or your PC vendor's website.

I just updated my computer and about 30 minutes after the update the earbuds I use to listen to music just stopped working but my headphones work perfectly fine.It's not an issue with my earbuds because I used them on my phone when they stopped working on the computer and they worked just fine.  It can't be the front jacks that are screwing up because I uninstalled the drivers and installed them again to see if it would work and they installed when I plugged them in the front audio jack. IDT also detects them when I have them plugged in... The earbuds work when I plug them into the audio jacks at the back of the desktop Appearently my computer doesn't want to register the front jacks anymore...

No sound at all !
After messing around for quite a while, I tried uninstalling and re-installing the drivers, that hasn't worked.
I've just done a system restore, and that hasn't worked either.
I've run MBAM & Microsoft Security Essentials, and neither has shown any problems.

I have a dual boot Win 7, Win 8 setup. Suddenly the audio has stopped working on Win 8. (Works fine on Win 7) I checked for driver updates, even "installed" an old driver which didn't actually install. The volume control shows its trying to work, puff of green comes and goes at the bottom of the slider.

If you have had this problem and solved it please let me know. Other suggestions welcome however I've tried "cleaning" for other concerns and that made a real mess of the setups for several programs. I suppose I could do a refresh but that's equivalent to a re-install... what a pain.

I guess I looked in the wrong place for answers and they moved my posting to this area. Unfortunately it appears others have the same problem with no solution. I did try updating the video driver along with all available Win 8 updates. Still no audio.

I have all my programs running well on the Win 7 partition so I'm thinking of doing a Refresh. If that "refreshes" back to the original installation I assume the many many updates will be required. Any idea how long that will take?

A:Audio CDs/Blank CDRs stopped working

It's possible that your drive is failing and you will just need to purchase a different one. You could try these fixes, to see if one works.

1.) Change the "DVD Region", the current setting could be causing the problem.

2.) Check your drive cable connecting your drive(s) to the motherboard. If you have two drives attached to one cable as "slave" and "master" - try just disconnecting any other drive and leaving just the Lite On drive, to see if that fixes the problem.

3.) Try cleaning the laser of your drive with compressed air or a cleaning disk.

Hello,
I recently put together a new system using a MSI K9NBPM2-FID mobo, Athlon 64 x2 5200, 2 Gb of Corsair XMS, and a Seagate 500 Gb SATA hard drive. I installed windows xp with no problem and everything worked. I then shut down the system and reconnected some old ide hard drives to transfer files that I wanted from the old system. After the transfer was complete, I shut down the pc and removed the old hard drives. I powered back up and there was no sound. I have checked in BIOS, tried uninstalling/reinstalling the drivers and audio devices/codecs, and tried reinstalling windows twice. I have also tried plugging the stereo into a different device to make sure it wasn't the stereo. Does anybody have any ideas if there is anything else that is fixable or is it most likely that the audio hardware failed after 1 day? Thank you for any suggestions or help.
 

A:Motherboard's onboard audio stopped working

If you re-installed Windows twice and sound didn't work: did you then go to device manager and see that all is O.K.? Do you have a sound card that needs drivers or still needs to be reinstalled? All that I know audio on my Pc's is Window's "multimedia audio controller"...Sound card and it's drivers and installing it...then your speaker system. I bet this will turn out to be a simple thing like mute turned on somewhere or something. Good Luck.

Just wondering if anyone else has experienced a similar issue, its an asrock k7gs41s I believe. Its also running XP, and I'd rather not format it, unless this would be the only likely fix.

Cheers,
Nic
 

A:AC97 Audio stopped working randomly.

im sorry to say I also have the A97 sound stuff in my lappy
one day i was playing happily ... listening to music ... then the speakers started to distort!
i turned off the music and ran some speaker tests and eventually the problem cleared up.
next time i turned the laptop on i didnt hear anything .. when i went to play music i got the error "media player cannot play the file as there is no audio hardware present"

i had a look in device manager and my sound stuff wasnt there

restarted the system and it worked fine again

but a few days later the windows seems to think that the audio hardware does not exist in my machine!! its so frustrating!
i contacted acer and they said to return my laptop to factory settings ... which didnt work
so acer wanted to take my laptop from me ... for 8 weeks!!!! i cant realistically be without my laptop for more than a week as i need it for work, presentations and university.
even though my laptop is still in warrenty period they will not give me a like for like transfer!

in the end and bought a really nice creative 5.1 external sound card and its really good!

should have been 45 but because it was the last one in stock at comet they sold it to me for 20

tho i really would like my on-board sound to work again because lugging external speakers about isnt really handy.

so i guess my advice is to expect the worst and buy another sound card preferably creative!


if anyone has any suggestions i woudl love to hear them!!

thanks

I have an E6540 connected to an E-Port docking station, running Windows 7 64 Professional.
I just upgraded everything to the latest version, i.e. BIOS to A16, Audio drivers and audio manager to NCN00_WN32_6.0.1.6069_A11, and now the speaker jack on the dock is no longer working. It does even show up on the list of audio devices. The built in speakers/microphone and the headset jack on the laptop works fine, as does everything else on the dock (video, USB ...).

A:E6540 E-Port audio stopped working

After upgrading BIOS to A17, the dock port now works as "headphone", provided that nothing is connected to the headset port on the machine itself.

Hello, recently my computer has been crashing to a desktop without any of my icons, or when the disc drive trys to burn something. So i tried to do a system restore and all that happened was my Audio stopped working as well as my mouse. Ive managed to fix the mouse, have run a virus scan and presumably cleaned whatever the problem is, yet i still cant install drivers for my realtek audio, nvidia hd audio and my DVD burner. Ive tried installing in safe mode, uninstalling/disabling the drivers. My windows updater seems to be screwed up as well since i cannoy manually activate it. Any suggestions?

A:Mouse/Audio/Disc Drivers stopped working

There are no drivers required for any optical drives including your DVD burner. They are provided by the Windows OS.
Go to Start/Search and type devmgmt.msc Right click the devmgmt results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Device Manager, do you have any devices with Yellow flags? If so, these devices need drivers installed.
What is the make and model# of your computer? Go to the manufacturers support/download drivers site and type in your make and model# or your service tag # and download the Chipset driver first and any other drivers you need from the Device Manager.
If your computer boots to a blank desktop with no icons, then press CTRL+ALT+DEL and start the Task Manager. Go up to File/New Task (Run...) and type in explorer.exe and press enter. This should bring back your icons.
If you have a desktop, go to Start/Search and type CMD right click the CMD results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt type chkdsk /R and press enter. Now type a Y for Yes and reboot the computer. Check Disk will start at next bootup and go through 5 stages. It will take a while. It should repair any problems.

I bought a Gateway E56R41u to replace my Acer netbook. I'm really happy with this machine. However, I downloaded the free upgrade to Windows 8.1 and my audio quit working. I've downloaded all the drivers that I could find and nothing works. Is there a driver for another machine that will work with my Gateway?

A:Realtek HD Audio stopped working after I upgraded Windows

There is a generic driver available from RealTek, but if you have reinstalled the correct driver from Gateway, I doubt that the direct from RealTek will help.

Are there any other problems that you are aware of, after the 8.1 update? I don't recall this being a problem with audio.

Go to the Device Manager and display what is listed in the Sounds Video and Game Controllers section. Post back on what is listed there, including any error codes. Better yet, post a screen shot of that section.

Hello,
I have a problem with SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio on my HP - nc6220 laptop, WinXP professional sp2.

SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio just stopped working, I tried reinstalling it but it always says that there was a problem during installation and it might not work properly.

In Control Panel>Sounds and Audio devices it's all grayed out so I cannot do anything there.
In device manager there is a yellow exclamation mark, I tried disable-enable but it does not help.
I also tried updating the driver, re-enabling windows audio in services, even reinstalled Windows and installing sp3.

Also I tried an USB sound card and it is working well.

Is there anything else I could do, or maybe SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio is just broken and cannot be fixed?

My sound stopped working a week ago, and everything I have tried hasn't worked. I've had this computer for 2 years using vista.

Here are the symptoms:
In the "playback and recording devices", it says my headphones are working.
If I try to do the "test" option, it gives me a failed to play test tone error.
If I use my microphone on another laptop that also has vista, it works. I've also tried multiple headphones and speakers.


It's obviously plugged in. I have tried reinstalling the drivers and I've restarted my pc, still doesn't work
I have tried restarting windows audio in services.msc, doesn't work
the "roll back drivers" option is greyed out for me in device manager
Googling hasn't helped me either, none of the solutions so far have solved my problem. Even some method involving regedit.
Does anyone know?

A:[SOLVED] Audio randomly stopped working, I can't figure out how to fix it

Try running SFC. Check out the information at the following link and follow the instructions. It will run and if it passes, it will tell you it didn't find any integrity issues. Your other option is to restore your system to an earlier date when the sound worked. That procedure is also available at the following link. Let me know what you find.

A:Realtek HD Audio Driver Randomly Stopped Working and Disappeared

First question what is displayed in the Device Manager, Sound Section? (All entries - post a screenshot).

HDMI sound and PC sound are separate as the HDMI sound is generated by a sound chip on the video board.

If the sound chip is working and not having a conflict, if the RealTek will not install the generic Windows installed HD Audio Driver will be used. If this is not installing either (after uninstalling the Realtek and rebooting) it does sound like a potential hardware problem.

Try this, go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the RealTek sound (even if it has the error code), then Left click "Uninstall" and check the box to also uninstall the drivers (if it gives you that option). Then restart the PC and watch to see if Windows detects the sound and installs the HD Audio Driver. If it does, that says the sound chip is OK. If not, either its bad or it has not been identified and you need to reinstall the Intel motherboard chipset drivers (one of the chipset functions is it identifies all the devices on the motherboard).

Hi,
I have a Dell Optiplex 780 desktop running Windows 10 successfully until this morning when the on-board audio has stopped working. Note that I am talking about the built in speaker not plug in ones. I can still get sound if I plug in headphones but I prefer not to use them and I want to know what's up.

I figure that there might have been a windows update that may have changed things but I'm no expert.

A few days ago the sound on my computer stopped working. I just woke up one day and went to play a song in itunes and it wouldn't play. I clicked on volume and checked it. Then clicked on playback devices and it said no jack information. No audio controller installed or something. I went to device manager and tried to reinstall or update drivers. The drivers were moved to unknown with a yellow exclamation point. I tried this to no avail. I tried in safe mode. I tried redownloading drivers from motherboard website ASUS. It keeps telling me Access is Denied (Code 28). A couple of times after restarting it said I needed to Reinstall driver, but when i tried it said the latest driver was already installed. Then it went back to Access denied. I don't have any idea what happened. Can someone please help me.

It may be due to "Fast Resume". Try this fix from microsoft.

Well anyway, it works GREAT when I do sound recording (Start/Programs/Accessories/Entertainment/Sound Recorder) but when I try to do it in a game, no one can hear me (when I did the voice tweak, it plays kinda staticy the thing that I said, then repeats it over and over again, getting louder each time. The other config option doesn't help either) Has anyone else experienced problems with this product, or any product and experienced the same problem..? Is it fixable, or will I have to get support from plantronics? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Today I'm suddenly having an issue with most games and some programs, basically they crash instantly, I get the error message "xxx has stopped working". I first noticed this with XBMC (Xbox Media Center), then I tried a few Steam games, I get the same error with: Batman Arkham Asylum, Batman Arkham City, Counter Strike: Global Offensive (although this gives no error just closes instantly no message or pop-up), Hard Reset.

The only thing I can think of which could be causing this is the Windows update I did today, but I didn't get any errors or anything..

Spec:
i5 4670k /w Corsair Hydro H80 Liquid Cooler
ATI Radeon HD 7950 @1020/1250
8GB DDR3 1600MHz
Gigabyte Z87-D3HP
Samsung 128GB 830
ASUS Xonar D2
Win7 64bit

Worth noting that I installed windows on Sunday, but everything was working yesterday.

Not sure what to try, any help please?

Hello Lately I've been suffering from crashes When playing games like PayDay and League of Legends The game suddenly crashes and a bunch of running programs show quot Has stopped working quot It doesn't crash into a BSOD but the programs won't start again Except for time I actually got a BSOD Dump attached I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the other crashes but it did occur during playing when say stopped "... Programs playing working" has games. PayDay When the crashes started occurring I bought a new hard drive Needed more space and installed a clean installation of Windows Programs say "... has stopped working" when playing games. Home premium bit This didn't work so I Programs say "... has stopped working" when playing games. ran MemTest passes and no errors I also tried testing my GPU's one by one also no result I tried using Verifier but the crashes don't result into a BSOD So haven't got any useful feedback on that part I've also tried the repair-install guide but when clicking upgrade it says I've already got a equal or higher version of windows installed I'm kind of clueless on what to do now Thanks in advance Ceees

Hi Ceees2.

The issue seems to be a multi-fold one. Some disc errors are reported. So test the HDD.

Try the R275 version on the RealTek site. Its the latest version and will work on your PC. When you run the Realtek installation the first thing it will do is uninstall the current version you have installed and then restart the PC. After the restart it will continue and install the R275 version. This is the version I have on all my PC's for both Win 7 64 bit and Win 8 64 bit.

Download the High Definition Audio Codec R.275 64 bit OS version.

Now, when games crash, it usually shows the whole entire screen, filling up with flickering blue squares. The sound keeps going on for about 10 more seconds, and then the sound freezes up too. When I press any button after this happens, The monitor flickers and then shows a screen that is bizarrely coloured. I am using Windows XP Professional 64 bit-edition

Hello:
The mouse started to stray and stopped working in the middle of doing something, i.e. eBay, typing word and etc. which is very annoying and first of all, I lose all of the work done due to stopping of the mouse.

However, the mouse started working as if nothing wrong, once I restarted by 'force' restart ..... pushing the button in the middle of the PC. Otherwise, the PC is all fine and working OK.

I did apply Malwarebytes to combat the issue, however the issue does not resolve.

Any help on this would be truoly appreciated.

Thanks,

A:Mouse stopped working in the middle of working, i.e. eBay, typing word, etc.

Did you try a different mouse? If you still have the same problem with a new mouse, see if there are any drivers for the mouse from it's manufacturers web site.
Also try a Clean Boot, if that works, then add one startup item at a time till the mouse acts weird again, then you know that is the problematic program.

So one day I was using a laptop wirelessly when the internet just suddenly turned off. I checked my modem and it was working fine but when I checked my router, the lights were on but not blinking. it was just a steady light. when I checked for a wireless network the name of the network I usually use didnt show up.

I tried unplugging everything and plugging everything back in again and I tried pressing the reset button on the back of the router. Can anyone help?

Thanks so much

Two new motherboards tells us you made the same simple install error in both of them.
Tell us more about power supply, memory, cable.
Did you make sure the memory was correct for both new boards, and what is the memory on the old board. Would also like to know the power supply and other hard ware.
What happens with the most basic, simple install. Does everything light up?

If you used the same hard drive with the same Windows install on the two motherboards, that is the problem. Windows has detected that you have changed the motherboard and will not operate unless you reinstall Windows on the drive on each new motherboard... One install for each motherboard.
My guess is that you will be fine if you change hard drives or do reinstalls or repair installs of the Windows on the new motherboard.
