I am unable to connect my new wireless lappy to my local (Talk Talk broadband) connection I use for my desktop. Is Vista wireless compatible with Talk Talk broadband? Doesn't seem to be aware of that connection... Also where do I obtain key 'security key or passphrase'

I'm trying to be as brief as I can...I just built myself a new Vista Ultimate with SP1 system to take the place of my previous entertainment system, Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. In my home network, the Entertainment System box is my gateway to the internet, via a dial-up connection. I'm in an area where I can't get DSL or cable. I've successfully used ICS on 3 different Windows builds over the years, from Win98 to WinME to WinXP, all setup on the WAN port of routers. This effectively isolates the Windows box running ICS from the other two computers I run on the LAN. My WAN IP range is thus controlled by the DHCP service built into ICS, and I'm free to use anothe IP range on my LAN instead of 192.168.0.x that ICS assigns. There is only this system with it's dial-up connection on the WAN side; the system is essentially behaving like a slow DSL modem.
Here's the problem: my brand new Vista Ultimate entertainment system will not talk reliably to any of the 3 routers I've tried, on EITHER LAN OR WAN! 2 of the 3 routers I have used with my previous XP-based entertainment system, and they behave just fine. What is it about ICS in Vista that is preventing me from even accessing the setup for my routers? I've tried turning off Windows firewall, disabling IPv6 and Network Discovery, etc. until I'm blue in the face, but nothiing helps. Even if I connect Vista to the LAN side and set proper static IP to reach router configuration, I'm denied! I bought a new Belkin wireless N router today, thinking it HAS to be a compatibility issue, but even this "Vista ready" router will NOT let me even configure it using the Vista OS. I sure hope someone can give me some answers that help me understand. I hate to think I might have to put my XP Media Center box back in the dial-up sharing position just to get my internet connection back to my other computers again....
my friend and I have set up ventrilo and we have a server, everything is fully functioning, except for one thing. He can talk when we are playing Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo: Custom Edition, and I can hear him, but he can't hear me when I'm talking. I am using a Saitek GH30 headset. my push to talk key is bound to F12, if that matters.
This is only a minor irritation as WFS still works perfectly well. I wonder why my fax card's built-in speaker no longer emits any sound when I'm sending a fax - I used to be able to hear it dialling. I've tried Googling the issue and apart from a few people saying that they vaguely remember the issue and seeing a fix for it which they've long forgotten, I still haven't actually found a fix. The card is obviously still working as I can send and receive faxes and sounds are all on as per the options/settings,although I doubt that Windows Sounds settings have anything to bear on a card's built-in speaker. It's a Hiro 56K V.92 PCI Modem which shows in Vista as an Agere Soft Modem. I get the same problem in both XP and Vista by the way.The speaker worked for a while and then just stopped.
Many of you may have been as frustrated as myself by Micrsoft bowing to the RIAA and pressuring the soundcard manufacturers to remove the "What You Hear" feature from their drivers. This supposedly prevents you from recording web radio and other sound card audio.
The short term workaround has been to loop the line out audio back around into the line in jack. While this works, it's a kludge.
The good news is that Version 7 of Total Recorder (just released) now comes with a true kernal mode driver that restores the capability to do direct recordings.
I noticed every time I boot up I hear my computer fan speed up (as if the computer were working extra hard). When I check Task Mgr I notice SVCHOST running 30% + cpu at times. I checked the service running and it's the plug & play service.
Im not sure if I should put this under update probelms or what, but Im highly confused. I downloaded the Malicious Software Removal Tool, thru Windows Update. (Not a pop up online) After it was done with the update, it restarted my computer, and when it was done, I discovered that it had UN INTSALLED the speakers. The new software hadnt even run yet, so I doubt it had anything to do with that. When I click on the volume icon on my task bar, it says that there is "No Audio Output Device Installed"
so I've been trying to trouble shoot this for awhile...I've uninstalled and installed drivers, rolled back drivers....For some reason I am not getting any sound from the rear jacks (green to monitor) or from the headphone jack. System is a HPa6303w running vista home, using realtek HD Audio. My 'digital output' is set as my default playback, but when I used an RCA cord to 3.5m plug I still have no sound. I can't configure the speakers cause the system is not seeing them...is there any way to 'activate' the analog playback?
I recently switched from XP x64 to Vista x64, and my speakers (nor headset and mic) no longer work correctly on this computer. I've tried uninstalling, reinstalling,updating, and changing all the settings multiple times, but I couldn't get them to work correctly. The only time I can get my speakers (and headset) to make any sound at all is by plugging the speakers into the "Center/Subwoofer Speaker Out" plug. However, they play only as the center(left) and subwoofer(right) then. (This is while the Speaker Configuration is set to "5.1 Speaker", and I only have 2 speakers and 1 subwoofer.)I can't seem to get any sound out of the "Front Speaker Out" (green plug).I'm using 2 left/right speakers that connect into a subwoofer, which uses only 1 plug into the computer.I was able to get both speakers and headset to work at the same time when using XP x64 and Windows7, but nothing works in Vista. (I cannot recall if I was using the "Front Speaker Out" plug when they were working, but I have tried all other plugs in Vista.
I just bought my new Creative T7900 speakers which is 7.1. I have DP35DP Media series board with a built-in 7.1 sound card that has a driver from SigmaTel (default). The problem is I can't use my 7.1 speakers. The only speakers working are the two front speakers and the subwoofer when I play Windows Media Player 11 and Windows Media Classic Player, but when I ran a test on the config settings of SigmaTel, this time 5.1 speakers worked (excluding the side pair speakers). That I discovered, the audio cable that was included in the T7900 package is for 5.1 speakers only. One end of the cable has 3 pins and the other end has 4 pins which is standard for 7.1 speakers (Black for rear speakers; Lime-green for front speakers; Grey for side speakers; Orange for center speaker/subwoofer). But when I checked the quick installation manual, the cable included with the package is correct (3-pins : 4-pins). I only want simple thing to happen. I want my T7900 work on my PC that has built-in 7.1 sound card.
I do a re-install of vista OS. It's been like this everytime I do a format and re-install Vista. I managed to get sound through the speakers again by doing many removal of the different drivers/codecs but now I just cannot get it to sound through the speakers. I get sound all the time through the headphones jack but it is a hazzle to get them through the speakers. Why is this?
I have a Dell XPS 435MT and am trying to find some speakers for it. I haven't had any luck on Dell's website other than some cheap $20 jobbies. I don't need 4-7 speakers with sub woofer, etc as I have all that with my older XP system but, I'd like to find some decent ones for the newer system with Vista Home Premium. Can someone steer me in the right direction for speakers for this system? They don't necessarily have to be Dell.
I bought a new lap top 3 months ago running VISTA home premium and everything has been great but suddenly there is no sounds from my lap top. I have realtek and device manager says all is working and everything in sound (speakers etc) is set up ok, but when I hit test button there is no sound.
In previous OS I've pluged in my mic and go 'test test' and I would hear myself, in real time, through the speakers. Vista does not do this apparetnly To make matters worse, the mic will not feed through the stereo mix (because it wont come through the speakers?). I definetly have all this enabled, all hidden things revealed. I've rolled back teh drivers for the sound card, updated them, updated them again, shut down, restarted, tried a million different settings and STILL no mic for stereo mix or speakers. I can see the green bars going when I speak, and it works in programs like skype.
But this stereo mix is a big problem. I similcast an internet radio and TV show. In order to broadcast the audio from the music videos I play on the TV show over the Shoutcast radio server, I need stereo mix. However, I also need full use of my mic because a tv and radio show without a mic is pretty boring. Has ANYONE found a solution to this problem or should I just downgrade to XP, which runs my audio settings without hassle. I have Vista home premium 32bit on a toshiba laptop with a realtek high def audio soundcard. I am trying to use front jack mic but there is also a built in mic.
I am currently using XP and I can't get my speakers to work. They are plugged in, have power, but the computer can't detect them. I don't have the install discs for either my sound card or speakers. What can I do besides get new speakers or a new sound card?
I recently bought usb powered speakers (Divoom Morro 220) for my laptop. My laptob is Vista home basic based (with update 1). My problem is that no speaker, (usb powered or other types of power speakers), wants to work. No sound comes through.
Everything is working fine except for the sound which, even though I have put it to maximum is practically inaudible. Is it possible that she needs new speakers? the ones she has look very elderly! I have checked that they are plugged in ok and enabled.
Im trying to record audio but only record what I hear & not record from my mic. Problem is my mic is my only option. I updated my drivers which are Conexant High Def Smart Audio221 & also NVIDIA High Def Audio. But after I did that I only a 1 single option to choose from when I look under recording devices. And it is showing disabled devices as well. Any idea's on what im doing wrong and/or what I need? Basically I want to record what only comes out of my speakers & not pic up any backround noise from my mic.
I have Logitech X-530 speakers, a 5.1 setup. Yesterday I wanted to use my headset to play a game, so I had to change my settings to stereo to get the sound out of both the left and right headphones. When I had finished, I changed it back to 5.1 through the control panel, but now the sound is only playing out of the left and right speakers. All speakers are functional, since when I test it through the control panel the 'bing' sound plays through all one-by-one. The speakers worked fully in 5.1 before I changed the settings. Windows Vista 32bit SP2.
When i plug my headphones in i hear static, you can not notice it once the music is playing, but it gets really annoying really fast. I dont know what to do. I have my speakers hooked up to a Turtle Beach Montego DDL. I couldnt find any X64 bit drivers for this card, so i figured there had to be other drivers that had the same chipset......I was right. So i have different drivers for the card.
i have a common problem of my 5.1 logitech speakers not working on vista, like most ppl, wen i test them on realtek hd, they all seem to work fine, but wen i go to play music , movies ect.. they seem not to work at all, i can onli get 2.1 spekers working not the the full 5.1, ive done everything, filling in speaker fill ect..and have also been on a million forums to find a soultion.. but there is too much jargon that i dont undertsand.
I like to use speakers for listening to music/radio and I like to use headphones when playing games (TF2, Counterstrike, etc). It would be really nice if I could swap between the two easily, but I can't seem to sort this out. Before I moved to Vista I could get a signal to both my speakers and headphones at the same time. However, when I upgraded to Vista x64 I also upgraded my motherboard (to a GA-P35C-DS3R) and it now provides Realtek HD audio. However it seems my case only supports AC97.
What I would like is either:
1. A physical switch to switch between them (preferred) 2. Both playing audio at the same time
I want to buy some Creative Gigaworks T40s to replace my old speakers. Also my old headphones have recently broken so I need to buy new ones. I am looking at some decent gaming headphones - either Medusa 5.1 ProGamer or maybe Sennheiser PC161. (Any better suggestions?). However, the switching thing is the real problem. Considering I am shelling out for new headphones and speakers I don't want to spent a huge amount beyond this - maybe another £50.
The other day my speakers (Logitech X-540) stopped working all together. They pop when I shut down and reboot, but in the speaker properties they are listed as unplugged. The Realtek HD control panel gives me an error saying that I'm using Vista drivers and to download the proper ones. I've downloaded the current drivers from Realtek (r2.02) and from Gigabyte and neither work. Is my next step getting a new soundcard for further troubleshooting or is there something I'm overlooking? And yes, I have checked to see that the speakers are actually connected to the PC
I accidentally disabled my speakers and headphones in Vista Home Premium. I tried to enable them, they aren't even listed in sound devices. I'm on a HP G60 laptop. I went to control panel, clicked on sounds. Then i got a window with 3 tabs but no speakers or headphones anywhere. The volume icon says there's no sound device installed. I'm about to freak out!
My mother board is an abit IP35 Pro. And for speakers I have Creative Inspire P7800. Coming out of the sub are all the outputs for center, sub, left & right (front, side and rear). The output cords that came with the speakers don't fully match the input for the onboard sound card. I really don't want to spend $70+ on a sound card. Seems the onboad sound is rather descent. Sound I spend the $20-30 to get the cords that are missing. Seems that cords supplied with the speakers have 4 leads coming out of the sub and then they combine something into 3 leads going into the sound card. Now when I go to mess around with the sound within windows I can't get anything to be produced out of the side speakers.
I'm running Vista Ultimate and I recently dicarded my dell speakers that came with my xps 400 b/c only the back ones worked and those cables were too long to use efficently (I don't need help on how to arrange my speakers, thats OK). The real problem is that my Sony MDR-E828 headphones won't work with the computer/the computer dosn't recognize them (so essentially I have no sound, other than the beeps that come out of the PC itself). Before I uninstalled the other speakers (after I had disconected them), the headphones only worked for the sound config (wher the CPU makes sound come out of the different speakers to identify them). Now, I can't get to any mixer or any thing else (sound test, ect.) b/c no speakers are installed, and when I plug the headphones in, all I get is static. I went to the Sony Tech support and there are no downloads for the headphones. I'm completely lost and soundless.
some stage over the last week the sound of my PC has been set very low and I cannot find a way to increase it again. I have disconnected the speakers and connected tem to my Ipod and they work a treat. Volume in System tray is on full, so is it in the "Spealers/ Headphone Properties". The vertical bar on the right shows that the System recognises the volume, i.e. the equaliser keps jumping! I can hear something when I turn up the volume on my speakers but the music is only slightly louder than the white noise! The problem occurs with mp3s, films, CDs and DVDs. Does anybody knwo what the problem could be and how to solve it?
I lost sound to my pc a while back. Finally had time to sort it out. It was showing realteck speakers not plugged in - they are within the pc, so I tried unplugging things and rebooting to no effect. I then tried disabling and restarting, only problem is I can't work out how to enable them. The files are there, but when I go into control panel sound and manage audio devices it says there aren't any.
I have no sound coming from my speakers. I don't know of any specific trigger. A friend ejected my iPod and walked off with it, but that's the only action I can think of done on the computer for a while. Looking in the IDT Audio panel it says the following:
With no headphones in - it shows that I have a pair plugged in my middle jack. With headphones on the left (mic) jack - it shows a mic plugged in and nothing else With headphones in the middle - it shows both headphone jacks as filled (the one on the right shows up as filled too) With headphones on the right - it shows both headphone jacks as filled (the one on the right shows up as filled too)........
So yea, a friend of mine got me an Xbox 360 for my birthday, however I have no speakers and my monitor does not play audio (so any audio through HDMI is not an option). So, as a result, I bought a optical audio cable for the Digital Input (S/PDIF input), and then played it back through the speakers... however this was on Windows 7 RC1, since formatting back to Vista Ultimate 64bit (Was testing it to see if it fixed some problems), I do not have an option to play the Digital Input through the Speakers anymore (There used to be a volume control for it on the Speakers properties inside of the Vista sound settings, but it's gone now).
I am using this motherboard: ( Universal abit > Motherboard, Digital Speakers, iDome, AirPace, Multimedia ) with the drivers provided by them (It's onboard and uses the Realtek HD audio drivers, thats all I remember since I built it). Anyway, so far the only way I have been able to hear the Digital Input is to play the device through VLC using "Open Capture Device", which has a lag delay (Which is enough to throw sounds off by almost a second or so, which is fairly annoying in a multiplayer game).............
In the sound pop up from the control panel I was trying to change the default speaker, but accidentally disabled it. Now the speaker has disappered from the playback devices tab and I cannot get any sound out of my speakers. How do I enable my speakers again? Its a laptop, so I think it's the internal speakers I've disabled
I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ11S, and every time i remove my headphones all sound stops working unless i restart the programme, for instance i can be listening to something off itunes, unplug my headphones and the music pauses and won't play again unless i close and reopen it. This also happens with firefox, and i presume other applications, though i have yet to try this. This is a recent development, everything worked fine until a few days ago when i deleted some old programmes i dont use, games and suchlike. I'm pretty much certain i didn't delete anything vital, though i guess its a possibility.
