Bose Companion 5 USB 5.1 Speakers Issue

I got a set of Bose Companion 5 5.1 (2 speakers, using their special technowhatever to sound like 5.1). These use a USB 2.0 cable connected to a subwoofer to work. Now, I had Vista, which this speakers worked on fine. Switched to Windows 7, because I hated Vista's slow Windows Explorer loading, and the speakers don't work. After being plugged in, they are "Unknown Device"s.

Webcam Companion 3 Light Comes On But No Picture
I own a sony vaio vpcf111fd running windows 7 64 bit home. A couple months ago, my webcam just stopped working. I've tried opening just the application, I've tried using it through msn, skype and FB chat, but it always has the same issue. The little green light comes on, but the screen is all black.

USB Speakers Not Working
Upgraded to 7 two days ago and cannot get anything out of them. Diagnostics tells me they are working and all drivers are up to date. I have tried designating them as default device and no sound comes out of the computer at all.

When I designate the internal speakers as default and then plug in the usb speakers, the internal speakers continue to work but nothing comes out of the usb speakers. Does anyone know if these are just incompatible with 7 or am I doing something wrong..

Using 2 Sets Of Identical Usb Speakers At The Same Time?
I am trying to use 2 sets of the insignia NS-NBBAR USB sound bar speakers on my laptop simultaneously. Both Speakers are recognized independently and I can choose one or the other to run, but I can find no way to link them both. Is there any way to set these up to run this way?

Boston 735 USB Speakers With Realtek AC97
Step 1 - locate and save file 7507807.exe or search for the "BA735 USB" driver which contains all the Boston Human Interface Device drivers. Run the file and save the files somewhere useful and easy to find on your PC.

Step 2 - go to Device & Printers; right mouse click your PC's icon and choose Device Installation settings. Choose No and Never .... I like to call this turn off the MS knows best switch. Save changes etc.

Step 3 - Install the BA735 USB speakers to the USB port you intend to leave it on.

Step 4 - Windows 7 should now try to load the driver. Because I didn't do in this order not sure of how this works, but make sure Windows 7 goes to the %7507807CABSWIN2KINF folder and you should see the BAUSBHID.inf driver file. Install this one and none other. If all works the HID entry in Device Manager WILL say "Boston Human Interface Device". You may hahve to reboot after this.

Step 4B (how I got it to work) was to Select the first "USB input Device" from the Device manager HID section. Then choose which driver to install as in the steps above. It must be from the WIN2KINF folder.

Step 5 - In the "Sound" option in control panel make sure the Boston USB AUdio Device is set as the Default Device. Have something playing to test it out, I still had speaker connected directly to the sound card and this just swapped the sound from them to the Boston ones. Voila!

A similar process to this will get these same speaker working in XP.

Intex USB Audio Speakers Don't Work
I've got this problem with my intex USB Audio Speakers where whenever I plug them in my Windows 7 powered laptop, they just don't work. The default audio device in Control Panel/Sounds changes automatically from my onboard High Definition Audio Device to USB Audio Device (which I think it's normal). Also, there is no problem shown in Device Manager and when I hover my mouse on the Sound icon near the clock (system tray or notification area) it shows that the USB Audio Device are the default. I contacted Intex and they first told me that it might be a laptop problem, but then I installed Windows XP - the sound works great. I installed Ubuntu - the speakers are working also. It seems like it's a problem in Windows 7. I sent them another message telling them this, but they have never contacted me again.

USB Headset Detected As Speakers - Very Loud At Even 1 Percent Volume
I bought a Crystal USB headset yesterday, it came with no directions, no disc, no drivers, there's not even a website listed. When I plugged it in Win 7 detected it as USB speakers. Even at 1% volume it is LOUD, I had to wear my earphones on my cheeks! I tried playing with the volume mixer, but even setting other applications at 1 didn't work. Those programs (games, etc) that had additional volume control inside the application were able to turn the volume down enough to use, but any additional sounds (system sounds, etc). Is there an additional USB driver I haven't found for Windows 7? or is there a way to force the OS to recognize the USB as a headset instead of speakers?

External Speakers Work, Laptop Speakers Do Not
I have a Dell XPS M1330 laptop and have recently upgraded to windows 7 professional (32bit) from windows vista. Everything seems to be running smoothly except I can get no sound from the internal laptop speakers. When I plug in external speakers in via the jacks on the front, sound comes through fine, but as soon as I unplug them there is nothing. Headphones also work like this too. Under sounds in device manager, it simply says 'High Definition Audio Device', and I'm not sure if I should be downloading some other drivers?

Getting A USB Microphone Into The "Levels" Tab Of Speakers?
I have a USB Microphone, a Samson C01U. I also have a regular microphone, which I plug into the audio jack. The microphone that's plugged into the audio jack shows up correctly in the levels tab of my speaker's properties. I can mute/unmute it, and adjust the volume that I hear it in my speakers. My USB Microphone however, does not. Is there anyway I could get it to work that way and hear it in my speakers? Because I know that if I just use "listen to this device", there will be severe audio delay between when I speak and when I hear it.

5.1 Speakers But Test Signal Only On 2 Speakers
I have a Creative SB X-Fi Xtreme PCI-Ex, and Logitech Z-5500 5.1 THX speakers. All speakers work; all software, drivers and codecs are up-to-date. Recently I noticed that in the Speaker Setup screen, the test button only results in sound from the left and right front speakers.

I checked because after a VLC update, mkv files no longer played correctly in the 5.1 mode. Music played, but the voices were muted (while no speakers are muted, and all are connected). I have to select "2 front, 2 rear" Audio Device in order to hear the speech as well.

I have the same problem when playing movies in PowerDVD, where I have to select the 2-speakers setting in order to hear all the sound.


- Previously the test button did sound all 5 speakers

- The test button on the Logitech remote still sounds all 5 speakers

I have Windows 7 Professional, 32 bit.

No Sound From Speakers
i have an msi 785gtm-e45 mother board. i have no sound coming from the speakers. tried new speakers and still no sound. if i click on the speaker icon on the bottom right it shows the speaker graph going up and down as sound is being produced. i tried the head phones and nothing coming from them either. i tried playing a cd and nothing from there either. i first noticed it when i was trying to play something from Internet and thought it might just be the site but then i tried off line as well. i am running windows 7 home premium. i have checked all the settings i can think of but probably have missed something somewhere.

No Audio Through Internal Speakers
I have a Toshiba Satellite L505-S6946 running on Windows 7. None of the system volumes are on mute, the speakers properties lie and say it's working properly, I've already reinstalled device driver software, and restored Windows to an earlier date...though, no dice. I'm not totally sure what my other options are..

No Speakers Or Headphones Are Plugged In?
I tried searching for the solution to this problem but even after installing the realtek drivers, i still get that issue of no speakers or headphones.Below is information about the onboad sound.


I had not used my desktop for one week due to some problem of too much dust accumlating in the machine. Due to this the system would not power up. After the dust was removed, system powers up but i now get this problem with sound. Before this everything was fine. The speakers work fine on the laptop.I installed the drivers from the motherboard driver disc. I am using a gigabyte board (GA-G31M-ES2L).I have installed the drivers directly from the gigabyte website for my motherboard as well as from the realtek website.Also updated bios online from gigabyte server. But none of these methods causes sound to be restored.Theres no exclamation mark by the audio drivers in Device Manager. I have removed the audio drivers and after a restart, i still get the "no speakers or headphones are plugged in" error on the speaker icon.In device manager after restarting the system, i get the "high definition audio" device listed under "Sound, video and game controllers".Now i am wondering there is something wrong with the motherboard.
