When I connect my laptop to TV through HDMI cable, I get both video and audio from it to play on TV. And if I connect speakers to the headphones output I can't hear sound in speakers, the HDMI audio is still playing on TV. Is it possible somehow to disable the audio on HDMI so only the video will pass? Or maybe to make the sound from headphones output to play audio as well?
I have an IR RC Helicopter that is controlled by IR transmitter that plugs into the audio out jack of my mobile phone (which runs an app that produces the audio signal, that the transmitter converts).
I've recorded the audio out of the app via the line-in on my computer. I get a nice signal that I can decode into the component information used to control the helicopter.
My problem is that when I playback the signal (via the transmitter, attached to my comps headphone jack) the helicopter won't respond.
I tried re-recording the audio of my computer by looping the headphone jack out back into the line-in (not sure if this is a good idea in terms of feedback). I can then record the signal output, which is similar to the source one but fairly distorted. Does windows 7 equalize sound output or something funny, and if so can I turn this off?
I will try and make my first post as informative and direct as possible. I am having an issue with installing a NVIDIA Geforce 8400 GS video card into an older HP Pavillion 6040n
Windows 7 Professional x64 Asus P5LP-LE motherboard w/onboard sound Intel Core 2 Duo 6320 Processor, 1.86 Ghz Seagate 7200 320GB Hard Drive 4 GB RAM (PNY but I don't remeber the speed of it) Geforce 8400GS 512 MB graphics card with DVI and VGA outputs (no S-Video, NO HDMI outputs) 300W generic PSU
when I physically installed the graphics card into the PCIE slot and rebooted the computer the sound stopped working. the computer does not see any audio output devices that are installed. when I mouse over the small speaker in the bottom right corner there is a red x over the speaker, like it's muted, and it says "no audio output device is installed" When I remove the card and go back to using the integrated graphics card in the motherboard, the sound works fine. I am using the 3.5mm jack off the back of the motherboard to get to my desktop speakers.I have tried installing the latest drivers from NVIDIA, doing a clean install of the drivers (IE removing the old versions first)I did not let in install the NVIDIA HD audio driver that comes in the 260.99 driver I tried reinstalling both the Realtek R255 sound card driver and the older R235 Driver.Nothing I have tried has worked. Something interesting I have noticed is windows installs 4 generic High Definition Audio Devices. When I see them in Device Manager I delete the drivers and restart the computer, but every time I restart, there is still no sound, and windows once again installs 4 HD audio devices. Why would a graphics card render an onboard sound card inoperable? Would a clean install of windows 7 fix my problem? Did I go to cheap in selecting the 8400 GS? Could this be in IRQ conflict?
All the drivers are working and windows is detecting everything just fine, I can even look under the volume adjustments and see the sound being produced. But I am getting no output to my speakers! I've read through a lot of forums and tried both xp and vista drivers along with the recommended 7 drivers, all work but I am getting no output through my integrated speakers.
I am running a Toshiba u205-5002 with a ACPI x86 motherboard and soundmax it just not working for me. I am at a loss of what to do. I don't get any program sounds whatsoever, no startup, nothing. All device managers say the devices are working properly and it detects the speakers just fine. I am also not getting any output to my headphone jack either. I am using the 32 bit 7000 build...
I recently bought Creative A500 5.1 surround sound speakers for my PC. I then bought an internal sound card as i only had 2 speaker inputs on my pc, but then found out that my motherboard has only 1 PCI slot. So i had to buy an external sound card for the surround sound to work (this one) I connected it all up, put the wires in the correct places, but the rear speakers do not play any sound. I know they work, as I put the rear jack into the front output to test them. If I go into sound, then try to configure it to 5.1 I don't have the option to select rear speakers. (picture of what i mean) I can't go into enhancements to select fill speakers either as the tab isn't showing up in properties. And also, as I'm using an external sound card (USB), nothing shows up in Realtek HD audio manager, so I'm not able to do it from there.
I've upgraded from vista to 7 and I am getting no sound, I've searched, searched and tried alot of different things, I see alot of people on this forum with the same issues, but I've tried most of them. I've installed and unistalled all the different drivers from realtek, but no luck. I have realtek high definition sound but no hdmi output. In my device manager it says the sound driver is installed properly, but when I tried to test the sound it fails to test tone, I don't know if it has to deal with an audio codec. I have regular speaker that connect to a sound jack. At this point I am quite desperate. I've spent all night trying to figure this out.
Windows 7 32-bit won't play sound.Device ManagerSound, video and game controllersHigh Definition Audio Device ok.Double click and window says:High Definition Audio Device PropertiesGeneral: Device status says This device is working properly.Speakers are plugged in and make a crackle when plugging in to correct holes.
recently when i was trying to enable my sound card so i could make Internet videos, i managed to somehow break my sound. i have a windows 7 64bit computer that runs realtek hd audio and nvidia hd audio. i have tried reinstalling windows and that does not work, as it comes up with an error message "upgrade failed, restart and then select updates when prompted" no mater how many times i do this it does not work.
Alright, so I know this an XP issue. But what I've noticed with build 7000 and now 7068, is that when I load up my computer and boot Windows 7 the sound works fine in 7. However when I go back to XP after having been in 7 ocassionally the sound is gone. I have a volume icon in my system tray and I can adjust the levels but no sound.
The only fix I have found for this was uninstalling my audio driver in XP and rebooting my PC and having XP find and install the driver itself. But even then sometimes it doesn't work and I have to do countless reboots before I could get the sound working again.
I was having a problem with dual monitor using 7127 build. But only when I use newest NVIDIA drivers. My tv just flashes a few times, and I can see that fish a couple of times, but then it just goes to like no signal. If I use default drivers which are installed on windows install, then it works fine, but then I dont have NVIDIA control panel and some other features.
My video card is GF 8800GTS 650M 512MB DDR3 DUAL DVI TV PCIE. I would like to know if anyone else is having this problem and If it has been fixed in the newest build, so I could be arsed to do a clean install.
dual booting windows 7 home premium x64 with linux fedora 14 on dual independantly dedicated drives. i am a college student with moderate computer (windows) knowledge but am doing software development and would like to play around with some linux for a class. i have no prior experience with linux and have minimal knowledge of operation. i am currently running windows 7 and would like to keep it as my primary os. i do not wish to share media files across drives or os's, windows does that just fine as is and i dont want to get into a third drive. my current drive is a 1tb wd black caviar hdd. it is also currently 2/3rds full and the desktop is about 6 months old so i would rather not partition the drive for a dual boot. i would think that there are some other advantages for the os's operating independantly off their own drives other than if one hdd dies i should still have the other with its os still ok. i have read some topics about RAID configs with dual boot setups with dual drives like this but am not very familiar with RAID. is there a RAID config that would be beneficial in this situation? i currently do not have a RAID card. my tower internals are not very accessible and i dont like the idea of disconnecting drives depending on which os i want to operate.
I am building a new computer and I want to go with a dual screen setup. I was wondering if I should go with a GTX 670 2GB GPU or two Sapphire Radeon 7870s. If not specifically these cards, let me know what you think. Is it better to have a single GPU with dual DVI output or two slightly cheaper GPUs using crossfire?
As currently configured, XP is on drive C:, Win 7 was added to drive E:, and the system is currently run as a dual boot. Attempting to boot without the XP drive present will yield a "NTLDR is missing" error very early in the boot process.
I have already tried the following:
(1) I moved the hidden Windows Boot Manager files (bootmgr as well as the associated Boot folder) from the XP drive root to the Win 7 drive root.
(2) After physically removing the XP drive, I rebooted to the Win 7 installation DVD, and used the "Repair Your Computer" option to pull up the "Recovery Tools". Then, using the command prompt utility, ...
(3) I attempted to write a new boot sector to the Windows 7 disk using the command: Bootrec /fixboot, - that yields an error though. The Bootrec /fixmbr claimed success, but ultimately did not make Win 7 drive bootable.
I had to reconnect drive C: just to boot into Win 7 again to write this. I do have files backed up, but to format and reinstall files would take many hours beyond just the time to transfer 400 GB of data, since I have dozens of purchased applications that need to be freshly reinstalled and validated as well. Basically I want my E: drive now to be my boot drive while the C: drive is reformatted and used for general storage.
Any idea how to make my Win 7 drive bootable? Do I need a partition program that is more adept at creating a viable boot sector, or is that even the problem?
I bought my VGX-XL301 in August 2007 and it cam installed with Vista home addition and upgraded to Windows 7 Professional in April 2010. I have the computer linked to my Samsung HDTV via an HDMI connection.
Everything worked fine up until recently.
I am working on the computer and then switch HD inputs to watch TV. After a time the compuiter goes into sleep mode. The next time I want to use the computer, I press a key to bring it out of sleep mode. I switch it from the TV HD input to the PC HD input but no picture comes up.
I have to force a shut down by holding in the power button and then turn on. The PC then goes through the boot up and the PC picture appears, however sometimes it takes 2 or 3 forced shutdowns to make it work.
I have upgraded the driver on the graphics card as I thought that might be the problem.
Have a new camcorder, the videos from which I wish to record on a DVD for posterity and sharing.Apparently there are several modes that my PC asks about before making the DVD.I read, somewhere, that for the "best" pix quality, you should tell it to make a "Data Disk," and not one of the picture options.
I've read dozens of topics relating to these questions yet have found no answers. I'm looking for a software solution NOT hardware.
1. How can I record the Windows 7 Text 2 Speech voice?
2. How can I playback the recording through a program(WMP, MPC, etc) and have it go though the mic instead of speakers? Pretty much I want the text to speech to act as my voice for a mic. I don't care if there is no speaker output while this is happening.
Windows has a feature to allow you to output your computer to your HDTV right? (Via HDMI). But I'm building my new PC in a few months and was wondering if I was to connect my PC to my HDTV via HDMI, would it output to the TV during things like the BIOS and Windows setup? Or only if I tell ti to via Windows?
Since installing it, I had a problem with my sound, which was as the title states, no audio output device. I've been through several drivers, none of which worked, and I've also tried sound max, which has in fact worked, however I can't stand the little sound bar when you up or down the volume, and it's fairly unresponsive when I use the buttons on my laptop. So in all fairness, I just want the actual driver designed to work with this laptop.I do have a version of Windows 7 Home Premium, not too sure if it'd make much difference, however I'd rather not go through another OS install as I've got most of my stuff already set up on this now!I am good with computers so don't be afraid to get technical, but I just need another angle on this because it's most likely just something I'm overlooking.
i've twice installed latest drivers GeForce 285.62 Driver , i've been into nvidia control panel and then setup multiple monitors & it only detects my other vga monitor not the hdmi one, i'm using a brand new hdmi cable & can confirm i've connected it to the correct hdmi connector on my monitor, it has 2 hdmi ports and i've tried both, when i go into device manager & display adapters there is only 1 adapter that says nvidia geforce gt 545, should there be another 1 for the hdmi? i'm out of options, i even work in i.t as a breakfix engineer coming across similar issues like this but i cannot deal with this & really need some help so i'm really hoping someone will help me out here i'm wondering if its anything to do with my other hardware such as the xeon cpu? (a longshot but i've only just built this pc & never built a xeon system before & would normally go for core i5 or core i7)
I missed some cmd.exe output today and I would really have liked to know what that was. I know it wasn't malware, but that's not the point Is there a way to make cmd.exe copy all it's output to a text file automatically or something similar that I could use to check back on what my system did there?I already checked google, it said there's "no way". Only with powershell, but that's not exactly what I want because I don't really do a lot of that stuff, but I'd come back to it, if nobody knows anything else.
Im running 7 on my laptop, and im trying to get it to output only to my external monitor when the lid is closed. I can get it to extend my desktop, but when i close the lid, it turns off the external monitor. I have set Windows 7 to do nothing when lid is closed. Is there anyone else with this problem?
I have an Dell Inspiron 1525, with Intel x3100 integrated graphics, if that helps.
