My M/B sound is not working and hence I have an basic Crystal Sound Fusion audio card. Windows XP and Ubuntu is working with this Sound Card. But Windows 7 has problem with it. I tried to ON the option " Plug and Play OS " in BIOS. But device manager does not worked. Then I disabled onboard Audio so that it will be sloved but it replies same only. Device Manager of Win 7 says that
I have a USB Speaker that auto-installs a audio driver into windows 7 when plugged in. Problem is I'm not sure the driver is running well with Windows 7 because there are random hissing sounds coming out. Once it comes out, it won't stop until I remove my usb and plug it back again.
So I want to try compatibility mode with XP and Vista, but I am unsure how to do this.
PI have to use onboard sound card to have audio through HDMI output from video card. The external sound card installed is Xonar DG and it comes with SPDIF output header to be interfaced with video card. But I do not see no such header on the video card. I wonder what video card has such an interface header.
as stated in the subject, I am unable to hear any sound from my speakers since upgrading to the windows 7 64 bit. I followed the other post that I found on this but I still cannot hear any sound.I have a dell inspiron 531. The hardware ids from the device manager areHDAUDIOFUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0888&SUBSYS_1028020E&REV_1000 HDAUDIOFUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0888&SUBSYS_1028020EI have installed the realtek drivers and they as working but I still get nothing but a slight hiss from my speakers. I have tried them on my laptop and they work fine.Does anybody know what might be causing this? I am half tempted to get a new sound card but I am reluctant as it says my existing one is working (it just seems to have forgotten to tell the speakers!) If anybody knows a fix for this I really would be eternally grateful
I've solved my gaming graphics issues, namely by choosing the parts I wanted rather than buying yet another "Media-Center"-style all-in-one unit that did everything, but not very well, I'm now in need of a solution to my present awful headphone sound quality. I have a generic Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio card that is not very good, sound-wise, and, because it doesn't even include an optical out plug, goes unused. I purchased a refurbished Turtle Beach headset w/DSS decoder, and, while it works as advertised, the headphones are terrible for music. I've replaced the TB Headset with a much better-sounding Pyle set, and will buy some "real" headphones as soon as I've determined that the source itself is sending out a good-sounding signal.I've seen pro and con arguments about sound cards, like the Xonar series that have headphone amplification included. My issue with that is I am more concerned with the graphics for games, and I've built this system with SLI (another gtx580) in mind, and I do not see enough room under or in between the dual GPUs for proper installation of such huge sound cards, though I'm glad to have my ignorance in this area demonstrated. The anti-Sound card group seems to be gravitating towards a separate headphone amplifier, and I"ve seen them from the $20 dollar model included free with another headset I purchased, to the $1800 tube amps. I think I would like to either go this route, or purchase a home stereo receiver that can output the PC sound, thus having both satisfactory amplification for low-volume music listening( or ear-bleeding levels, if desired) and the ability to power speakers elsewhere. I guess what I'm asking is for some entry-level priced PC headphone amplifiers to start off with. I see countless rating comments for the FiiO series, and while the prices are certainly attractive, the fact that they're so low-priced also makes me leery of their actual amplification abilities while staying neutral in tone.
I just bought a new pc from Dell. I opted out of buying the SB sound card they had as an option and now I am sorta regretting that. I loaded RC 7100 as soon as I got the machine and after going through this forum I am sorta left with the impression that SB cards don't work with Win 7. Is that really the case?
I was looking at an "Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Sound Card" but if it will just cause me grief it's not worth it. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what I can get and not pull my hair out trying to get it to work? The main game I play sounds sorta mediocre with the on-board sound.
normally i only have 1 sound card/sound device in sound settings when i use hdmi with my tv, i have 2 sound devices in there, and i can choose 1 one of them as default, and all applications i run will play sound on that default device, so i choose hdmi (my tv) as default, open chrome for my mom watch movies, sound play on my tv (hdmi), that's what i want and i open firefox, go to Internet, sound also play on my tv (hdmi), that's not what i want, i want it (firefox) to play sound on my pc, so my mom can watch movies on tv, and i can watch Internet on pc
is there a way to do this? a way to set per-application sound card/sound device setting? i know some programs like windows media player or vlc can let you choose sound card, but firefox, chrome do not. i tried indievolume and it did not work, even uninstalled, reinstalled but did not work, or is there any browser that let me choose sound card setting (like wmp and vlc, but these 2 are not browser)
and does anyone know if mac or windows 8 has this feature as built-in? if windows 8 does then i might upgrade
I fly MS FSX and I want to be able to chat to ATC with my headphones and then hear the engine noises coming out of my speakers and sub-woofer.
I have a sound-card and my motherboard has on-board sound. I can't find the bios setting to turn it on and I can't see any hint of it anywhere on the computer. Can someone help me get the on board sound going? My computer is homebuilt, I recently installed Windows 7 pro 64bit.
i just installed win 7 ultimate 32-bit and have no more sound. i fried my onboard sound so i used an old soundcard(this was before the install) and forgot where the driver is. i found out it is an OEM compaq soundcard made by creative called audio pci 5200(?).
with some research i tried to install drivers but its incompatible with win 7. i also tried the windows update and it found Creative AudioPCI (ES1371,ES1373) (WDM), but could not install it. checking the properties it said it does have enough free resources and i need to disable another device. (?)
edit:[ This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)
If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.]
it shows the name up there (Creative...) under sound, video and game controllers in the Device Manager.
Well, I recently updated my Windows 7 x64 Ultimate to SP1 (as of about half an hour ago), and I've had one noticeable problem: my sound doesn't work.
This means that unfortunately, I cannot hear the sound of a Ferrari 458 Italia starting up as I log in, and even more so I cannot blast Rush louder than a sonic boom.
Well, here's the deal: Windows 7 reports to me that there are no input or output sound devices installed. So, I go into device manager. Device manager tells me that "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The drivers may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)" for the audio devices (HDMI) on my ATI Radeon HD 5700s AND my onboard Realtek ALC889, along with "Microsoft Trusted Audio Drivers". I uninstalled the driver with device manager and restarted. They showed up again, with code 39. I tried updating the drivers with windows update. Nothing. I installed drivers from the Gigabyte website. Nothing. Still that code 39 shows up. I even tried a "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" registry key fix. That didn't work either.
I tried uninstalling SP1 and trying the aforementioned fixes, and nothing. Same issue. Reinstalled SP1, and same issue still! Somewhere along the line, "Microsoft Trusted Audio Drivers" stopped showing up in computer management.
I would do a system restore, BUT the most recent backup was in december 2010, since restore points have been disabled for some strange reason. Out of desperation (not being able to hear "The Fifth Order of Angels" ), I tried a system restore, but that failed since I don't have enough space on my boot disk (an 80 gig ssd).
Even more intriguingly, my creative fatal1ty USB headset (older one) works fine. I get sound in and out through that guy. It's just the 5770s and the ALC889.
I decided I'm going to wait this out. If I don't see a hotfix in the next month, that's it. I'm reimaging or reinstalling.
Otherwise, do you have any input with regard to this matter? I'm going to test the sound card from a live cd and see if that does anything, but I'm more than confident the ALC889 is in good working order.
This is my first time solving problem without enough information.The client is using Crystal Report (version unknown) at Windows XP and everything was fine. Now they upgraded their OS to WIndow 7 64-Bits, and the crystal report does not work anymore.An error has occurred while attempting to load the Crystal Reports runtimg.
Out of those 3 cards I only use the GTX260 and the 9400GT. I had to 'retire' the Fx5500 because the latest WHQL (certified) drivers only provide support as far down as the "6 series" Nvidia cards. Unfortunately the Fx5500 is a "5 series" and falls below that line. I have already tried to use the GTX260 and Fx5500 in previous versions of Windows (XP and Vista), but there is no way to download and install two separate drivers for two of the same make of video card - you'll get nothing but errors.
There is the option of going to a place like guru3d.com and downloading a custom supported driver that covers both the GTX260 and Fx5500, but the drivers are not certified and lack support. Therefore, I purchased and now use the 9400GT which is covered under the drivers for the GTX260 and eliminates the need for messing around with custom drivers. Also, the 9400GT has a better graphics processor and more memory than the Fx5500, so it was time to upgrade anyway.
I'm having a problem with my notebook Acer Aspire 6920 since i installed my Windows 7. The camera driver doesn't work....( Acer Crystal Eye Driver Camera) Does anybody had this problem? How did you guys solve this? I tried already run as ADM.. but didn't work. I'm running a 64 bit OS.
This is probably just a stop gap but I was finally able to get my old Creative Audigy 2 card to work with 5.1 surround by using Audigy 4 drivers for Windows 7. I haven't been able to adjust bass and treble yet but I've been too busy just enjoying the music to get around to looking for ways to make that happen. Music sounds better than it ever did in XP or Vista!
It may not be a complete fix but at least it'll get you some sound until they come up with driver for those of us with older sound cards. Be patient as it takes a while for the complete install!
I have a samsung x60 Plus which as of yet has no windows 7 specific drivers but it does have Vista.
The laptop has a ricoh card reader (xd, sd smc) this does work as I have rebooted into XP and it reads and writes fine.
In windows 7 I either end up with the standard SDA driver that Windows 7 installs which reports as working correctly but nothing happens when you enter a memory card OR I get error code 10 cannot start, depending on which set of the various vista and windows 7 drivers I have tried.
So far I have tried;
Generic Ricoh windows 7 card reader drivers
Samsung x60 Vista card drivers and vista chipset drivers
Windows standard drivers
Anyone have any ideas..? Does seem to be a fairly common problem but I have tried quite a few solutions with no luck.
My ATI HD3870 video card wont work...Upon downloading the windows 7 ATI CCC it informs me that there has been an error installing the driver...only for it to actually show up in the device manager as working, but then when I try to restart to set my MOBO to use it, I get a BSOD from atikmdag.sys
error code 0x00000116
my Realtek AC'97 on-board audio card was working until reboot just like in another thread on this forum. At this point, however, isn't even showing up on the unknown devices list, nor ANYWHERE else on the Device Manager...
Also there's an unrecognized and unsupported piece of hardware on my mobo (ACPIAWY0001.....WTF is this thing!?) I cant even begin to find drivers that might go to it for Win7x64
can anyone offer fixes for these problems? or should I just go back to vistax32? at least everything worked on there...
