Audio :: Laptop Produces Squeaking Sound When Play Music Or Video
Apr 30, 2013
My laptop produces squeaking sound whenever i play some music or video... this sound is also observed when i put the computer on a external speakers.. The hdd is recently changed.. What can be the problem..
When the audio is on, for videos, games, music, etc. it sometimes "skips" like an old cd player. Its pretty obnoxious, and I'm wondering why exactly this is so. I'm assuming I have an old driver or something, because I upgraded my pc from win 7 to win 8 pro.
I have a HCL laptop with Windows 8 Pro x86 installed. Whenever I connect my headphones I don't get any sound from it. I have gone to my "Playback Devices" and selected "Show Disabled Devices" and the headphones are not listed there. What can I do to work around this problem ? I need my headphones to play sound. Should I update my audio driver? I upgraded my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 8 with migrating all my settings. I am using VIA HD Audio Deck as my default sound driver.
Got a new computer with Windows 8. I put a music CD in the D drive. Nothing happens. I click on DVD RW Drive (D), and it shows the tracks on the CD. I check Track 1, go up to Music Tools and click Play. A play button appears but it doesn't work.
I seem to have some Audio files that whatever I do seem always to play in the order 1,10, 11...2,20,21... etc instead of 1,2,3,.. etc
I've got the file names in the correct sequence -- it only happens on a few albums bit it's mega annoying since if I'm playing an Audiobook in a Car I obviously want the tracks to be in the CORRECT sequence.
Here's an example of what a music app shows the order - and from MP3Vtag you can see the filenames are in the correct sequence.
I listen to my music on Winamp, yet when I'm using any other program that plays some sound effect (for example, playing some online game on Google Chrome), every time the game makes a bit of a loud sound effect, for a second or so, the music lowers itself for that second, then goes back to its normal volume.
I'm assuming this is some default option that is auto-enabled in Windows 8, since Windows XP never used to do this.
What option do I need to disable so all programs playing sound will not interfere and lower other programs' volume down?
It other words, what option do I need to disable so all the sounds play at an exact same level at all times?
I have a startup video I like and have it set up to start fine in win 7 with task scheduler. In win 8 I follow the same procedure to create a basic task and it does not work. very simply :
1. create basic task
2.name it - I name it
3. trigger - I choose daily
4. daily- I choose the time
5. Action- start a program
6. start a program-now this works in win 7 fine-I browse to the video I want to play and select it. the video is set up to open with jetaudio and when I manually go to the the video and double click it the video opens fine and plays with jet audio.
7. finish-click finish
now I think I am done so I test it with 'run' and first win 8 asks how do I want to open it...jet audio, adobe, internet explorer, etc...I know I have this file type and as a matter of fact all video file defaulted to jet audio. so why it is asking this in win 8 is beyond me. it does not do this in win 7. so anyway I click jetaudio-now jetaudio starts but does not play the video. its crazy because when I go directly to the video file in 'my videos' double click it and jetaudio opens and plays the video file.
When I watch YouTube videos I get random stutters where the sound skips. The image doesn't seem to freeze though, just the sound
I also get issues with the sound streaming music online, where it pauses for a second and stutters even though it's not buffering.
When this happens, NT Kernel & System shoots up in task manager and uses more CPU than the browser. This by the way happens in every browser, IE, Chrome or Firefox.
It doesn't happen when playing music in iTunes or watching videos from my hard drive.
That being said I'm not posting about a buffering type stutter, I am aware of that and this is not it. This is like basically suddenly the computer has a big spike in memory or cpu usage and the video/sound clip stutters for a sec. But it happens often enough to be very annoying. In a 15 min YouTube clip it happened 10 times.
I have reinstalled my IDT High Definition Codec and my Intel HD Graphics 4000 driver, but still the problem persists.
I don't want to convert my APE audio files. I want to play them directly in WMP 12 just like I could in previous versions of WMP (on XP, for example).
My WMP plays mp3 and FLACs fine. I installed something last week called Shark007 which enabled me to add APE files to the player, and indeed play them. However, it also caused WMP to crash every time an mp3 finished and the next track in the playlist was a FLAC, and vice versa. In other words, it couldn't handle switching from one type to another in the playlist and crashed. I had a hell of a game uninstalling that ... Back to before now... though.. stability.
Is there a codec or something that will enable me to drag a sound file with a .APE extension into the Play tab on the right side of WMP 12 (it doesn't even let me do that at the moment) and play the file ok ?
There was one on download.com but when I checked the last 5/6 reviews, they were terrible - had a lucky escape there. Didn't bother with it.
The only codec I currently have installed is 'Media Foundation FLAC Codec'. Windows 8 - 64 bit Running WMP 12.0.9200.16579 - 64 bit version.
I upgraded from Win7 to Windows 8 (both running the MS Media Center) and it's created a problem with music playback . It used to work fine, but now I get random stutters. Sometimes it goes 10 or 15 minutes without any problem, but often it's more frequent than that - and it's very, very annoying. The system runs an AMD A8 APU, Gigabyte A75M UD2H motherboard, 4 GB of RAM and Win 8 Pro with MC. I use the audio on the motherboard (Realtek HD audio) and output is via SPDIF to a dedicated DAC (brand is Rega) and then to a Denon amp. I've had no problems with audio from DVD/Blu-Ray, TV (via TV tuner card) or when streaming TV programs via the internet. Music is my prime use for the media center.
By the way, I've tried upgrading all the drivers I can, eg downloaded latest drivers from Gigabyte website, AMD website, Realtek website, Linksys website (for WUSB600N wireless network adapter). There is a newer driver for my TV tuner card (KWorld PCIE dual tuner PE310) available via MS update but last time I tried updating drivers for that card via MS update I lost all my TV channels and had to roll-back and re-scan them to recover.
I have an older MC system (running an Athlon 64 ) which I also upgraded from Win7 to Windows 8, and it seems to have no problem. It uses analogue audio out to an external amp.
I've read that Windows 8 has DPC latency problems and that can cause audio stutter. I downloaded some software which measures the latency, and it was showing a consistent value, in the "yellow" range - which seemed to mean it was slightly higher than ideal but shouldn't have been a problem. Unfortunately I can't recall the name of the software now, or where I found it(!!).
I just installed the Shark007 Codecs and reboot the PC. Because, I need to play.MKV video files. I didn't change that plugin settings. Now when I play the AVI video files which has dual audio (two languages), now Windows Media player automatically playing both audio sounds.
When I search on the internet, I found that setting Haali as the AVI splitter in the AVI tab will fix it. Unfortunately, in my situation, it didn't work. After I choose Haali splitter, it shows "Windows media player encountered a problem while playing the file" error.
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3230M CPU @ 2.30GHz 782/100mhz.) I
have Windows 8 64 bit. I have looked up this no sound problem on googgle and tried all recommendation to no avail. My audio card is not showing it has an issue. I have tried a headset and I am unable to hear any sound. I can play any videos on my computer but no sound. I can play YouTube on Chrome (no sound) but cant play YouTube in Firefox as it errors out This just happened this week - I don't know why. I don't remember downloading anything and I did not install any new software.
Got my new WIN 8 pc set up (see below). webcam videos (AVI) play fine. Digital camera videos (MOV) play fine. The issue is with MPG videos. They have sound but no picture. These are videos originally on VHS, burned to DVD and then copied to hard drive. They play fine on WIN 7, but not WIN 8. When I open them with WMP, I have sound, but no picture. When I open them with VIDEO, I get the error: "That item was encoded in a format that is not supported by your version of Windows." Do I need third-party software to view these correctly? __________________ HP PAVILION SLIMLINE 400 WINDOWS 8 4 GB RAM 64 BIT 1TB HDD
When plugging a microphone or instrument into the mic/line input of my new Windows 8.1 computer, there is a 1/8 or 1/16 note lag in the sound coming through my desktop speakers/headphones. Recording is fine, I'm talking about live monitoring.
I've used an XP computer for several years to record multi-track music, and also to record Skype conversations for a podcast. My mixer has always been plugged into the line in of the factory sound card, and monitored either with my desktop speakers or by plugging headphones into the desktop speakers, no problem.
Now I've been forced to upgrade to Windows 8.1, and the basic function of plugging a mic into an input jack and hearing myself doesn't work. This goes for analog and USB gear. There are HUNDREDS of pages on the Internet about this, since Windows 7, with no solutions.
Here is a video I made detailing the problem, and demonstrating how any proposed fix (update drivers, use the sound card software, try USB, use high performance power settings) hasn't worked.
the laptop is a ASUS K55A and originally came with windows 8. I've tried updating the drivers once the 8.1 version came out but the problem keeps recurring.
See what'll happen is, I can be watching a tv show or movie and once it's over or even if I pause it for say 10 minutes, the sound will completely cut out. I won't know this until I resume or play another video. It happens every single time, I don't get it. My only remedy right now is to open the task manager and restart the audiosrv service for the sound to work again. The funny thing is, the video will play to the end and when it stops, then the sound dies so it's not every x minutes.
On top of this, the video can be playing just fine but if I want to play a random flash video and pause my show for a bit, the flash video will play for 2 seconds then stop.
Okay well this happened like 2-3 weeks ago, i have an extremely annoying problem.. The sound of my computer would randomly stop working for some reason.. Not only that, but when i watch youtube the video or any video it won't load and it would literally pause or freeze.
To fix this i would have to disconnect/reconnect my headset or disable/enable my headset through the sound control panel; when i do this, it seems to fix everything, as the sound would come back and the videos would load back up and work normally again, but in 20min or 1hour the same problem would occur again and i would have to do the same process over and over again..
My OS is windows 8.1 And my headset is a Logitech H540
I want to Make the audio Play in Headphone as well as laptop speaker at the same time. How to achieve this?
Is it Possible to play one application (example: VLC Player) with laptop loudspeaker and another application (Example: Windows Media Player) via Headphone at the same time ? without each sound interfering?
I just purchased a new laptop 3 days ago with windows 8 and I am trying to export my movies onto itunes but they won't import. Previously on my older laptop I was running windows vista and the movie files played on itunes. They were mp4 files. I went onto the set defaults for programs and tried un-checking the mp4 box on the program "Video" which I think may be the reason I can't export them onto itunes but the box won't un-check.
I tried to play songs in windows media player but it showed some error. Then i switched to VLC just to find out that there is some problem with the sound. When I clicked on the volume icon to see if the volume levels are ok, I found the computer icon, which appears there to be like as if there is a bug sitting on the computer. I don't know much about it.
I have an Acer Aspire V5 laptop.It has a celeron cpu,and is a basic small laptop. I listen to video news online,and i have not installed or uninstalled any software prior to the problem of no sound in videos since it last played back video with sound.
I have tried to play the same video on firefox and internet explorer,and there was no sound,only video. The browsers are using FlashPlayer as far as I know.And the speakers (realtech are the default speakers-found in the control panel/sound.Is there another sound setting? The sound card works as skype works.
The volume link is not available on the video played in both browsers.And the mute button is available in IE but not in Firefox,but it is not muted(as I have checked). And the volume which is accessed from the bottom right hands side of windows is at max.
I have a hp pavilion dv6-6150us ,,i was on youtube and suddenly the sound stopped working ,,no sound coming out from the laptop speakers ,, my on-board sound card is IDT ,,i downloaded the correct driver fro hp site ,,but it wont install ,, showing an error that the hardware detected is not supported by IDT software,, the sound only works when i connect my laptop to a tv using a hdmi cable ,, there is an "X" mark on my sound icon ,,i tired everything from uninstall ,remove ,re-install the audio drive ,, i think the problem is that its only detect the graphic card hdmi as a playback audio device ,,and the onboard sound card is somehow disabled ,,i cant find the enable option on my bios setup !!
I bought the plantronics .Audio 335 studio headphones, but when I plugged them in, it screwed up my sound. My compute'rs sound is now playing through both the headphones AND the laptop speakers. After unplugging it and trying again a couple times, I gave up and decided to just use my old headphones.
Except for the sound still played through both the headphones and laptop speakers.
Distraught, I restarted my computer. When that didn't work, I restored my system to a point I made yesterday. Still no luck. I've been scrounging google for a few hours now, and nothing is working. I REFUSE to refresh my system and reinstall all of my programs again.
I've bought an HDMI cable to connect my laptop to TV, i've gone into the control panel and checked that "show disabled devices" and "show disconnected devices" are both allowed and still i dont seem to get an option for HDMI for audio. The picture has come through fine, but nothing I do with the audio seems to work.
