It will work for a while then dissconect. i go to preperences to try and get it working but then none of the audio drivers will work. they just dissconnect instantly. All other sound on pc is fine. If i restart the pc it works for about a minute then dissconects.

    I have a similar problem. I installed a driver that came with my Behringer USB midi controller. When I start Reason without the midi controller connected via USB, Reason says that the driver could not be found. I know that's because the controller isn't connected, of course. But I also have to connect the USB cable to the very same port I installed the Behringer driver on, otherwise this driver can't be used. When I want to use a different USB port, that means I will have to select a different driver in the Reason Preference menu. It sounded a bit odd to me at first, but that's the way it works.

    There is a signal in Reason when I press a key on the midi controller, but no sound. Not even when I play a Reason song that I recorded earlier. Every other sound on my computer works though. When I select the ASIO Multimedia Driver, I do get sound in Reason, but at a very high latency.

Hey, this worked for me!
Edit: Preferences: Page: Audio Then simply change the 'Audio Card Driver' until you can hear reason playing sound.

Hello to all,

I came across a similar problem with all of the symptoms you described, although I use Windows 7 and a Edirol UA-25X.

With one particular song I am creating, the audio driver just stops responding right after a loop.

I figured that, since I have a template of instruments set as a default song to start making new musics, I removed the last instrument that I inserted and after an audio driver reset the problem stopped (note that the audio driver reset was tested before without success).

So my guess is for you to try removing some instruments and try. Maybe a sound sample is jamming the audio driver at a particular point.

I hope it will solve your problems.

Greetings from Portugal.

I install realtek audio driver but it is not working. No sound yet in my lenovo G450 laptop. What should i do?

Hi kumarsameers,

According to you, an audio driver Realtek is already installed to your G450 laptop however still no sound is coming out of your computer. There are two possible reasons why you're still encountering this. Driver is not properly loaded or incorrect driver was installed. You may want to try the following steps I have below:

1. Go to this link where you can download and verify the correct audio driver for your Lenovo G450.

2. Once you get there look for Audio, then you'll see all the drivers available. Note: You will notice that there's no Realtek audio driver there. Everything is Conexant Audio Driver. There's a possibility that you have incompatible audio driver for your hardware. So, uninstall the current driver that you have and try downloading the Conexant audio driver. Make sure that you'll select the one which is for your specific Operating System and version.

3. Just click on the name of your selected audio driver.

4. You'll have the option to click on download.

5. After downloading it to your PC, install it.

6. Finally, after installation make sure to reboot your computer.

This should fix the problem that you have with the audio. Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Windows vista has determined that the configuration does not support roxio easy vhs to dvd

How old is the program? There are lots of programs that vista won't run, I keep one xp computer for that reason.
Have you tried to right click the program on the desktop and under properties, try to run it under xp? Sometimes it works.
Also check their website for new updates or drivers.
Hope it helps.
