Question about Computers & Internet

I use free spotify on my asus laptop. Every now and then it tells me spotify can't play music because there is a problem with my sound card? I don't even know what that is or if I have one. P

It only does this once in a while and I'm trying to figure out how to get it to just let me enjoy music

Hello,

On PC's and Laptops there are usually built in hardware items on the motherboard. These items include USB ports, Ethernet (RJ-45), Sound card with color jacks (3.5mm), video card (HDMI, DVI, VGA), SD card, etc. To use these hardware items you need an operating system (XP, 7, Knoppix, Unix, etc.) and a driver. The driver allows the hardware (sound card) and the software (OS) to communicate.

Possible causes:
Compatibility issues - intermittent problems
hardware failure
driver problems - wrong driver - out of date driver

I hope this helps!

    Hello: Start>right click on "my computer">click "manage">in the left colum click "device manager">click the triangle in the right column to the left of "sound, video, and game controllers".>a list should apear. You can then right click on an item on the list and "update driver" or go to "properties" to check is the device is working properly. If there is a "Yellow Question Mark" the driver is not installed properly.

Base from the description of your problem this can be related to the audio device that is installed on the computer, what we can do here first is to uninstall the audio device and then restart the computer to reinstall it back and then check if that corrects the problem.
To uninstall it we need to do that from Device manager, to open device manager Right click Mycomputer from the start Menu and click Properties > Hardware > Device manager then once you have Device manager open like for Audio device then right click the your audio device there and click uninstall once done restart the computer and check if the problem is fix.

It's not your sound card. Speakers are the problem, they have a connector on the motherboard, it could be this connector unplug only a bit from his slot, or your speakers are broken.

I have an ac delco car radio, a few decent speakers and a shop that needs music. My question is. Is it possible to control what is played from my Spotify playlist?


No unless you make a playlist and it is accepted. Making a playlist in YouTube may be easier with an ipad or cheap tablet and a Bluetooth speaker.

Itunes and Spotify crash when connected to denon reciever


Yes it sound like you have a fault on the power amp section. Perhaps a faulty transistor? It might be difficult to sought out, unless you have a bit of experience in tracking down these types of faults.

I have an ASUS A6M laptop and i cannot get any sound


Too many possibilities; can you be more specific, like when you try to play music, does the music "appear" to play, but no sound?
... or .. the music thing gives an error message like: "No sound or audio device..." or "need codec..."
Do videos play, but no sound?

If it worked before:
1. play a video and "un-mute" the sound bar.
2. Go to the "sound" icon in the [Control Panel] and change the volume setting (un-mute)

Please comment....

Sound card?


this could be a result of the software malfunction ...i'm talking about i-tunes,if your computer plays other sounds,it clearly shows that its not a problem with the sound card which is nothing but the hardware for playing sounds in the computer.

for further clarifications revert on this page.
