Question about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio Sound Card

2 Answers

Computer Noises.... I have tried changing settings within my pc.... I have tried different sources etc.... and I still get an an**ying computer backround **ise all the time when I am monitoring my mix. I can tell that this sound is coming from the pc becuase when I plug it in the backround **ise begins.... when I unplug it, the backround **ise stops. Also whenever I move my mouse, turn on my external fan or do anything in my pc, the **ise persists and will actually correlate with such actions, providing a sound for everything going on inside my laptop. Is there a setting or anything that I should fix? Or is my usb ports all have a short in them? HELP PLZ!!!!! and yes.... this backround **ise happens when I record, and when ** audio is playing, and when my gains and line settings are all the way down.

    How do I "super ground" something?  You say to connect them to the ground/chassis of the desktop.  What materials do I need to do so?  Thankyou for your response IB42008... you rock!  If this fixes my problem, you will have saved me ALOT of grief.

I just want to say that I'm having the same problem, but I'm afraid I don't understand the reply either. IB4G2008, if you could explain in more basic terms for beginners, that would be much appreciated!

Happens with a mixed ground issue. I had same thing with my laptop. only way to avert this is to super ground your digital sound devices...and connect them to ground/chassis of the desktop, if that's your option.
used to be called 60 cycle hum in olden days.

Reset admin password


Right click My Computer > Manage > Local Users and Group > Users. Right click Administrator > Set Password. You must be an Administrator to do this. This can be done in User Accounts within Control Panel (Win 7). Same principle, just looks different.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lost Windows password:
  1. Log in as Administrator (try safe mode if you don't see Administrator).
  2. Login as other user (if other user is availible) and manage users. Must be an administrator. Steps noted above!
  3. Reformat computer.
  4. Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html

I dont have sound in my pc.i dont know where to fix my problem


If you sue external speakers or headphones, follow these instructions. If you have a notebook computer & are using the onboard speakers, skip to the *Windows section below.

You can start by checking your speakers, if any. Make sure they are powered on and functional. You may also want to test there speakers on a different computer just to make sure.

If the speakers work on a different computer but YOURS still does not have sound, try a known-working set of headphones. Make sure the jack is seated correctly as it may be loose.

*Windows:
Check the volume controls on in Windows. If windows does not have any volume controls, then chances are, the sound drivers are not installed. Check your computer manual to find out what model it is, then visit the manufacturer's website to download the appropriate drivers and software for the sound card.

Note that if you have used external speakers or headphones anytime before this issue started, you may have to re-plug the device & unplug it again & allow Windows to detect that it's unplugged (for HD-capable audio devices in Windows Vista or 7).

If you do have HD audio in Windows Vista or 7, right-click on the volume control in the notification tray on the bottom-right corner of your screen and select "Playback devices"...

... then make sure you choose the appropriate output device (whatever it is that you actually use: Speakers, headphones, HDTV output, etc).

Im getting static in the background


Try muting all input sources that you do not need: line-in, mic, etc.

You can also try the card in a different slot. Some slots are closer to devices in the case that can cause noise.

I have a Dell Dimension 9100 and Creative Soundblaster X-Fi OEM soundcard. I have no sound coming from my speakers, only a crackling noise. I have tried all tests available on the PC/control panel. I have...


Ok
Do the following, power up the PC and hit F12
Select DIAGNOSTICS - let em load and run only the sound test. This will make sure the speakers and cable are working. (make sure thewy are plugged into the right hole) then power on the system and hit F2 to enter the BOIS and make sure you disable on the on-board sound card. This is the one that is on the motherboard not the add in card.
Reboot the system and then try your speakers in the SB card and see what happens
Hope this healps you

No sound upon installing E-MU 0404 pci card and driver


Hey ya'll.
I had the same problem with everything installed,icons on the screen etc...I took my stuff to my computer wizard and he came with the following solution which is:
Make sure that you have a Windows XP "SP2 or GREATER" this is the kicker.Go to the requirements sheet if you need more info.
Anyway I did that upgrade from SP1 to SP2 and it works like a charm with pristine sound.
Good luck fellows.

Sound Won't Work on Dell Computer


Go to Control Panel and go to sound and audio devices. It should have the name of the speakers you are using. If it doesnt then the speakers might not work on that PC. Get a new set of speakers, and try again. It should work on the new ones. If it doesnt, get it checked at PC World or a PC repair store to get it checked, as the problem will be internal in the PC. Hope it works.

Crackling noise


I had the same problem initially. Upgrading the RAM from 1GB to 3GB seems to have done the trick in my case. Mind you, I also reinstalled Windows XP, so that could be another factor.
