    can you give me the make / model of the machine ?

  • Brian Connelly

    it can be that the on board sound is on its way out !

    my best advice is to get a pci sound card to end all the stress

    they can be bought very cheap and are easy to install

    its very hard trying to diagnose blind from the machine

    but my best answer is to get a pci card.

    then all the problems will disappear !

    click here so see one

    ebay etc you will get one for next to nothing

Cannot hear sound from iTunes on new computer with windows 8.1


At this point I am not sure if you can be able to here sound from any of your installed players like Windows media player or VLC or anything like that. Well if you can not here any sound coming from the computer from any of your players, then there must be a problem with the sound or audio drivers on your computer. They might have been deleted or altered in some way. You just need to go to the website for the manufacturer of your computer and download the audio drivers that are compatible with windows 8. But if you can hear sound from other players except Itunes, then I suggest that you uninstall and re-install Itunes on your computer. The case might be that the Itunes was installed with a few errors and this might cause problems like what you are experiencing now. Re installation might work

Crackling Speakers


Hello,

That because maybe due to your itunes player which the installation got error..please try another player other than Itune or play it in windows media player or some other player which you think good player.

Or try reinstall your player or update it.

if this not resolve the issue, then verify the connection of your sound card maybe got grounded to other components making the sound crackle..Or you may try attached a grounding wire from your stuff directed to the ground or attached in any metal that is connected to the ground to eliminate noise.

please tell me what ever result for further analysis

No sound


Hello hassahabi, what I think happened to your sound is this. When the apple iTunes software installed you allowed iTunes to take over all your sound files within the system. To gain back your system sounds try this: Open windows Explorer & left click once on C:\
Once high-lighted, left click on Tools & left click the tab " File Types ". Scroll down the list to, WAV.
Left click once on WAV - wav sound. The sound file should open with Windows Media Player & not to ipod or iTunes. Click the, "Change" button. The "Open With", window will open. Find, Windows Media Player in the list. Left click once on it & than click OK. Most of windows sounds are located in the C:\Windows\Media folder. I suggest you also set MID to open with Windows Media Player.
Once finished close all opened windows & restart your system.
When windows finishes loading open the sound icon by first double left clicking the sound icon. Check that the wave slide bar is all the way up! Close that window. Now right click once on the sound icon & left click "Adjust Audio Properties". Sounds and Audio Devices Properties window will open.
See if the play button is no longer grayed out.
If it is grayed out you'll have no choice but to uninstall the apple software to free your system sounds.
Next round of ipod iTunes installation watch your screen's & choose not to allow iTunes to control, *.wav sound files.

Good luck hassahabi!

Disable the onboard audio in the system bios and goto your local box store and buy a sound blaster pci audio card. The onboard sound or NIC is usually the first thing to fail, the only way to fix it is to disable it and replace with an audio card or replace the motherboard.
