Have you got details of your graphics card? - sounds like that could possibly be the root of the problem. check you have the latest drivers for it and any updates. What soundcard do you have? what driver are you running it from? the common thing between all of the problems you describe is audio. Check there is no audio driver update (ask with details if you need help with this). Next easy thing to try is to check if you have the most up-to-date version of DirectX. It is used by a lot of games and a few video players; http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=fh;DE;drxint Next thing to do is give us the details of your system. We need to know operating system, graphics card make and model, monitor, memory specs , CPU type and speed, and what type of games/videos do you have problems with. What music/video player are you having trouble with (if windows media player, let us know which version), and have you tried others with any different results. If your graphics card has its own fan - check it is not clogged with dust and it spins when you turn on a video or game. While you're there check the other fans. What do you connect to the PC often - MP3 players/cameras/'phones etc. What do you have the PC set up with - what speakers/amplifier, what monitor/tv, wireless/ps2/serial/USB mouse/keyboard etc. Hope we can help - sorry need more info. :)

I have a Realtek audio chip on an Asus motherboard and a set of 5.1 speakers installed on my pc. I have set up my sound settings at 7.1 in order to play all speakers. They all heard when I check them...


If your motherboard audio chip supports 7.1 audio then it should support 5.1 too. If so then go for 5.1 since choosing 7.1 and using a 5.1 system will result in loss of audio as you are missing two channels (6 channels on 5.1 and 8 channels on 7.1). The 5.1/7.1 option through the sound settings should emulate surround audio through almost all players. For VLC, try the following:
  1. Go to [Preferences]--->Check [Advanced Options]
  2. Then expand [Audio] and select [Output Modules]
  3. Change [Audio Output Module] to [Win32 WaveOut]
  4. Click save and restart VLC
Hope that helps. If not try Media Player Classic instead of VLC. It supports 7.1 and other surround audio by default.

I recently downloaded about 60 songs onto a new 4GB micro SD card for my sister's Disney MP3 player. I've double checked to make sure the music files were properly formatted from iTunes (AAC version) and...


I would stick to iTunes if that is where you downloaded the music.

In iTunes right click on one of the songs you purchased and click in "get info". At the bottom of the "Summary" tab it says Where the file is located. Does it end in .mp3

If not, you will probably need to convert them into .MP3 format before they will play on the Disney MP3 Player.

To do this:
  1. Open iTunes Preferences.
    Windows: Choose Edit > Preferences.
    Mac: Choose iTunes > Preferences.
  2. Click the General tab, then click the Importing Settings button in the second section of the window.
  3. Change the Import Using: to MP3 Encoder
  4. Click OK and OK again
  5. Find the song you want to convert to MP3 and select it by clicking once, not a double click
  6. Click the "Advanced" menu item at the top of the window
  7. Choose "Create MP3 version"
Use that MP3 version on the Disney MP3 player and see if that helps.

If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thank You,
Brandon

Dear Sir or Madam When I want to play a music on my computer , I get this error: "Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound...


Yes there is something wrong! The sound card driver is corrupted!

YOu need to check on device manager again. Look for your drivers there.

If you do not see the EXACT NAME of your sound card, then the driver that is installed is a DEFAULT driver made by the os.

Ex: This is a sound card driver name listed in Device manager:
IDT HIGH DEFINISION AUDIO

This is an example of a default sound card driver that will not work well on certain sounds or will not work at all:

LEGACY SOUND DEVICE

Even thought you many not see a yellow question mark (which you should be checking for too just in case)on any of the listings for your hardware, chances are you are still using a default sound card driver due to a corruption to its original sound card driver.

So recheck your device manager and find out the exact name of your original sound card. If there is no match to your exact name of your sound card, then you need to REINSTALL your sound card driver again and you will immediatly see your sound card working again :)

If this does not work, you may have to change your sound card.

Hope this helps :)

No sound (AsRock P4 Combo)


1.
Check the speaker connections - take the plugs out and put them back.
Make sure the speakers get power.
Test the sound with headphones.
If it is a Laptop be sure the speakers are turned on (Usually an Fn function key).

2.
Load a system restore point from a date before the sound problem started.

3.
Has the audio service been started by Windows?
Click Start > Run > type services.msc - then click OK.
In the new window - Scroll down to "Windows Audio", right-click on it and select Properties.
Another new window - set the startup type to Automatic, click Apply and then click Start.

Have a look in "Play control" and any other sound mixer you may have installed to check if the sound is muted.
Go to Control Panel >> Sounds and Audio Devices.
Check to see if your sound card is listed.
If no audio device is detected proceed to step 5.

Be sure the Volume is turned up (at least half way).
The MUTE box should not be checked (go to the advanced window and make sure that nothing is muted).
Select the proper speaker settings under speaker settings advanced tab.
Set the speaker setup settings accordingly.

Is your sound card the default playback device?
Right click the speaker icon next to the clock >> Choose "Adjust Audio Properties".
Click on the Audio tab and select the correct device.
If you make any changes - click Apply, then OK before you close the window.

If you use another type of audio program, please refer to that program's trouble shooter for diagnostics.

Creative Sound Card owners can try this:
Click Start >> Programs >> Creative >> "Sound Card", for example Audigy >> Creative Restore Defaults.


4.
Check to see if the sound card is properly installed in the Device Manager.

Right click My Computer >> Properties >> Hardware Tab >> Device Manager >> in the "View" menu - click "Show hidden devices".

If there are yellow or red "marks" next to the audio, "Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus" or an unknown device - install drivers (see step 6).

If Windows does not detect an ONBOARD (Integrated) sound card >> Check to see if it is ENABLED in the BIOS (Setup).
If Windows does not detect a PCI sound card (an Added sound card) >> Shut the computer down, disconnect power. Take the sound card out and put it back again - if possible, use another PCI slot.

5.
Install available Windows updates, including DirectX.
Go to Start >> All Programs >> Windows Update.

6.
Installing drivers:

6a. Install the chipset driver first >> Reboot.

6b. If a "Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus" is present in Device manager >> install the driver >> Reboot.

6c. Uninstall old sound drivers:
Check in Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel for an Audio device driver (i.e. AC97).
Go to the Device Manager and uninstall the driver (Right click on the device >> uninstall).

Install the sound driver >> Reboot.

The drivers to install can be found on a CD that came with the computer/motherboard/sound card.

Audio problem


You need to install the correct driver for the sound device, because with win XP it can install a generic driver but it wont be working properly so if its a built sound on your MOBO you need to install driver for it from the MOBO setup CD.
