The easiest way, you can scan your computer to know which driver you is required. There is a free software that does that. It is found on the website www.driverguide.com. Under the title Welcome to driverguide!, there is a small section 'Quick start'. On the second step 'Scan your system for updates', click on that link and then another screen comes up. Click on Click to start: the download starts. Once it is downloaded, you execute the file (drvscn.exe).

The sound from my tv will not play through my surround sound.


Make sure that you have your receivers input selector to the correct input that you plugged your tv into. Try plugging the tv output into the working input that you have for the dvd. If the tv still does not work, and you are using a working input, then clearly, there is no workable signal going into the receiver. In tv menu check the audio output format.
Some tv sets output their audio signal in digital format. If you plug that into a receiver with an analog audio input it will result in silence.

Winamp radio, once I select PLAY it returns with DirectSound driver fault.I have windows XP thank you


The way that we were able to fix the problem was by rolling our sound card driver back to the previous version and then we installed the latest driver for the sound card. Here are some detailed steps you can follow:
  • Roll the driver back to it's previous version (only tested with Windows XP)
    • Right-click on 'My Computer' and choose 'Properties'
    • Click the 'Hardware' tab
    • Click on 'Device Manager'
    • Find 'Sound, video and game controllers' and click the plus sign next to it to expand it
    • Find your sound card and double-click it, this will bring up it's Properties
    • Click the 'Driver' tab
    • Click on the 'Roll Back Driver' button. If there is a driver backed up for your device it will roll back to that driver, otherwise a message tells you that 'No driver files have been backed up for this device'.
      • If there is not a backed up driver for your sound card you may want to just click the 'Uninstall' button to completely remove the current driver that is giving you problems.
  • Install the latest driver from your sound card manufacturer's website
    • Find the manufacturers website and look for a drivers/downloads area
    • Download the most recent driver available for your sound card
    • Follow the instructions from your manufacturer as to how to install the new driver
  • Reboot your computer to make sure it loads the new driver
  • Try to play your MP3 or other audio file in Winamp
If these steps do not fix your problem then there are some additional steps you can take. Some computers have more than one sound card in them. If this is the case then it is possible that the default sound card has somehow been changed. To make sure windows is using the right sound card go to the 'Control Panel' and double-click the 'Sounds and Audio Devices' entry. Click on the 'Audio' tab and in the Sound playback area make sure the Default device is set to your preferred sound card. You could also try using a different sound card in your system if all else fails.
If you are still having trouble with this error you can press 'Ctrl+P' while in Winamp to bring up the Winamp preferences. Go to the 'Plug-ins' section and click on 'Output'. Trying changing the output from DirectSound output to WaveOut output and then close the preferences and close Winamp. Open Winamp again and see if it works now.

Sound problem


Hi,

I have a creative SoundBlaster LIVE! 24 Bit External Sound Card and this annoyed me for weeks.

depending on your surround sound reciever depends on the solution.

i have an Acoustic Solutions surround sound system with coxial and optical inputs, aswell as stereo red & white jack inputs.

not knowing the method or connection your using makes it difficult to give you a single solution so i'll list a few.

The soundblaster software shoudl include the Creative Audio console with all sorts of effects, one is CMSS (CMSS-3D) Stereo widening which is still stereo but gives a surround sound effect.. but i'm guessing you payed for 5.1 and you want 5.1 onto the next part

5.1 surround sound can only be produced when the actuall audio your playing contains 5 channels of audio, for example you cant play a stereo song in 5.1 surround sound without some sort of hardware or software sound manipulation. Luckily my surround sound system has Pro Logic II built in and some other effects which convert a 2.1 signal to a 5.1 signal and it works brilliantly. I'm not sure of a software alternative.

setup for your soundcard will be different under XP and Vista also, but there should be a properties option for your sound device where you can select your speaker setup such as headphones, built in speakers, 2.1 speakers, 5.1 speakers, 7.1 speakers and you should be able to manage this from the creative software.

If using Coxial / Optical or SPDIF under vista you MUST set the playback device as SPDIF, at least you have to with my sound card and drivers and seems to be a limitation of the actual sound card drivers for vista.

Personally i was looking forward to hearing the windows login melody in 5.1 surround sound too, but this doesnt happen.

Infact i find that almost all programs bar a few will not play Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1 surround sound via any or my output options hence the next solution..

if you have the 5.1 sound but winamp simply just plays it in stereo try the following.

You need to use DirectSound Output:

Preferences (Ctrl-P) > Plug-ins > Output > Select "DirectSound Output"

That should work in most cases, but if not, then:

Checkmark: "Allow hardware acceleration" in DirectSound Output config,
and make sure your sound card/chip is selected as Output Device.

Note that any changes will take effect only after playback is restarted.
In some cases, a Winamp restart is required.

If that doesn't work make sure you have the latest version of DirectX
(v8.x or higher is required)

Winamp 5.25/5.3 and higher:
For actual multi-channel files (ie. aac/wav/ac3/ogg/wma files encoded in 5.1ch surround, as opposed to standard 2-channel stereo mp3's), you need to checkmark "Allow surround sound" in 'Winamp > Prefs > Playback' for the music to play in its original 5.1 channel format (Note that this setting is checkmarked by default).

Windows Vista:
In addition to the above instructions, Vista users will also need to go to:
Control Panel > Sound > Playback tab > Speakers > Configure:
Select: 5.1/7.1 Surround.
Then:
Control Panel > Sound > Playback tab > Speakers > Properties > Enhancements tab
and checkmark "Speaker Fill"

Hope this helps
