Question about PC Desktops

13 Answers

I installed a creative xtreme audio card under xp. All works fine, except Youtube. With Youtube you get a burst of sound, then the video slows to a crawl, the audio just gurgles, and the mouse reponse drops to practically nil. I have done a clean boot several times and re-installed flash. It doesn't help.

    The Internet speed is definitely high enough for streaming. I am running other computers and devices with no streaming problems.

  • plillies Aug 26, 2008

    I have tried both firefox and explorer. Same problem.

  • plillies Aug 26, 2008

    I am running at 2.2 GHz and have 1G of RAM.

  • plillies Aug 26, 2008

    Well that was interesting. After I ran the K-Lite Codec Pack, I no
    longer lost control of my mouse. However, same symptoms as before as
    far as the audio goes (burst of sound followed by low gurgling), but
    now I have control of the mouse.

    But because I could use my
    mouse, I was able to toot around in the task manager. CPU usages spikes
    upward from around 10% to 100% when you start a Youtube video. The
    video, BTW, is extremely jerky.

    I have re-installed xtreme audio from the original CD multiple times. That won't fix it.

  • plillies Aug 27, 2008

    Well, it might seem a nice thing to try now that my mouse works better, to re-install the drivers from the CD once again, but before I waste time doing that, I thought I would just run dxdiag again to see whether the mouse really was working better.

    When I went to the Dxdiag Music tab and clicked Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio, no sound came out. Instead, I once again lost control of the mouse and barely managed to shut the PC down. Shut down was very slow and disorganized. Some high priority process was obviously not wanting to let go.


  • plillies Aug 27, 2008

    The computer is 3 or 4 years old. Although it has 1G of RAM I am wondering whether perhaps the RAM is too slow for the audio board. If you offer an explanation along these lines, I would like to understand why it only fails with Youtube and similar files.

  • plillies Aug 27, 2008

    Excellent. This could be the answer. I seem to be using a Radeon 9600 driver. Trouble is, according to ATI, that is not an option for an integrated video such as I have. This is a rather old computer. Is there an easy way to find out what my video hardware is? I no longer have the motherboard documentation.

  • plillies Aug 28, 2008

    Well, it turned out I do have a Radeon 9600 card installed. The drivers were from 2004, so I updated them. I also updated the mouse driver. It didn't fix anything. Same symptoms as before and still crashes when you test the audio board in Diagdx.

  • plillies Aug 28, 2008

    One other detail. When I updated the video drivers it said:

    "Severe Error: No GUID"

    That's probably not good.


  • plillies Aug 30, 2008

    It looks like you guys aren't going to be able to help me. Someone suggested I might be having some kind of system conflict. I have noted the IRQs displayed on the boot screen. Does this lead to any suggestions?

    5 - OHCI
    12 - OHCI
    11 - EHCI
    11 - Network controller
    14 - EDI
    12 - Single comm
    5 - Multimedia
    12 - Display
    9 - ACPI



  • plillies Aug 31, 2008

    Well, I think I found out what was wrong with my computer. It had a virus. There were three components:

    getsn32.dll
    hljwugsf.bin
    uoyzsydz.exe

    The latter file was hopelessly sprinkled throughout my registry, so I'm going to have to re-install XP.

    Hopefully all will work normally afterwards.


  • plillies Sep 05, 2008

    As I said, I had a horrible virus and had to toast my registry to get rid of it. What I did is copied the repair registry over top of the registry that was there.

    Now the virus is probably gone, but all I have is a bare bones XP system with no connection to the internet. I am wondering if anyone can explain how to get my internet connection back. I have a high-speed LAN going through a router.

    I figure if I can get my connection to the internet back, I can re-install all my software without reformatting.

    The make a new connection wizard does not provide the options I need.

    Any suggestions?

Have you tried updated drivers from the Creative website. Also make sure the chipset driver for your motherboard is up to date since this card is PCI-Express isn't it? If you running Vista I know that have been problem with creative drivers, make sure you are running SP1 for Vista. And you may not have much luck if you're running 64bit Vista or XP.

I assume you uninstalled any previous sound driver, and you have the latest driver from the sound card web site, as it sounds as if you have a conflict between your sound and video driver, hence the mouse problem, check for the latest video driver and sound, if there are newer versions uninstall the old ones first

    If you have shared RAM on your video card, the card is using system RAM, add a 1 GB module, they go cheap nowadays.

  • Ginko
    Ginko Aug 27, 2008

    It looks like the two things are related. If the mouse and the audio drivers are probably in conflict. You should reinstall both of them.

    More likely it is the audio driver or the Sound Blaster hardware itself that is giving troubles.




  • Ginko
    Ginko Aug 28, 2008

    You have a conflict involving the video drivers, it is caused by several Windows registry values that does not get reset when you reinstall Windows.
    Only easy way to fix this is reinstalling Windows from scrap.
    If you do not want to reinstall Windows you will have to work on windows registry purging some video related registry entries.

    Here you find the How to, you will need to go over first page and read the following of the procedure, read also feedback from users one got Guid error (DriverHeaven.net).
    Do a backup of your files first.

  • Ginko
    Ginko Aug 31, 2008

    It is not someone suggesting it, is that you have a conflict between hardwares, probably in use of memory resources.

    "Severe: Error: No GUID on video section"

    This is not an IRQ conflict, when it is an IRQ conflict you see immediately on device properties, and usually you see an yellow exclamation mark on device list.
    IRQ means Interrup request, it is the priority in using the CPU during a CPU cycle.
    When is IRQ conflict you usually Fix it just reinstalling the drivers, in your case here you need to purge registri entries and apply a patch (or do a fresh installation of Windows).

    Try putting a corded mouse to test the system, if you do not have the problem decide between replacing mouse or attempting to fix the system.
    If you still have the problem, mouse disappearing was only collateral, only choice is fix the system problem.
    Again here is the how to : Here you find the How to.
    I dont care what you read from others experts, someone may had been not very precise.
    Read here solution on first pages, Here you find the How to.

Try downloading a video player for web viewing. You can find a couple that are youtube specific at filehippo.com or download.com I recommend downloading one or two that covers most video formats from the web, this way you won't have any problem at other sites you may want to watch videos from.

I have a creative sound card and i want its sound driver pls tell me what to do vijay


Look at the model number on the Creative sound card. You want to match up the correct drivers.

Once you find it go to Creative Worldwide Support,

http://support.creative.com/

A) Click on the SoundBlaster icon.

B) Click on the soundcard icon that matches yours. I'm going to click on the X-Fi Xtreme Audio icon to use for an example.

Here on the next page we see we are presented with two driver choices.

1) Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio driver 1.04.0090

and,

2) Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio pack 1.04.0079


The 1.04.0090 audio driver is for Vista, and Windows 7.
It also contains the Creative Audio console.
Click on Show Details to the right for more information.

The 1.04.0079 audio pack is for Windows XP, and Vista.
It also has the Creative Audio Console.
Click on Show Details to the right for more information.

When you have the applicable choice, click on the red Download.

On the next page read the Creative Software License Agreement, then click on Agree.

A small window will come up. Write down the file name.
For example I am looking at Opening XFXA_PCDRV_LB_1_04_0079

The file name is > XFXA_PCDRV_LB_1_04_0079.exe

This is the file name I will look for.

Click on Save File.

A small window will come up on the left.
Quickly look at the heading of this window.
This is where the file will download to.

Look for My Documents, (Documents for Vista), or Downloads, or Desktop, in the heading.

Close all windows, go back to the desktop screen. See the file name?

NO?
Click on Start > then click on My Documents. (WinXP)

Don't see the file name there?
Look for a folder named Downloads.
Double-click on the Downloads folder name look for the file name.

When you see the file name double-click on it. Follow the easy instructions of the Installation Wizard.
(Essentially just click on Next, Next, and Finish. Then restart your computer.

    When this happen it is often a problem with the compression codes used by youtube streaming. Often they are not being managed if the browser is not up to date.

    Sound


    Did you have sound before?
    If yes then follow this for xp:
    Start/control panel/Sounds, Speech, & Audio Devices/Sound & Audio Devices. Is page greyed out? If yes then most likely its your sound card or on board sound, or your missing drivers.
    If not greyed out go to "Sounds" tab, click on any "Program events" sound under Windows then click little black arrow next to browse on bottom right . Sound? If the arrow is greyed out then its the same; audio hardware device or audio driver.
    If there is still no sound click on "Hardware" tab and first Sound,video and game controller then "properties". This will tell you under "Device status" if this device is working properly. Do this for each Sound, video ect.... selection in the list. I have found there are usually 6 listings. If not then you are most likely missing a sound driver.
