The Problem is C-media doesn't have proper driver support. It seems to be the on board sound card. The only real fix is to get a different sound card. Hopefully c-media will eventuall address the problem in a new driver.

OK, so for people with the same problem as me(sound routing through the controller), go into settings/control panel/sounds, speech, and audio devices/sounds and audio devices, and change the default output from the 360 controller headset to SB Live! Wave Device, or whatever you're using. Sound returns no problem, and I can use my original headset.

As for fuzzy sound, there might be some solution in these settings.

Well, not really a solution, but I have a similar problem. The sound disappears when I plug it in, but if I disconnect it comes back. SO I tried plugging the headset that came with my 360 into the controller, and I could hear the sound.

I don't like the 360 headset though, as it's just 1 earpiece and kinda uncomfortable, but I'm guessing I can play around with my comps output settings a bit.

At least for some the problem seems to be the sound just gets routed through the headset.

SOURCE: Xbox 360 Controller for Windows causes fuzzy sound

Found a solution! Came here to post it, since I could not find the solution ANYWHERE on the internet...


Using an Xbox 360 controller or any other Xbox 360 peripheral with 95% of USB sound cards or headsets will produce HORRIBLE sound input and output. It sounds like a robot has swallowed and spat back out the waveforms. Even if the 360 peripheral is removed any USB audio devices plugged in after the fact will still sound corrupted until a fresh reboot without the 360 peripheral plugged in.



I believe that the problem is somehow linked to the "generic root hub" driver, which hasn't been updated since 2001, thanks M$.


The solution (pick one of 3):
As long as the 360 peripheral is on it's own internal virtual root hub it will not interfere with other devices. You can force it to use another root hub by doing ONE of the following:
1) Fill up your usb ports with other devices till it shifts to using a secondary root hub, then plug in the 360 peripheral. This could take up to 10 USB things, depending on your motherboard and the maximum devices on each root hub.
2) Use an extra internal PCI-USB card for the 360 peripheral.
3) Use an extra external USB hub for the 360 peripheral.



NOTE: A reboot is usually required to clear up the driver's confusion.

Hi i have an LG 5kg Fuzzy logic top loader and it will wash and fill the water but wont rinse or spin it does not beep or anything it just stops and the time displays stays on the same numbers and i can...


Need to check during the wash cycle that the power goes to the motor during the rinse or spin cycle. Try and see if you can manually go to the spin cycle without the fuzzy logic. If so the program controller unit is a suspect as the microprocessor internal memory is faulty and executes the program with error or no output.

Laptop wont boot up


Stay away from Emachines in the future. Pay another $100 and get a real computer.
1. check that nothing is in the CD-Rom drive and restart the computer.
2.Shut down the computer. Unplug the AC power. Remove the battery pack. Wait 2 minutes or until machine cools.
try powering on comp on battery alone, then try with AC power alone.

Problem


I understand that when you try to increase the volume the programs freezes.

To isolate the issue please uninstall HP Quick Touch Software.

Here are the steps to uninstall HP Quick Touch Software.

Click start and select Control Panel

Then select Programs

Then select Programs and Features.

This will show list of programs

There select HP Quick Touch Software and click on uninstall/Remove.

Then restart the Notebook . This should resolve the issue.

Thanks.

PC sound problem when using xbox360 controllers


I should have fished around a bit more before posting that I have the same problem.

Go into your control panel
Double Click the "Sounds and Audio Devices"
Select the "Audio" tab
It will show that your "Sound Playback" and "Sound Recording" default device is set to "Headset (XBOX 360 For Windows)" in the drop down menu
In that same drop down select "Sigma Tel Audio" or what ever your regular default is
Click the check box at the bottom left of the window that states, "Use only default devices"
Then click apply and viola you should be able to use your 360 controller with your pc sound

I'm only guessing here, but if you want to use the 360 headset you may have to change these settings again.

Xbox 360 Vontroller makes my audio fuzzy


same problem here. searching for a solution to this problem is like running around in circles. I'm getting to the point where I'm about to go out and buy a decent sound card and hope it works. If it doesn't I'm going to return this POS and go back to good old Logitech equipment.
