What about about the volume control on your keyboard(if you are on a laptop), is that one fully open?

It's all the way up and there is no headset. It's acting like it's playing.

For some stupid reason, it recognizes Vista from the other computer and is trying to d/l whatever from that program, I think onto mine. I don't know. My only explanation that I have so far.

I have WinULT7, but it's trying to d/l Vista components. Now, I'm confused.

Please try and answer my questions and I will have you sorted in no time at all/
or you have physical problem!

Press Start
Control panel
Configure the drop down menu (top right)
for "Large Icons"

Double Click the icon Device Manager.

Click on the + sign next to "Sound Video and Game Controllers"

Is there a Exclamation mark on any of the entries there?

Next on the same place Identify your sound card, It will be on of the entries
from the above list!

Right click and identify if it is disabled. If it is Enable it?

Let me know how this goes... I am waiting for your replies!

No, it's normal, and I know how to do that.


It was the first thing I checked.

Going to go lay down.

Ugh.

While we're waiting, let me just note that Vista and Win7 drivers are often interchangeable. The system looks inside the driver files to determine compatibility with your hardware. The sytem will not install incompatible hardware under normal circumstances. In fact it is extremely difficult to install incompatible drivers even deliberately....

Check the sound card entry again in the device manager.
I'm wondering if it is "High definition audio device"

If it is you might need to install the UAA driver again.

If it's not that , try going to "Control panel"Sounds
and checking the "Playback" settings. it might have gotten moved.

I'll check back tomorrow or you are welcome to U2U me.

Here is link to the MIcrosoft driver UAA

Seems to have worked itself out. I did the large Icons and did playback on stereo, after started messing with it, the sound came back.


I also ran DIVX too, so not sure if that played a part.

Thank you.

Going to bed.

As you, I also believe that it was Windows Update. Here's a tip on Windows Automatic Update: Turn it OFF--completely disable it--and never turn it on again. MS uses it to push a lot of incompatible and experimental (beta) crap on their users.

If you want to be sure you only get the appropriate security updates, use Advanced System Care and check the box that says "Vulnerability Fix."

Also, I have a free program that will completely uninstall all the Windows Updates that have already been installed. (You have to do them individually, and it's a time-consuming pain-in-the-butt, but I've used it to great advantage.) If you're interested in trying it I'll go find it. I've forgotten its name and where I got it, but if you want it I'll go looking for it....

what really annoys me is there is too much automation in this world and computers were not meant for everyone. try having a slow internet connection and having java, windows update, antivirus software, antispyware software, automatic disk defragmentation, a little spyware, a few too many add-ons, some download manager............

consuming system resources........

with limited random access memory=

DISASTEROUSLY SLOW PERFORMANCE(like being on the los angeles freeway during rushtime).

All this crap is by default set to automatic because too many ignorant folks complain to the respective software manufacters of their own incompetance, without even realising it, WANTING things to be automatic=easy?

From my experience I want TOTAL CONTROL of what i do and WHEN i do it. the same thing applies to airline pilots who crash their airplanes with hundreds of people onboard because they don't fully comprehend the automation process.

ARGHH

Linux is not the solution. I like XP much more than Vista, but unfortunately had to accept this new, crappy and over-automated pos os after I trashed my old laptop and got a new one. I guess I could revert back after formatting the hard drive but from what I undestand it is not totally compatible with multi-processor systems.

Just recently I found out about automatic disk defragmentation and that explains the rampant hard disk noise/action. If you install lots of programs when you buy the computer plus remove all the bloatware that is forced on the consumer then the system becomes overactive and user input slow as hell.
