Earpiece not working?

Question: Earpiece not working?

I recently discovered that if I plug in my earpiece to the audio jack on my laptop, my movie will stop and if I press play again, the sound will come out from my speakers anyway and there is nothing on my earpiece.

HOWEVER, if I only plug in my earpiece halfway, then both the speakers and earpiece will have sound.

Can anyone help?

Note: The earpiece works fine on my phone

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Answer: Earpiece not working?

Is your earpiece a typical pair of stereo headphones or some type of microphone-earphone combination made to plug into your cell phone? Laptop audio output jacks are usually designed to work with typical stereo headphones using a standard 3 circuit mini-plug wiring configuration. Putting in a plug with different wiring may confuse the laptop's audio switching hardware.

My two month old 925 on 8.1 (I got 8.1 about a month ago) creates no sound through the earpiece during calls but speakerphone and headphones work fine. It started a week ago during a call where the person's voice slowly faded out in the earpiece, but putting it on speakerphone let me hear them. First I assumed it was Tmobile's almost nonexistent indoors reception, but this happened outside too. This happened again in a later call, and now I never get any sound from the earpiece. The phone has never been dropped or anything. It doesn't appear to be stuck in headphone mode, but I tried those fixes anyway and there's nothing stuck in the jack. A soft reset did nothing as well.
A possibly related issue is that, since updating to 8.1, sometimes my phone randomly says I have no SIM card so I have to restart it.
Can I return this device if I have to even if it's on 8.1? Would that void the warranty?
Thanks

Answer:Lumia 925 earpiece not working but speakerphone working during calls

First, yes, your warranty should cover you. http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...et-bottom.html
Second, before you think about taking the phone in for replacement, you should perform a factory reset to be sure that it isn't a software problem. Go to settings | about | reset my phone | yes | yes. Make sure you back up pictures and any other data you need to keep that isn't already synced before you do so.
Odds are that this is a hardware problem, so the reset won't make a difference, but a reset is one of the steps they should make you do before replacing anyway, so you can save yourself some time on the phone by doing it ahead of time.

Anyone else have the problem with their L925? If so is there an easy fix? Can I replace the part myself? I heard somewhere that replacing the Audio flex cable/headphone jack/usb port does the trick? Is this true? Or do I need to replace the earpiece speaker as well?

I can't use my bluetooth headphone and wired earpiece simultaneously. whenever I connect my bluetooth headphone to my laptop, the wired earpiece stops working.I'm having Dell XPS L501X with Realtek High Definition Audio.Is there any way to make them work simultaneously?

Answer:Can't use bluetooth headphone with earpiece!!

I don't think there is because usually when you plug in a headset or turn on a bluetooth headset it disables the speakers, so I suspect that bluetooth essentially does the same to your wired headset - probably nothing that can be done about it unless you happen to find a setting in the realtek control panel that disables the 'feature'."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..."

In most cases (all I've seen) you can only have one default playback device, e.g. PC speaker (and wired headphones) or another device such as your bluetooth or HDMI audio.

So I was listening to music today and suddenly I could hear only with one ear.

Weird thing is that no matter what I did, I still couldn't fix it. Tried with another headphones pair, nothing.

I used my "broken" pair on my Xperia Z3 Compact phone and everything works fine.

I'm on the Insider Preview Build 6281 (fast ring). I'm using a Lenovo Laptop Z50-70 and I'm assuming I'm using the latest Conexant HD drivers are they get updated on every insider preview build.

Has anyone had similar issues?

When I'm using just the speakers they work in stereo.

EDIT: Apparently the issue persists when booting Ubuntu as well so it's hardware related.

So it's a long story filled with terrible verizon service as always, multiple warranty claims and even breaking into my phone. The issue's are these 1) the huge speaker on the back only works when receiving a text or a call, other than that playing music, watching videos etc, no static, completely mute. 2) When i receive a call, I am unable to hear a peep from the earpiece, the only way I can hear someone is hooking up a pair of headphones or putting it on speaking which is annoying beyond belief 3) Bluetooth doesn't work with ANY device, but there is static and it does connect. The only thing i think could of happened is that it detects headphones in ALL the time which i heard is a common problem, some easy fixes are plug/unplug headphones which didn't work, soft reset and putting graphite in the heaphone jack didn't work, I even opened up my phone (which holy crap, is an hour project all in itself) everything seemed to be fine nothing was loose but i'm pretty sure i voided the warranty. Thing is all these problems came about within 24 hours of me getting my on warranty phone which had the same issues, as did the 1 before that. It's not the ened of the world but i've been dealing with this after the 30 day return period so i've basically been stuck in this ****ty circle for over a year, does anyone have any advice for me or would anyone like to take the rest of my two year contract haha.

Answer:my laptop screen got cracked by my earpiece and the ink pour...

A laptop screen can be replaced but it will not be covered by the Standard Repair Warranty since it's an accidental damage. Moreover if the computer is quite old more than 4-5 years then i guess even HP will not be able to repair it even if you pay for it, since it will be considered an obsolete system. Then the only option would be to get it fixed at a local computer store. LCD screens can be ordered online from 3rd party websites.

Hello everyone, I just bought a Lenovo ideadpad Y410p yesterday and everything was going well, all except for one thing. I could not plug in any earpiece(I tried various models) or the headphone that came along as a free gift into my earpiece/headphone jack fully... they would always get stuck midway even when I tried using a little more force or using the connectors that were provided.. Even though they were stuck midway in, the computer still registered the plugging in of an audio device but I could only hear the sounds from a side occasionally or none at all. They all fit into my mic jack though but the sounds all came from the speakers. I am no tech expert so does anyone know how to help me solve this problem? Is it a defect?

1. My computer had some malware issues and some browser redirect issues (probably from before the more recent malware). I ran a full MBAM scan to get rid of Internet Security. I also ensured the .exe and .dll files were no longer present. I also ran a HijackThis scan and did manual removals. So far it looks like Internet Security is gone but I'm still getting redirects, youtube doesn't work (404 not found -ngix), and I can't access/edit/move/do anything to my hosts file. I tried safe boot as well and I still can't edit. I attempted some command line stuff to try to give me access to the file but it doesn't work. Also, read-only and hidden are checked in the properties but it doesn't let me edit those either; I get an access denied error. My lone O1 line from the Hijack log is something with localhost, nothing suspicious. Any idea on how to fix this?

2. Windows Defender doesn't open. It says something like "failed to initialize handle is invalid". It's listed in the Startup tab of msconfig and enabled.

3. Not sure if it's related but my sound has recently stopped working as well. I know it's not the speakers (built into monitors) as I tried brand new ones and they didn't work either. In the mixer, I can see the audio levels fluctuating when watching a youtube video for example, but I don't hear anything. I've toyed around with settings and everything in my audio control panel but still nothing.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Access to hosts file disabled + Windows Defender not working + sound not working

If you use a browser other than Internet Explorer, you could try uninstalling it, deleting all files (so in your profile and program files), and then reinstall.

---

In regards to Windows Defender, it sounds as if your registry is damaged and/or core files for defender. That said, have a look at this: Error message when you try to start Windows Defender on a computer that you recently upgraded to Windows Vista: "Application failed to initialize"

---

Speakers....

A bit more information in regards to your system specs, setup, etc., would be helpful.

Do you have more than one output port on your computer? If so, try plugging your speakers into that and see if it works.

You might need to recheck your sound/audio settings in Windows, just to check it is outputting to the correct device.

If no success, try uninstalling/reinstalling (or just updating) your soundcard driver.

Answer:My Dell inspiron 3542 laptop speakers are not working,but 3.5 mm jack is working fine.

Hello.The problem could be either in the hardware or the software, so you need to test each. Perform the tests below -- it doesn't matter which one you do first.

To test the speakers, perform the Quick Audio Check in the ePSA test. If the speakers fail the test then they have failed or become disconnected. (Click the link for instructions on how to run the test.)

To test the software, switch between the Realtek audio driver and the Windows native driver. [This test assumes that your laptop has the Realtek audio driver. If you get to step 2 and do not see "Realtek High Definition Audio" then go to the Dell support page for your model and download the Realtek driver that Dell provides for the version of Windows that the laptop is running.]
1. Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" and right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked.7.

Hello!

Iím having trouble with my internet connection on my desktop PC, running Windows XP SP3. I connect through a router/modem provided by my ISP, connected to my PC with a LAN cable (no WiFi). It was working fine until a week ago. Now when I boot my PC, the connection indicator shows a ďlimited or no internet connectionĒ; when I load Firefox, it tries to load my home page for a few seconds, then shows a ďserver not foundĒ message.

The router and internet connection should be fine; when I plug my laptop (using Windows 7) into the router, it works normally.

Iím wondering if the problem could be related to some of the network/internet based stuff Iíve been fiddling with the last weeks Ė Iíve installed SugarSync and updated LogMeIn on the desktop PC a little before the internet connection stopped working (but both worked for a time), and I set up a local ad-hoc wireless network with the XP desktop as a host a few times so I could use both PCs online at once.

Hello:
The mouse started to stray and stopped working in the middle of doing something, i.e. eBay, typing word and etc. which is very annoying and first of all, I lose all of the work done due to stopping of the mouse.

However, the mouse started working as if nothing wrong, once I restarted by 'force' restart ..... pushing the button in the middle of the PC. Otherwise, the PC is all fine and working OK.

I did apply Malwarebytes to combat the issue, however the issue does not resolve.

Any help on this would be truoly appreciated.

Thanks,

Answer:Mouse stopped working in the middle of working, i.e. eBay, typing word, etc.

Did you try a different mouse? If you still have the same problem with a new mouse, see if there are any drivers for the mouse from it's manufacturers web site.
Also try a Clean Boot, if that works, then add one startup item at a time till the mouse acts weird again, then you know that is the problematic program.

my audio manager is Realtek HD Audio Manager with ALC 883 something on its version.

When I connect a Vista x64 laptop via a wired connection to my home router, I am able to connect to a VPN with my VPN client, and all VPN resources are available.

When I try to do the same thing with the same laptop, with a wireless connection to my router, I can connect to the VPN with my VPN client, but no VPN resources are available (including internet access).

I have googled a lot... and I'm not sure why this is happening. There was even a microsoft knowledge base article on the subject, for which I downloaded the update, and when I tried to install the update it told me "this update does not apply to your computer." So, I'm guessing that update is not my problem.

Help?
 

Answer:VPN Client Connection (Vista x64) Wired Working, Wireless Not Working (no resources)

What update did you do? What is the KB number?

Also, what kind of VPN client are you using? It would be a good idea to do an "ipconfig /all" on both wired and wireless connections to see what the difference is. If you have an option for "Allow LAN Access" to split tunnel, then you might want to give that a try.

New T530Speakers and Headphones were working fine. I have installed some codecs for VLC (don't think this would affect things) The speakers stopped working, but if you press your ear to the machine, you can hear some tiny clicks / pops when you try to play audio/video (itunes, VLC etc.) Checked Drivers, Sound Mixer, etc. All say the sound is on full.Volume Control Options show Speaker/HP 'realtek High Definition Audio' I tried updating the Sound Drivers. I rolled back the drivers, I unistalled the drivers.Downloaded the drivers from Lenovo, tried Microsoft. Nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

Answer:T530 Speakers have stopped working, headphones still working, tiny small popping / clicking

Not really sure about this, but it sounds like the audio port's mechanical shunt is stuck or broken off.  That is an age old way of turning off speakers when a headphone or external speaker jack is inserted.  The jack pushes a small metal shunt over that opens the internal speakers' circuit.  When the jack is withdrawn, that small shunt is supposed to return to the original position that lets internal speakers function again. If that shunt is stuck or broken, the internal speakers could remain blocked after an external jack is removed. This is not a new problem, but it is not a common problem. http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/No-sound-from-internal-speakers-only-from-h...

Thank you.
cecilia

Answer:5510: Audio from websites not working when external monitor is also hooked up. (But Skype sound still working)

Hello. What might be happening is after you connect to the external display, the audio switches to HDMI audio. To get the audio to emit from the laptop's speakers again, go to the Windows Sounds dialog and make Speakers the default playback device (right click). You might have to do this every time you connect an HDMI cable.

Hi there, Bought new SSD, was not working, upgraded BIOS to newest 1.40 version. SSD working just fine. But now I noticed my keyboard light (fn + page up) is not working. Was fine before. Anyone else having this issue?Another issue: laptop speakers are not working.

Answer:X201 problems after BIOS upgrade (keyboard light not working, laptop speakers not working)

Hello Infro!
 
Welcome to the Support Forums. I can imagine your frustration. I looked at the Driver Matrix for your X201 and it looks like there have been some other updates released recently. I am not sure of your operating system, so you may need to verify they are correct, but all are listed above in the driver matrix.
 
Check to see if you have the current version of these drivers:
 
Hotkey Features Integration 
Lenovo Power Management for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), Vista (32-bit, 64-bit), XP (32-bit, 64-bit)
Also check for Power Manager Patches
Solid State Drive firmware update utility
 
Let me know if you have any questions and if everything is updated.

as of today, my two independent yahoo Email accounts stopped syncing.
I'm receiving error code 80048830, searched the web.
Suggestions were to delete the account and reinstall - no success.
Then to search for specific, potentially corrupy emails that prevent syncing by moving them from inbox to a non-syncing folder. Didn't work.
Since BOTH accounts are affected as of today that doesn't make sense.
Any further suggestions anybody?

Hi, I have a netgear WNDR3400 100nar router, dual band, 2.4ghz and 5ghz. I set up 2 connections. On the 2.4ghz I set up a WEP connection with 64 bit encryption for my wireless repeater (WNR2000). On the 5ghz i set up WPA2 for regular use. Unfortunately my computer does not support 5ghz or atleast i dont think it does. My samsung tv picks up the 5ghz so I connected to that, the macbook pro connects to the 5ghz. The other computer I want on the 2.4 ghz with the repeater. Hardlined via ethernet anything and everything works. For some reason 2.4ghz wont connect wirelessly and does not even give me the option to enter the hex key. just says unable to connect. the 2.4 doesn't work on anything (currently the repeater is offline until I can fix this issue). Infact, ignore the repeater info. I think there is a problem with the distribution of the IP addresses. Could they be overlapping between the 2.4 and the 5? The next item on the network (tv) using 5ghz, occupies sequence 2 under the ip address....whatever the default is it would occupy 192.168.1.2. I have reformatted my computer, uninstalled and reinstalled network drivers, as much as I could do with the computer itself so I'm assuming it is the router. I've disconnected it and reconnected it, reset it, redone the whole network multiple times, renewed the IP address. What is going on? Can anyone help me please.

I have started having an issue over the past week (config/drivers/etc not changed in months) where sound will randomly not be output by HDMI.

System config/specs...
Win7 SP1 all patches, nearly a stock install... only running WMC and XBMC.
Only 3rd part stuff installed are SpeedFan an ATI drivers. (problem occurs if Speedfan is running, or not)
system runs 16 hrs per day, auto shutdown at night.
Dell Optiplex, 6GB RAM + Core2Duo E7400, SSD - no swap file
HDMI is the default, and only sound device enabled (disabled all others in OS)

History... was working perfectly for over 2 years. One Win7 rebuild in that time. Updated video card once and drivers occasionally.
Symptom...
Approx half the time when I start up WMC or XBMC sound output via HDMI does not work. The other half of the time it works fine.
-- to get it working I can open Sound CPL and run "test". Sound will play through HDMI and all is fine usually the rest of the day, but sometimes it has the problem again if I don't use the system for several hours.
-- it never faults (stops working) while in use... only on initial XBMC or WMC startup... again system is always running hours before I start the apps.

Any ideas?

Answer:HDMI Sound randomly not working - test in settings gets it working?

This sounds like a problem with the video driver pack (also includes hdmi audio driver)
I would completely remove what you have now then download and reinstall the latest fresh again.
It could just be a glitch in the matrix so to speak.

I have had a rather large problem over the last couple of days. It started earlier in the week, when one drive stopped working. Not a big problem, I've had drives fail before. 4 disks, so i can handle one less for a little while, i though. Not so though, while still waiting for my new drive, using my computer like usual (with less load on unit D) i suddenly start getting write-errors to D:, and the Intel Matrix Storage Console lists it as Stopped Working instead of Degraded. Nothing changed except for the status of the Volume, all the disks read the same as before, fully functional.

I have very little experience with these sort of matters. This is the first time I've lost a drive where i might lose data as well, and i have pretty much no idea where to go from here. I've tried to replace the faulty disk with another 500GB drive, but the RAID-setup in BIOS just tells me there isn't enough space, and the Console in Windows places the new drive as a Non-RAID drive. I can mark it as reserve, but that seems to be all i can do with it.

I'm not, hopefully, asking for miracles. I have just two things that i really need to retrieve from the Volume, my Firefox sessions (saved in a separate folder at the root of the drive), and my Thunderbird mail, (stored in their standard location, as my whole Windows-profile is on that drive).

Hi,

I have a dual boot of Fedora and Windows, and when I boot into Fedora, my headphones work fine. When I boot into Windows 7 64bit, my headphones don't work. My laptop speakers work fine however, and I tried re-installing drivers. I made sure that my headphones are the default playback device, and I only have one headphone jack.

Other people who had this issue solved it by replacing their audio jack, but for me that is not a problem because the audio jack works fine when I boot into Fedora.

Please help!

Janac

Answer:Laptop speakers working, but headphone jack not working only on Window

Normally, the "Speakers" (PC sound) is set as the Default Playback device and not Headphones. In fact, newer RealTek sound systems do not even show the Headphones when plugged in.

Are you using the correct sound drivers? Not the generic Windows installed High Definition Audio Codec.

What all is listed in the Device Manager, Sound section?

I think its a widespread bug and no one has really figured out a solution for it. For some disabling the AV worked while for some a reboot did. I had that bug today on my W10 Pro machine and the system actually gave a prompt that said something like start menu and notification bar is not responding and the system needs to sign me out to fix it. I rebooted my machine eventually and the bug went away. I am pretty sure MS is aware of it and a fix might already be in the works.

Hello,

I've got a Dell laptop here that isn't functioning properly. I can't get this to work for the life of me! I am currently using this laptop with a different hard drive, it's the install on the SSD that doesn't work. I know that the quick fix would be to simply reload windows, but I don't want the quick fix.

Basically, laptop works with Windows 7 install on a hard drive, no issues. On the SSD, where the ONLY applications loaded are Office 2013 and Firefox (and all the latest updates), the internet does not work (I can ping yahoo.com and get a response, so DNS is fine). The problem persists on IE and Firefox. I have no AV software other than MSE, and the problem persists in Safe Mode w/ networking. The hosts file is clean. The internet worked on the computer just fine when I loaded it, I hadn't used the SSD in a while and when I popped it in, the internet wasn't working. I believe something is getting in the way of port 80, but I can't figure out what. I have disabled all startup applications and all nonwindows services. The computer does not have bonjour. I have cleared history/cookies to no avail. I can't find anything suspicious in the running processes. I can't seem to turn off the windows antimalware process to test that, though.

Any ideas?

I decided to run hijack this and found two BHO's. It's funny that on my new install that I used a handful of times, I have adware, but on this install that's been going for years, I have nothing. Oh well. So I had "Crossrider" and "Coupon Companion". I removed all traces of both, yet still no go. It looks like this managed to install itself on 12/2... which had to be damn close to the date that I bought the SSD, however, I had internet activity as recent as 12/26.

I am not sure if it's related to a malware. so I posted it here. My system is a xp pro, sp3 ,IE7 . I have a wireless networking with total 2 computer attached. My system was running smooth then I don't know why from time to time when clicking on links in IE7 would produce no result. Then I would have no more connection to wireless network and no internet. However the other computer attached to router would still have internet. Then I would try to bring up task manager ctrl+alt+del but it won't show. later I will have freeze but not for the whole computer. when I try to restart computer it won't do it, or very very slow. error message is usually " hsm sink won't end" or something similar, I end manually, still windows won't shutdown. Finally I have to hold power button to shutdown and restarts.
There is not specific time period for this to start to happen, 1-2 or 3 hours. I don't know what triggers it. I thought maybe IE7 is the problem so I started using google Chrome browser. I still have this happening.
I have the DDs text here, and the other 2 logs attached. I disabled panda antivirus before starting this process.

Desktop Icons Not Working, Restart Works, Then Stop Working Again.

I use Internet Explorer and am on the computer many hours a day. I have a Dell Inspiron 620 with Windows 7 Pro 64.

This problem started a few weeks ago. The desktop icons stop working but start working again after a RESTART. I've tried to bypass the desktop by using START to access programs. This has limited success. I tried putting a desktop folder with my favorite websites on the START menu but that causes the entire screen to stop working when the icon problem occurs. I also tried putting DESKTOP on the TASKBAR. That creates the same problem as with START. The whole screen stops working and I must force a restart by shutting off the computer by pushing the COMPUTER ON button. Once it restarts, I run the computer until the malfunction occurs. Once I removed the DESKTOP from the TASKBAR, the problem only effects the desktop as before.

Do you have any ideas?

Answer:Desktop Icons Not Working, RESTART Works, Then Stop Working Again.

I have a linksys model wrt54gl v1.1 and I am using Windows Vista 32bit Home Edition. I have a pc connected to the router directly through an ethernet plus a laptop, 2 iphones and a blackberry that get wireless internet from it. 2 days ago wireless stopped working. The internet on the pc connected to the router by ethernet is still working and the power, WLAN, ethernet, and internet lights are all lit green. The internet and ethernet lights flash when data is being transferred but the the WLAN light is not flashing. I have restored the router to factory default but it is still not working. The phones and laptop are not detecting any wireless network present. Hope you can help.

Answer:Internet working on PC connected to router by ethernet but wireless not working

I have restored the router to factory default but it is still not working.Click to expand...

The only other thing to try is to unplug the router for a few hours. You could also try another factory reset.

So I just got my y50-70 a week ago. Every once in a while the speakers stop working, but the subwoofer still works. It goes away when I put the machine to sleep. Additionally, sometimes when I plug in headphones no sound comes out, this also goes away when I close and open the laptop.

Answer:Ideapad Y50 Speakers stop working, subwoofer continues working

Hi Simonxliu,
 
Welcome to Lenovo forums
 
As I understood that you are facing the issue with the speakers.
 
As you have mentioned the sub-woofer is working I would suggest you update the chipset driver and also the audio driver this might resolve the issue.
 
Hope this helps! Do post us back for further queries.
 
Best regards,    
 
Ashwin.S

I am unable to use the mic in my headphones with the laptop at the moment. With the headphones plugged in the 9360 just defaults to the inbuilt mic which is terrible.
Ever since a driver update, (I can't remember which), the maxxaudio popup that allows you to choose your mic input stopped appearing and the audio sounds very flat.
I need assistance in this situation as it's dells responsibility with regards to MaxxAudio, as it seems I have no other choice of audio driver.

So the volume up and down buttons, mute work just fine, onscreen display shows up, works fine.  However Fn+F4 (sleep), Fn+F5 (radios), Fn+F6 (camera mic), Fn+Home (brightness up), Fn+End (brightness down) dont work at all.  However other ones work like I mentioned, Fn+PgUp (LED light) works fine.  So I know Fn key works.  But the Hotkey software dont seem to work entirely. However I found out by going to the "C:\Program Files\Lenovo\HOTKEY" directory and launching the TpFnF5.exe I can get it to launch the onscreen display for Radios and be able to turn on/off the bluetooth.  But still dont understand why the direct pressing of Fn+F5 and other keys mentioned above dont work. What is wrong?  The Hotkey 3.40.0000 was reinstalled at least 5 different times.  Im running Windows 7 Enterprise (Professional basically) x64 with SP1.  HelpDixit

Answer:T420 hotkey for brightness and bluetooth not working (partially working)

Try uninstalling the Lenovo System Interface driver and reinstalling it. Also make sure you're on the latest Power Management driver (v1.62).

HTTP traffic in IE 7 stops working about five minutes after booting up. This started after the latest Windows Update.

HTTPS and email always works .

The only solution is to reboot the computer. After about five minutes, HTTP stops working again.

I have 2 GB MB of RAM, Windows XP Pro, service pack 3. This happens even when the browser is the only program running.

I have updated and run Ad Aware and Spybot.

I am up to date with AVG and ran a complete system scan. Nothing found.

One day I decided to clean out my computer, so i got out the air compressor and blew the dust out. Most would obviously dissmiss my problem as a blown chip due to static shock but somehow I don't think it is. When I start the computer up it comes up with a screen with lots of multi-coloured squares. Some of the little squares flash and some do not. I think it could be like an error code, as to the same affect as a d-bracket.

My graphics card is:
Ti4800SE
WinFast A280TD
My ViVo edition

Remove the card from Device Manager. Turn off. Remove the graphics card physically and clean the contacts with an eraser, making sure you get rid of bits off the contacts. Refit & restart. May have some effect.

Good day,
Thanks for reading.
 
I recently installed Win 8 (not upgrade) on my tablet. One of the downsides has been that I now cannot get my built-in 3G to work as the FnF5 button does not bring up the expected dialogue.
 
Please can you help me.
 
Regards
George
 
 
Moderator comment: Subject edited for clarification.

Answer:X220 tablet - post Windows 8 - FnF5 not working so 3G not working

Hey George,
 
Are you receiving dialogue at all? If so, what is coming up? Additionally, are other FN keys working as intended?
 
With your recent upgrade to Windows 8 have you upgraded everything that you could prior to the upgrade, and upgraded what Windows 8 drivers are available? I have seen success with updating the power manager driver, as well as the Hotkey Features Integration Driver. The Hotkey driver has up to Windows 7 Driver, it may possibly help your issue, but make sure you back up, and have the capability to rollback to the previous driver. Good luck and please keep me posted on your progress.
 
Thank You.

    I bought a 3000 N100 model laptop directly from Lenovo's website about 2 years ago. I have had absolutly no hardware problems with the macine until the other morning when it would not turn on at all. I had been using it the night before, closed the lid, and when i came back to it less than 24 hours later it would not respond to any attempts to turn it on. No combination of AC adapter power / battery power / battery removed seemed to make a difference. There are no lights, fans, or beeps when applying power or pushing the On button.    I work with a data recovery business and am familiar with component level repairs. I used my multi-meter to make sure there was proper voltage coming to the power jack. Once I confirmed proper voltage I dissassemled the laptop and traced the lines all the way back up to the power button on the front of the machine. There is power all the way to the On button and the voltage drops as expected when the button is pressed, but there is still absolutly ZERO reaction in the form of lights, fan/hdd noise or system beeps. I might as well be plugging in a plank of wood.    Has anyone else had this issue and been able to correct it? I get the feeling that I will be recomended to get a new motherboard. I would prefer to replace the failed components on my own soldering bench if possible. A voltage regulator, diode, or capacitor are the most likely culprits. Thanks in advance for any helpful replies to this p... Read more

I am not sure exactly at what point it happened but I recently found that the touch screen on my Elite X2 1011 was not working. The pen still functions normally. When checking the pen and touch settings I can only configure the pen settings and only "Pen support" is listed in view pen and touch settings. The touch screen used to work in both the original Windows 8.1 and then also after upgrading to Windows 10. There have been no error messages and the event logs do not seem to indicate any problems; it is as though the machine has just forgotten it is a touch screen. I have tried reinstalling drivers, reinstalling both Windows 10, and going back to Windows 8.1 to no avail. I really loved this little device but ease of use is cut rather drastically without the touch functionality. Has anyone else had a problem like this and have a solution? Any help at all is greatly appreciated.

- Made Firefox and Safari stop working/connecting to the internet
- Allowed Internet Explorer to remain functioning
- Made MediaDirect stop working completely

Did I screw something up somehow? And is this reversable?

So one day I was using a laptop wirelessly when the internet just suddenly turned off. I checked my modem and it was working fine but when I checked my router, the lights were on but not blinking. it was just a steady light. when I checked for a wireless network the name of the network I usually use didnt show up.

I tried unplugging everything and plugging everything back in again and I tried pressing the reset button on the back of the router. Can anyone help?

Thanks so much

P.S. my router is a linksys WRT300N Wireless-N Broadband router
 

Answer:Wireless router suddenly stopped working (Lights still working though)

what devices do you have connected the router anything else wireless
make and model of the pc

does the PC work if you connect to the router by a cable ?
if not
try connecting directly to the modem and see if that works OK

we need to see some details, which will mean you need to copy to a working PC
------------------------------------------------------------------------
{run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector} Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php
Direct link to the program is here http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifi_download_redirect.php
Then run and install the program
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

Run the program

post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.

Hi, I've ran into some problems after installing my friend's pirated Adobe software on my new desktop, resulting in my internet browser (Firefox & Internet Explorer) to work but NEVER load ANY site.

Specifically, the browsers will work again when I restart my desktop. However, as time progresses, the number of sites these browsers can access decreases significantly. For example, though in first 10 min it will load home page and say newgrounds.com, after 10 min, only loads home page, another 5 min, loads nothing. The browsers display the fact that they're trying to connect to the website, forever. I also noticed that if the certain applications such as windows media, utorrent and other adobe softwares are turned on. It takes less time for the browsers to stop working. Most often, this is an immediate effect. If you're wonder how I'm able to post this message, it's with the help of my laptop, currently free of infections. I'm positive the internet connection is working since my laptop uses the same connection. The network is set by one modem connected to one router connected to one switch which then connects to my laptop and desktop. While my laptop loads fine, my desktop doesn't.

Less often than the browser occurance are other problems such as rundll stopped working, explorer.exe not working, mouse buttons misbehaving, keyboards typing funny things.

So recently the sound on my desktop and my laptop has stopped working. For seemingly no reason. I really don't understand it.

I first noticed it with my desktop. The sound just randomly stopped working. But not...entirely. It's really strange and complicated what's been happening, so bare with me while I try to explain it as best I can.

PC:
First time sound stopped working on PC. Restarted computer, sound came back, no issues.

Second time I woke up to find VLC frozen. Sound wasn't working. I restarted VLC. No sound. Found out that there was no sound on the computer at all. When I'd try to increase the volume on VLC, it would only change within an interval of ten percent. So it was at 50 percent initially. Would not let me go below 50%, but not above 10%. Sound didn't work anyway. Restarted, sound returned VLC working fine.

Third time I was playing Dragon Age: Inquisition. Sound worked fine, using my headset (Turtle Beach). Went to speakers to lay down and watch some shows on VLC. No sound on speakers. Switched to Turtle Beach again, sound returned. Restarted VLC, now suddenly no sound on VLC OR speakers. Had to restart computer, no issues after restart.

Laptop:
First time sound stopped working, used the "disable audio and reenable audio driver," didn't solve anything. Restarted, sound came back. Sound stopped working again same day, restarted, sound came back.

The next time I restarted the audio driver (Realtek) and then I shut down Explorer and then restar... Read more

Answer:Sound on Laptop and Desktop Randomly Stops Working and Working

Update: I'm not at home to test my PC, but I think I discovered the issue. It seems to possibly be a glitch or something with flash player.

After watching an episode of Daily Show on Hulu, I went back to Tumblr and saw that a video didn't have sound, and then all sound on my computer was suddenly gone. I then tried something out, and shut down flashplayer. That temporarily brought sound back.

But it quickly went away.

Then I shut down Firefox and flash player entirely, and sound comes back even when Flash Player comes up.

What could cause this?

it only does this sometimes which is why it's so annoying :/ So, I boot up & start using my laptop, trackpoint scroll (middle button) is working fine but then it just stops working after 5mins or 1/2hr it hasn't actually done this in over a month but today it did it & a reboot did not fix it   I've had 2 Lenovo Tablet PCs before this one & none of them ever did this   

Answer:Trackpoint Scroll stops working after it has been working after bootup, intermitant

I know this is old post but...This sounds like a driver issue or a hardware issue. First verify your type of trackpad than download and reinstall the trackpoint software from Lenovo from here Drivers see if that helps. If this does not help this might be a hardware wear issue this laptops are 6 years old. I have one myself but I use Linux on mine.

Hi,
Asus MoBo P7P55D LE, I tried to update my drivers using a program that detects new drivers. Unfortunately when it had finished, I did not have any sound. Speakers plug into the rear panel and headphone into the front panel. Been into the device manger and all devices are working correctly. Went to the Asus site to download the via/nvidia drivers but when they downloaded, I used the setup but windows says it cannot find the drivers, also used the Mobo disk and again windows says cannot find drivers, so at a loss. I somehow managed to get the front headphone jack working but has a permanent hiss on it. Any suggestions would be appreciated
Thanks and Regards
Bob

Answer:Unable to get speaker working although device manager says working ok

First off NEVER use one of the sites that scans your system to see if you need driver updates. There too many posts of people having problems after using one of those sites.

You can Rollback the drivers that were installed. Go to the Device Manager, display each of the devices (one at a time) and in the properties for the device. click on Driver Tab and then click Rollback Driver. This should get you back to where you were before you did whatever update.
