(the third day of using) I find the right side speaker cracking voice

Question: (the third day of using) I find the right side speaker cracking voice

Recieved my customized X1 Carbon on Sept 7.Yesterday, I found the speaker on the right side hissing and cracking voice when watching video, especially on the mid and high range, like pianolude and people's voice, even I only played on 10~20 system voice volume.What should I do? Should I exchange the computer, or just have it repaired? Will I take another 10 more days to get my new laptop?BTW, the fan always comes to work like spining one or two seconds in high speed and then spining with lower speed and noises. Is this situation normal?

Are you using a metal table? try using a wooden table. check the speaker jack connection and look for any exposed cuts on the speaker wires. use duct tape to seal it.

the output in left and right speakers in my Z580 isn't equal. I suspect it's made on purpose, so that the sound will be in stereo and "deep" etc., but the left speaker tends to crack at very low and very high frequencies. is there any solution for it?

Hi,

the sound coming out of my speaker set (creative I-trigue 3330) is cracking. Now, I have connected my speaker set to my mp3-player and everything works just fine. When I connect my headphone to the pc, I again experience bad sound.
Conclusion: my speaker set is fine, my pc isn't.

Does anyone know what can be the cause of this issue?

Thanks for your time

Answer:cracking sound ( not due to speaker set )

Sounds like a driver issue to me.

Go to this website and place your motherboard model in the search box. Once you choose your OS in the popup you'll be able to download your audio drivers.

Hi,  I own a HP Envy 34.  Left speaker is cracking for a couple of days now.  When I start the computer, it's kind of ok, and the say I watch a video or listen music. From that time onwards, everytime the volume goes off (like between two songs for instance), the left speaker is cracking. When the volume goes up again, the issue stops. But that's really annoying...Thanks for helping me!

Answer:Ideapad 305 - Cracking sound in speaker

Hi HeartTea,     
         
Welcome to the Forums  
 
As per the query we understood that you are looking for audio in your Lenovo 305-15IBY laptop.
 
As you have mentioned about the crackling sound, does this issue occurs only when playing video or does this issue occurs while only playing songs?
 
Also connect an external earphone and check if the issue persist.
 
Let us know the result.
 
Best regards,

Hi All, I have a Thinkpad Yoga since about 2 Weeks. I think its a great laptop (with just 1-2 weak points)However since some hours I get just a little crack sound out of the speakers. It just occured while normal working and i realized it when i was trying to Skype. I tried to uninstal the drivers and installed new ones but it still doesnt work. With my experience it sounds like a hardware damage. But maybe somebody has experienced the same and a solution?  Cheers, Pascal 

Answer:Thinkpad Yoga Speaker cracking/dont work

I just figured out... It's working fine via Headjack and sometimes I get a sound (sounds absolutely normal) for about 1-2 seconds - for example after restart or just sometimes when I pull the headjack out - but then the same issue...

Hi all, I just received my new X1 Carbon 2015. This is the first time I purchase a Lenovo Device after years with Dell. Unfortunately, the sound quality is horrible, but I am not sure if this is by design of if the laptop is faulty.. The sound is very bad when it is coming from the speakers, especially the left speaker: the sound is cracking and saturating. This is especially true when the Dolby is on, and you clearly hear the problem with standard Windows event sounds (for example the sound you can hear when you adjust the volume with the slide on the sound icon next to the clock), or any warning sound.No problem if I use an headset. Am I alone with that issue? Even if the device looks great, I have to say that I am overall disappointed by the laptop quality, especially regarding the cost of that device (this is the Core i7 with QHD touchscreen and 512GB PciE SSD):- When I received it last week, the left button from the trackpad was stuck (impossible to use). I had to gently scratch the side of the trackpad button to release the button. Probably some remains of the manufacturing blocking the button.- Then I noticed that sound issue.- And finally yesterday, I discovered a spot on the bottom right of the screen. Not a dead pixel, but a clear spot behind the pixels, 1 square millimeter,  reflecting the backlight. Thanks Pierre.  

Answer:X1 Carbon 2015 : Cracking sound speaker, especially with Dolby on (and other issues)

I have the exact same problem with the speakers, particularly the left one. It sounds totally distorted, cracking, and tinny when playing almost anything. As the OP pointed out, it's even worse with Dolby enabled. I will be calling customer support and/or service about this. I don't have any of the other problems the OP is experiencing. Except for the horrible, obviously broken sound quality - my new X1 Carbon 2015 has been a pretty good experience.

After i completely dignosed the issue it seems to me that there are problems in BIOS, Drivers and thermal management as when I start playing a game (GTA 5, Battlefiels 1) i runs smooth for 5 minutes but after that i starts lagging and freezing. I have also run some benchmarks but results are similarly as there is the issue of cpu thermal throttling. And audio distortion is due to unstable and poor compatibility drives. In dell forms i read people saying that all this is caused due power management issues which i have also noticed as when CPU is idle is consumes around 20 watt at 50°C but when put under load it once reaches 50 watt of peak usage at 100°C but with in few seconds it thermal throttles and used only 15 watt at 80°C which is even less than idle speed which causes many problems and freezing also all with in few minutes of gaming or proper use. Many uses are facing same problems as i have read on reddit and dell community form but not all the systems are affected as the review units that some YouTube channels and Websites like Laptop Mag reviewed did not exibit such problems or otherwise the reviews are fake. I don't know why dell is not solving the issues and sending me the same problematic Laptop again for the third time.

Could that have been the problem or something else.

Please help me friend please.

Hi there, ive got a very annoying problem concerning sound. No matter what i do i just cant get the right speaker to work, the left works fine. The speakers plug into the lime green line out plug at the back of my machine, i also like to use headphones- in which i get the same problem. Driver-wise everything seems to be fine (no conflicts etc).

What i have tried-
*speakers in other equipment (work fine)
*installing every new driver i could find (from via and realtek)
*reinstalling windows
*checking BIOS audio settings
*checking cables etc

Points of interest-
*the speakers used to work fine in stereo before i installed a new graphics card, the installation of the card was perfect (ie i cant see the audio hardware being damaged because of this)
*a switch setting the speakers to MONO enables both speakers to work (its just not the same as stereo though is it!)

cheers in advance for any help! i dont mind a pc-related riddle here and there but this one is proving painful.

I recently purchased a PDP Afterglow wired headset, plugged in with USB, since my local Wal-Mart had nothing cheaper that was PC-compatible that wasn't a phone headset.

I first noticed this problem in Aliens: Colonial Marines, and then again playing Dead Space 3, when I turned my character certain directions, I suddenly couldn't hear a word anyone in the game was saying. I was fooling around today and realized that while music and in-game music will play fine from both speakers of the headset, the 'Test' sounds that Windows uses, and in-game voice acting go completely dead when I turn so that they have to play from the left side of the headset. Those types of sound will not play from the left side at all.

Any ideas here on how to fix this? It is REALLY irritating and it's driving me crazy.
 

Answer:Solved: Headset won't play in-game voice acting on one side.

I have the stock powered speakers that come with my EMachines T2958 on Windows XP. One speaker (the one that is led to and not the one with the power/volume) is not working. Well I thought it was wiring for sure, because under my volume settings the pan is definitely centered. But, I plugged the 1/8" speaker wire to my mp3 player and perfect stereo from both. So this is definitely in the CPU right(I would doubt the input jack though)? If settings are right, then what could I try to seek this out. Thanks, this place is great!

The current driver is 5.10.0.5440 which is also the latest one available for quite some time on Emachines' site. Googling around I seen the latest driver is actually 5.10.0.6290, but I also read that you should always get the driver from your motherboards' site. Is this the rule I should follow, or go ahead and try the newer driver? Don't know if the driver would be causing this anyway however, as it always worked fine before.

Hello.I just got my Y510. The left side speaker is not working properly.I tried all settings combinations possible: with Dolby ON and OFF, Quad and Stereo, used the test feature of windows and the one of RealTek.When running the Realtek test with Dolby OFF and sterero mode:Balance all to the right: Left does not sound. Right speaker sounds strong and OK.Balance all to the left: Left sounds weak and somewhat in the middle and right is off. When running the Windows test in Quad mode:The side right, the left rear (Laptop's front left) and right rear (Laptop's front right) sound OK.But the left side speaker is still weak and the sound seems to come from the front right corner of the laptop. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you, Bruno.

Answer:Left side speaker not working

BrunoB, this is from an earlier post by myself in this forum:  Just curious as to whether this "sound image issue" is being addressed by the engineers yet. As I stated in an earlier post in this thread, the speakers are actually working, it's apparently the volume level and/or frequency range of the sub that is causing the sound to be heard coming from the right only. My Y510 was with the Lenovo depot in Texas for 3 weeks only to be told that there is nothing wrong but they did agree that the sound "appears' to be unbalanced to the right. Supposedly the engineers were going to work on the issue. Here is a quote that was on the paper that was sent back to me with my notebook: '"Left and right speaker output is good. Placement and volume level of the subwoofer is creating an image issue which cannot be resolved at this time." This quote is from Repair Technician Steve. Hope this answers questions out there. Unfortunately it doesn't help the unbalanced sound issue.'Message Edited by mikepasta on 05-17-2008 12:35 PMMessage Edited by mikepasta on 05-17-2008 12:37 PM

Hi,I'm running a NEC Versa S3200 laptop purchased just 3 months ago, running Windows XP. Everything was fine until a few days ago I noticed that my laptop's speaker slot is kind of loose, and if I insert the headset's port, every little movement causes the port to loosen up a bit and I have to fix it to hear properly.The next day or so suddenly all voices became very very distorted. If I play at very low volume I can hear correctly, but as the volume goes up the voice gets REALLY distorted and crappy.I've tried both the headset and some earplugs, this happens on both of them. If I don't use anything and try the laptop's built in speakers, no voice comes out.I've tried doing system restore and uninstalling/re-installing the audio drivers but they didn't fix it. If I change the 'Karoeko' setting to 0 its just like hearing on a very low volume, which works mostly ok except I often can't make out what is being said.To top it off I've lost my laptop's serial number, the sticker is nowhere to be found on the back of the laptop so I can't use the warranty.  If anyone can assist with this it'll be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Ive just recently switched from vista64 to windows 7 64.

The thing is that im using logitech X-540 5.1 speakers but realtek HD is detecting my "rear" speakers as "side" speakers when I select the 5.1 option. Same thing happened in vista too.

The only way round this to select the 7.1 option and disable the "side" speakers and hence I can use "rear". The sound from the "side" speakers then comes from the ones in the front in the testing.

Now the problem is that when I play games/movies in 5.1 it probably detects my system as a 7.1 and some sound will be missing.

So how can I use the 5.1 option and keep my surround speakers as "rear" and not "side".

Thanks in advance,

P.S. Buying a new soundcard isnt an option for me.

Answer:Realtek HD detecting rear speaker as side (5.1)

A true 5.1 speaker system consists of subwoofer, front right and left, and surround right and left (what you may be referring to as "side"). There are no "rear" speakers in a 5.1 system.

A 7.1 system adds rear right and left.

Your Realtek HD is configuring your 5.1 speaker system correctly.

See the Dolby Home Theater Speaker Guide for correct placement of your speakers.

I got a T410 recently and have been pretty happy with it. The problem is, my normal earphone used to work initially, had no trouble getting sound in both left and right earphone speakers. Then, slowly i started getting having trouble getting sound in my left ear piece. I had to twist and turn the connecter and it would work occasionally and it wouldn't work most of the time. I've tested with couple of ear phones that work with other devies but when I connect it with this, I get sound in my right earpiece only. The inbuilt speakers work fine. How do I solve this issue?

Answer:T410 audio port gives output to only one side of the speaker

Hi and welcome to the forum!I've 3 iPod headphones, 2 of them are compatible pieces but the 3rd is genuine Apple's. The compatible headphones while connected to my T400 have the same issue that you're describing, sound only comes from one of their ear pieces and I too have to twist and turn them in a certain position for sound to come out from both ends. On the other hand, the genuine Apple headphones works out of the box, however all these 3 headphones work fine with my iPod. My conclusion is that only connect good quality headphones with the thinkpad.However you problem could be different, I suggest looking at this Knowledge Base article and thread, perhaps what you need is just an adapter to solve this:-http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/Audio-combo-jack-vs-headphone-earphone-with...http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/T510-combo-mic-audio-port-usage/m-p/217613Hope this helps.

Last week, I purchased a Dell Precision 5510 with Windows 7 and the audio was working fine, but on Saturday night I was watching a video on Netflix when the right-side speaker started to crackle. I followed the instructions on a number of tutorials including reinstalling the RealTek audio drivers and switching to the windows default drivers, but none of these things have gotten rid of the crackling.
Of note, the crackling only starts when the audio is raised somewhere around the 50% capacity mark or beyond, but it is a constant and persistent annoyance at that point.  I am of the belief that this is a hardware issue at this point, but any insight others could provide before I contact Dell Support would be appreciated.

Answer:Dell Precision 5510 Crackling Sound from Right-side Speaker

Hi waxenwings,Thanks for posting.Does this exist using external speakers or just the internal ones?  Have you tried headphones?In some cases, this may be caused by a conflict with SRS audio enhancement package and Adobe Flash. This has been escalated.Possible solutions include uninstall the SRS Audio package from Add\Remove Programs-Programs and Features. Reboot and test the system. Update Adobe Flash. Reinstall the SRS Audio package from Drivers and Downloads from support.dell.com and test again.If none of that's working, then contact Tech Support for additional troubleshooting.

I have recorded audio recently and I need it for an assignment, but the files are nowhere to be found. I've followed several tutorials but they were all for SOUND recorder, while windows 10 has voice recorder. When I follow the steps for windows 8, I find old audio records from back when I had windows 8. Please help, I really need them!

Answer:How can I find my voice recorded files on windows 10 laptop?

Here is the default path I get: C:\Users\<user name>\Documents\Sound recordings

Hi i am Jo

would need help in finding the length of the third side of a triangle in excel

I have three points number: AB- 235 BC- 156 need to find length AC - it's not a right angle triangle,
 

Answer:Find length of side of triangle in Excel

Welcome to the forums Jo.

Having the length of two sides of a triangle isn't enough to calculate the length of the 3rd side, for a non right-angle triangle. You'll also need to know one of the angles.

Hi,Please provide the exact model of your PC so that we can look and see if we can find any missing drivers which will enable the USB ports on right side.If you look at service manual you can see that the ports on the right side are actually a seperate board attached via ribbon cable to the motherboard.

A couple of days ago, I decided to move my tower from my desk to the floor. Everything was working beautifully up until then. I opened it up and removed some dust. After putting it back together, the monitor wouldn't register anything. I left it for a day, came back, and the monitor magically worked again. The wifi card stopped working, but importantly, the sound was working. After leaving it for a night, I came back, reseated the wifi card, and magically, the card worked again. But now, the sound won't work! It's been several days, and this is the situation:

* The sound is not muted. When I press the speaker icon in the tray, the green volume bar moves up and down, as though sound is playing

* If I troubleshoot the 'playing audio', it says that no peripherals are plugged in. I found that if I went into Realtek HD Audio Manager and disabled 'front panel jack detection' in the connection settings, the computer suddenly apparently realises that I do have speakers connected, and when I troubleshoot audio again, it doesn't find any errors. I have to do this every time I restart, but the sound still doesn't work.

* I've downloaded and reinstalled the Realtek HD Codecs twice.

* In Device Manager, it recognises the integrated sound card:


(the PCI Simple Communications Controller device is Intel Management Engine Interface)
* I've disabled and enabled the devices many times, but no dice.

* I've reinstalled the chipset drivers from the motherboard manufacturer

* I've gon... Read more

Answer:No sound from speaker/headphones, can't find any errors.

I see you have both High Definition Audio Device and RealTek listed in the Sound Video and Game Controllers. In most cases the High Definition Audio Device is a Windows installed generic sound driver. Since you have RealTek, you do not need this and it can conflict. Uninstall the HD Audio Device (in the Device Manager), restart the PC and see what happens.

Also, double check the motherboard connection for the front panel audio. Although you have "unplugged and re-plugged" wires, check it again. The other possibility with the front panel. Try disconnecting the front panel headset/mic connection at the motherboard and see what happens (not disable it in the RealTek HD Manager).

Basically, whenever someone sends me a voice clip, I can hear the sound perfectly. No added noises, only what the person inputs themselves.

However, when speaking directly with someone (voice chat, video chat), the sound, their voices, everything I hear from them is very static-y and buzzy.
What makes me even more frustrated is that this problem isn't present in a Skype chat... Skype chats work perfectly, and they're just the same as MSN voice chats...

This modem is the HIRO Model H50113, which worked well in Windows Vista and Windows7, but as soon as I upgraded to Windows 10, the new operating system deleted the driver that makes my voice capabilities work on the modem, so it FAILS in voice functions. It is not possible to add that driver back, since the OS kills it like a virus. I noticed the driver I'd used is no longer in the drivers list, and I've heard from HIRO that this is happening MORE and MORE, for those whose Windows 10 version is 1511 IOS Build 1058635.

I am trying to format c: on my dell pentium III desktop. I am using Windows2000Pro. I tried accessing the comand prompt through MSDOS, but it will not let me format there. I tried F8 at startup, but my only choice is to access the command prompt through safe mode, you can't format c: in safe mode. I tried changing my bios to read the cd first and then I tried putting in the Windows 2000 cd and started a new install, I never got an option to format. When I had windows98 I could format a disk and copy the system files at the same time and reboot using that disk. Then I could enter the real DOS. Windows 2000 does not give you the option to copy system files when you format a disk? I'm out of options. If anybody has a suggestion, I would be glad to try it. I bought my computer, paid for ALL my software, and yet me, the owner, is not allowed to format c:??? Thanks in advance for any help.

When it restarted, windows advised me to perform a system file check. So I left my computer for a bit, and when I came back it was already at the logon screen. However, when I logged on and started firefox, first thing I noticed was that all my bookmarks and some extensions had been wiped.
I then tried to start Microsoft Word but I received the following error:

I receive that error for most of my other programs.

G'day everyone - I suspect this issue will be a tough one to get help with!

I've attached a screen-capture of a Microsoft Office Excel 2007 spreadsheet I'm working on at the moment. As you will be able to see on the screen-capture, I've marked the areas of interest and will explain here...

When I enter a name in this column (marked as '1'), I want the spreadsheet to check another column (marked as '2') to see if there is a match. If there is a match, I then want the spreadsheet to check the column marked as '3', and subtract that amount from the column marked as '4'. If there is no match between the column marked as '1' and the column marked as '2', I don't want anything to happen.

I hope that made sense, and if anyone can help me with a solution here, I would greatly appreciate it.

Answer:Error message: "application cannot be opened as side by side configuration is incorrect"

Hi

To be honest I never meet such problem with the operating system but firstly I would recommend trying to repair the OS.

Boot up the notebook and press F8. Then choose option called Repair the Computer.
Now you will see a some options. Here I would recommend choosing the first option called: Startup Repair.
This option automatically fixes problems that are preventing Windows from starting.
But I?m not quite sure if this is good enough to fix your issue with the system.

If this does not help I would recommend reinstalling this Microsoft Works package.

I bought a Dell Inspiron 5545. From the first day I lifted the screen of the laptop, there was a click from the right side where the hinge of the screen meets the base of the laptop. I just assumed this was something internally that kept the screen in the open position because there are so many other items click when you open them. However, over the past few weeks a gap started to appear that has become increasingly larger between what appears to be the bottom of the case and the top in that same place where the right hinge is.
C'mon Dell.  It is a design flaw and should be fixed as such.

With the introduction of the new and clever 'Snap' functions, two basic functions for organising the desktop seem to have been lost. I and others have tried asking the MS Community, but are struggling to find the vocabulary needed to ask the question, and are getting only non-answers.
So, I will try here..Questions:Noting that these very basic features have been available in all previous versions and editions of MS Windows:
1. How do I now, in W10, get two desktop app windows (DAWs) to share the desktop equally? This used to be achieved by having two DAWs active, and then selecting 'Show windows side by side'. Now, in W10, selecting 'side by side' results only in a cramped tiling of active windows.
2. How do I now, in W10, get DAWs to 'remember' their last setting of size and position, such that re-opened DAWs will open with the same size and position that they had when last closed?
3. Could someone give a direct answer to these two questions, providing the solutions as steps to be taken in W10 - or, will someone confirm that these features are no longer available, in W10?

Answer:Updated: W10 App Windows: 'Side by Side', & Setting Default Size/Position..

If you drag App1's title bar all the way to the left side of the screen, it'll "snap" to the left. The same for App2; drag the title bar all the way to the right side of the screen for it to "snap" to the right. (This can also be done using the keyboard short cut "Win + left/right arrow")
The old function for right clicking on the task bar and selecting "cascade windows, show side by side, etc" is still there, but now it allows for more open windows, and depends on your screen size.
As far as I can tell, open windows do remember their last position.

It runs, but is held together with aa 1.5" black paper clamp and connects to the home network via a USB WiFi dongle from Wal-Mart..

I tried restarting the computer but there was so much cpu usage that I couldn't even type. So after 10 minutes or so, I just pulled the plug.

First post...

I am coming to you as a last resort. I built my own PC and installed Vista Ultimate 64 bit OEM edition. Has been working fine for ~2 years.
Now every time I attempt to open a program I get the error "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail".

The only progam that is barely working is IE 64 bit edition. I cannot download or run any files.

Microsoft wants 59$ to speak to a technical support representative(What a joke, multibillion dollar company wants extra $ for tech support??...).

Doing a ton of research I have tried various things to remedy this with no avail. System restore did not work. Doing a sfc /scannow in command prompt does not work, it does not even run. Wasted 3 hours of my life doing a thorough checkdisk as well.

The error in the event log is as follows...
Error in manifest or policy file "C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\x86_microsoft.windows.c..-controls.resources_6595b64144ccf1df_6.0.6001.18000_en-us_72e6f33f34dfabb9.manifest" on line 18. Invalid Xml syntax.

So the problem has to do with this manifest file? I really am clueless as to my next move. I can not download and run anything at all.... Can I do a Vista repair installation with my OEM version?

Was this computer upgraded from Vista to Windows 7? If so that may be the cause. You can try doing a Repair Install of Windows 7 to see if that corrects the problem.

So, I had the same problem as above. I had developed a dll using Qt that worked fine on my machine but would not register on another. The familiar "This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect..." appears when I ran the depencency walker on the dll.

So this was the solution that worked for me, which may help some others see what's going wrong here:

Within my dll the manifest emedded read:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
<dependency>
<dependentAssembly>
<assemblyIdentity type="win32" name="Microsoft.VC80.DebugCRT" version="8.0.50608.0" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b"></assemblyIdentity>
</dependentAssembly>
</dependency>
</assembly>

It seemed that the assembly definition was not found upon my client computer. So then, from within my original computer's 'Windows\WinSxS' directory, I copied the 'x86_Microsoft.VC80.DebugCRT_1f...' directory and it's associated files within the 'Policies' and 'Manifests' directories onto the client computer. Once copied, the dll registrered fine.

Hope this helps...

Hi,
I recently bought my Dell XPS 9560. My dell xps screen appears cooler on the left side and slightly warmer on the right side. It is not noticeable in any color but when I visit websites with a white background like google, I can notice that the right side is slightly warmer (yellowish) which is distracting. Any idea on how should I proceed with the issue?
Thanks

Answer:Dell XPS 9560 Screen - left side cooler and right side warmer

If "recently" is less than 21 days from shipment and from Dell directly, the best option is to contact customer support and have the system replaced.
If it's more than 21 days from shipment, the warranty will cover the display replacement, which is the only solution -- though if the system is new enough, you're better off having it replaced than repaired.

Model:  HP Pavilion m6 Notebook PC 15".   Laptop used minimally and still in beautiful shape other than these noted issues:  Left hinge is broken away from plastic casing (see pic) and Right hinge is broken away from lid plastic (see pic).   From what I'm reading, it seems the plastic base, chassis, and possibly lid base and hinge need replaced.  Please let me know what HP is offering as far as replacement parts and repair.  This seems to be an ongoing issue with HP notebooks.  I've purchased a total of three HP notebook/laptops over the past four years so I'm very concerned about these issues and why HP has allowed it to continue for so long and across so many different models.  It seems to me the plastic used in making these parts does not have the tensile strength required in notebook/laptop use.  I would think this issue would've been corrected years ago and not have continued.  Please advise.  I do love all my HP laptops other than these issues.   Thank you.

I have a spreadsheet that has nine columns. Once of these columns (the fourth column) is used for a single character as a method of immediately letting the user know that the row in particular is different to the others. So, there's nothing different about that at all.

What I'd like to be able to do, though, is to have the other eight columns (the three columns before the column mentioned above and the five after) all change their background colour when the single character is entered in the fourth column.

So, if the user inputs data in a new row and leaves the fourth column cell blank, nothing happens. If the user enters the symbol (let's say it's a "#"), then the nine columns will all change their background colour to red.

If anyone can help me with this, I'd greatly appreciate it.

I've hit a dead end on this program. IF you don't know voice changer (just like the name) can change your voice live as it happens. A friend of mine has the same program and when he changes his voice, and talks over the mic, I hear it just fine. No static or anything. Just like it's suppose to.

However when I do it..no. To me, I sound like I'm suppose to. I've tested it by recording myself, playback, ect ect. It seems like its perfect until it leaves my computer. I talk and the playback is perfect, what he hears is static, annoying, not even a language. Very hard for him to understand me. Doesn't matter what program we use or what mic I use. It just doesn't reach him like I hear it.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. -Thanks.

Hi

Spanking new A100-PSAANE (on Vista Premium Home Edition) problems:

1) LCD display -
Suddenly the display starts moving sideways as if you are in a merry-go-round and everything is running sideways! When I close the lid and open it again all is well and the display is exactly the same as it was before the problem started!

2) Hitting the scroll bar causes restore -
Quite often hitting the scroll bar causes that window to restore and clicking the same again causes the window to return to maximize.

Anyone knows the solution to these please???

Answer:Satellite A100 PSAANE: display moves from side to side

Hi

Your issues sound very strange and therefore it would be very interesting to know some more details;

Regarding point 1.) Do you mean the whole display or the single windows??
Did you try to change the screen resolution??? What graphic driver do you use???

Regarding point 2.) What scrollbars do you mean exactly??? Did you mean the ?internet explorer? window scrollbars or the "Windows Explorer" scrollbars???

Finally it would be very interesting to know if these issues happen on fresh recovered Vista OS. I would like to know if the same happens on notebook with factory settings!!

Hi Everybody!!

I'm trying to make a video of multiple videos I have and combine some of them into one frame side by side onto a single video.

For example...

I have two perspectives filmed from this concert I went to. Me and my friend used separate cameras. Now I want to display both camera views onto one window and show them both playing at the same time but showing the different views.

Know what I mean?

I am not familiar with video editing so I am can't figure out how to explain the desired result I am after. So I am not sure if I am making sense. LoL

I can't seem to find what I'm looking for cuz I don't think I'm using the right keywords. I'm also hoping to find a program that does this for free.

Does anybody know of any program like this or anything about the desired effect I'm trying to obtain?

Thanks so much for listening!!

Have a good one!

So my issue is that when I log into my computer it will some times (not all the time) revert from a side by side multi monitor setup to a over under setup. Like if you go into screen resolution settings I will have it set to monitor 1 on the left, and
monitor 2 on the right, then when I lock the computer and then log back in, it will have monitor 1 positioned over the top of monitor 2. 

I'm thinking there is possibly a default that it keeps going back to, but I'm not sure where I would look for that, other than the screen resolution settings. Another possibility for the origin of this problem could be Microsoft User Experience Virtualization
Agent, which we have installed on all our computers here to synchronize the various setting we have connected to our profiles. It looks like UEV might synchronize monitor layout settings, and with that it could be some how defaulting on an over under set up.
Overall I am unsure of what to do about his.

Windows 7, on Toshiba Laptop, all of the recent windows updates have been installed.
I was having issues running the new zynga game on facebook, the ville. I assumed that it was a resource hog and didn?t like the laptop, and it was possible that I didn?t have the most recent installment of Adobe flash, so I upgraded that as well. It still wouldn?t run. So I decided to clean up the hard drive.
I used control panel to uninstall a game that the kids no longer play because it?s now obsolete. I also uninstalled Quickbooks (it wasn?t just quickbooks, it was a bunch of crapware that was installed on the laptop when we purchased it, but since we don?t use quickbook I figured we could get rid of it.) the only reason I bother stating all of this is because I believe in full disclosure. You never know which action caused the issue so it?s best to tell it all. Sorry for the ramble.
I have been noticing that the machine was running slower lately, so that is why I decided to de-clutter the hard drive.
After doing this and rebooting I found that I was unable to run Rockmelt, it came up with the following:

Ok so I am going to go straight into the good stuff.

Essentially I launch Dragon Age and get an error about side by side configuration. I have already done an enormous amount of research on this subject and have found that the problem is usually attributed to the C++ Redistributable from Microsoft.

I tried to remedy this problem 3 different ways (manually working from a system restore point where Dragon Age & Bioshock 2 did not work, but Mass Effect 2, Call of Duty MW2, and the Original Bioshock were still fully functional) this system restore point had the Microsoft 2008 C++ Redistributable installed, and again the games I listed in parenthesis were working fine.

I first uninstalled the 2008 Redistributable and downloaded and installed the 2005 Redistributable, restarted the computer (even though it did not prompt me) and ran into a massive error. Essentially, this install made every game unplayable (all of those I listed above).

Next, I uninstalled the 2005 Redistributable and reinstalled the 2008 without a restart, and tried to launch every game listed above. Of course, I was back to square one, with Dragon Age and Bioshock 2 still giving me the side by side configuration error.

Lastly I tried launching each game through the program 'depends.exe' (using the .exe) to see exactly which dependencies each game required. Of course, both Dragon Age and Bioshock 2 gave me the side by side configuration, telling me that a MSVCP80.dll file could not be found with... Read more
