i've been having this issue for a while now, my headset hasn't been detecting. it is connected via the 3.5mm headphone jack. this is a problem i've had with every pair of headphones/headsets i've tried, so it isn't an issue with the model. the only reason i haven't noticed this issue until as of recent is because i've had a USB connected headset. now that i need to use the 3.5mm jack, nothing is detecting. i've tried to fix this issue, and all that has happened is that my headset shows up as "Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio)", and will not register my microphone. any help?
note that these three screenshots are taken whilst the headset is plugged into the 3.5mm headphone jack (the only connector that came with the headset)

Alright so I have a BRAND new Sony Vaio laptop with Windows 7, it's model # is VPCCW21FX. I got it only a week ago.
I play games so I connect with Ventrilo, but with this laptop it is not detecting my headset. It's a standard Logitech headset that connects through those pink and green jacks on the side of my laptop. It only recognizes the laptop's built-in microphone, however. This is what I've tried to get my headset's mic to work:

1. Disabling the built-in microphone. The laptop still did not recognize that I had a separate microphone plugged in through the jack.

2. Updating sound card's driver / rollback to previous, to see if it might work. It did not.

3. I tried to use the Ease of Access -> Install new microphone. The laptop would only still detect the built-in microphone, not the one that was plugged in through the jack.

I know it's not the headset's fault because it was working perfectly fine in another computer just this morning, and I tested it on my brother's computer a few minutes ago. His computer detects my headset. Yes I have the plugs in the correct holes, and no there are no drivers since this isn't a USB headset. The laptop KNOWS that something is plugged into the mic jack because it mutes the laptop's built-in microphone once there's something in it, but no sound is detected.

As you can see from the image, the Realtek microphone is the built-in one. My headset is currently plugged in, but ... Read more

Answer:Laptop not detecting headset

on that screen if you click on the microphone - so thatthe properties button highlights
click on that
another screen opens - click on recording TAB
on that screen - do you have 3.5mm Jack - anything you can enable there?

Well I have a Sony Vaio and just plugged a mic in (on vista) and it worked ...... so ignore above - that made no difference on my machine

I used start> programs> accessories> sound recorder
to test with

try that see if it works with that application

Hi, I recently bought a new headset due to one of the ears falling apart...

My old one was USB with a 3.5mm cable and worked perfectly fine. The new one I got has no USB and uses the green and pink cables. I've plugged them in and it seemed as if they were working well but I realised they're not actually picking up the sound from the microphone, they're playing my computers sounds.

I looked through other forums and found people saying that it may be a driver issue, so I updated and got the Realtek HD, which then showed the Stereo Mix in my devices. Basically what's happening is that Stereo Mix and Microphone are both playing volume at the same level and acting as if they're the same. I've tried disabling Stereo and keeping Mic but it still plays the computers sounds. I've tried vice-versa too. The "Speakers" device is also playing at the same level of volume.

And then obviously since it's doing that, it's playing my computer sounds through Skype.

Basically what I want to achieve is have the headset playing sound but also be able to speak through skype without it playing the sounds I have on.

Also, there's a little switch on the cable to act as a "Mic Mute" switch, if the Mic is ON then the sound is fine, if I switch it to OFF the sound is very echo'd and distant.

Answer:New Headset, not detecting microphone.

First, stereo mix should be set as the default recording device. Then any input device that is used will be heard.

As Windows only allows one default audio playback device, separating sounds or what's heard may not be possible or is an option of the application program. I'm not familiar with Skype so I don't know what the options are or do.

Hi,

I recently purchased a VersionTech EACH G2000 and I plugged it into my computer, but Windows does not recognize it in the playback nor recording devices. Help would be appreciated.

Answer:Windows not Detecting Headset

From what I see this has the two 3.5mm plugs and also a USB. I can't find out if the USB is just for the lights or if it is used for anything else in the headset. But, make sure you plug in everything.

As you have a Dell, and are you using the built in sound device? or have you added a separate sound card? If you added a separate sound card, you need to connect the front panel to the new sound card.

If you are using the built in sound device, try connecting the headset and mic to the rear connectors (Green and Pink) and see if it works there.

Windows will happily output sound to my headset but there is no input from the mic. I have a xonar dg as my soundcard.

The headset mic has been tested on a laptop and works
The microphone mute button the the headset cable is set correctly
The jack is correctly in
On plugging in (and fiddling with the jack) the mic I can see noise in CP/Sound window
It has been tested on the front panel, the soundcard jack & motherboard jacks
Drivers have been wiped and reinstalled
System restores had no effect
A reinstallation of windows keeping programs & settings had no effect
The mic is not muted or set too low in Control Panel / Sound
The mic in my webcam works correctly (USB)
Connections inside the case are not loose
Toggling the front mic option in Cp/Sound/Recording/(the mic)/properties/custom has no effect
I also managed to get the mic to work (badly) for a few seconds after windows reinstalled. After I plugged in the headphone jack, the mic went dead and hasn't recovered since.

The mic has worked on this PC before, it seems some setting / software / driver is mucking up.

Answer:Windows not detecting input from headset

I noticed the sound card can only handle up to 48KHz/24-bit recording. However the CP sound options would let me set it above this. Lowering it to the acceptable level made no difference.

Question: Headset Port

The headset port in the front of my computer is acting up, it did this after I installed a network card, but I'm pretty sure that has nothing to do with it. But anyways, When i plug my headset cord in all the way in the port, I can only hear out of the right earphone. I plug it in partially, so the cord is sticking out a bit and I can hear from both earphones but the 3D sound is off. I know it isn't the headphones because I've tried the other port in the back. I would use that port but my headset has a mic as well and the only mic port is in the front.

Answer:Headset Port

Sounds like one of the wires that connects the port to the motherboard has come loose. It needs to be reconnected. If you don't have a diagram that shows you where everything plugs in to the mobo, or haven't done this before, i don't recommend doing it. That's just IMHO, of course.

I'm trying to plug a USB camera into the back of my computer, but the computer won't acknowledge that I plugged it in. I don't get an error message or anything, it simply doesn't seem to notice anything. (I've tried it with a flash drive, too—same deal.)

I'm not missing drivers for the device itself, as I've plugged them both into other ports and they work fine. It seems that the port itself is the problem. I just reinstalled Windows yesterday after getting infected with a System Fix virus, so that may have something to do with it.

EDIT: It may have something to do with my BIOS, as I changed my boot order for the reinstall. I'm not aware of anything else being changed, but it's possible.

Answer:USB (The actual port) Not Detecting

If I understand you correctly, a pair of USB ports on the back are not working but other ports on your computer are working, are these USB ports on the back not working by chance blue in color?
Check and make sure that you have all USB ports enable in BIOs and then make sure that you have the newest chipset drivers for your motherboard installed.

I Added a ALi M5273 - 2 port PCI USB card to my PC to install my Lexmark X1270 Printer. The system recognizes the USB card, & also win 98se, in its Controlpanel/System/Device Manager. However, in the printer wizard, it does not detect the USB Port!
Could any one help me in getting the printer wizard recognizing the USB Port?
 

Answer:USB PORT - System Not detecting..

The printer wizard shouldn't need to detect the USB port as such, just the printer when it's installed.

Plug the printer in to the USB port and the "found new hardware wizard" should pop up. If you need drivers, and you may well do with SE, then install them when it asks for them. Once the printer is installed you should be able to find it in the print wizard.

Hello,

I have a regular headset, and I bought 2 adapters: a 3.5mm female - usb female and a usb male-usb male.
When I bought this i thought about plugging my headset into the adapter and the double male usb, so I could listen to music in my headset while having them plugged into the USB port. Sadly, it doesn't work. I don't know if I have to install something, but when I plug everything in all I hear is noise from the left part of my headset.

I am using this (or trying to) use this configuration because my pc's 3.5mm jack doesn't work.

Can anyone please help me?

Thank you in advance,
loismen

I use the front USB ports for my headset. there are 2 in the front. However there is a big noticeable difference in volume with the left compared to the right. The left one is a good volume and easy to work with, but the right USB port always has lower volume.

My guess is that it's a power problem, but I want to make sure before I do anything.

I would just use the left one, but for some reason, the port is sensitive and disconnects easily.

Answer:USB Headset louder with one USB port than the other

It would depend on how the hardware is connected, both at the motherboard to the front panel and how the front panel is configured. This is more a general hardware issue than an audio issue, even though its affecting the headset.

I thought this would work with my laptop as it only has one port for mic/audio, however, I can only use either audio or mic at a time. I read that I may need to get a splitter and use the adapter with the separate mic/audio leads. Any other suggestions? Thanks

Most if not all headsets come with a mic jack as well as a headphone jack. Obviously I cannot use this in the combo port. I thought and I have seen it somwhere but cannot locate it where lenovo sells a splitter along with a headset that has a mic. I am not sure if it was a usb slitter or a splitter where you plug it into the combo port.

Hi all and thanks for all the help over the years.
I have a fairly nice surround sound headset that is plugged in to a front USB port on my computer. Every once in a lot of my keys won't work so I can't even sign in. Certain keys like the Escape, and backspace key will work, along with the space bar. If I turn of my computer and unplug the headset my keys seem to work. However, I also notice that the usb port I had the headset plugged in seems a little wobbly.
I have a cheap headset I'll try in it to see if that's the usb port is the problem.
I'm wondering though if there is testing device that lets you test the headset's wiring and usb connection.

I have USB ports on the side of my Dell monitor and on the front of my system unit (Corsair 800D). The issue here is with my Plantronics 478 USB headset plugged into a port on my Dell monitor. FYI: USB drives test out fine using those same ports.

Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit, fully patched up.

Just this morning, my headset stopped working with Skype, when the headset was plugged into a port on the Dell monitor. However, if I plug that same headset into a system unit USB port, it works fine.

If I check the Skype Tools/Audio settings, it shows two different microphones or speakers, for the exact same Plantronics hardware. For the Dell USB port, the microphone is detected as "5 - Plantronics .Audio 478 USB." That same microphone shows up as "7 - Plantronics .Audio 478 USB.

I uninstalled the driver and re-installed it, but I got the same results, above. Again, the Dell monitor USB ports work fine with thumb drives. So what is going on here?

I've had my computer for around 2 years now and there hasn't been a single thing wrong with it. Suddenly today when I plugged in my headset, there was a really loud pop sound and when the jack was pushed all the way in, there is a static noise. After a couple of minutes the sound dies down and disappears, then comes back again in a random time period. The sound responds to when I scroll up and down a webpage. It responds slightly to all other imputs (ie moving the mouse, holding down keys on the keyboard). It does not respond to cpu load. When I utilize my graphics card under heavy load, the sound changes to a different static noise. So basically the noise responds to almost anything that is happening in the environment.

The noise does not scale with the pc volume. The noise is the same whether I have the volume to 100, 0, or mute.

The sound card is the onboard of my dfi infinity motherboard.

Only this port is affected, my speaker output and digital out are fine.

I did all the wiring for the usb, firewire, mic and headset myself and they are far from any source of static. Nothing has changed in my case; I havent even opened it in a month.

The only thing new at all was a vista update, but none of them affected my soundcard.

I dont think ill die if this issue is unresolved, but its just really annoying. Also its really puzzling.

Hello. Test the audio driver by switching between the Realtek driver and the Windows native audio driver.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 [but SEE NOTE].7. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio" (the native driver).8. Click "Next".9. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 10. Restart the laptop if prompted. If not prompted, sometimes you have to restart, sometimes not.[To get back to the Realtek driver, do it again but reverse the names in steps 2 and 7.]NOTE: if you have a 2-in-1 model and do not see a "High Definition Audio" option after step 6, then uncheck "Show compatible hardware". Then in step 7, if you see 2 "High Definition Audio" devices, select the 2nd one. On some models it is called Intel High definition Audio.If you only have the symptoms with one of the drivers, then the other is at fault. If you have the same symptoms with both audio drivers, then it is very probably not a driver issue.

HELLO TO ALL !

I am knew on the board. Greetings

I installed a NEW Logitech USB Headset 350 onto my Winows XP Service Pack 2 generic 'puter.

I now have no speaker sound and no option shows except the headset and "Modem #1 line ".

It sorta looks like I have no speaker drivers .

Unplugging the headset does not help.

Anybody know how to fix this problem so I am not forced to wear a headset for audio ALL OF THE TIME ?

HELP !

(ME)
 

Answer:Installed new USB Headset NOW no speaker audio even if I unplug the headset

Yeah, my USB headset was a little weird at first as well.

Try going into your volume control (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control):
1. Click Options
2. Properties
3. Change the mixer device from the USB headset to your speakers.

Should work.

Also should note you can change the output settings in most audio software (for example: Windows Media Player, Winamp, etc.) so if you can't hear anything from your speakers when using those programs, try fiddling with those settings as well. I know for Winamp it's Options > Preferences > Plug-ins > Output > double-click the plug-in you use (mine is out_ds.dll) and again change it to your speakers using the drop down menu.

I can't figure out how to fix this. I noticed that, when I'm watching a video, my headset's mic will relay the audio coming into my headset. Disabling Stereo Mix doesn't fix it. The physical controller that's on my headset cable doesn't stop it from happening, as even if I turn the volume knob all the way down and flick the mute switch, it's still picking up the audio. Muting my headset from within the computer stops the mic from hearing it, as does switching to my speakers that are plugged into the front jack. My headset is a 3.5mm jack type plugged into the back of the computer, directly into the motherboard.

Hey,

the topic pretty much says it. I bought myself a new headset(C-media headphone set or something) which uses a USB-port instead of an original sound-port-thing. The problem is, whenever I plug the headset in the USB-port pretty much nothing happens and I can't get the sound in the headset, it just stays in the speakers...

It used to be no problem when I used a headset with the sound-port on the motherboard to just change it. Anyone have any suggestions on what I might do? :(

edit: forgot to say that it works just fine after rebooting the computer.

Thank you

Answer:Problem with USB-headset(Can't switch between headset and speakers without rebooting)

Hi Foonksh,

Try going into the Control Panel and go into Sounds and Audio Devices. From there you can pick the default device for recording and for playback. In the playback section, set the headset as the default device instead of your speakers.

With my old headset i used to have a blast recording sounds/music coming out of my comptuer directly using wave out. Often for MSN voice clips and such.

I haven't changed anything, but now that i have this new headset, the only recording i seem to be able to do is voice recording in sound recorder, i can't seem to record wave out mix on sound recorder, and can't record anything whatsoever in msn voice clips.

I can hear voice clips sent to me though, strange thing is, when someone invited me to an audio conversation earlier, i got the annoying ringing noise alright , but i couldn't hear anything.

I checked my volume controls nothing is muted.

I have a almost broken headset, but the microphone still works fine, The microphone is connected on the wire right before the headset, Its not actually touching the headset itself.

Would this microphone still work if the headset was cut off?

Sorry but I can't manage to take a photo but

Answer:Will a Headset microphone still work if I cut it off the Headset?

Is the microphone actually supported by the headset, by that I mean when the set is on your head is the microphone carried close to your mouth so you have both hands free. If this is the case then cutting off the headset will mean the microphone will not have any way of being held near your mouth.
If you cut it off you will have to be very careful you don't cut the wires for the microphone & it's possible that there is a common return wire for the earpieces & the microphone in the form of a shielded cable, so it would be very difficult, but if you have skills in this area it could be done.

I've searched around a lot about this topic, but after hours and days of searching, I've found nothing to fix my problem. I have a headset that has speakers and a microphone (3.5mm jacks) that work fine, except when I'm trying to talk to someone using the microphone, they can hear the sounds coming from my headset (youtube videos, game sounds etc). I've tried installing the Realtek HD Audio Codec but it disappears after it finishes installing and after I restart (although it still remains in the Programs and Features uninstall page), the program files for it is empty with the exception of RtlUpd64.exe which doesn't do anything when executed and a few other files.
In device manager, the things I have under sound, video and game controllers are Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus and the Intel Display Audio. I've updated everything to the latest. Also, I recently system restored my computer and before I did I had IDT High Definition Audio Drivers, but after updating they were changed.
I think the problem is that stereo mix is enabled somewhere or something to do with my drivers as when I tried plugging my headset into my brother's computer, it worked fine (he has the Gigabyte Realtek Audio Manager thing and was able to adjust the stereo mix settings).
If there's a program or workaround to this, or how to disable the stereo mix like through registry or something, please let me know.

Answer:Headset mic recording sounds through headset?

You are correct, that is the usual cause of this problem. And aside from being set in the drivers, it can sometimes be set in the application (used for the communication).

That model does appear to use the IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio chipset. The problem is likely in the fact that you upgraded to Win10 and I don't see that HP supports nor supplies drivers for Win10 (I only see drivers for 7 and 8). Which means you are using generic drives supplied by Windows. The generic Windows drivers often work well enough to get hardware functional, but quite often don't support all hardware or all features of all hardware.

I also ran a command, 'netstat -aon' and did not find a listing of 1270.0.1:80/443 or 0.0.0.0.80/443 which seems to imply that nothing should be affecting port 80 or 443.

I also downloaded firefox and it cannot access the internet either. The only way I'm able to access the internet at the hotel I'm located at was to call the hotel's tech support and they had me go into the LAN settings of internet options and manually select port 8080.

Well, this has me baffled. My Bell Internet Security Services Activation (I just installed it on a computer not used for some 4 or 5 months) popped up a window saying "Waiting for Internet connection"...and waiting and waiting. But my Netgear wireless connection to the router in the house indicates "very good" signal strength, which I thought meant I was connected. Obviously not!

I tried opening IE. "Internet Explorer cannot display the web page" (much as I expected)

Clicked the button which was showing on the IE cannot connect page "Diagnose connection problems" and followed the instructions. The final diagnostic is "Windows cannot connect to the internet using HTTP, HTTPS or FTP. This is probably caused by firewall settings on this computer. Check the firewall settings for the ports HTTP...etc." Where on this earth are they?!

I checked the Windows Firewall settings and found it "off (not recommended)" so I switched it on.

I re-ran the diagnostic on the IE page and nothing has changed.

My question is:

How do I check the settings for HTTP port (80) and HTTPS port (443) and FTP port (21)? Also what do I set them to?

Need some advice a quick as possible.

Windows XP Pro
ofc had a built in serial port go bad, it was hooked to a charicter generator (don't no how to spell charicter) for a tv channel.
Installed a Controller Card with two serail ports PCI Multi I/O Controller Card, it didn't show up in the device manager was having problems getting the driver to work. says to load driver first then put in the pci card. Anyway it wouldn't work. The port that was built in (that went bad was on com 1) When the new card didn't work I used a usb with a serial adaptor and it went in fine and showed up in the divice manager and it said it was working and it started out on com 3, I no each time you plug the adaptor into a different usb port it goes to a different com port. That isn't a problem cause it would stay in the same port. Anyway device manager said it was working we changed the charicter generator to com 3 but it wouldn't work. We no the cables are good. I then got a PCI Card with one serial port instead of two and installed it and it show right up in the device manager and said it was working and I for get what comport it was on but changed it to com 1. that port didn't work either. Finally brought in another windows xp computer and hooked everhthing to it and it works. The xp computer I brought in had no serial port so used the same usb to serial adaptor that we had used and it work the first time. Show up in the device manager just like on the first comp...

1. I would like to change my COM 1 TO COM 3.
Can this be done in the CMOS? or is there a simplier yet effective way that it can be done?

I need your help as soon as possible.

Answer:How Do I change Com.port 1 to Com.port 3? My modem is silent. Dual booting problem

What do you mean by changing COM1 to COM3? Do you want to move a device? Reassign IRQs? Physically pick one up off the motherboard and move it?

Your modem sound is usually configured in two places. One is in the Control Panel, and the other is in the Dial-up Networking settings. Adjust the volume there.

Are you running Windows 2000 and Windows 98 on separate paritions (drive letters)? If so, you'll need to use special software to convert the FAT32 file system to NTFS. I believe Parition Magic will allow this without data loss. However, I would never make such a large system change without first backing up data. There is always the chance that everything could get wiped out.

I have an old desktop tower that I've system restored and I'd like to use the hard drive to store my photographs and videos and such. I found it has a FireWire port on the back. My current laptop has and eSATA/USB combo port on it.
My question. Can I link the two so the old tower will appear on my laptop as an external hard drive? Are those two ports even compatiible?

Answer:Can I connect an old hard drive tower's Fire Wire port to the eSATA port on my current laptop?

I believe that Firewire port is not meant to connect PC to PC like the Ethernet port, it works more like a USB port to connect compatible devices like digital cameras... but that port is old and most modern consumer devices are not compatible with Firewire.
You can use that HDD by taking it out of the PC case and use a HDD enclosure like this one, if you want a HDD enclosure you must check if your HDD is SATA or IDE.

hi,

Recently i've noticed that port 50 000 is blocked, and bitcomet says it is blocked from using this for listening. Port 50 000 used to be open, and i even forwarded it to my router.

Currently i have no firewalls running, not even the windows firewall. I also have no anti-virus running. I've checked the port forwarding settings on my routers admin page and they appear correct. Does anyone have any ideas how i could unblock this port? Thanks. I am running windows xp home.
 

Answer:can't unblock port 50000 - needed as listen port for bitcomet

You may not get a whole lot of help here. Please read the TSG rules for the reason.

I have dual monitors......my primary display monitor is a Chimei CMV223D
My secondary display monitor is an Acer AL1916W.

My graphics card is an HD ATI Radeon 5800.

PROBLEM:

My primary display monitor which usually has a display resolution of 1680x1050 is currently stuck on 640x480 and in the property settings it won't let me change the resolution. The cable running from the Graphics card is an HDMI cable with a HDMI/DVI converter. I have also tried using the DVI port of the video card to the DVI port of the PC which comes up with same problem. Using a DVI/VGA converter and a VGA cable the VGA port on the monitor works fine!!! SOOOO long story short there is definitely something going on with the monitors DVI port.........

This randomly occurred overnight and is driving me insane to know what I need to fix. I have used different cables and to no such luck. My secondary monitor is just humming away just fine! But I really need my primary display.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled video drivers for the graphics card which is the Catalyst control centre suite and all monitor drivers appear to be up to date.

WHY oh why is my monitor locked at this resolution!!??? How to fix please help!!!

Answer:DVI port on monitor is stuck res of 640x480 VGA port works fine

Never mind!!!!

Hi guys, I bought a new (sealed) Lenovo IdeaPad Y430 on TigerDirect.ca Everything was working properly, but, yesterday, I had this message from Windows when I plugged my Kingston USB Flash Drive (left side port). "Power surge on USB hub port" So I unplugged the USB key, rebooted the system. Plug my USB key again, no warning message, but no USB key detected... So, I reboot the computer, with the key plugged in, going in the BIOS and when I take a look in the boot device order, my Kingston flash drive is not detected. If I do the same thing with another USB port, it works. I tried to mount my USB key on Ubuntu too, nothing to do. So, is there something to do? Or my USB port is dead and I must ship my laptop to Lenovo? Thanks a lot, Jack

Answer:I had "Power Surge on USB hub port" on my Y430 and now the USB port doesn't work

You can look inside it - maybe just a shortage and crossings of contacts inside port.If so just fix it by a little pin.if not - send for repair.

So I'm not exactly sure what information I need to share to resolve this issue or know how to fix it. I've been trying to open this port (7198), and no matter what I try it just won't open. I'm not exactly sure how to explain the problem, but the title pretty much says all. If there's any information I need to share please tell me.

Hey Guys,

I have been messing around with Apache from (XAMPP) on my Windows computer. I know that it is not secure, but I am just testing it for right now (for fun).

I am behind a Linksys WRT54g router. I can easily access the apache server from internally (locally), and in order for me to be able to access it externally (external IP in address bar), I have to port forward in my router.

So, I port forwarded port 80 and everything worked fine. I just had a question about this.

Since most internet (HTTP) traffic is served through 80, and I just port forwarded 80 to one computer, how do the other computers on my network still have access to the net. Don't get me wrong, it's awesome that this works, but I would just like to know how. Theoretically, wouldn't all the traffic that is coming through 80 be routed to that one computer?

Can someone explain this to me?

Also, when people use Apache to host sites, do they usually keep the apache ServerName (in httpd.conf) at localhost, or do they change it to a different IP? I would imagine they would keep it at localhost, so what would be the reason for changing that to a different IP?

Thanks!

CDMA software requires a COM port to communicate with a cell phone. I'm using HW Virtual Serial Port v3.1.2 (single port, standalone install).

I have a separate modem and router. My Win8.1 PC is hardwired to the modem. Windows firewall is off. Windows Defender is off. Motorola Mobile Drivers Installation 5.9.0 is installed (directly from Moto's website for my phone although Win8 is not listed just Win7. I did not install in Win7 compatibility mode.). My Motorola Droid Razr HD is running stock 4.1.1 ROM. It is booted into BP Tools. WiFi is off. USB Debugging is on. It's connected as MTP (media device). Stay awake is on. Modem, PC, & phone have been rebooted. There are no errors in Device Manager for the Motorola USB Networking Driver.

In IP config, the IPv4 address for the Motorola USB Networking Driver is 192.168.137.1. In HW Virtual Serial Port under Settings tab, I unchecked NVT Enabled. On the Virtual Serial Port tab, I selected Port Name=COM10, IP Address=192.168.137.2, and Port=11008. When I select Create COM, COM10 is created and I can see it in Device Manager but I get a LAN status error (in HW Virtual Serial Port app). So something is not right. In Network & Sharing Center, I see it's an unidentified public network with no internet access (IPv4).

I'm at a loss on how to fix this. Anyone know what I'm missing? Thank you in advance for the help.

As mentioned in the title I have both pieces of hardware.  I also just purchased a third Dell U2414H LCD monitor.  I am trying to connect all 3 via display port.  However it seems that all I can do is 2 monitors?  When I try to daisychain them I got 2 monitors mirroring each other and one through HDMI off the laptop.

Is this a physical limitation of the replicator?  Is there a firmware update somewhere?

Answer:Dell Latitude E6520 & E-Port Plus 2 - Display port issue

The E6520 comes with Intel HD Graphics 3000.  The specs for that GPU are buried in the specs for the CPU itself, but if you go to ark.intel.com and look up your CPU, then scroll down to the graphics section and verify that it shows Intel HD Graphics 3000, you'll find that that GPU only supports 2 independent displays, which is why you see mirroring.  More recent Intel GPUs do indeed support 3 displays, but no Intel GPUs to my knowledge yet support 4.
If your E6520 has the NVIDIA discrete GPU, I can't find any information on NVIDIA's site about maximum number of supported displays, but based on your experience I would assume it's 2 unless indicated otherwise.

Dear Toshiba Forums users,

I've got a problem with VGA port. I'm using Windows XP Operating System. Notebook, don't like to display to External Monitor, I tried to connect all monitors at my office, but didn't resolve this problem. I also tried to reinstall Windows XP, again, and nothing changed.

Answer:Satellite U300-13M - external monitor port (VGA port) isn't working

Hello

I guess Satellite U300 was preinstalled with Vista. Am I right about that?
Anyway, if you want to use external monitor and switch successfully to it you need to install Toshiba tools and utilities. There are several of them and this will allow you to use FN+F5 key combination and switch your desktop from notebook LCD display to external monitor.

Can you please tell me one thing: have you installed all stuff from Toshiba download page following Installations Instructions document?
The notebook configuration is not known to me but try please to check Intel properties and let me know if the external monitor is recognized in properties. Usually you can there choose option to use external monitor.

You can also start Toshiba HWsetup utility. There must be tab called ?Display?. There you can also find one option to use LCD +monitor at start up.

Check it out please and post the results.

My laptop had headphones plugged in because I was watching a film, but while I was in another room, my laptop was knocked onto the floor (around 1.5-2 ft drop) landing on the headphones jack, the wire is fine, but the ports completely broken, I can see cracks and its loose and everything

The laptop has Realtek HD audio manager, and in my experience of this program on other desktops I've had, I was able to change what port does what.

My laptop only has a headphones port and a mic port, and I would like to see if I can switch the mic port to be the headphones port because I never use an external mic, however in Realteks audio manager I can't find out how to do this. In pictures I've seen on the internet there is a "Device Advanced Settings" button (as seen in this picture http://www.vistax64.com/attachments...ealtek-hd-audio-driver-version-hd_manager.jpg) but my program doesn't have this.

Do I need to download a newer version of the software? or is it just not possible to change my mic port to be my headphone port? I dont mind if I have to use third party software, I just want it to tide me over till I can get it sent away.

Thanks for suggestions, greatly appretiated
 

Answer:Realtek HD audio manager, change a mic port to a headphones port?

I doubt very much if this will be possible. The mic and headphone ports are wired directly to the Audio section of the motherboard, there connections cannot be altered.

Your best bet is to get the damaged port repaired.

Answer:Portege M200: serial port does not work with port replicator

Hello Lee

I just can confirm that when you use Advanced port replicator III with Portege M200 several ports are not working. Problem is that Portege M200 does not support these interfaces.


This is a technical limitation and the PS/2 Mouse port, PS/2 Keyboard port, Serial port, i-Link port (Firewire), and DVI port will not be supported when Portege M200 is docked on the Advanced Port Replicator III. :(

Hello guys,

I am being more concerned since few days about daily suspicious network traffic in my network about the below.

Looks like UDP port 137 from my private IP contacting destination port 137 to a public IPs (one source to many public destinations). I investigated these traffic by taking into consideration about 50 + offenses and 80% scan results on these PCs didn't find anything suspicious. Rest 30% detected some PUP programs from registry and some adwares, which I believe are not that much suspicious. (Scanned by Malwarebytes and Super anti spyware)

Below is a syslog log I am posting for your reference captured by my SIEM tool sent by Firewall.

<164>%ASA-4-106023: Deny udp src Internal:172.28.169.167/137 dst External:114.80.174.240/137 by access-group "My_CSM_FW_ACL" [0xb292c4f, 0x412e8e2f]

This traffic is happening on a daily basis, and to avoid security issues we have to unnecessarily scan those machines. But is this really a suspicious traffic ? Could someone please help me on this, please. After a brief investigation, if I find something good, I can save a lot of waste work by colleagues sitting abroad scanning the machines.
