Stop Pc Speaker Beep

I found that even modifying the sound scheme didn't affect the command window's response to a ctrl-g (bel) character in the output. No matter what sound settings i made (muting the speakers, changing the volume) i would still get this beep at a heart-attack inducing volume level. Eventually i found that in windows xp's "advanced" options on the "volume control" applet (double-click the speaker in your system tray to bring this up) there is finally a "pc spk mute" checkbox that will shut the bloody thing up. If someone knows how to replace that horrible noise with a sensible sound i'd like to know.

Speaker / Headphone Switcher

Here's the deal: because i live in a small apartment i mainly use my headphones, however sometimes when friends are over i'll switch to speakers, the problem is, it's annoying constantly having to unplug the headphones/speakers from the back of my computer, is there an easier way? Note that the headphone plug on the speakers themselves is broke.

Headphone + Speaker Simultaneously

Well, i'm about to change my x-fi xtrememusic sound card. About a month ago, my sound card started to give me weird sounds in games. I reinstalled the drivers, and now is even worst. Games sound completely distorted, only works ok in regular windows. About a week ago the problem fixed itself, but i still have a problem where the sounds would distort if i play more than 1 sound stream at a time (wmp + youtube), and sometimes my videos will fast forward by themselves (all players, even flash). Also, once in a while, my friends in ventrilo say i sound like a chipmunk and i sometimes hear them as chipmunks too. I have completely clean, and reinstalled the drivers from the website and and the problem persist. I give up, and want to make an upgrade and add a feature i'm really hopeful is available by now. I'm wondering if it's possible to use an auzentech x-fi forte, and use the headphone and speaker inputs for different audio simultaneously. I currently use my x-fi for general sound, but use onboard audio for ventrilo. I'd like to hear the game from the speakers, but my ventrilo conversation from the headphones. Like a ps3 does. Is this possible with a single sound card, or using 2 sound cards is still the only solution?

Computer Speaker Setup

So i have decided to purchase some desktop speakers instead of having my huge stereo on my desk. I need a little bit of advice on what i should buy though. I would like to have a 2. 1 setup since i don't want to mount rear speakers, but if the price is right i have no problem getting a 5. 1 or even a 7. 1. Here is a list of my wants and needs:

Good sound, not an audiophile by any means but i do like to listen to music loud at times
Price point is <$175

Has to look decent, doesn't have to be harmon kardon looking but nice. I would like multiple inputs so i can use it for my television as well, but not required. I prefer the color black, but also not required. That is all i think. I was looking at the klipsch promedia 2. 1 setup, but i can't seem to find a new one, if there is a new version i would be open to that.

Switch Speaker Sides

So i just setup my new computer desk. Unfortunately due to it's design and the length of my speaker cables i had to put the "left" speaker on the right and the "right" speaker on the left. This is annoying when playing video games since all the audio clues are reversed now (ie something sneaking up on you). I couldn't find anywhere in my control panel to reverse the speaker output so i'm hoping one of you can help! I just need a quick simple fix.

Speaker Solution For Xbox 360

I'm trying to find a speaker solution for my little xbox 360 movies/gaming corner. I'm trying to not spend a bunch of cash on it or make it a big purchase because the space it's in is small. I'm using a 24 inch asus monitor with an hdmi input, but the built-in speakers are terrible. I was toying with the idea for a small 5. 1 surround sound system for gaming, the trouble being the only thing i could find that fit the bill was the logitech z-5500 and i'm certainly not up for shelling out over $300. Wondering if anyone knows of anything with an optical input and isn't going to cost me more than $150-$200. Or is there a chance that i could use an old set of creative 5. 1 pc speakers that i have with a decoder. I was looking at them but none of them seemed compatible with the 3, 1/8 inch jacks that the speakers have connecting them. Worst comes to worst and i'll just buy a 2. 1 set but ideally i'd like to know if there is a 5. 1 solution that's not bank breaking.

Monitor Speaker Static Problem

Over the last three weeks or so my samsung sm171p lcd monitor has started to emit a loud hiss and crackle from the built-in speakers when powered up. After a few minutes it slowly dies down to silence but it's getting louder and lasting longer every day. It happens when it comes out of a period of standby more than half an hour as well. If you turn it off then back on once it's warmed up it doesn't do it. I have unplugged everything, taken it to another room and powered it up with nothing but the power connected, and it still does it so i know it's not interference or a loose cable. So it has to be an internal but i'm not the best with a soldering iron!

Don't get me wrong, i'm not asking the forum to diagnose it and offer step by step instructions to fix it! But i'd appreciate it if anyone knows what might be causing this and could give me some hints as to what sort of thing to look for if i decide to get inside it?

Headsets - Fixing Faulty Speaker Plug

The left earpiece of my sennheisers recently died, and i realized that it was (most likely) due to the green plug that goes into the back of the sound card, oddly enough. (Kind of like this one below)

No matter what it's plugged into (sound card, ipod touch) it's iffy, and when i rotate the plug, both earpieces blip out. (Until i undo the rotation) so, obviously, something is wrong with the plug. Any way to repair it, or have a new one put on?

This headset costs a load of money. And, of course, sennheiser won't do anything, so, at first i bought a replacement steelseries siberia, but then had to return it (not worth the $80.could barely even produce bass, and the mic quality was inferior to my 3 year-old, equally-priced sennheisers).

5.1 Speaker Setup With Headset (with Mic) At Same Time

I have an xfi sound card, and i just ordered the sennheiser pc350 headphones for gaming. How should i setup the sound card and inputs to get both to work? I can use a splitter and that would probably work, or should i put the headset into the headphone jack of the speakers? What about the windows sound settings. Do i have to swap back and forth based on what i am using?

Solution For Speaker Noise Due To Wireless Interference

Has anyone been able to solve the problem of speaker noise due to wireless devices (such as cellphones) by clamping rf or ferrite filters around their speaker wires? My audio speakers dont have them, so i was thinking of adding a few to the power line on each of the speakers. They are pretty cheap, runing just a few bucks. Radioshack has them, also ebay. Anyone ?

Creative Inspire 7.1 Multi Channel Speaker Problem

Ok well, about a week ago i ordered off for some speakers, creative inspire 7. 1 multi-channel, so they get here and i realize that my sound card doesn't support them (the connections) so today (got speakers yesterday) i go and buy a sound blaster live! Sound card that supports 7. 1. I hook them up and only 2 speakers are working and the subwoofer. I have my computer configured to 7. 1 home theater system so i don't know what the problem is. Everything is hooked up right, all drivers and everything else. Anyone have any idea how to get my other 5 speakers to work?

Cable To Connect Pc Audio Output To Monitor With Speaker

What kind of cable do i buy to connect pc audio output to monitor w/speaker? I have a "cool" monitor because it has speakers, but not so cool because now, instead of the relatively simple task of buying $8 speakers at walmart, i have to figure out how to connect the pc audio output, to the monitor speaker input, by cable. I was in walmart the other day, and i couldn't seem to find a cable that was obviously just a audio on both ends. What do i buy? Where? How much should i expect to pay for it? I expected it would be a very simple cable - where both ends looked basically like the end that you normally see plugged into the back of a pc. But no i found no such thing.

Stop The Beeping

Ok. When i hold backspace, or del when there is nothing in the text input line, the computer emits this horrible sound kind of akin to a dying bird. It is the system speaker taking instructions from xchat to beep the pc speaker. Why do you still force the computer to output to the pc speaker on windows machines? You know there is such thing as a sound-card, and i can bet that about 95% of computers have it. Please fix this problem, give me a setting to change, or do something to correct this, as it is very annoying and because of this, i have stopped using xchat for windows.

Error: Stop: 0x0000008e

My computer suddenly restarts, usually when the cpu usage goes to 100%. Upon bootup, if i: 1) load xp, i get the old serious error recovery message, which takes me to saying that my video card might need new drivers or i need to tone the acceleration down. (Both of which i've done, to no avail). 2) try loading safe mode, it crashes. 3) sometimes, the bios screen shows up saying that my computer "hung for an improper cpu speed setting". I turned automatic restart off and got the bsod saying (in short): "a problem has been detected/check for adequate disk space/check for driver updates/check with vendor for bios updates/disable memory options/safe mode etc" stop: 0x0000008e (0xc00000005, 0x78e80574, 0xbabc43c, 0x00000000).

7b Stop Error Bsod

Ok, i wanted to reinstall my graphics drivers. So using the ati install manager i express uninstalled everything. Rebooted, and now i'm stuck with a 7b stop error bsod on every boot. Safe mode or normal boot, doesn't matter, same error. I've done some googling and it seems to relate to the boot devices. I can only assume that the ati install manager stupidly uninstalled my raid driver. Unfortunately, all the information i can find relates to installs and upgrades, and to ahci and i can't find anything to tell me how to fix this.

Windows 7 Stop: 0x00000007e

I just finished installing the hardware to my new computer. It seems to post fine and the bios recognizes the hardware. When i went to install windows 7 i got errors and it would hang for 3min and then continue the install and hang again and then continue. One of the errors was a blue screen with various addresses "stop: 0x00000007e(0xfffffff. "

"Ntfs.sys address. " It also said to make sure i have enough disk space and that i have the latest bios verion. I thought i messed up the bios settings so i reset them to the defaults and now it says "bootmgr is missing" and won't boot at all. Asus rampage ii extreme

Bsod With Stop 0x9c

Just thought i might get some ideas here, just got an amd 64 3000+ and chaintek mobo vnf3-250. I used my other existing parts, 120 gig hdd, 330w psu, pny 6800gt, 1 gig of pny gamer ram. So, system was running fine until this morn i get a bsod with stop 0x9c. And, i know this one is generally not a good thing. So, i think it may be lack of power as my gpu requires a 300w by itself. Doubt it's the mobo. Dunno, just wanted your guys' input.

Pc Does Not Even Get To Post Beep

The pc in question worked fine up until a couple weeks ago, the only recent upgrades made to it were adding a half gig of ram and a new video card, both of which worked fine for several months before the computer died. I've tried installing both the original ram and the original video card, neither have resolved the issue. When i turn the pc on now the machine has power, all fans etc start running, but the monitor recieves nothing and the machine does not even begin to approach the post beep. So right now the running total is that i've swapped out the video card, ram and power supply, i don't have a spare motherboard and/or processor around but i'm dreading the prospect of that being the last step. Can anyone think of something i might have missed?

No Beep Upon Booting Up

I was going to run it and flash the bios before continuing install, but that kind of requires the system to post. The internal speaker is hooked up to the motherboard, and there is no beep upon booting up. I referenced my mobos manual, and there is no code for no beep. I tried running the system without the ram in, and still no post. Im not really sure where the next debugging step is.

Beep Codes

I think my windows box just died. When i boot up, i get a long beep, pause, long beep, pause, long beep, etc. It continues over and over. I've reseated the cpu and ram. Any suggestions?

Beep Code

Whenever i turn on my computer, it makes this long beep noise and i am guessing somethings wrong with it. The thing is, everything seems to work fine. >_>;; i tried to "decode" the beep code, but i must be quite stupid, because i can't seem to match with the right one. My motherboard is: ga-965p-ds3. The beep codes listed on its manual are:
1 short: system boots successfully
2 short: cmos setting error
1 long 1 short: dram or m/b error
1 long 2 short: monitor or display card error
1 long 3 short: keyboard error
1 long 9 short: bios rom error
Continuous long beeps: dram error
Continuous short beeps: power error

I have recorded the beep noise with my mp3 player and the sound has been slightly distorted(?), But it didn't change much from the actual sound.

Keyboard And Mouse Stop Working

My mouse and keyboard started to be non responsive. I would be in the middle of writing a sentence, but all of a sudden my keyboard and mouse would stop working, then about 10 seconds later start up again. It wasn't a total system freeze, because chat messages would still appear on msn, and everything would still move about on screen when i was playing a game. This happened on and off for about 1 hour, until i couldn't get the keyboard or mouse to work at all. I booted my pc this morning, but my keyboard and mouse still failed to work. It would boot into vista and xp fine (im dual booting), but they still wouldn't work - even before i could get into windows. I reset cmos, i tried switching out the ram but nothing seems to work, and the problem seems to be getting worse. About 5 mins ago, i tried to boot into xp, but my whole system froze, and my motherboard let out a faint single beep. When i boot up, i get a single beep telling me that all (should be) fine. Anyone ever had this problem? Or anyone know how to fix it? I have tried different keyboards and mice, and i've tried plugging the usb ones in different sockets, but it didn't make a difference.

Cd Writer Stop Working Randomly

I've upgraded two computers from windows 98 second edition to windows xp professional. Ever since the upgrade, the computers' cd writers haven't been functioning properly. Randomly, they will stop working, and the cd-rw drive, along with any other cd drives, will disappear from 'my computer' as though they never existed. I also notice that when this problem happens, the cd drives will show a red light, as if they're trying to burn something.

Error: Machine_check_exception - Stop: 0x00000009c

I built a new computer last week, and it was working great for the first couple of days, but every time i turned it on it loaded slower and slower until windows would no longer load. I've tried installing windows 3 times now, and every time i get the same problem after a few bootups. The last time i turned it on i got the following error message:

Stop: 0x00000009c ( 0x00000004, 0x8054d5fo, 0x8b2000000, 0x00070f0f)


I've tried googling it, but haven't gotten anything satisfactory. Please help, i'm getting frustrated and feeling like tossing this thing out the window.
