problems on board sound XP

all my drivers are there and up to date, but no sound, no audio device, no volume control or mixer and sound recording didn't tell it is used by another application. If the sound is redirected to the unknown source. Also, I tried to reload the files audio etc from xp cd but get no Freecell.exe. It is also to stop files accessories/entertaiment installer correctly. my settings might be wrong to direct the sound correctly for media player etc.

First, run your anti-virus and anti-malware programs.

If they find something, get rid of it.

To restore the volume/Blender: open Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer) > tools > Folder Options > views > check Show Hidden Files etc. then place you c:\windows\system32\dllcache and locate the sndvol32.exe file > copy and paste here: crushing c:\windows\system32 if requested.


All sounds now?

See you soon,.

  • Problems with the sound on my PC (i.e., no noise at all). m ' said that the Sndvol32.exe file is missing

    I have problems with the sound on my PC (i.e., no noise at all).  He told me that the Sndvol32.exe file is missing.  I went through the 'fix - it' and the solution is to extract the file from the Windows XP CD.  My PC did not come with it - otherwise, how can I get this file?  Thanks in advance!

    Most of the people do not have a genuine XP bootable CD.   This is good advice if you have a true bootbale CD, but given that the majority of people have never seen one in their life, why start there?  That's why this kind of troubleshooting tips kill me...

    The fix it will not help you.

    This will help you:

    I downloaded a copy of the file you need on my SkyDrive (everyone has a SkyDrive for file sharing).

    You can download it and when you do, place a copy of the file in these two folders (assuming that Windows is installed on your C drive):

    c:\Windows\System32\dllcache (this is where XP keeps backups of important files).

    Here is the link to my SkyDrive and you can get the file you need here:! 311

    When you see the files available for download, you will not see the extension of file (.exe, .dll, .cpl, .sys, etc), but when download you them they will have the right extension.

    You have to put the downloaded files in the correct folders on your system.

    That may not solve all your problems, but at least you will be spending this part and we can then fix the rest.

    Of course the file must never be missing, so something has badly haywire.

    If the system is working properly, what do you think has happened since the last time, that he did not work properly?

    I have a Focusrite Scarlett 18i6 audio card. I have before running on my Mac, version 5.0.3 (VMWARE) and everything worked. After that I updated to the new version 6 and my sound card no sound comes and has connectivity problems in windows. I updated the drivers for my Board to the latest version. I've upgraded to the last version firmeware. And I tested this audio card on two different Macs with version 6, and the problem persisted!

    Note: I use demo version 6.

    The sound card works perfectly in my MAC system with the latest drivers. But the problem remains FUSION version 6. I tested it on two different virtual machines with different operating systems, tested on two different Imacs and nothing back to work as before.

    After several tests, which detects the sound card works perfectly with his last official update from the manufacturer only with version 5.0.3 (VMWARE). With version 6, the problem persists.

    I am desperate because I work with music production and use software for windows in my MAC...

    Sorry writing errors. I live in the Brazil!

    Version 6, it must improve the compatibility issue. Problems I am facing a lot after this update.

  • Satellite T210 problem of speaker sound audio (T210-112) if the system is moved

    * Phone: Satellite *.
    * Model: T210-112 *.
    * Operating system: Windows 7 *.
    Condition: new
    Versions of BIOS/Driver: unknown

    * Symptoms: *.
    * When the phone is picked up, fixed, tilted or moved * in the air during audio playback the * noise reverberates * for a short period until the system is stationary again.
    To describe more in detail, the 'sound-bite' which plays currently gets stuck and repeats several times quickly and then continues to normal playback. Let's say, for example the audio clip plays someone who says the word "toshiba" and pick up the laptop in the middle of it, it comes out as "toshi-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-ba". This has been tested with the internet streaming audio and audio via youtube an installed demonstration program running.

    * Troubleshooting: *.
    -Since it's a new laptop, I returned to the seller and checked if this happened on the view model in the shop. He did, so this seems to be a general problem.
    -J' searched the forum, support pages, google without result.
    -There seems to be no README / info AVAILABLE included with the latest version of the BIOS / Driver downloads from the Toshiba support site that describes known issues.
    -J' looked for related information from REALTEK (I understand that it is an ALC259-based system) but nothing is there.

    * Suspicions: *.
    I think this may be linked to the protection function of the hard disk (?) +, which is supposed to start when he realizes that the laptop may be declining. Perhaps this can be solved through BIOS or driver updates?
    (I have not tried to disable this feature on the system, or update any components that I wanted to return the unmodified system to ensure the refund. I want to buy this system but will not do without a guaranteed solution.)

    I hope you can help!
    Thank you!


    Akuma is right.
    This is related to the installed HARD disk protection software.
    If the laptop would be transferred to fast the HARD disk Protection software blocks the head of the HARD drive in order to avoid that the HARD drive against damage. This leads to delays while writing or reading data from the HARD drive.

    It would be possible to remove the software from the system, but this is not recommended, because the software protects the drive HARD and without this software, you HARD drive may be damaged more quickly.

  • Satellite Pro A60 with departure problems and weird sounds

    Hi all
    Three days ago, as I was using my laptop as usual. Then I restarted and then... just a black screen with an error message does not find a file any (I don't remember exactly) and making some weird sounds (such as the ' clicks')... sounds came the HARD drive I think because it's the right hand...
    I turned off it again and then some other error message (the black screen, white letters) asking for a file system... and weird sounds continued.
    tried twice... same thing... then after 20 minutes after being off of I it works... no error messages... but a long wait to get through the initialization of windows...
    now no more problem reboot... not more weird sounds, but with some performance issues... it has 1.2 GB of RAM and seems like he 'lost' speed... I can't use my iTUNES to listen to music cos is not working properly... I am now using winamp...

    Hi Luis

    On this path, it is not easy to tell what's happening. On this forum you will find several comments on missing files in the startup.

    You can try as a first step to restore the operating system on time earlier (before this problem started) by using the System Restore tool.

  • Problem with driver sound on Satellite A200 under Win XP SP3

    Hi guys

    I recently bought a Satellite A 200 PSAE7. I had downgraded it to Win XP.

    Everything worked perfectly until last night. I restarted the laptop and I got no sound. I tried to reinstall the Realtek audio drivers, he succeeds, ask for a restart, but the sound is still not working. I tried everything, removing the drivers via Add/Remove programs and Device Manager and then put it back. When I restart it tells me 'PCI device detected"after I installed the audio drivers. But the sound does not work.

    Any advice?

    The problem is that you have not installed the MS patches that are really essential.
    I'm talking about the * patch KB888111, KB835221, and *.

    You must remove first the audio driver from the system.
    Then you must install two corrections.
    After restarting again, reinstall the audio driver that is on the page of the Toshiba driver.

    Best regards and good luck

    My speakers and headphones (the connection usb or 3.5 mm jack) make a gurgling noise really annoying every few minutes. Its a loud buzz that stops my audio (sound film, music, notifications) for a few seconds and then returns to normal.

    I reset my computer to an earlier time, and that did not help. I have also installed and reinstalled many of the pilots but that did not prevent the issue.
