It seems that there are constant issues with windows 10 and sound blaster sound cards like mine. I have a sound blaster x-fi titanium pci express sound card and every time i turn off my speaker controller(unit with volume and adjustments for sub, center and rear speakers); then turn it back on after awhile; it gives me a high pitched hum noise and the audio comes out all garbled and crackling.
Every time I reboot it seems I lose my audio on my sound blaster x-fi titanium pci express sound card. Also; it seems like every time I turn my audio controller off for awhile then back on; i get at high pitched hum sound and then when i try and play something I get crackling audio. What the heck is up with windows 10 and these issues? Ive never had these problems with my sound card under windows 7.
I understand the reason why onedrive is a standalone app on phones and pcs, because they can constantly update and improve the app.But the current onedrive app has enough features for regular use.And if they want they can always improve it with small minor updates even if it is integrate into the system's file explorer..So why don't they just integrate it into phone's and pc's file explorer itself instead of making it as a standalone app?.It will be more convenient to access all our files in one place instead of using two different apps.Giving great importance to ondrive by baking it into system's file explorer makes even more sense to MS's""Mobile-first cloud-first" strategy.I am not sure why they don't do that.are there any special reasons that you can think of why MS doesn't want to do that?
I have recently bought a new motherboard (ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming) and a new CPU (i5-6600K). After I formatted the system to start fresh, I installed a minimum of drivers before upgrading from Windows 7 to 10. Now, the problem is that EVERY time I playback any kind of sound (music, youtube, or just the speaker tests in Windows), a brief crackling or scratching noise is heard although the audio quality afterwards is fine. When playback stops, the same crackling or scratching sound comes once again. If I open youtube and keep a video open in a tab, the crackling/scratching noise never comes. If I close the browser with the youtube video open, the noise comes.
So far I've tried this: - disable all sound effects (under enhancement in speaker properties) - change the default format to the lowest (16 bit, 44100 Hz) - uninstall and reinstall the Realtek High Definition Audio driver - tried different headphones, earplugs, speakers - tried different audio ports (front and rear)
I'm currently not sure whether the problem is caused by Windows 10 or the motherboard, although I have not tested it in Windows 7.
Bought Windows 10 Pro from an authorized dealer and successfully installed then activated Windows 10 on a standalone PC with the Activation key that came with the CD.
With that same CD I installed Windows 10 on a Laptop I had as well, (an additional machine). Could not activate because the key was already being used on the standalone. Okay fine....went to Windows Store and bought another key...arrrrg. The laptop activation was successful "Windows 10 on this device is activated with a digital entitlement"
So what happens if my Laptop goes south, crashes and burns lets say. I re-install Windows 10 with the CD I have, how is that Digital Entitlement I just bought for the Laptop, going to be applied? Or remembered? Surely I'm not going to have buy another...
When I installed Windows 10 upgrade I was pretty happy about how it ran.However, when I had finished a day of photography I went to download the pictures onto my computer, but Win 10 couldn't recognise Jpeg's or an other graphic extension such as raw.
When I connected my camera to the computer Win 10 did recognize the camera, so it's not a hardware issue.
I did a clean install to Windows 10, because upgrading it break the WiFi connectivity.
Now I got another issue, I noticed that the Audio Driver downloaded from Windows Update is somehow didn't sound good, if I enabled Dolby the bass is drastically reduced like no bass at all. I tried with headset and a small sound system, they both sound like a laptop speaker. The old driver couldn't be installed, the installer always failed.
I tried to use the same driver for windows 10 from another lenovo product with no different. It is not a big deal because I'm using a USB Headset. What matter is when I use a sound system to play music/movie the sound really bad. The solution for now is to disable Dolby but the sound is really low. I would like to know is there is a way to install the old driver to Windows 10 at least?
My sound card is Conexant SmartAudio other spec can be found in Sytem Spec and the installed driver version is 18.104.22.168.
Since upgrading to Windows 10 I have been unable to download photos from my mobile (not a smartphone just a Nokia with keypad) and my Sony camera. I always use one of the USB slots on my PC or a dongle on my desk which is attached to the PC and I keep getting a message saying it doesn't recognise the source. I am completely at a loss as to what to do next.
My PC is the HP ENVY TouchSmart M7-J120DX with Beats Audio quad speakers and two subwoofers. After running a clean installation of Windows 10, my volume icon had an error "no audio device output" / IDT High Definition Audio Codec. The troubleshooting option did nothing. I uninstalled my audio device, and restarted my pc. My sound is back, but it seems that the middle speakers are the only ones working. My volume icon and sound device now is labeled "High Definition Audio Device" which now sounds substandard, just like those cheap tinny speakers you can find at the dollar store. How to recover my original great-sounding original speakers!
I don't know if this started since Windows 10, but I use headphones for PC sound and if I go outside to smoke a cigarette or something I take my headphones with me so I can listen to music from my phone. When I come back and replug my headphones into my PC, audio no longer works in games, FL studio, YouTube videos, etc. Until I restart the entire program. Systemsounds work fine after replugging but audio in anything other than Windows don't
I upgraded last night from Windows 7 to Windows 10 Pro.I am connecting from work with RDP to my home PC. RDP is Working, but there is no Audio.This is an existing connection that worked yesterday when both PC had Windows 7 on them.I have checked group policy on the server and it allows audio redirection. On client it is setup to bring audio to remote pc as it has always been. Client is with updated rdp client to allow protocol 8.1 with remotefx.I don't have another pc with Windows 10 to check if this is some incompatibility between Windows 7 as a client and Windows 10 as host. I did install the official Microsoft Remote Desktop Client for Android on my phone and tried with it, but the result is the same.
I held off to upgrade to Windows 10 until I thought it was safe. My motherboard manufacture said it was Window 10 ready, so I upgraded over the weekend. Now I have no audio. This is bad, because this is our media center for our house hold. As a quick fix I purchased a replacement sound card that has Windows 10 x64 drivers on their website. I installed it today, installed the newest drivers, and still no audio. I hooked multiple speakers to it and no sound. I hooked the speakers to my TV and play a regular show, and there is no problem there. Just no audio from my computer. The additional sound card I just put on to try to get Audio working is an Asus Xonar DGX PCIE 5.1 Audio card.
I have just updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10 on my laptop and everything works fine except for videos. When I try to watch a video on Windows Media Player, I get a black screen but the audio of the video works fine. I have been using the VLC player without problems. YouTube videos for Microsoft Edge didn't work until I switched to use software rendering instead of GPU rendering. If I try to use the Film & TV for my videos, I get an error 0xc00d11cd (0x80004005) and to visit Xbox support. In the Xbox App, when I try to watch a friends video, it says the video could not be decoded. When I try to stream my Xbox, I get a black screen but the audio of my Xbox works with what I am doing on my Xbox controller. So the streaming works, but no video. i have tried everything.

I noticed the sound was off on my task bar (just installed Windows 10), anyway when I went to the control panel it said there was no audio device installed. So how do I go about installing it? I googled but all the advice was for older editions of Windows
