Recording Device Screen And Steam Voice Chat Locks Up
Dec 10, 2015
Whenever I use my in-game voice chat, my game freezes for a random period of time. It's gotten to the point where sometimes my game may freeze for up to five minutes before finally recovering. It's in every single game I play. In rocket league today, whenever I used the voice chat, the connection issues symbol came up and I froze. However, subsequent uses of voice chat for a short period of time after the initial freeze won't freeze the game. I would also like to point out that the game sound loops for the duration of the freeze. I thought I cleared it up last night and then it came back? I noticed that as well when you go to the setting in steam to test the mic after you hit the stop testing mic button it loops. As well the playback setting in windows when you go to the mic locks up for a few. I have tried this as well
Well I tried uninstalling all of the sound drivers and let them reinstall and still did the same thing. I manually installed the realtek driver and it seemed to fix it but when I shut down my pc it started again. I then tried this whole run. Press Windows key + X
Click Command Prompt (Admin)
Type in at the prompt OR Copy and Paste these one at a time : (Hit enter after each)
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
When the procedures are complete exit the command prompt:
Next, do the following:
Right click on the start button and click Command Prompt (admin) Click Yes
That seemed to fix it for a night again then turned off the pc and it happened again. Then I was told to try quiet hours and it fixed it then another shut down to leave and back again. So I am still at square one I am sure it's a windows 10 issue as it's only when it's on steam and when I go into recording devices it freezes up there to and if I try to kill the close the window it gives me this Windows shell common dll is not responding then it asks me do I want to close the program or wait for it to respond.
I always use steam chat with friends and can not play without it since Cs go uses the default steam chat microphone. I use a Logitech G930 USB headset that has worked in the past, but after the 29th of October everything went downhill. List of "Solutions" I have tried: (I'l try and update it)
-Uninstalling steam/reinstalling -uninstalling mic drivers/Logitech software and reinstalling -changing default mic to the G930 -Restarting router (80mbps speed so band with is not an issue) -Restarting computer (Duh)
My Razer Tiamat 7.1 headset has a button the the controller that switches to stereo mode. I have it set up in the playback settings on 7.1 surround sound. The stereo mode works with all audio EXCEPT for the Steam chat system (works in steam games). On my playback panel it even shows that it's picking up the chat audio (the green bars). Just no sound coming from the mic. I checked the volume on the Tiamat controller as well.
I connected an audio cable to my laptop but when windows asked what the cable was i accidentally checked the box that said microphone. Now i can't change it anymore and my audio device is in the recording tab instead of the playback tab. How do i change this?
I've had this problem with my razer kraken headset with sound being played back through the mic. My friend has an identical pare that he had the same problem with. To fix it he simply went into Realtek HD Audo Manager and when to device advance settings and checked "Seperate all input jacks as independent input devices" and bam! NO more sound from his end.
I went to check to see if I could do the same and all I found under device advanced settings was playback devices. No recording devices.
I tried to install Windows 10 fresh from a usb but it said my Windows 7 key didn't work and I never got a Windows 10 key so I'm not sure what to do, the upgrade install won't login. I enter password, then proceed but it locks up. if I click anywhere after a minute the screen goes black ave nothing happens.
a: where to get the Windows 10 key so I can do a fresh install
or b: how to fix this login screen
I tried safe mode repair but it said it's unable to repair and I should restart the pc.
Trying to record KSP with the screen recorder, but it will only record for exactly 10 seconds then say 'There's nothing to record. Play some more and try again.' I have tried it windowed and then on a couple other games, same thing. Graphics driver is up to date.MVI 4064 -
I know nothing about computers other than how to get games on steam. WMI provider host is using 10-100% of my cpu. Can i just disable it, or do i need it for something? I end process, it starts again, people saying it might have something to do with CimWin32
I've recently upgraded to Windows 10 via USB (using the download from the microsoft website onto USB and upgraded all my computers). All went well and smoothly, but unfortunately, when I went to start up Dota 2, my screens went black (as normal) but didnt load up the game. It seemed like it just crashes before it even loads anything. I thought that it was a bit weird, so i tried launching Garry's Mod, that did the same thing. I tried Warframe, as that opens a window before you enter the game, but that worked.
Not sure whats going on, heres my PC specs.
CPU - Intel i5 4570 GPU - GTX 780 Gigabyte 3 1080p monitors Motherboard - Z87 Gigabyte (z87m-D3HP to be exact)
I had a question about windows 10 and the Xbox one. I heard you could steam Xbox one game's from the X1 to the PC. I was wondering could you steam Xbox one games from the PC ( using PC hardware ) and steam it to the X1 ??
I recently downloaded windows 10 and am currently using it, since then whenever I boot up geometry dash from steam, the games music would be replaced by the sound of crackling which is very bad. I have a texture pack installed on geometry dash.
I am using HyperX Cloud II headset and it's been working perfectly for about a month but this morning it isn't working. I have set it as the default device in playback and recording in the audio settings.
I'm about to buy a new Win 10 gaming rig and wanted to transfer my entire Steam programs + files (most of the games I currently play are *unfortunately* on STEAM) from my old Win 7 rig using an external HDD.
I don't know if this is only me or not, but my Voice Recorder app cannot be started. Here I included all the screenshots of the weird behavior of this Voice Recorder app in Store page.
At first, when I search Voice Recorder and open the store page, it will show downloading, then after that an update button appear, after I click that update button it will show small download icon at the top left side of my account profile picture. After a short while it'll disappear and still Voice Recorder app cannot be opened. This weird behavior keep repeating every time I open the Voice Recorder store page.
Cortana has worked fine for a few days, and then I stopped using her for a while, she was responding to my voice and "Hey Cortana"...
Now she doesn't respond to that, but I have to click on the mic icon and then I ask, and after that she responds to 'Hey Cortana" as well... I didn't change any settings or anything like that?
Now it seems that when I ask anything, she says something like "sorry, me and internet aren't talking right now" . I have switched from my Wi-Fi to my Ethernet connection few days ago, my router died .. and this seems to happen once only also...after that, she responds fine....
I have changed my router. Is a 'FritzBox fon WLAN 7170'. First i connected, it was all good, i tried to connect to browser and it was good. Then i tried to connect Steam. "Could not connect to the steam network, either check your connection and click 'Retry' or start Steam in offline mode."I looked up for the probem, tried to:
- start the shortcut with -tcp - turn the firewall off - remove Steam from processes - uninstall Steam and install it again. - delete all files from Steam (without steamapps folder)
I tried other games online, they don't work either..I saw that video - Fritz!Box Firewall Port forwarding - YouTube (is 3:22 minutes long, if you want to watch it)I saw on the internet i can connect to the router settings with WIFI connection and i can't connect (CMD - ipconfig - Default Gateway in the browser).
Do i need to port forwoard all of them ?Is the Dynamic DNS the case?Why is the IPV6 with "No network access"? -Is the IPV6 important for online games?Do i need to set IPV6 ON?
I record videos sometimes with this just for fun but it seems every time i watch them, it never records my voice. It records literally everything else playing on my computer (even other people's voices) but not my voice. My headset has a mic on it and it works so I don't know what would be wrong.
I am plugging earbuds with a microphone into my computer. (I have tried every 3.5mm port on the computer and speakers, none work). Where ever I plug them in I get a notification saying something was plugged in. Can hear sound out of the headphones only when plugged into the speakers but I can not record voice audio.
So today my mic suddenly stopped working. It no longer picks up my voice, but instead if I log on to Skype, Mumble or other voice communication services I constantly transmit any sound currently going through my PC, be that music, youtube videos, game sounds or anything else.I've checked that my mic is set to the correct default device and I've even tried uninstalling and reinstalling all sound related drivers.
The problem came out of the blue. It was fine yesterday and then today when I booted up and logged on to Skype to talk to a friend he couldn't hear anything until I started playing some music which he said he could hear as if he was playing it himself. So it's not just the mic picking up sounds from my headset (which wouldn't make sense anyway since it won't pickup my voice). I then tried to do a Skype test call with some music running in the background and as I expected the playback was the part of the song that had been running during the test call. So basically as stated my computer is suddenly transmitting sounds as if they are being given as input through the mic and no longer registers any outside sounds like my voice, or any background noise in the room etc through the mic.I also know it isn't the mic itself that is the problem as I tried hooking it up to my laptop and it worked perfectly fine there.
my game volume and my chat volume are mixed so that when I turn up my chat volume, my game volume also turns up. when I turn up my game volume, it doesn't turn it up, but when I turn up my chat volume, it turns up both my game and chat volume. How can I fix it so that my game volume and chat volume are different?
