Sound Recording Is Garbled

Search the Site

Okay, so this is my work computer, and I have my phone (with wireless headset) hooked up through a Konexx USB Phone 2 PC device to the computer, in order to enable recording my phone calls (no I'm not a telemarketer, lol). The problem is, while the computer seems to be recording some form of input from the headset microphone, the sound is garbled and electronic - barely recognizable as my voice, but definitely that and not just random static.

I have spent over 2 hours on the phone with the people from Konexx, and have tried everything they could think of - nothing. This included trying a different Phone 2 PC device (which actually functions like an external sound card), a new internal sound card, etc. etc. I am fairly computer literate and have never had this much trouble finding a solution to a problem like this - please help!

I am almost positive that the problem is Windows-based, and not hardware-based. The recording software is set up fine, and the computer's built-in Sound Recorder had the same problem. If anyone has any idea how I might fix this, I would be extremely grateful.
Thanks!

I just had a virus infestation and when it was cleared out it had taken the sound with it.
There are no system sounds, beeps, bonks, or bwaa's nor anything from a web browser (e.g. no youtube)
Games, movies, media player classic, dvd player all work fine.
There is no sound control icon in the list of running programs (down by the clock, forgot what that area is called.)
I looked in device manager and there are codecs and audio drivers, but no sound card is listed, nor does a scan for hardware find anything.

How do I fix it?

Thank you for the help!

I have no sound on this computer at all, not when it starts or when it shuts down and when I try to play Windows Media Player
I get a message that it cannot play my selection because there is a problem with my sound device. I went looking for what was wrong and the program tells me that I have no device. I know I do and I assume that somehow I lost my drivers.

I am here trying to find out if anyone knows why my computer shuts down by itself. I just had a friend reformat my computer because my computer was messed up from a virus.

If anyone has any suggestions as to find out why my PC is shutting down on its own, please let me know.

Thanks in advance...

I have a USB turntable and can't get it to work as far as recording on the PC. I installed the 2 inf files but still nothing. I didn't see any files with a bak so could not change them as suggested. I would assume downloading the actual files would have helped. I seem to hear some sound on the Audacity program but it is very low and I can't do anything with it. This is the second turntable I have bought which will not feed into the pc. Any help?? thanx PG

As indicated by the title, the sound on my HP desktop computer is no longer working after a reinstall of the operating system. The sound card shows up under device manager, but under "Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices" it gives "No Audio Device was found". The directx diagnostic tool also says "No sound card was found".

I have tried to reinstall the driver for my sound card (Realtek High Definition Audio) multiple times.

The speakers can still play some system sounds (i.e. beeps) so it doesn't appear to be a hardware issue.

Im not a advanced computer person, so please be real specific on instructions.
I think I removed my volume sound driver on add and remove programs
I can access my volume control the control panel but it does nothing.
Someone please help me, im not really experienced but can follow instuctions pretty well if you explain everything in dummy terms, lol.

I have found this problem on the forums in expired posts but none of them have the solution for me.
My laptop keeps playing this sound over and over for no apparent reason. I can ignore it by switching off the sound but then I miss out on other sounds. Please, if anyone knows why this sound keeps playing randomely and how I can stop it, please let me know.
The last things I have installed on my computer are a couple of add-ons for Firefox - Adblock Plus and Flashblock. Temporarily disabling them has no effect!

I have a problem with the sound not working. The case/motherboard still makes the expected beeps, but the audio for windows and videos have stopped. I have probably made many mistakes trying to fix this. At present the sound device does not exist. The last few attempts to reload the soundmax driver have failed because the chip is no longer properly named, as I have managed to turn it into an AMD labeled component. I am not able to tell you what it was, but I know it wasn't AMD. I can probably answer specific questions about the situation, but can't give you a play by play of every twist and turn because I got lost, and am slightly burnt on the deal. I am looking for a fresh perspective from a pro, thanks for any consideration.

I am including screenshots of what I see when I view the 'Sounds And Audio Device" settings. I really know next to nothing about computers, so I would appreciate any help you can give me.

What I'm trying to do is use Fraps to record my game, my Teamspeak conversation, and my own voice at the same time. Normally I could simply enable stereo input and turn mic feedback on (So I can hear my own mic through my speakers). However, I am using two sound cards to accomplish this.

Why? I can use one card for audio through teamspeak/skype while recording the computer audio through my other card. This allows me to talk on teamspeak and skype while recording, instead of them hearing my game.

This is great to have set up as I record alot, but there is one thing missing. I want one of two things, either to have the recording also record my microphone (Which is input on a different sound card, so does not go through stereo input on the second card).

Or, I want to separate the audio from Teamspeak and Skype to the other card, except still hear it through my speakers. I thought of using a physical splitter, except backwards. I mean instead of plugging in two pairs of speakers to one input, plugging one pair of speakers into two ports.

Thats impractical in 99% of cases though, so I doubt such a device even exists. So back to plan A. Is it possible to make microphone from sound card A to come back through sound card B?


I know this might be confusing, but thats sort of why I came here to maybe get some answers. I doubt any software does this online, and if it did I wouldn't know what to search for to find it.

Hi, i am running xp with an ARTEC WRR-48-48 cd drive with a Realtec AC'97 audio card. My problem is that when i play a cd in my cd drive i cannot hear the main vocals only the music and the backing vocals. When i listen to the radio or utube everything is fine just seems to be cd's,it's been going on for a few weeks now and i have tried everything i can think of with no luck. I hope someone can help me as it's driving me crazy now.

Thanx
