Desperate needing help with HP Pavilion DV7-1450us HDMI audio output

I have tried a lot of different things to get audio output to my tv with no luck. I get video output fine. I notice when right-clicking the speaker on my taskbar there is no option to enable HDMI audio output any help is greatly appreciated as we are waiting to watch a movie <_< thanks.

Hi Sez,
Try using Recovery Manager to reinstall your AMD Graphics Driver package as this will also reinstall the AMD HDMI Audio driver- the procedure for using recovery manager to reinstall Software and Drivers is detailed in the relevant document on the link below.
Recovery Manager - Windows 8.
Recovery Manager - Windows 7
Recovery Manager - Windows Vista
After the reinstallation has completed, restart the notebook.

  • Need help with PreSonus Firebox, MIDI, and inputs and outputs

    Hey everybody, I'm new, and I just recently got Logic Pro 8 and a PreSonus Firebox. I have had no trouble with recording MIDI in Logic, but I have had problems with recording audio devices, like a guitar or a bass.
    When I record MIDI, I hear it perfectly through the speakers on the Mac, and it records just fine. But the guitar won't come through. I have tried changing the core audio device to "PreSonus Firebox," in which case I still can't hear the guitar, but it records. Once it's been changed to this device, I can't hear anything else I've recorded either, like the MIDI. Once I've changed it back to "Built in input," I can hear everything, including the recorded guitar.
    So the problem is, why can't I make Firebox my input, and my computer the output, so I can play through the Firebox and hear it on the computer?
    Here is how everything is laid out: I have a Casio keyboard connected by MIDI through the Firebox, which is connected to my Macbook Pro through FireWire. There is also a guitar plugged into the Firebox. Please help, I'm really excited to start recording!

    sorry I'm not getting a few things....
    1) how do I create a midi object?
    you create the midi object in the midi inst layer of your environment. at the top left under the menu that says "new" select the very 1st thing in the list, "instrument" (midi instrument)
    2) where do I assign the midi output?
    after you create the instrument the perameters box opens on the left. you assign the port and channel there
    5) where are the audio outs?
    to what? the roland? doesn't it have audio output?
    I've been reading the manual and have tried various
    forums.... been trying to get this since last
    night.... my brain. I know it's gotta be simple...
    not real simple but not real hard either

  • Need help with control system that reduces a flat output signal every time a certain input exceeds given value

    I'm having difficulty setting up a closed loop control system that reduces one of my voltage outputs (connected to a high voltage system) by 30% every time a measured voltage exceeds a certain threshold value.  I'm using a USB 6229 DAQ.  I've been trying to create a waveform that looks like a DC signal, but the only waveforms that I can seem to manipulate while my VI is running are the stock waveform types.  Also, I've tried to use a formula node or conditional structure to update the output value every time the measured voltage exceeds a given value, but everything I do reinitializes the output value every time it runs or won't store the previous signal value.  I'm using LabVIEW 8.6 and don't have the PID or similar express VI's.  I've attached the mess I've got working right now.  Can anyone help?  I'm really stuck!
    HiV step ‏40 KB
    output ‏100 KB

    I'm sorry it's such a mess; I'm still pretty new at this.  These are both little driver programs for a larger overall control program. 
    Output control is meant to send a flat signal to the DAQ whose value can be manipulated while the VI is running.  I have the second activated segment merely to check the values being output.  I didn't realize I attached a version with a meaningless control...I had a control where the user would put in the stating voltage (the high voltage source has a 1V-100V setting for external control).  I've attached this slightly different but equally dysfunctional version.  Ideally, I would have liked something like the analog signal generator vi to come with an input wiring for offset on the DC signal.  Most of the code was diabled because it is copied from an example; it is largely rubbish.  I initially used the DAQ Assistant, but when things weren't working out I switched to putting in each step manually to try to troubleshoot.
    As far as HiV step down is concerned, I've tried something different with a nested case structure (if that's the right terminology?), and I've attached that file.  I think this problem has been solved, but you never know!

  • Need help with PCI Express X-Fi Xtreme Audio - Vista

    Hi, bought this card pci exprss x-fi xtreme audio and installed, had a lot of problems in vista 64. Using a logitech z5500 5. soundsystem and first tried using the optical spdif to get DTS etc working but to no joy... Started using the 3.5 kables but nothing there either. And I cant find options to set the treble and base? the sound is really medioker as it is now.
    Using the latest drivers for the card issued in may 08, latest alchemy and console files. what to do?

    To Collipa and Dudeface:
    If you installed the support pack for the card but still have driver problems, have you used windowsudpate under Windows 7? Creative submitted a basic driver for the card that shows up in driver options under Windows Update. If you can let Windows Update install that driver, then you can update AFTER rebooting with the new one.
    If that windowsupdate did not work, try this:
    Download the newest driver for your card. Then, if you already have winace, winzip, winrar or even the free 7Zip, then you can right click that Creative executable file and then choose to........extract to......and do so to a temporary folder on your desktop or say, c:\Creative driver.
    Then go to device manager and sound video and game controllers, and to your problem sound card, click driver, and update driver and browse my computer for software, and "let me pick"? and "have disk" and then browse to.......
    C:\Creative driver\Install\wdm
    Whereever you downlaoded the file to, the important directory is the INSTALL\WDM and choose OK and it should show Creative X-FI. Let it copy files, and it does take awhile, and then reboot and see if your sound card works.
    here is the newest driver for your card:

  • Need help with a currently "in-use" form we want to switch to Adobes hosting service

    Hi, I am in desperate need of help with some issues concerning several forms which we currently use a paid third party (not Adobe) to host and "re-distribute through email"...Somehow I got charged $14.95 for YOUR service, (signed up for a trial, but never used it)..and now I am paying for a year of use of the similar service which Adobe is in control of.  I might want to port my form distribution through Adobe in the hopes of reducing the errors, problems and hassles my customers are experiencing when some of them push our  "submit button". (and I guess I am familiar with these somewhat from reading what IS available in here, and I also know that, Adobe is working to alleviate some of these " submit"  issues, so let's don't start by going backwards, here) I need solutions now for my issues or I can leave it as is, If Adobe's solution will be no better for my end users...
    We used FormsCentral to code these forms and it works for the most part (if the end-user can co-operate, and thats iffy, sometimes), but I need help with how to make it go through your servers (and not the third party folks we use now), Not being cruel or racist here, but your over the phone "support techs" are about horrible & I cannot understand them or work with any of them, so I would definitely need someone who speaks English and can understand the nuances of programming these forms, to please contact me back. (Sorry, but both those attributes will be required to be able to help me, so, no "newbie-interns" or first week trainees are gonna cut it).... If you have anyone who fits the bill on those items and would be willing to help us, please contact me back at your earliest convenience. If we have to communicate here, I will do that & I can submit whatever we need to & to whoever we need to.
    I need to get this right and working for the majority of my users and on any platform and OS.
    You may certainly call me to talk about this, and I have given my number numerous times to your (expletive deleted) time wasting - recording message thingy. So, If it's not available look it up under [email protected]
    (and you will probably get right to me, unlike my and I'm sure most other folks',  "Adobe phone-in experiences")
    Thank You,

    Well, thanks for writing back...just so you know...I started using Adobe products in 1987, ...yeah...back Illustrator 1 & 9" B&W Macs ...John Warnock's Helvetica's....stuff like that...8.5 x 11 LaserWriters...all that good stuff...I still have some of it working on a mac...much of it was stuff I bought. some stuff I did not...I'm not a big fan of this "cloud" thing Adobe has foisted upon the creatives of the world...which I'm sure you can tell...but the functionality and usefulness of your software can not be disputed, so feel free to do whatever we will continue to pay for, ...I am very impressed with CC PS on the 64 bit PC and perhaps I will end up paying you the stipend that you demand for the other services.
    So  I guess that brings us to our problem.. a few years back and at the height of the recession and near bankruptcy myself,  I was damn lucky and hit on something and began a small arts and crafts supply service to sell my products online to a very "niche market" ...I had a unique product and still sell that product (plus others) online...My website is Yes...but there is a market it seems, for everything now, and this is the market I service...Catagorically, these are 99%+ women that use these "adhesive, sticky backed vinyl products"  to make different "craft items" that are just way too various and numerous to go into... generally older women, women who are computer illiterate for the most part...and all this is irrelevant to my problem, but I want you to have every bit of background on this and especially the demographic we are dealing with, so we can get right to the meat of the problem.
    OK...So about two years ago, I decided to offer a "plain sheet" product of a plain colored "stick back" vinyl... it is available in multiple quantities of packs ( like 5 pieces, 10 pieces, 15 pieces, in a packi  & so on)...and if you are still on my site.. go to any  "GO RIGHT TO OUR ORDER PAGE"  button, scroll down a little...and then to the "PLAIN VINYL" will see the Weebly website order process.) You can back out from here, I think,..but, anyway this product is available in 63 colors + or - a few. So then the problem is,  how do they select their individual colors within that (whatever) pack?... .
    So my initial idea was to enable a "selection form" for these "colors" that would be transmitted to me via email as 'part" of the "order process".. We tried getting our customers to submit a  " a list" ( something my competitiors still do, lol, poor bastards)......but just unbelievable..I can't even begin to tell you what a freakin' nightmare that was...these people cannot even count to 10, much less any higher... figuring out what colors to list and send me... well, lets just say, it wasn't working......I had to figure out a better way...Something had to be done.
    So after thinking this all out,  and yeah...due to my total ignorance, i figured that we could make a form with Live Cycle Designer (Now Forms Central)...(back then something that was bundled with Adobe Acrobat Pro), I believe, and thats what this thing was authored in... and it would be all good...LOL!
    Well not so you well know, Adobe Acrobat would NOT LET YOU EMAIL anything from just wouldn't work (and I know why, and all that hooey), but not being one to take NO for answer,.I started looking for a way to make my little gizmo work.. So I found this company that said they can "hijack" (re-direct actually) the request to email, bypass the wah-wah, and re-transmit it to the proper parties.....for less than $100 a year,  I think...its called
    A nice gentleman named Joseph Silva helped us program the thing to go to his servers and back out. Please dont hassle them...I need them...for basically does work...try should get back a copy of the form that you filled out...good luck however,  if you're on MAC OSX or similar...
    I have included a copy of both of our forms (and feel free to fill it out and play with it)...just put test somewhere on it...(and you must include YOUR email or it will balk)..they are supposed to be mostly identical, except one seems to be twice as large....generating a 1.7 meg file upon submission, while the other one only generates a 600K file or so...thats another issue for another day or maybe you can advise on that also...
    OK so far so good......In our shop, once Grandma buys a 10 pack (or whatever), Only then she gets to the link on her receipt page ro the relevant "selection form" ,(this prevents "Filling and Sending"  with "no order" and "no payment", another early problem we had)... which they can click on and it will usually download and open up on their device if all goes well...Then our little form is supposed to be fillable and is supposed to ADD UP all the quantities, so grandma knows how many she is buying and so forth right on the fly,  and even while she changes her mind..., and IT'S LARGE so grandma can see it, and then it TOTALS it all up for them, ( cause remember, they can NOT add)..,  except there is a programming bug (mouse-click should be a mouse-up probably or something..) which makes you click in the blank spaces to get to a correct TOTAL...about 70-80% of our customers can enable all these features and usually the process completes without problems for them especially on PC's running Windows OS and Acrobat Reader X or least for most... Unfortunately it is still not the "seamless process" I would like or had envisioned for the other folks out there that do have trouble using our form....  Many folks report to us the following issues that we know of.  First of all it takes too much time to load up...We know its there anyway that you can see, to streamline this thing? I would love for it to be more compact...this really helps on the phones and pads as I'm sure you well know.
    Some just tell us,"it WON'T work"....I believe this is because they are totally out of it and dont even have Adobe Reader on their machine, & don't know how to get it ( yes, we provide the links).....or it's some ancient one can stop this one...
    It almost always generates some kind ( at least one time)  of "error message" which we do warn them about..., telling one,  basically that "Acrobat doesnt even like this happening at all, and it could be detrimental to ones computer files", blah-blah...(this freaks grandma out really bad)...& usually they end up not even trying to send it...  and then I get calls that even you wouldn't believe...& If they DO nut up and push the Red "Submit Form" button, it will usually send the thing to us (and also back to them at the "required email address" they furnished on the form, thats what the folks at the "fillable forms place" do) so, if it's performing it's functions, why it is having to complain?. What are we doing wrong?....and how can I fix it?...Will re-compiling it or saving it as a newer version of "FormsCentral" correct any of these problems ?
    Ok, so that should keep you busy for a minute and we can start out with those problems...but the next thing is, how can I take advantage of YOUR re-direct & hosting services?, And will it get rid of the error messages, and the slowness, and the iOS incompatibilities ? (amazingly,  the last iOS Reader version worked almost OK.. but the newest version doesnt seem to work with my form on my iphone4)  If it will enable any version of the iOS to send my form correctly and more transparently, then it might be worth the money...$14.95 a MONTH you say. hmmmmm...Better be good.
    Another problem is, that I really don't need 5000 forms a month submitted. I think its like 70-100 or less....Got any plans for that?  Maybe I'm just not BIG ENOUGH to use Adobe's services, however in this case, I really don't care whose I do use as long as the product works most correctly for my customers as well as us. Like I said, If I'm doing the best I can, I won't change anything, and still use the other third party, If Adobe has a better solution, then i'm all for that as well. In the meantime, Thanks for any help you can provide on this...

  • Problem with a Pavilion dv7 - Not Booting

    I've a problem with a Pavilion dv7 wich is not booting.
    When I turn on the PC the F12 key (Wireless) is fix and red and Capslock is blinking.
    After search on the forum, I try several things, turn on PC without its battery, turn on without RAM module (2 module with no module, only on,...) but each time I obtain the same F12 red and Capslock Blinking continuously (1 per second).
    If someone have any idea to help me I stay tuned.
    Thanks In Advance,

    Hi Visruth,
    I've clean the laptop with a compressed air bomb, so i don't think it's a overheating problem.
    When I take out the hard drive I obtain the same symptoms, F12 LED Orange fix and Caplock LED flashes continuously (every 2 or 3 secondes). I did not find this combination (F12 Red + Caplock Continusly blinking) ?
    For the record, this is the laptop of my stepmother and I am sure she did not make BIOS update ...
    Anything else to help you to make the good diag ? A tools to boot with ? A hardware test to do ?

    I cannot send.  I have been at this for hours and hours and hours.  Here are the details.
    my mail server however is
    I can receive email just fine.  I can also send mail just find having set this up on my iphone and also in thunderbird (which i hate hate hate hate hate hate hate, which is why I am desperate to set up mail)
    The settings in thunderbird are as follows:
    port: 465
    Authentication method:  normal password

    However, I just can't get this to work in Mail.  When I write an email and hit send I get a popup that says:
    Cannot send message using the server
    The certifcate for this server is invalid.
    Now, my tech guy says yeah the certifacte is invalid because you are going through sistercompany server, there should be some way to just accept the certifcate anyway (but he has never used mail before).
    So I have serached around and come up with this:
    Which tells me to use the verify certificate dialogue, which I would do except there is no verify certificate dialog.  Any thoughts?

  • Need help with trim and null function

    Hi all,
    I need help with a query. I use the trim function to get the first three characters of a string. How do I write my query so if a null value occurs in combination with my trim to say 'Null' in my results?

    Thanks for the reply. What am I doing wrong?
    SELECT trim(SUBSTR(AL1.user_data_text,1,3)),NVL
    FROM Table
    I want the XX to appear in the same column as the
    trim.The main thing you're doing wrong is not formatting your code. The solution may become obvious if you do.
    What you're saying is:
    SELECT  trim ( SUBSTR (AL1.user_data_text, 1, 3))
    ,       NVL ( AL1.user_data_text, 'XX' )
    FROM    Tablewhich makes it clear that you're SELECTing two columns, when you only want to have one.
    If you want that column to be exactly like the first column you're currently SELECTing, except that when that column is NULL you want it to be 'XX', then you have to apply NVL to that column, like this:
    SELECT  NVL ( trim ( SUBSTR (AL1.user_data_text, 1, 3))
                , 'XX'
    FROM    Table

  • I need help with resetting my ichat. When i try to login now it wont let me... it says "AOL Instant Messenger password" and then "iChat can't log in to ... because your login ID or password is incorrect. How do I reset this if I cant log in?

    I need help with resetting my ichat. When i try to login now it wont let me... it says "AOL Instant Messenger password" and then "iChat can't log in to ... because your login ID or password is incorrect. How do I reset this if I cant log in? When I try to press online the same thing pops up and I have no way of logging in or asking for help.

    iChat (it would help to know which version) can accept Apple IDs as valid AIM Screen Names.
    However if you have iChat 5 or earlier you cannot use ones ending in or issued by iCloud. (they can be used in iChat 6 or Messages as these versions make a double login to AIM and Apple to allow the use of the password).
    In addition if you are using an Apple ID for an AIM Screen Name the password still needs to keep to the 16 character limit that AIM has.
    AN name can be used on any version of iChat  (Until the 30th June 2014)
    As it does not need a double check with Apple you can use it to log in to the AIM Web pages
    Login here with an AIM Name registered at AIM or and name and see if you get any suspended account messages.
    Sometimes account can be suspended. Usually because something has triggered the "Unusual Activity" item.
    About a year ago many users that travelled out of their own country found themselves suspended when they got home.
    If the Name checks out of if an Apple ID the password in known to be 16 characters or Less then do this:-
    In Lion upwards open a Finder Window and use the Go Menu whilst holding down the ALT key.
    Select the Library that appears in the menu list.
    Navigate to Preferences.
    (If you have version earlier than Lion the just navigate to ~/Library/Preferences (that's the Library in you Home - Little House icon - folder)
    Fnd (even if you are using Messages)
    Drag the file to the Trash and Restart the app.

  • Need help with Airport Express and so on.

    Ok so my main problem before getting into what I need help with here is that our MacBooks and now my iPhone 6 plus isn't staying online. Keep getting booted off and then I either have to select the network again or it will eventually go back on. If anyone has a solution or so please feel free to answer that as well. I'm running on Roadrunner with a Netgear 600 wireless router and a motorola modem. Both of which I'll leave the link to below for a better look.
    My Main Question: So I'm looking at a new wireless router mainly and possibly a new modem. I know Apple products are trustworthy but how good is the Airport Express and other Airport products. Also what is the Maximum speed and Maximum data speed for the cheapest express station and if anyone knows the speeds of the other devices it would be greatly appreciated.

    DSL Router to Netgear 5-port Switch and I used the switch to connect to Airport Extreme, TV, Blue-Ray DVD player and DirecTV Receiver.
    The AirPort Extreme base station (AEBS) is a router so it will do what you need.
    You need to reconfigure your setup. Connect the WAN port of the AEBS to the DSL router. Then connect the Netgear switch to one of the LAN ports on the AEBS. The AEBS will properly share the connection.

  • I need help with shooting in my flash game for University

    Hi there
    Ive tried to make my tank in my game shoot, all the code that is there works but when i push space to shoot which is my shooting key it does not shoot I really need help with this and I would appriciate anyone that could help
    listed below should be the correct code
    //checking if the space bar is pressed and shooting is allowed
    if(evt.keyCode == 32 && shootAllow){
        //making it so the user can't shoot for a bit

        if(currentHP <= 0)
            currentHP = 0;
            trace("Game Over");

    USe the trace function to analyze what happens and what fails to happen in the code you showed.  trace the conditional values to see if they are set up to allow a shot when you press the key

    I need to find the greatest grant year for the grant by a period parameter.
    once i find the greatest year i need to check the value of period 14 for that grant for the previous year and add it to the budget amount for that grant. however if their is an entry in the greatest year for period 00 then i need to ignore the period 14 of previous year and do this calculation current period +(current period - greatest year 00)
    hope that makes sense so in other words with the new data above. if i was querying period two of grant year 11. i would end up with $800
    because the greatest year is 11 it contains a period 0 with amount of $400 so my total should be
    period 2 amount $ 600
    period 0 amount $ 400 - period 2 amount of $600 = 200
    600+200 = $800
    if i query period 1 of grant 360055 i would just end up with 800 of grnt year 10.
    i have tried to modify that query you supplied to me with no luck. I have tried for several day but im embarrased to say i just can get it to do what im trying to do .
    can you please help me out.
    here is the query supplied by frank kulash who gracefully put this together for me.
    WITH     got_greatest_year     AS

    Hi, Miguel,
    Are you waying that, when the greatest year that has :given_period also has period='00' (or '0', or whatever you want to use), then you want to double the budget from the given_period (as well as subtract the budget from the '00', and not count the pevious year's '14')? If so, add another condition to the CASE statement which decides what you're SUMming:
    WITH     got_greatest_year     AS
         SELECT       TO_NUMBER (fgl_grnt_year)     AS grnt_year
         ,       fgl_period

         ,       MAX ( CASE
                       WHEN  fgl_period = :given_period
                       THEN  TO_NUMBER (fgl_grnt_year)
                    ) OVER ()     AS greatest_year
         FROM       fgl
    ,     got_cnt_00     AS
         SELECT     grnt_year
         ,     fgl_period
         ,     budget
         ,     greatest_year
         ,     COUNT ( CASE

                       THEN  1
                    ) OVER ()          AS cnt_00
         FROM    got_greatest_year
