My computer wont play music but it plays the start up and shut down noise. why?

well the subject name is self explanatory and sums it up in one sentence but in depth.....
i was listening to music one day and the sound started to cut out and get static-y almost. after a couple of seconds of that the sound stoped playing all together but the song itself was still playing through. at first i thought it was just my itunes so i tried to listen to something on youtube when that didnt work i tried adjusting the volume settings, switching it from headphones (which didnt work either) and back to speakers, restarting the computer, googling, calling both my neighbor and boyfriend. still couldnt figure it out; still couldnt get it to work. frustrated, i stoped using my computer for a week. one day i decided to play a game on it and the start up noise came on while powering up so i went to see if my music was working again. still nothing. i began playing a game later on in the day and the sounds of the game worked every so often but still no music! im tired of not having my music so please help!!!!!

  • My computer try's to download something at the starting screen and shuts down

    I turn on my MacBook Pro and it goes to the apple logo with no problems, After a few seconds a little download bar shows up and try's to install something. The progress bar gets a tiny bit of the way through and my Mac just shuts down. I've tried it a couple times and I get the same results... Please help!

    Reset the PRAM
    If the problem persists try reformatting the hard drive, and reinstalling OSX
    Here's a link for reformatting and reinstalling: http://www.ehow.com/how_8096165_format-disk-reinstall-os-x.html
    If you need disks, call 1-800-MY-APPLE.
    Good Luck!

    my computer displays grey screen and apple logo for 10 minutes or more during start up and shut down. sometimes it refuses to shut down . this issues started after installing OS lion. what do i do?

    I don't think it's exactly an incomplete installation brody, but most likely in-correct permissions somewhere along the line that either happened, or became magnified during the upgrade. Also, it could be corruption as well.
    First thing to do, is boot up holding down Shift key to do a safe-boot so we an clean up any corrupted OS caches, after that do another reboot, but go to the Lion recovery, and scan the HD for errors, repair any if you find them, and then try to do a Repair Permissions job.
    That should fix the issue, if not, we can start doing a PRAM reset  and SMC for good measure.

  • TS3474 I play music but it takes ages to load and I only have 250MB of data for music

    When I use my iPod I have 3.3GB left memory on a 8GB iPod touch 4th generation and when I play my music it always takes ages to load. I have deleted loads of stuff and I only have 250MB of music but it still takes ages. Why does this happen?

    What do you mean by: "it always takes ages to load"?
    Withut more specific information all I can suggest is the standard fixes:
    Try:
    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Reset all settings
    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
    - Restore from backup
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.

  • Phone running slower, cant play music when I swipe the screan up and it shows the player. the play button nothing works.

    Since this update:
    Phone running slow
    Phone gets stuck or freezes
    used to be able to double click home button to play music (no longer) now I have to swipe upwords to get player on screen. When I hit play button and nothing...
    Battery seems to run low faster

    I should mention that I also did a restore hoping that would solve the problem but it did not, and it was after this that I lost some of my music. 

  • How can I save to web without getting error messages and having my computer tell me there is no memory or freezing up and shutting down? I've read many other suggestions but have tried those things and none have worked. I have photoshop 12.

    Photoshop: Selecting Save for Web gives error: "Could not complete this operation. An unknown operating system error has occurred."
    I have tried all of the solutions I've found, but none work for me or my two systems (windows 7 and windows 8.1)
    Many times I get the message only when saving a web file that there is not enough memory: My windows 8 has 2 TB and 10 Gigs of ram. I took it into the shop to see if something was wrong with the hard drive or ram, but when I hooked up my windows 7, I'm having the exact same issues. Please help.
    I tried this:
    I set ram to 100%, I changed my preferences in editor to not run anything to do with auto analyzer, I renamed the file auto analyzer to put a space in as someone said to do... I even did the following...
    Reset Photoshop's Save For Web preferences:
    1. Quit Photoshop
    2. Delete the "Adobe Save For Web 12.0 Prefs" file:
    Mac: Users/[Username]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Save For Web 12.0 Prefs
    Windows XP: Documents and Settings/[Username]/Application Data/Adobe/Save For Web/12.0/Adobe Save For Web 12.0 Prefs
    Windows 7 and Vista: Users/[Username]/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/Save For Web/12.0/Adobe Save For Web 12.0 Prefs
    Whenever I "save for web" and save something to the root of C:/ it will work, but the next time I "save for web" it produces the error. I was able to fix it by going into User Account Control settings and scaling down to "never notify." It requires a reboot, but the next time I "saved for web" it worked fine.
    If you do this, be sure to change the UAC back to "default" as it is a security measure.
    FYI you will have to restart anytime you tweak UAC.
    To change UAC in Win 7 go to control panel>Action Center>Change User Account Control Settings and drag the slider to "never notify."

    Try this: press F10 or tap the Alt key to display the menu bar temporarily, then
    View > Toolbars > Menu Bar
    If that doesn't work, you could reset your toolbars to factory default using Firefox's Safe Mode. First, make a backup of your computer for safekeeping. To back up Firefox, see [https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Backing+up+your+information Backing up your information].
    Next, start Firefox in Firefox
    [http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Safe+Mode Safe Mode], and check only the box to reset toolbars. Be careful not to "reset" anything else if you didn't back up.
    Hope this helps.

  • Computer "hangs" at start up and shut down

    when i start up my computer, it takes more time than it should (i think) to start up, and then after login my desktop will appear, but several seconds pass before I can begin using anything.
    At shut down, once the screen boes blue, it hangs for close to 30-45 seconds (at least) before finally shutting off. im not sure how to address this. last time i was in a store (for a different problem) the genius mentioned he thought it was odd that it did that (but didnt really have any advice or thoughts on why)
    I am running Panther now, but this was also a problem with Jaguar as well.
    thoughts?
    thanks

    Hi Jennifer,
    Several ideas:
    1) Reduce or eliminate your startup items. Some of them can increase your startup time by a few seconds.
    2) Do you have Classic starting up on boot? If you do, turn it off. I think you can change that Classic preferences.
    3) Are you connected to any remote systems? If so, close those connections.
    HTH,

  • Computer from Sleep now starts up and shut downs, starts up shut down, ...

    Computer had been running this morning and I was away for a couple of hours.  When I returned I found that my HP S5780t was shutting down then starting up again, then shutting down, starting up, ...  Power supply LED shows green, disconnected hard drive and DVD drive and same condition exists. BIOS screen does not show up.   All three fans working properly.  Monitor shows initial HP screen but machine shuts down before anything can happed.  Tried F10 but machine still shuts down.  Machine will continue in this mode until I press and hold the power button for several seconds.  Looks at some other messages regarding this issue but did not find anything that solves my problem.
    Thanks,
    This question was solved.
    View Solution.

    I called tech support regarding repair options and they mentioned $299 to fix it no matter what the problem.  This does not sound like a bad deal.
    I'll wait until my new computer arrives, move the information from the dead computer's hard drive to the new one and then send in the unit.
    Thank-you for your help.

    My Messages and Facetime applications say my apple ID or password is incorrect when it works for other applications including icloud, and works on the apple id website. I have reinstalled Mountain Lion upon request of an apple advisor but there is still no luck and other apple IDs work on the applications. Why is this happening?

  • Tried to connect my ipod to TV through USB. Can play music but the TV cant detect video files

    Hi. I have an ipod nano 4th generation. I am obsessed with Doctor Who but unfortunately I do not have BBc America. I watch from itunes on my PC. I would like to sync the shows on the ipod and watch on TV. I am aware i can purchase apple's A/V cable, but i have found that my TV also has a USB port. I plugged in my ipod and four menus came up, "video" "pictures" "music" and "settings". I can play music but the Tv wont find the video files on the ipod.
    Thanks!!!!

    iTunes Match on your computer can give you the same higher quality files. 
    Run iTunes on your computer.  Show your music library by Song in list view.  Add the columns for Bit Rate, Kind, and iCloud Status to the list view.
    Any song that is shown as Matched for iCloud Status, that is NOT already 256 kbps (or higher) for Bit Rate can be downloaded from iCloud at 256 kbps AAC.  For example, if you have an old album from a music CD that you ripped years ago at 128 kbps MP3, and it is "matched" by iTunes Match, you can replace the lower quality files you have now with 256 kbps Match AAC audio file (which is shown for Kind).
    To do so, select the song, or a set of songs, on the library list.  Press Delete.  Confirm you want to delete the song (but do NOT check the box to delete song from iCloud) and choose to move song file to the Trash.  The songs remain on your iTunes library list, with a "cloud" download button next to the song name. 
    Click that button to download the song from iCloud.  Because the song is Matched, you get the replacement as a 256 kbps AAC audio file, instead of the original 128 kbps MP3 file (or whatever lower quality format it was before).
    You can go through your iTunes music library, and replace lower quality Matched songs with higher quality versions, thanks to iTunes Match.

  • How do I add my new lapttop to my family iTunes? I downloaded music, but cannot play it

    How do I add my new lap top to my family iTunes? I downloaded music, but cannot play it on my laptop

    There's a couple of ways to get through to the authorisation controls in the 11.0.x versions.
    The control is still in the Store menu, but first (if you're using iTunes versions 11.0.x) you might need to bring up the menu bar to see the Store menu.
    If you're using 11.0.x, click on the wee boxy icon up in the top-left corner of your iTunes to see the "Show Menu Bar" control, as per the following screenshot:
    Then you'll find the control in the Store menu:
    Alternatively, if you don't want to bring up the menu bar, it's still possible to get into the authorise controls via nested menus accessible from the wee boxy icon. Here's a screenshot of where to find them:

  • TS3694 No sound and ringer button not working. I cannot play music but when I put my Iphone 4 on the dock it plays music. This happens when I updated my phone to IOS 6.1.3..The phone doesnt have any carriers we only used this just like Itouch. Please help

    Please help. Since I updated my Iphone4 to ISO 6.1.3...The ringer button not working, can't play any music (but ok with the dock), headphone sound is muffled. What can I do? I tried restoring and downgrading but it won't let me.

    Hi there,
    Thanks for reaching out to the community.
    Please help. Since I updated my Iphone4 to ISO 6.1.3...The ringer button not working, can't play any music (but ok with the dock), headphone sound is muffled. What can I do? I tried restoring and downgrading but it won't let me.
    It appears like you may have a hardware issue with your ringer button and internal speaker that came to light after the update. If you have already restored your iPhone back to factory settings using iTunes, you may need to have your phone serviced.
    Some potential good news... Check your headphone jack for lint. There may be enough to cause a muffled connection. You can try to blow it out with compressed air or very carefully pulling out any solid objects that may affect the connection.
    Best of luck!
