PAvillion DM4 Sound constantly skips when playing music

My HP Pavillion constantly skips when playing audio
Any suggestions?

Hi,
you may need to update the audio drivers and Intel Rapid storage driver(if applicable) from hp.com.
Please visit www.hp.com/in and select suport & drivers>drivers & softwares> type the the complete model of your PC such as dv6-6100 dv6-3100 etc... select your computer model (if listed), or select the CTO(such as dv6-6100 CTO) model(which works for whole series) now select the OS you are running. you have the list of drivers for your PC.
hope it helps, Good Luck !!!

  • Skipping when playing music via AirPlay from iPad to pioneer avr.

    I'm having skipping issues when trying to AirPlay music from the iPad to pioneer avr using AT&T uverse 2wire router/modem. 
    Any advice as to the cause?  I have a sinking suspicion that it's the uverse router.  By the way,  I have the fastest Internet option that AT&T is offering.

    Also,   This only seems to happen when using the iPad2.  When I use my iPhone the skipping doesn't occur.

  • The sound quality of my speaker suddenly got really poor when playing music or videos.  Sounds like an old AM radio or Sputnik.  Pretty sure it's hardware related but maybe not.  Thoughts on what the problem might be and if it can be repaired?

    The batterys the ipods come with are very sensetive somtimes they dont react right to the first couple of charges. Try fully charging it and then leaving it on until its completely drained a few times. If that doesnt work it might be a lemon.

  • The sound on my iPhone 4S cuts out when playing music/podcasts.

    The sound on my iPhone 4S cuts out when playing music/podcasts.  If I unplug and replug in the headphones, the sound comes back on, but often for only 20 seconds or so before cutting out again.  Sometimes it will play for 15-20minutes before cutting out.  The track is not "paused", and appears to continue, just no sound.  I tried cleaning the headphone jack with compressed air to no avail.  I also noticed the the same phenomenon occurs when I sync my bluetooth to my car audio.  That is, it will play for a while, then the sound will cut out, even though the track is still shown to be playing.  If I reset the bluetooth, the sound comes back on.
    This started happening about a week ago, but no "event" that I can think of caused it.  I didnt' get the phone wet, forcefully drop it, or leave it in extreme heat.  I've tried doing a reset of the phone.  I also was running iOS5 when I first noticed this, and since upgraded to iOS6.  The problem appeared with both.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Steve

    One thing that helped was getting a toothbrush and scrubbing the dock connector on the phone.  I scrubbed the connector and used compressed air for about 1/2 hour till the connector looked much cleaner.  An Apple employee told me that the pins on the phone had a little corrosion and sand.  The problem hasn't gone away completely, but has been significantly reduced.  I'm going to hold out until my contract expires after which time I'll switch to an iPhone5 (or newer) or Android phone.

  • My iPhone 4 has no sound when playing music or videos-help please?!

    Hi - my phone has stopped having any sound when playing music or videos, no volume bar either. No key noises either - but I can live without those!! I can hear sound through headphones, though sometimes that's intermittent. I have tried cleaning ports, restarting it, restoring it, pressing right hand corner of screen, taking headphones in and out repeatedly, pressing speaker twice whilst making call, blowing air into charging port, flicking volume switch on and off on side etc yet nothing has worked. Please can anyone else help? Apple want £135 plus vat to service it which isn't worth it in my opinion!

    Is the mute switch on?
    Is Do Not Disturb mode enabled?

  • I have no sound when playing music but ringtones and speak phone works!

    I have an iPhone 4s and all of a sudden I cannot hear any sound when playing music or watching tv etc via my phone but I can hear my ringtone and text etc and I can also hear calls if I place them on speakerphone!
    I have performed a hard reset and also plugged my phone into iTunes but this still hasn't solved the problem.
    Unfortunately my phone has a cracked screen....totally unrelated to the sound problem as everything was working fine after I dropped the phone, however, as I have been informed, this has now invalidated the warranty from apple, even though I am not asking them to fix the screen, just the speaker, therefor I am not entitled to a new phone from apple! Anyway.....if anyone out there can help me in anyway, or can suggest anything that I can try to fix this problem, please, please let me know.
    Many thanks in advance.

    My headphones work by the way.
    Also, when I try to increase, or decrease the volume when playing music or trying to listen to something....even my videos, the buttons on the side do not adjust the volume or attempt to adjust it. I have gone into settings and sound and made sure my phone is not on mute and made sure the setting is checked so that the buttons on the side control the volume! I just don't know what to do!

  • Can smbody please tell me what to do to my iPhone 4s, when playing music or ringer, the sound will just stop without stop it.. I am really getting tired of this...

    Can smbody please tell me what to do to my iPhone 4s, when playing music or ringer, the sound will just stop without stop it.. I am really getting tired of this...

    After updating to iOS6, I lost all sound for apps like YouTube, Netflix, games, and even notifications. The only time sound worked was during a phone call or when the head set was plugged in.
    I did a full back up and restore- sound restored but only for a day before the problem returned.
    Called Apple Support and was advised to do another restore, but this time restore it as NEW first, then do the restore from back up.
    Seemed to do the trick.
    Here are the instructions of what I was given- hopefully this will help you too:
    Here is a link about backing up your iPhone with iTunes.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1766?viewlocale=en_US
    Once you back up your device you will want to restore it.
    You will need to have iTunes open on your computer screen.
    Please turn your iPhone off.
    Press and hold the Home Button.
    Continue to hold the Home Button as you plug you iPhone in to the usb cable.
    You will want to continue to hold the Home button until you get a screen with the message "device found in recovery mode".
    Please follow the prompts and restore device as NEW.
    once the restore is done you will have to set up the device and test the sound.
    If it works you will then need to restore the device from the back up to restore your user settings.
    You can find the instructions how to restore from back up also from the the link I provided.

  • No sound when playing music iPhone 4s and not charging right on some chargers.

    No sound when Playing music on iPhone 4s and issues charging on some chargers. This below worked for me - Thanks.
    No sound only when playing music. 2013 11:05 PM.  My wife had the same issue with her iPhone 4.  The volume bar was grey inside the music app and the volume buttons on side of phone didn't work.  Cleaned out the charging port using rubbing achoal and a Q-Tip.

    Hi
    I have the same problem. iPhone 4S with newest update. No sound while playing music (grey volume buttons). No sound for alerts e.g. incoming SMS.

    Issues is still open. All contact cleaned (ear-phone etc.)
    Please help.
    With kind regards,

  • Hp stream 13 buzzing sound when playing music and watching videos/movies.

    I recently bought my HP Stream 13 and everything was fine. Suddenly, whenever I watch or listen to music online and offline, I get this buzzing sound from my speaker. Even through my headphones and when I connect to a TV Monitor through HDMI. It's really gettting annoying. Please help.

    Hi @21coldones ,
    Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have looked into your issue about your HP Stream 13 buzzing sound when playing music. Have you restarted the Notebook without the headphones and external HDMI removed?
    Here is a link to resolve headphone and speaker issues in Windows 8. Using the Microsoft troubleshooting tool to be the most helpful.
    Please make sure your updates have been done on the Notebook. In the device manager under sound right click and update the driver. Here is another step to try.
    1. Right click the Speaker icon in the bottom right corner by your time.
    2. Click Playback Devices.
    3. Click Speakers/Headphones.
    4. Click Properties.
    5. Click the Advanced tab on the Properties window.
    6. Change the Default Format drop-down to the highest quality.
    7. Apply the properties.
    8. Click OK to close the properties window.
    9. Click OK to close the Playback Devices.
    Here is a link to the HP Support Assistant if you need it. Just download and run the application and it will help with the software and drivers on your system at the time of purchase.
    Hope this helps with the sound.
    Thanks.

  • No sound when playing music and video on the new iphone 3gs (32gb)

    I have a problem with no sound when playing music or watching video both on the ipod part of the phone and when watching youtube videos, all other sounds are working fine on the phone(eg Apps, phone calls/rings and system sounds. If i reset the phone everything apears to work fine again for the first minute or so but when i stop a video or tune for a second and try going back to it, the sound is gone again. All settings are fine. Anyone having the same problem or any idea how to fix it?
    Thanks

    You could try either a Backup Restore or a Clean Restore. I usually do a CR with MobileMe as the restore source. Afterwards I reload the music, videos and apps.
    It could be a sound playing bug like the Bluetooth bug that bites me now and then (audio stops and goes once in a while, audio gaps in the video if the video is paused, and videos recorded have the audio very quiet).

    Do you have Logitech Gaming Software installed?  If so, uninstall it and see if it resolves the issue.

  • Downloaded new format yesterday and now when playing music the sound is low for first few seconds of each subsequent track. Is this a bug?

    Under new format when playing music each track after the first starts in low volume then kicks in within 3 seconds. very irritating. is this a bug?

    I'm having the same issue on my iPad (the "new iPad" / 3rd gen with retina display and 30 pin dock connector) after downloading iOS 7 (is that what you meant by the new format, updating to iOS 7?).
    The music will play quietly for a few seconds then it will play at the volume it's supposed to.

  • When playing music from Ipod in my car, music suddenly stops and message appears to restore in iTunes.  After a few minutes, it starts to play again.  I hear a click and the apple logo shows on the screen.  Any ideas??

    You may need to do a Restore in iTunes.
    Clicking sounds from an iPod that has a hard drive is probably not a good thing.  It is possible that your iPod's hard drive is becoming unreliable.
