P6N Diamond X-Fi Xtreme, back audio jack not working after windows reinstall

Hi everyone,
I've been having a problem with audio since reinstalling windows. Previously under windows xp sp3 i had no issues but after the most recent reinstall of windows xp, the rear jacks for the audio aren't working despite the front headphones jack working perfectly fine. Since this was only a short term measure, i didn't bother trying to sort it out until now, when I've now installed windows 7 on the computer and the issue still exists.
I'm using the latest driver available on the msi website http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=driver&maincat_no=1&prod_no=1168 and I have also tried using the audio driver patch available on the same page.
The fact that there were no problems before a recent windows reinstall and that the issue is mentioned on the driver download page makes me think the problem is with the drivers and not with the hardware.
I searched through the forums and while a fair few people seem to be having the same issue or similar issues with audio jacks not functioning properly, i couldn't find a relevant solution for me.
Cheers,
Dave

Yep that sounds exactly like my problem. The issue lies with the on board soundcard and their vista drivers. Creatives' vista drivers are notoriously bad. This coupled with the fact their drivers won't even INSTALL on a p6n board because their drivers do not detect the onboard soundcard adds to the problem. As far as I see it there are two ways to solve this issue:
1.) Buy a front audio panel addition to your case.
I am not sure on your setup but here is one with HD audio support: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813999356
And that will fix your back panel port, and give you the option to use the front as well.
2.) Buy a new soundcard.
This is what I did after learning that the onboard x-fi isn't even a real x-fi card. I opted to buy the X-Fi gamer (cheapest of the X-Fi cards) and so far the drivers have been acceptable in vista. My non-hd front ports work, as well as my back port.
Another alternative would be to wait for MSI to release an update to the creative drivers that they provide. No guarantee on that though.

  • HP Beats Audio EQ not working after Windows 10 update

  • Mic Jack not working after Driver Update, Console unavailable, can't install

    LMic Jack not working after Driver Update, Console unavailable, can't install? I've had nothing but problems after downloading the latest updates via the auto-updater.
    I'm currently using the Creative SB X-Fi Pro Series card. I've had it for close to 6 months and have not had any issues until I ran the auto-updater last night, and while it downloaded over 250Mb of updates, all of them failed to install as described below.
    I'm running on Windows Vista Ultimate, 64-bit
    My main issue is the fact that my microphone is no longer working. I've done a lot of searching and I think the problem has to do with flexijack not being a microphone jack, but instead is an 'in-line' jack. I can no longer find my audio control console, which allows me to switch between gaming and entertainment modes, ect. The solution I found on the KB says that you can switch the blue jack on the back of the card from an in-line jack to a mic jack within the Audio console. I tried downloading it, but while going through the install, I get an error saying the files could not be found and a prompt which asks for a disk or file location. The same thing pretty much happens with all of the items I attempted to download and install.
    I was able to run console fine, as well as use my mic yesterday before I attempted any updates. I attempted the updates because since I've had the card, I've had issues where after I exit a game, all my sound will become crackly and static. Before, I would simply open up the console and switch back-and-forth from gaming to entertainment, which would fix the problem most of the time. If that didn't work, a restart would fix it, but now I've opened up a whole new set of issues.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    I also want to say that the support tickets should not require a serial number to submit a new ticket. My product is registered, so I got rid of the box which contains all that information, leaving me at the mercy of these boards...

    Hello all. Fisrt of all, this are my specs: Yoga 2 pro 13". WiFi card: Intel(R)Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260. I bought it from Best Buy on November 27, 2014. If you aquired your Yoga before this date, you may have the single band WiFi card. As many of you have experienced, I also had a bunch of issues with my WiFi connectivity and this is how I was able to solve it. At least it has been a couple of days that I haven't had any issues. The first symptom was the usual connection drops every X amount of time. For me it was about every 2 hours. I first unchecked the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" option in the Power Management tab of device manager and disabled U-APSD support in the Advanced tab of device manager. This action did not solve the problem. I then downloaded and updated the driver from the Intel web site (http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect) and this seemed to solve the drops; however, a new problem arised: Everytime my Yoga would wake up from sleeping mode, all my wifi networks were gone and the adapter showed as disabled in Device Manager. I would have to anable it to have my networks back. It was a solution but a pain the butt to have to do this everytime. After hours of reading post after post in several forums, I read a repy from Lenovo asking to try leaving the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" CHECKED if you were using the latest version of the driver. I went back to device manager and checked it back and that seems to have solved the problem. So far I haven't had any drops and everytime my laptop comes back from sleeping mode the WFi connection is still there! Here is a recap of how everything ended up: -The driver version I installed is 17.1.0.19-The driver date is 7/21/2014-In device manager|Advanced, U-APSD support is Disbled.-In device manager|Power Management, "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is checked. Hope this helps somebody else.

  • Beats Audio Control Panel software not working after Windows 10 upgrade.

    Beats Audio Control Panel software not working after Windows 10 upgrade.  the Beats sound enhancement is useless in WIndows 10. When opening the Windows 10 sound properties  I'm getting this box message: Auido enhancement problem Windows has detected the audio enhancement for the following device are causing problems: Speakers / Headphones (IDT High Definition Audio Codec) Woud you like to disable driver enhancement for this device?  IDT High Definition Audio CodecBeats Audio Control Panel version6.10.6491.02013.11.2009:43:18 Please provide some kind of fix for this?

    Well, it has been a long road on the Win 10 upgrade. At first I got the same error message as above, but after deleting the Dolby Advanced Audio v2 in Win 10 using Control Panel Programs and Features and rebooting, I got into the continual BSOD upon reboot. Here are the steps I took to at least get stable on Windows 10. First, I rolled back to Windows 8.1 using the advanced feature in the BSOD recovery options. Once back in Win 8.1, I deleted the Dolby Advanced Audio v2 using Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. Then I downloaded the Win 10 update and re-installed it. Once that completed, I updated the Intel Graphics driver under the display adapters (on my G780 it is an Intel HD Graphics 4000, and the driver can be found at  https://downloadcenter.intel.com/). Currently I am running version 10.18.10.4252 for my machine. Then, under the Device Manager, I updated the Conexant SmartAudio HD driver under the Sound, video, and game controllers. That driver is currently at 8.66.4.50 and was automatically downloaded from the web when I requested to update driver.  I also changed several others settings such as Notify to schedule restart after updates are installed instead of automatic (under Settings --> Update & Security --> Advanced Options) and Do you want Windows to download driver software and realistic icons for your devices? --> No, let me choose what to do, never install driver software from Windows Update.  After that, I shut down the machine, waited a moment and booted back up. I have no idea why this helped or if it is overkill, but I am stable and running without a fear of rebooting now. Hope this helps if someone else is having this same issue.

  • IPad 2 front and back camera is not work after update iOS 7.0.4 it gives like the resolution is not adjusted

    After updating my ipad 2 to iOS 7.0.4 , front and back camera is not working it gives like very small dots or dash. I did restore from iTunes and reset by holding on the home and sleep button, I also tried to close the app from the task bar but still all trials didn't solve the problem.

    I haven't heard of this before so I doubt it's a bug. Probably something happened during the 7.04 download.
    Backup your iPhone to iTunes and restore it as a new iphone, then restore from the backup. This will give you a fresh copy of iOS 7.04.

  • P965 Neo-F audio jacks not working.

    I've been having serious issues with the audio jacks on the P965 Neo-F board.  I have actually tried two boards, convinced the first board was defective since my speakers worked fine on other computers.  On both the current board and the last board, I did a complete clean XP install, formatting my hard drives and installing the latest RealTek HD drivers (5.10.0.5404 dated 4/23/2007, from MSI).  The first board never so much as peeped, while the board I have now has made some sounds, although I honestly don't know why.  On this board, I had a set of Altic Lansing 2.1 speakers, but because the speakers would pop and make static noises every now and again, generally only if I bumped one of the small stereo speakers or wiggled the cords on the back of it, I thought perhaps the problem was the speakers being old.
    On the current board, I tested a monitor that has speakers in it, and there was no sound.  RealTek's sound manager, which I have installed, did not recognize that there was anything plugged into the jacks even though I had a line in, microphone, and line out plugged in.  When it did recognize the lino out, it also recognized the microphone.  However, it only recognized them for no more than a minute.  The new speakers (also Altec Lansing 2.1) made one squeak for less than a second; other than that, there has been no sound at all.
    I've tried several different RealTek HD drivers from MSI, Microsoft, and RealTek, but none have made any difference.  I've enabled and disabled only to re-enable the audio device through BIOS with no success.  I've checked the volume, DxDiag, and played music--Winamp and iTunes are both making sound, but no sound is coming out.
    I'm pretty much out of ideas here.  The only thing I can think to do is get a sound card, but I don't see why I should have to do that when I'm not an audiophile and the board jacks should suit me fine.  I am quite at my wit's end with this, and would appreciate any help I can get.

    Quote
    It recognizes that I pluged something into the microphone jack but can't get the microne to work.
    This problem usually has to do with the fact that the computer case used, or to be more precise: its front panel audio connectors are not fully Intel HD Audio compliant.  Disable the Automatic Front Panel Jack Detection Function in the Realtek HD Audio Manager and retry.
    If your mic still does not work as it should, browse through the Realtek Program Folder and look for an executeable file named "miccal.exe".  Run it to calibrate your microphone.  Also, enable "Microphone boost" in the Mixer-tab of the Realtek configuration program. The top half part of the mixer Tab ("Playback") can be scrolled to the left via <> buttons.  Scroll left and localize the input jack your mic is plugged into (example:  "Rear Pink In").  Click on the Options button and enable microphone boost.
    Quote
    When I go into the mixer settings I can't adjust adjust any of the inputs - cd, mic, line etc. Although it shows places for a sliding volume adjusters but doesn't show a slider to be able to adjust the volumes of the inputs.
    That is totally normal and not a problem.  It is basically a limitation of the Realtek HD Audio Driver in combination with Windows XP.  It has nothing to do with the board.  Here is an Asus-example:
    There is nothing wrong here.  If you scroll through that output devices/jacks in the Mixer tab of the Realtek HD Audio Manager, you will find that you can adjust the input/output volume for each audio jack individually.  Doesn't make sense to adjust input volume in the output section?  Well, ask Realtek which genius designed the interface and ask him personally.

  • Audio Jack not working on iPhone 6 plus

    I  have had my Iphone for about 4 days now and just the other day I found out that my audio jack does not work. I plugged my headphones in and instead of the music playing through the headphones it just continues to play through my speakers. I have tried several different headphones and I have even tried plugging an AUX cord into it while I was in my car and still nothing. Has anyone else encountered this same issue and if so have you found a way to fix it? Or is this something that I need to fix by taking it to my local apple store?

    Given that it is practically out of the box, you should take it in and make it Apple's problem. They should fix it, replace it or refund you for a new one that works.

  • Troubleshooting Guide: Audio does not Work after a Certain Period of Time

    Hello everyone, Thanks for choosing the HP Forums! If your sound recently stopped working on Windows 8.x or Windows Server 2012, and you suspect a Windows Update is involved, then look no further! This is the troubleshooting guide that will explain how to resolve the issue! Explanation: Currently, there is a Windows update that may be causing the sound on your computer to stop working. The update is KB2962407, and it is now an “Important” update. That means that it will be installed by Windows Update unless you hide it. This thread also covers generic sound troubleshooting that can resolve "no sound" issues. Before tackling the update itself, since a Windows update may not be the culprit, there is some troubleshooting that can be done. A Round of Troubleshooting: 1. Running the Audio Troubleshooting in Windows 8 can resolve the issue. It does contain the ability to eliminate any setting that affects sound. Here are some steps on how to run this troubleshooter: a) Hold down the “Windows” and “R” key and then type “troubleshooting” and hit Enter.b) A window will open. On the left, click “View All”, then “Playing Audio”.c) Click “Advanced” and run it as Administrator. Then click “Next” to complete the process. 2. Try creating a new user account. The changes forced by the update may only affect one user. This HP document shows you how to create a new user under the “Creating a new account in Windows 8” section: Managing User Accounts and Logins (Windows 8) 3. Try a pair of headphones or external speakers. It will rule out where the issue lies if sound does not work through a second or third output device. 4. Another solution is to uninstall the driver manually then force it to be installed again:a) Open Device Manager, and go to the “Sound, video and game controller” section.b) Right-click on your audio driver and select “uninstall”.c) Restart the computer. This will force the hardware to write a new driver upon startup. 5. Finally, make sure that the remaining steps that you haven't tried from this document are attempted: No Sound from Speakers (Windows 8) New Inclusions: Disabling and enabling the sound driver has been tested with successful results enough for me to post here. These are the instructions to do this: a) Open Device Manager, and go to the “Sound, video and game controller” section.b) Right-click on your audio driver and select “disable”.c) Wait a minute, then right-click on it and select "enable" Also, A System Restore is also a valid troubleshooting step. This will return the computer to a point before the update and/or external source of the issue occurred. Here is a document on how to perform a System Restore: System Restore If you want something stronger, a Windows Refresh completely refreshes Windows 8, without affecting files: Refresh Your PC to Resolve Problems (Windows 8) Also, here is a Windows sound troubleshooting tutorial. Just out of curiosity, I re-created the issue on a Windows 8 computer and went through this tutorial. It was able to resolve the issue: No sound in Windows  *Everything in italics  is currently un-tested, but will be tested as soon as possible. I believe these steps will help: In the search bar, type "services.msc" and hit Enter. Hold down the "Windows" key and "R" key. Type "services.msc" and hit Enter. Look for the following services: - Audio Service- Windows Audio- Windows Audio Endpoint Builder I want you to right-click each of those services, and select "Stop". When they are all stopped, right-click on each one again, and select "Start". As well, make sure each service's status is "Started" and their startup type is "Automatic". Troubleshooting the Update: At this point, unless you want to reinstall the operating system, the only other option is to tackle the update, KB2962407. Please note that the following troubleshooting is ONLY a workaround, for now, and only should be done if the computer has installed this update. First, you can try the Hotfix in this Microsoft document, specifically to address KB2962407: Windows RT, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2012 update rollup: June 2014 If that doesn't help, then uninstalling the Windows Update, and then hiding it, is the only method of eliminating the issue if it caused by this update. Here is the procedure for uninstalling the update: 1. Go into Control Panel, then click on “Programs and Features”.2. Click on “View Installed Updates”. Look for the update with the ID number KB2962407.3. Right-click on the update and select “Uninstall”. Restart the computer. Next, here is the procedure for hiding the update: 1. Go into Control Panel, then click on “Windows Updates”.2. Click on “Check for Updates”. When the process is completed, is should find important update(s) available. Clicking on the message will open a window where the important update(s) is.3. Right-click on the KB2962407 update and select “Hide Update”. This will prevent the update from being installed next time Windows Updates are being installed. Conclusion:
    At the end of this guide, you will have sound working again (assuming that the cause was the Windows Update, or at least software-based). Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thanks!
    Mario

  • Y410p Front headphone and microphone jacks not working after repair

    I recently (last month) sent  my IdeaPad Y410p in to Lenovo for repairs due to the laptop not turning on, or repeatedly restarting at the BIOS screen. The laptop was repaired by Lenovo (they replaced the motherboard), and returned it to me. The laptop has worked great sincce then, except that the two USB ports on the right side and the headphone and microphone jacks do not work. I have reinstalled the audio drivers, twice, but have not reinstalled the chipset drivers at all, as I don't want to screw around with those untiol I no more about what I should do. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Talonek, welcome to the forums,
    the problem you are experiencing is probably due to the cable connecting the ports on the right side, front of system, to the mainboard unfortunately not being connected or connected properly.  Please see pdf page 52 of the system's Hardware Maintenance Manual.
    I've never taken an Y410p apart, but having looked at the manual the cable connection may well be accessible to check / fix by removing the hard drive.  Another alternative would be to call service and ask them to do this for you.

  • Backing up actions - Not working after re-install.

    I recently had hard drive issues that led to PC issues so I decided to do a full re-install of Windows 8.1 and all my programs.
    After installing Ps CS6 64-bit, when I loaded my backed up actions into Ps, some of my actions would not work.  Giving me 'missing' notifications when I ran them.  Things like 'Vignette Portrait 15%' which involved the steps - new layer, selection, feather, inverse selection, fill, set current layer (15% layer opacity is what caused this label) - this one would not work.  I understand some of the more complex ones like logo placement which involved a 'paste' step would not work, because it doesn't know where to paste from.  But then wouldn't that be the same instance after a reboot?  Because it still worked after a reboot.  Simple things like a 50% reduction action worked fine with steps - Image size (width 50% with scale styles with constrain proportions).
    Is there any way to avoid this?  Is there another folder I need to back up rather than clicking 'save actions' in the action panel?

    Updating was the first thing I did before anything else, reason being I always have problems with Photoshop and Bridge crashing unless I update it.  Something to do with my video card I think.
    Used the Adobe clean tool.
    Installed CS6.
    Ran update.
    Then rebooted.
    Installed usual third party software.
    Reboot.
    Loaded actions and presets.

  • Headphone jack not working in Windows Vista!!!

    Hi, I have a Macbook Pro 13 inch running Mac OSX 10.5 leopard. I recently installed Windows Vista through boot camp and have been experiencing some problems. I have installed all of the drivers from the OSX installer DVD (or so it seems) just like your supposed to, but my headphone jack will not work! I have tried several kinds of headphones and speakers, but no matter what I do, sound only plays through the built-in speakers. Note that the jack works perfectly when Im on the Mac OSX side. Anyone know how to fix this???

    No matter what Mac, for sound, all Apple does is 'create' or enable the device, Boot Camp doesn't include full sound driver support, for that you need to manually install/update using the proper device chipset driver (Cirrus, Realtek, etc).
