Windows 7: Audio Purgatory -how i got here and why my head hurts

Audio Purgatory -how i got here and why my head hurts

(Note to self - when making a long post remember: close browser TAB not WINDOW)

It all started innocent enough - Remove a virus that SAS, S&D, AVG, and NORTON could not handle. No biggie. After all, i'm not some computer noob. I'm a seasoned veteran. This is a piece of cake for me. and sometimes i LIKE the challenge!

well, mission accomplished. the virus.....

was removed.


but what's this? The bloody thing boffed my registry! UGH.

even though i have my theme sounds, suddenly programs
start insisting they have no default device to play on.
no biggie. i'll simply de-select what my default device is, re-boot, then re-select it, and re-boot. Peice of cake

oh... wait.. what's this? no effect?
no problem. i'll download the latest RealTek drivers and reinstall my MoBo audio card.
Peice of cake! Right?

nope.

no effect.

AH HA! all of these programs use DirectX!!!!
So i simply download and re-install directX 11 from Window's Micro Soft Manhood website.

nope. it changed the error. Instead of saying "No default Device" now it says "Encountered a problem playing media" type of messages

Ok, so maybe those drivers i downloaded weren't so great.
I'll dig around in boxes for 5 hours and find the DVD that came with the motherboard and simply un-install and re-install the Chipset AND Audio drivers that came with it.
BOY I'M A SMART ONE!


no good.


OK, I'll uninstall the devices, Remove them from device manager, and re-install them after reboot.

now, i have NO sound.
none.

oh, it recognizes it has a device.
it knows i have my headphones and mic plugged in proper.
but at the same time it forgot how to yell at me.
(all my theme sounds yell at me. I think my wife did it to me )

nice to shut up the computer, but ....

if anyone can help then i'd greatly appreciate it.

i have no sound at all and no media can play.

i bet it's something simple.

The worst part? i forgot to save the bloody virus to report it to the standard websites

It's been down for 3 days. I have a business webcam meeting TONIGHT and
i won't be able to hear them talk.

please help.

Here comes the doctors report:

the "Web Help": Windows Media Player error C00D11B1

One thing I can help you with, is long posts and not losing them.
There is a plugin for firefox that saves form and forum data for you so you can recover it.

Reinstalled the AC'97 drivers.
Well i'm not getting any more "Failed to play test tone" but...
WMP and other programs still can not play audio.
Realtek Audio Manager has disappeared. reinstalling drivers has not helped.

this situation has cost me a contract and is really getting on my nerves.


updated the DXDIAG in the first post.

This may lead nowhere, but if you don't mind would you try playing a video file with this and tell me if you get any audio.
VideoLAN - VLC media player, Open Source video framework for every OS!

It doesn't use system codecs, and I have a feeling you may have a codec issue here.

no good.

system sounds APPEAR to be working - volume graphs indicate so.
but with no Realtek Audio Manager i can't tell it i have headphones in one jack, and not a left for right rear speaker (i have no front jacks)

and directX apps still can't find my device.

My advice, format and reinstall. It's obviously done a number to your box, and it seems likely that you are just going to continue to find things that are not right, screwed up or working wrong as time goes on. Meanwhile, if the virus/malware such is still present, it could be copying things like keystrokes and the like and sending it to somebody who shouldn't have that information.

pparks1 has a point as much as I hate to suggest a reformat it doesn't look like it's just a simple codec issue anymore.

Reformat and reinstall over 320gb of 3d apps, cad apps, video and dvd editing apps, zip file office and document apps, and find a way to backup almost a terrabyte of my current work projects data files just to fix a sound problem??????

Thats like trading in your BMW for a stripped chevy just because the horn dont work. There must be a fix.

That's the problem with having all your data on one massive drive as well.

Okay, if that's how it is, let's start over at the beginning.
Secure file check.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You've made sure in speaker properties that it's set this way?
