by on May 23, 2013

Q: I have an HP Pavilion DV6736nr laptop. I can’t figure out why my sound went out. It was working one day and the next just stopped. I installed Vista Business on it and it is a legitimate copy. I did all the updates for it and even tried installing the sound driver for it but still just says No Audio Output Device Installed. I can’t figure out why that is. PLEASE HELP!

How come my computer makes a crackling noise when it is on mute? 

by on August 8, 2012

Q: Hi,
Can anybody advise me how to get rid of a crackling noise on my PC please? I generally use my PC on mute as noise tends to interrupt my work but recently I’ve noticed a crackling almost static like noise (whilst on mute) that happens intermittently. I don’t ever have the volume up high, if on at all, so I can’t have blown the speakers. If anyone can help me find a resolution to this annoying problem I’d really appreciate it. I have an Acer.
I am a novice at anything technical so simple instructions would be great.

 
 

How come my computer gives feedback after listening to music after a few minutes? 

by on August 6, 2012

Q: I am using Windows XP and lately when I am listening to music, it cuts in and out and also, the entire program intermittently sounds like tremolo or feedback. It does it on all music on the internet no matter whether it is streaming FM or which browser I am using. I turned off the web scanning feature of Avast antivirus to no avail. The CD player sounds fine.

Any ideas?
