Question connection delay - dedonk, dedonk, dedonk.

When I click 'connect', the first two notes of the connection sound play, pause, play, pause, play ... over and over again for different random lengths of time. I do not experience a delay on opening Setup. Yes, I'm using DirectSound. Yes, I uninstalled all of the Cyberlink programs; no change. I'm on Windows 8... any suggestions?

Default

first goto vent setup/voice-binds-speech and set the output devices all the same

then try disabling all unused audio devices:
Windows Control-Panel > Sound > Playback & Recording tabs > rt-click in the window and select "Show Disabled Devices" and "Show Disconnected Devices" > rt-click on all unused devices and select "disable"

this problem is usually corrected by either re-installing or updating the audio driver so let's start there:

Audio Driver

Check the Audio driver to make sure it is up to date. Or try re-installing the current driver.
(note: some USB Headsets do not require a driver)
(Don’t assume the driver is up to date as a newer one may have been released since the computer was built)

- If you have a brand-name PC, like Dell or HP, then check the manufacturers website for driver updates.
- If you built the PC and use the on-board sound device then check the motherboard manufacturers website for drivers for your model motherboard.
- If you use a plug-in soundcard, ex: SoundBlaster, then check that manufacturers website for drivers.

Also check for BIOS and chipset updates

When checking for BIOS, chipset and certain onboard hardware drivers, you should only check the pc (or specific motherboard) manufacturers website for your make/model. The manufacturer is responsible for maintaining the proper version of driver for their specific hardware.

For example: Realtek is an OEM manufacturer of audio chips and there are many different revisions of each. The latest driver found on the Realtek site may not be compatible with the version of chip in your pc, and could cause problems like 'stereo mix' to not be available. Realtek comments to this effect on their download page.
