Lose All Sound on Comp (XP)
Windows XP Prof SP3
Realtek HD Audio / Intel motherboard

A few mins after I connect to Ventrilo all sound on my computer stops. I can not hear anything, not click sounds, game sounds, music, nada. Nothing shows to be disabled. Ironically if in Vent in a channel people can still hear me talking.. so the mic works, but sound coming in does not. Closing vent does not remedy this, only rebooting the computer.

I updated the drivers for the Realtek HD Audio and get the same issue.

Anyone heard of this?

can you check for this plz:

[FONT=Verdana]Is your system sound configured for 5.1 or 7.1?[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana](XP - windows control-panel / sounds / click the ‘Advanced’ button in the ‘Speaker Settings’ section / speaker setup input box setting)[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana](Vista/Win7 – windows control-panel / sounds / Playback / select speaker device / ‘Configure’ button / Audio Channels)[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]If yes then:[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Goto Vent setup/voice-binds-speech tabs / SFX button / Directional / Add “Front Left & Right 5.1 (or 7.1)”[/FONT]

you might want to try re-installing DirectX - [FONT=Verdana][URL][/URL][/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]or this:[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]start / run[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]select sound tab[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]try lowering 'hardware accelleration' 1 notch[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]reboot and test[/FONT]

I had seen your info about the 5.1/7.1 in other posts and checked that before. Mine is set to "desktop stereo speaker", whatever that does =p

Trying to lower hardware accel and rebooting now.

Tried lowering Hardward Accel, same issue occurred.

Reinstalled DirectX, same issue.

The only entries in this log are from last saturday, the day I got this computer and loaded ventrilo.

2009-09-12 20:11:08 Unable to open system registry key to read data.
2009-09-12 20:54:18 CEvtText::Read, Unable to open file C:\Documents and Settings\name\Application Data\Ventrilo\
2009-09-12 20:54:18 Creating the default VET file 'C:\Documents and Settings\name\Application Data\Ventrilo\'

Just now when getting on to see if an error happened. The sound stopped in about 45 seconds from when I started Vent. Sometimes its as long as 10-15 mins. I dont see a pattern as I didnt even talk on the mic this time OR join a channel where anyone else was talking =/

are there any error messages in event viewer?

start > run

Didnt notice anything in the eventvwr pertaining to ventrilo. To check the time stamps I duplicated the problem twice and nothing is in the eventvwr about it. No errors, just info about when I restarted the computer each time.

I then removed vent and got ahold of 3.0.4 instead which is what most of the poeple I talk to on vent use. Same issue happened a few mins after I loaded it up =/

did you download the realtek driver for your mobo from the Intel website?

Holgster 09-21-2009 10:41 PM

I started with driver 5911 dated 8/5/09 that came installed and is on the disk with the intel mobo drivers that came with my comp. After having the issue last week I updated the drivers to 5928 dated 8/31/09. Tonight I deleted the drivers and put in the disk and reinstalled those. Same problem as before.
