Dell :: E6400 Digital Audio Out

Sep 21, 2009

Is there any reasonable way to get digital audio out of the E6400? IE without adding a usb sound card or something. I thought the displayport would send the digital audio to my Dell 3008 display but does not work.

Acer :: Audio Digital Output For Notebook

Dec 24, 2007

type of connector needed for digital audio? I have not been able to confirm that my Acer 7720-6395 NB has a dual digital connection. The manual calls the jack a S/PDIF but looks like and allows a stereo plug to work. Talking to the folks at the Sony store claims that the jack could be a dual connector and would work with a headphone or a optical connection. Would love to watch a blue ray movie with 5.1 sound......

HP/Compaq :: SoundMAX Integrated Digital HD Audio Drivers

Aug 19, 2009

i just bought a fatal1ty headset and now im experiencing some minor problems with my sound. obviously the soundcard makes them since i installed the newest software and drivers for the headset.

until now i was using the driver i got from my notebook's download page by HP, version from 05.02.2008.

now i looked through the net and found quite a lot of these soundmax drivers, but im not sure which one to take..

i learned that the 6.### drivers are for vista, and the 5.10.02.### drivers are for xp x64. so i need a 5.10.1.#### one, preferably newer than 5220. now on the page i found them (, there are quite a lot of these drivers (218 to be exact) and sorting them by the release date confuses me a bit, since the newest 5.10.1.#### driver is, but a bit earlier was released. so which is the newest one?

and all are from 2008.. are there really no newer ones? on the official soundmax page there are none, even no support section.

the device id is HDAUDIOFUNC_01&VEN_11D4&DEV_1981&SUBSYS_103C30C5& REV_10024&1D8C0F4E&0&0001, since one cannot identify the exact device from the name...

Sony :: Raltek High Definition Audio No Digital Output

Apr 10, 2009

I have the following problem:
Sony Vaio VGN-FW370J with Win Vista Home Premium 64 with Aptio Utility.

I do have realtek hd audio card and this card should have digital output. My gf has a toshiba satellite with the same card and she has it but I don't. I called sony and they replied (twice with different technicians) that this feature is not available on this model. Both audio cards have the same chip so I suspect that this feature is disabled hw.

It is not a driver problem. The driver does not install the Realtek Audio Manager so within the OS there is no way to enable it.

Sony :: VAIO FW11S HDMI > Digital Optical/coaxial Out (24bit Audio Listening)

Mar 26, 2010

I would like to listen 24bit music from my Vaio to the iBasso D10 portable amp which I'm going to purchase. This has a USB connection which only supports audio up to 16bit 44.1khz, but through the digital inputs (optical or coaxial) it supports 24bit input.

The Vaio FW11S only has an analogue headphone jack, and a HDMI output. Is it possible to get 24bit digital audio from my HDMI output to the digital inputs on the iBasso?

Is there a HDMI > optical or HDMI > coaxial converter/cable/plug/etc. available, and what would be a very good quality one?

how about this? [url]
Will this support playback of 24bit FLAC files through the optical out?

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 (1640)Dolby Digital Through HDMI Possible?

Feb 5, 2010

So as the title states, I am wondering if it is possible to play a video with audio encoded in Dolby Digital on my laptop, pass it through to my TV via HDMI, then out via optical to my receiver. I have a friend who owns a HP business laptop with a SoundMAX sound card, but also an ATI graphics card. We are both running the Realtek ATI HDMI 2.39 drivers, I have the latest drivers from Dell for the IDT sound card on my Studio XPS 16 (1640). He says (and I've seen) he is able to do Dolby Digital this way through an option (see attachment).

However, I do not have this same "Custom" tab / option, and we are running the same driver version (at least to my knowledge). Can anyone help me in finding out if this is doable, and if so, what software (and versions) are required?

Dell :: XPS M1530 + Western Digital WD5000BEVT Clicking Noise

I also don't want to hear my damn drive clicking all the time. I've done some digging and apparently WD has released a firmware update for this drive to fix the issue.

However, I cannot find this anywhere. Does anybody know where I can get a hold of it?

Apple :: The Mac Digital Divide

Jan 26, 2010

I've noticed that almost all Mac users fall into 1 of the following 2 categories:

1) People who know everything about OS X. This group seems to be split 50/50 between old school pre-Intel Mac users and Linux users who switched to OS X.

2) People who know nothing about computers. I'm talking about the kind who somehow manages to download the Windows version of Firefox and then can't understand why it doesn't work...

Where's the happy middle ground? There seems to be a lack of Mac users who can't recite all the chmod parameters by heart, but still understand that the comet cursor crapware from a Flash banner ad won't install no matter how many times they click on it.

Dell :: Security Flaw In Studio's Digital Persona Fingerprint Software

Jan 16, 2009

There is currently a major security flaw in the DigitalPersona software used by the Studio's fingerprint reader, whereby a user can launch Internet Explorer (or the default browser) without logging on to the system.

If you have the software installed now, go ahead and give it a try. Either log off, or lock the system and then click "Swipe you finger to unlock" account, and then "Enroll Fingerprints".

Finally right click on the animation in the wizard and select "About Adobe Flash Player", launching Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Apple :: Converting LP To Digital Then Filter Out Noise

Apr 30, 2010

I need to import some LP's to digital format. At one time I had a program that allowed me to filter out any hiss or noise without degrading the recording. But sadly I can not find that program now. So is there any filters that come with GarageBand or can be added to do this. Or any other application that will work with a mac.

I need to import 100+ LP's. I will be using a preamp to take the phono players output directly into my MBP.

I have recently purchased a Dell Studio 14 laptop with Western Digital WD3200BEVT 320 GB 5400 rpm HDD. I installed Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex 8.10 immediately after purchasing it.

I am aware of the Load_cycle_count issue and would like to fix it. But with so many threads on the topic available on the net, I am a bit confused.

Has anyone applied the fix on the Studio Laptop with the above HDD yet? If yes, can anyone please share their experiences/caveats etc. so that I can confidently go ahead and apply the fix .....

HP/Compaq :: HP Mini 1140NRVivienne Tam Digital Clutch Edition

Aug 24, 2009


The HP Mini 1000 Vivienne Tam Edition first caught my attention for its beautiful Peony design. HP teamed up with New York based designer Vivienne Tam to create a fashion forward digital clutch. The Vivienne Tam edition is a compliment magnet where ever you take it and the matching accessories make it even more attractive. However, don't let this fool you as a digital clutch is just a fancy name for a netbook which is what this HP mini boils down to.


The specs of the Vivienne Tam Mini are very similar to the ho-hum specs of all the other netbooks out there. However, where most other netbooks use small SSD's or average size 2.5 SATA Hard drives the HP Mini uses a 1.8 inch PATA ZIF HDD.

Intel Atom N270
10.1 LED Back lit LCD display (1024x576)

What's in the Box:

This unit was purchased as a refurbished model from so not everything was included. The box included the HP mini, a power cord, 30 watt AC adapter, and Recovery DVD. The only thing not included is the silk like sleeve that accompanies the retail version. However, at $380 USD for a refurbished model versus the retail $700+ the sleeve will hardly be missed.

HP/Compaq :: HP 8510p HDMI, Passthrough Dolby Digital, DTS To Amp --->

Oct 20, 2009

I have a HP 8510p (XP32) that works really fine. The only thing that I can not make it happen is that whatever I try I can not get the DD, DTS work between my laptop HDMI and my receive. I recieive only stereo (Audio HDMI OUT is selected).

1) How on earth can I get DTS/DD from my laptop HDMI when i play a mkv with DTS/DD audio?

2) If I connect the laptop to the TV via HDMI and the laptop to my amp via optical, can it make the trick? (the only problem here is that, my laptop does not have optical out, just HDMI and analog, but using a docking station i can have optical out...)

Acer :: Dolby Digital Plus Lags Or Crashes On Aspire V7

Sep 6, 2014

I have a problem with the Dolby utility that came preinstalled on Acer Aspire V7 482PG. When I click it, it takes around 5-20 seconds for the interface to show up (5 when I am not doing anything, more during playing anything with sound (youtube video etc.). Sometimes it does not even open and the icon disappears until I log off the PC and logon again.
PS.: there is enough HDD space, it is defragmented, there are no viruses or spyware (according to Defender and Malwarebytes), there are not too many programs running in the background.

HP/Compaq :: Enabling Write Caching On Western Digital Scorpio HD

Jan 6, 2009

I have an HP DV2700 laptop (core 2 duo T5450 @1.66Ghz, 2GB of ram with vista home premium 32-bit).

I have a Western digital scorpio 250GB HD at 5400 rpm (WDC WD2500BEVS) and I am having some trouble enabling the write catching (and in extension, advanced performance mode.) I have tried accessing device manager and selecting 'enable write caching on the disk' however the policy does not persist once i apply the change. Despite my disappointment, this was to be expected since the comment 'this device does not allow its write cache setting to be modified' can be seen underneath the option. Being a tweaker of sorts with regards to vista, I was certain there is a way to allow such modifications to take place.

As an aside, I wanted to know whether enabling these policies would decrease spin up time? More specifically, decrease the amount of heat emitted from the hard drive. Of those who own DV laptops, this is an understandable request, seeing as the base of the laptop, under stress, becomes uncomfortably hot.

Apple :: Western Digital Scorpio Blue 500GB 5400RPMHeat

Jun 16, 2009

I fitted the above HD into my Macbook Pro unibody a fair few months ago and it generally works great, I was even more impressed at how easy it was to install as I'm by no means a computer expert!

Anyway, the one niggle I have is that my Pro is running hotter, so much so that instead of a niggle I am a little worried.

It seems to be worse when I am running programs with the Apple OS but also using Windows XP with Fusion. The heat is a worry but the noise of the fans is just plain annoying. Prior to fitting this hard drive I never heard a peep out of the stock 250GB drive, either from the fans or the drive itself (as an aside, I can hear the new drive, but its quiet and not a problem). Likewise, it never seemed to get hot.

What confuses me is that the heat doesn't come from the area where the drive is. As you look at your laptop during normal use, the hot part is to the rear left of the base (i.e. the keyboard part).

I notice that Apple have 500GB drives available as an option on Macbook Pros now, does anyone know what make these could be? Also, does anyone have any experience with these yet?
