Of course you think it's perfect out-of-the box, but as time progresses you start to notice the small imperfections. I only have a few issues with my Studio 1737, but this is one of them. If I am playing music, say from iTunes or the Zune Software, and I try to eject a CD or DVD, the audio will skip or stutter for about two seconds. This happens without fail, %100 of the time. Am I the only one experiencing this, or is it something that I will have to deal with? It really is not major since I rarely have a DVD or CD to eject, since my music is on harddrive already, but I noticed it when I ripped a DVD for my Zune.
Not sure what is causing this. Maybe someone else who had this issue and solved it can help me out. This is NOT the same as the crackling issue (which is solved by the Intel Matrix Controller drivers).
I am running Vista Business using the IDT drivers from Dell website. No other software from Dell installed other than the Matrix Controller driver. I am playing in Winamp. But notice it happens in WMP also.
CPU is not stressed at all. I am running on the High Performance profile (clock shouldn't be modulated).
Recently i ordered a Dell Studio XPS and like many of you with dell's,my main use was to be for audio production,dj'ing or any sort of thing pertaining to music.After ordering and then reading up online,ALOT of people are having problems getting the latency and/or pops skips & jumps out of their sound source.
Some say the problems lie within the Lan card,some say video card.And most importantly,Dell does not have an answer to the problem because they are not trained to understand audio type situations(Unfortunately).So...Here is where we are going to solve this thing(or try really hard because besides that...these are prett good laptops otherwise) Once i get mine in the next 3 days,im going to tell you what i did because i WILL fix it or at least try hard and fail.
I have a minor issue with the way tab works on the Mac.
Anyway, when I fill out forms, I like to use tab to move from field to field. In Windows, I have absolutely no problem with that. However, on my Macbook, when I hit tab, it will always skip drop down menus. It's an inconvenience when I have to pick up the mouse and navigate to the drop down and select my choice.
This isn't as efficient.
Is there anyway to make the browser select the dropdown menu once if I hit tab and it is the immediate field that follows?

and I've noticed some issues with my audio.
in short, many system sounds (logon/logoff/skype/facebook) are accompanied by a brief static blip before and after the sound (like it's initatiated and ended), and this becomes a bigger problem when I'm watching a movie or listening to music: When a system sound comes on, it interrupts what I have on already, causing a hiccup or break, and then returning to my previous sounds/audio.
I recently took a look at my IDT HD audio program in Control Panel. I could disable the enhanced audio, but then when the system sounds come on again, the window "flashes" a bit, the sound interrupts again, and the enhanced sound automatically re-enables itself! I am pretty sure this is the root of the problem. I turned off IDT HD Audio in my startup/services, so now I'm running on regular sound, and the audio interruption/hiccup issues are gone.
Did anyone else here notice similar issues with their XPS 16 IDT HD audio?
i am pretty desperate. the audio seems to be broken. i reinstalled the driverstwice so far, and after booting it usually works for like 20min or so. after that it just clams up and there is no more audio coming from the speaks.
skype crashes. it must be a driver or hardware thing, i dont think that problem is a software conflict since i tried uninstalling skype too.
what should i do? once it stops working only rebooting helps. for like 20min ...
I own a studio xps 1645 i720qm 4gb ram with ati 1gb 4670 card. My speakers are pissing me off. I can only hear sound through my head phones. my speakers arent working. Worst case i tired diagnostics tools at the bios startup and during the tests i hear the sounds?!?!??! when I log in my speakers just go dead. I checked IDT panel and it shows that my headphones are plugged in when they really arent. I called Dell rep to help the replaced my speakers and after a week im having the same problem again. I kind of doubt my HDMI port cause the last time this happened was right wafter i watched movies in my TV through my laptop. please guys help me out this is pissing me off soo much..im starting to regret getting this machine. IM experiencing constant freeze-ups too. some times when i go from adapter power to batter power (Power saver mode specially) and some times it randomly freezes (CONSTANTLY). Please help me somehow. I tried even a fresh install.
hey guys im really in a sort of desperate mood, after having tried out every possible driver and sound config i still got the same issue.
whenever i play videos with any sort of player oder listen to music or just have a plain average skype voice convo my loudspeakers create strange "rattling" noises. its like as if the loudspeakers wud at a certain frequency always bump against the interior of the laptop casing.
having my loudspeakers + subwoofer replaced didnt change anything. nor did the mobo replacement have any effect on anything.
i seriously dont know what to do, dell told me its "normal" !!?? I mean WHAT THE F ? even my 3 year old acer can play sounds without rattling noises on maximum volume.
sounds where these rattling noises happen to be most appalling are skype tones: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucuIc255QNk .....
I have the system listed in my signature running Windows 7 Ultimate and I am having the worst time with pops and crackles sporadically throughout songs during playback. I originally thought it might have been iTunes so I have tried a few other programs with the same results. It almost seems as though it cracks every time my computer has to "think".
On a clean install of Windows 7 x64 RTM the latest driver available from Dell support (v18.104.22.16862, A14) seems to crash at random intervals. Only a reboot fixes the problem. It makes running the IDT drivers almost impossible but there are some features such as analogue 5.1 which I can't do without.
I ordered new E6500 that came with Vista on it and I wiped that and have installed XP Pro SP2 on the machine. I have followed the guide on this page and installed everything in the correct order. The only thing that didn't install was the dial-up modem. It errored out and said "No MODEM device was found". Typically on the Latitude laptops I seem to remember installing the modem driver and it taking care of this entry in the device manager, but not this time.
There is a dial-up modem on the laptop and this is the only device that looks to not be installed. There is no webcam, WAN modem, or anything else like that.
Has problem with installing XP onto a E6500? Is the installer for the modem driver just bad or is there possibly something else going on.
The sound on my HP Pavilion G6-1a19wm is not working. Sound "does" work when using the audio jack with external speakers. I have tried uninstalling the driver, updating the driver, microsoft fix-it, and troublshooting steps. audio device shows in device manager and is supposedly working properly, mute is "not' enabled. visually all audio related things suggest that the audio is fine and troubleshooting finds no problems..
I have HP envy 15 j002er laptop. Originally I got it with Windows 8 but then I changed operation system to Windows 7 Pofessional (64-bit).I can`t install IDT high definition audio codec on it. I guess that is the reason why I don`t have and I can`t use Beats Audio interface on my laptop (only speakers are working). There are no audio drivers for Windows 7 available for download on HP website. When I`m cheking for driver updates via HP support, it proposes me only updates for Chipset, Graphics, Network, etc.And no Audio Driver..How can I solve it and install IDT high definition audio codec?

I have no audio. It has been previously working, but suddenly stopped. On the small speaker icon there is a red cross indicating "No Audio Output Device is enabled" When I log on to the computer i get a window that says "CWindowsSystem32AUDIOSES.DLL is not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error."
I have attempted to Troubleshoot but unable to get any sound. I have updated the Audio driver, but it is the up to date driver.

I recently bought a HP ENVY TouchSmart 15-j009wm which initially had windows 8, I installed a new O. S. Windows 8.1 64 bit and lost the driver pack for beats audio, I have been searching online for a download but cant seem to get a link to download.
