HP Audio :: Envy M6 Notebook - Sound Device Is Being Used By Another Application
Jun 27, 2014
Product name: HP ENVY m6 Notebook PC
Product number: D1E93UA#ABA
I have uninstalled/re-installed the driver, rebooted, and still no sound. When I right-click Speakers/HP, and Test - the pop-up says Device in Use. There are no legit applications using the device. I have been running Windows Defender since I used the official HP Recovery Discs I ordered. I have not visited questionable websites, yet, it looks like I have malware?
Yesterday I plugged in an HDMI cable to output to a Toshiba tv. After unplugging the cable I no longer have sound on my HP Envy 17 Notebook (this notebook has Beats Audio). The product # is EOK85UA#ABA.
Faced with the problem. No sound after the laptop. When you try to check the sound device, a window pops up "the device is already in use by another application." But no program is not running. After rebooting the laptop sound occurs. Drivers are all set.
Audio device Realtek ALC269 Win 7 Pro SP1 (x64) with all updates Motherboard 20208 Chipset Intel Panther Point HM77 BIOS Version H5ET84WW(1.22) (11/26/2013)
UEFI boot mode, not Legacy.Drivers for sound downloaded from realtek.com.tw. With standard windows drivers sound is always there. Tried the previous version of the drivers - ineffectually. Could it be that the problem is due to the UEFI boot mode? I do not want to reinstall the OS mode Legacy just to check it out.
I use an HP ENVY M6 notebook running Windows 8.1, 64 bit. I was seeing a lot of unwanted popups telling me I needed Java or other add ons which I don't. The computer is less than a month old. I went to that day's downloads and deleted everything I found from that day. Since then, I have no sound. I probably deleted something but I thought I was pretty careful. Can I download a sound card?
I am using Windows 8 and my notebook model is Envybook 6-1002st. Since last week, i can not hear anything while playing games, also no sound in web browser. I tried to all solving methods from Windows and Windows can not detect any problem. Last updates of audio and sound card are installed. Now i can hear all Windows sounds. But no sound for browser and games.

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.

Okay, well the day before yesterday I was trying to watch Youtube but when I clicked on a video it had no sound. I thought it was Youtube, so I exited the site and thought I'd wait a little bit. So then I went to Spotify to listen to some music. I kept clicking and clicking and nothing was happening. Then I noticed a blue notice at the top that said something about my soundcard not working properly.
I then checked everything on my computer to see if it had sound. Windows Media Player...no, videos on Facebook...nope, nothing was working. At first I thought it was my daughter. I let her watch Youtube when she lays down for a nap. I came in the other day and she was hitting all kinds of buttons on my computer. I stopped her though and everything seemed fine. I also remember my computer updating that day. Could it be that something went wrong with the update? I don't know if that's possible or not.
And also, what is a soundcard. Do I have to buy it or do I download it???
I went to Yahoo answers and someone said to uninstall the drivers. I did that and then reinstalled them and it worked. The rest of that day I had sound on everything except for Facebook. Yesterday night it happened again and the sound has not returned since but my computer sounds are still working. When I logged on the computer made the log in sound it usually makes. I also tried to listen to a video with headphones and it still did not work. Again, I uninstalled the drivers and then re installed them and got nothing.
i have no audio on my laptop. ive tried restarting, ive run my cleaners. im at a loss as to what to do next. i have an hp 2000 notebook with windows 8. my audio was working perfectly fine a couple days ago. i havn't made any changes to my computer. it just stopped working.
Ok, I havent had sound on my HP for 8 months. I have done all the troubleshooting I can and I really need to have sound on this PC. I have been working on this all week. Do I need to do a factory restore?? Model XY980UA#ABA, HP Pavilion DV6 Notebook.
Suddenly my computer has no sound what so ever. It doesnt work when I plug in headphones, either. When I hold the mouse over the sound icon in the bottom right corner of the screen it says, "No Audio Output Device is Enabled."
I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Service Pack 1. My computer's product number is XZ046UA#ABA.
Do I need to install a new driver, or something else?
I recently noticed my Pavilion dv7 entertainment notebook won't play sound through the tv anymore. The picture is on the tv but sound is running through the laptop speakers? I never had a problem with this until now. When i open up the sound options, the ATI HDMI output says it's not connected and so it wont let me select it, but it is connected?
Lately I've been having issues with the sound, which I believe to be temperature related and I wasn't sure whether to put this in the audio or hardware board.
Anyway, at least once a day I have to restart because any sound output-- videos, skype calls, music-- beging to stutter severely and sound how I can only describe as "robotic." After restarting, it goes back to normal. There are no error messages, the system just begins to lag and affected programs become unresponsive.
Usually when this happens, I notice that my device is unusually hot. Ever since I purchased it, I have never heard or felt air moving in the vents so I'm not sure if the fan is functional. I'm afraid to take it apart to make sure in case that voids the warranty, but I suspect excessive heat might be damaging the components related to this issue.
The default sound device is Realtek High Definition Audio
I've had this problem a few times but at random it seems to fix itself. I'm an new IT tech and i'm truly stumpted by this.
Computer: hp folio 13 - 2000 notebook pc: all drivers and software fully updated and 100% virus free. I use the computer mostly on a closed network.
Issue: The sound has random long periods of time where the sound is either on or off. Checked and reinstalled drivers, restarted, went through all the windows audio settings and still cant seem to pin point the issue. I'm considering just replacing the build in speakers and wiring if I dont find a solution soon.
I have an HP Pavilion G6 Notebook PC, E5L25EA#ABU. (Windows 8) My sound has stopped working and I do not know why. Obviously I have checked that the sound is turned up on both my laptop and in the program I am watching.
I have a dv7-7270ca notebook and since a restart due to windows 8 updates I now have a red x on the speaker icon. I installed the HP driver for this model but it has an error in device manager that says:
Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)
I did run an audio test using the shut down-F2 and passed and could hear the sounds in the test.
I have an HP Pavillion zv6000 and my audio isn't working and i enter in the device manager and shows this error: "This device cannot start. Code 10" After this i installed my audio driver from the site and still same problem.
I recently received this acer laptop as a gift. Right from the first time I started it I noticed issues with the sound. With any audio that played there were crackling noises.The crackling got worse and worse so I Decided to restart the laptop and then the sound stopped working altogether.I tried reinstalling the Realtek HD audio drivers that came with the laptop but that didn't work and I still got a "No Audio Output Device is Installed" message in the bottom corner.
I tried reinstalling the drivers AGAIN, and the sound worked. All seemed well until I woke up the next day with no sound yet again.I then tried downloading new drivers from the realtek website, even these drivers didn't work. The only solution to the problem seemed to be basically uninstalling and reinstalling the realtek drivers until they worked, and even then, the sound would still crackle horrendously.After getting fed up with this issue I tried to refresh windows, and even this didn't work.I have tried everything I can think of .....
When I connect my laptop to my tv the sound does no come out the tv, but remains coming out the pc speakers. it is not a cable issue as my other hp laptop works fine. i can't find a setting to change it to hdmi audio output.
I have an HP Envy dv7-7230us. I recently installed multiple HP updates deemed "critical" by their prompt. After installing and rebooting, I have no sound. If it is a clue, it also disconnected my WiFi.
