    New default Windows "sound" since 2004 upgrade - Device Connect


    When I am away from the computer for an extended time, I leave the computer like this...

    DELL monitor OFF
    Firefox browser open but minimized
    "Persistent Windows" (program) running
    No sleep or hibernate, except...
    ....Turn off HDD after 120 minutes
    ....USB Selective suspend (enabled)



    So, about 7:30pm EST, I took old man nap. Woke up about 10:15pm. Turned monitor ON, and got...
    Windows "Device Connect" sound.

    It takes the monitor about 2-3 seconds to "get" an image, so if there is any visual indication related to the Devie Connect sound, I can see it.
    This only started since Win 10 2004 upgrade. ONLY happens in scenario described above.


    No USB flash or external HDD hooked to computer.

    ONLY things hooked to comp...

    1. Klipsch Pro Media speakers
    2. HDMI from vid card to TV (off)
    3. DP from vid card to DELL monitor
    4. Ethernet cable (modem to comp)
    5. USB keyboard and mouse (neither have 3rd party drivers)

    :)

    Sound Quality / Windows 10 Upgrade

    Hi J,

    To address this concern, we suggest that you follow these steps on how to troubleshoot sound issues after upgrading to Windows 10:

    • Right-click the sound icon in the taskbar located at the bottom right of the screen and select
      Playback Devices.
    • Select the current playback device in use and by default it should be the
      Speakers
      . Double-click on it to open its Properties window.
    • Got to Advanced tab and change the bit rate to either of the following: 24bit/44100 Hz or 24bit/192000Hz. Depending on the speaker configuration.
    If that won't work, follow these steps on how to scan for hardware changes:

    • Go to Start menu, search for Device Manager and click it.
    • Expand Sound and audio devices.
    • Right-click on the current sound driver and choose Uninstall.
    • Click on Scan for hardware changes and the updated driver will be automatically installed.

    If the issue still persists, we suggest that you download the latest sound card drivers for Windows 10 from your PC's manufacturer website.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Thank you.

    Sony Sound Forge 7 won't open since Windows 10 upgrade

    Tried to open my registered Sony Sound Forge 7 software program today and realized that since Windows 10 upgrade, like some other software programs affected, this one won't open.

    (1) Tried some of the suggestions in regedit but didn't see all of the Sony entries listed in the steps

    (2) Tried opening with "run as administrator" - didn't work.

    Any suggestions?
