How are you doing?
Ok, so here it goes...
A few weeks ago my VLC started causing me problems. Every time I would watch a video, a white film would overlay the video for a few seconds. This went on until someone somehow fixed it. All he did was update the bios drivers & the video drivers. I believe I also uninstalled & reinstalled VLC prior to that which didn't help.
I was also getting the audio cutting in & out every few minutes so I couldn't hear the words. If I rewound it, it wouldn't happen in the same spot. I thought it was the USB stick, but after testing other sticks, same problem. I think it was better when we tested it by saving it to the computer, but I can't remember. I do have a USB hub.
That problem still hasn't been solved.
Now today I decided to call ASUS as I have their motherboard (I'm on a desktop & no it's not their desktop, I didn't even know they made custom desktops until today LOL). Anyway, the guy wanted to know what RAM I had & so after that he had me change the speed of it in the BIOS to 800.
He also had me update the audio drivers, but refused to stay on the phone with me & when I restarted, my speakers wouldn't work.
I freaked out, called back & their Filipino call center had me take the checkmark off of headset & move it to speakers. That worked, but this update & bios change did NOT solve the VLC issues.
Anyway, someone just called me on Skype & now my headset won't work, his voice is coming thru the speakers! Grrr, I'm very frustrated by all of this.
How do I get both the speakers & headset to work with the headset only working when I plug it in? This is the normal way it should be behave.
Also I sort of ruled out the speakers being the issue b/c sometimes when I'm on Skype it cuts out (a lot less than on VLC), but now the first ASUS techi said that doesn't mean it's not the speakers b/c the headset runs thru the speakers. Is that true?
There has been static on the speakers for several months now, but when I moved from a different country to the US, it stopped, so I assumed it was the dirty electricity in the other country & just th either day it started again. It happens randomly & no, not when I'm plugging anything in, now it's happening sometimes even when my "You got mail" goes off. It's very infrequent.
I hope you can figure out what the problem is. I NEVER had these issues before.
Thank you sooo much
