Hi, I have a USB Speaker that auto-installs a audio driver into windows 7 when plugged in. Problem is I'm not sure the driver is running well with Windows 7 because there are random hissing sounds coming out. Once it comes out, it won't stop until I remove my usb and plug it back again.
So I want to try compatibility mode with XP and Vista, but I am unsure how to do this.
Sorry about the double post but I contacted the manafacturer and they said that the USB Crystal Speaker is compatible with Windows 7 but...I'm not sure what the person means but this is what he/she said...
"The speakers are compatible with Windows 7. However, your computer manufacturer might have some glitches in their interface routines to Windows 7. Please update your computers USB drivers and BIOS. Please check with the website of your computer manufacturer under support."
"According to our experience the interface routines to Windows 7 of your computer manufacturer to Windows 7 is the culprit. "
I tried plugging in my Speakers to my Vista Laptop and it worked perfectly.
Ok so I'm pretty sure my Windows drivers are upto date. I'm not sure how to update BIOS and I understand it involves flashing which is very risky and I hope not to do so. My computer is custom built so I can't really contact the manufacturer unless they mean the manufacturer of my motherboard.
The last statement I just have no clue what he/she means. They suggested I try plugging the device to an external USB hub but I don't have any.
Is there some more testing I can do? I asked them too about this and hope I can get some suggestions here too.
