Re: sound card troubles
I disabled the on board sound and then tried to install the latest drivers.
I got half way when the whole system crashed. I then started in safe mode
and reinstalled the drivers. The good news is that the card is recognized
by vista; the bad news is that the card refuses to make all my speakers
work. On my 5.1 speakers, when set to 5.1 it will not play any sound out of
the center,right front, or subwoofer. I moved my connections around but it
made the speakers play on the wrong signal and still not all of them would
play. I was worried about my speakers so I temporarily disabled the sound
card and rebooted to use the on board sound. My speakers are fine but
unless I hear about a fix I will only use my onboard sound
