    Sound problems

    Ok so my computer is having a little problem with sound atm. I have gotten 2 new sounds cards and added in everything right and it still doesn't work I'm thinking it might be a problem with the motherboard or something. Anyone know what the problem might be? It's really confusing I have had sound cards die before but nothing that replacing them couldn't fix.

    Ah, I think that you might have fried the motherboard. Same thing happened with my old PC, screwed up the portion of the motherboard that has the soundcard and graphics card. I had to buy a new computer. I think It was static electricity that did the trick. Ended up spending 200 dollars on a new soundcard and AGP card just to find that its permanently screwed

    These two soundcards, have you kept plugging them in the same slot (PCI I am assuming)? Try plugging into a different slot. Also do you have the drivers installed? Does your computer reconise that there is some kind of hardware in that slot?

    sounds like old age again Feli. I would also suggest changing PCI slots. move your modem up one then plut your sountcard into the one the modem was in. If it works that way. and the modem dosen't then yeah it will be a motherboard problem

    If the card doesn't show up in 'Detect New Hardware', try going into the motherboard 'BIOS' and look for the settings to re-detect PCI IRQ settings, and reboot. If this doesn't help, then it sounds more and more like a motherboard problem of some kind...

    well, how do you KNOW that they were fried. Do you see black flame marks? Chances are that you are not dectecting your soundcard.
