Sound

By baileyeez ·
After an upgrade of the motherboard.
When I download an mp3 and when I play the song.
I can't hear it, why is that?
Any feedback would be helpful so that I can get the sound back to working condition.
\\Thanks.....

MB? VC?

by luyasu In reply to Sound

Ensure that the sound card driver is well installed. New MBs have a built-in SC. Ensure there is no confusion.

You could always run Windows Update when connected to the Internet, see what it finds.

thanks

I eventually did get the computer to output sound.
That was after re installing win 98 and then trying many other tactics.
much appreciated

More info?

Is it a separate sound card? Do you have sound on board with the new MB? Did you use your existing Windows install or a clean install? What OS are you using?
Make sure any old drivers are cleaned right out of windoze and then install the new drivers clean.
If you're using an add-on card and you have sound on-board, make sure OB sound is diasabled in BIOS.
In my case, I had a a problem where my new MB had on-board sound so I used it instead of my SB card. Although it seemed to install just fine and Win98 said it was working properly, I got no sound. After clean installs and trying every version of the drivers for AC97 sound on board (reported by BIOS and recommended by the MB manual), I tried C-media drivers for a different model ofthe same board and you know what? They worked fine.
Good luck!

A lot more info would be nice

But are you getting any sound from the computer at all? Is it only when you attempt to play an MP3 file that you've recently downloaded that things don't work? Can you play MP3's that you have downloaded previously?

Some info like the OS, which MP3 player you are using, what sought of sound device you have, and then I suspose some basic configeration hints on the actuall computer wouldn't go astray.

I'd ohnly be guessing if I was to offer any information with out knowing what you are attempting to do and on what. But if you give us the requested info I'm sure that some one here at TR will be able to offer you the help that you need if I can't.
