My sister has a new computer and there seems to be a problem w/ the sound card. The problem is as follows: the sound is very faint w/ the master volume turned all the way up. The card is a RealTek ALC888 7.1+2 Channel High Definition Audio Codec. I have uninstalled the original drivers and installed the Vista Driver (32/64 bits) Driver only version R1.78 High Definition Audio Codecs, from the RealTec site. I have adjusted all of the settings many times and still the problem still persists. I am on the verge of getting her to buy a new card. Is there anything that you guys can think of that I may be missing?

Any help would be appreciated,

Ted

BTW, the PC is an HP Pavilion a1250n running Vista, AMD Athlon X2 3800+ w/ 2G of ram if that helps. :thumbsup:

Hi Ted again :thumbsup:

When you say that you've re-installed the vista drivers are they drivers from HP's website or from the RealTek website?

In the meantime, thislink may help, seems a longshot but worth a try. For more info scroll up the page for more possible solutions. Also this link might provide some assistance.

Hope that helps!

A-ha!
We have been trying to use non-powered speakers on a card that requires powered ones. The only output for just using 2 speakers is the green one. I did run the card thru my speaker system which is a y adapter (headphone 2 rca) from the pc's green line out to a regular stereo receiver. It had a lot more hissing, from the speakers, as you increased the volume on her computer than when it is normally hooked up to my computer, which has a Soundblaster Live 24-bit external sound card.

I installed the new drivers from the RealTek website.

Thanks for the reply FireKracker, it really helped!
