I have a Dell Dimension 4700 which the SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio system is built into the Motherboard. This computer was given to be and one day, I lost my sound altogether. I have finally got back my computer sounds, but can hardly hear anything I try to play. I want to record some of my own music, but when I try to set-up the music program to record, my computer immediately goes black screen or blue screen. The black screen, the computer will restart, the blue screen I can't even shut the computer off. I have to unplug the whole system, wait a few mins, plug it back in, then it will restart. When I first recieved the computer, the sound worked okay. After I reinstalled the files for the SoundMAX, I can't seem to get it to work properly. I have the Audacity program, as well as one I just installed. Even the one I just installed does the same thing. So I'm thinking it is a computer problem, not a software problem.
Does anyone possibly know what the problem is, so I can fix it? I have done a system scan, and everything seemed okay, but towards the end DMA popped up. Are there configuration settings to set-up SoundMAX? If so, Ican't find them. Or would I have to write a specific .ini, .bat file to do it?
Thanks for any help you can give me.
