Okay i bought and installed a new Tv-tuner card.. including all of it's drivers/softwares. But now i hear lots of noise from speakers when playing *ANY* audio. I cant play mp3s or anything. And sometimes there is no sound coming at all. I removed the card. And removed the software.. But nothing. I followed the guide from http://www.free-codecs.com/guides/How_to_i...ows_XP_2000.htm to reinstall default codecs. No luck. I am sure it's not my speakers. Because i have tested it with tv and it works fine. I'm pretty much sure tv-tuner software/drivers have corrupted this anyhow. What do i do? And please dont tell me to reinstall XP. Help will be appreciated.

Are there any other electrical devices near the speakers or the CPU? Such as a phone, hot plate, etc? If so, try moving them away.

Also, try moving all the wires associated with your TV card, speakers, and network connections - does this affect the sound quality?

I did what you said. Moved the wires.. telephone. I have still noises. And sometimes it occurs on boot up also. So it seems like that tv card screwed my onboard sound? OR it could be anything else? I have even resetted my bios.

Make sure you connected all the wires properly.

If you are experiencing a "Hum" you probably have the ground connected backwards.

Get the latest drivers for all devices.

Just to check - you do not get any sounds at all (including Windows sounds)?
Don't panic - the worst thing that can happen is that you will have to get a pci sound card and you can get one fairly cheaply if you have to.

Have you checked the speakers using a different computer (or by plugging them into a cd player or radio)?
Make sure the power transformer for the speakers is plugged in too.

If the speakers check ok:

First, delete your lan card again, put your pci lan card in a different slot, reboot and install it.
The lan card should not have affected the sound, but since it did try a different pci slot which will change resources and settings for it and eliminate a conflict if one exists.

If that doesn't fix the problem:

Open your device manager
(in the control panel click on System, then the hardware tab, then the device manager button)

See if your ESS Technology, Device:ES1988/9 Allegro-1 Audiodriv has a yellow or red icon. (it will be in sound, video and game controllers)

Even if it doesn't double click on it .

Try the troubleshooter (even if it says the device is working properly)

If that still is not successful go to your computer manufacturer's support site and download the latest driver for your sound adapter (or get it from the motherboard manufacturer or wherever). Save it where you will be able to find it.

Delete the sound adapter in the device manager.

Reboot and let Windows find it and install it using the driver you saved for it.

Are there any yellow or red icons anywhere else in the device manager?

I bought the new card to test. And it works but sound sucks.

Anyway here are my bios settings. http://img395.imageshack.us/img395/5355/pic0007ky2.jpg

Do you think anything is conflicting with onboard sound? I cant change irq to disable. It just switches to numbers 3,5,11..

AND There are no exclamation marks on device manager.
