Hey all, this is a bitter pill to swallow, never had to ask for help before. lol.

Running windows XP PRO on a gigabyte technology board (ga-7vrxp) with an amd athalon 2400+ cpu. 512 of ram, 80gb maxtor Hdd and a stealth s80 video card with radeon 9200se and 128 onboard.

Now I am using the onboard sound on the motherboard, and everything was working fine untill yesterday. Tried to play a game, and realized i was getting no sound. I have updated all my drivers, and such, and all to no avail. I am probably missing some little detail, and can't remember it, so I come to you all.

Welcome to BC gizmothing

Did you just buy the game, and it did not work or have you played the game for a while, and it did work at one time?
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

Yes, I have checked that the speaker cable was plugged into the correct jack in the onboard sound card :thumbsup:

And I had not downloaded anything new, shut down the computer the night before, started it up again, tried to play a game called "America's Army", and had no sound. Tried other apps, adn still nothing.

After 3 days of trying to fix it, I gave up completely, -put a fresh install of windows xp pro back on, with a clean hard drive. still no sound, but now it seems that my computer is taking ALOT longer to start up.

I have gotten around the onboard sound, by putting in an old compaq sound card with the most current driver for it, but even that only worked after re-installing windows twice.

The only conclusion that I can come up with is that I have a nasty virus that is residing in my memory, or that my onboard sound on the motherboard has crapped out.

however, any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.
