my ‘sound’ died on my computer a couple of weeks ago. All I get is a ‘pop’ from the speakers with i power the computer up and down.
I figured it was the sound card. I have an HP pentium 4. 1.7 ghz, The audio is incorporated into the mobo.
I went to a local shop and bought a plug in audio (6 channel 5.1) and plugged it in to one of the expansion slots.
I went into the bios and disabled the ‘onboard’ system
I uploaded to driver and attempted to load. I then went to ‘device manager’ and found that the symbal for the new card had a little yellow circle with an exclamination point in it.
As I went through the ‘troubleshooting’ routine I found that the new card had installed not once but six times - once at one address, and then five more times at another address. Very efficiant since i only attempted to load it once!
When i populate the ‘sounds and audio devices properties’ window I get a device status message: This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use (code 12) This indicates multiple conflicting installations,… right?
when I attempt to delete any of the installs it deletes them ALL!!!
Where do I go from here???
I’m running XP on a HP pentium 4 - 1.7 ghz SD Mobo. I have 1.3 ghZ of ram. with a cd burner and a sony dvd burner, and two on board 80 gig hard drives. I have roxio 9 burning software.
