Today i have been installing my new MSI K7N2 motherboard.
I had to borrow a friend’s PSU because the damn thing wants a P4 plug (12V) and currenly am running an Athlon 1333MHz on it with 1024Mb of DDR ram.
After about 25 Windows XP restarts , it finally crashed , lost all my passwords/emails and some programs , but oh well… they will reappear again. So , having a nice clean Windows XP installed.
Naturally i have updated all the bios , firmware and drivers one could possibly find on the NVidia and MSI websites.
But the thing is… i can’t get my Soundblaster Cambridge FPS 2000 4-point surround speaker set working on the nForce soundcard.
The front two speakers work (connected at lineout plug) , but the read speakers don’t (connected at linein plug and configured the software to make use of that linein as a 2nd lineout).
The nForce MCP2 comes with a nice handy control panel , but the nForce MCP doesn’t (pretty annoying), so i’m at a total loss here.
What the hell can i be doing wrong ? Should i downgrade to older drivers or what the hell is going on ?
I have tried many different configurations in the Windows XP speaker setup , all to no avail.
It’s nice to have my Unreal Tournament 2003 finally at max speed and graphics , but now the sound sucks…
