pcmoron thanks for your reply,not sure what info you req ,I have an E machine.system type X86-based PC,Windows ME installed,128mb Sync DRAM,128kb L2 Cache 66MHz system base,20GB Hard drive Ultra DMA,Intel Celeron764Mhz Processor,Sound Controller - AC97 Driver for intel(r)82801AA.
THe query re sound card stems from a problem I seem to be having trying to chat with friends on MSN,I can hear them but although my mike adio checks on my PC check out ok it does not work when I am in contact with my friends.Ichecked the MSN help line and it stated it could be a sound card problem ie,it should be full not half Duplex card >personally I don't think thats the problem its something else.
