I just bought a new XP2600 board and K7 processor with onboard audio. However, there's no audio playing from the cd player. It reads other non-music data...just doesn't play audio cd's. There's a driver with c-media 3d audio control panel installed and audio is heard when I click on my .wav files in windows explorer but not .wav sites online. Is there a remedy for this? Someone said the board was so new, it doesn't support Win98se...Is this true? Thanks
Wait...I've got it going a little...but the volume's really low. Strange seeing how this is a pretty powerful box..I've turned up the volume just about all the way up but it's still low...Any suggestions? Thanks
My speaker icon disappeared in the system tray...Yes, I've heard it doesn't like win98se but I'm stuck with it until I figure out how to upgrade to winXP. I have an XP upgrade disk but it says I'm missing some files. I'll check out the c-media website. How do I get my speaker icon back? Thanks
I never had any problems with sound using Windows98 or 98SE - it all worked exactly as it should and applied equally to XP Pro using the same four-year-old Elite mobo and onboard C-Media soundchip; however I now use a SoundBlaster Live! which works equally as well.
