View Full Version : Sound issues, new comp
I JUST finished building my PC today, and the sound won't work. I have an Asus A8N5X mobo, and I'm using the onboard sound. The chipset is an nForce4. I've tried using the Realtek AC'97 drivers, as well as the nForce4 drivers. The only time I can get sound out of the speakers is when I open this HP Sound Effect panel thing. It has a "connector sensing" panel, that detects the speakers when they're plugged in. I click the "Start" button, on the panel, and a loading bar starts up, and goes to 100. During this time (like 2 seconds) I can hear my music playing. As soon as it hits 100, I get a very short squeal type sound, and an error message that reads: Access violation at address 004A1A02 in module 'RTLCPL.exe.' Read of address 0000001C. I'm using the plug in the back of the mobo for the speakers.
Either something is running in the background and causing a conflict or you need to reinstall/update the sound drivers.
And, if you just built that machine why is there an "HP Sound Effect panel thing" in there?!? That stands for Hewlett-Packard, correct?
I'm pretty sure that application is actually the reason, or a big part of the reason, why you have no sound...
BTW, NF4's are good boards but you'll get better performance from a PCI sound card such as the ones sold by Creative Labs. A word of advice: DO NOT install the SB card from the included CD!!!!!!
Let XP install it and you will have fewer problems, for sure. The only exceptions to this rule are the newer Audigy cards which require the Creative WaveStudio to be installed before the 3D sound will work properly in all applications.
