Hi .. i have a mate who has an XP 1700, A7V266 mb, vibra 128 sound card and running XP Pro and every time hes comp starts up the windows sounds are all distorted and totally static sounding. Now we replaced the sound card with a new one, same make, put XP Home also to see if PRO was the culprit but that didnt work, ive looked at microsofts, creatives and asus web site for a patch and any relevant info, but cant find nothing. Any ideas? Also the distorted sounds are only associated with all windows sounds e.g error, start up e.t.c, music playing from the cd-rom, but no distortions coming from any game he plays. Please advice.

:confused:

Try going back to Volume Panel. Try muting all of the outputs except wave. see if the prob is still there.

Also make sure that all of the recording inputs are muted.

have you tried putting the sound card in another computer to see if it works?

also, maybe the speakers are dying???

Well originally we discovered the card had a cracked capacitor, so we replaced it with a new card (same make) and it still did the same problems. And yes we have downloaded the latest drivers, but we sorted it out, he went out and bought a new card ( different make ) ROFL ...

thnx for all your help

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
