Big Audio Problem-D975XBX2
I am new here and hoping you experts could help me out.
First off, here are my specs
Intel D975XBX2 Mobo
Intel Dual core
Nvidia 8800 gts
WD Raptor 60gb/ and 250gb sotorage drive
Windows XP 5.1.2600 SP2
I have been having an audio problem for quite some time now. I have a built in soundcard on my mobo:Intel High Def Audio Interface
It also says SigmaTel STAC9274D audio codec
I have Altec lansing speakers, 5+sub. They connect with three wires:
black, orange, and light green.
Currently, my computer sounds like crap. My audio system has turned into a left/right stereo system. I no longer have 5.1 surround etc.
If I unplug the black and green connector, nothing even happens. It is basically running off the orange one. I have to CRANK my volume knob to listen to audio on the internet (liek Youtube), but other things require a normal level. I can't watch movies on my computer anymore because all you can really hear is the background noises.. The center speaker isn't just voices...
I think this is all because of my driver. It changed from the SigmaTel to 'IDT Audio 1' version 5.10.5790.3 by itself...
When it said SigmaTel etc it worked perfectly. I cannot figure out how to fix this. Searching results in ALOT of hits for people with the same problem.
I tried rolling back teh driver and my sound did not work.
Any help guys? This has been bugging me for months now!
