Hello!

I'm back again with another problem. Recently i didnt have any sound at all, and thought i solved it completely. Here's the old thread:
https://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...lp-957785.html

As the topic says, i've got really bad quality of sound. i tried changing the Hz and such but im not sure what to do. The speakers are working properly, tried them on another pc just to make sure!

Thanks!

I tried installing AC97 drivers since thats what im using instead of the HD audio, but it wont install(getting this message: Windows canít verify the publisher of this driver software) i tried clicking install this anyway several times but i gave up.

Hello!

I did! ofcourse

I think it might be a switch or something on the mobo where u would choose between ac97 and HD audio, correct me if im wrong

EDIT:

Im just very confused why it doesnt recognize it being plugged in while HD audio is activated instead of AC97, i did some research and found out its used in XP and has problems on the later kinds of OS

There isn't a mobo-switch as far as I'm aware, it's mostly always software-controlled. Unfortunately, I've little experience with AC97-drivers but check that either 'Speakers' or AC97 is set to be the default-output.

Usually, the quality improves at the higher sample-frequencies and 'bits'.

its at 24bit 192000hz right now(the highest one) but i've tried all of em and its the same. its mainly the base that sound dissorted, its clear sound until the beats drop!

If you've got team viewer i could pm u my info so you can infiltrate my pc

Have you tried 'balancing' the various input volume-sliders? Usually, when the volumes are over 80%-90% distortion starts to creep in, setting the inputs to approx 75% then adjusting the master-volume to your final level can reduce distortion/noise/squeals.

Also, check the various driver-features to see if there's a 'graphic-equaliser' switched on, if found, try reducing the bass frequencies.

Alternatively, if there's still problems getting the AC97 drivers to install, it's very possible the audio-chip has died (or in the process of doing so) - The only 'cure' for that is to fit a 3rd-party sound-card and disable the onboard audio in the BIOS, if applicable.

Right-click the speaker icon (System-Tray), the select 'Open Volume Mixer'

It'll take a bit of experimentation to get decent quality at decent volumes, but you now know what bit to play with
