ABIT KV7 Mothervoard - no sound in Windows xp only mobo beep

by compost / March 4, 2007 4:32 AM PST

I am experiencing a weird problem in Windows Xp - no sound
from the onboard sound card. If i try to adjust volume from the main
toolbar, i get a motherboard beep. BIOS is setup ok to use onboard sound, all drivers are ok etc. Seemed to do this after using tunebite
program, or possibly after leaving jack plug for speakers pulled out 1/2 way...but I doubt this was it?

Any ideas anyone??

Ouch. 1/2 way out jack could short output.

While most boards will survive such the brutal thing here is that you could have shorted both channel outputs to ground and the output has been fried.

My last hurrah test is to boot up Linux from a LiveCD for final testing and then proceed to disabling the onboard card in favor of a new soundcard.

I suspect that's what happened - never thought twice about it before...that will teach me a lesson! Will check it out...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
