Just odd...

by Inu_Ranma / October 13, 2004 10:05 AM PDT

I'm working in XP Pro, on an Athlon 2500+XP, an Nforce-factor board, not using the video, a BFG Gefore 6800OC Video card, and using the onboard sound.

Now, the odd thing is that every once in a while I start getting this intermittant thumping on the sound card. There's no sign as to where it's coming from but it's annoying as all hells. Ever heard of this happening before?

Hopeful...

Almost every single nForce and nForce2 motherboard on the planet use the same crappy audio chipset. You can get SB Live 5.1 cards these days for like $20 or less, and the sound quality should be markedly better.

There's no point in ruining an otherwise pretty decent gaming system by using onboard sound. Get at least an SBLive, if not an Audigy or Audigy 2.

...does anyone know what the problem is!!!.. but seemings we cant look under your bonnet we need you to look for us.
For a start - when did this first start to happen or has it always done this.
And what have you done to try and fix it.
First thing to check is your speakers and connections - try using other speakers.
Next look to see if your drivers are working OK by looking in device manager.
When does this occur, when u play CD music or DVD music or what or from your hard disk or which file formats???. Does this also occur when playing in different media software programs.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
