I Need Help!
Well, its a difficult problem, and I really didn't know where to post it. It isn't related to Winamp, but it is related to my sound card and many people on these forums are really good with sound hardware, so I felt it was worth a try.
I just recently purchased a Sound Blaster PCI 512 to be put in my computer, as I only had an on board sound chip previously and wanted some better sound. I complained many times in previous threads that without a sound card, when I scrolled down or changed any windows, that the music would skip and mess up, almost making a rumbling sound.
I have recently installed the PCI card in my computer, and to my surprise, the sound quality only got worse!
I have checked to make sure there were no IRQ conflicts. The old ESS Allegro chip had been disabled. The PCI devices were working fine.
The music skips much more now that I have a sound card and it is more like a screech than a rubble now, but I can tell it is still the same problem.
Even though the computer said there was no IRQ conflicts, I decided to change my sound card to a seperate one than my video card, but unfortunately I couldnt do it. I went into the BIOS and tried to change the IRQ of my sound card, but then when I did that it also changed my video card to the same one automatically. I can't get my sound card off of the IRQ with my video card.
Well, what could the problem possibly be? I know it isn't my sound card, as it was given very good reviews and a friend of mine has a Sound Blaster PCI 128 and it works fine for him.
What could it be?
