Ok, for the past few days I've been frustrated with a certain driver issue. On thursday, I went to a website which I visit regularly, watched a quicktime video (no sound) and soon noticed, there was no sound at all. I checked the Sounds and Audio Devices, and it said, and still says, No Audio Device. It's as if my onboard PoS audio doesn't exsist anymore. The fact is though, it does still exsist, and I tried to fix it on my own. First thing I did, went and grabbed my motherboard driver cd, poped it in, reinstalled the driver, and restarted, still no sound. Next step, I went and scanned my computer for viruses, with Norton, Ad-Aware 6, Spybot Search and Destroy, Spyware Blaster, and PestPatrol. I found many little buggers, but even after I cleaned them, it still didn't help the problem. Next, I went to Realtek, Gigabyte, and Microsoft to check for support, nothing I found fixed the problem. Next, I went and searched on google, checked as many forums and sites for help as I could, but to no avail. So, here I am, asking yet another group for help. Here are my system specs:
Intel P4 3.00ghz
Gigabyte P4 Titan model # GA-8I875 (Onboard Realtek AC'97 Audio)
512mb DDR ram
ATI Radeon 9200
I'll refrain from listing said site because it isn't worksafe, but you don't need to remind me, I won't be going there again anyways. If someone could help me resolve this problem before the weekend is over, I'd greatly apprietiate it. Thank you in advance.
