Is my Soundcards THX True studio pro compatible?

Hello you can find the info here:

As far as i can see it only have 5.1 surround sound.
And no thx certification.
A THX certified card is more expencive.
The games you play, must also have the thx logo, and must be encoded with the thx sound system.
A thx system is 7,1, and the speakers must also have the certification.

Here are the gigabyte homepage:

The onboard sound card is 2 channel stereo.

Hope this was helpfull

My New sound card did work, but i had to Format my comp.

CAREFULLY remove your sound card and then try to boot up.

if it does not boot up then your computer has a problem and you need to consult your MFG.

if it does boot up then check the specks on the sound card and check if it is compatable.

if it is compatable, make shure that the contacts are clean (use a compressed air cleaner), and that the sound card is not damaged, then reconect (with the computer off).

In the way of only one speaker working, you probably have a loose connection; bad cable; or a bad speaker.

Conflicting Sound card/motherboard

You might want to check and make sure that the sound card is compatible with the motherboard.  If that was what was causing the problem, I would suggest getting a new sound card, they are not too expensive...sometimes it is easier just to replace then have to go through all of the same issues again with the old card.

Cant get sound card working in Windows XP Pro 64 bit

Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the software related to your soundcard.

Go to Device Manager and remove the sound card it is the device that has an exclamation point or question mark.

Turn off your PC and remove the Card. Then turn it back on again and enter the BIOS setup and disable the built in sound card of your motherboard then press F10 and save the changes.

Restart your computer and verify that windows is not going to scan for missing devices. Check the Device Manager again and look for any devices that has an exclamation point or question mark. If there is none. Turn off your computer put the sound card back in and turn it on again. Put in the CD Driver but exit on the autorun let windows detect the card automatically and wait for it to ask for the location of the drivers. Point or browse to the driver location and let the installation finish and click on ok. Your PC may ask for another restart do that turn on your speaker and listen for the boot up sound if your hear it then your card is now working.
