Re: Piercing Sound and Freeing of PC

I sugest that you check your bios settings first before going any further and make sure you have updated drivers.

Why sound is not installing in my computer

Argghhh! need to configure your sound driver to work through the correct hardware you wish to use! (The best driver(s) for that require installation (or, reinstallation), if necessary.)

Are you using the onboard motherboard ports? HDMI-cable digital sound pass through? A PCI or PCI-EX sound card? USB speaker or dongle sound circuitry?

USB uses completely separate sound software and configuration control. It's "codec" is totally different and separate from other sound circuitry drivers. Sometimes, USB PC speakers merely use USB for power--not signal. Drivers and mixers for the relevant onboard or analog card output port then still serve.

Cables connected correctly? Jacks on your stereo or TV working correctly? Very rarely cables are defective or worn out.

Microsoft Windows--right?

Not getting sound is frustrating and bedeviling at times--you likely already succeeded, though. You're sound hardware likely is OK--that's rarely defective or broken.

Sound driver software configuration likely has a "Test" feature in some menu--when configuration is correct, invoking that will pump tone through each speaker--right, then left (then satellite speaker and sub). Perhaps more than one set of configuration settings are relevant, too. Make certain that the configuration settings you need are made visible in your mixer configuration, as well. (That's not always a "given.")

Know which sound system you're using--find then which drivers and configuration you need!

AMD Linux tips: The AMD HDMI driver for passthrough requires the binary "non-free" driver from AMD--open source drivers currently won't pass through HDMI signals. Enable the "non-free" repository. That's the way AMD desires it. They currently won't cooperate with the community on the open source HDMI sound driver (AMD won't yet provide source code--something upon which the community insists before they will collaborate directly on creating drivers--reluctantly, they will assent now, though, to allowing AMD (and others) to create proprietary binaries for our use--the community won't directly support them, though). Video passthrough likely will work nominally, though--providing video sans sound....

Another Linux sound tip--you need the correct "backend," codec, and mixer software for the sound software used--gstreamer, phonon, Pulse, ALSA, OSS, Jack, etc. Often, this proves necessary for initialization, enabling, and configuration in the first place. (Perhaps a simple "check" in a box is all that's needed--you may need to "tinker" in order make such a simpleton solution visible and usable, though.) The situation changes over time. Pulse is the default now--ALSA may serve up better, more usable mixers than the comically overly-simplified ones provided for Pulse....

Vice city game is not playing

Does your system support the following minimum requirements for playing the game?

800 MHz Intel Pentium III or 800 MHz AMD Athlon or 1.2GHz Intel Celeron or 1.2 GHz AMD Duron processor
128 MB of RAM
8 speed CD / DVD drive
915 MB of free hard disk space
(+ 635 MB if video card does NOT support DirectX Texture Compression)
32 MB video card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers ("GeForce" or better)
Sound Card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers Keyboard & Mouse

Your motherboard has IntelĀ® Extreme Graphics 2 controller as the onboard graphics controller. Search the Internet whether it is capable of rendering the graphics in order to play the game and latest drivers for your onboard graphic card are installed.

My motherboard is Manli geforce 6100 value and i am instaled Vga card Zotac Nvidia 9500 GT with processor AMD Athlon 5200 x2, ram corsair 2Gb dual chanel, PSU extreme 450. my problem: My PC performance is...

I would back off the 9500 GT and get the onboard video working first.

I would also suggest that you don't have a good enough PSU for that 9500 card, Corsair memory, and the and the AMD 64 x2 5200.

That could account for the slowing down and occasional blank out. The Extreme 450 is much better suited for a milder, stock system.

For that system I would suggest a GOOD PSU at least 650 and preferably 700 to 750.

Graphics cards and sound cards


You don't need any special sound and graphics card to support AMD Athlon 1700+ Processor.

Just ensure you have a systemboard that support Socket 462 (also called Socket A). Sound and graphics support are generally a feature of the systemboard in use.

Check Socket A AMD Processor Installation Guide for more info -
