Question about MSI K8N Neo4-F Motherboard
I have a 5.1 speaker setup at home and connected to my motherboard. i used the s/pdif output of the motherboard in windows xp and it worked well. it consistently received digital output even if no sound is playing.
when i installed vista, the receiver doesn't receive any signal from the digital output. and every time a sound comes in, it will come out through the speakers and at the end of the sound the receiver stops receiving signals again. it's so annoying because it's like manually turning the receiver on and off (where there's a large thump at the end of a sound) each time sound is received.
now, imagine hover buttons with sounds in websites. it gets really annoying. i can't locate the source of the problem.. please help me..
You probably just need to update the audio drivers for that MB to use with Vista.
And it just so happens that MSI's download page for that motherboard has only 1 updated driver for the Vista OS, and that driver update is Vista_Realtek_AC97.zip
Hope that helps, and if it does, please remember to rate this solution!
