Question about ASUS P5VD2-MX SE Motherboard
8400GS graphics card causes gross distortion to Start-Up sound and other sounds when in Windows Basic mode.
Other sounds OK in Windows Aero mode, but Start-Up sound still bad.
Remove 8400GS and everything reverts back to normal, but can't get Aero because onboard graphics is only 64meg.
I'm running Vista Home Premium, have 1024 meg Ram, 3.2 gig dual core, 180 gig hard drive, don't think it's the sound card, have tried several different types, all work.
Motherboard of course is: ASUS P5VD2-MX SE Is there a solution please.
You do know you can increase your integrated video's memory in the bios. Up to 1GB. (Yes, I know you currently only have 1GB of system memory) but you can kick it up to 128Mb & Vista should still run.
Your 1GB system memory is shared with the on-board video card.
I'd like you to clean out the PCI-E slot with some cotton swabs & house hold Alcohol. (do not over soak the swabs). Clean the pny's copper contacts as well. Get a really strong flash light & look into the PCI-E slot & look for dust, dirt & check the copper connectors are not bent or twisted. Re-install the PCI-E card & set the bios back to PCI-E. Try again. Even if the system reverts to weird, install the 8400's software & driver. Re-start the system. See if the system runs normal. Also would not hurt to check for Window's updates. After all that, if system does not function normally I suspect there is something wrong with the 8400 card.
Good luck & let me know if this has helped.
Have a great day.
