    Hi -- Thanks for the help -- I am still a little puzzled. Can you help ?? There is a flat red wire coming out of the back of the DVD-CD R/W device and then quite a few thin wires all wrapped together (kind of like the old flat IDE type, but many multi-colored separate wires). The red flat wire goes into the mother board and then out to what looks like the hard drive. Is this the wire that goes to the sound card ??



    Thanks again - Your help is much appreciated and greatly needed -- Ron



    PS - Nothing ELSE seems to come out of the back of the DVD drive....

    Can you tell me if the sound wire is the kind of flat RED wire that comes out of the back of the DVD-R/W and then goes to the mother board and then out of that is the same kind of wire that appears to go to the hard drive. I can't understand why a sound wire goes to the hard drive and therefore I am reluctant to just try it and see what happens as I could damage something.



    The red flat wire DOES seem to be about the same size as the receptacle for the CD-In on the sound card, BUT it has 4 pins whereas the red flat ribbon seems to have a thin "channel" and not "pin holes". So it's not obvious that they go together???



    Can you help ?? Thanks

    Hi -- Sorry for the broken chain -- There is another wire coming from a thin "box" that seems to go into a massive collection of wires finally, but it is connected in the "middle" and it appears to have 4 pin type connections. It also has a red and black wire as "inputs" to the connector. Is THIS the sound cable I need? The only puzzle is it is not coming from the back of the DVD drive, but from a thin "box" that is below the DVD by about 4" or so.



    PS -- The PC is a Gateway DX442XP - Brand new. Just bought it less than 2 weeks ago.

I just purchased an siig soundwave pci and am getting "don't support this platform - o" when installing the driver via CD. I have windows 8 Pro. What is causing this problem?


Sounds like the driver software is not compatible with Windows 8. Look on packaging for requirements, or readme files on disc. You could also check on their web site for updated drivers.

Hi, I want to install a DVD player I have been given on my Evo W4000 PC. Do I need to install a digital audio cable and does the W4000have a connection for one ? My current CD-ROM droive has a 4 wire...


If you use the IDE connector, there is no need for the analogue wires if you have a good quality sound card.
Don't forget to download the drivers for your OS.
Enjoy.

Adding a PCI ethernet card?


One port on the router is an "Ethernet" port -- look closely to see the 8 wires in the socket.

You'll need a similar 8-wire connector on your computer,
and an "Ethernet-cable" that has 8 strands of wire.

Adding-in the PCI Ethernet card will add an 8-wire connector,
so that the Ethernet-cable can be connected.

Be sure to buy a 'PCI' Ethernet adapter, not 'PCI-E', and not 'ISA'.
It may come with a CD-ROM containing software to be installed.

Don't pay more than $20. Or, find a "computer-geek" -- he/she probably will have one or more "spare" PCI Ethernet cards to give to you.

I have gateway conputer windows 98 ,I upgrded the graphics card to Herculies which is ok , also I upgraded to sound blaster 5.1 live , I can here music from the speakers from the software installed, but...


Hi

the issue is that you have not connected a 3-4 pin wire from the CD drive directly to the sound card.

You will hear sound if you connect your speakers or head phones to the small plug in front of the cd drive.

You will need a audio cable between CD drive and the Sound card.

here is the cable: http://www.pcpartscollection.com/audcabforcdr1.html

sold on the above page for example, or available locally I'm sure in almost any computer repairer. or www.ebay.com

Show this picture or say that you need a audio cable between CD drive and sound card. they will know what you mean (or should)

You need to connect this wire on the cd drive back, next to the other connectors (it has 4 pins)

it also reads AUDIO

other end goes to the sound card, where there are 4 pins aswell, should say CD in or AUX.

Old Sound Card worked, new one doesn't


Is the driver installed properly try that if that is already done perhaps there is a special program it requires rare but not unheard of if you have a disc with the card see if it has a audio program with it.

I install the internal Tv card and i want to input the sound from tv card out from main board what should i do for that


What card is it? There should be a 4 pin connector on the TV card that looks like the 4 pin connector on a CD Rom drive. There is also one on the motherboard that is labeled Aux or CD. You should have the cable as it should have come with the card, but if not they are cheap at any computer shoppe. Less than 5 dollars.
If the card has no connector then it handles audio onboard and you just need to select the audio source in the TV software you are running.

Audio CD sound Prob


Various conditions may cause this problem. To troubleshoot, check the following:Microsoft Volume Control or your mixer program mute options and volume sliders. 
Connect headphones to the stereo phone jack on your CD-ROM drive’s front panel; adjust the volume control settings on the drive. If there is sound from your headphones, check the CD audio cable connection from the CD-ROM drive to the audio card. 
Ensure the speakers are properly connected to the audio card’s output connector. 
Joystick port is not working 
To troubleshoot, check the following:
The audio card joystick port conflicts with another joystick port in the system. Disable the audio card joystick port, and use the system’s joystick port. 
The joystick drivers, MSJSTICK.DRV and VJOYD.VXD, may not be installed. Uninstall the joystick, then reinstall to load the drivers. The drivers should come with the driver CD or floppy diskette with your sound card.
Computer hangs or restarts during installation
A hardware conflict may cause the computer to hang or restart during the installation procedure. Check the following to resolve the conflict:
A hardware conflict with another device in your system. 
Previously installed sound card hardware or software needs to be removed. 
The audio card is not seated in the slot properly. 
PCI bus mastering devices may be interfering with the operation of the audio card. Temporarily remove non-essential PCI bus mastering devices.
Resolving hardware conflicts
Hardware conflicts occur when two or more devices contend for the same resources. Conflicts between your audio card and another device may occur regarding the I/O address, IRQ line, or DMA channel:
Right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, and select Properties. The System Properties dialog appears. 
Click the Device Manager tab. In the Device Manager, a plus sign(+) represents an expandable list of items. A minus sign (-) represents an expanded list. A circled exclamation mark denotes a conflict. 
Double-click Sound, video, game controllers. A list of multimedia devices appears. 
Select your audio card. 
Choose the Propertis button. 
Click the Resources tab. 
Uncheck the Use automatic settings option. 
Change "Settings based on:" if alternate settings are available. 
Determine the conflict by reviewing the "Conflicting device list".
Select the conflicting item in the "Resource Settings" list. 
Click the Change Settings button. 
Use the mouse to select a new setting. 
Select OK to close each of the properties windows, and restart your computer.
Audio card is not automatically detected
To manually configure your audio card for Windows 95/98:
Click "Start" on the taskbar, and select Settings from the Start menu. 
Select Control Panel. The Control Panel group appears. 
Double-click the Add New Hardware icon. The Add New Hardware Wizard dialog appears. 
Select Next to continue. 
Choose Yes to have Windows search for new hardware, then select Next 
Select Next to continue. 
Select Finish, and follow the prompts to complete the new hardware installation.
CD does not automatically run when you insert it in the drive
To enable the "Audio insert notification" feature:
Right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, and select Properties. The System Properties dialog appears. 
Click the Device Manager tab. A list of devices appears. 
Double-click CD-ROM, and select your CD-ROM drive. 
Choose the Properties button. The CD-ROM drive properties dialog appears. 
Choose the Settings tab. 
Click the "Auto insert notification" option to enable. 
Select OK until all Properties dialogs are closed, and restart Windows for the changes to take effect.
No sound is heard from speakers
Verify the following:
Check the Microsoft Volume Control or the Audio Mixer Program mute options and volume sliders. 
Ensure the speakers are properly connected to the audio card’s output connector. 
Check the volume control and power connection of the speakers, if they are amplified. (Refer to the speakers documentation for detailed information). 
Ensure a hardware conflict does not exist between your audio card and another device in your system. 
PCI bus mastering devices may be interfering with the operation of the audio card. Temporarily remove non-essential PCI bus mastering devices. If the device is a display card, upgrade the display card drivers, or set the card to the default Windows VGA mode.
If you are experiencing no sound only during audio CD playback, see "No sound is heard from audio (music) CDs" above.

Static sounds are heard in wave files
Check to see if the static sounds are heard in all wave files. If the difficulty occurs only with certain games, refer to the software manufacturer’s documentation. To troubleshoot static sounds heard in all wave files:
Try different resource settings for the audio card, or set the card to use low DMA. 
Move the audio card to another PCI slot. Feedback from the power supply or another device may be responsible.
