Jolting sound in NEW computer

Hey there, I have used this sound card (audiophile 2496) in my old computer and loved it! I bought a new soundcard (same modle) and a new computer, more powerful spec then old computer. But I am having a problem with the sound. When I play anything, DVDs, MP3s, Games ...etc The sound Jolts the computer temporary slows down (we're talking with a few seconds) and then for about 3minutes everything is fine, then it jolts again.

I've uninstalled/disabled the onboard sound device, My graphics card has an ATi HD audio output for the HDMI cable, so I have disabled that too, just incase, I've reinstalled the drivers for the soundcard... got a tech guy to look at it, he cant see whats up, other then he wants to reinstall XP again...

but get this... if I put my USB headphones into the computer the soundcomes out FINE no jolts... it uses a different sound output, so I know it has to be the soundcard....

any ideas?? I record piano, and vocals and really would love my new computer to be working,... hahahahaha :D

Audiophile 2496 no sound

try either right click the speaker icon on the bottom right hand corner of the screen "open volume mixer" click :devices" and select the card you installed. if that fails, go to device manager and disable any other cards the the computer has so it wont conflict. if that fails take it into geeksquad at best buy to see what is going on.

Cant get engine light to stay off on a 2003 saab 95 estate 2.3t. replaced di unit and plugs, light went out for a week then came back on again. any ideas??

That light can come on for any number of reasons, even not having the fuel cap tight enough. If the O2 sensor detects rich exhaust or any other sensor picks up something too far out of spec then it will flip the light on. See here: Lots of great FAQs at this site and a great place to get parts. I bought a couple of turbos and other things from them.

Let me give you a word of warning about the car you have. I had a 1999 Saab 95, same basic model you have. Same bodystyle. I loved the car when it was new but when it got past 10 years old, it became a money pit. Do yourself a favor and get out of it now. If you haven't had the A/C / Heater box break on you, you will. Bushings underneath wear out and then it pops all the time when you back up. Struts go out, the turbo disintegrates, the dash computer display goes out....just not worth it to keep up with. I bought a brand new Ford Mustang and am very happy. I can replace the parts for 4 wheels on a Ford for the price of one on the Saab. I have fond memories of that little turbo taking me to 140+ but after a while I just had to put the old girl out to pasture. Good luck. :)

I bought a new Magnavox LCD HD TV and need an audio system

Their not showin it on this site, but go directly to the Sony site and look up the Sony Bravia DAV-HDX 285 system. Its an awesome inexpensive system (compare to other systems). Features everything you need including the reciever and 5 wireless speakers and 1 wireles woofer. I love the wireless stuff because your not trying to hide wires, it looks nice, and its easy to install. Hope this helps.

Front bose speakers and bass module stopped puttimg put sound

If you're saying you hooked the Bose speakers directly to the Yamaha's amp instead of the prescribed way through their own bass module - they're cooked.

Problem hearing a new recording after I press '2trk ito mix button?


You need tro set up the monitoring capability in your recording software under either hardware profiles or audio settings. All "good" recording software has this monitoring capability. There's another thing - I got rid of my Multimix 8 USB, because it wasn't allowing me to monitor as I recorded new tracks. At first it did, then about a year into using it, this function stopped, and when I investigated further, it was coming up as a single duplex sound card in my hardware profiles in Windows XP. It is as if that functionality of the soundcard component had burned out. Maybe on the circuit board...

I now have a gina Echo that I bought off eBay, and it was the best thing I ever bought. It is a hard card - no latency! Full monitoring! 24 bit recording! A hard card with a breakout box instead of USB! My recordings have never sounded better. The best thing about it is that I sold my ALesis adn was able to by the gina and have money left over - they are out of production (stupidly) and can still be purchased for anywhere between $50.00 - $80.00

You may or may not have a problem with your mixer - check your software settings first. If that isn't the problem, eBay is open 24 hours...

Am I forgetting something?

Your old TV took off the sound before the volume control and the new one takes it off after that control. Not much you can do without going in and doing some rewiring. You could use a VCR for your TV tuner source and then you would be able to turn down your TV sound and still get sound to your surround system. Good luck.
