  1. Not exactly about the motherboard, but I have not had any luck anywhere else. I have a problem with my sound. In my browsers, Internet Explorer and Firefox, I cannot get any sound to play. I also have problems loading some videos. CNN’s video for example. I have only gotten sound to play from my browsers when QuickTime is used to play the video or sound. I also have Windows Media Player 11. I have had trouble getting it to play anything. Not sure if that’s related or just general Microsoft bugs. Every other program plays sounds like they are supposed to. I tried reinstalling the drivers off the creative cd, but it didn’t change anything. Reinstalled both browsers, before and after reinstalling drivers. I think there must be some setting somewhere on my computer set to mute, but I just can’t find any sound settings that are set low or to mute. Any ideas on what could be causing this odd issue? Thanks for your help.

  2. Ocean, I'll give those ideas a try. Addiarmadar, I cannot get into windows so I can't run the WD disk check... Unless there is another way to do it without logging into windows? Supershanks, The previous IDE harddrive was disconnected before windows installation. Also I cannot get into windows to use any programs. It stops as the blue windows screen(ussually the one where the request for password or choosing adminstrator/user comes up) but the choice to enter password or choose user never comes up. All 4 power connections are made to motherboard. As to prime or sp2004... Just an average joe user. Not sure what those are. I also got some specs listed at the bottom of my posts. I use an OCZ ModStream OCZ45012U ATX/BTX/PCI Express/SATA 550W Power Supply.
  3. Not really sure what is wrong so I decided to post it here. Been told it might be a driver not compatible with Windows XP SP 2, but I think I might have a bad hard drive. Tell me what you all think.

I recently decided to upgrade from an older 80 gig IDE hard drive to a SATAII. Installed a fresh copy of windows onto it... Then I started to notice problems. Blue screens of death. BAD_POOL_HEADER was one I saw when the screen stayed up long enough for me to see. Tried installing new drivers to see if that was a problem, but didn't really notice a difference. After a couple weeks the problem of blue screens stopped. Then a little while after that I suddenly started having stability issues. The computer would suddenly cut out. Seemed to happen a lot with firefox... Not really sure, but probably not since a new problem occured. I was plaing WoW and suddenly the computer froze. The moniter speakers came on and made noise like a radio with bad reception makes. I don't use the monitor speakers. I have a small 2 speaker set I use. I tried rebooting after the freeze and the computer would go through the normal steps in booting. The windows logo with black background would appear, the one with the moving bar near the bottom middle. Then it would go to the windows logo screen with a blue background right before asking for the password. Only nothing would appear. Just a blue windows logo screen with the two lines at the top and bottom. I retried loading several times (including trying safe mode) but it would ALWAYS get stuck at this point. One time when I tried to bottom I got an error on boot up saying Read Disk Error, but never got it again. Any ideas on what the problem is? Thanks for the help.
  4. I was wondering if buying a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Sound Card would be worth it. Is it much better than the onboard sound from the NF4 Ultra-D? Thanks for the help.
