I was running an Audigy2 ZS platinum, with most of these components, but that will be going in my new comp. I want to run on-board sound, on this one for now. I am getting NO sound at all. I do not have front panel audio, and as far as I can tell from other posts, I have the jumpers set right. I tried an install of the audio drivers, but not the chipsets. The bios is set to auto, as far as I can tell. I would appreciate any help, in setting up this comp. I have to wait for my new PSU, for my new computer, and to build that. Once that is built, I will probably do a clean install, on this old one. I think it would be a good time to flash the BIOS also. Any suggestions, on reformting/reinstalling etc, on this older computer?
*edit* Haha...such a nOOb. I tried reinstalling the chipset drivers, and VIOLA! I got sound. It is not what I am used to, but what can I expect, when switching from a high-end soundcard, to on-board eh? I would still like any, and all recomends, when re-building this comp. I want to start fresh, and make sure I can get everything possible out of this comp.
stupid question too, can I plug headphones directly into the back panel on the mobo? It seems like a real high level output, and these are nice phones, I don't want to damage. I always had my comp hooked through a stereo, and plugged my phones into that. I am noticing a slight audio crosstalk(?) Little noises in the background, when no audio is playing.
