Looks like you got some sound
advice, there semper.
Sorry, couldn't resist the pun.
Poor me, I don't even have onboard audio anymore. I've got a POS HP computer, and the original HD trashed itself, and the backup copy of the
installation discs that I made didn't work. Ok, so the computer really isn't a POS, but I really hate HP with their installation arrangement. (A
private partition on the main HD, for installation) I'm stuck with a Bluetooth audio setup. No money right now for a sound card. I used to have
SoundBlaster Audigy card, but accidentlt trashed the card with my old computer.
I guess some sound (or noise) is better than none at all. :shk:
Anyway I have Realtek HD audio supposedly, but I have tried many times to install the proper drivers, to no avail. The computer does not recognize the
onboard audio. But does recognize a couple of items listed as (unknown device, that do not install drivers even using the driver search function) I
might just bite the bullet and give HP a call, or email. But I know already that the warranty is voided. So any advice they give me is bound to cost a
