Re: recomendations

so if the card can run with one why do they even make them with two? The PSU my brother has only has one PCI-E 6 pin plug so I need a card that it can push.

Re: Sound card

I assume VON means voice over network...I don't use it at all right now. I did try a set of earbuds and it appears the headphones are bad. That does not explain the speaker wierdness but they are a 4.1 set that i got 3 months pre Y2K so I should not be surprised they don't work well. Thanks for all ...

Re: Sound card

2.1,4.1,5.1,7.1 and headphones. My speakers are really old and the headphones are as well so it is possible that they are both bad or the jack is worn in a way that makes clean connection hit or miss...

Re: Sound card

Its an Audigy SE and I am using the green plug. I checked the game settings and all they have as options is setting the volume of dialog and sound affects. In the Creative settings menu they have different speaker configurations but only one headphones setting. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product....

Re: Sound card

No I have not. I don't recall ever having to do that in the past with a PCI sound card. Wouldn't the system still detect something installed in the PCI slot?

Re: Palm desktop

Thanks Bubba. I was trying to find the file on a crashed HDD that I still need to run a recovery program on. It seems the entire My Documents folder is lost so I was hoping the info was not in that file.

multicore drivers

I seem to remember that I had a dual core optimization driver that I had installed under XP. I now have Win7 64 bit. Do I need a simular driver to maximize my quad core CPU? If yes where do I find it?

Re: where to start

no led. It wont stay on long enough to run any tests really. I just bought and installed an OEM copy of Windows 7, am I going to be able to register it if I have to get a new MOBO and ram ( since I have ddr2 I would rather get a MOBO with DDR3 if I can ) ?
