since i bought my new computer it has been alot of trouble. everything till now i dealt with or fixed. about 4 days ago i turned on my computer and the audio was really really slow motion. Everything from the sound windows makes when it starts up, to windows media player plays slowly. I know this is not a speaker thing because i am using my stereo as my speakers and it plays CD's just fine. Now i have no idea whats going on. i though i installed the drivers right. just incase i reinstalled the realtek audio drivers about a million times. my mother board is a MSI k8n sli. Im so confused because there are 2 types of audio drivers. there is the realtek audio drivers or there is the Nforce 4 audio drivers. i have installed both and neither correct the slow motion problem. sometimes theres no sound at all. im wondering if this is a powersupply issue because i have a 350w power supply supporting 2 6600 gt's in SLi an amd athlon 3500+ a dvd burner and everything else in my computer. i have tried everything i can think of. the kicker is once in a while i ill boot my computer and the audio will work fine. this happens like once in a while so im pretty sure my on board audio isnt fried. another weird thing is when the audio does work it only works on the 8 channel setting. this is weird because i only have 2 speakers!!!! lol i really have no idea whats going on so i just removed all audio drives and currently i am using my computer without sound.
sorry for the long post but i tried to mention everything and not leave anything out. as im sure you all know by now i am completely at the breaking point of my patience. any help or a possible solution would be greatly greatly appreciated. and just to note i currently have no funds what so ever to buy a sound card, so hopefully thats a last last last resort.
Edit: oh i forget to mention, when i am installing the nforce audio drivers it asks something about nforce 4 RAID or something. i did not install this or the other Nforce 4 sw something because it said i needed a floppy drive and sadly i do not have a floppy drive LOL.
