hi

I got a new video card. A Radeon 9250 for PCI. I unintalled the only thing I could find related to my current video card, which said "Intel Graphics Media Accelerator" or something like that. After that, I replaced waht looked like my video card with my 9250, then installed it using the disc I got. It worked fine, Half Life 2 and such were running well, but for one reason or another, the sound was extremely low. I checked the sound preferences and just... a bunch of stuff, but no good. I later found out that the card I replaced was the sound card, so I decided to put the card back, but the sound was no better. So, I system restored back to before I uninstalled my "Intel Graphics Accelerator", but the sound just got lower. Now I can barely hear it at maximum volume. Any ideas on why?

HELP HELP HELP

please.

(1) – Where is your Monitor Connected – Usually Monitor Connectors - [15 pin VGA] - are attached to Video Cards – That was Clue #1 –
(2) – Need info on Sound Card
(3) – Need info on Speakers – [External] – [Internal]
(4) – Where are Speakers connected – [Sound Board] – [PC Jacks]
(5) – Do you have Installation CD for – [Sound Board]
(6) – Do you have Installation CD for – [Intel Graphics Media Accelerator] –

Probably you need to – [Update Sound Card Driver] – via [Device Manager] – By removing the Sound Board – You are probably using – [Onboard Sound] –

Need more info on PC – So Download the Free Home Edition of – [Everest] – see link below –

My monitor is connected to the connector that is attached to my video card.

My sound card is.. Intel 82801FB ICH6 - High Definition Audio controller

Not sure if that's correct though. That's what I got when I went to Multimedia and then PCI/PnP Audio on Everest.

I don't think info on speakers are necessary because I forgot to mention that the same problem occurswith my headsets.

I don't think my sound board had a installation CD. It's the default one that came with the CPU.
And same goes for Intel Graphics MEdia Accelerator. No isntallation CD.

While I was waiting for somebody to respond to this topic, I decided to search for alternatives. I've found a volume amplifier which has provided me with a below average sound, and of course the amplifying has dulled the quality of the sound.

If anybody can, instead of figuring out what's wrong with my computer, find me a (free) volume amplifying software that I can download which would greatly increase my volume, it would be much appreciated.

What does Everest indicate about your Motherboard -

Ok – I am just being thorough – But if you don’t think so – – –

I later found out that the card I replaced was the sound card,


Good thinking –

I don't think my sound board had a installation CD. It's the default one that came with the CPU.

Do you have any CD pertaining to PC – that came with PC

If anybody can, instead of figuring out what's wrong with my computer, find me a (free) volume amplifying software that I can download which would greatly increase my volume, it would be much appreciated.

Everest says that my motherboard's name is:
Asus PTGD1-LA

I'm sure a CD came with my computer, I can find it with thorough searching but I don't have the time at the moment.

A minor detail-
On websites, when I use the mouse wheel, an odd buzzing noise goes off in my headsets.
