Sound

Win2000 recognized and installed drivers for my A3D sound card. It even placed the speaker icon in the tray.

But it doesn't play any sound. The device manager does not show any conflicts. In fact, everything is working.

What should I try? The device manager isn't letting me change the resources either. The drop down and check box are grayed out.

The only issue that might be is the sound card is sharing and interrupt with the video card. But I can't change either of them. However, there are other interrupts available.

Make sure the volume is not muted - I've done this - it's a silly mistake, but it happens.  (Open the Volume Applet by double-clicking the speaker icon and verify none of the "devices" have been muted).

If your sound card is 3d, you probably have two speaker jacks on the card. If you just have two speakers, try the other one. If you have 4 speakers, try swapping the plugs on the back of the card.

The main problem appears to be that Aureal has not yet released their Windows 2000 drivers. See:

On my computer, it worked in 3-d fine on Windows 98. When I upgraded to Windows 2000, it just worked on the front (or back) two speakers. You may be seeing the same thing.

I just waited until the new set of drivers were released. That fixed it. Thanks.
