This is not a problem, just something I am dying to know. Up until last week, my method of firing up my computer has always been computer first, display second, speakers last. It was only last week that I powered up the speakers before the computer, and discovered this:
When I boot up my computer, immediately after hitting the power switch, a female voice comes from my speakers and repeats a phrase I can't quite make out, the same phrase each time, twice at each powerup. I have recorded it but still cannot make out what the lady is saying.
What is this? Is it a motherboard or a sound card feature? Is the system haunted? Am I picking up a radio station? (-:
The system is an:
Asus P4B motherboard - P41.6 CPU
Avance AC97 audio with Philips speakers
nVidia RIVA TNT2 64 video
