installing multiple graphics drivers with firewire audio drivers
Posted on 2010-01-02
hello, srry for lengthy text but I've posted bfore with no luck...
I have the ATI Radeon Hd 5870,
and the ATI Radeon Hd 3650.
When I install the driver for the 5870, the 3650 doesnt work.
Then, when I install the driver for the 3650, the 5870 works, but the sound skips really bad if I have them both on at the same time.
before , I had the ATI Radeon 2600 and the 3650 went HDMI to my Tv. I'de watch movies directly on my tv perfectly with no sound skipping. Now, with the better graphics card(5870), If I have the 3650(tv) on and do anything on the 5870(monitor), the sound skips really bad.
Im wondering if the way I installed the video drivers...installing one driver over the other until it worked, may have messed with the audio driver going to my audio device(both cards drivers include hdmi audio drivers).
I tried uninstalling just the hdmi audio driver for the 5870, but nothing changed. I tried uninstalling just the graphics driver for the 5870 and the sound actually worked from the 3650 to the tv like before, so I think its the way im installing the 5870 thats messing with the firewire mixer drivers.
If someone knows the answer to this great, but if not, could someone find the right drivers for each card and step me through how to properlly install these drivers?
I also have the ALESIS Multimix Firewire 8 (audio device), should I uninstall this and install audio drivers after all video cards have been installed???
