  1. Hi all ...

    I have those speakers & the wierdest thing just happened. The master volume knob has a blue light thats always on (just a blue light really) & now its flashing & not playing any sound. The speakers use Soundmax for settings & its in place over the standard Win volume control.
    Just wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem cos im without sound & it sux! This just happened when I changed in Soundmax the setting that says what speakers they are (stereo, quad speakers or surround 5.1 speakers). All were default & I changed stereo to 5.1. Light pretty much came on after that & sound wont work now. I defaulted but nothing.

    Read or laugh ... or help!

    Hello down under!....From up over

    I'm assuming this is on board sound?
    If not , I would un-install all sound card drivers and reboot to off.
    Then remove sound card. Boot into windows to be sure it's clear run reg fix program.
    Then re-install the card and latest drivers.
    If this is on board sound Un-install all sound drivers, reboot.
    To be sure it's clear run reg fix program.

    I believe they are the latest drivers. If not these are Asus P4P800
    Post back and let us know.

    Thanx 4 that :grinthumb

    I was about to try something similar to that, but instead I changed the Digital Coaxial wire to the standard line in (green & black) wireing. It works, but you know, its not as good as digi coax! ATM sound is back on so im thinking it could be to do with the soldering of the digi wire, i've got it here at work with me today & i'll try re-soldering it & doing what u suggested above.

    Thanx again ... MG
