  1. After installing a new Graphics Card (ATI Radeon 9550) I have lost all sound on my computer. Naturally ATI, say it's nothing to do with their install !!!!

    My machine use(d)s Soundmax Integrated Digital Audio, I have checked the device manager and there are no conflicts and it is reporting as 'working properly'.

    The following are installed:

    Audio Codecs
    Legacy Audio Drivers
    Legacy Video Capture Devices
    Media Control Devices
    SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio
    Video Codecs

    The drivers are the latest from Soundmax (dated 27/5/03) that are suitable for my machine.

    The location is listed as: PCI bus 0, device 31, function 5.

    I have a Compaq 6046ea P4 1.7GHZ machine running Win XP Home SP2 with 1gb of ram.

    HELP !!!!!!!!! :(

    That is weird. Ok just to narrow the search, uninstall the video card in Device M, reboot and let windows find and install default AVG drivers. See if sound is back before installling ATI drivers.

    Another thing to check is the sound card make sure it's seated properly and you didn't kncok anything out of place when install the new vid card. I know, noobie thing but it does happen to the best of us.
