Help! SoundCard went MUTE


Hi

I have a problem with my sound card (again), the problem started few days ago when suddenly my system just couldn't detect the sound card (I still use dual boot and the SC wasn't detected under MDK 9.1 nor W2K). Tried everything even unpluging and repluging the card to it's PCI slot but didn't work. I also checked the BIOS and I really don't understand how but it appeared that BIOS reset it self somehow because some of the settings were back to the original state, for example there is an onboard soundcard that I disabeled but now it was enabeled again, anyway I set everything back to my previous settings and try to reboot but still nothing happen the Creative SB Live! 5.1 was still not detected ....

Then the next day under W2K the card was working again as if nothing was wrong in the first place, however under MDK 9.1 it still doesn't work. Whenever I boot the KMix speaker icon in my systray appears Mute and even if I unmute it there is still no sound. I ran the MCC and everything appears normal is it was before minus the sound that is ...

Can anyone please help me in how I can reconfigure the soundcard and make it work again?

When I first installed it worked right away and I would prefer not to reinstall my system again, specialy because it took me some time to make everything I need to work properly and to update some packages like for example URPMI it takes hours over the dial up modem hikz ...

Many thanks in advance ...

There's your problem, I think. Mandrake is still initialising the module for your onboard card - slot-1
You need to edit modules.conf and put a # at the start of that line, so it is ignored. Hopefully that will sort you out. ( Reboot afterwards, too).
