Question sound problem!!...pls help (noob)

Hi, I just installed MDK 10 yesterday and I am experiencing an interesting problem. I have two sound devices: on board ac97 & st audio dac 2000 (pro card).

I use KDE (which is very cool) as my gui.

Anyway, what I am experiencing is that when kde loads the sound is going at a faster rate and is higher pitched than it should be. (it defaults to the st audio card which uses the env24 chip).

This affects any sound output (games apps whatever). from what I've read, it's too much of a pain to try and change the default device to the on board sound.

Can someone help with getting the sample rate right with my default card??

Many thanks


PS...any chance someone can send me the link for the correct nvidia driver for my system (as there are a fewon the site)??

Try using Kmix or the gnome-alsamixer (on CD) to setup your sound card.

Look here for your nvidia driver :
If your looking for a GeForce graphics driver you should end up here for your system. Version: 1.0-5336 is latest at time of post.

good luck
