ok this is what is bother the hell out of me happened before and I forgot what I did last time...so here it is. when I change my volume on the task bar the sound does not beep but the case speaker does. as I turn up the volume it does not increase or come out of the speakers. This is what I've did so far...oh yeah started happening after a reformat.
1. del the driver and let windows detect it.
2. used the factory cd drivers.
3. installed xp plus (desperate)for the speaker enhancements.
there are no updated drivers needless to say it worked fine with xp drivers before the reformat.
any ideas anyone. oh yeah I use stat bar and the vol does not beep when changing the vol there either.
