I am having a problem with sound on my new system....I have installed AOE II the conquerors, civilization III, Diablo II (expansion), Baulder's gate II and UT.
All the games play fine, except UT and BGII--shortly after I open them, about 1 minute, I lose sound completely on my pc. I can exit the game, reboot, and have sound back. Moreover, in BGII, the movies will not play 7 out of 10 times, and they lock the whole pc.
My system (about a month old):
1024x768 in 32-Bit Color, NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400/64megs, Ver. 4.0
75 gig HD; 65gigs free
INtel P4, 1.5ghz
built-in sound card:VIA AC'97 Enhanced Audio (WAVE)
VIA PCI 10/100mb fast ethernet
Windows 98 SE
I have tried the latest 4in1 drivers from viaarena.com.
I am considering a new sound card and a new motherboard. my home-made PII with and asus board, sound blaster value card and 12meg riva tnt play everything, movies and all, fine.
Anyone have any advice or experience with amptron boards?
