    I can bring this to the place where I bought my build but I was hoping I'd get this fixed myself. Is it possible the sound/board was affected due to humidity?

    How do I reset it? This is the BIOS settings for sound (not sure if there are more). I've tried setting the Front Panel to ACL97 instead of HD, setting the SPDIF Out Type to another option but I still get the distorted sound.

    *blushes* Yes, that worked. I'm not running a hot (literally) 8800GT. Hopefully that will be enough to give a try with X-COM: Enemy something game. And now I have a problem with my audio - heck. I have an Asus P8H77-M, I only have a headset, audio was fine until a week or so ago. I don't...

    Is this the screen? I changed it to PCI and PCI-E (it was previously set to Auto - which should have worked in the 1st place?) Still didn't work...

    That makes sense. So I restarted the PC, went into BIOS, but couldn't find the option to switch the board. I may not be looking at the right place.

    Interesting thing happened. I plugged in the pci connector to the card already socketed in the mobo. Then I boot up and I can't see the screen. I take the card out and I can see the screen again. The computer is booting, I just can't see anything with the card in.

    Yes, that's the one. Checking the box in front of me while typing this... EDIT: Yes, the PSU does have that PCI 6-square connector after all, I had to unscrew the other side of the case to see it. I'll turn off the PC and try again.

    Looks like I'm screwed. My power supply doesn't have that square shape connector. I checked inside the case and the power supply boxes. Btw, that is exactly what my card needs, I noticed it has a square shape plugin for that connector at one of its edges.

    Not at all, actually I don't know what that connector is and I'm looking on the web for what it is.... and also checking my mobo boxes to check for connectors.

    My older 8800Gt

    A friend of mine gave me a 8800 GT. When I get it into the mobo and power on, it does a high pitch continuing sound - something tells me this isn't good so I turn it off. My current build has no video card (just the mobo's), so I thought I'd appreciate my friend's gift since he got himself a...

    Remember though that the Intel 330 SSD 120GB is 99,90 euros and the Samsung 830 128GB is 109,90. They said the Intel was with a promotion, I don't know if it costs more in the US or not. But the Intel is 120 GB and 100 euros. The Samsung 830 is 128GB and 110 euros. 10 euros for...
