Sound OK, Can NOT Record


D

David

I was able to record -- with microphone yesterday -- using Sound Recorder.
Today, unable to Record with Mic. Search of internet indicates XP with
Sound Recorder.

I have both on built in sound card on motherboard as well as a separate
sound card.

Questions:
1) re: BIOS
With BIOS enabled sound works but not record.
With BIOS sound enabled I also there is an option for SoundBlaster.
I have a generic sound card Not SoundBlaster.
With BIOS disabled, this option disappears and NO sound appears to come
through speakers. Is any sound card installed in PCI slot dependent on the
BIOS option?

2) Settings/Control Panel / System Hardware shows NO Exclamations and all
devices related sound indicate working OK.

3) Settings/Control Panel/ Sound -- Record Advanced Options -- is greyed.
This seems odd. Should this be greyed?

4) Settings/Control Panel/ Sound -- Troubleshoot -- indicates record bad.
How do I proceed at this point?

You have to decide what you want to use on-board sound or a sound card. You
probably have a conflict between the 2 of them.
2) Settings/Control Panel / System Hardware shows NO Exclamations and all

Conflict


3) Settings/Control Panel/ Sound -- Record Advanced Options -- is
greyed. This seems odd. Should this be greyed?
No, but possible if conflict
4) Settings/Control Panel/ Sound -- Troubleshoot -- indicates record bad.

1) Physically take out of your PC the soundcard. Go into the BIOS and make
sure your on-board is activated. Uninstall the drivers, then download the
latest XP specific from the manufacturer's site (usually from the
motherboard maker's site.

Or

2) Go into the BIOS and deactivate the on-board sound module. Boot up,
uninstall everything related to your PCI card, then download latest drivers
and install etc.
