    I am running windows 2kpro on an MVP4 chipset or MVP3 not sure, but I tried to install a PCI aureal vortex SQ1500 sound card. The drivers and everything loads fine but I get no sound. I have the updated 4in1 driver installed that doen't help. I need a patch or something that will end my misery. Please help before I shoot my PC.

    Is there anything else that it can be? I know there was alot of problems with the sound blaster cards, so is there any thing like that, that could be causing the problem?

    If you are still having problems after that try going to http://www.vortexofsound.com

    The page specifically for the 1500 running under Windows2000 is located at http://www.vortexofsound.com/drivers/drv_vawdm.htm

    Pretty lengthy set of instructions there for a successful install - probably want to print that one.

    Good luck to you disavowed:thumb:

    The problems between the VIA chipsets and the SoundBlaster cards were ironed out in older 4-in-1 driver sets. I believe that they were fixed at about the 4.31 area. Since the current drivers out are 4.37, this should not be an issue.

    Besides, this issue wouldn't effect you anyway since you stated that your sound card is an Aureal model.

    Have you checked the manufacturers website to make sure that you have up to date Win2k drivers for the card?

    Unfortunately Aureal went the way of 3Dfx - bye bye.

    Vortex of Sound is the site nowadays for all things Aureal, kept very up to date by a dedicated enthusiast. When it comes to drivers and info for keeping these outdated but much loved Aureal cards going, the Vortex of Sound is second to none:thumb:

    :snip: neither on of the fixes worked! Any more ideas? Should I delete the drivers from my motherboard sound? I think I may have done that once and it didn't work. Can't remember.

    Should I disable it in BIOS? Or somewhere else?
