Motherboard pooped on me :(
lol just bored at work.. and angry at my computer...
so about last month... my computer just randomly completely shut down... and upon turning it back on.... my soundblaster x-fi no longer worked... sounded like complete crap actually.... so i plug my z-5500's into my onboard to my surprise that still works.... okay, so just yesterday i got an audigy 2zs platinum... thinking i'd have superior sound quality once again... but still.. SOUNDS HORRIBLE.... not as bad as the x-fi was... but still terrible.... and i've tried these in all 3 pci slots... with the x-fi.. and crap... tried it in all 3 with the audigy... and only 1 slot made any audible sound.. the other 2.... didnt even detect the card... sadness....
but before i go saying its the mobo... i think imma try the 2 sound cards out at my friends house... but after have 2 sound cards fail in a row... i'm pretty sure its the crapp ECS mobo.....
