To start of here is the info on my system:
Sound card - Vinyl AC`97 6ch audio
(spec from abit- VT6106: 6-ch Audio on board with digital S/PDIF output)
Driver - Vinyl AC`97 Codec Combo Driver (WDM)
CPU - AMD Sempron 2600+
1833MHz <-is this the right speed for my processor?
Motherboard - ABIT VA-10
Chipset - Via KM400/VT8235
Video card - Nvidia GeForce 7800 GS
RAM - 512 MB 166MHz
Operating System - Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition SP2
VIA 4in1 Hyperion driver version - 5.09A ??? not sure
Speakers - Creative 4.1 Inspire
I can't get my mic to work with the mic input jack, and I can not get the speakers to work the way they should - personally i think that the updated drivers don't support the hardware correctly. No matter what speaker configuration I try in the Vinyl Audiodeck program I can't get both speakers to output, and have the mic work at the same time (the mic works fine in other computers). Here is an image of the back panel.
As you can see I have 5 standard audio conections, and 1 S/PDIF output. However the Vinyl Program only sees three of these inputs. Shown here -
I have tried re-installing the driver with the new drivers from both VIA and ABIT and the original drivers, each time I've ran drivercleaner to make sure that the other drivers were completely removed. Ive upgraded my BIOS. I've tested the outputs with a volt meter and they are working. I have cleaned them to make sure dust isn't interfearing. They aren't loose. As far as I can tell there isn't a setting in BIOS to make a difference. I've even tried using the realtek drivers. None of this has worked and I am out of ideas...
So if anyone has anythoughts on the issue it will be greatly appreciated. I have noticed that this seems to be a common problem people are having, over 25 post about it just on this site. None of them with the VT8235 chipset have found solutions as fas as I can tell. So I know I'm not just going crazy
My next step is a fresh install of windows, and if it works then I'm going to try and see exactly where the problem starts at and I will let everyone know what I find.
So please help me if you have a solution.
