Default Re: sound not working properly after installing Vid card

What video card did you install? What soundcard do you use or motherboard model if you use onboard sound? Operating System?

It's probably because that video card has a built in sound chip for HDMI.

What you need to do is change your default sound device. (on XP) Go to Control Panel> Sounds and Audio Devices> Audio> then select the default device under Playback.

You may also have to change your sound devices in Ventrilo setup as well.

Try that.
