  • Epia MII10000 - Sound in *nix, but not windows

    Title says it all, really...I made an nLite disk, installed XP, set up minlogon and EWF and HORM and all that stuff, then realized I hadn't setup the audio yet. Well, I installed the drivers for it from here and then fired up Winamp. No output. This is using known-good speakers with everything unmuted in windows and winamp.

    I then tried the VT1616 Six-Trac Vinyl drivers from Via Arena, with no change whatsoever.

    Thinking then it was a hardware problem, I popped in a Knoppix CD and rebooted. Connected the MP3 drive, ran mpg123, and got sound.

    It would seem to be a driver issue, but I've tried the two listed above as well as the CD drivers, and not once have I gotten any output. Oh, and I also tried a full-out XP reformat and reinstall (using full XP, not nLite) and still nothing.

    I know I could buy another sound card, but I shouldn't have to and don't really want to. Is there something I'm missing in getting the onboard audio working in Windows with this thing?

    Update - it almost has to be a driver issue - A soundblaster PCI works straight up.
    Can't be hardware cause the onboard works in *nix.

    Which friggin driver does this board need?

      Is the on-board sound enabled in your BIOS?

        Yep.

        Windows sees the audio device, there's no driver conflicts listed, and winamp (and when i tried it, the VIA audio control panel thing) both show output on the eq spectrum.......but I get nothing out of the speakers. I tried headphones, also, and got nothing. Both the speakers and headphones are known-good and I had the vol on everything, windows, winamp and speakers/headphones cranked to max.

            RESOLVED: I R teh moron

            Figured I'd post this in case anybody runs into the same problem. Turns out it was hardware, kind of - the jumpers on the F_AUDIO block were not in place, so the board was only going to output to the not-connected front-panel extension. You have to short pins 5&6 and 9&10 (see the manual) for the back panel ports to work.

            I didn't think of this originally because for whatever reason, I got sound in knoppix. Go figure.
