3 seprate problems with my K8N Neo Platnium (MS-7030)
« on: 18-February-05, 00:38:42 »

Hey,

I am having three seprate but very annoying problems with my new K8N Neo Platnuim. Two of the problems are audio related and one has to do with my Sata hard drive.

Audio- First of all my audio is reversed and has been for awhile (annoying for games). I also have had a problem with the drivers. I have a stereo hooked up through an optical cable and with the MSI realtek 97 (newest driver) it doesnt work. So Then I tried a different realtek driver from asus site and my optical cable worked but still reversed sound. I decided to go back to the msi driver cuase they came out with a new one and same old problems (reversed sound and no sound through optical).

SATA- Secondly I purchased a maxtor 200 gig hd and tried to install windows xp on it will leaving my windows intact on my old hard drive. Now whenever i try and boot off my new hard drive it says error operating system even if i format it and this windows works on my old hd.

Anyways sorry for my poor grammer and spelling but i would really appreciate some help on these three subjects.
Thanks

Nobody wants to help me :nooo:.... I read on a different post that u can only get 5.1 surround sound for movies through optical. You cant even get the sound check to test speakers other then R/L through optical.... This seems rediculus to me!! I have to go through analog if i want surround sound!!! Anyways this still doenst solve my problem of reversed sound or the fact that the MSI realtek driver doesnt work for optical and an asus driver (which i will now reinstall knowing about the fact that my 5.1 surround sound dreams through an optical cable will never happen ;-(() Also my problem with my SATA drive.

P.S. Is it possible to have my audio hook up from the case to the mobo on backwards explaining the reversed sound?

Anyways thanks in advance for anyone who helps me :worship:....

Of course we want to help you...but depends if we can figure out what the problem is   ;-))

One thing i can tell you, the reversed sound can't be due to the connections being the wrong way round, at worst this will reverse left and right (which may be what you mean is happening ? ).

Sound - can't add anything to the good advice given by brummieman.

SataL Did you have the IDE MAXTOR 60GB ATA 133 connected when you installed windows on the sata,

When you install windows on your sata drive disconnect the IDE drive. This is a windows issue it wants to make the system drive on the first drive it sees (e.g 1'st master) , meaning it will be C: and hosts the os boot files .

Then use the proper HD boot order later when other drives is installed .

Looked but can't find any of the 3 different sites where I have seen that the only time you get surround sound with optical out is with DVD's or music or some such stuff.  If you want surround in games you have to use the analog outputs.

I found out that my case (Antec Sonata) uses the standard intel case connector and so does my mobo so thats how i hooked it up. But I found out thats what is reversing my sound so now I hafta hook up my case via the individual pins (Annoying).... for now I have my headphones hooked to the back of my mobo but I get a slight static??? so i better fix the case connectors soon.
