    grrr to the cable .com and sound card Q?

    omg talk about so crap azz night... I just put a new powersupply and a Geforce 4 in yesterday gamed all day work awesome

    wake up last nigh around 8pm Boot my pc up and my pc link on my cable modum is out ummm

    ithink great friday night and my damn network card went out make me start thinken o no whats goin on so i rip it out change pc slots freakout blah blah

    but still out . so today when the pc store open i went and got a new NIC put her in and no go still out i am like wtf (at this point i am like MOBOs F'ED) but the pcs work ok

    so as my last resort i call my cable techs.. he say well yea we turnd your seves off. WHAT?

    he's like well i can see u payed it but the shut off order never got stoped payed it 6 days ago

    well charter (ISP) i thank you for a night of ripen my rig apart and screwn with windows and freaken out

    Now thats some bad damn timing

    But ther is a Q to all this now my soundcard SB live
    on start up and only when i turn my pc all the way off (not reboot)
    i get this crackling when boot make windows music
    and some time it stays and some time its just at start up

    odd part is if i log of and log back on it fixxes it

    Hey sett,
    damm that's f***ed of that isp ! If i was you i'd call em and complain my arse off and get a free month or 2 of service just for da headache they gave me!

    Ok about the sound, did u try and change the windows chime?(boot-up and shut-down music)
    see if that helps
    also check your drivers for your sound card
    I had the same problem, i switched da windows chime and updated my drivers, problem gone poof
    Hope this works 4 ya

    rule number 1 for cable/dsl internet users, always blame the ISP first



    i had 60 feet of line replaced before i let them change a network card in my pc, it was the network card that time tho lol
