I reformated my desktop and put a fresh copy of XP on it since it's been freezing up like 3 times an hour. It froze once yesterday after the reformat, so I think it's hardware. Anyways, that's not my big issue. I've tried getting both speakers to work when hooked up to my desktop and I am getting nowhere. Only the right one and sub work on the desktop but when hooked to the laptop both plus the sub are just fine. I tried a few different drivers for the Realtek AC97 and nothing changes. I believe the right one is WDM A406 but it doesn't do jack. I also jiggled the speaker connection at the back of the tower while music was playing to see if it was a loose connection but that didn't do a thing either. Is there something else I can try or is this soundcard probably just toast by coincidence?
