View Full Version : Sound issues

06-14-2006, 08:19 AM
I have read on this forum many time about the AC97 on board sound causing problems and the fix to turn the hardware accelerator off.

I just bought a Dfi LanParty Nf4 SLI-DR motherboard with Karajan Audio now this isn't on board sound (as i can take it off) but from what i can work out it uses the AC97 Codec.

My question is will i have any problems?
Thank for any answers

I have an ASUS K8N with the N-Force 3 250 chipset. It uses a Realtek AC97 codec. The only problem I had was with the Media Player Runtime Codecs. To be more specific, with the LAME MP3 DECODER. I had to install a diff version when I played FEAR and that made the game crash back to the desktop everytime I started a patrol. But I had no problems with the sound acceleration, just with the software codecs.
