[Official] ASUS M2N-SLI and M2N32-SLI Club! - Page 810

post #8091 of 12343
Just noticed a little issue that might be nothing but...

Recently updated my graphic driver to latest version so that Napoleon Total War would play more effectively (which it does) however I notice on start up my monitor blacks out momentarily twice, something it never used to do before the update.
I can live with it however, as I am now thinking of updating the chip as previously discussed, I have also just installed the latest nvidia tools thingy which occasioned me to open the nvidia control panel. This too then caused the monitor to black out about 3 times before stablizing.
Any suggestions, possibly driver related?

Cheers

i downloaded SoundMAX ADI1988 Audio Driver V6.10.01.6110 for Windows 32bit Vista. But it doesn't seem to have a control panel.

I went into bios, my HD AUDIO - AUTO. Also Front panel support was AC97. I changed that to HD AUDIO?

ok i have the soundmax control center now.

I have set the playback device in my sounds (in taskbar) as SPDIF Interface. (configure is greyed out)
In soundmax i chose playback device as spdif too. In setup it has a picture of just 2 speakers.

In soundmax if i set playback device as 'speakers' then go to setup, it has 5.1 selected. But when i test no sound comes from speakers.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S/PDIF ;"A common use for the S/PDIF interface is to carry compressed digital audio as defined by the standard IEC 61937. This mode is used to connect the output of a DVD player to a home-theater receiver that supports Dolby Digital or DTS surround sound. Another common use is to carry uncompressed digital audio from a CD player to a receiver. This specification also allows for the coupling of personal computer digital sound (if equipped) via optical or coax to Dolby or DTS capable receivers. This only supports stereo sound, unless the personal computer supports Dolby Digital Live or DTS Connect

Also check the post by revenant here http://www.nforcershq.com/forum/adi-...71280-150.html it might be of help.

I really hope my Psu is enough it is 650 watt

Minimum of a 550 Watt power supply.
(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 38 Amps.)

well if you run 1 card your should be fine, however i would recommend if going sli to get a trusted brand like corsair, or thermaltake, or one of the other top end psu's, around an 750-850w range with a good 12 rail. the last thing you want to do is overdraw a psu, you risk it cooking everything in your system if it pop's..

my low end 700w starts to get good and warm with my sli when i game, or when i fold on my system. luckily it stays in spec ranges, but i will be replacing it soon.

well it has an added 12v of 57amp. so you will be very close if not at its max output when gaming, folding, or benching. just have to try and distribute the power evenly on your drives and accessories. it looks like it only has 2x 6pin pci-e connectors, if so you will need another psu anyways if i remember right, because each card takes 2x 6pin pci-e. although you could use 2 of the 4pin molex to pci-e 6 pin adapters but it will be hard to safely distribute the power evenly to not overload one of the 12v rails.

Well as usual thx for all input. I'll just throw the second card in our second pc to replace a 8500 gt. That Psu is a 550w 12v@30amps.
Once I upgrade the Psu I'll get another card then.
One day I hope to be as helpful as u guy are to me.
