OK.. I just finished overclocking my CPU and the GPU and then realized I don't have sound anymore. It's like the sound card (onboard) disappeared. I played a bit with the BIOS but the soundcard is enabled. I disabled a parallel port and a serial port which I don't use though. I enabled them again but the soundcard is still "missing"

Any ideas?
Oh and "add hardware" doesn't seem to help at all.

How come I lost it right after doing these changes? It worked an hour ago!
Ok how do you call it then? Audio controller?
Could it be one of the BIOS settings I changed?

well yes it does sound like something u changed caused the problem, change the settings back to stock, and see if you get the onboard sound back. if so then something u changed in the bios turned it off or something.... then we can try to figure out what that exaclty is...

Alright, it seems it happens when I overclock the CPU. When it returns to default settings the audio controller is back.

Yea but it happens again when I overclock it without changing anything else. It is the overclocking that is causing it

Well we all have to start somewhere, It's the speed at which the pci slot runs at . If it goes too high it goes haywire.

I know.
But when you play with numbers/options and what not that you have no clue what they are or do.
And complain when it isnt working.
Then I say go read some guides.

Can I control that somehow?

I am trying to find out how it's done. Hitting walls makes me learn hopefully.

And everytime someone wants to learn to overclock they dont bother reading anything.
They attempt it.
Fail.
Complain on the forum about only achieving such and such an overclock.
And it not being stable and whatnot.
And then ask for step by step instructions on how to fix it.
And people give it to them.
Wasting there own time.
When all of these problems would never have happened had this person read a few guides.
