Help With Sound VT1612A / PCCHIPS m925alu Motherboard

Hey guys,

 

I just installed 10.4.8 on my Celeron D 2.66Ghz. Runs nice for most things. All I have is onboard video (m925alu PCCHIPS motherboard). And onboard sound.

 

My soundcard shows up under the system preferences/Sound section as "AC97 Audio (PCM)". From what I gathered from some websites is this card is a VT1612A.

 

This is the second machine I've installed on, I had the same onboard setup on my other board I used and I had sound, but even though this one says it's detected, it seems like i get high cpu usage when I try to play sounds and certain programs will lag/lock if I try playing sound (e.g. Reason).

 

Firefox is VERY choppy when I play mp3s off a flash mp3 player. Again no sound.

 

If anyone has any experience with this board or knows something specific I might need to do to get this working (it should be supported?) I would really appreciate it.

 

Also, Does anyone know if Sound Blaster Live works, or Turtle Beach cards? I have both of these I could put in the machine.

 

Thanks!

No, different boards. I'm pretty sure it's just different versions on the AC97 sound card. I discovered that I do in fact have sound... Through line out only, but it is VERY VERY faint. I have the volume on everything cranked and I can't seem to get a decent amount of volume out of the thing. So now it seems to be a matter more of how can I get the volume boosted up.

It's ok man. What I ended up doing is taking another look at one of the sound card compatability lists and realized that Creative Labs CT810 or whatever it is... I have one laying around. So I put that in the box. Works like a charm.

 

Lucky no?

 

Thanks though.
