ALC850 No Master Vol

Hi all,


I have the latest disc image avail on torrent (file name Leopard-Amd-10.5.1) - however i dont get any sound! The drivers are recognised by the install and I get the volume control, HOWEVER no sound.


I noticed in the AUDIO MIDI Setup area (under Utilities), the "M" (for Master) channel has volume set to 0. The problem is easily fixed IF i can change it! The slider is not enabled so I can't, only for the Channels 1 and 2 (Left and Right).


Does anyone have any ideas on this?


OR do I need to use a patched kext for in-built card (for a A8N-SLI)?


I need soooound!

this is tiger section, not leopard....


but nevertheless:


you need to add your device id into the corresponding info.plist of AppleAC97Audio.kext.

look in "AppleAC97Audio.kext\Contents\PlugIns\", you'll find several kexts - you have to edit the one that matches your chipset.

if you have windows installed, look for your device id in the device manager.


pm me if you're not sure what to do
