  4. Try downloading pci.sys from HERE maybe that will work
  5. Yup I have tried headphones and they do not solve the problem. The laptop is a Gateway 400VTX
  6. Ok I have finally gotten a hold of a CD-R and burned my linux CD.... and.... it is a hardware problem! booo So do you think there is anyway I might be able to fix this?
  7. I'm looking into buying a new PC and need assistance in picking out a Case and Power Supply. I don't want to spend too much on it, and don't need any cool lights or crap like that - just simple without being cramped. I've picked out an ATX mobo and am planning on an 8800GTX - Q6600 - and Raid HD setup - would 500Watts be enough or should I go for more?
  8. =) Thank you all It's been a wonderful day And thank you all for your awesome knowledge and your help through out my visits here =)
  9. The sound is still messed up coming out of them. Still working on getting a blank CD... ya i know... its sad in this day of age not to have an extra but i don't and my only linux CD refuses to boot up.
  10. I've deleted the audio drivers - err well at least uninstalled them - and it didn't help And yes i still have my windowsXP CD
  11. OK success! The problem with the fstab was that i must have accidently hit a key before the first # [comment] so that was the error - that is now fixed Now how i got the share to finally mount was in /etc/fstab //mycomp/Movies /home/mike/movies smbfs username=guest,password=guest,noauto 0 0 i moved it out of /mnt/movies - that didn't help, but now i will just leave it in my home directory. After that i edited /etc/rc.local mount /home/mike/movies now it mounts when i startup After 3 days of searching google i read that samba might not have started up when it was mounting everything so it nev
  12. When i do mount /mnt/movies it says that only root can mount //mycomp/Movies ob /mnt/movies it also mentions that line 1 of etc/fstab is bad.... but i never touched that anyways do i have to change the directory it mounts to or what?
  13. Event viewer has no errors related to sound at all - just the usual windows errors and dxdiag finds no problems and the tests are worthless because of course i can hear the sound it tries to play the problem is it sounds like utter crap =P
  14. I canno't get my windows share to mount correctly in the /etc/fstab i have: // /mnt/movies cifs exec,credentials=/etc/cifspw 0 0 and in the /etc/cifspw username=theusername password=thepassword When i browse to mnt/movies the directory is empty....
  15. Yesterday I was watching a movie on my laptop and everything was fine and it sounded great, towards the end i fell asleep. I woke up to my speakers making really high pitched hisses and pops. I thought nothing of it and turned off the speakers. So i tried watching a movie again later and when the movie started the audio sounded like a huge industrial fan was being blown into the microphone when the sound was being recorded. I have no idea what the heck happend but i'm begging to believe it may be a hardware problem because the sound will crackle and pop when i boot up the computer. Does any
