Only twelve years

The left "Juster" brand tinny speaker that came with my first store bought rig died. WTH? Only twelve years from $10 speakers? What a rip!

Not sure but I think there's a hint of Sarcasm in here...LOL

Btw, I'm STILL using the the Boston Acoustics speaker system that came with my X500 Gateway computer 10 years ago with my new system!

I didn't know if my sound card or the speaker was at fault. Wanting to avoid a second trip to Infodreck, I bought a $30 Altec Lansing 2.1 set of speakers-feel that bass! (Nudge nudge, wink wink.) And a $40 Creative(arrgh!) sound card. The original left hand speaker was bad, not the sound card.
I haven't turned off my monitor at night for a week. The last time I switched it off over night, the power button needed to be clicked six times to let there be light. So I picked up a 19" widescreen $150 monitor, too.
No one can say that i'm presentless this Yule!

You know, I installed my Soundblaster Audigy card for sound when I first got this system & it sounded good.
But I was curious as to how the integrated sound chip would sound as it's a Intel High Definition Audio chip!
Much to my surprise it sounded much better!
So all I'm using now it just the speakers & pluggin them directly into the board!

That's great news. Creative, they got a lot of nerve. I'd like one of the Asus sound cards but they're too rich for my wallet.

Music humbug. I like the sound of little fingers slaving in my sweatshop!

"History will prove him to be a good president." Beyond laughable. They don't give a hoot. I'm sure that lil' bush has at least a trillion socked away, daddy is finally proud. Goodbye, may shoes fl...

I've got the same card. Do you mean just install it and let windows pick up & install the drivers? No SB stuff? What is the audio on your board? I'm curious because my onboard audio is Azalia Hi-Def 7.1 Channel and sounds pretty good with the Logitech X540 5.1 Channel Surround Audio System.
