Hi Tom-As I mentioned to you, my order from BSW arrived very promptly.
Yahoo-CardDeluxe is in and working! Beautiful sound now emanates from my
computer, runs over to the receiver, jumps out onto a little pair of Bose
301's, and zaps into my ears. No chirps, chips, hum, hiss, etc. It was a
little complex because the new computer opens from a hatch on the left side,
and there are four cooling fans, two of them blowing through a duct system
that had to be removed to access the motherboard. The motherboard had
alternating slots, one kind of which the board did not fit into.(guess which
one I used?) Radio shack had the 1/4" TRS/RCA cable for inputting to the
receiver. I disabled motherboard sound in the Advanced tab in BIOS, and
when I went to disable it in System, it wasn't there. I left the jumpers at
default; should I change to -10db for use with my receiver? Next big hurdle
will be to send some analog signal into the card, and see what happens.
Thanks for your suggestion and help. Am sitting here listening to Gayla
Peevey sing my favorite Christmas carol.
