After installing watercooling, sound quits

Greetings,
Excuse my newbocity with this forum....
I recently installed a watercooling kit onto my system, and the sound died after I turned it back on.
Before anyone replies "Lock the PCI/AGP", that has been done already. Oddly enough- I noticed the sound was out before I overclocked...
Nothing has been leaking so far, no smoke- everything else on the system is working flawlessly.
I've checked and rechecked the drivers / volume / digital output mode / etc. No sound with headphones either- I suspect the hardware.
Any ideas? Thanks!

OK, a couple questions before I take out the motherboard (again)...
Let's say that the motherboard is being grounded out by the mounting I've applied to it: took out the plastic fan mount, put on a metal h-bracket to the back of the MB, with insulation between it and the MB, put 4 screws through it, plastic washer on bottom, metal nut on top
Would it not affect more than sound?
I dont have enough room in the case to lengthen the stand-offs and still have the motherboard outputs fit. Can I apply a wad of electrical tape to the back of the case (where the supposed grounding is taking place) to solve this?
The only real place that metal from the mounting is actually touching the board is where the screws are going through the old fan mounts. (not on top or bottom of MB, however) I would have thought this area on the MB would be insulated...
thanks in advance

  • Trouble after install stage - LR quits after a few seconds

    Hey, I was a suer of the beta and temporary license. I then purchased a box version, de-installed everything. When I launch LR, the screen where I can choose to purchase, use demo (option is no longer opened) vanishes after too few seconds for me to do anything useful and the application quits. Anyone having faced this ? My system is Apple PowerMac G5 Dual, OS X 10.4.9
    Thanks

    I have this same problem, and I did a clean installation.
    Hardware:
    2009 MacBoook Pro 17" 3.06 C2D; 4 GB RAM, 256 Apple SSD
    While loading the browser is quick starting up, I notice a delay to open any website, like it's preloading the entire page versus just loading.  Safari seems like it's a bit sluggish overall with loading web pages.
    Did a internet speed test and my U/D rates are the same after the upgrade.

  • Audio and video skip after installing USB Sound Blaster Audigy 2

    Hi community,?Since installing my USB Sound Blaster Audigy 2 NX, audio and video skip when being played with either windows media player, winamp, iTunes, neroshow, winDVD 7, creatives own media players etc. in fact anything I can try, won't work. Games are fine, in fact the sound is brilliant. I'd be really grateful for any feedback on this, not being able to listen to music is driving me crazy. Thanks.

    Hello thebro90,I had the same problem.After tryed everything, uninstall, reinstall audio drivers, etc, I finally manage to solved it by updating the CPU drivers... I have a AMD Atlhon X2 4800+Never had the problem again.Best regards.

  • [VIA] KT4AV seemingly dead after installing new sound card!

    Hi all,
    I recently fitted a new sound card to my system. following this my system wouldn't start - it wouldn't even get past POST (i'm getting the 4 red LEDs on the D-Bracket for "cpu incorrectly installed or damaged"). I've takenb the card out again, and no change. i've removed and reseated the CPU, and no change. I've even changed the CPU for another that i know is working fine, and (you guessed it) no change. I've also tried resetting/clearing the CMOS (nothing).
    The main thing i should stress is that my system was 100% fine before this. never locked, rebooted or crashed.
    My system is:
    KT4AV mobo
    Athlon XP 2800+ (and also a Duron 900 for testing, as above)
    2 x Crucial DDR2700 512MB sticks
    Radeon 9800 Pro (Saphire)
    Q-Tec (yes - i know!) 550W PSU
    Could the CPU socket have been damaged/burnt out or something?
    Hope someone can help, cheers
    Jon...

    the first thing i will suggest is.... try another (better) PSU. borrow one off a friend. you may find that the board powers up again

  • After installing Win7 x32 SP1 I can not start Firefox. Not even in safe mode. I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed the program. Won't start.

    After installing SP1 Firefox quit working and Internet Explore quit working. I can only use Chrome as a browser at this time.

    See:

    A possible cause is security software (firewall,anti-virus) that blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.
    Remove all rules for Firefox and the plugin-container from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.

  • Old videos lost their audio after installing iOS4

    My old videos lost their audio after installing iOS4.
    Quite frustrating. Any fix?
    (I am with iPhone 3GS).

    Do they still have audio in iTunes? Then, try using iTunes to "convert" them to iPhone-compatible format.

  • What do I do to resolve an ongoing problem with the MAIL "new messages sound".?  If I reboot the iMAC and keep the mail app open after a number of messages come in the NEW MESSAGE Sound quits. I have to reboot the machine to get it back.

    New Messages sound quits after several messages have arrived. I've tried several passes at resolving but nothing I have done seems to work. Sometimes I have to reboot the imac several times to get the New Messages Sounds back. Everything else works. The only thing I haven't done is reinstall the OS and that seems foolhardy.

    Hi Memalyn
    Essentially, the bare issue is that you have a 500GB hard drive with only 10GB free. That is not sufficient to run the system properly. The two options you have are to move/remove files to another location, or to install a larger hard drive (eg 2TB). Drive space has nothing to do with SMC firmware, and usually large media files are to blame.
    My first recommendation is this: download and run the free OmniDiskSweeper. This will identify the exact size of all your folders - you can drill down into the subfolders and figure out where your largest culprits are. For example, you might find that your Pictures folder contains both an iPhoto Library and copies that you've brought in from a camera but are outside the iPhoto Library structure. Or perhaps you have a lot of purchased video content in iTunes.
    If you find files that you KNOW you do not need, you can delete them. Don't delete them just because you have a backup, since if the backup fails, you will lose all your copies.
    Don't worry about "cleaners" for now - they don't save much space and can actually cause problems. Deal with the large file situation first and see how you get on.
    Let us know what you find out, and if you manage to get your space back.
    Matt

  • Is anyone else having issues with their sound after installing 10.9?

    After installing Mavericks, if my computer goes to sleep, my sound stops working when it wakes up.  Is anyone else having this issue?  Is there a solution, is it an OS bug or is it something I can fix? 

    There are quite a number of people reporting this and there doesn't seem to be a permanent fix (other than rebooting and not letting your computer go back to sleep ) I'm sure it is on Apple's list of things to fix...and I know that's not of much immediate help.

  • Can't quit Logic 8.02, after installing OS 10.6.1

    When I go to quit Logic, the window disappears, but in the dock it still shows as open. I have to force quit every time I wanna shut down. Anybody heard of this problem?

    Nothing on Logic not quitting, yet, but I am having problems with Kore as well. Sounds keep changing randomly, sometimes during playback, sometimes when I hit the keyboard. Mind you, it happens with untouched presets. I had to finish a mix on deadline, and ended up having to get rid of a bunch of key sounds, just to be able to print. This problem started with SL, before, Kore worked fine. Also send an email to NI, but haven't heard back. I thought about reloading Kore, and then saw that they only offer it for 10.4 and 10.5. It's a bummer. Not to mention the iTunes problems after installing 10.6 as well. Can't find half my songs, and I have to go through locating them one by one..pfff, technology. I was gonna upgrade to Logic 9. Is that going to mean more problems? I just don't have the time to work around all this!

  • TS3147 After installing Mountain Lion, I tried to scan from my Canon MX870 and received the message: "MP Navigator EX quit unexpectedly. Click Reopen to open the application again. A report will be sent to Apple,"

    After installing Mountain Lion, I tried to scan from my Canon MX870 and received the message: "MP Navigator EX quit unexpectedly. Click Reopen to open the application again. A report will be sent to Apple,"  This problem happened right after I installed Mountain Lion. I then downloaded Canon's upgraded software and drivers for the MX 870 and the problem was resolved. Now one month later, the problem has returned.

    Solved problem with original Canon software.  When I downloaded Canon software upgraded for OS X 10.8, I got all by Navigator Ex. Noticed that on Canon's site, the upgraded version is 3.1; my app was 2.1. Upgraded to 3.1 for Nav. Ex, and it works.
    You should still use Image Capture IMHO.  If it was my gear, that's what I would do.  No need to worry about software upgrades.

  • My sound system does not work AFTER installing pc to tv wireless connection

    my sound system does not work after installing hp pc to tv wireles device when I am using lap top for other purposes.

    Hi,
    You don’t install VS2010 on the client PC, then where did the Form Invoice not work? When you run it from another version of VS? Or when you run the application with application.exe?
    Based on your description, one form works well, another form does not. I assume that two forms are in two different projects, then please check the .Net Framework used by the two projects. If they are different, you can use the
    one used by the Form contact for Form Invoice.
    Because this issue is a project issue, I recommend you to consult it on some application forum such as Windows Forms General forum for better support.
    VS General Question forum mainly discusses
    the usage of Visual Studio IDE such as
    WPF & SL designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help
    System and Visual Studio Editor.

But now after installing Windows 7, many things in windows doesn't work (sound etc.). I made a clean installation because I needed to go from 32 bit to 64 bit.
