Hi, hoping someone can help me fix the choppy distorted sound coming from played dvd's and cd's. Sounds just fine from file music. It seems to have something to do with the background music and noise, is pretty good with just the voices. This has happened before and I did a System Restore and it fixed it. This time in System Restore there are not any days before today that I can choose from. Not sure why about that, but at any rate, any helpful ideas?
Ok, I am going through the process, but have a question. Under the Device Manager tab, I expanded the 'IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. The instructions then tell me to select the "appropriate" IDE channel, Primary or Secondary. I have two Primary's and one Secondary to choose from. How do I know which one is the "appropriate" one?
I've gone into all three of them; under one of the Primary's in the Device 0 box it has 'DMA if available' selected and says Current Transfer Mode 'Ultra DMA Mode 5'. In its Device 1 box it has DMA if available showing, but says 'not applicable' for the Current Transfer Mode. The other Primary in Device 0 has DMA if available showing, but says PIO Mode. In its Device 1 box it has DMA if available selected, but says Not Applicable for Current Transfer Mode. The Secondary, in Device 0 and Device 1 boxes, has DMA if available, but says Not Applicable in both boxes. Any thoughts?
