View Full Version : [ubuntu] The NVIDIA Driver is blocking out my sound

March 22nd, 2009, 08:28 PM
I recently built a computer 4 months ago a pretty good computer cost me over 2 grand to make.
ASUS Maximus II Formula motherboard
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 processor
Antec Twelve Hundred Mid Tower Gamer Case
XFX GeForce 9800GTX graphics card
OCZ Reaper Hpc Edition PC2-8500 DDR2 4GB Memory
and with my motherboard i got a Supreme FX sound card

anyway i have everything put together properly everything is working fine except when i go to install my nvidia drivers. When my drivers are not installed my sound works i can listen to music and everything. But when I install the nvidia drivers my sound is gone. I even tried another sound card. Now I would really hate the solution to be to buy another video card as this one was expensive.

I should mention that I am hooked up to an HD tv for my monitor. But I am not hooked to HD sound I am thinking that that could be my problem my video card could want HD sound. But I would like to hear some opinions.
