    Okay, before I get started, one of the bigger problems is that it's a Gateway.

    Now, since that's out of the way, here's the real problem:

    Soundcard doesn't work. He's replaced the soundcard, and an error he receives is that the pins aren't connected or something. I don't have the error right in front of me (I live away from home and haven't actually seen the error), but he said the problem definitely doesn't lie in the soundcard. I recently reformatted and put Win XP Pro w/SP2 on, so I don't think it's the OS screwing up.

    Anybody ever have that kind of error? What can be done? Is the mobo junk? He's had the computer for like 4 years now, and this problem's cropped up within the last couple months.

    Thanks for your help, all.

    I don't think most of us can help you because we still really don't know what the problem is, somethin about the pins isn't too descriptive enough :sad2: See if you can find out the exact error and then I can try and help :bigthumb:
