(I don’t know what markdown is, so I cannot intentionally use it.)
I installed FXSound 6 months ago. It was OK for a while, providing a very simple ~+4dB amplifier so that I could hear quieter things.
Then FXSound started cutting out - as in I would just have no sound, no apparent reason for the lack thereof) and I would have to wait for my machine to ‘find’ the correct audio driver (at a guess), and it would come back online and I’d have sound again, hopefully.
This happened a few too many times, thus the program was completely unreliable, and for that reason only, it had to be removed.
Once I uninstalled FXSound, I realised how bad the situation actually was. My old drivers are there, but now not working at all. I have no sound, and nothing I have seen suggested online fixes it.
I have never encountered a stereo-bus audio program which allows the user to be completely without sound once the thing is removed.
Again, this PC was purchased promarily for Audio. Even if it were just a home PC for fun and for the family, it still has no audio. I am extremely upset about this. This computer is valuable to me, it is my workstation, etc. I am sorry if I sound at my wits end, but that is where I am.
I need this problem fixed ASAP. I will provide whatever details are needed. I really need help from the FXSound people. I’m sure you guys mean well, but bricking a PCs audio capabilities is bad. Please help ASAP.
Edit: Have been able to get sound back, through FXSound. This is not what I want, however: I want my regular sound back. I want my regular, reliable machine, with no FXSound on it at all.
Again, I am sorry if I sound cranky, but this is important to me, and… well, please help, as I aid before.
Thank you in advance.
