Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe (nVidia 570) -- sound problem

Postby Alan Beagley » Tue Sep 25, 2007 19:36

After a series of experiments with the Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe (nVidia 570) in a separate machine, I decided to relegate my A8N-E to use with WinXP and transplant the M2N into my eCS machine. All it took to get it working was changing the NIC driver.

I do have a sound problem, however: the first indication was that when I dragged any object, the accompanying sound was "strangled" -- just a burst of sound, then silence, but if I dragged something (the same object or a different one) a few seconds later it usually sounded normal. And now I have found that it's not just a problem when dragging objects: many of the Desktop Sounds are "strangled" when I click Play.

This is with eCS 2.0RC1 and ACPI 2.22. I haven't yet found an ACPI 3.0x version that works well with either motherboard.

PSD=ACPI.PSD /SMP /APIC

I am using the USBMOUSE.SYS driver from the AMouse package (which I used on the A8N-E as well).

The Asus U160 SCSI card is using IRQ11; I don't think there is any way of changing that. I have "reserved" IRQs 5 and 7 in the motherboard BIOS; IRQ3 does not show in the BIOS setup screens at all.

==== Veit's PCI Sniffer program displays the following at the end: ============

ROM PCI IRQ routing table Tests....
ROM IRQ routing table found at F000h:DB90h
Table Version 1.0 - OK
Table size 288 bytes - OK
Table Checksum F9h - OK
PCI Interrupt Router: Unknown
IRQ's dedicated to PCI : 10,11
Error: table entries 6 and 7 refer to the same Bus=255/Device=0!
Error: table entries 6 and 8 refer to the same Bus=255/Device=0!
Error: table entries 6 and 9 refer to the same Bus=255/Device=0!

Error: table entries 7 and 9 refer to the same Bus=255/Device=0!
Error: table entries 8 and 9 refer to the same Bus=255/Device=0!
The ROM PCI IRQ routing table appears to be faulty!!

IRQ Summary: IRQs 10,11,14,15 are used by PCI devices
Shared IRQs: IRQ 10 is shared by 5 PCI Devices
IRQ 11 is shared by 3 PCI Devices

=============================================================

I had tried RC2 with the M2N-SLI and found that the machine would boot to the desktop but lock solid whenever I tried dragging an object.

btw,
Do you have HDAudio on this motherboard?
If yes then disable it. It causes hangs

Yes, this has HDAudio. Is support for that being worked on?
