Hi Starfleet,
Looks like you have two sound devices! The Intel onboard & the Ensoniq add on card. Am I correct?

Starfleet,
card 0 = Ensoniq
card 1 = Intel HDA

pnp = Speakers are detected!

Sooo, look on the back of your box, there is probably 2 places for plugging in your speakers, one will be by the network plug (onboard), the other will be in a card slot. Which one is your speakers plugged into?

I'm confused, isn't there two sets of plugins on the back?

Green (pink,blue)plugs are standard on ALL audio, well not ALL, but most. :lol:

I think there is another set, must be for a plug in sound card. I'll try it tomorrow it's getting late and I need to get up early.
Hopefully I'll talk to you then.

Hey Rich, you are right there are 2. I tried the card slot and it works for Mint but not for Windows and the network one (onboard) works for Windows but not Mint..isn't that funny. It looks like depending on which OS I use will determine which one i plug into for sound, a minor hassle. Thank you for all your help and the other guys too.

Starfleet,
Great news . . :D . . Now if you remember how to get into your Setup (BIOS) at the beginning of the boot process, you can go into the advanced settings again, and look for "onboard Intel HD audio" or some such, once you find it, you can highlight it with the arrows, then hit 'Enter' to be able to choose to "disable" it. Save and reboot.
The result, you should have BOTH operating systems using the Ensoniq add-on card. If it doesn't work for some reason, you can always change it back, no harm! :D

You don't have to do this, but I think, if I were you, I wouldn't want to change my audio plug every time I switched. :wink:

Well, I'm glad that you stuck with it, and now can start enjoying your new Minty OS !

regards, Richard

Here is a brief description of how I have always set up a dual boot.
First prepare partitions. With a partition tool such as GPartEd running on a live disk , reduce the size of Windows C: drive to create empty space for your Linux partitions. The amount you reduce it depends on your Windows minimum requirements. After reducing C; drive re-run Windows to let it check the file system.
Next with a partition tool such as GParEtd , create three logical partitions -- one about 6 GB or more formatted ext3 , for your Linux install. Another logical partition about 1 GB formatted swap. Then the balance of the empty space formatted ext3 for data to mount on the /home partition.
Now start the install disk and choose ' manual ' . Edit the data partition as mounted on /home . and edit the Linux install target partition as formatted and mounted on / .
Then the installation should proceed normally.

Hey Rich I deleted both Mint installs and then reinstalled Mint on the combined free space and everything went perfect. I will try what you said about the speakers this weekend and hopefully it will work, but like I said, if it doesn't work I'm sure I can deal with switching to the other port when need be. Either way I now have Linux and my wife and kids still have Windows with nothing lost, and maybe if they try it then maybe someday they might want to switch from the dark side and only use Windows if they have to. Thanks again for all your help your the best.

Scott :D

This happened to me also. I'm pretty sure that it is because I hadn't allocated any space from the xp partition. You need to click on the xp partition and then drag from the right hand side to the left.
