Can you please clarify what you need me to do Ed? What is the end result?? Is it an easy fix or is it just better to buy another motherboard that as the right sound hardware?

So to fix the sound problem you suggest to replace the motherboard that you already told me to buy earlier in this thread with a D865GBF board as per the manual you posted now.  Is that right?

unless you can manage to somehow configure the linux installtaion to use the different? (if it's different) sound chip on board.

have you tried the audio output from the HDMI port on the videocard?

I will try to run the sound directly off the motherboard and see what happens. As it is runninh from the little power board left of pc to the io board and then out the jamma harness to the speakers. May this make a difference?
As the Video card im running doesnt have a hdmi sound output only 2 dvi plugs. Its a nvidia gt6600 card.

yeah, the flat cable that plugs onto the motherboard basically taps the front panel header connection for use out the back RCA's... switching to the headphone on the rear won't help. it's more or less the exact same output.

the 6600GT is a really old card. i'm surprised it still works.

they switched from the 6600 to a 7600...then a 9500 the 9500GT was the first card they used that had HDMI (used SPDIF from the mobo for HDMI audio)

the GT430 card after that was the first card used in the Golden tee's that have a separate audio encoder device for the HDMI.

from what i read and know
i posted on  it >the sound chip dose indeed vary<
now i do not work for its but lord knows when we did up-dates like that >hardware< we would include as a matter of course older
audio chips,if the mfg of the board did a up-date mid stream,then there is no way without sending out a tsb and patch file we could offer support.
shawn hit on a good point
worth a try
dead board to running is not to bad

Thx Shawn for the insight mate. Unfortunately this game is running on a old style Jamma golden tee cab with medium resolutiin old school moniter thats the reason for the old school video card i guess. I need to get this cab running sound. So is the better or cheaper option buying a new motherboard as ed suggested for the second time? And if so can you confirm that the one ed suggested D865GBF is the biard to buy? Or is there a better one? Or is the better option to buy new video card? If so please confirm exact one that will donthe job? Either way just want to buy and get this sucker working! Ha ha
Also have this board on its way will this do the job correctly??

what we need to keep in mind
is its-gamming did a few different things.
and a company in usa found a way to mix and match it worse >bmgamming< for 1
will sell u a converison kit
blackhawk - mix and match parts (gen1-2)
so it was like a bag of nuts@bolts different grab a whole new hand full

So what i understand from all this discussion is that a realtek sound board codec is the one we need to get the sound to run as the other board i bought although it being a lga775 chipset which will run the game the sound chip was a sigmatel or something which it doesnt like and hense no sound. So saying all this looking to buy this  motherboard will it work?

okay, so the computer I currently have by my desk here is a GT live 2013 so it's board might be newer than what was available during the 2010 time... thus, may not have built in driver support in 2010 for the newer board.

I will post the model # for posterity's sake.

This GT2013 computer has an Intel DB65AL motherboard with 1 GB factory supplied ram.

so I can absolutely confirm that model board will work with GT versions 2013/14/15/16 and so on into perpetuity. I cannot confirm any backwards compatibility from 2013 as I'm not sure when driver support was added.


as for your suggested board...

I know of a D915GUX board, i'm unsure of the year it was introduced. it is a confirmed GT model number though.

i'm, not sure what the difference between the D915GRV and the D915GUX boards are, but it could be quite significant... it could be inconsequential. it could be as trivial 4 vs 2 sata ports....it could be a totally different northbridge chipset to different CPU compatibility... this is the reason intel boards are kind of a bugger to source...they have literally endless variations of the same board. for our setup here, you pretty much have to source an exact replacement model number.

I'll keep digging up model information and post it here as I get it.

It seems to be a bit of a hit and miss mate as the board that isnt working at the moment is an intel board D975XBX2 with the same sigmatel audio chipset 9227 but why no sound with GT 2010 live???? Will try the board posted above with realtek audio chip and report back how i go.

I have 3 of those D915GUX boards and not one of them work. Thats what started this thread. All power on and fans spin but nothing apears on screen or loads. Maybe i shoild look to someone fixing these motherboards. Where or who would i look to repairing these??

I've seen one a few weeks ago that specifically does golden tee nighthawk boards.  If I recall it was 30 bucks for the estimate and bout 100 to fix.  Comes with some kind of warranty.
 
All in,  I think a guy could buy a used board for about the same price.  So either way at that point.   
 
When I'm not on my phone and back at the  computer,  I'll dig through my history and see if I can find it.

Hey lilshawn, just wondering if motherboard failure is common with these units? I'm wondering if maybe I should pick one up as a spare while they are available?

it's pretty common.

basically if you see blown caps and it still works, replace them. it'll probably be okay.

if it's dead and you open it up and the caps are blown...your chances of resurrecting it are 50/50...and then it's likely not going to be reliable. (random crashes...reboots etc.)

basically if you can get to it BEFORE its a problem, your golden.

So the old GT LIVE dedicated cab with 2 screens is what i have. I was told by Scott at IT that it is no longer supported and the offline versions i have 2016 and 2013 GT Live no longer support this cab so my 2nd screen is upside down. The dip switch that flips the screen is also no longer supported on the offline version. So to cut a long story short had to manually flip the 2nd screen which was a big pain in the butt. Urghhh!!

such is the arcade operator life.  :dunno

companies abandon their hardware and we are left holding the bag.

manually flipping the screen is a huge PITA but you got it  :cheers: at least the screen still works instead of just displaying garbage, clone of the main screen, or worse yet...nothing anymore.
