    Angry Sound on Snow Leopard!

    First, a little background. I managed to get Leopard 10.5.6 working on my PC and had been using it for the past few months. Everything except the DVD drive and the Sleep option was working perfectly.

    Now, I finally decided to try installing Snow Leopard. Purchased a new WD Caviar Black hard drive, partitioned it appropriately, and installed Snow Leopard 10.6.0 Retail from within Leopard onto the new HDD. (followed this guide)

    After completing the installation, I tried to boot into it, but my keyboard wasn't detected. Got back on Leopard, installed a PS2 driver on the SL partition and rebooted. And SL now detected the keyboard just fine. But then, Leopard wouldn't detect my keyboard anymore (so I couldn't even get past the login screen). So I tried to fix it from within SL, but somewhere something got messed up and Leopard won't boot anymore (kernel panic each time).

    I thought it shouldn't matter much since I have SL running now anyway. Got everything (even the DVD Drive which wasn't detected in Leopard) to work on my SL except Audio. Since the onboard audio on my Intel DG33FB mobo stopped working for some reason a few months ago, I had purchased the cheapest PCI sound card I could find - some Genius Soundmaker 5.1 card. It worked fine with Leopard but I just can't get SL to detect it. Tried installing tons of audio drivers - every single one I could find. No luck. And I don't even have Leopard working anymore - so I'm sitting here with no audio for the past 2 days.

    I guess I have no other choice but to buy a new compatible sound card. Can you guys suggest a cheap one? (PCI or USB, either is fine... cheaper is better). Or if you can give me some tips on how to get the sound working on my current card, that'd be great too!

    Arrow Sound issues.

    I encounter a similar issue when I installed Snow Leopard OS the first time and because I didn't have the knowledge of how to fix it, I almost bought a new Sound card. Try to install "VoodooHDA-0.2.2" using kexthelper and that file comes with "VoodooHDA prefpane" install it manually into Library/preferencepanes folder after that "repair Permission" before rebooting.
    Also check if your system is 32 bit or 64 bit, since some Sound Cards require a kext based on it.

    I don't know if you already tried it but is worth to mention it. In my Blog you can find the link for the sound driver.
