I've got a strange problem with my new motherboard:
Jeyway Board based with Via 8223 Sound
Athlon 900 Mhz
133 SD Ram
Windows 95 (yeah, alright it works fine with me)
I fitted the board without reinstalling Windows (I know people moan about this, but this is the first time I've bumped into a problem).
The old board was a VIA VP3 chipset with K62 - 550 and a cheapo soundcard (a something 4421 chipset).
Every since I've swapped the board, removed the old soundcard and installed the crappy VIA drivers, I've had a sound delay when playing movies. Games are fine.
Its like watching a badly dubbed movie where the lips move and the speech comes about a second later.
Any ideas on fixing this (and the first person to say 'Reinstall you lazy ba$+ard' gets a kicking).
I am considering moving the system up to Win 98SE like the rest on the network (mainly for the forthcoming Warcaft 3 - which doesn't support 95), but need a quick fix to cover me for a while. My system takes ages to 'tweak' the way I like it - so a reinstall 'aint a quick fix, by the way.

Have you checked the device manager? Remove old drivers? Sometimes don't show up unless in Safe Mode.
Why not put your PC's idle time to good use by downloading the seti@home client HERE and then joining the Sysopt.com Users 2002 Team HERE
have you got the latest Via drivers?
Please do install WIN98SE!
I'm running 98SE from the beginning and I know a lot of people who are running XP and they have to install patches and run into alot of compatibility problems.
Just run WIN98SE, it can be stable as a rock and offer maximum compatibility if you know what you're doing.
(though I'm convinced that XP can be stable as a rock to I'm still waiting for XPSE)
I've found the problem relates to DivX 2 Alpha, somehow its screwed up my emulators & most media players (not PowerDVD strangley enough).
Sorry I didn't respond earlier, my auto link for this question aint working.
I now have my sweeeet copy of warcraft 3 (which, by the way aint as good as Starcraft) so the machine is heading for Win98SE reinstall.
