Recently received a 1U IPSU NetGate ALIX Single to perform some testing with pfSense on this type of platform. I was looking for a way to track the device and hoping to use DMI information so needed to first install dmidecode. Anyhow ran into a couple issues which are noted below along with resolutions for those issues.
PowerDVD DX 8.1 on Windows Vista Sound Not Working, Other Sound Including Windows Media Player Working Fine
A client of mine had me troubleshoot a problem on one if his Windows Vista laptops running PowerDVD DX 8.1 to play DVD’s from the internal DVD drive. I have used PowerDVD in the past but it has been awhile so I wasn’t exactly sure what the problem was right away. He said that one of his sons had been messing with the *function button along with the number keys at the top and the sound stopped working. I looked through each of the possibilities and nothing made sense that could have caused the sound to quit working.
