Hello All,

Been reading all kinds of posts on debugging sound issues and nothing like I'm seeing is showing up.

Sound is "normally' working great, but on some boot ups it will play a much different startup sound during diag, then the machine will play loudly and we're only getting partial sounds. I've reseated the ribbon connector, didn't seem to do anything

I appreciate any ideas on steps to troubleshoot the issue.

Kind Regards,
Mike

I'd reseat ribbon cable from CPU to soundboard. And on soundboard be sure all socketed chips have clean legs and are pushed in tight.

Thanks for the information, I have reseated the ribbon cable at all points a few times. I'll lift up the chips a bit and push them back in to see if that helps. The machine was in a non-climate controlled storage unit for about 8 years in Washington state.
