Update: I'd had the box out on the front porch last week, within reach of
my air compressor hose, and gave it a heck of a D&C. Even changed the
sickly fan on the video card for a ball bearing model, and took the fan off
the cpu so I could clean out that heat sink. When I brought it back in (it
sits under an adjacent desk and due to the video cable is rather limited in
motion to make the back panel easily visible, and the problem turned out to
be that I had the amp plugged into the very faded light blue jack instead
of the equally faded light green jack. Now I need to find a tool bar
mounted volume control. Kmix used to park itself in that box next to the
clock in the lower right corner. Now I have, on the right end of the upper
bar, 3 icons that could be kmix but none of them will admit to it. The
rocker switch for up/down on the keyboard works, so I suppose I can learn
to live with that. I guess the left & right of that triplet of speaker
icons is connected to the left & right gain levels they get smaller if I
turn it down with the keyboard rocker. Wierdsville since I'm more of a kde
type than gnome type. Well, I'll be, the mute button on the keyboard has
never worked, but it does now!
Thanks for Ric's help, he got me down on my prayer bones to triple check
how it was plugged in.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
