Yup, most mobos have them. I just finished a watercooled rig and was OCing it when the bios stored unstable settings, would power on then immediately shutdown. Had to use that jumper for the first time in years.LOL. I know they exist, funny when I still see them, but I can't remember the last time I actually needed to use one.
If there was a distinct smell right when it happened, I believe another poster a short while ago had the same problem and it was an audio amp meltdown and it needed to be replaced.This just happened to me yesterday. The loss of volume was preceded by a crackling noise coming from the speakers and a distinct smell of ozone. We lost volume to anything that makes sound: radio, turn signals, and all other bells and ringing sounds that the car usually makes. We've had the car since June 3rd and this is the first real issue we've experienced.
Thank you, pattyweb. I was afraid of something like that. We took it to our dealership yesterday and still have not heard anything.If there was a distinct smell right when it happened, I believe another poster a short while ago had the same problem and it was an audio amp meltdown and it needed to be replaced.
Brandeeno, in reference to your first question, the ozone smell I'm referring to is the one commonly associated with the formation of ozone (O3) from oxygen (O2) by electrical charges. The resulting smell is sometimes compared to that of the smell of chlorine but with a slightly more metallic note. You could also say it smells similar to what you would find in a room full of photocopiers. This smell is not to be confused with the ozone smell that some people notice after it rains. That smell is also as a result of ozone production, however it is more earthy or musky in odor due to the presence of bacteria called Actinomycetes.what does ozone smell like?... and how do you know?
I remember using jumper then dip switches to set the multiplier on the cpu and bus speed, squeeze every Mhz out of it without locking up on the post.Yup, most mobos have them.

That sucks. But at least you know what it is. Also, on the bright side, since it was a factory stereo system it's covered under warranty. If you'd installed an aftermarket upgraded system, you'd be paying for labor at a minimum even if the parts were still under warranty.Got a call from the dealer today. They spoke to Volvo corporate and said the "no volume" issue is a known defect and as someone here said has to do with a blown amplifier. They told me not to bring the car in Monday because they ordered a "new stereo system" and will call me when they have it.
I hope this doesn't become more widespread.
