OK I followed that link and hit open when i got a prompt. The web page stayed blank with the windows icon in the top right "waving". It stayed like that for about 5 minutes then the page just dissapeared and i got a beep from the tower.

I already did, its been 2 days since i opened a topic, no replies, only views, seeing that this topic revolves around a similar topic i posted here.

Srry


I read that post, it doesnt work. :'(

Well, its best if I just completly start over, reset to factory settings always works!


did you try bumping your post periodically to keep it at the top of the list? Say, once every few hours or so? The important thing to remember is that we are all volunteers, and sometimes life intervenes. :whistling:

in the device manager, uninstall the multimedia autocontroller. then click, I think, action, and have it scan for hardware changes. This will force it to reinstall with it's drivers, and it's sort of a last ditch effort. But let me know..


Calling it quits tonight, see you tomorrow. Hopefully with sound.

Unfortunately it didn't work.
The hardware update wizard says :

Cannot Install This Hardware

The hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary software

Click BACK if you have installation media such as a CD-ROM, or if you know the location of the software.

I don't have any disks for my pc as we got the computer built by a friend and he didn't supply any.
I'll wait to see what your response is tomorrow but maybe I should chase him up for the disks. Thanks for all your help though.

Enter device manager and uninstall every item that you can in "sound video and game comtrollers". Right click the item and see if you have the uninstall option in the menu.

Download and install the audio driver from this link:

http://www.abit-usa....duct_name=LG-80

Make sure that your speakers are plugged in the right place and are switched on.

In other words, redo post 14.

OK, I downloaded the audio driver from the link and now I've got a zipped folder on my desktop called r125 but I don't have any sound yet. I've tried to play muaic via Windows Media Player, Real player and Sonic Stage and none of them work and say there is a problem with the driver.

Do I have to do something with the zipped folder to activate it?

Unzip the file to a convenient place, into one folder.

Thats all the knowledge i know of.
