Ive tried it and under Integrated Peripherals I changed the last option (that has something to do with audio - the only one i saw in the whole menu) to PCI. Does this mean that my sound card is still functioning?

Thanks and sorry for my lack of understanding of computers :whistling:



Sorry for the delay in replying, I had the weekend away from the comp.
I take it that you are using the onboard sound & not a sound card inserted into one of your pci slots.
If you are, the setting you changed should be set to 'auto', or 'onboard'


You could try a different driver from here: http://www.softwarep...dio_Driver.html

Thanks for the reply again Armic.

I think I have an inbuilt soundcard because when I opened my computer up, I could only see my RAM that was removable from the computer. There was no other card visible that I could see so i assume that my sound card is integrated.

So where can I change what to auto or onboard?

Thanks again

Hi, change the setting back in the bios where you changed the option to pci, to auto or onboard.

Your problem will be the drivers, try the driver on the link which I posted earlier today and see if that works,
if not we'll have to find a different one.

Where/how did you find out the name model of your motherboard?

I'll look for an older version of the drivers for you to try.

I've a feeling Everest may have got it wrong, could you open your case & look for the name of your mobo, to see if it matches, if not or if you cant find any id, note the model (eg.via) and any numbers displayed on any of the chips soldered onto the mobo. (dont bother with any chips smaller than about 1cm).

BTW. Have you tried using Add/Remove hardware located in the control panel?

No joy with any older drivers. Try the above & post the results back here.
