Have you thought about getting it from Asus themselves?
Go HERE and click on the appropriate entries in each of the drop down menus and the driver should be there.
Motherboard is what you want in the first menu
Socket 478 is the second menu
P4S800 is the third drop down menu.
Then select your OS which I take it is XP in the new window that comes up and click Select
Then the download page will come up where you click on the audio entry and 3 drivers will show up then.
The first one is dated 2003/10/01 update and this is the newest for your motherboard. Choose your download link and if asked save it to your desktop. when downloaded then you should be able to install it.
Let me know if it works for you correctly.

I tried everything that you posted to do.
Downloaded and extracted zip file. When I
clicked on to run the program nothing happened.
The question I have is, when I boot into 98SE, I
have sound, in fact, I was just listening to a CD
today. If I have sound in my 98SE partition with
no problem, why do I have problems with my WINXP
partition? Don't both use the same audio on the
motherboard? Could I have downloaded a program
and then uninstalled, cause a problem? Currently
a dual boot with 98SE and WinXP. My computer is a
desktop. When I went to the ASUS site I chose
Motherboard, Socket 478, P4S800. For some reason
the downloaded file will not install. Any help
would greatly be appreciated. Toutez

Windows 98 and Windows XP are two different animals. You'll therefore need two different drivers. One designed for Windows 98 (installed while running 98), and another designed to work with Windows XP (installed while running XP).

Also while in your XP windows do the following.

  • (for Windows XP users)
  • Please click Start and click Run
    (for Windows Vista and 7 users)
  • Please click Start and select the white text box.
  • Type: devmgmt.msc and hit Enter
  • Look for any entries with a Yellow Exclamation Mark or Red X's



To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop


Attach it to your next reply

Is the soundcard you want to install an integrated soundcard or did you buy another card and you are not using the SoundMAX integrated audio soundcard that is suppose to be on the Asus P4S800 motherboard.

I am not trying to replace the soundcard it is the
one that was on the motherboard.
I think that I need to download Sis7012 Audio
for P4S800.
When I went to the ASUS download.
I chose Motherboard, Socket 478, P4S800.
After downloading and extracting the file,
the file will not run for some reason.
I don't know if someone has virtual space
where they can download this, and see if
the program can actually run or not.
I don't understand why the application will
not run after the download.

In Device Manger right click on the SIS Audio and then click on Update driver. When it asks for the location of the driver point it toward the file you downloaded. Does that correct the problem?
If not uninstall the driver in device manager, reboot..and when it looks for the driver point it to the one you downloaded. Does this correct the issue?

I just went to Asus http://support.asus....SLanguage=en-us and for your motherboard Asus P4S800 the indicated soundcard driver for the integrated soundcard is "SoundMAX Audio Driver version 5.12.01.3620 WHQL driver for Windows 98SE,ME,2000,XP".
