I recently replaced my motherboard and am having problems with the onboard audio. The ASUS website identified my motherboard as an M2N-SLI, so I downloaded the audio drivers for that model and, upon installation, received this error message: "Please plug in "C-Media 6501 Sound" and install driver again."
I thought I might try the device manager to see if something there was causing a problem. "Other devices" contained a couple thing that looked like they might be related to my problem, so I tried to install drivers for them, but the hardware update wizard couldn't find drivers etc for "Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus", "SM Bus Controller" or "Unknown Device."
This has me absolutely stumped. I only know enough about computers to know that Something Is Terribly Wrong, and I can't figure out what. Please help!
