Alot of the boards come with it allrady one a disk there should be two or threee different drivers that will get your system going, you can install one of them or all of them i personally install all of them but you might not get the option with that board.

Describe your system and dexcribe the problem a little more what steps are you taking and what kind of input are you getting back, do you have everything connected to the board properly and you have to follow your manual and read it at least twice before you do anything, the whole manual including the trouble shooting section.
