hey guys, i got a new motherboard for a computer i made for christmas, For some reason the driver disk that came with the system is not working as in it wont make the sound work.

I downloaded the latest driver but i get an error message saying "Cannot find drivers for this device : BDE Slip de-framer".

Im running windows XP pro, the sound card is installed and its a amd 64 bit 939 processor with 1 gb of ram.

thanks
dave

thats the only problem with those motherboards, They are really great boards
I would probably not use the soundcard that it came with and buy my own creative if I bought that board.

Not really the motherboards fault its the sound card. You should be able to get it to work though.

About every motherboard has a small issue of some sort.

Its not a sound card at all as far as i know the soundcard is on the motherboard they just didnt have room for the audio inputs and outputs on the back panel so they stuck it on a board. Its good in that you dont have ports that you dont use on the back when you get a sound card, but you need a sound card in the first place.

It is really a card. It has the connectors that goes into a small slot.

I know its really weird though and I didnt want to get technical. Its for the ports for sound.
(Still is a sound card issue technically lol)

I dont use any onboard sound for any motherboard, I always buy a creative sound card. Just saying if you bought a creative sound card comanighttrain, you wouldnt have ran into any trouble.



I said the above because I didnt want him to think that the board was a pos. I was the one that helped him pick out that board if im not mistaken, and I didnt want him to feel unhappy with it just because of the small little issue.

I dont usually bother with a souncard unless they are good value for money, i cant tell the difference but im useless with sounds, you should have seen me trying to learn to play the pipes completely tone death and cant play a thing without sheetmusic, so i can never tell the difference between a good sound card and the onboard.

Its a weird deal on those boards, they only have it because the dual OTES(think thats the name) take up so much room.
