Please Help me get started. Reformated.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello there.
This is the final time i'm going to muck around with my computers drivers, because i'm getting so annoyed.
I've reformatted my computer like, 4 times in 2 days now.
It's mainly surrounding my sound. but if you guys can help with other things, it will be great. I have Onboard sound.

My motherboard is ASUS P4S800-MX
My Chipset is a SiS 661FX
I have an Intel Celeron 2.67 ghz
Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 2.
I went into my Bios, and it said 'Realtek AC97 [Auto]'. It could either be 'Disabled, or Auto'.
I remember a while ago i had an audio program called 'SoundMax', but i got that from my Asus motherboard disc. But i don't have that anymore, and last time i reformated, the SoundMax drivers didn't work, And the Realtek AC97 drivers kept restarting my computer each time i would try and install.
In 'Device Manager' My sound driver has a yellow question mark over it, and it seemed nothing would work for me last time.
Could someone please, if possible do a step by step instruction on what drivers i install first etc, if you do, you will seriously be my hero. no joke.

My Graphics card says it's a 'RADEON 9200 Pro Family'

I rememeber i tried to download and install this driver.
http://www.majorgeeks.com/Realtek_AC...ers_d4400.html
for my audio, but each time i tried to, it would get to the end, and just restart my computer. I even tried in safe mode, no luck.
I tried to install PCI SiS Audio drivers, but it just gave me an error message. Now, i have just done a fresh install of Xp Home Edition, NO drivers installed.
Edit: I remember trying to install the Asus Audio drivers from the site, they were called Soundmax, but when i clicked the 'install.exe' nothing opened or anything and under the name 'install.exe' in faint grey, it said 'Installer for windows 2000' but i'm SURE i downloaded the driver for Windows XP.

Thank you so much.
Yeaaahhh!

Try looking up your motherboard under "downloads" at the ASUS site to locate the proper drivers instead of finding 3rd party sites and guessing as to which you should be using...

Get a Creative Live! 24-bit or an Audigy SE. They're $30 sound cards and they're a million times better than onboard. The jump from onboard to anything else is huge, but the jump from say an Audigy SE to an X-Fi isn't as big. Trust me, it's worth it.

I was thinking of buying one...
But before my sound was fine, it was really loud and clear.
I'm just annoyed that no drivers are working.
Yeaaahhh!

You can try www.drivershq.com.They look for the drivers for you.The down side to it,you must be a member.Sometimes it's better to just buy a new souncard then mess with drivers.
