Onboard sound. Possibly Realtek AC97!!!

post #1 of 9
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!

First install the chipset drivers, then the rest.
You find them all here : http://support.asus.com/download/dow...Language=en-us

If you have any other drivers lying around hidden somewhere then use drivercleaner to get rid of them.

Also have you got SP2? That may help.

The installers for Windows 2000 and xp are the same, so don't worry on installing those.
They should work fine.

How would they be fine if when i double click it nothing happens, and nothing installs..

Unless i'm not meant to double click it..maybe i'm just meant to put the files somewhere?

Well , i don't know what are you supposed to do with them (maybe instructions in readme.txt?), but i'm sure that they are compatible with your OS.

Hope that works. I never had much luck with motherboard disc provided drivers, so I always hit up the realtek site when in need
