Onboard Sound Problems, Please Help

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi there..

Before, on my computer, I had spent a good 5 days looking for the correct Audio Drivers for my computer (onboard)

I finally found the correct one, it was a SoundMax Integrated Audio Driver..
Now, this was working FINE, unitll i put my new monitor on, and because my monitor also had sound, it made my speakers sound all fuzzy, I only realised this after what i did next -->

I Downloaded a SoundMax Audio driver thinking it will reinstall it, It gave me the option to reinstall, so i did..

Now, all seems well, but when i boot up my computer, it comes up with the icon like this.



Is there a program i can install that tells me what my previous drivers were etc, and/or can someone help me find the correct driver again.

My motherboard is Asus PS4800-MX,and i have onboard sound.

The sound file i downloaded last time i remember was about 24 megs.

I've tried the ASUS motherboard sound drivers but they don't work..
Yeaaahhh!

Try uninstalling the old drivers with Driver Cleaner first then reinstall.

Try to refrain from using cusswords in your Title. You usually wont get too much help that way.

Now, for the drivers. Have you tried uninstalling all audio drivers and reinstalling the Soundmax drivers from here: http://support.asus.com/download/dow...Language=en-us

I am assuming that your mobo is a P4S800-MX and not a PS4800-MX.

If that doesnt work, post back and we can try something else.

You can uninstall them using driver cleaner and also Add & Remove through Control Panel.

Don't listen to Tankman about the cusswords. If you're stressed out we understand how you feel......just don't swear!

No, but i remember trying these drivers about 10 different times last time i had this porblem.

Edit : My computer keeps trying to detect the Realtek Drivers, but each time i tried to install them, it would just restart my computer and not work..

I remember last time, i got a SoundMax audio driver that wasn't even for my model, and it worked

Edit again - Got the right Driver, and this time, I'm backing it up for future

Thanks anyway guys
