Driver Issues...help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well i finished installing XP Pro SP3 hours ago on this build given to me by a cousin of mine.

Im having a lot of trouble getting these dang drivers working. The motherboard is a Asus P4XP-X and the processor is a Celeron 1.7ghz. When i went to the mobo site and downloaded the drivers they didnt work. Theyre soundmax drivers or something and eventually the error that comes up is NO ADI CODEC or something. I even tried putting my old sound blaster live in and when installed those drivers, which didnt work either.

I also put in a fx5200 that has worked for really long now, and i installd the drivers (both from cd and online) and at the end of the setup each time it says something along the lines of "This computer has not been modified, please restart and run this setup again".

I have no idea what to do, and lots of people i read are having the same soundmax problem but no solutions. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers to no success.

Any help appreciated, I cant take the horrible "scrolling effect" and no sound for much longer. Plus, it would be nice for my dad to have a computer at home to surf the internet on so he doesn't have to keep asking me to get off mine :S.

thanks

download everest, make sure you're downloading the driver for the exact model of each hardware component.. i wouldn't download soundcard drivers (even if onboard) from the motherboard manufacturer's website. if all else fails, have you tried to update the hardware with generic windows drivers?
