Question about Abit IS7 Motherboard

2 Answers

Won't recognize onboard sound on IS7 - chipset is Intel 865PE

I'm lost. I got this computer without OS or working hard drive. I installed a couple old hard drives and now running XP home - but sound is not recognized. I have been to ABIT's site to try to download new drivers and book for motherboard, but their ftp site not working. Been trying for about 5 hours straight to figure a way to get sound working but I spent most of that time discovering I have no clue what I am doing and I need to keep my day job. (I have also thought about flashing bios, but 1) I'm scared I'll screw it up and 2) same problem with ftp site.)

    I looked at a review for the mother board and found that it used the ARC '97 (I hope I remembered that right.) architecture for sound. I went out and found the Realteck ARC '97codec, downloaded and installed it. Now I have sound.

Yeah i would say just keep trying to find a driver for it thats the problem is that it isnt installed..you could look under device manager and see if it even recognizes it right click my computer go to properties then to hardware and device manager under sound cards or whatever maybe u can get a more specific model number of the sound card good luck

Specs on this cpu process


MicroStar International (Inc) Support > 865PE Neo2-P Platinum Edition (MSI MS-6728) Main Support page,

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/865PE-Neo2-P-Platinum-Edition.html

Click on Specification
(Overview / Specification / Download / Support / etc)

CPU (Processor) Support;

1) Intel Pentium 4 processors that have;

A) Use a Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

B) Northwood Core, or Prescott Core

C) Front Side Bus (FSB) of 400MegaHertz (400MHz) for Intel Pentium 4 processors that are based on the Northwood Core.

D) FSB support of either 533MHz, or 800MHz, for Intel Pentium 4 processors based on the Prescott Core.

Processors that have an 800MHz FSB can be used, that have UP TO a 3.6GHz frequency rate. ('Speed')
Indication that higher 'speeds' can be supported. (Overclocking?)

Now let's look at Intel Pentium 4 processors, that are based on the Northwood Core, and fit a Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Northwood_.28130.C2.A0nm.29

(Front Side Bus = FSB
The M/Ts listing means MegaTransfers per Second.
Believed to be a more accurate method of stating the FSB, than MHz.

MegaHertz
Mega = 1 Million
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second. Was named after a man with the last name Hertz.
Example; 400MHz = 400 Million Cycles per Second )

Intel Pentium 4 processors based on the Prescott Core, and utilizing the Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Prescott_.2890.C2.A0nm.29_2

sSpec Number will be on the processor, as well as the Part Number.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium_4/index.html

Scroll down for photos.

CPU support can be attested to looking at the specs for the motherboard chipset, on your motherboard.

The motherboard chipset is an Intel 865PE chipset.
Intel 82865PE northbridge chip, and an Intel ICH5 southbridge chip.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

Scroll down to 865PE in the left column.

The part number on the Intel ICH5 southbridge chip, is Intel 82801EB,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Southbridge_8xx_chipsets

The Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor (CPU), Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

HIGH-speed graphics is the AGP technology, or PCI Express technology.

Using a graphics card in a PCI slot, or using Integrated Graphics; is NOT high-speed graphics,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

The Slower capabilities of a computer are handled by the Southbridge chip.

If this is a question of what CPU is on your motherboard at present, and the motherboard is in a working computer, suggest use the free tiny program CPU-Z from CPUID.com,

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

Need to know how to download, install, and use CPU-Z, post back in a Comment.

Driver for it...


Please follow this link and select your OS.

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/865PE-Neo3-F--FS.html#/?div=Driver

Don't be surprise if there are only few drivers since this board is already compatible with several OS and therefore some driver are already present.

Best regards

I have ecs 865pe-a7 v1.0a my power supply is good but the computer is not turning on.


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

Vista driver


you will need to find the manufacturer of your sound chip eg Realtek and then go to their relevant site for drivers if supported, although it may not be as there would have been drivers within the Vista Operatring system installation.
