I would first check the driver for your sound card. From the start button, go to control panel,then performance and maintanance, then system, finally device manager. Scroll down, listed is all the hardware installed on your system. Are there any yellow question marks to the left of any listed devices, especially having to do with audio systems? If there are click on the device, go to properties and then to update drivers. If your sound was operating earlier the drivers should be on your system files and update as needed.Depending on how up to date you are on your windows updates, you may also have an option to search the internet for drivers. Another option is to install a free software program, AIDA 32. After installation it lists all system hardware and even gives links to download drivers.I have at times had to use the option of choosing which driver to install in the previously mentioned device manager, but this is a trial and error meathod and I only use it as a last resort.

Why my audio driver failed to intall?


Try looking for a patch or updated driver for your sound system in your PC, integrated or a sound card that should be available at the manufacturers website(for mobo or integrated/external sound). After updating it should work, rather it has to because sp3 is better suited than SP2 and generally microsoft itself distributes the patches & updates. Alternatively you can visit driverguide.com, become a free member and let the Drive probe tell you which driver, including version, your PC will require to play audio/stero sounds........sodeep

Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 installation problems


Hi speedfreak44, during the installation of windows one of the drivers did not install correctly & windows registry is messed up.
The blue screen is a typical response from windows. Even though you're windows installed SP2, there are another 89+ updates for SP2. (A reinstall with-out a format is not advised).
Suggest you enter you're bios & disable ACPI. This one I know for sure will show up in windows device manager as a PCI device with no name. Try again to boot windows. If it still fails to enter in standard mode than a complete re-install will be required including a format. Personally I do not use windows XP pro/home w/SP2 CD to perform the format, (After receiving a blue screen).
I have found it is 98% better to use the software tools, downloaded from the Mfg's web site for you're hard drive. Use the bootable software (On a floppy or CD), to format you're hard drive. Most Mfg's hard drive software will allow you to change the cluster size up. Windows standard uses a 4kb cluster size & you loose far more hard drive space. With a 16kb you loose only the file allocation or FAT, which is normal.
Than using the Win XP CD/SP2 install windows, clean.
(No need to format).
When finished installing windows, load the Gigabyte driver CD & install the chipset & other CD drivers. Turn on windows firewall & update windows SP2. (ASAP), (Save SP3 update for later).
It is in the updates of windows to iron out software & hardware driver updates. Do not install you're antivirus software until windows has finished updating its self & you install any hardware updates also through windows update. (Continue to leave the ACPI disabled in bios until updating is complete).
You can enable ACPI, antivirus software & printer software all.

You will find some needed software will install during windows update. Like; Quad Core processor update. With either home edition or pro it is advised to install .Net framework updates 1 at a time & only restart when prompted by windows. Other wise click the refresh button & continue windows updating. (You can save the .Net framework updates for last if you wish). You're video card may need .Net framework 2.0 or better for installation.
I am hell bent on installing windows once & correctly the first time. I understand you want to get this baby up & running but take the time & run the hard drive tools/utilities. (It's worth it)!

Good Luck speedfreak44!
If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

Please let me know if this got you're system running without the blue screens?
One last item. It's also worth checking the dates on the Gigabyte CD to Gigabyte's web site before installing other drivers. Including the chipset drivers. You want to install the newest drivers the first time around. Here is the link to you're Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 motherboard main web site.
