Question about ASUS M2A-VM Motherboard

Sound on new pc not working

Hello there. I recently purchased a new, custom build PC. It was previously running XP as a stop-gap before I purchased vista 64bit home premium, and now the sound has stopped working, but in a strange way.
Apparently there are 2 devices in my sound, video and games controllers.
These are "High Definition Audio Device" and "PnP Audio Device" and the first one is working fine (apparently) but the second will not start. It is claiming the drivers are up to date. When I click on the volume control it comes up with High Definition Audio Device as the main mixer and play audio it registers a noise, however no matter what output i use it cannot be heard. I think it might be a problem with the outputs but how can I fix it?

Here's the important specs:
ACERM2A-VM PCI-E MOBO
8192MB (8GB) DDR2

and HD 5.1 AC883 6 Channel is the inbuilt sound type.

If you need any other information please holler!

Please help, thanks!

Dan

    It didn't come with CD drivers unforunately, it's onboard sound. However I think I've narrowed down the problem - the PnP audio devices are the main jacks (7 jacks in all) and because they won't start (That goddamned error 10!) it won't take sound out of them. I've got no idea what the HDMI output is but it's definitely not one of the standard audio jacks and I've only got dvi and vga output! Until I can get these "PnP audio device"s working it'll be no sound.

    Alternatively, I could probably just buy a soundcard. But that costs money =)

Here's one from left field,

Download this photo app. It on all new customer's software builds.

After that, yes, there is an XP Mode available for free download to users of W7 Pro, Ultimate or Enterprise and would run your previous more "friendly" version.

Probably, having more RAM would make VMWARE run faster.

Check the manufacturer's web-site -- surely, they have a version which *DOES* work as a "native" application under Windows XP and Windows VIsta and Windows 7, i.e., no need for "compatibility settings".

How do you fix windows XP audio drivers for a Dell Vostro A860? I've downloaded the XP audio drivers but they do not work...


hello

Before you install the new driver you have to uninstall the previous version and then you have to restart your system.

If this don't work then these could be the reasons..
  1. The downloaded driver is corrupt of some file is missing,
  2. You have not downloaded the right version for your system.
try these things and hopefully they will work.

Thank you

No sound after installing windows xp


Hello!

Your motherboard holds an AC'97 sound chip, so the standard drivers from Realtek should work just fine :)

Hi mate...


Hi there. It sounds like the XP you have installed doesn't have the correct/updated driver for your sound card. Try installing the most current Sound driver from the manufacturer's website. It would also be a very good idea to download XP Service Pack 3 from Microsoft, as this will have added support and drivers in the database.

Let me know if it works

Thank you

Using a previous compatibility mode would be a stop-gap solution. The permanent fix would be to upgrade the software to a Windows XP compatible version.
