I have an abit kw7 mother board and i need the driver for the sound part of it cause i beleive that to be why my computer sound doesnt work

if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question exclamation mark? ! or a red X Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the
(((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it
if his does not fix the problem
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar for any further volume control settings you will need to right click on the volume icon system select adjust volume

click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps you
if you dont have a motherboard disc you will have to download the drivers

using this link you will be able select your drivers

if these arent right you will find free sound drivers
on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for ie:intel laptop

all software windows software mac software mobile and web apps

Why does the keyboard not work when I start up motherboard. all devices and memory are found but then asks to press F1 or DEL but keyboards (usb and ps2) aren't working :( Motherboard is ABIT KN8 Ultra

Try this.
Unplug usb key board.start pc.plug usb keyboard in.should work.

Try reinstalling usb drivers or chipset drivers for motherboard if above does not work.

What graphics cards can I use with a KW7 motherboard

Do you have the Motherboard Manual for your Abit KW7? If not here is Abit Support, and the Manuals download page,
(Just copy then paste it into your address bar. Press the Enter key)

The top file listed is what you want, not the KW7-G listed below it. Click on the blue icon. (Monitor with an arrow coming out of it)
This is a Zip file. A small window will come up, where you choose to->
Open with, or Save file. Click on the circle to the left of Save file.
Now go down and click on OK.

If you do not have your downloads set to go to your My Documents folder, (Start>My Documents), this zip file will go to your desktop screen. In either place double-click on the file name. In the next window go up to the top left, and click on -> Extract all files. Click on Next, then Next, then Finish. Now double-click on the PDF file icon.

Page 5 tells you it's an AGP slot for a graphics card. Page 21 tells you that it will support AGP graphics cards UP TO AGP 8X.
(Either an AGP 4X, or an AGP 8X. You do not want an AGP 4X graphics card! You want an AGP 8X graphics card. Uses 0.8 volts. {AGP 3.0 version)

You should also download and install the VIA 4 in 1 Drivers, if it hasn't been installed already, (Your motherboard has the VIA KT880 chipset)
(Read about the VIA 4 in 1 drivers on Page 51 in the Motherboard Manual)

Also here is a list of drivers available for your KW7 motherboard, from Abit Support should you ever need them,

Now if you are asking specifically what AGP graphics card should you buy, and install, I can give you an example. Only based on what I think. Use your own judgment.
1.Sapphire Radeon HD 3850, with 512MB of GDDR3 graphics ram. It's an AGP 8X graphics card. Only requires a 450 Watt power supply with a 30Amp 12 volt power rail. Does need 2X4 power cable from power supply.
