I had pc intel motherboard 82801 but audio card can not detected


Intel 82801 refers to the Southbridge chip, of the motherboard chipset;
for an Intel 800 series motherboard chipset, for the Intel Pentium 4 series processors,

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

Notice in the chart under the heading - South bridge;
ICH2, and ICH4 and ICH5 and ICH5R

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

Does NOT state anything exact about the motherboard.
For this you need the Model Number.

Granted the Southbridge chip, of the motherboard chipset; is what handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.

Audio is one,

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

[Note CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.
Does NOT mean personal Computer.

This technology applies to YOUR motherboard, and not to motherboards that support the Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9, processors ]

However the Southbridge chip handles Audio through the Audio chipset.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

The device is the Audio chipset.
You didn't state what Windows O/S you are using.

The reason BIOS doesn't detect the Audio chipset, is because the Driver is gone. Audio driver.

(Windblows lost the address to the driver)

IF, I have the model number of the motherboard;
Or,
IF I have the manufacturer name of the computer, and it's model number;
I can look to see if Audio drivers are available, and instruct you how to download, AND install.
I also need the Operating System used.

Windows what?

Post back in a Comment.

Select the "Start Menu."


Click to select "Control Panel." This will open a new window with several clickable options.


Choose "System and Maintenance," typically located near the top left-hand corner of the Control Panel


Click to select "System" from the new list of options


Look for the CPU's stock speed as indicated under the "Processor" heading. This is a ballpark, relatively close estimate of your computer's CPU speed, as provided by the manufacturer.

Checking the Stock CPU Speed in Windows XP


Click the "Start Menu.


Right-click on "My Computer."


Select "Properties." By default the Properties window will usually be set to the "General" tab, but if the window is set to a different tab you'll need to click on the "General" tab located near the top of the window.


Check the CPU rating as listed underneath the "Computer" heading.


Determining Real-Time CPU Speed


Go to CPU Speed Professional's website (see Resources) and download "CPU Speed Professional."

While other free CPU clocks exist, many are beta programs with glitches and unwanted bugs. CPU Speed Professional is well-known and reputable, receiving the "Vista 5 Star Software Award" according to its website.


Install the recently downloaded

" http://download.cnet.com/cpu-speed-professional/3000-2086_4-10833139.html "

file by double-clicking on it and following on-screen prompts to complete the automated install procedure.


Open CPU Speed Professional.


Click "Test Your Speed" on the main program interface.

A real-time, active measurement of your CPU speed will appear numerically, and CPU Speed Professional will also display your CPU speed on a stylish meter for easy visual comprehension.


hope this helps

What processor can i use with 446476-001 system board


The HP 446476-001 laptop motherboard, or also stated as HP motherboard used for the HP Pavilion dv6000 series of Notebook PC's;

A) Has an Intel 965PM motherboard chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_mobile_chipset

Has a;

B) Socket P processor socket, for Intel processors

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

Using this information you know;

1) That the Intel PM965 motherboard chipset supports
Intel Core 2 Duo processors,

with either a 533MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or a 667MHz FSB, or an 800MHz FSB.

[Note*

The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge, and Southbridge chip, for YOUR motherboard technology.

(Does not apply to motherboards that support the Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 processors)

The Northbridge part number is Intel 82965PM.

You won't see this part number on a chipset, because the Northbridge chip is under a small finned heatsink.

The Southbridge chip is an Intel ICH8-M
Part number is 82801HM. This you should see on a chipset ]

2) That the processor socket is a Socket P.

So you need an Intel Core2 Duo processor, with either a 533MHz, or 667MHz, or 800MHz FSB, and fits in a Socket P processor socket.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

(You may, or may not need a BIOS update )

Unsupported Video Drivers


It is referring to the capabilities of your video subsystem. Check your motherboard manual if you are using an on-board video controller or the documentation for your add-in video card to see if it supports this feature. If it doesn't, you will need to buy a video card that supports it in order to play the game.
