Question about Biostar P4M890-M7 Motherboard

1 Answer

No Sound Hello, I have a P4M890-M7 TE mainboard and it's not putting out any sound. It worked the first time around, but I just had my OS (XP pro) reinstalled due to it being infected with a nasty virus. Everything else seems to work just fine except the sound. There is no speaker icon in the lower right corner (if that helps) and it doesn't matter what I'm trying to play... Video works (not sure if they are conected) I really don't have much of a clue when it comes to "chipsets" or drivers... I understand that they are needed, but don't know what they actually do or how to check if I have them, if they are installed, or what I need... So I would really appreciate a detailed step by step explination of how to fix this... Thank you so much for your help!

Go to Start\Control Panel\System and click on the hardware tab. Do you see a device with a question mark listed as unknown device or audio controller?
Here is the website, which should have the driver for our Biostar mainboard.
http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en-us/mb/driver.php?S_ID=173

Under the heading onboard audio driver, download the driver for Win XP, then open it once it is finished installing. You will need to uncompress the driver package since it is a compressed file, but once that is done you should be able to install it using the setup.exe file.
A good free decompressor is 7-zip, which you can find free here:
http://www.7-zip.org/
Let me know if there are any other questions, etc.

It doesn't appear that BIO Star created drivers for vista/7 that I can tellhttp://www.biostar-usa.com/mbdownloads.asp?model=P4M890-M7%20PCI-E

Try the top one from the link above with XP/64 under the OS column the 64 may indicate Vista which in a lot of cases will also work on Windows 7

You'll need to clear the bios back to its default settings. There sre five versions of motherboards.
See the list below;
P4M890-M7 TE 7.x
P4M890-M7 SE 7.x
P4M890-M7 PCI-E 7.1
P4M890-M7 PCI-E 7.0
P4M890-M7 FE 7.x
I'll guide you using the manual for P4M890-M7 FE 7.x
Turn to page 17 and follow the instruction to clear the cmos. Open page 6 for a closer look of the JCMOS location. Once finished you will need to enter the bios and re-setup the settings. This time around try not to over clock the memory.

Sound driver


Hi sgs182, when a driver fails to install correctly its best to install through windows device manager. Suggest you try this method of instillation before trying another HD audio driver. Also enter your bios & make sure the HD is enabled.
Either use the driver CD that came with the motherboard or download the driver from Biostar. Windows 2003 is more like window XP however we both know what you need is a driver for 2003. Biostar makes other P4M890-M7 motherboards that do support win 2003 for HD.

· P4M890-M7 TE 7.x
· P4M890-M7 SE 7.x
· P4M890-M7 PCI-E 7.1
· P4M890-M7 PCI-E 7.0
· P4M890-M7 FE 7.x
Biostar motherboards 7.0 & 7.1 audio drivers are the same file size of 24.77MB & support x86/2003 operating systems.
How to install through windows device manager?
Left click once on the start button. Slide up to & left click on control panel. Find the System icon & open it. Left click on the hardware tab than left click on the device manager button. Scroll down to Sound, video and game controller, which should already be opened. You should see a yellow explanation point here.
Right click once on the yellow ! point & left click once on update driver. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). (Only if you do not want to install from the CD).
Click the green check mark once & it will go away.
Click the browse button, click the + sign next to my computer. Find the desktop folder
You created & named. Open it. High-light the folder that has the driver in it & click ok.
Windows will find the correct driver software within the folder & install it automatically. Once completed. Close all opened windows & restart you’re system. Test your audio. If you intend to use a mic, you will need to set this up through the Sounds audio device within the control panel.

Good luck!
Mike
