Question about Iwill KA266Plus Motherboard

3 Answers

Need information - unknown connectors on sound card.

I needed a sound card for this used e-Machine, so I picked up a used "Diamond" brand board, model MX400. It seems to work just fine; Windows XP (Professional) recognized it right away and loaded up a "Canyon" driver by an outfit called VIA.

One side of the board has two 4-pin connectors. One is green, the other white. I'd like to get a copy of the original user guide and the software that was supplied with this board. I spent a lot of time on the Diamond site, and can't seem to locate the information I need. Can you help me please?

Thanks in advance for any information you can supply me with.

Regards,

Model: MX400 Size: 7.93 Mb Date added: Manufacturer: Diamond Multimedia Device type: Sound Operation system: Windows 95 / Windows 98 MD5: b01aa7b47888378baf30d0341d92e066

Since Diamond was bought out by S3 (which then became Sonicblue) the support is nonexistant. There are no drivers specific for this card for Win2k/XP, and there never will be.The only reason to get any sound at all with the MX400 in XP is because it is based on the Canyon3D chipset by ESS, and the reference drivers included in XP seem to work, not very well though.

I couldn't find a manual, mate, and I'm a member of several manual websites.. there's simply not one to be had :(

As for the four pin connectors.. I have a vague recollection of having to connect my old sound cards to the computers motherboard, in order to hear sound from the computer's inner speaker.. aah.. the golden age of computers :D

Anyway, that's all I got, so I hope it helps!

You may try the ESS Maestro drivers which should supply you with stereo sound but not 3D sound. The MX400 is apparently no longer supported and the quality will not be %100 by using the Maestro driver. You might have to consider purchasing a new sound card.

Refer to this article: http://www.computing.net/answers/drivers/diamond-mx400-drivers-request/1152.html

I hope that gives you some foresight into your solution.

Adios,
S.D.

How will i know the sound card of my pc? i have it reformat. now i donno how to identify my sound card..


Many name brand companies will supply the common component drivers on their website. If you look up your system model then you should at least be able reduce the number of cards you are looking for.
There are various freeware packages that claim to identify the unknown devices, but I find sifting through a handful of drivers from a manufacturer website is much faster and more reliable.
If the computer was custom built then their should have been provided software discs or information to identify the card. On board sound cards can also be identified by visiting the motherboard manufacturer website and searching for the board model. A list of drivers is typically available and even more refined than common manufacturers of systems.

I installed ubuntu 9.04 and i am experiencing a sound problem. What should i do to make sound come out?


What you need is a sound driver for your PC.You need three pieces of information to download the sound driver.
  1. The operating system you are using in your case it is "Ubuntu 9.04"
  2. The second thing you need is the name of your Hardware Manufacturer of your sound card or if you have the sound card built-in to the mother board than you need its vendor name.
  3. The model number of your sound card or the model number of the mother board.
Take these pieces of information and put it in to a good search engine like Google.com, Bing.com or Yahoo.com etc. You will see many links where you can download the appropriate sound driver to install in your PC to have sound.

Good Luck!

No sound card installed


if it says that no sound card is installed yo need the driver for the sound card ..If you have the drivers cd that came with the computer ..just look on it for the sound card ..and run it ...restart and that's all...if you do not have such a cd ..and you need the driver ..you have to let me know the exact make and model of the computer ..and the operation system you use..
In case it is a built computer and it has a separate sound card ...I need to know the model of the sound card ..or...if it is not a brand one like I said ...and the sound card is on the mother board...and you do not have the mother board drivers cd ...(on it will be the driver you need) I can find the driver if you let me know the model of the motherboard ..

No sound


Go to My computer, click on view system information, click on the hardware tab, click on device manager, look for anything highlighted with a yellow question mark or anything in red. Delete these. Reset your computer and see if your windows takes care of this problem. Sometimes updating your service pack will correct this also. Find out what card you have and go to your internet browser and type it in. Try to get to the manufacture site and download most recent drivers. Hopes this helps. Feel free to contact me if this doesn't work. Need the brand, model, system running on. Thanks.

Sound card : Unknown SiS Hardware.... what would i do?


Check out System Information for Windows ( http://www.gtopala.com ) Download and run that.

If you have onboard audio: Go to Hardware>motherboard Look at your motherboard manufacturer and model. Go to the Manufacturers website, look up that model, download audio drivers for it.
If you have a sound card, then you need to find out the manufacturer and model of it, same thing- go to their website and download the drivers.

Unknown sound card


is it a seperate sound card or is it onboard, if it's on board let me know the motherboard brand & the model. if it seperate. chances are that you will have to use something like driver checker, where it will automatically download the driver for you.
