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.

My pc dont have sound


Hi,
Please be informed that any hardware device needs a driver software to run within a PC, and the driver software depends on the Hardware Make/Model and the Operating System software you are using in your PC to operate it.You will get the Driver software of any hardware within the CD provided with the hardware part at the time of its purchase. The hardware may be an entire PC,Laptop,VGA card, sound card, LAN card,webcam,printers etc.


If you do not have the CD or misplaced it somewhere then you need to download the driver software to get going. Thus you need to know all the above information to get the exact software your PC needs. As you have not mentioned the Hardware Make/model and Operating System you are using, i am unable to give you the direct download link.
However you can download the same by visiting the 'software downloads' section of the website of the hardware brand you have purchased. You just need to Google the name of the brand and visit their website and search for the download section.

Installation of mother board


hi im josh in cebu phils. friend try to use this solutions it will help you.
Installing the New Motherboard First, make sure that the new motherboard is the same form factor as the case. Then, make absolutely certain that the power supply is set for the correct voltage to avoid zapping the new board. Look at the back of the case for a small switch that says 115V and 230V, or something similar, as shown in Figure 3.12. This should be set to the voltage available in the country in which it is used; in North America, this voltage is 115.
0312.jpg
Figure 3.12: Power supply voltage switch. Next, make sure that no conductive surface comes in contact with any metal parts of the case. While some cases have elevated mounting holes that hold the board away from the case wall (see Figure 3.13), other cases call for standoffs. Standoffs are small spacers that go between the board's and the case's mounting holes (see Figure 3.14).
0313.jpg
Figure 3.13: Elevated mounting holes. 0314.jpg
Figure 3.14: Standoff assortment. After screwing in the screws, you need to install the power connectors and then follow the manufacturer's instructions for setup, which we discuss next. After you've done this, reinstall all of the compatible peripheral devices (if any) that were connected to the old motherboard. For more information on installing peripherals, see the rest of this chapter, Chapter 2, and the chapter appropriate for the type of device in question.
Motherboard Setup There are certain things you must do to the motherboard to get everything working together. Some boards have stickers indicating the proper positions of DIP switches and jumpers, but in most cases, the documentation (manual) is essential. If you don't have the manual, you can usually find information on the manufacturer's Web site.

Tip In some cases, the board was manufactured by one company but sold by another under a different trade name. In this case, you might be able to find the actual brand and model number by peeling off a brand/model-number sticker on the board to reveal the actual manufacturer's sticker. Make sure the board is not under warranty when you do this; peeling off the sticker might void an active warranty.
On the CD See the Industry Contacts document on the accompanying CD-ROM for manufacturer contact information.
DIP Switches and Jumpers All boards have DIP switches and/or jumpers (see Chapter 2 for general information on these). Depending on the board, these are used to select such settings as the speed and family of the processor, and there might also jumpers to reset the CMOS, redirect the sound from the rear to front connectors, select the type of memory to install, and others.
good luck.

Geforce2 mx card won't work


You may have zapped the video card. Early boards, as I think this is, used AGP 1x/2x, which was 1.5v or 3.3v. A TNT card, or the old ATI rage type card would work fine. But I believe that all of the GeForce cards were at least AGP 4x, which ran at .8v or 1.5v, and even newer ones were AGP 8x, only .8v.

So that is probably why the Geforce does not work. Hopefully you've not messed up the card or slot, and an older card might work. You should be able to pick one up cheap.

No sound device detected..........


Go back to device manager. The devices that you see that have a problem. Right click on the device than un-install the device. You will need the motherboard's driver for these device. In order to find the correct device driver's I'll need the boards model number & any revision's. Than I can direct you to the correct download site. Above you state it's a Gigbyte. The more detailed information you post the better the driver.
