Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the software related to your soundcard.

Go to Device Manager and remove the sound card it is the device that has an exclamation point or question mark.

Turn off your PC and remove the Card. Then turn it back on again and enter the BIOS setup and disable the built in sound card of your motherboard then press F10 and save the changes.

Restart your computer and verify that windows is not going to scan for missing devices. Check the Device Manager again and look for any devices that has an exclamation point or question mark. If there is none. Turn off your computer put the sound card back in and turn it on again. Put in the CD Driver but exit on the autorun let windows detect the card automatically and wait for it to ask for the location of the drivers. Point or browse to the driver location and let the installation finish and click on ok. Your PC may ask for another restart do that turn on your speaker and listen for the boot up sound if your hear it then your card is now working.

Try to reattach your sound card. It will solve the problem. If it doesn't work you can format your computer or clean the viruses on your computer. If problem still occurs change the sound card.

Promble with Ram


No the problem isn't the ram, or video card, or lack of video cards.

The problem stems from using a 32 bit O/S, (Operating System), like Windows XP Home, or Windows XP Pro. (The 32 bit version of XP Pro. Microsoft made a 64-bit version of Windows XP Pro)

A 32 bit O/S will only 'recognize' UP TO 3.2GB's of ram. (Sometimes up to 3.5GB's)
You need a 64 bit O/S so that your computer will recognize all 4GB's of ram, when it is installed.

32 Bit? 64 Bit? What is all of this? It's kind of hard to explain in a few sentences. I would like to refer you to these links on Wikipedia, to explain 32 bit, and 64 bit further,

B.64-Bit:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/64-bit

No sound device in Sounds and Audio Devices after Realtek Sound Driver install


Download the attachment I found, unpack it into your folder of choice.
Then move over to the control panel and select that "PCI Device". Rightclick and install the audio bus drivers I provided for the PCI Device. During installation Windows should find something like Microsoft UAA Bus driver, I don't know the exact name. Do a restart after installation and everything should work fine.

MSI K9N4 SLI-F / Vid Card question


Hi, for the best graphics always go for dual graphic cards. This is the best way to obtain realistic 3D effects. The onboard audio chips is every bit as good as stated, MSI systems are equal to the best but at a lower price. The only change I can see that you need to make is to install a better power supply. A minimum 500w is needed with your system and if your budget allows then anthing up to 600w. Have fun with your games. Regards mistyman
