I lost my motherboard driver it posibble to download the correct cd ?

yes, you need to go to the motherboard manufacturer site, then download drivers whichi youneed for your particular motherboard and operating system.

if you use windows, windows 2k, xp and above will load even when drivers are missing with generic drivers. then connect to the net and download needed updated and specificc drivers.

start with display driver, then processor/bridge drivers, then network and finaly sound. follow instruction on the screen.

as you did not provide any information, this general help only can be provided. if this is insufficient, please return and clarify what motherboard manufacturer and model and what operating syste do you use.

if you find this short info useful, please give me your vote, thanx!

How can i fix this error code? error code :

Is this for a Realtek audio driver? Try this: Here is the solution:
  • Open Device Manager (Start> Control Panel> System> Hardware)
  • In the "View" menu , select "Devices by connection":

  • Disable and uninstall by right clicking on "Bus Driver for Microsoft UAA High Definition Audio":
  • You can now install the drivers normally and without error.
If you still have problems, uninstall and delete the audio driver file and get a new driver file, it could be corrupt, or even the wrong one. A great program for locating current driver files is Drivermax...I love that program. You can download 2 drivers a day for free with it.

New motherboard makes my wireless nic loose signal.

It sounds like a driver issue.
I assume you mean the card worked previously on an old motherboard.
Remove the wireless NIC driver and then re-install it. I assume their are no yellow exclamation marks agianst your NIC in windows system properties? To see sys properties right-click "My Computer" select Properties/Hardware/Device Manager. Look for the network adaptors section. You can update drivers from here on your wirless card or even try the Troubleshooter tab.
if you don't have the driver CD let windows go onto the internet and search for a driver.
If you rely on the wireless card to connect to your internet connection, perhaps you can connect your computer to the internet modem or router via your computers LAN/network connection?
If that's not possible, download the driver from the NIC cards manufacturer website and pop it onto a USB thumb drive which can then be installed onto your new computer.
Last thought, make sure you are only using one controlling application for your NIC ie you use either the Windows Zero Config Utility OR the NIC cards manufacturer utily eg D-Link, Netcomm, etc etc
That is not both at once as windows has a major hissy fit.

If you are running Windows Vista,
and you have the soundmax AD1888 Chipset,
you have no sound in Vista . . . relax, this problem is common.

Try the following soundmax AD1888 Drivers in this torrent.

You will find 2 maps in the downloaded file.
1) Use the swsetup, there is a setup.exe in it, install, then reboot your pc. You should have sound now.

2) If this does not correct your problem,, update your driver using device manager,
with the other map (Vista-Driver-Vista)

This has worked in nearly every instance :-)
Follow this link below to the file. Please be sure to provide appropriate feedback for me if this helped!

Installation problem of Ethernet Driver

So, you have a "bootleg" version of Windows, and now you are needing "support" ??? Get legal, and then call Microsoft for support for updates downloaded from Windows Update web-site.

Can you access "DEVICE MANAGER", and then "ROLLBACK" the driver for the network adapter?

Sound problem

I would first check the driver for your sound card. From the start button, go to control panel,then performance and maintanance, then system, finally device manager. Scroll down, listed is all the hardware installed on your system. Are there any yellow question marks to the left of any listed devices, especially having to do with audio systems? If there are click on the device, go to properties and then to update drivers. If your sound was operating earlier the drivers should be on your system files and update as needed.Depending on how up to date you are on your windows updates, you may also have an option to search the internet for drivers. Another option is to install a free software program, AIDA 32. After installation it lists all system hardware and even gives links to download drivers.I have at times had to use the option of choosing which driver to install in the previously mentioned device manager, but this is a trial and error meathod and I only use it as a last resort.

Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 installation problems

Hi speedfreak44, during the installation of windows one of the drivers did not install correctly & windows registry is messed up.
The blue screen is a typical response from windows. Even though you're windows installed SP2, there are another 89+ updates for SP2. (A reinstall with-out a format is not advised).
Suggest you enter you're bios & disable ACPI. This one I know for sure will show up in windows device manager as a PCI device with no name. Try again to boot windows. If it still fails to enter in standard mode than a complete re-install will be required including a format. Personally I do not use windows XP pro/home w/SP2 CD to perform the format, (After receiving a blue screen).
I have found it is 98% better to use the software tools, downloaded from the Mfg's web site for you're hard drive. Use the bootable software (On a floppy or CD), to format you're hard drive. Most Mfg's hard drive software will allow you to change the cluster size up. Windows standard uses a 4kb cluster size & you loose far more hard drive space. With a 16kb you loose only the file allocation or FAT, which is normal.
Than using the Win XP CD/SP2 install windows, clean.
(No need to format).
When finished installing windows, load the Gigabyte driver CD & install the chipset & other CD drivers. Turn on windows firewall & update windows SP2. (ASAP), (Save SP3 update for later).
It is in the updates of windows to iron out software & hardware driver updates. Do not install you're antivirus software until windows has finished updating its self & you install any hardware updates also through windows update. (Continue to leave the ACPI disabled in bios until updating is complete).
You can enable ACPI, antivirus software & printer software all.

You will find some needed software will install during windows update. Like; Quad Core processor update. With either home edition or pro it is advised to install .Net framework updates 1 at a time & only restart when prompted by windows. Other wise click the refresh button & continue windows updating. (You can save the .Net framework updates for last if you wish). You're video card may need .Net framework 2.0 or better for installation.
I am hell bent on installing windows once & correctly the first time. I understand you want to get this baby up & running but take the time & run the hard drive tools/utilities. (It's worth it)!

Good Luck speedfreak44!
If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

Please let me know if this got you're system running without the blue screens?
One last item. It's also worth checking the dates on the Gigabyte CD to Gigabyte's web site before installing other drivers. Including the chipset drivers. You want to install the newest drivers the first time around. Here is the link to you're Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 motherboard main web site.

Usb ports not working

Hi stilla, when you were in the device manager did you notice any yellow ! points? This is important for me to know, & will come in handy for re-installing you're audio driver software.
Since you setup this board I'm guessing you installed Windows XP (Home or Pro). (If you installed any version of Vista let me know because Vista is famous for loosing USB ports & CD-ROM drives). Vista will need other suggestive steps to repair.
It is suggested that you run windows update service. This is needed not only for security patches but also for USB ports and other devices connected to you're system. I'm hoping after you updating windows you're USB's will function. When installing update & you will come across .Net framework versions, please install only one at a time. Please do not sip any because there are updates for the update. When you finish updating you're system through windows update service, do not install service pack 3. Wait until these other problem has been addressed.
After the last Win update restart the system (Even if windows does not ask you to). Go back into & run windows update service again. (Choose Custom update this time).
After windows finishes checking you're system, look to the left side of the page. You are looking for hardware updates. If there are some, download & install. Next, restart you're PC and enter the bios. (Press the delete key every 2 seconds until the bios main menu opens). Set Plug & play OS to No. This will be within the Advanced menu.
This allows the bios to set Irq’s & DMA's instead of windows for the basic input & outputs of the motherboard. Pages 2-11 in you’re manual. (This has nothing to do with speeding up or slowing down the computer).
Click on this link.
This will load Asus drive site for you're A7N8X-VM board. Click the + sign next to Audio. Create a folder on you're desktop & name it Realtek. Download the driver for you're OS & save the driver in the folder you created. The file is compressed. You will need to uncompress the file & keep the uncompressed files within the same folder. If you do not have WinZip you can download a free 45 day trial version into you're PC. Free download:
Once WinZip is installed right click once on the file A pop-up window will open, slide down to WinZip & left click, Extract to here. Open add/remove programs. Uninstall the sound driver AC'97. Restart you're PC. When windows finishes loading, open device manager. If there is a yellow ! point within Sound, audio and game controller, right click on it once. Than left click update driver. Windows hardware wizard will load. In the first window click No, not at this time. Click next. Click the circle, Install from a list or specific location & click next. Click in the box Search removable media, (This will remove the green check mark).
Than click the Browse button. Go to & open the folder you created (Realtek).
Click once on the folder WDM, than click OK. The downloaded driver software should install.
Windows sometimes just doesn't install some devices as it should & installing through device manager seems to work much better. Close all opened windows & restart you're PC. If you're sound still does not function than the onboard, integrated sound chip is defective or you're speakers are bad. You're board is beyond Asus 3 year warranty period. You will have to buy a PCI sound card to regain sound for you're system. I can suggest a replacement sound card from these links.

Please let me know if the above suggestions have made a difference? Post any errors, problem or failures. If anything does not go well, explain what did not work so I can possibly help you farther. It's my goal to get you're system to function.

Good Luck!
