Question about EliteGroup P4VMM2 Motherboard

1 Answer

GameGirlX@aol.com ORIGINAL QUESTION: I am so confused - completely lost sound posted by gamegirlx on Feb 20, 2009 I am so confused - completely lost sound - reinstalled original drivers cd - reformatted 5 times - getting so tired...don't know what to do. I have p4VMM2 v1.0 - have searched the sites lowest I can find is V1.3 - I used those drivers still no sound. I did not flash the bios because if this isn't the correct version I don't want to kill the PC. I see other versions all the way up to: EliteGroup P4VMM2 PCB 8.0 Sound driver Realtek AC'97 Audio Driver. Update to support new model KM266PRO-M2 ; CD 2.6VI Does this mean that version 8.0's 4 in 1, sound, vga and bios are all updates for V1.0 or is 8.0 actually a whole different version of the motherboard? Please help - I have been trying to fix for 3 wks - absolutely NO errors on the hardware page and everything is turned up, turned on and not muted...I am so desperate - nothing was installed to cause the failure - the most I can figure is that windows update to XPSP3 killed or blocked something - was unable to get it back from restores before finally reformatting. FARCRY1010 RESPONSE: Solution #1posted on Feb 20, 2009 Farcry1010 Rank: Wiz Rating: 88%, 5 votes if you are afraid to update the bios i dont blame you dont do it. If the bios updates and your processor is no longer supported becasue the amount of size of the bios chihps memory the manufacture can only put in a limited amount of info so dont update bios. If i were you i would go into control panel and remove any audio software related to your sound card. Then go into the device manager( right click my computer' then properties. then device manager and then scroll down to sounds video and game cont. and expand this . see if there is a sound card installed if so remove it as well as all software related to it. After this at top of device man. screen click on scan for changes . when it finds your sound card you will get a prompt to search everytwhere this includes the internet agree to do this ......then you might get another prompt to go online agree to this. see if this helps. oh i forgot to mentioin to make sure those speakers do work GAMEGIRLX@aol.com RESPONSE: Quick details: O/S Model Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 (build 2600) ECS P4VMM2 1.0 Enclosure Type: Desktop Processor a Main Circuit Board b 2.00 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4 8 kilobyte primary memory cache 512 kilobyte secondary memory cache Board: ECS P4VMM2 1.0 Bus Clock: 100 megahertz BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. 07.00T 04/02/01 Drives Memory Modules c,d 77.91 Gigabytes Usable Hard Drive Capacity 61.13 Gigabytes Hard Drive Free Space Multimedia Controller (3x) MPU-401 Compatible MIDI Device Standard Game Port VIA AC'97 Audio Controller (WDM) Loaded orig'l mainboard cd ver 1.4VI-didn't work Looked for updated drivers and used everything but BIOS at http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Downloads/ProductsDetail_Download.aspx?detailid=46&DetailName=Bios&DetailDesc=P4VMM2(V1.1A)&CategoryID=1&MenuID=39&LanID=8 I Thank you so much for your kind response - I have performed those steps multiple times to no avail. Plugged current speakers into another pc -works great. Plugged different speakers into this pc - still no sound. I have even reset jumper to clear the cmos - no luck. I have searched every tech board I could find and many people have the same problem with no solution. I was kind of stuck on the following article I found believing this was my problem but no matter how many times I reformatted and performed the steps I cannot get KB888111 to install and show UAA in system hardware device. Could you please read and let me know If I am on the wrong path to a solution - maybe I am just not loading the right AC'97 drivers - do you have a link? When I load the drivers...do I need to load something like REALTEK audio or VIA Enhanced AC'97 codecs and drivers? Didn't have anything like that loaded originally - just the actual mainboard drivers. Steps I performed on fix listed below: Reformatted to XP SP1A and loaded a previous version of fix below KB835221 - didn't work - uninstalled KB835221 - went to XP SP2 and performed KB888111 fix without changing the registry - nothing - uninstalled upgraded to XP SP3 did KB888111 changing the registry - nothing...add/remove hardware shows KB888111 installed but system device driver does not show anything relating to UAA. Windows media Player and Winamp think that audio is working fine - no errors at all in system hardware device for sounds - actual PC makes system sounds but from the system not the speakers. Windows Audio-set to automatic and started Bios onboard AC'97 - enabled I have deleted everything and let the system search and re-install - still nothing I have read hundreds of articles published by different groups - Audio is no longer a mystery to me - seems pretty straightforward - I am stumped. The FIX Article: http://www.tech-archive.net/Archive/WinXP/microsoft.public.windowsxp.setup_deployment/2008-05/msg00213.html Excerpt from the article: UAA HD AUDIO DEVICE SUPPORT IN WINDOWS XP SP3 This is another MS nasty for all the deployment folks pushing XP SP3 to computers with UAA HD Audio devices. Yes SP3 will support the devices and the drivers are included however,, the patch IS NOT included! The update to KB835221, KB888111 doesn't link to the download but instructs you to call MS Support to get the patch which doesn't work on SP3. This patch is required before any of the HD device drivers are installed and should included in the reference PC image therefore, apply this before sysprep and capture. 1. On the reference PC change the CSDVersion registry key to reflect XP SP2: a. HKLMSYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlWindowsCSDVersion value=200 (use512 when scripting) 2. Restart the PC 3. Install KB888111xpsp2.exe (follow the link below and rename KB888111XPSP2.txt to .exe) 4. Change the CSDVersion key back to reflect XP SP3 again: a. HKLMSYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlWindowsCSDVersion value=300 (use768 when scripting) 5. Restart the PC, finalize configuration of the reference PC, sysprep and capture. You'll need to obtain the KB888111 patch, Code for 2 SMS installer Question: 1. (Do I even have UAA HD AUDIO capabilities?) 2. Can I load the 8.0 sound driver above without damaging my system? 3. Is the 8.0 AC'97 driver the latest release for 1.0 chip or is it a different motherboard? Feel free ro crroberate with as many wonderful people like you who might have another suggestion I'll try anything Thanks so much in advance for your efforts P

    Thanks for your reply - I have considered that as my problem. I don't know how to figure out exactly name/brand to buy. The slots on this board are different from my other PC's and the cards that I have (6) won't fit. Could you please tell me exactly which one I should buy?

    You're help is much appreciated - Thank You

OK let me start by saying I didn't ready any of the above. The simple answer is to buy a pci sound card. That will take care of the problem cheap and fast. It's likely that your onboard sound died on the motherboard. I used to own that board and random things would fail on it all the time.

Sound card should run you $20 or less.

    Is there a Best Buy or other major retail chain close to you that sells parts?

    Or did you want to purchase a sound card online?

    Have you visited the Windows Update site and if so have you tried using the "custom" update?



  • RescueTechLA
    RescueTechLA Feb 25, 2009

    ANY one like this one will do.

    Just so long as it's PCI

    http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/29...

    It says delivery only but I'm certain that they can ship it direct to the store for you. Or you could try stopping by any of the other stores you listed.

    Best of luck!

SOURCE: Is it possible to run vista aero on EliteGroup km400-m2?

Vista Aero is dependent on your Graphics hardware, not on your motherboard. The onboard VIA/S3G is not going to be capable of running Aero, but you do have an AGP 8x port that you could buy a card for. Try picking up an ATI 48xx series card if you plan on doing some gaming. If you just want to run Aero, however, just about any card nVidia 76xx series, 86xx, 96xx, or any ATI 26xx, 36xx, or 46xx series card will do.

Your power supply is fried. I had the same problem with my Bestec ATX 250 power supply. I fixed the problem by installing the StatTech model: ATXPOWER250. It was easy to install and works well. It is almost identical to the original but more quiet. I got it for $29 at MicroCenter.com. Also at online Newegg.com, Radioshack.com, Provantage.com, June 20,2009

Hi, the original R4 revolution will only worked up to kernel 1.16 or 1.17 or 1.18 (cant remember its one of them). Anything that is higher than that are for the R4 SDHC and others (different type). R4 Cards can be pretty confusing as there are many types (original v2, v3, SDHC, supercard...etc) and they all have their own website. Cant remember the link to the original one but you can get the software at http://nds-gear.com/software-r4v2.zip

Hopefully this one should work for you
