Re: Can I install Windows XP SP2 to this motherboard?

Yes, much faster, the minimum amount of memory XP needs to run fairly smoothly is 512MB of memory, especially if you have onboard (shared) graphics as this will be taken from your initial memory as well. So to sum up if you have 128MB ram in at the moment and your graphics memory just to run a normal application will use a minimum of 8MB, take this away from 128Mb = 120MB, if you run a dvd film or a game upto 64MB will be used leaving 64MB for the system, not to mention the memory programmes take to start up quiker the next time you use the programme.

I want sound driver of MSI 865GVM3-V Motherboard for windows 7................plz help me

Drivers like, Lan, Audio, Intel INF Drivers, etc.. readily came packed with Windows 7 O.S. but the chipset drivers (Graphics driver included) isn't available for this model for windows 7 (Click Here for details).

You can run "windows update" from the Internet Explorer from the system where this motherboard is installed. Open Internet Explorer, click "Tools" and select "Windows Update" and follow the onscreen instructions, {Note: this should be done when the system is On and the internet is running}. Since Lan driver is readily installed on Windows 7, you need not to reinstall Lan driver, you can run the internet connection without any problem.

Another option is "Msi Live Update", download the application here (click here) and run the program from the system where this motherboard is installed. [Open the above link and click on one of the names of the areas "Europe" or "U.S." or "Asia"].

These are all what you can deal with this.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Problem installling Windows xp SP2 with P4VMA-M Mainboard

If your trying to install it over the current installation then select Format at the installation screen of XP setup. In order to do that you would have to boot from the disc, that way you don't have to load windows. Also when you have completed and installed XP, try to locate some software to detect what drivers you need. I use driver detective and it worked fine for me, or alternately send me a message and ill run you through how to check the motherboard for the version manually.

DVD Sound Missing

Hello folks,
If you install another program like Nero xxx. Nero adds or can take away window media player's format from playing certain codec’s. Any program installed like burner software can do the same. This is a software issue. To help fix it download & install codec's from this site. This should help to regain sound for DVD formats.
Free download.
Other items. Some PC's can loose DVD sound in windows media player 11. Check that you're version of windows is up to date. Last ditch effort. Insert the DVD & open windows explorer. Right click on the DVD drive & see what the format is. (Ex: ***.vob, ***.mp4, ***.divx). Than search either Microsoft or Google for the matching codec's. Download & install it from the web.
Suggestion. Use only one playback software program. Bouncing between programs is not suggested. Find which looks & sound best for you & uninstall the others if not needed.
If by chance non of the above has helped or fixed this issue, please list the program you are using to play DVD's & the format of the DVD.

Good luck all!
