Question about ASUS Z91N Barebone

1 Answer

Windows corrupt and driver set


My Asus machine just prompted me with 2 problems.
I was using two windows XP on my system. First one was a Japanese Windows XP and the other was a XP professional.
The Japanese OS had all my documents and other personal data stored in MY Documents folder which was Password protected. Now, My Japanese Window is corrupted and I can no longer use it. I dont have its CD so cant repair it as well. Also, the biggest problem of all is that I cant access my documents, including the driver set for ASUS Z91E which was saved in the same password protected MyDocument in Japanese XP.
Is their any possible way to save my data from the other operating system which I can currently use? Also, can any one help me to attain the drivers for ASUS z91?

I will be extremely thankfull for any kind of support.

Re your queries:
1. "Is their any possible way to save my data from the other operating system which I can currently use?" - possibly

2. Also, can any one help me to attain the drivers for ASUS z91?
Most of the needed drivers for an Asus Z91E are available at the Asus Website >

Most corrupt files in Windows would not delete your Japanese My Documents. What would probably be gone would be ntldr, hal, various dlls and sys files but most of your .doc would remain intact.  If you can boot using the English Win XP Pro and presuming you have 2 different usernames 1 for the Japanese and another 1 for the XP Pro, then chances are that you can still access the Japanese My Documents. It may not be shown but it should be there under the Japanese username.

Assumng you have administrator privileges, Click on Start, Control Panel, Folder Options, View, tick: Show hidden files & folders, untick hide extensions for known file types, untick hide protected operating system files.

This should expose what were hidden before. Of course it is a different problem altogether if you have the 2 OSes installed on 2 different partitions.

Hope this be of some help. Post back how things turn out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Is there a sound driver for windows xp pro as the downloaded driver from asus main website only says xp and wont work Asus Terminator Barebones A7vT Sound max

Usually, you get the drivers for XP, Vista, etc. The XP version should be fine enough for you. If you are not able to get your audio even after installing the driver, then the issue could be something else. If you are able to see the speaker ICON on your task-bar, then this means that the sound is enabled.

It has windows 2000 in it and it will not load all the. can i uninstall it and put windows 98 or xp in?

You can put XP or Win98 on that machine but i certainly wouldn't install Win98. This is because you are going have a very difficult time locating 98 drivers for the hardware in the unit.
I would recommend XP because it has much more support and the drivers should be easy enough to get hold of.
If you do install XP it would also be a good idea to upgrade the system memory so XP runs smoothly.

Running digi 001 on windows 7

i got digi 001 running on windows 7...
i left my xp on hard disk while installing win 7. it kept xp on folder windows.old folder. in control panel i saw digi as multimedia adapter wich system couldn't recognice. hit "change settings" -> driver -> update driver
used my old windows to search for driver. it found "Dalvin.sys" driver for adapter. installed that. after that windows recogniced digi 001.
downloaded "digidesign asio 6.11" driver installer for win-xp and ran it.
and bingo - it works!
in every step windows was complaining and asking do i want to do this. just yeah'd everything. as i just had a clean install of win 7 i just thought whatta heck i can install everything again if it would not work, but it did.

so in a nut shell:
1: install Dalvin.sys in control panel for digi 001
2: run digidesign asio 6.11 driver installer for win-xp

for me it worked but i absolutely take no responsibility if you mess your system with this! at least reaper got a sound out of it. i haven't tried to record anything yet. but asio settings seemed to work as they used to do in xp.

Corrupt driver

One method you can use if you have another computer is you can take the hard drive out of the machine, and connect it to an external enclosure, Ive seen them as cheap as $10. After it is connected to another machine, you can download the driver file that is being reported as corrupt or missing to that computer, extract the file and copy it back to that location on the laptop's drive. This may be a little bit difficult if driver files like ntoskrnl or ntldr go missing, you have technically had your bootstrap loader go bad. There is the possibility that you can copy those files from any other machine running the same version of windows to replace the corrupt files. The only problem with this is that this can occasionally cause more problems than it can fix, because during the installation process these files get embedded with the information about the computer it was installed on, which can panic the registry or driver lists.

Asus T2-P

Try re installing the usb2 drivers from the motherboard drivers. Although they will not show up as as usb 2 in the device properties, use sisoft sandra (free download), as this will show them as high speed or usb2.
