Question about ASUS P5V800-MX Motherboard

1 Answer

Sound drivers will not install

I formatted my pc, which has an ASUS P4P800-MX motherboard, and I have been able to install all the other drivers except for the SoundMax. When I try to download it from the internet (via the ASUS website and other driver websites), I click on the setup and then it says an error has occurred and it had to be closed. When I tried to download it from a disk that I have my drivers saved on, it says the driver cannot be found and to reboot my computer and run the setup again. I have tried both of these ways like a million times, and I have no idea what to do...

    Okay, I got the driver installed, doing something similar to what you suggested (the files from the ASUS website were damages so I had to repair them) but now there is still no sound. Ay Dios mio! This is crazy. Thanks for your response though.

Try downloading the drivers to your desktop and extract to a new folder,from the device manager update your driver and select install from a specific location. point to the folder and see if it works that way let me know how you get on

    if that was quite right it might be a case of getting the correct driver

    ok, do you still have the yellow explanation mark in the device manager? youll need to check in the contro panel also on sound properties to make sure the onboard is selected if there isnt a yellow explanation mark. check the 3rd tab to see if theres a sound device in there

Here's the Asus site for finding and downloading drivers and software:
You need to enter your product info: Procuck = motherboard Series = Socket 478 model = p4p800-mx
At this point a popup window will come up and ask you what operating system are you using, enter it from the list and continue (note that this list only goes up to windows xp). At this point you will be giving the list of all the drivers for your motherboard. search for the audio driver, download and install!!
Hope this helps!!

ASUS P4P800 MX Motherboard sound problem with vista. i want its driver compatiable with vista

Hi hswdnn,
Asus does not support Vista drivers for the P4P800-MX board. However you may be able to download SoundMAX Vist compatable drivers for your Asus board. Click on this link;
If this fails you can try any number of other sites listed in this google search;

Good luck hswdnn!
