Question about Intel D845GVSR Motherboard

1 Answer

No sound card detected Win 98SE Windows Media Player unusable.

I'm not the original owner and have no manuals or tech experience.
The HP/Compaq support website lists 2 ISA, and 1 PCI/ISA slots.
The new HDD uses one of the slots and works (Maxtor 40GB).
The NIC uses one of the ISA slots to my Dell 2400 and works.(ICS)(data)
There is 1 empty slot.
There are three audio slots on the rear of the tower.
My guess according to the HP site is that there suppose to be an onboard sound card(but not detected) or it's burned out(?). The Bios only indicates that the sound is enabled. Was there ever a card without ports ? This is very confusing. I really don't want to look inside the chassis because it is packed tight.

Dear Sir or Madam When I want to play a music on my computer , I get this error: "Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound...

Yes there is something wrong! The sound card driver is corrupted!

YOu need to check on device manager again. Look for your drivers there.

If you do not see the EXACT NAME of your sound card, then the driver that is installed is a DEFAULT driver made by the os.

Ex: This is a sound card driver name listed in Device manager:

This is an example of a default sound card driver that will not work well on certain sounds or will not work at all:


Even thought you many not see a yellow question mark (which you should be checking for too just in case)on any of the listings for your hardware, chances are you are still using a default sound card driver due to a corruption to its original sound card driver.

So recheck your device manager and find out the exact name of your original sound card. If there is no match to your exact name of your sound card, then you need to REINSTALL your sound card driver again and you will immediatly see your sound card working again :)

If this does not work, you may have to change your sound card.

Hope this helps :)

Sound problem

Hi babupbt, just post the model No# (you can find it printed in white on the motherboard or get it from the compaq manual). Compaq list everything on white stickers through out the PC.
I'll find all the drivers you need. (What operating system are you planning to install)? XP home, XP Pro?
