Hello Richard,

I would first check the capacitors on theboard around the processor. Older boards have a tendency to blow the caps. Check our web site at for what to look for. If you find cab caps you can replace them if you really want to keep running the board. If you find bad caps and have questions just email me.

How to bring my bios up to date


Go to the motherboard manufacturers website and look in the support/downloads section and search for your motherboard model. You should be able to find the latest bios update there and instructions how to do it.

Let me know if you still have a problem and send me the make/model number of your board.

Hi, If it is an on-board sound card make sure that it´s enabled in the BIOS, on the on-board devices tab. Another possibility is that maybe you need updated drivers for the card, in that case you should download the newest version (of the drivers) for your os.
