I have missed the motherboard Cd for my A8V-VM SE with AMD processors so which are the drivers are to be loaded so as to detect the sound card and VGA

Download the drivers you need from Asus;
Realtek Audio Driver and VIA Onboard VGA Driver.
Once the site above loads you'll need to click on the drop down menu and click on you're operating system.

Thats it!
Good luck

Sir, i hv installed windows 7 ultimate.But sound device not working. My sytem configuration is as folows. Amd athelon 64 processor Asus A8V_VM motherboard sata hard disk

Good day sir, most likely you need to install the device driver located on the CD that came with your motherboard.
  1. Place your driver CD on your CD drive, Wait for the CD to autoplay.
  2. On the menu click or choose the device you want to install, that is your Audio (usually its high definition audio for the asus motherboard.
  3. Let the setup finish. your done, restart your PC.
Feel free to ask again, hope this helps.

No audio output devise is installed

Have you tried reinstalling motherboard drivers. Sound drivers should be part of motherboard drivers, so if you reinstall them everything should work fine. If not please post back here. I hope this helps, Yannick

I installed windows 7 os and my mother board drivers not support that mother board is asus p5rd1-vm. pentium 4 processor 512 ram

Come back on XP or Vista but XP works better.There is no driver for W7 yet.Motherboards manufacturers will provide drivers for W7 when Microsoft will announce that the system(W7) is ready to be sell....Windows 7 is still beta! If Microsoft still provide "UP DATE" for XP why you want to install other OS?
