ECS 915G-M Onboard audio and XP

I just put in a new hard drive and installed Windows XP MCE. I can't play my avi files and when I try, 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 device installed on your computer, it might be in use by another program, or it might not be functioning properly."

Do not accept audio driver

The drivers may not be accepted as you may are selecting the wrong operating system while installing the drivers.

e.g.. if you are installing drivers in windows XP then you have to select Win XP while installaing the drivers.
Same goes with Windows Vista.

And to download latest drivers you can visit

I installed the intel driver for the onboard sound and I still cant hear anything

Look in device manager. Under Sound, are there any yellow icons? No - next step, Yes - reinstall driver

Using XP

go to control panel

choose - sound and audio

click on the - audio tab

Is your sound card listed as the default sound playback?

Very rare, but check under services, Windows audio and check that it is running.

Problem with sata HDD probably?

check the bios settings first. if you can see your sata hdd and dvd rom drive then you can install it with no problem. or else try to replace the cables of the hdd if the hdd is not showing up in the bios.
also check that the hdd is set to master drive and dvd also set to master as they are on different connections.

Hard disk and ram size

Here's a quote from a site which sells that board.

The D915GAGL provides 4 DIMM sockets using 184-pin DDR with a total capacity of up to 4GB. You can install DDR PC3200/2700 memory modules.

I see yours isn't an AGL, but if you open up your case and see that there're four slots for ram, then it should have the same limit.

What this means is, each slot can handle a max of 1GB per stick. So 4 sticks is for GB's.

As for hard drive size, this is usually a limit of the OS and not really a problem since earlier windows days. You should be able to put a fairly large hard drive in there, just make sure the right cables are used. This board uses SATA cables, so your hard drive must be SATA not PATA.

Hope this helps.

I disabled the lan and when i enabled it again it won't work

Hi, well now you have windows registry confused. The PCI card may have come with software & you installed it. (See if its listed in add/remove programs & uninstall it), than go to this link & download the free software to clean your registry. (Keep the onboard lan disabled in the bios).
When the program finishes close the program & shut down the system. Than boot the system & enter the bios. Enable the onboard lan. Save & exit. With any luck windows will see your lan & ask for the software. You can use the CD to guide windows to the lad driver software or you can download it from ECS. The online lan may be a bit newer or may not be. Click here to go to ECS web site:
If you are running XP install through windows device manager.
Run into trouble, just let me know what the trouble is & we'll go from there.
Good luck!
