Question about Intel SVM266A VIAP4M266A (SYNTAX SVM266A VIAP4M266A) Motherboard

1 Answer


I have a Syntax p4svm266a series, V1.0-my motherboard with a via ac'97 audio controller. I put a new install of widows xp pro sp2 on my computer. I have no sound. It says under sounds that there is no audio device. When you try to play anything it gives a error 10. I dont know what this means. I tried to check them in device manager and hardware wizard. It says drivers are installed and working. But, under device status it says this device cannot start (error 10). I thought maybe the controller was bad so I took a sound card from another computer and installed it. I get the same exact readings on it. I am lost and quite ignorant to all of this. Got any suggestions?

if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question or exclamation mark? ! or a red X Right click to install drivers if you dont have a motherboard disc you will have to download the drivers

Audio Problem

Intel Desktop Board D945GCNL HD Audio Controller 5605 Windows Vista(32/64)/XP(32/64)/2000
Installs the Realtek audio driver version 5605 for Intel® Desktop Boards.

IMPORTANT: Audio drivers may fail to install in Windows* XP 64-Bit Edition. Symptoms may include error messages, such as "Error in installation" or "Unknown error". Microsoft's Update for Windows XP x64 Edition (KB901105) fixes this issue. After installing this update, the audio drivers for Windows XP 64-Bit Edition will successfully install.
