Other issues appeared with the Epox Mobo I had to buy something else. I wanted to use most if not all of my pci cards with the new board, purchased a board by PC Chips M848A V5.0, Socket 462 /ATX. Everything works fine, except when I reinstalled winxp all the programs I want to install XP says "not a valid win32 program". I just want to reinstall MS Office, Adobe Photoshop etc, I don't have any win32 programs. Can someone help me solve this problem? Thanks in advance.

Basically you have two choices for installation of video card: 1. To purchase small form factor PCIe card suitable for installation on 1U server chasis or 2. Purchase PCI express riser card and to install most full-sized PCI Express cards (Check this link for PCI Riser )
Mostly PCI-E now are good vga card, i have a tip for you... there's is a secret between a 512MB & 1GB PCI-E card. With this feature is required a good power supply, like for example I used Power Supply 550watts (original 500watts power supply). This power supply is different from 350watts and 500watts.. Here is a secret buy a 550 watts to boost PCI-E card both 512MB & 1GB. Secretly this performance are based on my own analysis using CPU booster freeware... I'm sure 100% more compatible & perfectly to your motherboard. Just try it at least you have idea where you want to grab PCI-E cards (any Model). Good luck!
make sure the sound card is enable in the bois, then try a bois update, from epox.com, restart you system press f2 or delete which ever gets you in to the bois, then chek under integrated pher or chipset for a anything that has to with onboard sound, should fix you problem, or take it to your nearest pc repair shop for free qoute
If AHCI is not enabled by the motherboard and chipset, SATA controllers
typically operate in "IDE emulation" mode which does not allow features
of devices to be accessed if the ATA/IDE standard does not support
them. Windows device drivers that are labeled as SATA are usually
running in IDE emulation mode unless they explicitly state that they
are AHCI. While the drivers included with Windows XP do not support AHCI, AHCI has been implemented by proprietary device drivers.Windows Vista and Linux with kernel version 2.6.19 onward have native support for AHCI.
