You are using the original mother board so when you are installing the cd, instead of autorun it is giving the message processed timed out. Now do one thing go into the cd through explorer then go into each directory of the drivers you want to install (eg. for sound go to sound directory and so on.... ) and I know that your all the problems will be solved. 100 % guaranteed

    In your cd there is a directory by name SOFTWARE and in that by the name DRIVERS an in that you will get AUDIO, USB2.0, VIDEO, from that you install the softwares which should work for you.

Show to install sound device driver in windows xp ?

  • 1 Insert your driver disk into the CD/DVD ROM drive. The disk should automatically boot. Then follow the on-screen instructions. This usually entails clicking on "Install" or "Install Sound Driver."
  • 2 Download the sound driver specific to your card and Windows XP. Driver websites include Drivers Kit, XP-Drivers and Driver XP. Locate the make and model of your card. Click on the manufacturer and then select the "Download" link.

  • Manual Installation
  • 1 Click on the "Start" menu. Select "Control Panel," then scroll to "Add Hardware" and click to open. Sometimes, the automatic installation does not work properly. You will then need to install the sound drivers manually.
  • 2 Read and use the "Add Hardware Wizard." Click the "Next" tab. Windows XP will scan your computer for components.
  • 3 Scroll down the list to "Audio Drivers" or "Sound Drivers." Then click "Next." Select the "Finish" tab. Another window will appear.
  • 4 Select the "No, Not This Time" option on the "Hardware Update Wizard." Click "Next." Choose the "Install from a List or Specific Location" button. Then click the "Next" tab again.
  • 5 Place the sound driver disk in the CD/DVD ROM. Point the "Search Option" to your CD/DVD ROM or download folder. Click the "Include This Location to Search" box. Type in the path to your download folder or select the "Browse" option. Search through the computer to choose your download application. Click "Next."
  • 6 Wait until the file installs. This takes approximately two to three minutes. Turn up your speakers and reboot your computer

    Can't install audio driver


    Please try several things:
    1. Try to delete your device from device manager if it exists there: right click on "My Computer" -> Manage -> device manager. Then - right click -> Scan for hardware changes, insert media with your driver software and/or let windows automatically search for driver.
    2. Try to reboot in Save mode (reboot, press F8 until booting mode selection appears and choose save mode) and install driver in save mode.
    3. If none of above helps - try to update your Windows XP and then try to install driver.
    4. Try to change audio adapter physical slot - open your PC and just insert it to other PCI slot (also - de-dust your slots before :) ).
    5. Try to unpack driver and manually select it during windows driver installation process (choose not to connect to internet when wizard asks -> Install from a specific location -> Don't search I will choose the driver to install -> Have disk -> browse -> select .inf file and click ok).

    Hope this will help. Good luck!

    We install windows xp prodesional on this motherboard, but it shows absence of audio driver. what is the reason?

    If you got new motherboard you should have got new driver of driver which is the need of your motherboard.
    Install your driver inside the CD-ROM or DVD-RW to run your disc on computer.
    Add your driver by following the instructions of the installation process.
    If you have not the same driver then find it by right clicking on the my computer>device manager
    And then find your audio driver.

    I bought lenovo G550 last week. It came with Windows Vista. I want to install Windows XP on it. I have found that lenovo has driver for windows XP so that will make my life easy :-) But when I try to...

    you are most likely getting a BSOD with a stop error code of 0x0000007B which is caused by the Windows XP CD that you are using doesn't have the SATA Hard Drive controller driver needed to recognize and utilize the hard drive. If Lenovo has XP drivers for this model then they should have a SATA driver (roughly 394k) that will need to be loaded FROM A FLOPPY DISKETTE during the boot to XP. (XP Requires the driver to either be slipstreamed into the CD or loaded from a floppy diskette. Trying to load the controller driver USB or a different CD will not work)

    Installation problems SamSung ML 2510 printer with Windows XP

    Why no updates? No windows validation? That could be your problem if that's the case.
    If not, I suggest going to Windows update and at least installing all critical updates, if not SP3 as well, and try again

    Acer laptop aspire 4710z config my notebook have problem

    There could be an issue with the user accounts logins. This could be corruption in the OS when you installed it or a clashing driver . I would recommend you reinstall the Operating System with the Disks and before you start installing the drivers try to shut down and see if it shuts down properly . If it does then you know the Operating system and hardware is all fine and can continue installing one driver at a time and shutdown and restarting, continue doing this until you see which driver is causing a confict with your system. I have had a problem similar to this but it was some windows updates pack that I had done one time and had to reinstall windows too and do one by one. Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution.
