No sound on A770M-A

I recently purchased an ECS A770M-A from www.newegg.com. When I built my computer and installed Windows XP, I started installing the drivers that came with my motherboard. When the sound driver was installing "Error 0001" popped up and said "Installation Failed". How can I fix the problem?

    Thank you very much. I downloaded the sound driver again from the website and everything worked out fine.

    I reinstalled the driver and still doesn't work. I have Windows XP with SP3, have tried reseting the CMOS with the jumper setting and downloading and installing the driver from the website, nothing works. Help please.

Hi Lyubomir, there are a few things I'd like you to check. It's always suggested to clear the cmos/bios after purchasing a new board. The Mfg, make changes in the bios & they do not clear the bios when they finish. So please reset your cmos/bios jumper pg. 9, in your manual. Boot system & enter bios. Go over your settings & change as needed. When you come to Plug & Play OS choose No. This allows the bios to place IRQ's instead of windows. Also make sure your Onboard AUDIO Function is set to, (Enabled). When fiished save & exit bios. Double check pg. 43 for information spec's for the HD audio driver.
Try installing sound software again. If it still fails or barks the same error message try installing through device manager & point windows to the correct driver folder & OS located on your ESC driver CD. If it still fails. Run windows update untill there are no updates left for software or hardware.

I need windows 7 drivers for my ECS C51PVGM-M mother board


All drivers for the motherboard should be installed by default when installing windows 7, except the sound card. Realtek Sound card driver can be installed from here: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=24&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false

I have intel '945 GCT-M2' motherboard and also have motherboard auto installation support CD.Recently I had to reinstall Windows XP Profesional. The windows is working all right but audio is not working....


It looks like the 945GCT-M2 is manufactured by ECS. This page should have the correct audio driver download:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=810&CategoryID=1&DetailName=Driver&MenuID=1&LanID=0

Note that ECS does manufacture variants of their boards for systems "manufacturers" (e.g., Acer), with different colored ports/slots, or slightly different layouts. In my experience, however, the chipsets and drivers work fine, even if the board doesn't look exactly the retail version in the picture.

I need to up grade my windows 2000 to windows xp


First you need to make sure that your computer meets the following specifications:
- 300 MHz (or higher processor)
- Intel Pentium/Celeron or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron compatible processor.
- 128 MB of RAM (or higher)
- 1.5 Gigabytes of available hard disk space
- Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher resolution video adapter and monitor.

I am sure that your computer likely meets all of these requirements, but I posted them to save you the grief if by chance it does not meet one of the above!

In a moment I will post a link to a website where you can purchase an upgrade to Microsoft Windows XP home edition (Service Pack 2).

Once you have the software, start up windows 2000 and place the disk into the CDROM drive. You should be given an option to upgrade to XP. (make sure you start the disk while you are on the Windows 2000 desktop with all programs closed). After XP is installed if your computer does not have an Antivirus program installed, I strongly recommend either installing Norton Antivirus or AVG. AVG is free and can be downloaded from http://www.avg.com/. Then make sure that your windows firewall is turned on. (It should be automatically) After this go to Microsoft.com and download service pack 3 and any additional updates needed.

The upgrade version of Windows XP home with service pack 2 can be purchased from newegg.com by clicking on this link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16837116194.

I hope that this information has been helpful to you. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Ecs a770m-a gigabit lan support driver problems.


So I found this forum post, so it looks like this board behaves well with vista http://forums.amd.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=319&threadid=92122&enterthread=y
I've had some problems with vista when I tried to install motherboard drivers onto vista without using the utility, so I think your best bet is to download the utility from ECS, burn it onto a cd and then install your drivers from there. There's something about that that always works... Also have you looked into updated your BIOS? This may be an issue with an old BIOS revision.
Keep me posted.
