No sound on A770M-A

I recently purchased an ECS A770M-A from 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 recently brought a ddr2 800 2 g , and my mother board only suports 667 , can i do something to get it to work ,because my mb does not accept it

This motherboard is very picky about ram, the reviews on newegg state that only sticks of ddr2 1gb 1.8 volt RAM at 667MHZ will work in this motherboard.
So it looks like the ram you purchased is incompatible.

The reviews on newegg are quite helpful. see

Ecs a770m-a gigabit lan support driver problems.

So I found this forum post, so it looks like this board behaves well with vista
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.
