I recently had my PC upgraded and a new hard drive installed, now my speakers don't work. I have been told that I need to update the drivers for my motherboard but am struggling to find what I need. The motherboard is ECS M848A Rev:2.1, I can find information on the mother board when I put in the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers information which is SIS PCI IDE controller in google but can not find the respective downloads does anyone have any ideas that may help please.

Many thanks

    The motherboard is ECS M848A Rev:2.1 also I have been told that the speakers do not require any downloads if the drivers are there they will just work.

  • Lila B Apr 26, 2008

    That website is the closest I have got to what I need thanks for that, however when I click to download I get this error (HTTP 400 Bad Request) means that Internet Explorer was able to connect to the web server, but the webpage could not be found because of a problem with the address.

    For more information about HTTP errors, see Help.

    That happens on all of them, think it's definately along the right lines though, do you know if there are any other sites?

    Thanks Again it was helpful

  • Can you find the manufacturer name for your audio? if yes then goto the manufacturer's site and see any link like support/downloads..etc. And make a downlaod for your model.
  • Other wise goto your motherboard manufacturer's site, see specification for your model and try to findout the manufacturer's names for audio embeded on your motherboard. The audio driver for your might be avail at the motherboard manufacturer's site.
If still have problem just Ask me....

My speakers won't work and they used to work on my computer. i just recently had my computer wiped clean and they are pluged in right but they still won't work.

It sounds like your sound card drivers were not installed, When you say you wiped it clean did you reinstall all the drivers?

Longer Boot time after upgrading the Hard drive


first let's determine if the upgrade cause the boot speed.

Disconnect your NEW HDD and/or memory, one by one and see if you get back your fast boot. Then try with your NEW components only !

If you find it works better with new components only, then first connect your OLD HDD only and try.

If you connect both HDDs on one cable, check Jumper settings for both HDDs (Master/Slave).

Also HDD capacity and type is automatically detected by the BIOS and there is no need to put/change those settings manually.

I believe you new RAM is DDR type, too!
As written in the manual for the board, your motherboard has two pairs of memory slots, and you can use one or two modules of DDR memory, OR one or two modules of SDRAM memory, but you can NOT put BOTH DDR and SDRAM memory modules.

Wish to install new hard drive in my Dell Dimension 9150

The BIOS can sometimes be a limiting factor when upgrading to a larger drive so I would check if you have a flash BIOS that can be upgraded to accommodate more memory or larger drives. The utility used for upgrading would have to come from Dell's website. 
To characterize your system in detail, I recommend using Belarc Advisor:

New hard drive not reconized, motherboard drivers

I had this problem on a computer recently. This particular motherboard may be needing the driver on the Windows XP SP2 disk. Your motherboard may have been made to use Microsoft SATA drivers. Othewise, there would have been a driver disk that came with the motherboard to let it see that SATA hard drive.
If it's a new hard drive, you have to reinstall the O/S so use a disk new enough to have SP2 included.
