Hi mshaker, from time to time when a driver does not install. (Reason unknown). You can work around windows & install the driver in another fashion. First enter you're bios. Open you're manual to page 24. You need to make sure you're AC'97 is set
to [Enable]. Save & exit the bios. The system will restart.
Let's make sure you're Gigabyte CD driver is the same as the driver listed on Gigabyte's web site. Click on this link:
Check the date online for the audio/sound driver. If the driver online is newer, create a folder & download the driver into that folder. Uncompress the driver file within the folder.
If the dates are the same than load the CD into you're cd-rom drive. Click the start button, slide up to & open control panel. Open the system icon. Click on the hardware tab than click the device manager button. Scroll down to Sound, audio and game controller. (Which should already be opened)? See the yellow ! explanation point? Right click on it once & slide up to & left click update driver. Hardware update wizard will open.
Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). Click the green check mark once & it will go away.
Than click the Browse button. Another window will open.
(Browse for either the folder on you're desktop or the CD).
Click the + sign next to My Computer. Scroll down to the Gigabyte CD. Click the + sign so the sub folders all open. (Your CD may have a driver folder). If so click the + plus sign to open the sub folder. Left click once on the Audio folder so it is high lighted than click the next button. Windows will search the entire audio folder & install the correct sound driver software. Restart the system. Check if you now have sound. If this fails to install the correct software there could be a problem with the audio chip built onto the board. You may have to buy a PCI sound card to get around this issue & give you sound.

Good Luck!

I want to install sound drive in my system motherbaord mercury PVM7


For installing the sound drive to your motherboard please insert the CD which you got for the motherboard. if you can run it in AUTO mode so that it installs on its own.

If cannot do in Auto mode then open the driver CD ,it will contain sound driver setup file so you can install by double clicking it.

Good Day!

Installing the audio driver is an easy process, after you have install the Operating System (windows xp, vista and etc.) the system will find the audio driver that is why you can't use or the sound still disable. In order for you to use the sound, you must install the AUDIO DRIVER, follow the instructions below;

1. insert your motherboard cd, it will autoplay

2. find and click AUDIO Driver, it will start installing and after seconds or a minute then your finish. The system will ask for a reboot/restart. The next time you log-in you will be able to use the sound already.

(if the cd will not autoplay, locate the cd/dvd-rom drive and open it, look for DRIVER folder to be specific AUDIO Driver, inside that folder you will find setup.exe --- double click it, and follow 2nd step)

I bought a foxconn 45CMX/GMX mothebord. i install xp and then install drivers including sound drivers. evrythin was fine. but after 2days my machine doesnt gave me sound. so i try evry thin and finally...

Driver conflict most likely but you would have to test your physical hardware setup which may be the cause also. Odds are the driver is conflicting but given zero details on info that would give anyone a clue to help you I would say be more detailed on driver and audio hardware, wiring testing and beyond that try a different audio driver. If Vista it should solve for you so I assume XP which you do not state OS. XP can be a pain but if the driver works at all then odds are the correct one but you either are installing something that screws up and conflicts with that driver, or possibly your mobo or sound card is the root cause.

Problem in sound drive

Rather than using the normal fashion to install you're audio driver software, show windows the way through device manager.
Right click once on My Computer & left click Properties. Click the hardware tab & click on the device manager button. Scroll down to & left click the plus + sign next to Sound, audio and game controller. Right click once on the yellow ! point & left click on update driver. Click No in the next window & click the next button. Click Install from a list or specific loacation than click the next button. In the next window click on the green check mark next to, Search removable media (this will remove the green check mark), than click the Browse button. Use the dropdown menu to open the folder where you downloaded the sound driver software. No need to click on the setup.exe. Just pick the correct driver folder for you're operating system. Than click Ok. When finished restart you're PC. Test you're sound.
You may have this link but I'll list it anyways.*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go%21
If this install should fail, double check you're bios setting. Make sure the audio is enabled. If everything is correct than you're intergrated sound chip may be defective. The only other option would be to add a PCI sound card.

Good Luck!

NO Sound - 865PE Neo2-PFS Platinum Edition

You need to install the correct version of the sound drivers from the MSI website under your motherboard type. Third party or from Realtek sound drivers won't make you sound chip works. If after installing sound drivers from MSI website still don't work then your on board sound chip colud be defective.
