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.
