Question about ASUS P4P800-MX Motherboard

1 Answer

Cannot install a sound card

Obtained Cmedia 8338 based PCI sound card.
Drivers appear to need some DOS knowledge, Which I dont have BUT main problem is;
Once the card is in and machine booted the PS/2 mouse freezes.

Every time.

Any advice appreciated

    Of course I did try both usb and port mice [ mouses?]
    As soon as the card is installed it locks the computer on boot, after reaching full windows load stage,expressing same as inoperative mouse, while the keyboard also won't work. Switch off, remove card and puter works fine, as normal.
    The lesson for me is that all PCI cards do not seem to be compatible with all PCs then? Does everyone know this or is it a rogue card?
    Got it on ebay for about fifteen bucks - postage paid and postage back makes it a pointless exercise returning it!
    Sorry I was a little churlish and selfish in my response to what was an obvious suggestion, the idea of these forums is to help one another and I am probably not the only dummy with potential to benefit from any intechange.
    Will buck up in the future - promise.

Gigabyte p41-es3g MB pci simple communications controller drivers missing


Do you have a modem that is no longer in use?

Some LAN cards have more than one device. It may be a bridge or something. I think that is noted on your question. Look for the manufactures driver.

"Don't fix it, if it ain't broken." If you can live with a non-impact warning.

simple communications controller is likely a modem, sound card, or network card. If your sound was not working, you would know, and similarly with your network. So try sound card drivers next.

I have installed all drivers of my asus p5mx se motherboard with intel pentium dual core 1.6.but when i play sound it does not play smoothly it seems that my pc is halted for a while


If all else is working fine except the sound it seems its got the wrong drivers installed or there is a fault with the onboard sound. All the latest drivers are on the Asus website but you have not said which operating system you are using so i cant give you a link to exactly what you need. You can get back to me if you need or have a look on the website yourself http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us if all else fails PCI sound cards are pretty cheap i just bought a 5.1 channel sound blaster card for $21 cheers from Scott and plz dont forget to vote

No sound from my PC


Sometimes you may install other drivers that you system may recognise but not identify with. ensure that that the drivers are correct and that you soung ouput device is plugged iinto the correct socket. Also make sure that your sound device is enable in the device manager in your control panel and that you system volume is on and up. If these dont work then your sound device could be damage, best option then is to install a pci sound card and your problems will be solved. let me know how you go. thanks
