Question about Motherboards

1 Answer

Sound card. Hi, I have a PC with a PCI TV card, nothing fancy, entry level one. When I try to update the drivers for the device as I recently had to format my machine, an error banner appears on the screen and says that I must upgrade my plug and play driver, I really have no clue what is going on here, I removed the card to try and get the on-board sound to work so that I can atleast paly music through that, I check the motherboard, it is using a SIS chipset, I went onto their website and downloaded what they led me to beleive are the right drivers for my chipset, but they don't work, the setup file starts running until I get the above mentioned error message, then it just ends the app. Please can someone shed some light on the situation for me. Thanks

Hey there

You are suspected with an error due to firmware incompatibility.

As You said you are dealing with an error saying that to upgrade ur Plug n Play Driver.

The BIOS want to convey you that the plug n play device driver are you using does not meet their compatibility. Because system BIOS stores plug n play information and has a list of plug n play device in it. So while upgrading the driver BIOS could not find this product anyway.

To fix the same you need to upgrade your BIOS, So that you would have more recent list of H/W and firmware products for ur BIOS.

Download the BIOS file by visiting to ur motherboard site (download "*.ROM" file). This will surely solve ur problem.

No sound from ASUS P5VDC-MX

If everything is OK in Device Manager, check Audio in Sound and Audio Devices under Control Panel. The Sound playback should default to Device Manager device.

Plus, make Volume Controls are not muted.

Last, simply check with headphones.

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.

I have this problem about my HP vs 15 monitor..there is no sound coming out from it..and when i check the sound and audio device option in the control says "no audio device"..please...

Do you already check with device manager? if you dont know where to open device manager.
click here

If you are using original license operating system(window xp, window 7)
try this link

if not...using pirate, dont use FIX wizard that..

My alternative...
when you have check device manager, you will see software or driver for each hardware.
-there are many factor that derive from that sound problem.
1st. Driver is out of date.. try update software..
- find you sound adapter in device manager,right click and chose properties.
-in driver tab, chose update.

2nd. Driver have been deleted or damaged because of virus.
-you can try update.
- but it need more time
-if you using pci sound card, find your model name .using google.
-if you dont use pci sound card, then find name and model for your motherboard.
google the driver . sometime you can find more driver, make sure you download sound driver only . but if you want backup driver, donwload all the driver.

after downloading finish, install and restart..

It is working ?
rate me..

You may have tried this & I missed it.
For htis new cardto work, you need to DISABLE the on-montherbord video.
Go to BIOS Setup and you will find a spot where you can disable onboard video.
Now Mboard will recognize your new video card.
