While I do not know exactly what would cause your computer to display that code, I can safely assume that you are using a pci sound card if you are getting a pci error, and your sound is not working. In short, yes, the pci problem is almost definitely related to your sound problem.
Hi you should try the motherboard website for drivers. Usually drivers that come with Windows XP are generic.
Try going in to Device manager, Uninstall the driver and reinstalling the driver that you downloaded from motherboard vendor site.
You should first check device manager for any issues with Network drivers.
Start--> Run --> devmgmt.msc
This command will launch "Device manager" window.
If you see a Yellow exclamation mark in device manager for NIC, follow the following steps to identify the card that is installed on your computer.
Open Device Manager (Right-click My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager)
The hardware whose drivers are missing will appear as Unknown device, so it’s easier to locate the device.
Right click on the unknown device and click on Properties.
Under the Properties window click on Details tab and select Device Instance Id from the drop down box.
You should see a code similar to this PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27DC&SUBSYS_30868086&REV_01\4&1E46F438&0&40F0
The portion of the code highlighted in RED is the Vendor ID and the portion highlighted in GREEN is the Device ID. In this example: Vendor ID = 8086 Device ID = 27DC
Once you have obtained both the IDs, proceed to www.pcidatabase.com . There you can either search for the vendor from the vendor ID or directly get information about the device along with the vendor name by searching with the device ID.
After you find out the information about the device and the manufacturer of the device, you can visit the manufacturer’s website and download the corresponding device drivers.
- I guess you downgraded your system to windows xp, If that the case you have to check if the system has an internal modem .If so, please download the driver for that PCI modem.
- I have already checked the modem that was already install on your system(V.92 56Kbps* data/fax modem,)
- You have to download the windows xp driver for this modem. or download chipset driver for windows xp
Quite likely, drivers for the audio controller is missing/not installed.
You did not give any info on the Operating System you installed and the sound card in question; Onboard or PCI Sound Card. I am assuming you have Windows XP or 2000 and using the builtin/onboard sound controller.
If this is correct, you will need to download and install ADI Onboard Sound Driver (Windows 2000/XP) - http://ftp.us.dell.com/audio/R94481.EXE
It sounds like a software problem. Though you did the right thing by entering the bios & disabling the onboard sound. That should have been enough. Did you uninstall the old intergrated sound drivers before adding the 24bit card? Just about all the drivers & upgrades for your 4600 through Dell is Creative software & thats why your having a tough time. I would put everything back to how it was. Re-enable the intergrated sound & reboot! Run system restore & check that every thing is running right!! Look at this dell web site for the sound drivers you have at this link: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_P4_4600&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
If you must, install a upgrade for your intergrated sound. Just so you can uninstall it after a reboot. Re disable the sound in the bios. Do not install your new card yet. While back in windows device manager you should be missing a PCI device. Shut down install the new sound card. Hopefully windows will want the drivers & all runs fine. If still no it could be a bad card (i know what your thinking but it's possible). The only thing left is the regestry is using the wrong PCI device.
Check Device Manager.
Open System Properties. Click on the Hardware tab than click on Device Manager. Scroll through the listed icons. If you see a yellow ! or ? than there is a device that XP is barking about.
