PCI response time too long

On my earlier failed motherboard changed to Asus P5VDC-MX and installed Windows 2000 Pro SP4 with Mykerinos Audio Card and Adaptec SCSI controller card on PCI slots. I have Merging Pyramix audio software which keeps flashing
Host PCI response time too long (>50) for proper Mykerinos Audio Processing in real time
Have tried few changes in the bios settings without success. Incidentally onboard sound is also not working. All software from installation CD was installed, Please suggest some remedy.

Found this info on another site, and it should help you out:

"you should try to manually define the IRQ for the PCI Slot where your Merging Card is in. Then, when you´re running Win2k, select "ACPI PC" and not "Uniprocessor PC" in the Manager "Computer"-section. Also set the Bios to NonPnpOS.
Those settings keep Windows from putting too much shared IRQs on your one. But be aware to select one, not used by the system. These settings gave me much more stability and speed than in auto mode." "try different slots, on every MB with more than 3 PCI Slots there is a sharing with the AGP-Slot and between to of the PCIs.
Also play around with the PCI Latency Timer in Bios" I can't take credit for it, but seemed very helpful. This was taken from THIS site (forums on Merging Technologies) If my solution does not help, I hope something on there can! --------------------------------------------- As for Tiger_Prince, You can download the Audio driver for your motherboard from from Asus's download page, in the "Please Select the Product ", first choose Motherboards, then in the next drop down choose Socket775, and in the final drop down choose P5GD2 Deluxe, then click search. When the new page loads, click on audio, then download the driver for your version of Windows. Hope I covered everybody!

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.
