You just need to go to asrock and download the drivers. You will need the chipset driver as well as the sound driver. Install the chipset first then the sound. This link should take you to the download page for your motherboard. There will also be manuals and support utilities as well as other drivers. All worth downloading and saving to a handy cd.

desktop or laptop
restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell you if and what file has been corrupted or missing then you will know if its a hardware issue then select restart if the problem still persists f8 back into safe mode you might need to select your operating system to load into safe mode click start control panel administration tools computer management in the left panel events + to expand then system you will see all errors in right panel right click select properties this will tell you what has occurred and the time it occurred

you might use the system restore to restore your system to an earlier time click start all programs accessories system tools you should see your system restore option if it is a hardware issue the system restore might not work

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem

computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets if you need more help with this or if I have misunderstood the problem post a reply hope this helps you

the SATA connector is not supported on your main board. maybe your hard disk capacity is to big on your main board to read.

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer hope this helps don

yes your motherboard will support SATA dvd drive.

Once your powered on the CMOS battery is no longer an issue. If it isn't reading the IDE or SATA channels it could be because they are not set in the BIOS. Check your BIOS setting and double check your cable connections. You also need to make sure, for IDE devices, that one of the drives is set to Master and the other to Slave otherwise they confuse the board and cancel each other out.

The TWO blue long connectors on the board with clips at either end are the ram slots, this model uses DDR1 ram, make sure you align the ram module correctly in the slot

I think the problem is with your RAM installed, try to swap other memory on your computer or try your RAM to other PC to determine if its working.
