Hi there everyone.

Well i used to have a computer with this stats

Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 (build 2600)
750mhz
1024MB RAM
Nivida 64 MB RAM
100.02 Gigabytes Usable Hard Drive Capacity
Something like that

----------------------------------------

Now i changed the motherboard and then it wouldnt load my windows xp that was already installed before i had switched the motherboards.

So i just went ahead and reinstalled windows xp...

now i have this

----------------------------------------

1.80 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4
100.02 Gigabytes Usable Hard Drive Capacity
DVDRW IDE1004
PHILIPS DVD+-RW DVD8631
768 Megabytes Installed Memory

----------------------------------------

The thing is i got this motherboard out of another computer that was called IBM Netvista

System Model

IBM 229233U < i believe this is the support page for the computer

I have went there and seen and tried all 3 Audio drivers that they had none worked.

the ones i tried was

ADI SoundMAX audio driver (signed) for Windows 98SE, Me, 2000, and XP - D64Z26US - NetVista

ADI SoundMAX audio driver (signed) with SPX software for Windows 98SE, Me, 2000, and XP - DSIZ23US - NetVista

ADI SoundMAX audio driver for OS/2 - D70T09A - NetVista

This is what the Device Manager has currently

Hi Dragonbssj,

It's always hard to get those things working without knowning exactly what chips are on the mainboard. I tried to retrieve that in the net:
Provided your new mainboard is from a Netvista A22p (2292-33U), it should be equipped with an Intel 845 chipset, which has an integrated AC97 audio chip. That means all the drivers you tried should have been wrong, especially the one for the stone age IBM OS/2 operating system :cheesy:

That means also that your XP system could probably be messed up now. So reinstall it all from scratch and then try to install these drivers:

alc_sound_full.zip from
http://www.jetway.com.tw/evisn/download/driver/index.htm
for the Intel 845 chipset.

Since I'm not sure if I gathered the correct data on your mainboard, this may be all wrong of course, so maybe you wait for some more replies.

Hope that helps,
Ollie

Okay well all those sites which linked to the ZIP file didnt work.
or was way! to slow going at like 5kbps. (and yes i do have High Speed)

So i searched google with the file name. and got this one
http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=120000

It said that it installed and i have this AvRack Program now BUT! before all this i thought the audio on the board was just a joke. so i used a PCI card in the mean time untill i can get the motherboard sound working.

Aslo i found out that the drivers it was looking for was for a TV card i had put inside the computer when i built it.. So now it looks like this.

[IMG]http://i1.tinypic.com/20a9sg4.png[/IMG]

nothing seems to be appearing that there is no other audio devices...
i do have this in the Sound,video and game controllers for the PCI Sound Card. Creative SB Live! (WDM) which windows xp installed itself.

So im just wondering if this motherboard has onboard sound or not is it disable ? Because if so then i have went to the BIOS already and seen that option and it was already set to Enable.

So where on earth is this driver for this motherboard? what im i suppose to do ? the file you gave installed but i dont know if it did anything. do i have to uninstall the PCI sound card for it to appear?

Please Help.

Hi again Dragonbssj,

You are right, no download site works for these... :)

This turns out to be harder than I thought. I did some more research on that and found out:

The "Soundmax" drivers you downloaded in first place should have been right. Sorry. I guess IBM didn't use the integrated codec. Did you download this file?
d64z26us.exe
This should be the right one according to IBM. But getting onboard sound working is pretty tricky sometimes. I found another user which had also trouble to get the onboard audio working on an IBM board with these drivers.

Try downloading Everest Home:

http://www.cybertechhelp.com/download/file/everest-home-edition

If you run this, you can find out exactly what your sound chip (click "multimedia" --> "PCI/PnP audio") is and try to find a working driver for it. But chances are that this wouldn't help. :rolleyes:

My best suggestion is to leave the SB-Live PCI card in that computer. I have one of them in each of my PCs. Maybe the onboard sound isn't worth the hassle, since the SB-Live is superior in every aspect.

You
