Glad to be on the forums, and I say a hearty hello to everyone!
I have aquired a second-hand motherboard which appears to be in good condition. Upon reinstalling windows I tried to install all the driver updates only to find that no matter what drivers I try and install, Windows fails to start the device.
Furthermore, when I try and install the drivers (found from the proper website & the windows drivers) for the VGA, LAN OR Sound they all install the drivers ok, but fail to start.
Now what could the problem be? This board appears to be functioning properly apart from this issue. I have replaced the RAM and CPU and I've reinstalled Windows twice. I'm beginning to think that Windows is not assigning the devices a proper IRQ, which is causing a conflict. Trouble it, what is it conflicting with??
Anyone have ANY ideas, cause I'm beginning to give up hope, and it is rather important if I can get this board running how it should, because I might just be able to build a half decent computer to last me a little longer!!
The board is a ECS GS7610 ULTRA. I have the latest BIOS updates installed. However, Windows is NOT up to date, I have installed service pack 3 downloaded from another computer.
Anyone have any Computery Wizardry, please?
Thanks in advance,
