I did not see a sound card driver on that page. I did see a link where you could order the recovery disk for your pc. This should have everything you need to get up and running.

Do you have the restore cd?

I suggest you download EVEREST as it will likely identify the audio and provide a link too.

well sadly i still have the same problem i was really hoping that would fix it guess i should start from the beginning...


i was having a lot of problems with spyware and other stuff like it so i decided to format my PC i downloaded all updated drivers and fully updated windows expecting everything to work fine (had done many many formats in the past with no problem)

my problem was that every time i tried to play a game it would lock up my whole system and i would have to hard boot after, firstly i thought it was my graphics card since the fan on it recently stopped working so i put in a different graphics card but the problem was still there a friend of mine said it might have been my memory so i changed that with brand new memory before i had 2x 256 DRR sticks i replaced that with a single 512 DRR stick still had the problem and finally he thought it might be the sound card drivers *cries*

this is where it gets weird after i changed the memory i re subbed my account for Asheron's call a 3D MMOPRG i have no problems with crashing while playing this game for hours at a time but as soon as i play Vietcong or heroes of might of magic 2 (this one just reboots my system) Arcanum also locks my system all lockups happen after 10-15 minutes of play


at first i thought it was hardware but if Asheron's Call works and every other game doesn't i am guessing its software but after a fresh format i cant see what it could be anymore

please let me know what information you need id screens shots of any kind files or a dxdiag

really appreciate the time your all taking to helping me

go into bios...
select the Exit tab, Load Setup Defaults, (optimized setup defaults)
select the Advanced tab,
Reset Configuration Data (Initialize the NVRAM)
Onboard Video Memory Size: 128

Exit Saving Changes

download memtest86 and let it run for a few hours to see if any ram errors occur.
