Ok this is a new one for me, so bare with me. My computer was working fine this morning, however I had some other issues and I re-installed windows, deleting my harddrives through frustration with buggy files and things. So anyhow, I instal my mobo drivers and my gfx cad drivers, alls fine. Then I go to install soundMax but it says: " Drivers not present, reboot and try again". I go to control pannel to check out my sound devices.. and it says No sound device. I go to device manager and my sounds codecs are there and says there is nothing wrong with them. However when i look at the properties of legacy Audio drivers its empty, no codecs there at all. I read a few forums and dl'd and installed AC97 driver from realtek. nothing happens, So i read some more, and then i try going into my BIOS and making AC97 sound "Enabled" but then when wins reboots I get that dredded blue screen appear and system reboots itself (does this over and over till i disable AC97 in BIOS). Im using Windows XP. I have a foxconn winfast 760GTK8MC-S mobo (trying to use onboard sound). Now obviously I have deleted the drivers, But howcome when I dl audio drivers from foxconn webby and realtek I still can not resolve this problem?
Sorry its long winded, But i miss my sound regards Aaron
