Driver Problems

BH2

Hi Guys,
Got another problem, I got PC built ok, thought I had done ok, installed
windows Xp SP 2, 3x Sata drives , Gigabyte PC Xpress 7600 graphics card, 2
gigs Ram.
Sitll have a few problems not with the computer, but with some drivers. Not
sure what they are, thought windowsXP would have installed them.
Anyway the problem drivers, come up with the detected new hardware and are
the following:
Mutimedia Controller
Other PCI Bridge device(could this be the onboard IEEE 1394 socket?)
SM Bus Controller
USB Device
USB Device

I have installed the Mobo Drivers, still can't get onto the internet ADSL,
will I have to contact my ISP, thought window would detect it. Also get a
long beep when the computer starts up

The only usb device I have connected is a Brother Printer, which is listed
in the device manager as ok

Your help appreciated
thanks and Regards
Bob H

Mutimedia Controller

This is usually a sound card or a TV tuner / video capture card. Best guess
is you installed a sound card that is conflicting with onboard sound chip
(sound card built into mainboard). If you don't have a separate sound card
and you want to use onboard sound, then that would be a symptom of mainboard
drivers not installed in the proper order. Which would fit with some of the
other stuff you list:
Other PCI Bridge device(could this be the onboard IEEE 1394 socket?)

This is probably your ethernet controller, if you are trying to use the
ethernet built into the mainboard. The ethernet driver needs to be
installed AFTER the mainboard chipset drivers are installed. This would
explain why you can't get ADSL to work, if you are using an external ADSL
modem connected to the mainboard by ethernet cable.
SM Bus Controller

I *think* this is a PCI bus controller. The driver for it should be among
the mainboard drivers, but it might not be included in the "chipset"
drivers.
USB Device

USB driver is installed after mainboard chipset drivers.

Try installing your drivers in this exact order:
1) DISABLE onboard audio in BIOS if you are not going to use it
2) DISABLE anything else in BIOS that you are not going to use. If unsure,
leave the BIOS setting at default setting. (usually enabled)
3) Install the CHIPSET drivers for your mainboard. Make sure to use the
latest ones downloaded from the web site of your mainboard manufacturer
4) Install the video card drivers, just to make the rest a little easier
4a) Try to find a PCI bus driver, if that is separate from the chipset
drivers. If so, install that next.
4b) I'd strongly suggest you install firewall software before continuing
(evil grin)
5) Install the USB, ethernet and sound card drivers (rebooting system after
each driver is installed). USB and ethernet drivers can be downloaded from
the web site of whoever manufactured your mainboard.
6) Don't forget to install directX eventually.

Another note on ADSL: Unless you are using a broadband sharing router with
ADSL login information stored in that (to maintain the ADSL Internet
connection for you), you will also need to install WinPOET or other PPPOE
software to connect your computer to the Internet using your ADSL modem.
Then you will need to fire up the PPPOE software and type your user name /
password into it to connect. If you need PPPOE software, your ISP should
have sent that to you. -Dave

I've found the O.Post a little confusing to understand..
Its likely all about the Motherboard & its drivers...But you haven't said
which motherboard
you have.
If you have a INTEL chipset board you might need to run Intel's Inf. update
utility..
The Boards web site should list this if its needed.

Check that Boards Makers Web site really carefully..making sure you don't
confuse your
board with some similar one ..the Numbers are often very similar.
The page where the drivers are may well be separate from the BIOS upgrade
page.

Have you put the name of your "Motherboard + problem" into Goggle ?

It sounds from your post that you might be expecting that ALL the drivers
you need
will be either in Windows or M.Boards CD or web site..
Not so.
You have to get drivers for things like the ADSL modem from its maker or the
firm / ISP that supplied it .
The USB should be OK with the supplied M.Board CD tho.

Hi,
Sorry my post was a little bit vague, the motherboard is a gigabyte
GA-M61P-S3 rev.1.0. Amd Socket AM2.
After I built the computer I just put in the Mobo disk and it scanned and
installed under gigabyte express the driver is decided I needed. I have a
d-link router modem, my old computer after I built it Epox( just ran each
driver first) I just connected it to the built in LAN socket and the modem
and it found the modem and connected to the ISP. OK as Mike suggested maybe
with this one I have not installed the drivers in the right order, can I
just go into the BIOS and tell it to restore factory settings, then
reinstall the drivers. I will also as suggested uninstal the Gigabyte PCI
Express graphics card. Advice is appreciated, as least I learn how do to do
things, which is great. I will also go to the website and download the
latest drivers
Thanks and Regards
Bob

My best advice is: take it slow, and do not panic.

Please: slow down, relax, and enjoy the process of discovery.

So how are you connecting the router to your PC? That last sentence
doesn't quite sound right. If you connect directly via LAN sockets then
there are no drivers to install. Your PC will not find new hardware.
If you connect via USB then that's a different scenario and Windows
should find new hardware and attempt to install drivers for it. Have
you checked to make sure your network interface is installed and working
properly by checking hardware devices, network adapters?

If that is working ok and you are connecting via LAN sockets to the
router then you're probably going to have to log onto it via IE or any
other browser. However, don't want to say too much now until you say
how you're connecting the router to the PC. :)

Hi,
thanks for the help. Ok, I have a d-link modem router, with 4 ports, my
wifes computer is connected to one of the ports, as was my old computers, I
have connected the new computer in the same fashion, from the rear panel the
RJ-45 LAN port(gigabyte ethernet) internet connection. The last Mobo I Had
an Epox, after I installed the software it just found the modem and
connected to the internet. So when I put the Mobo disk in it, gigabyte
express instal told me which drivers I needed to update from the disk but I
think I did them out of sequence if there is a sequence. gigabyte nVidia
GeForce 6100
Which is the best way to uninstal them and start again
thanks
Bob

Hmmm? Your Nvidia Graphics card is another separate issue, completely
unrelated to your ability to connect to the internet. However to
uninstall them your best bet is to do so in 'safe mode'. Do you know
how to get into safe mode?

Going back to your connecting to the net. What should happen is that
the router should automatically assign an IP for your computer (job
done). However, that's if your network interface is installed properly.
Is the RJ45 part of the motherboard? Have you checked in device manager
under network adapters to see if it is installed and working properly?
What do you have listed there?

Snip "..enjoy the process of discovery. " (shock ! n gasp!)
Is that what's called 'irony' or 'Sarcasm ??
