Mike Hall - MVP said:There is a good chance that the integrated sound card is a goner if the
drivers from Asus do not work.
However, there is something else you can try..
Go to Control Panel > System > Hardware tab > Device manager button..
Scroll down the list of devices until you reach the sound section.
Now uninstall all of the sound section, and then reboot your computer. It
should detect that there is no sound card and drivers, and attempt to
install whatever it can find. If drivers are not found, run the drivers from
the Asus web page for W2k/XP. You may just get lucky.
If this fails too, buy yourself a PCI soundcard and install it. You will
have to go into BIOS and disable onboard sound even though it may not be
Ok I've uninstalled all of the sound programs possible (though for some odd
reason I couldn't uninstall: Audio Codecs, Legacy Audio Drivers, Media
Control, Standard Game Port and Video Codecs.) I did uninstall Unimodem
Half-Duplex Audio Device but for some odd reason when I rebooted the computer
it is automatically already installed back in again.
A couple of days ago I was looking around in the add/remove programs and I
found out that I have Service Pack 2 and 3 installed. Is that ok or can they
corrupt one another?
