Hey,

Do you have the driver CD for your motherboard?
If not here's what you need to do;
Find out what mobo you have and then go to the website of the manufacturer and look at the specifications of the mobo and it should say what kind of on-board sound you have. Then you can download the sound drivers for it. If you need help to find out what kind of mobo you have post back here and I can help you.

Hi,

Ok so you're gona have to find out what kind of mobo is in there in order to get the on-board sound drivers. Finding out exactly what mobo is on there can be tricky sometimes but hopefully you shouldn't have any problems.

It'll probably help if you print this bit out;

1) Turn off the PC and unplug all of the cables from the back.

2) Find a bit of space to work in and then set the case down so that you can open it up.

3) Remove the screws so that you can open the case.

4) Now you should be looking the mobo with all of the other stuff conected to it.

5) What we want here is a code. The manufacturer usually prints a code somewhere on the mobo, this could look like this "XX-01234". It mightn't mean anything now but this is usually the code that we can use to identify the mobo by typing it into a search engine. This code could be anywhere on the mobo but it's usually around the PCI slots, it may be in between the slots and you mightn't be able to see it beacuse the cards could be hiding it.

6) If you can't see any code you may need to disconnect some wires or remove a couple of the cards in order to get a better view. Write down any codes you can see and post them back here.

7) Replace any wires and cards you took out before you put the case back together

Cool If there aren't any codes on the mobo we'll have to do it another way. We'll deal with that if we have to though.

If you need any help with this or you don't understand what you need to do just post back here and I'll answer any questions you have.

Hi Steve,

No problem. I'm here to help. By finding out what mobo you have we can find out what on-board sound chip is on the mobo. The last number you gave me is the one I needed, "Intel D845EBG2L". You need a driver for AC '97 audio I've looked around for you and I think I found the driver you need. Follow the link below and select your OS (Windows 2000 Pro) from the drop down menu and click "Go". A page should load with 8 downloads on it, you want to download on the 3rd one "Integrated Audio Driver". It's a pretty big file (18Mb) so it'll take a while to download unless you have broadband. Install it and that should fix your sound problems.

Hope this sorts out the problem. Let me know how you get on.
