Okay,

here is the history

Machine: Averatec 5500 with XP Home

What I did: Wiped hard drive and installed XP Pro.

reinstalled all drivers from averatec website EXCEPT for audio.

I tried to install the driver and this happened:




What I have done so far:

Called Averatec and they tried to tell me that there may not be drivers for XP Pro since their machines come with xp home.

The lady said that the audio / chipset has this info on it.

M760

967L

She believes it is SIS hardware.

Please help me install the right driver / codecs

Thanks,

Fidel

P.S. I have tried installing different drivers off the internet so I may need to manually "clean out" the wrong ones.....

Not alot to go on but there are a couple of things to try : I can try to e-mail you a driver to see if you have tried this particular one. You could also try looking at TGForumz and find the right forum to ask what you asked here. They have helped me in the past with a few irritating computer issues. Hope this can help

Have you checked Windows Update by chance? Once in a while they will have a useful driver for your hardware.

Did you enable onboard audio in the BIOS ?

It wouldn't have come up in Device Manager if it was disabled. He just needs the right driver.

You positive about that Troy ? Enabling it through the device manager and enabling it through BIOS are 2 differant things.

I think...Now you are making me second guess myself...damn.

From what I can remember,you can't enable or disable on board audio through the device manager.

hes saying that if its disabled in the bios, it WILL NOT be displayed in device manager.

he just doesn't have the driver loaded.

Cruze5: No, they are recovery Cd's so all the data is compressed.

I downloaded the driver from averatec.

I first ran setup.exe , upon restart I blue screened.

I recovered to a previous point, and tried just manually finding the driver and my screenshot is the result.

Averatec is implying that because I am using XP pro and not XP home, the drivers they have may not work

I think that's BS.

Thanks,

Fidel

Have you tried deleting it from device manager and rebooting? (Be sure to have driver files on hand if it asks for them....)
-----
I did not know that XP Home and XP Pro ever needed different drivers, except for some enterprise-level networking stuff (that relates to the network features Pro has that Home lacks).
