Question Sound driver help!

Hi, I just got my old Asus T2-R system running off of a new install of XP pro sp3, and I have basically everything under control other than the sound drivers.
I cannot hear anything from the speaker. checked windows sounds, checked volume (lol) checked to make sure they were plugged into line-out.

I believe its the drivers that are incorrect. I don't know to much about onboard sound and etc and i've never really had problems with sound drivers so I dont know too much about them.

I tried installing realtek AC'97 but it crashes the computer right when it's about to finish installation. I figured that wasn't the best option and it probably wasnt the right driver. I went on the Asus website and it provided me with Soundmax AD1800 (i believe it's called) and once i extracted part 1 and 2 to a folder, i ran setup. the setup extracted more files but then said "Fatal : Driver not found. Please reboot your system!"

so i've been kind of stuck from there.

I dont know if this is enough info, but here:

idea Re: Sound driver help!

What driver(s) did you use and where did you get it?

You left out the important stuff.... computer brand and model, details, device hardware ID string, bios string, etc.?

Is the Intel Springdale-G i865G motherboard a retail board or OEM? Many motherboard makers do not offer support for OEM boards, only for retail boards.

Used in a desktop or laptop?

All I have to work with is a Intel Springdale-G i865G motherboard with a ADI AD1888 chipset. The type of computer you have will determine where you get the driver.... you should be visiting ONLY the manufacturers website of the company who made your computer/motherboard. Using other sources will produce the results you are currently experiencing.

If it's used in a desktop, you can try these drivers:


HP also used this board in building certain models. If this motherboard came installed in a HP computer then you need to visit the HP website. Or you can try the drivers listed in this previous identical thread:


In the future, when asking for help, please always include the computer brand and model and say whether it's a desktop or laptop computer. It would be to your advantage to scroll to the bottom of this page and read the Beginners Guide and FAQ's. What information is required (to get proper help) will be outlined in those articles.

There are numberous SEARCH buttons located near the top of each page or forum as well as a simple search wizard inside the HOME button.
