Driver for foxconn motherboard

  nosure 20:37 30 Apr 2005

i have just formated my pc due to it being infested with spyware + viruses, but now i dont have any sound or modem, the pc has a foxconn motherboard but i am unsure what kind as i cant find any numbers on it, but on a chip it has SIS963Lua, and on another it has ITE IT8705f. i have a pentium 4 processer running at 3ghz with 512ram and a maxtor 40gig hdd. could someone please help as i cant play anything on it with out sound the sound is built into the board it self.
any help would be great thanks :)

ok ran that program and it said the following,
Main Circuit Board : board SiS-661
serial number : UL6N43409619
Bus clock: 200megahertz
Bios: Phoenix Technologies,LTD 6.00PG

They are 3 boards with the 963l chipset. All with the prefix 661.

Try these click here

All 3 seem to use the same zipped drivers.

Have the Sound and Modem been Disabled in the Bios by any chance?

When you start up the system press Delete/F2 or whatever it states to go into the Bios.

IIRC if you check Chipset Features or similar you will see if Sound and Modem have been disabled; if so Enable with the +/- key and then Save and Exit.

i went in to the bios but i couldnt find if the sound + modem were turned off i went in to the advanced chipset features but couldnt find any sign of them in there or anywhere else i think im doing something wrong.
i also went to the site that dan11 gave me and downloaded the drivers to disk but when i tried to put then on the pc it just kept saying access denied this is really getting on my nerves. any more ideas would be helpfull.

in your bios, it should be in integrated peripherals.

If you highlight (using your arrow keys) anything that says onboard devices, (or similar) press your enter key, and you should be able to set it to enabled.

Save your settings and exit.

hi joe
i went into integrated peripherials and found the following, onboard FDC controler : enabled.
onboard serial port : 3f8/IRQ4.
onboard parallel port : 378/IRQ
parallel port :spp
but no mention of sound or modem :)

have you tried installing the drivers from dan11's link.?

If not download this one and try installing it.

I may be wrong but i,m pretty sure, you need souncard drivers installed before your modem will work.
