No Sound from P5B-E mobo [Soundmax]?

  FCD 22:53 17 Mar 2007

I have now installed XP on my P5B-E ASUS mobo but have no sound. The ASUS support CD consistently refuses to install the Soundmax drivers often with the message "HDA Audio Bus Driver not found".

Similarly, when I check in WIndows I see a message "no sound device installed"

Searching the net I see there are many problems with installing Soundmax but having updated to XP SP2, I still cannot see a solution.

So very grateful for any advice on how to get the drivers to install.

Many thanks

Check the CD for the Motherboard it may need you to double click on the correct sound file setup or it may be zipped so that windows will not see it. It cannot look into a Zip file, you first have to unpack the zip

Thanks. I checked but there's no zip file. In fact you can see the installer running until I get the "HDA Audio Bus driver" error.

Grateful for any furthet help from anyone.
