    I have just bought a computer with a ASUS P5GDC-V Deluxe MOB with a P5 3.0. Hard drives are two Maxtor SATA drives configured in Intel's Matrix Raid 0+1 configuration with 1GB Ram.

    I can not get the integrated soundcard on the Intel 915G chipset to read the microphone. I have to nearly swallow the microphone and yell for any flicker on the meter to register. The MOB came with the C-Media 3D sound driver and software programs.

    Also, and most likely related is the fact that when I tried to install and configure a US Robotics internal FAX, Data, Voice modem that the computer would lock up.

    Can you help me understand what to is going on and how to fix this problem?

    Hi,

    Two things.

    First of all delete all sound card references in Device manager and reload your sound drivers. Most ASUS boards require that you load sound drivers last for best operation.

    The modem Issue:

    Give this a try:

    To to the modem manufacturer's website and download the latest and best drivers. (forget the disk that came with the modem)

    Go into Start, Control Panel, System, Harware, Device Manager and remove ALL references to a modem.

    Shut down and physically remove your modem and place it in PCI #3 (third slot down from the AGP port)

    Enter BIOS setup menu and make sure the PnP is set to DISABLED>

    Save and Exit

    Reboot and when it finds the modem force feed (Don't listen to the XP message that says the best drivers are loaded) the drivers you have downloaded.

    This should get you going.
