Hi. I recently was on another forum, and I had a problem with my sound card. I downloaded Everest and gave the administrator my info and he said I needed the driver "SiS 7012"(Silicon Integrated Systems) for my sound card. I already knew that that driver was what I needed but then he helped me more by giving me links to where i can get the driver. So....I went to all of the links and tried them all but everytime I went to install the driver (setup), 10% through It a box comes up saying -536870397......(not sure if that means anything to you), then I press ok and another box comes up saying something like "Installation cannot continue. Setup will close...(not exact wording but close enough). I phoned a technician about my problem and he told me to do this:"rightclick on my computer and go to properties.Click the hardware tab and go to device manager.Click on the hardware that needs the driver(Multimedia Audio Controller) and click properties.Click the driver tab and click "update driver".Then click "include this directory in my search" and click browse. Then click the file where the driver is." So....I did this and it didnt work...then the ******* hung up. I'm not sure what to do and I really need help ASAP because its very urgent that my sound works for a upcoming co-worker party.Whats a party without a working computer with sound for funny videos and other crap,eh?..Anyways I could really use help and would give anything for a solution...I have tried so many people and forums and I hope this is my last stop. If anyone can help me I would even send them money..Thank you for taking the time to read this...PLEASE HELP...

This might seem like a silly question, however where did you download the sound driver from?

Did you download it from ecs's site? I have checked the ecs site for your board. It appears that there are two drivers listed under sound; a sis driver and an ac97 driver. Have you installed [or tried to install] both of them?

Here is a link to the driver page, sorry the hyperlink insert is not working.

BTW those apps that tell you what hardware is installed are good, however they do not replace pulling the side cover and taking a look with the markI mod0 eyeball. It might be a good idea to pull your cover and see what you really have installed.

As it's my number not his and I will know who is calling me I would think that is fair for my protection,don't you? As far as the number goes,once I give it to that person they can go on line an check it out to make sure it's ok,don't you think/
