Cross - I've been away from the computer this afternoon but I just checked for "Sound Cards" at the online "Best Buy" site [figure there's probably one nearby anywhere, USA


Sound Cards price anywhere from $30 to $99

For myself and I think Dkmac and plenty of other guys on HCW don't blink twice about adding or swapping out PCI cards, Hard Drives, etc

One of the 'sound cards' is a USB sound card that also has 1GB of flash memory

I hadn't seen a USB sound card before but it may be a great solution in terms of convenient installation and that if you replaced your current computer you could hang on to a USB card


Most of the sound cards I'm seeing are 5.1 or 7.1 - I'm thinking these are for people who want to do some serious editing or tie in their computer to a serious Speaker system

If you want to go with the internal PCI card then pick one, save any software that comes with it, follow all the instructions exactly

Thank you,that sounds like a good idea to purchase a USB sound card.

I can only please one person per day.

The webpage with your motherboard driver downloads and manual is http://www.foxconnchannel.com/en-us/supp...loads.aspx (the manual -PDF file - is down near the bottom of the page). It shows 3 PCI slots, so if you have one open, you could buy a PCI card and install it. The USB sound card that frediii talked about might be a better deal, as you won't have to open the PC case to physically install the card, and you could reuse the USB soundcard on your next PC. The BIOS and other drivers for this MB are dated 2006.

If you do decide to add the USB or PCI soundcard, remember to disable the onboard soundcard in the BIOS first (hit the delete key immediately after turning the PC on) before you load the drivers for the 3rd party soundcard. When the BIOS screen shows on the monitor, arrow down to "Integrated Peripherals" and hit enter. On the Integrated Peripherals screen, arrow down to the "Audio Access Interface" and hit enter. Change the selection to PCI Bus, this will disable the onboard soundcard. Then hit F10 to save and exit the BIOS setup program. The PC will reboot and then you can load the drivers/software for the PCI or USB soundcard you purchased.

Everyone has been alot of help to me lately and I appreciate it, but I have one more problem to solve. I need to download a driver for a universal serial bus (usb) controller and video controller (vga) compatible. Any ideas?

If it's the on-board video chip/card, it's the second on the list here. If you have a 3rd party add-on video card, what's the brand name/model number of the video card? The USB driver should be part of the chipset 32Bit Driver listed at the bottom of the page. Download and install the driver.

Always reboot after installing a new driver.

The chipset 32bit at the bottom isn't working, I've tried it a couple of times. However the chip/card did work.....Thank you.

Glad the video driver worked. Did you try the chipset driver that's just above the bottom one on the list - SISIDE Driver? It's an older version, but it may work.
