    Hi i built my own comp on tuesday i used a "ASUS A8R-MVP crossfire ready" motherboard. I put in my graphics card etc and everything works fine apart from my "Creative SBS260 2.0 Speakers" i plugged the green lead into the green jack on my motherboard and i plugged in the power supply and turned on the speakers. Then when i used the disc that came with my motherboard to install the audio drivers it said the driver files arn't compatible with my computer hardware.
    (the motherboard has on board sound if you havnt already worked it out yourself)
    thanks

    Have you enabled onboard sound in the BIOS? As said get the latest drivers from the Asus website

    It is done in the BIOS, you need to go to a section (depending on your BIOS version) saying something along the lines of Intergrated devices and in there will probably be AC '97 Onboard Sound or something similar. I only say AC '97 cause its most common. Check for something sound like....

    Best of luck

    That's it.

    Did you read that readme.txt in with the sound card drivers?
    I have no idea if it's relevant or not.

    Due to an engineering error, the HD Audio bus driver that shipped in Server 2003 SP1 and Windows XP x64 Edition
    contains what is called ¡§time bomb¡¨ functionality that prevents the use of the binary after a certain date.
    That date was August 1st 2005 and users may find their audio device stop working after that date.

    If the following conditions are true, the computer Intel High Definition audio functionality unexpectedly
    quits working:¡E The computer is running either Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
    or Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition.

    ¡E The computer has an Intel High Definition audio device.
    CAUSE
    This problem occurs because of a problem in the Intel High Definition audio driver that
    is included with Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP Professional x64 Edition.

    The Download Center URLs will be as follows:
    WS03

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...06-15B3-4A65-8C52-746BEB24E86C&displaylang=en
    WS03 x64

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...06-50EE-4458-902F-F9FC59201B04&displaylang=en

    WinXP x64

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...F1-065C-41E8-A148-9D79BD9D24F9&displaylang=en

    The reason this happened has been addressed for future OS releases.

    dont take it all apart just yet dude,

    could still be something hidden in the bios you may have missed.

    we've all dont it before ;)

    Got that motherboard here, its called HD Audio that you want to enable in the BIOS, goto Advanced, Onboard Devices Configuration its in there, you could always find out from the manual as its in there to. :p

    If the drivers are not going in, then you could always goto the Device Manager, right clicking the Yellow ? next to the Audio bit, and selecting update driver, then just say have disk etc... and send it to where your file is. :)

    EDIT: Just read you have HD Audio enabled already, that is the onboard sound.

    Also what happens when you put the motherboard driver CD in and try installing the drivers for the onboard sound from there.

    If the onboard sound is enabled correctly, then the driver will show up on the motherboard CD, its called Soundmax summit, if its not enabled correctly then it will not show, the motherboard CD will only show what needs installing thats enabled.
