I have a P2-400 With Onboard Sound. The Sound card is a C-Media CMI8738 Audio Device. I have that installed but I still have no sound, AT ALL. I'm Running Win:Xp and in device manager it says that it is running fine. I can't find any way to "properly" install the MEDIA controller. It's like, i'm missing one more component for sound, and Hardware Wizard isn't detecting anything new. And if it does detect something the name will be MEDIA and it will not finish installing, it looks like it might start to install, but doesn't finish, i've tried using the win:xp drivers for the CMI8738, but it again looks like it begins to install, but then just stops, no luck!! Anybody experiencing similar problems, or have any solutions, if you are able to help me contact me by e-mail, and we can talk there, it would help allot!! Thanks, i'm getting very frusterated, and ready to snap. Also, i used to have a "beta-release" of win:xp and the sound worked fine, but now that i have the real version, it doesn't seem to work, no clue, help me out please!!
Thanks, Tim
