also i can't get into that 40 gig wd hdd if anyone knows how to access that harddrive, it suffered a pretty bad crash less than a year ago... on this mobo...
well thats a oem motherboard made by asus for HP.
the sound card is not the sis 7012 but its the ADI 1885
ADI is better know as soundmax
give this driver a go with that board.

if that hard drive crashed is there anything on it that you want to save ?
you should be able to access information on it by using the program don't panic i have here.

if my computer does not see the drive when connected check that your bios is still reading the firmware, if teh bios can't see the drive the
control board is dead and you won't be able to access the drive again.
neither of those worked, the motherboard is an hp not dell so no improvements in sound..... and the harddrive reads in bios but not in that other preogram
dam soundmax is always like this.
the spec of that board can be found here.

you can see under AC97 audio its listed as ADI 1885 so that dell driver should have got it up and running for you.
with sound cards does not matter that much where the driver comes from.

is that board still inside a HP machine ?
if so whats its model number.
the problem is that being a OEM board asus will not support it at all i will however try and find a close match at their site.

oh and before i go head long in to asus, you can also cheat with that motherboard.
it has a HP bios setup and as far as HP know its still one of their machine's
if you click here and select auto detect it should pick up on any missing drivers.

make sure you allow that program any access it needs, don't block it and shut down any thrid party firewall.
would also be a good idea to uninstall the sis 7012 driver.
nothing works !?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? im about to say f**k it an get a new computer
bloody asus, spent hours looking to try and find a match for that board.

right first things first did you load up the main sis 650 chipset drivers direct from sis ?
if not please download them from here and install them.

now the most basic ADI 1885 driver i can find is on the intel website, intel don't play with the basic driver sets, so if anything is going to get that working it should be this one.

again shut down any anti-virus and firewalls while you do the install's or they can block the inf files from installing.

i will continue trying to find a driver direct from asus as well but its like looking for a needle in a haystack.
