    Unhappy GA-MA770T-UD3P(rev. 1.0) & GV-N220OC-1GI driver installation problem

    Hi All

    Have just bought new CPU, motherboard, ram, videocard, HDD and case. Formatted and loaded XPpro sp1. Then the motherboard drivers and then the videocard drivers, as usual. I still have an 'unknown device' under other devices in Device Manager. I cannot find it's drivers on either the motherboard or video card driver disk. Don't know what it is. Also the 4 Nvidia High Definition Audio devices have a yellow exclamation mark. The ordinary onboard sound at the back works, but the front sound won't work. There are no other cards installed, antivirus or software as yet. The system is working well otherwise.

    I presume that this 'unknown device' is required to get the high definition audio to load correctly.

    Does XPpro have to be upgraded to sp3 before loading these drivers? Or do I have to go to win7 to fix this?

    I have tried using the vga driver downloaded from gigabyte with the same result. Have even reformatted and reloaded windows and the drivers with the same result.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Did you download all the latest drivers direct from Gigabyte's site? If you did not, I suggest you do because the CD ones are always old.
    GA-MA770T-UD3P (rev. 1.0) - GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Driver

    As for your front panel sound, sounds like you maybe have the incorrect cables connected? Do you have the HD ones or AC'97 ones connected? They are pinned out differently, so you need to see which ones the board supports and use those. Usually HD and since you mentioned that it probably is what you need to connect instead of AC'97.

    I do suggest upgrading to SP3 if you plan to keep using XP, windows 7 is not a must at all.

    Realtek driver you can get directly here
    Realtek

    Nvidia
    Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

    And be sure you grab the latest Chipset drivers either from the above Gigabyte link or here
    Drivers & Support | GAME.AMD.COM

    Let me know if that helps, if not please show me images of device manager, properties on the problem device. And start to install/update the driver and in that window it should also tell you what it is, show a image of that as well if issues persist after the above drivers are loaded.

    Hi

    Thankyou for your reply. I tried using the drivers from the gigabyte and nvidia websites.
    Unfortunately, they made no difference.

    The front audio cable is HD and I've checked the connection on the board. Seeing it is HD audio
    that won't load correctly, I thought that was the cause of this problem.

    I have attached a screen print of device manager and the properties of these devices. Hope it
    works.

    Regards

    Windows update, advanced/optional also does not provide a update for this, or update online in the device manager properties? In regards to the Unknown device.

    The other is for sure nvidia, not sure why that is failing for you unless it requires the unknown device first?

    Do you have Azalia Codec set to Auto in the BIOS?

    Thanks for your reply. I will have to disconnect and swap systems over to access the internet to try to update the unknown device. Will do that now.

    Have just checked the bios for the azalia codec, haven't found any mention of it. Nothing appears to be wrong.

    Ya, see if you can get those to update online. If not run windows update and check the optional offered updates too.

    As for Azalia it is in the Integrated Peripherals section of your BIOS, and it is called Onboard Audio Function, this should be set to enabled or Auto if you are not using a sound card.

    Any luck with this yet? Sorry I can't be of more help, I haven't used a AMD Based board myself so not sure what could correct this.

    Maybe you could PM Artdrivers and see if he will come and try to help you, he is our AMD Guru around here.

    Here is his profile in case you want to PM him and see if he will come reply to this thread.

    You have already established you are installing the wrong drivers. Do you have a DVD drive? The motherboard disk that was sent to you requires a DVD drive. Just asking because I have seen this problem before. If you do have a DVD drive. Right click and delete all the exclamation marks or question marks in device manager. The sub folders too. Insert the motherboard DVD. Let it load click run run.exe Click the radial or circle next to "Click the "Install" button to install the drivers individually."
    Now would be a good time to connect the network wire if you have one. Now first Install the realtek network driver. If asked to reboot click ok. When it reboots allow windows to find other drivers and software. Check box to always perform this to allow windows to connect and search the internet for drivers. Let me know how that goes.

    Hi

    As suggested, I downloaded and installed the 3 driver files that windows update found.
    This caused explorer.exe to continually crash. Could not open anything in control panel
    due to this. Booted in safemode to uninstall. But windows wanted to run the 'add new
    hardware wizard' and surprisingly not only found but loaded the drivers for the HD audio
    correctly. So left those 3 files installed.

    Windows error reporting suggested that exlorer.exe was corrupt and that reloading
    windows or upgrading to sp2 may fix this problem. On rebooting after sp2 was downloaded
    and installed, windows ran the 'add new hardware wizard' and went online to search for
    the drivers for the unknown device. Found it and loaded them correctly. It was a 'High
    precision event timer' loaded under system devices in Device Manager. Clicking on it's
    properties shows that no drivers were installed for it.

    As for Azalia it was enabled. And yes it is a DVD drive. I had already tried loading the drivers
    individually, without success.

    Even though this is not the recommended way to load drivers, it fixed everything. System
    is working well, now running sp3.

    Thankyou both very much for all your help.

    Regards
