  1. have a GA-8SIMLNF MOTHER BOARD and running win 2000 pro. I am having difficulties in installing audio driver.

    I downloaded the driver from the gigabite site, but unable to install

    PS: when i google the mobo, I saw this site and found interesting, I even found the link for the audio driver in this site ,which was not available in driverguide.com

    but the link was broken

    From what I could find your board seems to be "GA-8SIMLNF SiS651/692" board made for Packard Bell. So you should try Audio drivers from SiS.

    Check out this thread for other information regarding this.

    Can you download the drivers from the link I posted?
    Yes/no/maybe :confused:
    If so try those.
    Obviously you can just disable the onboard sound in the BIOS and plug in a PCI sound card and use that instead. But if you were not unhappy with the sound you had and the onboard solutions CPU utilisation in comparison to PCI devices then I would try the SiS drivers first.

    That means I can download but it doesn't install on windows 2000. It stuck in half way thru in installation. May be it doesn't like 2000
