    Soundmax AD1888 and P4V800 DX mobo success!!


    I've been trawling the web for a solution to this problem too.

    Finally I got it to work!

    I ran 'sfc /scannow' (see here for explanation) from the start/run menu option. I had to insert my XP SP2 cd to recover missing dlls/files or whatever it checks for.

    Then I shut down and I removed a Soundblaster card I had installed temporarily and also cleared the cmos afterwards.

    WHen I rebooted I had to choose 'last known good config' because the boot up got stuck on hte windows logo.

    I was still not quite out of the woods yet - I have a bluetooth device installed and that was appearing as the default audio. Device manager showed a problematic media controller (at last SOundmax was showing up again!!!). I installed the drivers from the mobo disc and hey presto it was working again.

    Only took me 7 days to figure it out.:giddy:

    still not fixed

    hi all,
    i recently reinstalled my desktop and i had lost my motherboard cd (Intel d865glc_ , os-xp sp3) . So thought of installing drivers (chipset ,lan, audio ) by downloading from net and executinf on my comp. But had the same error as most of u had of "Driver not found .Reboot and try running setup again (Soundmax) " Then followed the instructions as posted by grendyll. But for my bad luck while following these steps , during the 9th step after selecting smwdmCH0.inf the windows warns as "the software is not digitally signed" I still continued further but at the end it says hardware installation failed codec error(10) please help me.
