Audio Drivers, VIA Motherboard, AC97, Creative CT5880: Problems

By TheMountaineer

  1. I have a replacement comp whilst mine is been fixed and this new comp runs Windows 2000.

    It has a VIA motherboard and in the bios it says AC97 (I have enabled the AC97).

    When I opened the computer it also had a creative ct5880 chip.

    I try installing the drivers from VIA but it states AC97 is not enabled in the BIOS when it is...

    I have tried installing other drivers for ct5880 and AC97 and now I don't know what to do.

    Can someone please help... I think this is a common problem with this onboard sound...

    Thank you

    1. remove CT5880 card...
    2. enable ac97 in bios!!! :knock:
    while PC is restarting, press "delete" or "del" to enter bios,
    when find Onchip device menu and enable ac97 audio using "page up/down" keys..

    thats alll

    the ct5880 is not a card
    its a creative chip... and I have checked time and time again that AC97 is enabled...
