:: this may be in the wrong place in the forum so move as necessary :: have an old computer I'v been putting back together after a rather disasterous CPU death... anyway - I got myself another mobo - A7N8x-dlx - which I have on another XP based machine and works fine. the problem I'm having is that I can't get the audio drivers to work at all...no little icon appears in the system tray despite me installing the drivers from the CD I have. just having no joy. I try to play MP3's but I get an error message saying audio hardware not found/recognised... I made it work with Win 98 but in ME I seem to be having a few problems. I went to the ftp site to try and get some things; anv_me.zip which I found as an audio driver but it didn't help. . . I'm utterly stumped as to what to do now as I feel I'v tried most things, so any help would be magic.
