Athlon 2.1 Gig Machine, I just formatted the hard drive and re-installed windows XP Home edition. I immediately went to the windowsupdate website and loaded ALL updates (including service pack 2 since this version was older than service pack 2).
After loading all the updates and installing a new SATA hard drive, a TV card, a firewire card and an internal DVD writer, everything works except the sound card.
The only sound the machine makes is when I move the mouse, even a fractional mouse move makes a sound that I can only describe as rapid clicks, almost like a buzzing. (quite annoying)
I have searched for and found a few drivers for this card it currently has version 18.104.22.168 (I am pretty sure this is the newest driver, not positive though)
In the properties under device manager it show the error I listed in the title and it says PCI BUS 0, device 17 function 5
When I tried the 'troubleshoot' button I got nowhere.
This soundcard is built into the motherboard which is a BIOSTAR M7VIQ
I am making a PVR / HTPC out of this, the sound card did work originally but I needed to format the drive and reload everything because of an unrelated issue(s).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
