PnP Sound chip

Posted on 2006-06-12
Last Modified: 2013-11-09
A new problem - new to me at any rate - newly installed XP on an ASUS ME-99 motherboard picks up the sound card as a PnP sound chip with the large yellow question mark.
Any help as to what driver to use?
I've tried Intel AC97, Windows and Soundblaster "generics"...

The motherboard is too old to for Asus to have a WinXP sound card driver:

I only see Win95 and WinNT drivers here:

it isn't an onboard card...
It seems to be a A381-F20 TJ-2 94V0 9936, FCC ID: LWHA381F20, Micro Express International

I do have everest - I'll try that. (there isn't a free version of everest anymore?)

The link I posted is a free version, but the main website no longer offers free versions anymore.  A victim of their own success, I guess.

I forgot that I'd already taken the card out. I won't have the box here anymore (I've rebuilt it for a friend) but I'll try to identify the card on another box with Everest.
Thanks for the tip - I don't have the right reflexes anymore!

I got the box back, found the maker's name on the FCC site and the driver on the driverguide site - all is well.

It's an Advance Logic ALS120

Thanks again
