Hello Experts,
I have the following problem and I need help.
I have a computer with Windows Xp Sp3 Installed.
My Motherboard is MSI-7255.
My problem is with sound card It can't recognize the drivers more.
Few days ago I uninstalled  the sound drivers, until this, it was working fine.I took this computer with sound drivers allready installed. I don't have the mainboard CD.
Now when I download and install the drivers I get no result , no sound:(
Motherboard Link: http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=driver&maincat_no=1&prod_no=1082
I have tried also by Driveragent, I made an account there and made a webscan after that it seems that the drivers found by Driveragent is exacly the same and no result.
I can't install them with success, please help what I need to do?
Till now I unistalled all audio drivers did a clean install of drivers again , no sound:(
I have tried so far more than 20 Driver programs for audio. No result
First time I stuck so much to audio drivers and I am sure my card is working properly.
Because it was working until I do this shit unistallation.

i cannot find your mobo model on MSI; the one you linked to is : P4M890M-L/IL and that won't work for you
is your PC a brand ?  Dell ?   post the model then, or look for drivers on that site

another question :  "Few days ago I uninstalled  the sound drivers  "  WHY ??  i cannot think of a reason?  did you make a note of them?  can you point the driver wizard to them (they are still on your disk)


Hmm ,I use a hardware Diagnosis tool "Everest" and it tells under motherboard tab that  my motherboard model is  P4M890. And also I see another thing under motherboard ...>MSI-7255 this is not my motherboard model?


Arafa I need to install these drivers first and then after than I install the other one that downloaded from the MSI site?
Tell me exacly the order to try this.


Also these drivers says SP2. I need to have the Sp2 to work this?


I double click the .executable file and setup starts?
Or I need to do the manual install as the Readme File says Arafa?
Readme file that is located in the package you told me to download says.

    Embedded Studio.

could you please answer my questions?  if you run on, i don't know what works, or not
you need to install  Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition codec first and then install the sound driver
you need to do the manual install
