If you didn't see the forum tip, it reads: Tip: If you are asking for help to troubleshoot a computer-related problem, please be sure to include all the necessary information (ie: operating system, model number, hardware, software, etc) that will help others identify your problem for a speedy resolution.
Notice how it asks for model numbers, hardware and such? Without this, there's not much going to happen with your post other than for members to ask for the details.
As to using Intel drivers, I did run into someone that tried that on a not made by Intel motherboard. That didn't work. What did work was to go to the maker's web site.
Best of luck,
So I bought a new computer and everything worked great. I thought that since it came with a lot of excess software I'd reformat, so I do. I install windows XP Pro Media Edition onto the computer as well as service pack 2. I try the driver cd for the motherboard and it doesn't work (as Intel says on their website).
So I download the drivers myself and get everything working but the sound card. It comes up as a "PCI Device" under device manager in the unknown devices categroy.
I got the drivers straight from Intel but they don't seam to work at all. I even tried manualy configuring this so called "PCI Device" with the drivers but no luck, under sound options everything is still greyed out.
