Microsoft has yet to offer an OS that installs latest BIOS, sets the BIOS, finds and installs the latest drivers for us.
I didn't read if you've finished the XP install.
Hi. I have Windows XP in my computer, and after upgrading my computer with a new motherboard and processor (AMD Athlon XP 2000+), I did an repair install, as my Windows XP won't boot sucessfully.
After the repair install, everything was fine, except there is no Sound Events in the Sounds and Audio Devices. In the Sounds tab there, I can see that the Sound Scheme is set to Windows Default Scheme, but the list box under Program Events is empty. Prior to this repair install, I will get sounds during startup, shut down and also errors, but now, I get nothing at all.
Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!
Further info: Before the motherboard upgrade, I was using Creative Vibra128 sound card. Now I am using the built in sound card of the Asus motherboard (SoundMax). Is it wise to use the built in sound card instead of the Creative Vibra128 sound card, assuming that I don't mind wasting a PCI slot for it?
