Ive just gotten my Athlon64 X2 4600, Asus A8N-SLI Premium Board, Sapphire 1900xtx,2Gb Corsair 3500(2-3-3-6) ram & X-fi Fatal1ty soundcards & WinXP64

My problem is that for some reasons, I can't get both NIC up and running. Nor does it seems like X-Fi drivers will install. Everytime I restart the computer it tryes to reinstall some Drivers(offcourse it doesnt seems to tell me what drivers it wishes to install, only pops up new device.. bla bla)

Drivers missing installed atm is;
- Other PCI Bridge Device
- SI pseudo Device SCSI Processor device
- Multimedia Audio Controller.

Third is probably X-Fi drivers(that are installed).

There is also a IRQ conflict with the X1900XTX, But i think that will fix itself when the drivers for the other stuff is installed.

But what drivers are here missing? its driving my nuts.

Btw, the soundcard(x-Fi) is in PCI slot #3.

Are you trying to install 64-bit drivers for all your stuff? If you are using Windows X64, 32-bit drivers will not work. If there are no available 64-bit drivers that piece of hardware will not work in X64 unless MS wrote a generic driver.

I go for x64 drivers all over.
I am uncertain thou on what Nvidia drivers;
nForce4 AMD Edition - Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
or
nForce4 AMDIntel X16 - Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
or
nForce 430410 - Windows XP Professional x64

They all seems to be Nforce 4.

The sounddrivers seemed to be fixed by the latest drivers from their site.
Why on earth do they sell soundcard with 6 month old drivers, when new are released 3 months ago or such.

GenRAbbit:

The drivers you need are these:

nForce4 AMD Edition - Windows XP Professional x64 Edition

With regards to ASUS boards, the nForce4 SLIx16 is for the A8N32-SLI Deluxe board and the nForce 410/430 is for the A8N VM and A8N VM CSM boards.

Also, the drivers for the SI Pseudo Processor device can be obtained via Windows Update. This is the 2nd part of the drivers for the Silicon Image SATA-RAID controller.

Thanks for all the help. It fixed near all the problems.
at the moment there are two driver trouble left;

Under other Devices, there are two Unknown devices;

Device Instance Id says
Unit #1 - ACPIATK01101010110
Unit #2 - DISPLAYNTATIVR015&9B7E4CD&0&80000008&01&00

The second there seems like ATI drivers, but Sapphire 6.4 is installed.

Try using this: (ATI Referene Driver) see if it goes away:

Using the reference drivers made no difference.
Now a new problem has arrived.
After another reinstall from fresh, I just cant get any sound. and I can't figure out why all of a sudden, it doesnt work. The cables are all on the same place, and all drivers are ok, except these two unknown.

Strange. :?

Did you remember to disable the onboard sound ?

Try going into the device manager and deleting all your sound stuff, restart machine, let it "discover" everything, and then proceed from there to install what needs to be installed.

THIS IS THE CURRENT MAJOR PROBLEM WITH 64-BIT

There aren't 64-bit drivers out yet, odd considering more and more people are moving to 64-bit systems.

This is going to suck but you may have to scale back to WinXP 32 so everything will work. :(

Disabling the onboard Soundcard(AC'97) was the first I did.
April 23, 2006 10:03:12 PM

All drivers I'm using is said to be for WindowsXP 64bit edition.
But back to this;
Unit #1 - ACPI/ATK0110/1010110 thingy. What is actually ACPI? Something to do with hibernation?

Update; Got one of the "unknown drivers" problem away. it missed the WDM drivers. Those are not a part of the main 6.3/6.4 packages it seems.

Now I just need to get the sound back & last "unknown device" resolved, that acpi thingy.
April 23, 2006 10:22:32 PM

ACPI is the power management system, I think. It controls like what power state the computer is in, like using full lower, low-power mode, etc. Not 100% sure, but something with power...

Seems to me, that if you install windows 32 drivers for that card, it should work, no ? Isn't that a 32bit sound card ?.

Did you try going to windows update ?
April 23, 2006 11:12:26 PM

Tried CD, Tried Internet. All WindowsXP64 patches are added.

Update: unplugged all cables and set them all up again. Sound is back. The cabling was to blame. And me for being so sure the error was not there. 8O

Sent question to Asus what they have to say about the unknown driver.

After 5 months of wrestling with X64 I gave up and put XP Pro back on my machine. It's too much trouble. I'd wait for Vista X64. That should have most drivers in box. Unfortunately, Core is 32bit so MS still needs 32bit Vista.

Downloaded the "ASUS Ai Booster Utility V2.00.68 for Windows 2000/XP/2003 and Windows 64bit XP/2003." from the Asus homesite and installed. Now the last error seems to have disappeared. Great. :D 

Thanks for the help all. :)
