XP pro sp2
heres what i did first, i installed the hd audio drivers from the Motherboard CD. then restarted comp, but it detects new audio hardware and it can't find any drivers to update with...but didn't i just installed the drivers? then i went to the Gigabyte site and downloaded their latest audio drivers and tried to install, but when i try to it says "installion failure" or something like that...what's the problem?
and for the audio cables i just need to plug in the "HD audio" to the motherboard right? because i also see a bunch of "AZALIA" plugs?

lol @ sound card, that would be my last resort if i really can't get the onboard audio to work
would reformatting my comp and reinstalling xp help? according to that thread you posted before your last one, it says that he didn't update windows xp fully before installing the microsoft audio patch and drivers

Yep, from a clean install......

sorry..... no he didnt. But he had success when he re-installed. Might be worth trying...

First thou unistall that fix(if possible) - remove the audio device (in device manager) - and remove driver installation - reboot

install the fix - then drivers...

well try to uninstall all audio drivers then install what you get from realtek

I would of started a fresh install by now..... Having the audio drivers installed first hasnt helped.... (wait for updates before sorting audio)

Or disabled it lol....

got a quick question?
what are all those other plugs in my case? it has the "hd audio", the "realtek 97" and the "azalia", which the azalia have a bunch of other wires unlike the other 2 which only has 1 plug...
