3 ) If you have a problem with the PCI Bus , then do the following :
a ) Download & Install the chipset driver ( In CHIPSET SECTION )
b ) Download & Install the Creative Labs Application Driver
c ) Download & Install the HD Sigmatel Driver ( AUDIO )
4 ) Reboot PC
This worked for me & I suspect it will work for you. The short story is that PCI Driver is low level motherboard stuff , so installing chipset driver first, and then reinstalling the AUDIO drivers fixes it.
Hey guys, sorry(ish) for the bump..but i recently refortmatted my dimension 5150, always ran xp.
I'm having issues with my audio as well, but when i tried to install the chipset driver as mentioned above, im prompted to install Microsoft .NET Framework. Okay, sure. except during setup i get a message
"An error occurred during setup and a report was created wtih usefuly info blahblah..please tell microsoft...send report/dont send report."
so i send..but what does it matter, that's never helped me before.
Is there a way to install the driver without framework? is framework the driver itself =o
im pretty good with computers..minus hardware compatability. any help is appreciated.
