You have a custom variant (for Compaq) of the M2N68 family of motherboards.

Your audio is:
Integrated audio is not available if a sound card is installed.
•8 channel high-definition audio
•Audio CODEC: ALC888

Your ethernet is:
LAN: 10-Base-T
•Interface: Integrated into motherboard
•Technology: Realtek RTL8201N
•Data transfer speeds: up to 10/100 Mb/s
•Transmission standards: 10-Base-T Ethernet

The M2N68-LA motherboard is a Compaq variant. Details can be found at:

The Asus download page is at (for other M2N68 variants):
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguag...

I suggest you get your audio driver Realtek at:

And, your network driver from Realtek at:

Good luck!

Hi COLGeek, I really need your help on this one, I don't know what to do.
I've been trying for many days now to get this straight. I need to set up XP on the very same motherboard, but this one is a HP Pavillion a6023.sc. Also to that, I have added a Asus EAH3850 TOP 512MB GFX card.

I got everything to work now except the bloody integrated audio. I've been trying out every single audio driver there is, both newer and older Realtek drivers, but there is no sound. It won't detect any working cocec in the sound configuration settings.

Now, in the devices list, there are 5 codecs under Audio-, video- and gamingdevices. I think all of these are standard in XP, they are: Audio-CODEC, Media Controller, Video-CODEC, Older audiodrivers and older videodrivers. Right now, I only have one undetected device in the whole list (yellow questionmark in the beginning / Other Devices). The name of it is: Audiodevice on High Definition Audio-bus.

You just wrote that integrated media is not available if a soundcard is installed. In this case, the GFX card has a built in HDMI-sound engine, for getting the sound to the TV for example. Could it be that it identifies this function as a soundcard and shuts down the internal? Are ther no ways at all to bypass this and get the internal to work? In this case, do you think the unidentified device is the sounddevice on the GFX? In that case it's very strange, because when i download the drivers for this specific GFX directly from ASUS, it still shows as an unidentified device.

Many thanks in advance. / André

The info I posted was from Compaq's website. They are the source.

XP would identify the HDMI sound as an unknown audio or multimedia device. Go to ATI.com to download those drivers.

You may just need to set your default sound device in the Sound portion of your Control Panel. Just verify that the right default output device is selected.

Good luck!

Thanks for the fast answer, just what I need on this one :) . So let's assume that the unidentified device is the HDMI sound, then I still should be able to choose the built-in audio from the "Sound" section of the control panel, but there is absolutely nothing in there, it just won't find any sound device at all.

This means I'm stuck, maybe go for a cheap stand alone soundcard on PCI instead?

Not to insult, but are you sure the on-board audio is enabled in the BIOS? If so and it remains undetected/uninstalled, it may be defective. If that is the case, a sound card would do the trick for your basic audio needs.

If you get the HDMI sound (from the GPU) enabled and used an HDMI connection to a monitor capable of producing sound, you would have a solution there as well.
