I am upgrading my system to Windows 7 6-bit, and have an issue where the audio will not work, and I cannot run the "Power" service in Windows without my system becoming unresponsive (locked up). My motherboard is a FoxConn 945P7AA-8KS2 with onboard Realtek ALC 880 header for Intel Azalia (from http://www.foxconnchannel.com/ProductDetail.aspx?T=Moth...). I have tried to research the proper drivers to upgrade the audio, and have found the following, but they did not work:

I've tried installing Windows 7 32-bit, as well, but I still have the same problem.

Does anyone know of any other driver downloads for this device? Or am I not going to be able to update to Windows 7 and will have to stick with XP?

Sincerely,

Frustrated :heink:

Download chipset drivers for windows 7 FROM the foxconn website.
Windows 7 is not compatible with all old hardware, you can get by with forcing some to run but not all. You definitely cannot run 64bit OS installation on a 32bit HW machine. Stick with XP for the time being, there are no improvements in Win7, it does have higher memory requirements 1-2gb with all drivers loaded, just run your XP nice and clean.
