    [h=2]hi there,[/h]
    i just installed a windows 7 home edition on my old pc which has this specs:
    P4 2800
    asus p4s800d-x motherboard socket 478.
    ATI X1950 pro video card
    3 gb of RAM

    everything went well during installation but the audio hardware didnt recognized (onboard)
    i went to asus web site and after muliple chooses i get to this page wich is relevant for me :
    http://support.asus.com/download.asp...lmFMz0YPEK37pl

    thing is that at the end of the chosing , the newer version of windows that i could chose from was winxp.
    you can see also that the audio driver i can download is for winxp
    SoundMAX Audio Driver version 5.12.01.3665 WHQL for Windows 98/ME/2K/XP.

    i tried to install also a realtek audio driver and of course the soundmax which didnt cause win 7 to find any audio hardware.

    any help here ....

    thanx

    It only shows for vista and lower so you could try to run it in compatibility mode.

    hi again .

    i know that this problem i having now may related to some other forum but since its connect to the previouse one i post it here ...

    so after i install the sound driver i got a sound but when i play a 720p x264 movies (with vlc player or mplayer classic) its flicker,
    BUT when i disable sundmax from device manager the movie play smooth but of course without sound ....

    any thoughts ? is there something i can do or this is a sign for an old pc that cant hadle 720p x264 files?
