AC97 Audio Driver for A7V333 Motherboard



ive just tried installing this driver and it says :

"VIA AC97 audio chipset is not enabled on this system ! please enable it first on the bios then run this setup again."

ive looked in the bios but i can`t find it anywhere??


you need to enable it by jumpering pins 1 and 2 on the Audio_EN pins. Enabled is the default position.

This jumber is on the very bottom of the board, below the last PCI connector.

or bios

could be in the bios also.... most boards are set ON by default on the jumper pins when they include sound no?

check the bios settings also to be sure

xp I finally did its the v5.10.4030

Trying to rememeber where I found them I searched for days I will get back to you here when I do. ok here I am back


I used the previous version of this file and it worked great I was having all kinds of trouble like when playing games with a static like noise all the time but not afte I used the files from here ...

I am going to try the newer version and see if they are as good or better .......... will edit again after

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
