View Full Version : No audio sound...?Correct drivers?

14-11-2007, 04:22 AM
I formatted my friend's computer and reinstalled windows xp.It didn't came with audio drviers on a cd

So i found out his motherboard model was MSI-6734 KM4M-L/L MS-7061 KM4m-V
Motherboard chipset VIA VT8378 KM400/KN400 + VT8237

In the device manager there was a yellow question indicating that the computer had no audio

So i downloaded this http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/SOUND-CARD/OTHER-SOUNDCARDS/Seanix-MS-6734-KM400-Audio-Driver.shtml

Driver seems right?The yellow question mark was gone and the volume icon appeared which wasn't appearing but there's still no sound

Any ideas?

Always go to the manufacturer's site. Not some wannabe site.

For drivers etc. Anything that needs to be installed, for a computer.

Uninstall those drivers you installed.

This maybe the mobo and drivers (http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=driver&maincat_no=1&prod_no=558)

You'll ned the 4-1 drivers, the LAN, the sound, and the VGA drivers, if he's using the onboard videocard.

Dunno where you got that from, but it's one or the other, not both.

It's either a MS-6734 or MS-7061 (if either of those are correct)

If you want a definite answer, look at the motherboard. the model or product number will be on the board somewhere in white lettering..


the MS-6734 uses Realtek Audio Drivers
the MS-7061 uses VIA Audio Drivers

So you've got to know which one it is else it's not going to work

Either way, here is links to latest drivers for both: (Realtek)

Hello there,

My motherboard is the ASUS A7V8X-LA (Kamet2) with the VIA VT8378 UniChrome KM400 chipset.

I'm using Everest, that's what appears in the Sound card name: VIA AC'97 Enhanced Audio Controller

What's the correct drivers i have to download for my PC to play sound?

Please help me.

Many thanks in advance.

You should start your own thread instead of using someone else's, but since you already asked:

That board is a Custom board for HP. It's not on ASUS website for that reason.

The audio controller (in the southbridge) is by VIA but boards may often be using a Codec built by someone else. In this case that's true, it's a Realtek ALC658 (according to HP website)

As such, the standard Realtek AC'97 driver will probably work - this is assuming you have Windows XP. If you don't, then post back and say what you do have (you should have done this already!)

However with Windows XP, there's 3 you could try, in this order:

Driver from HP (should work but is rather old): ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp26001-26500/sp26412.exe
Driver from Realtek (probably will work, and is a newer version):
Driver from VIA (might not work): http://www.viaarena.com/Driver/vinyl_v700b.zip

Personally, I'd go for the driver from Realtek.
