Just build my new game system, and I can't seem to get XPpro to install. Here are my specs:
Asus p5wd2 premium
P4/3.0 ghz 800M socket 775
pqi turbo 2gigs 240pin ddr2 sdram 667(pc2-5400)
BFG GeForce 6800gt 256 MB dvi pci express x16 video card
2 western digital 80 GB ide
420 watt power supply
I took the drivers from the asus cd and extracted the ide drivers onto a floppy disk and used the F6 key to install the drivers so that the OS will see the hard drives. I was able to install xppro and sp2 on top of that, but everytime I ran Warcraft or Halo, the game would crash because of the onboard audio. I called Asus, they suggested to flash the bios then reinstall. I flashed bios to the latest one found on support.asus.com, but I could not reinstall the audio drivers. I called Asus again, and they suggested that I should do a clean install and load the latest drivers on support.asus.com for the my motherboard. At this point, I can't even load an os, it would blue screen as if it is having major driver problems. Can anyone help?
thank you so much!
