For many years I've used my Windows XP SP3 and it works great. A few months ago it wouldn't start up it kept showing the boot menu. That's another long story if anyone is interested.
I put back the original 500GB drive just so I can access emails. The only hard drive was set to the old graphics card. The new graphics card is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770.
When you insert the CD and install drivers it says it needs internet connection to do so. To me that's total bull, it should install the graphics drivers else what's the point in having a CD. Its a graphics card not a sound card.
Its a Gigabyte motherboard and you insert the CD and install all drivers and updates. It installs Realtek Audio Driver
The install options shows NVIDIA High Definition Audio, physics, GeForce desktop. Its a graphics card why the hell does it force When its restarts there is no audio/sound. Device Manager shows
Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus !!!!
NVIDIA High Definition Audio
Realtek High Definition Audio
Realtek HD Audio Input
Realtek HD Audio output
This Speccy shows the 500GB drive but everything else is the same.
I remember on the last rebuild there was no sound but I sorted that but that was along time ago so I can't remember what I did exactly.
I downloaded and installed Realtek High Definition Audio XP 2.74 XP. from FileHippo but the audio still doesn't work
Before I put the new Seagate Barracuda 2.0TB hard drive in I want to get the audio sorted.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
