    no audio in WinME!! please help

    ::this may not be in the right forum place so move as necessary ::

    I have an old computer I'v been putting back together after a rather disasterous CPU death...
    anyway - I got myself another mobo - A7N8x-dlx - which I have on another XP based machine and works fine. the problem I'm having is that I can't get the audio drivers to work at all...no little icon appears in the system tray despite me installing the drivers from the CD I have. just having no joy.
    I try to play MP3's but I get an error message saying audio hardware not found/recognised...
    I made it work with Win 98 but in ME I seem to be having a few problems.
    I went to the ftp site to try and get some things; anv_me.zip which I found as an audio driver but it didn't help. . .

    I'm utterly stumped as to what to do now as I feel I'v tried most things, so any help would be magic.

    WinME is the most buggiest OS MS have made IMO, and IME (In My Experiance) some have problems, very few don't. I would suggest either trying a BIOS update if there is one, or upgrade your OS to either Win2K or XP, or stick with Win98.

    I guess some other people might have better suggestions. I hope so for your sake that you get it working!

    WinME is disgustingly bad and flawed, it should have never seen the light of day. Win98SE is better (and I'd consider it an upgrade) otherwise use 2000/XP. Biggest problem is hw support esp drivers as ME uses drivers different form both the normal Win9x (95, 98) or Win2000/XP. The OS was around for such a breif time most manus never bothered with it.

    fair enough, i can get hold of a 98se, just it takes AGES to do any thing in it, couple of mins to load up and photoshop seems so slow too... hm... I hate MS and their XP on only one computer rubbish.
