    let me know. but either way i will get a external sound card for better sound, cause the car pc hooked up to an amp will still sound like ****. I need much better sound than that. and those sound cards arent even that expensive. my friend said that thier like 100 new.

    So far everthing works on my board exept the sound for the onboard chip, but i will still try some things today to see if i can get it to work.

    Ill let you know

    No Luck for me

    No Luck for me in getting the sound ports to work, any luck for you?

    I ended up sending mine back.
    The seller gave me back my money without question.

    However, he made an interesting comment.

    got both mb back to and my tech tested them both with win xp pro and they work great! but here is your money back.

    Now I know I tested them good and solid.

    There's no denying have to use the CMOS erase jumper to reset the board (LOL!)

    I even used two different operating systems and could not get the sound card to work.

    *sigh*.. I would have kept them if they worked great!

    You should have asked them what drivers they were using. I tried differnt drivers, for that chip, and i even had to reformat my HD because i couldent get into windows after i did one. Ive had no luck with the damn soundcard, but i ordered an audigy nx external soundcard, so i dont even care that it dont work. It would have been nice to have some sound.

    Everthing else works great, so far i havent had any problems.

    > You should have asked them what drivers they were using.

    I can always ask.

    Windows did autodetect the chip so I used those drivers.
    I even installed the drivers from Freetech's site.
    In addition linux autodetected it and it still did not work.

    I'm curious if there are more people having the same situation.


    I'll probably send a note to the seller anyway.
    I'm certainly not incompetent, and if they "worked great" I would have kept it them <GRIN>.

    FWIW, He did refund my shipping, so I only came out of it loosing the shipping back to him.
    He was prompt in response and courteous.
    I did get good customer service.

    In the end, I decided to go with a COMMELL LV-673 in a CMB-673 configuration. (My use is not a an actual mobile one, just a small form factor for a custom network appliance).

    When I priced out the parts for the same MoBo, a PIII & RAM I could not buy all the separate parts at the same price point. It became closer to the price of a low end p4 environment so I decided to just push it to that level and more. My computers usually last 2-3 years anyway.

    Good Luck with your project.
