Default Cant install Audio drivers - need help

Ok, so I just put together my new rig. The mobo is the DFI LP DK P35-T2RS

When I try to install the audio drivers off of the cd it fails at the end every single time, then I went to the DFI website and d/l'd directly from there, but it was the exact same thing and failed at the exact same spot.

What else can I do to get sound? I really dont kno anything else besides what I have tried already


CPU - Q6600 @ 3.0 atm
HSF - Lapped TRUE + Scythe
RAM - 2x 1G Ballisitx Tracers
HD - 500G Barracuda + 320G Ext
PSU - PC P&C Silencer 610
OS - Windows XP 32-bit SP2 OEM
Case - Gigabyte 3D Aurora 570
Monitor - Hanns-G 19" Widescreen LCD
Headset - Sennheiser PC151
3DMark06 - 14186 (3.0 / stock gpu)

You must try some of my purple berries...

Install other drivers first. Try windows update.


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
