No Sound on P6VEM3 using Win XP
Supposedly this ECS P6VEM3 motherboard uses an SIS chipset, and the ECS website's sound driver for this board is for an SIS 7018, which installed without a hitch, but without sound, and showing no active sound device in the device manager. The weird thing is what I see on the board is a VIA VT1612A chip. However, when I try to install the VIA driver, the installer aborts, saying there is no appropriate hardware installed. The onboard sound has been enabled in bios. Any ideas?
