Assuming that you are talking about the onboard sound card
Unfortunately, this board has not been validated for Windows Vista and 7. It wont be supported anyway as it is an end of interactive board, and possibly end of life as well.
Possibly you can try this:
Download the onboard sound driver
Using software like Winrar, try to extract it.
Try to install audio component maually from the device manager by browsing into the extracted folder.
All the best,
I installed Windows 7 rc on my D865GBF. Win7 had all the drivers except audio and graphics. A few days later I discovered Windows update had an update for the audio. As I remember, it was a small file. As soon as I downloaded and installed it, the audio started working. I still don't have a driver for the onboard graphics, but I have sound.
I don't know about Vista. Apparently Vista drivers work on Win7. I don't know if the reverse is always true.
There still is no Vista driver on Intel's web site, and of course no mention of Win7 drivers at all. But somehow Windows update had the driver for Win7. Surprised the hell out of me.
If you can't get the Vista driver, you can always buy a PCI sound card.
I no longer have Win7 on this D865GBF computer, due to an "accident" caused by XP's disk management. Maybe some day I'll re-install it.
Thanks for helping out. You are right, sometimes the easiest thing we tend to forget. I have seen many cases where a simple windows update fixes the issue.
Glad that you mentionned this, i will take a note of this.
All the best,
Yesterday i buy INTEL P4 GBF 865, i install all the drivers, but audio is not working, when i try to install audio driver, at the end of installation it appears " No driver found, rebot your computer and try again " and i did it many times, and even i download driver from this link, http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?ProductID=948&DwnldID=6816&lang=enghttp://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?ProductID=948&DwnldID=6816&lang=engbut but still the problem is same, let me know how to solve it,
Steve, could you please paste here to link of that particular file which fixed the sound problem in windows 7. Thanks
I installed win 7 on 865gbf motherboard. Installed XP Profeesional drivers on it using setup. sound & other drivers got installed. But graphics drivers did not get installed. I tried manully installing them but without success. Then I remembered all these are Win 2000 family Op systems. I downloaded Win 2000 drivers and manually installed the graphics drivers from device_drivers-update driver tab. Lo! the graphics driver got installed. Now I have Windows 7 Professional on Intel 865gbf motherboard with all the drivers installed! And it is pleasure to look at my monitor with all windows display features.
Can u share the link to me. I installed the Windows 7 but could not able to find out the sound driver and display driver for windows 7.
Thank you for posting,
