IN810ES - FAQ's

Q: I am having problem with the sound. I cannot set up the sound which I downloaded from the Web. Windows 98 sees it as an unknown device, "PCI Multimedia Audio Device." What is the solution?


A: Restart your system and press F8 and choose Safe Mode. Go to Device Manager under System found in the Control Panel and remove all unknown devices and anything under Multimedia section (audio, wavetables, etc) and restart the system. It will auto-detect the sound subsystem and ask for the drivers and provide it what you have downloaded from the Web.

Q: What is the pin out for the Power LED on this board?


A: It is two pin on the power connector labeled GRN/YEL. It is a bi-directional; one direction will make GREEN LED to emit while another will make YELLOW LED to emit. GREEN LED should emit while the power is on and system is running at a normal mode, and the YELLOW LED should emit while the power is on but in sleep mode. If the color shows the opposite, just reverse the polarity. It will not work with three pin LED configuration.
