    Windows ME VIA AC'97 not working

    Only reason I disable irq steering is because it is the only way to get the other pci devices to work. Otherwise they install but do not work and have an exclamation point saying "The device is not working properly because IRQ Holder for pci steering is not working properly (Code 31.)" I click properties as it says than it says for the IRQ Holder for PCI steering "that the device is disabled because the bios didn't give it an irq request (code 29.)"And that I must enable it in bios. I set my ide controller to no channels enabled. And yes fresh install no drivers for anything and disabled all I could and IRQ 09 seems to go to the IRQ Holder for pci steering. Thanks for helping

    I formatted the disk and did a fresh install with the /p i flag. I did not point the installer to any driver directory nor install any drivers. I ended up with the same exclamations in device manager as previous installs. The first three images are directly after the install. The second three are after I disable IRQ steering. The last 2 are the devices found with errors.

    Yes I did copy newer VIAmach.inf with the 6.0.00.0300. version. The above pictures are from after copying

    I tried that method with both the original VIA and than BIostar drivers and still no luck. Tried again with fresh install and again no luck. I have previously tried that updated chipset driver and it does adds more specific drivers but not audio IRQ apparently. Attached is my IRQ's and PCI bus. The IRQ steering is set like that because if any of the check boxes in any combination are enabled the graphics, Ethernet, and USB will not work. If i uncheck the Use PCI steering than the audio tells me to enable it. However, the audio does not work whether it is turned on or off nor which boxes are checked

    Sorry, for such the break in replying. The driver version of the Viamach.inf is 08/16/2001 5.1.00.0230 . This is the official chip set driver from what is left of the everex site

    I tried a fresh install with the alc850_6240 driver by directing windows to the WDM with no results than tried installing the driver via the setup exe and still no luck. Device manger still gives the same error

    Thanks, and that's a good idea I've been doing a lot of inefficent reinstall when I begin to get frustrated with all the drivers.

    I tried at @Goodmaneuver's suggestion with the a399 version and still no luck. I later tried the A4.06 and still no luck. Both sets of drivers install but end up with the same error of being disabled in bios

    To be honest I could not tell you Iv installed and tried so many things over so many installations. Im assuming I should install the chip set drivers before anything else, correct?

    Thank you but unfortunately that did not work either. Ended up with the exact same error. Maybe I will try a fresh install without ACPI
  13. I have an old Everex Stepnote LM7WZ laptop with an Unichrome S3 VN800 graphics card with a VT8273R plus south bridge. As you may know Everex is out of business so contacting their support is not possible and this Laptop only officially supports Windows XP. I am looking to use this laptop to run 98SE/Me for some old games and just playing around. I know this isnt ideal for gaming as I dont want to spend the money to get a graphics card for my real 98 PC. I managed to get ME installed onto the laptop and by using the XP drivers and googling I managed to get the graphics, USB, and Ethernet working. The Sound, modem, and WIFI do not work in which i don't need the modem or WIFI. However I can not get the Via AC'97 sound to work! I tried both the Windows XP drivers and ones designed for Windows 98/ME and still no luck. I keep ending up with an error about the device being disabled in bios. However, the bios is extremely limited and their is no option for any thing related to sound, modem, COM ports. However, the sound works fine under Linux, Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8 as I tried them all. I am thinking there might be an issue with the IRQ steering as the error mentions it and I had to make it only enabled for ACPI in order for the Display, Ethernet, and USB to work. However, i have tried leaving it back to the defaults and all different combinations but still no luck. Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions? I know Im better off giving up or buying a USB soundcard but it seems a shame that something as simple as sound will cause problems.
  14. Thanks. Yea that is a possibility but I already have an old HP Scanjet from a dumpster dive. I think you might be able to also use a picture file in the faxes not 100% sure.
