HP (Hewlett-Packard) Compaq D330/D530 Motherboard


The audio drivers shipped with the motherboard did not work. And none of the drivers on the HP, Asus, or Reltek sites worked either. The Reltek drivers even failed with a 'blue screen'. I had to install a separate sound card to get any sound.

A good number of features, easily replacing my old mother board that failed

Audio Drivers did not work.No general setup instructions for the motherboard
