    Ok nevermind I guess I fixed it but I really have big problem when my computer starts up I get the new hardware wizard. First one is video controller I try to let it install on its own and it finds nothing and then Im left with finding it from a list or specific location. I dont even know what a video controller is. That goes for multimedia audio controller. What should I do?

If you want to know everything about my computer here it is motherboard specifications . And here is the product specifications product specifications Hope this helps. And thank you very much for taking the time to help with this probably small problem

    Hey Mccoffee Thank you soo much for the downloads. But I came accross some problems while installing the chipset I was missing audio3d.dll but I found that on the net and installed it but the sound is barely hearable. If I put my ear to the speaker I can hear some sound and I know its not the volume cause I turned everything up but my question is Do I need to download a specific Audio3d.dll to work with my realtek? Also I came accross a missing usbehcin.sys. that I couldnt find. Thanks again Mccoffee for the downloads you really helped me out alot I appreciate that.
