    Thanks so much to you both.

    I ended up searching Intel for my motherboard manual, and found it, and therefore was able to sort it out.

    Seems without jumpers, the audio connectors had to be in place, for my onboard sound to work. (it runs through the IRQ).

    Many thanks.

    This site is awesome. 1st time here and i'm highly impressed.

    Thanks again.

Do you have a digicam? It would have been great if you could upload the picture of your Back-panel IO connectors. Till then you can try the green hole to connect speakers. the basic colour code for audio is...
Pink/Red: Microphone
Blue/Sky: Line-In
Green/Lime: Speakers/Headphones
Try and tell me.

K8S-La PCI sockets fail Windows 2K fails to detect - no I/O map or interupts

What is a 56k Modem doing in that list? You using dial-up?

At any rate, download, and install the Chipset drivers.

Need guidance in downloading AND installing the Chipset,
(Motherboard Chipset) drivers?

I need the Product Number of the HP or Compaq computer.
This can be found on the back of the computer, in the white Service Tag. P/N = Product Number

Also need to know what Operating System you are using.
Windows 2000?

Post back in a Comment.

[Let's take a look at a Motherboard Diagram, that fits the technology of that Asus K8S-LA (Salmon) mobo,

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply - Processor - for short.

As you can see the Northbridge chip, of the motherboard chipset; handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

HIGH-speed graphics is AGP, and PCI Express.
A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot; or using Integrated Graphics; is NOT high-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.

A) The PCI bus. (And Integrated Graphics)
B) IDE bus
C) SATA bus
D) USB bus
E) Ethernet bus
F) Audio (Sound)

The Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, is a SiS 760.
The Southbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, is a SiS 964.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

Driver: A small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

Device in question is the Southbridge chip.
Operating System is Win2K (?) ]

Mother board manual for Chiantech VNF4 Ultra

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires from the Front panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

Motherboard installed in computer case, (Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right), the Front Panel header is at the Bottom/Right corner,

Black rectangle of plastic with 17 contact pins. Top row has 9 pins, Bottom row has 8.

Notice that the Bottom row has a White triangle pointing to the first pin.
This triangle points to Number 1 pin.

Top row has 9 pins.
Starting on the LEFT side going across to the Right;
Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, and 18.

Bottom row has 8 pins.
Starting on the LEFT side going across to the Right;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, NO PIN, and 17.

A) Pins 1 and 2 are for the Green Button. This is also the Standby button.
Let's discuss this for a moment............
Myself I wouldn't connect to it.

B) Pins 3 and 4 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
(Light Emitting Diode, so to call it an LED light is redundant)
Pin 3 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the Harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

C) Pins 6, 8, 10, and 12 are for an internal speaker. Used so the computer can generate BIOS Beep Codes.
Doesn't indicate which pin is for the Positive ( + ) wire, but with most motherboard speaker setups, Pin 6 would be for the Positive ( + ) wire, and Pin 12 for the Negative ( - ) wire.

D) Pins 5, 7, and 9 are for the Power On LED.
Notice there are 3 pins. This is used for a dual color Power On LED light.
Usually a Green/Yellow.
Pin 9 is for the Positive wire.

Two wire Power On LED? Positive wire goes to Pin 7, or Pin 9. I believe both to be a Positive connection.
Pin 5 I believe to be the Negative connection. ( - )

(I suggest connecting the Negative wire to Pin 5. Then connect the Positive wire to Pin 9. Not very bright? Put it over to Pin 7 )

E) Pins 11 and 13 are for the Power On switch.

F) Pins 14 and 16 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

G) N/C for Pin 17. No Connection.

H) N/C for Pin 18. No Connection.

Here's the full review starting from Page 1 detailing the motherboard,

After a powerout my 865 mother board does not recoganize the eathernet card. Add remove hardware does not help as it does not accept the driver,comes a warning 'the harware is not installed properly will...

If the powerout was caused by surge, very possible something was damaged. If you have more than one expansion slot, try the ethernet card in another slot.
Try a different expansion card in the old slot. If you don't have one, pick up an old 56K modem and try it. You can get one for less then $10. This will help rule out whether problem is in expansion slot or ethernet card.

How to connect the front panel sould device?

Do you mean speaker or front panel audio? The front panel audio connector is located at the rear of the board, behind the PCI connectors - the speaker connections are in the panel connector block (2x10 pin header) located at the front left of the board.

With the board in it's normal position, the speaker pins are on the right hand side of that block, on the pin nearest the front and the one 3 positions behind that

<back of board>

Connecting front panel wiring to INTEL 845GRG Motherboard

Hello davideiker1, the Intel D845GRG MB manual is shared with another Intel board. (D845GBV MB). Go to this Intel site & download the D845GRG manual; You'll need Adobe reader to view the manual. Download Adobe from this link;
See page 9 for motherboard layout.
The front panel connectors are shown on page 68, see item C.
On page 69 is, Table 31 shows the pin assignments for the front panel header. Front Panel Header (J9G1).
Pin 1 is power for the hard disk drive led, pin-3 is negative for the hard disk drive. Wire colors coming from the case are important. Look at all of the front case wires. The common color for each 2-pin connector will be ground. In most cases the ground wire is white, except for the internal speaker. Ground for the speaker is normally black. (This motherboards speaker is built into the MB, no hook up is needed).
Pin number 2 is positive for the case power led which lights up as green. Pin 4 is negative for the power led.
The reset switch is a bit different. Pin 5 is negative & pin 9 is positive, however if your case uses a two pin connector than connect pin 7 as ground & pin 9 for positive. The On/Off switch, pin 6 is positive & pin 8 is negative.
If this manual is not what you see on the MB, please advise.

Good luck davideiker1!

MSI motherboard model 6734 AGP interface

Looks like your motherboard is a MSI KM4AM-L detailed here:

If so, then it has an AGP slot which will run at 4x and 8x.

Remember to check the BIOS settings after you install it to make sure it is set to 8x, if that is what your card will take.
