Question about EPoX EP-8K9A Motherboard

1 Answer

Sound... etc so... what now? you gotta help me! Do you think I can have your phone number I can call you for guidance?? The internet doesn't seem to be consistent either... why would that be? it's being cabled from a netgear wireless router... it's an ongoing issue with the other pc's connected to it too... is it the internet connection (Virgin) or the router? Cheers

With regards to the internet, thats likely the connection, but Virgin should be able to give you an exchange test account to verify whether it's at your end or theirs. The only thing I can think of for you to try is, boot into your computers BIOS and ensure the onboard audio is NOT disabled. Then; 1. Load the motherboard CD 2. See if you can locate the audio drivers 3. Launch the installer Or 1. Boot into safe mode 2. Launch the setup from the download URL I last gave you for the drivers If neither of those work, I'd be inclined to think you've got a problem with the onboard audio, in which case, I'd suggest trying an external card.

    Sorry for not being clear. To boot into Safe Mode, tap F8 whilst the computer is loading, until the boot menu appears.

    To access the BIOS, you'll need to tap either of the following (the key depends on the board and varies somewhat) as soon as the machine is turned on;


    DEL amd F2 are the most common.

Doesn't matter about the Processor, Motherboard chipset, Ram Memory, or Harddrive;

What DOES matter is what audio chipset it is using.

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

The audio I.C., or audio chipset, for the Mercury PIG31Z motherboard, is a Realtek ALC655,


Let's look at available downloads, see if there is one for the Realtek ALC655, and Windows 7 drivers,

Yes -> Win7_655_Audio
Click on the Down Arrow under the Download subheading, and across from Win7_655_Audio

Remember, you have to download AND install.
Need guidance, post back in a Comment.
(Also post if the download works. I seem to have missed my 'time opportunity' )

I need video controller driver(vga compatible) because i can't play videos i download from the internet

This doesn't sound like a Driver issue, sounds more like you do not have the proper codec(encodes/decodes video)installed. Download This is a free video player. This player has a huge variety of video codecs pre-installed.

My computer has no sound

is your volume turned up? are your speakers on? are they pluged in? do you have them pluged in to the right jack that says spk out? or in? if so? and you still have no sound ? you might have to download your sound driver and install it? If it is a dell, compaq, etc you can go to their site and download the driver for your computer, you will have to write down your seial number make and model
etc. to get the right driver. After you insall the driver reboot your computer and see if you have sound?
if it still doesn't work? you might have to get another sound card. I hope this help!
