I see you mentioned that your motherboard does not install you Audio Driver.
What error does it say when installing the driver?
If the Audio driver does not install you will need to check in BIOS if the audio device built in the board is enable or not if it is disabled more or less it will have issues on installing the built in Audio driver.
If you have an Expansion Audio card then it gives an error when installing it then the Audio card is most likely experiencing problems possible faulty.
First get in the BIOS and check if the Audio Device is Enabled.
To get in BIOS on your Desktop as soon as you power the machine ON keep on tapping F1 or Delete on the keyboard
Open Advanced while in the bios. Than open Southbridge configuration. Please check bios for Onboard LAN Page 2-24 in you're manual. Set this to [Enabled] If you do not have this enabled the LAN controller will not function. Once enabled in bios save and exit the bios menu. Open windows update when you're system reloads. Click the custom button when windows update open’s. Windows update service will scan you're system and will see you're LAN is enabled. Windows will list drivers for you're on-board built-in LAN controller. Or you can use the Asus CD to install the LAN controller software. If you're LAN controller does not function you may need to add a PCI eithernet card.
Check the Bios setting for the built in audio.. Maybe it is set to disabled... if not, then there may be a problem with your motherboards built in audio..
Go to your BIOS setting then navigate to integrated peripherals, look for azalia. it should be in [auto]. Save then exit BIOS, then boot your pc normally.
I have been working on this for months and finally got everything including front audio panel going. First Download the latest realtek audio drivers available from intel's website or go here and download #3 http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=2839&OSFullName=Windows%2A+XP+Home+Edition&lang=eng&strOSs=45&submit=Go%21. Next goto control panel and add/remove programs then look for realtek audio drivers that have been previously installed. Remove program if one is found. Then go to device manager (right click my computer, go to properties, Then hardware, then device manager. Click on the"+" in front of system devices. Find "microsoft uaa bus driver for high defintion audio". Right click that and select, "disable". Then right click it again and "unintstall" the device. This will allow you to install the audio drivers on your disc, or ones you have downloaded to install without an error message. Once done install your audio drivers and restart your PC and windows should start dectecting your new hardware. An installation wizzard pops up. Install the files needed yourself from a specific location, not a disk. It will ask for location of file name "hdaudbus.sys". That file is in C:/Windows/System32 folder. If it's not there, which it should be, just find and download that one file but it should already be there. I have done all this on xp home ed, sp3. I now have sound, and my front audio panel works. Please let me know if you have any problems by emailing me at email@example.com
the only setting in the bios that is for your Graphics card is the VGA setting which needs to be set to AGP first or AGP primary.
items that appear under "other devices" do not have the drivers correctly loaded, The system can Identify them but has no drivers for them to function correctly.
you need to download or install the drivers for these devices.
The audio device may have old drivers which are not suitable for your OS, it would be best to download updated drivers from the mobo manufacturer's website.
hope this helps
