Hi, im really struggling with this. I recently bought this motherboard and everything went fine, after I reinstalled everything up until the point I installed my onboard (Realtek AC97) audio. It installs fine and it is recognized but absolutely no audio comes out when I play something. Everything is max volume (not muted) etc. So I thought mabey the onboard is broken so I got myself a creative soundblaster live. After disabling my onboard sound and putting in the new sound card I installed the drivers and all is fine, but still NO SOUND is coming out. I tried headphones, different speakers so I really dont know what it could be. PLEASE HELP ME IM GOING OUT OF MY HEAD!
It sounds like a driver problem.
Go to Device Manager. Ususally it can be found by right-clicking on My Computer, go to Properties, then Hardware tab. I would uninstall everything under the "Sound, video, and game controllers" heading. Also, uninstall everything under the Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel that pertains to your sound card.
Remove the Soundblaster card, then turn computer on. Go to BIOS setup, and enable onboard audio. Each motherboard is different. If you don't know how to do this, I suggest referencing your motherboard's user manual.
Once onboard audio (AC97) has been enabled, load Windows. It should recognize and install all drivers needed. If this does not work, I recommended downloading the latest drivers from your manufacturer's website and installing them.
If new drivers don't work, it's hard to say. It sounds like it's a software problem, tho, since you have the same issue with your Soundblaster card. As a last resort, you could wipe your harddrive and reinstall Windows. Make sure to backup any personal files first, of course.

hi this sounds like you may have bought the wrong type of graphics card for your motherboard, depending on the age of your motherboard they have changed over from AGP to PCI-e or even ePCI-e now if you have a slot that looks just like a PCI expansion slot at the top on its own away from the other ones, this will indicate a PCI-e or ePCI-e slot, if you have a brown slot at the top of the other ones this will be a AGP slot, just in case you have the right card, for the right slot, there is a locking clip at the end of the AGP slot that you have to pull to one side to put it in check to see if this is the case, then just do that.........hope this helps
I recently had this msg pop up on my edge card.
recent update to 1.5 kernel. I went to root director fo my sd card.
Right-clicked (pop-up menu) on Edge.dat went to Properties.
Here I noticed that Archive box was checked. So I unchecked
that box and pressed apply. Poped my sd back on my edge then my ds and it booted fine. Give this a try.
let me know if it works for you. firstname.lastname@example.org
It has to be have CD Support Utility Disc available of your PC.. Use it to install audio sound card and run it in your PC. This are free software. Just follow the instruction needed to install high definition audio. Good luck!
If i am helpful to you, please rate me. Thank you.
Visit this link: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=2839, select your OS and download the latest sound driver. Also run your add hardware from control panel even if you have to select the device manually.........sodeep
Uninstall the driver & again install it out.If still it doesn't work then check for the type of motherboard,& audio chipset.Down load the driver from internet & install it out.It must work,if driver problem persist.If at all hardware problem then you have to use the usb soundcard for audio to enable in laptop.It also works fine.
How much power does your power supply give? It could be that your power supply cannot take the power of your videocard. They say it is recommended to have at least 700watts of power with that videocard as it consumes a lot of power.
in the control panel check sound and audio devices option- audio-default playback device- default recording device. Check whether sigma tel audio is present by default. if not then try changing to dafault audio devices both play back and recording options.Restart computer to check sound is heard this time.. all the best !
