Question about ASUS M2A-VM Motherboard

Sound on new pc not working

Hello there. I recently purchased a new, custom build PC. It was previously running XP as a stop-gap before I purchased vista 64bit home premium, and now the sound has stopped working, but in a strange way.
Apparently there are 2 devices in my sound, video and games controllers.
These are "High Definition Audio Device" and "PnP Audio Device" and the first one is working fine (apparently) but the second will not start. It is claiming the drivers are up to date. When I click on the volume control it comes up with High Definition Audio Device as the main mixer and play audio it registers a noise, however no matter what output i use it cannot be heard. I think it might be a problem with the outputs but how can I fix it?

Here's the important specs:
ACERM2A-VM PCI-E MOBO
8192MB (8GB) DDR2

and HD 5.1 AC883 6 Channel is the inbuilt sound type.

If you need any other information please holler!

Please help, thanks!

Dan

    It didn't come with CD drivers unforunately, it's onboard sound. However I think I've narrowed down the problem - the PnP audio devices are the main jacks (7 jacks in all) and because they won't start (That goddamned error 10!) it won't take sound out of them. I've got no idea what the HDMI output is but it's definitely not one of the standard audio jacks and I've only got dvi and vga output! Until I can get these "PnP audio device"s working it'll be no sound.

    Alternatively, I could probably just buy a soundcard. But that costs money =)

No sound after installing windows xp


Hello!

Your motherboard holds an AC'97 sound chip, so the standard drivers from Realtek should work just fine :)

Loaded WindowsXP now I have no sound


there is the problem, i build computers and many new motherboards integrated sound chips will not work with XP. Typically the "azalia" sound chip only works with vista. Two ways round this are:
download windows xp service pack 1 from ms website and install it, then the sound chip will/may work. i have had some success with this. the other option which i tend to go for as it is easier quicker,cheaper,disable on board sound chip, plug in a pci slot fitting sound card, job done

Continous Beeping sound


Hi neosw,

Could you provide a little more detail?

Was this a previously working set-up or is this a new build?

If this was a previously working set-up have you changed anything?

When you switch on the PC
  • do you see anything on the screen, does the monitor remain in standby?
  • are any of the fans running?
  • does the hard drive spin up?
  • does the beeping sound stop after a short while?
The reason I ask these questions is because a continues beeping usually means that the BIOS is not seeing the processor, or that the power to the processor is not correct. With some BIOS manufactures it can also mean the processor clock speed is not set
correctly.

Please don't take this the wrong way but...if you provide greater detail in your question, the easier it for us to diagnose your problem, otherwise we can only make educated guesses.

I hope this has been of some help.

Regards,

Spare head 2

Thermal Shutdown


first, try to check the heatsink of the processor if it is full of dust and the air flow from the processor fun cannot penetrate to the processor.
second, double check the brackets that holds the heatsink to the motherboard, bcoz in most cases for socket 478, those bracket will easily get cracked due to aging, the reason the heatsink will not totally hit the processor.
third, remove the thermal pad on the heatsink and replace new one.
if you're done with the above mentioned, and still the same problem exist, may be there is something wrong with the sensor of the motherboard the reason it registered a wrond temp of the processor, but this cases rarely happens, but still it does.
