Re: Audio outputs doesn't working
It sounds like a motherboard sound chip failure, although run a diagnostics on the sound, click Start>run, then type 'dxdiag', hit 'Enter' and run sound driver test.
If it has failed, you can purchase a cheap PCI slot souncard and dissable your onboard sound, or a complete new motherboard.

Have you installed the Soundblaster drivers? Have you plugged your speakers in to the soundblaster outputs? When you install a discrete card (graphics or sound) it bypasses the onboard chips. You could also try the audio settings in the control panel.
this what you do, You go to your bios by F2 or whatever command that enters setup. You diasable the onboard sound card first. Go out and puchase a nice sound car around $40 bucks respectivly put it into a pci slot install your drivers and your good to go. remeber you speakers connect now to the back of the new sound card outputs not the one onboard.
Here is what i think what happend the back of the computer where the previous sound card was or still is those jacks may have died on you so you headphones that are plugged into the frount hack work and so will your speakers but i know its a hassel but a new sound card will take care of this iisue.
thanks i hope this information does help please do leave ratings and postive feedback for your free solution.
A keyboard will work in the S2 port which will allow you to enter the bios.
It sounds as though the onboard battery has failed. Without a new battery, you will be able to change the bios settings but they won't be saved so you'll keep getting the error message when you boot up.
Load your CD that came with your ASUS board and go to utilities. In utilities you will find all of your drivers for that motherboard.
If you dont have the CD, then go to ASUS website, support section. There you will be able to download all of the drivers need for your motherboard.
If you still cant get sound to work, check your BIOS and make sure you dont have the audio disabled. If you have a sound card in addition to the onboard audio (built into the motherboard) then you may have to go into the BIOS and disable the onboard audio.
You can also check in your device manager under sound to see if there are any problems there.
To get there using XP go to
Start/Control panel/performance maintance/system/hardware/device manager/sounds
Good luck, I hope this helps
You'll want to verify that the onboard audio is enabled within the bios first, beyond that the audio codecs for that mobo should be the Realtek AC97 drivers, go to this link to obtain them. You have a choice of two - the AC97 standard codecs or the HD codecs (I would probably try the HD codecs first). I would also be curious as to whether the audio hardware is showing up in the device manager at all (especially if it has the yellow exclamation point next to it).
Based on what you posted about a bios update being the catalyst I would definitely check the onboard audio enabled within the bios option first...
Please post a little more info (especially about what the device manager says) or your results from the reinstall of the AC97 drivers...
did you do the drivers? does the sound blaster have the drivers?if the onboard failed the add on should work, if it's not broken. make sure you have the right driver. you can download them on creative labs website, or asus website for that board, but disable the onboard if you use the add in sound blaster. this should work, if you had sound before, also make sure no conflicts with sound devices. hope thi helps happy new year..
either from the asus website, http://usa.asus.com/index.aspx ,or from Realtec, that is the hardware that asus normally uses on their motherboard. But just go to the asus site and click on the support and it will ask you the model number of the board that's it. You will see if there are any other downloads that came out for your board also. You should keep that link in your favorites. Here is the exact page for your board just download the driver here. thanks and dont forget to rate my answer, I appreciate it, thanks again,Gym
