While i load window 7 sound driver not working

This appears to be a pretty old motherboard. To start with, check the volume control near the clock in the right side of the taskbar. If there is an X look at why - it is possible your speakers aren't plugged into the right place (try the green plug). Or your volume may be turned down all the way on the speakers or the volume control or the mute might be selected (just uncheck it or move the volume slider a little bit).

If those easy things don't work, there is a driver for Vista for your motherboard, so that same driver should (but no guarantees) work for Windows 7 - make sure you know whether your OS is 32 or 64 bit - there are two easy ways to tell.

First, open an Explorer window using the folder icon in the Taskbar, and click the little triangle next to the C: drive. If there are two Program Files folders (one with x86) then you have 64 bit. If not, you have 32. The other way to tell is to go to the Control Panel, show Large Icons, and double-click System. It will tell you whether your OS is 32 or 64 bit.

Here is the link for the driver from Asus:

Be sure to download the correct driver. Install it and it should work. If it does not work, the sound card on the motherboard may be bad. It is also possible the audio portion of the motherboard is turned off in the BIOS setup program. Look in the Device Manager in the Control Panel under Sound, Video, and Game Controllers for a specific device such as Realtek High Definition Audio Device or something similar, or there may be something under Other Devices like 'PCI audio controller' or something to that effect.

If those are missing, try going into the BIOS setup program by rebooting your computer and right as you see the Asus splashscreen press the Delete key on your motherboard. Look under Advanced Options or something similar to see if the Audio bus is turned off - if it is then turn it on.

If nothing works, you should be able to get an add-on PCI sound card from a place like Newegg (I like Soundblaster cards) and install it.

I hope that helps!

I can't seem to get PowerPoint to pick up the sound from the microphone..... I have tried every conceivable setting under the sun.... Using Microsoft XP.... Message telling me to go to Multimedia...

Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7



In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.

Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.

Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).

NOTE if your microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. Same applies for Internal mic.

That should be it.

To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.

You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.

My computer will no longer play music or any kind of noise

Check that your speakers are plugged into the right jack either in your sound card or the sound panel on the motherboard. If no sound then try plugging speakers into another computer and see if they are working and have power. Go to "control panel" and click on "Sound and Audio Devices" and under the volume tab under Device Volume make sure that the "Mute" box isn't checked. Also check the "place Volume icon in the taskbar" box if it isn't already checked. Go to the Volume control on the task bar and check out the audio volume levels and make sure they're not turned all the way off. Also under "Sound and Audio Devices" underl Volume tab click on "Advanced" and make sure that you have selected the proper kind of speakers in the speaker setup box.

YOu didn't say so, so I'm assuming that you're using Windows XP. If you're not the menus may be a little different but similar.

Internal MIC not working

If you are using xp, try going to the control panel, sound and audio devices, click on audio tab.
to check the mic settings, click on the volume tab under the sound recording sections. Make sure that the mic is selected and the volume turned up. It may be working only to record, not to hearback without you may have to actually be recording or talking to someone to know if its workings.
To check the sound, check to see if your audio device is selected under "sound playback" section...and make sure that all channels are unmuted and turned up. you may also have to check the volume control on the laptop (actual buttons on the pc) if there are any, and make sure that the volume is up and unmuted there also.
Hope this helps.
