    According to the Gigabyte website, this board has the RealTek audio and needs the drivers and realtek software. This software has many settings, which sometimes make people think the hardware does not work Here is an image of the software control panel.

    If you go to the audio i/o panel, there is a wrench on a blue button, small below the word demo, this has setting which you may need to alter. Please let me know what you have.

No audio device is showing on my gigabyte 7vm400m-rv motherboard. what pin connections should there be to enable this function


Hi Steve

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System and my answer seems to be of some relevance to you, please consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question. Please include information about the type, model and specification of your computer, its Audio/Sound Card and its Operating System. Doing so helps us makes faster, more accurate and more assured Remote Diagnostics leading to better quality and more useful Advice, Answers, Guidelines , How-Tos and Solutions.

You also don't say if you are using the on-board sound or a separate, dedicated PCI Audio/Sound Card.

Pin connections on the motherboard relate to the Front Panel Audio Connectors on the front of your Computer only.

If no audio device is showing on your Operating System's desktop, then this is an Audio Driver or Audio Device Settings problem, rather than a motherboard Front Audio Panel Header Pin Settings issue.

Start > (My) Computer > (System Properties) View System Settings > Device Manager

This will tell you if the Audio/Sound Device is installed and functioning properly and if the Audio/Sound Driver is installed properly. If a yellow question or exclamation mark appears next to the Audio/Sound Device, then there is a settings anomaly, fault, error or conflict with the device and/or its Driver.


AUDIO DEVICE SETTINGS
For your Audio/Sound Device to function properly, it must be set as the Default Device:

Start > Control Panel > (Hardware and Sound) Sounds and Audio Devices > (Manage Audio Devices) Audio > click on the preferred Default Playback device > Apply > OK > restart computer.


AUDIO/SOUND DRIVER PROBLEMS
Re-install the correct Audio/Sound Driver that relates to BOTH the device and your Operating System, then restart the computer. Install the Audio/Sound Driver either from the motherboard's Drivers and utilities CD or from here:

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2323#dl

Please note that this motherboard supports only Win 95/Win 98/Win 98SE/Win ME/Win 2000/Win NT/Win Server 2003 (32 Bit)/Win Server 2003 (64 Bit)/Win XP (32 Bit)/Win XP (64 Bit) and possibly also some Linux Distros (Operating Systems). If your Operating System is not included in this list, then it is highly probable that no Audio/Sound Drivers exist for that Operating System.

If this is the case, then consider buying and installing an inexpensive, basic 5.1 or 7.1 PCI Sound Card that is pre-confirmed as being compatible with your Operating System.

For motherboard pin settings diagrams, download the manual for this motherboard from here:

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Gigabyte-GA-K8VT800-manual/id/23286ag203/t/2/

MOTHERBOARD FRONT PANEL AUDIO HEADER SETTINGS
Pin 1 Left is usually MIC IN
Pin 2 Left is usually MIC BIAS/MIC PWR/MIC 5V
Pin 3 Left is usually OUT RIGHT
Pin 4 Left is usually GROUND/GRD
Pin 5 Left is usually OUT LEFT


Pin 1 Right is usually MIC GROUND/GRD
Pin 2 Right is usually Empty/Blank
Pin 3 Right is usually RIGHT RETURN
Pin 4 Right is usually Empty/Blank
Pin 5 Right is usually LEFT RETURN

I hope this helps.

My GA-G31M-S2L gigabyte motherboard still running 5-10 mins. then a sound appear through the mother board speaker and the display has gone


Are you using the integrated video on this board or do you have a dedicated video card?
Also, you could try disconnected the speakers on your system and check if the sound still persists to further isolate your issue.

In my gigabyte g41-combo mother board sound driver installed but sound is coming


i dont at all think that it is a problem. If windows 7 is not detecting your built-in via 1708s sound card then try installing the latest drivers from the gigabyte website or the via official website. If that doesn't work then try installing an add-on sound card that you can buy from anywhere.
