Question about Biostar P4M890-M7 Motherboard

Added nvidea 9300 GS card and Audio devices disappeared

When I remove the card and reboot audio devices reappear. Why does the audio go away with this card? I have been in bios trying to find some kind of setting that would disable only the onboard video, but to no avail. Are they tied together?

    When going into device manager, the sound and audio icon is not even present. Vista does not even see the devices. Realtek is the onboard audio, and I have gone to both the motherboard manufacter and to Realtek. I don't know what else to do.

Shouldn't be tied together. find your onchip audio drivers from either your motherboard manufacturers website or your motherboard disk if you have one. what does your control panel -> sound and audio devices look like?

I am troubleshooting a dell Optiplex Gx 270 desktop computer that initially had a yellow question mark in the device manager for the Multimedia audio contrroller and still produces no audio. I dowloaded...


Obvious things - make sure that your speakers are connected - desktops don't generally have internal speakers - and make sure the volume is turned on/up or is not muted. Go to settings>Control Panel>sounds/audio devices.

If all looks ok, go back into device manager and right click the audio controller and delete it. Then reboot the computer. It will automatically reinstall on reboot.

When i am installingconxtant audio driver it is telling media device not found and not installing


Typically, if you are getting a "device not found" error upon trying to install an audio device driver, there are a number of issues that could be going on at one time.

First: You may have the wrong device driver or version of the device driver for the device intended for. Check the hardware version number and verify on the website of the hardware device (the audio card if it is an independent audio card that is what you are referring to) what is the latest revision of the driver. Download the driver and install it.

Second: If your device is an external audio card, make sure it's fully inserted into the PCMIA slot (seriel port if being used). If so, then accomplish the following procedure: Power down your PC. Remove the Audio Card and reboot PC. Allow PC to recognize no audio card, then shut down PC and reinstall Audio Card. Reboot PC and install with new Audio Driver

One of the two steps above should rectify the problem. If it doesn't, then the last resort is to assume the Audio card is faulty if it's an external Audio card.

If you have an internal Audio card, then there can be a faulty portion on the sound portion of the motherbood, which then would require the entire motherboard to be replaced. But before you result to this, be sure you have the newest Audio driver for the Audio Codec and installed correctly.

Please keep in mind, Conexant is an OEM supported Audio Codec and you need to refer to the maker of the PC itself for driver support. I.E. it may be a Conexant Audio chipset installed in a HP PC. So, be sure you go the manufacturer website such as "HP" for the audio driver support.

Hope this helps,

No sound (AsRock P4 Combo)


1.
Check the speaker connections - take the plugs out and put them back.
Make sure the speakers get power.
Test the sound with headphones.
If it is a Laptop be sure the speakers are turned on (Usually an Fn function key).

2.
Load a system restore point from a date before the sound problem started.

3.
Has the audio service been started by Windows?
Click Start > Run > type services.msc - then click OK.
In the new window - Scroll down to "Windows Audio", right-click on it and select Properties.
Another new window - set the startup type to Automatic, click Apply and then click Start.

Have a look in "Play control" and any other sound mixer you may have installed to check if the sound is muted.
Go to Control Panel >> Sounds and Audio Devices.
Check to see if your sound card is listed.
If no audio device is detected proceed to step 5.

Be sure the Volume is turned up (at least half way).
The MUTE box should not be checked (go to the advanced window and make sure that nothing is muted).
Select the proper speaker settings under speaker settings advanced tab.
Set the speaker setup settings accordingly.

Is your sound card the default playback device?
Right click the speaker icon next to the clock >> Choose "Adjust Audio Properties".
Click on the Audio tab and select the correct device.
If you make any changes - click Apply, then OK before you close the window.

If you use another type of audio program, please refer to that program's trouble shooter for diagnostics.

Creative Sound Card owners can try this:
Click Start >> Programs >> Creative >> "Sound Card", for example Audigy >> Creative Restore Defaults.


4.
Check to see if the sound card is properly installed in the Device Manager.

Right click My Computer >> Properties >> Hardware Tab >> Device Manager >> in the "View" menu - click "Show hidden devices".

If there are yellow or red "marks" next to the audio, "Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus" or an unknown device - install drivers (see step 6).

If Windows does not detect an ONBOARD (Integrated) sound card >> Check to see if it is ENABLED in the BIOS (Setup).
If Windows does not detect a PCI sound card (an Added sound card) >> Shut the computer down, disconnect power. Take the sound card out and put it back again - if possible, use another PCI slot.

5.
Install available Windows updates, including DirectX.
Go to Start >> All Programs >> Windows Update.

6.
Installing drivers:

6a. Install the chipset driver first >> Reboot.

6b. If a "Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus" is present in Device manager >> install the driver >> Reboot.

6c. Uninstall old sound drivers:
Check in Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel for an Audio device driver (i.e. AC97).
Go to the Device Manager and uninstall the driver (Right click on the device >> uninstall).

Install the sound driver >> Reboot.

The drivers to install can be found on a CD that came with the computer/motherboard/sound card.

Sound card will not work cant get sound


Try removing the card from the unit and reboot without card.
After the reboot, check your device manager for flags or exclamation marks. Or the phase " unknown Device "
If found remove them and reboot unit.
Remove any external devices such as external CD DVD drives, Flash cards or wireless devices.
After the reboot, check your device manager again to assure that you have no problems.
Shut down unit and re-install your card. Restart unit and it should load the correct drivers for the card or give you a can't find drivers message.
Check your audio and see if you notice a difference.
If not, replace the audio card.

Audio problem


You either have the wrong driver installed or a conflicting driver is present. Go to control panel->system->device manager-> look for the yellow exclamation point, double click on it and follow those instructions. If that does not work. Right click on the device, REMOVE, then reboot and let it refind it.
