If everything is OK in Device Manager, check Audio in Sound and Audio Devices under Control Panel. The Sound playback should default to Device Manager device.

Plus, make Volume Controls are not muted.

Last, simply check with headphones.

SOURCE: i had already install but there is some exclamation remain in computer management like ? PCI device and ? sm bus controller

This is what we are here for: to help you. Now I will need some info. in order that we can make a duplication of your problem: Name of computer, Model number, MB ID and your story of what happened in detail, the more the better. To get the MB ID you have to play a little detective because it is hidden in between the white PCI sockets. The letters are so profound that you cannot miss it. If per chance they move the place, look at the upper right corner, around the RAM memory sockets. Thank you for considering our service...

I have the Board ASUS P5VDC-MX. And I wonder that there is no pci-e slot, but in the information there is written:"this board is pci-e (16x) ready".... is it right ? Can i use a pci-e (16x) video...

No, you can't use a PCIe x16 card in any of the slots on the P5VDC-MX board. A PCIe x16 card can't fit into the PCIe x1 slot. Attempting to force a PCIe x16 card into the PCIe X1 slot will break the card or bend the pins. A PCIe x1 card will work in a PCIe x4, x8 or x16 slot, though. Similarly, the AGP and PCI slots are not compatible with the PCIe x16 card design.

I wish that I had better news for you.

PCI response time too long


Found this info on another site, and it should help you out:

"you should try to manually define the IRQ for the PCI Slot where your Merging Card is in. Then, when you´re running Win2k, select "ACPI PC" and not "Uniprocessor PC" in the Manager "Computer"-section. Also set the Bios to NonPnpOS.
Those settings keep Windows from putting too much shared IRQs on your one. But be aware to select one, not used by the system. These settings gave me much more stability and speed than in auto mode." "try different slots, on every MB with more than 3 PCI Slots there is a sharing with the AGP-Slot and between to of the PCIs.
Also play around with the PCI Latency Timer in Bios" I can't take credit for it, but seemed very helpful. This was taken from THIS site (forums on Merging Technologies) If my solution does not help, I hope something on there can! --------------------------------------------- As for Tiger_Prince, You can download the Audio driver for your motherboard from from Asus's download page, in the "Please Select the Product ", first choose Motherboards, then in the next drop down choose Socket775, and in the final drop down choose P5GD2 Deluxe, then click search. When the new page loads, click on audio, then download the driver for your version of Windows. Hope I covered everybody!

I suggest XFX GeForce 8500 GT 512MB DDR2 PCI Express video card. No need for an upgrade & it has a lifetime warranty. The price is great! Your Asus P5VDC will run it. Here is the link:
