Could be many things.....You didn't say what Operating System you're on. So I'm going to assume it's Windows XP. First of all it could be that it's just muted. Goto START-CONTROL PANEL-Then goto SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICE tab or icon. Under the VOLUME tab, click on ADVANCED tab this will bring up another display box, make sure that there is no check mark in any of the boxes marked MUTE. If so, uncheck it, make sure the volume is up or at least not turned all the way down.

Secondly you want to make sure that you have your speakers connected in the ports to the sound card in the back of your PC correctly, and make sure that the volume is turned up as well on the speakers. Let us know how this turned out. Good luck.

My computer's audio not working proper

Do you ave the correct audio drivers loaded? What audio chip are you using? Windows default or Sound Blaster audio drivers usually work well. If you have some odd audio chip, you can install a sound blaster card or contact the manufacturer to download the correct drivers for your existing sound card.

Although I'm not familiar with that motherboard the usual way to disable the onboard sound is;
Enter the bios by pressing the Delete key or F2 when the machine starts to boot.
Go to the Integrated Peripherals section and find the On-Board line and change it to disable.
