Question about EliteGroup NFORCE4M-A Motherboard

No sound/audio device recognized

I've been trying to get the sound on this board working for a while now. I've downloaded all the most up-to-date drivers for the RealTek AC97 audio and still no audio device is detected on my Sound and Audio Devices Properties in the control panel. I've also checked the status of the sound in the BIOS and the AC97 peripheral is set to Auto. There are only two options for the AC97 available: Auto and Disabled. I'm completely lost on this...please help!!! I would like to avoid buying a new sound card if I can get this issue resolved. Thanks!

Tell you what, try the new High defenition audio drivers from Realtek. it's available on their homepage. That's been a big problem, due to the lack of information (can you beleve that!) from Realtek. HD drivers are preparation for windows of as the name sais High Defenition sound. After that normaly windows (XP) gets everything done by itself.

Hi whitco0313,

A corrupted or missing audio driver can cause this problem. You can try to do a System restore back to the earliest date that it worked fine. If this doesn't help, you need to check out Dell website and download the audio driver compatible for your laptop model and operating system version.

I hope this helps, please inform me if this resolves your problem or not to check for other resolution that we could try. Thank you.

No sound coming out of the speakers

This sounds like a driver or settings issue. Go into control panel and open up the sound and audio devices control. Go to audio and make sure that the proper sound card is selected for playback and recording. If you don't see your card listed in the drop down menu, try reinstalling drivers for your sound card or Sometime the driver might be for different version of windows. I've seen vista driver install properly in winxp, but no sound. Either that sometime it's the OEM driver provided by the chipset/soundchip manufacturer but differ from the one supply by board. Maybe the board manufacturer implemented a special design, thus the OEM default driver will not work. Other than that, it could also be the version conflict with another driver. Say your sound card driver is the older one, but you've updated your chipset driver to a newer one since your last install. The old sound card driver might not be compatible with the new chipset driver and so on.

Try download a full set of drivers for your system, that way you're sure all your driver is up to date
