This appears to be a pretty old motherboard. To start with, check the volume control near the clock in the right side of the taskbar. If there is an X look at why - it is possible your speakers aren't plugged into the right place (try the green plug). Or your volume may be turned down all the way on the speakers or the volume control or the mute might be selected (just uncheck it or move the volume slider a little bit).

If those easy things don't work, there is a driver for Vista for your motherboard, so that same driver should (but no guarantees) work for Windows 7 - make sure you know whether your OS is 32 or 64 bit - there are two easy ways to tell.

First, open an Explorer window using the folder icon in the Taskbar, and click the little triangle next to the C: drive. If there are two Program Files folders (one with x86) then you have 64 bit. If not, you have 32. The other way to tell is to go to the Control Panel, show Large Icons, and double-click System. It will tell you whether your OS is 32 or 64 bit.

Here is the link for the driver from Asus:

Be sure to download the correct driver. Install it and it should work. If it does not work, the sound card on the motherboard may be bad. It is also possible the audio portion of the motherboard is turned off in the BIOS setup program. Look in the Device Manager in the Control Panel under Sound, Video, and Game Controllers for a specific device such as Realtek High Definition Audio Device or something similar, or there may be something under Other Devices like 'PCI audio controller' or something to that effect.

If those are missing, try going into the BIOS setup program by rebooting your computer and right as you see the Asus splashscreen press the Delete key on your motherboard. Look under Advanced Options or something similar to see if the Audio bus is turned off - if it is then turn it on.

If nothing works, you should be able to get an add-on PCI sound card from a place like Newegg (I like Soundblaster cards) and install it.

I hope that helps!

I have ibm Thinkpad R52 notebook computer, when i instealed window 7 after that sound device is not working.

Go to this page:
When it loads up click on where it says audio near the top of the page and it will bring you down to the audio driver section.
In that section it shows you that anything more then windows XP and you need to run windows update to get that sound driver installed. Vista drivers will run on Windows 7. Windows 7 was made from the Windows vista source code which is why the drivers will work.
Click on Start and then All Programs, you'll see where it says windows update. Go ahead and click on it and then click on check for updates. It may ask you to enable updates. If it does then click on the button that says Turn on Automatic Updates. Windows will find the driver and it will install it for you.

I bought new seagate 500GB hard disk and installed windows 7.When i start my computer window loads and just before welcome screen it restarts.Sometimes my hard disk produce a sound and my computer...

You say the hard drive sometimes makes a sound. Are you saying an abnormal sound or the correct sound? If it makes an abnormal sound then send it back to the supplier for a replacement. If it makes the normal sound the reinstall windows 7 again and see what happens. You also do not say if you have loaded any drivers? if not do not use those from the motherboard disk but download them from the manufacturers site. Start with the chipset drivers, then graphics then sound then network and the rest dont really matter.Next go to windows update and install all the updays inc SP1. hopefully now your pc will work just fine.

Hi, i got a Sansui notebook pc, model no. MIM 2170. I've loaded windows 7 and i'm looking for sound and video drivers..... plz assist

Check the soundcard make and the video card make.

Right click on 'Computer' select 'Properties'.

'Device manager'

Scroll down the list that appears and click on Sound. Then properties.

Click to 'update drivers'. It should find drivers that work.

Do the same for video card.

If above does not find correct drivers, go directly to the manufacturer's website and download from there.

Sansui may not support Windows 7 as is, so you'll need to try and error to get it working properly.

I buy this notebook 5 year before and that time window xp was installed but now i install win 7 and problem is that my sound card is not working now, pls tell me from where i can install the suitable sound...

Hi, the problem is that your system wasn't designed for Windows 7. You could try the Packard Bell website and down load the latest driver, even its not for Windows 7. Or try the Realtrek AC'97 sound driver, its free to down load from a google search. Your other potenial problem is that you will need minimum of 2Gig of memory to run Windows 7.

I want sound drivers of Asus k8v-mx for windows 7

You won't get any,too old. You can go to realtek's site with your chipset number & see if they have a beta driver. Or you can buy an aftermarket sound card. Lastly, you can just install 7 & it should load a driver that works. Did it on an older Dell Dimention, worked fine with default drivers.

Windows 7 driver problem

I installed windows 7 on my computer and I actually was able to load the vista driver for my hardware.

If your motherboard has a vista driver available for the sound, try that and see if it works. If it doesn't then you know that the motherboard won't fully support windows 7.

ASUS p5gl-mx sound problem on Window 7

You're motherboard has the following audio chipset:
SoundMax ADI AD1986A. There is no specific Windwos 7 audio driver for your motherboard yet, but any Windows 7 compatible driver for the AD1986 will do.

I found a Vista driver on the Asus site which should be compatible, although I didn't check it myself (since I don't use Win7 yet). The download link is on this page:

Yeah, the page loads very slow, but whenever it's there, download & try the "ADI AD1986A Audio Driver v6.10.01.6070" driver.
