1. Downloaded the latest driver from from the Downloads and Drivers section.2. Uninstall the Driver from either the Control Panel (Sound Max) or by going to the Device Manager and rightclicking the driver and Uninstall.3. Restart the Computer.4. Install the Driver downloaded.
If the above does not work
a) Faulty hardware is not allowing driver to be installed and sound to come out.b) Corruption in Windows, that would require a new reformat of PC.

Intel D865GBF, having sound-max, is not giving signal to speakers. While using sound-max wizard mic input signals are shown, but there comes no sound in speakers while testing it...

Goto the your Start button, control settings, sound, click advanced, make sure your mic is not muted, and the proper input is selected(usb, or however you mic is connected.) Make sure you get levels here when talking or tapping the mic lightly. Sound max should work if this is set correctly.

I don't know if you manually erase those drivers, but I recommend you reinstall the drivers with the setup option, then uninstall them, again reinstall them ans see if work, or depending the OS if is Xp or Vista, ?
