Asus P5K-e Wifi/AP audio to drive surround speakers

Greetings!

I am trying to set up 5.1 channel surround sound with the on-board audioof Asus P5K-E / Wifi AP motherboard. The audio chip on this motherboardis Analog Devices AD1988B. I am using speakers (2-front, 2-rear and acenter - no subwoofer) from an old AIWA music system.

I've reached a point where I can hear test sounds from all the 5 speakers. However, my problem is, the volume on the front center speaker is really low.

I am wondering if the on board audio hardware is powerful enough todriver the speakers directly. Although the front-left and front-rightspeakers sound pretty good. The sound on two rear speakers is slightly low too, but is acceptable.

Anyone having similar problems? Any ideas?

If it is of any significance, the system runs Ubuntu 9.04 OS. The problem occurs even if I switch to Windows XP Pro.

Thanks,
Mahesh.

Since the left and right speakers sound pretty good, there is no problem with the driver software, the problem is in the sound system itself. be sure to have your sound system be check by a professional technician

Probably the Audio output socket is worn. They consist of a number of small sprung leaves and these can weaken over time.

P5k-e front pannel audio not working


Make sure you check that the front audio cable is connected properly on your motherboard. You can see how it's supposed to be hooked up and where it is located on page 2-32 in either of the manuals I have linked up for you below. And if you haven't already make sure you have the correct audio driver installed.

click start control panel hardware and sound manage audio devices right click on your speaker select configure speakers

right click on the speaker icon in the bottom taskbar you will see an array of options select playback devices make sure it has a green tick and the correct speakers are selected

Raid sys on p5k/epu


You are correct. The Asus P5K does support SATA RAID configuration. Page 4-14 in the user manual.
Congifuration [Enhanced]. Only real option is IDE. That does not mean the SATA drives will run like an IDE. The SATA's will function faster. In order to get RAID function you would need to have bought the Asus P5K Deluxe. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P5K%20Deluxe/WiFi-AP&SLanguage=en-us

Setup powering down after 5 minutes of being on.


Enter you're bios & head to CPU section. There should be a section to check CPU & motherboard tempture. Sit back & watch the temp settings. (Check for over-heating which can & will shut down the system). It's best to do this with the case closed. Normal operation.
Did you add thermal grease between heat-sink & CPU. Same can happen if memory over-heats.

Trouble with Speaker 5.1 +Vista + Asus P5k Motherboard. No Rear Speaker sound


Hi Perseo,


If you run through a speaker test in windows, and hear playback from all 5 speakers and the subwoofer, then your system is correctly connected, and working properly.

Vista uses a layered sound system that renders sound a bit differently than what you're used to on your previous system. As a result, it will most often refuse to project stereo sources in 5-channel surround, on it's own. it will just play them as stereo, and the bass will fill in whenever it can.

One possible way you could use to get around this, is to force the system to use all 5 speakers, through the driver. If you're using a realtek onboard card anything like mine (I have a p5k-VM board myself), this can be done by opening up the HD Audio Manager, and selecting the "Speaker Fill" option, under the Speaker Configuration" tab.

another option would be to load your media player you use to play music or movies, and see if there's an option to change speaker settings within the programs.

hope this helps!
