Question about ASUS A8V-E Deluxe Motherboard

1 Answer

Possible sound card problem?!

Have a 2½ yr old system, ASUS A8V-E Deluxe with onboard sound card, running XP Pro. In the last month or so I thought my speakers had blown--the sound has become scratchy all the time with any music files and anything online. I purchased new speakers today but the sound issue is still there. Is it worth getting a new sound card or shd I have this diagnosed by a pro? I'm sure I could install a sound card but if that's not the problem don't know where else to look. I've been using pc's for years but still consider myself pretty much of a novice when it comes to hardware issues. Hope you can help! Thanks, Debbie

Re: Possible sound card problem?!

To the best of my knowledge this could be a sound card driver problem. Try updating your sound driver. If that doesn't work uninstall the driver and get the updated version on the net.

If your not sure how to do this come back and let me know.

I have missed the motherboard Cd for my A8V-VM SE with AMD processors so which are the drivers are to be loaded so as to detect the sound card and VGA

Download the drivers you need from Asus;
Realtek Audio Driver and VIA Onboard VGA Driver.
Once the site above loads you'll need to click on the drop down menu and click on you're operating system.

Thats it!
Good luck

A8v deluxe have no sound after rebuild of system, have try different driver and update but still no sound

Did you checked the bios setting for your audio? It should be set to Auto. See the Advanced tab in bios, onboard Devices Configuration section 4.4.4 page 4-23 in your manual. On the other hand if you open windows device manager and within Sound, video and game controller you see either unknown PCI device or a yellow pair shaped icon with an ! point in it, than you'll need to install the audio software through windows device manager. Make sure your Asus driver CD is loaded into your CD-Rom drive. Open windows device manager again. Right click once on the unknown PCI device and left click once on update driver. Follow the on screen prompts. Point windows to the CD. You may need to open the driver folder on the CD and click on it once so it is high lighted. Than click OK. The audio driver software should install. If this fails to fix your issue than the onboard audio chip is defective. You can not repair this.
If your MB is still in warranty (Asus 3yr). You can RMA the MB.

Happy holidays!

Can I use a Amd athlon 64x2 dual core processor 4200+ 2.2 ghz on my A8V deluxe motherboard . socket 939


Yes, according to the Asus website specifications on the A8V Deluxe you are able to run the CPU. You just have to make sure that the CPU you buy is for Socket 939 and not AM2.

Please rate!

I have bios version 1008 on the computer. Should i update the bios version to the newest one? The fans are always running, they never shut down

Actually if your MOBO are working fine as of now no need to update the BIOS version. Updating BIOS version may affect some parts of MOBO so no need to update the BIOS version.

For ASUS A8V-MX Motherboard which graphics card should use

This Motherboard has onboard VGA, but if you want to upgrade the expansion slot is a AGP. so you will have to purchase a AGP VGA card. ATi or Nvidia would be good enough.

Video on an asus A8V-E deluxe motherboard

When you rightclick on MY COMPUTER then choose MANAGE, in the device manager, do you have another display controller appearing? if so, then you only have to install the drivers you've got with your new card, then in DISPLAY from the control panel, you will have to go to the SETTINGS tab and lightly move the second diplay then it will ask you if you want to activate it.
if there is no other display controller in the DEVICE MANAGER you should try to reboot and access the bios in witch you will found an option for selecting the first display controller to be used. so, choose PCI, and save, then reboot.
