No sound from onboard audio.

I have a pc chips p13g+ motherboard, and I can't get any sound from the onboard audio. I've installed the correct driver for it and have powered speakers plugged in, but still nothing. Is there anything I'm missing?

Good day sir/maam, check out first the system if there are installed onboard audio. In windows goto start, rigth click my computer, goto properties, hardware, device manager. Check the sound, video and game controller. If you dont see any question marks, check out your motherboards audio port, there are usually 3, green for the 2channel audio, blue for the line in/4channel audio and pink for the mic/6channel audio. You can use the blue one as long as you enable 4channel audio.

How to disable onboard sound on the ASUS P5QPL-AM Motherboard ? Can't seem to find it in the bios... Installed a soundblaster but there's no sound.

Have you installed the Soundblaster drivers? Have you plugged your speakers in to the soundblaster outputs? When you install a discrete card (graphics or sound) it bypasses the onboard chips. You could also try the audio settings in the control panel.

Can i replace the audio chip?

No, at least I wouldn't recommend it.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit.

The mounting of an audio chip uses a style of surface mount.
Ball Grid Array.

Referring back to the older Processor's, they used pins on the bottom.
These pins mated up to socket holes in the processor socket.

With a BGA surface mount there are no pins.
Solder balls take the place of the pins.
The motherboard has matching copper pads for mating the solder balls.

The chip is set correctly in place on top of the copper pads, and the chip is then properly heated until the solder balls melt, and solder the chip to the copper pads.

It would be Much easier to just install a Sound Card.
The Sound Card can be installed in any available PCI or PCI-E x1 slot.

Gateway 506GR motherboard,

Click on Components in the list.
On this page scroll down to the Motherboard heading, and click on -
102007 - Intel (Ausberg) No CPU Motherboard R0

Now click on - Specifications

To the right of the Add-n Cards heading we can see,

1) The motherboard has two PCI expansion slots. {Two PCI Conventional bus connectors)
These expansion slots are White in color.

2) One PCI-Express x1 slot.
(One PCI Express x1 bus add-in card connector)

View of Gateway Intel (Ausberg) motherboard used in a Gateway 506GR desktop computer,

Scroll down towards the bottom of the page, and view the motherboard photo, and matching chart underneath.

Z1 points to the two long White PCI slots.
Z points to the shorter Black PCI-E x1 slot.

When the Sound Card is installed one of the expansion slot covers will have to be removed.
(Expansion slot area is shown as D in this rear view, )

You may want to just use a Sound Card, that has basically the same specifications as the OnBoard audio you had before, (Integrated Audio), or you may wish to upgrade your sound system a bit with a better Sound Card, and be able to use satellite speakers, and a woofer.

My motherboard P13G, can't support DDR PC3200 ( 400 mhz ) how the problem ?

If i've got the right board, you have Nvidia chipset and graphics? I can't find, so far, what socket it is. What exactly is the problem with the card and I need to know what processor you're using because it makes a huge difference. Let me know through "add a comment".

Speakers doesnt play

check the motherboard manual and see if it requires a jumper to enable the audio onboard ( if so get the jumper from your motherboard box and seat it on the correct jumpers in the correct position to enable onboard audio ( assuming its onboard audio that you are using ) If not then ensure your sound card is seated firmly and install the correct drivers ( for either the onboard audio or the dedicated sound card ) and then ensure that the speaker cables are connected to the correct connectors on the sound card ( whether onboard or not ) and make sure windows audio is not muted for any of the auxilary lines ie wave etc and if its realtek ensure that you have 2 speakers selected in the HD Control panel and not head phones.

Sound not working properly

Hi ragnar590,
Please go over pages 5-12 to 5-17 in your manual.
Allow Realtek's auto jack-sensing software to detect your sound jack. If this software is not installed, install it. (Double check your speaker system by plugging into another PC). If after doing all this & you still have intermittent sound, either the jack coming off the board is bad or the onboard sound chip is bad. The Asus P5ND2-SLI was made in 2005 & is no longer in warranty. You can also try setting up the front panel audio coming off the board if your case has front or side audio/mic jacks. See page 2-31 in your manual.
It this options works than the problem is with the rear sound jack.
If this does not give you sound than the audio chip is the problem. Suggest you buy a PCI sound card & disable the onboard ALC850 within the bios.

Good luck ragnar590!

Might be that the chip is bad, make sure that nothing is muted in your volume control also check that digital doesnt have a check on it. some times when digital has a check it wont let you hear anything.

NO Sound - 865PE Neo2-PFS Platinum Edition

You need to install the correct version of the sound drivers from the MSI website under your motherboard type. Third party or from Realtek sound drivers won't make you sound chip works. If after installing sound drivers from MSI website still don't work then your on board sound chip colud be defective.
