Re: Sound

Had the same problem with more than one Asus Mb's. Wasn't able to turn off the intergrated sound. So when I tried to connect a PCI sound card & installed its drivers, the software wouldn't finish. Windows kept seeing a missing driver from the intergrated sound chip. Asus RMAed the board and replaced it with another.
This may be your problem.

You need to buy a separate sound card it is because your onboard sound card was damage and to able to have sound on your computer. Just buy a PCI Sound Card and that is a compatible sound card for your motherboard. To install your sound card on your motherboard follow this steps:
1. Insert the PCI Sound Card in the PCI Slot (White Slot).
2. Turn On your computer and wait if the computer are recognize the device. Then if the dialogue box was appear "Found New Hardware".
3. Insert the CD Driver in your CD-ROM.

So I just put speakers into my computer, the D865GLC and it says I don't have a sound card. Where can I get one, or download one?

In all probability you will have a soundchip on the board, but the drivers may not be installed. These usually use AC97 codecs, but you can get intels utility to check the correct drivers by using this link

IF there is no soundcard detected after that, the chip may be blown, in which case, I'd point you to a pci card which will fit in the white slots on your motherboard..a good retailer can sell you one from about £10.00 upwards

Can't hear sound

re-install drivers, if it works, ok otherwise check speakers on other system. if the speakers are ok, then the sound section of mother board might gone out of order, need an extra PCI sound card.

PCI device and SM Bus controller

Hi Hubert,

You need to go into the BIOS, just tap F8 on startup, and navigate to the sound settings, by using the arrow keys etc. Then press enter on that and it'll let you choose between PCI sound or the onboard sound. Choose PCI, press enter, Save to CMOS and Exit.
The sound should work now, provided you have installed the driver for the sound card.

Hope this helps

Since you tried setting up the mic through windows & that failed & you are sure the drive software is also installed correctly, than the onboard sound chip is defective & that can not be replaced.
One other place you can also check is within Device Manager. To get to device manager, right click once on my computer & slide down to & left click properties. Click the Hardware tab than click the device manager button. Scroll down to & click the + plus sign next to Sound, video and game controller. Do you see a yellow ! point anywhere? If yes your sound driver software needs to be reinstalled. If no than I'm back to you're sound chip is bad. The only way around it ( if you're board is out of warranty) is to buy a PCI sound card. Just so you understand, this is very common with all boards that have a built in sound chips. You're sound (from you're speakers), may still function. Again this is normal, but the mic function can also be bad.
I'll list a link for a replacement PCI sound card below.
There are some high tech cards here but you do not need a high tech card for Skype. Look towards the left upper side of the page & pick a card that will complement you're speakers. Ex: from 4.1 to 7.1 surround sound.

Good Luck!
If I can be of more service, just ask.
