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.

Download the Microsoft UAA drivers uninstall all other sound drivers then install the UAA ones and reboot Go to device manager and upgrade sound driver will go on net and if possible find and install them. Worked on my compaq presario.and a lot of other computers with on board sound
Sometimes you may install other drivers that you system may recognise but not identify with. ensure that that the drivers are correct and that you soung ouput device is plugged iinto the correct socket. Also make sure that your sound device is enable in the device manager in your control panel and that you system volume is on and up. If these dont work then your sound device could be damage, best option then is to install a pci sound card and your problems will be solved. let me know how you go. thanks
