Re: audio - does nowrking / forgot pin settings

Your sound for this board is intergrated or known as part of the motherboard. It must be enabled in the BIOS. To get to your bios. During power up on the PC press the F1 key or Delete key ever couple of seconds. Some PC's require you to press other keys to get into the bios like F10 or F2 Use your manual to help guide you through the bios.
If you have a standard set of external speakers, one wire end colored Green, plugs into the back of your PC into the green hole for sound output. The pink colored hole is for a mic. If your bios is set to enable & you still have no sound output reinstall your sound drivers. Your sound drivers can be found on the link below:

Compaq presario V6406 TU audio driver

Hi Darshak,
Did Compaq send you to this site; (Windows Vista drivers).

Conexant High-Definition Audio Driver. If this fails to install or card is not recognized, make sure the settings in the bios for sound is enabled. If it is than the only other possibility is the sound chip has gone bad. (This can not be repaired, only refurbished).
Chances are the laptop is warranted for at least one year. You need to check on that. Compaq will not let you know this unless you ask. Check your recipt date.

Good luck Darshak!
Thank you for using fixya.

Hi nrls14, it can get pretty confusing with Gigabyte.
Go to page 9 in your manual or Pg 13 if using Adobe Reader. Motherboard layout. If you download the manual which is in pdf format you'll be able to enlarge the manual which will help you to see everything much better.
Download manual from here:
This is the English manual. (Downloading from china is a faster site).
Find SUR_CEN located between PCI slots 2 & 3 on the motherboard. Than go to pg 32 in manual or pg 36 in pdf. Set the pins SUR_CEN. Set a jumper over pins 1&2 & 5&6.
Front Audio Connector, leave a jumper across pin 5&6 & 9&10 (Default). On page 22 in manual, pg 26 pdf. Follow Method1:
Instructions. (Test your speaker system). You may need some tweaking & this can be done with the software included on the Gigabyte CD by installing the sound effects manager. Go to page 78 in your manual or pg 82 in pdf. Page 80 in manual, pg 84 in pdf. For six channel 5.1 sound. If you decide to use the Advanced 6 Channel Analog Audio Output Mode (using Audio Combo Kit, Optional Device). Follow the instructions on page 81 in manual or pg 85 in pdf. (Do not let the picture on pg 81 spook you). Pg 81 shows a set of pins not located in-between the two PCI slots. You make this connection by removing the two jumpers on SUR_CEN & plug in the SURROUND-KIT on to SUR_CEN pins. Lastly, both motherboard manuals are the same for the GA-7N400 & the GA-7N400 Pro.

Good luck nrls14!

Your problem is that you still dont install the driver or the driver which you installed its codec is not compatible - go to google and search for the actual driver for your operating system download it and install it - Check which company chipset is on your motherboard whether its realtek or sigmatel search with information over the small audio chip then easy to find the actual driver set.

for one, muicrophone should be plugged into the audio in jack, usually its Pink or has an arrow pointing towards the center of little waves meaning audio in.

If the board is damaged and it just doeant work, go get a Sound card from wallmart, they are pretty cheap, get the Creative 24 bit sound card, i have one and it works great for everyday stuff like this. install it, run the install disk, and make sure you swithc your sound settings from the onboard to the new Audio card. It under START>SETTINGS>CONTROL PANEL>SOUND AND AUDIO DEVICES ( double click). Under the Audio Tab it will have a drop down box to select the audio card or the regular system board audio.
