Question about Motherboards

1 Answer

Soundproblem, Motherboard ASUS P5KR

I have a problem with the onboard sound. I only use 2 speakers and connect to the "line out"(lime/green) on the back of the board.

I tell the realtek software (came with the MB) that i use a system with 2 speakers.

The problem is that i only hear sound from the right channel, when connected to the "line out" !

If i use the output made for rear speakers and tell the software that i use at 8-channel system, i hear sound in both channel.

Is there a problem with the board, or am i do anything wrong ?

Best regards

    The speakers are powered (Altec Lansing Gateway2000 w/sub (the sub goes to the "sub out" on the MB or the "sub connection on the one speaker).

    I have not configured the jacks ! I have just bought and installed the MB / Software and have not made some special configuration. Regarding the manual (the way i read it !) i have to use the line out (marked green) when using with 2 speakers only, but as written - only sound in the right channel !



    PS: The balance parametres are OK !

Are they powered speakers? Try using the front panel headphone jack. The colored jacks under the 6.1 are configureable to be used by different speakers, like center channel, etc. Good luck in Vista or XP on a Vista MOBO.

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.

There is an inbuilt speaker but the sound is not coming


Hi gogovie_2,
There is only one speaker controller (C-Media 8738-MX), built into the P4B533 motherboard which is where you would connect a home speaker system into the lime green port located at the rear of the motherboard. (See your manual, page 1-7 for the motherboard layout & location of the line out jack for your speaker plug). See pages 1-8, 1-9 & page 1-10 for descriptions of each item shown on page 1-7.
The ASUS P4B533 MB usually comes with a small black speaker that plugs onto the motherboard. You can see the location for this speaker on page 2-33. Number 18 shows the configurations for the 20-pin panel & internal speaker.
This tiny speaker is used for system P.O.S.T. Known as Power On Self Test. During the boot up process a single beep will sound off. This tells you that the motherboard bios has passed P.O.S.T.
If you need the manual for the ASUS P4B533 motherboard you can download it directly from Asus. Click on the link below. Once the link has loaded type the model number, P4B533 in the search window (Upper right hand corner) & click the white arrow.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
Click on, " P4B533 related files for download ". The next window will want you to click the dropdown menu & choose your operating system. (Do so). Asus will display all drivers, manual & bios files for the P4B533 motherboard. If you download the manual you'll need Adobe reader to view the manual. You can download Adobe for free at this next link; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
If you do not have sound from your home speaker system make sure you have installed SoundMax/C-Media software. This program uses jack auto detecting censer software to help setup your speaker (s). You can also download the latest audio drivers.
If you think you need a new (Internal speaker) you can buy one from here; http://www.pcpartscollection.com/mosp.html
& from here;
http://www.anitec.ca/product/11692/generic_4_pin_speaker_for_motherboards/

Lastly, if the information provided here has not answered your question, please rephrase your question. I'm sure I can provide you with an answer & fix.

ASUS MOTHERBOARD P5B-MX WIFI WON'T DISPLAY


Are you sure the onboard video is working? Try an external card and see if this works. All the beeps when you remove the memory is good because you know the processor is working.Are you sure you have the right memory? Some machines won't boot or anything when you have the wrong memory.

Motherboard sound issues


Hi antlob,
Normally one would think something is wrong but if you look at page 2-23 in you're manual you'll see you're using the wrong plug-in (Lime green) (Rear). Plug you're spreaker jack into the
(Black sound out jack). See if that makes a differance?
To fine tune you're sound you can open Asus/RealTek sound effect manager listed in control manager. This program has connector sensing software & other goodies.

Enjoy!
