Your sound driver is not installed thats why there is no sound. Install it if you have a CD Driver for your motherboard you have a built-in sound device or a separate CD Driver if you have a Sound Card. If you dont have, look for the brand name and model, the complete model of your motherboard ex.: ECS (brand), P4VMM2 (model). Next is search the internet for the website of the motherboard brand. If you found it, look for Support or Download/Drivers support. Choose the model of your motherboard and the drivers will appear. Sometimes it will ask for your Operating System. I hope this helps.

Go back to device manager. The devices that you see that have a problem. Right click on the device than un-install the device. You will need the motherboard's driver for these device. In order to find the correct device driver's I'll need the boards model number & any revision's. Than I can direct you to the correct download site. Above you state it's a Gigbyte. The more detailed information you post the better the driver.

No any sound

we're almost the same motherboard,if you are using Win XP, i recommend to use this tool, you can also update some of your drivers.

download this software : UPDATE MY DRIVERS
Registration KEY : JCCQ-MAKC-KACK-6TSE-BN35

Here's how it works.

* install the software and run the program after installation.
* if ask for Key registration, just enter this code : JCCQ-MAKC-KACK-6TSE-BN35
* Tick "Scan" to begin (it will detect all drivers that needs to be updated)
* click start to begin downloading (you can choose which driver you want to download)
* click "Install" and it will automatically install on your computer.

Don,t have sound and do not detect the sound at all Very frustrated

Open windows control panel. Open add-remove programs. Uninstall any sound driver software. (Reboot the system when finished). Download RegCure, its free (This will clean your windows registry). Click on the link below; (Re-start when finished).
Check your bios. Once your in the bios,
go to the Advanced menu. Open, Onboard Devices Configuration.
Check your settings against the manual. See page 2-24. Save & exit the bios. Boot your system.
Open windows device manager. Look for a yellow pair shaped icon with an ! point or an ? in it or an unknown PCI device. If you see any, you'll need to install the driver software from here.
Right click once on the device, (Like unknown PCI device). From the pop-up window that opens left click on, update driver. Load your Asus CD into your CD-ROM drive. (Follow, Hardware Update Wizard screens).
Point windows to the correct sound folder on the CD. Click on the correct folder so its high-lighted, than click OK. Windows will do the rest. When you first got the board the jumper settings for sound are set for AC97. See top of page 1-30.
If windows does not detect the sound device while in windows device manager, it is possible the onboard sound chip is defective. Asus warrants their boards for 3 years. You may need to call Asus for an RMA & send the board back. Call Asus tech first at, 812-282-2787 IL EST. M-F 8:00AM-4:00PM
Call, 510-739-3777 for RMA
Below is the link for your board;

Good luck!

In order to check that you have your Audio Driver installed for either your on board or ext card sound. Go to. Control Panel. Click on the System Icon. Then click on Hardware Tab. Then Device Manager. It'll show a list of you hardware spec. Check for Sound Devices. Then look to see if you've possibly a yellow exclamation mark. If you have when you right click with the option for properties it'll show the device isn't working. What i suggest is to. Right Click. Then Un-install. Then restart your computer. The software drivers should be with your operating system already. ( Though may be not though. Could be downloaded if not there ) When your computer restarts. It should display a bubble message saying that it has has found hardware & is installing driver software. When it has installed it should say. Your sound kit is working properly. If it doesn't do this perhaps the driver software arn't with your operating system. You'll need to find the drivers software from the Internet. You'll need the details. Thats given with device manager for the type of hardware spec your computer has. Then it just a matter of doing an Internet search for your driver software. Download this. Do a restart. Your computer shall detect this. Then it should install. Your Good To Go !

You now should have sound !

I dont have audio driver for my celeron pc.

To obtain audio drivers for your computer, the easiest way to get them is using windows update. If windows update does not detect it, then go to the manufacturers website and download the drivers from online. To do this, you will need the model number of your pc.Or you can go to Device Manager and check to see if your computer detects it.

You can open Device Manager by clicking on the 'System' icon in 'Control Panel', and choosing the 'Device Manager' tab.
It is also accessible by right-clicking on 'My Computer', selecting 'Properties', and selecting the 'Device Manager' tab.

After, look under audio or sound and see if there a a model number. If there is, then google it to obtain the drivers.

Hi zlasav, there are a few things that must be checked before checking within the system. Please check your speakers by connecting them onto another system or notebook. (Make sure they function). If you are using windows XP any version, open control panel. Once opened than open the icon, "Sound and Audio Devices". The sound & audio properties window will open. Left click the "Audio tab". Under Default device: it should show something like "AC'97". Than left click the "Voice tab". Under default device: it should show the same, AC'97. If nothing is listed than there is either a problem with your sound device driver or the AC97 may not be enabled in your bios. To check the settings in your bios. Shut down the system. Then power up the system & press the F2 key every two seconds until the bios main menu opens. Please see page 50 in your manual. Turn to page 63 & 64 make sure your, Audio device is set to [Enabled].
Open control panel & open the System icon. System properties window will open. Click once on the hardware tab, than click on the device manager button. Device Manager window will open. Scroll down to, "Sound, video and game controller". Click the "+" sign to the left of Sound, video and game controller. (If it is not all ready opened). There may be a yellow explanation point shown there. If there is, you will need to reinstall the sound driver software. Do not use the Shuttle CD to install the audio software. Left click on this link which will open Shuttle's web site to the driver download site for your MV43N motherboard.
Now create a folder on your desktop & name it AC97. Download the driver file named, (Audio Driver for MV43N (2155kB) & save it into the AC97 folder you created. The driver will be compressed & will need to be uncompressed into the AC97 folder. The compression software used by Shuttle is called Winzip. You can download Winzip for free at this site: Once Winzip is downloaded, install the program. Than uncompress the file, (Audio Driver for MV43N (2155kB), keeping it in the AC97 folder. Once that is completed it is time to reinstall the audio software from within windows device manager.
Instruction: How to install driver software from within device manager. Use the instructions above to open up device manager again.
Right click once on the yellow ! point & left click once on update driver. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). Click the green check mark once & it will go away.
Click the browse button, click the + sign next to my computer. Find you’re desktop folder AC97 & open it. Left click once on the folder named, Audio so it is high-lighted. Than click OK.
Windows will find the correct driver software & install it automatically. Once completed. Close all opened windows & restart you’re system. Test your audio. If you intend to use a mic, you will need to set this up through the Sounds audio devices within the control panel. If this does not fix your sound issue, than the onboard sound chip is defective. The only other option is to buy & add a PCI sound card in to an opened PCI slot on your motherboard.
If you have any questions or trouble just post it here.

Good luck zlasav!
Please take your time.
