About sound card

I m running Windows XP Service Pack2 with in built sound card on the motherboard. The problem is my system does not display sound every time the computer starts. Sometimes sound properties in Control Panel is disabled then I cannot move the slider of the volume. Also whenever it shows the sound properties I cannot hear the sound after increasing the volume full. My speakers are alright and drivers are up to date still I don't know what is the problem. I had also reinstall Windows XP still there is same problem. Details are :
Intel(r) 82801AA AC'97 Audio Controller
Manufacture: Intel
Driver Provider: Microsoft

Kindly solve my problem.

    Thanks for reply. Here is motherboard model.
    Motherboard Name A-Trend ATC-7401M

    Motherboard Chipset Intel Whitney i810E



    Whenever I had installed Windows XP on my system it automatically accepts drivers for graphics and sound but now sound is not working.I have a motherboard CD and I had installed graphics,sound driver etc but it does not show my sound . Also whenever it shows the sound properties I cannot hear the sound after increasing the volume to the full.

    I also think this is the only solution .
    Please tell me the procedure how do I disable the on-board sound card.
    Also tell me which sound card is best according to my motherboard 810E.

  • Sibworld Mar 14, 2008

    As you have said before I had installed new internal sound card at PCI slot and disabled the on board audio.
    My new audio is :
    Audio Adapter Yamaha DS-XG Audio CODEC

    Now the problem is that when I play music,movies it plays for few minutes say 4 minutes and then there is no sound from the speakers. Also Windows Media Player is not playing any audio flies and it hangs after some time.
    When I restart the computer the sound comes and then again after few minutes sound goes away.

Some systems do a speaker autodetect - and if your speakers are not powered on when the system boots, the sound may not function until a reboot

Another possible issue could be due to bad drivers that sometimes load, and sometimes not. I usually find that Microsoft's drivers are less than ideal, and in many cases just may not work. And onboard sound may not work properly if the chipset drivers are not loaded as well. Did the machine or motherboard come with a CD? If so, put it in and let it run to install all of the drivers. If not, we need to determine the exact model of motherboard to find where we can download the drivers from. On the motherboard there should be either a model number and version silkscreened onto the board itself, or a label, generally with a bar code as well as numbers. Sometimes this label is on the board itself, and sometimes it can be on top of one of the headers for USB or the parallel port if it has one. Post these numbers or any other model information you can find.

    Your original post indicates that the sound driver is from Microsoft, and I thought that may be the issue. However, I now have found quite a few people who are having the same type of sound problem with their Intel motherboard based 810E computers. So the best solution might be to disable the on-board sound (let me know if you need instructions to do that and I'll provide them), and put a PCI sound card into a free slot on the computer. This will almost certainly work, and you will also get better audio sound!

    To disable the on-board sound, you have to enter the bios when the machine first starts up. On most standard motherboards you press the "Del" key, though some use the F2 or F10 key. When you turn the computer on, the first text only screen you see should list the key on the bottom, if the Del key is not the one.

    Once in the BIOS, the sound is usually listed under the "Intergrated Peripherals" section. Just set it to disabled, save your settings and exit.

    You can probably get a decent Soundblaster sound card for $25 or less at any local computer store. You can also order from the web, for example, here's one at Newegg for $19:

Audio driver installation failed from mother board cd


The most common solution was this: open device manager click "system devices" disable "microsoft UAA bus driver for high definition audio" uninstall "UAA bus driver" make rescan devices (Note: Not all had this step. You may want to skip it.) D.W. install realtek driver the realtek driver includes the UAA driver too.Hope this helps.
