No Sound Just got this board, and I'm using windows XP... I've updated my bios, un-installed and reinstalled fresh sound drivers (realtek ac97) and made sure it was enabled in my bios but I have been unable to get any sound. I don't know what to try!

    Thanks map9966, Apparantly the drivers are unsigned for windows, and I could not get them to work correctly on XP or Vista; it is an old board. My Asus a8r-mvp died on me and I have had this in a box in the closet for a few years. :P The only solution that worked was to get a different card. Supposedly there is a version of the drivers out there that do still work with windows but I was unable to find it.

Hay Jay.
Try this, download the latest driver for your board. Save the updated driver in a folder on your desktop & name the folder reltec or what ever name you want to give it. You will need to uncompress the .zip file. Click the link & download file.

Uninstall your current driver, (yes I know you did this once before). This time your going to install it differently.
Once the file is uncompressed re-start your system.
When windows has finished loading open device manager.
Scroll down to Sound, video and game controller till you see the yellow ! point. Right click it once & than left click update driver.
Windows will open Hardware Update Wizard, click No, not this time than click next, than choose, Install from a list or specific location, click next. Remove the check from the box Search removable media. Than click browse. Point to the folder you created on your desktop & the floder within. Pick the correct folder & install the newer driver. When finished re-start windows.

After windows finishes loading go back to device manager & check that the new driver installed. If you still have no sound than the intergrated sound chip on your board is defective.
You can return the board or add a PCI sound card.

I want sound driver of MSI 865GVM3-V Motherboard for windows 7................plz help me


Drivers like, Lan, Audio, Intel INF Drivers, etc.. readily came packed with Windows 7 O.S. but the chipset drivers (Graphics driver included) isn't available for this model for windows 7 (Click Here for details).

You can run "windows update" from the Internet Explorer from the system where this motherboard is installed. Open Internet Explorer, click "Tools" and select "Windows Update" and follow the onscreen instructions, {Note: this should be done when the system is On and the internet is running}. Since Lan driver is readily installed on Windows 7, you need not to reinstall Lan driver, you can run the internet connection without any problem.

Another option is "Msi Live Update", download the application here (click here) and run the program from the system where this motherboard is installed. [Open the above link and click on one of the names of the areas "Europe" or "U.S." or "Asia"].

These are all what you can deal with this.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

No sound in windows XP. Device Mgr. says all devices are enabled and working." Audio and Sound" says 'No Device." I tried " Install new hardware," but it says all devices installed and enabled. Dell...


Need to know your laptop model?
Download drivers from dell or the manufacturer of the sound card/mainboard. As you install these the No device should vanish and it should start working. Also try windows update...custom install...optional updates .look for sound drivers like AC97 or realtek, if they are listed select them and try that.

No audio


Your machine should use the Realtek HD codecs or the AC97 codecs. Should the AC97 HD codecs not work try the standard codecs. Windows update can sometimes create the problem you're experiencing - a reinstall should do the trick.

Realtek AC'97 driver


Before installing the AC97 software drivers, open System than click the Hardware tab than click Device manager. Scroll down to Sound, video & game controllers. Do you see a yellow ! point? If so than your drivers do need to be reinstalled. I could send you to Asus's site but they are a bit out dated so go here for updated drivers. The first one listed under Description will do just fine.
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=23&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false
When you open the sound, video & game controller find AC97 & uninstall by right clicking on AC97 & uninstall. Only the AC97, leave the rest alone. Restart the PC than install the new drivers that you saved to your hard drive.
Check driver installed by opening controll panel than open Sound & Audio Device icon. Under Audio tab Realtek AC97 should be listed than click the Voice tab & the same should be listed.
Test both Audio & Mic functions. If either fail your intergrated controller could be defective. Lets hope everything works fine.

No sound/audio device recognized


Tell you what, try the new High defenition audio drivers from Realtek. it's available on their homepage. That's been a big problem, due to the lack of information (can you beleve that!) from Realtek. HD drivers are preparation for windows of as the name sais High Defenition sound. After that normaly windows (XP) gets everything done by itself.
