K9VGM-V Mobo, AMD 6400+, Realtek ALC883 on-board sound, XP Service Pack 2
No sound. Enabled BIOS, latest drivers. Device Manager has no exclamation points, but opening up "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers" to the "Realtek HIgh Definition Audio" tab reveals no "Properties" sub-tab. Plus, unable to uninstall driver for a bootup to try again, it says the system "may be using it for startup" (Huh?). Going into "Sounds and Audio Devices" in Control Panel, the "Volume" tab is grayed out, saying "No audio device detected."
I have another machine with an identical board, and identical configuation, which works perfectly.
This board seems to have an issue after installing 4gb of ram after swapping out 1gb of transcend ram and installing 2x 2gb kingston the audio device disappears, swap the ram back and the problem goes away, to further complicate things it seems that kingston and transcend ram doesn't play nice together in this board having one of each results in no post and a ram related beep code as of yet I have not been able to produce the bios settings to allow the two sticks to play nice together maybe somebody else can help out on this one!
So either lose a stick of ram or install a sound card and have your system become considerably unstable
I had the same problem it turned out that my old sound drivers were still on my harddrive and it caused a conflict, what i did.right clicked my computer / properties / hardware tab / device manager / opened up my sound video and game controllers and deleted media controller and all files relating to sound codecs and drivers i then switched off pc then restart it, it detected new hardware and installed the drivers again from off the disk that came with the motherboard, and it worked perfectly hope this helps

Sometimes the on-board audio is turned off in BIOS by default. Reboot, enter setup and see if it is enabled. If not turn it on, and it then should be in device manager. Also, go to intel's website, and download the latest drivers for your motherboard for the audio (and the rest for that matter) once it shows up.
Try updating your bios to latest revision then using the windows update with it set to get updates other than mmicrosoft products (like microsoft update used to do instead of windows update in XP) this may work. Seems to with alot of the older boards i build systems with
Have you Reset you BIOS,because after you build a machine up,the Bios has to be set to Default,and were you grounded with a arm band when you put the parts together?,During the assembly it is paramount that you wear a grounded arm band so that your body electrical discharge does not interfere with the components,you probably have a hardware/software conflict.some thing in the BIOS is most likely left on.or set to hardware.
I have been working on this for months and finally got everything including front audio panel going. First Download the latest realtek audio drivers available from intel's website or go here and download #3 http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=2839&OSFullName=Windows%2A+XP+Home+Edition&lang=eng&strOSs=45&submit=Go%21. Next goto control panel and add/remove programs then look for realtek audio drivers that have been previously installed. Remove program if one is found. Then go to device manager (right click my computer, go to properties, Then hardware, then device manager. Click on the"+" in front of system devices. Find "microsoft uaa bus driver for high defintion audio". Right click that and select, "disable". Then right click it again and "unintstall" the device. This will allow you to install the audio drivers on your disc, or ones you have downloaded to install without an error message. Once done install your audio drivers and restart your PC and windows should start dectecting your new hardware. An installation wizzard pops up. Install the files needed yourself from a specific location, not a disk. It will ask for location of file name "hdaudbus.sys". That file is in C:/Windows/System32 folder. If it's not there, which it should be, just find and download that one file but it should already be there. I have done all this on xp home ed, sp3. I now have sound, and my front audio panel works.
