Question about MSI K9VGM-V Motherboard

5 Answers

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.

Bad on-board sound on this one?

Thanks.

    I also have no onboard sound. Within the sound devices item within device manager the Realtek HD Audio shows the yellow exclamation point. I've tried to right click on the properties of that device to update the drivers but it is not allowed. As a previous person wrote when you investigate further the system thinks there is no sound device attached. I have downloaded the latest drivers and tried to run from scratch with no luck. Ready to purchase a cheap sound card. Time is worth more than the aggrevation.

    Windows Media Player cannot play because there is a problem with the sound device. I installed the drivers through Device Manager and other ways several times, I've flashed the BIOS, I've reinstalled XP three times, no solution. Please help...



    This motherboard is a POS!!!

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

Download and run everesthome from this website. After you install and run the program

  1. go to the motherboard in the left tab and click on it
  2. click on chipset.
  3. In the right table click on southbridge.
this will identify the chipset that runs your sound.
  1. google that chipset for drivers or updates in your operating system.
If the updates do not clear the malfunction than most likely your on board sound chip is no good.

No sound output


You'll want to verify that the onboard audio is enabled within the bios first, beyond that the audio codecs for that mobo should be the Realtek AC97 drivers, go to this link to obtain them. You have a choice of two - the AC97 standard codecs or the HD codecs (I would probably try the HD codecs first). I would also be curious as to whether the audio hardware is showing up in the device manager at all (especially if it has the yellow exclamation point next to it).

Based on what you posted about a bios update being the catalyst I would definitely check the onboard audio enabled within the bios option first...

Please post a little more info (especially about what the device manager says) or your results from the reinstall of the AC97 drivers...

No sound. yellow (!) by audio driver in device mgr. error 10


Go to your device manager (windows key+break, device manager is on the left) and under "Sound, video and game controllers" will be "Realtek High Definition Audio" which has the yellow exclamation mark. Right click it and select uninstall. Reboot, and Windows should detect new hardware. If Windows doesn't automatically install the proper driver, the latest one can be downloaded from Realtek at the following link:

No Sound After Reinstall


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.

No Sound Device


Check your BIOS settings in the setup and make sure that the sound card isn't disabled.

If it is enabled and you are not getting any sound, you may have to get a PCI audio card to replace the mobo audio.

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.
