No sound device in Sounds and Audio Devices after Realtek Sound Driver install
Have a brand new ASUS M2A-VM mobo. Installed XP Pro SP3. After install there is no sound. Everything else works fine. I installed mobo drivers, lan drivers, and even the Realtek Audio device driver from the original mobo installation support disk. I've read where others have had the same type of problem but I've yet to find a solution. Please help

Re: No sound device in Sounds and Audio Devices after...
Download the attachment I found, unpack it into your folder of choice. Then move over to the control panel and select that "PCI Device". Rightclick and install the audio bus drivers I provided for the PCI Device. During installation Windows should find something like Microsoft UAA Bus driver, I don't know the exact name. Do a restart after installation and everything should work fine.

The Asus K8V-VM motherboard has an intergrated audio chip on the motherboard, Realtek ALC660. You need to enable it in the bios. If you do not have you're manual down load it from Asus; http://www.asus.com/Search.aspx?SearchKey=K8V-VM You'll also need Adobe reader installed to view the manual. Enter the bios menu. Open Advanced. See the top of page
2-21 in the manual. Set, High definition Audio to [Auto] Save and exit the bios. Also check out page 1-19. You can install the driver software from the Asus CD or download it from the Asus link provided above.
Realtek Audio Driver V18.104.22.16811 for Windows 2000/XP/XP 64bit. (WHQL)
Go to devise mgr and look at the sound hardware under sound, rt click on realtek and click on properties, look at driver, does it say windows or realtek,and check version and date,then go to realtek and see if the driver is the newest and the right one for your hardware.
That was great that you listed some info,but the wrong info,ex for OS, you should have listed the motherboard model #, you should post back the model# and what it said under driver,version,date of driver. Then someone can check to see if the correct driver is installed.
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.
You need thhe Microsoft UAA driver Download them for your O/S Uninstall any sound drivers then install the UAA drivers and reboot
If you have sound driver disk install drivers from it If not go to Device Manager and right click sound driver and Update it . it will go on net and find and install them When done give me a fixya please
Asus does have Updated software for, Realtek ALC883 Audio Driver V22.214.171.12404 for Windows 2000/XP & 64bit XP (WHQL).
There is also an update for the Bios which includes an Update Realtek PXE ROM to V2.08 dated 2007/12/4. To look at these updates & others click the link below. The link will open to your board with Linux opened. Just click, Latest or All at the top of the window. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=M2A-VM&type=map&mapindex=7
If the updates do not help remember your board is warranted for three years through Asus. You can call Asus Tech at: 812-282-2787. IL EST. It sounds to me that the onboard audio chip is going. I checked all FAQ's & found no complaints about the onboard sound.
Hope this helps & leads to a fix..
please vote... Luck!
