Hi naveenraj, listed below is the link for your board through Asus.
Suggest you add this link to your favorites.
I'm betting that the driver file software on your Asus CD has the same date as listed above within Audio. Click the pulse + sign next to Audio & it will open.
We need to check two places within your PC.
First click the start button & slide up to & open control panel. Than double left click on the Sound and Audio Devices icon.
Once opened click on the Audio tab. Next under, Sound playback is Default device. Write down the name of the device
(If one is listed). Than click the Voice tab, here again under Default device write down the name of the device. (If listed).
Both devices should be named the same. Close that window by clicking Cancel. Next while still in control panel open the System icon. Click the hardware tab, than click the device manager button. Scroll down to & click once on the plus + sign next to, Sound, video and game controllers. (It will open if it's not already opened).
Do you see a yellow ! point? If that's a yes than for reasons not known the sound driver software did not install correctly.
Rather trying to reinstall by using the sound software's setup.exe file we will do a more direct method of installation.
Right click once on the yellow ! point & left click once on update driver. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). Click the green check mark once & it will go away. (Put your Asus CD into your cdrom drive. Wait for the splash screen to open).
Once it has opened close the window.

Back in the Hardware Update Wizard window click the Browse button. Another window will open. (Brows For Folder). Click the + sign next to My Computer. Scroll down to the Asus CD & click the plus + sign to open the CD.
Look for the driver folder & click the + sign to open. Find the Audio folder & click it once so the folder is highlighted. Click the OK button. The sound driver software should start to install. Once finished, close all opened windows & restart your PC. Turn on your speaker's.

After windows has finished loading completely open windows media player & play a song, turn up the speaker volume. Do you hear the music? If you still have no sound. Follow the above instructions to check the device manager for that yellow ! point.
If it is still there than your integrated sound chip is bad. That can not be repaired. Asus warrants your board for three years. Your board is out of warranty. You can buy a PCI sound card & install it into an opened (White), PCI slot. Any one of these card cards will do. Click the link.

Have more questions, feel free to ask.
Good Luck!

Need audio


The SR1820NX is powered by a 2.2GHz Athlon 64 3400+ CPU. The Asus A8N-LA Nagami motherboard features the integrated GeForce video and eight-channel audio.
The Asus A8N-LA Onboard audio or audio card :
  • Built-in Azalia 8 channel audio
  • Realtek ALC883 8-channel High Definition Audio CODEC
So you want the Realtek High Definition Audio Driver R2.11, which has support for ALC883. You can find it here:

and the Vista one is here:

Hope this helps
