    I have the same problem with this motherboard on XP SP3 Home. Would installing a PCI NIC card help? I even bought new speakers but still no sound!! My old & new speakers work perfectly on my antique Windows 98 pc.

    2 days on the phone with Microsoft using remote didn't help either. I've spent weeks on this problem, looking for solutions.

    Thanks for any help I can get.

Hi Ivan,
That single beep you hear is called P.O.S.T. Power on self test, telling you the board is fine. Your sound not funicationg is another story. The onboard sound (ALC655/ALC658 from RealTech) Must be enabled in your bios. How to enter my bios?
At power on press the delete key every two seconds & the main menu for the bios will open. You know you are in the right place because the time 7 date settings are listed. The online manual does not show any detail for your bios settings so guiding you is not going to help me, help you. How to move around in your bios? (No mouse & thats normal). Look at the bottom of the screen for instruction on how to move about. You need to find Advanced (Heading). In side advanced you should be able to fine audio settings. Your audio must be set to Enable or On. Again look to the bottom of the menu for instructions on how to move about. After setting the audio to enable Save & Exit the bios. The PC will restart by its self.
After windows finishes loading you can load the Biostar CD into your CD-ROM. It's splash screen should load. Click Drivers & install your (ALC655/ALC658), drivers. You can also download the drivers from this link & click Run.

RealTech has another updated driver at this link. (Click on the link & it will load the web site). http://www.realtek.cz/download.php?realtek=ALC250

After installing the software restart your PC & check your sound.

If after running the install files & restart you find no sound, you will have to try installing directly through device manager.
And that's another story!
Give it all a go & post back here if you need more tweaking.

Luck!
Mike

There is a circuit on the motherboard that detects the ambient temperature of your computer. Your CPU fan has 2 speeds - if it detects the temperature inside your desktop getting hot, it will switch the CPU fan to hi-speed. If you removed the memory and powered on the computer and don't hear any Beep codes then you probably have a problem with the the motherboard and it needs to be replaced. disconnect cables to CD/DVDdrives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

Check for motherboard. use only 3 parts:

motherboard
PSU
CPU + COOLER

Connect your motherboard to PSU and see, if any LED light comes from motherboard. If LED is on, then try to turn motherboard on and see if cooler works.
Are case wires (power +, power -, hdd +, hdd -, reset+, reset -, power led+, power led - and speaker wire ) connected correctly?
Those wires look like this:


front-panel-headers-nsatmeh50lx5u1woeaeqllmn-4-0.jpgThis image is just reference.
If the power wire (sometimes called POWER SW) is not connected correctly, when you press the power button of case, PC just won't turn on.

If PC turns on and CPU fan spins, then try to add RAM, Graphics card and try again.
Next step is to hear BEEP sound. One short beep sound is normal, anything else is not normal and indicates the problem of the specific hardware according to the sound code. Sound code is BIOS dependent. In case ASUS A8V-E Deluxe, it is Award BIOS. Check below for Award BIOS beep codes

1 long, 2 shortIndicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information

1 long, 3 shortVideo card not detected __ (reseat video card) or bad video card

Beeps repeating endlessly __ RAM problem.

Repeated high frequency beeps while PC is running __Overheating processor (CPU)

Repeated beeps alternating high & low frequency ___Issue with the processor (CPU), possibly damaged
