Why sound is not installing in my computer

Argghhh! need to configure your sound driver to work through the correct hardware you wish to use! (The best driver(s) for that require installation (or, reinstallation), if necessary.)

Are you using the onboard motherboard ports? HDMI-cable digital sound pass through? A PCI or PCI-EX sound card? USB speaker or dongle sound circuitry?

USB uses completely separate sound software and configuration control. It's "codec" is totally different and separate from other sound circuitry drivers. Sometimes, USB PC speakers merely use USB for power--not signal. Drivers and mixers for the relevant onboard or analog card output port then still serve.

Cables connected correctly? Jacks on your stereo or TV working correctly? Very rarely cables are defective or worn out.

Microsoft Windows--right?

Not getting sound is frustrating and bedeviling at times--you likely already succeeded, though. You're sound hardware likely is OK--that's rarely defective or broken.

Sound driver software configuration likely has a "Test" feature in some menu--when configuration is correct, invoking that will pump tone through each speaker--right, then left (then satellite speaker and sub). Perhaps more than one set of configuration settings are relevant, too. Make certain that the configuration settings you need are made visible in your mixer configuration, as well. (That's not always a "given.")

Know which sound system you're using--find then which drivers and configuration you need!

AMD Linux tips: The AMD HDMI driver for passthrough requires the binary "non-free" driver from AMD--open source drivers currently won't pass through HDMI signals. Enable the "non-free" repository. That's the way AMD desires it. They currently won't cooperate with the community on the open source HDMI sound driver (AMD won't yet provide source code--something upon which the community insists before they will collaborate directly on creating drivers--reluctantly, they will assent now, though, to allowing AMD (and others) to create proprietary binaries for our use--the community won't directly support them, though). Video passthrough likely will work nominally, though--providing video sans sound....

Another Linux sound tip--you need the correct "backend," codec, and mixer software for the sound software used--gstreamer, phonon, Pulse, ALSA, OSS, Jack, etc. Often, this proves necessary for initialization, enabling, and configuration in the first place. (Perhaps a simple "check" in a box is all that's needed--you may need to "tinker" in order make such a simpleton solution visible and usable, though.) The situation changes over time. Pulse is the default now--ALSA may serve up better, more usable mixers than the comically overly-simplified ones provided for Pulse....

Windows 7 64 bit upgrade then sound doe,s not work tested speackers and connections any ideas

See my previous post here:

Your mixer: Right-click on the sound icon. Go through the menus--see which sound system currently is configured for use: Is that correct? (It's likely that the onboard sound ports are enabled by default. Thus, you can't get sound through your sound card, instead.)

Another option, perhaps, is HDMI. A video card featuring an HDMI port--or onboard video circuitry featuring an HDMI port--passes through both High-definition video--and, audio! Such config also proves available in the mixer, as well. Again, invoking such circuitry requires making that default (or otherwise usable) in the mixer.

I prefer to make every sound config option visible. Two sets are available in the sound icon mixer (from Windows)--those for "Play" and "Capture" (recording or monitoring). Check every box for each set to make their options visible and perhaps usable.

So, you wish to use your C-Media card!: It's likely then that disabling the onboard sound circuitry and ports may help. Using both proves still perhaps possible. Nonetheless, driver conflict also is possible. Have you checked device driver for driver conflicts and function? (Device Manager in Control Panel.) Any missing drivers, or codes indicating failure?

To disable onboard sound, go through your BIOS menus and find the one which enables onboard sound--click or "Tab"/"Space" to disable. Then, tab or click, navigating to the last menu. Indicate "Yes" in the option that saves your new BIOS configuration and reboots. (A less desirable method is to disable the onboard sound circuitry in Device Manager--found in Control Panel.)

(To get into BIOS config--turn on you or shut down and restart your machine--press the "Delete" key--well before the hard drive and OS boots. A newer BIOS allows mouse navigation and clicking to change config--older ones require the keyboard and use the "Tab" key to navigate. The "Space" key on the bottom of the keyboard allows assent to change an option.)

Check out C-Media's driver config icon program--in Control Panel (perhaps available in the task tray, as well). Is configuration accurate? Testing your speakers here also proves possible--that's very useful as you tinker.

Try upgrading the driver--with a correct download from C-Media's site or directly from right-clicking in Device Manager. (Recently, C-Media set up an easier to use site--one which doesn't require registration and joining.) The driver disk you note can't be updated--it may grant you function initially, anyway, though. (Config likely is similar or the same.)

Alternately for Windows, one may obtain third-party driver update software--online or on a disk. This sometimes proves more accurate than device manager--Microsoft often doesn't care always about noting and downloading the most current drivers. If it works OK and isn't a security risk, it's fine.

Go through each menu--from Microsoft (their sound icon executable), and C-Media Control Panel/Task tray executable--tinker, if necessary, to obtain function and enhanced function....

My speakers volume is high and im not hearing anything

Is the sound card installed right? Is the driver up-to-date? Have you checked the Volume Mixer? When you right-click on the speaker icon and then click Open Volume Mixer or something similar. You can see if the sound is muted. I'm not an expert but this is what I can think of at the moment. :P

Your board has Realtek ALC662 High Definition for sound. You can update your driver here:
This is Asus's link for downloads:
I will try to go over a few things seeing as you haven't described your problem with the sound. Get into "device manager" and click on the box next to "sound, audio and game controllers". You will have a list of your device(s). Right click on each one, one at a time and in the list you should see :disable". If you see "enable" click on that. You should have a speaker icon in your taskbar, lower right of your screen. Right click on that then on open sound mixer. Make sure your volume is up. If I can help you further let me know.

It about mixer device

that is a motherboard problem. The good news is that you can add a sound card to your system and disable the built in sound for relatively low cost.

usually a mixer device is a software program that emulates or acts like a mixer. Do u have a program like Windows media player,another program called "Spinner", Nero media player that have mixers. goto and look up mixers. u will find a fine collection of audio porgrams and most are "free"!!
good luck, "guntop"
p.s. Did u install, that I will assume u have Windows, xp, me, 98 media player software ?
