1) Go to: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices > Audio tab
2) Check what's under "Sound playback: Default device" and "Sound recording: Default device". It these fields are grey and non-clickable, then most probably the audio card driver is missing or less probably the audio card itself is broken.
3A) If you have an original CD of your computer, motherboard, or audio card, insert the CD and install the driver from it.
3B) Or alternatively insert the CD and go to: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System > Hardware > Device Manager, find any unidentified device in the list, or expand the "Sound, video and game controllers" branch, identify the Audio card > Right click > Update driver... > Install the software automatically > Next
3C) Or alternatively download and install a free driver updater software, e.g. http://www.innovative-sol.com/drivermax/index.htm - let it scan and update all your missing drivers.
P.S. These steps mentioned above are for Windows XP, but will be quite similar on other Windows versions, too.
1st Step - Check the speaker volume to see if it on a audible level.
2nd Step - Check in the sound properties window in control panel if the sound is muted.
3rs Step - Check the sound properties window shows the name of a device or does it say no audio device installed. If it says no audio device that means the sound driver is missing and u can simply install the driver from the driver cd or download it from your computer manufacturer's website. < Missing driver is one of the most common issues for sound problem >
Another thing that you can try doing incase the driver is present, the volume is up and the speaker is also turned on and you still don't get sound, then you try plugging in a headphone to the system and see if you get sound on the headphone, if you do then that means the speakers are bad. If you don't then your sound card in the system is bad.
HI, WHAT IS THE CONTENT OF THE CD. IS THIS A MUSIC CD? IF IT IS , ALL YOU NEED IS A SOFTWARE LIKE WINDOW PLAYER OR ITUNE TO PLAY THE MUSIC. YOUR WINDOW PLAYER MAY NOT BE SET UP AS AN AUTOMATIC TO PLAY YOUR CD. OR YOU LOST OR THE SOUND DRIVER IS DE ACTIVATED. YOU CAN CHECK THE SOUND VOLUME FIRST, OR CLICK START, CONTROL PANEL, CLICK THE SOUND DEVICE AND CLICK THE HARDWARE TAB AND CLICK THE WHAT KIND OF SOUND DEVICE RIGHT CLICK AND THE PROPERTY WILL APPEAR CLICK THE UP DATE DRIVER AND FOLLOW THE COMPUTER INSTRUCTION. HOPE THIS INFO WILL HELP YOU SOLVE YOUR D & E DRIVE PROBLEM.
you can get this driver. You might have to look a bit for it. The driver will come from Microsoft though, not from Asus. I have several ASUS motherboards running windows 7. In most cases if you go to the devide manager, right click the "missing driver" for HD audio, Windows 7 has usually gone out downloaded the file by itself. But if you have to look for it, go to the microsoft website and search for HD audio in their downloads section.
Hi sgs182, when a driver fails to install correctly its best to install through windows device manager. Suggest you try this method of instillation before trying another HD audio driver. Also enter your bios & make sure the HD is enabled.
Either use the driver CD that came with the motherboard or download the driver from Biostar. Windows 2003 is more like window XP however we both know what you need is a driver for 2003. Biostar makes other P4M890-M7 motherboards that do support win 2003 for HD.
·P4M890-M7 TE 7.x ·P4M890-M7 SE 7.x ·P4M890-M7 PCI-E 7.1 ·P4M890-M7 PCI-E 7.0 ·P4M890-M7 FE 7.x
Biostar motherboards 7.0 & 7.1 audio drivers are the same file size of 24.77MB & support x86/2003 operating systems.
How to install through windows device manager?
Left click once on the start button. Slide up to & left click on control panel. Find the System icon & open it. Left click on the hardware tab than left click on the device manager button. Scroll down to Sound, video and game controller, which should already be opened. You should see a yellow explanation point here.
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...). (Only if you do not want to install from the CD).
Click the green check mark once & it will go away.
Click the browse button, click the + sign next to my computer. Find the desktop folder
You created & named. Open it. High-light the folder that has the driver in it & click ok. Windows will find the correct driver software within the folder & install it automatically. Once completed. Close all opened windows & restart you’re system. Test your audio. If you intend to use a mic, you will need to set this up through the Sounds audio device within the control panel.

Hi naveenraj, listed below is the link for your board through Asus. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=A7V8X-X&SLanguage=en-us 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.
