1) The first step should be your driver CD, that came with the
mother board.

2) The next step is to open up the windows device manager,
and look for yellow exclamation marks, indicating any drivers
that don't work.

On XP,

Right-click My Computer,
----> properties
----> Hardware
----> Device manager ...

3) Right on any device in the list, and SCAN for
hardware changes. Let Windows do its thing if
it needs to re-install any drivers.

4) You should be able to download the latest device
drivers from ASUS (here):

5) Finally, sheck your BIOS settings, to make sure the
audio hardware is enabled.

Hope this gets you started.

Cant find sound drivers 4 ma gigabyte pc

No Sound, No Volume Control, Mixer not Found, No Sound device installed…etc etc, This is a generic issue with all Windows OS updates....many of the users are facing this issue....this began after an auto update from MS changed many IRQs of Win OS, mainly the Sound and Audio Control system of Windows.
1 - R U facing NO Audio / No Sound issue...?
2 - Is ur Volume Control not responding ?
3 - Is ur Sound and Audio Device in Control Panel Grayed out ?
4 - Do u get a msg "No Active Mixer Devices Installed....when u try to open Volume Ctrl etc etc ?

If ur ans to any one of them is Yes...then u are being spammed by ur Sound Control IRQ is being frozen by a recent update from Microsoft....

No file update or any sound driver update can fix it, neither Microsoft is issuing any patch to fix it…or giving any help on this.
Full solution is available in my website (Support page)'s quite simple process to fix it, and I am not charging any money, just trying to do some service and help everyone affected by this stupidity from Microsoft.
visit my support page.

all the best...

I need the 6 channel audio sound drivers

There is a 6 channel card, which is available and you plug it into one your free PCI sockets. PCI sockets are located toward the bottom of the MB, oriented horizontally, and there is a slot on the back of the computer, where the connections are made and the controls can be adjusted. The installation is rather easy, following the instructions. Remember that not all programs have the "surround sound". Those who don't will have 4 silent speakers and two active. They may by now have sound cards that will let the non active speakers repeat the active ones, but I am not that familiar.

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.

I have a new asus p6t motherboard. No audio.

Install your audio driver for your motherboard.

Go to Asus Downloads

In the "Input Model to Search" box in the upper left, type your motherboard model. (P6T)

Click the Search Info button.

You will get a page that has 6 versions of the P6T motherboard. Select the correct one.

A window will open asking for your operating system. Select it from the drop-down menu. Click Search.

The list of available drivers will open. Click the x next to Audio.

There are 3 choices. 2 are for Reatek and 1 is SoundMAX. I would try the top Realtek driver first.

Click on the "Global" link to download it. When the Download window opens, Save it to your computer where you know how to access it after the download. For ease, you can select Desktop and save it there.

After the download, close all programs and run (double-click) the file you downloaded. Reboot after the install.

Should this driver not work, comment back and we'll try the SoundMAX.
