You can download the audio drivers for your motherboard from the motherboard manufacturer's WEB site.
I cannot give you the link to the motherboard manufacturer's WEB site because youhave not provided me with the details of the make and model of your motherboard.

Hello arthurg7a46
In the Device manager , you can go for a driver update of your sound controller where there is a question mark . Double click and select driver \ driver update and let Windows search on the Internet .
Unfortunately , this doesn' t always work and you will need to identify the sound controller to ba able to download the driver manually from the manufacturer's site .
Eventually , if you have difficulties in identifying the sound controller , try using a Driver Wizard such as Free Driver Max from http://download.cnet.com/DriverMax/3000-18513_4-10572602.html or purchase some other one like Driver Detective you can easily find with Google .
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

ASUS P5GC-MX/1333 audio driver installed but giving no sound.


Go to Start - My Computer, right click on it - Properties - Hardware - Device Manager and in there check that the sound device is correctly identified and loaded (no yellow triangles with ? in them). Then go to Start - Control Panel - Sounds and Audio devices and make sure it's correctly configured and the volume icon option is ticked - untick, save and tick it again to be sure.

Go to control panel --> system --> hardware >> device manager.
If you have problem with driver, there will be a big yellow question mark in your "audio controller". If there is problem, you have to reinstall your audio-driver.
If it is ok, then back to control panel -->sounds and audio devices. In tab "volume", you can see if your system might be "mute" (do uncheck box of mute). And if your volume icon is not in the taskbar, do check the checkbox of "place volume icon in the taskbar".
You can also modify the speaker performance here.
