On the back of the computer where all connections go you will find a series of small connection ports they are where your speaker lead will go usually the green one is for speaker if not colored there will be a small sign above the holes for speaker mic and external sound in hope this helps

Sound driver

First, make sure your speakers are on, the volume is up, plugged into the correct port on the computer and the sound setting in you computer's operating system is not muted. If that doesn't work probably do need a driver.

If the sound port is on the motherboard go to your MB manufacturer's website and locate the sound or audio driver that matches your MB and operating system. The MB ports are usually grouped together so the sound port would be near the keyboard, mouse and USB ports.

If the sound port is on an add-on card (PCI /PCI-E) then go to the card maker's website and locate the sound or audio driver that matches your MB and operating system.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

I cant install audio device for mb gigabyte 945gcmx i have such cd to install it what can i do to install it

though itz unclear to me of wat os u r using..
assuming that u r using win xp pro sp2..n directx installed..
howevr, download microsoft kb888111 update n install it..u need to re-install or update the device driver (may b manually)..logon to internet n seek the package/audio driver..along wid the company, there will b a list of such site n driver download links if u search by the model name on a search engine like google..
download them onto a location; if the driver is in a zip format, unzip it,if itz in .exe form, just run it; if done manually it'll ask for the correct driver and location; relocate the path and a .inf file (wat it'll ask for)....goto the device manager n verify, if installed properly..!!
also download n install k-lite mega codec pack....

if not fixed try using a standby pci snd card..
but always better to consult ur system admin/vendor..!!

Gigabyte m/b p3i-ds3l i have no drivers


I believe that is supposed to be P31-DS3L.

Here is the main support site:

P31-DS3L Support

Select your operating system from the drop-down menu. When you do a list of available downloads will appear.

I would Save them to your computer and after you install them from there, put them on a CD or flash-drive for future use if needed.

Thanks for using Fixya.

If you double click on the speaker icon in the system tray or go to audio / sound in control panel and check in there.

Also have you got the speakers / headphones connected to the correct port ?

The motherboard manuals would be supplied by the manufacturer, in this case a company named Gigabyte, which is not a part of nor related in any way to website. The following is a link to the support page for this motherboard on the Gigabyte website:)

There are three revisions of this motherboard {1.x, 5.0 and 5.1} and NONE of them have onboard VGA. All use an add-in 4X AGP VGA card that goes into the brown slot at the top of the white PCI slots. You must provide your own video card if you received the board separately (outside of a system). If you received a full system the card may already be installed. you will have to physically remove that card (with the system off and unplugged first!) and look at any writing on it to determine the manufacturer brand and model of the video card. I assume you are asking so you can locate the correct drivers for the video display. If so, please repost the information on the video card along with the operating system you are using so we can help you locate the correct driver.

On board sound

Hi nrls14, it can get pretty confusing with Gigabyte.
Go to page 9 in your manual or Pg 13 if using Adobe Reader. Motherboard layout. If you download the manual which is in pdf format you'll be able to enlarge the manual which will help you to see everything much better.
Download manual from here:
This is the English manual. (Downloading from china is a faster site).
Find SUR_CEN located between PCI slots 2 & 3 on the motherboard. Than go to pg 32 in manual or pg 36 in pdf. Set the pins SUR_CEN. Set a jumper over pins 1&2 & 5&6.
Front Audio Connector, leave a jumper across pin 5&6 & 9&10 (Default). On page 22 in manual, pg 26 pdf. Follow Method1:
Instructions. (Test your speaker system). You may need some tweaking & this can be done with the software included on the Gigabyte CD by installing the sound effects manager. Go to page 78 in your manual or pg 82 in pdf. Page 80 in manual, pg 84 in pdf. For six channel 5.1 sound. If you decide to use the Advanced 6 Channel Analog Audio Output Mode (using Audio Combo Kit, Optional Device). Follow the instructions on page 81 in manual or pg 85 in pdf. (Do not let the picture on pg 81 spook you). Pg 81 shows a set of pins not located in-between the two PCI slots. You make this connection by removing the two jumpers on SUR_CEN & plug in the SURROUND-KIT on to SUR_CEN pins. Lastly, both motherboard manuals are the same for the GA-7N400 & the GA-7N400 Pro.

Good luck nrls14!
