Their is no sound card device. but their is a sound card built in

You may check whether it is enabled in BIOS. The on-chip sound card should be enabled in BIOS. You can check your manual to see how to enter BIOS when booting up your computer.

There are no sounds coming out from my computer... Wether it is mp3,wav, etc. I can't make a computer call coz my computer says there are no sound card detected in my system...

if you just installed a vid card with HDMI, sometimes the bios will recognize a new sound device, and disable the onboard sound, leaving only the HDMI audio, which is useless if not being used. if this is the case, go into your BIOS and set your sound device from "auto" to "enabled"

Am trying to call computer to computer but a message keep coming up saying that i do not have a sound card or my sound card is not turned on.

try re-installing the audio controller. Your onboard sound card driver may be corrupted. check device manager for issues. try downloading fresh driver from your computer MFG's website. If no dice, install a PCI sound card and that will fix the prob.

Good luck

No sound output

You'll want to verify that the onboard audio is enabled within the bios first, beyond that the audio codecs for that mobo should be the Realtek AC97 drivers, go to this link to obtain them. You have a choice of two - the AC97 standard codecs or the HD codecs (I would probably try the HD codecs first). I would also be curious as to whether the audio hardware is showing up in the device manager at all (especially if it has the yellow exclamation point next to it).

Based on what you posted about a bios update being the catalyst I would definitely check the onboard audio enabled within the bios option first...

Please post a little more info (especially about what the device manager says) or your results from the reinstall of the AC97 drivers...

Cannot control sound when booting...

Look under "Volume" "sounds" "Audio" and "Hardware"
I see it on my computer. If you place the "volume icon" in the task bar, you can control the volume of the computer.

It's probably disabled in bios. Find out which key to hit during startup to enter bios (usually del or F2) and look for 'onboard devices' or something similar. Your soundcard will be in there.

Remember to save your settings as you exit bios. Drivers for the card should automatically install upon logging back into windows.

Hope this helps,
