NO Audio even after putting in own sound card

Hi, im really struggling with this. I recently bought this motherboard and everything went fine, after I reinstalled everything up until the point I installed my onboard (Realtek AC97) audio. It installs fine and it is recognized but absolutely no audio comes out when I play something. Everything is max volume (not muted) etc. So I thought mabey the onboard is broken so I got myself a creative soundblaster live. After disabling my onboard sound and putting in the new sound card I installed the drivers and all is fine, but still NO SOUND is coming out. I tried headphones, different speakers so I really dont know what it could be. PLEASE HELP ME IM GOING OUT OF MY HEAD!

It sounds like a driver problem. Go to Device Manager. Ususally it can be found by right-clicking on My Computer, go to Properties, then Hardware tab. I would uninstall everything under the "Sound, video, and game controllers" heading. Also, uninstall everything under the Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel that pertains to your sound card. Remove the Soundblaster card, then turn computer on. Go to BIOS setup, and enable onboard audio. Each motherboard is different. If you don't know how to do this, I suggest referencing your motherboard's user manual. Once onboard audio (AC97) has been enabled, load Windows. It should recognize and install all drivers needed. If this does not work, I recommended downloading the latest drivers from your manufacturer's website and installing them. If new drivers don't work, it's hard to say. It sounds like it's a software problem, tho, since you have the same issue with your Soundblaster card. As a last resort, you could wipe your harddrive and reinstall Windows. Make sure to backup any personal files first, of course.

Difficult to diagnose from afar but go to Start>Run, then type 'dxdiag' without quotes and see if; when it does a sound and video test anything shows up.

    What you have to remember is when you install xp it automatically it automatically loads the generic Windows drivers for the AC97 sound controllers, and this is not always the better driver.

    Follow the instructions in other solution to remove drivers and make sure that Windows looks for the motherboard cd sound drivers or the downloaded driver on your hard drive when it reboots.

The audio codec used in the camera is not installed on your computer. Check the Olympus website to find out what they're using - perhaps there's a download available.

I`ve just bought a graphics card and i am struggling to install it in the mother board

hi this sounds like you may have bought the wrong type of graphics card for your motherboard, depending on the age of your motherboard they have changed over from AGP to PCI-e or even ePCI-e now if you have a slot that looks just like a PCI expansion slot at the top on its own away from the other ones, this will indicate a PCI-e or ePCI-e slot, if you have a brown slot at the top of the other ones this will be a AGP slot, just in case you have the right card, for the right slot, there is a locking clip at the end of the AGP slot that you have to pull to one side to put it in check to see if this is the case, then just do that.........hope this helps

2 Asus motherboards with no sound

There's only really two things you can try.

One, check first into the BIOS and make sure that the integrated sound is enabled.

Next, check to see if your video card, if it is PCI express, because it sometimes has their own sound.

If you have done these two things, then perform an ASUS update to the BIOS. Perhaps the BIOS is flaky.

If this doesn't work and you have checked everything else, then you'll need to contact ASUS directly about the motherboard issue.

Uninstall the driver & again install it out.If still it doesn't work then check for the type of motherboard,& audio chipset.Down load the driver from internet & install it out.It must work,if driver problem persist.If at all hardware problem then you have to use the usb soundcard for audio to enable in laptop.It also works fine.


Missing sound driver

How much power does your power supply give? It could be that your power supply cannot take the power of your videocard. They say it is recommended to have at least 700watts of power with that videocard as it consumes a lot of power.
