from what i can find, these are all the drivers for that motherboard Motherboard drivers

I would suggest you try each of the audio drivers 1 by 1, making sure to uninstall them as you go so u get no conflicts

Is the sound disabled in the bios? I have had many onboard sound hardware go bad after a nearby lightning strike. I live in Fla where lightning is a problem. I've bought puters where the onboard sound was disabled so a PCI sound card could be used. When the puter was sold they took the sound card out and forgot to re-enable the onboard sound. Usually a yellow mark says the sound device is recoginized but the drivers are missing. a red question mark usually means the device is not working.
