You need to install the software for the soundcard

Do you know if it is onboard or a seperate soundcard, also the make and model

Click start, right click my computer, click properties, hardware, device manager, click the + for sound video and game controllers to see if anything other than legacy audio drivers is listed

Did you get a motherboard CD, onboard sound drivers should be on that
