Hi Guys,
I upgraded my pc in the last few days and I cannot get the onboard sound to work. It is supposed to be AC97 Audio, with AD188 SoundMax Audio. I checked in the bios to see if the onboard was switched to on. I also downloaded the latest Sound Max Drivers. Any Advice would be appreciatted.
Cheers.

My specs are :
Motherboard : Asus K8V - MX
Processor : AMD 3400 Sempron 64 Bit
Graphics : Nvidia FX 68000
RAM : 1 Gig 3200 x 400
Hard Drive : Maxtor 200 Gig

Try other speakers in the port, and make sure the existing cables are connected properly. This will rule out any problems with your speakers.

Hi. This is interesting... You have all of your drivers updated, so they won't be the issue, and the speakers work elsewhere. Now, the system won't identify the speakers... I would have to say that there's something wrong with the computer itself for sure... When did this start? Have you made any changes to the system recently?

No, I just built this in the last week, using some of the things from my other pc, like the graphics card. But otherwise it is virtually new. I did insert a brand new Processor and heatsink. If it has not got the audio in it, I guess the first thing I shoud do is try and install it from the Motherboard cd.

Ok, here is what I did to solve the problem. I took a sound card out of my other pc and installed it on this MB. Then I switched on, the AC 97 [ find Audio devices ] in the bios. Walla, the sound came on. I need to pop out tomorrow and get a new sound card as this one is up for sale with the other pc. Once again, thanks a lot guys for your efforts.

Cheers.
