I have just upgraded my generic system with a new motherboard and the on-board audio does not work. If you try to do anything with sound on the control panel it says 'No Audio device'. If I disable the on_boasrd audio and install a OBM sound care (which was working fine) I get the same result. I also have a new hard drive as a filed drive was the impetus for the upgrade.
Diskette drive also does not work.

I loaded the system board CD for the drivers but all I saw were RAID drivers.

Board is ecs P4M800PRO-M
INTEL P4 Dual Core 1800 Mhz
1 GB PC2700 memory
Maxtor 160 GB disk
Windows XP Home

Right click on My Computer and select Manage. From there select the Device Manager. Click the "+" next to Sound, Video, and Game Controllers. Do you see a yellow "!" anywhere?

Did you install the drivers CD that came with your MOBO?

:whistling: Thank you, thank you, :blink:

I thought I had a hardware problem but drivers were lurking in the back of my mind. It has been a long time since I have regularly worked with machines or Windows to an great extent. I was trying to get to the device manager through the control panel and not having much luck. Your instruction to get to the dev. ngr was all I needed.

I was able to fix the audio drivers. I asa;so fixed the drivers for my (broken) SCSI scanner and the video which was running in default VGA mode. I now, no longer have any yellow wuestion marks in the dev. mgr..

The floppy drive cable was reversed. Everything now works.

Best regards,

Phil H.
