Have you installed the drivers from the cd after your windows install?

if you have already installed the driver, Was it a factory Cd or was it a burned CD with drivers he downloaded from the computer manufacturer site? Have you tried to uninstall the driver and then reinstall. Are your speakers plugged in?

No it was a Burned CD and I used the CD off of my Computer Case.

He downloaded them from the ASUS Site. Where and how do I uninstall the drivers (Im not the best with PC tech). Yes my speakers are plugged in.

its all different. The HD is from my Compaq. The MoBo is ASUS. I have a Pinnacle PCI Capture Card Installed(Works Fine). My Videocard is installed and works fine.

ASUSTeK Computer INC. M2V-MX

Here is the homepage for that model http://www.asus.com/...grf8Ci4yxnqzt3z
As you can see the sound is built onboard. There should have been a drivers disk with the mb. That disk will have drivers for the sound, lan, video, usb. Double check to make sure you are plugged in the correct speaker outlet on the system. Never hurts to make sure.
After installing and if the sound and other onboard do not work, then go into the bios and check to make sure all onboard items are enabled. :)

Not a problem, did your cousin tell you of any problems with the mobo when you got it?
If not try going into device manager and check to see if any sound devices have yellow exclamation marks next to them . If possible take a screenshot and include

Something else you may check is
start>all programs> Accessories>Entertainement> Volume
Check to make sure the master volume is turned up.
Windows can be strange sometimes

I get an error that reads: "There are no active mixer devices available. To install mixer devices go to Control Panel, Click printers and other hardware, then click add hardware."

Double check all connections for your speakers, Power, output on the computer and any speaker wires make sure they aren't loose or disconnected then if device manager indicates a problem with your driver for your sound, uninstall the driver then click HERE for the download for your motherboard, install that driver, this is directly from Asus website

This should help, but if it doesn't then we have a different problem, but lets try that right now.

I just reviewed the post there were several posts inserted after I looked and before I replied... so we may have a different problem... let me think a little bit

I didnt uninstall anything. The PC shut off. I turned it back on and it gave me a "Searching for Disk in Floppy Drive" alternating with "Searching for Disk in CD Drive". No other option so I powered down and now I'm getting no screen. (Im on my laptop now.)
