Hello,

I recently replaced my motherboard and am having problems with the onboard audio. The ASUS website identified my motherboard as an M2N-SLI, so I downloaded the audio drivers for that model and, upon installation, received this error message: "Please plug in "C-Media 6501 Sound" and install driver again."

I thought I might try the device manager to see if something there was causing a problem. "Other devices" contained a couple thing that looked like they might be related to my problem, so I tried to install drivers for them, but the hardware update wizard couldn't find drivers etc for "Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus", "SM Bus Controller" or "Unknown Device."

This has me absolutely stumped. I only know enough about computers to know that Something Is Terribly Wrong, and I can't figure out what. Please help!

Since you do not specifies I am assuming you have XP installed

"Please plug in "C-Media 6501 Sound" and install driver again."
1-Is your Audio device Enable in the Bios?

2-In the section Utilities of your motherboard download page you have this patch that may help.
Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/2003 HD Audio Patch KB888111

"Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus"
3-Sometimes until this device is working your audio will not work, install this driver Microsoft UAA Bus Driver XP

4-If you have not done it yet you should also install the Chipset Drivers for your motherboard


Hope one of these will help

Yes, I'm running XP - sorry for not mentioning that!

I'll try the things you've suggested as soon as I can. Hopefully something works!
