You could have just said go to device manager.
Assuming what you wanted to check, there is no "other devices" categories.

Nope, none.
So you think it's the actual sound card and not anything else?

Sounds like the sound chip has failed. You have tried the actual drivers for that motherboard not counting several of them made for that motherboard and none have worked. It is safe to say that the onboard sound chip has most likely failed.

Why did you say not to post anything under Debug - PCI ..?


That info is not needed normally so it's not needed to analyze the issue. Everyone still posts it but we don't use it.

So the PC knows that SOMETHING is there...
But the actual Realtek soundcard isn't being read...
Also... No audio control on the bottom right?

Easy way to find out:

OK then I need to see what the Audio Properties show as your default audio device.
Go to Start and then to Control Panel
Right click on the Sound or Audio Devices and then click on Properties
At the top of the window click on Audio and what does it say for Default Audio Device?
Click on Playback and same information?
