"Our audio chip provides multi-speaker blah.....
Due to the fact that your computer is not equipped with our audio chip, you canot avail yourself of these advanced features."
Remember - my sound wasn't working before the fixes.

Ok...I had forgortten that.

What was the file name of the driver you just downloaded...Biostar has messed me up before this way...they'll sometimes send the wrong file.

Meanwhile, do you have a little speaker icon in the system tray by the clock? If yes, double click it and make sure the volume is up and the "Mute" checkbox is clear.
