there isn't an option for my onboard audio under the audio tab. It just has my sound card and modem #0 line playback and modem #0 handset playback.

Sorry...I missed your last post. :tazz:

Download and install This Driver for your onboard audio. Reboot and see if the device is recognized in Device Manager.

The driver wouldn't install, it said it could not find the hardware.

Go back into BIOS and make sure that the integrated audio is still enabled and the PCI card is disables. Then go through the suggestion I made in post #2. Is the integrated sound devoce listed the those settings?

The BIOS settings are right, the device isn't listed in volume control.

Download and run WinAudit. Save the audit to your desktop. This will save three files. Attach the one named "rightframe.html" to your next post. The other two may be deleted from the desktop.

Mega Robo-Dino-Ninja...

Both audio devices are recognized in the audit. I also see an awful lot of atapi errors and hanging applications...particularly the media player. This leads me to believe we are looking at corroupt system files rather than driver issues.

Click Start then Run...type sfc /scannow (Note the space between sfc and /) and press "Enter". You will be asked for your installation cd, so have it handy. Wait for the scan to finish (this might take up to an hour). When it's finished, click Start then Run...type chkdsk /r (Again...note the space) and reboot when prompted (type Y and press Enter). This will run on boot-up so restart will take a while...be patient.

Let me know if there is any improvement after running these procedures.

nothing has changed, volume control still won't recognize my device, and I didn't see any problems in the SFC.

Why was the second sound card added?

Try taking the PCI sound card out of the machine and uninstalling the drivers for it. Leave the drivers on the machine, just uninstall them from Device Manager.

Does Windows detect and install the integrated audio when you boot back up?
