I've been through methods used in other threads, but am otherwise unable to rectify the problem. I hope you can help.

Sound was working perfectly up until last week when I formatted the computer and reinstalled Windows. Now there's nothing. I've tried installing the drivers which I think are correct to no avail.

Sorry to sound like many others, but hopefully you can appreciate everyone's setup is different.

VIA Chipset Driver Package

VIA Sound Driver Listing

To install the sound drivers for AC97 Sound, you must identify the southbridge chipset first.

Here is MSI's page listing drivers for your mainboard: http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=do...amp;prod_no=247

Usually MSI's "Live Update" tool works very well to update Motherboard (audio, Video, CPU) Drivers. It's on the link oldf@rt gave

If the MSI download does not work for your sound, you must open the case and read the markings on the VIA chip closest to your SATA Ports to find the chipset number, once you have the chipset number, match it to the corresponding number is the VIA download list and try that one.

Tried all of the VIA downloads. Nothing doing.

is this your motherboard?

if so it's not even listed in their main menu for drivers but
I found this page?
http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=do...amp;prod_no=215

evidently an oem release

that's why live update and via drivers don't work
