Hey everybody. I'm hoping you can help. Speakers are not playing any sound. Speakers work - they play fine on my other computer. Computer was custom made (not by me!). Motherboard is ECS KT600-A with Realtek AC'97 Audio.

I checked the wires. I checked Device Manager (no caution signs). Volume levels are up, not muted. Even went into BIOS setup to make sure audio was enabled (it was).

When I go to AC97 Audio Configuration, Connector Sensing, the computer states Connected Device - Not connected.

Not sure what to try next. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Also went to Windows Audio Services - It is set to Started and Automatic

Under Audio Configuration:

Audio driver version: 5.10.0.6220
DirectX Version: Direct X 9.0c
Audio Controller: VIA(3059)
AC97 Codec: ALC655

Even though Device Manager says everything is OK I would still try replacing the driver

I tried replacing the driver both from motherboard cd & downloading from realtek - no luck.
Listed under Device Manager: Sound, video and game controllers:

-Audio Codecs
-Legacy Audio Drivers
-Legacy Video Capture Devices
-Media Control Devices
Microsoft Kernel System Audio Device
Microsoft Kernel Wave Audio Mixer
Microsoft WINMM WDM Audio Compatibility Driver
Realtek AC'97 Audio for VIA Audio Controller
Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device
Video Codecs

Do I need all of these?

Also, while in AC97 Audio Configuration, Connector Sensing states that there is NO connected device.

Well, ECS isn't the greatest board around. The sound chip could have failed. As long as you have a spare PCI slot, sound cards aren't expensive

Do you have battery powered speakers? Old stuff but maybe the batteries are dead. Or the wall wart transformer that powers the speakers is dead or the power is off to the wall outlet.

Speakers are not battery powered. The speakers are not the problem as they work on my laptop.

Garmanma - If the sound chip failed, would the pc still say that the device is working properly?
