Hi, I just replaced my old mobo with an ASUS with NVIDAInForce 2. After a few probs. with recognition of USB and a few other items, everything now seems to be working fine with the exception of Audio. I downloaded the setup files from the ASUS CD but still can.t get a peep out of either earphones or speakers. Can anyone suggest the reason for this problem and maybe answers on how to overcome it, short of installing a separate soundcard.

TIA

That motherboard should have come with a CD containing the drivers for that board. Did it, and did you load the drivers?

When you say that you downloaded the "setup files", are you referring to the drivers?

Would you please post the model of this Asus motherboard?

Thank you for your message. The mobo came with CD containing drivers for NVDIA and for USB and I clicked on install and presumed that that would load the drivers. the mobo is an ASUS 78X-X Rev 2.xx

The NVDIA is your audio. If you installed the drivers for this they should be present in the Device Manager.

Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Device Manager.

Scroll down to Sound, video and game controllers to see if the drivers are installed, or if there are any errors.

Hi and thanks for the reply.
I have checked Device Manager and found "Sound, video and game controllers with sub entries as follows

Audio codecs
Legacy Audio drivers
Legacy video capture devices
Medfia Control device
MPU-401 Compatible MIDI Device
NVDIA®nForce™Audio Codec Interface
Standard Game Port
Video Codecs

Clicking on "Properties" of each shows as "Working Properly"
None of them has the X mark of inoperative.Any further suggestions of where the problem may lie?

Have you looked in the Audio and sound devices in the control panel to be sure that the audio isn't muted, or the volume is too low?

Yes checked all the parameters and tabs including advance settings and they are all set to maximum volume, nothing seems to be muted.

Are the speakers plugged into the correct terminal?
