I use WinXP and recently changed my old mainboard with a K7SOM+ (Duron 1.2 GHz, I know it is outdated).
all volume levels are at maximum in the volum control window and the speakers are connected to the audio jack (mainboard) but no sound comes out. The speakers work fine on another computer. I tried all connectors in case there was a mismatch but nothing changes.
Does anyone know why?
Look on the mainboard for a .rev# (revision number). Once you locate it, go to ecs, download and install the appropriate audio drivers for that board if you haven't done it yet. If you have, check the prefered playback device setting in Control Panel>Sounds and Audio>Audio Tab.
Do you also have a sound card installed? You may have installed both drivers.
You can disable the onboard sound in "Device Manager"
Try listening to a CD. If it seems to be playing fine and you cannot hear it the volume may be muted in volume control.
If the CD won't play than the sound drivers are not installed.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
