So I installed xp pro on a tower. The motherboard is M2N68 - am plus and I cannot get the right sound driver for this motherboard. I was up till 1.30 am last night trying to find the right one but none I download work and I did try the official ones from the manufactorers website.

 

I also tried swapping the AC'97 lead for the HD one and vice versa but didn't work as well.

 

ANy help would be greatly appreciated.

 

I'm very close to buying a new video card but I really don't want to...

 

It has all the codecs in device manager but no sound icon in the task bar and when I open sounds in control manager it says no device and everything is greyed out.

My other desktop has that board...Realtek Hi-Def codec should work.

 

Uninstall any audio drivers you may have installed already...before trying the Realtek HD driver, please.

Thanks for the reply mate.

I have already tried that though. Any other ideas? Is it possible that the onboard sound has died or something?

Open Device Manager, click View\Devices By Connection...and...Show Hidden Devices.

 

Devices that are "washed out" are not currently connected/installed.  Devices that deeply, normally reflected are attached/working.

 

Is the Realtek PCIe Controller listed?

hmm no I can't see it there. Isn't that to do with ethernet though?

Did you install the chipset driver first before other relevant drivers after reinstalling XP? Is the onboard sound for toggling on/off available on BIOS setup?

I think I installed the chipset after installing other ones. Can't remember exactly what options there wad in bios for sound but pretty sure it's on auto or something like that...

Try to double check the bios settings just in case. I think the auto settings is meant for onboard sound and sound card installed disabling(?) but just not sure since I don't have that Asus mobo model.

Not sure about azalia audio but according to your Motherboard specifications for audio is not AC 97 but ALC662 High Definition. Try downloading the ALC662 chip driver for Win XP from the link then install it again. Remove any other audio drivers first from device manager before installing.
 

 

Version V5.10.0.5919/V6.0.1.

Description Only for ALC662 audio chip!
