and 5.1 audio.


From what I find it has built in audio. You should be able to plug in your speakers and get sound. The PCI Express 16 should be for a video card. Have you tried pulgging in your speakers? In all the jacks, just in case you tried the wrong one, it's been known to happen.... :thumbsup:
If you've tried, you might need to enable it in the BIOS.

If you have a near-standard mobo, your mobo's I/O panel should have at least one plug: a 3.5mm jack with either green or blue. If it does, it has integrated sound.

Thank you Wildabeast and Ryan3000. After reading your input i not only found a bad connection on the speaker( in) but i also had to enable Audio in the bios!! Will remember this and try to be more with it, in future.
Many thanks from an old Pome,now a Kiwi !!
Best W ishes to you both.

Wildabeest,
A pome is a person bourn in England and the P.O.M.E. was derived from the old days when E ngland sent its convicts to colonise new countries.
A Kiwi is a Newzealander,nicknamed after its indigenous flightless bird the "KIWI"
