A7N8X Onboard Audio Hitch

I have eventually managed to get the board up and running after a few drive recogntion problems and have now run into a world of silence! I have disposed of a 2year old creative live audio card and placed the CD audio input cable into the onboard cd audio port. Nothing, no audio on whole system, all games and links with audio elements not functioning. The Asus Probe detects no audio driveror system with the relevant buttons "grayed out" and inactive. Significantly the nForce Control Panel and icon are not present. After installing the latest nForce driver the icon appeared but failed to function and I have now used Go Back to restore the original driver. Before I get into flashing a new bios is there any obvious solution I have missed?

Is it enabled in the bios.

Correction, grayed out buttons present on win98se Control Panel Media Management display, therefore the OS is not detecting any audio from motherboard?

Have you checked the BIOS as Rayuk suggests. There is sometimes more than one option in there that has to be set for the ausdio to work.

Bios has been checked, only found one relevant (?) AC97 audio enabler which is correctly set. It also appears thet all drivers are present. This would make me think that the motherboard and OS aren't communicating on audio issues, noting the greyed out buttons on the audio element of the control panel.

What happens if you disconnect the CD cable?

I would try and instal the latest Nvidia drivers version 2.03 see if that helps.
[Dont know which driver version you have on.]

Tog I'll try the CD idea later when I have more time...it's the sort of logic that often works. Ray I've already tried the latest driver Jan03, but it only makes the system more unstable giving me a nForce icon that doesn't produce a result and seems to trigger a good deal of OS "hanging". I was about to flash the latest BIOS and re-try the new driver when I bottled it and began this thread. Maybe "flashing" is the only way ahead...if you get my meaning?
