Me too!

I have posted full details of my problem at click here (but no responses yet...)

I don't wish to hijack your post but is that the sort of problem you are experiencing?

Are you getting sound from any of the other speakers at all? (Have you tried the "Speaker Test" under the AC97 set-up window? That can help to eliminate whether it is the speakers themselves or the connections.)

You could try updating the driver(s) in Device Manager. Or try an uninstall and reinstall of the driver(s) that you already have.

It's more than likely the connector on the back of the motherboard - make sure the plug is pushed right in - the last mm or two can be very tight. Also try roating the plug, against a poor connection inside the socket - very common.

I had problems recently with AC'97 and eventually managed to fix it by downloading the drivers from CD to HD and reinstalling them from there.
