Have recently built a new machine using the above board. Everything is working well with the exception that there is no sound from the in-built Nvidia system. The POST speech report doesn't work although enabled in the BIOS. Have tried alternative jumper positions on the board. Any ideas????
Speakers are Boston which were working when they were unplugged from my old machine. The drivers have been loaded and the BIOS is activated. The MB features a speech POST report which I understand should work through the basic case speaker - it doesn't.
"should work through the basic case speaker - it doesn't."
Many cases no longer have speakers, just beepers - not sure what would happen under those circumstances. As this could always be a different issue, check that you have the case sounder on the right connections to the motherboard.
If everything else is as you say, the inescapable conclusion is that you've made an error in your checking or the motherboard is faulty - even if only in the area of the speaker connector.
Sorry to state the obvious again, but a number of times I've seen these mini-jackplugs not go right into the socket without a good firm push - there should be no visible metal from the jack showing - if there is, it ain't right in.
