I had a motherboard where the sound went off. I just diabled it in bios and put in a sound card that gave much better sound.

You have to load the Motherboard Sound Drivers. So you need to go to MSI For drivers Go to click here

You need to know what the Chipset is on the Motherboard

My MSI KT6V uses a Realtek onboard sound chipset but, of course, MSI may also use other such as C-Media.

In fact, despite citadel's observation, onboard sound these days is excellent - the C-Media 8738 I had at one time and the current Realtek both stand up well against a Creative SoundBlaster Live! I used for a while.

Thanks to all but which one do I use ?? one the on board sound drivers match my main board which is kt 880 delta ver 1 what is meant by win 9x do I take it that it is win 98

Yes win9x means suitable for windows 3.1 95 and 98 and ME

Have you checked from Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices that your onboard sound is Enabled as the default audio device?

Also check from Device Manager>Sound, Audio and Games Devices>(highlight your onboard sound chipset)>Properties that Use This Device is Enabled in the General tab.
