have no sound

  styven 16:46 25 Oct 2004

Have built a pc for my brother but cannot get any sound from it.

Pc chips M848LU MB (onboard sound)
athlon xp 2500
40gb hdd
256mb memory
polk audio speakers into relevant socket on the back of mb

Have installed AC97 from disc that came with MB, the program shows in the add/remove programs screen, but only the "AV rack" part of this program seems to be available. control panel/sounds and audio/audio all the options are "greyed". volume section the same saying no audio device.

Hi Styven

Have you tried downloading up to date ac97 drivers from the net?

thanks jomi,

went there downloaded and installed, no different, in the sound device audio section, it says there is no playback device installed, do i have a hardware or software issue here??

my understanding is that by installing ac97 this is the playback device.
