As some of you might know that I ecently build my own pc and everthing is finally working apart from the sound card, The sound cable is connected to the speakers but there is no sound. It says in the controll panel that the device is not installed but how is that possible when the sound card is actully built in the motherboard and it is enabled in the BIOS as "auto". Is there something that I am missing to enable this sound card. The driver cannot install b'cause "apperantly" there is no sound card. Any ideas what can be done here guys?
Ah hah, fresh from the field... The mobo requires the audio drivers to be installed, by you. They should have come on the disc of utilities which should have come with the mobo, assuming it was new. If not, visit the site of the mobo manufacturer, find your model and download the latest audio driver and install it. The "not installed" thing doesn't just mean physically, it embraces the software thing too ;-)
right pj164 find 2 posts one by wotbus and one by monkey1986 read both posts as they will help you
sound isnt auto installed if it is onboard still need to load it from motherboard driver cd
nvidia is an all in one program if your motherboard uses nvidia 3 4 etc chipsets etc or you can get mix and matche with other motherboards example:: via motherboard chipset but use,s realtek audio drivers
the auto in bios is there because if you buy a seperate sound card you turn off the onboard and use the dedicated card for audio which reduces the motherboards system resources giving it a boost as the dadicated card takes care of the audio
