Onboard Sound

Just installed a new motherboard & have 2 problems:
1.Can't get the onboard sound to go through my speakers - nothing at all. Even when i then put my old sound card in still no sound. Just comes up with a conflict in device manager. Had a tinker in bios & enabled it but still no joy...
2.Also bought an Athlon xp 1900 but the only way it will boot up correctly is if i set the jumpers at 100mhz which gives me a cpu speed of just over 1100 ghz. I want 1600 like i paid for...!!!! Just freezes up otherwise.
Any help appreciated..

Hi Danny,
I have come across onboard sound problems before!
A lot are picked up wrongly by pnp! There is usually a utility provided with the motherboard to uninstall the wrongly installed sound chip, (something like unist.exe in sound folder on cd). The conflict will be because you now have two installed sound cards so take the old one out!
With regard to speed problem are you sure you bought the correct memory to go with the motherboard?
Good luck

Let me get this right...

You first tried your onboard sound, then installed a sound card and then enabled onboard sound in the BIOS?? No wonder the onboard s/card didn't work....

It will help if you can give some information about your mobo and OS.

As far as the CPU is concerned, I suggest that you go through all the jumper settings again. Somewhere you missed something or else your mobo doesn't support your new CPU.

Thanks for the reply.
Tried it both ways - without the sound card - no joy & with the sound card - no joy. I have a clean install of wixp so there shouldn't be any sound drivers on anyway.
Re. memory - i have the correct memory - ddr ram 256 which i have been assured is compatable with my board and processor .....

have you loaded the sound drivers from your mobo driver disk?

could we perhaps just try one thing at a time its getting difficult to keep abreast of the multiple posts.no disrespect to you , we may get on faster if we slow down a tad..I havent read your manual yet or indeed downloaded it as such sound /if its Ac97 needs to be enabled in Bios and 4in1 drivers added as does the onboard nic..discard the other sound card for now..i will now go off to mobo site and try download..The cpu speed just leave for the moment Ill look at it when ive read your manual..Sorry I was late getting here.been very busy day...Back soon..
