Can anyone help me please. I have an Asus A7N8X Motherboard with on board sound. XP Home SP2. I have lost all sound. In device manager there are no yellow exclamation marks. I have tried updating the drivers with no result. I have recently put in a new Graphics card. I had to install the drivers for the old one before installing the new drivers. Could I have done something then?.They are both nVidia. As far as I can recall,it seems as though this has been a gradual process of sound loss,but I can not be sure. If it is a problem with my onboard sound. Can I install a sound card and does it go into a PCI slot. Thanks in anticipation J
The sound chip is very near the AGP slot on that board - do you have any audio ports on the front of your PC connected to the pins next to the first PCI slot? Can you hear anything from the PC if you play an audio CD ?
Is my face red. I am most terribly sorry to have caused you trouble trying to solve my problem. When I checked in the control panel/sounds and audio devices.Nothing was muted BUT the "Sound Scheme" showed "no sound" ( I changed this to windows default) and the audio was set to an USB audio Device.!!!. I changed this to the nVidia sound chip and now all is well. I really am sorry and do thank you for your help. J
