how can i set up sound card from the motherboard i thought i had a dedicated card but cant find it

If you have onboard sound and you can't here it, it probably been disabled in your BIOS. Re-boot and enter your BIOS to re-enable it. I am assuming you have carried out checks to ensure your sound has not just been muted, and your speakers are correctly plugged in.

Either that or they need the drivers re-installed.

Check device manager to ensure drivers are working.

Yellow warning means driver problem

Has the driver been installed after downloading?

Hi, I had this when i built my pc. There should be drivers that came with the disk you got with your motherboard. That is if you built your pc.

have you checked the BIOS? Did you attempt to install the downloaded file? If so what did it say?

When I do a reinstall of windows XP I don't have any sound until I load the AC97 drivers, either downloaded from the net(that link i gave) or off my motherboard cd, it doesn't matter which.

PS. Which OS and which motherboard?
