Cannot for the life of me get my speakers to work...!!! Got an new A7N266-vm mboard with onboard sound. got all the latest drivers but not a peep.
Do i have to switch anything on in the bios..?? What about on the board itself..??i turned on midi and gave it an irq but still nothing although the joystick works fine. Any help would be appreciated..

You shud check that the onboard sound is enabled in the BIOS. It usually automatically is but you can always check. It will be under the integrated tab i think.

no joy, looks like its all enabled.....

...just been into the bios, disabled the sound, went back into windows & couldn't play anything. Enabled it again & it does what it did before - gives every indcation that its playing but without the actual sound...!!!!
I can hear everything out my headphones from the front jack of the case....

Have you tried searching though PCA? I have seen like at least 4 posts about onboard sound problems with motherboards.

Ah-ah - when you connected up the front panel, you may have disabled the rear sockets - check your motherboard carefully.

manual, that is ....

...Surely the whole point of having the front sockets is to get away from replacing the socket at the rear..?? nothing about it in the manual anyway..

Hi, it sounds daft I know but, you HAVE checked that your system isn't muted, havn't you? Whenever I update my soundcard drivers I have to turn up the volume, 'cos the new install re adjusts the it. Just a thought, good luck.
