Just wanted to post this for anyone who may be having issue with Asus motherboards not recognizing their hardware.

ESPECIALLY built in audio device, after reinstalling hardware or other reasons unknown


I have: ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 AM3+ AMD 760G HDMI USB 3.0 uATX AMD Motherboard

Now I have seen dozens of threads asking on how to fix the sound issue, and after going for a WHOLE week trying to solve it. The simple solution could be as doing a simple Disk checking for errors through Windows System tools.

Original issue:

I have reinstalled Graphics card, and that's when everything went to hell.

Windows 7 started showing Speaker icon with red x over it, and there was no sound.

Device manager showed audio as HD Audio Device and no longer VIA Audio (or whatever it's was called originally).

I have uninstalled the drivers, tried reinstalling, so it showed no Audio Device option on the actual install CD (like it was no longer there)

Navigated through the CD folders to find the driver, started installing said: "No HD Audio Device detected"

Tried downloading drivers from online, same error.

Reset BIOS

Downloaded new bios, did set up the new BIOS. Still no sound, but Device manager still saying it's working properly. CD not showing the option for install.

Reinstalled Windows 7....same issue.

Gave up, bought new audio card.

One day computer had to do Disk Error checking, due to improper shut down, and TA DAAAAAAAA

Sound CAME BACK ON.


So my suggestion do a Disk Error checking through Windows system tools, and it MIGHT just fix it.

Good luck, and I hope you don't have the same issues as me. This was pure hell when it was going down.

Since I never found the solution, but did everything myself I hope it reaches the person who is struggling like me with their set up and has no answers.
