Z-5500 & 680i on board?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi hi.

Just got my Z-5500 speakers and they look great, can't wait to hear what they sound like!

But until I get paid again I need to connect them to my on board sound. I have the EVGA 680i motherboard and it says on the manual that it supports 8-channel audio.

Anyways. All speakers are plugged in and connected. The color coated plugs are in as well, but I get no sound from my computer. I am able to use the "test" button on the remote and I get sound from all the speakers and the sub woofer.

So how do I get sound from my computer? In the control panel, under sound, Manage audio devices, there is only the driver for my old speakers.

Thx for any help, and I WILL get a sound card in a week and a half on pay day hehe. But i want sound between now and then =)

IDK really know but I would check the Bios options and insure Onboard/Integrated is selected for your Audio.

Oh nevermind, you do get sound when you test
Well IDK then ,sry

Look in the BIOS for the sound device. Should be in onboard devices or something like that. Then make sure you have the driver for it installed (you can get it via the included CD or internet), and then turn the volume up.

Make sure when (or if) you get a real soundcard, you uninstall the driver for the onboard, and then disable it again in the BIOS.

Thax~ for looking. But I got the speakers to work.

I have Vista, I restarted my computer and once it booted up, Vista found, downloaded and installed the drivers automatically.

I opened iTunes and I'm blown away! yay! awsome awsome speakers!! now only a sound card can make them sound even better. =)
I'm stoked!! SO happy! wohoO!

This post can be deleted if you'd like or can eheh.

Thx !
