[solved] No sound after clean xp install. Help?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I just did a clean install (xp) on a new HD. I installed all the mobo drivers, and did all the windows updates, and am now on sp3. My computer thinks it's making sounds, but it isn't.

Device manager shows that all sound components are working correctly, Realtek AC97 shows that everything is working correctly. I have tried the speakers and headset in both the back and front panels. I can hear dead air, but no sounds. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the correct drivers from Realtek a few times, but nothing has helped.

Any ideas?

Maybe instead of trying the "newest" drivers, you could try the ones off the CD that came with your motherboard? I see you're running the same board as I do. I'd just try out the ones that come on the CD . Those never gave me any issues....even after upgrading to SP3.

Also check and see if the ac97 connector from the front panel is conflicting with the motherboard audio ; ).

Pioneer:

Thanks. I should have made it a little more clear, but I did use the CD initially. It didn't work. I downloaded the newer drivers (which in actuality, I think are the same thing still) and they didn't work, so I went back to the original mobo drivers.

Hairston:

Yeah, my boyfriend keeps telling me that too. I was gonna try it, I just forgot to last night. But would that affect the back panel audio as well? And would i be hearing dead air?

Actually there MAY be an issue here that needs some attention .

If you have front panel audio wires plugged into the motherboard, then you've obviously already removed the jumpers that WERE there from the factory. If you no longer have the cable connected....put the jumpers back. Also...if you are using an aftermarket card....remove the jumpers and disable onboard in BIOS.

Hope that helps. Also....check your BIOS to make sure that your sound is enabled if you are in fact using onboard.

Now that you mention it, I don't remember removing any jumpers at all. The board was already in use before this last HD, so it has been a while since those original jumpers were there. I also don't remember connecting the front panel to the mobo specifically, so maybe I have it in the wrong connection, and it's messing with the sound.

I'll check this out as soon as I get home. Good idea. I'll have to apologize to my boyfriend now, for kinda blowing off his suggestion. Oops.

BTW, I am using the onboard, and I did check to make sure that it is enabled in BIOS. Thanks!

I use the A8N32-SLI Deluxe (if that's the system board you're indeed experiencing the audio problems with), but I don't recall any jumpers on the board governing audio function.

A wild suggestion: Have you checked the BIOS to see if the onboard audio is enabled?

Solved. I had to add jumpers over the pins for the AD97 FSB connector.

I can't use the FSB sound ports now, but it's all good. Problem solved.

Glad you got it all sorted out . Yeah...it took me a few looks into the manual to figure that one out on mine . Kinda tricky.
