Go into your bios and make sure your onboard audio is actually enabled.

If it is, then go here to download your driver

Select which ever is compatible with your version of windows.
I went into my BIOS and I couldn't see anything to do with audio in any of the parts, I went through it all..nothing.

Oh and I have downloaded from the Foxconn website, and installed. My Realtek things are in Program Files, but not in Device Manager or anything..

hmm, that's odd.

You checked in the part that says "Integrated Peripherals"?

Well assuming you did, have you tried one of the drivers from the link I supplied?

edit to add: okay, well then uninstall ALL realtek drivers in your add remove program list. EVERYTHING. Then, reboot and reinstall using the link I provided.

Did you uninstall the drivers from your add remove program list? I'm confused what you're saying "yes I have" to. =]

Hey no problem about helping.

Yes to your question, when i asked it you had not edited it.

One day I woke up to a parcel with 4GB of brand new RAM in it, so I shut down my PC and take out old RAM, but to do so I unscrewed my GFX Card and sat it to the side of the PCI slot, so I wouldnt have to to take out the DVi and VGA cables. Next I booted up my PC, and no sound. Weird. huh? I don't think I did anything else. I also think Windows tried to find drivers for it and said "Oi that isnt a genuine version of windows, and now I am not even sure if it is. Thanks to some guy who 'knew something about PCs...' Anyway, that is the story a little clearer.

try using driver cleaner...and then install the realtek drivers...maybe there are some leftovers.I think the mobo wont start if the audio chip would be damaged(i might be wrong).

It sounds like it is either a hardware problem that can be fixed in bios or a driver conflict.

I know this goes completely against what I criticize all the time, but what would you need to do before reinstalling windows? Do you have somewhere to backup your files or a disk image you can format to?

I spent probably hours trying to fix a friends computer who was having the same problems except this just happened randomly, without a hardware change. I was never able to fix it so I tried a re-installation of Vista which was able to bring the sound back to the way it was before.

I have had problems with his hard drive corrupting itself before, so I was wondering if you have had any problems with the hard drive you are currently using?

Hi drakan66,

Another option is to go into your device control and check your output. Make sure it's not "digital"

Edit to add: hmm, maybe you can reset your bios? You know how to do that??

Hohoho...It is funny you should say that because for some reason when I start up my PC it asks me if I want to check my Hard Drive, I always skip it because it gets to stage 2 of 3 (10%) and freezes, I have left it for over 20 hours at one point.

and to reset bios, should I remove the little circuit breaker thing on the plugs on the MOBO or remove the small battery? (for a few seconds)

Really appreciate all of the help!
