|Just clean reinstalled this system - based on an Asus A7n8xVM motherboard. Everything installs fine except for the integrated sound. A soundcard is recognised and I've used the drivers from the Asus website which it happily accepted so no errors in Device Manager, however no sound comes out of the output, either to speakers or headphones. The one peculiar thing is that AIDA doesn't recognise any soundcard as being installed (it should be a standard AC'97 Realtek) but in the summary it does recognise an NVidia sound codec as being installed, also when updating the sound drivers over the internet it comes back as an NVidia sound controller, which also installs quite happily, but still no sound. Next stage is to install a cheap separate card, but has anyone got any ideas what's happening here apart from loose connectors on the mobo?|
