Cant get Sound to work on ECS K7SOM+ M-Board

  JAYSO 22:38 20 Jul 05

I have a AMDXP 1.17ghz chip installed on the board. After installing XP I cannot get the on-board sound to work despite loading all the drivers from the CD. Every thing looks fine in the device manager. Has anyone come across this prob before? Is it simply a case of a faulty chip on the board?

Is it (on-board sound) Enabled in the Bios?

Re the Device Manager, is it Enabled in the drop down menu from its Propreties?

It is on board sound and I have checked the bios and it is enabled. I have also checked the properties in the device manager and it reports that the device is working properly??

Then have you checked out the Volume Control panel? You may have muted or turned the sliders down in one or more sections.

Also check out the Sounds and Audio Devices' Properties from Control Panel and that programs or applications that use sound - such as Windows Media Player - haven't had the Mute button enabled inadvertently or the volume level lowered.

I've got a similar problem at present with a friend's modem in his system. Everything is listed as hunkey dorey, yet the modem can't be found when attempting to dial out...:-(

Going to try my own modem in it later today.
