the mainboard appears to be made by Asus, not NEC. and apparently usues the Realtek ALC655 sound chip. now that may be right or wrong, im just saying what i see from a google search.

check device manager and see if there are any yellow ! marks by the sound card?

if so you would need to re-install the drivers for the sound card. check also that your sound isnt "muted" simple mistake.... your volume icon will have a small circle with a line across if it is "similar to a stop sign" double click the volume icon to open sound properties, then remove the tick from mute.

The board appears to be, as paperman27 implies, made by Asus and rebadged by NEC; the confusion with the audio seems to be the fact that it has an SiS motherboard chipset.

You can download the Realtek ALC650/650 onboard sound chipset drivers from:

These are the latest drivers (3.96)
