Default No sound :( please help, Soltek SL-75FRN2 and AMD.....

So I just started a new job and did a fresh install of XP.

The motherboard is a soltek SL-75FRN2-L with a AMD 2600+.

I installed the drivers just like it says to in the book, the all in 1 first then i istalled the Realtek AC 97 drivers but no sound.

I have checked the bios, looked though all the truble shooting guides and still no luck.

WTF, is there a wire thay maybe was not connected or is the audio out directly attached to the board. I have also tried all output ports and everytihng with no luck.

I have installed/ removed /reinstalled 10 times

Anyone have any info that may help?

Have you tried downloading the latest drivers for it? And are your speakers plugged in correctly?

Music, System tones, Like beeps, i have gone though ALL of the trubleshooting guides
with no avail

The volume isnt turned down, im wondering if anytying needs to be plugged into the motherboard where it attaches to the output jacks. Like a wire or something or is the on board stuff already set up.

Yeah I am wondering about this, i think it may be the wrong drivers for the card, like maybe its a sound max but thye have realtek drivers.

I used the nvidia ones from teh nvidia website but they did not work, do i need the AC 97 for sound to work?

The one that comes with it is Realtek?? Does anyone have this mobo or konw a soltek site?

I got my sound drivers from nvidia's site and I have sound so that shouldn't be the issue. Try rightclicking My Computer and go to Properties. Go to the Hardware tab and then Device Manager. Go to the part that says something about sound or sound devices, etc. and click the plus box so it's a minus and tell me what you see.

Is there any red x's by any of them and if not then try right clicking and going to properties and then troubleshoot.

Another thing that might be worth checking is, is it set up?
Go into BIOS (del at startup) and find where it says 'Onboard Audio (or sound)' and enable this if its not already (It might be in the one that says Advanced Chipset Features'. Then go to Save and Exit within the BIOS. Because remember that it is an onboard motherboard chip and might not be activated

Then restart, and see if it works.
If it doesn't try this:

Delete those drivers using the Device Manager in the control panel, System and install these instead:

http://drivers.soft32.com/driver/dow...C97-24553.html

Then install these and do a restart.

Then go to windows and see if it works
I hope it does

Yeah okay. You shouldn't be getting these problems though, I'm sorry.

When you have the computer on though, does a speaker cone icon appear in the taskbar on the right?

Do you get onboard sound? Maybe the motherboard is broke.

Thats weird then, so the driver is setup. If it wasn't, the devices wou;dn't even be able to go to high, they'd be blanked out.

Is mute on any of them for instance?

Are the speakers plugged into the right port at the back? Usually a green one for stereo

Ok so update ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

I cleared the CMOS but that acomplished nothing.

The only thing i can HEAR is when i raise and lower the volume, i can hear distortion though the jack, thats all i can hear though just the chaning of volume/watts though the jack,

SO still no sound, i have installed about every driver on this earth no luck
All my volumes are set full, none are muted
