Windows 7: New Motherboard, No Sound

Hey guys, thanks for your responses... I just messed around in the BIOS settings and in the Advanced, Chipset options I did see AMD HDMI Audio was enabled. I disabled and restarted it, but then it just plain said no sound was installed. I re-enabled it and saw under "Onboard Devices Configuration" that the HD Audio Controller was enabled. I disabled that and it didn't work so I re-enabled it. Front Panel Select had two options: HDMI and AC97. It was set to HDMI, so I tried AC97 and that didn't work so now it's back.

As for my speaker setup, I have two different speakers. One is a subwoofer attached to 5 different speakers and one is a really cheap and simple pair of speakers that simply plugs in to the computer. Both those speakers are known to work and I hear nothing out of them. My headphones are a nice pair... they used to work with the last setup.

It comes down to the fact that either the Realtek sound doesn't work, or it is disabled. If it were correct, obviously it would appear in the Device Manager. I may have overlooked it, but I read where you found the HD sound, and disabled/enabled it, but it wasn't clear that you enabled the regular realtek onboard sound. If you are positive that it is enabled, and it doesn't appear in the Device Manager, even after installing the driver, then I would say that you have another lemon motherboard.

Have you been to the Asus web site and searched for recent updated audio drivers?

I'd trust Asus drivers before Realtek's drivers.

Thanks again everyone for putting your heads together on this one. My songs must be great because I've had many obstacles thrown in my way to prevent me from finishing them. I've done all I can do and I'm going to take it to get professionally fixed... I just have no idea and it's really frustrating. If he can solve it, I will post what it ended up being.

There's one last thing you can check before you call it a day.
Check the Levels tab and make sure that "Front" is not at zero.

Eureka!

OK so here is the answer to the riddle. First, my computer wouldn't start and I spent 2 weeks troubleshooting it with the old and new motherboard until I got so frustrated I took it in to be professionally repaired. They repaired it and it booted but then it had no sound at all. I troubleshot THAT for a couple weeks, tried everything until I got so frustrated that I took it again and paid again to be repaired. My new songs must be the best in the world because something doesn't want them being released to the world.

My PC repair tech tried the motherboard in his Ubuntu system as well as a whole bunch of other diagnostics and it turns out that I just have horrible luck and bought another lemon motherboard. The first motherboard was Gigabyte and it had problems from the start with the memory so I bought an ASUS which turns out to have bad sound on the motherboard. I purchased a soundcard for 30 bucks and now I have working sound again. I don't know what the odds are for 2 back to back horrible motherboards but anyway thanks for your help and I can now finish my songs.

Glad you got a workaround to work. Your luck doesn't surprise me, because I've had far worse than that. I've found that the odds of a lemon motherboard are much higher than for any other component. That is why I now stick with only brands that I know something about, and even that doesn't necessarily eliminate the problems.
