Windows 7: No Audio from front or back panel jacks.

01 Apr 2012   #1

Win 7 x64
No Audio from front or back panel jacks.

I have this motherboard. and get no audio when I plug in headphones in the front or back ports. I'm running win 7 so there aren't compatible drivers available on asus site,

I tried downloading the vista x64 and installing them in compatibility mode but the device manager shows "High Definition Audio Device" so I think it's still using a generic windows driver.

Also tried these: Realtek

Sound>Playback shows Digital Audio (S/PDIF) and sound bars move while playing a mp3 or movie but still no audio. Usually speakers and headphones show up I though? I don't even see them when I choose show disabled devices. I tested usb headphones and got audio but I really need those 3.5 jacks to work.

The audio on this board is: Realtek ALC662, 6-CH High-Definition Audio CODEC

I've also reset the bios, and the mic shows up and receives data when plugged in but still no sound.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I'm still looking for suggestions. I'm wondering if buying a newer sound card would work.

Vista drivers should work OK, and in the native Win 7, you don't have to use a compatibility mode. Give that a try.
Also, check the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel. Your "Speakers" (Realtek) should be set as the default audio playback device. You can also configure the speaker type in that panel.
