Windows 7: ASUS Rampage Extreme IV - Onboard Sound not working.

22 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
ASUS Rampage Extreme IV - Onboard Sound not working.

Hello all, this is my current build.

Sorry if I miss anything I'm in a rush getting ready for the weekend!

ASUS Rampage Extreme IV (BF3 Version)
Intel i7 3820
ASUS DirectCUII HD7970
M4 Crucial SSD
(NO SOUND CARD, Just onboard).

Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

My problem is as the title states, no sound what so ever (just static) through my headset or speakers (tried both). I have also changed BIOS settings to HDMI and all the other settings regarding the audio.

I have reformatted and installed windows again, updated everything possible (drivers) and have changed options in playback settings. All that shows up in Device Manager for Sounds is "High Definition Audio Device" and "Realtek High Definition Audio". My BIOS is also at the latest version, I have already tried previous version and have had no luck with sound.

The only thing I have in device manager which is an unknown device states this in properties... Port_#0006.Hub_#0004 I believe that is USB related though.

I've got a Razer Tiamat 7.1 sat next to me begging to be used, please help guys and girls!

Many thanks,

Anyone at all have any ideas?

Don't really fancy having to buy a soundcard considering i've heard the onboard sound is pretty good :/

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Well a problem that i had with my build was i had to update the bios because it my CPU came out after the release of the rampage formula IV. After that it has been going fine but just before every 2nd day it will freeze on me when i am playing Battlefield 3. Doin' my research on if it a fixable problem or not.

But my suggestion is to update the bios and see if it works.

P.S there is no way that you can brick it, they have duel Bios.
