Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 32-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Hello, about the CMOS battery, I don't know where I can buy and I don't know how to replace as well. But if I got time and money I will try to research on how to replace it.

I followed what you said and I downloaded the 2007 audio driver in the manufacturer site. And I run in on compatibility. Then it successfully installed, however, after restart, it told me "No ADI Codec installed" and still got red x mark in task bar tray. So I searched for google till I found this blog that the solution really worked for me:

So to other people that got same problems after installing SoundMax driver, they just have to follow your instructions then later on the instructions on the upper link.

Now I got this:

And my sounds is fully working now and I can party hehehe.

Thank you so much for helping me, especially the jumper thing, it really works. And it can be mark as solved now. <3 <3

More power to this forums.

Windows 7 ultimate x64

the CMOS battery you could get them Watch shops ... these are round and flat... thats the only battery in motherboard...

Well good to hear it worked... The reason i was asking you to change the battery is that...if the CMOS battery is weak .. the setting in BIOS will not stay ...and you will have the same problem of no audio... So keep that in mind and get it changed asap.

Please do mark the thread as closed.. and REP those helped...
