No sound from on board sound device.

By sloowwhand ·
I just finished building a PC and do not get any sound from my speakers. Motherboard is a Soyo K7VTA-Pro, Chipset is VIA KT-133A with 686B AGP. The on board audio is AC-97, Sigmatel AC Codec Chip. Processor is an AMD 1.33 Ghz Athlon Tbird 266 Mhz FSB. The OS is Win98se. Everything is working great except I do not get any sound from my speakers. The speakers work on another PC ok. In BIOS the on board sound chip is enabled. I have installed the correct driver from the MB CD and also downloaded updated drivers from the Soyo-Tech web site and still no sound. Thanks for any help with this.

Since you have onboard sound, don't bother checking for audio cables, it should work with IDE cable. Check your mainboard's installation CD, see if there's software for AC-97 codec for Win98. Make sure ALL required software was installed.

On this particular MB there is no dongle cable (IDE if that is what you are referring to) for the sound. The speaker connectors are built right in the MB and are at the back panel. I did install the AC-97 codec for Win98 from the MB CD and also downloaded the updated driver from the Soyo web site with out any success. Thanks for your response on this.

One thing to check, you are using amplified speakers aren't you? The older ones did not have amplification as the sound boards had the amplifier internally. Just a thought.

This is not an older MB. It supports AMD 1.33 Ghz Athlon Tbird with a 256 Mghz FSB. Thanks for your response.

Well as you say you have a proper driver, proper setup, the OS installed run smoothly except, the sounds. (Hope You get done all the sound parameters in Windows)

May be it is physical problem of the built-in sound card. Go to your vendor and replace it. That's the best thing to do...

SYRUPHIN?

Thank you for your response. I did some research on answer #3 from "Chas". I will be trying his tips out and if that does not work then I will try to get some Tech Support from Soyo (God Help Me if it comes to that). Which most likely will mean replacing the MB. I will be trying #3 this morning. I will keep you posted.

4/06/02 So far the advice from "Chas" is the best idea. I will be trying his advice out this morning and will let all of you know the outcome. Thank you all for your help.
