Try this out for your sound card issue............

by Peconet Tietokoneet In reply to Reltek Alc850 reset

Click on:
Start > settings > control panel, and then click on the "system" icon. From there select "Device Manager" and click "continue". Find your "Reltek Alc850" under the "sound" section and right click on it and select "Delete". You must re-start your computer for any changes. When your computer has re-booted, your computer will apply the correct driver, if not, you will have to insert your motherboard drivers disk to load on your sound drivers or any drivers that you need.
Hope all works out for you.

Is your motherboard new?.
If so, then you will need to do an update of the BIOS to iron out the problem that you are having.

What is the brand of your M'Board?

by OH Smeg In reply to Reltek Alc850 reset

I can not find any reference to an AV8 on the ASUS Web Site but A Bit does have an AV8 M'Board as shown here

And the correct Audio Driver is available here

and is labeled as Bit and ASUS are different brands and you need to look at the correct makers Web Site for the correct Driver for your M'Board.

Also neither A Bit or ASUS support the Hardware Reset Function of the Realtech Chipset you have to rely in using Software.

A couple of checks

by Jacky Howe In reply to Reltek Alc850 reset

Check in your BIOS to make sure that the onboard sound is turned on.
Did you run the compatability test before installing Vista.
Press the Winkey + Pause/Break and to the left you will see Windows Update.
(The WinKey is also known as the "Windows key", "Windows logo key" or "Start key" on your keyboard)

Click on it and let it run.
Over on the right you will see View available updates, click it and see if there are any drivers listed for the sound card.
If there is, install them.

Edit: spelling
