my comp's spec: freshly loaded Windows XP Pro 3200 AMD64 CPU 512 PCI-E ATI x1600 A8N-SLI DELUXE mobo Okay, so here is the problem. Everything seems to work fine but the SOUND. I can't seem to get the sound to work. It seems as though the mobo detects that I have plugged the speaker in the back of my computer, but something is wrong with the device. here is a picture of the Connector Sensing. If you notice the picture, in the blue box it shows that I have it connected in the back. But there is some kind of problem with my device that I have installed. I've tried to install every type of compatible setups for the onboard sound card, but it seem as though it doesn't work. Wondering if anyone could identify my problem. Currently have Realtek AC'97 Audio in Device Manager. if that helps anything.
