  1. Hi everyone,

    I'm new to Techspot, but I have read many of the subjects for reference.

    I installed a new motherboard (Intel P4M-865G-MAX ), and power supply.
    Then, reinstalled operating system XP Home with no issues until I tried to test all the hardware. More specific to play a music CD with no sound. I have an integrated Realtex AC97 audio (6 Channel). Has XP Home Home.

    I checked all the volume controls to make sure volume was high enough and not muted. Also, checked the DirectX with the dxdiag cmd, with no problems, 2 set of speakers, and reinstalled the audio driver . Then I went to Realtek and updated the AC' 97 audio driver...Tried 2 different CD's. I reinstalled the chipset drivers too.

    I need help I don't know what is wrong..Is the audio chip bad it's a new motherboard!! Please help.

    Realtek AC97 seems to have a lot of issues with drivers... You have already got them off the internet, tried updating?

    You can always disable the on-board sound in the bios (make sure the on-board sound is enabled now) and install a PCI based sound card like the Creative Audigy SE
