Onboard sound for Asus P5GPL-X Mobo not working

  1. Greetings,

    I'm trying to resolve an issue with the onboard sound device for my ASUS P5GPL-X motherboard not working. Here's the message that I sent to their tech support:

    Their (unhelpful) response:

    I'm kind of at a loss here. Reinstalling Windows won't help since it was a fresh install both times. The system itself consists only of the minimum components, so there's nothing that I can take out and still turn it on.

    I suppose that I could just get a separate sound card, but that defeats the purpose of buying a mobo with onboard sound.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    WHen you reinstalled windows did you install your motherboard drivers before trying to install the sound drivers?

    Yes. The ASUS CD had a specific order of installation (which I followed), and that was the first one. Could it be because I'm using a USB mouse/keyboard? Doesn't make any sense, but I'm running out of ideas.

    using a USB keyboard or mouse should not be the problem. I am assuming that you are using XP do you have SP2 installed?

    For lack of a better suggestion, go into the BIOS and make sure the onboard sound is enabled. It should be already but just in case.......

    I have check in the BIOS, and Audio is enabled.

    Here is my hardware :
    CPU : Intel PIV 32.ghz 640
    MOBO : ASUS P5GPL-X with integrated Ethernet, audio and USB ports
    80 GB SATA 8M
    MEMORY 512 MB + 512 MB MAJOR
    Graphic Card 6200 nvidia 128 mb
    LG DVD Burner +-RW 16X

    There seems to be a hardware conflict. Is there any ways to diagnose hardware conflicts?

    My hardware is quite minimal. I cannot really remove any part. What should I do, next ?

    Windows tell me the following conflicts/shared :

    I/O Port 0x00000000-0x00000CF7 PCI bus
    I/O Port 0x00000000-0x00000CF7 Direct memory access controller

    Memory Address 0xA0000-0xBFFFF PCI bus
    Memory Address 0xA0000-0xBFFFF VgaSave ​

    Any suggestions?
