    It's a shame this post ended abruptly with out getting to the solution.

    I have the same issue. Moving on from XP I formated and installed Windows 7 x64 bit on my computer. After the re-install I spent about 8 hours transfer all the databack and setting up programs only to notice I had no sound or cd.

    I fixed the CD issue by having to delete the low something value in the registry. Sorry I need to mention the motherboard was produced in a time of window7 and supports it.

    The sound though wow what a problem it is... The computer will install the realtek software however under device manager it only shows a HD device and non of the other sound stuff you normally see like audio codecs.

    I have
    1. Used the driver from the CD
    2. Downloaded the driver from the MOBO website.
    3. Downloaded the realtek drivers from their site.
    4. Uninstalled (I think it is called) the UUAC driver in under system in control panel

    I definitely have come to the conclusion it is an INF driver issue and the board is not reaching out to it's parts of the motherboard coz so it doesn't understand what is going on out their, as when I try to install the INF drivers again they don't install they just skip to finish on the wizard. I unstand there is no uninstall for INF drivers.

    I am at a cross roads now of
    1. Hunt down the INF drivers and replace them manually. Although the registry may also need to point at the files in which case the registry could be missing keys :(
    2. Continue crying (this hasn't worked much though)
    3. Go through a nuke and pave of windows.

    OMG.. I got the model number off the printing on the motherboard, but on the manual it says it's was a version v3 but not on the motherboard.

    I checked the Asus and found they had seperate download pages and one of the changes was they swapped the audio chipset from a Realtek to VIA HD Audio on the version 3 model of the motherboard.

    I am so angry now, I need to go into a rain forrest and do some 80s style punch-dancing to vent my rage!

    I have a HP Pavilion TS 15 notebook PC with windows 10. I have the X next to the speaker. I've been trying every solution on-line regarding this problem but nothing is working. I made the mistake of deleting the drivers, at the time there was a real tek driver with the yellow ! ans a AMD. since I deleted both only the amd is installed, I need help, please.

    Notebook - speakers are internal - red X 'no speaker found' (HAH)

    You probably should start by rebooting and trying to install realtek drivers.

    On my desktop, similar. Plugged earphones into front sound port which 'disables' speaker. Rebooted. Removed earphones. Rebooted. Speakers now 'discovered'.

    Might work - no promises.

    I think it was caused by a Windows 10 update.

    I know this is like 6 years old but I'd like to thank you guys. I read the forum post, went to device manager to screw with my drivers and by no hand of my own, realtek was installed.

    You clearly haven't installed the right driver for your version / build of Windows. Did you download the driver for your computer's exact model from the manufacturer's website?
