  1. hi all. thanks in advanced for any help u can offer. i have a computer running xp. my sound and video are both onboard. when i reformatted the past 2 times the sound wont work. i dont think its the drivers because i re-installed them countless times. recently i downloaded a program and it says that my S/PDIF is not supported. My chipset is as follows:

    AC'97 Audio Controller:

    Audio Controller Type VIA 686A/686B/8231
    Codec Name VIA VT1612A
    Codec ID 56494161h
    S/PDIF Output Not Supported

    if any one knows how to re-enable or any applications of programs that will please tell me. thanks alot. Jamie

    S/PDIF is for digital out, if you're not using that then I wouldn't worry about it.
    What sort of speaker system are you connecting to - 2, 4, 5.1?
