    Default AsRock Extreme3 Gen 3 No Sound

    Hello,

    I've just reinstalled fully my system with Windows 7 64 bits.

    Here's a little summary of my system:

    Operating System
    MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
    CPU
    Intel Core i5 2500K @ 3.30GHz 28 C
    Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
    RAM
    8,00 Go Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz (9-9-9-24)
    Motherboard
    ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 (CPUSocket) 28 C
    Graphics
    PL2206W (1680x1050@59Hz)
    1024MB GeForce GTX 560 Ti (MSI) 35 C
    Hard Drives
    117GB Corsair Force GT (SATA) 29 C
    977GB Western Digital WDC WD10EAVS-32D7B1 (SATA) 29 C
    488GB Western Digital WDC WD5000AAKS-00A7B0 (SATA) 32 C
    488GB Western Digital WDC WD5000AAKS-00A7B0 (SATA) 33 C
    977GB Western Digital WDC WD10EARS-00MVWB0 (SATA) 27 C
    Optical Drives
    PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-215D
    Audio
    Realtek High Definition Audio


    I can't get any sound coming from my mobo, not with the speakers connected at the back neither on the front connector with Headphones.

    I checked the BIOS settings tried Onboard Audio (Enabled or Auto), downloaded the latest Realtek drivers from ASRock site but it's still mute as a dead fish.

    There seems to be no problem IMHO if i look at he device manager:



    The device is recognized and working fine.

    Has ayone encountered this problem and has anyone got a solution apart from buying a PCI sound card?

    Take care,

    In the Control Panel under Sounds>Playback Tab make sure that the correct default device is selected, ex: AMD HDMI Output, Speakers, Headphones or S/PDIF.

    Thanks for answering but that doesn't seem to be the answer, Speakers are activated and working but nothing comes out?!


    Everything looks fine.

    try setting onboard sound to enabled instead of auto,then look in realtek sound and click the folder and disable front panel audio detection or use ac97 sound,then see if you get any sound

    Well,

    I've tried evrything, but nothing seems to work.

    I still have no sound on the rear panel through my speakers, and no sound on the front panel ( i've tried HD Audio and AC 97 connected to the mobo).

    I've erased and cleaned my previous Realtek install and installed the new drivers and now i think the only reasonable option is to buy a sound card!

    A pity for a one month old mobo but i don't want to wait too long for a replacement.
