    hey folks

    i have this here nice new pc, with this mobo:

    http://uk.giga-byte.com/MotherBoard/...-8IG1000MK.htm

    now, it has a realtek AC97 o/b, so shouldnt be any hassles... anyway, i connected up my little speakers, and coulnt hear a thing - tried CDs, tried Windows WAV sounds, tried everything - bbut nothing. then tried switching to my headset, and once again - heard zilcho.

    the only i managed to hear - were some squeaks of the music, at a specific position, when the speakers were plugged into the MIC plug (!!).
    the SYSTEM shows everything is cool, all drivers installed.

    so... have they forgotten to connect something inside my box? or what am I missing ??

    many thanks :)
    Sn

    PS: also checked the in BIOS setup, AC97 is set to Auto (its either Auto, or disabled)

    Are you using the right mode? IE: 6channel, 2channel etc.

    Go into the soundcard properties and be sure that it's setup right for your speaker configuration. Ya are usin' powered speakers I hope.

    thanks guys.

    in reply to your questions:

    yea, i am using in the correct mode: 2 channel for stereo output, and its confgiured for "desktop stereo speakers" - cos all they are are simple little boxes (which worked fine in my P3 machine). BTW - what are "power speakers "?

    BTW - i also updated the AC97 driver which was very slightly not the newest (by 3 months), and it seemed to correct the jack sensoring, which wasnt doing too well before. but it hasnt done anything yet for the sound...

    thanks....

    "Powered Speakers" means that they have an external power source for amplification. The little unpowered ones won't likely work as they can't amplify the sound.

    recheck your connections[if you're only using 2 speakers,it should be hooked up to lime green colored jack]also make sure speaker power cord is plugged in and turned on.

    You must have a setting wrong somewhere in the Audio Properties. Is the wave&Volume turned up?

    yes, i've looked at every setting i can find, all are up.
    i wish i could find it!

    i've chcked the BIOS, its set to auto there, i've checked the "Sound and Audio devices", i've checked the device manager, the "AC3 filter" ...

    whats else can it be? :afro: (= that was what i looked like before i pulled all my hair out...)

    thanks...
