Thread: Speaker not being detected with GA-Ep45-Dq6

  1. #1

    Default Speaker not being detected with GA-Ep45-Dq6

    I recently did a case transfer. I moved all the contents of my old case to my new case. Everything appears to be working (ie usb, cpu, etc) except the sound. It's very odd. The sound card appears to be properly installed but fail to recognize when anything is plugged in.

    Here's a pic

    As you can see the soundcard is installed and working and I assure you the speakers are plugged in. yet it fails to recognize them and will not send sound to them. I've tried plugging them in every slot and it fails to recognize. The front audio/headphone jack also appears to not be working.

    I doubt my installation was faulty and I've had this problem in the past before on another board (i don't remember what i did to solve it). I'm quite stumped. I've reinstalled the latest drivers over and over and at this point I am pretty much out of ideas. Please assist. I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Have you verified that there aren't any errors in DEVICE MANAGER?

    If the front panel audio connectors aren't connected properly, this might cause an audio output problem. Try disconnecting the front panel audio connectors.

    Have you run the RealTek HD Audio Manager to verify that the speakers are properly setup in the AUDIO I/O tab?

    Is the M/S VOLUME function muted or turned all the way down?

    It's possible that your mobo mounting in your new case has a short circuit that is preventing audio output. I ALWAYS test my system with the mobo outside the computer case when doing major upgrades or changes.

    When you re-installed the audio drivers, did you use the correct version (Vista vs XP)? I don't recall if RealTek has different 32/64 bit versions.

    It often helps if you have a "signature" that lists the major components in your system.

    I'm not familiar with your mobo, but I assume it's similar to my UD3P.

    Device manager didn't show any errors.

    The front panel connectors were properly connected. I tried both the HD audio and the ac'97 to no avail.

    The MS volume was all the way up.

    All drivers were propely installed.

    I did consider the mobo mounting causing a short circuit, but I was not in a position to adjust it. It's the only remaining option to try. The only thing that concerns me is that you'd figure a short would knock out the entire sound system.

    Phenotypically, my PC is behaving like all the sound jacks are broken and everything else is fine. If all your sound jacks are broken your pc doesn't detect speakers or inputs and so sends the signal to the digital output rather than your speakers.
