    Default Trouble with Gigabyte motherboard and Sound?

    I recently build my computer because my old one broke down, but I can't seem to get the sound to work... When I open up the Properties for Sound and Audio, it reads that there is no Audio Device. Running Windows XP.

    Something else that I noticed that could affect it, is that when I pulled up the Device Manager, over Other Devices there was a yellow (?) and right under it, a tag labeled "PCI Device" with a yellow question mark. When I went to update it, I got a message that said the Hardware could not be installed.

    It's a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Rev 2.0

    The drivers I've installed from the DvD that came with it are:
    1. INF Update Utility
    2. Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio (Not Installed)
    3. Realtek HD Audio Driver
    4. Realtek RTL8168/8111 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC Driver
    Intel ICH USB 2.0 Driver

    I went to get all of the updates from for the motherboard and downloaded/installed them all.

    In the Integrated Peripherals section in the bios, what is the setting for Azalia Codec?
    [Disabled] will prevent the on-board Realtek audio from working, such as if you wanted to use an add-in audio card.
    [Auto] enables the on-board Realtek audio.

    Download the most recent Realtek audio driver/software for XP from Realtek or a reputable download site.
