Solved: ASUS P4S800 Motherboard - no sound

Q: Solved: ASUS P4S800 Motherboard - no sound

I have a PC clone with a ASUS P4S800 motherboard with integrated sound. I have tried to load drivers from the motherboard CD to download SoundMax. In system's hardware devices under Sound, Video and game controllers there is: Audio Codecs, Legacy Audio Drivers, Legacy Video Capture devices, Media Control devices, SoundMax Integrated Digital Audio with a yellow exclamation mark and Standard game port and Video Codecs.

I have uninstalled the Soundmax three time and everytime I re-installed, I would get the yellow ! in a triangle and a warning saying it is corrupt.

What can I do to fix this?

Thanks, Sparkknock

I have an ASUS P4S800-MX Motherboard. It was working fine, but i didnt turn it on in a while. When i did it booted fine but the next time i tried to boot it, only the fans would work. It didnt beep and it wont even turn off or reset. Please help.

A:Irregular Boot Issues with ASUS P4S800-MX Motherboard

First of all, try a different power supply if you have one.

If you don't have a spare you can test your current power supply by unplugging it from everything, then shorting the green wire to any of the blacks with a spare bit of wire.

If it fires up as normal, then try reconnecting just the motherboard, if there's no improvement, check the seating of your graphics card, ram, processor, and any other cards you may have.

If this doesn't help, let me know and i can suggest a few more things to try.

I have an Asus P4S800 motherboard with an Intel 3.0. Last night my computer just shut straight off like the CPU was too hot. I checked and that is what I was getting. It would go on and off, then power button wouldn't work and what not. Now, I start my computer and it says the system hung due to incorrect CPU speed though the speed is correct. The computer won't even make it to Windows now and I can't figure out what the problem is. Any ideas?

A:ASUS P4S800 Nightmare!

Is it home-built or a commercial PC? If commercial, what make and model number?
Are you able to get into BIOS or not? Have you tried re-setting BIOS, either by using the jumper for this function or by removing the CMOS battery for about half an hour? (If you do remove the battery, don't damage the holder and ensure you replace the battery the right way up).
Did it ever work properly? If so, how long for? Were the motherboards identical or different makes and/or models?
Have you made a fresh installation of Windows XP for the current motherboard or are you trying to run a hard drive with an old installation of XP that was set up on a different motherboard from the one you have now?
With 3 dead motherboards, the most likely cause is a defective power supply.

the drivers pack i have is for XP only

is there anyway i can get drivers for Win 7

A:Drivers for ASUS P4S800-MX SE

Looking up your mobo, I see that there are no drivers available for it under windows 7 from Asus. You could try and look up each individual driver manufacturer and see if they have released a driver for windows 7. Example, your realtek audio manufacturer does have a driver that works for windows 7/8. You also might want to update your BIOS to the latest version, but I only see a beta version update for your mobo.

A:ASUS p4s800 & SiS648FX Specs

Not sure if FastWrite will do anything significant. You compared to PCs running same gfx and mobo?

Try disabling HyperThreading. Sometimes HT can slow you down. You have a good computer (...*cough*5900*cough*) so you should be getting high scores.

Also, why go with the SiS chipset? Did you buy this pre-built?

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Here`s what you should do. Make sure you have your old card in the pc then go into device manager(i`m assuming your os is xp) click on the +sign next to display adaptors right click on your card and select uninstall once the uninstall is complete restart your pc.

Once your pc has restarted you will be prompted to install the drivers again just cancel this.

Now shut down your pc take out the old card and insert the new one start your pc and you should be prompted to install the drivers for you new card you can cancel this if you wish and just use the installation disk that came with the new card.

once your done restart your pc and go into bios set the AGP Aperture size to 128.

Hope this helps Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

I've been having a rather irritating problem with my NVIDIA graphics card. Ever since I installed the card, it has been outputting sound through the card instead of through my onboard audio. Since I do not want to purchase an HDMI to DVI cable to play sound through my monitor, I was wondering how to redirect the audio to play through my motherboard so I can hear sound again. I have tried resetting BIOS settings, reinstalling all drivers for sound card, motherboard, and gpu, and I have poked around 100's of forums, and tried everything. I'm even considering buying a different brand of card because this stupid thing has created so many problems.

A:No Sound: Realtek Asus Motherboard Win7 64bit

I was just told to try a repair install. Looking at the repair install info here I was told by the poster NOT to do this if a recovery did not work.
As I said I am so confident that something somewhere was deleted, removed, blocked, broke or corrupted with my internal software. This is not a hardware issue.

What are the important audio files that I should make sure still exist on my computer? In order for computers to play any audio files what .dll, .exe, .com files must exist in windows or on my computer? I want to verify they are there.

While I have been trouble shooting my issue I found this post:

My Avast! program recognized Audiodg.exe as a malicious file and removed it. Since then, I have not been able to get sound on my system.
I have looked for a place to download and restore the Audiodg.exe file, but am unable to find it anywhere.
In my sound playback devices, when I try to 'test' my sound, I get an error "failed to play test tone". My audio drivers are all up to date."

This problem seems similar to mine as I had that Avast program and also recently found spyware. Is this something I should investigate - my computer deleting important audio files, these files becoming corrupt or accidental deletion of such files by me? If so which ones should I look for?

Even if I checked your solution I will check it again if you think I should. Even if you think it is not worth a mention - mention it!

I can hear a sound from the fan on my motherboard. I thought it was the CPU HS fan, but now Iam not so sure. There is a fan located right below, plugged in to the PWR_FAN connector. It's just this small fan with a faceplate. It is hard to tell, but I am quite sure it is this fan. It has been going on for about 4 days. First for a few minutes on startup, now almost constant. My motherboard is an Asus A8V-E Deluxe. Should I be worried? If it needs replacing, will it be difficult , I see it has a tiny little heatsink, does it need thermal paste? Excuse my terminology, but I am trying to describe things as best as I know how.

Hi I have a Asus motherboard P8Z77-V LX, which according to the spec the LAN supports speeds up to 1000 mps
I live in the UK and virgin media have upgraded my 100 meg internet to 152, I can't get speeds beyond 65 meg. I contacted there tech support, and they remotely checked my PC and told me my LAN only goes up to 100 MPs and I would need a new lan adapter.
There screens of my control panel what the virgin media tech was checking.
I have a virgin media super hub version one directly wired to the desktop, it also has a ps3 wired and virgin TiVo box.
Any advise or help would be appreciated.

A:Solved: Asus motherboard P8Z77-V LX LAN only 100 mps

From what you have said and what you haven't said one possibility is a defective ethernet cable. Remember that 100 Mbps uses four wires while gigabit requires all eight.

A:Solved: Asus sabertooth z77 motherboard

I am not sure there is a "comparability chart" for motherboards and PSUs. When getting PSU you should consider total power consumption of your projected devices, maybe leave few watts for future add-ons and make sure it will fit in your case.

Posting on behalf of a friend who's having some problems.

He has this on startup:

asus express gate installation is incomplete

Then it goes to a screen that says press any button to reboot or from software. Press any key but nothing happens.

His motherboard is Asus M4N75TD, NF 750a SLI, AM3, PCI-E 2.0 (x16), DDR3 1066/1333/2200(OC), SATA 3Gb/s RAID, ATX.

It was fine one minute, he was gaming away, and then he wandered off for a coffee, came back and it was shut down. Upon starting, he got the error.

Any ideas?

I'm looking at the M2N32-SLI Premium Vista Edition

It says that it supports SLI. Does that mean I HAVE to use an Nvidia graphics card or can I use an ATI HD2900 instead? The description makes it a little confusing, making it sound like I MUST go w/ Nvidia to use this motherboard.

Thanks for the help!

Hi all, Well I got a problem that is something of a mystery for me. I bought this motherboard at a going out of business sale. It was boxed and sealed. I mounted it and the green power light lit; but no fans turned. No video, nothing! The processor or ram could have been the problem so I changed them... same thing! I changed the power supply... same thing. So call Asus tech support and they were about as computer useful as a bag full of roofing hammers. Oh and my warranty expired 30 days ago.. hurray for me! SO I bought a new Bios chip for it, Asus's Idea not mine, and installed the thing... same result! So I could use some help on getting this MOBO running. Please and Thank you! joan

Hi Guys
Just ordered the above mobo and was reading some reviews about it, every comment said what a great board it was apart from the noisey chipset fan.
One comment even recommend ordering a new fan as a spare because it will fail.
My question is does anyone know if Asus has corrected this problem or will I just have to order a spare?
As it has not been deliverd yet I was thinking of changing it for the SLI version, which I did not really need as I am not into gaming.
Any views or comments appreciated.

A:Solved: No Sound - Asus MoBo onboard sound

I'd suspect a faulty audio chipset. The hardware being recognized and the drivers installing aren't an indication that the hardware is actually functional.

With that being said, try a different version of the RealTek drivers. Try using the latest version available from Asus. If those don't work, try the latest version directly from RealTek.

I've been waiting for the ASUS Striker Extreme motherboards to be available in my local store and e-tailers online and alas, there're still not available. I'm actually reaching the point where I'm starting to go off the Striker Extreme motherboard. Recently I saw an Abit IN9 32x-MAX mobo, and personally from what I read, I believe it's virtually the same as the Striker Extreme mobo, besides from the fancy LCD poster screen at the back, etc. So I am now wondering, which one should I get? Should I continue waiting for the ASUS Striker Extreme mobo? Or should I just get the Abit IN9 32x-MAX? Any thoughts anyone? Also does anyone know if there are any other differences between these 2 motherboards at all?

Hi guys. I am stuck yet again! I am trying to use my motherboard's sound device. I have had to remove my sound card as I needed the PCI slot for something else. I am unable to use my motherboard instead even though I know that it has a sound device. I have tried everything (I have even read the motherboard instructions!) but I am stuck. Can anyone help?

My speakers and headphones are crackling a lot while playing all audio. It's happening on the following devices:

Speakers, USB Headphones, 3.5mm headphones in to motherboard. I figured that this HAS to be a sound card issue ( onboard ) so I have found an exteral USB sound card and even through this device, it's still happening.

Can anyone point me in the right direction here? I'm assuming a motherboard fault at the moment because I honestly don't know where else to look, but I don't understand how it could be.

My specs are:
Asrock 890GX
External Soundcard: Creative USB Sound Blaster
Headphones (USB): Corsair HS1
Headphones (3.5mm): ATH-ES7

Any help would be appreciated.

Just installed a new hard drive in a Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 laptop. I have installed Windows XP which was straightforward. However I haven't got any of the discs that were originally supplied with the machine, and it will not play video or produce any sound. From previous XP installs, I'm thinking that this is motherboard-driver related. I'm not sure what motherboard it has but I think (from looking at Device Manager) that it has an Intel 82852/82855 chipset. Where's the best place to download the driver? I've looked at Intel's site but got confused! The laptop is not connected to the interweb currently so I will have to download any drivers to my PC, burn them and then install from disc.
Any help very greatly received.

A:is there a better motherboard than asus?

It's all a matter of opinion, there is no "better" motherboard. One company's board has several great features and other less great features, missing features etc that other companys board might make up for but yet have it's own flaws also.

You just have to figure out which board has the features that you need and can take advantage of for, also considering the price, compatibility, etc.

A:ASUS motherboard help

It could be a motherboard problem. If it has told you that it failed both a VGA test and a RAM test, you can assume that it is not those components at fault. Do you have another motherboard to test in it?

You might also try testing the power supply, but I doubt that is the culprit.

Lastly, welcome to TechSpot! :wave:

Hi, I happened to have an old motherboard lying around, so I decided to make a computer out of it. The problem that arose was that I attached a 12v molex connector to two wires with another connector which leads to these pins that usually you would attach the case power and HDD Light and Power Light. When I did this I booted up and the board would not start. I know I did something wrong, that I fed it 12v, and possibly might have fired it. Any clue to how I could get it running again???

ANYONE out there who has built a PC designed specifically for Home Media usage EG: movies, photos, etc ( not gaming) using a ASUS Intel motherboard 775, CPU E8400, P35, XP PRO, as I'm unsure which board might be the best all rounder.


A:asus motherboard

Have you chosen the computer case you are going to use yet?

For a home media PC, the one defining factor is available "space". (meaning how large of a computer case are you going to use?)

A smaller case may limit you a Micro ATX or smaller MB, low-profile video/audio card or integrated video/audio, low profile CPU heatsink/fan, etc. A smaller case will also mean a lower power PSU which may also limit your choice of other parts.
