Anything in the BIOS
If you have the mobo, did you install the sound drivers from the driver CD that came with the mobo? I suspect from the symptoms that the drivers have not been installed.
The manual should tell you what sound chip and sound driver the mobo uses if it is not the AC97.
Have installed all drivers and it still has no sound..
AC97?? i have no clue what yaou meen
It means you have on-board sound
The BIOS will probably only say "Sound". Should be set to
"Auto". If that is not a choice, then "On". This is usually set correctly as a default. It sounds to me like you didn't install sound (probably not listed as sound)
checked the whole thing.. cannot find anything to do with sound.. as i said in a previous post i am a complete newb on anything other than windows.. guidence in to how to check it n the bios would be greatly appreciated.. Chuck!!!
No AC97 in the BIOS???
May not mention sound related to the AC97. There also may be another location to enable sound. Both the AC97 and Sound must be enabled in the BIOS.
The ECS site shows no such model number. Google search shows it as an AMD CPU type.
One of us is badly confused.
ok, checked the bios for all the points posted in pevious messages and all are enabled..
Went to the manifacturers website to download the sound drivers but they will not install.. gets to about 20% then it exits with a 6 digit error message. i am totally now out of all resourses on how to get some sound on this machine..
the website i went to was www.ecs.com.tw and searched for k7s5a pro drivers..
There are 3 on there an neither of them will install..
I dont have the manufactuers disk that came with the board as i bought it second hand from an aquatance in the "Pub"..lol
Your first post said 755 NOT 7S5.
So my posts re the 755 can be ignored, obviously.
Sorry, just read the original post.. my board IS ecs k7s5a..
Are certain of the mobo model?
The only such that I find uses an AMD CPU [not Intel P4].
It does use the AC97. The BIOS will normally simply say AC97, nothing about sound.
I found a 755, it is a socket 754
for the AMD 64 bit CPU's. I downloaded the manual and there are clearly entries in the BIOS re the audio [not the word sound].
If this is the mobo that you have I'll give you the exact details.
May be the poster needs to download/run CPUZ
That'll nail down the motherboard mfg., model # and rev #. Looks like there are at least 4 versions of this MB.
K7S5A Pro (5.0)
