  1. try enabling it in the BIOS ( the on board sound ).................... or did you by any chance neglect to install the drivers that would have been on the disc that came with the motherboard?
  2. how do i get to the onboard bios and what do i enable?
  3. Hi nathwillo1

    have you installed the audio drivers for your motherboard ?
  4. if you can tell me your motherboard and what version of windows you are running and if it is 32/64bit
    i will give you a link to your motherboards audio drivers

    my machine I have to hit the delete key on start up.......... tap/tap/tap/tap/tap/tap............ etc. until you get to the BIOS screen.

    you should read the motherboard booklet or the pdf from the board manufacturers site....... lots of stuff in that little thing.
  6. asus crosshair v formula z and i am on windows 8.1 64bit
  7. go here, select your OS and download and install your audio driver , let me know if it works
