Audio Problem on new build

With my new M5A88-VEVO board build I have gotten everything working great except for sound. I've troubleshot till my hands bled and to no avail. The on board card is a ALC892 realtek card. I've installed the drivers for it that came with the board, nothing. I uninstalled that and installed the drivers from the site, nothing. Here's the weird part, I even put in a soundcard that I KNOW is good and downloaded the drivers for that, no sound.

Please help, I've literally tried everything before coming here.

Edit: It also recognizes when I plug in the speakers (as an audio device) and it looks like sound is playing in the volume mixer, except there is no sound... the speakers in question worked great on my other computer.

  1. are you plugging into the front jack or the back jack? Is it green?

    Also, if you go to the Sound Control panel, are you seeing "Speakers" as a device, with a green check mark next to it?
  2. If your GPU card has HDMI capability then it is likely that Win 7 has put your GPU sound chip as the default sound device. Go to Control Panel / Sound. Check to see what the default device is. Make sure it is your onboard Realtek.
  3. I'm plugging it into the back jack, the green one yeah. Default under playback is "Speakers - Realtek High Definition Audio" and "Realtek Digital Output - Realtek High Definition Audio"
  4. Speakers have a check next to them yep
  5. Double click the speakers from the Sound control panel, and verify this:
    On Levels Tab, make sure there are no red circles with lines (turned off symbol) next to any of the items in the list. Make all volumes 100%
    On the Ehancements tab, click the box that says Disable all Sound effects, an click the box that says Immediate mode.
    On the Advanced tab, make sure both Exlusive boxes are checked. Also, try setting the quality to 16 bit 48 khz.

    Also if you have headphones, try them in the same jack just for verification.
  6. Okay, I did all of those things. Sound is still not working. I tried the headphones as well, no dice.
  7. Also, it recognizes sound from my microphone and also shows sound in volume mixer... just wont produce any
  8. From the sound control panel, click on the COmmunications tab. Then check the box next to Do Nothing.
  9. I had already done that, still nothing
  10. Should I remove my graphics card and see if the sound works?
  11. I would try removing all audio devices that arent the mobo. So, the video card and the mic, and any USB ish you got plugged in.
  12. give me a sec to remove the video card
  13. I removed the video card... my speakers seem to be producing some staticy sounds but it's still not working
  14. ugh nothing is working THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING
  15. well, I originally responded to this thread because my mobo did the exact same thing. Every single thing I could think of short of reinstalling windows was done. I just bought a new soundcard to solve my problem, but you tried that and it didn't work. I am not sure else what to suggest, I'm stumped.
