hi guys :D 

i bought a Gigabyte x48-DQ6 mobo lately, and everything is working great except one thing: i have no sound :heink: 

my speakers work properly and i have installed the on board sound card driver 2 times (but nothing changed).

what else should i do?! :cry: 

and another thing is, in the ATI catalyst control center, my graphics card is mentioned as " ATI HD 4000 series " , is that normal?? i think, logically, it should be more specific. my card is hd 4870 ...(i just want to know if it is normal)

thank u :)

Check your sound properties and make sure its using the mobo sound and not HDMI sound on the 4870.

Sometimes the ATI driver will change the sound source in the Control Panel.
Change it back to Realtek.

Check device manager for question marks.
Make sure onboard sound is enabled in the bios.

Do you have the front panel audio connector from the case hooked up to the motherboard?
If so disconnect it, and try again.

If it's a new board, definitely rma it. Because even if you do put a sound card in, if something is wrong with the board out of the box, then you may be wondering if it will be stable down the line.
