I have an ASRock G31M-GS motherboard which is working fine with a fairly decent overclock on an E6850. My Problem is that i cannot get the sound card working.
I have installed the drivers from both asrock and realtek, but still, nothing. I keep getting a little icon of the speaker symbol with a red cross across it where the volume control should be .
In sound settings under control pannel it can only find one device, the HDMI audio output of the graphics card. i have tried disabling/unstalling this and reinstalling the drivers for the onboard sound but still, nothing.
I am using a usb sound card at the moment which is working ok but is pretty battered and is really bad quality for teamspeak.
Can anyone think of anything that could help? i have trauled google for days and still, nothing.
I uninstalled all the sound drivers and loaded up the cd. When I ran it normally it didn't find any hardware to install drivers for. but, when I loaded in in compatibility mode for vista service pack 2, it found 2 pieces of hardware. the LAN driver, and a inf driver?
I tried going into the disk and installing the audio driver manually, installation went all fine and it rebooted. but when it came back on I still had the same problem. the little speaker icon with a red cross over it.
Thanks for your help but do you have any more ideas?
