I just finished building my pc today. My motherboard is a ASUS M4A88T-V EVO/USB3
I'm currently experiencing difficulty getting the sound to work. I have all my drivers installed, and I'm able to select my audio device, but no sound can be heard no matter what I plug into the audio jacks. Whenever I play videos on websites such as YouTube, my computer shows that sound is being produced, but I do not hear it. Whenever I change the balance with my headset plugged in, I can hear the small static in my headset changing from ear to ear, so I know the jacks are at least doing something. There is also sometimes a high pitched squeal noise from whatever is plugged in.
My setup is
Asus HD 6850
Phenom II 965 x4 CPU
Raidmax 730w power supply
I'm just wanting to use the on board sound card. Everything else in my computer is working great!
I ended up purchasing a sound card from Office Depot for twenty bucks. It's working flawlessly. I'm not sure why the on board sound won't work, but as of now, I don't care. If I ever do find out why, I'll edit this thread for anyone who comes across this.
