On board audio is not working

MB Name: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.Z68MA-D2H-B3
BIOS version: Z68MA-D2H-B3 F9
CPU Name: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400 CPU @ 3.10GHz
Memory information: Total physical memory 8109 MB
OS information: Windows 7 Enterprise 64 Bit version

I recently tried to use my older LCD monitor on my new gaming computer. When I unplugged the HDMI and plugged in the audio cable in the green audio jack in the back of the motherboard the audio did not work. I have all the drivers updated. I have checked the device manager for the speakers. It only has the HDMI audio in the playback menu of the sound devices.

In the motherboard instructions it says there is suppose to be a HD audio manager, but there is no HD audio manager on the cd or on the website. I downloaded the driver on the website too, but that did not work. It seems like I need a driver for the on board audio. The HDMI audio works fine.

  1. http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Driver/mb_driver_audio_realtek_azalia.exe
    make sure the audio chipset is turned on in the bios.
    on the speaker icon on the lower right click on it and playback devices.
    the speakers should have the green check box next to them
    and you should see realtech audio devices there.
  2. I downloaded that driver already.

    Do you know where it is in the bios?

    There is no speaker at the lower right corner or in the playback devices. That's the issue I am having.
  3. I just checked that the audio chipset is set to auto. Theres 2 options: auto and disable. It is set to auto.
  4. click on that and hit disabled or configure. unless that turned off the realteck sound management wont work.
  5. click on what? The hdmi audio? This pic is from when I hooked it back up to my hdtv.

    What was your resolution to this issue? I"m experiencing the exact same problem down to the hdmi showing up in the playback devices but not speakers.
