  1. Could be.... that of course would be a mainboard defect.

    Of course, the fact that your SBLive card doesn't work either really
    points the finger at your speakers. But you say you've tried other
    speakers with the same results.

    Do your speakers hum when you touch the input plug?

    Yes the speaker hum when I touch the input plug.
    Plus I plug the speakers into other devices and they worked fine.(mp3
    player and cd stand alone player)
    I am strongly leaning towards a MB defect.

  3. I would agree with you, but that still doesn't explain why the SBLive
    card doesn't work.

    This is confusing
    everything worked flawlessly on my old ASUS 850mhz mb
    it was just slow.
    This sound thing is driving me crazy

  5. Here's one final idea.....I'm not a regular XP user so I'm not sure
    exactly where this 'feature' is, but since you mentioned that you
    wondered if your speakers were digital or analog....

    Sometimes the setting for digital output gets changed. Click on the
    volume icon in the taskbar click on the advanced tab and then (if it is
    checked) uncheck the digital output box and see if that helps.

    Could it be an IRQ conflict with the Graphics cards
    Headstomp, May 17, 2005
  7. That would show up in Device Manager.

    I didnt install this:
    IEEE 1394A: IEEE 1394a interface provides high speed digital interface
    for audio / video appliances such as digital television, digital video
    camcorders, storage peripherals & other PC portable devices.

    I do not have any digital devices so I left that and the extra USB
    ports off.
    That shouldnt matter right?

    I just got off the phone with MWAVE's tech support and they said its a
    common problem with this board. He said Shuttle company does not have a
    great quality control system and that I should send in the board for a
    So I guess thats what I am going to do. So I have to wait another week
    or two to find out.
    Oh well thank you for all your help.
    Headstomp, May 17, 2005
  11. Right.
    Travis Jordan, May 17, 2005
  12. OK - just check back in when you get the replacement board and let us
    know if that solves the problem.

    Still doesnt explain why the sblive didnt work
    Now I just have to keep the processor and memory in a secure location
    until I get the board back

    I think it has something to do with the OS
    Im using WINXP OEM version
    Ive updated the service pak to 2
    I put the speakers directly up to the cdrom and it should play a
    regular audio cd out the speakers and it doesnt
    Gotta be the OS now.
    I will have to get my hands on a retail version of Winxp
    Is the linux better than Windoze?

    Okay that guy doesnt know what he is talking about
    Ive installed my old retail ver of win2k and still the same thing
    with the new codec install
    i can play music out of my cd rom though with my speaker connected
    directly to it
    must be a faulty board
    ill try the sblive card and post results

  17. I wouldn't encourage you to jump from Windows to Linux unless you are
    really interested in it. The learning curve can be pretty steep for a

    Finally have sound now but not through the MB
    I shut off the onboard audio and got a different sound card and now i
    have sound
    I have a dual OS boot with WIn2k and WInxp
    It works for both.
    They are sending me another board and once i get that board I will see
    if the onboard audio works. And if it does i will send back the
    defective one.
    The board is a pretty okay board. I just wish I didnt have the
    headaches of this audio port malfunction.

  19. We can safely conclude that it is hardware then. You did a good job of
    diagnosis, even if it was painful!

    Thanks for letting us know, and post a follow up when you replace the
