    Hello All

    I have just built a new PC based on the GA-K8NXP-9 motherboard - everything
    was working a treat.

    All of a sudden the sound does not appear to work at all. When I try to use
    the volume control on WinXP it says:-

    There are no active mixer devices available. To install mixer devices, go to
    Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Add

    Any ideas what I should be looking for?

    Any advice much appreciated.

    Hello All

    I have cracked this one myself!

    I installed the latest F5 BIOS and it reset the AC97 AUDIO to DISABLED.
    Sorry for being so slow but this may affect other users.

    I would also like to mention that Nvidia's iTune software now works.
    AlsoGigabyte's EasyTune now has the Smart Fan button highlighted.

    Hope this info helps.
