Abit NF7-M Sound Problem
Alright, this is the first system I've built from scratch...and I can't get the onboard sound to work! One of the main reasons I got this motherboard was the combination onboard audio and video. I'm at college so I've had NUMEROUS people play around with drivers, etc. to get it to work, and still nothing, here's my setup...
Abit NF7-M motherboard
Athlon XP 2500+ Barton
Maxtor 120 GB HDD
Crucial 512MB PC2700
Logitech Z-640 5.1 Speakers
Windows XP Pro
I'm not hooked up to the campus network yet, so I haven't installed theu pdated bios yet...but would that cause the sound not to work?
I tried regular desktop speakers also, which didn't work, so I know its not the speakers. Onscreen the sound plays, and all the drivers seem to be installed correctly, and digitally signed, etc.
I had the front case line-in, line-out, and mics connected and tried plugging my speakers into them to test, and it works! So I figured maybe since I had them connected it was misdirecting all my sound to those ports. Unplugged all those connections and still nothing out the back!
Gr, I'm so frustrated, I need my music (not being wired to the internet yet isn't helping)!! I'm about to resort to my iMac :-o !
Anything ideas, suggestions, fixes? I've searched everywhere and can't find a thing about this....should I just scratch everything and try to start over? I've got basically nothing on the hard drive yet...
