Unhappy ASUS A7N8X-X onboard sound does not work

I have built 2 identical systems and the onboard sound does not work. I chose these MB for several reasons. One being the 6 channel audio for gaming. Neither system's onboard sound will work, only the front sound jack.

The specs report "The A7N8X uses an onboard RealtekĀ® ALC650 audio CODEC that lets you enjoy high-quality 6-channel audio without having to buy advanced sound cards." and "RealtekĀ® ALC650 6CH w/built in HP amplifier." But Windows XP Pro Device Manager detects NVidia (R) nForce (TM) Audio Codec Interface.

I have tried loading the drivers for the ALC650 with no change. I don't understand why the NVidia Codec is being recognized.
