    I just put together a new computer and it works fine and everything except for the audio.

    Windows XP pro. I havent updated windows yet as i have not connected the computer to the internet yet. Thinking this could be one of the problems.

    I use an Asus A8N-E motherboard with a built in realtek sound card.
    First i installed the drivers that were supplied with the mobo.
    plugged in my headphones into the line out.
    no audio.
    I then dl the drivers on my other computer and then installed the up to date drivers and then tried plugging in my headphones into the same light green line out port on the back.
    No audio.
    Tried some speakers to, but no audio.
    I checked out the software that comes with the drivers to see what could be done from there. The program has this thing where it tries to detect new speakers and headphones. The program could not tell if anything was plugged in. It kept on saying that it could not detect and to check to make sure everything was connected properly.

    heh, Mute is off and the volume is turned up if ur wondering about that.

    thanx in advance for the help. :)

    You made sure you installed the audio or 4in1 drivers?

    Go to the control panel/audio options/ hardware, find the soundcard in the list. Make sure it is enabled here as well.
    While in the options what speakers does it say you are running? Desktop, laptop, keyboard speakers, one of these need to be on.

    Everything having to do with sound on the list says its running properly.
    Also check in the properties to see if it was enabled, and it was.
    Set on desktop speakers.
    no sound.

    Does the sound card appear in device manager?

    Per chance, does the motherboard have a jumper pin that disables onboard sound?
