    Mobo ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe with onboard Realtek Audio.

    Since purchased new the audio never worked.

    I have installed since a few PCI audio cards but did not work either & the last one with its drivers loaded from its small CD gives sound but very weak.

    Has anybody a magic idea of how to get sound on this oldish mobo?

    thanx ........nick

    if you want to use the onboard sound card, go into the BIOS and make sure its enabled, from there go to the asus website and find audio drivers for your mb, download & install.

    Then play a song or cd and have your speakers plugged it & powered on if it does not work then leave the song playing and plug the speakers into the other sound ports at the back of the computer until you hear sound. (its possible you have them plugged into the wrong port on the back)

    You need more than just the audio drivers from Asus, be certain you download and install the chipset driver first.

    If it's XP, try with installing the drivers in this order:
    motherboard drivers, MSUAA and then the audio driver

    XP and Realtek have sometimes some trouble to understand each others :D
