  1. I have only just bought this computer, iut had viista premium 64 bit
    preinstalled and has an on board high definition sound card. (ADI AD1986A
    High Difinition Audio). I checked and it says the drivers are upto date and
    that there are no problems with the sound card. The computer isnt even
    recognising the fact that i have plugged my headset in and NO SOUND

    Somebody help for a change.

    Right click on the speaker icon in the Notification Area of the Taskbar, select
    Playback Devices, make make sure your Speakers are set as default and go through
    the other Properties and Configurations are setup.

    As to the headphones, is there an icon for your sound device in the Notification
    Area, or an audio control panel somewhere in your All Programs? There may be
    headphone options there.

  5. Ok, it is not recognising any speakers or headsets that i plug in (i have
    tried all the holes to make sure) and it still says the device is working
    fine and is creating sound. It is not muted and i have a m2n-mx motherboard
    if that helps?
    so overall
    Brand new Vista 64 bit with a M2n-Mx motherboard using the intergrated cound
    No sound generating.
    Supposedly upto date drivers.
    When i tried to play a song with windows media player it said something
    about drivers but i clicked x and now i cant remember :(

    PLease somebody help me.

    And also thanks for the replies

    I'm astounded at how many reply to these things but don't actually provide
    any usueful help!

    Anway, I have the same issue and a workaround is to right-click the speaker
    icon on the bottom right, select playback devices and set the headset as the
    default. it then seems to work.

    It's still a bit sticky though e.g. if you pull the headset out whilst
    playing a movie you have to restart the application for it to play back
    through the headset again.
