OK, there are 4 models based on MS-6380E. Does yours have the AC97 on board sound? Is it red or green? (I'm serious)

OK, looks like the ULTRA only came in raid or non raid, neither of which had the AC97 on board.

Just in case they used a common bios on all 4 similar models, make sure there isn't a spot in the bios for enabling the on board sound. If there is, dis- able it if using a card.

Lets start there- we will get you through this and you will be answering questions soon!

the board itself is Red and yes there is a feature to Disable the AC97 in the BIOS but... lol its enabled and yet my speakers are plugged into the jacks that are on the system board itself. so if it doesnt have some type of onboard sound card imgonna go back to compUSA and knock the guy out who told me yea this board is the same as yer old one (wish yes had an onboard sound card) ... any thing else u need to know?

why would they leave that in the BIOS if theres no onboard sound card im so pissed i was so happy for like 5 seconds when my comp booted then after the fact that i found out there was no sound i almost cried...

Uhhh. if there is plugs for it, it does have on board sound! Enable it, re boot, and load the VIA 4 in 1 patch from the CD that came with the board. After that re-boot and it will see the on board sound.

It's funny though that I can't find an ultra listed with sound. (?) :confused:

mabey this has somethign to do with it

i dotn understand it really well

Front Panel Audio Connector: JAUD1

The JAUD1 front panel audio connector allows you to connect to the front panel audio and is compliant with Intel Front Panel I/O Connectivity Design Guide

(shows where jumpers are)

(Pin Definitions)

then this:

STOP

Note: If you dont want to connect to the front audio header, pins 5&6, 9&10 have to be jumpered in order to have signal output directed to the rear audio ports. Otherwise, the Line-Out connector on the back panel will not function.

whatever the hell that means...

Is there a little yellow speaker in the system tray.

If not you need to install the driver for the sound device off of the disk that came with your motherboard.
