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. (?)
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)
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.
