I had sound for like 2 min while using Aim but all the sounds were really distored etc... then it just stoped working... but it did work for like 2 min, so that means i have it set up somewhat correct eh?
A. You have the speaks plugged in the right place.
B. All drivers are installed, and no yellow question marks in device manager.
C. All volume controls are turned up high enough to hear.
D. Mobo is jumpered correctly and AC97 is enabled in bios.
E. You had a momentary bliss of somewhat distorted sound.
Conclusion- Either you accidently fried your speakers, your driver is corrupt, your AC97 is fried on the mobo.
Try another set of speakers. Try a music cd making sure you have that black cable connected properly (while using the alternate speakers). Download the audio driver from the MFG's web page and force an install. Fy forcing I mean when it says "Windows allready has the best driver installed" opt to re-install anyway.
If that don't work, print some select posts from this thread and take them with the mobo back where you bought it and demand another.
I don't personally like MSI and have had severe wierd problems out of the only 2 I ever tried to use. I'm playing the odds and never purchasing another MSI product.
