In device manager dbl click on AC97 or realtek audio then select the drivers tab, click the Update Drivers button. Right click the Microsoft speaker icon in the task bar, select “Playback Devices”. Whichever one you choose is up to you. Likewise, some modern enclosures have both an “AC’97” and an “HDA” plug at the end of the front-panel audio cable. Copyright – , Tech Support Forum.

I would suggest trying the HD audio connector first, if the rear audio output on your motherboard doesn’t work try using the AC97 connector instead.

The specs for this motherboard state it offers H. The correct one to use depends on your case.

It stays on 16 bit, Hz, DVD quality. Similar help and support threads. I have also updated the drivers but it says there are no better drivers etc.

I have XP integrated sound card and the same problem, sound stopped working one day when my computer over heated due to a defective power supply, I put in a new one weaker than the last one.

They also have schemantics on pages 20 and 25 if you care. A minor part of those standards is a front-panel audio connector.

Simple definition between Azalia and AC’97 is the older spec vs the a9c7 spec. I did what you said under the tabs, but when i go to the advanced tab it doesnt let me select anything from the dropdown list.

It is becoz there might be slight EMP burst electro magnetic pulse so anything magnetic means sound related is fried but that doesn’t affect your performance or driver issues. The Azalia spec includes a sensing network that can detect if a plug is inserted in any of up to eight different sockets, and the system would bring up an annoying message asking what you had plugged into a port which was confusing, as it wasn’t necessarily detecting the correct port, as the case was wired for AC Consequently, a loud audio passage may make the HDA motherboard with AC’97 dongle believe that headphones and microphones are being plugged and unplugged hundreds of times per second.


I have had the same thoughts!! HD Audio is generally more capable. AC97 is an older format, how old is your computer?

A little assistance with azalia/ac97 audio please!

I repeat, this is what I understood of my poor investigation from the day I had the same doubt as you, but I can’t promise all it’s true. The bios has a toggle for Azalia. For the marketing term HD audio, see High-resolution audio. Report Respond to aquarelle.
