Onboard Sound not working on a ASUS AX7N8X-X motherboard

Hi all
My question is that i recently bought a new motherboard to replaced my old one, after i installed it any everything configure the bios and load into windows there is no sound what so ever. I've checked the bios to make sure its enabled, the sound and multimedia properties to check is my default sound device is set to the onboard one and i install the sound driver that i obtain it from http://www.asus.com.tw/support/download/item.aspx?ModelName=A7N8X-X&Type=Drivers . after i install and tries to play some music, it still doesn't work so is there possible way fro me to get my onboard sound working wivout having to buy a soundcard goes into my PCI Slot.
Oh and also i'm using windows 2000 as my os.
Thanks in advance

madness2k2 ....  what do you mean it's not working?    Do you get an error message or you just don't have volume?   Does Winamp for example look like playing files?   How did you tested when you say it's not working?
   If you correctly installed the drivers then I don't think it's a driver issue. It might even be a failing onboard soundcard , in which case you'll have to have it replaced.

well the thing is that I don't have any errors at all or anything I just get no sound coming out of my speaker and I checked my speaker is plugged in correctly.

check the volume too, you should find some icon in the tray. If still no go, you probably have a dead soundcard.   Then just go to your provider and demand it changed.

madness2k2 ..... sirbounty is talkin' about the VIA all in one driver. He provided you with a link to that driver, however, you should have that on mobo's installation CD too.

it seems i think that the installer for the driver is not installing the audio driver i think becuase i couldn't find the nvidia sandstorm control panel inside control panel
