I ordered my computer with no OS because I already have Windows XP Pro. When I installed it in my new computer, I get no sound. I have an Asus A7V600 motherboard with SoundMax Digital Integrated Audio, all the drivers loaded fine according to Device Manager. But when I play something in Windows Media Player, the graph shows something playing but no sound. I've checked all the volumes and nothing is muted, I've checked the BIOS to make sure the sound card is on which it is. I have installed and reinstalled DirectX 9.0b. I've run dxdiag.
SoundMax driver: smwdm.sys (version: 5.12.0001.3620 Eng)
When I run a sound test in Sound1 I get "DirectSound test results: Failure at step 19 (User verification of software): HRESULT = 0x00000000 (error code)
Any help would be appreciated.
