    From what I can tell, it looks like the ASUS supplied sound driver is not installed?? If this is the case, install the ASUS sound driver and see if that fixes it.

    By the way, according to what I see on the ASUS site, this motherboard will support 64 bit OS.

    I don't see any sound drivers on the ASUS site for Vista 32 bit (that is the newest OS they list). If the hardware (sound chip) is compatible Windows would have installed the basic function HD Audio Codec drivers and you would at least have basic PC sound.

    Sadly, it looks like this motherboard may not be Windows 8 compatible, if Windows has not installed any sound driver.
