    Asus M4A88T-M sound issue .


    hi, i've just installed Win 8 .
    when it finished , i had sound , but only from 1 speaker ( i have 5.1 )
    i was trying to install M4A88T-M audio drivers , but it says that no HD AUDIO found , and then i tried to install AC-97 drivers , but there's no drivers for win 8 .
    is my motherboard that old ? is there any solution ?

    The VIA audio drivers can be downloaded from ASUS HERE

    The AC97 drivers are old and not HD audio drivers.

    Check the BIOS. If may have been disabled.

    The jacks are the same, some auto sensing is not available in AC97. Considering how new the motherboard is, I would avoid using the AC97 (considering it was developed back in the Win 98 era).

    I didn't see any motherboard chipset drivers, but that is the next issue. Many motherboards have chipset drivers and one of the prime things they do is define (identify) all the devices on the motherboard. If a device is not identified, drivers would not find it.
