NO SOUND AFTER INSTALLING VIDEO CARD

Hi, Murcerial:

 

The onboard audio setting is in your advanced menu under device options.

 

There you will find your onboard audio setting disabled. Change it to enabled. Save the setting there by hitting the F10 key and again when you exit.

 

You should have your onboard audio back once you reboot.

NO SOUND AFTER INSTALLING VIDEO CARD

DC7900, Installed new Asus Nvidia V982, with HDMI.

When I installed the on board drivers before the video driver all works fine, after install the asus video driver Version: 267.85 I reboot the system and no audio problems begins.

 

In Bios I saw that the Integrated Audio (Advanced/PCI Devices/HD Audio) goes to Disable!, I changed this to Activate and the problem is solved,

 

Thanks for the ideas 😉

NO SOUND AFTER INSTALLING VIDEO CARD

Systems configuration:

Model:          dc5750 sff

CPU:            AMD Athlon x2 4450B

Memory:      2GB

HDD:           750GB Seagate SATA

O/S:             Windows 7 Home Premium (x86)

 

I wanted to set this up as a home theater pc and added an ASUS EAH5450 Silent video card to increases the video memory to 1GB.  This really kicked my butt until I took the following measures:

 

1.  Do NOT load the ASUS video drivers

     The drivers could not allocate the system resources for the EAH5450 without stepping on other
     system resources.  I spent a week trying to make this work without success.

2.  Do NOT load the Windows Update drivers for either the onboard X-press or EAH5450 video

 

     The Windows Update drivers did not fix the conflict between the two video chipsets.  I was
     stuck in 800x600 land without any good options to get to 1920x1080 (1080P) resolution.

 

3.  DO update your system to the latest BIOS

 

     I know that there is some risk anytime you load a new BIOS on your system, but the HP BIOS

     on these systems has the ability to backup and recover your BIOS, so I went ahead and made

     sure this was not going to be a limitation.

 

4.  DO go out to amd.com and get the latest Catalyst drivers for your video card

 

     The Catalyst 12.2 drivers that I downloaded finally identified the EAH5450 correctly and

     configured it for 1080P on my system.

 

Considerations:

 

I know that these dc5750's were designed for Windows XP and Vista.  I felt like the dual-core Athlon chip at 2.3Ghz would provide more than enough power if match with a decent video card and I was right.  Video and DVD playback on this systems is performing as I expected it, smooth and reliably.  I am using a Visio LED HD TV with a logitech sound system plugged into it and now have the modest home theater that I wanted.  I also added PCIe (1x) Hauppauge video decoder for cable input form my Comcast cable box.  I am also pleased that the 240 Watt power supply in the dc5750 has held up to the addition of the EAH5450 and the Hauppauge cards.

NO SOUND AFTER INSTALLING VIDEO CARD

I am having a similar problem but with added complications. I have a dc5750 small form factor PC running windows XP 32 bit and I am installing an nvidia geforce GT-610 PCI-e 2.0 video card. The problem I'm having is similar to the others where the sound goes out after installing the video card. The added complication is that I cannot get in to the BIOS anymore. The display goes in to power save mode and turns off as if the computer is off until after windows has loaded. The monitor turns on around the time that the desktop comes up. If I remove the video card and connect to the onboard video card it functions normally. I'm not sure how to solve this issue.

 

Thank you for your assistance.

NO SOUND AFTER INSTALLING VIDEO CARD

Hi:

 

My opinion is that the card you installed in your dc5750 is simply not compatible.

 

I wouldn't put a nVidia card in a PC with an AMD-based processor and chipset--that's just me.

 

With the P/S and architecture in your PC, I would opt for the AMD Radeon HD 4350 if you can find one with low profile brackets.

 

You might get by with a HD5450/HD6450, but I am a little bit concerned that those cards are PCIe 2.1, and don't always work 100% of the time with older motherboards.

 

I will say though, that I did install a Radeon HD 6570 PCIe 2.1 card in a dc7600 CMT (365W P/S), which is an older model (but has an Intel chipset and processor) than yours, and it worked just fine.

 

Paul

Sir,

there is nothing to do with AMD processor.

Most problems occured with HP computers. So there must be the problem or defect or

"imcompatibility" (defect) of the HP motherboard.

Computer parts are getting more and more compatible with each other so they will

continue to be on the market, unless you have the ability to "control" other manufacturers.

Otherwise, i would consider as "defect".

This is just my opinion.
