    My brother bought this board, and the onboard sound does not work. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem or if anyone has any suggestions. (BTW, its not the speakers!) Thanks!

    ECS K7S5A is the problem......

    I had this board before and i had many problems with it.....from BIOS, BSOD's, onboard NETWORK card, service, etc..... you name the problem, my ECS K7S5A had it :mad: , i finally realized what the problem was my MOBO!!! so i trashed it the last time it went down and got myself an MSI KT3 ULTRA, best mobo i have purchased yet!!! and only like $50 more than the ECS and its wayyyyyyy better, not one problem with it, the way it should be :D , but i guess if your stuck with it, try re-formatting and installing the new drivers off the website..... g'luck

    I don't know,I have the same board,never had a single problem with it. Don't take this the wrong way,but if you haven't already,Enable it in the BIOS.

    yeah.. there should be an option for you to enable on-board sound. after that reinstall your driver.. if it wasn't installed properly.. then restart your computer... you will be fine,.

    Other than what paul just said,can't think of anything else. Unless it's a resource issue,but highly doubtful.
