I see no mention of anything to do with pins that is related to
sound. In fact my mobo manual has very little to say about sound
One section titled Multi-audio feature covers sound related stuff. It
assumes I have SoundMax installed.
To quote the introduction of that section:
Multi Audio Feature
The ADI AD19 SoundMax AC'97 audio Codec provides 6 channel audio
capability. Install the SoundMax Audio Driver and Application from
the support CD that came with your motherboard package to active 6
channel audio feature.

I'm not sure how to get this information other than the products write
up provided by Asus:

Which says very little about sound. The actual specs just reiterates
the products info:

`Audio: ADI AD1980, 6-channel CODEC S/PDIF out interface'
In my manual their is an actual picture of the support cd being run.
It has menu where SoundMax is one of drivers a user can choose.
I'm thinking that the outfit that built my computer never installed it
because I had specified and Audigy2 Sound card.
It seems then that the driver packages you and Michael have posted are
expecting that initial install driver to be there and it isn't.
Does that sound plausable? If so where would one get the original cd
I've written to Asus of coures but do not expect to get much from them
if the reply at all. >> Stay informed about: Using Asus K8V SE deluxe onboard sound
