    Flash update the BIOS only if it fixes an issue. If you're having problems with the onboard sound, you most likely have to enable it in the BIOS settings and install the drivers. You might not have to flash the BIOS at all.

      ok well this is the problem im having.. in 2142 and bf2 the mic gain is extremely low and theres no mic boost option(its grayed out)

      even in the sound options in the computer settings the mic increase and decrease bar is grayed out. otherwise theres no way i can find to increase the volume of the mic.

      its onboard sound and realtek is the maker.... ts works fine but the ingame voip is well screwed..... havent realy tried to use it ingame yet but i can barely get it to work in the game settup section....



      any ideas m8's???

        Sarc's on the money...if it's working with no issues don't need to fix it. Realtek as a driver to update that is independent of the motherboard bios.

        I've been building my own rigs for about 4 1/2 years and I've not flashed to a new bios once since I've been doing it...guess I've been lucky...or not...I did lots of research on component compatibility during pre build prep.

            I update to the new BIOS all the time, in fact I flashed my BIOS to the newest version today.


            Note: I don't have the motherboard in question

              I flash to current every few months, when I remember to check for updates that is.

                  Asus has a flash utility that does everything automatically from within Windows. I have used it several times and it is pretty "dummy proof". You literally just dowload the file and the program does the rest. It is located on your CDRom that came from Asus, but like Grunt said, not too many times when a BOIS flash is really needed.

                  As for the Realtek drivers causing problems, I have never had any issues, even with Vista. They perform well, enough to not justify buying an expensive sound card. The easiest fix for Mic problems is to use a USB headset, you can never go wrong and the quality on the cheapest models is normally higher than most stereo type input models.

                    but the problem is there is NO mic adjustment,, none ziltch, nada.

                    ive checked everything and have gone through all the setting and there is no way to turn the MIC volume control on and no MIC boost section...otherwise im stuck with the reg mic settings.. when using TS its fine,, but ingame voip in BF2 or 2142 its hard for anyone to hear me, i have to YELL into my headset, lol

                      Have you considered a sound card? I would recommend an audigy 2 at minimum or x-fi preferred, but if cost is an issue you can get sound cards for under 8 bucks.
                      Flashing bios may or may not fix the prob, but onboard sound sounds like a service announcement on the overhead, inside of a NYC subway.

                        I don't know what you consider to be an "expensive" sound card, but onboard sound does not in any way compare to a decent sound card. I use a Plantronics DSP500 USB headset and I love it, but it's nowhere near the quality of my Audigy2.

                            Cing, that hurts.. Right here!! :row__523:

                            On board audio is never as good, but a USB headset and a decent headset works good (for me at least). I have the same headset in the DSP-500 and I am able to adjust my audio settings 3 ways in game, with the normal in game adjustments (least preferred), volume control on the headset itself, and lastly my G15 keyboard. All 3 give me adjustments that work fine. But that all being said, BF2 is not a game I have ever tested it out on, I have another dozen that it works on though.

                              <3 the fact that dell releases new bios updates every time the temperature in Hell drops 50 degrees, read: never.
