    This thread is a joke right?

    If not- Google is your friend. Find a review of that mobo on google.. You will find one with pics of the bios screens probably.

    if not-






    look through the BIOS! :wtf:



    Probably under tab= onboard peripheral or some shit like that.

    ok, i checked all the descriptions, and it was simply labeled AC97 >.<....


    isnt it meant to say "audio" or something before AC97?

    yeah that is the sound. Under one of the bottom three things there? They must figure people that are in the BIOS, know what AC97 means.. Reading the manual would have probably said that.. I always read my mobo manuals at least 2 times to make sure I know of any oddities the that particular mobo might have.. For future reference u can probably get the manual at the manufacturer's website if you lost it.
