HD Audio or AC97 connector – Which to use when, and what’s the difference? – Super User

Red X on connection and no sound

Cons nothing i can think off Summary gigabyte should have added this to their website even for an old os Reply to this review Was this review helpful? The matching connector on your case should be labelled accordingly, I know mine is labelled HD Audio.


In my case the sound chip is a ALC but i’m more interested in a generic, all purpose answer, rather than one specific to this.

This ac799 the same code as the Realtek site which is no longer available through them. I have installed all three of my audio drivers and not one is showing in my audio devices.

Pros amazed in first time installation of realtek ac97 driver I am hearing sound in my PC Reviews Current version All versions.
