    At the suggestion of a coworker, and to test something else for him (he wanted to try this board w/ Windows running MAME to see how it would perform in an Arcade cabinet), I threw XP SP2 on it. Unfortunately this did not fix my sound issue.

    Tried Mepis, and sound didn't work either.

    I'm assuming sound is broken on this board.....but on the bright side the other two issues have been fixed.

    After resetting the CMOS settings to factory default (thought I tried this, but maybe I did something wrong), I was able to flash the BIOS to the latest revision.

    Also after installing Ubuntu, and using grub as my boot loaded, I've had no problems booting without IDE devices.

    Don't think I'm going to bother RMAing the board just for sound...I plugged in an old Audigy I had and have had no problems with it so far.

    Thanks for the help guys!

    Well, sucks that the on-board sound is busted but glad you were able to get the rest working and can get it working to meet your needs.

    it's a realtek audio extra app, and it causes a load of problems on this board (and others) and doesn't do much good anyway.
    You will loose the red speaker next to the watch but all problems will (hopefully) disappear and you will have audio.

    I had onboard sound problems with my D945GCLF board (I know different board), and it ended up being my version of windows. I have a few different legit versions of XP, and some have been Nlite'd to slipstream drivers/SPs and what-not. I guess one of the versions I had was missing a set of drivers or something because no matter what I could not get the AC97 onboard sound to work with just that one copy of xp. As soon as I changed versions, I had no prob. (all were SP3 btw)

    I have the same problem about tv-out.
    I tried normal 4-pin rca adapter classic. Black screen.
    I connected tv with 4-pin cable pure and the image was black and white. At pc on i changed 4-pin original cable with 4-pin rca and the immage appear on tv with the color!

    When I reboot with the adaptor connected I have the black screen.

    Finally, someone write use 4-pin connector (for me give black screen) someone modificated with a resistance, someone with the 7-pin rca adapter.

    What is ocrrect?

    sigh..
    25 mins on the phone to intel, struggling to understand the nice ladys thick accent and they cant grasp that i only want the cpu fan replaced. they want to send out a new board.

    they DO know about this being a common problem, but i guess if you make it enough of a hassle for users they will just replace the fan themselves.

    just put a SilenX fan in there instead, problem solved, took more time to unscrew the case than change the fan itself..

    I attempted to run the tv-out through a distro amp and got a black screen, it turned out that throgh the distro amp, the computer couldn't detect the extra monitor. When i disconnected the distro box and hooked-up the monitor directly (which had been working fine before) i still got a black screen; baffled me for a while untill i went back into the video settings and enabled the tv-out option. The moral of the story is while you are testing, always make sure the tv-out is enable.

    When fiddeling with TV-out in the past I have always used VLC from another pc to have access to the pc with TV-out, no matter what resolution and output it uses.

    well according to intel.. the fan noise problem, is not JUST the fan but apparently components on the motherboard itself,
    they will do a full board replacement if you phone them up and log the fan fault.

    I will have to try this. I too am having a problem with no sound on the D945GCLF2. I haven't tried the svideo yet.. I hope that works. I guess that's what I get for buying a open box and not testing it out right away.

    On a side note. Is a open box item covered under the manufacturers warranty?
