Ensure that BIOS has not disabled the onboard audio chipset. If it's
enabled but it does not get recognized, maybe you can enforce a mode
different than "Auto" :-?
Also, recheck if the PCI slot used for the AWE64 is not shared nor tagged
as "special" to avoid any conflict, motherboards makers specify this in
the board's manual.
