Have you tried reinstalling the audio drivers? Also, is this an onboard sound card? If it is, have you made sure that it is still enabled in the BIOS? If you are using another type of sound card, did you make sure your onboard sound was disabled?
Yes it is the onbard sound card. the BIOS is all correct. I did think this too, but am now stuck once checked the BIOS and the drivers and compatability.
I have now reinstalled the drivers and had to connect headphones to the back I/O slot for them. and it seems to work but if i turn my computer off at the mains and then turn it on then the sound drivers have failed and i have to reinstall them at least twice berfore they work, with headphones or speakers plgged in.
For me this is a problem because it is a gaming computer and i move it around abit going to LAN's and mates homes and i don't always have speakers or headphones with me. So the whole tower is useless if it goes anywhere.
Thanks for your help though.
