I recently went into my computer to install a Corsair H80 Water pump for the GPU. Anyhow, after i connected all the cables and turned on the computer again i did not have any sound. Even though im not an expert with computers, i'm pretty sure all the cables are connected right (but there is always a possibility i screwed up there).
I do have sound devices, that is not the issue. After the first pc boot i had the Realtek digital output (realtek high definition audio) as the sound device. I went into the control panel and pressed sound. The previous audio device (that i had and was working) was there, but stated as "Not plugged in".
So, my computer does not detect or react as i connect any headsets nor speakers. I also checked the audio in the mixer to see that it "plays sound" which i can confirm.
I have searched the web for people with the same issues and tried a few "solutions" but none of them worked for me.
1. Uninstall and reinstalling the drivers
2. Making sure i got the latest versions of the drivers
3. Turning on the front jack panel in the Realtek HD Audio Manager, which resulted with the speakers apparing to be connected and works according to the computer but still no sound.
4. Tried different speakers and headphones.
So my question is, do you guys have any idea what to do? I have been sitting on this problem for quite a while now.
After trying several things im starting to believe it might be me who failed at connecting the computer. But if so i have no idea how to fix it, as it does not matter if i connect the audio cable instead of the HD audio cable or if i leave them unconnected.
Anyhow: My os is Windows 7 Ultimate
I got an Intel motherbord DX58SO
and my sound device/card is Realtek high definition audio? :S
Good luck solving this puzzle because it's sure giving me an headache.
Reply if you got any information or need some more information from me?
(I also recently deleted my hard drive and reinstalled windows, if that matters)
