I am having some issues with my computer regarding sound. I don't have any of it!
My computer was recently RMA'd due to a faulty PSU and video card. I just received it back and the speakers that I used before no longer work. I figured it was a driver issue and simply downloaded the RealTek drivers but it didn't fix the problem.
The AMD card comes with its own drivers. I had problems in the past with their HD audio codecs and tried uninstalling them but that didn't seem to fix it either.
I went into device manager and located that there were drivers installed and they checked out.
I checked for hidden or disabled devices in "Playback devices" and didn't find any.
Things I've tried:
Installing audio drivers.
Uninstalling and reinstalling audio drivers.
Checking proper connection of speakers.
Verification that speakers work.
By just looking at the audio mixer, it would appear that the system is playing sounds because there is activity in the mixer when a song or other sounds are playing. The problem is there is nothing coming from the speakers.
Is it possible that my audio ports on the motherboard could be faulty? I think I've run through all the options as thoroughly as possible but if there is anything I missed or something else you could suggest I will gladly give it a shot.
Thanks for your time and input.
