Windows 7: Realtek onboard sound. No sound

Realtek onboard sound. No sound

I don't know how to title this too well but yeah.
I have been using a USB headset for quite some time but I recently purchased some Audio Technica ADH-700's. I've plugged them in and woolah!..
Just kidding.. No sound at all

I have an Avermedia Live Gamer HD Capture Card and with getting it to work with a usb headset there was a few things that were required to be done.
as seen in this thread below:
How to: Avermedia Live Gamer HD and streaming BF3 (PC) | Oscar Mike

But now I've got a 3.5mm jack headphones and a 3.5mm Microphone in the mail I don't need the usb way. So I've gone back (Well I hope) to the settings before the thread but nothing happens.
I have tried reinstalling multipul Realtek HD Audio things..

Any help would be much appreciated!

Have you reinstalled the ASUS supplied Realtek driver? In most cases the vendor (in this case motherboard vendor) driver works best. Non Vendor drivers can either not work or not work correctly.

Do you have the Audio Playback set correctly? The "Speakers" (in this case Realtek) should be set as the Default Audio Playback Device in the Sound Panel.

Also while you are in the Sound Panel, go to the Recording section and set the Stereo Mix as the default recording device.

Finally, make sure you have the front panel headphone/mic jack correctly connected to the motherboard front panel audio jack. The "HD Audio" connector from the front panel should be used (some also have an AC97 or only have an AC97 and that should only be used if there is no HD Audio).

Hey, I've tried both the ones from my motherboard vendor and also, My front ports do work because I have used them in the past but I'm trying to run them out of the mobo itself.

I might try and re install the MOBO driver again and see if that helps with anything.

I suspect the Avermedia card is causing the problems. Not sure how that works but that is probably the problem.

Are the speakers (internal sound card), as I've shown, set as default playback device?

Assuming you have the correct drivers installed, the main thing left is the Avermedia. Physically remove that, for testing, and see if you can get the front panel jacks to work. You have to break it down to the least components and start from there. Once you have it working with the basic components you can then add other things, such as the Avermedia.

Hey, Sorry for the late reply I've been away from my computer for a little bit.
I've taken out my Capture Card completely. My internal sound card is set as the default playback device.. Still no Audio. Through the front jack there is a weird sort of high pitch quiet sound going through them. But at the back nothing.

Any Idea what could be the problem?
