Hi there, Welcome to Seven Forums.

Sounds like you will need to re-download the driver for the audio card.

Go to the ASUS website here: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download

Choose your product either by name or service tag ID

Then choose you want to download drivers and then choose audio drivers.

Download and run the file and you should be good to go .

Let us know how you get on,
