Sound isn't working

Recommended Posts

I had this problem with my PC before, the sound would rarely work. The graphics card then died so I sent it off to get repaired and they fixed the sound, but it's not working again now. Essentially, sound isn't even registering on my computer, for instance if I try to play a song on WMP it comes up with an error message. I have a feeling it could be drivers but I can't work out how to fix them as the device manager says all my drivers are up to date. My motherboard is an ASUS M2N68-VM but I don't think it's an integrated sound card, my receipt for the pc says it's 7.1 high definition onboard sound card, which I have a feeling is Realtek? Any help is much appreciated.

Drivers can be found here: http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=M2N68-VM&p=1&s=24

 

How are you outputting the sound? Through speakers plugged into headphone/speaker socket on the motherboard or over HDMI through the graphics card/motherboard?

Why can't the Big Bang be done by the hand of God?

It could have, but it is next to impossible because it also could have been caused by the flying spaghetti monster, or one of the other infinite number of deity possibilities.

Either through the headphone jacks at the front of the tower or through the speakers in the monitor which is a bit more complicated. I have an adaptor that goes from the HDMI port in my computer to the VGA port in my monitor. I did try downloading those drivers you linked to earlier, but I always got an error message saying they couldn't find the audio. My computer isn't picking up my headset at the minute, part of the problem I guess.
