Is it built in audio or a sound card? you need the driver for it . Either from the card mfg's site or the motherboard / computer mfg. site

Hi xxxkwizzit and Welcome to Bleeping Computer. :thumbsup:

This is almost certainly a Driver issue. It's fairly common after a reformat.

You should be able to get updated Drivers at your computer manufacturers web site.
A good (free) program that will provide you with alot of useful information about your hardware is Everest.

Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
