Hey BC. I've got an incredibly annoying problem that i hope you guys can help me with. Back in December of 2010, I got the computer I'm using now as a Christmas present. When I received it everything worked flawlessly. Then, in May 2011, something screwed up the OS and I had to have the HDD wiped and restored by the people who built the machine. From then on, I've had this problem.

I have an NZXT Tempest EVO case, and on the top front panel there are ports for audio out and microphone in. When I first received the machine, they worked. After the fiasco in May, they didn't. I purchased a headset today, and I need these ports to work so that I may use it, but I can't get them to work!

I've tried changing the plug on my MoBo from AC'97 to HD Audio, and I've enabled onboard audio from BIOS. Neither did anything, so I'm at a standstill on this one. Please help me. Thank you.

EDIT: ... I hate the people who built my machine. Turns out they never installed the audio drivers on my machine. Quick insertion of the MoBo driver disc fixed not only this problem, but another problem I've had for the longest time involving a missing Stereo mix option. Sorry to have wasted anyone's time. * embarrassed* :P
