Ok I have the most frustrating issue where my pc has no audio at all.

It happened suddenly and i have tried everything I can think of to fix it and no success so Im going to need you to think outside the box


  • Gone into bios to ensure onboard sound is enabled
  • update drivers multiple times direct from the source
  • all the audio is enabled/volume is up/correct speaker is the default 1/speakers are functioning
  • Ive tried getting an external usb plug n play sound card which hasnt helped
  • I just did a clean OS install to windows 8.1 (from 7 ultimate)
  • Troubleshooted the problem
  • Disabled secondary cards

The weird thing is nothing is muted, the device manager says all of the 3 sound cards (pnp/on-board/graphics card) are functioning properly, the audio mixers levels move as if sound was functioning. Im going to need some pro level bleep because this is beyond me I dont understand what in the world is the issue.


If you can fix this i will name my first born after you and sing tales of your glory


note specs attached

One quick question: how are you connecting your computer monitor, vga,  dvi, hdmi, display port?


I suggest trying a version of linux, something like mint: http://www.linuxmint.com/download.php there is a built in browser, you could go to youtube to test the volume with. If it does not work in linux, it is likely a hardware level issue.


Check for a broken off headphone plug in the headphone jack, I have seen this multiple times.


Sometimes setting a device as a default audio device is not enough, in some cases you actually have to disable the other devices. If you are using the speakers, disable anything to do with hdmi output or possibly HD audio. You may need to restart for the changes to take effect. If you can take a screen shot using the snipping tool in windows of the playback devices it might help me locate an issue. To get to playback devices, right click on the speaker icon in the start menu tray near the clock, click playback devices. In that new window make sure you show disable devices by right clicking in the open white space where devices are listed then click show disabled devices. (put a check near show disabled and disconnected devices). Then take a screen shot of that screen.

from your attached picture, I only see that you have installed your VGA Sound Driver but I can't see that you have installed Sound Card Driver. 10EC is vendor (manufacture) number for Realtek.
could you check Device Manager under sound, video and game controllers tree, do you have any installed Realtek High Definition Audio Driver? if you dont have it than no wonder that you get no sound at all.


:guitar: Take me to a place where time is frozen
You don't have to close your eyes to dream :busy:
You can find escape inside this moment :smash:
And I will follow  :whistle:
