Hey guys


today I opened up my computer to clean out my graphics cards (Nvidia gtx570's [2] ) after I installed the latest drivers and when I switched on my computer I had no sound coming out. Here's what I know so far;


- The sound is not muted

- The device manager says everything is working in the sound region

- I have uninstalled my sound drivers and graphic card drivers and reinstalled both, still nothing

- I have done my best effort to figure out if missing codecs are the problem, but keep in mind I am new to the whole audio codec business so this may be effecting something?

- I have checked the BIOS and reset everything to default

- I have tried using headphones and other speakers, still nothing

- When I play music the volume control shows activity


It seems as if everything is in working order except.. I still can't hear anything


I have no idea when it comes to sound cards and what not, could I have knocked a sound cable or something while removing my graphic cards?


Any help is GREATLY appreciated as I have spent my whole day today trying to fix this problem and tracking down forums for help but everything has proved unhelpful.


Thankyou :)

Well i would double check on all the cords to your speakers and make sure they are all in properly. if they are then i would try testing a headphone jack and see if you can hear sound that way.

Try re seating the cards, maybe try one at a time.  A little dirt in one of the slots may cause it.
