Just finished building a gaming PC, installing driver CDs and then updating for latest drivers. For some reason, I can't get any sound to play, whether through speakers or headphones. My monitor doesn't have speakers built into it. The onboard sound is run through Realtek HD Audio Manager, which responds slowly and crashes frequently. I'm running Windows 10 Ent x64.
MSI M5 mobo
Intel i5 7600K
MSI GTX 1060 6GB
-deleting and reinstalling drivers, from both disk and Realtek.
-set sound to not go through HDMI connected to the graphics card.
-plugged speakers and headphones into every available sound port, including the mic for shts and giggles.
-restarting/shutting down (duh)
-used CCleaner to clean registry, in case of any stray keys while deleting/installing drivers.
Any help you guys can give would be appreciated. I'm kinda lost with this issue, which is particularly embarrassing since I'm in school now to become a tech.
