I turned my computer on earlier to see a small red x on the audio icon. I checked my Playback devices and device manager and there were no playback devices [] (when there are normally 3 or 4) apart from AMD HDMI Output. I am fairly sure that that is not the cause of the problems as i have searched the internet all over for a solution and it does not seem linked. I do not have a sound card, it is integrated sound. I have no idea why this is happening as i havent purposefully unplugged anything from my motherboard recently but i have opened the computer due to suspected problems with my cpu.

Any help would be massively appreciated if you have any.

Probably the audio sensing isn't working. Unplug the audio jack and plug it back in.
download the latest audio driver will help with this problem too.

Bump. I too am having the same issue after opening my case. Although I touched everything. Recently did a full windows reinstall. also replaced HDD, SATA cables, Graphics Card, RAM and my PCI wireless card trying to solve a different issue. I too have AMD HDMI output but that's done with the grapics card right. Does this mean our MOBO has a bad connection somewhere or could it be Drivers?
