So, I've just installed a GTX 780 into my system and right after that, the audio output stops working. Thinking it was a Razer Surround Issue, I uninstalled Razer Surround and reinstalled the Realtek drivers. After that, I was able to hear sound from the front panel output again, but only CERTAIN sounds. Like, when I play a song, I can only hear vocals or well, something like that, it varies. In games I also do not hear all sounds.
