see any yellow ! marks?
Well No caution signs or yellow marks in device manager, just under sound is Realtek HD audio and the device manager says all is working ok with it. Loaded the drivers that came with the motherboard, in fact I have ran that disk a few times, the funny thing is that the computer doesnt recognize that the speakers are plugged in. They are plugged in to the green speaker jack on the back of the desktop. All I hear from the speakers is static and switching noise.
