I'm seeking some help as I feel I have hit a brick wall here.

I replaced my E8400 stock fan for a Cooler Master N520 and in doing so, I had to pull out everything in order take out the motherboard so I could install that fan.

Long story short, now that all has been installed, I lost the sound on my computer. I'm pretty noobish when it comes to this but I can say that my internal speaker works, which is the one that issues a bip bip when I turn the computer on.

Otherwise I installed the audio drivers for my motherboard which is the ASUS P5K/EPU and I doubled-check everything being connected to my motherboard and I'm pretty sure I haven't forgotten any wire to plug in.

That and my speaker is powered on (never know).

I've ran out of ideas, anyone can help?

When this has happened to me, it's usually because I plugged the speaker wire into the blue socket and not the turquoise one. Easy to do when you peering round the back in the dark.

Turns out a third look into the eye of the Beholder revealed an unplugged HD Audio wire...
