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?

Some boards if no front panel audio is connected need a jumper to send sound to the back, maybe your front panel audio is not connected correctly!

Was exactly that. Weird, I double-checked but sometimes, you look harder when someone else tells us that should be it.

Thx mate
