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.
