My audio does not seem to want to work

Hey community,

I recently built a computer out of spare parts and treated myself to a new case (I used my old one in the spare parts comupter). Everything runs fine in both computers, they boot into Windows and such. Fully functional besides this little thing in my main rig.

For some reason, the audio just does not want to work. It does not pick up any audio that I might have plugged in (my speakers). There are only 5 options for sound and the AMD HDMI output. None of them work.

Any insight will be very helpful
