I have a gigabyte ga-z77x-ud3h mobo and have installed the VIA driver that came with it. This is a new build and the sound out of the mobo jacks worked for about 3 days. Now I can't get any sounds. I haven't made any changes to any settings in the past 3 days that I can remember.
Here's what I've done:
Device manager shows no errors
Verified I have installed the correct driver
Verified speakers work with laptop
Verified not muted and VIA high def audio is selected in sound mixer
Verified on board audio enabled in bios
I have a usb mic/headset combo that gives me sound but the jacks on the back of the mobo don't give me any sound.
Front audio mic/headset jack do not produce sound. Nor does the back panel line out.
I have a USB headset/mic combo that does get sound, but that has nothing to do with the on board sound drivers, it has its own. I get no sound from speakers connected to mobo when this headset is plugged in/unplugged
I post here because I'm experiencing the exactly same problem with this motherboard (except that I did something since yesterday : I installed catalyst 13.1, and some mobo drivers from the gigabyte website)
I am wondering if the graphics card could be the cause of this problem ? I use catalyst 13.1, and there is a sound management system in it. But, I already tried to set the catalyst sound parameters, without success.
As you said BeryLee, there is an hd audio panel pop up when i insert my headphone in one of my audio device (front and mobo).
