I recently installed my radeon hd 5570 driver and my previous sound card no longer works after the reboot. That is, when I plug in my headphones to the headphone jack, the headphones are not detected (same for speakers). So I am stuck trying to get sound through the GPU's hdmi port since the headphone jack doesn't detect anything. Exactly what kind of speakers do I need to work with HDMI? I am completely clueless as to what exactly HDMI is.
I tried googling around and they say something about a home theater, which I don't have. I just have a computer and speakers. What should I do to get my sound back?
Thanks in advance!
Change the devices in windows audio to your soundcard.
thanks for replying
how can I get to windows audio? Do you mean device manager? Unfortunately, my audio devices are not even detected.
If I go to control panel>sounds and audio devices, it says "no audio device" with the options greyed out, even though my headphones are plugged in.
