Well i downloaded/installed Service Pack 3, re botted and it said it detected a high quality audio bus or something like that which i assumed was from the graphics card. But i was unable to instal it cause the prompt asked for a CD or a floppy to use the files from.
I already have the realtek drivers installed, it even shows in device manager but there is still no sound. I have my headphones connected in the front panel like i always have. Its just really weird cause like i said i have done this a bunch of times before with no problems.
The only difference if the graphics card, do i need a audio driver for it or something?
No, not yet, some are still downloading. Will these updates really fix the sound?
After the SP3 install, the prompt was for Nvidia. The prompt that came up was Nvidia High Definition Audio, it created 4 things in my device manager, realtek is also shown as well. Its also enabled in bios.
When i reformatted this computer all i did before installing the card was set up the internet, then i tried to install the driver for the sound after i got the GT 240 to work. Do you think maybe i should of installed everything on the computer before the card? Its almost like since there wasn't any sound the card just took over or something.
At any rate, thanks for the replies brett, it really helps.
I reformatted again, and before installing the graphics card i did everything else and STILL no sound. It shows in device manager as working, but it isnt. This is the first time i have ever had my sound not work after a reformat.
I got the right drivers, and nothing. I have no clue what is causeing this. The front and back panels just wont work. Everything is plugged in just fine inside the computer. I cant get a sound card because this computer only has one PCI slot which will be for my graphics card..
Am i completly screwed or what?
(i downloaded all the SP3 updated before the second reformat and the sound still didnt work..)
