Sound Effects tab not showing up in Realtek HD audio

As the title suggests, the sound effects aren't showing up in my Realtek HD audio manager. This is what it looks like:

And on the microphone tab:


I don't know where the sound effects tab went, its so weird. On my friend's computer, he has every tab. I have tried other solutions but nothing seems to help.

    I have tried uninstalling, sweeping (btw i used the program you suggested), and then reinstalling. It dosent help at all. I got the motherboard from an hp XW4300 workstation.I tried the HP drivers, just a very old version of the realtek drivers, nothing seems to be helping. I had a sound blaster but then it died and i even sweeped those drivers.
  3. do u have a budget for a new cheap addin soundcard? and do u have pci express1x or free pci slot thanks.

    Well, this computer only has to last for 3-4 more weeks so i don't feel like getting a sound card. Yes, i can afford one
  5. whats ur budget?

    I guess that works, but i was really hopeing to save the money for a new video card for my new pc. And i still havent found out the solution to my realtek
  8. well i dunno, ive recommanded all what id do, so im puzzled.

    41$ would get u a decent card for the moment.

    Which realtek do you have in that? Odds are, considering its a serverbd, that you don't have one that supports 'effects'; servers don't need them.

    Well that might be the problem because the board is a workstation board. It's an ALC260 if that helps. That might be my problem.
