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.

and than downloading the latest drivers for ur mobo sound-card,

whats ur motherboard model? i could 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.

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

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.
