you check whichever audio was installed:
click start, control panel, add remove programs, look at the list...
which audio software is shown on the list? delete it, restart the computer.
now visit the motherboard manufacturer or computer manufacturer's website
download the latest audio drivers, save on the desktop...
turn the antivirus off,
if you have multiple security programs installed, turn them all off
(your driver may not install if security systems are turned on)
now load your new audio driver, restart, turn the antivirus back on.
worked perfectly doing exactly what you said. Thanks!!
the new Gtx 580 drivers must of uninstalled the RealTek drivers or something.. never happened before we'll see with the next line of drivers coming out soon. If it happens again ill know what to do. =)
