So my speakers decided to not work after I unplugged them and then plugged them back in. I have read countless forums and have: updated my graphics driver, checked to make sure it is plugged in correctly, and configured many settings. It is not a problem with the speakers because I have gone and bought new ones that do work with my super old toshiba. This has to be a problem with the P.C. that I cannot figure out. I was using old dell speakers before and am using bose speakers now. My headset will play sound if this helps. I am using an asus p9 x79 motherboard with a geforce 550 ti graphics card... can anyone help?!?!?!?!?

ok, i downloaded the software and ran it, but it ended with no success. I am using a cd that came with my motherboard which seems to be the same version as the one on the website. I am also positive that i am plugging it into the correct plug. I have tried every plug in fact. this all happened when I unplugged my speakers from one usb port and plugged them back into the same one. Since then, i have bought bose speakers which only use the audio cord and not a usb...

my headset is tritons so they only use a usb port. I did try to plug my old speakers into this port, but it did not work. I now have bose speakers which only use a audio cord, unlike my old dell speakers which had a usb plug and audio cord.

Did you try looking on your motherboard manufacturer site for Sound drivers and an updated chipset?

Yeah, my motherboard is 1 update behind... but whenever i try to update it, i either: get a mysterious .cap file or something, cant connect to the download server when i update from the internet, or manually do anything... I feel as if this update is the key to my problem, but I cant seem to figure out how to update it :/

Most updates, especially when they are dealing with something related to a hardware component, will include a change log of some sort to help you determine what exactly has changed and why.

I just looked over the information in regards to changes and didn't notice anything that sticks out at me.

Check to make sure that the audio is enabled in the BIOS (which it usually is by default).

That appears to be the most recent audio update from Asus in regards to your motherboard. You are only using integrated audio correct?

You can download the latest drivers HERE .

UPDATE:

Also do the following:
Go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound and click on Manage Audio Devices and provide us with the different options that are listed there. This will also help us determine what kind of audio driver your computer is using.
