  1. Ok, so...
    I just bought a new video card, ATI RADEON and I installed it fine and it works fine on my PC, BUT since the moment i restarted my computer after installing it i have not been able to get any sound, I have searched tons of websites for help on what to do and NOTHING has worked, i even had to do PC recovery at a point. Here are the things I've tried:
    - PC Recovery
    - Remove New card and plug monitor into old slot. (screen doesnt even turn on)
    - Reinstall sound driver
    -

    Someone please help me out with it. I dont want to spend any more money and this computer is my baby.

    I'd say it's likely become disabled in system CMOS

    When restarting press the key that says Hit DEL or F2 or whatever! That gets into CMOS (setup)
    Once in CMOS, re-enable onboard Sound
    Save and exit (usually F10 key)

    Restart and confirm you have sound.

    Great news

    Also thankyou Acclamator, usually I'm the one stating that to others.
    But every now and then I forget to check
    Once I helped resolve a matter in Introduce yourself forum !! Thankfully a board moderator moved it for me.
