  1. I have lost my sound on my computer recently and just decided to uninstall and reinstall realtek. But after that, still no sound and my goddamn computer thinks my dvd drive, is my sound card. It is my main audio device. So I would really appreciate any advice given. Thanks guys.

    Just to clear something up is this the same PC in your profile? If so, what did you do with the sound card listed? If that card failed and you are reinstalling the onboard sound, did you enable it in the BIOS? BTW, this probably should have been in the Audio and Video forum.

    Well I already posted in audio and video but to me this seemed hardware related... But no big deal... No it is a little different. This is my friends pc that i am having this problem on. It is onboard sound so I just reinstalled the mobo software on the mobo software disk... It was enabled in BIOS yes.

    Got fed up and reformatted. Thanks anyways.
