  1. Hey guys, I recently build my first desktop, primarily for gaming, having done this, everything is working fine and dandy, but I am getting no audio from my pc, no matter whether I plug in speakers or headphones, I get no output of audio, the annoying thing is though everything seems to be working fine, the volume control shows the audio(music playing), I have installed and uninstalled the audio drivers several times, I have rolled back the drivers, I have tried both the mobo input, and the front input but no audio what so ever.

    I have also tried disabling my AMD High Def Audio, which made no difference.

    If it is any use my specs are...

    Asus P8H77-V LE
    i5 3750K
    4GB Ram

    Realtek HD Audio :(

    I know this may seem like a stupid response but does your speakers require external power for amplified speakers? If so the speakers may not be getting power.

    Edit:
    Have you tried a different set of speakers or head phones?

    The speakers have external power which is plugged in, I have tried 2 different sets of headphones and 2 speakers.

    My only other thought would be faulty audio on the motherboard.

    You might could try turning off front panel jack detection and see if that does anything.

    One more idea: in Ctl Panel>Sound, select Speakers (as you have it now) THEN click Properties->Advanced. Uncheck "Allow applications to take full control" and reboot

    How would I go about turning off front panel detection?

    Already have that unchecked, thanks for the help though.
