    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Check in your device manage for any yellow exclamation, or questions marks. If you find any. It`s almost certain that you`ll need to reinstall the drivers.

    If your computer is an oem build such as, Dell/Compaq/HP etc. Go to your computer manufacturers website for all the drivers.

    Otherwise, go to your mobo manufacturers website, and get the drivers from there.

    You can also download the free Everest programme from HERE It will give you lot`s of info about your system.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Are you sure you`ve installed the correct drivers?

    I suggest you completely uninstall the sound drivers, then download the latest sound drivers from either your mobo manufacturers website, or your computer manufacturers website.

    Regards Howard :)
