    Did you try downloading the audio drivers from your motherboard maker's website?

    are you using headphones or speakers? do the speaker outputs work?

    have you tried a different set of speakers?

    when did the problem start> you may be able to try system restore to before the problem, that is if you still have it enabled...

    I found that fuzzy sound on my PC was simply because of a weak PSU that couldn't keep up, replaced it, everything is now fine.
