Issues with my Audio Jacks

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone,

I have this issue where my Audio Jacks simply don't work, they just don't pick up anything being plugged into them however If I was to reinstall windows they would work for awhile and then just suddenly stop. This all started happening since I started to SLI my two 560ti's Is it something to do with the HDMI on the cards knocking the Audio jacks off or something? I have Windows 8 and I tried with Windows 7, same again it works for awhile and then they stop. Anyone got any ideas? it would be much appreciated.

Sorry forgot to mention I have a "Z87-GD65 GAMING"

Thanks,
Gareth

I've disabled all the Nvidia Related items in Device Manager still nothing and I've checked the "Realtek HD Audio Manager" and there's nothing out of place in there

I feel your pain, annoying when these things happen.

So correct me if I am wrong? The device is being displayed in Windows as working, but you are just getting no sound? You say they work for a small period of time after a fresh install, so could it be that Windows or youself is installing a driver that is conflicting with your sound?

Some further questions: -

Can I ask if they work when either your GPUs are idle or when you have one card removed?

Also, what PSU are you using?

Can you see the meter rising when there is audio playing, but hear no sound?: -

Basically at the moment The jacks don't work at all, nothing gets picked up when plugged in. I have a 850Watt Novatech Black edition, I though tit was a driver issue but only seemed to come along when I started to SLI.

Thanks for the reply!

I'm stumped then in that case. Hopefully someone else on OCN will come up with a suggestion or have had a similar experience.

My only other suggestions would be to RMA the motherboard or get yourself a dedicated soundcard either PCI (if you've got room) or an external USB device.
