PC wont detect headset

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just finished my build and everything is working great..... except my audio.

I have a Gigabyte Z87X HD3 mobo, using HDMI as output to my 42" Hisense HDTV. I cannot get any of the audio jacks to work. Not on the front nor the back. Yet the HDMI outputs sound to the TV just fine. I plugged the headset directly into the TV to test it, and it worked that way so that's not the problem. The headset will not even show up under audio devices, in fact, the ONLY thing that shows up is my TV.

I've installed all the mobo drivers from disk already (of course) but now i'm downloading realtek audio drivers from the gigabyte website and hoping maybe that will fix the problem. Also, Skype just told me it couldn't detect a sound card....?

HALLLLP!

Does it show up under device manager?
And if so, right click in the playback devices and there should be an option to "hide disabled devices". Uncheck that.

I had to go in and tweak some settings, new drivers helped.

Fixed!
