My onboard sound card isn't working!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Alright so I just installed a new eVGA 8600gts last night after work. Sound and everything seemed completely operational until this morning when i tried playing something in iTunes. I could still listen to audio on myspace and what not. So I figured it may just be an with driver so I reinstalled it. Now i can't hear crap and it's really aggravating. Any ideas on why this is happening? I'm currently running windows vista.

Is the onboard sound enabled in Bios?

audio chip might be all screwy, try getting the old set of drivers back and reinstall and clean out any trace of the old or new drivers your installed. your new video card might causing interference if you've never had audio problem with your old card.

I have to disagree. Most onboard sound cards sound better than el cheapo sound cards. If you need to buy a cheaper one, this one is way better than what I had for onboard.

I've already tried enable/disabling it within the bios. I really don't have the patience to buy a new card because I'll want to get it off newegg. I just want to be able to hear my games with my new sound card. I'll check within my system really quick brb
