Audio on New Build not working - gorechild0 - 02-23-2012

Hey guys,

I recently purchased a brand new setup listed below:

i5-2500k
1000w psu
8gb gskill ram
asrock extreme4 gen3 mobo
ocz agility 3 ssd
radeon hd 7950

I'm having problems with the motherboard's audio and I dont know if maybe I didn't hook something up? Windows works fine, drivers for Catalyst installed NP but the audio drivers from the CD and online WONT install properly! My computer doesn't even recognize any devices for audio.

Did I forget to hook something up or should I try maybe a bios update?

Thanks

Don't update BIOS unless you know it will solve your issue exactly. What is your current BIOS version? So, you are saying no devices appear under the playback devices?

Thanks for the reply.

I actually took a step back and decided to reformat and install windows 7 64 bit. My sound loaded up once I put the fresh copy of windows down. I must have messed up the drivers with installing/uninstalling.

All I had to do was install the drivers off the CD that came with my motherboard and now everything works great! Brand new build thanks to Hardware-Revolution education Smile
