Hello, I recently bought a new pc, ASUS G750jw.
I was installing a theme called Hud Evolution, but it wasn't the win 7 version, it was the custom 8.1 version.
Everything was working fine but when i clicked on the sound icon in the notification bar it didn't do anything. I went for several fixes, i tried replacing the sndvol with one provided in a video and in system32 and the x64 winSxs folders but i found out it was for windows 7, so i screwed it up. i replaced sndvol with the one in the x86 version of winSxS folder and i could now access the sndvol mixer, but now i can't use the fn key for it so i'm more in trouble. and volume doesn't show in notifications still. My version is Windows 8.1 x64, not pro or enterprise. i have realtek high definition audio. i also tried fixing it by reinstalling the audio drivers. before i tried replacing audio i would get an error but i don't remember what it was, but all i know is i would click on sound icon and nothing would happen but when i entered run sndvol.exe it would bring that error. I was wondering if i could fix it without reinstalling the os, because its a minor software issue.
