    Hello,
    Today I have fitted a new PSU and cooler to my PC. The motherboard is a Gigabyte GA870A UB3. I have just tried to play a DVD and for some unknown reason, the sound has stopped working. I have tested the speaker system (Logitech Z5500) and they are all working. I have tested with various DVDs in both the DVD and Blu Ray drives but nothing. I have checked all the obvious connections and I'm at a loss to know what it can be. Any help would be much appreciated.
    Many thanks.

    Thanks huggie. Everything seems OK in Device Manager - no yellow triangles etc and I've checked and rechecked the connections - again everything is OK.
    To be honest, the PC is running the best it's ever been. It's so quiet now which is the only reason why I replaced the components - they were so noisy to the point of being unbearable.
    The only problem we have now is that there is no sound from the coax connection. The strange thing is I can get sound using the optical connection on the PC but not with the coax.
    The setup, which has been working perfect until I replaced these parts, is that we have a blu ray player which uses an optical connection and the PC uses the coax connection, so this means that everything can be controlled through the Logitech control unit - simple!! but for the life of me I can't think what's wrong.
    Any more thoughts. It might seem a silly problem but it's driving me crazy.

    Is your sound card integrated into your motherboard?
    If so, I would go to your Gigabit's website and download the latest version of the drivers for your motherboard.

    If your card is an add-on, get the latest drivers from the manufacturer's website.
