    Hi,

    Firstly thanks for the forums and support, I've used this forum before searching problems, finding solutions. But alas, this is the first time I've not been able to rectify my issue after searching on the forums.

    My Spec:
    AMD Phenom Quad core
    Asus m4a79 deluxe
    2GB ddr2 Corsair Dominator RAM
    nVidia GFX card
    Windows 7

    There is no sound coming from my computer. There once was sound, but the computer was dormant for 6 months and I replaced the Power Supply, and now there is no sound. I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling/updating all drivers. I've tried configuring my audio devices (Currently there are 4 listed: Speakers, RealTex HD Audio 2nd Output, Digital Output(RCA+ Optical) and RealTek Digital Output).

    When I play sound, levels are shown going up and down, indicating that the audio devices are aware of the sound, but no matter what speakers I plug in I still don't get sound. I've tried 3 different outputs, 1 of which were headphones, all of which didn't work. I have also tried accessing my PC remotely from my iPad through SplashTop, which plays the sounds from the PC, weirdly.

    I don't know what to try now and would appreciate any help or input.

    Thanks

    I'd suspect a faulty audio chipset. The hardware being recognized and the drivers installing aren't an indication that the hardware is actually functional.

    With that being said, try a different version of the RealTek drivers. Try using the latest version available from Asus. If those don't work, try the latest version directly from RealTek.

    Used latest version directly from RealTek which seems to have worked, thanks.
