Recently my sound has stopped working. I have the monitor connected through VGA to my video card and audio jack to the motherboard. I have a second monitor that is connected through HDMI to my video card which sounds does play though.

I think it happened when I started messing with audio drivers when I was trying to get my headset working, I may have un-installed the wrong driver or changed something then both the front and back audio jack would not work.

I have installed the audio divers from the motherboard manufacturers.

I have attached several screenshots from the sound panel device manager and the manufacturer’s website.

Any help would be much appreciated thanks.

Sorry, what's the question?

Do you want to switch the audio to your speakers instead of the TV? If so in your Sounds, the third screen shot you posted, you just need to right click on the "Speakers" and click "Set as Default Device", currently the TV is set to the default as you can see from the green check mark.

Sorry I was unclear, yes I would like the device named Speakers (which is my main monitor) to play audio.

I have tried setting the "Speakers" to the default device and have tested them but no audio is played even though the green volume bars appear as seen the the attached screen shot. The monitors volume is on max as well.

Try plugging in regular headphones or regular speakers in the green jack on the back of the computer and see if they play anything.

If you disconnect the monitor that's connected with HDMI and reboot the computer does the sound come back?

Sorry I haven't been on in a while. Disconnected the HDMI monitor then rebooted but still no sound.

Have you tried a simple restore to a date prior to your messing with the drivers?

Since your original post was 6 weeks ago, that may or may not be an option at this point.

Where do you have the green mark in Sound now?
Still on "Speakers", I've tested all the others but no sounds.

I don't have any backup points to restore to. I know it's a bad idea to not have them and I'm paying the consequences haha.
