    Okay, I have no idea what to do. i do not have any sound coming from my desktop at all. I have it connected to my Plasma and have external speakers. It once worked before I had to reinstall Windows 7, but now that I have everything else working the sound stopped. I know the speakers work because I tested them with my iTouch.

    My system believes everything is working properly, it has updated drivers, and doesn't give me any errors at all. I tried to uninstall the sound device from my device manager and reinstall it, and still no luck.

    I just did a fresh install of 7 so I don't believe it's any virus or malware problem. So I don't have a clue how to fix it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. :)

    Hi reign70 and welcome to TSG. Have you checked the Windows Volume Control / Mixer settings to make sure something is not muted or set to a very low volume?

    You will have to forgive me because I am not at home, and won't be for a couple hours. but if I recall correctly everything is NOT muted. As much as i'd like it to be that simple of an oversight, it's not. :(

    When you reinstalled Win 7 did you re-install the motherboard drivers and the drivers for your sound card?

    Thank you all for your responses. I ended up fixing it on my own. I tried getting into my Bios and changing the audio from Auto to Enable and that worked.

    WAHOO!!! I gots my sound back! lol

    I am also happy to hear you sorted it out.

    Did you previously make any changes in the BIOS or reset it at some point?
