Hello everyone,
I have a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L/S3L motherboard with a onboard sound card, but for some reason my sound isn't working at all. The only time it works is when I open the Realtek interface and do a test for the speakers. I have narrowed it down to the driver, but i can't reinstall the driver do to it not letting me uninstall it. So if anyone could be of help, please do.

Have you tried to uninstall the driver from the device manager or from the add/remove programs box?

Do you have the roll back driver or update driver options in the device manager?
If so first try to roll back the driver , then update it.

Did you install or uninstall any programs or hardware right before they stopped working?
