I have a home built computer that wont make noise any more. It has an ASRock P67 Extreme 4 Gen3 mother board, an Intel I7 2700K processor, a Samsung 850 PRO 1 Tb SSD Sys. drive no sound card. I have tried a second set of speakers but still no sound. I have gone into Device Manager and all the devices for sound are supposed to be working. How can I be sure what I have wrong?

I tried everything in the PCworld article. Nothing worked. In Device Manager there is High Definition Audio Device,NVIDIA High Definition Audio,NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (Wave Extensible)(WDM), WsAudio Device. Then System Devices, Universal Serial Bus controllers. I went into the first 4 and it said they were all working properly.

Test using both the front panel and rear panel audio ports. Also ensure that the High Definition Audio Device is selected as the default audio device. The "nVidia" audio devices are for audio ouput from the video card over HDMI.

Maybe what JIME said, adding to that in many cases if you were using your onboard sound (like Realtek) and you got a new display, or plugged your GPU into a new or different display using and HDMI cable, because HDMI carries both sound and a display signal many times your default sound device will switch over to the HDMI (carried by nvidia, AMD, or Intel) instead of Realtek. Check to see what your currfernt default sound device is.

I have purchased a sound card. I intend to give that a try. To address some questions,it is Win.7 And i do have a monitor on an HDMI cable. It has been set up that way for quite a while. Thank you all for your help.

WilliamP good luck with the new card. At least it gives you something workable while (or if) you attempt to sort out your other sound issue. Exactly what I would have done.
