I wasn't quite sure where to place this, outside of somewhere related to sound. If there is a more appropriate location for this thread, please let me know or move it yourself (if you're able to, of course).
After fighting with some kind of error or malware, I had to get a completely new hard drive and reinstall windows onto it. After that lengthy process, I noticed that I had absolutely no sound. I took none of the hardware out, except the hard drive, and it was working perfectly fine before. I know neither my speakers or headphones are broken because they worked perfectly in my phone.

General Specs
Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Motherboard: Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0
CPU: AMD FX-6300 6-Core Processor
Audio Device: Realtek HD Audio

I installed all the drivers I could find (the motherboard had an installation CD, plus I checked all the sites that could relate to my components).

Did I miss something? Let me know, and thanks in advance.

A bit of an update. My sound now just merely crackles and makes static noises. No actual audio still though. When I turn on my computer, it usually sounds... windy? It's like a constant blowing sound like listening to a fan from the other side of a phone line. It eventually just dies down to the static every couple of seconds.

Hi SummerH

It's very possible it's the audio-chip that's died, onboard audio is usually the 'weakest' part of a motherboard - If you can't hear any 'sensible' sounds from Youtube, .MP3-files or video, through the noises, then it's not software, seeing as you tried the original drivers on the CDs

The only cure is to fit a new audio-card.

Sorry I never responded.
Thanks, I guess I'll be looking for a good one then. I was pretty sure the motherboard had a built-in card, so I honestly don't know if it's possible to "replace" (I guess just put a new one on it). It sounds silly, I'm sure, but I haven't played with computer guts as much as I just know about them.

Try the Motherboard manufacturers website for the chip drivers for that model board, they might help.

Audio-cards just press into the appropriate slot, the hardest part usually is either finding a screwdriver to open the case, or flattening/disposing the packaging

Don't forget to uninstall the old sound-chip drivers first, it can save lots of conflicts etc. later - Depending on the specific motherboard, you might need to disable the onboard sound in the BIOS

Hello everyone, well, for the past few days now. I've been experiencing this issue of having no sound. On the lower-right corner of the system tray, there is a Speaker icon with a red circle with a white "x" on it. So naturally, I assumed that this must be due to the sound drivers corrupting....
