    If I fall who is there to pick me up now.  I stand alone but I stand as the gaurdian for whom I wish to protect.  The sound of my blade utters my name as you fall.  For I shall not move.  For those that forsake the very people are wosres

      Exactly, a chipset driver that you don't think applies may apply.

      Also make sure that the Windows Audio service is enabled.

        Never said that, I dont know if there is or not.  Not sure if it is, I do know that the speaker didnt show in the task bar tray an had to tell it to be there.  Its all right but still nothing.

          No one is asking you to reformat...
          They are however asking that you re-install ALL your drivers.

            My ONLY advice and my last post in this topic: You had reformatted - so you must reinstall all your drivers.

            Good Luck.

                Exactly, a chipset driver that you don't think applies may apply.

                Also make sure that the Windows Audio service is enabled.

                As stated here squall even though you may not be aware of it if the chipset driver is not installed first it may botch up other driver installations.

                    You have chipset drivers for your computer. Do not install most recent drivers, just reinstall THE drivers.
