    Herpy Derp, just got back to my desktop and there's no sound. I'm pretty sure its not the speakers cause no sound shows up in windows mixer. Suggest some fixes? Pl0x? :D (Watching youtube)

    If you are using Win7, you can try some of these...

    No sound at all? Is your Volume icon (on the bottom-right) showing muted or 0%? Click it and increase the volume.
    Do some programs have no sound, but others do? Click the icon and click Mixer. See if any particular program running that sounds muted is not muted.

    That not working? Right-click that icon, and check your Playback Devices. Is your audio card showing up and is it checked for usage?
    Is it not there? Right-click inside that window and see if both Disconnected/Disabled devices are checked. Is your sound card there? Enable it and set it to default.

    Still not there? Go into your Control Panel and to your Device Manager (make sure View is not "Categorized"). Go down the list to your "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers". Expand the list. Is your sound card there?

    If not, then you may have to re-install the sound card. If that doesn't work, then it might be faulty.
