Last night my audio was fine, i played ArmA II until 4:30 in the morning with no problems at all through my speakers but i turned on my computer this morning and it's not recognizing them as being connected so I can't get any sound... :( Its not the speakers as they are receiving power as normal and everything and i tried my headset and that wasn't working either.

I am running windows 8 pro and i have foxconn p55a motherboard. I've downloaded the win7 audio drivers off the website and tried running it in windows 7 mode but it still doesn't work. in control panel 'the green thing that goes up and down' is showing that there is sound when i play music or something but it's just not coming through the audio devices. It's just weird how suddenly it stopped working.
