Track Thread No sound after installing my new graphics card


Dec 2, 2013
I've scanned through multiple threads here, trying many different things that seemed like they would work, yet still no luck. So far I have tried:
Restarting my computer (Just to make sure)
Uninstalling any audio aspects that were installed with the graphics card
Disabled everything have to do with the new graphics card in the sound options
Disabled everything and tested sounds on everything multiple times
Selected my sound card to be the default (Xonar DS) and tried to use the Xonar DS Audio center to change some settings, with no luck
Unplugged everything and cleaned the jacks, and put them back in
and I believe reinstalled my sound cards driver ( 8.1 64 bit)

Any ideas on what needs to be done to finally fix this problem?

Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this

Here are my sound selections: ,
Also I have Realtek, but I've tried making that a default, along with using it's control panel, but still haven't gotten any sound to work on anything, and switched back to my Xonar one.

And the new graphics card I got was the EVGA GeForce GTX 960

do you have any other smaller size external hard disk? that you can do a windows fresh installation?

setup your graphic card when installing the windows do not use the onboard vga... and then before installing anyother drivers to the motherboard install the GPU drivers. after that try installing your Sound Drivers. in this way you can clearly identity what is your Issue.. this is one easy solution that i use on most cases.. have never failed...

and whats your motherboard details ?
