I have been having an issue with my computer the past few days. I had a Nvidia Graphics card plugged in initially and my sound worked fine. Speakers and mic were both being detected when plugged in.
However I recently had to remove the graphics card as the original owner required it back. Anyway since I removed the graphics card my speakers are no longer being detected from the font or rear ports (Same for my mic).
I am using Windows 8.1 and have an ASROCK H81M-HDS Motherboard.
I have tried reinstalling 'Realtek HD Audio', checked all the drivers are up to date and cleared the CMOS (which was suggested by the ASROCK Support team). None of which solved the problem.
Would appreciate any help or suggestions as to what else I should try.
