No sound after installing new EVGA GeForce GTX graphics card

November 3, 2015 at 10:54:34
Specs: Windows 8.1
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

Probably far too simple but have you double clicked the "Speaker / Headphones" icon (your screen shot), levels tab, and made sure the slider is set to 100%?

Are there any errors showing in Device Manager under "Sound, video and game controllers" - usually errors are yellow icon? In Device Manager you could use Uninstall on any sound entries. Provided you DO NOT say Yes if it asks whether you want to remove software, then it will just set it up again when you restart the computer (seen as new hardware). That can sometimes fix issues.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

You didn't mention it but I assume you installed the windows 8.1 drivers for the new video card?
