I Did It! First Build Completed Last Night But No Sound
I am amazed and my wife is even more amazed that I acutally built the computer last night. Great thanks to everyone here who educated me on how to do this in the last month.
Everything is working perfectly, I think, except I have no sound. I put the Gigabyte disc in the DVD drive and ran setup. I just don't have any sound. I tried to open the configuration box by clicking on the speaker in the system tray, and I get 2 sliders, but not the more complicated controls that are in the manual for the mother board. I don't know what I did wrong. Please help me troubleshoot this problem. I would hate to think the sound is bad in my mother board.
EDIT - FIXED, I HAD THE HD SOUND PLUG PLUGGED IN WRONG. INSTEAD OF PUTTING THE 8 HOLE PLUG ON THE 8 PRONGS, I PUT IT ON ONLY 4 OF THEM. THAT MESSED UP THE ON BOARD SOUND AND THE FRONT OF THE CASE SOUND. COMPUTER IS READY FOR GAMES NOW.
