Default MSI Z97S SLI Krait Edition Audio problem

So, i just built my friend a PC, with a 4690k cpu + MSI Z97S SLI Krait Edition motherboard, Installed all the drivers, and audio ones, but his audio won't work, it's crossed out, every time i try and install it manually, it comes up with a 0x0000000ff error.

Has he been sent a faulty mobo with faulty audio jacks? even tryed looking online for a fix and none worked. updated chip drivers, updated graphics card drivers, did audio drivers etc, nothing worked.

(I can't show you screenshots as i've just got back from his.)

Are these the rear jacks that aren't working, or the front jacks through the case?

What does Device Manager show about the status of the device?

May want to also check the BIOS to see if it's disabled.

Does Device Manager show a status other than "Working Properly" though?

Nvidia will be HDMI output. The other is just improper drivers or not installed right. Completely remove the drivers for the motherboard audio and see if the Windows drivers work instead.

Windows drivers = the drivers that come by default within Windows.
