A couple weeks ago the IT people here at work had to install a new system board and HD in my computer.

I got it back and everything works fine, but I can't get any sound. When i get a notification like an email or error message or whatever, the computer makes that "beep" sound but that's it.

When I go to the volume control under the start menu it says that there are no active mixer devices available. It then tells me to go to the add hardware deal and add it, but when I do that it says that everything is installed and fine.

I would like to be able to listen to my Pandora. I'm going crazy having to find other ways to tell people to leave me alone without coming off like a jerk.

Download drivers from the motherboard vendor....usually onboard audio is a RealTek chipset.

It is possible. I never thought that I would ever get the Blue Screen of Death again but I had it happen a few weeks ago. I should have taken a picture of it because I don't think that anyone will ever believe me otherwise. It took me a couple seconds for it to sink in and then all I could do was laugh and say "Holy shitt, HOW?!?!"
