Hi, i'm really clue-less right now.

so i got a Emachines E725 that i have Formated and installed Windows 8.1 on (used to be a W$ Vista) and everything seem just fine, exept one thing, i get no sound from this s****, no sound from eather the headphone jacks or the internal speakers. the sound worked before i formated it.

now the thing i don't get is that i've been looking at the driver a bit now, and the sound card driver is a "realtek high definition" driver, it says that it works like it should, but i still got no sound. i've tryed unistalling, rolling back and updating the driver but nope. i can choose from a microsoft driver or the realtek one, but non works. if i press the speaker-icon in the taskbar and plays a youtube video, it shows that it's suposed to make sound and it looks just normal. i can't seem to find the driver i need because i don't know which one i need and which site i can trust.

please please help me, i need this cheap crap-laptop :I thanks

First make sure the default playback device is the realtek and not something else. Rt click on the speaker down in the system tray by the clock.
