  1. Sound issues

    The sound on any of the apps on my PC is not working. I can hear the windows default sounds such as when a notification comes it makes a sound, when i increase the volume my PC makes a sound when i raise the volume bar, but i cannot hear anything from any of the apps, such as google or any other games. These are the steps i have already tried but nothing worked;

    1. Check your speaker settings:
    Right-click the sound icon at the bottom right corner of your desktop and click Playback devices.
    In the Playback tab, ensure there’s a green tick on Speakers. This indicates that your speakers are the default playback device.
    If your Speakers are NOT already set as the default, this is doubtless your problem. To fix, just click them, click Set Default, then click OK and test whether you have sound.
    If your Speakers are set as the default playback device, and you’re still not hearing any sound, you should to do this >> click Speakers then Properties >> Go to the Advanced tab, and in the Default Format section, select a different sample rate and bit depth, then click Test. Repeat this process until you find a format that works, then click OK.

    2, If the step above didn't work, I suggest to Uninstall your audio driver.
    On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and X (at the same time) to invoke the quick-access menu, then Click Device Manager.
    In Device Manager, expand Sound, video and game controllers,
    right-click on your sound card, and click Uninstall.
    Restart your computer and check to see if the problem is resolved.

    3. If these steps didn't fix the issue, I suggest to Up Date the driver from the manufacture web site.

    Good surround sound headset

    I know you say you're not that guy, but stepping into the $250+ range really brings a change in build quality that might have you never having to buy another set. Otherwise, getting 6 speakers with decent sound in a headset is hard, and that's what you are asking for, and I have no suggestions, but just a bump up the list. *Stick Out Tongue Sound issues :p
  3. Sound problem


    We need to investigate further so that we can identify the cause of the issue. We suggest running the Troubleshooter and see if it helps. Follow the steps below:

    • Type and select Troubleshooting on the Search bar/Cortana.
    • Click Hardware and Sound.
    • Select Playing Audio under Sound.
    • Follow the steps that will be provided.
    If the steps does not work. We suggest downloading a fresh copy of the audio driver from Realtek and see if it helps.

    Looking forward to your response.

    AMD FX OC'ers Club

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
