    No sound after upgrading to GTX 1060 (using HDMI cable/dual monitors)


    So yesterday I've bought a GTX 1060 6GB (MSI version) and replaced my old GT 730. So previously I used DVI and VGA for my monitors (as I didn't have a HDMI port on old GT 730). And now I'm using HDMI on one of my monitor and DVI on the other one.
    Right after upgrading to GTX 1060 I've understood that I have no sound on my SPEAKERS and so far nothing has helped. I'll post a list of the things I've already did (which is about 5 pages of Google search all over)
    Tried plugging in only one monitor (the one with DVI) - still no sound.
    Replaced my GPU into another slot on my motherboard - still no sound.
    Uninstalled/Reinstalled/Deleted/Disabled/Removed drivers and devices from Device Manager - still no sound.
    Have my Speakers as default on Sound options menu Click image for larger version.

ID:	126165 (the green bars are moving when I try to play something) - still no sound.
    REINSTALLED WINDOWS and did everything above from the beginning - sitll no sound.
    Enabled onboard sound card in BIOS - still no sound.
    Updated all the drivers - still no sound.
    Might have forgotten some other steps I did, but I've tried almost everything I could find on the Google search.

    Any help or advice would be really appreciated.

    Hi TheAndriusB.

    Since you have Realtek I assume you have a Realtek HD Audio Manager in the systray (righthand side of task manager). Maybe hidden, click arrow head.

    I would snoop around in there to see if something has become set with the installation of card.

    If that doesn't solve I think I would reset my BIOS, which is recommended when you make a major change. Before resetting I would document current settings so you can restore if something changes.
