New motherboard installation, speakers don’t work
I have recently upgraded a few parts to my PC, the main one being a new motherboard. I went from a ROG STRIX Z-390-H to a ROG STRIX Z-490-H. In doing so, the stand-alone speakers I have for my desktop have stopped working. I bought new speakers thinking that the old ones might have just for some reason been fried in this whole process (it was time for new speakers anyway) but now the new speakers also are not working with my build.
When installing the new speakers, new options became available in the sound devices settings, and I see that it should 100% be working. The speakers themselves have the LED light on, indicating there is power and they are connected. I just cannot get any sound to go through these things.
I am assuming I did something wrong in the part installation process – I basically broke down and rebuilt my whole PC in this process of adding a couple of parts. Is it possible I am just missing a connection on one of my pins in the hardware?
Note: I have a separate headset I use for gaming that is plugged into one of the USB ports on the front side of the PC. This is working as intended before and after the installation process. Both set of speakers seem to not be working when plugged into the motherboard itself in the ports on the backside of the PC.
