    The VIA High Definition Audio looks like your PC's sound device.

    The NVIDIA is for HDMI audio.

    Is the "Speakers" (the VIA HD Audio) set as the default audio playback device?

    Can you be more specific on exactly what your problem is? If you have the VIA and its set as the default audio playback device the sound should be working.

    missing audio

    I do have audio as mentioned I was just confused that I used to have AC97 which doesn't appear to exist anymore, I was just interested as to why it disappeared.

    AC97 is an old audio chip. With an i5, I would assume you have a current or very recent motherboard that has a newer audio chip and thus the IDT.

    PoeticlyMe, please start a new thread, do not hijack someone else's thread.

    Also when you start the new thread, also fill in the "My System Specs" (including your Toshiba model number). That helps us to help you.
