after changing my GPU I couldn't hear any noise from my computer, it worked fine for a whole year and now I con only hear noise on the internet for some reason and .mkv files after changing the speaker channeling. But now apart from those two I cant hear anything else, games, iTunes music and even the simple sound you get from opening a file, how do I fix this? On other forums people just say to "Change the Audio Device Default, to the sound card. In the Audio Control Panel." but it already is and I don't know what to do now. Also my com is an Alienware Aurora (if that helps at all haha) but when I took out my graphics card two very small cylinder like objects popped out my mother board so I don't know if that is the cause? Help would be appreciated :D

And by the way this is my first post n.n

Like to see a better ( more light ) pic of that too as it sounds like a few caps have blown :(.

edit
Onboard sound cards are normally near the rear of a mobo

yeah I will edit my specs soon, sorry for the low resolution on the pic, I dont have any good cams :), but would they have anything to do with the sound.
Hi

Aside from the audio issue;

It is safe to say this: if these came off the mobo [*the mobo will not function as intended] these will need to be soldered back to the board if they are not damaged and or replaced.

nb: if not a dab hand with a soldering iron may be a TV repair shop can assist with this

Edit: +1 AsRock, better pics if possible
-pics of the area of the mobo where these came from

Thanks Law - II, I think that is it because it looked like they were soldered on, I tried to upload better pics but my phone was being stupid :), does it normally cost a lot of money/hassle to solder it on, whats the process of doing so?

edit - im still trying to upload the pics too haha

Hi

If you do not already have the equipment to undertake this, it can cost alot to setup.

-get some quotes from TV rapair shops

-work out cost of what you need
Soldering iron
Solder
flux
Magnifying glass on flexable stand
Tweasers or thin nose pliers
anti static matt or non conductive surface

(if these components from the PCB are not damaged and require replacing)

Which ever one works out cheaper?

whats the process of doing so?
this I cannot answer in full as it is not my area of expertise; may be another member of TPU will be able to assit

Edit: may be have a look here - http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1262892&postcount=11
