Try disabling Nvidia High Definition Audio in the device manager

First step: You can try re-installing the audio driver (latest)

If this not works, go to device manager and under sound hardware, check view all events to see if there are any errors, we will see further

So we tried all of that and none of it seemed to work. Also another thing to add when i restart the pc the audio sounds really funky, until i go back and change all of the settings that i changed to make it sound normal.

Maybe when you were installing it you possibly hit the audio cables that lead to your audio headers on the mobo. If that's not the case, I have no idea what's wrong.

One or More of the below issues could be the problem

Faulty Hardware
Faulty Sockets or Cables
Incompatible OS
Incompatible Driver

I hope you are trying this on Windows 10.
I think it could be driver incompatibility with OS
Can you try on Windows 7? (also if possible try the soundcheck on earphones to confirm your speakers and cables are fine)
 
There is also s chance of high EMI, potentially caused by your new GPU. With onboard audio there is virtually no cure for this, the only thing that (mostly) helps is getting an add-on sound card, preferably a better model with EMI shield. Expensive and unnecessary, you might say, but this is the only thing that saved me back in the day. I'd rather not have a discrete sound card since onboard is good enough, but I had so much static and muffling and could even hear my mouse when moving it, it was unbearable.
