It looks like I've come into some bad luck. What seemed to be a working Asus Xonar DG for a while, with occasional series of it not being detected here and there.. I came home last night to no sound from my PC.
I've tried using Onboard Sound again to no avail. I've checked everything from the mute button, to volume levels, disabling/enabling onboard sound in BIOS, installing/uninstalling drivers.
I'm using an AMD Asus motherboard and it comes with the VIA HD audio driver, so I am guessing I have no choice but to use those, correct? Well, those do not work either.
I've tried using headphone and speakers, both functional and working properly. Still no sound.
I was just playing video games yesterday and listening to music just fine, no issues. So, is my motherboard sound chip dead? I just want to make sure I rule out everything before I buy a new CPU and Mobo. I'll be switching to Intel CPU/Mobo this time because I just don't want to deal with VIA audio any more.
I also did a clean Windows Install, and that didn't solve the problem.
End of the road for me?
