Try installing latest chipset drivers and double check your using latest audio drivers. Try using different audio hardware and ensure no settings have been changed. Install latest motherboard INF file Too and maybe latest video card drivers. Ensure your speakers are set to defualt. Sounds like the audio settings have changed to a hdmi output even if you don't use it. I had this issue and took me all day to try and fix.

Go to control panel, then view by small icons. Find audio. New window will open. Check the correct sound option is selected.

I hope i have helped answer your question and i am sorry if i've misunderstood. Good Luck!

post #4 of 5
this happens to me very offten on my laptop.... the one update that MS gives me, kills my sound.....

solution to it.... uninstall sound drivers and install old version... (new version does not work)

then set the sound to the default output device you want to use....... DONE

what kind of speakers, x-540? does your laptop seriously have an optical out? are you really using optical or do you have the wrong device set? did you try using 3.5mm jacks instead of optical?

also if your optical cable hit something like got pulled over the edge of a table leg, was stepped on, or chair sat on, or bent/crushed in any way its done for and you need a new optical cable.

EDIT:

just looked @ 540, they don't even have optical. so you have the wrong device set. What you want is the device that says "Speakers" in your audio preferences.

"Digital" = SPDIF
"Optical" = Optical
"HDMI" = HD Monitor/TV w/ speakers

right click volume icon in taskbar
click playback devices
right click "Speakers", select enable. Right click again, select "Set as default device". check volumes. Plug center into green speaker jack in the audio out. Check mixer for volume level. Go back to playback devices, right click "Speakers" again and click test.
