Heres the story.

Last night, we had a power outage. PC turns off.

This morning, turn it on. Everything is fine, boots up normally etc. However, I get no sound through my headset on front 3.5mm. So I switch to back mobo 3.5mm. Still no sound...beginning to get worried. I then test with another pair of headphones... Front and back, still no sound.

At this point, I restart pc, try again, no luck. I uninstall the audio device in device manager, restart, reinstall with new drivers. Still doesn't work.

When I play a video, the Windows volume mixer shows that audio is being played, I just can't hear it.

Any ideas? (I'm on my sig rig.)

P.S
I don't know if I should have posted this here.... seemed relevant though.

But, that seems so unlikely its not even funny. How would just my audio be fried, and nothing else.

Yep, it's not too uncommon. You can buy yourself a cheap-o soundcard to suffice, or you now have a reason to get a nice soundcard.

yeah , he has a MSI MoBo , the unbelievably unreliable mobos , chipset frying is common in MSI

the only thing to do is to get a dedicated sound card , after using it you will thank the MoBo for frying the on-board

the cheapest good card to get is Xonar DG 30$

Nope.

It basically just started working out of the blue.

Sorry I couldn't provide any info, must be frustrating for others!

Probably just a Windows error / bug... more news at eleven. Did a restart fix it or did sound just randomly come back?
