audio device dead??
good day, i hope someone will be able to help me fix the problem with my onboard sound card.
i installed windows XP SP2 on a new hard drive i bought and moved everything to a new chassis. After the installation i found out that there was no sound when i play a music file.
Therefore i switched back to my old hdd with windows XP, which could play audio files fine the last time i checked (right before installing windows XP), but there was no sound either.
I then updated the driver for the sound card by downloading it off of the mobo manufacturer's site but it fixed nothing. The only update i have not gotten is the newest windows security updates (I cannot go online with that computer because the ADSL password is currently not in my possession). Hardware manager shows that there is nothing wrong with the audio devices, troubleshooting fixed nothing, and there are no conflicting hardware.
does that mean that the onboard sound card somehow broke during the installation process because there is certainly no excuse for it to suddenly go mute.
Thanks in advance for the replies =D
