Sound gone. Driver problem suspected
Having an annoying problem with sound card (or driver)
It was doing all fine upto the point where my computer just came up with bluescreen and restarted couple of times, and suddenly my sound is gone. After that, I don't get any more blue screens but haven't been able to figure out what is wrong with the sound...
Using on board Realtek 97 on A8N-SLI Deluxe Asus motherboard.
1. On CIMOS, disabled sound, in Safe-mode, uninstalled all the feature under Sound, video and game controller section at System Device, restart, reinstall with the latest driver, yet not working.
2. Anti-virus program, full scan, no known virus or adware spyware whatsoever, also MS Security Patch etc etc, yet not working.
3. System recovery to the point where my computer was fully working and tried to reinstall and everything... doesn't work
If anyone could help me with this, it will be greatly appreciated
PS: I would like to leave "formatting method" as my last resort because the amount of data that I need to backup is hugggge....
