My problems just got worse. Tonight I sat down and watches part of a dvd, and for the sound, I was able to plug my earphones into the earphone socket on my speaker control. I came back to watch the second half of it just now, and even that has suddenly stopped working!
I just can't understand why first one, and then the other would just stop working like that!
I went into BIOS and tried to do what you said, but I could find anything that led me to onboard sound / realtec, and I followed all the menus
I don't know where I can go from here, but I hope we can sort the problem.
Also, I don't know if its worth mentioning, but to install my speakers I had to go out and buy a plug socket converter, coz the one supplied with the speakers was a European plug that doesn't fit our sockets. I guess they were shipped from Europe. Anyway, I wouldn't have thought it would matter, but im out of ideas...
Thanks for your support this far!
