[quote=“MiG”]Complete bullshit? What would windows drivers have to do with sound coming from speakers in the BIOS or in another OS?
That’s why the suggestion to try another OS or see if they beep before Windows even starts – to see if the problem is physical or not.
I’ve also see it where the actual headphone jack is damaged, and the little switch inside always thinks that a headset is plugged in.
If you want to rule out the Windows driver issue, like I said, try a different OS (a live CD of ubuntu or something).[/quote]
haha, yeah your right on all points what I should have said was “all that is PROBABLY not needed”. I also have made the assumption that the sound was working fine till the clean install, that after the install is when this problem cropped up at least thats what seemed to be implied. He will have to clarify that for us I guess, if my assumption is correct all the rest is a waste of time. I was actually hoping to rile you up a bit, but you knew that didnt you? I could tell by your out of character delicate reply, that’s one for you haha !
