Wonderful idea! Namaskar! I was in the thick of it and didn't think to
But, it just made the same whines and blooping noises it made before.
Ergo, scratch one onboard audio setup. At least the USB functions
well, mouse and headset works just peachy. What I should do is send
the MB back to ASUS, under warranty and let them check out ALL of the
back panel plugins. Maybe some day I'll get fancier stuff and need
them all working. (more toys!) Thanks again. Ric
I know that you would have done all this already, but just take a step
back and work thru from start to finish what you may have forgotten to
do to get into this sound "mess".
Have you set in your BIOS the correct source for your audio? Have you
selected the correct source for your audio in alsamixer? And in
alsamixer you don't have a clash between channels which should be
muted/disabled and those which should be enabled (I got some HORRIBLE
sounds when I had a couple of incompatible channels enabled)? I know
that you have stated that you have a 5-1 system which means that you
would normally have an external power source for your speakers - is
there a clash in alsamixer re this (another person was surprised when I
told him that in alsa one has to make sure that some channel is enabled
while another has to be disabled otherwise nothing works)? This new PSU,
is it really OK: perhaps it has a severe line-noise problem? (BTW, you
aren't having an ground/earth-loop problem are you?)
I went through every conceivable iteration of setups... nothing worked
at all. I tried using headphones and plain Jane stereo, you name it. I
think it's blown up. The first power supply blowup took out a hard
drive, so it's not impossible it took out the sound too. I've already
have a sound card on the way. It's got to be hardware. Even running the
live CD, I got nothing but buzzing. It's always been a piece of cake to
set up. So, I know it's hosed. I tested the speaker system separately
and it's just fine. <sighs>
