[ GA-MA770T-UD3P] Soundcard present, but no sound
« on: May 16, 2016, 03:04:27 pm »
Hello everybody!

It happend yesterday when I put out cable connected to my stereo. In fact, this was an additional pair of speakers connected to my PC.

Then I realized that my computer stopped playing any sounds.
I've checked my speakers with phone and tablet - and they are working.
I've tried to connect speakers to front panel - no effect.
Input source is working, because I started audacity and I noticed fluctuations while blowing into microphone etc.
I am using 2 OS: Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14. On both of them I see that soundcard is present. But sound is not playing. I have even tried using live distribution of Linux and that gave no effect.

There is some additional info:
I'm from Poland and actually don't know how to make this information show in english. Now I paste it only to show you that system see the soundcard.

$ aplay -l

What's more, Realtek driver on Windows does see speakers when I connect them (and ask me to confirm that device was connected to the specific output)

Do you know maybe what's going on? Is the soundcard burnt-out?
