    How to Check if an Onboard Sound Card is Dead


    does anyone know which are the sure ways to diagnose your onboard sound card and make sure that the chip is "dead"?
    Please share your tips, and ways you would check it.

    I tried to search this topic on the internet, but found very little, and mostly those are software-related tips. I am sure there are some advanced ways to check it in the home environment setup.

    Could you be more specific ? You donīt have sound using earphones, onboard speakers,... ??

    1.- Volume mixer is not muted
    2.- If onboard speakers arenīt working, try connecting earphones.
    3.- Check sound drivers on Device drivers (Control Panel)

    First thing I would check is Device Manager to see if the sound card/chip is there and what the status is.
