Alnoth have you tried updating your SP from 2 to 3?

Did you play a cd or any music with WindowsMP to make sure the devices are detecting the sound steam(strobe)?
I had the same problem with a MSI SLI mobo.
I did the bios and devices upgrades.
The speakers were working fine but WMP did not detect any sound.
Finally...I had to get another sound card.
I installed a sound card from another computer which I knew it was working fine. Has been working perfectly since then. (2 yrs)
Had to disable the audio chip in the mobo through the bios settings before installing the sound card.
I concluded that the audio chip connection was defective, though the mobo was brand new.

Just may have failed and nothing will resolve it then. The cost of a good descent SC is so low now it is possible to egt even a better one then what was installed on the MOBO.

ok, i will think it is the chip gone dead... i am just surprised that this is the way it should go - no notice, no software check saying the device is not responding, just simply no sound and thats it, hmm...
i am going to start a new thread concerning my BIOS entering problems and leave this one open for the odd-chance that someone might get an idea between now and the moment i actually go and buy a soundcard.

Good indication of a sound card failure.
i have tried to plug brand new earphones into the output jack on the mobo (not the speaker output jack for headphones) and they also make no sound.
Check HERE for a good starting point on Sound Cards.

Check the Win SP3 update just in case you have remove windows files. (I suspect that happend to me).
I use the network version because (I suspect) includes more drivers. But the single computer version should do fine.
This installation takes a while.
After restart, check Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager.
Open (Check) Sound Video Game Controler and System Devices
If you found any (!) in this areas try to install the drivers require.
If drivers dont upload (in my case I try to update the driver and windows told me the drivers were not found, even when I select the drivers myself), the
probability is the chip is fried.
Shut down and restart and go to the bios to disable the audio chip and shut down again.
Install another card that you know is working properly.
Turn on and windows shuold tell you: FOUND NEW HARDWARE.
Remember that some cards require the drivers to be installed before the card. Others requires windows to identify a new device and THEN you select DONT INSTALL DRIVERS AUTOMATICALLY, I WILL SELECT LOCATION...
This should solve your problem (even if the problem is not your audio chip) because you will be updating windows files (and replacing those missing) and windows will be loking for sound coming from a diferent (device) location.
Please let us know if the problem is solve.
Im a newbie here but Im glad to help.
