My sound and mic no longer work, and I hear static over my headphones.
I built my PC myself, and it has an ASUS P5Q SE Plus motherboard with onboard sound. I recently moved, and prior to moving, my sound worked fine. After moving, I noticed there was a great deal of static over the speakers/headphones, but I could still hear sounds. And when trying to use TeamSpeak, people only heard static when I tried to talk. Now I have no sound at all except the static.
I thought maybe the motherboard might have gotten shorted out to the case, but nothing I have done seems to fix the problem. I considered the outlet I was plugged into might not be properly grounded, so moved my PC to an outlet not on the same circut as the first, and I still have the problem. I also tried updating the driver, but it says it can't find the proper hardware. Device Manager, however, shows that the device is working properly.
Is it possible that the sound module itself has gone out? Any ideas on what else I could try?
Thanks for any help!
