I sold a new PC to someone… and in the first few weeks, it had many problems, which were eventually traced back to some faulty RAM.
Well, about 8 months later, I need to revisit this PC, as sound isn’t working.
I look at all the control panel settings for sound, and it looks like windows 7 is no longer detecting the sound chip…
Its possible for the sound circuitry to fail, but unlikely, particularly on a good Intel motherboard (DG41RQ).
Anyway, rather than waste too much time, I decide to just plug in a new sound card, which worked perfectly.
I’m hoping this is the last I hear of this system, as it has caused me many wasted hours tracking down various problems associated with faulty RAM
