    DP67BG Suddenly audio fail - constant white noise.

      Hello, if anyone can shed some light on this I would be grateful.

       

      My son's PC suddenly started making white noise.  It was OK one day, the next not.  One can just about hear audio (distorted) behind the noise.

       

      I have - without curing the problem:

      Checked the speakers & headphones

      Uninstalled/reinstalled the onboard audio driver.

      Booted to live linux

      Removed the graphics card (Asus Radeon HD 6670) which looked as if it might have an HDMI audio element. Replaced it with an old NVidia gt6600.  Still the same in Windows & Linux.

       

      BTW, I have an almost identical setup (same board and a Sapphire Radeon HD6670) & have run parallel tests on it (eg I get sound when booting to a live Linux).  Both on W7 64bit.

       

      This suggests to me that the onboard audio has died, which would be surprising? Any other things I can try before putting in a warranty claim (board was RMA'd only in May so it's only about 6 months old)

      Cheers
