No more audio!

HP500 mini tower
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hi All,

 

I have an older mini-tower (HP500, Win7x64) that is primarily used to play music, via green line out, to a Bose Wave's aux input. It just quit playing sounds of any type after years of flawless operation. I can open "sounds" in the CP and watch the db output meters moving, yet no sound. The Bose is fine, at least the radio input. I plan on further testing with another speaker system as soon as I find one, but I have a gut feeling the internal sound chip is dead.

 

Assuming it is dead, what card is recommended and do they just "plug and play" after finding the drivers?

 

TIA!

 

Russ

It was the Bose, after further testing it seems the aux port circuitry is dead. Replaced the Bose with an (old) Klipsch subwoofer/satellite speaker I had up in the attic and it plays fine again.
