Windows 7: still "no speaker or headphones plugged in", even with brand new card

still "no speaker or headphones plugged in", even with brand new card

Hello all,

Some time ago, sound died. Lightning.
This is the motherboard: Newegg.com - ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G

There appears a little red x over the volume control at bottom right, and when hovering over it, pops up with "No speakers or headphones are plugged in".
OS is Windows 7 64 bit.

Finally got around to buying a sound card.
Got this: Newegg.com - ASUS XONAR_DG 5.1 Channels PCI Interface Xonar DG Sound Card
ASUS XONAR_DG 5.1 Channels PCI Interface Xonar DG Sound Card

Installed card.
Set integrated sound to Disabled in bios.
Asus sound driver seemed to install fine. No yellow ! in Device Manager.

Still no sound though. Still little red x over volume icon at bottom right. Still say no speakers when hovered over volume icon.

Other observations:
In Control Panel - Sound, trying to view some settings cause hang. Have to use Task Manager to kill it. It hangs when trying to view "Recording" tab.

In CP -Sound - Adjust system volume: It displays empty box with words "No audio device installed"

I'm baffled and frustrated. Spent the money on a new card finally, and still have no sound.

Please advise.
Thanks.


p.s. Need more info, just ask. Sorry if I forgot something. Need something tested?... describe and I will do it and post results.
