im playing TF2 and all of a sudden my sound dissapears, totally.
i log out and restart the game, same.
i try and play an mp3, nothing.
i reboot, still no sound.
there was no popping or clicking from the speakers when it went.
just all of a sudden, silence.
these speakers are fairly old...
heres the thing, im not really a hardware guy.
granted i hand selected all the parts for this rig, but i had someone else build it.
i dont really know how to work on hardware, specifically, i dont even know which holes on the sound card are the ones i plug speakers into w/o trial and error. thats every time mind you, i never remember which they are.
w/o sound, and w/o any quality replacement for the speakers to even test with, im at a loss as to what to do?
is it a problem with the speakers (most likely), some software (doubtful as ive made no recent changes), wiring... who knows right?
my question i guess is this:
what should i test to see what needs fixing, and how?
many thanks in advance and appologies if this was posted incorrectly.
