Hey all, I was using my audio without issues with speakers connected to the PC. All of a sudden, it started making what I'd describe as a static crackle over the top of the existing audio, which was distorting and ruining all sound on the computer. After I restarted the PC, there was no audio at all. It was saying there's no audio peripheral connected, when the speakers were connected. I tried updating the drivers - didn't help. Tried uninstalling the drivers and restarting the PC - didn't help. Any ideas? I fear it might be a problem with the audio hardware.
