My computer was a bit twitchy quitting windows xp Saturday night (which is unusual). I hard reset and then shut down. Next day when I turned on, my audio was out. Nothing through speakers or headphones, both of which worked the day before. I can't think of any diagnostics to run or any way to figure out how to get it back. Ideas? or go buy a sound card and call it a day?

Check your device manager to make sure everything is in order. Try to reinstall the drivers. Reset your BIOS to factory defaults. Take your pick and try it. Just a dump question but maybe it's muted. Did you try multiple apps? I had an issue with my media player the other night where it wouldnt play sound but everything else was fine.

Jay2tall -
I'm such an a** You were absolutely right! I fell victim to the oldest trick in the book - letting your brother use your computer. He muted it on the control panel and, since I have a big mute button that sits on the desk, it never occured to me to check the control panel! Ugh, I was sending evil vibrations to Asus all week too. So - thanks for the good advice.
