Heya guys,

My onboard audio of my motherboard just died a few days ago.
Now i'm forced to use an usb headset, which is fine for games, but music on the other hand...

My motherboard is an P7P55D EVO, which has an VIA VT1828S on it.
i'm looking for a card with atleast 5.1 out, but i have no idea what card would be good, price/performance wise.

Can anyone recommand me anything?

Good observation caperjack. As he said, the audio subsystem is still functioning. You can use the headphone plug to connect with a PC speaker system. I assume you have two plugs - one on the front for headphones (normally) and one in the rear for speakers (normally). They are usually controlled separately so it may just be that your audio configuration has been messed up.

He said it's a USB headset. It may well have it's own soundcard.

RIK is correct. USB headsets usually are not handled by the usual sound hardware. My bad! Missed that fact in reading the original post. However, if the system does have two output mini-jack plugs, try plugging the speakers, or standard headset, into the other one and see if that works, just as a test.

The fact that most of this stuff usually works out-of-the-box in the first place is, in my mind, just FM (Farking Magic)! :-)

That mobo supports jack detection. Does anything happen on screen when you plug the speakers in?
Does the sound chipset show in device manager?

Heya all, thanks for the reactions so far :)

My audio didn´t always fail, it's after a year or so that they started breaking up, then giving up completely. i'm quite sure it's the plug that failed, since connecting my set to another computer worked, but connecting my (working) headset to the broken computer did not.

The computer itself doesn't show any sign of life either when i plug anything in the back. The front jack works fine though. (too bad it's not surround :p)

It looks like the internal sound module itself still works fine, but it's just the plugs that are screwed. either way, sound is gone :)

oh, and my headset is a CM Storm Sirus, which has it's own sound control yes, probably should've said that as well :)

If you are good at soldering, the sockets can be replaced. Or perhaps you know someone who can do it.
